1.Who takes care of the elderly in the United States today? The fact is that family members provide over 80% of the care that elderly people need. In most cases the elderly live in their own homes. A very small percentage of America's elderly live in nursing homes.
Samuel Preston, a sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania, studied how the American family is changing. He reported that by the time the average American couple reaches about 40 years of age, their parents are usually still alive. The statistics show the change in lifestyles and responsibilities of aging (老齡化) Americans. The average middle-aged couple can look forward to caring for elderly parents sometime after their own children have grown up. Moreover, because people today live longer after an illness than people did years ago, family members must provide long-term care. These facts also mean that after caregivers provide for their elderly parents, who will eventually die, they will be old and may require care too. When they do, their spouses (配偶) will probably take care of them because they have had fewer children than their parents did.
Because Americans are living longer than ever, more social workers have begun to study ways of caregiving to improve the care of the elderly. They have found that all caregivers share a common characteristic; They believe that they are the best people for the job. The social workers have also discovered three basic reasons why the caregivers take on the responsibility of caring for an elderly, dependent relative. Many caregivers believe they had an obligation (職責) to help their relatives. Some think that helping others makes them feel more useful. Others hope that by helping someone now, they will deserve care when they become old and dependent.
Samuel Preston's study shows that______.
A.lifestyles and responsibilities of the elderly are not changing
B.most American couples over 40 have no living parents
C.middle-aged Americans have to take care of their children and parents at the same time
D.elderly people may need care for a long time because they live longer after an illness

B.Their close friends.
D.Their husbands or wives.
All caregivers believe that they can______.
A.care for their elderly parents better than any other people
B.keep closer to their old parents by this means
C.do much better if they have a job as social workers
D.improve the care of the elderly with the help of the social workers
Which of the following is NOT a reason why people look after their relatives?
A.They feel they are of use to other people.
B.They want to set an example to their children.
C.They think it is their duty to help their relatives.

What is the main idea of the passage?
A.Most old people live longer today after an illness than people did years ago.
B.Many old people are put into nursing homes by their families, who do not visit them regularly.

7.I once knew a young man, nineteen years of age, who lived with absolute outward (外表的) confidence and self-possession for a number of years before I discovered that he could not read or write. His various methods of trick, which were also skills of self-protection, were so skillful and so desperate (絕望) that neither I nor any of his other adult friends were aware of his entire helplessness in face of written words until we went to dinner one night at a local restaurant—and suddenly discovered that he could not read.
Even here, it was not the first time we went out to eat, but something like the second or third, that Peter's desperation shocked me. The first time, he was clever enough to cover the truth. He studied the menu for a moment, then looked up to the waitress and asked her if he could have 'just a coke and a hamburger'. He told me later that he had done the same thing many times before and that he had learned to act as if he were examining the menu:' Then I ask for a coke and a hamburger. . . Sometimes they give me a hamburger on a plate with salad and potatoes. . . Then I ask them for a roll and make my own hamburger.
As we began to go out to eat more frequently, Peter would ask to go to Howard Johnson's. I soon discovered the reason for his choice: The photographs, attached in cellophane(玻璃紙) containers to each of the standard items on the menu, could help him not to struggle with the shape of words at all. Howard Johnson's, whether intentionally or not, had provided the perfect escape for the endangered pride of an adult who was illiterate(文盲).
When he went to a restaurant, Peter would______.
A.pretend that he could not read or write
B.pretend to be studying the menu
C.be desperate for help from other people
D.protect himself by playing a musical instrument

A.he dined out with his adult friends at Howard Johnson's
B.he could no longer come up with various ways of deception
C.he had dinner with his friends at a certain local restaurant for the second or third time
D.he was not careful enough to be aware of his entire helplessness in face of written words
What did the young man usually have at a restaurant?
A.Standard items on the menu.
B.A hamburger made by himself.
C.Foods that other people ordered.
D.A coke and a hamburger.
The word' self-possession' ( Para. 1) probably means______.
Why did the young man like to go to Howard Johnson's?
A.Howard Jonhson's provided a perfect escape when anything dangerous should happen.
B.The menu at Howard Johnson's gave a clear introduction of the food it served.
C.The photographs attached to the main items on the menu helped conceal his illiteracy.
D.He would feel at ease because eaters at Howard Johnson's were all adult non-readers.
13.After practising as a surgeon for several years, Dr. Ginoux decided to apply for membership in the American College of Surgeons(美國外科醫生學會) , a highly selective and distinguished(著名的) professional organization.
As part of the application procedure (手續) , Dr. Ginoux was asked to prepare a list of all the operations performed in the previous even years. Slowly, as she worked on the long list, she began to feel uncertain. She began to question some of her decisions. Had she used the best technique in that case? Maybe, in this case, she should have given one more test before operating? On the other hand, maybe she should have. . . Would the doctors on the selection committee understand that, as the only trained surgeon in the area, she usually could not get advice from others and therefore, had to rely completely on her own judgment? For the first time, Dr. Ginoux felt lonely and isolated.
The longer Dr. Ginoux worked on the application forms, the more depressed she became. As hope faded, she wondered if a 'country doctor'had a realistic chance of being accepted by the American College of Surgeons.

19.Are some people born clever and other born stupid? Or is intelligence developed by our environment and our experience? Strangely enough, the answer to these questions is yes. To some extent our intelligence is given to us at birth, and no amount of special education can make a genius out of a child born with low intelligence. On the other hand, a child who lives in a boring environment will develop his intelligence less than one who lives in rich and varied surroundings. Thus the limits of a person's intelligence are fixed at birth, whether or not he reaches those limits will depend on his environment. This view, now held by most experts, can be supported in a number of ways.
It is easy to show that intelligence is to some extent something we are born with. The closer the blood relationship between two people is, the closer they are likely to be in intelligence. Thus if we take two unrelated people at random from the population, it is likely that their degree of intelligence will be completely different. If, on the other hand, we take two identical twins, they will very likely be as intelligent as each other. Relations like brothers and sisters, parents and children, usually have similar intelligence, and this clearly suggests that intelligence depend on birth.
Imagine now that we take two identical twins and put them in different environments. We might send one, for example, to a university and the other to a factory where the work is boring. We would soon find differences in their intelligence developing, and this indicates that environment as well as birth plays a part. This conclusion is also suggested by the fact that people who live in close contact with each other, but who are not related at all are likely to have similar degree of intelligence.
If a child is born with low intelligence, he can______.
A.not reach his intelligence in his life
B.go beyond his intelligence limits in rich surroundings
C.still become a genius if he should be given special education
D.become a genius
'If we take two unrelated people at random from the population' ( Para. 2) means if we______. .
A.choose two persons with different intelligence
B.choose two persons who are relative
C.take out two persons of close relationship
D.pick any two persons
The example of the twins going to a university and to a factory separately shows______.
A.the part that birth plays
B.the importance of their positions
C.the role of environment on intelligence
D.the importance of their intelligence
The writer is in favor of the view that man's intelligence is given to him______.
A.neither at birth nor through education
B.both at birth and through education
The best title of this passage can be______
A.Effect of Education
B.Dependence on Environment
