1.W: What a wonderful performance! Your rock band has never sounded better。
M: Many thanks. I guess all those hours of practice in the past month are finally paying off。
Q：What does the man mean?
2.M: I can't decide what to do for my summer vacation. I either want to go on a bike tour of Europe or go diving in Mexico。
W: Well, we're offering an all-inclusive two-week trip to Mexico for only 300 dollars。
Q：What does the woman suggest the man do for his vacation?
3. W: How long do you think this project might take?
M: I'd say about three months, but it could take longer if something unexpected happened. Maybe we'd better allow an extra month, so we won’t have to worry about being late。
Q: Why does the man say extra time should be allowed for the project?
4. M: I'm thinking about becoming a member here, and I'd like some information。
W: Sure. A three-month membership costs 150 dollars, and that includes use of the wait-room, sauna and pool. I'll give you a free path so that you can try out the facilities before you decide。
Q: What do we learn from the conversation?
5.W: I'm sorry to hear that you failed the Physics course, Ted。
M: Let's face it. I'm just not cut out to be a scientist。
Q: What does the man mean?
6.M: Gary insisted on buying the food for the picnic。
W: That's pretty generous of him. But shouldn't we at least offer to share the expenses? He has a big family to support。
Q: What does the woman suggest they do?
7.W: Did you see the headlines in the paper this morning?
M: Year. Apparently the bus company will be laying off its employees if they can't reach an agreement on wages by midnight。
Q: What did the man read about?
8.W: Have we received payment for the overseas order we delivered last month?
M: Yes. The cheque came in yesterday afternoon. I'll be depositing it when I go the bank today。
Q: What is the woman concerned about?
