2015年江苏自考学位英语考试辅导:阅读理解

Perhaps the most startling theory to come out of kinetics, the study of body movement, was suggested by Professor Ray Birdwhistell. He believes that physical appearance is often culturally programmed. In other words, we learn our looks—we are not born with them .A baby has generally unformed facial features. A baby, according to Birdwhistell, learns where to set the eyebrows by looking at those around—family and friends. This helps explain why the people of some regions of the United States look so much alike. New Englanders or Southerners have certain common facial characteristics that cannot be explained by genetics. The exact shape of the mouth is not set as birth, it is learned after. In fact, the final mouth shape is not formed until well after permanent teeth are set. For many, this can be well into adolescence. A husband and wife together for a long time often come to look somewhat alike. We learn our looks from those around us. This is perhaps why in a single country there are areas where people smile more than those in other areas. In the United States, for example, the South is the part of the country where the people smile most frequently. In New England they smile less, and in the western part of New York state still less. Many Southerners find cities such as New York cold and unfriendly, partly because people on Madison Avenus smile less than people on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia. People in densely populated urban areas also tend to smile and greet each other in public less than people do in rural areas and small towns.  

1. Ray Birdwhistell believes that physical appearance ______.  
has little to do with culture
can be influenced by culture
is ever changing
varies from place to place
BestAnswer:B
详解:B)。细节题。答案见第二句话。据此可知 A)错而B)对。C)和D)项从理论上说都是不言而喻的常识,它们在文中的出现是作为论据来支持论点B),而不是被多方论证的论点.故不选。
 

2.According to the passage, the final mouth shape is formed ______.  
before birth
as soon as one's teeth are permanently set
sometime after permanent teeth are set
around 15 years old
BestAnswer:C
详解:C)。细节题。答案见第10、1l行。据此可知人的最后嘴形既不是出生前,也不是牙齿最后固定时,更不是15岁左右形成的,而是在牙齿最后固定后的某个时间形成的,故C)正确。
 

3.Ray Birdwhistell can tell what region of the United States a person is from by ______.  
how much he or she laughs
how he or she raises his or her eyebrows
what he or she likes best
the way he or she talks
BestAnswer:A
详解:A)。推断题。C)“最喜爱之物”,D)“谈话方式”都未在文中提及,可排除。A)和B)都作为论据在文中出现,应具体分析它们与题目的关系。在文章后10行中,作者具体列举了来自美国各地区人们不同的微笑频率,据此可辨析人们各自的地域背景,因此A)“笑了多少”可回答问题,故为正确答案。而B)“人们扬眉的方式”在文中并未按地域一一列析,无从分辨。
 

4.People who live ______ are more friendly.  
in densely populated areas
in the country
in New York city
in the North
BestAnswer:B
详解:B)。细节题。详见最后一句。既然居住在人口稠密的城区里的人们比居住在乡郊和小城里的人较少地微笑和相互招呼,那么较友好的人群就应该是选项B)“在乡村”,而不是选项A)“人口稠密的地区”。同时,根据上文南北方的比较,纽约人和北方人较少微笑,当然看上去也就不那么友好了,故C)、D)不对。


5.This passage might have been taken out of a book dealing with _____.  
physics
biology
chemistry
none of the above
BestAnswer:D
详解:D)。推断题。本文讲述人的外表与文化的相互影响.自然不属于物理或化学范畴.故A)、B)不对。同时“biology(生物学)”,虽然包括对人的研究,但其研究范畴只覆盖人的生理构造及反应,并不包括本文所涉及的人与社会环境的关系这样的内弃,故C)不对,正确答案为D)。
