The statement in the question agrees with the information in the passage – TRUE
The statement in the question contradicts with the information in the passage – FALSE
If there is no information on this – NOT GIVEN

For this type of question, you can divide each statement into three independent pieces and make your way through with the answer.]

Question 15: The program cost includes internal flights within the USA.

Keywords for this question: program cost, internal flights, within, USA,   

Take a look at the very beginning.

The text says in the first part, “This unbeatable program fee includes:

So, the answer is: FALSE

Keywords for this question: Emergency assistance, legal advice,

In the first part of the text, in the ‘You also have’ section, take a look at the fourth point:

So, the answer is: NOT GIVEN

You can select the period you work and the period you travel; you may want to work for 1 month and travel for 3 or work the entire duration of your stay. The choice is yours.”
