IELTS general reading yes/no/not given practice question 1

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

Psychosocial Value of Space

What would a building look like if it was built to encourage psychological and social well-being? What impact would it have on our mind, emotions, and senses? What kind of impact would it have on people's habits? Zoos, rather than buildings, are a good place to look for clues. In the last several years, zoo design has seen significant development. Natural ecosystems and animal clustering have taken the place of cages. The animals roam freely in some areas, but people are confined to vehicles or trains that go through the ecosystem. Animals are now housed in mixed-species exhibits that are more akin to their natural surroundings. Animals have much more control over their behaviour in the lab than they do in nature. They can be watched in the lab. They play and eat and live just like normal animals. 

What influenced this transformation in philosophy and design? Concern for animals' psychological and social well-being was a major aspect. Zoos might keep animals alive, but not thrive. Pacing, repetitive gestures, aggressiveness, and withdrawal are all commonly known neurotic symptoms in caged animals. Another example: the Central Park Zoo engaged an animal psychologist to research a polar bear who spent the day swimming in an infinite figure of eight in its little pool. The zoo was concerned because this wasn't typical polar bear behaviour. The animal psychologist gave a diagnosis after several days of observation. The bear was dissatisfied. To make up for the tragic circumstance, the zoo added facilities and toys to the bear's habitat to encourage exploration and play.

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

Collecting as a hobby

A deltiologist collects postcards, while an archtophilist collects teddy bears. Hundreds, if not thousands, of postcards, chocolate wrappers, or whatever you want to call it, requires time, energy, and money that may be put to better use. Nonetheless, there are millions of collectors worldwide. What motivates them to do it in the first place?

People who collect for the purpose of making money are known as instrumental collectors; that is, collectors who gather to achieve a goal. They'll seek for antiques, for example, that they can get for a low price and then sell for a profit. However, there may be a psychological component as well: buying cheap and selling for a high price might provide a sense of accomplishment for the collector. And, because selling on the internet is so simple, an increasing number of people are getting involved.

Many collectors attend meetings of a group of collectors and exchange information on things in order to improve their social lives. This is comparable to joining a bridge club or a gym in that it puts them in touch with people who share their interests. Another reason people collect is to find something unique, such as a rare early recording by a particular performer.
