[A Family Trip to the City]

[Father talking about the trip:] Well, I guess the day was a success. It
was Sunday and I would rather have stayed at home, but at least we enjoyed
the day as a family, and Tom and Cindy got to do something they wanted to
do. The train ride into town in the morning was pleasant -- better than it
is on weekdays. It wasn't crowded at all and I had plenty of space. Plus,
by using the train, I didn't have to worry about parking. I could even
take a little nap on the way home. With all the shopping we did in the
afternoon, I needed that nap. Tom always wants to go by car. He says that
way you don't have to carry all the stuff you buy. Either way, shopping
always makes me so tired. I can't stand all the walking, standing and
waiting, and I think it is dangerous to drive when you are tired. I was a
bit disappointed that we didn't have time to go to the bookstore. That was
the thing I wanted to do the most. But we got winter clothes for the
children, which was my wife's main purpose. Tom was happy that we got to
meet the professional ball players. He even got some autographs. And Cindy
got some new clothes and a pair of boots. I would have preferred something
other than hamburgers and fries for lunch, since this was a chance for my
wife and me to enjoy a nice restaurant.

[Daughter talking about the trip:] The day wasn't as bad as I thought it
would be. I mean, I always like going into the city -- I just don't like
going with Mom and Dad. I especially hate going with my little brother.
The train ride was terrible. Dad was happy because he was able to read his
newspaper. But it was so embarrassing when he turned the pages. He made so
much noise that people turned and looked at us. Um, let's see... getting
the autographs from the baseball players wasn't as boring as I thought it
was going to be, even though it took up the whole morning. It was part of
a special event for fans hosted by a big department store and was a really
big deal for my little brother. The autographs kept him happy all day. All
he ever thinks about is baseball... and hamburgers! Luckily, it was held
at the department store where we went shopping so we didn't have to go
anywhere else. I wanted to shop more for clothes -- well, I mean the
clothes that I want. Mom made us try on the clothes she choose. She gets
really tense and stressed out about getting clothes for us. I never like
what she chooses and she won't let me create my own style. So I was really
surprised when, at the last store, she let me pick out a new pair of
winter boots in the style that I wanted. I think she is relieved now,
because she has winter clothes ready for my brother and me. This is one of
the biggest things she has to do each year and now she is finished with
it. And it is good that Dad did help her. But we ran out of time and
couldn't stop at the furniture store. Mom and Dad had been talking about
getting a new carpet for a long time. So, all in all, the day wasn't so
bad, but next time, I want to choose my own clothes.

問1 The father enjoyed the train ride because [ 41 ].
{1} he didn't have to stand in line
{2} he had enough room to relax
{3} it was cheaper on weekends than on weekdays
{4} there were not many embarrassing people

問2 The daughter didn't like the train ride because [ 42 ].
{1} her brother didn't want to carry the bags
{2} her father drew the attention of other passengers
{3} her father was tired from shopping and took a nap
{4} the clothes her mother selected were too heavy to carry

問3 The day's activities included [ 43 ].
{1} a baseball game, a hamburger lunch, and shopping
{2} an autograph event, lunch, and clothes shopping
{3} an event with some baseball players, a quick lunch, and buying a carpet
{4} visits to a bookstore, the furniture store, and an expensive shoe store

問4 The mother was probably satisfied with the day because [ 44 ].
{1} everyone was happy about the restaurant they went to
{2} she got winter clothes for the children in time
{3} she was able to complete her shopping for the entire year
{4} the father decided to do something he had been talking about

問5 Which of the following illustrations most accurately shows the
results of the day in the city? [ 45 ]

(図はここでは省略します)
