Personally, I like sending messages because I don't know whether my friend is available now or not.

Hi evetyone! Please help me to understand!
Who tell me? why in the fifht question of the task 1 right aswer about drink?
IDK? please help me to understand.

Hello Russel Uz,

The first message is "Hey! Want to meet for a drink after work?" and the reply is positive ("Cool, what time do you finish?"). Thus, we know they are going for a drink and the answer to 'They are going to have a drink" is 'True'.

I prefer text messages because it is simple and we can connect each other all the time. When we want to make a plan, we talk with voice messages or on the phone directly.
