Coping with homonyms

Paper 1a

Homonyms are words which look alike but have different meanings. For example, a row (an argument or a line of things), a clock (a timepiece) and to clock (to hit someone). When a homonym is used, you need to use the context to work out the meaning of the word.

City sights

Paper 1a

This is a skimming exercise. Glance through the list of attractions in a large city, read the questions at the bottom, and then try to locate the information which will enable you to answer them.

Environmental protection

Paper 1a

Sometimes you will need to turn written information into graphic form, maybe a mind map, a flow chart or a bar-graph. Read the interview with a government officer and complete the flow chart as you do so.

Can you tell me the procedure followed in the case of an environmental nuisance?
