Questions 9-13
Read the notice about road works below. In boxes 9-13 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 notice

9 The road will be closed for two days and not re-opened until Monday.
10 The road will be open as far as Little Street.
11 Work on the road will continue each weekend for the next month.
12 Temporary traffic lights will operate at intersections with Main Street.

MAIN STREET, GATTON RE-DEVELOPMENT

ROAD WIDENING TO AFFECT WEEKEND TRAFFIC AND BUS
SERVICES TO THE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS


The next stage in the re-development of the roads in the town of Gatton will
mean that Main Street will be closed between Little and Denning Streets
from 6.00 am on Saturday, 12 August to 6.00 pm on Sunday, 13 August. The
intersections of these streets with Main Street will not be affected.

We expect that the work will be completed at this time without further
disruption to traffic.

Motorists should note that Main Street will be closed over the weekend
during the hours indicated.

No university bus services will operate through the area between Little and
Denning Streets. However, alternative services will operate on bus routes
566 and 45 between Gatton Road, the town centre and the university.

The Transport and Roads Department apologises for any inconvenience
caused while improvements are in progress.

For question 7, the answer should only be 'A'. Even assuming three courses are offered, it can't be considered a wide variety, and 'B' cannot be the answer.

11) Work on the road will continue each weekend for the next month. --- Why is this 'False'? It should be 'NG' because no month indication is provided

10) Is 'true' because "Main Street will be closed between Little and Denning Streets" -- Means from Little to Denning street; it's closed but from main street to little it's not.

For question no. 11, the answer is 'False' because in the reading passage it has been said that 'We expect that the work will be completed at this time without further disruption to traffic.'. That means they will finish the road on mentioned days, so the work on the road won't continue any further.

I think the answer to the question 13 is 'FALSE'. Why? According to the question, bus service is mentioned, but on the passage, alternative service which means not BUS but they will use only the BUS route. So I don't know why it is 'TRUE'.

For Question # 7, apparently, there is nothing in advertisement 'B' related to language choice. Also, for question # 8, I can not find anything in advertisement 'B' related to class timings. Can you kindly help me understand answers of question 7 and 8?
