  I have chronic pain and at times this is severe, but this is managed with opiates. I know the general public has a very perverted view of opiates because they think street addiction, heroin, drug smugglers. However, if prescribed correctly by doctors in the right dose for your height and weight and you manage it well yourself, I haven't increased my dose of 80 milligrams of morphine in the last 18 years. So that's a fairly good illustration, that no you don't double it every ten minutes the way the general public think. And also it's very well looked after by the government. I have to present myself to my GPs who all get to know me very well every 30 days, and they have to phone to Canberra to have authorization, and I get my monthly dose of opiates to keep me going till the next lot.
 
Answers
Question: What is the main idea that the speaker is trying to convey in her comments?
 
Incorrect: The dose of opiates needed to treat chronic pain is usually 80 milligrams.
Explanation: This response is incorrect because the speaker states that the dose of opiates needed varies with height and weight.
 
Incorrect: The rate of morphine addiction has not increased over the past 18 years.
Explanation: This response is incorrect. The speaker has not increased her morphine dose in 18 years.
 
Correct: Governments can play a key role in chronic pain management.
Explanation: This response is correct because the details in the recording support this idea. The speaker also states that her opiate use is “very well looked after by the government.”
 
Incorrect: Authorization for the prescription of opiates is required every thirty days.
Explanation: This response is incorrect because this detail is a supporting point. Although the speaker states that her GP must obtain authorization for her prescription every 30 days, this is not the main idea the speaker is trying to convey.

  I should say one more thing about theory. It's a … It's great to discover theory, but there .. the .. you have to lose a lot, and you may have noticed, or maybe you didn't, how much you lose. Partly you don't notice it much because here at the university everybody's dedicated to theory, and what is … what's left out is ,uh, perception cause you-you use your mind not your eyes. Skill-you're not supposed to have to have any particular, uh, sort of bodily kind of skills; there's a kind of mental thing, but I'm not … let's not call that skill. I'm just calling skill the way you cope with everyday stuff that you use and so forth. Intuition, it's not fair to have intuition, I mean you can have intuition, but it's not ... it's not theory, it's not something that everybody has to believe until you can put it into language and argue for it. Gets rid of emotions, the body, tradition.
 
Answers

Question: What is the lecture mainly about?
 
Incorrect: Perception and how it relates to the mind and eyes.
Explanation: This response is incorrect. Perception is discussed in relation to what theory does not include, the speaker says, “you use your mind not your eyes.”
 
Incorrect: Intuition and how to use it to form theory.
Explanation: This response is incorrect. The lecturer declares that intuition is separate from the formation of theory by saying, “you can have intuition but it's not…theory.”
 
Correct: Theory and how it forces you to lose aspects of yourself.
Explanation: This response is correct. The lecturer begins by saying that he is talking about theory. He says, “It's great to discover theory, but … you have to lose a lot,” and then goes on to list the things that one loses in pursuit of theory including perception, skill, intuition, emotions and the body.
 
Incorrect: Skill and how it should be applied in a university setting.
Explanation: This response is incorrect because the lecturer provides a definition of skill, but skill is not the focus of the lecture.
