M: Hello, this is John Hopkins at the Riverside Health Center. I'd like to speak to Mr. Jones.

W: I'm sorry, Mr. Hopkins, my husband isn't at home. But I can give you his office phone number. He won't be back until 6 o'clock.

Q: Where does Mrs. Jones think her husband is now?

2.
M: Let me see. I have printed my family name, first name, date of birth, and address. Anything else?

W: No. that's all right. We'll fill in the rest of it if you'll just sign your name at the bottom.

Q: What has the man been doing?

3.
W: I had to deal with so many courses last term that I really had a hard time.

M: I told you it would be better for you if you took fewer courses during the first semester.

Q: What do we learn about the woman?

4.
W: Weren't you nervous when the professor called on you in class?

M: I'd say I was shaking all over.

Q: How did the man feel when he was called on?

5.
W: Hey, Mike, what's that you're reading?

M: It's a letter from a company where I applied for a job. They're offering me a job after I graduate.

Q: What do we learn about Mike?

6.
M: Think it over carefully, you must have left it somewhere.

W: But the problem is that I have to have it now. I need it to use my car, and when I get home, to open the door.

Q: What happened to the woman?

7.
W: How much time did you have for writing the paper?

M: We were given three hours, but I finished in less than half the time.

Q: How long did it take the man to write his paper?

8.
M: Let's see if the basketball game has started yet.

W. Started? It must be clear who is winning by now.

Q: What does the woman mean?

9.
M: What do you think of my paper?

W: The ideas are good. If I were you, though, I'd rewrite the last two paragraphs to make it better.

Q: What's the woman's comment on the man's paper?

10.

M: A young man, Madam?
