BCA, he spoke too fast!
Am I right?

1st time. before listening 1st we should go through the question. so that would be easy to answer. its a small speech so its easy. but, sometimes its risk to remember the long conversation or speech.

B C A is my answer

Hi Simon

On of the vexing problems of the IELTS Listening test, especially multiple choice question is that students always do not have enough time to read whole questions and options...Just like these questions that you provided. How could we deal with the long sentences and unknown vocabularies? Also, could you teach us how to use the limited time to find the key words? Honestly, many IELTS teachers always say: Find the Key words! Find the Key words! Find the Key words!! But HOW? What kind of words can be the key point? Could you specifically tell us more about this?

With my best regards

Hi
My answer : B- C- B

Thank you.

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

NOTE:
The key is to spend time reading the questions carefully before you start listening. Underline words in the questions that you think you need to listen for. It's true that the speaker spoke really quickly, but if you prepared the questions well before listening, I think you could get the answers the first time.

PS. I made this exercise myself - they don't speak as quickly in real test recordings, so well done if you got the answers right!

tapescript
Turns out more than 10% people, about 10% percent are left handed. If both parents are right handed, there's about 2% chance, your child gonna be lefty. If one parent is left handed, it's about 17%, and both parents lefties, there's about 50 percent chance your child is also gonna be left handed with guys being twice as often left handed girls.

So, how did you tell what your child going to be? When your baby’s about 6 month of age, he or she may start reach with the right hand, but very quickly bring out their left hand, and it’s not of ....... baby of two years of age that we can really determine of hand preference.

I have listened to it for 4 times.

He speaks too fast and I missed information so I had to re-listen.

I think I did not focus fully on the test.

My 2 cents:
This is an expensive GAME called 'Are you able to remember lots of information'. It doesn't really matter if they speak slowly or quickly.

There were 13 pieces of information mixed up really well, left-handedness, right-handedness, parents, percents, comparison between males and females (percent again) and last but not least, children and their preference.

B C A

What is the probability of right-handed parents having a left-handed child?

B) about 2%.

What comparison is made between males and females?

C) Males are twice as likely to be left-handed.

A child's handedness can be determined for certain

A) when the child reaches two years of age.
