Directions:In this section, you will hear two long conversations. At the end of each conversation, you will hear four questions. Both the conversation and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a question, you must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A）, B）, C）and D）. Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 1 with a single line through the centre.
M: Has Jimmy been coming in lately?
W:No, I haven’t seen him around. Why? Has he been causing any trouble?
M:Not that I know of. But I need to see him, because my friends and I lent him some money last month. And we haven’t heard from him since.  I heard he comes here a lot. So I thought I’d come in and check with you.
W:Well, that’s funny. Some other fellow came in asking for Jimmy just yesterday, a real nervous, pushy type of fellow,  saying he needed Jimmy for some study project they were working on. But I can’t quite remember what it was all about. Is this a lot of money we’re talking about here?
M:No, just 60 pounds between the three of us, but still, a bit too much to just let go.  He told us he’d got into an accident. Nothing serious, mind you, but he damaged someone’s car and wanted to get some money together to make up for the damage he’d caused.
W:Hmm. Isn’t that sort of thing usually covered by insurance? And then if he still wanted to give money as some sort of apology or something, he probably shouldn’t have to go around borrowing it from people.
M:You think Jimmy is just making it all up? See, I did think it was a bit weird for him to be asking for money for that sort of thing. And his story was a bit vague to begin with. But I thought maybe  he doesn’t want his parents to know about what happened. So he’d rather come to us and keep things quiet. Anyway, Jimmy’s a good guy, so we don’t make a fuss about it.
男：  吉米最近来过吗？
Questions 8 to 11 are based on the conversation you have just heard.
W:Hi, Max. How are you? Listen,  I want to ask you about ordering shopping online. I’ve never done it before and I know that you’ve been doing it for ages.
M:Sure, I love getting my shopping delivered. It makes life so much simpler—no carrying heavy shopping bags in the rain,  or trying to park the car on those huge supermarket car parks, then not being able to find it again after you come out of the shops.
W:But there must be some problems.  I mean, how do you know that you won’t get bad fruit or that the eggs won’t be broken?
M:Oh, come on. The food is exactly the same as the stuff you buy in a conventional shop. They aren’t going to deliver you food that is out of date. And if you get a broken egg, well, that could happen in a conventional shop, too. If anything is really wrong, you can just take photographs of the damage, and they will give you the money back or replace the item.
W:How about delivery fees? Is it not more expensive to get everything delivered?
M: I actually found that it was cheaper for me, as I live quite far away from my local supermarket. So with the deliveries, I am actually saving on petrol.
W:I never thought of that. If you aren’t driving your own car, then you are saving on fuel. Right, you’ve convinced me. I’m going to go on the computer now and give it a try. So, which supermarket do you think is the best to order from?
M:Oh, no, that’s definitely up to you. Otherwise, we’ll be here all day.
女：嗨，马克斯。你好吗？听着，  我想问问你关于在网上下单购物的事情。我以前从没在网上买过东西，我知道你已经网购很多年了。
男： 当然，我喜欢送货上门。网上购物让生活变得简单多了—不用在雨中拎着沉重的购物袋，  或者费力把车停在那些大型超市的停车场里，然后等你从商店出来后就找不到车了。
男：  实际上我发现对我来说网购会更便宜一些，因为我住的地方离当地的超市很远。所以有了送货到家的服务，我实际上节省了汽油的费用。
