Although the tests are multiple choice, the Study Guide warns that they’re quite tricky. For instance, technically any of the people named in Question 1 above could choose, but the word ‘usually’ means that the correct answer must be (b).

Similarly, the Study Guide warns people taking the test to watch out for true-or-false questions which include absolute statements, eg ones which include the words ‘all’, ‘always’ or ‘never’. Because there are so many things about British life which are determined by custom, convention or accepted practice rather than regulation, absolute statements are often false.
