Translation for Reference :

A realtor and a woman are talking by phone.

Realtor: The fax that I just have sent to you has 4 sheets, I’ve written the number on it to make it easy to understand.

Woman: Uhm… I would like to ask you. Why is the number 1 apartment cheap although it is near the train station?

Realtor: Well, as you can see, it’s quite old. Even if it is old … you can still be able to live comfortably. The 2nd and 4th apartments are much smaller than the 1st, but as it is new construction, the rent is still high. The second is 1 minute from the station, so it’s really convenient. I also recommend the third one. Although it is old, it’s has been renovated so it will be beautiful like a new construction. The rent is also cheap.

Woman: But it takes 15 minutes to the station. If not a place near the station, it can’t be. I don’t have a big budget, and if it can be said that I can live comfortably…then … this, let me see it once ….

Question: Which apartment does the woman want to see?

  1. The first apartment
  2. The second apartment
  3. The third apartment
  4. The 4th apartment

2. Choosing the answer:

Answer 1.1番のマンション

Basing on the word key, we know that the main content of the lesson is about renting. We get the requirements of women as follows:

駅から近いところでないと : If not a place near the station, it can’t be  =  駅から近い : near the station

予算もあまりないし : there is not much budget = 家賃が安い : cheap

十分に住める: able to live comfortably

According to the above requirements, the most suitable apartment is the first apartment.

Therefore, answer is 1. 1番のマンション
