IELTS Cambridge 7 Test A: GT Reading Module

Section 1: 

Question 1-7: EASTERN ENERGY

Questions 1-7 (TRUE, FALSE, NOT GIVEN)

[In this type of question, candidates are asked to find out whether:

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 1: Customers should inform Eastern Energy of a change of address on arrival at their new home.  

Keywords for this question: customers, should inform, change of address, arrival, new home,  

In the ‘Moving home’ section, the writer says in the beginning, “Please give as much notice as possible if you are moving home, but at least 48 hours is required for us to make the necessary arrangements for your gas and electricity supply.”

The lines suggest that customers should inform Eastern Energy of a change of address not on arrival, but before arrival at their new home as Eastern Energy needs 48 hours to arrange gas and electricity.

So, the answer is: FALSE

Question 2: Customers are expected to read their own gas or electricity meters.  

Keywords for this question: customers, expected to red, own, gas or electric meters,    

In the ‘Meter reading’ section, the writer says, “ . . . Always read the meter from left to right, ignoring any red dials.”

This means Eastern Energy expects that customers can read their own gas or electricity meters.

So, the answer is: TRUE                   

Question 3: It is now cheaper to use gas rather than electricity as a form of heating.

Keywords for this question: now cheaper, use gas, rather than electricity, form of heating,     

There is no information about any cheaper form of heating in this text.

So, the answer is: NOT GIVEN       

Question 4: Eastern Energy supplies energy to households throughout the country.

Keywords for this question: supplies energy, households, throughout the country,    

Again in the ‘Moving home’ section, in lines 5-7, the writer says, “ . . . Tell the new occupant that Eastern Energy supplies the household, to ensure the service is not interrupted. Remember we can now supply electricity and gas at your new address, anywhere in the UK.”

The lines suggest that Eastern Energy supplies households anywhere in the UK.

So, the answer is: TRUE                   

Question 5: The Energy Efficiency Line also handles queries about energy supply.

Keywords for this question: Energy Efficiency Line, handles, queries, energy supply,   

In the ‘Energy Efficiency Line’ section, the writer says, “If you would like advice on the efficient use of energy, please call our Energy Efficiency Line on 0995 7626 513. Please do not use this number for any other enquiries.”

It means the Energy Efficiency Line only handles queries about the efficient use of energy and nothing else.

So, the answer is: FALSE

Question 6: All complaints about energy supply should be made by phone.

Keywords for this question:  all complaints, energy supply, by phone,     

In the ‘Complaints’ section, the author mentions, “We hope you will never have a problem or cause to complain, but, if you do, please contact our complaints handling team at PO Box 220, Stanfield, ST55 6GF or telephone us on 01316 753270.”

This means customers can either make direct contact on the given address or make telephone call on the given number.

So, the answer is: FALSE

Question 7: Customers are not charged for the call when they report a fault in supply.

Keywords for this question: customers, not charged, call, report a fault in supply,   

In the ‘Supply Failure’ section, the author mentions, “If you experience any problems with your electricity supply, please call free on 0600 7838 836, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

This means there is no charge for making a call for reporting a fault in supply.

So, the answer is: TRUE

Questions 8-14:

The headline of the passage: Using your new microwave oven  

Questions 8-14:  (List of headings)

[In this question type, IELTS candidates are provided with a list of headings, usually identified with lower-case Roman numerals (i, ii, iii, etc,). A heading will refer to the main idea of the paragraph or section of the text. Candidates must find out the equivalent heading to the correct paragraphs or sections, which are marked with alphabets A, B, C and so forth. Candidates need to write the appropriate Roman numerals in the boxes on their answer sheets. There will always be two or three more headings than there are paragraphs or sections. So, some of the headings will not be used. It is also likely that some paragraphs or sections may not be included in the task. Generally, the first paragraph is an example paragraph that will be done for the candidates for their understanding of the task.

TIPS: Skimming is the best reading technique. You need not understand every word here. Just try to gather the gist of the sentences. That’s all. Read quickly and don’t stop until you finish each sentence.]

Question 8: Section A

In Section A the author says, “As microwave cooking times are much shorter than other cooking times, it is essential that recommended cooking times are not exceeded without first checking the food.”

Here, microwave cooking times are much shorter than other cooking times = rapid cooking times in microwave,

So, the answer is: v (Rapid cooking times)

Question 9: Section B

In Section B the author says, “Take care when heating small amounts of food as these can easily burn, dry out or catch fire if cooked too long. Always set short cooking times and check the food frequently.”

Here, small amounts of food = small quantities of food,

So, the answer is: vii (Small quantities of food)

Question 10: Section C

In Section C the writer states, “Take care when heating ‘dry’ foods, e.g. bread items, chocolate and pastries. These can easily burn or catch fire if cooked too long.”

Here, ‘dry’ foods = foods which do not have much moisture,

So, the answer is: ix (Foods low in moisture)

Question 11: Section D

In Section D the author mentions, “Some processed meats, such as sausages, have non-porous casings. These must be pierced by a fork before cooking, to prevent bursting. Whole fruit and vegetables should be similarly treated.”

Here, non-porous casings = skins through which water cannot enter easily,

So, the answer is: ii (Foods with skins)

Question 12: Section E

Section E says, “When heating soup, sauces and beverages in your microwave oven, heating beyond the boiling point can occur without evidence of bubbling. Care should be taken not to overheat.”

Here, soup, sauces and beverages = liquids,

So the answer is: x (Liquids)

Question 13: Section F

The first line of Section F says, “When warming up food for a second time, . .. .”

Here, warming up food for a second time = re-heating,

So the answer is: i (Re-heating)

Question 14: Section G 

In section G, the writer says, “It is important for the safe operation of the oven that it is wiped out regularly. Use warm, soapy water, squeeze the cloth out well and use it to remove any grease or food from the interior. The oven should be unplugged during this process.”

Here, wiped out regularly = keeping oven clean regularly,

So the answer is: iii (Keeping your oven clean)
