A correction has been made to the August issue of our National Parks Newsletter. The North Mountain Views Rails to Trails package—combining two nights at the High Point Lodge, a half-day guided tour, one night at the Trail’s End Inn, and two tickets on the Scenic Shores Railroad—was listed incorrectly in the newsletter as $295. The actual price per person for this package is $529 plus tax and is based on double occupancy.
In addition, please note that Lake Zephyr Sports and Culture offer is valid only at the Hidden Cove Resort Hotel. Prices are for two adults, and the package includes breakfast and dinner for three days. Each additional adult with pay $222; for an additional child, the extra cost is $202.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

Dear Ms. Bowman:
You recently received an informational packet concerning the upcoming Association of Financial Consultants conference. I need to clarify the charges for existing members. The cover letter that I enclosed with your conference booklet should have included the sentence, “If you are not AFC member, please submit $35 for your membership.”
As you have already paid this year’s membership dues, you do not need to send the $35 listed on the conference registration form. Please forgive the mistake. When you return your registration form, please write “already a current member” on it. However, you will still need to enclose the $50 conference fee and $275 for your room and banquet meal no later than February 10.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me. The best way is to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, but if necessary, you may also leave me a message at 1-561-555-8286, extension 432, and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.
3. What is the main purpose of the letter?
A. To ask for a payment
B. To explain an error
C. To discuss a conference
D. To answer a question
4. How much does it cost to belong to the AFC?
A. $10 B. $35 C. $50 D. $75
5. How does Mr. Horne prefer to be contacted?
A. By phone B. By fax C. By mail D. By e-mail
1.【答案】C。解析：细节题。本题询问在八月份的通讯稿中出现了什么错误。第一段的最后两行“……was listed incorrectly in the newsletter as $295. The actual price per person for this package is $529 plus tax and is based on double occupancy.”由此可以看出是价格出现了错误，故选C。
2.【答案】B。解析：细节题。本题询问对Lake Zephyr offer设置了什么限制。根据关键词Lake Zephyr定位到原文第二段第一句：In addition, please note that Lake Zephyr Sports and Culture offer is valid only at the Hidden Cove Resort Hotel. 由此可以看出，Lake Zephyr offer只有在Hidden Cove Resort Hotel才有效，与B选项“它只适用于一家宾馆”意思一致，故选B。
3.【答案】B。解析：主旨题。文章的主体是第一、二段，其主要讲的是：原来的cover letter有错误，本应该写清如果你不是AFC会员，请交35美元。因为Suzette Bowman是会员，所以不用交35美元。“Please forgive the mistake”并就这个错误请求Bowman原谅。所以这篇文章的目的是解释一个错误，故选B。
4.【答案】B。解析：细节题。题干问要成为AFC的会员要交多少钱。第一段最后说：If you are not AFC member, please submit $35 for your membership.所以要成为会员需要交35美元，故选B。
5.【答案】D。解析：细节题。题干询问Horne先生希望别人用哪种方式联系他。最后一段第二句说：The best way is to e-mail me at email@example.com可知，最好的联系方式是给他发邮件，所以选D。
