选项:
A:正确
B:错误
答案: 【错误
分析:【The author “worry that the dominant society may see Chinese people from a limited perspective, hedging us in with the stereotype”, which “may lead to actual intolerance and be part of the reason why there are few Chinese in top management positions, or in the main judiciary or political sectors” (Para. 22). Actually, the remarks that Chinese people are modest and discreet are “only the crust of the interaction, or what is said from the polite distance of social contexts” (Para. 26). They are only a stereotype of Chinese people’s exterior behavior.】

B:错误
答案: 【正确
分析:【According to the author’s mother, “if you don’t breach the old rules of etiquette and say you want it, they won’t ask you again” at the dinner table in America (Para. 8).

选项:
A:正确
B:错误
答案: 【错误
分析:【According to the author, this generalization “is not a true composite of Chinese culture but only a stereotype of our exterior behavior” (Para 26). These ideas about Chinese culture in American society “are not representative of new ideas, honest emotions, or considered thought” (Para 26).】
