W: This is one of our best and least expensive two-bedroom listings. It's located in a quiet building and is close to bus lines。
M: That may be true, but look at it, it's awful. The paint has peeled off and the carpet is worn and the stove is ancient。
Q: What can we infer from the conversation?
M: The pictures we took at the Botanical Garden should be ready tomorrow.W: I can't wait to see them. I'm wondering if the shots I took is as good as I thought。
Q: What is the woman eager to know?
W: The handle of the bookcase is broken. Can you have it fixed by next Tuesday?
M: Let me see. I need to find a handle that matches, but that shouldn't take too long。
Q: What does the man mean?
M: This truck looks like what I need but I'm worried about maintenance. For us, it will have to operate for long periods of time in very cold temperatures。
W: We have several models that especially adapted for extreme conditions. Would you like to see them?
Q: What's the man's demand from the conversation?
M: I think your boss will be very upset when he gets your letter of resignation。
W: That may be so. But in the letter, I just told him frankly I could no longer live with his poor management and stupid decisions。
Q: What do we learn about the woman?
W: I'd like to exchange the shirt. I've learned the person I bought it for is allergic to wool。
M: maybe we can find something in cotton or silk. Please come this way。
Q: What does the woman want to do？
M: Excuse me Miss, did anyone happen to turn in a new hand bag? You know it's a birthday gift for my wife。
W: Let me see. Oh, we've got quite a lot of women's bags here. Can you give me more detailed information, such as its color, the size and the trade mark?
Q: Where does the conversation most probably take place?
W: What're you going to do with the old house you inherited from your grandfather?
M: I once intended to sell it. But now I'm thinking of turning it into a guest house, because it's still a solid structure。
Q: What does the man plan to do with his old house?
