General Training Reading Sample 34

Questions 14-20
Read the passage about personal computers below and look at the statements below (Questions 14-20).

In boxes 14-20 on your answer sheet write

TRUE if the statement is true
FALSE if the statement is false
NOT GIVEN if the information is not given in the passage

14  There are two computers and two printers available for public use at the library.
15  You can buy floppy disks at the information desk.
16  The information desk is closed at weekends.
17  It is essential to reserve a computer three days in advance if you want to use one.
18  If you are more than a quarter of an hour late, you could lose your reservation for the computer.
19  Library employees do not have detailed knowledge of computers.
20  The library runs courses for people who want to learn about computers.

PERSONAL COMPUTERS AVAILABLE FOR PUBLIC TO USE

• 2 personal computers are available, for a fee of $5.00. There is also an ink jet printer attached to each terminal. The library has a number of commercially available programs for word processing and spreadsheets.

• A4 paper can be bought from the desk if you wish to print your work. Alternatively you can bring your own paper. If you wish to store information however, you will need to bring your own floppy disk.

Bookings
Because of high demand, a maximum of one hour's use per person per day is permitted. Bookings may be made up to three days in advance. Bookings may be made in person at the information desk or by phoning 8673 8901 during normal office hours. If for some reason you cannot keep your appointment, please telephone. If the library is not notified and you are 15 minutes late, your time can be given to someone else. Please sign in the visitors' book at the information desk when you first arrive to use the computer.

Please note that staff are not available to train people or give a lot of detailed instruction on how to use the programs. Prior knowledge is, therefore, necessary. However, tutorial groups are available for some of the programs and classes are offered on a regular basis. Please see the loans desk for more information about our computer courses.

"Bookings may be made in person at the information desk or by phoning 8673 8901 during normal office hours". It clearly states that in a weekend the information desk would remain closed. So why the answer is NG?
Can somebody suggest?

Question no 14 is also false as it has mentioned that there are 2 computers and only an ink jet printer attached to each terminal {that's only one printer attached}

Why is question no 18 is true? In text it is mentioned that 'if you don't notify your reservation, it will be cancelled' whereas in question there is no mention about notifying. Then how come this statement is true?

17. False. Because in three days and up to 3 days both have quite different meaning. Like up to 3 means it should not be less than 3 days and 3 days means strictly 3 days. 2days and 1day in advance can't be considered in *3 days* statement
Good luck!!

"Bookings may be made up to three days in advance." I think it means reserve may take maximum 3 days in advance, you can book one day or two days before but not 4 days or more.

15. False. Because you can bring your own- does not mean you can buy from information desk. Both statements are slightly different
Good luck!!

I am wondering the differences between False and Not Given. In my opinion, if one statement was correct, it is imperative that the opposite one must be false. Two statements would contradicting against each other. For example, "I can't buy the book over there" is true, then "I can buy the book over there" must be false. On the other hand, "I can buy the book here" is Not Given, since the statement is not contradictory to "I can't buy the book over there." I can bring my own floppy disk doesn't mean or imply I can't buy it there.

The sentence "You will need to bring your own floppy disk" only mentioned no "public" storage device will be provided by the library. It does not mean that their information desk does not sell floppy disk. Once you purchase a floppy disk from information desk (if they provide), you can bring this "own" floppy disk to store information. Thus, the answer should be NOT GIVEN.
