Thanks.

A - 2
B - 4

A.2
B.4

1. There is no clue about the causes of stress,so first option does not suit to any paragraph .
2. Paragraph A taking about the increase related to stress including cost,visit etc. so option 2 is the best heading for Paragraph A.
3.option 3 actually is a part of option 2.
4.paragraph taking about various effect of stress on the body,so option 4 for paragraph B.

Dear Simon,

I like this passage, which is beautifully written and touch on real life issues. I have been through a few times. However, there are a couple of grammar related issues that I do not understand:

1. Why can 'headache' be plural, but not 'backache'?
2. Why is 'difficulty concentrating' , but not 'difficult concentrating' or 'concentrating difficulties'?

Please would you give me advice on these?

Thank you

A-2
B-4

A:3 the paragraph is talking about stress related disabilities,while the answer number 2 is talking about work related stress...different things


B:4

A: 2
B:4

A. 2
B. 4

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

A = 2
(increase in work-related stress = stress related claims by employees has doubled)

B = 4

(This paragraph is about the effects/symptoms of stress, NOT the causes)

Hi Simon,
I have the same question with Jing (headaces-backache; diffuculty concentrating). please bestow us with your explanation. Thank you
:)

difficulty is a noun while difficult is an adjective. that sentence ........and difficulty concentrating , difficulty here represented a problem.
I hope that will help.

Thank you very much for your explanation.

Jing

'Headaches' tend to be more temporary while 'backache' is often a long lasting (chronic) problem. Therefore we tend to use the plies for the former (because they happen more frequently) and singular for the latter.

The word 'plies' should be 'plural'.

Sjm,

Thank you very much for your explicit explanation. It does make lots sense for me now. I really appreciate your help.

Best wishes

My response:

A - 2
... stress-related disability ... employees = work-related stress
has doubled = the increase


B - 4
symptoms = effects
physiologically, psychologically = body, behavior

Hi Simon,

Thank you so much for your work.
