An American friend hasinvited you to visit his family. You’ve never been to an American’s homebefore, and you are not sure what to do. Don’t worry! When you’re the guest,you should just make yourself at home.
The question of whetheror not to bring a gift often gives guests a headache. In American culture, it’snot a must－do thingto bring a present. Of course, some people do bring some small gifts likeflowers, candies or—if the family has small children－toys. If you choose not to bring a gift, don’tworry. No one will even notice.
American hospitality（好客）begins at home. MostAmericans agree that good home cooking beats restaurant food any day. Wheninvited for a meal, you might ask.
“Can I bring anything?”If it’s not a potluck, where everyone brings a dish, the host will possiblyanswer, “No, just yourself.” For most informal dinners, you can just wear comfortableclothes. Remember to arrive on time, or call to tell your hosts that you may belate.
During the dinnerconversation, it’s polite to say the food is nice. After dinner, you can helpclear the table or wash the dishes. But since you are the guest, your hosts maynot let you. Instead, they may invite everyone to move to the living room todrink some tea or coffee. If the hosts are not smokers, you shouldn’t smoke intheir house. And, above all, don’t go around looking at the house if you are notinvited. After about an hour of chat, it’s time to say good－bye. You don’t want to wear outyour welcome.

60.A 细节题。原文中虽然提到If it’s not a potluck,…will possibly answer, “No, just yourself.”，但抽出句子细节，potluck受到了where everyone brings a dish的修饰。所以判断答案为A。

Do you believe that onlyboys do well in science? Does it seem to you that girls have better languageskills than boys? In your opinion, are boys better at building things? If youranswer to each of those questions is “Yes,” you are right, according to anarticle in Current Science.” There are exceptions（例外）, but here are the facts.
Usually, boys scorehigher on tests about math, while girls do better in tests about words,spelling and memory. But these differences may not always be true. In the future,a person’s abilities may not be decided by sex. As one scientist says, “Nothingis impossible for a person to be or do.”
A recent study by JeromeKagan, a scientist at Harward University is studying the watching ability ofchildren 10 months old. Baby boys and baby girls are watching a “show” whileseated on their mothers’ laps. In Act I of the show, an orange－colored hall is lifted from ablue box and moved slowly. Then it is returned to the box. This is repeated sixtimes. Act II is almost the same, except that the orange ball is smaller.
Baby boys do notseem to notice the difference in the size of the ball, but girls immediatelybecome excited and begin to make noises that sound like language.
It’s also known thatbaby girls usually talk at an earlier age than baby boys do. Scientists believethat the left side of the brain develops faster in girls than in boys. As a result,by the time they start to school, little girls have an advantage that boys don’thave, but what have the boys been doing in the year before starting school?They have been developing something called aggression. An aggressive personfeels strong and independent. He is often the first one to start a fight. It issaid that aggression is caused by hormones（荷尔蒙）.Scientists believe that hormones are not the only cause. They sayaggression in boys is also caused by mothers.
