Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

Whether one is awake or asleep, the brain emits electrical waves. These waves occur in predictable sleep cycles that can be measured with an electroencephalograph, known more commonly as an EEG. During wakefulness, the waves are recorded at about ten small waves per second, but with the onset of sleep, the waves become larger and slower. The largest, slowest waves occur during the first three hours of sleep when mental activity slows down but does not stop. In fact, if awakened from slow-wave sleep, a person can often remember vague thoughts that occurred during that period of sleep, but the sleeper does not generally dream. Referred to as NREM or non-REM sleep, it is characterized by large, slow waves.

During sleep, intervals of small, fast waves also occur in patterns similar to those experienced while awake. The eyes move rapidly, and it appears to the observer that the sleeper is watching some event. Sleepers who are awakened during this rapid-eye-movement sleep will often recall the details of dreams they have been having. Sleep of this kind is called dreaming sleep or rapid-eye-movement sleep, also known as REM sleep. REM sleep is emotionally charged. The heart beats irregularly, and blood pressure may be elevated. In contrast, the body is so still that the dreamer may appear to be paralyzed.


between each one. Later instances of REM sleep are usually of longer duration than are instances earlier in the eight-hour period.

Since people who suffer sleep deprivation experience fatigue, irritability, and loss of concentration, we must conclude that sleep is essential because in some way it regenerates the brain and the nervous system. NREM sleep increases after physical exertion, whereas REM sleep tends to increase after a stressful day. Studies suggest that non-REM sleep may be especially helpful in restoring muscle control, whereas REM sleep may be more important in revitalizing mental activity. It appears that both kinds of sleep are necessary, and the recuperation of sleep of one kind will not compensate for a lack of the other kind of sleep.

A. To describe REM sleep B. To explain sleep deprivation

A. planned B. natural C. interesting D. necessary Question 37: Which response is NOT typical of REM sleep?

A. Irregular heartbeat B. Dreams and visions C. Movements in arms and legs D. Higher blood pressure Question 38: The word “it” refers to

A. deprivation B. the brain C. sleep D. concentration

Question 39: What does sleeplessness result in ?

A. tiredness, irritability, and loss of concentration B. fatigue, worry and loss of attention C. tiredness, irritability and concentration D. fatigue, irritability and concentration

Question 40: It can be inferred from the passage that students who are writing term papers A. require slow-wave sleep to increase mental activity

B. can stay up all night working and recover the sleep they need by sleeping for a few hours the next afternoon.

enjoyed the same level of success in negotiation in an international arena as have their foreign counterparts.

Negotiating is the process of communicating back and forth for the purpose of reaching an agreement. It involves persuasion and compromise, but in order to participate in either one, the negotiators must understand the ways in which people are persuaded and how compromise is reached within the culture of the negotiation.

In many international business negotiations abroad, Americans are perceived as wealthy and impersonal, it often appears to the foreign negotiator that the American represents a large multimillion- dollar corporation that can afford to pay the price without bargaining further. The American negotiator's role becomes that of an impersonal purveyor of information and cash, an image that succeeds only in undermining the negotiation.

In studies of American negotiators abroad, several traits have been identified that may serve to confirm this stereotypical perception, while subverting the negotiator’s position. Two traits in particular that cause cross-cultural misunderstanding are directness and impatience on the part of the American negotiator. Furthermore, American negotiators often insist on realizing short-term goals.

Foreign negotiators, on the other hand, may value the relationship established between negotiators and may be willing to invest time in it for long-term benefits. In order to solidify the relationship, they may opt for indirect interactions without regard for the time involved in getting to know the other negotiator.

Clearly, perceptions and differences in values affect the outcomes of negotiations and the success of negotiators. For Americans to play a more effective role in international business negotiations, they must put forth more effort to improve cross-cultural understanding.

Question 44: What is the author’s main point?

A. Negotiation is the process of reaching an agreement. B. Foreign languages are important for international business.

C. Foreign perceptions of American negotiators are based on stereotypes. D. American negotiators need to learn more about other cultures.

A. Training is not available for Americans who must interact in international negotiations. B. Foreign businesspersons negotiate less effectively than Americans because of their training.

C. Because their training is not as good, Americans are less successful as negotiators than their international counterparts.

D. Foreign businesspersons do not like to negotiate with Americans, who are not well trained.

Question 46: According to the author, what is the purpose of negotiation?

A. To undermine the other negotiator’s position B. To communicate back and forth C. To reach an agreement D. To understand the culture of the negotiators

Question 47: The word "undermining” is closest in meaning to

A. making known B. making clear C. making brief D. making weak Question 48: The word "that” refers to

A. bargaining B. role C. corporation D. price Question 49: According to the passage, how can American businesspersons improve their negotiation skills?

A.By living in a foreign culture B. By getting to know the negotiators C.By compromising more often D. By explaining the goals more clearly Question 50: The American negotiator is described as all of the following EXCEPT
