M: Boating and skating are my favourite sports.
W: I like swimming but not boating or skating.
Q: Which sport does the woman like?
W: Have you finished reading my research report? I put it on your desk last week.
M: Yes, but you have to revise some parts of it, I'm afraid, if you want to get it published.
Q: What does the man suggest that the woman should do?
M: Hi, Susan. I hear that you walk all the way to the office these days.
W: Yes. I have found great pleasure in walking. That's the type of exercise I enjoy very much.
Q: Why does the woman walk all the way to the office?
M: How about the food I ordered? I've been waiting for twenty minutes already.
W: I'm Very sorry, sir. I'll be back with your order in a minute.
Q: What's the woman's job?
W: Excuse me, sir. I'm going to send this parcel to London. What's the postage for it?
M: Let me see. It's one pound and fifty.
Q: Who is the woman most probably speaking to?
M: I think it's high time we turned our attention to the danger of drunk driving now.
W: I can't agree with you more. You see, countless innocent people are killed by drunk drivers each year.
Q: What does the woman mean?
W: Here's a ten-dollar bill. Give me two tickets for tonight's show,please.
M: Sure. Two tickets and here's a dollar forty cents change.
Q: How much does one ticket cost?
M: Are you sure you've corrected all the typing errors in this paper?
W: Perhaps I'd better read it through again.
Q: What's the woman going to do ?
M: Mary, would you like to go to the movies with me after dinner?
W: Well, I'll go if you really want me to, but I'm rather tired.
Q: What can we conclude from this conversation?
M: If I were you, I'd ride a bike to work. Taking a crowded bus during rush hours is really terrible.
W: Thank you for your advice, but my bike has got a flat tyre.
Q: How would the woman most probably get to work?
