Till now I haven't felt understandable about the question 2 because I think that there's no information about individual economies and the main problem which we consider here is " tourism affects individual economies". As a result of this analysis, I chose " NG".
Can anybody point out that why my thougt is misleading?
Thank all very much.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. Not given

The key word that is missing from the passage is "greater". There is no comparison between the spending by residents and visitors, so we have to answer "not given".

2. False

It is NOT easy to show the effect of tourism statistically, because the passage says "difficult for the industry to develop any type of reliable or credible tourism information base".

Phong,

You are over-thinking the phrase "individual economies". It just means "in any country", and we have the phrases "in all nations" and "regional, national and global economies" in the passage.

thank you, teacher Simon.

Teacher Simon,
Thank you so much for your help.
