D. Answer the questions(根据短文内容回答下列问题)(12分)
Music not only gives you something to sing and dance to, but also can make you
feel happier. Scientists say that music can help to relax people's mind and even help to
relieve pain. How does music work its magic? It is the fact that music can adjust(调节) about music. The studies have shown that when people are excited or happy they are more
helpful. The opposite(相反的情况)happens when people feelaggressive(好斗的)or under stress. The use of music can influence how helpful people can be.
Dr. Adrian North made a study with 256 university students. Half the group took exercise in the gymnasium listening to music which can bring happiness and the other half exercised to aggressive music. When leaving the gym, the students were asked to hand out flyers(传单)insupport of the local disabled athlete's foundation(残疾运动员基金会).
The results showed that nearly half of the group that listened to happy music were willing to(愿意)hand out flyers. But less than 20% in the group that heard the aggressive music were willing todo so. This study suggests that our choice of music can influence our willingness to cooperate(合作).While a study also shows that productivity(生产效率)can be increased with the right choiceof background music in the workplace. As music stimulates(刺激)workers' mind, job satisfactionis often positively influenced. Other studies have shown that workers who are in a good moodhave more job satisfaction than those in a bad mood.
