III. Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each question (10 points):
	Commuting is the practice of travelling a long distance to a town or city to work each day, and then travelling home again in the evening. The word commuting comes from commutation ticket, a US rail ticket for repeated journeys, called a season ticket in Britain. Regular travelers are called commuters.
	The US has many commuters. A few, mostly on the East Coast, commute by train or subway, but most depend on the car. Some leave home very early to avoid the traffic jams, and sleep in their cars until their office opens. Many people accept a long trip to work so that they can live in quiet bedroom communities away from the city, but another reason is “white flight”. In the 1960s most cities began to desegregate their schools, so that there were no longer separate schools for white and black children. Many white families did not want to send their children to desegregated schools, so they moved to the suburbs, which have their own schools, and where, for various reasons, few black people live.
	Millions of people in Britain commute by car or train. Some spend two or three hours a day travelling, so that they and their families can live in suburbia or in the countryside. Cities are surrounded by commuter belts. Part of the commuter belt around London is called the stockbroker belt because it contains houses where rich business people live. Some places are becoming dormitory towns, because people sleep there but take little part in local activities.
	Most commuters travel to and from work at the same time, causing the morning and evening rush hours, when buses and trains are crowded and there are traffic jams on the roads. Commuters on trains rarely talk to each other and spend their journey reading, sleeping or using their mobile phones, though this is not popular with other passengers. Increasing numbers of people now work at home some days of the week, linked to their offices by computer, a practice called telecommuting.
	Cities in both Britain and the US are trying to reduce the number of cars coming into town each day. Some companies encourage car pooling (called car sharing in Britain), an arrangement for people who live and work near each other to travel together. Some US cities have a public service that helps such people to contact each other, and traffic lanes are reserved for car-pool vehicles. But cars and petrol/gas are cheap in the US, and many people prefer to drive alone because it gives them more freedom. In Britain many cities have park-and-ride schemes, car parks on the edge of the city from which buses take drivers into the centre.
66. All of the following are measures to reduce the number of cars coming into town each day in the US and / or Britain EXCEPT_______.
	A. car pooling/sharing	B. traffic lanes for car pooling
	C. park-and-ride schemes	D. free car parks in the city centre 
67. The word “desegregate” in paragraph 2 most probably means_______.
	A. end racial discrimination 	B. become worse in quality
	C. improve the quality	D. begin to re-equip
68. As mentioned in the passage, commuters usually_______.
	A. talk to each other during train journeys	B. go to work at different hours
	C. cause traffic congestion on the roads	D. go home from work at different hours

	A. It surrounds London.	
	B. It is like “bedroom communities” in the US.
	C. It is home to some wealthy business people.	
	D. It is in central London.
70. It can be inferred from the passage that dormitory towns in Britain are places where people_______.
	A. take part in local activities	B. contribute to the local community
	C. are employed locally	D. stay for the night	
71. The passage mentions that many Americans are willing to travel a long distance to work in order to be able to live in _______.
	A. comfortable bedrooms 	B. quiet neighborhoods 
	C. city centers	D. noisy communities

	A. driving alone	B. car pool	C. travelling together	D. petrol/gas

	B. Britain has considerably more commuters than the US.
	C. Commuting helps people in the US and Britain save a lot of time.
	D. The US has considerably more commuters than Britain.
