N.B.: This question doesn’t follow any sequence. So, they should be answered after all other questions in the passage.]

Question 1: The monthly access fee is the highest but the call rates are the lowest.

Keywords for this question: monthly access fee, highest, but, call rates, lowest,    

The answer to this question is found in the table.

If you compare the call rates in the HIGHFLIER plan with other plans, you will see that these call rates are the lowest.

So, the answer is: C (the HIGHFLIER plan)

Question 2: Calls are charged at short-distance or long-distance rates.

Keywords for this question: calls, charged, short-distance, long-distance, rates,    

The answer is found in the first paragraph, in lines 2-3, “ . . . .. Calls in each plan are charged at only two rates – short-distance and long-distance… . … .”

Here, each plan = ALL three plans,

So, the answer is: D (ALL three of the plans)                       

Question 3: This plan is NOT primarily intended for people who need a mobile phone for their work.

Keywords for this question: NOT primarily intended, need a mobile phone, for their work,  

The answer lies in LEISURETIME section in the very beginning, “Your mobile phone is mainly for personal use. You use your phone to keep family and friends in touch. You don’t want to strain your budget.”

Here, Your mobile phone is mainly for personal use = LEISURETIME plan is intended for people who need a mobile phone for their personal use, NOT for their work, 

So, the answer is: A (the LEISURETIME plan)                   

Question 4: This plan is a cost-effective choice if you spend just over $100 a month on calls.

Keywords for this question: cost-effective choice, if, spend, just over $100 a month, on calls,   

Take a close look at the table:

The blue circles indicate that the EXECUTIVE plan is the best choice to save money (cost-effective) as the range is just over $100 ($95-$180).

So, the answer is: B (the EXECUTIVE plan)                       

Question 5: It costs 21 cents for a 30-second long-distance call at 2 p.m.

Keywords for this question: costs, 21 cents, 30-second, long-distance call, 2 pm,   

Take a look at the table again and follow all the blue circles.

So, the answer is: C (the HIGHFLIER plan)

Question 6: The connection fee is $30.

Keywords for this question: connection fee, $30,  

Take a look at the last line of the table:

IELTS General Training Reading: Cambridge 7 Test B Section 1; Call anywhere in the state for one low short-distance rate! & Westwinds Farm Campsite; with best solutions and best explanations

This means the connection fee for all three plans is the same which is $30.

So, the answer is: D (ALL three of the plans)  

Question 7: You will have to pay a minimum amount for calls each month.  

Keywords for this question: have to pay, minimum amount, calls, each month,   

In the LEISURETIME plan section, take a look at the last line, “ . . .However, a monthly minimum call charge applies.” We find the mention of ‘minimum call charge’ in LEISURETIME plan only.

So, the answer is: A (the LEISURETIME plan)

Questions 8-14: 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.]

The headline of the text: Westwinds Farm Campsite  

Question 8: The campsite is open all year round.

Keywords for this question: campsite, open, all year round,  

Let’s have a look at the beginning of the text. It says, “Open April-September.” This means the campsite is NOT open all year round.

So, the answer is: FALSE

Question 9: You should book ahead for the busier times of the year.

Keywords for this question: should book ahead, busier times,   

The second line says, “(Booking is advised for holidays in July and August to guarantee a place.)”

Here, Booking is advised = should book ahead, holidays = busier times,

So, the answer is: TRUE

Question 10: The minimum stay at the campsite is two nights.  

Keywords for this question: minimum stay, campsite, two nights, 

We cannot find any information about the minimum stay at the campsite.

So, the answer is: NOT GIVEN

Question 11: The entrance to the campsite is locked after 10 p.m.

Keywords for this question: entrance, locked, after 10 p.m.,   

This information is also NOT available. The third bullet point only says, “Let sleeping campers have some peace. Don’t make any noise after 10 o’clock at night or before 7.30 in the morning.” It doesn’t say anything about the campsite being locked after 10 p.m.

So, the answer is: NOT GIVEN

Question 12: No dogs are allowed on the campsite.  

Keywords for this question: no dogs, allowed,   

In the fourth bullet point, it says, “Dogs must be kept on a lead. Owners of dogs that disturb other campers by barking through the night will be asked to leave.”

This means dogs are allowed but they should be under their owners’ control.

So the answer is: FALSE

Question 13: You are not allowed to cook food on open fires.   

Keywords for this question: not allowed, to cook food, open fires,

The sixth bullet point says, “The lighting of fires is strictly prohibited.

Here, lighting of fires = cooking on open fires, strictly prohibited = not allowed,

So the answer is: TRUE

Question 14: The owners of the campsite may not allow you to camp there.

Keywords for this question: owners, may not allow, camp there,  

The very last line of the text says, “The management reserves the right to refuse admittance.”

Here, the management = the owners, reserves the right to refuse admittance = may not allow you to camp, 

So the answer is: TRUE
