According to the university official, students will no longer be allowed to attach anything to the front of the building beginning next semester because the posters on the wall make the building unattractive and posters will be displayed in the dining hall. However, in the conversation, the girl thinks it is too bad about the new policy. Firstly, the posters there make the basic square building with gray concrete walls artistic and colorful. It also gives the building character and personality. Secondly, the stuff on the wall is always changing and it is cool. Besides, not everybody eats at the dining hall, so the posters in the dining hall is meaningless.
Many animals have defense mechanisms that help protect them from predators. In some cases, these animals have distinct coloring that signals predators of the presence of such defenses. This type of coloring is called warning coloration. If a predator does not recognize the meaning of this coloration and attacks, it may suffer significant discomfort or injury when its would-be prey employs its defense mechanism. As a result, the predator learns to associate the warning coloration with negative consequences, and will from that point forward avoid attacking animals that have that coloration.
题目：Explain how the professor’s example from the lecture illustrates warning coloration.
高分词汇：refer to, illustrate, run from…, produce, prepare, back off, leave…alone, recall.
阅读：warning coloration, animals, signal predators, defense.
听力：skunk, white stripe, bushy tail, gland, terrible, smelling liquid, attack, spray, recall, stay far away.
Warning coloration refers to a type of coloring that animals have to signal predators of the presence of defenses. In the lecture, the professor uses skunk as an example to illustrate this term. Skunks have a big white stripe that runs from the top of the head down their back and along the big bushy tail. The special glands under their tail can produce a terrible, smelling liquid. When a wolf is preparing to attack a skunk, the skunk lifts its tail and sprays the wolf. So the wolf backs off and leaves the skunk alone. From then on, whenever the wolf sees the skunk, it will recall the terrible smell and stay far away from it.

Briefly summarize the problem the speakers arediscussing. Then state which of the two solutionsfrom the conversation you would recommend.Explain the reasons for your recommendation.
The man plans to take part in a special class meeting tomorrow night to view a film and have a discussion after that but he is supposed to have dinner at the dinner hall with his cousin. In the conversation, they talk about two possible solutions. The first solution is that the woman offers to eat at the dining hall with his cousin and some of her friends. But the man says his cousin is shy and he might be uncomfortable with people he doesn’t know. The second solution is that the man just skips the film and has dinner with his cousin as planned and rent the film and watch it later. However, he will miss the discussion. Personally, I recommend the man choose the first solution because in that way, his cousin can still visit the campus and the man can watch the film and participate in the discussion. I believe his cousin will understand him.
托福口语TPO46 Task6(听力+题目):Why we may remember some things better than others
When we think about the past, we try to rememberthe past; we remember something better thanothers. Why is that? Well there're few differentexplanations. One explanation is that we remembersomething better if we already have some previousknowledge about it. Some previous understandingof it. For example, let's say you're going to go aclassical music concert. If you don't know anything about classical music before you go to theconcert, you probably won't remember any details of the concert later on. For examplesomebody asked you about the concert a year later, you probably won't remember what piecesthe orchestra played; what order they play them and so on. On the other hand, if you alreadyknow a lot about classical music before you go to the concert, for example if you can studyingand playing classical music for many years is probably going to be much easier for you to recallthe details of the concert later on. Another explanation is that we remember better whenthere's something unusual or different about what we trying to remember. For example let'ssee you in a class at university. A big class with over a hundred students in it. A year later, which of those hundreds students are you mostly like to remember, probably the ones who wereunusual or different in some way. Maybe a man who was exceptionally tall or a woman whowas exceptionally intelligent. The fact the students were somehow different from the otherstudents would make them easier to remember.
题目：Using points and examples from the lecture, give two explanations for why we may remember some things better than others.
In the lecture, the professor talks about a psychology phenomenon that when we think about or try to remember the past, we remember some things better than others and illustrates two explanations for this.
One explanation is that we remember something better if we already have some previous knowledge about or understanding of it. For example, if you don’t know anything about classical music before going to the concert, you probably won’t remember many details of the concert later on. On the contrary, if you already know a lot or you’ve been studying and playing classic music for many years, it’s probably going to be easier to recall the details later on.
Another explanation is that we remember better when there’s something unusual or different about what we are trying to remember. For example, you will probably only remember the ones who were unusual or different in a big class with over a hundred students a year later.
