50 x PET Reading Part 3 – True/False

There are 10 questions, which are single-sentence statements about a longer factual text. Candidates should concentrate on obtaining the specific information required from the text, and not worry if they meet an unfamiliar word or phrase.


  • Read the questions, which are single-sentence statements.
  • Scan the text to find the answer to the first statement. The answers in the text are in the same order as the questions.
  • Repeat this for the remaining statements.
  • Do not worry about unfamiliar words, which are likely to appear in this part. These words are not required to answer the questions.
  • Focus instead on finding the specific information to decide if the statements are true or false.
