Angol középszintű érettségi, 2015. május

• Read this article about a new kind of mirror and then read the sentences following it.
• Decide whether the statements are true or false, according to the article, or if there isn’t enough information in the text to decide.
• At the real exam, the first question is always an example - here you have to solve it too.
• If you make a mistake, please try again until you find all the correct answers - note that this is of course different at the exam too because there you don't have a second (or third) chance. The scoring is also different here because of this; if you want to see your real life score, only count your correct answers that you got right first time.
• Use the arrows <= and => to move between the questions.
• You needn't answer the questions in the given order but you must answer all of them correctly to complete this task.

Mirror, mirror on the wall...

When IKEA discovered that nearly half of Brits surveyed by them didn’t receive a single compliment during the week and that a third of the UK population thinks it looks its worst before 9 a.m. on Monday mornings, the Swedish furniture giant decided to do something about it.
Faster than you can say "Mirror, Mirror..." the company's UK unit developed a talking mirror that (thanks to digital technology) compliments customers walking by with pick-up lines such as “Have you been working out?” and “Your eyes are wonderful.” or “You look fabulous today.” While the words are spoken, they are written across the mirror as well. The effect on customers was immediate and amusing.
“We all know how that first look in the bathroom or bedroom mirror can determine whether we have a good or bad day,” said Myriam Ruffo in a press release about why IKEA is reinventing the mirror. “That’s why we thought—wouldn’t it be great if the mirror actually told you something positive for a change? It’s often the small things that make the biggest difference.” Indeed. The mirror is currently being tested in one location in the UK but it seems likely that its voice will soon be heard in other locations.
