You should be learning to stand on your own feet. But take a good look at the present rebellion. It seems that teenagers are all taking the same way of showing that they disagree with their parents. Instead of striking out boldly on their own, most of them are holding one , another's hands for reassurance (放心)。 放心)。 They claim they want to dress as they please. But they all wear the same clothes. They set off in new directions in music. But they all end up listening to the same record.

Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage: (
  77) Much unfriendly feeling towards computers has been based on the fear ) of widespread unemployment resulting from their introduction. Computers are often used as part of automated (自动化) production systems requiring a least possible 自动化) number of operators, causing the loss of many jobs.

only when people try to live on a very restricted diet that it is necessary to make special provision to supply the missing vitamins. An example of the dangers of a restricted diet may be seen in the disease known as“beri-beri”。 (

It should be recooked for the patients, and the chickens , should be fed on cheap rice with the outer layer still on the grain. Eijkman noticed that the chickens began to recover on the new diet. He began to consider the possibility that eating unpolished rice somehow prevented or cured "beri-beri" ?? even that a lack,of some element in the husk might be the cause of the , disease.
