True / False / Not Given Questions

These types of questions ask the students to compare the given statements to information in the passage and decide whether they agree or disagree with the information given in the passage or whether there is no information in the passage.

If the passage does not actually agree or disagree with the given statement, you need to select ‘Not given’.

Tips

Even if you believe that the given statement agrees with the information in the passage, choose ‘Not given’ as your answer if you can’t find the relevant section of the passage.
