blank for any question. If you don't know the correct answer you should
always make a guess.

read, they will be marked wrong!

Part two of the Use of English paper (Open Cloze) mainly tests
grammar words, like the ones in the previous exercise. Many students think that
this is one of the most difficult parts in the exam. Don’t worry if your score
is not very high. This part represents about 3% of the total mark. However, it’s
important to get as many marks as possible from this section.
Read the following text without thinking
about the missing words.
• Now read the text again more slowly and write
one word in each space.
• Look before and
after each gap.
• Think about grammar words; pronouns, auxiliary verbs, prepositions etc.
• If the gap is difficult, and you can’t think of a suitable word, leave it
until the end and continue to the next gap.
• When you finish, go back to the difficult gaps and think again.
• Don’t leave any space blank. An empty gap is always wrong.
