Part I Listening Comprehension (20 minutes)
Directions: In this section, you will hear 10 short conversations. At the end of each conversation, a question will be asked about what was said. Both the conversation and the question will be spoken only once. After each question there will be a pause. During the pause, you must read the four choices marked［A］,［B］,［C］ and［D］, and decide which is the best answer. Then mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the centre.

［C］ At the airport. ［D］ In a restaurant.

Therefore, ［A］ “At the office” is the best answer. You should choose ［A］ on the Answer Sheet and mark it with a single line through the centre.
