Part . Reading Comprehension (40 points)

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

Passage One

The British policeman has several nicknames, but the most frequently used are
copper and bobby. The first name comes from the verb cop meaning to
take, and the second comes from the first name of Sir Robert Peel, a 19th century
politician, who was the founder of the police force. An early nickname for the
policeman was peeler, but this name had died out.

Visitors to England seem, nearly always, to be very impressed by the English
police. In fact, it has become a joke that visitors to Britain, when asked for his
opinions of the country, will always say, I think your policemen are wonderful.

Well, the British bobby may not always be wonderful but he is usually a very

friendly and helpful person.

A music-hall song of some years ago was called If you want to know the time,
ask a policeman. Nowadays, most people own watches but they still seem to find
plenty of other questions to ask the policemen. In London, the policemen spend so
much of their time directing visitors about the city that one wonders how they ever
find time to do anything else.

41. The British policeman has nicknames mentioned in the passage.

A. two B. three C. several D. many

42. The main idea of the second paragraph is that .

A. visitors to Britain are very thankful to the policemen for their help

B. the British policemen tell the visitors the views of their country

C. visitors to England think the British policemen are wonderful

D. the English policemen have become a joke to the visitors

43. If you want to know the time, ask a policeman. This means .

A. the British policeman knows the time correctly

C. the British policemen cant find any time to do anything else but help the

D. the British policemens nicknames have died out

Passage Two

Some people believe that you have to be a special kind of people to sell a product.
But although it is clear that a successful salesman does need special talents and
an open personality, many of the skills he uses are used by us all.

We build and keep relationships with different kinds of people, we listen to
and take note of what they tell us and dont just enjoy the sound of our own voices,
and we explain things to them or discuss ideas with them.

In the same way, any company needs to establish a personal relationship with
its major clients and potential customers. It is often said that people do business
with people: a firm doesnt just deal impersonally() with another
firm. A person in the buying department regularly receives personal visits from
people representing the firms suppliersor in the case of department
stores of chain stores, a team of buyers may travel around visiting their suppliers.

Keeping sales peopleon the roadis much more expensive than employing them
to work in the office. Much of the sales peoples time is spent unproductively

traveling. Telephone selling may use this time more productivity, but a face-to-face
meeting and discussion is much more effective. Companies involved in the export trade
often have a separate export sales force. Its travel and accommodation expenses may
be very high. As a result, servicing overseas customers may often be done by phone,
telex() or letter, and personal visits may be less often. Many firms appoint
an overseas agent or distributor) whose own sales force takes over the
responsibility for selling their products in another country.

46. According to the passage, to be a successful salesman, one .

A. doesnt need any talent

B. needs to go out every day

C. should listen to his boss

D. should be able to work with different kinds of people

47. In the third paragraph, potential customers refers to people who


A. are likely to buy your products

C. are not willing to buy your products

D. are not interested in your products

48. The phrase on the road in the last paragraph can be best replaced by


A. traveling B. relaxing C. playing D. sightseeing

49. The passage indicates that some companies use telephone selling because


A. they have too many sales people

B. their sales people dont like traveling

C. it saves time

D. it is more polite

50. The last paragraph says that an overseas agent of a company is responsible
for .

A. training local sales people

B. protecting local customers

C. holding regular sales conferences

D. selling its products in the local area

Passage Three

In April 1985, the management of the Coca-Cola Company announced its decision
to change the flavor of the companys flagship brand. This decision was made based
on the fact that Pepsi consumer research discovered in blind taste tests that a
majority of consumers preferred the taste of Pepsi to that of Coke. The Pepsi
Challenge campaign made this public knowledge and Coke executives quickly moved
to change Americans top brand. New Coke came in a new can, with updated red and
silver graphics replacing the traditional red and white look. Although taste tests
of the New Coke had shown that a majority of those tested preferred the new product,
these tests could not gauge () the emotional appeal of the old Coke. In other
words, consumers want their cake and eat it too. A large public cried one after

another during the 79 days when old Coke was no longer on the shelves. Coca-Cola
quickly reintroduced the old Coke when they realized market share was falling
and named it Classic Coke. Volume for the classic brand has risen 24 percent since
1984, making it the No.1 soft drink in the land since 1987. Consumers became even
more loyal to the brand after it was temporarily taken away from them.

Passage Four

There are two kinds of memory: short-term and long-term. Information in
long-term memory can be remembered at a later time when it is needed. The information
may be kept for days or weeks. However, information in short-term memory is kept
for only a few seconds, usually by repeating the information over and over. The
following experiment shows how short-term memory has been studied.

Henning studied how students who are learning English as a second language
remember vocabulary. The subjects in his experiment were 75 college students. They
represented all levels of ability in English: beginning, intermediate, and
native-speaking students.

To begin with, the subjects listened to a recording of a native speaker reading
a paragraph in English. Following the recording, the subjects took a 15-question
test to see which words they remembered. Each question had four choices. The subjects
had to circle the word they had heard in the recording. Some of the questions had

four choices that sound alike. For example, weather, whether, wither, and wetter
are four words that sound alike. Some of the questions had four choices that have
the same meaning. Method, way, manner, and system would be four words with the same
meaning. Finally the subjects took a language proficiency test.

Henning found that students with a lower proficiency in English made more of
their mistakes on words that sound alike; students with a higher proficiency in
English made more of their mistakes on words that have the same meaning. Hennings
results suggest that beginning students hold the sound of words in their short-term
memory, and advanced students hold the meaning of words in their short-term memory.

56. Henning made the experiment in order to study .

A. how students remember English vocabulary by short-term memory

B. how students learn English vocabulary

C. how to develop studentsability in English

D. how long information in short-term memory is kept

57. Which of the following statements is TURE according to the passage?

A. Information in short-term memory is different from that in long-term memory.

B. Long-term memory can be achieved only by training.

C. It is easier to test short-term memory than long-term memory.

D. Henning gave a separate test on vocabulary to his students.

58. From Hennings result we can see that .

A. beginners have difficulty distinguishing the pronunciation of words

B. advanced students remember words by their meaning

C. it is difficult to remember words that sound alike

D. it is difficult to remember words that have the same meaning

59. The word subject in the passage means .

A. memory

B. the theme of listening material

C. a branch of knowledge studied

Part . Reading Comprehension (40 points)

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

Passage One

The advantages and disadvantages of a large population have long been a subject
of discussion among economists. It has been argued that the supply of good land is
limited. To feed a large population, inferior land must be cultivated and the good
land worked intensively. Thus, each person produces less and this means a lower

average income than could be obtained with a smaller population. Other economists
have argued that a large population gives more scope for specialization and the
development of facilities such as ports, roads and railways, which are not likely
to be built unless there is a big demand to justify them.

One of the difficulties in carrying out a world-wide birth control program lies
in the fact that official attitudes to population growth vary from country to country
depending on the level of industrial development and the availability of food and
raw materials. In the developing country where a vastly expanded population is
pressing hard upon the limits of food, space and natural resources, it will be the
first concern of government to place a limit on the birthrate, whatever the
consequences may be. In a highly industrialized society the problem may be more
complex. A decreasing birthrate may lead to unemployment because it results in a
declining market for manufactured goods. When the pressure of population on housing
declines, prices also decline and the building industry is weakened. Faced with
considerations such as these, the government of a developed country may well prefer
to see a slowly increasing population, rather than one which is stable or in decline.

41. A small population may mean _ .

A. higher productivity, and a lower average income

B. lower productivity, but a higher average income

C. lower productivity and a lower average income

D. higher productivity and a higher average income

42. According to the passage, a large population will provide a chance for
developing .

A. agriculture B. transport system

C. industry D. national economy

43. According to the passage, slowly rising birthrate perhaps is good for


A. a developing nation

B. a developed nation

C. every nation with a big population

D. every nation with a small population

44. In a developed country, people will perhaps go out of work if the birth
rate .

A. goes up B. goes down C. remains stable D. is out of control

45. It is no easy job to carry out a general plan for birth control throughout
the world because .

A. there are too many underdeveloped countries in the world

B. underdeveloped countries have low level of industrial development

C. different governments have different views of the question

D. even developed countries may have complex problems

Passage Two

Today a pilot is totally dependent on what the air traffic controller on the
ground tells him. He cant see enough to be safe. Flight watch is an instrument
intended to help him.

On a screen in front of the pilot. There will be a map of the airspace around
the plane. The pilots own flight level or height and his own plane at the center
of the screen will show up. On the map any other planes in the airspace will appear
as blobs of light with tails showing the direction of their flight. The Flight
watch map is unusual, for the other planes are not shown at their true ranges, but
at their distances away in flying time. That gets over the problem of fast planes
being too far away to be seen but likely to make contact in seconds and slow planes
that are close enough to be seen but so slow that theres no chance of contact for,
say, ten minutes.

The pilot will be able to see on the screen whether another planes course
conflicts with his own. The screen will show him the flight number of the other plane,
so he can contact air traffic control and ask them about the other planes course.
Then he can take avoiding action if necessary. The screen will show him whether his
action puts him in danger from yet another aircraft.

Passage Three

Are you carrying too much on your back at school? Im sure lots of children
of your age will say Yes. Not only the students in China have this problem, but
children in the United States also have heavy schoolbags.

Doctors are starting to worry that younger students are having back and neck
problems as a result of schoolbags being too heavy for them.

Its hard for me to go upstairs with my bag because its so heavy, said
Rick Hammond, an 11-year-old student in the US.

Rick is among students who have common schoolbags with two straps to carry them,
but many other students choose rolling () bags.

But even with rolling bags, getting up stairs and buses is still a problem for
children. Many of them have hurt their backs and necks because of the heavy

But how much is too much? Doctors say students should carry no more than 10%
to 15% of their own body weight.

Scott Smith, a back doctor, said children under Grade 4 should stay with 10%.
But it is also important that older children dont stay with over 15%, because their
bodies are still growing. Children are losing balance and falling down with their
schoolbags, he said.

Parents and teachers are starting to tell children to only take home library

Passage Four

First aid is the care given to the injured or sick as soon as possible
after an accident or illness. It is this immediate care and attention before the
arrival of the ambulance () that sometimes means the difference between life
and death, or a full or partial recovery.

First aid has limitations, as not everybody is a doctor or expert, but it is

a key element of the total medical system.

The principle to be adopted in first aid is immediate action. By-standers (
) or relatives not knowing what to do, or being too fearful to try, have unwisely
contributed to unnecessary deaths and worse injuries.

It is important that any action taken by the first aid provider is started as
quickly as possible. Quick action is necessary to save life and parts of the body.
One who is not breathing effectively, or is bleeding() heavily, requires
immediate help. If quick effective first aid is provided, then they have a much better
chance of a good recovery.

But it should be remembered that any action taken is to be most careful, and
fright () by the first aid provider and by-standers will not be good to the whole
thing. Try to remain calm and think your action through. A calm and controlled first
aider will give everyone confidence that the event is being handled efficiently and

56. The writer seems to suggest that if you dont know much about first aid,
you should .

A. call for help from professionals B. still try to help

C. stand by and not try to help D. learn it from a doctor

of .

A. other peoples hesitation to offer first aid

B. unprofessional first aid

C. unnecessary first aid

D. unwise suggestions by by-standers

A. One should not apply first aid to the injured without knowing the cause of
the accident.

B. It is easy to carry out first aid if one has the necessary facilities.

C. First aid is an important part of the whole treatment.

D. First aid may not be effective before a doctor or expert comes.

59. The most important thing in providing first aid is to .

A. call for an ambulance B. prevent bleeding

C. know what to do D. act quickly

60. While offering first aid, the helper should .

How to Own a Book

After you have established the property right of a book by purchasing it, what
are you going to do with it? Put it away on your bookshelf just as an ornament showing
how learned you are, or digest it as a part of yourself? Buying is only the prelude
to possession.

But you may ask how to own a book. In the first place, you should read it. A
book cant be a book if you decline to read it. You cant get anything if you let
the book lie on the shelf for years. However, reading is not enough. You read books,
but it doesnt follow that you will become smarter and advance faster. If you solely
absorb what you have read, youll only be a bookworm. On the contrary, if you apply
the books knowledge to practice, you will find its merits or defects, you may
correct it, use it and even popularize it.

So, whenever you come across a book, please both read it and apply it. Then you
really own a book.

The Teacher-student Relationship

The teacher-student relationship is of vital importance in class. A sound and
efficient tie between teachers and students can help to do away with all the
difficulties and misunderstandings in teaching and learning, and make classes

A teacher should not be too hard on his students. Frequent harsh and demanding
words may discourage the students from giving and answering questions, interacting
and even attending classes. One the other hand, too much freedom and let-alone time
may give rise to no concept of discipline, unfinished homework and poor study
performance on exams. Therefore, the teacher must keep away from the other extreme.

The greatest gift a teacher can bestow the students is an awakening of a passion
for learning. So a teacher should be enthusiastic, encouraging and helpful, and he
should motivate his students to want to learn and form a right attitude toward study.
He must make them see study as a joyful thing but not a burden and encourage them
to work for the whole society when they graduate.

Teachers care and love for students is selfish. They not only input the

innocent hearts knowledge, but also help to shape character. Students should have
great respect for their teachers and be polite inside and outside class. The biggest
thing students can do for their teachers as respect may be to serve all the people
heart and soul with knowledge from classes.
