Hi Simon,
The followings are my answers.
1. NG
The passage does not mention any information about entrance.
10 p.m = 10 o'clock but it is related to noise.
2. False
"Dogs must be kept on a lead." This means that dogs are allowed on the campsite but the are some rules.
3. True
"The lighting of fires is strictly prohibited". This means that you are not allowed to do anything with fire.
But I have a question that Do lighting of fires and open fires have similar meaning ?

Dear Simon,
I am very confused about reading module when I give mock test in my home that every question fall me on pazzle siuation.by reading your nice example I am very happy now.

From the lesson above we can notice:
1.In NG statements,there's often the same word/phrase(10pm) from the passage,but in general nothing to concur.
2.False statements represent the real information from the passage,but contradict it,though not directly.
3.In case of True statements,the idea of information from the stem and passage should be identical:while the passage don't include any information about cooking,we can answer the question as True,because both expound prohibition on fire.

1. Not Given; just "don't make any noise after 10 o'clock",the passage is not mentioned about the entrance.
2. False; because "dogs must be kept on a lead" means they appear in the campsite.

If this is an easy one then what about hard?

I don't think fire is essential for cooking. For example, microwave oven, solar cooker, and solar pond cook food without lit fire.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. Not Given
"10 o'clock" is mentioned, but there is no information about when the campsite is locked. This is quite common with "Not Given" answers - you find one or two keywords from the question, but some of the information is missing.

2. False
If dogs must be kept on a lead, they are obviously not prohibited.

3. True
Don't be tricked into writing "Not Given" (just because food is not mentioned). If fires are prohibited, it must mean that you can't cook food on them.

Here's my answer:
1. Not Given- because 10 o'clock is mentioned but there is no word stated as "locked" . 2. False- dogs are allowed in the campsite. 3.True- Just focus on synonyms...such as not allowed or prohibited ; Lighting of fires or open fire..

1.Not Given
Locking of the door is not mentioned, only being quiet at night.

2.False
Dogs are allowed, but must on lead and should not disturb other campers.

3.True
Lightning of fire-open fire
Not allowed- strictly prohibited
