Text 1
The period of adolescence, i.e., the period between childhood and adulthood, may be long or short, depending on social expectations and on society’s definition as to what con stitutes maturity and adulthood. In primitive societies adolescence is frequently a relatively short period of time, while in industrial societies with patterns of prolonged education co upled with laws against child labor, the period of adolescence is much longer and may in clude most of the second decade of one’s life. Furthermore, the length of the adolescent p eriod and the definition of adulthood status may change in a given society as social and economic conditions change. Examples of this type of change are the disappearance of the frontier in the latter part of the nineteenth century in the United States, and more univer sally, the industrialization of an agricultural society.
In modern society, ceremonies for adolescence have lost their formal recognition and symbolic significance and there no longer is agreement as to what constitutes initiation cer emonies. Social ones have been replaced by a sequence of steps that lead to increased rec ognition and social status. For example, grade school graduation, high school graduation a nd college graduation constitute such a sequence, and while each step implies certain beha vioral changes and social recognition, the significance of each depends on the socio-econo mic status and the educational ambition of the individual. Ceremonies for adolescence hav e also been replaced by legal definitions of status roles, right, privileges and responsibilitie s. It is during the nine years from the twelfth birthday to the twenty-first that the protecti ve and restrictive aspects of childhood and minor status are removed and adult privileges
and responsibilities are granted. The twelve-year-old is no longer considered a child and h as to pay full fare for train, airplane, theater and movie tickets. Basically, the individual a t this age loses childhood privileges without gaining significant adult rights. At the age of sixteen the adolescent is granted certain adult rights which increases his social status by providing him with more freedom and choices. He now can obtain a driver’s license; he can leave public schools; and he can work without the restrictions of child labor laws. At the age of eighteen the law provides adult responsibilities as well as rights; the young m an can now be a soldier, but he also can marry without parental permission. At the age o f twenty-one the individual obtains his full legal rights as an adult. He now can vote, he can buy liquor, he can enter into financial contracts, and he is entitled to run for public office. No additional basic rights are acquired as a function of age after majority status h as been attained. None of these legal provisions determine at what point adulthood has be en reached but they do point to the prolonged period of adolescence.

  41. The period of adolescence is much longer in industrial societies because _.
[A] the definition of maturity has changed
[B] the industrialized society is more developed
[C] more education is provided and laws against child labor are made(C)
[D] ceremonies for adolescence have lost their formal recognition and symbolic signifi cance

  42. Former social ceremonies that used to mark adolescence have given place to .
[A] graduations from schools and colleges
[B] social recognition
[C] socio-economic status(A)
[D] certain behavioral changes

  43. No one can expect to fully enjoy the adulthood privileges until he is .
[A] eleven years old
[B] sixteen years old
[C] twenty-one years old(C)
[D] between twelve and twenty-one years old

  44. Starting from 22, .
[A] one will obtain more basic rights
[B] the older one becomes, the more basic rights he will have
[C] one won’t get more basic rights than when he is 21(C)
[D] one will enjoy more rights granted by society

  45. According to the passage, it is true that .
[A] in the late 19th century in the United States the dividing line between adolescenc e and adulthood no longer existed
[B] no one can marry without the permission of his parents until the age of twenty-o ne
[C] one is considered to have reached adulthood when he has a driver’s license(A)
[D] one is not free from the restrictions of child labor laws until he can join the ar m

Well, no gain without pain, they say. But what about pain without gain? Everywhere you go in America, you hear tales of corporate revival. What is harder to establish is w hether the productivity revolution that businessmen assume they are presiding over is for r eal.
The official statistics are mildly discouraging. They show that, if you lump manufactu ring and services together, productivity has grown on average by
  1.2% since 19
  87. That i s somewhat faster than the average during the previous decade. And since 1991, productiv ity has increased by about 2% a year, which is more than twice the 1978-1987 average. The trouble is that part of the recent acceleration is due to the usual rebound that occurs at this point in a business cycle, and so is not conclusive evidence of a revival in the un derlying trend. There is, as Robert Rubin, the treasury secretary, says, a “disjunction” bet ween the mass of business anecdote that points to a leap in productivity and the picture r eflected by the statistics.
Some of this can be easily explained. New ways of organizing the workplace?all tha t re-engineering and downsizing?are only one contribution to the overall productivity of a n economy, which is driven by many other factors such as joint investment in equipment
and machinery, new technology, and investment in education and training. Moreover, most of the changes that companies make are intended to keep them profitable, and this need not always mean increasing productivity: switching to new markets or improving quality c an matte
