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 following questions.
In most families, conﬂict is more likely to be about clothing, music, and leisure time than about more serious matters such as religion and core values. Family conﬂict is rarely about such major issues as adolescents’ drug use and delinquency. Nevertheless, it has been estimated that in about 5 million American families (roughly 20 percent), parents and adolescents engage in intense, prolonged, unhealthy conﬂict. In its most serious form, this highly stressful environment is associated with a number of negative outcomes, including juvenile delinquency, moving away from home, increased school dropout rates, unplanned pregnancy, membership in religious cults, and drug abuse (Steinberg & Morris, 2001).
Many of the changes that define adolescence can lead to conﬂict in parent- adolescent relationships. Adolescents gain an increased capacity for logical reasoning, which leads them to demand reasons for things they previously accepted without question, and the chance to argue the other side (Maccoby,1984). Their growing critical-thinking skills make them less likely to conform to parents’ wishes the way they did in childhood. Their increasing cognitive sophistication and sense of idealism may compel them to point out logical ﬂaws and inconsistencies in parents’ positions and actions. Adolescents no longer accept their parents as unquestioned authorities. They recognize that other opinions also have merit and they are learning how to form and state their own opinions. Adolescents also tend toward ego-centrism, and may, as a result, be ultra-sensitive to a parent’s casual remark. The dramatic changes of puberty and adolescence may make it difficult for parents to rely on their children’s preadolescent behavior to predict future behavior. For example, adolescent children who were compliant in the past may become less willing to cooperate without what they feel is a satisfactory explanation.
Question 30: What is the passage mainly about?
A. The dramatic changes of puberty and adolescence.
B. How to solve conﬂict in family.
C. The conﬂict in parent-adolescent relationship.
D. A satisfactory explanation for family conﬂict.
Question 31: According to the passage, what is probably TRUE about the conﬂict often arising in a family?
A. adolescents’ drug use and delinquency
B. clothing, leisure time and music
C. religion and core values
D. children‘s behavior

Question 33: Adolescents become less likely to comfort to parents’ wishes the way they did in the past because ________.
A. the environment is highly stressful
B. their critical-thinking skills is growing
C. it is related to drug abuse
D. parent-adolescent relationships lead to conﬂicts

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the answer to each of the question from 35-42
Educating children at home as an alternative to formal education is an option chosen by families in many parts of the world. The homeschooling movement is popular in the United States, where close to one million Children are educated at home. In Canada, 1 percent of school-age children are homeschooled, and the idea also enjoys growing popularity in Australia, where 20,000 families homeschool their children. The movement is not limited to these countries. Homeschooling families can be found all over the world, from Japan to Taiwan to Argentina to South Africa.
Homeschooling is not a novel idea. In fact, the idea of sending children to spend most of their day away from home at a formal school is a relatively new custom. In the United States, for example, it was not until the latter part of the nineteenth century that state governments began making school attendance compulsory. Before that, the concept of a formal education was not so widespread. Children learned the skills they would need for adult life at home from tutors or their parents, through formal instruction or by working side by side with the adults of the family.
In the modern developed world, where the vast majority of children attend school, families choose homeschooling for a variety of reasons. For people who live in remote areas, such as the Australian outback or the Alaskan Wilderness, homeschooling may be their only option. Children who have exceptional talents in the arts or other areas may be homeschooled so that they have more time to devote to their special interests. Much of the homeschooling movement is made up of families who, for various reasons, are dissatisfied with the schools available to them. They may have a differing educational philosophy, they may be concerned about the safety of the school environment, or they may feel that the local schools cannot adequately address their children’s educational needs. Although most families continue to choose a traditional classroom education for their children, homeschooling as an alternative educational option is becoming more popular.
