I would like to have some clarification on the below question and its given answer.
Does the following statement agree with the views of the writer in given passage? You have to answer,
- True: If the statement agrees with the writer
- False: If the state does not agree with the writer
- Not given: if there is no information about this in the passage
Guitar was used in rock and roll from the 1940s.
In the earliest rock and roll styles of the late 1940s and early 1950s, either the piano or saxophone was often the lead instrument, but these were generally replaced or supplemented by guitar in the middle to late 1950s.
According to the tutor, the answer is FALSE but I think the answer to this question should actually be NOT GIVEN. The passage says guitar generally became the LEAD instrument in the 1950s, It DOES NOT SAY clearly whether guitars were used in 1940s or not. Hence the answer should be NOT GIVEN.
Which is the correct answer?
