I see no point referring to strength in such a contemptuous tone.

He just points out the dualism of weak and strong. There is no strong if there is no weak, like there is no yang if there is no yin. Also, strong is weak compared with stronger.

Band 7: Good User Has operational command of the language, though with occasional inaccuracies, inappropriateness and misunderstandings in some situations. Generally handles complex language well and understands detailed reasoning.

Band 8: Very Good User Has fully operational command of the language with only occasional unsystematic inaccuracies and inappropriacies. Misunderstandings may occur in unfamiliar situations. Handles complex detailed argumentation well.

You got 6.5 on Reading. Reading should be your best part, IMO. Students of English as a foreign language normally ace this. Understand the material in detail, then give the correct answer.

I wounder what percentage of native speakers or their college graduate are considered Band 8.

Because women are the fairer sex, and men are pigs: we eat up whatever that is in the trough. No offense to men.

The USA is collectively keeping a cool head on North Korea for now. According to some zealot we should have nuked north Korea already, and China while we are at it since China is not really doing our bidding to our heart's desire.

From its sound, Carroll explained the word as "a state of mind when the voice is gruffish, the manner roughish, and the temper huffish."
