IELTS General Reading True False Not Given Mock Test - Question 1

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

Roman Shipbuilding and Navigation

Today, the ships are built using computers and sophisticated tools as it is completely based on science. In ancient Rome, the ship was built by relying on both inherited techniques and personal experience. Generally, the Romans were land-based people who learned shipbuilding from the people that they conquered, namely the Egyptians and the Greeks. 

Some written documents only survived which give description and information about the Roman ships. Few clues about ancient shipbuilding techniques were found in excavated vessels.  It was found that ancient Roman shipbuilders first built the hull first, and then proceeded with the frame and the whole ship. To build the outer hull, planks have been used. 

They have been fixed using a  mortise and tenon method since the 6th century BC. Without stitching, one plank can be locked into another. Mediterranean shipbuilders used another shipbuilding method where they built the frame first and then the hull and the rest of the components of the ship.  This method was found to be both systematic and shortened ship construction time. Ancient Romans built huge merchant ships whose size and technicalities are phenomenal. 

Warships are constructed in a way so that they can be lightweight and speedy. It is built with a narrow and long hull and it can be sailed near the coast which relieves the excess load. Though it was destroyed in naval battles, it lies on the sea’s surface rather than sank down. To pierce the timber hulls, they used the battering ram. Warships utilized wind as well as human power.

IELTS General Reading True False Not Given Mock Test - Question 2

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

Spider Silk

Spider silk is not a single or unique material. Different species of spiders make many kinds of silk. Some possess nearly 7 distinct types of glands, each of which produces different silk.

Why are there so many types of silk? Each type of silk has a different role. All spiders make dragline silk that works as a lifeline, allowing the creatures to hang from ceilings. It serves as a constant connection to the web, to make quick escapes from attacks. Radial spokes of the web are formed by dragline silk. The first strand by which the web hangs from its support is made by the bridge line silk; yet another silk forms the great spiral.

Each type of silk has different and unique physical properties like strength and elasticity. Compared to other synthetic and natural materials, all the types of silk are very strong. Dragline silk has a high degree of  toughness and strength. A strand of dragline silk is many times stronger than steel, on a weight-for-weight basis, but a spider’s dragline is only about 1/10th the diameter of a human hair. The Spider-Man movie underestimates the strength of silk drastically. The real dragline silk would not need to be as thick as the web deployed by Spiderman in the movie.

Dragline silk is a composite substance that consists of 2 distinct proteins, each having 3 types of regions with distinct properties. One of these makes an amorphous (non-crystalline) matrix that can be stretched, giving the silk elasticity. When an insect falls on the web, the matrix stretches enabling  the web to absorb the kinetic energy of the insect’s flight. Two types of crystalline regions are embedded in the amorphous portions of both proteins that toughens the silk. Both types of crystalline regions are tightly pleated and resist stretching but one of them is rigid.The less rigid crystals' pleats are thought to not only fit into the rigid crystals' pleats, but also interact with the amorphous portions of the proteins, anchoring the rigid crystals to the matrix. The resulting composite is strong, tough, and yet elastic.

IELTS General Reading True False Not Given Mock Test - Question 3

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

Seaweeds of New Zealand

Seaweeds generally live in the ocean. Seaweeds are rich in nutritions which give necessary minerals to the body’s health. Various elements can be found in seaweed such as aluminium, barium, calcium, chlorine, copper, iodine and iron. These elements are produced by erosion. Eskimos get vitamin C to satisfy their bodily requirements by eating Seaweeds. 

Seaweed's nutritive value has been recognised for ages.  It was found that Japanese have a low incidence rate of goitre as they consume seaweeds. It is because the seaweeds contain high iodine content. Fresh fruits and nuts, fuschia, tutu berries , cape gooseberries are made by seaweeds which were found in the old Maorie eating customs. Settlers and Explorers brought seeds to Maori. 

New Zealand has about 700 species of seaweed which most of the countries aren't even aware of.  Of several species grown worldwide, New Zealand also has a particularly large share. After several species of seaweeds become popular worldwide, New Zealand has a huge share. It is found that New Zealand possesses 30 species of Gigartina which is a close relative of Irish Moss These are also called as New Zealand carrageenan. Agar, the gel forming substance derived from this species is benefitted for  commercial uses such as cough mixture, confectionery, the canning, cosmetics, paint and leather industries and toothpaste. New Zealand sent Gigartina to Australia during World War 2, to use it as a toothpaste. 

New Zealand has many commercially profitable red seaweeds, most of them are extracted from agar (Pterocladia, Gelidium, Chondrus, Gigartina). New Zealand imported ready-made agar from Japan and Northern Hemisphere Irish Moss from England. Gigartina is rarely found in  the east coast of North Island.  Still, the East coast has a moderate supply of two species of Pterocladia. Now, in health food shops, you can find New Zealand-made agar.
