Answers:

11. b. The statement, "Yes, I am fine here," appropriately responds to a question about whether someone is comfortable. Choice a gives a location, not a yes or no answer and choice c answers an unrelated question.

12. c. Choice c gives directions on how to get to
the post office, while choice a tells who takes
the mail, and choice b talks about buying
stamps.

13. a. This choice gives a time that the manager
will probably be back. Choice b talks instead
about when the speaker will leave. Choice c
is completely unrelated.

14. b. Choice b gives the location of the tickets.
Choice c is not correct because it tells what
the tickets are for and choice a tells where
they came from.

15. c. An appropriate answer about how long the
trip took gives a length of time. Choice a is
about how the speaker traveled, not how
long it took. Choice b is unrelated.

16. a. Thirty minutes is not long, so they must
hurry to get there before the bank closes.
Choice b talks about what the speaker is
doing at the bank, but does not respond to
the fact that the bank closes in 30 minutes.
Choice c is unrelated.

17. b. Choice b responds correctly to the question,
by telling when the speaker was in Chicago.
Choice a refers to "him," indicating that it is
about a person, rather than a place. Choice c
answers an unrelated question.

18. a. "Yes, it was definitely a success" is a good
answer to a question about whether the
meeting went well. Choice b and choice c do
not seem to be about the success of the
meeting.

19. c. Telling someone that he or she has messages
is a good way to answer a question about
whether anyone called while the person was
away. Choice b gives the time, and choice a
refers to an explanation.

20. b. Choice b agrees with the statement about
the flu, making it the best choice. Choice a
asks a question about a person who is ill,
but does not respond appropriately to the
statement. Choice c is unrelated to the
statement.

21. c. Choice c tells us that the copier is still
broken, or not working yet. Choice a speaks
about a person rather than a machine.
Choice b talks about the weight of the
machine, but not whether it is working.

22. b. The question asks for a yes or no response
to the question of whether the traffic was
bad. Choice b gives the answer, "yes," with
some elaboration. Choice a tells when the
speaker leaves for work, and choice c talks
about the train, neither of which answers
the question.

23. a. It tells how the trip was—wonderful. Choice
c is incorrect because it tells how long the
trip was. Choice b is unrelated.
24. c. Choice c gives the time that the flight
arrived. Choice a is incorrect because it tells
how long the flight was, and choice b is
incorrect because it gives the flight number.

25. a. The question asks where the listener prefers
to wait, and choice a responds with a
suggestion that they wait in the lobby.
Choices b and c are incorrect. Choice c talks
about a cancelled reservation and choice b
answers an unrelated question.

26. b. The speaker responds to the statement
about the parade by commenting that he
would like to see it. Choice a makes a
nonsensical comment about the mayor and
answer c asks an unrelated question.

27. a. "I haven't seen it" is an appropriate response
to the question of whether someone left her
purse in the room. "It was very interesting"
does not respond to the question, nor does
"I am missing several."

28. c. In choice c the speaker gives permission to
borrow the book, along with a reminder to
return it. Choice a is incorrect because,
instead of answering the question, it talks
about something that the speaker probably
will not do. Choice b does not answer the
question about the book.

29. a. The answer implies that the speaker does
not know whether he likes it because he has
never tried it. Choice b and choice c give
information about sushi, but offer no
indication of whether the speaker likes it.

30. c. The speakers agree that the data is
confusing; one uses the word "confusing"
while the other says that it is "difficult to
analyze." Choice c does not answer the
question; it talks about the frequency with
which the speaker uses the data. Choice b
talks about how current the data is, not
whether it is confusing.

31. b. Only choice b answers the past tense "when"
question with a definite time.

32. c. Choice c is the best answer; it politely
declines the invitation. Choice a talks about
leaving something at the restaurant, and
choice b talks about the weather.

33. a. In the question, the speaker offers help in
finding what the listener is looking for. In
choice a, a woman responds by telling what
she is looking for. Choice b and choice c are
unrelated to the question.

34. c. The two speakers agree that the new printer
is better. Choice b tells what printers use,
but makes no comparison between this
printer and the old one. Choice a also offers
no comparison, but offers to lend
something to the speaker.

35. c. This question asks for a location, which
choice c gives. Choice a doesn't give a
location, rather it tells when the train leaves.
Choice b compares the speed of the train to
that of the bus.

36. b. Choice b tells what the speaker will wear to
the party. The party is in the future, as is
indicated by the words "going to" in the
question. Choice a talks about a party in the
past. Choice c expresses a dislike for ironing,
but doesn't answer the question.

37. a. Choice a gives the price of the tickets.
Choice b talks about not understanding the
rules of baseball, but doesn't give the price
of game tickets. Choice c accepts an
invitation that was not offered.

38. a. "Not yet" is a good response to a question
about whether the mail has come. Choice c
is incorrect because it talks about a problem
with the mail, but not whether it has come
or not.

39. b. An appropriate response to someone who is
having trouble with the Internet is a
suggestion that they check the connection.
Choice a suggests calling a doctor, but
doctors do not have much to do with an
Internet problem. Choice c talks about uses
of the Internet, not what to do if there is a
problem with it.

40. b. The question is looking for the reason that
the listener was not at work on the previous
day. Choice b gives the reason, an appointment.
Choice a gives an unrelated response,
and choice c tells what is happening now,
not what happened yesterday.
