Section B

Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.

FROM THE CHINESE PRESS (Grandma's not-so-happy tale)

An old villager traveled all the way from Hubei province to Nanjing, Jiangsu Province to see his grandchild. But his son, instead of letting him spend time with his grandchild, put him up in hotel. The old man felt humiliated because he thought his son had treated him indifferently because he was poor. The son should definitely be criticized for his action, but at the same time it is important to analyze the incident rationally, says an article in Qilu Evening News. Excerpts: The case of the old man from Hubei is another tragic Chinese family drama. Chinese tradition does not allow a son to shut out his father from His family. But condemning the son's action without knowing the details may not be a good idea.

It indeed was inappropriate for the son not to take his father to his house. But it is equally inappropriate to accuse him of being heartless for picking up his father at the railway station and putting him up in a hotel. It is possible that the son had private reasons for not taking his father home. Perhaps he didn't want to burden his father with additional worries that he could have felt had he gone to his house.

We should not jump to conclusions without knowing why the son didn't take the old man to his house. It is not rational to say that the son is ashamed of his father because he is a poor rural resident. When facts are not clear, making efforts to find them is more important than leveling accusations against a person.

 

65. Which of the following words can be used to replace the underlined word “rational” in Paragraph 3? A. Sensible. B. Unreasonable.         C. Reachable.          D. Sensitive.

66. Which of the following is correct according to the passage?

A. The old villager traveled all the way to borrow money from his son.

B. The son should be accused of being heartless whatever the reason is.

C. It is not proper for the son not to take his father to his house even if there is some reason.

D. The son is ashamed of his father just because he is a poor rural resident.

67. According to the writer's analysis, we should ________.

A. help the son to explain the reason to the public

B. find out the reason why the son treated his father like that

C. criticize the son for his action

D. draw the conclusion that the son's behavior is against Chinese tradition

68. The writer's attitude toward the son's way of treating his father is ________.

A. critical                B. favorable    C. objective       D. negative
