READING
&__)"('+_!!_'_ ______+,___-____._/___-_______________-_ Questions 1-8
Questions 9-15
Suggested approach
• Read the task rubric carefully. In this task you
have to decide which match is being described
in each question.
• Decide what information is best to skim for in
the passage: the type of match or the
description. In this question it is best to skim
for the types of match as these are names, some
of which are in italics, they are easier for you to
pick out.
• Skim through the text until you find match A,
the Ethereal Match.
• Read that section of the text and underline any
important features of this match.
• Read through the descriptions and write A next
to any that fit this type of match.
If you think there is more than one possible
description for the match, note A next to both.
(The rubric states that you may use any match
more than once. )
• Towards the top of the second page of the text
it states that the Ethereal Match consisted of a
“sealed glass tube”, so A is the answer to
question 14. Note that the description is
expressed differently from the text. Sometimes
you have to match the meaning rather than the
words.
• If you think none of the descriptions fits this
type of match, go on to the next the rubric also
states that there are not enough descriptions to
fit all the matches.

Suggested approach
• Read the task rubric carefully. Only three of the
factors in the list are correct. The correct
factors explain why the author doubts the value
of the WZCS document.
• Scan the text and mark the section that
discusses the accuracy/value of theWZCS

onwards.
