Almost every day we come across situations in which we have to make decisions one way or another. Choice, we are given to believe, is a right. But for a good many people in the world, in rich and poor countries, choice is a luxury, something __41__but hard to get, not a right. And for those who think they are exercising their right to make choices, the whole system is merely an illusion, a false idea created by companies and advertisers hoping to sell their products. The endless choice gives birth to anxiety in people’s lives. Buying something as basic as a coffee pot is not exactly __42__. Easy access to a wide range of everyday goods leads to a sense of powerlessness in many people, __43__in the costomer giving up and walking away, or just buying an unsuitable item that is not really wanted. Recent studies in England have shown that many electrical goods __44__ in almost every family are not __45__ needed. More difficult decision-making is then either avoided or trusted into the hands of the __46__, lifestyle instructors, or advisors. It is not just the availability of the goods that is the problem, but the speed with which new types of products come on the market. Advances in __47__ and production help quicken the process. Products also need to have a short lifespan so that the public can be persuaded to replace them within a short time. The __48__ example is computers, which are almost out-of-date once they are bought. This indeed makes selection a problem. So gone are the days when one could just walk with ease into a shop and buy one thing: no choice, no __49__. III. Reading Comprehension Section A Directions: For each blank in the following passage there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context. Nothing can better illustrate the failure of education in this country than the contrast between millions of college graduates finding it hard to get a proper job every year and the lack of workers in the more industrialized regions.

According to news from Dongguan (东莞), one of the __50__ manufacturing centers in the Pearl River Delta (珠江三角洲) region in South China, ―over 90 percent‖ factories have said they are finding __51__ difficult to employ people from the second half of 2009, when the __52__ began picking up and overseas orders restarted pouring in. Running to full capacity seems a dream that the factories had__53__. An awkward reality is that only few, __54__, of the new college graduates could really fill the vacancies because the trainings they have received are entirely __55__ from the demands of the jobs. Nor will Chinese cities have enough workforce if they pursue a development model other than export-based manufacturing. The __56__ for that is simple: The knowledge about management graduates gather is totally out of step with reality, __57__ of them can hardly express themselves in English or compose an email message properly, and __58__ handle even paper work in a law service with the legal knowledge they have. I __59__ some college teachers, whom I went to college with, that the amount of time an average college student spends on studies today is less than half of what we __60__ in the late 1970s when proper college education was recovered after the ―cultural revolution‖ (1966-76). ―They (the administrations) have enrolled so many students just to __61__ from their parents (tuition and other charges)‖, one of the teachers said embarrassedly. ―It's a nationwide phenomenon, you know.‖ It is hard to believe that a country should not __62__ education so seriously when there are no longer as many young people as before and view its opportunities only in terms of immediate financial gains, which greatly affects the quality of education. __63__, vocational education faces a double threat: frequent ups and downs in the business cycle and that of a flooding of cheap college certificates. It is __64__ in a country with rapid development in many fields to see little reform and progress in its education system. When colleges are reduced to money-making machines, they cannot help a society create enough workers, thinkers and leaders. 50. A. necessary 51. A. this B. key B. that C. new C. it D. remote D. as

52. A. economy 53. A. in the near future 54. A. and some 55. A. different 56. A. result 57. A. some 58. A. can 59. A. took from 60. A. spent 61. A. cost money 62. A. put 63. A. Although 64. A. common

B. country B. at present time B. but none B. same B. method B. most B. must B. picked out B. cost B. make money B. set B. Besides B. likely

C. city C. from time to time C. if any C. opposite C. reason C. few C. can’t C. caught sight of C. wasted C. create money C. make C. However C. worthwhile

D. industry D. in the long past D. because such D. similar D. expectation D. all D. mustn’t D. learned from D. detected D. deal with D. take D. Therefore D. surprising

Section B Directions: Read the following four 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) In our culture, the sources of what we call a sense of ―mastery‖ — feeling important and worthwhile — and the sources of what we call a sense of ―pleasure‖— finding life enjoyable — are not always the same. Women often are told ―You can’t have it all.‖ Sometimes what the speaker really is saying is: ―You choose a career, so you can’t expect to have closer relationships or a happy family life.‖ or ―You have a wonderful husband and children — what’s all this about wanting a career?‖ But women need to understand and develop both aspects of well-being, if they are to feel good about themselves. Our study shows that, for women, well-being has two aspects. One is mastery, which includes self-respect, a sense of control over your life, and low levels of anxiety and depression. Mastery is closely related to the ―doing‖ side of life, to work and activity. Pleasure is the other aspect, and it is made up of happiness, satisfaction and optimism. It is tied more closely to the ―feeling‖ side of life.

The two are independent of each other. A woman could be high in mastery and low in pleasure, and vice versa(反之亦然) For example, a woman who has a good job, but whose mother has just died, . might be feeling very good about herself and in control of her work life, but the pleasure side could be damaged for a time. The concepts of mastery and pleasure can help us identify the sources of well-being for women, and correct past mistakes. In the past, women were encouraged to look only at the feeling side of life as the source of all well-being. But we know that both mastery and pleasure are important. And mastery seems to be achieved largely through work. In our study, all the groups of employed women were valued significantly higher in mastery than women who were not employed. A woman’s well-being is developed when she takes on multiple roles. At least by middle adulthood, the women who were involved in a combination of roles — marriages, motherhood, and employment — were the highest in well-being, in spite of warnings about stress and strain. 65. It can be inferred from the first paragraph that ________. A. for women, a sense of ―mastery‖ is more important than a sense of ―pleasure‖ B. for women, a sense of ―pleasure‖ is more important than a sense of ―mastery‖ C. women can’t have a sense of ―mastery‖ and a sense of ―pleasure‖ at the same time D. a sense of ―mastery‖ and a sense of ―pleasure‖ are both necessary to women 66. The author’s attitude towards women having a career is________. A. negative B. positive C. indifferent D. realistic

67. One can conclude from the passage that if a woman takes on several social roles, ________. A. it will be easier for her to overcome stress and strain B. she will be more successful in her career C. her chances of getting promoted will be greater D. her life will be richer and more meaningful 68. Which of the following can be considered as a source of ―pleasure‖ for women? A. Family life C. Regular employment B. Multiple roles in society D. Freedom from anxiety


Welcome to the British Museum, the grandest and the most spectacular of human history. The admission is free and we open every day from 10:00 to 15:30. You can explore 10 departments including: The Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas The collection of the Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas includes around 350,000 objects. The scope of the collection is contemporary, and historical. It includes most of Africa, the Pacific and Australia, as well as the Americas. All of the collections were got during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and date from this time. The Department of Asia The Department of Asia covers the material and visual cultures of Asia – a vast geographical area of Japan, Korea, China, Central Asia, Afghanistan, South Asia and South-East Asia. The collection dates from about 4000 BC, to the present day. It represents the cultures and ways of life of local people and other minority groups. The Department of Greek and Roman Empires The Department of Greek and Roman Empires features antiquities (古董). It has one of the most comprehensive collections of antiquities from the Classical world, with over 100,000 objects. These mostly range in date from the beginning of the Greek Bronze Age (about 3200BC) to the time of the Roman emperor Constantine in the fourth century AD. 69. The scope of the Department of Africa, Oceania and Americas doesn’t include______. A. Africa B. Australia C. the South America D. Britain

70. The earliest collection is from ______. A. The Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas B. The Department of Asia C. The Department of Greek and Roman Empires D. All of the above 71. The Department of Asia represents ______. A. the geographic features of Asia B. the relationships between Asian countries C. the life styles and cultural traditions of some peoples

D. the cultural fights between some native groups

(C) It is one of the greatest mysteries of nature. In case you haven’t noticed, all living things follow very definite, individual rhythms, all as regular as a clock, but what makes them regular? Though many scientists maintain that these rhythms are the result of some outside force like gravity or radiation or both, the results of most scientific researches agree with other scientists who believe that each living thing has its own built-in biological ―time clock.‖ Take the mystery of migration for example. Scientists can’t really explain why many species of birds migrate in the autumn even though the temperature is still summery. The birds just seem to snub the comfortable weather that they are having. When a certain time comes, they travel south by the thousand. In spring time, they migrate northwards even though there probably is snow still covering the ground when they finally arrive. Something said ―go,‖ and they did. Animals that hibernate (冬眠) are obeying individual time clocks, too. When their clock indicates the time to take a winter’s nap, they do, and nothing can stop them. At a certain time in the spring, they wake up and come out regardless of the weather outside. Plants appear to have yearly rhythms, such as the sprouting of seeds, and they also have daily rhythms. Notice sometimes that plants raise their leaves in daylight and lower them at night. If you live along the California coast, you can easily observe a demonstration of this mysterious clock functioning regularly. There, from February to September, the highest tides occur exactly every fourteen and four-fifths days, and during these high tides, but at no other time, small silvery fish called grunions surf-ride a wave to the beach. There the female deposits her eggs in the sand and the male fertilizes them; then both hitch a wave-ride back to the sea. Exactly fourteen and four-fifths days later, never before or after, the tiny eggs hatch, and the high tide carries the new babies out to sea. 72. According to the passage, the mysterious rhythms result from ______. A. the influence of gravity on living species B. the effect of radiation on living species C. the influence of a mysterious outer force on living species

D. the internal mechanism inside the living species 73. The underlined word ―snub‖ in the third paragraph probably means ______. A. fight B. ignore C. symbolize D. criticize

74. Which of the following statements is NOT TRUE? A. Hibernating animals are obeying an internal time clock. B. The positioning of the leaves of some plants is due to the daily rhythms. C. The internal clock functioning is demonstrated in the reproducing habits of grunions. D. The yearly hibernation is more because of the weather influence than the biological functioning. 75. The passage is mainly about ______. A. the rhythms of life B. the reasons of mysterious hibernation C. strange behaviors of species D. the timing for different events in the world of species

Section C Directions: Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading from the list A-F for each paragraph. There is one extra heading which you do not need. (D) A. the future of computer-human relationship B. the programming system of the computer C. the reason of the complexity of the human brain D. the possibility of a real supercomputer E. the way for computers to kill humans F. the shortages of the computer compared with a human brain

76. ____________________ The difference between a human brain and a computer is more complicated than we can imagine. The large mammalian brain is the most complicated thing, for its size. Though the human brain only weighs three pounds, in that three pounds are ten billion neurons and a hundred billion cells. The many billions of cells are interconnected in such a vastly complicated network that we

can’t begin to explore as yet. 77. ____________________ Even the most complicated computer man has yet built can’t compare with the brain. Computer switches and processes number in the millions rather than in the billions. What’s more, the computer switch is just an on-off device, whereas the brain cell is itself possessed of a complex structure. 78. ____________________ It’s frequently said that computers solve problems only because they are ―programmed‖ to do so. They can only do what men have them do, in which way it is like the human brain. We can also do what we are ―programmed‖ to do. Our genes ―program‖ us the instant the zygote (授精卵) is formed, and our potentialities are limited by that ―program.‖ 79. ____________________ Surely, though, if a computer can be made complex enough, it can be as creative as people. If it could be made as complex as a human brain, it could be the replacement of a human brain and do whatever a human brain can do. Then the real supercomputer comes along. 80. ____________________ In other words, once we pass a certain critical point, the computers will gain a dominating position and present a complexity explosion. In a very short time thereafter, computers may exist not only taking after the human brain, but far passing it. When the time comes, we might as well step aside and hand over all our work to them and really have them serve us.

Section D Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. (E) Imagine a world in which there was suddenly no emotion—a world in which human beings could feel no love or happiness, no terror or hate. Try to imagine the consequences of such a transformation. People might not be able to stay alive: knowing neither joy nor pleasure, neither anxiety nor fear, they would be as likely to repeat acts that hurt them as acts that were beneficial.

They could not learn: they could not benefit from experience because this emotionless world would lack rewards and punishments. Society would soon disappear: people would be as likely to harm one another as to provide help and support. Human relationships would not exist: in a world without friends or enemies, there could be no marriage, affection among companions, or bonds among members of groups. Society’s economic functions would be destroyed: since earning $10 million would be no more pleasant than earning $10, there would be no motivation to work. In fact, there would be no motivation of any kind. For as we will see, motivation implies a capacity to enjoy certain activties. In such a world, the chances that the human species would survive are next to zero, because emotions are the basic instrument of our survival and adaptation. Emotions structure the world for us in important ways. As individuals, we categorize objects on the basis of our emotions. True we consider the length, shape, size, or texture, but an object’s physical aspects are less important than what it has done or can do to us—hurt us, surprise us, anger us or make us joyful. We also use categorizations colored by emotions in our families, communities, and overall society. Out of our emotional experiences with objects and events comes a social feeling of agreement that certain things and actions are ―good‖ and others are ―bad‖, and we apply these categories to every aspect of our social life—from what foods we eat and what clothes we wear to how we keep promises and which people our group will accept. In fact, society exploits our emotional reactions and attitudes, such as loyalty, morality, pride, shame, guilt, fear and greed, in order to maintain itself. It gives high rewards to individuals when performing important tasks. 81. According to the passage, the concept of right or wrong comes from ____________. 82. Emotions are significant for man’s survival because ____________. 83. What would an emotionless world lack? 84. What is the result of the absence of emotion?

Section B Directions: In Section B, you will hear two short passages, and you will be asked three questions on each of the passages. The passages will be read twice but the questions will be spoken only once. When you hear a question, read the four possible answers in your paper and decide which one would be the best answer to the question you have heard. Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage. Bill Gates is a very important person in the computer industry. He has been chief officer of Microsoft Corporation for several years. He is also the richest person in the United States. How did he do it? He learned a lot from his parents. While Bill was going to school, his father went to college, got a degree, and became a successful lawyer. From this, Bill learned that you have to work hard if you want something. His mother was a very busy teacher, but she also enjoyed going to parties.

From this, he learned something else: if you want to work hard and play hard, you have to make a schedule. When Bill was young, he spent a lot of time alone. While most of his friends were playing, Bill read all of the World Book Encyclopedia and finished it when he was 8 years old. Bill’s childhood was not all work, however. He used to play a lot of sports – swimming, water-skiing, tennis. He was very serious about sports. He loved winning and he hated losing. When Bill got older, he spent more and more time working and playing on a computer. Before he was 20, Bill developed the world’s first computer language for the personal computer. He said, ―I’m going to make my first million dollars on software by the time I’m 25.‖ And he did it!

Questions: 11. What was Bill’s father? 12. What did Bill learn from his mother? 13. What’s the best topic in this passage? Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. Time for news. CHINA has expressed concern about Washington’s decision to shoot down a damaged satellite. China urged the US government to fulfill its international obligation to preserve the security of space and other countries. Russia has suggested the shoot down attempt could be cover for a test of the US new missile defense system. The US Defense Department is planning to shoot down a damaged spy satellite that is expected to hit the Earth in early March. The satellite has been out of control since shortly after its launch in 2006. US—US physicists have made a clock so accurate that it will neither gain or lose a second in over 200 million years. The clock outperforms the official atomic clock used by the US Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology. It promises to keep accurate time down to the second for 80 million years. China –THE government will spend about 9 billion yuan in helping people in snowhit areas get through their current difficulties and begin rebuilding. As of last week, the worst winter weather for

half a century had killed at least 107 people and caused a direct economic loss estimated at 111 billion yuan.

Questions: 14. What is China concerned about? 15. What have American physicists invented recently? 16. How much will be spent in helping people in snow-hit areas in China?

Section C Directions: In Section C, you will hear two longer conversations. The conversations will be read twice. After you hear each conversation, you are required to fill in the numbered blanks with the information you have heard. Write your answers on your answer sheet. Blanks 17 through 20 are based on the following conversation. M: Hello, University Books, David Tailor speaking. W: Hi, David, this is Mary. M: Oh, hi, Mary. What’s up? W: Well, the Student’s Union needs a couple of volunteers to show the overseas students around next week. Would you be able to help out? M: That depends on the days you had in mind. I’m working here fulltime before classes begin. It’s really busy now, with all the textbook orders coming in, but I do have some time off. W: What about Saturday? Most new students arrived on the weekend. M: Sorry, I have to work all day Saturday. How about Thursday and Friday? I’ve got both morning free. W: I think Friday morning will be fine. M: I’ll only be able to spare a couple of hours, though. W: No problem. I’ll ask Ken to get in touch with you later today. Will you be at this number, that is 65884029? M: Yeah, till four o’clock. By the way, where do most students come from? You know, my French is rather poor.

W: Oh, they all come from Germany. You’re good at it, aren’t you? M: Eh. Thank you. Look, I’ve got to now. W: OK, see you. (Now listen to it again, please.) Blanks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation. M: Welcome to Hong Kong, Kelly. We’re always glad to see you here. W: Thanks. I always enjoy my visits here very much. M: Last time you came, you were only here for 24 hours. Are you staying longer this time? W: Yes, I’m staying a lot longer than last time. Two weeks, in fact, I leave on 19th for Sydney. M: And you’re here to buy some clothes, aren’t you? W: Yes. Hong Kong is the most exciting place in the world for clothes, so after my concert, I’m planning to do a lot of shopping. And now I have all my stage clothes made here, you know, I have a designer here, and she makes all the outfits for my concert, so I have to visit here regularly. M: What changes have you noticed in Hong Kong on this visit? W: Well, the biggest difference is in the weather! It’s not so hot as last time I come. That was in August. M: The worst time of the year! Were you pleased with the sales of your last CD? W: No, not really. Even if I thought it was a really good one, it sold worse than I had expected. I’m hoping the next one will sell better. M: Kelly, a lot of teenagers see you as a kind of role model. Does this ever worry you? W: Yes, sometimes. It’s a big responsibility. These days I feel I should be more careful about the things I say and do. I don’t want to be a bad example. M: I’m sure you’re not, Kelly. Thanks for talking to me.

(Now listen to it again, please.)
