Reading 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 1 to 8.
You can usually tell when your friends are happy or angry by the looks on their faces or by their actions.
This is useful because reading their emotional expressions helps you to know how to respond to important
situations and to convey our intentions to others. But does raising the eyebrows and rounding the mouth
say the same thing in Minneapolis as it does in Madagascar ? Much research on emotional expressions
has centered on such questions.
According to Paul Ekman, the leading researcher in this area, people speak and understand substantially
the same “facial language”. Studies by Ekman’s group have demonstrated that humans share a set of
universal emotional expressions that testify to the common biological heritage of the human species.
Smiles, for example, signal happiness and frowns indicate sadness on the faces of people in such far-flung
places as Argentina, Japan, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Sumatra, the United States, Vietnam, the jungles of
New Guinea, and the Eskimo villages north of Artic Circle. Ekman and his colleagues claim that people
everywhere can recognize at least seven basic emotions : sadness, fear, anger, disgust, contempt,
happiness, and surprise.
There are, however, huge differences across cultures in both the context and intensity of emotional
displays – the so-called display responses – expecially negative ones – while many American children are
encouraged to express their feelings more openly. Regardless of culture, however, emotions usually show
themselves, to some degree, in people’s behavior. From their first days in life, babies produce facial
expressions that communicate their feelings.
The ability to read facial expressions develops early, too. Very young children pay close attention to
facial expressions, and by age five, they nearly equal adults in their skill at reading emotions on people’s
faces. This evidence all points to a biological underpinning for our abilities to express and interpret a
basic set of human emotions. Moreover, as Chales Dawin pointed out over a century ago, some emotional
expressions seem to appear across species boundaries. Cross-cultural psychologists tell us that certain
emotional responses carry different meanings in diferrent cultures. For example, what emotion do you
suppose might be conveyed while sticking out your tounge ? For American, this might indicate disgust,
while in China it can signify surprise. Likewise, a grin on an American face may indicate joy, while on a
Japanese face it may just as easily mean embarrassment. Clearly, culture influences emotional

answer for each question from 46 to 50.
Successful students often do the followings while studying. First they have an overview before
reading. Next, they look for important information and pay greater attention to it (which often needs
jumping forward or backward to process information). They also relate important points to one another.
Also, they activate and use their prior knowledge. When they realize that their understanding is not good,
they do not wait to change strategies. Last, they can monitor understanding and take action to correct or “
fix-up” mistakes in comprehension.
Conversely, students with low academic achievement often demonstrate ineffective study skills.
They tend to assume a passive role in learning and rely on others(e.g, teachers, parents) to monitor their
studying. For example, low-achieving students often do not monitor their understanding of content, they
may not be aware of the purpose of studying, and their show little evidence of looking back, or employing
“fix-up” strategies to fix understanding problems. Students who struggle with learning new information
seem to be unaware that they must extent beyond simply reading the content to understand and remember
it. Children with learning disabilities do not plan and judge the quality off their studying. Their studying
may be disorganized. Students with learning problems face challenges with personal organization as well.
They often have difficulty keeping track of materials and assignments, following directions, and
completing work on time. Unlike good student who employ a variety of study skills in a flexible yet
purposeful manner, low-achieving students use a restricted range of skills. They can not explain why
good study strategies are important for learning, and they tend to use the same, often ineffective, study
approach for all learning tasks, ignoring task content, structure of difficulty.
