For each question or statement there are 4 choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the best answer. No one knows why we sleep, but it’s certain that we need to. People who are prevented from sleeping begin to suffer obvious effect after a few days—they think less clearly, and they fall asleep during the working hours. Some may have hallucinations 【幻觉】. There are no rules about sleep. Generally speaking, grown-ups sleep about seven and a half hours each night and probably more than 60 per cent get between seven and eight hours. But perhaps eight per cent are quite happy with 5 hours or less, and four per cent or so find that they want ten hours or more. If you feel all right, you’re probably getting enough sleep. The important thing is not to worry how much other people get —their needs may be different.

Children sleep more than grown-ups— perhaps fourteen to eighteen hours soon after birth, going down to grown-up levels by early teenage.
