Another experiment presented three groups of subjects with the same photographs！but each
group was in a different kind of room—an “ugly” room like a messy storeroom！an average room！

As a professor at a large American university, there is a phrase that I hear often from students:“I’m only a 1050.”The unlucky students are speaking of the score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), which is used to determine whether they will be admitted to the college or university of their choice, or even have a chance to get a higher education at all. The SAT score, whether it is 800, 1100 or 1550, has become the focus at this time of their life.
It is obvious that if students value highly their test scores, then a great amount of their self-respect is put in the number. Students who perform poorly on the exam are left feeling that it is all over. The low test score, they think, will make it impossible for them to get into a good college. And without a degree from a prestigious university, they fear that many of life’s doors
will remain forever closed.
According to a study done in the 1990s, the SAT is only a reliable indicator of a student’s
future performance in most cases. Interestingly, it becomes much more accurate when it is set together with other indication—like a student’s high school grades. Even if standardized tests like
the SAT could show a student’s academic proficiency？学业水平，, they will never be able to test
things like confidence, efforts and willpower, and are unable to give us the full picture of a student’s potentialities？潜力，.This is not to suggest that we should stop using SAT scores in our college admission process. The SAT is an excellent test in many ways, and the score is still a useful means of testing students. However, it should be only one of many methods used.
16. The purpose of the SAT is to test students’ ________________.
A. strong will B. academic ability
C. full potentialities D. confidence in school work
17. Students’ self-respect is influenced by their ________________.
A. scores in the SAT B. achievements in mathematic
C. job opportunities D. money spent on education
18.“A prestigious university”is most probably _________________.
A. a famous university B. a technical university
C. a traditional university D. an expensive university
19. According to the passage, American students can go to university if they _________.
A. do poorly in SAT
B. do well in SAT
C. have a strong will power
D. have enough confidence
20. This passage is mainly about_______________________.
A. how to prepare for the SAT B. stress caused by the SAT
C. American higher education D. the SAT and its effects
The literal meaning of philosophy is “love of wisdom”. But this meaning does not tell us
very much. Unlike the other disciplines？学科，, philosophy cannot be defined by what you
study ,because it is actually unlimited. Anything can be the subject matter of philosophy: art, history, law, language, literature, mathematics, and in fact, the other academic disciplines are directly related to philosophy. For this reason you get a Doctorate？博士学位，of Philosophy (Ph.
D.) in biochemistry, or computer science, or psychology.
Two broad sub-fields of philosophy are logic and the history of philosophy. Logic is the science of argument and critical thinking. It provides sound methods for distinguishing good from bad reasoning. The history of philosophy involves the study of major philosophers and of the development of philosophy.
Of what use is philosophy? First it is useful in educational advancement. It is necessary for understanding other disciplines. Only philosophy questions the nature of the concepts used in a discipline, and its relation to other disciplines. And through the study of philosophy, one develops sound methods of research and analysis that can be applied to any field.
There are a number of general uses of philosophy. It strengthens one’s ability to solve
problems, to communicate, to organize ideas and issues, to persuade, and to take what is the most important from a large quantity of data. These general uses are of great benefit in the career field, not necessarily for obtaining one’s first job after graduation, but for preparing for positions of
responsibility, management and leadership later on. It is very shortsighted after all, to take a course of studies only for the purpose of getting one’s first job. The useful skills developed through the study of philosophy have significant long-term benefits in career advancement. No other discipline systematically follows the ideals of wisdom, leadership, and capacity to resolve human conflict.
21. According to Paragraph 1, philosophy can best be described as the study of ____________.
A. social sciences B. natural sciences
C. both social and natural sciences D. the subject matter of politics
22. With the study of philosophy, you can _______________.

A. Philosophy is an independent discipline.
B. Logic helps you to become a better thinker.
C. The study of philosophy brings you immediate benefits.
D. The meaning of philosophy is too limited to define.
24. According to the author, which discipline will help you most in helping you resolve human conflict better,?
A. Biochemistry B. Computer Science C. Philosophy D. Psychology
25. From the passage, we can conclude ________________.
A. not all the subjects have to do with philosophy
B. a person will get a Ph. D. if he/she studies philosophy
C. philosophy can be helpful for the study of any other subjects
D. philosophy is the only solution to all the problems in the world

The money and the time we spend on pets is simply not our own to spend as we like in a time
of widespread want and starvation. A 46 organization advertises that for $33 a month they
can give hospital care to a child suffering from kwashiorkor-the severe deficiency disease 47 is simply a starving for protein. Doing 48 such a pet, and then sending the money saved to a
relief organization would mean 49 a life-over the years, several human lives.
Children not 50 from such a grave disease could be fed with half that amount-not on a
diet like ours, but on plain, basic, life-sustaining food. It is not unreasonable to believe 51 the amount of money we spend on the average pet dog could keep a child 52 in a region of great poverty. 53 what we would spend on a cat might not feed a child, but it 54 probably pay for his medical care or basic education. The point needs no 55 . That is all that need be said. 46. A. relied B. fund C. domestic D. medical
