[A] He was ready to make a concession.
[B] He was not prepared to go to court.
[C] He was not intimidated.
[D] He was a bit concerned.
由选项中的concession(让步)，go to court, intimidate(威胁)， concerned(担心)等词可推测问题应该与男士对某事的反应有关。[A]是说他准备让步，[B]是说他不准备上法庭，二者都表示男士要“妥协退让” 的含义，故很可能都不是答案。
M: Get the branches off my property or I’ll have to sue you.
M: Yeah? For what?! …
W: You’ll be hearing from me.
M: Yeah, yeah. See you in court, Jane.
22. What was the man’s reaction to the woman’s threat?
【解析】选[C]。女士说让男士等着收法庭的传票(hear from me)，男士的回答“Yeah, yeah. See you in court(法庭见)”表明他根本not intimidated(不怕威胁)。
