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.
13. There will be bus services to the university throughout the weekend.



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.

Where are questions 16 to 19?
In Q-17, it is essential to reserve a computer three days in advance if you want to use one. While in the passage it is mentioned "maybe" (Bookings may be made up to three days in advance), so it is not essential to make an advance booking if you want to use.
Hi, the passage says "Please note that staff are not available to train people or give a lot of detailed instruction on how to use the programs". They are talking about programs whereas question is for computer only. There is no information given about computers, so the answer is NOT GIVEN.

For question # 16, the answer should be 'NG', because in the passage it says "normal office hours." Normal office hours= Monday to Friday.
Patricia Joseph
It is mentioned on the passage that on normal office hours. But it is not specified if weekend or weekdays. So it is 'Not Given'.

They have mentioned that you need to bring your own floppy if you want to store data. This gives sufficient information why the answer is 'false'.
It's 2 printers because it says that it is attached in each terminal... Terminal is 2 computers...
"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?

However, you will need to bring your own floppy disk. Hence the answer is F
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.

Up to three days (may be 1, 2, 3) not equal to three days.
