6. Diagram Completion/Labeling.
In this lesson, I will guide tips of ielts reading “Labeling a Diagram”, which will help you get high band score in reading. In this type of question, candidates are asked to label a diagram with NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS, ONE OR TWO WORDS, and NO ONCE etc. Keywords are important to find answers correctly. Generally, this type of question maintains a sequence. However, we should not be surprised if the sequence is not maintained. Find the keywords in the passage and scan those keywords carefully. Finally, transfer your answer in your answer sheet.
PARAGRAPH OF A PASSAGE
Although Goel felt being inside a brain scanner was hardly the ideal place for appreciating a joke, he found evidence that understanding a joke involves a widespread mental shift. His scans showed that at the beginning of a joke the listener’$ prefrontal cortex lit up, particularly the right prefrontal believed to be critical for problem solving. But there was also activity in the temporal lobes at the side of the head (consistent with attempts to rouse stored knowledge) and in many other brain areas. Then when the punchline arrived, a new area sprang to life -the orbital prefrontal cortex. This patch of brain tucked behind the orbits of the eyes is associated with evaluating information.
the diagram below shows the areas of the brain activated by jokes.
Label the diagram.
Choose NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS from the passage for each answer.
Write your answers in boxes 1-3 on your answer sheet.
Q1. Right prefrontal cortex lights up-area of brain linked to___________
Keywords for this Question: – Right prefrontal cortex, lights up, area, linked to
Look at carefully:-“His scans showed that at the beginning of a joke the listener’$ prefrontal cortex lit up, particularly the right prefrontal believed to be critical for problem solving.”
Similarity: – Here, lip up = lights up, right prefrontal = right prefrontal cortex, believed to be critical for = linked to
So, Answer will be: – PROBLEM SOLVING
Q2. __________become active too
Keywords for this Question: – become, active, too
Next, Look at carefully:-“…But there was also activity in the temporal lobes at the side of the head…”
Synonyms for these keywords: – activity = become active, also = too
So, Answer will be: – TEMPORAL LOBES
Q3. Orbital prefrontal cortex is activated-involved with________
Keywords for this Question: – Orbital prefrontal cortex, activated, involved with
KEEP READING CONTINUE: – Here, “Then when the punchline arrived, a new area sprang to life -the orbital prefrontal cortex. This patch of brain tucked behind the orbits of the eyes is associated with evaluating information.”
Synonyms for keywords: – sprang to life = activated, associated with = involved with
So, Answer will be: – EVALUATING INFORMATION
