31-34  Conversation between a student and guidance counselor
*Hello, John. You must be pleased. After all how many students are lucky enough to have been accepted at their first and their second choices?
*Not many I know. But I'm not sure yet which one to choose.
*Well, you seem to have doubts about the state university. But its biology department has a fine reputation. What more could a biology major want?
*Yeah. And they also have internships for seniors. But a friend told me that for the first two years some lectures have a hundred and fifty students. You probably wouldn't get to know any of your teachers.
*Well, you might actually. Because those classes also have small discussion sections. Twice a week, and have no more than twenty students.
*I know. But I've heard that they are usually taught by graduate students. At White Stone College all classes are taught by professors.
*What about Sating? Do you prefer a small town like White Stone? Or a bigger place like the state capital?
*That doesn't matter to me. What I do care about is getting individual attention from the faculty than making friends.
*Look, I've known you for four years now and you seen to be a pretty outgoing person. I don't think you have any trouble making friends at the state university. It sounds to me that you are learning toward White Stone though?
*I am. The only problem is that the White Stone's tuition is really high and I'm not sure I can afford it.
*You could still apply for a student loan or sign up for a work-study program.
*Yeah. I think I'll look into that.

31. Why did the man go to see the woman?
32. What concern does the man have about the state university?
33. What does the man consider to be an advantage of the White Stone College?
34. What is the man likely to do in the near future?

35-39  Conversation between two students.
*Hi, Claire. How does it feel to be back on campus?
*Keach, hi. Well, to tell you the truth, I have mixed feelings.
*Oh, why?
*I have this great summer job that I really hated to leave. I worked at the wild life research center in Maryland.
*That makes sense for a genetic major. What did you do? Clean the cages?
*This is a wild life center, not a zoo. This place breeds endangered species and tries to prepare them for life in the wild.
*You mean the endangered species like the tiger and the panda?
*Well, endangered species, yes. But not tigers or pandas. I was working with whooping cranes and sandtail cranes. It was really neat. I taught the baby crane how to eat and drink, and I help the vet to give medical check-ups.
*I can see why it was hard to leave that job. But how did you teach a bird how to eat and drink?
*We covered ourselves up with clothes and used puppets made out of stuffed cranes to show the baby chicks what to do. Then the chicks copied what the puppets did.
*Clothes? Puppets? Sounds like fun.
*It was. The clothes and puppets are the key tool of this. We all covered ourselves up, the scientists, the vets, the genial stock, everybody. You see, baby cranes will become attached to their care-takers.
*So if the care-taker is a person, the crane will stay in places where people are.
*Yeah. And their chances for survival aren't very good. But by covering ourselves and by using birds puppets the chicks are more likely to seek out other birds rather than people. And their transition to the wild has a better chance of being successful.
*A chance of being successful? Hasn't this been done before?
*It's been done with sandtail cranes and everyone is optimistic about its work with whooping cranes too.
*Yeah. It's exciting, isn't that?

35. Why does the woman say she has a mixed feelings?
36. What was the woman's job?
37. What is the goal of the wild life center?
38. Why does the man mention the tigers and pandas?
39. Why do the staff members cover themselves with clothes as they work?

40 to 42 A lecture in a architectural design course.
In 1871 the first passenger elevators were used in office buildings and allowed architects to build higher than people could comfortably walk. Another innovation was in building technique. In 1885 the steel skeleton was introduced and allowed for the construction of tall building that could withstand high winds. We take for granted some of the other inventions that enabled people to live and work in skyscrapers. For example, few people realized that the telephone was necessary for vertical communication and that flush toilet and vacuum incinerator made waste disposal possible. Now as we entered the age of super skyscraper, some with more than 200 floors, we see the need for even more technological innovations. In the area of heating and cooling systems for example. For all their benefits, these super tall building do cause problems though. For one thing they place enormous train on parking and traffic row in urban areas. But let's leave behind these technical concerns and move on to consider some of the design elements that have come to characterize the age of the skyscraper.

40. What does the professor mainly discuss?
41. What does the professor say about the invention of the elevator?
42. What will the professor probably discuss next?

43 to 46 Talk in an introductory biology class.
Good morning. Let me welcome all the new members of the ski patrol. My name is Brenda Peters and I've been a ski-patroller for nearly three years. After working in offices and restaurants I find this job very satisfying. After all, if you love the outdoors, it's a great job. You won't get rich but you';; get in great shape and you will be able to help people everyday. And for me the best part of the job is giving ski lessons I've made a lot of friends that way. Of course your main responsibilities will involve ensuring the safety of everyone who skis here. All trails have to be checked daily to make sure they are groomed probably. You also will have to be watching out constantly for people who aren't skiing safely, or who may think they are better skiers than they really are. And to help those who are injured, you'll have to know basic first aid. Tomorrow you will begin training in a first aid system that skiers specifically to the outdoors. We pride ourselves in our ability to get people off the mountain quickly and safely. OK, so you are free to explore the slopes for the test of the day. All in all, I think that being a ski patroller is great job I hope you will all feel the same way.

43. What does the speaker mainly discuss?
44. According to the speaker, what is one advantage of working on a ski patrol?
45. What does the speaker say she likes most about giving ski lessons?
46. According to the speaker, what is one of the man responsibilities of ski patroller?

47-50 A lecture given in a geology class.
If you flew over certain parts of Nebraska and Texas by plane, you might notice some large areas appearing as bright green circles many hundreds of feet across. This green is unusual in the high plains area where the climate is very dry. These green patches are the result of a new technique for mining the underground water. In this technique, miners bore deep holes in the ground until they reach a special geological formation called ocheropher. The water which has collected in this ocherophers for hundreds of years in called fossil water or ground water. It pumped up through the bored hole and spray over the land to irrigate the crops. Raising crops such as cotton and wheat, water in this way creates the fertile green areas that contrasts vividly with the natural brown of the plains. Crop yields have increase dramatically. However they've created a serious environmental problem. The problem is that the water is being removed from many ocherophers faster than it can be replenished naturally. Ground water levels have dropped rapidly and it's becoming more difficult and expensive to get this water. In some parts of Texas, water levels in some of the ocherophers have declined cess of using water faster than it can be replaced is wide-spread and serious.

47. What does the speaker mainly discuss?
48. What benefits have resulted from the technique?
49. What is happening to ground water?
50. What does the speaker imply about ground water?
