Answer questions 1-3 according to the following text:
The United States is now becoming a non-smoking society. Across the country, hundreds of towns and cities, and even entire states, are passing strict laws to control the sale and use of cigarettes.
In New York, for example, smoking is illegal in public buildings, hospitals, schools, banks, stores, movie theaters, taxi-cabs, and restrooms, to name a few places. In addition, smoking is prohibited anywhere in the U.S. on airline ﬂights that last two hours or less. And now many private companies have also made rules prohibiting cigarette smoking. At least 40% of American companies restrict smoking by their employees.
Company policies are mostly of three kinds: they prohibit smoking by employees when they are working, they hire only non-smokers, or they force workers who smoke to quit smoking.

workers are hired because they smoke. workers have to give up smoking if they want to continue working. workers are required to smoke if they want to continue working. workers are ﬁred because they smoke.

none of the company policies ban smoking. all of the company policies ban smokers. the ﬁrst policy bans smoking, and the other two, ban smokers. the ﬁrst and second policies ban smokers, and the last one bans smoking.
