"It is valuable to place people working in related fields together".

Dear Simon, As the answer comes in the middle end of paragraph, so what is the effective strategy to tackle this type of question in this section?

The answer is 2.

Reading 1st or last line of a paragraph will not work. I believe that reading the whole paragraph with understanding is the key!

There is another key issue that is HOWEVER. However refers that the first heading couldn't be answer.

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

2

benefits of working together in cities = job density of cities rose... it is valuable to place people working in related fields together

Note:

My advice is to do 'paragraph matching' sections last. Do all other question sections first, and you'll be more familiar with the passage when you go back to the 'paragraph' section.

Also, remember that you can't always trust the first sentence of each paragraph. You should try to read more - the whole paragraph if possible.

The population and job density of cities rose or remained constant in the 1980s after decades of decline.

I think IELTS examiners and those who create questions are smart enough to not make reading that simple that you only need to read first line. They all ware of all techniques that students find out on the Internet.

However, the ISTP team's research demonstrates that the population and job density of cities rose or remained constant in the 1980s after decades of decline. The explanation for this seems to be that it is valuable to place people working in related fields together

The answer is 2.
