Ⅳ. Read the following four passages and answer the questions after each passage. (35 points

2point for each question)

Passage One

Is the literary critic like the poet, responding creatively, intuitively, subjectively to the written word as the poet responds to human experience?Or is the critic more like a scientist following a series of demonstrable, verifiable steps, using an objective method of analysis?

For the woman who is a practitioner of feminist literary criticism, the subjectivity versus objectivity or critic-as-artist-or-scientist debate has special significance. For her questions is not only academic but political as well and her definition will court special risks whichever side of the issue it favors. If she defines feminist criticism as objective and scientific---- a valid, verifiable, intellectual method that anyone, whether man or woman, can perform---- the definition not only precludes the critic-as-artist approach, but may also impede accomplishment of the utilitarian political objectives of those who seek to change the academic establishment and its thinking, especially about sex roles. If she defines feminist criticism as creative and intuitive, privileged as art, then her work becomes vulnerable to the prejudice of stereotypic ideas about the ways in which women think, and will be dismissed by much of the academic establishment. Because of these prejudices, women who use an intuitive approach in their criticism may find themselves charged with inability to be analytical to be objective or to think critically. Whereas men may be free to claim the role of critic as artist, women run different professional risks when they choose intuition and private experience as critical method and defense.

These questions are political in the sense that the debate over them will inevitably be less an exploration of abstract matters in a spirit of disinterested inquiry than an academic power struggle in which the careers and professional fortunes of many women scholars only now entering the academic profession in substantial numbers will be at stake, and with them the chances for a distinctive contribution to humanistic understanding, a contribution that might be an important influence against sexism in our society.

As long as the academic establishment continues to regard objective analysis as “ masculine” and an intuitive approach as “ feminine ” the theoretician must steer a delicate philosophical course between the two. If she wishes to construct a theory of feminist criticism, she would be well advised to place it with in the framework of a general theory of the critical process that is neither purely objective nor purely intuitive. Her theory is then more likely to be compared and

contrasted with other theories of criticism with some degree of dispassionate distance.

Passage 2

One theory and practice in the area of sentencing have undergone a gradual but dramatic changes through the years. Primitive man believed that a crime created an imbalance which

could be rectified only by punishing the wrongdoer. Thus, sentencing was initially vengeance-oriented. Gradually, emphasis began to be placed on the deterrent value of a sentence upon future wrongdoing.

Though deterrence is still an important consideration, increased emphasis on the possibility of reforming the offender-----of returnig him to the community a useful citizen -----bars the harsh penalties once imposed and brings into play a new set of sentencing criteria. Today, each offender is viewed as a unique individual ,and the sentencing judge seeks to know why he has committed the crime and what are the chances of a repetition of the offense. The judge’s prime objective is not to punish but to treat .

This emphasis on treatment of the individual has created a host of new problems. In seeking to arrive at the best treatment for individual prisoners, judges must weigh an imposing array of factors. I believe that the primary aim of every sentence is the prevention of future crime. Little can be done to correct past damage , and a sentence will achieve its objective to the extent that it upholds general respect for the law, discourages those tempted to commit similar crimes, and leads to the rehabilitation of the offender, so that he will not run afoul of the law again. Where the offender is so hardened from society so that he will be unable to do any further harm. The balancing of these interacting, and often mutually antagonistic factors requires more than a good heart and a sense of fair play on the judge’s part, although these are certainly prerequisites. It requires the judge to know as much as he can about the prisoner before him. He should know the probable effects of sentences upon those who might commit similar crimes and how the prisoner is likely to react to imprisonment or probation. Because evaluation of these various factors may differ from judge to judge, the same offense will be treated differently by different judges.

The task of impro ving our sentencing techniques is so important to the nation’s moral health that it deserves far more careful attention than it now receives from the bar and many civic-minded individuals who usually lead even the judges in the fight for legal reform approach this subject with apathy or with erroneous preconceptions.

8. What is the main idea of the passage?

A.The sentencing technique should be reformed.

B.The objective of sentence is to avoid further offence.

C.The civic-minded people are apathy.

D.The judges should have a good heart and a sense of fair play.

9.From the second paragraph, we can infer that________.

A.the judge must investigate the reason of the crimes

B.deterrence is not important now

C.despite of their wrongdoings, the rights of the offenders should be ensured now

D.the punishment should be as harsh as possible

10.The word “rehabilitation” in the third paragraph probably means________

A.live in a new place

B.begin a new way of life

C.obtain a life once more

D.give others a new life

11. Which of the following does the author think is not true according to the text?

A. There are many factors that will influence the sentence of an offence.

B. New concept of sentence also brings new problems.

C. Now the attention given to sentence is careful enough.

D. Some of the professional people are not responsible enough

12. The author’s attitude toward the future of legal reform is ________

A. pessimistic

B. apathetic

C. warm-hearted

D. optimistic

Passage Three

Suppose you are driving on a highway with three lanes going in your direction and you come upon a toll plaza with six toll booths are off to right. Which lane should you choose? It is usually the case that the wait time is approximately the same no matter what you do. There are usually enough people searching for the shortest line so as to make all the lines about the same length. If one line is much shorter than the others, cars will quickly move into it until the lines are equalized. There are usually enough drivers searching for the fastest line to equalize the average wait time. The term profit in economics has a very precise meaning. Economists, however, often loosely refer to "good deals" or profitable ventures with no risk as profit opportunities. Using the term loosely, a profit opportunity exists at the toll booths if one line is shorter than the others. The general view of economics is that profit opportunities are rare. At any one time there are

many people searching for such opportunities, and as a consequence few exist. At toll booths it is seldom the case that one line is substantially shorter than the others.

Another example of a possible profit opportunity is the purchase and exchanges of foreign currencies. The prices of these currencies are determined in world money markets. If, for example, the mark-franc price is too low with respect to the other prices, there is an immediate rush to buy marks and sell francs, not by ordinary citizens at bank windows, but by a few large currency traders in Tokyo, London, etc. who watches prices every minute. Such a rush drives up the mark-franc price to the no-profit-opportunity point. Markets like this, where any profit opportunities are eliminated almost instantaneously, are said to be efficient markets. The common language way of expressing the efficient markets hypothesis is “there's no such thing as a free lunch. ”There are thousands of individuals each day looking for hot tips in the market, and if a particular tip about a stock is valid there will be an immediate rush to buy the stock, which will quickly drive its price up.

This economist ′s view that there are very limited profit opportunities around can, of course, be carried too far. There is a story about two people walking along, one an economist and one not. The non-economist sees a $ 20 bill on the sidewalk and says, “There’s a bill on the sidewalk.” The economist replies, "That is not possible. If there were, somebody would already have picked it up."

13. According to the first passage, why all the lines on a highway with tool booths are


A. Because there are too many people on the high way.

B. Because many drivers are searching for the fastest line thus all the lines are


C. Because there are toll booths in each line and the drivers have to wait to pass them.

D. Because the shortest line has more people and the longest line has few people, and

the wait time is almost the same.

14. How does profit opportunity relate to the toll booths in the first example?

A. Both of them are the object people are pursuing.

B. There is no relation between the two.

C. There are a great many of profit opportunities in the toll booths.

D. The profit opportunity in economic are as rare as the toll booths.

15. What happens to the market when the mark-franc price is low?

A. People will rush to sell marks and buy francs and thus everyone makes big profit.

B. The mark-franc price will begin to rising and profit opportunity will disappear

C. The market of foreign currencies will become an efficient market.

D. People will go to large currency traders in Tokyo and London to watch the change of


16. According to the second paragraph, what kind of market is called efficient market?

A.A market that doesn't provide free lunch is an efficient market.

B. A market where any profit opportunities are removed at once is an efficient market.

C.A market that is driven by individuals' activities is said to be an efficient market.

D.A market where people are looking for hot tips is said to be an efficient market.

17. What is the main idea of this passage?

A. In efficient markets, there is limited profit opportunity because every one is

searching for it.

B .Everyone is profit-driven, and it is the reason why they cannot get"free lunch".

C. There is an analogy between efficient market and highway with toll plaze.

D. Economists know well that there will be no bills in the sideway.

Ⅴ.Translation (30points)

1. Translate the following passages into Chinese. Give the number of each passage in your answer sheet.

A life of slothful ease, a life of that peace which springs merely from lack either of desire or of power to strive after great things is as little worthy of a nation as an individual .

We do not admire the man of timid peace. We admire the man who embodies victorious efforts, the man who never wrongs his neighbor, who is prompt to help a friend, but who has those virile qualities necessary to win in the stern strife of actual life. It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. In this life we get nothing save by effort. Freedom from effort in the present merely means that there has been effort stored up in the past. A man can be freed from the necessity of work only by the fact that he or his fathers before him have worked to

good purpose. If the freedom thus purchased is used right, and the man still does actual work, though of a different kind, whether as a writer or a general, whether in the field of politics or in the field of exploration and adventure, he shows he deserves his good fortune.

But if he treats this period of freedom from the need of actual labor as a period, not of preparation, but of mere enjoyment, even though perhaps not of vicious enjoyment, he shows that he is simply a cumberer on the earth’s surface; and he surely unfits himself to hold his own place with his fellows, if the need to do so should again arise. A mere life of ease is not in the end a very satisfactory life, and above all, it is a life which ultimately unfits those who follow it for serious work in the world.

As it is with the individual, so it is with the nation. It is a base untruth to say that happy is the nation that has no history. Thrice happy is the nation that has a glorious history. Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.
