11. W: Did you use credit cards on your vacation last month in Europe?
M: Sure did. They certainly beat going around with a wallet full of big bills. But carrying lots of cash is still very common among some older people travelling abroad.
Q: What does the man say about some elderly people?
12. W: Rod must be in a bad mood today. What’s wrong with him?

Q: What does the man mean?
13. M: What a great singer Justin is! His concert is just awesome and you’ll never regret the money you paid for the ticket.
W: Yeah, judging by the amount of applause, everyone was enjoying it.
Q: What does the woman mean?
14. W: I received an email yesterday from Henry. Do you remember he was one of the chairpersons of our Students’ Union?
M: Yes, but I haven’t heard from him for ages. Actually, I have been out of touch with him since our first reunion after graduation.
Q: What do we learn about the speakers?
15. M: Driving at night always makes me tired. Let’s stop the dinner.

Q: What will the speakers probably do?
16. W: Let’s look at the survey on consumer confidence we conducted last week. How reliable are these figures?
M: They have a 5% margin of error.
Q: What are the speakers talking about?
17. W: Look at this catalogue John. I think I want to get this red blouse.
M: Eh, I think you already have one like this in blue. Do you need every color in the rainbow?
18. W: This notice says that all the introductory marketing classes are closed.
M: That can’t be true. There are supposed to be 13 of them this semester.
