In answer 4, it is mentioned about pocket. So how it is possibly not given? False is right answer.

I agree that it mentioned about pocket, but not mentioned about (how many pockets are there). That's why it should be NG.

Hi, I have confusion about question 2. The option is available in men shirt so its answer should have F. There is no option for Children shirts, hence it should have NG instead of F. Requesting for comments and explanation.

Question number 3 asked for shirts, but in the passage it was mentioned on children's t-shirts. How can both be compared? Can someone explain please?

I think this exam is not for English language evaluation. It is has something related to logic of thinking that are different between people.

Got wrong answer for 2 and 4, thought its false, the question is number of pockets, but its indicated 4 sizes so since its not mentioned so answer is not given.

The answer to the 4th question must be False. I don't understand how come it is saying not given..

It is clearly saying "it has large strong pockets" so it should be False. Please correct me if i am wrong.

The answer to No 4 is Not Given. There is no place where such statement was mentioned. In fact, there wasn't anywhere child's jacket was mentioned.
