|1||D||The initial lines of paragraph D state that “Ted Baker Voyager’s Travel Wallet’, it is mentioned this wallet comes in smooth black leather.” Since leather is a natural material obtained from the tanning, or chemical treatment, of animal skins, it perfectly suits people who prefer natural materials. Hence, the correct answer is ‘D’.|
|2||B||The first line of paragraph B mentions that “this is a waterproof wallet.” As the wallet is a waterproof wallet, it will not get affected by water. As a result, these wallet users do not need to worry about taking it out in the rain. Hence, the correct answer is ‘B.’|
|3||C||In paragraph C, ‘Cath Kidston Breton Stripe’, it conveys that “The inside compartment labels identifying each separate section all have silver lettering on them.” The aforementioned line states that there is ‘silver lettering on all of them’, which means that the wallets compartments are printed in one colour. Hence, the correct answer is ‘C’.|

|6||G||Paragraph G ‘Go travel Glo Travel Wallet’ mentions that “It is made of PVC plastic and will suit those who like a wallet that is easy to spot.” We can deduce that the documents can be easily located from the word ‘easy to spot’. Therefore, making it suitable for people who want to find their wallets easily in their luggage. Hence, the correct answer is ‘G’.|
|7||E||As per Paragraph E lines, “This plain travel wallet opens up to reveal pockets in various colours.” Also, “It comes in a handy drawstring bag.” Therefore, it has a drawstring bag that holds the wallet. Hence, the correct answer is ‘E’.|

|9||TRUE||The beginning lines of Paragraph A conveys that generally, “if you have been delayed on a train journey, you may be able to claim compensation, but train companies all have different rules” From the line as mentioned earlier, we can deduce that you can claim the compensation, but it will differ from company to company, which means the system for claiming compensation varies from one company to another. As the statement agrees with the information, the correct answer is ‘TRUE’.|
|10||FALSE||In Paragraph B, there’s a line that mentions “that delay repay is a train operator scheme to compensate passengers when trains are late, and the train company will pay out even if it was not responsible for the delay.” Since the term ‘train company will pay out even if it was not responsible for the delay’ clearly negates the statement. As the statement contradicts the information, the correct answer is ‘FALSE’.|
|11||FALSE||Paragraph B mentions that “The scheme varies between companies, but up to 2016 most paid 50 per cent of the single ticket cost for 30 minutes’ delay and 100 per cent for an hour. On the London Underground, you get a full refund for 15-minutes delays.” In other words, train companies repay the amount but do not give the same amount of money as compensation. As the statement contradicts the information, the correct answer is ‘FALSE.’|
|12||NOT GIVEN||As per Paragraph B, the delay repay is a train operator scheme to compensate passengers when trains are late, and the train company will pay out even if it was not responsible for the delay. However, it does not explicitly mention that an increasing number of train companies are willing to pay compensation for problems they are not responsible for. Hence, the correct answer is ‘NOT GIVEN’.|
|13||TRUE||As per Paragraph C, “companies that do not use Delay Repay and still use the older scheme will not usually pay compensation if the problem is considered to be out of their control. Moreover, you are unlikely to get compensation for the strike action.” Therefore, if the company uses an older scheme, it will not usually pay for strike action. As the statement agrees with the information, hence the correct answer is ‘TRUE’.|
|14||TRUE||“National Rail Conditions of Travel state that you are entitled to compensation in the same form that you paid for the ticket,” says a line in paragraph D. Some railway companies continue to pay using rail vouchers, which they are permitted to do provided you do not request a cash refund.” As a result, the phrase “Some train companies are still paying using rail vouchers, which they are allowed to do if you do not ask for a cash refund” answers the questions directly. As the statement agrees with the information, hence the correct answer is ‘TRUE’.|
