IELTS Reading Task: Classification Question

Posted On // Leave a Comment
These questions ask you to classify information given in the reading text. Classifications are often according to the writer’s opinion or according to a period of time or place. You will be asked to identify a letter which represents one of the classifications for each item in a list of statements.


Look at the example below.
Questions 1 -4
Classify the following statements as referring to
US the United States
J Japan
G Germany
or UK the United Kingdom
Write the appropriate letters in boxes 1-4 on your answer sheet.
NB You may use any answer more than once.
1 The biggest spenders on personal travel.
2 Had the greatest number of international travellers in 2002.
3 Take the majority of their holidays in Western Europe.
4 Employ the most people in the tourist industry.

How to do:
-          Read the instructions carefully,
-          Make sure you know how many classifications there are and what letters you have to use. (e.g. US, J, G & UK in the exercise above),
-          Read the classifications carefully. Make sure you don’t confuse the letters which represent each one.
-          Read the statements/phrases or words beside the question numbers and underline the key words.
-          Start with the first statement and work your way through them one by one, searching the text to find where the info is mentioned.
-          The questions will not necessarily be in the same order as the text and the wording will probably be different in the text so look out for synonyms and parallel expressions.
-          When you’ve located the reference in the text, read it carefully and select your answer.
-          Don’t leave any statements without a letter.
