Boys' schools are the perfect place to teach young men to express their emotions and involve them in activities such as art, dance and music.
Far from the traditional image of a culture of aggressive masculinity (阳刚), the absence of girls gives boys the chance to develop without pressure to conform to a stereotype. a US study says.
Boys at single-sex schools were said to be more likely to get involved in cultural and artistic activities that helped develop their emotional expressiveness, rather than feeling they had to conform to the "boy code" of hiding their emotions to be a "real man".
选项：57. The author believes that a single-sex school would ____ .
A) force boys to hide their emotions to be "real men"
B) help to cultivate masculine aggressiveness in boys
C) encourage boys to express their emotions more freely
D) naturally reinforce in boys the traditional image of a man
同学一定要记住，一个答案之所以正确，就是因为它和原文信息形成了含义或语义成分的一一对应。single-sex school定位在文章第三段。C选项的encourage对应原文的helped develop，选项中的express their emotions对应原文中的emotional expressiveness，选项中的more freely对应原文中的more likely。一一对应，所以正确。
