M: Mr. Brown asked me to tell you that he is sorry he can’t come to meet you in person. He is really too busy to make the trip.
W: That’s Okay. I’m glad you’ve come in his place.
Q: What do we learn from the conversation?
A) The man is late for the trip because he is busy.
B) The woman is glad to meet Mr. Brown in person.
C) The man is meeting the woman on behalf of Mr. Brown.
D) The woman feels sorry that Mr. Brown is unable to come.
【解析】 对话中“he can’t come to meet you”、“you’ve come in his place”和答案C中“on behalf of …”为同义表达方式，都表示替某人去见某人。
M: I’m worried about those classes I missed when I was sick.
W: I’ll try to bring you up to date on what we’ve done.
Q: What does the woman mean?
A) She’s bought the man a pair of glasses today.
B) She will help the man to catch up.
C) She is worried about the man’s health.
D) She has bought the man an up-to-date map.
【解析】 原文中的“bring you up to date”和答案B的“help the man to catch up”都表示“帮某人赶上……”，均为同义转述。A选项的glasses是对原文的classes在读音上的干扰；C、D都是误解。
