Part 3: Read the following passage and choose the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the following question. Write your answers at the end of this part. (1.0 point)

Sleep is a natural process, and although a lot have been written about the subject, it is still surrounded by mystery. It is used by some as an escape from the world, and regarded by others as an irritating waste of time: some people get by on very little, others claim they can not exist without at least ten hours, but nobody can do without sleep completely.

Our night's sleep does not just consist of a steady phrase of gradually deepening sleep. It alternates between two stages: Non-dreaming or ordinary sleep, and REM (rapid eye movement) or dreaming sleep. As soon as we fall asleep, we go straight into non-dreaming sleep for an hour or so, then into REM sleep for about 15 minutes, then back into non-dreaming sleep. It alternates in this way for the rest of the night, with non-dreaming sleep tending to last longer at the beginning of the night. Non-dreaming sleep occupies. three quarters of our night's sleep, about a quarter of it deep and the rest fairly light.

It is widely believed that sleep repairs the body and makes good the damage caused by being awake. However, its main function is to refresh the brain. Experts believe that probably only about two-thirds of our sleep is necessary for repairing and refreshing the brain, with the most valuable sleep coming in the first few hours of the non-dreaming period, the last few hours of sleep are not so essential. The brain can manage quite well with reduced sleep as long as it is uninterrupted sleep.

The quality of sleep is important. A study conducted in the USA looked at short sleepers, who slept for 5.5 hours on average, and long sleepers, who had 8.5 hours or more. It is discovered after a variety of tests that the long sleepers were poor sleepers, had twice as much REM sleep as the short sleepers, appeared to sleep longer to make up for the poor sleep, and did not wake up in the morning refreshed. Similarly, people who sleep deeply are not necessarily getting a better quality of sleep than shallow sleepers. Deep sleepers can feel tired the following day, so six hours of good sleep is worth more than eight hours of troubled sleep.

Question 16. It can be concluded from the first passage that

A. people need equal time of sleep

B. sleep is among the processes of the nature

C. sleep remains a puzzle

D. everything about sleep has been brought to light

Question 17. All the following are true, EXCEPT for

A. we spend only 25 percents of our night's sleeping time to dream

B. our night's sleep occurs in a straight line of only two phases

C. all sleeps are similar in the alternatives of the two stages during the night

D. we often have no dreams after we fall asleep

Question 18. Unlike the common belief, sleep helps

A. not to be awake

C. our brain to rest and recover

Question 19. It can be inferred from the experts' ideas that

A. Nearly 70% of our sleep is invaluable

B. REM makes good our brain

C. Dream enables our body to refresh

B. us to repair our body

D. us to fix the damage happening by day

D. if we can sleep uninterruptedly, it is not necessary to sleep the whole night

Question 20. The study in the USA suggested that

A. the fewer hours we sleep, the more we dream

B. the type of sleep is more important than its length

C. Deep sleep means better sleep

D. Six hours of sleep is better than eight hours.
