Question transcript

When it comes to visual art, common sense suggests that propaganda is at odds with greatness. Take the famous recruitment poster issued by the British government at the start of the First World War, featuring Lord Kitchener’s stern, moustachioed face staring out above the slogan ‘Your Country Needs YOU’. It is a memorable and effective piece of graphic design – but hardly quality art.

Can art commissioned by the state ever be any good? “Art is something subversive,” Pablo Picasso once said. “If art is ever given the keys to the city, it will be because it’s been so watered down, rendered so impotent, that it’s not worth fighting for.”

The words in bold correspond to the blanks you need to fill.

The most important thing in PTE Listening Fill in the blanks question type is to decide beforehand whether you will type in the blanks directly into the screen or first note down the words in your rough notepad and in the end copy them into the screen. Your choice should depend upon how confident you are of your ability to listen and type directly. If you can’t do that, then it is better to first write them down in your rough notepad. Whichever method you adopt, make sure you follow it during your entire practice and for all questions of this type in the exam.

Working out the best method to follow across 20 different question types can be challenging for anyone. It can take a long time for you to figure out the perfect strategy to use in these questions.
