Not Given

false

False because 'giving correct moneyif possible' means it is preferred but it is false to say that drivers do not give change.

Hi

we must first consider the passage then the question which is is an important tip here. The answer surely is( Not given )as the passage says :Buy your ticket which is a suggestion from the driver with correct money if possible. The question says you must which is a limiting word and also there in not any info on :Bus drivers don t give change, so the answer is not given.
Regards

I am backing false.

FALSE

FALSE

If possible - means the possibility

if you have the exact amount that would be good, otherwise the driver will give you change.

The passage doesn't say that you are allowed to buy a ticket only if you have the correct money.

True

Not given

FALSE

False

Question: Must have the correct money

Ans: With the correct money if possible

Well, I think the possibility here plays its role.
I would give a False answer due to it.

the correct answer should be:
you should buy a ticket from a driver with the correct money. otherwise, you might say to the driver: keep the change, as an ethical choice.

In general, what passage has said here:
The first choice, buy it with the right money.
The second choice, in case you don't have the right amount you might loose change because the drivers don't have.

yes, it is tricky Mr.Simon but it is a logical question.

Please give me your feedback about it.

NG - since passage did not mention the existence of change or not

I think the answer is “not given”, as nothing is mentioned about the change I the passage

False

not given

No doubt that the answer is false!

false i think is more close to answer

False

you MUST HAVE the correct money

True.

false

I think that the answer is "True"

FALSE

False

FALSE

TRUE

TRUE.
but sir, Assimilation is difficult. I should remain my country.

NOT GIVEN

NOT GIVEN

false as there is MUST versus Possible.

True.
"Must have" is an idea including "if possible" . The latter can be seen as a sub-concept.

its a true!

paraphrasing the sentence in a similar way which is the main trick for reading part of ielts.

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

False

The confusing thing is that nothing is mentioned about whether bus drivers give change.

However, the phrase "with the correct money if possible" contradicts the idea that you "must have the correct money". It is clear that having the correct money is NOT obligatory.

If you put 'not given' as the answer, I understand why, and I agree that the question is tricky.

Not Given

false

Not given
