Task 2

     Reading is one kind of entertainment. Newspapers and magazines are often called the print media, But the print media

    do not operate just to entertain people with interesting news and beautiful pictures. They exist to make money.

     Big, thick newspapers and magazines are sold in America very cheaply because most publishers make their money from selling advertising space to business. And on Sundays most newspapers include their own kind of bright colored magazine, with lots of expensive advertising. They must sell advertising space to survive.

     By the way, the United States Government is one of the largest publishers in the united States, but it is not allowed to produce any newspaper or news magazine to be sold or given to the general American public. However, various government departments provide free materials to help in completing tax forms, advice on how to buy a used car, reports of scientific research done by government scientists, and so on. Each state prints many things to promote their state as a good place to visit, to live, and to do business, etc.

Task 4

    Girls are interested these days in the question of paying for outings when with a boy. Often girls today earn as much or

    more than the boy they go out with. There is no reason why a girl earning money should not either pay a share of expenses or

    take a turn at paying the bill. We are moving towards equal pay for equal work, and it seems unreasonable to expect the boy

    always to pay for two. People have a fear of appearing ungenerous (吝啬), and often the less money they have, the more they fell in that way. A boy finds it difficult to invite a girl to a show or a dance and then ask her to pay, but there is no reason why

    a girl should not offer to pay her share. Or she could pay for the fact that a girl may refuse an invitation from a boy, I think

    her pride might suffer more than a boy’s if a boy refused an invitation from her. And a boy might find it hard to refuse a girl’s

    invitation even if he wished to do so. Anyhow, I think we have to get used to the idea of equality in spending if we have

    equality in earning.

    36. What’s the question that interests girls these days?

     They are interested in ___________________________________________.

    37. What does the author mean by “pay a share”?
