A. which B. who C. what D. whose 二,阅读 (A) As nanny(保姆), cook, cleaner, shopper, driver, and gardener, she has one of the most demanding jobs in Britain today. And paying someone else to do the chores which take the average housewife 71 hours a week would cost 349. At over 18,000 a year that’s more than the earnings of 70 percent of the population, including train drivers, firemen, prison officers, and social worker. Looking after a baby less than a year old takes a housewife into a even higher pay league. According to a stud, she earns 457 a week – at nearly 24,000 a year, the same as teachers, engineers, and chemists. Researchers put a price on each chore, and then tried to find out how long the average person takes doing them.

They found housewives spend an average 70.7 hours a week on housework – with looking after the children (17.9 hours) and cooking and cleaning (12.9 hours each) the most time-consuming(费时). A wife with a part-time job still works and average of 59 hours a week at home. Those in full-time employment put in longer hours at home than in the workplace. The good news is that these hours sharply as children get older. While the average mother with child under one puts in 90 hours weekly, the figure drops to 80 hours from one to four and to 66 hours from five to ten. Mother-of-four Karen Williams from London said, “Paying the housewives may not be practical, but the government should recognize the value of housework, perhaps through the tax. Running a house takes a lot of time and most husbands don’t understand this. For example, my husband only puts a shelf up now and again. He never cleans the kitchen – that’s the real test.” 21. Who earns most according to the text? A. A social worker. B. A fireman. C. A gardener. D. A teacher. 22. We learn from the text that looking after children ______. A. takes more time than doing any other housework B. means more duties than being a teacher C. requires the mother to be well-educated D. prevents the mother from working outside 23. According to the text, a housewife with a baby less than one year old may work _____. A. 66 hours a week B. 71 hours a week C. 80 hours a week D. 90 hours a week 24. By mentioning her husband, Karen Williams wants to show that ______. A. housework is no easy job B. her husband has no time to clean the kitchen C. a housewife needs to be paid for cleaning D. the kitchen is hard to clean (B) Are you sometimes a little tired and sleepy in the early afternoon? Many people feel this way after lunch. They may think that eating lunch is the cause of the sleepiness. Or, in summer, they may think it is the heat. However, the real reason lies inside their bodies. At that time – about eight hours after you wake up – your body temperature goes down. This is what makes you slow down and feel sleepy. Scientists have tested sleep habits in experiments where there was no night or day. The people in these experiments almost always followed a similar sleeping pattern. They slept for one long period and then for one short period about eight hours later. In many parts of the world, people take naps(小睡) in the middle of the day. This is especially true in warmer climates, where the heat makes work difficult in the early afternoon. Researchers are now saying that naps are good for everyone in any climate. A daily nap gives one a more rested body and mind and therefore is good for health in general. In countries where naps are traditional, people often suffer less from problem such as heart disease. Many working people, unfortunately, have no time to take naps. Though doctors may advise taking naps, employers do not allow it! If you do have the chance, however, here are a few tips about making the most of your nap. Remember that the best time to take a nap is about eight hours after you get up. A short sleep too late in the day may only make you feel more tired and sleepy afterward. This can also happen if you sleep for too long. If you do not have enough time, try a short nap – even ten minutes of sleep can be helpful. 25. Why do people feel sleepy in the early afternoon according to the text? A. They eat too much for lunch. B. They sleep too little at night. C. Their body temperature becomes lower. D. The weather becomes a lot warmer. 26. If you get up at 6:30 am, what is the best time for you to take a nap? A. About 12:30 pm. B. About 1:30 pm. C. About 2:30 pm D. About 3:30 pm 27. What would be the best title for the text? A. Just for a Rest B. All for a Nap C. A Special Sleep Pattern. D. Taking Naps in Warmer Climate.
