20 should be 'false' because it has only 'minimum' and 17 should be false because it is only 'similar in work'.

18# InterExchange is a part of the government program. The answer should be 'NG'. They haven't mentioned that if it's a government's program or not.

It is written as "a non-profit, non-governmental organisation" which means that it's not a part of the government program.

Why question 15 is not 'NG' if no information about flights inside the USA is given in the reading passage?

It clearly states that "onward travel in the USA is not included".

I think #20 is 'False' because the contradict of question is 'true'. There is a lower age limit for applicants 18. The right answer is 'False'.

The answer to the question 17 is true: "InterExchange can also offer you work opportunities in other countries." - which means that InterExchange offers similar programs in countries other than the USA.

Why is the answer 'NG' for the question 20? It's written clearly "over 18 years old by November in the academic year...". That means there is no upper limit!

The passage doesn't have anything related to the upper age limit. Hence it is 'not given'.

Yes, you are right, but is reflects somehow to different approaches. If there is no mention of the upper age limit, we might think the statement is 'false' but yes, it is in fact' not mentioned. Tricky.
