Reading Comprehension

Task 1

Directions: After reading the following passage, you will find 5 questions or unfinished statements, numbered 36 to 40. For each question or

statement there are 4 choices marked A), B), C) and D). You should

make the correct choice and mark the corresponding letter on the

Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.

Falls are the number one cause of death to old people at home. Most old people

can live safely at home if they make a few changes. Falls are common as people are getting older. Up to half of home accidents could be prevented by making some

very simple changes. Here are a few suggestions:

Mark trouble spots with bright tapes. The first and last steps on stairs are

usually high-risk accident areas. Applying bright tapes and using bright light in these areas would make these spots easier to see.

Put grab bars (扶手) in the bathroom. A large number of falls occur in the bathroom. This is unfortunate (不幸的) because it’s easy to make the area safe from accidents. Putting grab bars in the bathroom gives people something to hang on to. Invest in a personal alarm. A personal alarm can be started if a person falls or otherwise gets in trouble. With the push of a button, the alarm automatically sends a signal, which gets someone to call and see if the person needs help.

Part III Reading

Comprehension

Task 1

A car is made up of more than 30,000 parts. Each part in a new car is as weak as a baby. So a new car requires proper care and servicing. If you're unfamiliar with the parts, you have to read through the owner's instructions carefully.

First of all, the brakes (刹车) of your car are important for safety (安全) reasons. Having them checked regularly can reduce the risks of accidents. Another important thing to consider is engine care. Always remember that the life and performance of your car engine depend on the engine oil. Replace the engine oil when recommended. If you feel the engine is very hot especially during summer it is probably because the cooling system doesn't work well. You'd better get the cooling system serviced before the start of summer.

In a word, timely and proper servicing is an important task for car owners. Good servicing can not only extend the life of your newborn baby, but also ensure your safety, and the safety of those who share the road with you.
