      I feel sorry for you.

    Correct Answer
    A. I'm sorry it was late.
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "I'm sorry it was late." This is the correct answer because it acknowledges the fact that the payment was late and expresses remorse for the delay. The phrase "I'm sorry" indicates that the person responsible for the payment is apologizing for the lateness, taking ownership of the mistake. This response shows empathy and understanding towards the recipient of the payment, acknowledging that the delay may have caused inconvenience or frustration.

    As you mentioned in your e-mail of July 5, you were indeed billed for a purchase you had not made.

    • A.

    • B.

      That's how I feel.

    Correct Answer
    A. That's what I thought.
    Explanation
    The phrase "That's what I thought" is the appropriate response in this context because it acknowledges the previous statement made in the email. The person who sent the email is confirming that they were correct in their assumption that the recipient had been mistakenly billed for a purchase they didn't make. It implies that the sender had suspected this to be the case and their assumption was proven true.

      That's enough.

    Correct Answer
    A. That'll be great.
    Explanation
    The phrase "That'll be great" is the appropriate response because it shows enthusiasm and gratitude towards the offer of receiving the names and addresses of dealers in the area. It indicates a positive attitude and willingness to accept the information, suggesting that the person is interested in connecting with the dealers.

    • B.

      Yes, that's all.

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    We've decided to make a $2,000 contribution to your environmental NGO.

    • A.

      Your thoughtfulness is deeply appreciated.

    • B.

      I deeply appreciate your thoughts.

    Correct Answer
    A. Your thoughtfulness is deeply appreciated.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Your thoughtfulness is deeply appreciated" because the statement expresses gratitude and acknowledges the value of the contribution made to the environmental NGO. The phrase "deeply appreciated" emphasizes the level of gratitude felt towards the person or organization making the contribution. The other statement, "I deeply appreciate your thoughts," does not specifically mention the contribution or the environmental NGO, making it less relevant in this context.
