1. The topic usually can find after strong words (However, but, mainly, mostly, also.....)

But if the hype turns out to be right, this may be the starting point for an energy revolution in the UK

However, from now, energy produced but not used during the day will charge the Powerwall and can then be used to provide them with the energy they need when they’re at home and their lights, music centres, computers, televisions and myriad other devices need feeding.


2. Synonym:

herald = be the starting point for

(1)+(2) => C) New device could herald energy revolution.

C

C is correct. The others are wrong because of the following:
- A:there is no UK revolution yet.
- B:There is no comparison with other area. Wales is simply an example
- D: The article does not only mention a problem, but also suggests a solution, which potentially revolunizes UK energy sector

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

C
new device = a cutting-edge bit of kit
could herald = may be the starting point

About the other answers:

A - too general
B - the article isn't about technology in Wales
D - one specific detail, but not the subject of the whole article

Hello Simon,
You seem to be a bit biased toward "C" in your multiple choice questions since most correct answers have been "C".

I want to know how can I find what is the first question is beginning from. For example my first question is yes no not given, how I know where is the first answer in the passage.
