Why answer to question 11 is False? It seems to be N/G. There is no clue for Sunday mornings openings.

Bcs Coastside Power Office hours are Monday to Friday, 8.30 am to 4.30 pm (open on weekdays)

The Coastside Power Office is open on Saturday mornings
Ask question yourself than to looking at the answer.
(Not open on Nonday to Friday). That's why the answer is false.

Whenever you ask a question, first, question yourself. Suppose if they ask questions like this - The Coastside Power Office is open on March? The answer is NA.

Because it gives the information about all the opening hours which means any other hours and days it is closed. Only if it says Saturday it is open but doesn't describe the timing, so it should be not given.

Because Lunch timing and days are Tuesday to Friday, not on Saturday and Sunday. While other two options consists of Saturday and Sunday too.

Hi IELTS Mentor,

I know this is out of the topic but still, please kindly enlighten me.

I noticed that "instalment" was spelled with only a single "L". When I googled it, it showed that this is used mainly in british spelling. In the US context, it is spelled with a double "L".

Now my question is, since I'm more of a US english user, will IELTS credit the spelling with the double "L"? The same goes for the spelling of "enrolment", "fulfilment", etc.

Thanks a lot!

Hi Wilson,

Using the US spelling is perfectly okay in IELTS test.

In question 12, it says payment can not be done over the phone by using your credit card so credit card is the word which is not mentioned at all. So why it's false why not NG ? Kindly let me know overall. I am really thankful to you guys. I wish I could get same easy passages in real exams. AMEEN.

B is the correct answer, Lunch: Tuesday-Friday which means working days, Saturday & Sunday are excluded, Monday is not shown to distract you!

Hi
For question 3, It is only open for lunch on weekdays, the shown answer is B, this puzzled me.
It should be C ?

Notice it's written weekDAYS, not weekends! I didn't see it too. I automatically read weekends. Very confusing!
