 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 36 to 45.
Most Americans still get married at some point in their lives, but even that group is
shrinking. Among current generations of adult American - starting with those born in 1920s more than 90 percent have married or will marry at some point in their lives. However, based on
recent patterns of marriage and mortality, demographers calculate that a growing share of the
younger generations are postponing marriage for so long that an unprecedented number will
never marry at all.
More Americans are living together outside of marriage. Divorced and widowed people are
waiting longer to remarry. An increasing number of single women are raising children. Put these
trends together with our increasing life expectancy, and the result is inevitable. Americans are
spending a record low proportion of their adult lives married.
Married rates for unmarried men and women have dropped from their post-195Os high to
record lows. Part of this fall is due to the change in the age at which people first marry. The median
age at first marriage is the age by which half the men or women who will ever marry have done so.
It fell almost continuously from the time it was first measured, in 1890, at 22.0 years for women
and 26.1 for men, to a low of 20.3 for women and 22.6 for men between 1947 and 1962. Since then,
it has risen at a rapid pace, to a record high for 23.8 for women and 26.2 for men in 1994.
The length of time between marriages is also increasing, and more divorced people are
choosing not to remarry. In 1990, divorced men had waited an average of 3.8 years before
remarrying, and divorced women had waited an average of 3.5 years, an increase of more than one
year over the average interval in 1970.
Data on cohabitation and unmarried childbearing suggest that marriage is becoming less
relevant to Americans. 2.8 million of the nation's households are unmarried couples, and one-third
of them are caring for children, according to the Census Bureau.
Question 36. The passage supports all of the following statements EXCEPT_________.
A. Americans are spending fewer years married than they did in the past.

 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 46 to 50.
In the mid - nineteenth century, the United States had tremendous natural resources that
could be exploited in order to develop heavy industry. Most of the raw materials that are valuable
in the manufacture of machinery, transportation facilities, and consumer goods lay ready to be
worked into wealth. Iron, coal, and oil - the basic ingredients of industrial growth - were plentiful
and needed only the application of technical expertise, organizational skill, and labor.
One crucial development in this movement toward industrialization was the growth of the
railroads. The railway network expanded rapidly until the railroad map of the United States looked
like a spider's web, with the steel filaments connecting all important sources of raw materials,
their places of manufacture, and their centers of distribution. The railroads contributed to the
industrial growth not only by connecting these major centers, but also by themselves consuming
enormous amounts of fuel, iron, and coal.
Many factors influenced emerging modes of production. For example, machine tools, the
tools used to make goods, were steadily improved in the latter part of the nineteenth century always with an eye to speedier production and lower unit costs. The products of the factories were
rapidly absorbed by the growing cities that sheltered the workers and the distributors. The
increased urban population was nourished by the increased farm production that, in turn, was
made more productive by the use of the new farm machinery. American agricultural production
kept up with the urban demand and still had surpluses for sale to the industrial centers of Europe.

The labor that ran the factories and built the railways was recruited in part from American farm
areas where people were being displaced by farm machinery, in part from Asia, and in part from
Europe. Europe now began to send tides of immigrants from eastern and southern Europe - most
of whom were originally poor farmers but who settled in American industrial cities. The money to
finance this tremendous expansion of the American economy still came from European financiers
for the most part, but the American were approaching the day when their expansion could be
financed in their own "money market".
Question 46. What does the passage mainly discuss?
A. The history of railroads in the United States
B. The major United States industrial centers
C. Factors that affected industrialization in the United States
D. The role of agriculture in the nineteenth century
Question 47. The word "themselves" in the paragraph 2 refers to_________.
A. sources
B. centers
C. railroads
D. places
Question 48. According to the passage, all of the following were true of railroads in the United
States in the nineteenth century EXCEPT that
A. they connected important industrial cities
B. they were necessary to the industrialization process
C. they were expanded in a short time
D. they used relatively small quantities of natural resources
Question 49. Which of the following in NOT true of United States farmers in the nineteenth
century?
A. They lost some jobs because of mechanization
B. They were unable to produce sufficient food for urban areas
C. They raised their productivity by using new machinery
D. They sold food to European countries
Question 50. The word "ran" in the paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to_________.
A. operated
B. hurried
C. constructed
D. owned
_________THE END_________
