Problems with negative form in Listening TOEFL Test

Negative expressions are very common in Listening Part A. The most common kind of correct response to a negative statement is a positive statement containing a word with an opposite meaning.


On the recording, you hear:

(woman)    : Did you get a lot of work done at the library today?
(man)         : I couldn’t. It wasn’t very quiet there.
(narrator)    : What does the man mean?

In your test book, you read:

(A) The library was noisy
(B) He got a lot done.
(C) He couldn’t quite get to the library today.
(D) The library’s a good place to work because it’s quiet.

The correct answer is answer (A). If it was not quiet in the library, this means that it was noisy. Notice that the correct answer uses noisy, the opposite of quiet.

For further explaination and exercise of negative,  skill 2: negative.
