Section B (22%)

Directions: Read the following three 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)

A Conversation between Mr. Wordy and Mr. Terse

T:Don’t you think we should express ourselves in English better and us e words more economically?

W: Yes. It is an unrealistic illusion to separate such principles from language ; they should be united as one.

T:Well, you should practice what you think is right. Why didn’t you just leave out the word “unrealistic”? You can’t have a “realistic illusion”, can you? And you should have left out “as one”. You can’t be united “as two”. To unite means to become one. You’re always making that sort of mistake.

W:That’s a groundless fabrication (捏造).

T: There you go again. A fabrication is a statement with no foundation. If it’s not groundless, it’s not a fabrication.

W:I really don’t see the important significance of all these criticisms of yours.

T:Well, you certainly can’t see the “unimportant significance” of them. If a thing’s significant it’s important, and if it’s important it’s significant. What’s the point of saying “ important significance”? It’s about the same as “important importance”.

W: If you could just stop interrupting me all the time I’d tell you about the meeting I’ve just been

to.

T: Please do.

W: Well, the speaker just came to our country not long ago.

T: Naturally.

W: What do you mean naturally?

T: If he just came it was not long ago.

W: As I was just saying when I was so rudely interrupted: the speaker arrived here after a long journey of 5,000 miles.

T:He couldn’t very well have made a “short journey of 5,000 miles”, could he? Unless he was a spaceman.

W: The hall was packed full and the audience shouted slogans loudly.

T:It couldn’t be “packed empty”, could it? And they couldn’t “shout quietly”.

W: He said that the imperialists had been bullying his people arbitrarily (专横地).

T:You wouldn’t expect them “to bully with reason and restraint”.

W: But they have been openly exposed.

T:They could hardly be “exposed secretly”.

W: The people hate the imperialists very much.

T:You can’t “hate anyone slightly”.

W: And the peopl e’s resistance movement has powerful strength.

T:I never heard of “powerless strength”.

W: And the imperialists will share the same fate as all reactionaries.

T:They couldn’t “share a different fate”.

W:I suppose they couldn’t. I’m beginning to understa nd your idea about being economical in the use of words. I shall try to master it well.

T: Good. But first let me point out that you can’t master anything badly”.

56.Mr. Wordy likes to use ________ while Mr. Terse ________.

A. long words, likes to use short words

B. too many words, hates that

C. big words, uses small words

D. complex words, important expressions

57. Mr. Terse ________ Mr Wordy by saying “There you go again”.

A. hurt

B. stopped

C. warned

D. advised

58. Which of the following statements is NOT TURE?

A. To a spaceman, 5,000 miles is a short distance.

B. Mr. Terse believes one can speak English better if he speaks economically.

C. It is meaningless to add “important” to “significance”.

D. Mr. Terse interrupted Mr. Wordy purposefully.

Becoming a teacher is one of the best ways to make a difference in the life of a child and even older students. Here are some great scholarships and grant opportunities to get the ball rolling on your dreams of becoming a teacher.

Straightforward Teacher Program

This is one of the most popular and unique scholarships available for students working towards becoming teachers. The foundation offers their scholarships every three months as

opposed to each year. During each payment, four students receive a $2,000 scholarship.

Prezell Robinson Scholarship Program

While this scholarship is available only to students in the state of North Carolina, it is so incredibly helpful that many students choose to study in the state for the only purpose of receiving it. It is offered to college students who come from low-income families that are interested in pursuing a long term career in education at any level.

New York State Scholarship Program

Officials in the state of New York founded this program to award students who want to give back to their community through their ability to teach. The catch for this scholarship is that the students must be pursuing a teaching career in mathematics or science at the secondary level.

Also, because the program was designed to improve the education system in New York, the candidates must sign a service contract agreeing to work full time within the state for at least five years after graduation.

Coca-Cola Scholarships

You may have many opportunities for grants and scholarships through The Coca Cola Foundation. There is the Coca Cola Teaching Foundation that will provide free money for students pursuing an education in the teaching field. Students who maintain an outstanding scholastic record have chances to be awarded special scholarships.

Funds For Teachers

Not all scholarships or grants are for students entering or already in college. The Funds for Teachers scholarships are for graduates who are already working in the field, but want to improve their possibilities, skills and education in an effort to increase their ability to teach the students that cross their path more effectively. Teachers in Florida are applicable no matter where they teach or what subject they specialize in.

59. How many students get their scholarships each year according to the Straightforward Teacher

Program?

A. Four

B. Six

C. Eight

D. Sixteen

60. The reason why many students choose to study in the state of North Carolina is that ________.

A. They can pursue a long term career in education

B. There are some good universities in North Carolina

C. They can receive Prezell Robinson Scholarships

D. They can go to college more easily.

61. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?

A. The students who gain New York Scholarships should offer their services to the city of

New York for at least five years.

B. Coca-Cola Scholarship goes to the student who must be a science or math teacher after

graduation.

C. Prezell Robinson Scholarships are for those whose parents obtain small incomes.

D. Besides the Funds for Teachers, the other four scholarships are supplied either to college

students or to high school students.

62. Who can obtain the chance to get the Funds for Teachers Scholarships?

A. The college graduates teaching in Florida.

B. The college graduates who are working as teachers.

C. The teachers who want to increase their ability.

D. The students who graduated with honors and now serve as teachers.

C

Polls can provide important guidance for politicians, but there are times when it is foolish and dangerous to rely on a temporarily misinformed public for a political compass. The current debate over Social Security provides one of the most compelling examples in modern history of the pitfalls of poll-driven political strategy.

Yesterday two leading Democratic strategists publicly took their party to task for their"just say no" approach to the new President's program. "To say there is no problem simply puts Democrats out of the conversation for the great majority of the country that want political leaders to secure this very important retirement program," they warned, "V oters are looking for reform, change, and new ideas, but Democrats seem stuck in concrete."

Stuck, indeed. To be more exact, they are holding their ground and refusing to surrender to a president who is once again manufacturing a "crisis" for a political purpose. And why should they do otherwise, when this strategy is clearly working?

Let's start with the facts. According to the new President, Social Security can pay all promised benefits for the next 37 years without any changes at all. Even if nothing were done by 2043, the program would still pay a higher real benefit than what people receive today.

And even looking into the future of the 75-year planning period, the shortfall is less than what we fixed in the '50s, '60s, and '80s. In other words, Social Security is financially stronger today than it has been throughout most of its history.

So this attack on Social Security has nothing to do with the solvency (偿付能力) of the program. Nonetheless last week, a Quinnipiac University poll found that respondents, by a 49 to 42 percent margin, believed that Social Security would not be able to pay them a benefit when they retire. But this is a ridiculous idea, based completely on misinformation. It is even more far fetched(牵强的)than the notion, which also commanded a majority before the invasion of Iraq, that Saddam Hussein was responsible for the massacre of 9/11.

In the case of Social Security, there is no dispute about the facts. There are just a few cheap verbal and accounting tricks that have been used to convince the public that Social Security faces serious problems. These are easily refuted.

The same Quinnipiac poll showed that 59 percent of Americans disapprove of the way the president is handling Social Security, with only 28 percent approving. It makes no political sense to pretend that this attack on our nation's most successful and popular government program is actually an attempt to insure its solvency. Even in politics, there are times when honesty is the best policy.

63. What can we know about the Democrats, according to the author?

A. they want to help secure the retirement program.

B. they refuse to admit that the Social Security program has been successful.

C. they are making efforts to solve the crisis of the Social Security program.

D. they organize polls in order to gain political interests.

64. The author raised the example of Saddam Hussein in order to show that ________.

A. the invasion of Iraq represented the wills of common people.

B. no evidence had come up to prove the relationship between Saddam Hussein and the

massacre of 9/11.

C. sometimes the public without proper information will draw foolish conclusions.

D. it was wrong for the government to rely on the public for important political decisions.

65. According to the author, which of the following is correct?

A. There is no point in worrying about the solvency of the Social Security program.

B. The majority of the public will accept the Social Security program in the near future.

C. Only the baby boomers should worry about the future days when they grow old.

D.The Democrats attack the Social Security program in order to question its solvency.

66. By saying "honesty is the best policy", the author seems to disapprove of _______.

A. the Quinnipiac University who organized the poll.

B. the present administration who initiated the Social Security program.

C. the ill-informed public who worried about their future.

D. those Democrats who wanted to gain political interests through this incident.

复旦附中18届月考(有答案)

“My work is done.” Those words were some of the last penn ed by George Eastman. He included them in his suicide note. They mark an ignoble end to a noble life, the leave taking of a truly great man. The same words could now be said for the company he left behind. Actually, the Eastman Kodak Company is through. It has been mismanaged financially, technologically and competitively. _____67_____ One of America’s bedrock brands is about to disappear, the Kodak moment has passed.

But George Eastman is not how he died, and the Eastman Kodak Company is not how it is being killed. Though the ends be needless and premature, they must not be allowed to overshadow the greatness that came before. Few companies have done so much good for so many people, or defined and lifted so profoundly the spirit of a nation and perhaps the world. _____68_____ Kodak served mankind through entertainment, science, national defense and the stockpiling

of family memories. Kodak took us to the top of Mount Suribachi and to the Sea of Tranquility. It introduced us to the merry old Land of Oz and to stars from Charlie Chaplin to John Wayne, and Elizabeth Taylor to Tom Hanks. _____69_____ When that sailor kissed the nurse, and when the spy planes saw missiles in Cuba, Kodak was the eyes of a nation. From the deck of the Missouri to the grandeur of Monument Valley, Kodak took us there. Virtually every significant image of the 20th Century is a gift to generation from the Eastman Kodak Company. _____70_____ Yes, there were photographers, and for relatively large sums of money they would take unnatural pictures in studios and formal settings. But most people couldn’t afford photographs, and so all they had to remember distant loved ones, or earlier times of their lives, was memory. Children could not know what their parents had looked like as young people, grandparents far away might never learn what their grandchildren looked like. Eastman Kodak allowed memory to move from the uncertainty of recollection, to the permanence of a photograph. But it wasn’t just people whose features were savable; it was events, the precious times that families cherish. The Kodak moment, was humanity’s moment.

Possible version

Sample 1:

Despite the advanced life we have, several problems still bother us. Land, noise, air and water pollution is threatening our health; population explosion causes resource exploitation, starvation and diseases; atomic bomb threatens human civilization; worsening relationships and values lead to isolation and loneliness. The earth being the only home to us and future generations, it’s urgent to solve those problems. (60 words)

IV. Summary Writing

Directions: Read the following passage. Summarize the main idea and the main point(s) of the passage in no more than 60 words. Use your own words as far as possible.

In the new century, human beings will be filled with hope and live a more advanced life. However, man will also have to face some problems that will rob human beings of their existence.

First of all, pollution of all forms such as land pollution, noise pollution, air pollution and water pollution are worsening with each passing day. People complain all over the world it is becoming harder to breathe and water is turning undrinkable. Also forests are being felled at a very fast rate. The pollutions are getting so terrible that in s ome countries we can’t find clean rivers and white clouds in the sky!

Additionally, the explosion of population in some parts of the world is showing its terrible results. Human beings will have over used the earth’s resources, and people will run a high r isk of starvation and diseases resulting from overcrowding. In the end, man would be forced out of the earth if the present trend were not reversed.

What’s more, in the past century we had many disastrous wars. But there is still potential that the atomic bomb will be used by some politicians in order to keep regional hegemony. If it should

happen, the exp1osion could easily lead to the destruction of civilization.

More seriously, the depersonalization of human relationships and the weakening of spiritual values are worsening due to the stress caused by the busy schedules and the extreme pursuit of money. This will further contribute to man’s isolation and loneliness.

Apparently, with all these problems facing human beings, it seems to be overwhelmingly urgent to conquer them one by one because we have only one earth and it is our home. In the new century, we must try our best to heal the world and make it a better place for you, for me and for the children who will come to this world.

(312 WORDS)

Sample 2:

Although our life will be promising in the future, it is still threatened by some problems, such as various pollutions, exploded population, potential wars, and the worsening of human relations, which may lead to bad living environment, starvation and diseases, regional inequality, loneliness and even the damage of human civilization. For our future generations, we must conquer them all.
