    Many years ago in Japan, a farmer and his wife had three children, two boys and a girl. The boys helped their parents on the farm. The girl was small and weak. She was often ill. She spent her time drawing cats. Her parents didn't like her, so they took her to the temple ( 寺庙 ) .

       In the temple the girl drew cats all day long. The other people in the temple tried to stop her, but she didn't listen. So they asked the girl to leave the temple.

         In the US, people prefer waiting for a table to sitting with people they don't know. If you are sitting at a table with people you don't know, it is impolite to light up a cigarette without first asking if it will disturb them. At American restaurants and coffee shops you are usually served tap water before you order. You may find the bread and butter is free, and if you order coffee, you may get a free refill. Most cities and towns have no rules about opening and closing times for stores or restaurants, though they usually do make rules for bars. Especially in large cities, stores may be open 24 hours a day. Servings in restaurants are often large, too large for many people. If you can't finish your meal but would like to enjoy the food later, ask your waitress or waiter for a "doggie bag". It may have a picture of a dog on it, but everybody knows you're taking the food for yourself. Supper and dinner are both words for the evening meal. Some people have "Sunday dinner". This is an especially big noon meal. Tips are not usually added to the check. They are not included in the price of the meal, either. A tip of about 15% is expected and you should leave it on the table when you leave. In some restaurants, a check is brought on a plate and you put your money there. Then the waiter or waitress brings you your change. 

    (     ) 10. Which statement is TRUE?

    A. American people like sitting with people they don't know.

    B. Americans prefer smoking to tap water at the restaurants.

    C. Bread and butter and coffee are free at American restaurants.

    D. American people usually will not smoke unless they ask for permission.

    (     )11. Sunday dinner is_______.

    A. a dinner in the evening       B. A big noon meal

    C. a big lunch on Sunday        D. A supper on Sunday

    (     ) 12.What do American people always do when servings are too large for    them? 

    A. They leave the food on the table and go away.

    B. They ask the waitress or waiter to keep the food.

    C. They take the food home with a "doggie bag" for their dogs.

    D. They take the food home with a "doggie bag" and enjoy the food later.
