Question 1 of 10

beginning of content:

In this part of the test you will hear several short selections. They will not be printed in your test book. You will hear them only once. Therefore, you must listen very carefully. You will read one or two short questions about what was said. Another speaker will read the questions for you. Each question will be followed by four choices market (A), (B), (C), and (D). The choice are not printed. You will hear them once. Select the best answer.

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

Warum kann Philipp helfen?

Correct Answer: 

The question asks why Philipp can help. When the friend asks Philipp “...kennst du dich mit Autos aus?” (Do you know anything about cars?), he replies, “Na, so einigermaβen” (Well, a little bit). Therefore, (B) Er weiβ über Autos Bescheid (He knows about cars) is the best answer. (A) Er hat einen Gebrauchtwagen indicates that he owns a used car himself, (C) Er hat eine Werkstatt, that he has a service shop, and (D) Er ist selbst Autohändler, that he himself is a car salesman. The dialogue does not suggest any of these, so these choices are incorrect.
