Questions 21 to 23 are based on the following passage.
If you are like most people，your intelligence varies from season to season.You are probably a lot sharper in the spring than you are at any other time of the year.A noted scientist，Ellsworth Huntington（1876-1947），concluded from other men‘s work and his own among peoples in different climates that climate and temperature have a definite effect on your mental abilities.
He found that cool weather is much more favourable for creative thinking than is summer heat.This does not mean that all people are less intelligent in the summer than they are during the rest of the year.It does mean，however，that the mental abilities of large numbers of people tend to be lowest in the summer.
Spring appears to be the best period of the year for thinking.One reason may be that in the spring man‘s mental abilities are affected by the same factors that bring about great changes in all nature.
Fall is the next-best season，then winter.As for summer，it seems to be good time to take a long vacation from thinking！
21.Huntington decided that climate and temperature have _____.

Questions 24 to 26 are based on the following passage.
The faces of elderly，happily-married people sometimes resemble each other.Dr.Aiken studied a number of couples who had been married for at least twenty-fiveyears.Each couple provided four photographs-one photo of each partner at the time of their marriage and another photo of each partner twenty-five or more years later.All background was cut from the photos to remove any clues.The photos were then displayed in groups：a random grouping of the persons at the time of their marriage and another random grouping of the same persons who took photographs later.Some judges were asked to pick out the partners.They failed totally with the first group.Their judgements were no better than chance.But with the photos taken twenty-five or more years after the marriage，the judges were quite successful at deciding who was married to whom.They were particularly successful with the most happily-married couples.
Dr.Aiken believes there are several reasons why couples grow alike.One reason has something to do with imitation.One person tends to copy or do the same as someone else without knowing it.He says human begins imitate the expressions of the faces of their loved ones.Another possible reason，he says，is the common experience of the couples.There is a tendency for people who have the same life experience to change their faces in similar ways.For example，if a couple suffered from a lot of sad experiences，their faces are likely to change in a similar way.
24.The main purpose of the passage is to _____.
A.tell how couples like each other
B.show the life experience of husband and wife
C.explain why couples grow alike
D.describe the study on a number of married people
