III、Reading Comprehension（30 points，2 points for each item）
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.
who talks more，women or men？ The seemingly conflicting evidence is resolved by the difference between what I call public and private speaking.More men feel comfortable doing “public speaking，” while more women feel comfortable doing “private” speaking.Another way of capturing these differences is by using the terms repoter—talk.
For most women，the language of conversation is primarily a language of rapport： a way of establishing connections and negotiating relationships.Emphasis is placed on displaying similarities and matching experiences.From childhood，girls criticize their friends who try to stand out or appear better than others.People feel their closest connections at home，or in places where they feel at home—with one or a few people they feel close to and comfortable with-in other words，during private speaking.But even the most public situations can be approached like private speaking.
For most men，talk is primarily a means to preserve independence and negotiate and maintain status in a hierarchcal（等级制度的）social order.This is done by exhibiting knowledge and skill，and by holding center stage through verbal performance such as story-telling，joking，or conveying information. From childhood，men learn to use talking as a way to get and keep attention.Therefore，they are more confortable speaking in larger groups made up of people they know less well，in the broadest sense，“public speaking”。But even the most private situations can be approached like public speaking，more like giving a report than establishing rapport.

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.
The best example of how associations influence eating is that we often eat not because we‘re hungry but because it’s “lunchtime，” because foods smell good，or because our friends are eating.
More evidence that associations influence eating comes from marketing and advertising pressures to sell foods by offering huge servings.For example，movie theatre offer an extra large box of popcorn（爆玉米花），which，at almost 900 calories，is equivalent to a major meal.Health professionals warn that as children，adolscents（青少年），and adults learn to prefer large portions and tasty foods high in fat，sugar，and calories，there has been a corresponding increase in rates of being over weight（from 25％in 1988 to 34％in 1998）。Researchers are especially concerned about the continued rates of overweight and obesity（肥胖）in children since childhood obesiity very difficult to treat and an obese child has a high probabiliety of becoming an obese adult with the associated health risks we discussed earlier.
Health professionals suggest that to avoid future increases in rates of overweight and obesity，we need to try hard to forget many of our food associations，which primarily involve decreasing size of food portions，increasing levels of activity to burn off excess calories.
26.The influence of food association can be seen clearly from the example that we often eat NOT because ______
A.it‘s time for lunch

C.30 per cent D.40 per cent
29.According to the passage，an obese child is
A.less at risk of heart diseases
C.very had to get along with
D.more likely to become an obese adult
30.In order to avoid future increases in rates of overweight and obesity，we need to do all the following EXCEPT ______
A.make an effort to forget our food association

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage
Labor force is defined as being the total number of people who are available to work abd earb income.This definition includes everyone who is employed or seeking paid employment，so it includes employers and the self-employed.Labor is one of the country‘s resources which can be combined with other resources to produce the goods and services wanted by the community.
Although the size of the workforce depends a great deal on the size of the total population，there are several other influences which also affect it.The age distribution of the total population has a very marked effect on the available workforce.if the population has a high proportion of very young people or of those too old to work，then the available workforce would be lower than if there were an evenly spread age distribution.If the population naturally grows rapidly，i.e. the number of births greatly exceeds the number of deaths then as a total population increases proportion the work-force declines.
Sometimes a population is described as aging which means that the birth rate is either falling or growing very slowly，and as people retire from the workforce there are insufficient numbers of young people entering it to replace those who are leaving it.The population is top-heavy（头重脚轻）with older people.So the percentage of the population in the workforce declines when there is either a rapid increase in births or a falling birth rate.
The age distribution of the population has several important effects on the economy.If the population is aging and there is an increase in the number of people retiring without a corresponding increase in the number entering the workforce，this raises the problem of the ability of the economy to provide a reasonable level of social services to the retired group.If the aged are to be cared for in special homes，finance must be available for that purpose.If the size of the workforce is small relative to the total population，then the government tax revenue is relatively low and either the government has less money available to it or the workforce members have to be taxed more heavily.
31.Labor force is referred to as ______
A.people who are available to work and earn income
B.self—employed people only

A.a population growth from natural increase leads to a greater proportion of the workforce.
B.a large population does not necessarily mean a higher proportion of workforce
C.the larger the number of the aged in a population，the higher the proportion of the workforce
D.if the population has an evenly spread age distribution，the workforce will be lower
34.When a population is said to be aging，______
A.there are more people retiring than those entering the workforce
B.the birth rate must be growing
C.there should be an oversupply of workforce

In addition to the need for food，man also has need for some kind of protection from heat and cold，and from wind and rain.The first homes of man were very simple.The size and kind of buildings whicg he built were limited by his tecgnical knowledge and also by the kind of building materials （which were）available to him.Climate also had an important influence.In some places，man‘s home would be nothing more than a cave in the side of a hill，with a fire at the entrance to give light and warmth and to keep dangerous wild animals away.In warmer are areas primitive man could use branches to make a framework which he then covered with leaves.
