IV. Cloze Directions: For each blank in the following passages there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context. (A) Farmers, as we all know, have been having a hard time of it lately, and have turned to new ways of earning income from their land. This involves not only planting new kinds of crops, but some __55__ ways of making money, the most unusual of which has got to be sheep racing. Yes, you heard me __56__! A farmer now holds sheep races on a regular basis, and during the past year over 100,000 people have __57__ to watch the race. “I was passing the farm on my way to the sea for a holiday, ” one punter (赛马经纪人) told me , “and I thought I”d have a look. I didn”t believe it was serious, to tell you the truth.” According to a regular visitor, betting on sheep is more interesting than betting on horses. “At proper horse races everyone has already studied the form of the horse __58__, and there are clear favourites. __59__ nobody has heard anything about these __60__! Most people find it difficult to tell one from another in any case. ” I stayed to watch the races, and I must admit that I found it quite __61__. In a usual sheep race, half a dozen sheep race down hill over a course of about half a mile. Food is waiting for them at the other end of the __62__ just to give them some encouragement, I ought to add! The sheep run surprisingly fast, __63__ they have probably not eaten for a while. Anyway, the crowd around me were obviously enjoying their day out at the races, __64__ by their happy faces and the sense of excitement. 55. A. common B. strange C. swift D. illegal 56. A. honestly B. surprisingly C. completely D. correctly 57. A. showed off B. brought up C. turned up D. looked forward 58. A. behind time B. in progress C. in advance D. in time 59. A. But B. Therefore C. Moreover D. Otherwise 60. A. horses B. sheep C. races D. stories 61. A. exciting B. dangerous C. boring D. peculiar 62. A. race B. hill C. track D. field 63. A. if B. so C. yet D. although 64. A. observing B. judging C. considering D. inferring (B)
The British love to think of themselves as polite, and everyone knows how fond they are of their “pleases” and “thank you”, Even the simplest business such as buying a train ticket requires __65__ seven or eight of these. Another __66__ of our good manners is the queue. New-comers to Britain could be forgiven for thinking that queuing rather than football was the __67__ national sport. Finally, of course, motorists generally stop at crossings. But does all this mean that the British should consider themselves more polite than their European neighbours? I think not. Take forms of address (称呼) for example. The average English person － __68__ he happens to work in a hotel or department store － would rather die than call a stranger “Sir” or “Madam”. Yet in some European countries this is the most basic of common address. Our __69__ “you” for everyone may appear more democratic, but it means that we are forced to seek out complicated ways to express __70__. I am all for returning to the use of “thee” and “thou” (Thee and thou are old-fashioned poetic words for “you”); “you” would be __71__ for strangers and professional relationships. And of course, the English find touching and other shows of friendship truly terrifying. Have you noticed how the British __72__ ever touch? Personally. I find the Latin habit of shaking hands or a friendly kiss quite charming. Try kissing the average English person, and they will either take two steps backwards in horror, or, if their escape is __73__. you will find your lips touching the back of their head. Now what could be __74__ than that? 65. A. at least B. at most C. less than D. not more than 66. A. signal B. scene C. sign D. sight 67. A. true B. original C. superior D. advanced 68. A. if B. whether C. when D. unless 69. A. universal B. unique C. regular D. normal 70. A. politeness B. gratitude C. democracy D. consideration 71. A. ordered B. reserved C. offered D. stocked 72. A. highly B. mostly C. hardly D. nearly 73. A. confirmed B. assured C. jammed D. blocked 74. A. better B. ruder C. more polite D. more frightening V. 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) While reading, you may focus on the Q (question) and A (answer) on the following web page. Q: My husband and I would like to spend five or six days in the Maldives. Could you suggest some low-priced hotels? We”ll be there in November. Jan Davies, email. A: Prices in the Maldives are high. The cheaper hotels (and there aren”t many) mightn”t be much to look at, with unpleasant rooms, iron roofs, old buildings, poor and rough vegetation and basic facilities, but they get their atmosphere from cheerful customers and an untidy, free island feel. Angaga (South Ari Atoll, phone 0011 960 450510), Asdu Sun Island (North Male Atoll, email firstname.lastname@example.org) are both a bit like this. You”ll be there in the low season (May to November), when it”s still warm, but there”s a greater likelihood of rain, so you should be able to get a double (standard) room with full board (three meals a day) for $100 a night. However, pricing structures for the hotels are enormously complex for standard, superior and luxurious rooms. Q: My husband and I are from Australia. We are planning a four-week trip to London, Dublin and Paris in October and we are shocked by the cost of hotels. We have searched the Internet and hotel books given to us by tourist authorities but we can”t find anything cheaper than $150 a night. John Maloney, email. A: For Australians traveling Europe, especially its capital cities, is expensive. You may have to increase your budget (预算). However, if you can”t afford these costs, then you should consider staying in hotels where the cheapest twin rooms with shared bathroom cost about $20 a person in Dublin and Paris and $35 in London. The minimum you would pay for a double room in a central area is $50 a person in Dublin and Paris and $70 in London. These prices are for shared bathroom facilities, though you will get a wonderfully unhealthy cooked breakfast thrown in. Not all hotels are equal, of course, and it”s a good idea to consult a guidebook with a good reputation. 75. The hotel Angaga in the Maldives ________. A. attracts untidy people B. has some basic facilities C. has the best landscape D. can be contacted by email 76. If you spend your holiday in the Maldives in February ________.
A. there is a greater likelihood of rain B. the weather will probably be better than that of the low season C. standard, superior and luxurious rooms are all available D. a standard room with full board will cost less than $100 a night 77. What is the advice for the couple planning to visit Europe in October? A. They could live in hotel rooms of lower standard. B. They should put up with the wonderfully unhealthy cooked breakfast. C. They should buy a reliable guidebook instead of increasing the budget. D. They should stay in hotels in a central area. (B) Martha had been working for Miller Laboratories for two years, but she was not happy there. Nothing significant had happened in the way of promotions or salary increases. Martha felt that her supervisor, a younger and less experienced person than she, did not like her. In fact, the supervisor often said unpleasant things to her. One day, while talking with her friend Maria, she mentioned how discouraged she was. Maria gave her the name of a cousin of hers who was director of Human Resources Department for a large chemical company. Martha called him the next day and set up an interview on her lunch hour. During the interview, Mr. Petri said, “You”re just the kind of person we need here. You”re being wasted in your other job. Give me a call in a day or two. I”m sure we can find a place for you in our organization.” Martha was so happy she almost danced out of the building. That afternoon, Ruth Kenny, her supervisor, saw that Martha had come in ten minutes late from her lunch hour and she said, “Oh, so you finally decided to come back to work today?” This was the last straw. She could not take another insult. Besides, Mr. Petri was right, she was being wasted in this job. “Look,” she said angrily, “if you don”t like the way I work, I don”t need to stay here. I”ll go where I”m appreciated! Good-bye!” She took up her things and stormed out of the office. That night she called Maria and told her what had happened and then asked Maria, “What do you think ?”
“Well,” said Maria carefully, “are you sure about the other job?” “Well, not exactly, but …” Maria continued, “Will you be able to get a recommendation from Ms. Kenny if you need one?” “A recommendation? … from Ms. Kenny?” hesitated Martha, in a worried tone. “Martha, I hope you didn”t burn your bridges.” Maria said, “I think I would have handled it differently.” 78. Martha is unhappy in her job because ________. A. she has not advanced B. the work is not significant C. her supervisor is younger than she D. there is too much work with little payment 79. Which of the following statements is NOT true? A. At her supervisor”s criticism, Martha lost her temper. B. Mr. Petri felt Martha was not valued in her present job. C. Martha”s interview with the director was on her lunch hour. D. Martha got the name of the director through her cousin. 80. The phrase “the last straw” in the middle of the passage probably refers to ________. A. the last opportunity B. the straw that saves Martha”s life C. the last reminder D. the final unpleasant thing 81. What does Marta think of Martha”s decision? A. Martha has handled the matter properly. B. Martha shouldn”t have set the bridge on fire. C. Martha should have found a new job before leaving. D. Martha shouldn”t have lost her temper with her supervisor. (C) You are what you eat and fats are a main food for Asia”s fast-food generation. Dr. Chwang, director of the Department of Food Nutrition, says children are consuming more meat and
soft drinks. That is a thorough departure from the traditional diet of vegetables and rice and little meat. “They like big pieces of fried meat with a soft drink. So although they may eat the same volume of food, their calorie intake (卡路里摄入量) has increased. Now about 40 to 45 percent of their calories come from fat, ” says Chwang. Although on the whole Asians tend towards thinness, culture－namely Asians” hospitality (好客)－is a reason for the famess of today”s generation, according to Chwang. “Asian people love food,” she says, “Eating and drinking are important social and family functions.” In the past, however, big meals were only hosted on special occasions as people were more careful with money. In today”s climate of wealth and remarkable consumption, 10-course meals are no longer reserved for significant occasions. More than anyone else, children are on the receiving end of their parents” improved circumstances. “In the past, people had four or more children－now, they have one or two, so they tend to spoil them,” says Chwang, “The easiest way is to give them “quality food”. Parents think feeding them well is showing their love. They feel bad when their children look thin.” When describing the physical condition of most overweight Asian children. Chwang says: “There is a clear relationship between fatness and indoor play. Children get fat because they don”t move, and eventually, they don”t want to move because they”re fat.” Thanks to technology, a growing army of children prefer video games to old outdoor sports. “What do children do when watching TV or sitting in front of the computer playing video games? They eat chocolate and drink Coke.” Says Chwang. 82. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A. Asian people tend to save more money. B. Asian children depart from their diet tradition. C. Asian children eat big meals on more occasions. D. Culture contributes to the fatness of Asian children. 83. According to this passage, the “quality food” fed by some parents is actually ________. A. healthful food B. qualified food C. agreeable food D. high-calorie food 84. Some parents feel bad when their children look thin, because ________. A. their children don”t love eating and drinking B. their children don”t have a good physical condition
C. they feel that they don”t take good care of their children D. they feel that they are not wealthy enough to afford “quality food” 85. They purpose of this article is to ________. A. compare the traditional diet with today”s diet of Asian children B. find reasons for increased food consumption of Asian people C. explain why many Asian children are overweight nowadays D. prove the relationship between fatness and indoor play (D) Many experts complain that media too often take advantage of the science fiction aspects of nanotech (纳米技术). Reports of nanotech often refer to K. Eric Drexler”s book Engines of Creations, which predicts an age full of dominant molecular (分子的) manufacturing and a world without material scarcity. Whatever humans need will one day be built cheaply with microscopic self-replicating machines (微细自我复制机) that put atoms together to create copies of anything alive in the world－from trees to human badies. In fact, the scientific community is deeply divided over whether self-replicating machines are possible. If they are, major dangers could exist. Mr. Drexler himself thought that self-replicating machines could probably go out of control. He writes in his book that man-made “plants” with “leaves no more efficient than today”s solar cells could win over real plants, crowding the earth with leaves that are not suitable to be eaten. Tough “bacteria” could be more competitive than real bacteria: They could spread everywhere, replicate swiftly, and reduce the earth to dust in a matter of days.” Critics of nanotech have made use of such images, calling for a delay on commercial nanotech until regulations are established. They also point to the possible military uses of nanotech. Bill Joy, the co-founder of Sun Microsystems, wrote in a Wired magazine essay in 2000 that if nanotech falls into the wrong hands, it could bring dangers to society. Opponents say Mr. Joy is overreacting. “In a way, calling for bans on research into molecular manufacturing is like calling for a delay on faster-than-light travel because no one is doing it.” says Glenn Reynolds, a University of Tennessee law professor. Professor Reynolds says it is a good idea to regulate nanotech, but in ways the government would regulate any products that could be dangerous. Export controls and certification systems for nanotech companies are examples. US lawmakers have not four hills on nanotech research and development. 86. K. Eric Drexler in his book predicts a future world with sufficient material, because ________.
A. man-made plants could replace real plants and grow more quickly B. plants produced by nanotech would be as efficient as today”s solar cells C. man-made bacteria would be widespread and capable of self-replicating D. humans could create copies of anything alive with high technology 87. To call for a delay on commercial nanotech, critics of nanotech make use of ________. A. current social problems B. science fiction descriptions C. disagreements in the scientific community D. the fact that no one is doing molecular manufacturing 88. Opponents of Bill Joy would NOT agree to ________. A. control nanotech export B. ban nanotech research to avoid any possible dangers C. put forth bills on nanotech research and development D. establish a certification system for nanotech companies 89. Which of the following statements best summarizes the main idea of the passage? A. Nanotech should not be put into wrong use in the military field. B. The government should regulate products that could be dangerous. C. Nanotech regulations should be established in spite of the divided opinions. D. The media should not take advantage of the science faction aspects of nanotech. 第 II 卷（共 40 分） I.
