IELTS academic reading yes/no/not given mock test- Question 1

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

Caves

Caves are naturally occurring underground places that are accessible to humans. There are three main types, those formed in soluble rocks, usually limestone or marble, by underground water movement; those formed in rocks by the concentrated pounding of waves along joints and zones of crushed rock; and a few caves formed in lava flows, where the solidified outer crust is left after the molten core has drained away to form rough tunnels, such as those on the tiny basalt volcano; and those formed in lava flows, where the molten core has drained away to form rough tunnels.

Many sections of New Zealand have limestone of various ages, ranging from recent geological eras to more than 450 million years ago, however not all of it is cavernous. Many caverns have been discovered, but there are hundreds more to be discovered.

Sedimentary rocks (including limestone) are often laid down in almost horizontal layers or beds of varying thicknesses, with the most common thickness being 5-7.5 cm. These beds can build up to a total thickness of a hundred meters. Because pure limestone is brittle, earth movements generate cracks along the partings and joints that are at an angle to them. Rainwater percolates down to the water table through the soil and fissures in the underlying rocks, filling all cavities and pores below.

The acidic water dissolves the limestone at the joints, and once a route is opened, the abrasive action of sand and pebbles brought by streams expands it. The vast solution takes place between the water table's seasonal restrictions. Erosion may continue to erode the floor, or silt and stones may accumulate on the surface and disrupt stream paths. The stream that built most caverns can still be found.

Caves in the softer, well-bedded Oligocene limestones are often horizontal in growth, often with multiple levels and passages, and are often rather long. Gardner's Gut, Waitomo, is divided into two sections with over seven kilometers of tunnels between them. Long, narrow, straight tunnels following joint patterns, as in Ruakuri, Waitomo, or a series of parallel straights oriented in one or more directions, as in Te Anaroa, Rockville, are major aspects of cave plans.

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

Home smoke alarms

Smoke alarms are now a typical component in Australian homes, and the National Building Code requires them in all newly constructed properties. They are designed to detect the presence of smoke and emit a loud alarm in the case of a fire, giving you enough time to flee.

Smoke alarms are divided into two categories. Ionization smoke alarms are the most affordable and widely available smoke alarms. They're also incredibly sensitive to 'flaming fires,' which are fires that burn extremely hot and will detect them before the smoke becomes too thick. Photoelectric alarms, on the other hand, are better at detecting slow-burning fires. They are suitable for homes with only one level because they are less prone to go off accidentally. One of each should be installed for optimum protection.

Most battery-powered smoke alarms do not require expert installation and can be installed by the homeowner. However, you will need the services of a qualified professional to install hard-wired smoke alarms that are powered by the mains electricity supply. Smoke alarms work best when they're mounted on the ceiling, near or in the center of the room or hallway.

Any quantity of photoelectric smoke alarms may be disposed of in the household waste. You may dispose of ionization alarms in your household rubbish if you have fewer than ten. If you have more than ten to get rid of, contact your local government.

When the battery in your battery-powered smoke alarm runs out, it will emit a short beep every 60 seconds to inform you that it needs to be replaced. It should, however, be tested once a month to ensure that the battery and alarm sounder is in functioning order. It's important to keep in mind that the sensitivity of all smoke alarms will decrease with time.

Questions 1- 6

Do the following statements agree with the information given in the Reading Passage?

Write

YES if the statement agrees with the claims of the writer

NO, if the statement contradicts the claims of the writer

NOT GIVEN if it is impossible to say what the writer thinks about this

1. Smoke alarms are designed to detect the presence of smoke and emit a loud alarm in the case of a fire.

2. As soon as the alarm rings you should run away as you have a short time to escape.

3. Smoke alarms require specialist installation for the perfect functions.

4. Smoke alarms can be fixed anywhere in the house.

5. Any quantity of photoelectric smoke alarms may be disposed of in the household waste.

6. If you want to dispose of ionization alarms, you need to contact local governments.

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

Genetics and population movements

Archaeological and fossil data were once utilized to study the origins and dispersal of human populations. However, since the 1950s, a variety of methodologies have been developed that have put the study of these subjects on a more solid and objective foundation. The 'archaeology of the living body,' or the hints discovered in genetic material, is now providing the finest evidence on early population movements.

The usefulness of these new methodologies can be shown in recent studies on the question of when people originally arrived in the Americas. North-east Asia and Siberia have long been thought to have been the starting point for the first human colonists in the New World.' Was there one large wave of migration into the Americas via the Bering Strait, or several? And when did this event, or series of events, occur? New insights into genetics, such as the distribution of genetic markers among modern Native Americans, have emerged in recent years.

The variants (called Gm allotypes) of one particular protein - immunoglobulin G - present in the fluid fraction of human blood were the focus of an important investigation undertaken by biological anthropologist Robert Williams. Over generations, all proteins 'drift,' or develop variants, and individuals of an interbreeding human population will share a set of these variants. By comparing the Gm allotypes of two different populations (for example, two Indian tribes), one can determine their genetic 'distance,' which can then be calibrated to determine how long ago these populations interbred.

During a twenty-year span, Williams and his colleagues sampled the blood of approximately 5,000 American Indians in western North America. They discovered that their Gm allotypes could be separated into two groups, one of which related to Central and South American Indian genetic typing. Other experiments revealed that the Aleut3 and the Inuit (or Eskimo) formed the third group. It was determined from this data that three significant waves of migration crossed the Bering Strait. All Central and South American Indians are descended from the first Paleo-Indian wave, which occurred more than 15,000 years ago.

2. No evidence is found on early population movements.

3. Williams and his colleagues tested the blood of around 5,000 American Indians in western North America. 

4. All Central and South American Indians came from the first Paleo-Indian wave 15,000 years ago.

5. Majority of prehistoric Americans are linked to Northern Asian populations by a crown and root traits.

IELTS academic reading yes/no/not given mock test- Question 4

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

Seaweed - Human consumption

Algae that live in the sea or brackish water are known as seaweeds. Scientists refer to them as 'benthic marine algae,' which simply means 'sea-attached algae.' The three primary hues of seaweeds are red, green, and brown: dulse is a red seaweed, sea lettuce is a green alga, and wrack is a brown seaweed. Red and brown algae are virtually exclusively marine, but green algae can be found in both freshwater and on land. Many of these algae are very old organisms that, despite being grouped as "algae," are not closely related, including representatives from four of the five kingdoms of life. There are around 10,500 different types of seaweeds, with 6,500 of them being red algae.

The term "sea-vegetables" is now commonly used to describe marine algae utilized as food. Dulse, carrageen moss, and various kelps and wracks are the most common species utilized in Ireland at the moment. Dulse is a red alga that is consumed on both sides of the North Atlantic. It is also known as dillisk in some locations. It is regularly marketed in little packets in the west and north of Ireland and is generally only consumed after it has been dried. In Ireland, about 16 tonnes are consumed annually; the species is also consumed in Canada, Iceland, Norway, France, and Scotland. In 1994, Ireland collected about 53 tonnes of carrageen moss.

While dulse and carrageen moss are worthy sea vegetables with a long history of use and a modest but well-established market, other species hold great promise. Our kelp resources are thought to be underused. Although all kelp species are edible, Laminaria saccharina is the most pleasant because it has a slightly sweet flavor, owing to its high levels of mannitol, and it also has a superior appearance.

Himanthalia elongata, also known as thongweed in some regions, and Alaria esculenta, sometimes known as dabberlocks or murlins, are two other brown algae with promise as food that we are now investigating. Himanthalia is consumed after drying or pickling in France, and the plants are sold dried in Ireland. It makes a surprisingly good compliment to a mixed salad after soaking in water; it doesn't have the distinct seaweedy flavor that some people loathe. We're studying the growth and life cycle of populations of this species on the west coast with the help of basic research funding from Forbairt, the Irish research, and development organization. Plants are simple to gather, but they must be dried fast and packaged properly to retain their outstanding flavor and texture.
