"Gap fill" is exactly what it sounds like. You are given a passage and below that there are several sentences with missing words. You are expected to pick the correct word from the passage text and fill it in the gap. Some times there is a list of choices that you can choose from.
The key to solving Gap Fill questions is having good grammar. The missing word or phrase is usually a modified grammatical form of the original word so you should be skilled in transforming a noun to an adjective or a verb to an adverb etc.
Follow the strategy below to solve Gap Fill questions.
This one is quite simple. You need to read a passage and label (write a description) in 1 to 3 words for different parts of a drawing according to what you read.
Treat this as another gap fill question, the only difference being that the summary is depicted in a diagram rather than words. Start by looking at the diagram and try to guess what the gap labels might be referring to. Then quickly scan the article as described in the strategy for gap fill questions above and write the correct word / phrase in the answer sheet.
Follow these simple tips for diagram and table labelling questions:
TIP 1: Don’t ignore the key words and phrases in the table itself, use them to help you predict the type of word you need to find in the text!
TIP 2: The answers may not follow the order of the text, but are generally in the same part.
TIP 3: Remember to use words from the text without changing them or using more than the maximum number stated.
