Questions No. 17 to 19
M： This math homework is hard. I wish I’d chosen a different major.

M： Which report?
W： This report, listing the top 100 jobs in the U.S. today.
M： Is golfer on there?
W： No. This ranking is based not just on income, but on things like stress and working environment.
M： You know, my father is a nurse. Are science occupations considered good?
W： The top five jobs use science and numbers. Maybe I should change my major from history to science.
