After reading all ur doubts, now I'am doubtful.
Clarify if it is "not more than two/not more than three" means can our answer be two and three, or else only one and two words?
One word and/or a number???

But the answer require to be only one word and/or a number??? How could it be possible ?

Please explain these confusing instructions for IELTS Listening
by Yugvir Singh
Recently I took a listening practice test, In which the condition was "Use no more than two words OR/AND a Number"....
The answer which I gave was 92.4%, but in the book`s answer sheet the answer was 92.4 percent ....
In another book, i saw the same scenario "Use no more than two words OR/AND a Number". Their answer was 92.4% .......
Now I am totally confused and lost.
Please help me out. Which one is correct? A combination of number & symbol counts as one number? Or one number & one word?
Or they don't even include symbols in the count? Because in one Question the condition was "Use no more than three words OR/AND a Number", and the correct answer was "2-3 weeks".....
Another case is 2/3, is it one word or number?
Please help me. thanks in advance.
If instructions are not more than two words or number and I wrote complete date of birth including year like 01.10.1986 then is my answer correct?
IELTS Listening: Comparative words (more/much more) in answer
Hello, I have a problem in Section 3 of Listening Part of Test 4, Cambridge IELTS 9. Here a part of the dialogue between two persons (Kira and Paul) is attached in image form. At one point of time during the conversation (the very last underlined sentence), Kira says she feels "much more confident" when asked by Paul how she feels after passing an academic year at her university.
Now in question 29 it is asked-"Having completed the year, how does Kira feel?" and in answer key it is written "confident". Since the question has a limitation of NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER, would it be right to write MUCH CONFIDENT or MUCH MORE CONFIDENT as answer?
Thanks in advanced.
In my IELTS test it was given in question to write only one word. The answer of the one question was 12 July.
Want to know does it count as a one word or there is some other way of writing it.
Hi! I have been studying, my exam will be held in two days, and I still have this doubt:
When there is a word limit ("no more than 2 words"), will the conjunction "and" be counted?
For example "coal AND fuel", or we have to use comma instead.. I would appreciate any help,
Number of words
In IELTS practice allowed words was 2. I wrote 'supermarket' but the correct answer was 'local supermarket'.
Question is how could I know where I should write 1 or words because 1 word answer is also correct.
Three words OR a number
I would like to ask if it is correct to write an answer "over 45", when the instruction says "NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS OR A NUMBER".
I read many forums about IELTS, but did not really get the direct answer.
I understand I can write "over 45" in case when it says "NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS OR/AND NUMBER".
But it my mentioned situation, I would understand it as "write 3 words, or u can write one number but no words".
Thank you in advance!
