the /r/ sound

Dear Rachel, Richard and all,

Once again in the book Business Listening and Speaking by Maurice Jamall and Bruce Wade, /r/ sound is taught to be pronounced in American English and silent in British English as in the followoing sentences:

1. Offer them more time to pay. (US - pronounced)
2. Offer them more time to pay. (UK- silent)
3. It's an hour and a half from the ware house. (US- pronounced)
4. It's an hour and a half from the ware house. (US- pronounced)
5. We mainly export to Argentina. (UK- silent)
6. We mainly export to Argentina. (US- pronounced)

After listening to the tape many times, I think:

- In 1 there is no /r/ sound while there is a /r/ in 2.
- No /r/ in 3 and this is not American English, but British English.

Can you listen and help me please?
Many thanks.
