A. Reading Comprehension
Read the passage and then answer the questions in complete sentences. (12 marks)

Keep up with fashion


Fashion is constantly changing. Some designs are popular for years, for example,
jeans. Others are forgotten quickly and go out of fashion. One tip is to ask yourself
this question when you choose clothes: are the clothes comfortable, attractive and
practical? If they are, they will probably be fashionable for a long time.
Fashion Tips
1. Choose the colours of your outfit carefully. Some
colours do not look nice together, for example, red
and green. Some colours, for example, black and
white, look nice with a range of other colours.
2. Fat people should not wear patterned clothing.
Plain, dark clothes are a better choice.
3. Thin people should not wear clothes with vertical
stripes. They should not wear clothes with big
patterns either.
Dressing for a date
Everyone wants to look good on a date. Men want to look handsome while women
want to look beautiful. They also want to look smart. However, they shouldnt
overdress. This will make them feel uncomfortable. So what should they wear on a
date?
Men
They should wear comfortable clothes. Like the
model, they can wear a pair of boot-cut jeans to go
with a nice polo shirt. A denim jacket on top will
make them look cool. This outfit will definitely
impress a woman.
Women
They shouldnt wear baggy clothing, as it will
make them look plain. However, they should also
avoid wearing clothing that is too tight. Look at
the model and see how the spaghetti top, hipster
jeans, hip belt and platform shoes make her look
smart and stylish at the same time.
Questions:
1. What kind of clothes will likely be fashionable for a longer period of time?
2. What kind of clothes should fat people wear?
3. Why shouldnt thin people wear clothes with vertical stripes?
4. Which of the following clothing items are popular for years?
a) spaghetti top
b) denim jacket
c) jeans
5. What kinds of clothing should women not wear on a date? (*4 marks)
