My answer :C

Hi !
My answer: C

My answer is B

Hi, is there anyone will take the ielts exam 12 Sep in the China?

It should be C!


I think C is correct


my answer is B

my answer is C

As the paragraph covers broad topic of rating and results of survey.

Clearly, everyone knows sentence by sentence, but how to choose the main idea is a challenge.

My answer is C

i will go with C

My answer is option A!!!!!!!!

My answer is c
Sir simon can u please explain what is the criteria to chose the best heading,all options are so confusing.please give me some suggestions to improve my score from 5.5 to 6.5 in listening and reading.

I think the answer is B.

While we are waiting for Simon to judge is B or C correct answer, I choose B. :)


C is the right answer,hopefully





My answer is C

My answer is B. " Each city is scored on its stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure "

My answer would be - c

My answer is C

My answer is C.
A and D are only pieces of information of the whole paragraph.
B is just an explanation of how cities are ranked. It's also a piece of info, but not the main idea of this paragraph.


My answer is C



Hi Simon,
Your site found really interesting. I would also like to join in this party.

My answer is B

i think B

I think, C would be correct, because A, B and D don't cover the whole theme of this paragraph.

B is the ans.
