The first copyright law in the United States was passed by Congress in 1790. In 1976 Congress enacted the latest copyright law, __26__ the technological developments that had occurred since the passage of the Copyright Act of 1909. For example, in 1909, anyone who wanted to make a single copy of a __27__ work for personal use had to do so by hand. The very process __28__ a limitation on the quantity of materials copied. Today, a photocopier can do the work in seconds; the limitation has disappeared. The 1909 law did not provide full protection for films and sound recordings, nor did it __29__ the need to protect radio and television. As a result, __30__ of the law and abuses of the intent of the law have lessened the __31__ rewards of authors, artists, and producers. The 1976 Copyright Act has not prevented these abuses fully, but it has clarified the legal rights of the injured parties and given them an __32__ for remedy.
Since 1976 the Act has been __33__ to include computer software, and guidelines have been adopted for fair use of television broadcasts. These changes have cleared up much of the confusion and conflict that followed __34__ the 1976 legislation.
The fine points of the law are decided by the courts and by acceptable common practice over time. As these decisions and agreements are made, we modify our behavior accordingly. For now, we need to __35__ the law and its guidelines as accurately as we can and to act in a fair manner.

Passage 1
In a study of older people with sisters and brothers, psychologist Debra Gold of the DukeCenter for the study of aging and human development found that about 20% said they werehostile or indifferent to ward their sisters and brothers. Reasons for this ranged frominheritance disputes to hostility between spouses. But, many of those who had poorrelationships felt guilty. Although most people admitted to some lingering rivalry, it was rarelystrong enough to end the relationship. Only four out of the 54 people interviewed hadcompletely broken with their sisters and brothers and only one of the four felt comfortable withthe break. As sisters and brothers advanced into old age, closeness increases and rivalrydiminishes, explains VC, a psychologist at Purdue University. Most of the elderly people heinterviewed said they had supportive and friendly dealings and got along well or very well withtheir sisters and brothers. Only 4% got along poorly. Gold found that as people age, they oftenbecome more involved with and interested in their sisters and brothers. 53% of those sheinterviewed said that contact with their sisters and brothers increase innate adulthood. Withfamily and career obligations reduced, many said that they had more time for each other. Others said that they felted with time to heal wounds. A man who had recently reconciled withhis brother told Gold there’s something that lets older people to put aside bad deeds of the pastand focus a little on what we need now, especially when it’s sisters and brothers.
16. What does the study by Debra Gold find about older people?
17. What has probably caused closeness to increase among sisters and brothers according toVC?
18. What did the man who had recently reconciled with his brother tell Debra Gold about olderpeople?
Passage 2
Monarch butterflies, the large origin black insects, are common summer sights in northernUnited States and Canada. They brighten in parks and gardens as they fly among the flowers. What makes monarch butterflies particularly interesting is they migrate, all the way toCalifornia or Mexico in back. They are thought to be the only insect that does this. Every year inthe late summer, monarch begin their migration to the south, those heading for Mexico gofirst for the Louisiana Mississippi region. And then they fly to go across Mexico into Texas. Oncein Mexico, they establish themselves in one of about 15 sizes in the mountain forth. Each sideprovides the winter home for millions of monarchs. The butterflies are so numerous that theyoften cover the entire trees. When spring comes, they began their long journey north. Thequestion is often asked whether every butterfly makes the round trip journey every year. Andthe answer is no. The average monarch lives about nine month. So when fly the north, theymight lay eggs in Louisiana and die. The eggs of that following generation may be found inKentucky, the eggs of next generation may be in the Kang Michigan. The last generation of theseason about the forth may make the journey back in Mexico and restart the cycle. Scientistslearn about the monarch butterflies’ migration by capturing and placing the identifying tags inthe insects. By recapturing the attempt of the monarch and noting where they came from, thenext scientist can figure out things like butterfly’s age and its routing
19. What is the unique about the monarch butterfly according to the speaker?
20. Where does the butterfly settle at the end of the migration?
21. What does the speaker say about the monarch butterflies’ reproduction?
22. What is the talk mainly about ?
Passage 3
People nowadays seem to have the sense that their time has become more limited. Comparedwith early generations we spend more and more time working and have less and less free timeto engage in leisure pursues. But this premise turns out to be an illusion. The mostcomprehensive data from major Time Use Service suggests, if anything, Americans today havemore free time than the early generations. The number of hours we work has not changedmuch, but we spend less time now on home tasks. So we have a great amount of time forleisure than in decades past. so why do we feel like time so scare. One problem is that timebecomes more valuable and time becomes more worth money. we feel like we have less of it. workers who bill or get paid by the hour, think employer and fast-food workers, report focusingmore on pursuing more money than those who get paid by salary and the fact has been fast. Inone experiment, people were told to play the role of consultant and bill their time by either ninedollars an hour or ninety dollars an hour. When people billed their time by ninety dollars anhour they report feeling far more priced for time. Thinking about our time as money, changesare our behavior as well. in one study, people who were instructed to think about money beforeentering a cafe spent less times chatting with the other patrons and more time working. Thosewho are thinking their time did reverse spending time socializing instead of working.
23. What does the speaker say now people feel about time?
24. What do the data from time use service show?
25. What happen when we think about our time as money?

  The first copy right law in the United States was passed by congress in 1790. In 1976, congress enacted the latest copy right law, taking into consideration the technological developments that had occurred since the passage of the copy right act of 1909. For example, in 1909 anyone who wanted to make a single copy of a literary work for personal use had to do so by hand. The very process imposed a limitation on the quantity of materials copied. Today, a photo copier can do the work in seconds. The limitation has disappeared. The 1909 Law did not provide full protection for films and sound recordings nor did it anticipate the need to protect radio and television. As a result, violations of the law and abuses of the intent of the law have lessened the financial rewards of authors, artists and producers. The 1976 copy right act has not prevented these abuses fully, but it has clarified the legal rights of the injured parties and given them an avenue for remedy. Since 1976 the act has been amended to include computer software and guidelines have been adopted for fair use of television broadcasts. These changes have cleared up much of the confusion and conflict that followed in the wake of 1976 legislation. The fine points of the law are decided by the courts and by acceptable common practice overtime. As these decisions and agreements are made, we modify our behavior accordingly.
