Hi Simon,

Can I replace residents by citizens?


Simon,even reading is testing the paraphrasing ( synonymous)?

This is not Simon but these are my views:

@ Sun
Some even use Antonyms. About 80% of the questions are paraphrased in the Reading Passage. I don't know the exact figure but I think it's pretty close.

@ Quan
Not all American citizens live in the US so I would not use the word "citizens" in this context. But you can use it in Task 2 if the topic has something to do with Government and people.


immigration, emigration
Please explain the meaning of above two words.

Hi Kzi,

Immigration and emmigration means entering and leaving the country respectively.
