These days, most people in Britain and the US do not wear very formal clothes. But
sometimes it is important to wear the right thing.
Many British people don't think about clothes very much. They just like to be comfortable.
When they go out to enjoy themselves, they can wear almost anything. At theatres, cinemas and
concerts you can put on what you like from elegant suits and dresses to jeans and sweaters.
Anything goes, as long as you look clean and tidy.
But in Britain, as well as in the US, men in offices usually wear suits and ties, and women
wear dresses or skirts (not trousers). Doctors, lawyers and business people wear quite formal
clothes. And in some hotels and restaurants men have to wear ties and women wear smart dresses.
In many years, Americans are more relaxed than British people, but they are more careful
with their clothes. At home, or on holiday, most Americans wear informal or sporty clothes. But
when they go out in the evening, they like to look elegant. In good hotels and restaurants, men have
to wear jackets and ties, and women wear pretty clothes and smart hairstyles.
It is difficult to say exactly what people wear informal or formal in Britain and the US,
because everyone is different. If you are not sure what to wear, watch what other people do and then
do the same. You'll feel more relaxed if you don't look too different from everyone else.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the
correct answer to each of the questions from 35 to 42.
(1) Iron production was revolutionized in the early eighteenth century when coke was first
used instead of charcoal for refining iron ore. Previously the poor quality of the iron had restricted
its use in architecture to items such as chains and tie bars for supporting arches, vaults, and walls.
With the improvement in refining ore, it was now possible to make cast-iron beams, columns,
and girders. During the nineteenth century further advances were made, notably Bessemer’s
process for converting iron into steel, which made the material more commercially viable.
(2) Iron was rapidly adopted for the construction of bridges, because its strength was
far greater than that of stone or timber, but its use in the architecture of buildings developed more
slowly. By 1800 a complete internal iron skeleton for buildings had been developed in
industrial architecture replacing traditional timber beams, but it generally remained concealed.

Apart from its low cost, the appeal of iron as a building material lay in its strength, its resistance to
fire, and its potential to span vast areas. As a result, iron became increasingly popular as a structural
material for more traditional styles of architecture during the nineteenth century, but it was
invariably concealed.
(3) Significantly, the use of exposed iron occurred mainly in the new building types
spawned by the Industrial Revolution: in factories, warehouses, commercial offices, exhibition
hall, and railroad stations, where its practical advantages far outweighed its lack of status.
Designers of the railroad stations of the new age explored the potential of iron, covering
huge areas with spans that surpassed the great vaults of medieval churches and cathedrals.
Paxton’s Crystal Palace, designed to house the Great Exhibition of 1851, covered an area of 1.848
feet by 408 feet in prefabricated units of glass set in iron frames. The Paris Exhibition of 1889
included both the widest span and the greatest height achieved so far with the Halle Des Machines,
spanning 362 feet, and the Eiffel Tower 1,000 feet high. However, these achievements were mocked
by the artistic elite of Paris as expensive and ugly follies. Iron, despite its structural advantages, had
little aesthetic status. The use of an exposed iron structure in the more traditional styles of
architecture was slower to develop.
Question 35: What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. Advances in iron processing in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
B. The effects of the Industrial Revolution on traditional architectural styles.
C. Advantages of stone and timber over steel as a building material.
D. The evolution of the use of iron in architecture during the 1800’s.
Question 36: According to the passage, iron was NOT used for beams, columns, and girders prior
to the early eighteenth century because_______.
A. all available iron was needed for other purposes
B. limited mining capability made iron too expensive
C. iron was considered too valuable for use in public buildings
D. the use of charcoal for refining ore produced poor quality iron
Question 37: Iron replaced stone and timber in the building of bridges because iron was
considered_______.
A. more beautiful
B. new and modern
C. much stronger D. easier to transport
Question 38: The word “it” in paragraph 2 refers to_______.
A. industrial architecture
B. internal iron skeleton
C. stone
D. strength
Question 39: The word “surpassed” is closest in meaning to_______.
A. imitated
B. exceeded
C. approached
D. included
Question 40: According to paragraph 3, the architectural significance of the Halle Des Machines
was its _____.
A. wide span
B. great height
C. unequaled beauty
D. prefabricated unites of glass
Question 41: How did the artistic elite mentioned in the passage react to the buildings at the Paris
Exhibition?
A. They tried to copy them.
B. They ridiculed them.
C. They praised them.
D. They refused to pay to see them.
Question 52: It can be inferred that the delayed use of exposed iron structures in traditional
styles of architecture is best explained by the_______.
A. impracticality of using iron for small, noncommercial buildings
B. association of iron architecture with the problems of the Industrial Revolution
