America's foods began to affect the rest of the world - not only raw staples such as wheat

and corn, but a new American cuisine that spread throughout the world. American emphasis on

convenience and rapid consumption is best represented in fast foods such as hamburgers, French

fries, and soft drinks, which almost all Americans have eaten. By the 1960s and 1970s fast foods

became one of America's strongest exports as franchises for McDonald's and Burger King

spread through Europe and other parts of the world, including the former Soviet Union and

Communist China. Traditional meals cooked at home and consumed at a leisurely pace -

common in the rest of the world, and once common in the United States - gave way to quick

lunches and dinners eaten on the run as other countries mimicked American cultural patterns.

By the late 20th century, Americans had become more conscious of their diets, eating

more poultry, fish, and fresh fruits and vegetables and fewer eggs and less beef. They also began

appreciating fresh ingredients and livelier flavor, and cooks began to rediscover many world

cuisines in forms closer to their original. In California, chefs combined the fresh fruits and

vegetables available year-round with ingredients and spices sometimes borrowed from

immigrant kitchens to create an innovative cooking style that was lighter than traditional French,

but more interesting and varied than typical American cuisine. Along with the state's wines,

California cuisine eventually took its place among the acknowledged forms of fine dining.

 A. are traditional meals of the US people

 B. McDonald's and Burger King are American food suppliers successful in Europe and other

parts of the world.

 C. Traditional meals cooked at home and consumed at a leisurely pace are not common in the


 D. Fast foods became one of America's strongest exports.

4. Which of the following statements is TRUE?

 A. By the late 20th century, fast foods had lost their popularity in the USA.

 B. Americans used to eat more poultry, fish, and, fresh fruits and vegetables than they do



 C. Cooking styles of other countries began to affect America's by the late 20th century.

 D. Fewer eggs and less beef in the American diet made them fitter.

5. An innovative cooking style was created in California __________.

 A. by borrowing recipes from immigrant kitchens

 C. and made the state's wines well-known

 D. by combining the local specialties with immigrants' spices

III. Read the passage below and choose the best answer to complete the following sentences.

Write your answers in the corresponding numbered box. (1.0 point)

Man is a land animal, but he is also closely tied to the sea. Throughout history, the sea has

served the need of man. The sea has provided man with food and a convenient way to travel to

many parts of the world. Today, nearly two thirds of the world’s population live within 80 kms

off the sea coast.

In the modern technological world, the sea offers many resources to help mankind survive.

Resources on land are beginning to be used up. The sea, however, still can be hoped to supply

many of man’s needs. The list of riches of the sea yet to be developed by man’s technology is

impressive. Oil and gas explorations have been carried out for nearly 30 years. A lot of valuable

minerals exist on the ocean floor ready to be mined.

Fish farming promises to be a good way to produce large quantities of food. The culture of

fish and shellfish is an ancient skill practised in the past mainly by Oriental people.

Besides oil and gas, the sea may offer new sources of energy. Experts believe that the warm

temperature of the ocean can be used in a way similar to the steam in a steamship. Ocean

currents and waves offer possible use as a source of energy.

Technology is enabling man to explore even more deeply under the sea. The development of

strong, new materials has made this possible.

The technology to harvest the sea continues to improve. Experts believe that by the year

2050s the problems that prevent us from fully exploiting the food, minerals, and energy sources

of the sea will be largely solved.
