Dear Simon,

May I have your kind attention regarding this True, False, Not given question below from Cambridge IELTS 13, Test 3, Passage 1:

Question 11 Coconut found on the west coast of America were a different type from those found on the east coast.

Relevant part of text from the passage

16th century trade and human migration patterns reveal that Arab traders and European sailors are likely to have moved coconuts from South and South East Asia to Africa and then across the Atlantic to the east coast of America. But the origin of coconuts discovered along the west coast of America by 16th century sailors has been the subject of centuries of discussion. Two diametrically opposed origin have been proposed: that they came from Asia, or that they are native to America.

1. FALSE

Personality trait = traits are aspects of personality
change from one moment to the next = (opposite to) relatively stable over time

2. TRUE

Some systems define traits = In some theories and systems, traits are

on a scale = along this spectrum

one descriptor to another = either has or does not have, but in many others traits are dimensions such as extraversion vs introversion
