There is a noticeable difference between the percentages of boys and girls who participate in sport for more that an hour three times a week.

男孩和女孩参加体育运动的时间超过一小时三次的比例存在显著差异。

About one-third of girls devote over an hour of their time three times a wook to active leisure pursuits while this applies to over half of the boys. There is a similar difference between the percentages of very active yound people. Almost 1 in 10 boys between the ages of 12 and 17 paly sport for hour at least 6 days a week. The figure for young women is only 1 in 20.

大约三分之一的女孩每天花三次超过一个小时的时间从事积极的休闲活动，而超过一半的男孩也是如此。非常活跃的年轻人的百分比之间也有类似的差异。在12岁至17岁的男孩中，近十分之一的人每周至少有6天参加一小时的体育运动。年轻女性的比例只有1/20。

A closer examination of the figures for young people who actually participated in physical activity reveals that the greatest proportion dedicate at least 3 days per wook to these pastimes. This is true of about 80 percent of both boys and girls.

对实际参加体育活动的年轻人的数据进行更仔细的研究后发现，最大比例的人每次至少花3天时间参加这些娱乐活动。这对大约80%的男孩和女孩来说都是如此。

The fact that girls generally spend close to 10 percent less time on average on physical activities that boys rises questions about how fit young women are in comparison to young men.

女孩在体育活动上的平均花费通常比男孩少近10%，这一事实引发了人们对年轻女性与年轻男性相比身体健康程度的质疑。

## question2

## answer

In 1961 people in the UK mostly watched television or listened to the radio in their leisure time. On average they spent almost half of their free time on these activities. After that came other unspecified pastimes, which took up about an hour and a quarter a day.

People didn’t seem to socialise a great deal, as this accounted for only 35 minutes in a typical day. People ate out, went to the cinema or entertained themselves in other ways outside the home for an average of 28 minutes a day. Finally, people played sports or walked for an average of only 9 minutes a day.
