In the “Select missing word” task you will see an audio recording box on your screen with a multiple choice question beneath it. After 7 seconds, a recording will automatically play, and will last for approximately 20-70 seconds. You will not hear the last word (or group of words) in the recording, instead you will hear a beep. You must decide which of the multiple choice options is most likely to be the final word(s) in the recording. Here is what you will see on your screen:
