Three things to remember when number is an answer in the Listening test

In the Listening Test when you are expecting a number for an answer, you got to be aware of three things. First, they will try to confuse you. Whenever a number is an answer, for any of the questions, they will try to repeat more than one number. You have got to be listening to it very carefully, which is the correct number for the answer. Second, they use the letter ‘O for zero. In many of the cultures, we don’t do that. But in the audio if you hear the letter, ‘O’, being mentioned, when you are expecting a number, it means it is a zero. Third, most important, whenever there is a number for an answer, it should have a unit unless it is a number of elephants or number of candles. If the unit is already printed, on the question paper, then you should not be writing the units. If the unit is not printed, you have to mention the units. These three things are something you have to remember when a number is an answer in the Listening test.
