Let's start with Q1, which asks for your understanding of "Expanding the spectrum of your potential".
The skill you can start with is paraphrasing: 'widening', 'stretching', 'maximising' are synonyms of 'expanding', 'range' is a close synonym of 'spectrum', and 'capability' or 'capacity' are synonyms for 'potential'. A possible answer can then be: "It is telling the reader that one can stretch their range of capabilities by attending the workshop."
The given answer of 'abilities' is not accurate at all. To have the ability for something is to have the skills to do it. However, to have the potential for something does not mean that you have the skills for it; it means that you have a knack for it or you have a natural tendency to excel in it, once you have been given the proper training.
This is an error that arises from careless reading. The given answer states that (i) It would teach participant memory techniques/ learn memorizing techniques in an interesting and less laborious way.
However, based on the visual text, the advertisement only said that the memorizing techniques taught would be fun to use. There was no comment on the delivery of the lessons themselves. Do correct the answer to: "(i) It would teach participants memory techniques that are interesting and less laborious."
It is not acceptable to just say 'March Holidays'. Always ensure that your answer is sensical and fair to the clueless examiner. You have to state that the holidays allows the students to attend the course.
A common error is to put "breathe stertorously", whereas the question does not ask for the word 'breathe'. Be very specific in your answer.
It is sufficient to just state that Leslie had a bleeding ear infection, Margo had acne spots and their mother had a bad cold and rheumatism. There is no need to state/ describe the consequence of having the condition.
'And your family looks like a series of illustrations from a medical encyclopedia'. Is this appropriate? Explain?
The word 'illustration' gives the idea of visual effects and, in this particular context, severity, whereas the word 'encylopedia' suggests a large variety.
Therefore, your answer has to appeal to the keywords here.
IF YES, you have to state that the small family had a variety of medical conditions, and their conditions appeared aggravated and typical of those found in encyclopedia.
IF NO, you have to state that the use of 'encyclopedia' was an exaggeration, and that the encyclopedia has far more medical conditions than the family had, and that the range of severity of conditions found in encyclopedia is far wider than those experienced by the family.
The given answer is not accurate as the question asks specifically for feelings. The mother was, in fact, nonchalant/ indifferent to his suggestion, but her careless response could have the unintended consequence of empowering her son to lead the family in leaving the country. Therefore, she changed her approach and instead sacrificed that one son by asking him to leave first, allowing her and the others to remain.
Acceptable evidence for Q12 includes: "unguardedly".
Vague answers like "She was not in favor"/ "She did not think it was a good idea"/ "She could not be bothered" are not acceptable. These are not feelings. Note that all feelings are adjectives, and the word 'bother' is a verb, so it is not accepted.
