III. Reading Comprehension: 
Questions 29-34 
        Fish contains lots of omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids have been shown to help prevent heart disease, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of strokes. Researchers suggest that these benefits of eating fish far outweigh the risks of getting sick from contaminated fish. 
         Ongoing studies find that omega-3 fatty acids work magic on the brain too. Pregnant? Go out and eat fish! One study tracked a group of expectant women who ate more than 340 grams of fish per week. It turns out they gave birth to children who, years later, scored really high on IQ tests. 
        How can you add fish to your diet? One way to begin is by replacing meat with fish in one meal a week. Instead of frying, which retains more fat, try broiling your fish in an oven or grilling it outdoors. And don’t be afraid to spice up your fish. Garlic, herbs and other spices can add wonderful flavors to fish. 
        For lighter meals, keep a few cans of tuna or other fish on hand at all times. They’re great for making tasty sandwiches or fish burgers. If you get hungry in the middle of the morning or afternoon, try tuna on crackers. It’s hard to find a better snack. And parents, be sure to introduce fish to your 
children. It’s important for them to get used to eating it at a young age.

Questions 35-40 
        Tea is central to Asian civilization. Chinese tea creates atmosphere of poetry. Whether a large tin pot of farmers or a small Kung-fu teapot of a businessman, we always drink tea by pouring it out of a pot. A pot of tea is inherently social: several family members, a group of workers on the farm, or a bunch of friends in a bull session. In short, there is always a small tight-knit group around a teapot. We treasure it as a symbol of happiness in our traditional value, whenever we drink together with from same pot. 
        In the year of 1600, during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, agents of the East India Co. discovered Chinese put some leaves into boiling water and drank the “tea”. They therefore learned how to drink tea. But since Westerners began drinking tea, they changed its social significance by inventing the tea bag. It made the process simpler, and saved tea leaves, if the group was smaller. Basically, the tea bag is a product for individual. What’s good for a pot of tea to a widow who lost her husband? Isn’t a bag of tea enough for a professor who enters his lab like he enters his castle? 
        It is not necessarily a less tasteful drink, which is brewed from the tea bag; it can still be used in social functions. But no matter how many bags we consume, we have a cup of tea in our hand by taking care of ourselves. The old Chinese saying: ”Such as drinking iced water in the winter, only you yourselves know if it is cold or warm,” may be changed to “Such as drinking tea of bag, only you yourselves know it is strong or weak.” Is simpler or individualism not good? We can definitely bear it, of course, but still lament something that might be disappearing forever.

(A)less than 410 years
