。 Britains most popular lie has been discovered, with one in four people admitting using Sorry I had no signal when returning a missed mobile phon-高三英语

阅读理解。      Britain's most popular lie has been discovered, with one in four people admitting using "Sorry
I had no signal" when returning a missed mobile phone call, a survey found.
     According to a recent survey people usually use this little white lie after they hit the "ignore"
button when their mobile rang. The second most common fib is "I haven't got any cash on me"
when asked for money by beggars. Modern technology is a major excuse in many of our lies with
"I didn't get your text" in 18th, "Our server was down" in 20th and "My battery died" in 26th place.
     Researchers found the average Briton tells on average four lies every day or almost 1500 every
year. One in three Britons have lied about their weight, a quarter have fibbed about the amount of
debt they are in and 30 percent have bent the truth about the amount of exercise they do.
     Almost a quarter of men have told their wife or girlfriend they look good in an outfit, despite
thinking the opposite. More than 40 percent of women have admitted lying about how much new
clothes actually cost while 30 percent have fibbed about how much they've had to drink.
     Three quarters of people think women are better liars. The research found 46 per cent of girls
have been caught lying, compared to 58 of men. Men tell the most fibs, coming out with five every
day compared to women who lie just three times.
     A spokesman for one poll, which carried out the research of 4,300 adults, said, "As a nation we
are obsessed with trying to be nice and not upsetting people. Often little white lies are used to cover
what we actually want to say."
     "Most of these were considered either completely harmless or necessary depending on the situation
in which they are delivered." He added, "It was sad to see a string of compliments in the top 50, but
once again in many cases perhaps it is better to compliment(恭维) with a lie than destroy someone
with the truth." 1. What is the best title for the passage? A. The most popular British lies
B. British people like to lie
C. The reasons British people lie
D. Technology makes us lie   2. According to the research, what do women most frequently lie about?  ______ A. Their weight.
B. The amount of their debt.
C. Their drinking habits.
D. The cost of their clothing.   3. Which of the following statement is true according to the research?  ______ A. Three quarters of women are better liars.
B. Men lie more often than women.
C. More men are better liars than women.
D. More women lie than men.   4. The underlined phrase "obsessed with" is closest in meaning to ______.   A. very concerned with
B. surprised about
C. opposed to
D. not interested in   5. Why do people usually lie according to the one poll?  ______ A. To prevent argument with their partners.      
B. To avoid speaking with others on the phone.
C. To avoid hurting others.
D. To destroy others.
