Read the passage and choose the best answer to each of the questions that follow.

In the second millennium, one frequently asked a question is: What are the limits of the human body? Is there a point at which it is physically impossible to do something?

"One thing we’ve all learned in the last 30 years or so is to just about anything is humanly possible," says Dr. Jack Wilmore from Texas A&M University and author of The Physiology of Sport and Exercise, part of which examines the limits of the human body.

As the new millennium progresses. I think you'll see more records continue to fall in every sport. The talent pool is better than ever. Never before have so many good athletes competed, and not just in this country, but all over the world. With more people involved and competing, records will fall and new standards will be set.

Many believed that it was physically impossible for a human to run a mile in under four minutes, but Roger Bannister proved that theory wrong with three minutes, 59-second mile (1.609 kilometers) in 1954. Today, sub-four-minute miles are considered routine even in high school. And Bob Beamon stretched human performance in the 1968 Olympics with his historic long jump of 8.9027 meters. In an event in which a record is usually broken by mere inches, he shattered the previous jump by 0.6096 meters, but even his record was broken in 1991.

“We’ve all seen reports of people doing superhuman feats of strengths under duress, such as a man lifting a car off a child,” Wilmore adds, “So we know that the human body can do things that go far beyond normal activity. That’s why it’s foolish to say any record can’t be broken.”

One additional factor is just now becoming more understood and heavily emphasized: sports psychology. Getting inside the athlete’s head can be as effective as training and long workouts.

According to Wilmore, the psychological aspect of sports should not be discounted because we now know what makes the athlete tick mentally can be all-important. He points out that “most professional teams have hired sports psychologists for their players. It’s just another way of tapping into a human’s full potential.

“In addition, every aspect of athletic – training, nutrition, injury treatment – is far better than ever been. Better coaching, training techniques, equipment, and other factors all contribute to making today’s athletes more competitive than ever,” he believes, “Children today tend to specialize in one or two sports instead of competing in several as was common twenty-five years ago,” Wilmore says. That means they start concentrating on a sport much earlier and more intensely, and they become much better at it.

Wilmore also says that the chances of women achieving new heights in athletics could be greater than men, as more women are now involved in sports than at any other time and they are starting at about the same age as boys, meaning they are more skilled than the previous generation of girls. “Plus, women are taller and stronger than ever. It used to berate to see a girl who towered above you. Now it seems like you see them every day.”

“There’s a lot we don’t know yet about the human body,” he adds, “And one of those things is the full range of human potential. It can be foolish to try and put limits on what the human body can do.

What is the topic of the reading passage?

  • the physical limitations of a human body
  • the physical potential of the human body
  • records of physical achievements that the human body can perform
  • reasons why modern sportspeople perform better than they did previously

What initial comment does Dr. Jack Wilmore make?

  • There will always be limits to what the human body can achieve.

  • athletes are now being given mental as well as physical training by experts
  • experts have begun to highlight the need for more unusual workouts
  • coaches have begun to realize the importance of more intensive training
  • coaches now encourage athletes to unwind between training sessions

According to Dr. Wilmore, how are today’s children different from those years ago?

  • They participate in far more sports.
  • They begin sports at a much earlier age.
  • They become more proficient in their chosen sports.
  • They are more likely to become professional athletes.

  • perform equally well whether they are tall or short
  • have physically developed and advanced over the years
  • now have the same chance as boys of realizing their potential
  • are beginning to play sports at a much younger age than boys

What conclusion does Dr. Wilmore make?

  • We try to push the human body to its limits at our peril.
  • We should not prejudge what might be beyond our physical capabilities.
  • We need to do more research into what the human body is capable of.
  • We must congratulate ourselves on what athletes have achieved so far.

Humans are (0. PROPORTION) disproportionately right-handed. Scientists have not been able to agree over the exact percentages of right versus left-handers because there is no accepted standard for identifying which hand is (DOMINATE) . For example, some people who write or throw with their right hands may perform other tasks with their left hands or may kick a ball with their left foot. Absent an objective measure, therefore, the range of (ESTIMATION) is wide. Right-handers are said to make up 85% to 95% of all people and left-handers 5% to 15%, while the (REMAIN) tiny percentage are (EXTERITY) , so they can use both hands with equal ability. Perhaps the most unusual fact about right-hand dominance is how little we know about its causes. Several theories have been proposed. Some evidence exists the phenomenon is genetic, but (GENE) cannot agree on the process by which handedness may be passed only by (INHERIT) . Social and cultural forces can also cause a (PREFER) for one hand, as when teachers or parents force a naturally left-handed child to use the right hand. And it has been observed by (ANTHROPOLOGY) the left-handedness tends to be less common in (RESTRICT) societies and more common in (PERMIT) ones. But no consensus has been reached on how that could occur.
