    Note:

    It is implied from the question that there are actually two correct answers.

    Option A

    As said in the paragraph, the Country Comfort Inn is built on a garden with many amenities, among which are two restaurants. Therefore, option A is a correct answer.

    Option B

    Guests who select Siesta Motel as their destinations can enjoy high quality meals at the Maitland City Bowling Club, not restaurants. Therefore, option B is incorrect.

    Option C

    As a matter of fact, the Endeavour East Maitland Motel is accompanied by a fully licensed restaurant. Therefore, option C is correct.

Morpeth developed into a town because

  • A
  • B
  • C
Answer: C

Keywords in Questions

Similar words in Passage

Q6: Morpeth developed into a town because

  1. It was serviced by a railroad line

  2. Of Lieutenant Close’s planning

  3. It was conveniently situated on a waterway

Option A

However, in 1870 a railway line reached the town, and the importance of river shipping began to decline.

Option B

The town of Morpeth grew from an original 2000 acres of land given to an English army officer, Lieutenant Edward Close (1790-1866), in 1821.

Option C

During the 1830s and 1840s, Morpeth became a major river port due to its favourable location.

Note:

Option A

It is implied from the passages that Morpeth developed into a town during the 1830s and 1840s. In contrast, the railroad line officially reached the town in 1870. Therefore, we can conclude that Morpeth was serviced by a railroad line after it became a town. As a result, the fact that it was serviced by a railroad line is not a reason for the development of Morpeth town.

For that reason, option A is incorrect.

Option B

From the paragraph, we understand that Morpeth originated from the land of Lieutenant Close. Nevertheless, whether Lieutenant Close planned to transform Morpeth into a town is never stated.

For that reason, option B is irrelevant.

Option C

It is clarified in the paragraphs that Morpeth became a river port, thanks to its favourable location. Thus, we can imply that Morpeth was situated on a waterway.

For that reason, option C is correct.

Answer: B

Keywords in Questions

Similar words in Passage

Q7: The town of Morpeth was known for

  1. The goods and services it provided

  2. Transporting goods to Sydney

  3. Bringing goods inland

Produce, leather goods and timber were brought to Morpeth from inland New South Wales and shipped down the Hunter River to the coast and then to Sydney

Note:

Option A

We are aware that Morpeth did not produce or provide any goods or services. Instead, it imported goods from New South Wales.

For that reason, option A is incorrect.

Option C

It is clear that Morpeth imported goods from inland New South Wales and transported them to the coast and to Sydney. In fact, Morpeth did not bring goods inland.

For that reason, option C is incorrect.

Option B

We understand that Morpeth imported goods from inland New South Wales. The destination of the goods was Sydney, so Morpeth needed to transport them down the Hunter River to the coast and then to Sydney.

For that reason, option B is correct.

  • B
  • C
Answer: C

Keywords in Questions

Similar words in Passage

Q8: Morpeth is popular with visitors today because of

  1. The historic railway line of 1870

  2. The many historic shops

  3. The many attractive historic buildings

Option A

However, in 1870 a railway line reached the town, and the importance of river shipping began to decline.

Option C

Today, Morpeth, with its beautiful old buildings, is a popular tourist destination.

This covers about three kilometres, and takes visitors past many beautiful historic buildings.

Starting at Fig Tree Hill, which has picnic facilities, stroll past the Surgeon’s Cottage, built in 1845, formerly home of the local doctor, now shops.

Opposite it on the right is the Courthouse, still in use today.

Stroll past gracious houses until you come to the Church of the Immaculate Conception on your right, built of bricks made in Gosford.

Your tour of Morpeth finishes at magnificent Closebourne House, built in 1826 by Lieutenant Edward Close.

Note:

Option A

As a matter of fact, the railway line affected the importance of river shipping. However, whether Morpeth is famous for its 1870 railway line is never mentioned throughout the paragraphs.

For that reason, option A is incorrect.

Option B

Throughout the paragraphs, we do not see any historic shop mentioned as favourite destinations of visitors.

For that reason, option B is incorrect.

Option C

The writer confirms it twice that Morpeth is famous for its beautiful historic buildings. Furthermore, the writer even recommends a list of historic buildings that visitors should come and see, including: the Surgeon’s Cottage, the Courthouse, the Church of the Immaculate Conception and the Closebourne House.

For that reason, option C is correct.

Morpeth is today a small town about two hours’ drive north of Sydney. The town of Morpeth grew from an original 2000 acres of land given to an English army officer, Lieutenant Edward Close (1790-1866), in 1821.

During the 1830s and 1840s, Morpeth became a major river port due to its favourable location.
