    can we write”dark trousers” for Q5?

    instead of “paragraph” can we write “sentence” in Q30?

      For Q5 you cannot write word trousers since it is already mentioned with the blank. Rest is fine.

    Hello ,
    Could you just let me the difference between these two types of instructions
    * Two words OR A number
    * Two words And OR A number
    Are these same or not ??

    • IELTS MASTER says:

      Generally you would find second type of instructions only. The first means you can write either 1 word or 2 words or a number as answer. In second instruction you can use a number with word as answer too.
