Recent speaking question types from the July 2013 test in Manhattan

Someone informed me that TOEFL seems to have changed it's format for Type 1 and Type 2 speaking questions.

He stated that the first question for the Type 1 question provided 3 choices.  i.e. If you were to do volunteer work, which type of work would you choose: 1) Talk to elderly people to make sure they are not lonely. 2) Visit patients in a hospital. Or, 3) (the person could not remember the third choice)

For the second question the person was asked whether he would like to work at a job in which he worked alone, or with a small group of people.

If this information is true, TOEFL does not always provide a 'descriptive' question followed by a 'choice' question.  Therefore you should be aware of that...
