direction, passage with conclusion

Directions:
Questions in the form of inferences/ conclusions are based on the passages given below. Each passage is followed by five inferences. You are required to examine each inference separately in the context of the passage and decide upon its degree of truth or falsity.
Give answer:
  1. If the inference is definitely true, i.e., it properly follows from the statement of facts given
  2. If the inference is probably true though not definitely true in the light of the facts given
  3. If the data are inadequate i.e., from the facts given you cannot say whether the inference is likely to be true or false
  4. If the inference is probably false though not definitely false in the light of the facts given
  5. If the inference is definitely false i.e., it cannot possibly be drawn from the facts given or it contradicts the given facts
Passage 1
The first time I saw The Wizard of Oz, the story bewitched me. The second time I saw the Wizard of Oz, the special effects amazed me. The third time I saw The Wizard of Oz, the photography dazzled me. Have you ever seen a movie twice, three times? You notice subtleties and hear sounds you completely missed the first time around.
It's the same on the phone. Because your business conversations are more consequential than movies, you should listen to them two, may be three times, often we have no clear idea of what really happened in our phone conversation until we hear it again. You'll find shadings more significant than the colour of toto's collar and more scare crows than you imagined who 'haven't got a brain!'
How do you listen to your important business conversation again? Simply legally and ethically tape record them. I call the technique of recording and analysing your business conversations for subtleties.
