Causes of Conflicts Between Adolescents and Their Parents
In the following Open Cloze, one word is needed to fill each gap. The main emphasis is on structure. You need to think about:
- word combinations such as collocations, fixed phrases and phrasal verbs
- structural items such as auxiliary verbs, prepositions, pronouns and articles
- linking devices such as despite, unless, and but
Some gaps may require a vocabulary item where the choice depends only on meaning, with no grammatical clues supplied. In this case, think about the meaning of the passage as a whole, and look for clues to meaning such as opposites, examples and synonyms.
