Part IV Reading Comprehension

Directions: Read the following passages carefully and choose the best answer from the four choices marked A, B, C and D.

Questions 76 to 80 are based on the following passage.

Earthquakes (地震) can be really terrible. The San Francisco earthquake of 1906 caused over $200-million worth of damage, destroyed almost 30,000 buildings, and killed about 450 persons. In Japan, the cities of Tokyo and Yokohama were leveled by the earthquakes of 1923 in which more than 140,000 persons were killed by falling buildings and fires, and over a million persons

were left homeless―all in 30 seconds.

Hundreds of earthquakes occur every year throughout the world. Fortunately, few are as destructive as those described above. The development of an accurate system for predicting earthquakes would reduce the loss of life and property. But at present scientists can only study the phenomenon.

The study of earthquakes is called seismology. Seismographs (地震仪) are instruments sensitive to ground movement, and are used to record each motion. The Richter Scale is used to grade each earthquake’s strength on a 1-to-10 scale.

76. What is seismology?

A. Study of the humankind.

B. Study of the earth’s surface.

C. Study of the earth’s history.

D. Study of earthquakes.

78. About how many earthquakes occur every year?

A. Several hundred.

B. Around a few dozen.

C. Several thousand.

D. About one hundred.

79. How often do earthquakes occur that are as destructive as those described in Paragraph 1?

A. Quite often.

B. Once in a while.

C. Yearly.

D. Never.

80. How can people suffer less from earthquakes?

Questions 81 to 85 are based on the following passage.

Oxford University once claimed to have been founded by Alfred the Great in the 9th Century, but in fact, it began to take shape in the 12th Century when English scholars were forced to leave from Paris University and began to gather at Oxford’s Abbeys (修道院) and Priories (寺院), which were by then already established centers of learning.

Today, 39 independent colleges are related to the University in a type of federal system. Each is governed by a Head of House and a number of Fellows, who are scholars specializing in a wide variety of subjects, most of whom also hold University posts.

Across both the Arts and the Sciences, Oxford research consistently ranks top both nationally and internationally. As well as being in the front of scientific, medical, and technological achievement, the University has strong links with research organizations and industrial concerns both in the UK and overseas. Its income from offers for research in 1996 totaled over £107 million. The University’s great age also allows its teaching staff and research students to draw on a tradition of great library and museum collections.

Students working for higher degrees are an important and valued part. They currently make up over a quarter of the total student body of 15,641, drawn by the excellent facilities for research which the University can offer, therefore the number of graduate students is increasing.

In all these fields, Oxford attracts scholars from many parts of the world to join its teaching and research staff, and also values the important role of overseas graduate students in providing intellectual drive and creating and keeping links with colleges abroad.

To get into the University, students must first win a place by competitive examination at one of the colleges, which have their own policies. And the process of acceptance by both the professor and college can take some time; early application is therefore strongly advised.

81. In truth Oxford University was developed by _________________.

A. Alfred the Great in the 9th century

Questions 86 to 90 are based on the following passage.

Dramatic changes in higher education are giving more people than ever the chance of studying for a degree. But they may find many difficulties when it comes to new graduates’ job prospects (前景).

According to a report from the Institute of Manpower Studies (人力研究所), the output of graduates in Britain has almost doubled in the past five years and seems set to rise by a further 57 per cent by 2005. At the same time, economic recession (萧条) has cut the number of graduate

jobs such that one in seven (14 per cent) of 2002 university graduates in England, Scotland and Wales failed to find work within six months of graduating. So is it surprising that many graduates have turned to post-graduate studies as an escape route? In the 10 years to 2001, the number of students on master’s courses grew by 97 per cent. But while such courses in mathematics and computer sciences rose by 149 per cent, science courses increased by only 31 per cent.

The growth in the number of science students has not been evenly spread out, and in some subjects numbers are actually falling. “What is disturbing,” says Richard Pearson, the director of the Institute of Manpower Studies, “is that the output of physics graduates will go down by 6 per cent and mathematicians by 4 per cent by 1995.” Students are now more attracted to business studies and combined non-technical degree courses than to single honors degrees in science and technology. The day when there are no physics teachers to be found may yet return.

86. What’s the main focus of the above passage?

A. There are more chances for students to get degrees.

B. The students’ job future remains bleak.

C. Many students turn to postgraduate studies.

D. More graduates meet with less job offers.

87. According to the passage, which of the following statements is NOT true?

A. Graduates in Britain have almost doubled in the past five years and will rise to 57 per cent by 2005.

B. One out of seven graduates from universities in England, Scotland and Wales was jobless within six months after graduation.

C. From 1991 to 2001, the number of students on master’s degree courses rose by 97 per cent.

D. Mathematics and computer courses grew by 149 per cent and science courses by only 31 per cent.

88. What concerned Richard Pearson, the director of the Institute of Manpower Studies?

A. He’s worried about the lack of combined non-technical degree courses.

B. He’s worried about the job prospects of science students.

C. He’s concerned about the uneven spread of science student s.

D. He’s concerned about the drop in the number of technical courses.

89. What’s the overall tendency when it comes to course preference among students?

A. They tend to choose business courses.

B. They prefer mathematics to physics.

C. They are more attracted to science courses.

D. They prefer courses with better job prospects.

90. What’s the possible solution of the problem in question?

A. Increase students’ social responsibilities.

B. Assist students in their career choices.

C. Develop their interest in physics teaching.

D. Encourage their passion for science research.

Part IV Reading Comprehension

Directions: Read the following passages carefully and choose the best answer from the four choices marked A, B, C and D.

Questions 71 to 75 are based on the following passage.

In ancient times the most important examinations were spoken, not written. In the schools of ancient Greece and Rome, testing usually consisted of saying poetry aloud or giving speeches.

In the European universities of the Middle Ages, students who were working for advanced degrees had to discuss questions in their field of study with people who had made a special study of the subject. This custom exists today as part of the process of t esting candidates for the doctor’s degree.

Generally, however, modern examinations are written. The written examination, where all

students are tested on the same question, was probably not known until the nineteenth century. Perhaps it came into existence with the great increase in population and the development of modern industry. A room full of candidates for a state examination, timed exactly by electric clocks and carefully watched over by managers, resembles a group of workers at an automobile factory. Generally, during examinations teachers and students are expected to act like machines.

One type of test is sometimes called an “objective” test. It is intended to deal with facts, not personal opinions. To make up an objective test the teacher writes a series of questions, each of which has only one correct answer. Along with each question the teacher writes the correct answer and also three statements that look like correct answers to students who have not learned the material properly.

71. In the Middle Ages students ______.

A. took objective tests

B. specialized in one subject

C. were timed by electric clocks

D. never wrote exams

A. before the Middle Ages

B. around the 19th century

C. has changed since the Middle Ages

D. is given only in factories

Questions 76 to 80 are based on the following passage.

The market investigation is indispensable to sales promotion. They are as closely related as the lips and teeth, so to speak. What you produce is for sale on the market. It would be impossible to succeed in selling a product without first investigating the market.

In the international market, goods on sale coming from different countries and suppliers are always facing keen competition. Under such circumstances, they will try everything possible to familiarize themselves with the market conditions. In making investigations, we ought to get information about what similar items the competitors are offering on the market, what prices they are quoting(报价), what features their products have, who are their regular customers, etc. Then, how can we obtain such information? There are many channels that we can make use of in doing this sort of work. The commercial counselor’s offices of our embassies stationed abroad can help us in making market investigations. Nowadays, our import and export corporations send their trade groups abroad every now and then. One of their purposes is to make market surveys on the


Certainly, face-to-face talks with foreign businessmen are also important channels to get market information.

Questions 81 to 85 are based on the following passage.

When we talk about intelligence, we do not mean the ability to get good scores on certain kinds of tests or even the ability to do well in school. By intelligence we mean a way of living and behaving, especially in a new or upsetting situation. If we want to test intelligence, we need to find out how a person acts instead of how much he knows what to do.

For instance, when in a new situation, an intelligent person thinks about the situation, not about himself or what might happen to him. He tries to find out all he can, and then he acts immediately and tries to do something about it. He probably isn’t sure how it will all work out, but at least he t ries. And, if he can’t make things work out right, he doesn’t feel ashamed that he failed; he just tries to learn from his mistakes. An intelligent person, even if he is very young, has a special outlook on life, a special feeling about life, and knows how he fits into it.

If you look at children, you’ll see great difference between what we call “bright” children and “not-bright” children. They are actually two different kinds of people, not just the same kind with different amount of intelligence. For example, the bright child really wants to find out about life -- he tries to get in touch with everything around him. But, the unintelligent child keeps more to himself and his own dream-world; he seems to have a wall between him and life in general.

D. cares more about himself

83. If an intelligent person failed, he would ____.

A. try not to feel ashamed

B. learn from his experiences

C. try to find all he could

D. make sure what result he would get

84. Bright children and not-bright children ____.

A. are two different types of children

B. are different mainly in their degree of cleverness

C. have difference only in their way of thinking

D. have different knowledge about the world

85. The author of this passage will probably continue to talk about ____.

A. how to determine what intelligence is

B. how education should be conducted

C. how to solve practical problems

D. how an unintelligent person should be taught

Questions 86 to 90 are based on the following passage.

To paraphrase 18th-century statesman Edmund Burke, “all that is needed for the triumph of a misguided cause is that good people do nothing.” One such cause now seeks to end biomedical research because of the theory that animals have rights ruling out their use in research. Scientists need to respond forcefully to animal rights advocates, whose arguments are confusing the public and thereby threatening advances in health knowledge and care. Leaders of the animal rights movement target biomedical research because it depends on public funding, and few people understand the process of health care research. Hearing allegations of cruelty to animals in research settings, many are perplexed that anyone would deliberately harm an animal.

For example, a grandmotherly woman staffing an animal rights booth at a recent street fair was distributing a brochure that encouraged readers not to use anything that opposed immunizations, she wanted to know if vaccines come from animal research. When assured that they do, she replied, “Then 1 would have to say yes.” Asked what will happen when epidemics

return, she said, “Don’t worry, scientists will find some way of using computers.” Such well-meaning people just don’t understand.

Scientists must communicate their message to the public in a compassionate, understandable wayin human terms, not in the language of molecular biology. We need to make clear the connection between animal research and a grandmother’s hip replacement, a fa ther’s bypass operation, a baby’s vaccinations, and even a pet’s shots. To those who are unaware that animal research was needed to produce these treatments, as well as new treatments and vaccines, animal research seems wasteful at best and cruel at worst.

Much can be done. Scientists could “adopt”middle school classes and present their own research. They should be quick to respond to letters to the editor, lest animal rights misinformation go unchallenged and acquire a deceptive appearance of truth. Research institutions could be opened to tours, to show that laboratory animals receive humane care.

Finally, because the ultimate stakeholders are patients, the health research community should actively recruit to its cause not only well-known personalities such as Stephen Cooper, who has made courageous statements about the value of animal research, but all who receive medical treatment. If good people do nothing there is a real possibility that an uninformed citizenry will extinguish the precious embers of medical progress.

86. The author begins his article with Edmund Burke’s words to_________.

A. call on scientists to take some actions

B. criticize the misguided cause of animal rights

C. warn of the doom of biomedical research

D. show the triumph of the animal rights movement
