Question 5 of 10

beginning of content:

In this part of the test you will hear several short selections. A tone will announce each new selection. The selections will not be printed in your test booklet and will be heard only once. At the end of each selection, you will be asked one or two questions about what was said, each followed by three possible answers, (A), (B), and (C). The answers are not printed in your test booklet on the actual test. You will hear them only once. Select the best answer.

The script you see here is provided as supplemental information, but would not be available in an actual test.

(Man) Regarde cette voiture rouge. Qu'est-ce qu'elle est belle!
(Woman) Moi, je préfère la noire.
(Man) Ah bon? Pourquoi?
(Woman) Parce qu'elle ne consomme pas autant d'essence
(Man) Oui, mais elle n'est pas aussi rapide.
(Woman) D'accord, mais elle est bien moins chère!

Que savons-nous de cet homme et de cette femme?

(A) Ils viennent d'acheter une voiture.
(B) Ils aiment les voitures de luxe.
(C) Ils ont des opinions différentes.

Select an Answer

A

Correct Answer: 
No

B

Correct Answer: 
No

C

Correct Answer: 
Yes

The question asks what we know about the man and the woman. The man says that he likes the red car, while the woman prefers the black one. Since the two people have differing opinions, the correct answer is (C) Ils ont des opinions différentes. (A) Ils viennent d'acheter une voiture ("They just bought a car") and (B) Ils aiment des voitures de luxe ("They like luxury cars") are incorrect because the dialogue does not indicate that either one has just bought a car, and while the man likes the less economical, faster red car, the woman prefers the less expensive, more economical black one.
