Hey, dude. The answer is in the singular form- which is 'mother'.

Hey, it's not 'mothers'. The answer should be 'mother' - in the singular form.

Hi, 27th question's answer is "concert" or "concerts"? I feel the correct answer is 'concert' because in the options CD, TV etc. are given in the singular form. So the answer should also be in a singular form.

Why is the answer to the question 13 'C' (a typical building of the region.)? I heard the audio thrice now, it has to be "B" - a way to escape from his work.

I've been trying to practice the listening test on YouTube, the ones you have got here and those on YouTube differ in complexity. On YouTube's I could get only 25 of 40, these on your website, I get 40. So, which one will be on the actual test?

Does it matter if I write "two weeks" instead of "2 weeks"? I get confused by this because, in some answer keys, it spells the number but in some, it doesn't?

Unless the instruction is given for using a number, you can write either one. Both will be considered as correct answers.

The answer to the Q. 7 is not 'month', but 'mother' and 24 should be age groups and not male and female.
Reply | Reply with quote | Quote
+1 # jean lasay 2016-08-04 01:24
Should be age groups. I answered age groups. The student told the other one that most of his music is the same with his female friends. So they agreed to use "age group" instead of the gender.

It is male and female only.

The answer to the question 7 is not 'month' but 'mother'. Please correct it. And the answer to the question 24 is 'age groups', I guess.
