Part III Reading comprehension
For years, business people in Western Europe were worried. They knew they could not compete against business from the U. S. The United States is much larger and had many more resources than any Western European country.
Some European people realized that the European nations need to join together to help each other. If they could forget their language differences and the differences in customs, they might become strong competition against other countries.
In 1958, six of the European countries----Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Germany and Italy got together and decided to cooperate(合作). They called their group the European Economic Community, or the Common Market． These countries agreed to join their resources together.
Within a few years, the European Economic Community had worked so well that its members were more prosperous(繁荣) than many other European nations. Soon, other nations began to realize the advantages(好处) of the Common Market. Today the Common Market includes most of the important countries in Western Europe. It is helping Western Europe to again take its place as a leader among the industrial nations of the world.

63．Which statement is true?

Perhaps the most famous theory, the study of body movement, was suggested by Professor Ray Birdwhistell. He believes that physical appearance is often culturally（文化的）programmed. In other words, we learn our looks ---- we are not born with them. A baby has generally unformed face features（特征）. A baby, according to Birdwhistle, learns where to set the eyebrows（眉毛）by looking at those around ---- family and friends. This helps explain why the people of some areas of the United States look so much alike, New Englanders or Southerners have certain common face features that cannot be explained by genetics（遗传学）. The exact shape of the mouth is not set at birth, it is learned after. In fact, the final mouth shape is not formed until well after new teeth are set. For many, this can be well into grown-ups. A husband and wife together for a long time often come to look somewhat alike. We learn our looks from those around us. This is perhaps why in a single country there are areas where people smile more than those in other areas. In the United States, for example, the South is the part of the country where the people smile most frequently. In New England they smile less, and in the western part of New York State still less. Many Southerners find cities such as New York cold and unfriendly, partly because people on Madison Avenue smile less than people on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgi A．People in largely populated areas also smile and greet each other in public less than do people in small towns.
66．Ray Birdwhistle believes physical appearance
A．has little to do with culture.
B．has much to do with culture.
C．is ever changing.
D．is different from place to place
67．According to the passage, the final mouth shape is formed
B．as soon as one's teeth are newly set.
C．sometime after new teeth are set.
D．around 15 years old.
68．Ray Birdwhistle can tell what area of the United States a person is from by
A．how much he or she smiles.
B．how he or she raises his or her eyebrows.
C．what he or she likes best.
D．the way he or she talks.
69．People who live ______ are more friendly
A．in largely populated areas
B．in New York city
C．in the country
D．in the North
70.This passage might have been taken out of a book dealing with
D．none of the above
Over two thousand years ago Rome（罗马）was the center of a huge empire. The Romans needed a way to move their large armies quickly so that they could protect their huge country. They needed land trade routes, so they joined all parts of their empire by a net-work of roads（公路网）. Beginning in 300 B．C．, the Romans built roads in Europe, Asia and North Africa. By 200A.D., they had built 50, 000 miles of almost straight roads.
To build their roads, the Romans moved away all soft soil. They dug until they reached hard ground. Then they added layers（层）of stone and other things. The most important roads were paved（铺设）with large flat（平）stones. Main Roman roads were sometimes as wide as ours today.
To build their roads, the Romans sometimes had to dig tunnels through mountains. But they didn't have any machines to help them. So they heated the rock with fire and then threw cold water over it. When the rock cracked（裂）, they dug it out. Roman soldiers and slaves built the roads with their hands and simple tools, but the roads were so well built that they were used for hundreds of years.
71．The story tells us ______ .
A．building roads without modern machines was Roman soldiers’ only job
B．it was no easy job for the Romans to build their roads
C．people in advanced countries still use the old Roman way to build their roads today
D．most people in the African countries still use the old Roman way to dig their tunnels through the mountains
72．To build mountain roads, the old Romans had to ______ .
A．explode the rock before they started to dig
B．crack the rock with fire and cold water
C．dig through the hard rock with their hands
D．invent some machines to help them with the work
73．On the whole, the story is about ______ .
A．how to build up our modern roads today
B．Roman tools in building a wide straight road
C．the Romans’ roads built two thousand years ago
D．the reason why the Romans had to build their roads
74．Why did the Romans build so many roads at that time? It was because ______ .
A．their slaves and soldiers had to do something, or, they would have nothing to do
B．they dared not sail in the ocean and the roads were their only choice
C．they needed land trade roads and the roads to move their grand armies as quickly as possible
D．the old Romans wanted to show how clever they were in building the roads
75．According to the passage, which of the following four choices is correct?
A．The old Romans found soft soil did not make a solid base for the road.
B．The Romans built roads only on flat（平）land
C．Flat stones were mostly used in the roads of Asia
D．The old Romans used to make use of the soft soil for the base of their roads in North Africa
In sport the sexes（性别）are separate. Women and men do not run or swim in the same races. Women are less strong than men. That at least is what people say. Women are called the weaker sex, or, if men want to please them, the fair sex. But boys and girls are taught together at schools and universities. There are women who are famous Prime Ministers, scientists and writers. And women live longer than men . A European woman can expect to live until the age of 74, a man only until he is 68．Are women's bodies really weaker?
The fastest men can run a mile in under 4 minutes. The best women need 4．5 minutes. Women's time are always slower than men's, but some facts are a surprise. Some of the fastest women swimmers today are teenage girls. One of them swam 400 metres in 4 minutes 21．2 seconds when she was only 16．The first‘Tartan’in film was an Olympic swimmer, Johnny Weissmuller. His fastest 400 metres was 4 minutes 49．1 seconds, which is 37．9 seconds slower than a girl 50 years later! This does not mean that women are catching men up. Conditions are very different now and sport is much more serious. It is so serious that some women athletes are given hormone （荷尔蒙）injections（注射）. At the Olympics a doctor has to check whether the women athletes are really women or not. It seems sad that sport has such problems. Life can be very complicated（复杂的） when there are two separate sexes!
76．Women are called the weaker sex because ______ .
A．women do as much as men
B．people think women are weaker than men
C．sport is easier for men than for women

78．“That at least is what people say”means people ______ .
A．say other things , too
B．don't say this much
C．say this but may not think so
D．only think this
79．What problems does sport have?
A．Some women athletes are actually men.
B．Some women athletes are given hormone injections.
C．Women and men do not run or swim in the same races.
D．It is difficult to check whether women athletes are really women.
