Sentence completion and line matching

Foundation tier papers may include questions in which you have to complete a sentence, or draw lines to match correct options. These questions will include distractors, which are incorrect choices.

Make sure you only use words from the given list. When you answer a line matching question, use straight lines rather than complex wavy lines. Do not draw more lines than necessary to answer the question.
