IELTS academic reading note completion mock test- Question 1

Answer Questions 1-6 which are based on the reading passage below.

Slavery

Slavery is defined as any system in which property law ideas are applied to humans, allowing people to own, purchase, and sell other people. A slave is unable to opt-out of such an arrangement unilaterally and works for no pay. However, in a wider sense, slavery can apply to any scenario in which a person is forced to work against their will. Scholars also use phrases like "forced labour" or "unfree work" to describe such situations.

Slavery has a long history that spans numerous cultures, nations, and religions, from ancient to present times. Slavery is unknown when it first appeared, but it is thought to have been uncommon among primitives because it usually emerges in situations of social inequality. As civilizations developed, organized cities and farms were grown and the slaves became necessary. The Mesopotamian Code of Hammurabi, which refers to it as an established institution, is the first indication of the practise. The custom expanded throughout the ancient world, including Greece and other regions of the globe.

Slavery can be traced back to early human civilizations in numerous cultures. From the moment of birth, capture, or purchase, a person can become enslaved. Slavery was once allowed in most communities, but it is currently prohibited in all recognised governments. In 1981, Mauritania became the final country to abolish slavery. Still, there are approximately 40.3 million individuals worldwide who are victims of contemporary slavery in some manner.

Western European countries were among the first to abolish slavery as a practise in their country but relied heavily on slaves to create their empires elsewhere. Despite the universal abolition of slavery, slaves continued to exist in the Americas. Slavery abolitionists were only able to put an end to the practise in places like the United States much later. The Southern states left the union and attempted to maintain slavery when Abraham Lincoln was elected president and called for its abolition.

IELTS academic reading note completion mock test - Question 2

Answer Questions 1-8 which are based on the reading passage below.

Smoking and its causes

One of the most common types of recreational drug usage is smoking. It is a behaviour that involves inhaling smoke from a burning substance. Nicotine, the active alkaloid in this drug, is absorbed into the blood. It has the potential to produce a variety of diseases and dysfunctions. Tobacco use is the most common type of smoking. It is practised by about one billion people worldwide, the bulk of whom live in underdeveloped countries. Cannabis and opium are two less common smoking substances. Some of the drugs are classed as hard narcotics, such as heroin, although their use is restricted due to their lack of commercial availability.

Smoking first appeared in religious rites as offerings to gods, cleaning rituals, or allowing shamans and priests to change their minds for religious purposes. The practise of smoking tobacco soon spread throughout the world after European exploration and conquest of the Americas.

Smoking is a significant risk factor for periodontitis and tooth loss. The effects of smoking on periodontal tissues are determined by the number of cigarettes smoked each day and the length of time the habit has been practised. Independent of age, sex, or plaque index, smokers and former smokers had 2.7 times and 2.3 times greater chances of developing periodontal disease than nonsmokers, according to a study. However, the effect of tobacco on periodontal tissues appears to be more severe in men than in women. According to studies, smokers have a higher chance of severe dental bone loss than nonsmokers, and persons who smoke and drink heavily have a considerably higher risk of having oral cancer than people who do neither.

Smoke inhalation provides inherent obstacles to many physiologic systems such as respiration, smoking has significant health consequences. When compared to non-smokers' typical death rates, diseases related to tobacco smoking have been proven to kill almost half of long-term smokers. According to 2007 research, nearly 4.9 million individuals die each year as a result of smoking. Many ailments, including lung cancer, heart attacks, erectile dysfunction, and birth problems, are linked to it. Because of the health risks of smoking, many governments have imposed high tariffs on tobacco products, run advertisements to discourage use, ban marketing that promotes the use, and provide assistance to smokers who want to quit.

IELTS academic reading note completion mock test - Question 3 

Answer Questions 1-7 which are based on the reading passage below.

The great wall of china

The Great Wall of China, one of the world's greatest wonders, was constructed between 220 and 206 BC. When it was first built, it served as separate barriers for several states, and it wasn't until the Qin Dynasty that it was renamed the "Great" wall. Emperor Qin Shihuang was successful in having the walls connected together to act as a fortress to protect the Chinese Empire's northern frontiers against invasion. After that, from the 5th century BC and the 16th century AD, it was renovated and maintained.

Before bricks were utilised, the Great Wall was largely composed of rammed earth, stones, and timber. During the Ming, however, bricks, as well as materials like tiles, lime, and stone, were heavily used in various places of the wall. The bricks' size and weight made them easier to deal with than dirt and stone, allowing construction to move more quickly. Bricks could also sustain more weight and last better than rammed dirt. Stone is more durable than brick, but it is also harder to deal with. 

As a result, rectangular-shaped stones were utilised for the wall's foundation, inner and outer brims, and entrances. Battlements line the majority of the wall, with defensive openings measuring 30 cm (12 in) in height and 23 cm (9.1 in) in width. From the parapets, you can look out over the surrounding countryside. From the parapets, guards could look out across the surrounding countryside.

The Great Wall of China is said to be the only man-made monument that can be viewed from the moon with the naked eye, according to legend. Richard Halliburton's Second Book of Marvels, published in 1938, is where the mythology began. This is, however, a myth. NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong and Yang Liwei both refuted Richard Halliburton's claim. A more reasonable hypothesis is that the Great Wall can be seen from a low earth's orbit, which is not unusual because many other man-made structures can be viewed from that altitude.

IELTS academic reading note completion mock test - Question 4

Answer Questions 1-7 which are based on the reading passage below.

Meditation

The term "meditation" refers to a technique in which a person employs mindfulness or focuses their mind on a certain object, thought, or action. Meditation seeks to train the attention and awareness of the mind, as well as to achieve a mentally clear, emotionally quiet, and stable condition.

Meditation has been practised in various religious traditions and beliefs since antiquity, frequently as part of the road to enlightenment and self-realization. It has expanded from its beginnings to other cultures, where it is regularly practised in private and corporate life, since the 19th century. The majority of meditation techniques don't necessitate any particular equipment or space. These techniques can be divided into two types in general. The voluntary focus of attention on a particular object, breathing, image, or words is referred to as focused meditation. Meditation involving open monitoring entails focusing on all mental events that reach the range of awareness.

Beginners should often begin with short periods of meditation that include four steps such as choosing a comfortable position, closing one's eyes, breathing normally, and focusing one's attention on the breath. The individual must be conscious of the body's reactions to each breath and expiration when meditating. That is, as you breathe, pay attention to the movement of your body, particularly your chest, abdomen, and shoulders.

Meditation is an ancient technique for teaching the mind and body to relax and quiet down. It is recognised to help with psychological equilibrium, sickness management, and overall health and well-being. Stress reduction, anxiety control, emotional health promotion, self-awareness enhancement, attention span lengthening, age-related memory loss reduction, kindness generation, addiction treatment, sleep improvement, pain control, and blood pressure reduction are some of the health benefits identified by specialists.
