The agricultural revolution in the nineteenth century involved two things: the invention of labor-saving machinery and development of scientific agriculture. Labor-saving machinery naturally appeared first where labor was scarce. “In Europe,” said Thomas Jefferson, “the object is to make the most of their land, labor being abundant; here it is to make the most of our labor, land being abundant”. It was in the United States, therefore, that the great advances in 19th century agricultural machinery first came.

At the opening of the century, with the exception of a crude plough, farmers could have carried practically all of the existing agricultural implements on their backs; by 1860, most of the machinery in use today had been designed in an early form. The most important of the early inventions was the iron plough. As early as 1790 Charles Newbold of New Jersey had been working on the idea of a cast-iron plough and spent his entire fortune in introducing his invention. The farmers, however, were not interested in it, claiming that the iron poisoned the soil and made the weeds grow. Nevertheless, many people devoted their attention to the plough, until in 1869 James Oliver of Indiana turned out the first chilled-steel plough.

1. What is the main topic of the passage?

A. The need for agricultural advances to help feed a growing population.

B. The development of safer machines demanded by the labor movement.

C. Machinery that contributed to the agricultural revolution.

A. Europe was changing more quickly than the United States.

B. Europe had greater need of farm machinery than the United States did.

C. The United States was finally running out of good farmland.

D. There was a shortage of workers on the United States farms.

3. What point is the author making by stating that farmers could carry nearly all their tools on their backs?

A. Farmers had few tools before the agricultural revolution.

B. People in the United States were traditionally self-reliant.

C. Life on the farm was extremely difficult.

D. New tools were designed to be portable.

4. According to the passage, which of the following statements about Charles Newbold is true?

A. He was James Oliver’s assistant.

B. He spent his own money to promote his invention.

C. He was opposed to scientific agriculture.

D. He was born in Europe.

Some recent research into conversation between men and women has produced results which will surprise few women. Men are always interrupting women when they talk. One researcher feels that men regard female talk as a kind of conversational housework. They expect women to play a supporting role. So a man interrupts in a display of dominance or control. Men also have a much more unpleasant listening style. Whereas a woman uses gestures or says “Mm”, a man will say such things as “right” or “OK”, thus, setting the stage for an interruption. Conversation of this kind is, then, hardly meaningful communication. Male talk is often argumentative while women are more tentative, asking more questions and tending to build up their replies on what the other person has said. The research would indicate that women are better listeners than men. Yet, listening secretly to conversations between groups of women, one has the impression of several simultaneous monologues into which no man would be able to get a chance to speak.

1. According the writer, men feel that women’s conversation is only a support to their own.

2. The conversation between men and women is not meaningful communication because men do not really listen to what women are saying .

3. The research shows that males are better at listening than females.

4. Men asked more questions and build up their replies on other people’s responses.

5. The writer says that when women talk together, they seem to talk at the same time.
