You will hear a conversation between two people. You will see three questions on each conversation and four possible answers. Choose the best answer to each question.

1. Woman: I'm so sorry I'm late. The bus was delayed by the bad weather.

Man: You should take the subway to work like I do. It's faster and the weather doesn't affect it.

Woman: That wouldn't work for me. The subway station is too far from my house, but the stop is just a two-minute walk.

Man : The bus fare is cheaper, too isn't it? You pay just $2.50 a ride and I pay $1.50 more than that for the subway.



Why is the woman late?
