Ⅳ．Reading Comprehension（35 分） Directions：Read the following passages. Each passages 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 heard. （A） A student who enters a university in the second half of the 20th century is in a new situation. He is not like the young man of the early 19th who came to sit at the feet of the masters and left as a
master. That situation no longer exists, because now it is not only the student who changes. He may grow fast, but science grows still faster. The young German philosophy Hegel, writing at the beginning of the 19th century, believed that one man’s mind could contain all the knowledge of his times. At that time it was perfectly possible for a man to hold such a belief and to base his life on it. Hegel’s friend Goethe wrote a famous poem about a young man who hoped to translate this purpose into reality. They young man in the poem was called Fraust. But Hegel’s situation was slightly different from Fraust’s because Fraust, the hero of the poem, had the devil to help him, while Hegel had only his professors. Today a very different situation exists, a situation in which the professor and the devil have lost most of their power. Today a student cannot master knowledge, he can only be its servant. He knows that he can become familiar only with a small corner of knowledge, and that his learning will always be imperfect and incomplete. But he can still hope to add something to the sum of knowledge, and so make the situation slightly more difficult for those who come after him. 65．The poem about Fraust is mentioned to tell us A．he was a young man. B．he got the devil’s help. C．the situation was slightly more difficult for those who came after him. D．today’s learning situation is much different from that in the past. 66．A student of the 20th century is faced with a new situation because A．he has to learn entirely on his own. C．science grows very fast. 67．Today a student knows that . . .
B．he can never be a master now. D．he is changing all the time
A．his knowledge is often incorrect. B．he cannot learn more than the students in the 19th century did. C．those who come after him will have greater difficulties in learning D．his knowledge is very limited compared with the total amount 68．The best title for this passage might be A．Hegel, the Great German Philosopher. B．The Learning Situation in the Modern University C．How to Study at a Modern University D．The Rapid Development of Science （B）
In May 1994, When Ralph Illion was a sailor stationed in the Pacific, he wrote a love letter to a girl named Gloria back in Chicago. He also wrote to his wife, Lillian. You can imagine Lillian’s surprise when she opened her letter and found Gloria’s included. “Dear Gloria,”it began.“It’s about time I introduced myself. We haven’t met, yet I have heard so much about you, I must say I’ve fallen in love.” “This confession might come as a shock, since you know nothing about me except what other people have told you. Don’t take them too seriously. I’m really a bad fellow once you get to know me. And my feelings for you will never change as long as I live.” “I hope this makes the proper impression and you won’t think me too bold. Send me a picture. And please keep my love for you locked in your heart, have it opened only when I call for it in person.” Gloria, now in her mid-40s, mailed me the letter, along with the one Ralph wrote in May 1944 to Lillian. Gloria was three months old when Ralph, her father, mailed them both. He’d been on a warship for ten months and had never seen her. He’s 80 now and still happily married to Lillian, Gloria’s mom. 69．After Lillian read these letters . B．she didn’t know what to do D．she was very glad and laughed

The incidents make people angry who believe that American children are harmed by watching too much TV. They claim children can’t tell between the fiction of TV and reality , and TV distracts them from learning and makes them violent . To estimate the impact of TV on young people, “Life” magazine hires a company to interview hundreds of school children in Nora Springs , Iowa and in Dallas , Texas . Although the two cities are very different , the company finds children in each city watch the same TV shows . Many Iowa children , who watch an average of three hours of TV a day , recognizing that life on TV is rosier that what they experience . They favourite shows are situation comedies about American families in trouble . Many boys like violent shows about police detectives or heroes , girls particularly soap operas-stories about families and friends . On the whole , children find real violence on news programs hard to take . “If you see a bus crash on the news , it’s frightening,” one-fifth grader says . By and large , the Iowa children agree that the best thing about TV is it makes you laugh .
Children in Dallas are savvier about programs of drug use on TV. “they don’t really show them doing it right . On TV they are not real.” A fifth grader says . “life” agrees with a 1988 study by the U. S Department of education that finds children are none the worse for watching TV. The study finds TV doesn’t have lasting effect on children . On the contrary , kids show good judgment about what they watch . “There are very few good shows on TV anymore,” a 10-year-old boy says . While the debate about TV is so heated , the “Life” survey gives hope that American kids aren’t wasting three or four hours a day (what is worse , by the time young people enter college today , they will have devoted more time to watching television than they will spend in college ). However , a child watching TV isn’t reading a good book of joining in healthful sports . 76．The main idea of the passage is . A．children who watch three or more hours of TV a day are smarter than children who watch only one hour a day B．watching too much TV can cause children to go out and kill people . C．children learn about drugs from watching TV D．children learn from TV and can tell reality from what they see on it . 77．Children who see real violence on TV news programs . A．change the channel to watch other programs B．think TV gives a very positive image of friendship C．are sometimes upset and scared D．live in Iowa or Texas 78．Children who enter college today . A．have spent more time watching TV than they will spend in college . B．usually cause the satisfaction of the society C．think life on TV is happier that their life at home D．watch most the same TV shows as children in Dallas 79．The “Life” survey of children’s TV habits . A．concludes that watching up to seven hours a day of TV is good for children B．agree with the U.S. Department of Education study that found few negative effects from watching TV C．concludes that there aren’t any good shows on TV any more D．concludes that children shouldn’t pour gasoline on sleeping man . （E） Directions : Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading form A-F for each paragraph . There is one extra heading which you do not need . A．The information shown on the cards being used is to the same form country to country . B．Not all the countries use the card for the same purpose . C．Some countries may stop the terrorism by using the card D．How to keep the information into the card ?
E．All the nations prefer to use the card . F．What is one of the differences between Chin’s new and current ID cards ? 80． The plastic identification (ID) cards carried by all Chinese citizens over 16 are to be replaced with electronic cards from next year . The new cards , which most people will have by 2005, contain a microchip on which personal information is stored . This can be checked against databases kept by the government . 81． “The information will be locked into the card so that people won’t be able to use false identities,” said Ren Tianbu , a security official in Shenyang . 82． China’s present plastic identity cards were introduced 17 years ago , and a similar system is used by many other countries . However , the information shown on a card differs from nation. Most ID cards show the holder ’s name , sex, date of birth and photograph , as well as the card’s expiry date and number . 83． Germany, France and Spain all use ID cards , but there are some developed nations who dislike the idea . The US, Canada, New Zealand , Australia, Sweden and Britain are among those with no national ID card . However , some of the counties have ID cards for particular uses . For example , Australia and the United States use a driving license to identify people . 84． Identity cards are introduced for a variety of reasons . Race , politics and religion were often at the heart of older ID systems . In recent years , though , ID cards have been linked to national information databases , which form the basis of how a government manages a country . The US, Britain and some other countries are considering a national ID systems a way of preventing possible terrorist attacks . 80．Paragraph 1 . 81．Paragraph 2 . 82．Paragraph 3 . 83．Paragraph 4 . 84．Paragraph 5 .

Why ? Because when money is gone , we can earn it back; however , when time is gone ,it will never return . It is clear that the time we can use is limited . Therefore , we should make full use of our time to do useful things . As students , we must not relax our efforts in our studies , so we can serve our country better in the future . But some people do not know the importance of time . They spend their precious time smoking , drinking and chatting . They do not realize that wasting time is equal to wasting a part of their valuable life . In short , we should form the good habit of making full use of time . Don’t put off what can be done today until tomorrow . Thank you .
