Part III Reading Comprehension

Direction: There are several 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 marked the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single lien through the center (40%, 20×2 points)

Question 36 to 40 are based on the following passage:

Cars of 2050 will travel the nation’s highways in never-before-dream-of safety, comfort and convenience. These cars will float along never touching the ground and therefore will have no need for wheels.

Annoying highway vibrations, caused by the rotations of the disc-and-tire-wheels, will be things of the past. The coming highway passenger cars will literally fly above the road, supported on columns of air compressed by turning-driven(涡轮驱动的) fans.

The car without wheels has been called a “flying car”, and, in a sense, that’s just what it is, however, it will not back out of the family garage, start down the street, and then suddenly go quickly upward heading for some distant point. On the contrary, to avoid problems in aerial navigation, the wheelless vehicle probably will travel no more than three inches above road surface. It will travel over fairly rough road and even over smooth water!

The inevitable problems of maritime(水上的) regulations, severe weather conditions, and running out of fuel in remote areas all will require new concepts of operation, servicing and vehicle regulation.

36. The author believes that cars of the future _____.

A. will be replaced by airplanes

B. will have wheels unlike those of today

C. will use columns of air instead of wheels

38. The car without wheels has been called a “flying car” because ___.

A. it travels a few inches above the ground

B. it can fly as a plane does

C. it moves at a very high speed

D. it can travel over smooth water

39. Where is a wheelless car LEAST fit to travel?

B. Over rough country road

C. Over highways

D. Over waterfalls

40. Wheelless cars will _____.

A. eliminate all traffic problems

B. create new traffic problems

C. eliminate parking problems

D. Both A and C

Question 41 to 45 are based on the following passage:

About 70 million Americans are trying to lose weight. That is almost I out of every 3 people in the United States. Some people go on diets. This means they eat less of certain foods, especially fats and sugars. Other people exercise with special equipment, take diet pills, or even have surgery. Losing weight is hard work, and it can also cost a lot of money. So why do so many people in the United States want to lose weight?

Many people in the United States worry about not looking young and attractive. For many people, looking good also means being thin. Other people worry about their health. Many doctors say being overweight is not healthy. But are Americans really fat?

Almost 30 million American weigh at least 20 percent more than their ideal weight. In fact, the United States is the most overweight country in the world. “The stored fat of adult Americans weighs 2.3 trillion pounds.” Says University of Massachusetts anthropologist(人类学家) George Armelagos. He says burning off that stored energy would produce enough power for 900,000 cars to go 12,000 miles.

Losing weight is hard work, but most people want to find a fast and easy way to take off fat. Bookstores sell lots of diet books. These books tell readers how to lose weight. Each year, dozens of new books like these are written. Each one promises to get rid of fat.

41. Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a way of losing weight?

B. diet books are usually helpful

C. there are lots of ways of losing weight

D. bookstores are keeping their promises

45. It can be concluded form the passage that ____.

A. people think too much of their appearance

B. there is not a sure way of losing weight as yet

C. surgery is the fastest way of losing weight

D. going on diet is a safe way of losing weight

Question 46 to 50 are based on the following passage:

Modern mass-production methods lower the cost of making goods and this give us better values. At the same time, American ingenuity(独创性)and science are constantly at work, improving the quality of products. In this way, better quality products at good values are continually being brought to the people of all income groups.

As an example of how this works, when facial tissues (面巾纸) were first put on the market in 1924, they were made in limited quantities and sold at 65 cents per box of 200. People like these facial tissues immediately and began asking for them when they went into different stores. Because there was such a demand for the product, manufacturers began making tissues in larger and larger quantities. Because the manufacturers were making tissues in greater quantities, their production costs were lowered, so that the cost of tissues went down. IN the meanwhile, the quality of facial tissues was constantly improving, because more manufacturers went into business of making tissues, and each manufacturer strove to make his product better than his competitors’. Today, instead of costing 65 cents, a box of 200 tissues costs around one-third of that price, and they are both softer and stronger.

When people are free to compete---when they are free to make more things and make them better---everyone benefits.

46. In regard to the production of goods in greater quantities, the author states that ___.

A. the price of the goods should drop

B. the quality of the goods should improve

C. the price and quality should both rise

D. the quality should rise and the price should drop

47. When the demand for facial tissues increased _____.

A. the supply was quickly exhausted

B. its price went up

C. the manufacturers tried to improve its quality

D. more manufacturers went into the business of making tissues

48. Improved quality of facial tissues resulted from _____.

A. mass-production methods

B. popular demand for a better product

C. a decrease in production costs

D. competition among manufacturers

49. According to the passage we can see that lower prices and better quality occur ____.

A. as a result of the effect of one on the other

B. always at the same time

C. independently of each other

D. when the demand exceeds the supply

50. The author believe that in a nation where free enterprise(自由企业制) exists, manufacturers will produce ____.

A. as much as they like

B. better quality merchandise (商品)

C. more than they are able to sell

D. both A and B

Question 51 to 55 are based on the following passage:

For any Englishman, there can never be any discussion as to who is the world’s greatest dramatist. Only one name can possibly suggest itself to him: that of William Shakespeare. Every Englishman has some knowledge, however slight, of the work of our greatest writer. All of us use words, phrases and quotations form Shakespeare’s writing that have become part of the common property of English-speaking people. Most of the time we are probably part of the common unaware of the source of the words we use, rather like the old lady who was taken to see a performance of Hamlet and complained that it was full of well-known proverbs and quotations.

Shakespeare,more perhaps than any other writer,makes full use of the great resources of the English language. Most of us use about five thousand words in our normal employment of English;Shakespeare in his works used about twenty-five thousand!There is probably no better way for a foreigner to appreciate the richness and variety of the English language than by studying the various ways in which Shakespeare uses it. Such a study is well worth the effort (it is not,of course,recommended to beginners),even though some aspects of English usage,and the meaning of many words,have changed since Shakespeare’s day.

B. A play recommended by Shakespeare

C. A play appreciated by Shakespeare

D. A play people have been complaining about

Saving the Earth

How to protect the environment has become one of the biggest problems in the world. There are many kinds of pollutions around us, such as air pollution, noise pollution, water pollution and light pollution. We can find that rubbish not only pollutes our environment but also harms people’s health. So we should not throw rubbish everywhere. Some factories pour waste water into the rivers and the lakes. The behavior of these factories will pollute the water, and sometimes it can kill the fish living in them.

We have only one earth. We must keep our environment clean and tidy. We must try our best to protect her, and make our home more beautiful.
