Part II Reading Comprehension (35 minutes)
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage:
The failed Skylab will come screaming home to earth in disappointment sometime next
month. But it will fall we know not where.
That precise information is beyond even the calculations of scientists and their computers.
The best they can tell us is that the space station, weighing 77 tons and as high as a 12
story buiding, will break into hundreds of pieces that will be scattered across a track 100 miles
wide and 4,000 miles long.
We are again exposed to one of those unexpected adventures, or misadventures, of science
that atracts our attention from the boring routines of daily existence and encourages us to think
a lot about man's future.
What worries Richard Smith, the Skylab' s director, is the "big pieces" that will come
through the atmosphere, Two lumps, weighing 2 tons each, and ten, weighing at least 1,000
pounds each, will come in at speeds of hundreds of miles an hour and if they crash on land they
will dig holes up to 100 feet deep.
What worries us, with our lack of scientific knowledge and our quick imagination, is both
the big and little pieces, although project officials say there is a very small chance that anyone
will be injured by them.
That's good to know, but it doesn't remove the doubts of the millions who still remember
the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island. That accident took place in 1979 in spite of what the
officials had assured us as to the safely of the nuclear reactor.
21. Where the Skylab will fall ?
A) is kept secret B) has been made public
C) has been predicted by scientists ~ D) can't be predicted even by computers
22. According to the passage, what does an incident such as the failed Skylab lead us to do?
A) Not to believe in officials. B) To think about our future.
C) Has been predicted by scientists. D) To fear for our lives.
23. The author suggests that
A) the danger of the Skylab's fall has been overestimated
B) it's useless to worry over things you can't do anything about
C) the danger of the Skylab's fall has been underestimated
D) computers can solve the problem caused by the broken Skylab
24. The author refers to Three Mils Island
A) because he is doubtful about what the officials said
B) because he fears that a piece of the Skylab may strike a nuclear power plant
C) because he is afraid of the use of nuclear power
D) because the nuclear reactor there and the Skylab were both built by the same company
25. This passage is mainly about the author's
A) interest in the failure of the Skylab
B) willingness to give his advice
C) eagerness to see more new scientific discoveries
D) concern that science cannot answer all questions
Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage:
As supplier of most of the food we eat and of raw materials for many industrial processes,
agriculture is clearly an important area of the economy. But the industrial performance of
agriculture (the relative efficiency of agricultural production compared to other areas in the
economy) is even more important than this. For in nations where the productivity of farmers is
low, most of the working population is needed to raise food and few people are available for the
production of investment goods or for other activities required for economic growth. Indeed,
one of the factors related most closely to the per capita income (人均收入) of a nation is the
fraction of its population engaged in farming. In the poorest nations of the world more than half
of the population lives on farms. This compares sharply with less than 10 percent in western
Europe and less than 4 percent in the United States.
In short, the course of economic development in general depends in a fundamental way on
the performance of farmers. This performance, in turn, depends on how agriculture is
The movement to "humanize" banks, of course, received a new push during the war,
when more and more women were employed to do work previously performed by men. Also
more and more "little" people found themselves in need of personal loans, as taxes became
heavier and as the practice of installment (分期付款) buying broke down the previously long-
held concept that there was something almost morally wrong about being in debt. All sorts of
people began to discover that the intelligent use of credit (信贷) could be extremely helpful.
