As the pace of life continues to increase, we are fast losing the art of relaxation. Once you are in the habit of rushing through life, being on the go from morning till night, it is hard to slow down. But relaxation is essential for a healthy mind and body
Stress is natural part of everyday life and there is no way to avoid it. In fact, it is not the bad thing it is often supposed to be. A certain amount of stress is vital to provide motivation and give purpose to life. It is only when the stress gets cut of control that it can lead to poor performance and ill health.
The amount of stress a person can withstand depends very much on the individual. Some people are not afraid of stress, and such characters are obviously prime material for managerial responsibilities. Others lose heart at the first signs of unusual difficulties. When exposed to stress, in whatever form, we react both chemically and physically. In fact we make choice between “flight and fight” and in more primitive days the choices made the difference between life and death. The crises we meet today are unlikely to be so extreme, but however little the stress, it involves the same response. It is when such a reaction lasts long, through continued exposure to stress, that health becomes endangered. Such serious conditions as high blood pressure and heart diseases have established links with stress. Since we cannot remove stress from our lives (it would be unwise to do so even if we could), we need to find ways to deal with it.
People are finding less and less time for relaxing themselves because _______.
A. they do not know how to enjoy themselves
B. they are becoming busier with their work
C. they do not believe that relaxation is important for health
D. they are traveling fast all the time

A. having control over performance
B. knowing the art of relaxation
C. high sense of responsibility
D. not fearing stress
Which of the following statements is true?
A. We can find some ways to avoid stress.
B. Different people can withstand different amount of stress.
C. It is easy to change the habit of keeping oneself busy with work.
D. Stress is always harmful to people.
The phrase “such a reaction” most probably refers to _______.
A. responding to crises quickly
B. losing heart at the signs of difficulties
C. making a choice between “flight and fight”
D. reaction to crises both chemically and physically
In the last sentence of the passage, the phrase to do so” most probably means _______.
A. to remove stress from our lives
B. to find ways to deal with stress
C. to expose ourselves to stress
D. to establish links between diseases and stress

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 41 to 47
About two thirds of the world’s population live in what are loosely called “developing countries”. Of course, strictly speaking, all countries are developing, but the term is used to describe those which are undeniably poor. Although the rich countries have only about 34% of the world's population, they earn about 90% of the world's income. They also possess about 90% of the world’s financial resources, and more than 80% of the world's scientists and technicians. They produce 80% of the world's protein - including 70% of its meat - and they eat it.
Thanks to an impressive succession of agricultural revolutions, man's food-growing capacity is now hundreds of times larger than it was at the turn of the 20th century, and we are now feeding more people than at any time in history. Nonetheless, the number of hungry and malnourished people is also larger than at any time in history. Admittedly, total food production has increased since 1961 in most parts of the world. Yet, per capita food production is little changed from the inadequate levels of the early 1960s. In short, world and regional production have barely kept up with population growth.
There appear to be five food problems. First, there is the problem of quantity - of every human being getting enough calories to provide him with the energy to work and progress. Second, there is that of quality - of everyone getting enough protein, vitamins, and necessary minerals. Next, there is the matter of distribution: we have to find satisfactory ways of transporting, storing and issuing food. Then there is the problem of poverty: many people in developing countries do not have money to buy food in sufficient quantity and of sufficient quality. And last, we must find ways of avoiding ecological side-effects. In other words, we must be able to grow enough food without further degrading our land, water and air.
A number of proposals have been made to improve food quantity and quality. An obvious and very necessary one is to limit population growth. Another is to increase the amount of land under cultivation by clearing forests and by irrigating arid land. Furthermore, the ocean (comprising 70% of the Earth's surface) is a potential source of more food, and there have been developments recently in the use of non-conventional proteins and synthetic foods. And last, various attempts are being made to increase the yield per hectare by developing or selecting new genetic hybrids of plants (the “Green Revolution”), by increasing the use of fertilizers, water, pesticides and herbicides, and by using modern agricultural and management techniques in poorer countries.
What is probably a suitable title for the passage?
A. Feeding the World
B. The Success of the Green Revolution
C. Problems of Population Growth
D. Food Quantity and Quality
