Hi,The Learn English Team: 
 Would you help me with my understanding? Why the question 3/5: Marcia has the final decision on the twelve interview candidates is false. 
In the dialogue , there is a sentence as follow: So, I whittled down the serious candidates. 
SO ,Why is the question 3/5 rihgt? 
I look forward to your answer, thanks a lot 
to a short-list of twelve people.

Hi Jeany,
Look at what Marcia says after the sentence you quoted - that should answer your question.
Best wishes,

Hi AdamJK,

Initial, I also have wonder a like Jeany, but I read Marcia's sentences carefully. Thus, This mean is Marcia reduced candidates from candidate twelve list, right?

Thanks a lot

Hi le nhung,

The sentence 'I whittled down the serious candidates to a short-list of twelve people' means there were more than twelve and the Marcia reduced to the best twelve.  So not 'from twelve' but 'to twelve'.

I hope that clarifies it for you.

Best wishes,
