TEXT A

In the case of mobile phones, change is everything. Recent research indicates that the mobile phone is changing not only our culture, but our very bodies as well. First. Let’s talk about culture. The difference between the mobile phone and its parent, the fixed-line phone, you get whoever answers it. This has several implications. The most common one, however, and perhaps the thing that has changed our culture forever, is the “meeting” influence. People no longer need to make firm plans about when and where to meet. Twenty years ago, a Friday night would need to be arranged in advance. You needed enough time to allow everyone to get from their place of work to the first meeting place. Now, however, a night out can be arranged on the run. It is no longer “see you there at 8”, but “text me around 8 and we’ll see where we all are”. Texting changes people as well. In their paper, “insights into the Social and Psychological Effects of SMS Text Messaging”, two British researchers distinguished between two types of mobile phone users: the “talkers” and the “texters”-those who prefer voice to text message and those who prefer text to voice. They found that the mobile phone’s individuality and privacy gave texters the ability to express a whole new outer personality. Texters were likely to report that their family would be surprised if they were to read their texts. This suggests that texting allowed texters to present a self-image that differed from the one familiar to those who knew them well. Another scientist wrote of the changes that mobiles have brought to body language. There are two kinds that people use while speaking on the phone. There is the “speakeasy”: the head is held high, in a self-confident way, chatting away. And there is the “spacemaker”: these people focus on themselves and keep out other people. Who can blame them? Phone meetings get cancelled or reformed and camera-phones intrude on people’s privacy. So, it is understandable if your mobile makes you nervous. But perhaps you needn’t worry so much. After all, it is good to talk. 1 when people plan to meet nowadays, they A: arrange the meeting place beforehand B. postpone fixing the place till last minute C: seldom care about when and where to meet D: still love to work out detailed meeting plans. 2 According to the two British researchers, the social and psychological effect are mostly likely to be seen on A: TALKERS B; the "speakeasy" c. the “spacemaker” D. texters 3 We can infer from the passage that the texts sent by texters are A: quite revealing B: well written c: unacceptable by others d; shocking to others 4 according to the passage ,who is afraid of being heard while talking on the mobile a: talkers b: the speakeasy c :the spacemaker d: texters 5 an appropriate title for the passage might be A: the SMS effect b: cultural implication of mobile use c: change in the use of the mobile d: body language and the mobile phone!

TEXT B

Over the last 25 years, British society has changed a great deal-or at least many parts of it have. In some ways, however, very little has changed, particularly where attitudes are concerned. Ideas about social class-whether a person is “working-class” or “middle-class” -are one area in which changes have been extremely slow. In the past, the working-class tended to be paid less than middle-class people, such as teachers and doctors. As a result of this and also of the fact that workers’ jobs were generally much less secure, distinct differences in life-styles and attitudes came into existence. The typical working man would collect his wages on Friday evening and then, it was widely believed, having given his wife her “housekeeping”, would go out and squander the rest on beer and betting. The stereotype of what a middle-class man did with his money was perhaps nearer the truth. He was-and still is – inclined to take a longer-term view. Not only did he regard buying a house of these provided him and his family with security. Only in very few cases did workers have the opportunity (or the education and training) to make such long-term plans. Nowadays, a great deal has changed. In a large number of cases factory workers earn as much, if not more, than their middle-class supervisors. Social security and laws to improve century, have made it less necessary than before to worry about “tomorrow”. Working-class people seem slowly to be losing the feeling of inferiority they had in the past. In fact there has been a growing tendency in the past few years for the middle-classes to feel slightly ashamed of their position. The changes in both life-styles and attitudes are probably most easily seen amongst younger people. They generally tend to share very similar tastes in music and clothes, they spend their money in having a good time, and save for holidays or longer-term plans when necessary. There seems to be much less difference than in precious generations. Nevertheless, we still have a wide gap between the well-paid (whatever the type of job they may have) and the low-paid. As long as this gap exists, there will always be a possibility that new conflicts and jealousies will emerge, or rather that the old conflicts will re-appear, but between different groups. 6, which of the following is seen as the cause of class differences in the past? A: life style and occupation B: Attitude and income C: income and job security D: job security and hobbies 7 the writer seems to suggest that the description of ------- is closer to truth? A: middle –class ways of spending money B: working-class ways of spending the weekend C: working-class drinking habits D: middle-class attitudes 8 according to the passage, which of the following is not a typical feature of the middle -class? A: desiring for security B: Making long term plans C: having priorities in life D: saving money 9 working -class people's sense of security increased as a resulf of all the follwoing factor except? A:better social security B: more job opportunities C: higher living standard D: better legal protection. 10. which of the following statement is incorrect? A:Changes are slowly taking place in all sectors of the British society. B:The gap between working -class and middle- class young people is narrowing C: different in income will remain but those in occupation will disappear D: middle-class people may sometimes feel inferior to working-class people!

TEXT C

For several days I saw little of Mr. Rochester. In the morning he seemed much occupied with business, and in the afternoon gentlemen from the neighourhood called and some times stayed to dine with him. When his foot was well enough, he rode out a great deal. During this time, all my knowledge of him was limited to occasional meetings about the house, when he would sometimes pass me coldly, and sometimes bow and smile. His changes of manner did not offend me, because I saw that I had nothing to do with the cause of them. One evening, several days later, I was invited to talk to Mr. Rochester after dinner. He was sitting in his armchair, and looked not quite so severe, and much less gloomy. There was a smile on his lips, and his eyes were bright, probably with wine. As I was looking at him, he suddenly turned, and asked me, “do you think I’m handsome, Miss Eyre?” The answer somehow slipped from my tongue before I realized it: ‘No, sir.” “ah, you really are unusual! You are a quiet, serious little person, but you can be almost rude.” “Sir, I’m sorry. I should have said that beauty doesn’t matter, or something like that,” “no, you shouldn’t! I see, you criticize my appearance, and then you stab me in the back! You have honesty and feeling. There are not many girls like you. But perhaps I go too fast. Perhaps you have awaful faults to counterbalance your few good points I thought to myself that he might have too. He seemed to read my mind, and said quickly,” yes, you’re right. I have plenty of faults. I went the wrong way when I was twenty-one, and have never found the right path again. I might have been very different. I might have been as good as you, and perhaps wiser. I am not a bad man, take my word for it, but I have done wrong. It wasn’t my character, but circumstances which were to blame. Why do I tell you all this? Because you’re the sort of person people tell their problems and secrets to, because you’re sympathetic and give them hope.” It seemed he had quite a lot to talk to me. He didn’t seem to like to finish the talk quickly, as was the case for the first time. “Don’t be afraid of me, Miss Eyre.” He continued. “ you don’t relax or laugh very much, perhaps because of the effect Lowood school has had on you. But in time you will be more natural with me, and laugh, and speak freely. You’re like a bird in a cage. When you get out of the cage, you’ll fly very high. Good night.” 11:at the beginning miss Eyre 's impressions of Mr.Rochester were all except A: busy B:sociable C: friendly D: changeable 12, in "....and all my knowledge him was limited to occasional meetings about the house,…”.the word about means A:around B:on C:outside D:concerning. 13. why did Mr.Rochester say" ..and the you stab me in the back!" the (7thpara. A: because Jane had intended to kill him with a knife B: because Jane had intended to be more critical. C: because Jane had regretted having talked to him D:because Jane had said something else to correct herself. 14, from what Mr.Rochest told miss Eyre,we can conclude that he wanted to A: Tell her all his troubles B: tell her his life experience. C:change her opinion of him D change his circumstances 15, at the end of the passage , Mr. Rochester sounded A:rude B: cold C: friendly D: encouraging.

TEXTD The ideal companion machine-the computer- would not only look, feel, and sound friendly but would also be programmed to behave in a pleasant manner. Those qualities that make interaction comfortable, and yet the machine would remain slightly unpredictable and therefore interesting. In its first encounter it might be somewhat hesitant, but as it came to know the user it would progress to a more relaxed and intimate style. The machine would not be a passive participant but would add its own suggestions, information, and opinions; it would sometimes take the initiative in developing or changing the topic and would have a personality of its own. Friendships are not made in a day, and the computer would be more acceptable as a friend if it imitated the gradual changes that occur when one person is getting to know another. At an appropriate time it might also express the kind of affection that stimulates attachment and intimacy. The whole process would be accomplished in a subtle way to avoid giving an impression of over-familiarity that would be likely to produce irritation. After experiencing a wealth of powerful, well-timed friendship indicators, the user would be very likely to accept the computer as far more than a machine and might well come to regard it as a friend. An artificial relationship of this type would provide many of the benefits that could continue from previous discussions. It would have a familiarity with the user’s life as revealed in earlier contact, and it would be understanding and good-humored. The computer’s own personality would be lively and impressive, and it would develop in response to that of the user. With features such as these, the machine might indeed become a very attractive social partner. 16.which of the following is not a feature of the ideal companion machine? A:Active in communication B: Attractive in personality. C: enjoyable in performance D: unpredictable in behaviour 17. the computer would develop friendships with humans in a (n) ---------way. A: Quick B: unpredictable C: productive D: inconspicuous. 18.which of the following aspects is not mentioned when the passage discusses the benefits of artificial relationships? A:Being able to pick up an interesting conversation. B: Being sensitive to earlier contact. C: Being ready to learn about the person's life D:Having a pleasant and adaptable personality. 19 throughout the passage, the author is _____in his attitude toward the computer A:favourable B:critical C: vague D: hesitant 20. which might be the most appropriate title of the passage? A:Articial relationshios . B: How to form intimate relationships C:The affectionate machine D: Humans and computers

TEXT E

Surprisingly, no one knows how many children receive education in English hospitals, still less the content or quality of that education. Proper records are jus t not kept. We know that more than 850.000 children go through hospital each year, and that every child of school age has a legal right to continue to receive education while in hospital. We also know there is only one hospital teacher to every 1,000 children in hospital. Little wonder the latest survey concludes that the extent and type of hospital teaching available differ a great deal across the country. It is found that half the hospitals in England which admit children have no teacher. A further quarter have only a part-time teacher. The special children’s hospitals in major cities do best; general hospitals in the country and holiday areas are worst off. From this survey, one can estimate that fewer than one in five children have some contact with a hospital teacher—and that contact may be as little as two hour s a day. Most children interviewed were surprised to find a teacher in hospital at all. They had not been prepared for it by parents or their own school. If the re was a teacher they were much more likely to read books and do math or number work; without a teacher they would only play games. Reasons for hospital teaching range from preventing a child falling behind and maintaining the habit of school to keeping a child occupied, and the latter is of ten all the teacher can do. The position and influence of many teachers was summed up when parents referred to them as “the library lady” or just “the helper”. Children tend to rely on concerned school friends to keep in touch with school w ork. Several parents spoke of requests for work being ignored or refused by the school. Once back at school children rarely get extra teaching, and are told to catch up as best they can. Many short-stay child-patients catch up quickly. But schools do very little to ease the anxiety about falling behind expressed by many of the children interview ed. 21. The author points out at the beginning that___. A. every child in hospital receives some teaching B. not enough is known about hospital teaching C. hospital teaching is of poor quality D. the special children’s hospitals are worst off  22. It can be inferred from the latest survey that___. A. hospital teaching across the country is similar B. each hospital has at least one part-time teacher C. all hospitals surveyed offer education to children D.only one-fourth of the hospitals have full-time teachers  23. Children in hospital usual1y turn to__in order to catch up with their school work. A. hospital teachers B. schoolmates C. parents D. school teachers 24. We can conclude from the passage that the author is___. A. unfavourable towards children receiving education in hospitals B. in favour of the present state of teaching in hospitals C. unsatisfied with the present state of hospital teaching D. satisfied with the results of the latest survey 

TEXT F

Computer people talk a lot about the need for other people to become “computer-l iterate”, in other words, to learn to understand computers and what makes them tick. Not all experts agree, however, that is a good idea. One pioneer, in particular. who disagrees is David Tebbutt, the founder of Computer town UK. Although many people see this as a successful attempt to bring people closer to the computer, David does not see it that way. He says that Computer town UK was formed for just the opposite reason, to bring computers to the people and make them “people-literate”. David first got the idea when he visited one of America’s best-known computer “guru” figure, Bob Albrecht,in the small university town of Palo Alto in Northern California. Albrecht had started a project called Computer town USA in the local library, and the local children used to call round every Wednesday to borrow so me time on the computers there, instead of borrowing library books. Albrecht was always on hand to answer any questions and to help the children discover about computers in their own way. Over here, in Britain,Computer towns have taken off in a big way,and there are now about 40 scattered over the country. David Tebbutt thinks they are most successful when tied to a computer club. He insists there is a vast and important difference between the two, although they complement each other. The clubs cater f or the enthusiasts, with some computer knowledge already, who get together arid eventually form an expert computer group. This frightens away non-experts, who a re happier going to Computer towns where there are computers available for them t o experiment on, with experts available to encourage them and answer any questions; they are not told what to do, they find out. David Tehbutt finds it interesting to see the two different approaches working side by side. The computer experts have to learn not to tell people about computers, but have to be able to explain the answers to the questions that people real ly want to know. In some Computer towns there are question sessions, rather like radio phone-ins, where the experts listen to a lot of questions and then try to work out some structure to answer them. People are not having to learn computer jargons, but the experts are having to translate computer mysteries into easily understood terms; the computers are becoming “people-literate”.

25. According to David Tebbutt, the purpose of Computer town UK is to___ A. train people to understand how computers work B. make more computers available to people C. enable more people to fix computers themselves D. help people find out more about computers  26. We Learn from the passage that Computer town USA was a ___. A. town B. project C. library D. school  27. Which of the following statements is INCORRECT? A. Computertowns in the UK have become popular. B. Computertowns and clubs cater for different people. C. Computertowns are more successful than clubs. D. It’s better that computertowns and clubs work together.  28. Which of the following is NOT an advantage of computer towns? A. Experts give lectures and talks on computers. B. Experts are on hand to answer people’s questions. C. People are left to discover computers on their own. D. There are computers around for people to practise on. 

TEXT G

There must be few questions on which responsible opinion is so utterly divided a s on that of how much sleep we ought to have. There are some who think we can leave the body to regulate these matters for itself. “The answer is easy,” says Dr . A. Burton. “With the right amount of sleep you should wake up fresh and alert five minutes before the alarm rings.” If he is right many people must be under sleeping, including myself. But we must remember that some people have a greater inertia than others. This is not meant rudely. They switch on slowly, and they a re reluctant to switch off. They are alert at bedtime and sleepy when it is time to get up, and this may have nothing to do with how fatigued their bodies are, or how much sleep they must take to lose their fatigue. Other people feel sure that the present trend is towards too little sleep. To quote one medical opinion, thousands of people drift through life suffering from the effects of too little sleep; the reason is not that they can’t sleep. Like advancing colonists, we do seem to be grasping ever more of the land of sleep for our waking needs, pushing the boundary back and reaching, apparently, for a poi nt in our evolution where we will sleep no more. This in itself, of course, need not be a bad thing. What could be disastrous, however, is that we should press too quickly towards this goal, sacrificing sleep only to gain more time in which to jeopardize our civilization by actions and decisions made weak by fatigue. Then, to complete the picture, there are those who believe that most people are persuaded to sleep too much. Dr H. Roberts, writing in Every Man in Health, asse ts: “It may safely be stated that, just as the majority eat too much, so the majority sleep too much.” One can see the point of this also. It would be a pity t o retard our development by holding back those people who are gifted enough to work and play well with less than the average amount of sleep, if indeed it does them no harm. If one of the trends of evolution is that more of the life span is to be spent in gainful waking activity, then surely these people are in the van of this advance.

29. The author seems to indicate that___. A. there are many controversial issues like the right amount of sleep B. among many issues the right amount of sleep is the least controversial C. people are now moving towards solving many controversial issues D. the right amount of sleep is a topic of much controversy among doctors 30. The author disagrees with Dr. Burton because___. A. few people can wake up feeling fresh and alert B. some people still feel tired with enough sleep C. some people still feel sleepy with enough sleep D. some people go to bed very late at night  31. In the last paragraph the author points out that___. A. sleeping less is good for human development B. people ought to be persuaded to sleep less than before C. it is incorrect to say that people sleep too little D. those who can sleep less should be encouraged  32. We learn from the passage that the author___. A. comments on three different opinions B. favours one of the three opinions C. explains an opinion of his own D. revises someone else’s opinion 

TEXT H

Migration is usually defined as “permanent or semipermanent change of residence. ” This broad definition, of course, would include a move across the street or across a city. Our concern is with movement between nations, not with internal migration within nations, although such movements often exceed international movements in volume. Today, the motives of people who move short distances are very similar to those of international migrants. Students of human migration speak of “push” and “pull” factors, which influence an individual’s decision to move from one place to another. Push factors are associated with the place of origin. A push factor can be as simple and mild a matter as difficulty in finding a suitable job. or as traumatic as war, or severe famine. Obviously, refugees who leave their homes with guns pointed at their heads are motivated almost entirely by push factors (although pull factors do influence their choice of destination). Pull factors are those associated with the place of destination. Most often these are economic,such as better job opportunities or the availability of good land to farm. The latter was an important factor in attracting settlers to the Unit ed States during the 19th century. In general, pull factors add up to an apparently better chance for a good life and material well-being than is offered by the place of origin. When there is a choice between several attractive potential destinations, the deciding factor might be a non-economic consideration such as the presence of relatives, friends, or at least fellow countrymen already established in the new place who are willing to help the newcomers settle in. Considerations of this sort cad to the development of migration flow. Besides push and pull actors, there are what the sociologists call “intervening obstacles” Even if push and(or) pull factors are very strong they still may be outweighed by intervening obstacles, such as the distance of the move, the trouble and cost of moving, the difficulty of entering the new country, and the problem s likely to be encountered on arrival. The decision to move is also influenced by “personal factors” of the potential migrant. The same push-pull factors and obstacles operate differently on different people, sometimes because they are at different stages of their lives, or just because of their varying abilities and personalities. The prospect of packing u p everything and moving to a new and perhaps very strange environment may appear interesting and challenging to an unmarried young man and appallingly difficult to a slightly older man with a wife and small kids. Similarly, the need to learn a new language and customs may excite one person and frighten another. Regardless of why people move, migration of large numbers of people causes conflict. The United States and other western countries have experienced adjustment problems with each new wave of immigrants. The newest arrivals are usually given the lowest-paid jobs and are resented by native people who may have to compete w ith them for those jobs. It has usually taken several decades for each group to be accepted into the mainstream of society in the host country.

33. The author thinks that pull factors___. A. are all related to economic considerations B. are not as decisive as push factors C. include a range of considerations D. are more important than push factors  34. People’s decisions to migrate might be influenced by all the following EXC EPT___. A. personalities. B. education. C. marital status. D. abilities.  35. The purpose of the passage is to discuss___. A. the problems of international migrants B. the motives of international migrants C. migration inside the country D. migration between countries

TEXT I

William Sydney Porter (1862-1910), who wrote under the pseudonym of O. Henry, was born in North Carolina. His only formal education was to attend his Aunt Lina’s school until the age of fifteen, where he developed his lifelong love of books. By 1881 he was a licensed pharmacist. However, within a year, on the recommendation of a medical colleague of his Father’s, Porter moved to La Salle County in Texas for two years herding sheep. During this time, Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary was his constant companion, and Porter gained a knowledge of ranch life that he later incorporated into many of his short stories. He then moved to Austin for three years, and during this time the first recorded use of his pseudonym appeared, allegedly derived from his habit of calling “Oh, Henry” to a family cat. In 1887, Porter married Athol Estes. He worked as a draftsman, then as a bank teller for the First National Bank. In 1894 Porter founded his own humor weekly, the “Rolling Stone”, a venture that failed within a year, and later wrote a column for the Houston Daily Post. In the meantime, the First National Bank was examined, and the subsequent indictment of 1886 stated that Porter had embezzled funds. Porter then fled to New Orleans, and later to Honduras, leaving his wife and child in Austin. He returned in 1897 because of his wife’s continued ill-health, however she died six months later. Then, in 1898 Porter was found guilty and sentenced to five years imprisonment in Ohio. At the age of thirty five, he entered prison as a defeated man; he had lost his job, his home, his wife, and finally his freedom. He emerged from prison three years later, reborn as O. Henry, the pseudonym he now used to hide his true identity. He wrote at least twelve stories in jail, and after re-gaining his freedom, went to New York City, where he published more than 300 stories and gained fame as America’s favorite short Story writer. Porter married again in 1907, but after months of poor health, he died in New York City at the age of forty-eight in 1910. O. Henry’s stories have been translated all over the world.

36.Why did the author write the passage? A. because it is a tragic story of a gifted writer B. to outline the career of a famous American C. because of his fame as America’s favorite short story writer D. to outline the influences on O. Henry’s writing 37. According to the passage, Porter’s Father was A. responsible for his move to La Salle County in Texas B. the person who gave him a life-long love of books C. a medical doctor D. a licensed pharmacist 38. The word “allegedly” in line 9 is closest in meaning to A. supposedly B. reportedly C. wrongly D. mistakenly 39. Which of the following is true, according to the passage? A. both of Porter’s wives died before he died B. Porter left school at 15 to become a pharmacist C. Porter wrote a column for the Houston Daily Post called “Rolling Stone” D. the first recorded use of his pseudonym was in Austin 40. The word “venture” in line 12 is closest in meaning to A. challenging experiment B. bold initiative C. speculative action D. sorry experience
