    NARRATOR:Listen to a conversation between a student and a clerk in the bookstore.

    MALE STUDENT:Hi, can you tell me where to find New Kind of Science by ah, by Steven Wolfram…

    FEMALE CLERK:OK.

    MALE STUDENT:…I, ah, couldn’t find it.

    FEMALE CLERK:OK, let me look it up on the computer for you. Who did you say the author was?

    MALE STUDENT:Um, it’s Steven Wolfram.

    FEMALE CLERK:OK, let’s see… no, it’s not coming up… mh, I’m not seeing it…

    MALE STUDENT:Um…

    FEMALE CLERK:This is for a class here at the university, right?

    MALE STUDENT:Yeah, it’s assigned reading for a class I’m, I’m taking.

    FEMALE CLERK:It’s for this semester, right? You’re not buying it in advance for next year or anything…

    MALE STUDENT:No no, it’s for a class I’m taking now…

    FEMALE CLERK:Hmmm…

    MALE STUDENT:Oh, oh, you know what? It’s for a graduate class. Would that maybe make a difference? I mean, I’m an undergrad, but I’m just, I’m just taking this one class in the graduate department, so …

    FEMALE CLERK:No, no, I don’t think that’s it. That shouldn’t make any difference, but, mh, let me see… maybe it’s just… it could be that whoever entered it misspelled the title or the author’s name, so I can’t find it on the computer, and I can’t tell if it’s sold out.But if it is sold out, we would probably be getting a new shipment within about a week or so.

    MALE STUDENT:[disappointed]OK, well I was hoping to get it sooner, ’cause like we already have assignments and, you know. I mean I guess I could get it from the library…

    FEMALE CLERK:Right, of course.… But I’m trying to check; if we’ve ordered more, then that backorder information should be in the computer too.Let’s see…[typing] backorder-Wolfram-Steven… no… I’m still not seeing it.I’m sorry, we just don’t seem to carry it.

    MALE STUDENT:Uh-huh.

    FEMALE CLERK:This is odd though. What is… what’s your professor’s name? I could try searching for his or her classes in the database, that might help.

    MALE STUDENT:Um, OK, it’s Professor Kayne.

    FEMALE CLERK:[spelling]K-A-N-E?

    MALE STUDENT:No, it’s Professor Kayne, K-A-Y-N-E. He’s in the computer science department.

    FEMALE CLERK:[realizing]Oh! It’s for a computer science course, is it?

    MALE STUDENT:Yeah…?

    FEMALE CLERK:Ah-ha! That must be it. Computer science books are sold across the street in the computer store.

    MALE STUDENT:Ooh… are there signs up anywhere?

    FEMALE CLERK:I don’t know.

    MALE STUDENT:May be they should put some up… could’ve saved us both some time[bemused annoyance, not directed at the woman].

    FEMALE CLERK:Yeah, well anyway, I’ll bet that’s the problem. Check across the street.I’ll bet they have it, but if not, come back and I’ll help you find it somewhere else; I can call around to see if other bookstores might have it. OK?

    MALE STUDENT:OK, thanks a lot! Bye.

    FEMALE CLERK:Bye.

  • 旁白:请听下面一段学生与店员在书店中的对话。

    学生:你好,您能告诉我在哪里能找到《新兴科学》吗?是斯黛芬·沃尔夫莱曼写的。

    店员:好的。

    学生:呃,我找不到这本书。

    店员:好的,我在电脑里查询一下。你刚刚说作者是谁?

    学生:斯黛芬·沃尔夫莱曼。

    店员:好的,我们看一下,恩,没有显示…呃,我没有看到。

    学生:额...

    店员:你买这书是为了我们大学的课程,是吗?

    学生:是的,这是我上的一门课的指定参考书目。

    店员:是为了这个学期,是吧?你不是提前为下学期买的吧?

    学生:不,不。是为我现在上的课买的。

    店员:嗯...

    学生:你知道么?这是一门研究生的课程。会不会是这个原因呢?我的意思是我是本科生,但我在研究生部上这一门课,所以…

    店员:不,我想不是。这没什么关系。但是,恩…让我看看…有可能是..大概是输入条目的人将题目或作者的名字拼错了,所以我现在在电脑上找不到,也无法告诉你这本书是不是卖光了。但是如果卖光了的话,我们会在一个星期左右收到新货的。

    学生:哦,但是我希望能早点买到,因为作业已经布置给我们了,你知道的,我想我可以从图书馆借到这本书。

    店员:也是,但是我正试着查询,如果我们增订了的话,在电脑里应该能查到订购的信息。让我看看啊,延交订单…沃尔福莱曼,史黛芬…不,我没有查到。不好意思,看来我们这里没有。

    学生:嗯…

    店员:这太奇怪了。你们教授叫什么名字?我可以试着在数据库中查询一下他的课程,可能会有帮助。

    学生:恩。好的!是凯恩教授。

    店员:K-A-N-E?

    学生:不对,是凯恩教授。K-A-Y-N-E。他在计算机科学系。

    店员:哦,是计算机科学的教材,是吧?

    学生:是的...?

    店员:哦,原来是这样。计算机科学类的图书在对面的计算机书店里可以买到。

    学生:噢...那里有什么提示吗?

    店员:我不知道。

    学生:或许他们应该做一些提示,这样就能为我们节省不少时间了。

    店员:是啊,我也认为是这样。你去对面看看吧。我相信那里一定有。如果没有,你可以再回来,我们帮你从其他地方找一下。我可以打听一下其他的书店,他们说不定会有。好吗?

    学生:好的,谢谢你。再见。

    店员:再见。

    选项分析

    开头先说找不到书,然后通过作者,教授,课程各方面在电脑里找,还是找不到,然后clerk 说 we just don't seem to carry it。后来发现不是在这个书店

    B选项即为整篇文章的全文归纳总结,是对全文主旨最准确的概括
