1.
The railroad was not the first institution to impose regularity on society, or to draw attention to the importance of precise timekeeping. For as long as merchants have set out their wares at Line daybreak and communal festivities have been celebrated, people have been in rough agreement with their neighbors as to the time of day. The value of this tradition is today more apparent than ever. Were it not for public acceptance of a single yardstick of time, social life would be unbearably chaotic: the massive daily transfers of goods, services, and information would proceed in fits and starts; the very fabric of modern society would begin to unravel.

What is the main idea of the passage?

A.In modern society we must make more time for our neighbors.

B.The traditions of society are timeless.

C.An accepted way of measuring time is essential for the smooth functioning of society.

D.Society judges people by the times at which they conduct certain activities.

2.A few minutes ago, walking back from lunch, I started to cross the street when I heard the sound of a coin dropping. It wasn’t much but, as I turned, my eyes caught the heads of several other people turning too. A woman had dropped what appeared to be a dime.
The tinkling sound of a coin dropping on pavement is an attention-getter. It can be nothing more than a penny. Whatever the coin is, no one ignores the sound of it. It got me thinking about sounds again.

The sound of a coin dropping makes people …
      A. think of money

B.  look at each other.

C.  pay attention to it.

D. stop crossing the street.

3.In the more progressive schools throughout the world, attempts are being made to synthesize subjects previously taught separately. Examples of this are efforts to combine reading with literature and history with geography. In North America and Western Europe, innovation such as team teaching, the use of more teachers’ aides or clerks, and the establishment of ungraded school have been tried. Most significant and pervasive, however, has been the widespread and growing acceptance of the principle that elementary education should focus on activity and experience as well as on subject matter.

Which of the following most accurately summarizes the opinion of the author in the text?

A.Schools have introduced teaching in “practical” subjects along with the theoretical ones.
