Passage Ten

It seems that beauty and women are twins. You are joking? No, I am not. Observe for yourself. Ads on fashion flood TV screens, radio programs, magazines, newspapers, and the streets. Whether they have realized or not, women are besieged (包围)by a sea of fashion. They are taught to think that without beautiful clothes they will grow old and lose their charm. So who dares to neglect dressing up at the cost of their appearance and youth?

But I do not agree with the opinion that women have to show their beauty through their looks. The richness of their mind proves to be more beautiful and attractive than their looks. A woman who has experienced many troubles and may be called “aunt” or “granny” can still maintain her beauty if she has such excellent qualities as knowledge, ability, a kind heart, great courage and concern for others.

In addition, old and young, beautiful and ugly are relative concepts(概念). People who keep a young mind will never feel old. Curious about new things and eager to learn more, they keep up with the tide. Plainly dressed women may have a type of beauty, which is pure and real.

Readingand learning is the best way to keep one youthful. Good books are fertile(肥沃的)soil which can feed the flower of one’s heart and looks.

Passage Eleven

Some psychologists maintain that mental acts such as thinking are not performed in the brain alone, but that one's muscles also participate. It may be said that we think with our muscles in somewhat the same way that we listen to music with our bodies.

You surely are not surprised to be told that you usually listen to music not only with your ears but with your whole body. Few people can listen to music that is more or less familiar without moving their bodies or, more specifically, some parts of their bodies. Often when one listens to a concert on the radio, he is tempted to direct the band even though he knows there is a competent conductor on the job.

Strange as this behavior may be, there is a very good reason for it. One cannot get all possible enjoyment from music unless he participates, so to speak, in its performance. The listener “feels” himself into the music with more or less pronounced motions of his body.

The muscles of the body actually participate in the mental process of thinking in the same way, but this participation is less obvious because it is less pronounced.

A. not a mental process

    C. a process that involves the muscles as well as the whole body

    A. both are mental acts                                      B. muscles participate in both processes

    C. both processes are performed by the entire body   D. we obtain equal enjoyment from them

213. The pronounced body motions are a listener’s way of ______.

    A. “feeling” the music                                        B. participating in the performance

    C. deriving enjoyment from the music                 D. all of the above

214. Body movements are necessary in order for the listener to ______.

    A. hear the music                                 B. appreciate the music

    C. train the muscle                                D. figure out the real meaning of a piece of music

215. The best title for this selection is _______.

    A. An Ear for Music                             B. Music Appreciation

C. How Muscles Participates in Mental Acts 

D. A Psychological Definition of the Thinking Process
