SAMPLE ANSWER

1. What are a female student and a male studednt talking about?

A female and a male student are talking about a problem the female student is facing.

2. What is a problem?

The problem is that she got an expensive parking ticket in front of her dormitory when she carried in some sports equipment.

3. What is the first solution the man offer?

The first solution is to contact the campus police and explain her situation to get her ticket dropped or reduced.

4. What is the second solution

The second solution is to accept the ticket and pay the fine.

6. Which solution do you agree with?

I agree with the second solution.

7. Why do you agree with the solution?

Because the woman is already behind in her history class. if she skips to go see the campus police, she may fall too far behind in her class. The ticket might be expensive, but I think she should just pay it anyway. Skipping class is just not worth the risk of falling further behind in her class.

SAMPLE ANSWER

A professor is talking about vicariouos emotionalresponding, the topic mentioned in the reading passage.
According to the readong passage, vicarious emotional responding is the way we react to another person’s emotional state.
Two important type of responses are empathy and symphathy.
The professor gives real-life examples of children respoding to emotions.
First, the reading passage introduces empathy.
The professor explains that a baby who cries when she hears another baby crying is an example of a baby responding with empathy.
The second idea from the reading passage is that sympathy is feeling sorry for another person.
The professor illustrates sympathy with the example of a child who gives a teddy bear ti soothe his crying mother.
Both the empathetic babies and the sympathetic child are example of vicariouos emotionalresponding.
