IELTS academic reading table completion mock test-Question 1 

Answer questions 1-5 which are based on the reading passage below.

Motivational factors and the hospitality industry

A necessary element in the victory of hotels is expanding and maintaining excellent performance from their workers. Some hotels strive to deliver outstanding working circumstances for their workers. The concept was created in workplaces, usually in the non-service sector, that highlighted fun and entertainment as part of work-life balance. Indifference, the service sector, and more particularly hotels, has traditionally not developed these approaches to handling basic worker requirements, like fair working circumstances.

Pfeffer (1994) emphasizes that to achieve in global business circumstances, organizations must make an investment in Human Resource Management (HRM) to permit them to acquire workers who have better talents and abilities than their competitors. This investment will be to their competitive benefit. Despite this honor of the significance of worker growth, the hospitality enterprise has historically been dominated by underdeveloped HR procedures (Lucas, 2002).

Lucas also points out that ‘the importance of HRM procedures does not seem to be planned to promote constructive relations with workers or to portray a managerial process that allows evolving and sketching out the full potential of individuals, even workers may be greatly comfortable with many characteristics of their work’ (Lucas, 2002). Also, or maybe, as an outcome, increased employee turnover has been a regular issue throughout the hospitality enterprise. Among the numerous cited causes are low compensation, insufficient advantages, low-grade working conditions, and compromised worker morale and attitudes (Maroudas et al., 2008).

Ng and Sorensen (2008) showed that when managers deliver credit to workers, encourage employees to work together, and clear barriers controlling effective performance, workers feel more obligated to remain with the firm. This was concisely summarized by Michel. Providing help to workers gives them the confidence to perform their jobs better and the motivation to remain with the organization.’ Hospitality organizations can, therefore, improve worker motivation and retention through the growth and progress of their working conditions. These conditions are naturally connected to the working circumstances.

IELTS academic reading table completion mock test-Question 2

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

Pollination

Plants have developed various methods to reproduce themselves. In asexual reproduction, plants splits off its new roots or bulbs (e.g., lilies, garlic) or even stems, branches and leaves (e.g., spider plants, mangroves). Plants which does asexual reproduction is essentially cloning themselves. It is a simple and direct way to reproduce with less energy but production of maximum plants compared to sexual reproduction. However, Most of the plants reproduce sexually. In terms of evolution, sexual reproduction will be results more genetic variety and better dispersal than asexual reproduction. Normally, the pollen (male) grains in flowering plants are transferred from the anther to the stigma and the pollen fertilises the ovaries (female), which produces seeds. 

Plants such as beans, peas and tomatoes pollinate themselves, but generally, pollination happens between separate plants. The pollen can either fall into the ovary of another plant by wind or by pollinators which are animal species. Majorly, pollinators are insects, birds or even bats that play a key role in pollination.

Plants use various methods to attract pollinators to do their work. Most of the plants produce nectar, a sugary substance which pollinators use as a food. One of the popular examples is honeybee. It collects nectar and also pollen for food. If a bee enters a flower, its body brushes against the anther, as a result, pollen grains are picked up by the surface of its body. After, when a bee enters a second flower and brushes against the stigma, some of the pollen grains falls into the ovaries of the second plant, fertilisation happens and seeds will be produced. Those seeds contain genetic material from both the male gamete of the first plant and female reproductive organs of the second plant. Lots of bees, moths and butterflies and also some species of birds and bats are attracted to nectar-producing flowers. 

Butterflies are attracted to flowers which are open during the day and have bright colours - yellow, red or orange. On the contrary, moths are active at night and attracted to flowers which are pale or white. Even Hummingbirds are also attracted by colour, especially by bright red. Bees aren't able to see red, but blue, yellow or other bright colours. It is also attracted to flowers with mint-like or sweet smell. Snapdragons normally attract bees visually. Also, it adapts to appeal to certain bee species. Bats are attracted to flowers which have the following qualities: nectar-rich, fruity aroma and highly fragrant blooms with musty.

IELTS academic reading table completion mock test-Question 3 

Answer questions 1-5 which are based on the reading passage below.

Thomas Young

Thomas Young (1773-1829) provided 63 articles to the Britannica Encyclopedia, containing 46 biographical articles (mostly on scientists and classicists) and essays on “Bridge,” “Chromatics,” “Egypt,” “Languages” and “Tides”. Was someone who could write on so many subjects a polymath, a genius or a dilettante? In a new biography, released in 2006, Andrew Robinson argues that Young is a good competitor for the epitaph “the last man who knew everything.” Young has competitor, however: The phrase, which Robinson takes for his title, also serves as the subtitle of 2 other latest biographies: Leonard Warren’s 1998 life of paleontologist Joseph Leidy (1823-1891) and Paula Findlen’s 2004 book on Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680), another polymath. Young married Eliza Maxwell, in 1804 but they had no children.

Young, of course, did not just write encyclopedia entries. He submitted his first paper to the Royal Society of London at the age of 20 and was elected a Fellow a week after his 21st birthday. In the paper, Young explained the process of accommodation in the human eye —on how the eye focuses properly on objects at varying distances. Young presumed that this was fulfilled by changes in the shape of the lens. Young also theorised that light travelled in waves and he believed that, to account for the ability to see in colour, there should be 3 receptors in the eye matching to the 3 “principal colours” to which the retina could respond: red, green, violet. All these hypotheses were subsequently proved to be correct. Young suffered asthma and died in London in 1829.
