PartⅡ Reading Comprehension (35minutan)

Directions: There are 4 passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some questions unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A), B),C)and D).You should decide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheer with a single line through the centre.

Passage One

Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.

I'm usually fairly skeptical about any research that concludes that people are either happier on unhappier or more or less certain of themselves than they were 50 years ago. While any of there statements might be true, they are practically impossible to prove scientifically. Still, I was struck by a report which concluded that today's children are significantly more anxious than children in the 1950. In fact, the analysis showed, normal children ages 9 to 17 exhibit a higher level of anxiety today than children who were treated for mental illness 50 years ago.

Why are America's kids so stressed? The report cites two main causes: increasing physical isolation -- brought on by high divorce rates and less involvement in community, among other things -- and a growing perception that the world is a more dangerous place.

Given that we can't turn the clock back, adults can still do plenty to help the next generation cope. At the top of the list is nurturing (培育) a better appreciation of the limits of individualism. No child is an island. Strengthening social ties helps build communities and protect individuals against stress.

To help kids build stronger connections with others, you can pull the plug on TVs and computers. Your family will thank you later. They will have more time for face-to-face relationships, and they will get more sleep.

Limit the amount of viral (虚拟的) violence your children are exposed to. It's not just radio games and movies; children see a lot of murder and crime on the local news.

Keep your expectations for your children reasonable. Many highly successful people never attended Harvard or Yale.

Make exercise part of your daily routine. It will help you cope with your own anxieties and provide a good model for your kids. Sometimes anxiety is unavoidable. But it doesn't have to ruin your life.

21. The author thinks that the conclusions of any research about people's state of mind are ______.

A) surprising C) illogical

B) confusing D)questionable

22. What does the author mean when he says, "we can't turn the clock back"(Line 1, Para.3)?

A) It's impossible to slow down the pace of change.

B) The social reality children are facing cannot be changed.

C) Lessons learned from the past should not be forgotten.

D) It's impossible to forget the past.

23. According to an analysis, compared with normal children today, children treated as mentally ill 50 years ago ______.

A) were less isolated physically C) probably suffered less from anxiety

B) were probably less self-centered D)were considered less individualistic

24. The first and most important thing parents should do to help their children is ______.

A) to provide them with a safer environment

B) to lower them expectations for them

C) to get them more involved socially

D) to set a good model for them to follow

25. What conclusion can be drawn from the passage?

A) Anxiety, though unavoidable, can be coped with.

B) Children’s anxiety has been enormously exaggerated.

C) Children's anxiety can be eliminated with more parental care.

D) Anxiety, it properly controlled, may help children become mature.

 

Passage Two

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.
