No doubt they are pronounced almost the same, but there is a difference in the meanings of both words. So whichever makes sense is the right answer.
Nurlybek
Is the recording speed little faster than usual?
Nurlybek
I did the same. Thanks for the reply!
Nurlybek
Agree.
Lyn
I have got 32. :)
Srikari
The answer to the 27th question, I wrote site instead of sight, since both pronounced similar. Will iI be awarded marks for that?
Ashu
I wrote 'strange taste' and 'small size' in question 13 and 14. Are they right or should they be 'a strange taste' and 'the small size'?
Clem
For the answer 32 - the speaker mentioned the singular in the audio recording and you are mentioning both. On the top of that, there is a spelling mistake 'HOUSEWIFES' is wrong because it is the singular which the correct spelling should be HOUSEWIFE. For the plural spelling is HOUSEWIVES.

I cannot find the recording of the listening section.
