T, F NG Confusion
If a statement in the passage says:
"You need to be fully knowledgeable about the latest forensic sciences and technologies used to track criminals,"
And if the corresponding question for 'True, False, Not given' is
"You need to have some knowledge of technology while looking for culprits",
Would the answer be True, False or Not given?
Kindly guide me as according to me answer should be false, because some knowledge and full knowledge are different aspects.
The answer given is True in the IDP book which according to me is incorrect.
Confusion over some true false not given questions
Question regarding READING part.
In text: The management reserves the right to refuse admittance.
Question (True/False/Not Given): The owners of the campsite may not allow you to camp there.
My Answer: Not Given (or False). The owners may be in the management, but that's a different thing. The management has the right to refuse camping. So either it is not given (no word about the owners) or false (management!=owners). But the answer is...
Answer from book: True
In text (heading): YOU CAN TAKE UP THIS OPPORTUNITY IF YOU ARE:
- a full-time student at an Australian university or TAFE college
- presently enrolled, or finishing this year, or you have deferred a year of study
- over 18 years old by November in the academic year in which you apply to InterExchange
- enthusiastic about the experience of a lifetime...
Question (True/False/Not Given): There is an upper age limit for applicants.
My Answer: False. It is stated clearly: YOU CAN TAKE UP THIS OPPORTUNITY IF YOU ARE... and there is >18years old limit.
Answer from book: Not Given.
So, what's the reasoning behind the reading tests? The upper case tells you look for synonyms, don't treat everything strictly. The lower says otherwise...
Confusing T/F/NG IELTS Question
I'm confused with this T/F/N test from barron's IELTS practice exams book.
Visiting the Farm
Visitors are free to tour the farm on their own. Maps are available at the information desk in the Main Building. Guided tours are included in the cost of admission. Tours leave from the Main Building front entrance at 10:30 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. daily.
Q) Visitors must pay to visit the farm.
Ans) True. "Guided tours are included in the cost of admission."
Can someone explain why?
I think the correct answer is false.

Confusion Over False and Not Given Reading Questions
by Fledgling chicken
I am Wondering if anyone has the same feeling that the IELTS reading task can be illogical.
"In the process of obtaining water from distant locales, cities often transformed them, making deserts where there had been fertile agricultural areas."
Decide whether the below sentence is True, False or Not Given:
"In the nineteenth century, water was brought into the desert to create productive farming land."
The correct answer is "False" but my answer is "Not Given".
People turn fertilized land into desert is not sufficient enough to rule out the possibility of the other way round. Right?
Just like, I kill people, does not mean that I can't save people's life.
