  Part II Reading Comprehension( 35 minutes)

  Directions: There are 4 passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A), B), C) and D). You should decide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the centre.

  Passage One

  Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.

  Some pessimistic experts feel that the automobile is bound to fall into disuse. They see a day in the not-too-distant future when all autos will be abandoned and allowed to rust. Other authorities, however, think the auto is here to stay. They hold that the car will remain a leading means of urban travel in the foreseeable future.

  The motorcar will undoubtedly change significantly over the next 30 years. It should become smaller, safer, and more economical, and should not be powered by the gasoline engine. The car of the future should be far more pollution-free than present types.

  Regardless of its power source, the auto in the future will still be the main problem in urbantraffic congestion (拥挤). One proposed solution to this problem is the automated highway system.

  When the auto enters the highway system, a retractable (可伸缩的) arm will drop from the auto and make contact with a rail, which is similar to those powering subway trains electrically.Once attached to the rail, the car will become electrically powered from the system, and control of the vehicle will pass to a central computer. The computer will then monitor all of the car's move-ments.

  The driver will use a telephone to dial instructions about his destination into the system. The computer will calculate the best route, and reserve space for the car all the way to the correct exit from the highway. The driver will then be free to relax and wait for the buzzer (蜂鸣器) that will warn him of his coming exit. It is estimated that an automated highway will be able to handle 10,000 vehicles per hour, compared with the 1,500 to 2,000 vehicles that can be carried by a present-day highway.

  21. One significant improvement in the future car will probably be________.

  A) its power source            C) its monitoring system

  B) its driving system          D) its seating capacity

  22. What is the author's main concern?

  A) How to render automobiles pollution-free.

  B) How to make smaller and safer automobiles.

  C) How to solve the problem of traffic jams.

  D) How to develop an automated subway system.

  23. What provides autos with electric power in an automated highway system?

  A) A rail.                C) A retractable arm.

  B) An engine.              D) A computer controller.

  24. In an automated highway system, all the driver needs to do is _______.

  A) keep in the right lane

  B) wait to arrive at his destination

  C) keep in constant touch with the computer center

  D) inform the system of his destination by phone

  25. What is the author's attitude toward the future of autos?

  A) Enthusiastic.          C) Optimistic.

  B) Pessimistic.           D) Cautious.

  Passage Two

  Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.

  Foxes and farmers have never got on well. These small dog-like animals have long been accused of killing farm animals. They are officially classified as harmful and farmers try to keep their numbers down by shooting or poisoning them.

  Farmers can also call on the services of their local hunt to control the fox population. Hunting consists of pursuing a fox across the countryside, with a group of specially trained dogs, followed by men and women riding horses. When the dogs eventually catch the fox they kill it or a hunter shoots it.

  People who take part in hunting think of it as a sport; they wear a special uniform of red coats and white trousers, and follow strict codes of behavior. But owning a horse and hunting regularly is expensive, so most hunters are wealthy.

  It is estimated that up to 100,000 people watch or take part in fox hunting. But over the lastcouple of decades the number of people opposed to fox hunting, because they think it is brutal (残酷的), has risen sharply. Nowadays it is rare for a hunt to pass off without some kind of confrontation (冲突) between hunters and hunt saboteurs (阻拦者). Sometimes these incidents lead to violence, but mostly saboteurs interfere with the hunt by misleading riders and disturbing the trail of the fox's smell, which the dogs follow.

  Noisy confrontations between hunters and saboteurs have become so common that they are almost as much a part of hunting as the pursuit of foxes itself. But this year supporters of fox hunting face a much bigger threat to their sport. A Labour Party Member of the Parliament, Mike Foster, is trying to get Parliament to approve a new law which will make the hunting of wild animals with dogs illegal. If the law is passed, wild animals like foxes will be protected under the ban in Britain.

  26. Rich people in Britain have been hunting foxes

  A) for recreation              C) to limit the fox population

  B) in the interests of the farmers      D) to show off their wealth

  27. What is special about fox hunting in Britain?

  A) It involves the use of a deadly poison.

  B) It is a costly event which rarely occurs.

  C) The hunters have set rules to follow.

  D) The hunters have to go through strict training.

  28. Fox hunting opponents often interfere in the game________.

  A) by resorting to violence          C) by taking legal action

  B) by confusing the fox hunters        D) by demonstrating on the scene

  29. A new law may be passed by the British Parliament to________.

  A) prohibit farmers from hunting foxes

  B) forbid hunting foxes with dogs

  C) stop hunting wild animals in the countryside

  D) prevent large-scale fox hunting

  30. It can be inferred from the passage that ________.

  A) killing foxes with poison is illegal

  B) limiting the fox population is unnecessary

  C) hunting foxes with dogs is considered cruel and violent

  D) fox-hunting often leads to confrontation between the poor and the rich

  Passage Three

  Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.

  For an increasing number of students at American universities, Old is suddenly in. The reason is obvious: the graying of America means jobs. Coupled with the aging of the baby-boom ( 生育高峰) generation, a longer life span means that the nation's elderly population is bound to expand significantly over the next 50 years. By 2050, 25 percent of all Americans will be older than 65, up from 14 percent in 1995. The change poses profound questions for government and society, of course. But it also creates career opportunities in medicine and health professions, and in law and business as well. "In addition to the doctors, we're going to need more sociologists, biologists, urban planners and specialized lawyers," says Professor Edward Schneider of the University of Southern California's (USC) School of Gerontology (老年学).

  Lawyers can specialize in "elder law," which covers everything from trusts and estates to nursing-home abuse and age discrimination (歧视). Businessmen see huge opportunities in the elder market because the baby boomers, 74 million strong, are likely to be the wealthiest group of retirees in human history. "Any student who combines an expert knowledge in gerontology with, say, an MBA or law degree will have a license to print money," one professor says.

  Margarite Santos is a 21-year-old senior at USC. She began college as a biology major but found she was "really bored with bacteria."So she took a class in gerontology and discovered that she liked it. She says, "I did volunteer work in retirement homes and it was very satisfying."

  31. "… Old is suddenly in" (Line 1, Para. 1) most probably means"______".

  A) America has suddenly become a nation of old people

  B) gerontology has suddenly become popular

  C) more elderly professors are found on American campuses

  D) American colleges have realized the need of enrolling older students

  32. With the aging of America, lawyers can benefit ______.

  A) from the adoption of the "elder law"

  B) from rendering special services to the elderly

  C) by enriching their professional knowledge

  D) by winning the trust of the elderly to promote their own interests

  33. Why can businessmen make money in the emerging elder market?

  A) Retirees are more generous in spending money.

  B) They can employ more gerontologists.

  C) The elderly possess an enormous purchasing power.

  D) There are more elderly people working than before.

  34. Who can make big money in the new century according to the passage?

  A) Retirees who are business-minded.

  B) The volunteer workers in retirement homes.

  C) College graduates with an MBA or law degree.

  D) Professionals with a good knowledge of gerontology.

  35. It can be seen from the passage that the expansion of America's elderly population ________.

  A) will provide good job opportunities in many areas

  B) will impose an unbearable burden on society

  C) may lead to nursing home abuse and age discrimination

  D) will create new fields of study in universities

  Passage Four

  Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage.

  The decline in moral standards-which has long concerned social analysts-has at last captured the attention of average Americans. And Jean Bethke Elshtain, for one, is glad.

  The fact that ordinary citizens are now starting to think seriously about the nation's moral climate, says this ethics (伦理学) professor at the University of Chicago, is reason to hope that new ideas will come forward to improve it.

  But the challenge is not to be underestimated. Materialism and individualism in American society are the biggest obstacles. "The thought that 'I'm in it for me' has become deeply rooted in the national consciousness," Ms. Elshtain says.

  Some of this can be attributed to the disintegration of traditional communities, in which neighbors looked out for one another, she says. With today's greater mobility and with so many couples working, those bonds have been weakened, replaced by a greater emphasis on self.

  In a 1996 poll of Americans, loss of morality topped the list of the biggest problems facing the U.S. And Elshtain says the public is correct to sense that: Data show that Americans are struggling with problems unheard of in the 1950s, such as classroom violence and a high rate of births to unmarried mothers.

  The desire for a higher moral standard is not a lament (挽歌) for some nonexistent "golden age," Elshtain says, nor is it a wishful ( 一厢情愿的 ) longing for a time that denied opportunities to women and minorities. Most people, in fact, favor the lessening of prejudice.

  Moral decline will not be reversed until people frnd ways to counter the materialism in society,she says. "Slowly, you recognize that the things that matter are those that can't be bought."

  36. Professor Elshtain is pleased to see that Americans________.

  A) have adapted to a new set of moral standards

  B) are longing for the return of the good old days

  C) have realized the importance of material things

  D) are awakening to the lowering of their moral standards

  37. The moral decline of American society is caused mainly by

  A) its growing wealth

  B) the self-centeredness of individuals

  C) underestimating the impact of social changes

  D) the prejudice against women and minorities

  38. Which of the following characterizes the traditional communities?

  A) Great mobility.           C) Emphasis on individual effort.

  B) Concern for one's neighbors.    D) Ever-weakening social bonds.

  39. In the 1950s, classroom violence

  A) was something unheard of        C) attracted a lot of public attention

  B) was by no means a rare occurrence    D) began to appear in analysts' data

  40. According to Elshtain, the current moral decline may be reversed

  A) if people can return to the "golden age"

  B) when women and men enjoy equal rights

  C) when people rid themselves of prejudice

  D) if less emphasis is laid on material things

  Part III Vocabulary and Structure

  41. [D]by引导时间状语时,句子一般用完成时态,这里by短语所引导的是将来的时间,因此应该用将来完成时,所以答案为D。

  42.[A] 本题中所填谓语动词是宾语从句中时间状语从句中的谓语动词,不受前面动词的限制,该用什么时态的就用什么时态。从句表示一般将来,因此应该用一般现在,答案A。

  Passage 1

  51TestThere was once a man in South America who had a parrot, a pet bird that could imitate human speech. The parrot was unique. There was no bird like him in the whole world. He could learn to say any word except one. He could not say the name of his native town, Ketunnel. The man did everything he could to teach the parrot to say Ketunnel, but he never succeeded. At first he was very gentle with the bird. But gradually, he lost his temper. "You stupid bird. Why can't you learn to say that one word? Say Ketunnel or I will kill you." But the parrot would not say it. Many times the man screamed, "Say Ketunel, or I'll kill you." But the bird would never repeat the name. Finally, the man gave up. He picked up the parrot and threw him into the chicken house. "You are even more stupid than the chickens." In the chicken house, there were four old chickens, waiting to be killed for Sunday's dinner. The next morning, when he went out of the chicken house, the man opened the door. He was shocked by what he saw. He could not believe his eyes and ears. On the floor lay three dead chickens. The parrot was screaming at the fourth, "Say Ketunel, or I'll kill you."

  11.Why did the man lose his temper?

  12.Who killed the three chickens?

  13.Why was the shocked at the scene the next morning?

  Passage 2

  51TestIn Britain, if you are found guilty of a crime, you can be sent to prison or be fined or be ordered to do community work such as tidying public places and helping the old. You may also be sent to special centers when you learn special skills like cooking, writing and car maintenance. About 5 percent of the present population are women. Many prisons were built over one hundred years ago. But the government will have built 11 new prisons by next year. There are two sorts of prisons. The open sort and the closed sort. In the closed sort, prisoners are given very little freedom. They spend three to ten hours outside their cells when they exercise, eat, study, learn skills, watch TV and talk to other prisoners. All prisoners are expected to work. Most of them are paid for what they do, whether it is doing maintenance or cooking and cleaning. Prisoners in open prisons are locked up at night, but for the rest of the time, they are free within the prison grounds. They can exercise, have visitors, or study. And some are allowed out of the ground to study or to do community work.

  14.What do we know about women prisoners in Britain?

  15.In what way are open prisons different from closed prisons?

  16.What do we learn about prisoners in Britain?

  Passage 3

  51TestLondon taxi drivers know the capital like the back of their hands. No matter how small or indistinct the street is, the driver will be able to get you there without any trouble. The reason London taxi drivers are so efficient is that they all have gone through a very tough training period to get special taxi driving license. During this period, which can take two to four years, the would-be taxi driver has to learn the most direct route to every single road and to every important building in London. To achieve this, most learners go around the city on small motorbikes practicing how to move to and from different points of the city. Learner taxi drivers are tested several times during the training period by government officers. The exams are terrible experience. The officers ask you "How do you get from Birmingham palace to the Tower of London?" and you have to take them there in the direct line. When you get to the tower, they won't say "well done". They will quickly move on to the next question. After five or six questions, they will just say "See you in two months' time." and then you know the exam is over. Learner drivers are not allowed to work and earn money as drivers. Therefore, many of them keep their previous jobs until they have obtained the license. The training can cost quite a lot, because learners have to pay for their own expenses on the tests and the medical exam.

  17.Why are London taxi drivers very efficient?

  18.How long does the training period last?

  19.Why does the speaker think the driving test is a terrible experience?

  20.Why do learner drivers have to keep their present jobs?
