Ok, done. Open to suggestions. As always, be civil and well mannered or I will delete your comments if they are offensive/rude. Have a nice day!

p/s:  21/45 for a Band 3, 27/45 for Band 4. However, this is NOT  a guarantee as you would need to perform just as well in the other 3 papers to maintain this result.

  2. hi ms audrey, why cant no 5 be B (false)? Table 1 is about travel behaviour but 2 is on expenditure, so i'm assuming that its a false?

    1. Expenditure is also a type of behaviour. As suggested by business and economy concept.

  5. Why is question 1 not c? They did not mention the percentage of Adult travellers and it might be 15% or 10%? In which case young travellers exceed?

  10. i am quite sure that 28 is C? the phrase "may be a way" means the same thing as possible application? Please correct me if i am wrong.

    1. I think no 23 should be A as the passage said no of people reading declined by 50% , so it mean the finding useful to decline no of reading

      Delete
    2. I agree with u. What about others? Give ur opinion

      Delete
    3. Replying to Anonymous number 2. Other answers of mine which are different from Miss Audrey's suggested answer are for question

      8. My answer is C. Because from what i understand the passage says that "the tradition of sending good wishes .....beginning with chinese and egyptians". Question number 8 states that the "practice of sending greeting cards for all occasions began in the UK". Good wishes dont necessarily mean greeting cards, it can be a direct verbal wish, or a gift or a letter etc. So we cant conclude that greeting cards go way back to chinese and egyptian time. We also cant say the answer is true because we cannot find anything in the passage to support.

    4. 24. My answer is B. Primack said "this is worth emphasizing BECAUSE overall in the US, reading books is decreasing, while nearly all other forms of media use are increasing". from my POV i think the key word here is "because". Primack emphasized the statistic because of the fact that the number of people who read is decreasing, not because he wants people to pick their books back up but to forecast that the depression among teenagers will increase.

    5. I also think that 28 should be C, 23 should be A, and 8 should be C.

      Delete
  11. 27. My answer is B. This answer is a shorter version of what Primack said in paragraph 7. "We sort of thought to ourselves that when you have depression, your brain is not working properly..... flop down in front of a tv and turn on whatever's there" from my understanding this means that people with depression are putting themselves down. they dont believe in themselve, they would rather watch tv. in other words, they are self-discouraging.

    ReplyDelete
  14. sorry, but im quite confuse for number 1.....it says that 20% are the youngsters and we can assume that the adults are 80% but we need to remember we have the senior citizens,right?so i answered C,NOT STATED.....anyways thanks(:

    ReplyDelete
  15. First and foremost, just wanted to thank you, Madame for sharing your answers. I've been itching to know. ��But why can't 15 be B? I'm given to understand that statistics mean a fact or piece of data obtained from a study of a large quantity of numerical data and in my opinion 10% is a piece of data obtained from a study. Also can 44 be A? Regarding question 36, let alone carries the meaning used to indicate that something is far less likely or suitable than something else already mentioned, so does this mean that it is a comparison? Sorry for asking so many questions. ��

  16. me too..i also answer 15-B AND 44-A

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think the answer of question 24 should be C even though A is also correct because "reading books is decrasing, while nearly all others forms of media use are incrasing.'' This means that the teenagers tend to use othes form of media since it is easy to get but now become harder to them to get the books so actually they should not be exposed to too many forms of media.
