D
mislead = distortions

D

intended to= can lead to
mislead= significant distortions of perception

For me the correct answer is D.
Because this passage is looking for a reason or justification.

B :)
because, I think:
1) newspapers print items=Newspapers and broadcasters
2) that are intended to=are there to
3) meet their readers' expectations=provide what the public wants.

The correct answer should be B, because "Newspapers and broadcasters are there to provide what the public wants."

I think the correct answer is B.

In addition to keywords, the following approach may also be useful in this question.

''intend to'' is an expression used to state goals.

Therefore, the answer should include the goal of the newspapers, either by a word or a structure.

You can state the goal of your actions by adding an infinitive to the main sentence, as is the case in the second sentence.

Newspapers print items = Newspapers are there

intended to = to provide (infinitive)

meet the reader's expectations = what the public wants

- Newspapers and broadcasters = newspapers print items
- intended to = provide
The correct answer is B
- meet expectations = what the public wants

B

I think it is D,,,

D

distortion of perception = mislead readers.

I believe that the right answer is B. Newspapers print items aren't intended to mislead reader because distortions of perception might be the consequence of their actions to meet their readers' expectations. In other words, newspapers provide what the public wants even though this can lead to negative consequences.

B
.....

newspapers print items = Newspapers and broadcasters provide
......

intended = meet
....

expectations = wants
......

D INCORRECT ....


BECAUSE INTENDED AND LEAD ARE NOT THE SAME.

D is correct

D

B

Answer :B
key words :provide what the public wants

B

meet their readers' expectations = are there to provide what the public wants.

B.

I think the correct answer is B simply because:
Newspapers & broadcasters = the writers
meet = provide
public want = reader's expectation

D

D

I think the correct answer is B.

Keywords are:

provide= meet
what the public want= readers' expectations

B
Attended to = are there to
to meet someone's expectation = to provide what they want

I think the answer is B.
be intended to meet = to provide
expectation = what the public wants

B

no doubt the correct answer is B

B

i chose B because i think although the newspaper reports can mislead people(D), but they just intend to provide what the people want. so i guess B is correct.

B
be intended to meet = to provide
expectation = what the public wants

B


B) meet their readers' expectations.

...to provide what the public wants.

My answer is B.
readers' expectations = what the public wants.
I think phrase “can lead to significant distortions of perception” is just consequence of argument “Newspapers and broadcasters are there to provide what the public wants”.

B

B

I think B is the answer. I totally agree with the explanation of Lioness above :). Have a nice day everyone and Hope to hear from our beloved teacher Simon soon :)

B

Keywords:

to provide what the public want = readers' expectations


I think D is not the correct answer because it is not the intention from print media, but it could mislead readers.

i think D Because" distortion of perception "= mislead readers

I think is B.
The question is asking what is newspaper print items' intention, it should be want to meet readers' expectation.
However, answer D(misleading readers) is the effect of the behaviour.

I think the answer is B.

The key words are:
1. Newspapers and broadcasters = newspapers print items
2. that are intended to=are there to
3. meet their readers' expectations=provide what the public wants.

Waiting to hear the correct answer from teacher Simon :-)

My answer is B because 'Newspapers and broadcasters are there to provide what the public wants'.

B is my answer. Many people explained why it is correct answer above my comment.

D
intended to=attitude
mislead=A third source of confusion

The answer I am thinking is B !

Due to people are more curious of bad news than good news.

B :meet their readers' expectations


why go with B

look the front paragraph:

"people are clearly more curious about bad news than good "it is leading the media, print items to fulfil the reader's curious ,looking the forward of the paragraph:

" Newspapers and broadcasters are there to provide what the public wants"

therefore, similar meaning:
Newspaper print items = Newspapers are there intended to = to provide (infinitive) meet the reader's expectations = what the public wants

Dear Simon,
when to do the Ielts 10 and analyze it?

look forward any messages about Ielts 10 with technical and guidance . As I know the Task2 is more challenging than ever.

Best Wishes

D

however and distortions are the key words

B

keywords in the question: newspapers, intended to
keywords in the passage: newspapers are there to
provide what the public
wants

B

B.
meet their readers' expectation=to provide what the public wants

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

B

meet readers' expectations = provide what the public wants

B

B ..
expectations = wants

I think the answer is D

B

People's want means expectations

simon pls give more tips for reading because reading is very hard for me

B is much better than D.The reason is that the question is about the suggestion of newspaper,and B is a assertion(100%) by the writer from the context, but D is just a inference with probability(?%),the writer is not sure all the media can mislead readers.

THE CORRECT ASSWER IS D. BECASUE ODF THE WORD HOWEVER AND DISTORTION.

B is correct

correct answer is B

B is my choice

B is the correct answer,as they write in order to meet the expectations of the reader

B is the correct answer

I think the correct answer is B

B
ans seems to be D BUT said that however can lead to distortion that is after ans

B
