Lines Answers Hibernation Syndrome I don’t know about you, but come to the winter months, my body 0 to seems to require more sleep than in summer and I’m definitely at 00 √ my happiest when I’m being curled up in a hedgehog-style ball. 1 ‘Wanting to sleep more in winter is not natural and nothing to 2 worry about, unless you are sleeping for more than twelve hours a 3 day,’ says sleep expert Dr James B. Maas. The reason for we feel 4 drowsy has as much to do with our biochemistry as it does so with 5 wanting to sniggle up like a couch potato indoors. ‘It’s all to do 6 with melatonin,’ explains Dr Maas, ‘a hormone with which is 7 secreted by the brain’s pineal gland in response to darkness’. 8 They may feel more sleepy, but as many people find getting to 9 sleep in winter is a problem. It’s hardly surprising. When lounging 10 around indoors drinking mugs of warming up coffee and snacking 11 on chocolate bars doesn’t always prepare you for a good 12 night’s rest. If you do have trouble nodding off, Deepak Chopra 13 has this tip: ‘Try a soothing mix of the sweet and sour 14 essential oils, such as orange, geranium and clove are mixed with 15 almond oil and rubbed it on to your forehead just before bedtime.’ 16 SECTION THREE: READING (5.5 pts).

Line Author Message 1 In my opinion, you don’t inherit beauty from your parents. Beauty is a virtue Quest4life that you have to search for on your own. Anyone can wear cosmetics and look glamorous on the outside. To find inner beauty, one must go on a quest, making personal transformations along the way. 5 The standards of beauty seem to change every day. Today a woman with a Glamorgal tattoo is beautiful. Tomorrow a tattoo is too masculine and she’s having it removed. There is too much pressure to be beautiful in our society. Instead of marketing beautiful bodies, magazines should promote healthy living 10 Young@heart To me, beauty is an everlasting thing. It doesn’t matter if your skin sags or your hair turns gray. While some people are reluctant to show their true age, I think genuine people are the most beautiful. The most beautiful thing in the world is financial freedom. Money can buy a $$$hungry product that guarantees to make you look younger or more feminine. My goal 15 is to be rich first and beautiful second. If you have money, the world will be a more bearable place. 1. What does ‘transformations’ in line 4 mean? A. Goals B. Friends C. Changes D. Decisions 2. What does ‘sags’ in line 10 mean? A. Hangs down B. Looks dirty C. Gets wrinkled D. Turns red 3. Who believes that beauty lasts forever? A. Quest4life B. Glamorgal C. Young@heart D. $$$hungry 4. What opinion does Quest4life express? A.

For example, in the 1950s, young people around the world dressed like Elvis Presley. B. They usually like the same type of music and wear the same style of clothing. C.

Fashion is the most important thing that young people think of every day. THE POWER OF FASHION Fashion is something we think about every day. ....(0)....H.... But they still choose clothes every morning that say a lot about them and how they feel. ...(1)............ They want to wear up-to-date clothes that make them feel good.

He wanted other countries to know about Paris fashions, so he sent fashion dolls to Europe. Dressmakers could then copy the clothes, footwear and hats on the dolls. In recent years, music, films, videos, books and TV have all influenced what people wear. ... (3)............ Then in the 1990s, hip hop was very popular and young people dressed in baggy trousers and hooded tops and boots. Ray-Ban sold thousands of pairs of sunglasses after Will Smith wore them in the film Men In Black. If he’d worn a different type of sunglasses, they would have become popular instead. Young people often choose their clothes in order to be part of a group. The members of the group have the same interests, and have names such as goths, skaters or rappers. ...(4)............ If a young person is a goth, for example, they wear black clothes. If somebody is a rapper, they often wear baggy jeans and lots of jewellery. Style can show what kind of music you like, or what group you belong to. ...(5)............ In the 1970s, people wore badges to show what they thought about important issues. In the 1990s, Katherine Hamnett, a top British fashion designer, became popular when her T-shirts with messages such as ‘Preserve the rainforests’ were worn by different rock bands. In 2005, people at the Live 8 concerts wore white wrist- bands with the message ‘Make poverty history’. The truth is the fashion industry is huge. Millions of people around the world are involved in the buying, selling and production of clothing. Of course, advertising is important too. ...(6)............
