    You’re in a department store and you see a couple of attractive young women looking at a sweater. You listen to their conversation:

    “I can’t believe itLorenzo Bertolla! They are almost impossible to find. Isn’t it beautiful? And it’s a lot cheaper than the one Sara bought in Rome.”

    They leave and you go over to see this incredible sweater. It’s nice and the price is right. You’ve never heard of Lorenzo Bertolla, but those girls looked really stylish. They must know. So, you buy it. You never realize that those young women are employees of an advertising agency. They are actually paid to go from store to store, talking loudly about Lorenzo Bertolla clothes.

    Every day we notice what people are wearing, driving and eating. If the person looks cool, the product seems cool, too. This is the secret of undercover marketing. Companies from Ford to Nike are starting to use it.

    Undercover marketing is important because it reaches people that don’t pay attention to traditional advertising. This is particularly true of the MTV generationconsumers between the age of 18 and 34. It is a golden group. They have a lot of money to spend, but they don’t trust ads.

    So advertising agencies hire young actors to “perform” in bars and other places where young adults go. Some people might call this practice misleading, but marketing executive Jonathan Ressler calls it creative. “Look at traditional advertising. Its effectiveness is decreasing.” It is true, because everyone knows an ad is trying to persuade you to buy something. However, You don’t know when a conversation you overhear is just a performance. 

    24. The two attractive young women were talking so that they could          .

    A. be heard by people around            B. get the sweater at a lower price

    C. be admired by other shoppers          D. decide on buying the sweater 

    25. Lorenzo Bertolla is           .

    A. a very popular male singer            B. an advertising agency

    C. the brand name of clothes             D. a clothing company in Rome

    A. Traditional advertising will soon disappear in the market.

    B. The MTV generation tend to be more easily influenced by ads.

    C. Undercover marketing will surely be banned soon by the government. 

    D. Traditional advertising is becoming less effective because it’s too direct.

    Men weigh up potential partners almost instantaneously(瞬间地) based on their appearance because their “ancient” genetic preference for attractive mates leads them to, experts claim.

    According to research, a woman with an attractive face is taken by men to be fertile (能生育的) and able to continue the family line, appealing to the man’s survival instinct.

    In contrast women take longer to decide their feelings for a man because they need to weigh up whether he will be a committed partner who will provide for them well – part of their survival programming.

    They tested men and women’s preference towards looks by conducting a series of tests on 20 women and 20 men, making them perform tasks while recording their brain activity.

    While the subjects were doing the task they were shown a series of photographs of faces of the opposite sex, ranging from attractive to ugly.

    Men were easily distracted when they saw a pretty face but women stuck to the task.

    Prof van Vugt said: “Men definitely have the most wandering eye but it is because they have evolved to pay attention to cues of fertility and one of those cues is facial beauty – it’s not that men are shallow.”

    But we found they do make snap judgments about women, much earlier than was previously thought. They make that decision on whether a woman would be a good mating partner in milliseconds.

    This is something very ancient and a way of helping men find the best mate to produce children.

    Women were not distracted by attractive male faces because women need more proof of whether a man is a good mate.

    “Women make that decision on behaviour, whether a man is trustworthy and committed. They make their decision much later than men.”

    28. Men like the women whose faces are beautiful because they think          .  

    A. the women are very beautiful

    B. the women are the only they love

    C. the women can be liked by their families                            

    D. the women can continue their families line                         

    29. The underlined word “snap” may mean         .

    A. late                                                    B. quick            C. long                    D. clear

    30. It can be inferred that           .

    A. to find a best mate takes a man more time

    B. to find a best mate takes a woman more time

    C. to find a best mate isn’t important for a man

    D. to find a best mate isn’t important for a woman

    31. The main idea of the passage is            .

    A. that men love beauty because of gene 

    B. helping men find the best mate to produce children

    C. testing men and women’s preference towards looks

    D. that mem were easily distracted when they saw a pretty face

     Nearly two million drivers in the UK have had accidents due to “Baby on Board” signs and children’s toys that affect their view, according to alarming new research. One in 20 motorists says stickers and playtime paraphernalia (装备) are to blame for a collision—equivalent to 1.85 million of Britain’s 37 million drivers. The discovery triggered a warning by a road safety charity—Brake to cut down on clutter (杂乱的东西) in the car.

    Deputy chief executive Julie Townsend said “Baby on Board” signs were very useful in alerting the emergency services that a child may be involved in case of a crash. “This help can become negative if drivers display signs when their child isn’t in the car,” she said. “Worse still is the danger that can be caused by drivers influencing their view by cluttering up (塞满) windows with lots of signs. Drivers’ priority should always be getting there safely without putting themselves, young passengers or other road users at risk.”

    A survey arranged by price comparison website Confused.com found that 37 percent of parents have displayed signs and four out of five of them believe they improve safety. But 46 percent admit doing so at all times—regardless of whether or not their child is in the car—and 15 percent admit they only have them for their novelty value. The poll of 2,000 drivers also found that 46 percent of drivers regard them as a risk and 33 percent say they are lacking in taste.

    “There are benefits and dangers to ‘Baby on Board’ signs. They can offer useful information for medical aid in case of a crash but having too many novelty items displayed could be a safety issue,” said a Confused.com spokesman.

    32. What do we learn about the signs on the car from Paragraph 1?

    A. They can be dangerous.             B. They are useful to avoid accidents.

    C. They are welcomed by passengers.    D. They are forbidden to be used.

    33. What is Julie Townsend’s attitude towards the signs?

    A. Positive.      B. Negative.       C. Objective.         D. Uninteresting.

    34. According to the survey, most of the drivers who use the signs think that the signs_____.

    A. are unnecessary                B. can kill time

    C. can make drivers clear               D. can improve safety

    35. What is the purpose of this text?

    A. To solve a problem.                B. To describe a threat to traffic safety.

    C. To tell an interesting story.           D. To persuade drivers to drive safely.
