1. False
Intended for attaching tickets to fabric + patent recognized that it could be used to attach papers together. (Note: it doesn't say specifically only patented for one specific use, but I assume logically that it was patented for other uses as well). So I put False

2. Not Given
Although Fay's design was functional and practical, the design is not same as the modern paper clip.
So I put Not Given

3.True
The most common type of wire paper clip still in use,..., it was never patented.

Hi Simon,
Below are the answers.

1)False
2)Not Given
3)True

1) False
-- "the patent recognized that it could be used to attach papers together."

2) Not given
-- The text doesn't say whether Fay's design was less or more practical than the subsequent ones.

3) True
-- "The most common type of wire paper clip still in use ... was never patented."

1. True

This clip was originally intended primarily for attaching tickets to fabric.

intended primarily for attaching tickets to fabric = only patented for one specific use

although the patent recognized that it could be used to attach papers together(Ignore this part, it is just guessing)

2. Not Given

Although functional and practical, Fay's design along with the 50 other designs patented prior to 1899 are not considered reminiscent of the modern paper clip design

functional and practical = practical

But it did not compare the past and present.

So Not Given

And it says the 50 designs are different from the modern paper clip design.(which is not relevant to being practical, so it should be ignored)

3. True

The most common type of wire paper clip still in use, the Gem paper clip, was never patented

still in use = most people use today

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. False
2. Not given
3. True

A few people have explained these answers well in their comments above.

1. Samuel B. Fay’s paper clip was only patented for one specific use.

"This clip was originally intended primarily for attaching tickets to fabric, although the patent recognized that it could be used to attach papers together."
=> False
2. Fay’s paper clip was not as practical as those we use today.
"Although functional and practical, Fay's design along with the 50 other designs patented prior to 1899 are not considered reminiscent of the modern paper clip design known today."

Fay's and other designs are practical and functional. However, it is not same style as modern paper clip. It doesn't compare the "practicalness" between Fay's design and modern paper clip.
=> Not given

3. Nobody has a patent on the paper clip that most people use today.

"The most common type of wire paper clip still in use, the Gem paper clip, was never patented."
=> True

This is the real answer:
1. False

"This clip was originally intended primarily for attaching tickets to fabric, although the patent recognized that it could be used to attach papers together."

It does mean that the clip was for attaching tickets to fabric and attaching papers together.

2.Not Given

The paragraph doesn't clearly tells about practical usage instead it tells about its design.


3. False

reread this paragraph because almost all got wrong with the answer.

"Although functional and practical, Fay's design along with the 50 other designs patented prior to 1899 are not considered reminiscent of the modern paper clip design known today"

Meaning 50 other designs are patented after 1899 although the designs were different now and in the past.

F it can be used ticket and paper
T not considered reminiscent of the modern paper clip design known today.
NG cannot see anything that refers to nobody
