問題次の会話文について、下の問いに答えよ。

Anna telephones her friend, Chizuko, to ask her for help.

Anna : Hi, Chizuko. This is Anna.

Chizuko : Hi, Tomorrow is the day you and your friends are coming to Hakata, right?

Anna : Yes, but I have a little problem.

Chizuko : What’s wrong?

Anna : Well, Moon Suk is coming as planned. But Jin Ah waited until the last minute to buy her ticket. So, when she tried to get a ticket to Shimonoseki, the ship was fully booked.

Chizuko : Oh, no…

Anna : Luckily, she was able to get a ticket to Hakata. The problem is, they’ll arrive at about the same time.

Chizuko : So, you want me to pick up Jim Ah?

Anna : Can you do that?

Chizuko : Sure, I’ll be happy to meet her.

Anna : Great! Then, I’ll meet Moon Suk in Shimonoseki and we’ll drive to Hakata to join you.

Chizuko : What time will Jin Ah arrive?

Anna : At 8 a.m. on the Cosmos Line ferry.

Chizuko : At 8 a.m. No problem. How will we recognize each other?

Anna : Jin Ah will call me from Pusan this evening, so at that time I can let her know that you’ll be meeting her and I’ll tell her what you look like. What do you plan to wear tomorrow?

Chizuko : Hmmm…you know my flowered plants?

Anna : The one with roses?

Chizuko : No, the ones with sunflowers.

Anna : They’re really loose, right?

Chizuko : No. Tight.

Anna : On, yeah. You wore them last month when we went shopping in Tenjin.

Chizuko : Right. I’ll wear those. I’ll also have on a straw hat with a wide brim.

Anna : Does it have any decoration it?

Chizuko : Yes. It has a plain ribbon tied around it. Also I’ll be carrying a magazine.

Anna : Great! She can’t miss you. Thanks a million. Shall we all meet at the Sakura Hotel tomorrow around 11 a.m.? The four of us can have lunch together.

Chizuko : Sounds good. Drive safely.

Anna : I will. See you soon!

問1
Why is Jin Ah sailing to a different destination?

1. The ticket to Hakata was cheaper than the other one.
2. She missed the ferry that sailed to her original destination.
3. The ferry that was supposed to go to Shimonoseki was cancelled.
4. The tickets for her original destination were sold out.

【解説】

Why is Jin Ah sailing to a different destination?
「Jin Ah はなぜ異なった目的地に向かっていますか?」

Jin Ah の名前は Anna の3回目の発言の中に出てくきます。その周辺に解答のヒントがあると考えられますね。

選択肢は、こうなっています。

1. The ticket to Hakata was cheaper than the other one.
「博多へのチケットはもう片方より安かった」
2. She missed the ferry that sailed to her original destination.
「彼女は彼女の元の目的地に向けて出帆したフェリーに乗り遅れた」
3. The ferry that was supposed to go to Shimonoseki was cancelled.
「下関に行くべきであったフェリーは、キャンセルされた」
4. The tickets for her original destination were sold out.
「彼女の元の目的地のチケットは売り切れていた」

本文に、こうあります。

when she tried to get a ticket to Shimonoseki, the ship was fully booked.
彼女が下関へのチケットを入手しようとしたとき、その船は完全に予約でいっぱいだった

ということで正解は 4. とわかります。

book が「本」ではなく「予約する」という意味になるのは、先ほどのセンター試験第4問B「広告」においてもそうでしたが、しばしば狙われますね。

【正解】4

問2
Chizuko を示す絵として最も適当なものを、次の1~6のうちから1つ選べ。

【解説】

選択肢の絵を見て気づくところを書き出しておきましょう。服装にセンスがないとかいうのは、なしで・・・
・ズボンの柄
・帽子のリボン
・ズボンの太さ

まずは、このやりとりからですが、

Anna : The one with roses?

Chizuko : No, the ones with sunflowers.

バラではなく、ヒマワリだと言っているのだから、選択肢の1~3を消すことができますね。
次に

Anna : They’re really loose, right?

Chizuko : No. Tight.

ゆるいズボンではなく、ぴっちりとした (タイトな) ズボンということで、選択肢の 4. を消すことができます。
最後に、帽子の話をしていて

Anna : Does it have any decoration it?

Chizuko : Yes. It has a plain ribbon tied around it. Also I’ll be carrying a magazine.

模様のないリボンが結ばれている、ということで正解は 5. とわかりました。

【正解】5
