Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.

Normally a student must attend a certain number of courses in order to graduate, and each course which he attends gives him a credit which he may count towards a degree. In many American universities the total work for a degree consists of thirty-six courses each lasting for one semester. A typical course consists of three classes per week for fifteen weeks; while attending a university a student will probably attend four or five courses during each semester. Normally a student would expect to take four years attending two semesters each year. It is possible to spread the period of work for the degree over a longer period. It is also possible for a student to move between one university and another during his degree course, though this is not in fact done as a regular practice.

For every course that he follows a student is given a grade, which is recorded, and the record is available for the student to show to prospective employers. All this imposes a constant pressure and strain of work, but in spite of this some students still find time for great activity in student affairs. Elections to positions in student organizations arouse much enthusiasm. The effective word of maintaining discipline is usually performed by students who advise the academic authorities. Any student who is thought to have broken the rules, for example, by cheating has to appear before a student court. With the enormous numbers of students, the operation of the system does involve a certain amount of activity. A student who has held one of these positions of authority is much respected and it will be of benefit to him later in his career.

A) they hate the constant pressure strain of their study

What the drawing is trying to express is very conspicuous. It shows people who are energetically running, playing basketball, and doing other kinds of sports. Moreover, at the bottom of the picture are four huge characters, meaning “sports” and “health”, which targets at reminding us that sports and health are intrinsically connected.

Not only do sports benefit individuals, the improvement of the nation’s health would be a huge contribution to our country’s development.

这幅图试图表达的信息是非常明显的。上面画着人们在精力充沛地跑步、打篮球、以及做其他各种运动。此外,在图的底部写着四个巨大的,意思是“运动”和“健康”,意在提醒人们运动和健康是有着内在的紧密联系的。

在当今社会,大多数人越来越意识到保持健康的重要性,这样才能够享受更好的生活质量和长寿。为了得到一个健康的身体,我们不仅不要保持营养的饮食、充分的睡眠等,更重要的是人们应该养成有规律地锻炼身体的习惯。一方面,运动可以大大改善人们的新陈代谢系统,是人们的身体结构更加强壮。另一方面,运动能够帮助人们在夜以继日的脑力劳动后振奋精神,更惊人的是,锻炼身体可以使我们的大脑更加积极和富有创意地工作。

总的来说,我坚信运动不仅仅是运动员的事情,更是每一个人一生应该坚持牢记在心和努力实践的事情。不仅个人可以从运动中获益,整体国民健康的提高对于我们国家的发展是一个巨大的贡献。
