I am going to take the IELTS test the day after tomorrow on 12th. I wish I can bring all that I have learned from you into full play.

There's one thing I would like to have your opinion before the exam:

Could I write every other line when I do the writing section? I am thinking it would be easier for me to insert words and sentences if necessary. It may be also easier for the examiners to read. I have to say, my handwriting is very poor.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Rena

Do NOT write every other line. It makes it much harder for examiners to see your paragraphs. Also, examiners don't like it when you 'insert' things into the text because it makes the text harder to read quickly.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. FALSE

Results are not inconsistent, they are consistent (universal = always the same)

2. TRUE

pigeons can be taught = the pigeon soon learns
do simple actions = peck the button
reward = delivery of mixed grain (food)

3. FALSE

They don't always choose the larger reward. When a time delay is introduced, pigeons choose the smaller amount of food because it is immediate.

Makes sense. Thank you Simon for nice, simple and helpful explanations.
