General Training Reading Sample: Your Moulex Iron & Classic Tours

First, read the text below and answer Questions 1-8.

Your Moulex Iron

GT Reading Passage 1 - Your Moulex Iron (Image 1)

Filling the reservoir
Your iron is designed to function using tap water. However, it will last longer if you use distilled water.

-- Always unplug the iron before filling the reservoir.
-- Always empty the reservoir after use.

Temperature and steam control
Your Moulex iron has two buttons which control the intensity of heat produced by the iron. You can, therefore, adjust the temperature of the iron and the amount of steam being given off depending upon the type of fabric being ironed.

-- Turn the steam control to the desired intensity.
-- Turn the thermostat control to the desired temperature.

Important: If your iron produces droplets of water instead of giving off steam, your temperature control is set too low.

C  Spray button
This button activates a jet of cold water which allows you to iron out any unintentional creases. Press the button for one second.

Pressing button
This button activates a super shot of steam which momentarily gives you an additional 40g of steam when needed.

Important: Do not use this more than five successive times.

E  Suits etc.
It is possible to use this iron in a vertical position so that you can remove creases from clothes on coathangers or from curtains. Turning the thermostat control and the steam button to maximum, hold the iron in a vertical position close to the fabric but without touching it. Hold down the pressing button for a maximum of one second. The steam produced is not always visible but is still able to remove creases.

Important: Hold the iron at a sufficient distance from silk and wool to avoid all risks of scorching. Do not attempt to remove creases from an item of clothing that is being worn, always use a coathanger.

F  Auto-clean
In order that your iron does not become furred up, Moulex has integrated an auto-clean system and we advise you to use it very regularly (1-2 times per month).

-- Turn the steam control to the off position.
-- Fill the reservoir and turn the thermostat control to maximum.
-- As soon as the indicator light goes out, unplug the iron and, holding it over the sink, turn the steam control to auto-clean. Any calcium deposits will be washed out by the steam. Continue the procedure until the reservoir is empty.

Read the information below and answer Questions 9-14.


We ask you to keep luggage down to one medium-sized suitcase per person, but a small holdall can also be taken on board the coach.

Seat Allocation
Requests for particular seats can be made on most coach breaks when booking, but since allocations are made on a first come first served basis, early booking is advisable. When bookings are made with us you will be offered the best seats that are available on the coach at that time.

Travel Documents
When you have paid your deposit we will send to you all the necessary documents and labels, so that you receive them in good time before the coach break departure date. Certain documents, for example, air or boat tickets, may have to be retained and your driver or courier will then issue them to you at the relevant point.

Special Diets
If you require a special diet you must inform us at the time of booking with a copy of the diet. This will be notified to the hotel or hotels on your coach break, but on certain coach breaks the hotels used are tourist class and whilst offering value for money within the price range, they may not have the full facilities to cope with special diets. Any extra costs incurred must be paid to the hotel by yourself before departure from the hotel.

Many of our coach-breaks now include, within the price, accommodation with private facilities, and this will be indicated on the coach break page. Other coach breaks have a limited number of rooms with private facilities which, subject to availability, can be reserved and guaranteed at the time of booking - the supplementary charge shown in the price panel will be added to your account.
    On any coach break, there are only a limited number of single rooms. When a single room is available it may be subject to a supplementary charge and this will be shown on the brochure page.

Some of our hotels arrange additional entertainment which could include music, dancing, film shows, etc. The nature and frequency of the entertainment presented is at the discretion of the hotel and therefore not guaranteed and could be withdrawn if there is a lack of demand or insufficient numbers in the hotel.

Can you please provide an explanation for the answer to question #2? Thank you in advance.
"A" is correct - Always empty the reservoir after use.
"F" option will be incorrect as - As soon as the indicator light goes out - (we can not see that), unplug the iron and, holding it over the sink (Correct), turn the steam control to auto-clean (No steam). Any calcium deposits will be washed out by the steam (where is the steam :) Continue the procedure until the reservoir is empty. I did opt for "F" but later when I rechecked that looked wrong.

I had F for my answer to question # 2. Please clarify more. Thank you in advance.

6. the (type of) fabric.
I just wrote "type of fabric", it is right? If I write "the type of fabric", it will be four words.


Siddhesh Phatherfod
Passage 1: 10/14.
Why is the answer to question 12 is "Bathroom"? Nowhere the word "bathroom" is mentioned, and bathroom is a basic need and cannot be charged additional cost. At least the answer could be private bathroom as a private room is mentioned.
Don’t imagine the answers in your head. Remember to answer according to the passage. The private facility was mentioned and the bathroom is a private facility. I hope this helps.
Just want to add, 'Bathroom' could be a public facility as well.
Gaddam Sanghasvi Giri
Can we download these papers?
I think it is not possible, I have tried but I couldn't find a way :(
It is an amazing website.
Why are there only 14 questions? The test ideally comprises of 40 questions to be answered in 60 mins right? Where are the rest? I have come across the same situation on other sites, but on YouTube, I see 40 questions in their simulation tests. Can someone enlighten me?
Click links below GT Reading Mock Test 1: for further questions.

Reading Part 2 | Reading Part 3 |

14 questions for section 1. Overall 40 questions for the reading module.
For those wondering why the answer to Question 2 is A and not F:

It is stated in A to "Always empty the reservoir after use." In F, the auto-clean clearly states that the calcium deposits are washed out by the steam. The image in 2 is not of steam, but of the reservoir being emptied (steam exits from the bottom of the iron). Therefore, the correct answer is A.

Can anyone tell me about answer 12?
Karan Kumar
See the line that mentions a private facility, it means the bathroom facility.
Donna S Fernandes
I cannot see again why question 2 is 'A', it looks more like 'F'.
I do agree with you, Donna.
Sunil Singh
I do agree with you Donna. The answer should be 'F' because they have mentioned sink also and the picture shows the same.
You are looking at question 3; got me confused too.
Bhallal Dev
Always empty the reservoir after use.
Prachi Chawla
I am trying to download these sample papers for printing so that I can practice. How do I do it?
Csaba Toth
I can't see why number 2 is A? the picture clearly not shows to fill up the reservoir, but instead of that doing the cleaning process.
"Bathroom" is not shown in the text.
Private facilities refer to the bathroom.
Mohinder Singh
Private facilities.
For question #2, is it very possible to fill something when the opening is facing down? The answer is 'F', emptying it not filling...
Check again. You have made some blunder.
