Explanation of Answers1. Where does this conversation most likely take place?
A. at a movie theater
Correct Answer (D). From the vocabulary used in the conversation, we can determine that the action takes place in a video rental shop. It should be pointed out, however, that video can be rented or checked out at supermarkets and libraries in the United States.
2. How much do newly released movies cost to rent?
Correct Answer (B). "New releases are $3.50, and all other movies are $2.00."
3. How many movies did the man rent based on the information given?
Correct Answer (A). The man pays $7.50 for the movies he rents. If new releases are $3.50 each and older movies are $2.00, then he probably rented two older movies for $4.00 and one new release for $3.50.
4. On what day does this conversation take place?
A. on Tuesday
Correct Answer (A). Since the store employee tells the man the videos are due back the day after tomorrow on Thursday, it must be Tuesday in the conversation.
5. What would be the late fee for an older movie three days overdue?
