Question : A full worker needs a doctors note if he is sick for 4 days in a row.

Answer and Explanation

Explanation & Paraphrasing:
Full worker – is this information given in the passage? Yes, it is because word “workers” refers to all types of workers.
Need = required
doctors note = medical certificate
in a row = continuous
for 4 days = this does not match. The passage says that someone needs to be sick for MORE THAN 4 days to need a doctors note.

The information in the statement is given in the passage but it does not match the passage because people do not need a sick note for being sick for 4 days – they need a sick note for more than 4 days.

Answer = FALSE

Well done to all students who got the answer right 🙂

    So for me it sounds FALSE

  27. True


    OMG, I mad a huge mistake answering TRUE, first I did not know the meaning of “in the row”, secondly I did not pay attention to one important detail ” more than”, anyway I can notice how much I need to improve.
