      /drəg/

  10. Dear madam,

    Thank you for providing sample answers. Below are some suggestions from me. Hope you will take time to read and consider my opinion. =)


    1) For question 2, why is it that North America is not included? Shouldn't the answer be 'B' as the population of Northen America only 'more than doubled' for the last 60years?

    2) For question 7, Figure 2 shows 'distribution of world population by region for 2012', but not 'difference in number of people from 1950-2010'. So, shouldn't the answer be 'B'? For we can know for sure that the statement in the question is wrong, therefore, making it a FALSE statement.

    3) For question 11, isn't the writer's main intention is to highlight the 'successful mobile service' and not 'successful collaboration' since the whole passage is mainly about the mobile phone services?

    4) For question 14, the writer wrote that 'Richard Heeks ... sorts them by their impact on development'(line 24). This doesn't mean that the following 3 paragraphs are mainly about the 'impact of mobile services on development', right? If you read properly, I think you will feel that 'A' is definitely a better answer.

    5) For question 26, in my opinion, the writer cites the example to show facts and convince the readers that our lives are supported by the oceans and we are dependent on it. The main idea in this paragraph is that the oceans support life and the writer is making a point by citing the example. Hence, 'A' is a better answer.

    1. Just one more question, for question 13, shouldn't the answer be 'B' as paragraph 7 is all about 'mobile trading platforms'?

      Please answer my questions to clear my doubts ~~ Thanks :)

    2. hi, just wondering what are your answers for 30~45? Just wanna do some comparison here see whether how many I got it wrong again :(

      Delete
    3. HI.. I was rushing when i was typing this so i did make two typos... which are number 2 and 7 (but the explanation i gave does correspond with the right answer) ..

      as for the others... well

      11) does it really show that this method is SUCCESSFUL? It says 'could make a dent' therefore.. the only success that is certain is the collaboration between the two parties.

      13) did you forget the word 'except' in the question?

      14) pls read line 24 (he sorts them out by their impact on development.. one category is...) line 28 is still about the same services and line 35 show it is in the same category.

      26) I accept your reasoning. :)

      Delete
    4. Thanks so much madam! :D

      I finally got all of them clear.

      As for question 13, i typed it wrongly by mistake for the answer. I wanted to type 'C' but I ended up typing 'B' instead... I'm really careless... =( Anyway, I saw your reply to Chow for that question and agreed on your answer.

      After checking all of my answers by referring to yours, I found out that I made 11 mistakes. And the worst part is that among these 11, 3 are silly careless mistakes! Arghhhh! :'(

      (Fyi, I took MUET before last year, but only got band4 as my writing part only scored 35/90. So i decided to retake but still......)

      I really wish I can get Band5... *fingers crossed*

  11. hi,

    2) - shouldn't this be C? since it is not stated what is the total multiplier, we can't just take the (north+south)/2 unless we assume the population of north = south, shouldn't it be unstated?

    7) - The bar chart already stated it is 2010. So it should be B right?

    11) - the whole idea of the article is to promote mobile apps. So the 2nd paragraph the writer is trying to introduce the powerful of mobile application. This should be A right?

    13 - It mentions that farmer can sell their product at the right time, this shows the "selling". For 'Buying', "for people with some cash to spare", this idea shows buying right? In the article it did not mention about apps specifically for poor people. The author is trying to illustrate that everyone can own a mobile phone even poor people. So, my answer = C.

    16 - My answer is C as I couldn't find info about 'show off athleticism'. My I know which sentence mention about it?

    26 - Photosynthesis produces oxygen to support our life, it does not emit carbon. So I think should be C.

    1. 13) refers only to paragraph 5: 'connect the excluded' means connect those who cannot afford it and provide info, no mention of buying and selling.

      16) athleticism is mentioned in line 25

  12. Madam, may i ask about Writing papar

    Topic "Man's careless attitude is the main cause of the destruction of the environment"

    "Man" means Human or Boy, Human = boy + girl, two things is different, so the topic "Man" means which one ?

    I adi check dictionary, but seems like both also can

    Second " environment" include infrastructure ? Bcos i got mention people destruct environment, such as pain at the wall, destruct public equipment

    1. Hi, sorry for being nosy... But i think the word refers to 'mankind'.


      This is because if it's referring to males, the sentence would then be written as,

      'Men's careless attitude is the main cause of the destruction of the environment'. (Note that the 'men' is in plural form to indicate gender.)
      OR
      'A man's careless attitude is the main cause of the destruction of the environment'. (Note there is the article 'a' in front of the sentence to show that it's referring to gender.)

      Delete
    2. Man refers to humans in general.. not the gender. also environment means our surroundings, both the natural and man-made surroundings. as for 'careless' it means not careful, and it CERTAINLY DOESN'T MEAN 'care-less'. So to write a good essay, it has to describe how humans are careless in preserving our environment. anyone wants to send me a sample? :)

    And my Writing part not very good, average is 30 marks, highest 39 marks before.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Omg, by comparing my answers, I have got 16 mitakes D:
    and for the writing part, the questions is :
    A man's careless attitude is the main cause of the destruction of the environment'
    Some of my friends interpret the word careless as "care-less", it means man shows very little care to the environment. But I interpret it as "careless" ( tidak berhati-hati ) , so what're we supposed to write?
    I feel like I'm totally or on the verge of digressing D:

  16. Madam, for the writing part, i wrote that man carry out excessive development, have the nature of always wanting more than they already possess and have the attitude of being above harming something in particular for personal gain, as illustrations of their careless attitude, do you think my points were appropriate and accurate?Please give me your honest opinion, thank you madam.:)
