Sunny Goyal
In part 1, only one word or number is used, so how can we write the answer to question number 4 "2 weeks"? Kindly resolve my issue and clear my doubt.
IELTS Mentor
The question instruction says "Write ONE WORD AND/ OR A NUMBER for each answer.", which means you have to answer using one word, but you can use a number in addition to that. This is why '2 weeks' is correct but 'two weeks' is not. Explanation: '2 weeks' = one word AND a number, but 'two weeks' = two words.

Kat said :
Does it matter if I write "two weeks" instead of "2 weeks"? I get confused by this because, in some answer keys, it spells the number but in some, it doesn't?
Anything you write 2 weeks or two weeks, it is 2 words but instruction says only word/number. Sometimes I have a doubt about answers suggested by this website.
It says one word "AND/OR" number. Hence '2 weeks' is correct as it has one word AND one number but 'two weeks' is wrong as it has 2 words.
