In the late 1970s and early 1980s there<br /> was a huge decline in the number of elephants due to the increase in poaching.

But<br /> <br /> Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the<br /> correct answer to each of the questions.<br /> Until recently, most American entrepreneurs were men. Discrimination against women in business,<br /> the demands of caring for families, and lack of business training had kept the number of women<br /> entrepreneurs small. Now, however, businesses owned by women account for more than $40 billion in<br /> annual revenues, and this figure is likely to continue rising throughout the 1990s. As Carolyn Doppelt<br /> Gray, an official of the Small Business Administration, has noted, "The 1970s was the decade of women<br /> entering management, and the 1980s turned out to be the decade of the woman entrepreneur". What are<br /> some of the factors behind this trend? For one thing, as more women earn advanced degrees in business<br /> and enter the corporate world, they are finding obstacles. Women are still excluded from most executive<br /> suites. Charlotte Taylor, a management consultant, had noted, "In the 1970s women believed if they got<br /> an MBA and worked hard they could become chairman of the board. Now they've found out that isn't going<br /> to happen, so they go out on their own".<br /> In the past, most women entrepreneurs worked in "women's" fields: cosmetics and clothing, for<br /> example. But this is changing. Consider ASK Computer Systems, a $22-million-a-year computer software<br /> business. It was founded in 1973 by Sandra Kurtzig, who was then a housewife with degrees in math and<br /> engineering. When Kurtzig founded the business, her first product was software that let weekly<br /> newspapers keep tabs on their newspaper carriers-and her office was a bedroom at home, with a<br /> shoebox under the bed to hold the company's cash. After she succeeded with the newspaper software<br /> system, she hired several bright computer-science graduates to develop additional programs. When these<br /> <br /> were marketed and sold, ASK began to grow. It now has 200 employees, and Sandra Kurtzig owns $66.9<br /> million of stock.<br /> Of course, many women who start their own businesses fail, just as men often do. They still face<br /> hurdles in the business world, especially problems in raising money; the banking and finance world is still<br /> dominated by men, and old attitudes die hard. Most businesses owned by women are still quite small. But<br /> the situation is changing; there are likely to be many more Sandra Kurtzigs in the years ahead.<br /> Question 36. What is the main idea of this passage?<br /> A. Women today are better educated than in the past.<br /> B. The computer is especially lucrative for women today.<br /> C. Women are better at small businesses than men are.<br /> D. Women today are opening more businesses of their own.<br /> Question 37.
