This is a great exercise of gap fill for students preparing for their IELTS Reading test. This is not an IELTS test, it is a practice lesson to help you develop the skills needed for success in the IELTS reading test, namely: selecting key words to complete sentences by filling in the gaps. Always remember that sentences must be grammatically correct when they are complete.

**Passage: Logical Mathematical Intelligence**

Some individuals are able to learn just about anything using their logical skills. They are able to calculate and work out relationships and connections between items. They enjoy mental challenges seeking out solutions to logical, abstract and mathematical problems and have good deductive reasoning skills. They may simply excel at games involving strategy such as chess.

To exhibit strong Logical-Mathematical Intelligence, it is not necessary for you to be good at maths – the very act of selecting key points in a logical, systematic numbered sequence can be evidence of this intelligence. The very act of investigating and analysing allows you to go beneath the surface of what you may be learning so as not to simply take it at face value.

Notice: This passage is from inspiring-breakthrough.co.uk. You can find the whole article on this page: Multiple Intelligences

**Questions 1 – 3**

- Finding links between items is possible for certain people by utilising their …………..
- They enjoy mental challenges and are skillful at ……….. which require planning and foresight.
- People with this type of intelligence are often good at going beyond the obvious by …………. and …………….
