Dear Sir Simon,can you tell me that how much time personally do you spend when you complete both writing tasks 1 and 2?

I have been practicing writing tasks by following your pattern for more than a month and mostly I spend about to 2 hour to complete both tasks.

1A) a skill that takes a short time to master
= It's a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time.

2) just asks we: the first part of the book.
A) convince us that working deeply has great value
= he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits

1.B(a skill that few people develop nowadays)
In short, deep work is like a super power in our increasingly competitive twenty-first century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep,

2.A(convince us that working deeply has great value)=Instead of arguing distraction is bad, he instead celebrates the power of its opposite.

1. B
Key words:
"And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep"
2. A
Key words:
"Dividing this book into two parts, he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits"

I think 1. is a tricky question.

1. A
a short time to master -- quickly master, in less time
2. A
massive benefits -- great value

1. A

1. C
Modern communication tools = e-mail and social media
Can enhance = there's a better way

Has great value = produce massive benefits

Hi seren taşkara,

Thanks,

B,A

1. B - most people have lost the ability to go deep = a skill that few people develop nowadays.

2. A - he first makes the case that in almost any profession, cultivating a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits = convince us that working deeply has great value

What are the correct answers?

1.B
2.A
I think it`s a little tricky in Q1
A) a skill that takes a short time to master
it means we just spend a short time to master the skill, not to quickly master complicated information
so A is wrong

1.B 2A

1 A
2 A

1,A a short time to master=quickly master
2,A working deeply has great value=a deep work ethic will produce massive benefits

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. B
2. A

Several people have correctly explained these two answers above.

Note: In question 1, answer 'A' was a trick. It doesn't say that deep work is "quick to master", it says that deep work allows you to master complicated information quickly.
