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

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

Left or right-handed bathwater

Left or right-hand bathwater? This may seem like a silly question, but it was the topic of a deep scientific investigation by the Daily Mail in 1965. The probe indicates which side of the equator you rely on the direction of the water cycle in the plug-hole.

According to Homo sapiens, it is estimated that 5 to 30% of the population are left-handed and that the number of males is higher than that of females. In one experiment, 95% of embryos were found to be sucking the right thumb in the uterus. The general opinion is that left-handed conduct is specified by a dominant right cerebral hemisphere that controls the left side of the body.


Hereditary factors are excluded. Likewise, 262 soldiers must protect their hearts, there are 262 principles such as the desire to learn to use stone tools and instruments they designed by hand, as well as Plato's idea boiled down to any hand. The baby was in the cradle. However, the nearly universal human choice for dextrality or right-handedness stays a secret.

Prejudice against the left hand has been around since old times and is intertwined with the spiritual beliefs and superstitions that still exist in daily speech. Sinister, the Latin word for the left hand, means 'suggestion of evil' in English, while the French word for abusive is obscene or distorted. Left is derived from the Anglo-Saxon left. The unreasonable term Southpaw, by contrast, originated from the Chicago Baseball Stadium, where pitchers meet west, so the left-handed player's pitching arm is to the south.

Other harmful words include pen pushers, while left-handed praise is a disgrace. Describing the right hand as the oldest institution in the world, Thomas Carlyle introduced the political idea of the 'left' in his work on the French Revolution - the aristocracy in the 1789 Paris Legislature seated right against the extremists.

IELTS general reading yes/no/not given mock test - Question 2

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

Cutty Sark

The nineteenth century was a time of amazing technological growth in Britain, and significant transformations in shipping took place from air to steam energy and from wood to iron and steel. The quickest commercial sailing ships of all time were the Clippers, three-mast ships constructed to carry goods around the world, yet carried fewer passengers. From the 1840s to the 1869s, the Suez Canal opened and replaced the steam-powered sail, with clippers dominating world trade. Although numerous have been constructed, only one stays more or less the same. The Cutty Sark is currently on show in Greenwich, southeast London.

Cutty Sark's unique name comes from poetry by Tom O 'Schander written by the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Tom, a farmer, is chased by a witch named Nanny, who wears a 'Cutty Sark' - the old Scottish name for a short nightdress. The witch is described in the form of a Cutty Sark - usually, a woman carving on the front of an old sailing ship. In mythology and Burns' poetry, witches could not cross the water, so it was a different name for a ship.

Cutty Sark was constructed in 1869 in Dumbarton, Scotland for a shipping company possessed by John Willis. To bring out the construction, Willis picked a new shipbuilding company, Scott & Linden, and made sure that the difference between them kept him in a very robust position. Eventually, the company was expelled from the business and the ship was completed by a competitor.

Willis' company was involved in the tea trade between China and Britain, where quickness could bring returns and reputation to shipowners, so the Cutty Sark was created to sail faster than any other ship. On his first voyage, in 1870, he took a large number of goods from London to China. She returned with tea and returned to London in four months. Nevertheless, as a consequence of bad winds and different misfortunes, the Cutty Sark did not live up to its owner's high expectations. In one event, in 1872, a ship and a rival thermopile left a port in China on the same day. Crossing the Indian Ocean, Cutty Sark took the lead over 400 miles, but then his rudder was severely damaged in the seas, thus unable to guide her. The crew had the difficult task of fixing the rudder at sea and were only successful on the second try. Cutty Sark arrived in London a week after the thermopile.
