Location Of Pysics Class
Student: Excuse me, I’m supposed to be having my physics class in the science building, but no one’s in the classroom. Could you tell me where the class is? Physics 403 — has it been moved?
Receptionist: Well, there’s a room assignment sheet on the bulletin board outside this office.
Student: Yeah, I know, but my class isn’t listed there. There must be some kind of mistake or something. Could you look it up, please?
Receptionist: Hmmm...ok, let me check on the computer. It’s physics, right? Wait, did you say physics 403?
Receptionist: Er…I’m sorry, but it says here that it was cancelled. You should have got note letter from the registrar’s office about this.
Student: What? I’ve never got it.
Receptionist: Are you sure? ‘Cause it says on the computer that the letter was sent out to students a week ago.
Student: Really? I should have got it by now. I wonder if I threw it away with all the junk mail by mistake.
Receptionist: Well, it does happen. Er… let me check something. What’s your name?
Student: Woodhouse, Laura Woodhouse.
Receptionist: Ok, hmmm…Woodhouse, let me see… ah, it says here we sent it to your apartment on er… Center Street.
Student: Oh, that’s my old apartment. I moved out of there a little while ago.
Receptionist: Well, and I suppose you haven’t changed your mailing address at the administration office. Well that would explain it.
Student: Yeah, I guess that’s it. But how can they cancel the class after offering it. If I’d known this was going to happen, I would have taken it last semester.
Receptionist: I know, it’s really inconvenient for you, I understand that, but er… if we don’t have enough students signed up for the course, the college can’t offer it. You know, it’s a practical issue, like we can’t have an instructor when there’re only a few students in the class. You see what I mean?
Student: I guess, but now I don’t know what course I should take instead.
Receptionist: Ok, let’s see. Do you have any courses you’re going to take next semester? If you do, you might want to take them now and sign up for physics 403 next semester.
Student: Yeah, I guess I could do that. I just hope it won't be cancelled again. Do you know how many people have to be enrolled in order to keep a class from being cancelled?
Receptionist: Well, it depends on the class, but for that class, you have to have er… let’s see, usually it’d be at least ten people, but since it was cancelled this semester, they might even do it with less. But do you know what you should do? Give the physics department a call a couple of weeks before the semester starts. They’ll be able to tell you if they’re planning to go through with it. It's their decision, actually.
Student: Oh, ok, I will do that. Thanks for the info.
Receptionist: No problem. Sorry about the class. Oh, why don’t you to go change a mail address now. It only takes a minute.
Student: Oh, oh, sure, I will do that right way.

对应原文：0'7"-0'19"Excuse me, I’m supposed to be having my physics class in the science building, but no one’s in the classroom. Could you tell me where the class is? Physics 403 — has it been moved?
解析：这个疑问句清晰的体现了学生来咨询的意图，就是为了find out 她的物理课是在哪里上，这个B选项直接贴合。C选项是一个无关选项，因为从句中明显体现出她已经到过Science building且发现无人在教室所以可以最先排除。 显然这时她还不知道物理课是被cancle了所以D排除，这时她也完全没有意识到学校的联络没有更新地址，这是之后的内容，因此A排除。
Ok, hmmm…Woodhouse, let me see… ah, it says here we sent it to your apartment on er… Center Street.
Oh, that’s my old apartment. I moved out of there a little while ago.
解析：在这两句对话中清晰的体现出letter被send到了old apartment也就是答案中的old mailing address。 A.在对话中有提及：I wonder if I threw it away with all the junk mail by mistake. 但是从 wonder if中体现出这只是猜测而非事实。 B，D两个选项都是未提及。只是从主观上有可能成为没有收到信件的可能原因但与对话无关。
对应原文：1'34"-1'43"I know, it’s really inconvenient for you, I understand that, but er… if we don’t have enough students signed up for the course, the college can’t offer it.
解析：从这一组问答中明确指出了问题中的题干，为何要cancel class 而工作人员的回答也是十分直截了当，就是don’t have enough students C，D为无关选项，那么peofessor有提到，但并不是因为老师的问题You know, it’s a practical issue, like we can’t have an instructor when there’re only a few students in the class. 而是学校不会把师资一次只给几名学生上课，依然是学生人数的问题。
对应原文：2'24"-2'35"But do you know what you should do? Give the physics department a call a couple of weeks before the semester starts. They’ll be able to tell you if they’re planning to go through with it. It's their decision, actually.
解析：以But开头的这个问句就是提示作用，告诉我们这个工作人员即将告诉这个student该怎么解决这个问题。A， B, C选项都是未提及。只提到要这个student修改地址而不是 class location。
对应原文：0'18"-0'23"Well, there’s a room assignment sheet on the bulletin board outside this office.
解析：一开始工作人员并不知道student的具体情况只是以为她找不到教室，那么他说Well, there’s a room assignment sheet on the bulletin board outside this office. 就是告诉这个学生你可以自己去这个board上看也就是D选项的意思。A，显然是错误选项，在查询电脑前，他并不知道这个课程的情况。B,C原文中未提及。
