       Read the following article in which four people talk about their work and life. For questions 61 to 64, match name of each speaker to one of the statements (A to F) given below. Mark your answers on your ANSWER SHEET.
 Joyce Swenson
     Joyce is 36 years old and has worked for a publishing company in New York City for II years. Presently, she is working as a Senior Editor in charge of developmental programs. An opening for a vice-presidential position has just opened. Joyce is one of four people applying for the position. The other three applicants1 are men who have been at the company approximately as long as she has. The requirements for the job include a Master ' s degree and a minimum of ten years experience working as a manager in a publishing company. Historically, the company has hired from within. Joyce has applied2 for promotions4 before but she has been passed over each time by a male candidate. When Joyce joined the company, she was single. Now she is married and has two school-age children and one preshooler. Joyce feels she has been discriminated5 against because of her sex. She feels motherhood is viewed by the company as a negative factor in job promotion3.
 Ardith Trachsel
      Ardith is 39 years old. She is a single mother of three children. She works full time as a
 marketing manager for a fast-food chain. Ardith works 50 hours a week and carpools her 12-year-old daughter to gymnastics after work three days a week. She also makes sure that she is in the stands to watch her 16-year-old son wrestle6 or watch her 15-year-old daughter play soccer. Ardith finds herself staying up late nightly in order to catch up on the wash or housecleaning. She also spends many evenings catching7 up on reports that couldn ' t be finished at work.
      Ardith takes her role as mother and employee very seriously. She feels that her children
shouldn ' t have to help out around the house because they are too busy with academics and sports activities. This same attitude carries over to the workplace. She hates to burden her secretary with extra work, so instead, she does a lot of it herself. She feels that she must be everything to everybody she comes in contact with.
      It is important to note that Ardith grew up in the 1950s. Her mother was always there for her. There was never a day that Ardith did not come home and find her mother waiting for her( sometimes with milk and cookies). Her mother was involved with the parents' organization at school and was her Girl Scout8 leader. Although the family was not well-off financially, Ardith always dressed well. Her mother was an excellent dressmaker.
Mary Healy
     Ardith ' s friend Mary is 37 years old. She also is a single mother with three as she possibiv can. She has limited her volunteering on committees. The one activity that she does get involved in is !he annual Book Sale at school. Her children are responsible for many of the household chores. She has created a rotation9 system so that they all learn how to wash, iron, clean and cook.
     Caria received her nursing degree while working part time as a clerk or typist, ")he also ia raising her sons Jeff and Jason. Caria married when she was about 25 years old. Caria met her husband Paul at a friend' s party. It was sort of a fix up. Paul was much older than her; about 40 years old. Caria was anxious to get married. She had been dating on and off but never seriously. Her parents felt time was running out especially if Caria was to begin a family. Paul and Caria never really fought but a silence ran through their marriage. The children were what made Caria come to life. Paul was content to sit at home, watch TV, or work on his hobby carving10 wooden figures. The marriage seemed to just extinguish11 itself. Caria ran the house, worked, went to school, and raised her two sons. The household, though hectic12, was usually lively and happy.
     Now match each of the persons to the appropriate statement.
