Reading Comprehension

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.

   In only two decades Asian Americans have become the fastest-growing U.S. minority (少数民族). As their children began moving up through the nation's schools, it became clear that a new class of academic achievers was emerging. Their achievements are reflected in the nation's best universities, where mathematics, science and engineering departments have taken on a decidedly Asian character. This special liking for mathematics and science is partly explained by the fact that Asian-American students who began their educations abroad arrived in the U.S. with a solid grounding in mathematics but little or no knowledge of English. They are also influenced by the promise of a good job after college. Asians feel there will be less unfair treatment in areas like mathematics and science because they will be judged more objectively. And the return on the investment in education is more immediate in something like engineering than with an arts degree.

Most Asian-American students owe their success to the influence of parents who are determined that their children take full advantage of what the American educational system has to offer. An effective measure of parental attention is homework. Asian parents spend more time with their children than American parents do, and it helps. Many researchers also believe there is something in Asian Culture that breeds success, such ideals that stress family values and emphasize education.

Both explanations for academic success worry Asian Americans because of fears that they feed a typical racial (种族的) image. Many can remember when Chinese, Japanese and Filipino immigrants (移民) were the victims of social isolation. Indeed, it was not until 1952 that laws were laid down giving all Asian immigrants the right to citizenship.

31. While making tremendous achievements at college, Asian-American students ______.

(A) feel they are mistreated because of limited knowledge of English

(B) are afraid that their academic successes bear a strong Asian character

(D) generally feel it a shame to have to depend on their parents

32. What are the major factors that determine the success of Asian Americans?

(A) A solid foundation in basic mathematics and Asian Americans?

33. Few Asian-American students major in human sciences mainly because ______.

(A) their English is not good enough

(B) they are afraid they might meet with unfair judgement in these areas

(C) there is a wide difference between Asian and Western cultures

(D) they know little about American cultures and Western cultures

34. Why do the two "explanations" (Para. 3, Line 1) worry Asian Americans?

(A) They are afraid that they would again be isolated from American society in general.

(B) People would think that Asian students rely on their parents for success.

(C) Asian American would be a threat to other minorities.

(D) American academic achievements have taken on too strong an Asian character.

35. The author's tone in this passage is _____.

(A) sympathetic         (B) doubtful               (C) critical            (D) objective
