Hyphens IELTS Listening Test
Please help me to resolve this repeated problem.
1. I want to ask when I could use (-) in between words. In the answer sheet the answer was (brother-in-law) while I wrote it (brother in law). Will be counted as a correct answer?
2. The answer in the answer sheet was 'newtown', while I wrote it 'new town'. Is that wrong?
Hyphenated Words in the IELTS Listening
I have been practicing the listening tests from the official IELTS book (IELTS upgrade from IELTS academic).
Well in section 4 of Practice test 7 the instructions tell us to write:
NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS.
The answer for one of the blanks is 65% and in the answer key also they have given as 65%.
As you can see its a number. Will this be the correct answer? As in the instructions they didn't mention about writing numbers.
We can't write sixty five percent also as it will count as up to 3 words.
Another blank answer is 25 pounds. I don't understand how can this be the correct answer as in the instructions it clearly mentioned we can use only words not numbers.
I have my IELTS test in two days, please help me with this doubt.
Capitalisation and Hypens
by Camille Ablao
This is an inquiry with regards how you are going to write answers in the answer sheet.
When I do practice exams in listening, I sometimes capitalize the first letter of my answer (because the answer is found in the beginning of the sentence, and it is not a proper noun), but looking at the key answers, it was not capitalized.
Will I be marked wrong for it? Does it mean proper nouns are the only accepted case for capitalizing the first letter of the word, not because it is the first word in the sentence?
How about if i did not put a hyphen in between 2 words that needs one? will they mark it wrong?
hope you will help me with my confusion. I will be taking my exam in 5 days.
