Part II Reading Comprehension(35 minutes) Directions:There are 4 passages in this part.Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished statements.For each of them there are four choices marked A) ,C)and D) ,B) .You should decided on the choice that best answers the question or completes the statement.Then mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the centre . Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage: The ordinary family in colonial North America was primarily concerned with sheer physical survival and beyond that,its own economic prosperity.Thus,children were valued in terms of their productivity and they assumed the role of producer quite early.Until they fulfilled this role, their position, the structure of the family was one of subordination, their psychological need in and and capacities received little consideration. As the society became more complex, status 地位) children in the family and in the society the ( of became more important.In the complex technological society that the United States has become, each member must fulfill a number of personal and occupational roles and be in constant contact with a great many other members.Consequently,viewing children as potentially acceptable and necessarily multifaceted(多方面的)member of society means that they are regarded more as people in their own right than as utilitarian(功利的)organisms .This acceptance of children as equal participants in the contemporary family is reflected in the variety of statutes protecting the rights of children and in the social and public welfare programs devoted exclusively to their well-being. This new view of children and the increasing contact between the members of society has also resulted in a surge of interest in child-rearing techniques.People today spend a considerable portion of their time conferring on the proper way to bring up children.It is now possible to influence the details of the socialization of another person's child by spreading the gospel(原则、 信条)of current and fashionable theories and methods of child rearing. The socialization of the contemporary child in the United States is a two-way transaction between parent and child rather than a one-way parent-to-child training program.As a consequence, socializing children and living with them over a long period of time is for parents a mixture of pleasure,satisfaction,and problem.

We know that you have a high opinion of the kind of learning taught in your colleges,and that the costs of living of our young men,while with you,would be very expensive to you.We are convinced that you mean to do us good by your proposal and we thank you heartily.But you must know that different nations have different ways of looking at things,and you will therefore not be offended if our ideas of this kind of education happen not to be the same as yours.We have had some experience of it. Several of our young people were formerly brought up at the colleges of the northern provinces ; they were taught all your sciences; when they came back to us they were but bad runners,ignorant of every means of living in the woods,they were totally good for nothing.

( , is at rest,assumes such a spreadout shape as to keep the lens rather flat.But the lens is highly elastic;and it springs into the more convex form which is natural to it whenever the ciliary muscle,by contracting, makes the ligament relax its pressure.The contraction of the muscle, by thus tendering the lens more refractive, adapts the eye for near objects “accommodatesit for ( them,as we say) :and its relaxation,by rendering the lens less refractive, adapts the eye for distant vision.Accommodation for the near is thus the more active change,since it involves contraction of the ciliary muscle.When we look far off,we simply let our eyes go passive.

Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage:
Are you aware that you actually possess six senses?The sixth is a muscular sense responsible for directing your muscles intelligently to the exact extent necessary for each action you perform.For example,when you reach for an object,the sensory nerves linking the muscles to the brain stop your hand at the correct spot. This automatic perception of the position of your muscles in relation to the object is your muscular sense in action.
Muscles are stringy bundles of fibers varying from one five thousandth of an inch to about three inches.They have three unique characteristics: they can become shorter and thicker;they can stretch; they can retract to their original po- sition. and Under a high-powered microscope, muscle tissue is seen as long,slender cells with a grainy texture like wood.
More than half of a person's body is composed of muscle fibers,most of which are involuntary, in other words,work without conscious direction.The voluntary muscles,those that we move consciously to perform particular actions,number more than five hundred.Women have only 60 to 70 percent as much muscle as men for their body mass. That is why an average woman can't lift as much,throw as far,or hit as hard as an average man.

A)involuntary muscles B)muscle fibers
C)sensory nerves D)voluntary muscles
