Below is an example of a multiple choice question. This is one of the more recognisable question types – multiple choice questions are used in many learning and testing situations, not just IELTS. However, in the IELTS test, there are TWO types of multiple choice question – in one, you will need to find the best ‘ending’ to complete a statement (see the example below), and in the other type you are looking for an answer to a question. The skills you use vary depending on which type of multiple choice question you are faced with – the lesson on multiple choice questions in the reading test covers the best approach for both types.
NOTE: This is an example only – there is no reading text.
Choose the correct letter, A, B, C or D.
Write your answer in box 18 on your answer sheet.

A. may be before other sections of the test.
B. will require you to talk about your home town.
