A recent study has shown that many mammals are being forced to become nocturnal due to the presence of humans. Scientists reached these findings by monitor and analysing the movements of mammals in areas with different levels of tracking. They showed that human activities, ranging from hiking to hunt to road building, made it more likely that mammals would active at night.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. nocturnal
2. tracking
3. disturbance
4. agriculture
5. emerge

Note: Many people got number 4 wrong. The correct answer (agriculture) is a synonym of 'farming', and the gap is part of a list: from hiking to farming (agriculture) to road building.

'hunt' is wrong because "hiking to hunt" makes it look as if hikers are going hunting. The word 'hunting' would work, but this isn't one of the choices.

'construction' is wrong because we already have the word 'building'.

Hi every one,
I have two questions as below:
Fisrt one is about grammar, in the above Reading test, we have a sentence: " Humans are driving ..., new research his found". Why did we use" his found" her? I would believe that we need a subject rather than a possesive pronoun.
Another question is the meaning of the phrase: " the night time antics". What does this phrase mean?
Could anyone help me clarify these two?
Thanks in advance.

My strategy is to find the correct form of words to fill those gap first, then find the key words in the passage.

A recent study has shown that many mammals are being forced to become __(Adj)____ due to the presence of humans. Scientists reached these findings by _(a gerund -ing)_ and analysing the movements of mammals in areas with different levels of _(Noun)__. They showed that human activities, ranging from hiking to __(Noun/ gerund -ing)____ to road building, made it more likely that mammals would __(Verb)____ at night.


@Huy Luu: I would almost 100% agree with your answers, apart from the word 'hunting'. In fact, the question provided 'hunt' instead of 'hunting'. I guess we should use 'agriculture' since the passage did mention 'farming' together with 'hiking' and 'road construction' among those human activities affecting mammals .

My answer is as follows:
A recent study has shown that many mammals are being forced to become__nocturnal__due to the presence of humans. Scientists reached these findings by __tracking__and analyzing the movements of mammals in areas with different levels of __disturbance__. They showed that human activities, ranging from hiking to __agriculture__ to road building, made it more likely that mammals would __emerge__at night.

Posted by jackson is also good tips but its for them who r gramatically good..

Thnk you, Simon!

Hi teacher Simon.

In your quick guide videos about reading, you said Gap-fill question type in reading tasks are normally in order. But to be honest, I found lots of examples in Cambridge series (7-12) where the answers weren't in order, like IELTS 7 (Academic module), Test 3, passage 1. How can I cope with such questions and what's your suggestion? I would lose my time if answers weren't in order.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi Elma,

I've also seen gap-fill summary sections where not all of the answers can be found in order in the passage. It's usually just one question that isn't in order, or you find that the summary jumps back to information from near the beginning of the passage.

The only solution seems to be this:

Assume that answers are usually in order in the passage, BUT be aware that this 'rule' is occasionally broken for gap-fill sections. So, search for answers in order first, but if you don't find an answer, go back to the beginning of the passage and check there.

Another tip: If you can't find an answer when reading the passage 'in order', miss that question, finish everything else, and then return to the tricky question at the end if you have time.

Hi again.

Thanks for your prompt reply. By the way, last night I watched a video (how to be successful in IELTS in just 30 days), in that episode, the narrator said that IELTS Cambridge series questions are more complex than real exam. Is it true? Do you agree with such expression? If that quote was true, I could boost my self-esteem indeed. :)

Thanks.

Hi Elma
I do feel the same as well. Please, Simon, elaborate on this if possible.
