GAP-FILLING: MULTIPLE CHOICE

Paper 3 of the Use of English paper has a multiple-choice gap-filling exercise which tests your knowledge of vocabulary. You are given a text with many gaps in it, and you have to decide which of four words or phrases best fills each gap. Follow these steps to help you do this well.

1. READING A TEXT

Always read through the whole text first to get a general idea of the topic.

2. WHAT IS TESTED

These four different aspects of your knowledge of vocabulary are tested:

1

WORDS WHICH USUALLY GO TOGETHER
For example, look at
[1] in the practice text below. Only one of the nouns (attention, care, notice, study) goes with the verb pay. Which one?

2

DIFFERENCES IN MEANING BETWEEN SIMILAR WORDS
For example, look at
[6]. Which of these words with a similar meaning (evidence, fact, proof, sign) is the only possible one in this sentence?

3

PHRASAL VERBS
Now, look at
[11]. Which of these phrasal verbs with "up" (count up, hold up, make up, take up) has the appropriate meaning?

4

PREPOSITIONS OR STRUCTURES
Look, for example,, at
[13]. Which of these nouns (mention, note, record, reference) is followed by "to"? And in [14], which of these verbs (deny, forbid, oppose, refuse) is followed by a "that" clause?

A PRACTICE EXERCISE

WOMEN IN HISTORY

Some historians, mostly women, argue that insufficient [1] (attention, care, notice, study) has been paid to a very important group: women.

According to the history books, cavemen provided most of the food for their families through hunting animals. But the [6]  (evidence, fact, proof, sign) shows that 80% of the diet of prehistoric humans was vegetarian and it was collected by females.

Women [11] (count up, hold up, make up, take up) half the human race. If there is no [13] (mention, note, record, reference) to their contribution to history in the textbooks, then the real story is not being told.

However many male historians [14] (deny, forbid, oppose, refuse) that important female figures have been kept out of the history books.

FINAL ADVICE

As you decide how to fill each gap, think about:

the general idea of the whole text.

the meaning of the word you are choosing.

how the word you are choosing fits in that particular sentence.

the other words or grammatical structures which go with that word in the sentence.
