IELTS Task 1 Verb Quiz: Processes & Passive Voice

In this IELTS task 1 verb quiz you will be tested on your knowledge of verb forms in processes/diagrams. Process or diagram descriptions occasionally arise in the test, though they are less common than other types of graph.

You need to place the correct verb into the gap. Remember that with diagrams and processes you will sometimes need to use the passive voice.

The statements from the quiz refer to this man-made process:
