Part 6: Read the passage and then answer the questions below. Many countries face a somewhat more serious economic problem in the form of an u nfavorable trade balance with other nations. Such an imbalance exists when the total value of a country’s imports exceeds that if its exports. For example, if a country buys$25 billion in products from other countries, yet sells only $10 billion of its own products oversea, its trade deficit is$15 billion. Many underdeveloped nations find themselves in this position because they lack natural resources or the industrial capacity to use these resources, and thus have to import raw materials or manufactured goods. One effect of a trade deficit is the flow of currency out of a country. In the case of an underdevel oped nation, this can cause many financial difficulties, including failure to meet debt payments and obstacles to creation of an industrial base. Even in the case of a fully developed nation such as the United States, a large trade deficit is reason for alarm. American products, made by well-paid workers in U.S. industries, cost more to produce than those made in places like Asia, where labor and material costs are much lover. Money spent on foreign products is money not spent on items produced by domestic industries. 1. What does the passage mainly discuss? A. Several worldwide economic problems B. The causes and consequences of trade deficits C. Lack of resources in underdeveloped countries D. The value of exports versus imports. 2. According to the passage, when does a trade imbalance occur? A. A country has a serious economic problem B. A country sells more products overseas than its imports. C. The value of the products a country imports is greater than the value of the products it exports. D. A country cannot develop its natural resources. 3. The passage states that many underdeveloped nations have traded deficits because A. they find themselves in this position B. they export most of their natural resources to other nations C. they have to import most of their natural resources or manufactured products D. they have failed to meet debt payments 4. Which of the following is not mentioned as a possible cause of a trade imbalance? A. Low labor and material costs in Asian countries. B. A lack of natural resources. C. An underdeveloped industrial base. D. The high cost of exported items. 5. It can be inferred from this passage that American industries A. do not pay their workers sufficient wages B. are hurt by trade imbalance C. import labor and material from overseas D. provide a strong industrial base that prevents a trade deficit.
