Reading Comprehension Directions: Read the following passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A,B,C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. (A) One evening after dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Tisich called a family meeting. “We’ve had to make a
difficult decision,” Mr. Tisich announced. “You see, your mother has been offered a post as co-director of a television station in Chicago. Unfortunately, the station is not here. After thinking long and hard about it, we’ve concluded that the right decision is to move to Chicago.” Marc looked shocked, while his sister Rachel breathlessly started asking when they’d be moving. “It’s surprising, but exciting!” she said. Marc simply said, “We can’t go—I can’t leave all my friends. I’d rather stay here and live with Tommy Lyons!” The Tisichs hoped that by the time they moved in August, Marc would grow more accustomed to the idea of leaving. However, he showed no signs of accepting the news, refusing to pack his belongings. When the morning of the move arrived, Marc was nowhere to be found. His parents called Tommy Lyon’s house, but Mrs. Lyons said she hadn’t seen Marc. Mrs. Tisich became increasingly concerned, while her husband felt angry with their son for behaving so irresponsibly. What they didn’t know was that Marc had started walking over to Tommy’s house, with a faint idea of hiding in Lyons’s attic(阁楼) for a few days. But something happened on the way as Marc walked past all the familiar landscape of the neighborhood: the fence that he and his mother painted, the tree that he and his sister used to climb, the park where he and his father often took evening walks together. How much would these mean without his family, who make them special in the first place? Marc didn’t take the time to answer that question but instead hurried back to his house, wondering if there were any moving cartons(纸 板 箱 )the right size to hold his record collection. 71.

Mr. John Evans had never found the time or the money – to make the trip from his home near Swansea. But, when British Rail offered him an all-expenses-paid birthday trip to the capital, he just could not refuse. Until yesterday he had never been far from home, except for one trip to Aberdeen. Mr. Evans, who spent 60 years working as a miner in South Wales, almost made the journey to London once before, at the turn of the century. “There was a trip to the White City but it was ten shillings (1 shilling = 1/20 pound) return from Swansea – too much I thought. All my money went to the family then,” he said. During the next two days Mr. Evans will be taken on a whistle-stop tour of London to see the sights. Top of his list is a visit to the Houses of Parliament （国会）. The only arrangement he does not care for is the wheelchair provided to move him about if he gets tired. “I don’t like the chair business – people will so think I am getting old. ” he said. His secret for a long and healthy life has been well publicized – no alcohol, no cigarette and no anger. Before setting off from Swansea with his 76-year-old son, Amwel, he quipped, “ I’m glad to see they’ve given me a return ticket.” 78. It was reported that Mr. Evans’ healthy long life was to a certain extent due to his __________.
wine drinking B. proper smoking C. mild temper D. sense of humor 79．Which of the following statements is true? A single trip from Mr. Evans’s home to the White City used to be ten shillings. The first place for Mr. Evans to visit is the Houses of Parliament. He appreciated people’s arrangement of a wheelchair during his visit. Mr. Evans once made the journey to London at the turn of the century. 80. The word quip in the last sentence most probably means __________. A. to make a witty remark B. to express a happy message C. to make a wish C. to tell a joke 81. What might be the best title for this passage? 110-Year-Old Tourist Secret for Long and Healthy Life Free Return Ticket Sightseeing in London (D) When we walk through the city, we all experience a kind of information overload but we pay attention only to those that are important to us. We don’t stop, we keep our faces expressionless and eyes straight ahead, and in doing so, we are not just protecting ourselves but are avoiding overloading other people as well. We make use of stereotypes (刻板 的模 式) as convenient ways to make quick judgements about situations and people around us. They may not always be accurate, and they can often be dangerously wrong, but they are used regularly. The problem with the stereotypes is that they restrict experience. By using limited clues to provide us with a rapid opinion of other people or places we may choose to limit our communication. We may decide not to go to certain places because we believe they will not offer something we enjoy. In the city, styles of dress are particularly important with regard to self-presentation. Different groups often use clearly identifiable styles of clothes so that they can be easily recognized. It is becoming increasingly common for brand names to be placed on the outside of clothes, and this labeling makes it easy to send out information about fashion and price instantly, and lets others tell at a distance whether an individual has similar tastes and is a suitable person to associate with. In England, where social grouping or class continues to make social distinctions（区分）, clothes, hairstyles, people’s pronunciation and the manner of speaking are all clues to our social group. Class distinctions tend to be relatively fixed, although in the city where greater variety is permitted, they are more likely to be secondary determining factors of friendship and association. People walking in cities ignore the surroundings because __________. they do not wish to talk to other people everyone else is expressionless the environment is already familiar to them there is too much information to take in According to the passage, the main disadvantage of using stereotypes is that they __________.
are likely to lead us into dangerous situations may make us miss some pleasant experience can rarely be relied on make us mentally lazy From the passage we may conclude that _________. stereotypes can help to understand people fully people are becoming more interested in fashion dressing can send messages about individuals stereotypes can do more harm than good to people 85. It would appear that in England, a person’s class __________. might be less important in making friends in a city is mainly determined by his pronunciation plays less of a role than it did in the past is something that can be changed easily 第 II 卷 I.

We will have a further discussion before we draw/make a final conclusion. It is said that the site of an ancient city has been discovered at the bottom of the lake. Although the economy in this area is developing rapidly, the qualities of some citizens are still not satisfactory. They should learn a lesson from this incident: he who plays with fire will surely get burnt. Typescripts Part A Short Conversations M: Do you have any books on fishing? W: Yes, we do, but I’m afraid they are not available at the moment. Q: Where does this conversation most probably take place? M: I’m looking for a nice dress for my mother. How much is this one? W: It’s 20 dollars, but you can have it at half price if you buy two. Q: How much does the man have to pay if he buys two dresses? M: Let’s go for a nice long walk into the country this morning. W: I’d love to, but I think I’m catching a cold. Q: What will the woman probably do? M: This cake is delicious. Where did you buy it? W: I baked it myself. It’s something like my mother’s chocolate cake. Q: Who made the cake? W: My tooth hurts whenever I drink something cold or hot. M: Let me have a check, please. Q: What is the probable relationship between the two speakers? W: I need to be in the city for a conference at half past nine. Do you think I should take the bus or the train? M: Let’s see … You may take the train. It gets there at a quarter to nine. M: Have you read the writer’s latest best seller? W: I’ve just finished it. It’s really wonderful. Q: What are the speakers discussing? M: The switch in the bathroom is broken and we need a new one for the light. W: Why not get Mr. Black to come and take a look? Q: What does Mr. Black most probably do? M: Sarah, did you have a chance to buy that new novel you wanted? W: No, but I had Doris get it for me. Q: What did Saran ask Doris to do for her? M: George is already more than an hour late. Has he changed his mind about
joining us? W: It’s hard to say. Q: What does the woman mean? Part B Longer Conversations Questions 11 and 12 are based on the following conversation. M: We have to decide if we will bring our own food or buy it. W: I prefer to bring our own food. Then we can eat what we like. M: We also have to decide where to have the picnic. W: What about the West Lake? M: The West Lake is nice, but there’s also the National Park. Its playing fields are better than that of the West Lake. What do you think? W: You’re right about the fields, but the West Lake is within walking distance; we would need transportation to the National Park. M: Are you agreed about the West Lake and bringing our own food? Good. Then, it seems that we have solved the two main problems—the place and the food. ( Now listen again, please.) Questions: Why does the woman want to bring their own food? Why do they decide to have the picnic in the West Lake at last? Questions 13 and 14 are based on the following conversation. W: Hello. M: Hi, Sally, this is Mike. W: Oh, it ’s you, Mike! How have you been doing? M: To tell you the truth, I’m very worried about our final examinations next month. For one thing, I can’t sleep. W: That’s too bad. I went through the same thing last year. M: That’s exactly why I’m calling you. Do you have any suggestions for dealing with anxiety? You know how I hate exams! W: Well, last year the university offered a special course about how to get rid of anxiety at about this time. Have you been in contact with the student health services? M: NO, I haven’t had time! W: Funny, isn’t it? Just when students need help most, we can’t afford the time to get It! M: Well, perhaps I should find out more about this course. Things have got to get better! W: I suggest you call the health services tomorrow. They open at nine in the morning. M: Thanks Sally. I’ll let you know how it goes. (Now listen again, please.) Questions: What is the main topic of the conversation? Why has Mike not contacted the student health services?
Part C Passages Questions 15 through 17 are based on the following passage. I started off as a conductor but became a bus driver because the conductors are gradually less needed. If you want to be a driver you have to take a strict medical examination to make sure you’re completely healthy, and you must have a clean driving license. You go to the training school for four weeks to learn how to control a bus. At the end of it all, you take the test. I was lucky, I passed first time. I usually drive for about seven hours a day with breaks in between. My basic pay is $120 a week. I also get free subway and bus travel. Some men drivers think because you’re a woman, young and new, they can make fun of you but generally I get on well with them. It’s much easier to drive a bus than a car. You’re much higher up so you can see the traffic jams miles ahead. I often have little old ladies get off the bus and walk all the way round to the front of the bus to tell me how they admire my driving. It’s really encouraging especially if I’m feeling miserable. (Now listen again, please.) What must the woman have in order to become a bus driver? Why did the woman think she was lucky? What did the woman think of her job as a bus driver? Questions 18 through 20are based on the following passage. The variety of food is Britain’s greatest attraction. Nearly every country in the world is represented, and some of the best Indian and Chinese restaurants in the world can be found in cities such as London, Liverpool, Manchester and many others. Fast food restaurants serving pizzas, hamburgers and fish and chips are convenient for visitors who just want something quick. They usually stay open all day, and welcome children, unlike some restaurants whose main customers are business people. Prices have to be displayed outside restaurants. Set price menus, common in some of the best restaurants at lunchtime, offer good value for money. Most pubs also serve food, especially at lunchtime. This can be cold food such as bread, cheese and salad, or simple hot dished such as chicken and chips. Apart from beer, wine is also available and many pubs now also serve coffee. Wine bars also offer a relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy a good meal. There are many different wines, and the food is usually more complicated than in pubs. (Now listen again, please.) Questions: What is great about the food in Britain? Where do the restaurants have to display their prices? What drink in pubs is not mentioned?
