III. Reading Comprehension (30 points, 2 points for each item)
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.
In reading the world's great literature on human excellence and personal success, I've found that to launch ourselves into a life of true success we need to satisfy one basic condition: pursue our vision with stubborn (顽强的) consistency. The biggest difference between people who succeed and those who don't is not usually talent but persistence.
On my way to work one morning, I met Rudy Ruettiger, who is now a motivational speaker. He has grown up in Joliet, listening to stories about Notre Dame and dreaming of one day playing football there. Friends told him he wasn't a good enough student to be admitted. So he gave up his dream and went to work in a power plant.
Then a friend was killed in an accident at work. Shocked, Rudy suddenly realized that life is too short not to pursue your dreams.
In 1972, at the age of 23, he enrolled at Holy Cross Junior College in South Bend, Ind. He got good enough grades to transfer to Notre Dame, where he finally made the football team as a member of the “scout team”, the players who help the team prepare for games.
Rudy was living his dream, almost. But he wasn't allowed to suit up for the games themselves. The next year, after Rudy requested it, the coach told Rudy he could put on his uniform for the season's final game. And there he sat, on the Notre Dame bench during the game. A student started shouting, “ We want Rudy! ” Soon others joined in. Finally, at the age of 27, with 27 seconds left to play, Rudy Ruettiger was sent onto the field-and made the final tackle (阻截). So his team won the game.
When I met Rudy 17 year later, it was in the parking lot outside Notre Dame stadium (体育场), where a camera crew was filming scenes for Rudy, a motion picture about his life. His story illustrates that there is no limit to where your dreams can take you.

C. he was disappointed in his future
D. he was shocked by his friend's death
24. Rudy was transferred to Notre Dame .

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.
NASA, the U.S. space agency, believes there's a good chance that we're not alone in the universe. Last fall, NASA began a new project called the High Resolution Microwave Survey (HRMS). Its aim: to find evidence of life in one of the billions of galaxies in the universe.
The search for intelligent life on other planets isn't new. It began almost 100 years ago. That's when scientists built a huge transmitter to send radio waves into space. Scientists thought smart beings on other planets might pick up the signals.
Scientists also have sent a message about humans and our solar system to a nearby constellation ( 星座 ). But because the constellation is 25,000 light years away, a return message wouldn't reach Earth for 50,000 years! So don't wait up for an answer.
So far, no extraterrestrial ( 地球外的 ) beings that we know of have returned our “ calls. ” But according to Dr. Jill Tarter, an HRMS scientist, we haven't exactly had our ears wide open. “ Now, however, ” says Dr. Tarter, “ we've built the tools we need to listen well.”
Last October, Dr. Tarter switched on the largest radio receiver in the world. It's an enormous metal bowl stretching 1,000 feet across a valley in Puerto Rico.
Meanwhile, another NASA scientist turned on a huge radio receiver in California's Mojave Desert. NASA hopes these big dishes-and others around the world-will pick up radio signals from new world.
Dr. Frank Drake has been searching for life in outer space for years. He explains the HRMS project this way: To listen to your radio, you move the tuner on the dial until the channels come in loud and clear: Now imagine radio receivers that scan our galaxy “listening” to 14 million channels every second. That's what NASA's radio receivers in Puerto Rico and California are doing.
But that's not all. Powerful computers hooked to the receivers examine every signal carefully. The computers try to match the signals to ones that scientists already recognize, such as human-made signals. If they can't, Drake and Tarter check on them. “It could prove there is radio technology elsewhere in the universe, ” says Dr. Tarter. “ And that would mean we're not alone. ” 26、NASA scientists started a new project in order to _______.
A、discover life in other galaxies
B、send human beings into space
C、find evidence of a new galaxy
D、confirm the number of galaxies
27、According to Dr.Jill Tarter ,the reason why we haven't received any return any return messages from outer space is that_______.
A、our ears are not sharp enough to hear them
B、our equipment hasn't been good enough
C、it takes millions of yuars for them to reach us
D、it takes quite a long time to send them
28、Dr.Jill Tarter compares the large receiver to _______.
A、the human ear
C、a metal bowl
D、a huge dish
29、According to Dr.Frank Drake ,NASA's radio receivers in Puerto Rico and California are _______.
A、trying to check on every channel carefully
B、moving the tuner on the dial for clear channels
C、scanning the universe for possible signals
D、picking up radio signals from new world
30、The best title of this passage is ________.
A、Signals from the Space
B、The Invention of New Radio Receivers
C、The Intelligent Life in Outer Space
D、NASA Listens for Space Neighbors
Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.
Even a careful motorist( 开汽车的人 ) may commit a motoring offence ( 违法 ).In this case, he will appear in a police court .This is a court ruled by a judge without a jury ( 陪审团 ).A judge has powers to pass sentence for relatively minor offences only ;serious charges are dealt with by a judge and a jury.
In certain cases, a motoring offender may choose to go before a judge and a jury ,instead of appearing before just a judge .A court is also used for the conduct of preliminary investigations to dedermine whether or not a motoring offender shall appear for trial in a higher court.
When his case comes up in court ,the motorist hears his name called by the clerk of the court, and comes forward to identify himself.The judge then calls for the policeman who charged the offender and asks him to give evidence.
He is expected to ive an account of what happened when the offence was committed and to mention any special circumstances.For example the offence may have been partly due to the foolishness of another motorist.It would be unwise for the motoring offender to exaggerate this.It will not help his case to try to blame someone else for his own mistake.
If you are guilty ,it is of course wise to admit it and say you're sorry for committing the offence and taking up the court's time .Judges are not heartless and a motorist may be lucky enough to hear one say ：“ You've got good reasons ,but you have broken the law and I'll have to impose a fine .Pay five pounds.Next case.”
Some short-tempered people forget that both policemen and judges have a public duty to perform,and aren rude to them. This does not pay! A judge will not let off an offender merely because he is respectful,but a polite law-breaker may certainly hope that the judge will extend him what tolerance the law permits.
31、Even a careful motorist may be asked to go to a police court for______.
B、a motoring offence
C、refusing to pay a fine

A、overstate another motorist's mistake
B、mention someone else's foolishness
C、argue that he is not guilty

35、If a man knows that he is guilty, he should ______.
A、be polite to the policeman and the judge
B、try his best to appear before just a judge

65.Either of these factors could account for some individuals ------------(be) able to do well using inefficient methods.
When someone has deeply hurt you, it can be extremely difficult to let go of your anger. But forgiveness is possible --- and it can be surprisingly helpful to your physical and mental health. Indeed, research has shown that people who forgive report more energy, better appetite and better sleep patterns.
So when someone has hurt you, calm yourself. Talk a couple of deep breaths and think of something that gives you pleasure: a beautiful scene in nature, someone you love. Don't wait for an apology( 道歉 ) 。 Keep in mind that forgiveness does not necessarily mean accepting the action of the person who upset you. Try to see thing from the other person's perspective. You may realize that he or she was acting out of ignorance, fear—even love. You may want to write a letter to yourself from that person's point of view.
