STRATEGY A. Identify the type of question (information or function) as you listen to it. B. Determine what information or function the question is asking about. C. Evaluate each response. DON’T MAKE A CARELESS DECISION ! The choices in Part II often consist of colloquial or incomplete sentences. For example, the correct answer to the question “Where did you see Bill?”, might be “When I went to the football game yesterday.”, or “On the bus.” The answer to a Yes/No question is usually not a simple “Yes” or “No”. For example, the correct answer to question “Would you like a cup of tea?” could be “Sure.”, “That sounds good.”, or “If it’s not too much trouble.” INITIAL ACTIVITY Practice distinguishing between information and function questions “What time is Bill coming to the party?” Is it: an information question? Or a function question?
