Part Ⅱ
Reading Comprehension (20 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 center. 

Passage One
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage: 

African elephants have been slaughtered at alarming rate over the past decade, largely because they are the primary source of the world’s ivory. Their population has been dwindled from 1.3 million in 1979 to just 625,000 today, and the rate of killing has been accelerating in recent years because many of the older, bigger tusked animals have already been destroyed. “The poachers now must kill times as many elephants to get the same quantity of ivory,” explained Curtis Bohlen, Senior vicepresident of the World Wildlife Fund.
Though its record on the environment has been spotty so far,the government last week took the lead in a major conservation issue by imposing a ban on ivory imports into the US.The move came just four days after a consortium of conservation groups,including the World Wildlife Fund and Wildlife Conservation International,called for that kind of action, and it made the US the first nation to forbid imports of both raw and finished ivory.The ban,says Bohlen,sends avery clear message to the ivory poachers that the game is over.
In the past African nations have resisted an ivory ban, but increasingly they realised that the decimation of the elephant herds poses a serious threat to their tourist business. Last month Tanzania and several other African countries called for an amendment to the 102nation Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species that would make the ivory trade illegal worldwide. The amendment is expected to be approved at an October meeting in Geneva and to go into effect next January. But between now and then, conversationists contend, poachers may go on a rampage, killing elephants wholesale, so nations should unilaterally forbid imports right away. The US government brought that argument, and by week’s end the twelvenation European Community had followed with its own ban.

21.Which of the following is the best title for the passage?
A) African Elephants and the Ivory Trade.
B) A Bid to Save the Elephant.
C) The Poachers.
D) Elephants In Danger.

22.According to the passage, “dwindle” means ____.
A) decreaseB) enlarge
C) weakenD) elimilate

23.Since many of the older, bigger- tusked animals have already been destroyed, what did the poacher do?
A) They gave up poaching.
B) They killed more elephants to get the same quantity of ivory.
C) To them, game is over.
D) They realized it was illegal to slaughter elephants.

24.Why did the African nations welcome an ivory ban?
A) The rate of killing has been accelerating.
B) The US government forbids imports of both raw and finished ivory.
C) They realised that the killing of elephants is a serious threat to their tourist business.
D) African people advocated an ivory ban.

25.What’s the author’s attitude?
A) Subjective. B) Neutral.
C) Possimistic. D) Active.

Passage Two
Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage: 

In 58 million homes, the VCR has become nearly as much as the family car. But despite the VCR’s advantages, video buffs complain about its limits. To duplicate prerecorded movies, for instance, requires two VCRs awkwardly cabled together. No wonder, then, that fans at Chicago’s Consumer Electronics Show last week were excited by a new machine that eliminates the drawback. Moreover, its appearance was a triumph over wellwired opposition in Tokyo and Hollywood.
The center of the excitement was the first dualdeck videotape recorder available to US consumers, the VCR2, made by the tiny Arizonabased GoVideo company.The VCR2 enables its users to make highquality duplicates of prerecorded tapes easily. It also lets viewers watch a tape while simultaneously recording off the air. GoVideo hopes to have a limited supply of the VCR2 in stores by Christmastime, priced at just under $1,000.
But the machine’s move from freezeframe to fasterforward has not been easy.
For starters, GoVideo could find no Japanese companies, which control manufact
ure of crucial VCR parts, willing to provide needed components. For another thin
g, US movie studios opposed the machine. So the company sued 15 Japanese and Kor
ean makers, plus the Hollywood studios, claiming restrain of trade. Several manu
factures have now settled with GoVideo, and Korea’s Smsung, is tooling up to produce the VCR2. Meanwhile, Hollywood has modified its opposition because GoVideo agreed to install circuitry that will prevent the VCR2 from copying movies protected by antitheft coding. Still movie makers may see double for a while. Many of the films on store shelves, including hot new rentals like Coming to America and Crocodile Dundee Ⅱ, do not contain the coding.

26.VCR has many advantages, but it also has its limits which lie in ____.
A) it’s not easy to duplicate prerecorded movies
B) it can not duplicate prerecorded movies
C) it can not be operated easily
D) it takes too long to duplicate prerecorded movies

27.According to the passage, the suitable word which can replace “drawback” is ____.
A) breakthrough B) advantage
C) barrier D) function

28.What’s the advantages of VCR2?
A) It can make highquality duplicates of prerecorded tapes easily.
B) It can let viewers watch a tape while simultaneously recording off the air.
C) It can duplicate prerecorded movies clearly.
D) Both A and B.

29.Why did GoVideo company sue Japanese makers?
A) Because Japanese makers are tooling up to produce the VCR2.
B) Because no Japanese companies are willing to sell needed components.
C) Because Japanese makers like to cooperate with Korean counterparts.
D) Because Japanese makers compete with them.

30.Hollywood began to cooperate with GoVideo Company, because ____.
A) US consumers will have to pay rentals for duplicating movies
B) VCR2 will be installed circuitry to prevent it from copying movies protected by antitheft coding
C) with the help of VCR2, the movies are more popular
D) Govideo company can copy movies without the permission of Hollywood studios.
Passage Three
Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage: 

When Anwar out of the way, will Mahathir’s war against foreign speculators actually help turn the economy around? The view of international financial analysts-foreigners-was largely pessimistic. Paul Krugman, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has suggested that the kind of financial restriction imposed by the IMF may not always be appropriate—and that it might be necessary for countries like Malaysia to close the doors and pump up production to buy time for reforms. But after Mahathir took that advice, Krgman quickly addressed an open letter to the Malaysian leader, warning that capital controls can work only as a “stopgap measure(权宜之策)”while putting together more fundamental banking and business reforms. Capital control “put more power into the hands of administrators, and people are rightly worried about abuse of powers,” says Simon Flint of Independent Economic Analysis in Singapore. “Intervention just leads to corruption.”
Mahathir has heard and rejected such arguments before. Since his days fighting the British colonialists, he has dreamed of creating a Malays-assertive, competitive, hardworking who could stand up and be proud. If nothing else, Mahathir and his business friends have always thought big-developing the world’s tallest building, the biggest dam, an Asian Silicon Valley—anything to increase the sense of national pride. Two decades of big ideas and affirmative action policies have helped pull Malays up from poverty. Now Mahathir has lives to see the birth of his New Malay Man-and, in small irony, it has turned out to be Anwar. With all his confidence and worldly sophistication, Anwar epitomize (集中体现) the ideal Mahathir has sought all his life. Last week Mahathir moved to destroy his own creation, the rebel son who has stood beside the old nationalist as the answer to his dream.

31.Why did Paul Krugman regard capital controls as a stopgap measure?
A) Because he was largely pessimistic.
B) Because financial restrition is not appropriate.
C) Because it benefits foreign speculators.
D) Because in the long run, it will lead to abuse of powers.

32.What’s the reaction of Mahathir when he heard “Intervention just leads to corruption.”
A) He has rejected such arguments before.
B) He thought it right and accept it.
C) He regretted what he had done.
D) He moved to destroyed his own creation.

33.Mahathir has always thought something big to increase the sense of national pride which lies in ____.
A) the world’s tallest building
B) the biggest dam
C) an Asian silicon valley
D) A, B and C

34.How long did it take his big ideas to help pull Malays up from poverty?
A) 10 years. B) 20 years.C) 12 years. D) 24 years.

35.Why did Mahathir move to destroy Anuar?
A) Because Anwar did not embody his ideal.
B) Because Anwar turned out to be a total failure.
C) Because Anwar has stood beside the old nationalist.
D) Because his dream become true.

Passage Four
Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage: 
The home service industry in Beijing is expected to become more attractive both as a job and as an industry.
Sources at the Beijing People’s Political Consultative Conference said resistance to home service work is melting away from minds of the city’s laidoff workers.The Conference suggested the establishment of municipal centers which supervise property management, household mending and installation, and house keeping services.Modern city life is creating a need for industrialization home services. This will create job opportunities for laidoff workers, said vice director of the Social Judicial Committee of the Conference.
Beijing residents have long desired a home service industry. The demand is expected to drive new economic growth. There are few high quality home help services in Beijing and customers are always complaining.
In the past, few laidoff workers in Beijing desired to work as home helpers, jobs largely taken by young women from the countryside. At the same time, some city residents have not felt safe trusting rural girls with modern household machines or with their small children. Many people would pay more for reliable house keepers who are more familiar with city life, but they have had no way of getting one, even though the city is home to thousands of laidoff workers.
By the end of June this year, there were 30,600 jobless workers in the city. Most of them are women in their 40’s, who are not blessed with particular skills and who have had their work ethics shaped by the planned economy. Many of them were at a loss when they first realized they had lost their jobs and a way of life they had got used to for decades.
They never imagined being laidoff by stateowned enterprises; they never considered other kinds of employment. For them, the private sector meant taking risks; housekeeping implied lower social status. Gao yunfang, 44, is a pioneer who is breaking the ice. She sells the Beijing Morning Post in the morning, and works at two households in the afternoon. She earns 1,000 yuan per month.
So she no longer worries about her daughter’s tuition at a university in Shanghai.
36.What is talked about in the passage?
A) Home service. B) Modern city life.
C) Laidoff workers. D) Social status.

37.What does the word “laidoff” in the passage mean?
A) Heavilyburdened. B) Old.
C) Inexperienced. D) Jobless.

38.Why didn’t the laidoff workers like to do home services in the past?
A) Low salary.
B) Lower social status.
C) Dirty working condition.
D) Too much extra work.

39.Why were many laidoff workers at a loss?
A) Because they didn’t get used to the new way of life.
B) Because they are too old to find a new job.
C) Because they dislike being laid off.
D) Because they think they lost their social status.

40.In which ways is home service industry good for our society?
A) It meets the needs of modern life.
B) It provides work opportunities for the laidoff workers.
C) It is a new industry.
D) A and B.

The place of the child in society has varied for thousands of years and has been effected by different cultures and religions. In ancient times unwanted children were occasionally abandoned, put to death, exploiting or offered for religious sacrifices, and in any event a large percentage of them didn’t survive their physically hazardous existence to reach to maturity.
In western civilization within the last few hundred years, there have been many changes in attitude with the young. In agricultural Europe, and later with the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the children of the poor work long hours for little or no pay, and there was no public concern on their safety or welfare punishment could be brutal and severe.
By the eighteenth century the harsh and severe methods began to show any change. Society slowly accorded(给予) children a role of importance. Books were written expressly for them and gradually laws were passing for their protection. Efforts were made to create for them a life better than their parents!
In the past few decades parents have become more and more attentive for the needs of their children.Better health care is available and education is no longer reserving for the children from wealthy families.

Passage Two
When John Wilton, writer of Paradise Lost, entered Cambridge University in 1625, he was already skilled in Latin after seven years of studying it as his second language at St. Paul’s school, London, like all English boys who prepared for college in grammar school, he had learned not only to read Latin but also to speak and write it fluently and correctly. His pronunciation of Latin was English, however, and seemed to have sounded strange to his friends when he later visited Italy.
Schoolboys gained their skill in Latin the hard way. They memorized rules to make learning by heart easier. They first made a wordforword translation and then an idiomatic translation into English. As they increased their skill, they translated their English back into Latin without referring to the book and ther compared their translation with the original. The school master was always at hand to encourage them. All schoolmasters believed Latin should be beaten in.
After several years of study, the boys began to write compositions in imitation of the Latin writers they read. And as they bagan to read Latin poems, they began to write poems in Latin. Because Milton was already a poet at ten, his poems were much better than those painfully put together by other boys. During the seven years Milton spent at the university, he made constant use of his command of Latin. He wrote some excellent Latin poems which he published among his works in 1645.

16. Which of the following is true of John Milton’s pronunciation of Latin?
17. What kind of man would you say John Mitton was?

Passage Three
Up to about 1915, movies were short and pragrams were made up of several works. Then, D.U. Griffith and others began to make longer films which provided the same powerful emotional appeal as did melodrama and presented spectacles far beyond what the theater could after. Consequently, after world war Ⅰ increasing numbers of spectators deserted the theater for the movies. This trend was accelerated in the late 1920’s as a result of two new elements. In 1927 sound was added to the previously silent film, and thus one of the theater’s principal claims to superiority vanished. In 1929 a serious economic depression began. Since audiences could go to the movies for a fraction of what it cost to see a play, theater going became a luxury which few could afford, especially as the depression deepened.
By the end of world war Ⅱ, the American theater had been reduced to about thirty theaters in New York city and a small number of touring companies originating there.

18. Why did movies do better than theater?
19. Up to the 1920’s, what was one objection to the films?
20. What made people choose the movie over the theater?

参考范文:
Wealth and Health
With the development of society people attach more importance to wealth and health. But which is more important, wealth or health? Different people have different opinions.
Some people think wealth is more important. They even say, money can not bring you everything, but without money, you can do nothing. In order to accumulate more money they can do anything.
However other people regard health is more important. Once health lost, it is no use having a lot of money. Everybody wants to live a happy life. So they try their best to earn money which can ensure they lead a comfortable life, but if happiness and comfort are achieved at the cost of their health, how can they be happy?
As far as I am concerned, I love wealth, but I value health more, Because health is the premise on which people do anything. Without health money becomes useless. I think, everyone agrees that a wealthy person without good health can not live a happy life. Therefore we should keep fit by every possible means.
