Passage Reading and English Comprehension

1079. The rise and fall in the annual gross income of Britain's biggest supermarkets is well documented. For this reason it came as not surprise to many when Tesco's annual figures represented a loss in this quarter. Official figures suggest that a price-cutting campaign by Britain's biggest tetailer failed to plug the losses, as Texco made its fourth quarterly loss in a row.

Commentators suggest that the fall in sales is a result of the current economic climate, with shoppers' not only spending less on clothing and electronic items, but also on their weekly food shops. However, this view is controversial as smaller competitor;s such as Sainsbury's and Morrison's continue to make a profit.

Complete the following sentence. Competitor's such as Sainsbury's and Morrison's ...

(a) Continually pose a threat to Tesco
(b) continually made a loss in the last four quarters
(c) Continue to make a profit, despite the economic downturn
(d) Continue to make a profit on clothing and electronic items

1080. UK unemployment has reached a new high after the public sector made a new wave of cuts this week. Statistics suggest that those particularly hit by the cuts will be youths, as a record high of over 1 million youths were recorded as unemployed at the beginning of this month. This figure is just under the half of the total national statistic for unemployment, a rreported 2.5 million.

Yet, the number of people claiming unemployment benefits has not risen as far as it was expected to. Economists predicted that the number of people claiming support would rise by an estimated 15,000, yet the actual figure demonstrates a rise of less than 4,000. Perhaps things are not as bad as they seem after all.

what does the writer mean when he states 'perhaps things are not as bad as they seem ...'?

(a) Unemployment is about to fall, improving the economic outlook
(b) The government is likely to make new public sector cuts
(c) Economists are mistaken and unemployment is lower
(d) Economists overestimated the number rise in benefits claims

1081. The Law Commission has recommended, as part of a major overhaul to inheritance law, that unmarried couples should have equal inheritance rights. The proposal suggests that unmarried couples who live together for five years or more should be able to inherit from each other without writing a will. This provision would also apply to couples who had lived together for two years or more and who had a child, providing that the child lived with the couple at the time one parent died.

An exception to the proposed law would be where one partner had been previously married to another partner and had not divorced them. In this situation, the surviving co-habitant would have no right to the deceased's estate. If passed, this British law is thought to affect roughly 7 million families who cohabit but never married.

Which one of the following statements can we not know based on the information provided in the passage>

(a) 7 million families in Britain are cohabiting but never married
(b) Recommendations to change inheritance laws have been made
(c) Children without married parents are not entitled to inherit their parent's estate
(d) Cohabiting with a partner still married to someone else would be an exception

1082. Official statisticsfrom countries around the European Union suggest that Britain has the second-highest standard within the EU. Research suggests that a major reason for this the service provided by the NHS. The European research body, 'Eurostat', compared the figures for Britain with the services supplied by the NHS and without such services.

It found that without the aid of the NHS, Britain moved down to the 10th in the scale for its standard of living. In the recent report Bulgaris was found to be the worst-off country in the EU, with Norway and Sweeden as the richest. Denmark was found to be the most expensive to live in within the EU.

These figures represent a dramatic change since the last survey carried out in 2007. At the time of the 2007 survey, Ireland was found to be one of the richest countries with its standard of living 48% above the average, beating even Sweeden. However, this is no longer the case.

Which one of the following statements is correct?

(a) 'Eurostat' is backed by the European Commission
(b) Denmark is one of the richest countries in the EU
(c) The richest countries are Sweeden and Norway
(d) The richest countries are Denmark and Norway

1083. To what extent does advertising a product at a sporting event increase sales? In light of the London Olympics, the relationship between events and advertising is under greater scruitny by British companies than ever befor. Research suggests that in the year prior to the Games, twelve percent of adults talked about the Olympics on a typical day.
