It has recently been discovered that the statues on Easter Island, the Moai, were not randomly placed by the islanders in their current positions, as previously assumed. On the contrary, the placement demonstrates a thought-out, purposeful relation to the freshwater sources throughout the island. This designation may signify a relationship between the inhabitants' need for communal work and their desire to share in the the island's limited resources, though the archeologists whose work led to this discovery have yet to present a conclusive theory on this relationship.

The author suggests that the Easter Islanders placed the Moai in places where they hoped to discover fresh water sources to share with their community.

I think Adam. It would be more respectful for me to not attempting the quiz :)

Hi Adam. Such nice a quiz. A lot of tricks ;) Actually in the real IELTS test questions like these appear one after another, thus having found the first answer you have to find next one. If next answer Is, for instance, the third one, therefore the second answer will be “NOT GIVEN”. Since I applied the technique I have never made a mistake in this type of questions.

Please correct grammar ;)

Hi, Adam.
I know it’s not related to the topic, but I would like to ask a question as to usage of “about” in the context to be mentioned.
Is it right to use “about” instead of “on” in the sentence below?:
I don’t have any money on me (I don’t have any money about me).
