Salesman: How can I help you, sir?


Bob: Hi, I am interested in renting an apartment in your building. Can you show

me around inside?


Salesman: Sure, my pleasure. Do you know what kind of apartment you are looking for?


Bob: I’m thinking of something for my best friend and I. The apartment doesn’t

have to be too big, just something comfortable for the two of us. I am looking

for a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a bathroom. Just something simple.


Salesman: OK, well, let me show you what we have to offer. We divide our apartments

into 3 categories. There are standard apartments, upgraded standard apart-

ments, and luxury apartments. Please follow me This apartment just went

up for rent yesterday. The old tenants moved into a larger one. This apart-

ment is What I call the standard apartment. It’s small, but has everything you

need. The kitchen comes with a refrigerator, an oven, and a stove. There is

one bathroom with a shower, but no bathtub. The rooms are a good size, and

both have their own closets. The living room has enough space for a couch.

We will provide a television for you. These apartments are very popular with

students, because they are affordable and practical. Right now, we are renting

these out for only $1,000 a month (Q1).


Bob: I think this is a little bit on the small side. There is no space for a dining

table or even for an extra desk. We will both need room to study. If there are

guests over, we hope to be able to have a dining table big enough for at least

4 people. Do you have anything slightly larger? Maybe just an apartment with

a bigger living room.


Salesman: Well, let us take a loolc Right now we also have an opening for a luxury

apartment. This apartment is larger. It has 3 bedrooms, and all 3 are larger

than the last one, and there are 2 bathrooms, and all have bathtubs (Q2&3).

The kitchen is also larger and comes with an additional dishwasher and

freezer. The living space has plenty of space for a dining room.


Bob: How much is the rent on these apartments?


Salesman: These are more expensive, usually in the $2,500 range. Don’t forget that there

is an additional bedroom, so you could find another roommate to lower the cost.


Bob: Hmm, I think that is a little bit on the expensive side. We don’t really have

the time to find another roommate, so it is probably better to stick with the

2-bedroom places. Is there anything between these two?


Salesman: Come with me I can show you this apartment right now, but there are

people living in it. There are no more of these kinds of apartments available

at this moment, but if you decide that you like it, I can put you on the waiting

list, and as soon as we have Openings, you will be contacted.


Bob: Sure, let’s take a look.


Salesman: This is the upgraded standard apartment. As you can see, it is larger than the

other 2-bedroom apartment. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one in

each room (Q4). The living room comes with a television, but no furniture.

The kitchen is around the same size as the other smaller apartment. The basic

difference is the additional bathroom and larger living room. These rent for

around 1,400 dollars (Q5).
