PTE Mock Test – Summarize Written Text

  1. Read and summarize written text in your words.

Prior to the first arrival of Europeans in North America in the sixteenth century, Native Americans had traded with neighboring tribes for centuries. Their cultures valued unusual items brought from afar. Often these items, such as coastal shells traded in the landlocked Northeast, were used in the prized garments of the wealthy. When Europeans arrived on the coasts of the continent, Native Americans began to adopt European items into their clothing styles. Some of the first European, or Western, items used by Native Americans were glass beads and stroud cloth, a cheap heavy wool fabric dyed blue, red, or green and made in Stroudwater, England.

By the early 1800s calico and gingham cotton cloth was also popular among Native Americans. At first, Native Americans used Western items as raw material to craft clothing in their traditional styles. Later they would embellish Western styles with beaded decoration or silver ornaments, or use Western styles in their own ways, by cutting the seat out of trousers to make leggings or sewing buttons on a garment for decoration instead of as fasteners, for example. But as more white settlers encroached on their homelands and eventually forced tribes onto reservations (public land set aside for Native Americans to live), Native Americans slowly discontinued their traditional dress for ready-made Western style clothes.

There are so many goods available in the market that the producer can save the consumer a good deal of time and money by telling him exactly what he can provide. But once he has done this, effort is directed towards persuading the consumer to buy his products because they are either better or cheaper than somebody else‟s.

If canvassing for the latter purpose is to achieve success, it must be appropriately presented and regularly, not sporadically, repeated. It is necessary to differentiate between information, which we may need about a new product and canvassing, which endeavors to persuade us to make a choice between various products.

In the case of new commodities, advertising is necessary to introduce them to the consuming public and to explain their uses. This is particularly true of mechanical equipment with which the public may not be familiar.

Advertising may also be advantageous to the consumer, because it produces an increase in consumption and production and a reduction in price. Frequent advertising may also help to stabilize demand and a stable market leads to consistent production and a reduction of waste.
