15.W: Have you heard the news that James Mill has resigned his post as prime minister?
M: Well. I got it from the headline this morning. It reported that he made public his decision at the last cabinet meeting。
Q: What do we learn about James Mill?
16. W: The morning paper says the space shuttle is taking off at 10 AM tomorrow。
M: Yeah. It’s just another one of this year’s routine missions. The first mission was undertaken a decade ago, and broadcast live then worldwide。
Q: What can we infer from this conversation?
17. M: We do a lot of camping in the mountains. What would you recommend for two people?
W: You’d probably be better off with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. We have several trucks in stock, both new and used。
Q: Where does this conversation most probably take place?
18. W: I hear you did some serious shopping this past weekend。
M: Yeah. The speakers from my old stereo finally gave out and there was no way to repair them。
Q: What did the man do over the weekend?
