Cambridge First Listening Part Two guessing what goes in the gaps game

Without looking below for now, guess anything you can about the gaps in the exam task that you have been given. You will get one mark for anything that is (probably) true and that no one else has said yet.

Use the hints below to help with the task above. Note that some things are probably not true about any of the gaps in the task that you have (though they might be true in other exam tasks). You can also try to guess exactly what words go in the gaps if you like, although that is obviously much more difficult (and usually impossible).
