A: Hello, Nitin. How are you? You look depressed. Has anything gone wrong?
B: Yes, Balu, I have and a terrible misfortune.
A: What happened?
B: I had deposited all money I had in a private banking company. Now the company has been liquidated.

B: I’m trying. But I’m not very hopeful.
A: You must be terribly upset. But please don’t lose hope.
At the School
A: Good morning, teacher.
B: Good morning, Mrs.Sindhu. Anil has been absent for the last two days. Is he unwell?
A: He has had an accident.
B: Oh, no! I hope it’s nothing serious.
A: It is bad. He was hit by a scooter while crossing the road. His right leg is fractured.
B: How unfortunate! Is he in a hospital?
A: No, he’s at home. But he has to remain in bed for a month. So I came to give his leave application.
B: You must be really upset about it. Please don’t worry about the classes. Anil is a very bright boy. He can easily make up for the classes he misses. He’ll be all right very soon. Please give him my love.
A: I’ll do that. Thank you, teacher.
A: Hello, Rahim. How have you done your exams?
B: I thought I had done well.
A: Has something gone wrong?
B: This morning I came to know that I have got only a second class. I was expecting a first class.
