    Correct Answer
    C. Broadband is more common in most of the countries
    Explanation
    Look for patterns. See the obvious. Be visual - the blue lines are longer typically. One way to organise this is to compare how common broadband and dial up are. The obvious point is that broadband tends to be more common.

    Rate this question:

    Look at the chart. Are there any exceptions to the general rule?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    In the UK and India, dial up is more common. Be careful not to overgeneralise. Broadband TENDS to be more common. You need to include information that is "unusual" - this is almost always relevant.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Look at the chart. Is there any difference between the proportion of people that use the internet in different countries?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    You will need to do some maths here. Part of IELTS 1 is dealing with figures. It should be obvious that the COMBINED amount of internet users is more in some countries than others.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which countries must you include by name when you discuss the amount of internet users?

    • A.

      The USA and India

    • B.

      All of them

    • C.

      Both A and B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. The USA and India
    Explanation
    For me the correct answer is the USA and India as they represent the 2 extremes. You MUST include them. You could include all of them, but ask yourself the question about how you are going to organise that. Difficult. One solution is to group countries together. Think of the geography: the UK, France and Germany are all in Europe. Put them together why not.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The year is now 2009. What tenses are you going to use?

    • A.

      Past tenses

    • B.

      Present tenses

    • C.

      A mixture

    • D.

      It's not clear.

    Correct Answer
    B. Present tenses
    Explanation
    Think tenses. Look at the time on the graph/chart.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    How many main paragraphs would you write here?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      4

    • E.

      5

    Correct Answer
    B. 2
    Explanation
    Okay. There are other tenses possible, but I would go for 2. I amgoing to organise this into one paragraph for relative popularity of broadband and dial up and one for the relative amount of usage.

    If you choose another way - make sure that it is clear and logical.

    The one "impossible" answer is 1.

    Rate this question:

      Trend language

    • B.

      Comparatives

    • C.

      Superlatives

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Comparatives
    Explanation
    There are no real trends here as there is no time frame. What you need to do is to compare. How many different comparing words/phrases can you think of?

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    I will reach there by tomorrow. Which type of sentence is this?

    • A.

      Simple present tense

    • B.

      Simple past tense

    • C.

      Simple future tense

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Simple future tense
    Explanation
    The given sentence "I will reach there by tomorrow" is an example of a simple future tense sentence. It indicates an action that will happen in the future, specifically tomorrow. The use of the auxiliary verb "will" followed by the base form of the verb "reach" indicates the future tense.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Did you liked that book? Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    The question is asking whether the sentence "Did you liked that book?" is grammatically correct. The correct answer is "No" because the verb "liked" should be in the past tense form "like" after the auxiliary verb "did." Therefore, the correct sentence should be "Did you like that book?"
