7 Different countries and different people have different manners. We must find out their customs, so that they will not think us ill-mannered. Here are some examples of the things that a well-mannered person does or does not do. If you visit a Chinese family you should knock at the door first. When the door opens, you’ll not move before the host says, “Come in, please.” After you enter the room, you wouldn’t sit down until the host asks you to take a seat. When a cup of tea is put on a tea-table before you or sent to your hand, you’ll say “Thank you” and receive it with your two hands, not one hand, or they’ll think you are ill-mannered. Before ente-ring a house in Japan, it is good manners to take off your shoes. In European countries, even though shoes sometimes become very dirty, this is not done. In a Malay house, a guest never finishes the food on the table. He leaves a little to show that he has had e-nough. In England, a guest always finishes a drink or the food to show that he has en-joyed it. This will make the host, especially the hostess pleasant.

  5.B 10 Social scientists, teachers, and parents are troubled by the kinds of TV programs children choose to watch. These groups of people are concerned about the media’s effects on young children. They are worried about the effects of televised violence on society as well as commercials for food. Most importantly, however, they feel TV is one factor that causes declining math and reading scores among schoolchildren. Because of the exces-sive time spent watching TV, children are spending less time reading and thinking inde-pendently. Indeed, youngsters are watching a lot of TV an average of nearly four hours a day and about 25 hours a week. Upon entering kindergarten at age 5, a child already has spent more hours watching TV than he or she would spend earning a college degree. By the child’s 18th birthday, more time has been spent watching TV than on any other single activity except sleep. Clever advertising aimed at children certainly influences them. Very young children don’t even distinguish between commercials and programs. Is it fair to show advertising to young children? Many people think that it is not. The US government has yet to control children’s advertising, but Canada imposed a limited ban on commercials aimed at chil dren.
  1. According to the above passage, children often sit in front of TV set for a week in average. A. 16 hours B. 4 hours
C. 100 hours
D. 25 hours

  1. D
  2. D
  3. D
  4. A 解析:

  3.孩子们易受影响是因为他们的世界观 尚未形成。从最后一段可知。
  4.看电视过多会影响学习。孩子们看电视时间太多了,而不去为取得学位拼搏。 从第三段可知。
