Read the following passage and choose the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the blanks.


In Part Three of the Speaking Section, you work together with a partner. You have to do a task which usually lasts about 3 minutes. One possible task is “problem-solving”, which means you have to look at some information and then discuss the problem with your partner. You may be shown photos, drawings, diagrams, maps, plans, advertisements or computer graphics and it is that you study them carefully. If necessary, check you know exactly what to do by politely asking the examiner to repeat the instruction or make them clearer. 

While you are doing the task, the examiner will probably say very little and you should ask your partner questions and make if he or she is not saying much. If either of you have any real difficulties, the examiner may decide to step in and help. Normally, however, you will find plenty to say, which helps the assessor to give you a fair mark. This mark depends on your success in doing the task by competing with your partner, which includes taking in giving opinions and replying appropriately, although, in the end, it may be possible to “agree or disagree”.
