1.Why does the student go to see the professor?
A.To ask if she can interview him for her paper
B.To ask permission to extend the length of her paper
C.To ask permission to change the topic of her paper
D.To askfor more time to finish her paper
So the thing is,you know,okay,I'm writing my paper on the history of jazz in New York City...The thing is,I have this idea that might make it better and I was wondering if there's any way I could get an extension.这两句话的信号词“the thing is ”表明了学生找教授的目的是为了延长论文的递交时间。所以答案选D。
2.What can be inferred about the student's work on her paper so far?
A.She received a lot of help on the paper from professional musicians.
B.She has found enough information to complete the paper.
C.She did not start working on the paper early enough.
D.She is having difficulty finding sources for the paper.
学生这两句话表明论文到现在为止进展顺利，并且I have got a lot to say，我已经有了很多要写的内容。所以答案选B。A选项所说的professional musicians 是她在下周会采访到的人，所以A选项的she received应该改成she will receive。C选项和原文意思相反或没提及，“Well,I could write the paper as it is and turn it in on time and it would be fine”就可以将C排除。D选项的错误比较明显，除了时间一切都进展的很顺利。
3.Why does the student want to interview her friend's grandfather?
A.He has written articles about jazz music in New York City.
B.He has recordings of the musicians discussed in the woman's paper.
C.He owned a historic jazz club in New York City.
D.He was a jazz musician during the 1950s.
4.What does the professor ask the student to do on the original due date of the paper?
A.Turn in her first draft
B.Hand in an outline
C.Submit interview questions
D.Confirm that she has scheduled an interview
But just to be fair,why don't you turn in an outline of your paper on the due date?教授让学生在到期日前先把大纲给交了，学生说没问题。所以答案选B。而C选项中的interview questions，教授的原话是Could you have the questions ready then too?你那个时候(下周采访时)能把采访的问题也准备好吗?这里就对应选项C了。
5.Replay: Why does the student say this:
A.To address the professor's concern
B.To explain a change in her approach to her paper
C.To restate the professor's point
D.To request approval of her topic
Professor: All right.Well,that's a pretty broad subject. 好吧，你的这个主题有点大哦。
Student: Well,actually I'm focusing on a specific decade,the 50s. 其实我写的只是50年代的爵士音乐啦。 老师先提出担心，学生就此展开回答，解决老师的担心。 所以答案选A。
