Listen to the tape then answer this question. Who is only twenty-nine, and why is it so unclear?
听录音,然后回答问题。谁只有29岁?为什么这件事如此含糊不清?

KATE: Can you recognize that woman,
Liz?
LIZ: I think I can, Kate.
It must be Karen Marsh,
the actress.
KATE: I though so.
Who's that beside her?
LIZ: That must be Conrad Reeves.
KATE: Conrad Reeves, the actor?
It's can't be.
Let me have another look.
I think you're right!
Isn't he her third husband?
LIZ: No. He must be her fourth or
fifth.
KATE: Doesn't Karen Marsh look old!
LIZ: She does, doesn't she!
I read she's twenty-nine,
but she must be at least forty.
KATE: I'm sure she is.
LIZ: She was a famous actress
When I was still at school.
KATE: That was a long time ago,
wasn't it?
LIZ: Not that long ago!
I'm not more than twenty-nine
myself.
