1-True-- while the same meaning could be conveyed to roughly equivalent powerful tea.
2-False- which is preferred over strong computers.
3-Not Given- because there is no comparison with oters. The text says- the words become glued together in our minds.

Dear Simon,
I have some questions related to writing essays of the IELTS.
1) Which arrangement is better in agree/disagree questions? the introduction with my personal opinion then one paragraph which supports and enforce my point of view after that the other opinion and lastly the conclusion OR introduction, other opinion (which is not congruent with my point of view, then a paragraph to support my view with the conclusion at the end… in fact, I read somewhere in your site that you prefer the first choice, then I read somewhere else that you prefer the second choice. Please advise Simon.
2) How many band score will I lose if I wrote only 180-200 word for task 2??

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Yours sincerely,

Hashem Massad

Response for Ajay Sharma: Hello! Sorry for my delay, I was out of town.
So, for reading my advice for you is to read a lot at first....everything you like to read without any pressure. Then, start to do IELTS test in reading without clock. Just enjoy your reading and try to understand what the question ask you to do. After a week or two, try to read and respond at the question using o clock. Divide your time in three parts: 18 min, 19 min and 23min. It will be very hard to manage your time at the beginning, but with practice you will improve your score.
Regarding the writing, I must confess that I worked with a private teacher for two months; she gave me homeworks and corrected my essays. I scored 7. But the second time, I prepared by my own, following the Simon's advice every day. For writing I read a lot of essays from Internet just to have some ideas about different topics, but always trying to respect the Simon's structure.
I wish you good luck!

1. True - While the same meaning could be conveyed through the roughly equivalent powerful tea, the fact is that English prefers to speak of tea in terms of being strong rather than in terms of being powerful
2. False - powerful computers which is preferred over strong computers.
3. NG - nothing says about this

Here are some answers for Hashem:
1. It really doesn't matter. Many candidates worry about this but it is not very important. What is important, is making sure the structure supports your opinion. This means making sure that if your opinion is strong, then the arguments and topic sentences point in this direction. I usually tend to put the side I agree with second, but just do what is comfortable for you.
2. If you wrote this length then you will lose around half a band score for Task 2.
