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.

This picture describes the scene of a very typical family workshop which we might find in every neighborhood in China. A woman is busy making beancurd _______ her husband runs to her hilariously, saying that they have finally obtained the “sanitation license”. However, we find the condition of their workplace is quite disgusting, with flies _______[circle] and a hogpen nearby.

  The sanitation problem of family workshops in the food industry has existed for a long time. It can be mainly attributed to two factors. The first and perhaps key factor is the _______[ignore] of sanitation. Many workshops are inherited family businesses, and thus the owners are used to following traditional craftwork that pays no attention to sanitation. The other reason lies on some businessmen’s short of occupational disciplines. In order to save cost and make profit, they adopt the worst equipment in dirty conditions, regardless of consumers’ health. _______ has been proved that food produced in poor sanitary condition can greatly affect people’s health and happiness.

  For the sake of benefiting people’, our government has initiated aggressive programs to advocate the importance of sanitation. Illegal food workshops with unhealthy surrounding should never connive, but should be severely punished and _______[force] closed.
