Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following announcement. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I have your attention please? I am sorry to tell you that the police have asked us to tell everyone to move out from this building as quickly as possible. A handbag possibly containing an explosive device has been found in one of the dressing rooms backstage. Experts are on their way to examine it. We ask you to leave in a quiet and orderly way. There is absolutely no need for panic. Please make your way out by exit 1. Leave your seats row by row as directed by our staff and give any assistance necessary to elderly and disabled people. If you have children with you, make sure you do not become separate from them. Hold small children firmly by the hand. If you forget anything, please do not try to go back for it. This will only cause unnecessary confusion and delay. If you see any suspect object, do not touch it but inform. one of our staff members as you leave. Please extinguish all cigarettes. We rely on your cooperation and hope that you will be able to return to your seats shortly to enjoy the last act of the play.


11 According to the speaker, what has been found?

12 What are the listeners advised to do when making their way out?

13 Where is the announcement most probably made?


Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following talk. 

Welcome to 'Inventors' Corner'. This week we take a look at an invention that may well change the way in which you listen to your television set. Four years and twenty thousand pounds later, Susan Schofield believes she has the answer to that problem of listening to advertisements at twice the volume of the program you are watching. She was so annoyed at having to reach for the remote control every time an advertisement comes on the screen to avoid being deafened. She came up with the idea of a small device that detects when an advertisement is being shown, and automatically reduces the volume to a preset lower level. Just how the device works is a patented secret, but together with her husband, she was able to create an electronic box no bigger than your thumb that attaches to the back of the remote control itself. The only shortcoming is the remote must always be pointed directly at the TV set. However, Susan doesn't think this will reduce its selling power, and Susan ought to know. It was she who invented the telephone answering machine. Looks like Susan's done it again, with what she calls the 'Ad Subtractor'.



14. What new invention is the talk mainly about?

15. What can we learn about Susan from the talk?

16. According to the speaker, what is the shortcoming of Susan’s new invention?


Questions 17 through 20 are based on the following conversation.

W: For your speaking assignment, you will want to follow a logical series of steps in making preparations for your speech. The first step, of course, is to realize the importance of the speech to you.

M: But isn’t that always the same in this class? After all, you give us assignment and we want to get a good grade for it.

W: Yes, that’s true. But the grade isn’t the only thing that’s important.

M: So, what is more important?

W: Think of your listeners. They want you to believe what you are saying.

M: Sorry, I didn’t think of it. What’s next?

W: Next, of course, you select your subject. Then decide on your purpose. Do you simply want to inform. us about your subject or do you want to influence us in some way? Write down the statement of exactly what you wish to accomplish in the speech. This is the first step on organizing your thoughts.

M: Isn’t entertainment a purpose?

W: It could be. Yes. Your purpose could be to make your audience laugh.

M: After that I suppose I could develop my ideas interestingly and soundly.

W: Right. You’d better take the next few minutes to start brainstorming. Write down ideas that come to mind. Things that matter to you, things you feel strongly about.

M: I see. Many thanks!



17: What is the conversation mainly about?

18: According to the woman, what is more important than getting a good grade?

19: According to the woman, what should be focused on right after the selection of the subject?
