TOEIC Practice - Part 6: Text Completion
In Part 6 you will read four passages of text, such as an article, a letter, a form and an e-mail. In each reading passage there will be three blanks to fill in. You will read four possible choices for each blank. You should read the entire passage to make sure you choose the correct choice in context.
Example 1: Letter
- Choice A is a noun.
- Choice C is an adjective that does not fit logically in context. This letter is from a stationery store, so anyone can purchase items there. Something that is "valid" is allowed or permitted.
- Choice D is a verb.
The correct answer is B. An adjective is necessary. A "valued customer" is one who shops somewhere often.
- Choice A is a preposition that indicates going from one end to another. (I went through a tunnel.)
- Choice C is a preposition used when one is passing something to reach another thing. (I went over the bridge.)
- Choice D is a preposition used with times or specific venues. (I went at ten o'clock. We met at the mall.)
The correct answer is B. The preposition "on" is used with geographic places such as "island" or mountain.
- Choices A and C are incorrect because you can't "purchase" or "fund" money.
- Choice D is incorrect because "collected" is followed by the word "from" not "to".
The correct answer is B. "Donated" is the correct passive verb form used to describe money or items given to a good cause.
Example 2: Internal Memo
- Choices A, C, and D do not follow "rather" when a comparison between two things is being made.
The correct answer is B. The phrase "rather than" is used in a comparison.
- Choice B does not fit in context. The verb means to agree to something in order to resolve a disagreement.
- Choice C does not fit in context. The verb means to organize according to a certain system.
- Choice D does not fit in context. The verb means to look into something in detail
The correct answer is A. The verb "apologize" means to say sorry.
- Choice A is an incorrect conjunction that is used in a result clause. (I called the manager because the customer was angry.) The sale hasn't happened yet.
- Choice B requires two things to occur. (Call the manager whether or not the customer complains.)
- Choice D is illogical in context, because a salesperson wouldn't call the manager to help before the customer complained.
The correct answer is C. The word "if" is required to complete the conditional clause.
