Would you please help me generate the synonym word tables for reading test 2 in Cambridge 9? I absolutely can not understand 3 all passages, despite reading carefully and checking all the new words. Poor me!

Please help me.

Thank you in advance.

If I choose number 2, what will the correct answer then. I'm not sure, but the article clearly explained the reading habits before and after 1750. Thanks.

3. Reading revolution is my aswer.
1. Libraries are mentioned, however, in just a a small part to support for the idea of READING is a coverage of this time
2. Intensive and Extensive readings are mentioned also, but it's not the main idea that the writer wants to emphasize.

3

I think it's 3

Hi Simon and everyone,

I think the answer is 3 and agree with most of you here, but I saw a comment by SIMON in the first few comments and it says 2 is the answer. Is this the real Simon?. I mean the teacher. If yes please explain to me why 2 is the right answer. If not, Please do not use the teacher name because it is confusing.
Thank you

Hi suma

cheers!

I might have chosen 2 , but according to the key word technique "underwent serious changes" and " the reading revolution" sound synonyms of eachother, so chose 3.
Yes, Suma is right , a student with the name Simon can create a confusion!

The reading revolution

Dear Sir,

my answer is 3

Thanks

3

3, and what is your answer Simon? :)

the answer is 3

3 The reading revolution

3

My answer is 3.

Reading underwent serious changes in the 18th century...Until 1750 “intensively”...After 1750 “extensively”.

1. The appearance of public libraries has been mentioned, whereas it is not the main idea of the paragraph.

2. Intensive and extensive reading habits are also mentioned, while the author alsostates the lending libraries and coffee houses in the following contents.

the correct answer is Intensive and extensive reading habits.

c reading revolution

3

I think 3

In fact it was not easy to decide which is the correct answer "B or C" but of course after reading the comments I made my mind to choose "C" .I would like to thank you Simon ,I am planning to take the exam next September ...

3

number 2. Serious changes mean intensive and extensive changes.

3 - self-correction

Hi boburShox

thank you for your reply

3

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

3. THE READING REVOLUTION

Reading underwent serious changes... The text then explains these changes.

3

3. The reading revolution.

3 the reading revolution

In the first sentence, the word "change" is a clear signal word that relates to the word, "revolution".
