(A) One of my most surprising findings as a student is been living 26 25 parents do not always accept 27 your adulthood. I was always told that once you get to college, your parents realize that you have your own and can make your own decisions. This idea was rejected 28 I came home for Thanksgiving. At first, everything was going as my mother. 29 (smoothly) as possible.
The first night I went to the Berkeley campus to visit my friend Sara, without any argument from when I called her to say I had decided to spend the night at Sara’s dorm, my 30 (make) mom informed me that she wanted me home at one a.m. I was wild with anger! I

However much I tried to reason with my mother, she insisted things are different when I am home, and that they were the 31 paying my bills. And kids, this is true. No matter how much you want to fight it, mommy and daddy are still holding the purse strings, whether you are 18 or not. Sometimes it is best to sit back, shut up, and do 32 they ask. (B) A land free from destruction, plus wealth, natural resources, and labor supply — all these were important factors in helping England to become the center for the Industrial Revolution, but they were not enough. Something else 33 (need) to start the industrial process. That 34 could invent machines, find new ―something special‖ was men — creative individuals

Officials at Boston College have made what may be a critical decision: they’ve stopped giving out new email accounts to incoming students. The officials realized that the students had already established digital were just not being used, but, 41 by the time they entered college, so the new email addresses 42 , the college will offer forwarding (转发) services. 43 at Boston College won’t be given an actual email 44 inbox, be it Gmail,
Starting next year, freshman
account complete with login and inbox, just an email address. This address, in the format of johnsmith@bc. edu will simply forward mail to the student’s already Windows Live Mail, Yahoo Mail, AOL, or whatever else they may be using. The college reached a smart decision after first looking into outsourcing （外包） their email to the cloud. While the Boston College decision may have been made for than anything, we can easily imagine this as being the start of a new trend. Can you even imagine a U.S. college student who didn’t have an email address of their own by the time they were a freshma n? It’s 47 46 unheard of. Today’s students are digital immersed (浸润) in technology from the day they were born. It simply doesn’t make 48 , there are still some challenges to overcome, though. For example, a 49 the institution to the 50 messages from the university with regard to their 45 reasons more
sense to give them yet another account to manage when they enter college. By going this student who changes their email carrier will probably forget to change and could then miss out on courses, scholarship, safety information, etc. In the end, we think the decision Boston College made could easily be the start of a new trend. We’re sure the students like it, too.

第 5 页 共 15 页
Like many other small boys, I was fascinated by cars, especially because my oldest brother was a bit of a car guy and subscribed to cool magazines like Car and Driver and Motor Trend. Every so often, one of those magazines would run an article on the ―Car of the Future‖. They featured unconventional things like small nuclear reactors as power sources. Yet, frankly, my car doesn’t do anything that my brother’s Studebaker didn’t do. It goes, it stops, it burns gasoline. I still have to steer it, and it still runs into things if I don’t steer it carefully. But guess what? All of these things are likely to change in the not-so-distant future. It may not burn gasoline, I may not have to steer it, and it may be a lot better at not running into things. Airbags aren’t the be-all and end-all in safety. In fact, considering the recent news about people occasionally being killed by their airbags in low-speed crashes, they obviously still need some development. But they aren’t going away, and in fact, you can expect to see cars appearing with additional, side-impact airbags, something some European car manufacturers already offer. Better than systems to minimize injury in the event of an accident, however, are systems that minimize the likelihood of an accident happening in the first place? Future cars may be able to remove many of the major causes of accidents, including drunk-driving, and tailgating (与前车距 离过近). Cars could be equipped with sensors that can detect alcohol in a driver’s system and prevent the car from being started, for example. As early as next year, you’ll be able to buy cars with radar-equipped control systems. If the radar determines you’re closing too quickly with the car in front, it will ease up on the throttle（油门）. Scientists are now working on a system that can brake, accelerate and steer a vehicle down a highway on its own. Will cars eventually be able to drive themselves? 66. The author was fascinated by cars because ________. A. other small boys liked to own a car of their own, too B. he read untraditional things about cars in his brother’s magazines C. his oldest brother loved to take him to places in his car D. he often booked cool car magazines himself 67. By saying ―my car doesn’t do anything that my brother’s Studebaker didn’t do‖, the author means that ________. A. my car is far better than my brother’s B. my car is not as good as my brother’s C. much improvement has been made in the design of cars recently D. not much has changed in the performance of cars so far 68. Which of the following statements is true of airbags? A. They are going to disappear gradually. B. They are in need of further improvement. C. They are a standard feature of European cars. D. They kill people instead of protecting them in low-speed crashes. 69. According to the author, what will future cars do if the sensors detect alcohol in the driver’s system?

A. They will not start. C. They will brake automatically. (B)
B. They will ease up on the throttle. D. They will give a warning in advance.

70. You work from 9:00 a. m. to 4:30 p. m. every day. Which school will you choose? A. Global English Center and the International House. B. Global English Center and Modem Language School. C. Modern Language School and the 21st Century. D. The 21st Century and the International House. 71. The 21st Century is different from the other three schools in that ________. A. its teaching quality is better C. its courses are more advanced B. it requires an entrance examination D. it is nearest to the city center
72. You will probably prefer to go to the International House because it ________. A. offers sightseeing and social activities at low prices B. costs less than the other schools C. has a special course in spoken English D. has native English teachers 73. If you take the four-month evening program at the International House, you will pay about ________. A. 60 yuan B. 240 yuan (C) Western airliner manufacturers seem to be tripping over (绊倒) themselves in their eagerness to sign cooperative agreements with Asian partners as a low-cost route to developing new airliners. Their potential Asian partners seem to be tripping over themselves to sign such agreements, as a low-cost route to acquiring new airliner technology. If they are not careful the two sides will end up tripping over each other: the one by selling its birth-right for short-term gain, the other by trying to break into a market which isn’t big enough to sustain (忍受) it. Technology transfer works in a growing market, where the aspirations of the new entrant receiving that technology can be met through expansion. The airliner market is not such a device. Even the most optimistic projections of airliner sales for the next 20 years show that airliner manufacture can only be profitable if a small number of aircraft builders share the available sales. It follows that if new manufacturers come into the market and take sales, their sales must come from substitution, not expansion. Given the complexity of today’s airliners, it is unlikely that any new entrant will have both the financial and technical resources to come into the market without the involvement of an established manufacturer. In the short term, such involvement may not be to the exclusive benefit of the new entrant: most of the established manufacturers are searching for ways to reduce costs of manufacture. In the short term, it can be of benefit to an established Western manufacturer to have either components of complete air–frames made or assembled in lower-wage economics such as China, Taiwan or Korea, while retaining the design, development and marketing of aircraft for itself. It would be a very unwise Western manufacturer which did not notice the fact that these developing C. 720 yuan D. 960 yuan
第 8 页 共 15 页
economies are acquiring skills (like computing) at least as quickly as they are acquiring skills in metal bashing (猛击). The danger comes when the new entrant no longer needs the established Western partner because it has acquired the technical and intellectual ability to design and build its own aircraft. An Asian partner may well find itself in the happy position of having the low-cost labour base, the high-cost technology base and the vital financial base to build a new airliner. 74. The author’s attitude towards Western/Eastern cooperation can be described as ________. A. positive B. progressive C. conservative D. negative 75. ―The airliner market is not such a device‖ means that the airliner market ________. A. does not encourage technology transfer B. is too limited to offer chances of success C. requires hi-tech rather than unaccepted devices D. is full of competitions for new entrants 76. According to the author, a wise established manufacturer should ________. A. try to benefit from both financial and technical resources B. break up his partnership with the East once profits are made C. keep a tight told over hi-tech development and marketing of airliners D. cooperate with Asian partners for a short time 77. The word ―base‖ in the last paragraph represents ________. A. a place for aircraft production C. a research institute B. the operation of aircraft D. a position where to build office
Section C Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. ―There is a senseless concept that children grow up and leave home when they are 18, and the truth is far from that,‖ says sociologist Larry Bumpass of the University of Wisconsin. Today, unexpected numbers of young adults are living with their parents. Analysts raised a variety of reasons for this return to the nest. One important reason is that the marriage age is rising, a condition that makes home and its pleasantness particularly attractive to young people, which is second to skyrocketing housing costs to which young people find their wings attached. Besides, a high divorce rate and a declining remarriage rate are sending economically pressed and emotionally hurt survivors back to parental shelters. For some, the expense of an away-from-home college education has become so great that many students now attend local schools. Living at home, says Knighton, a school teacher, continues to give her security and moral support. Her mother agreed, ―It is ridiculous for the kids to pay all that money for rent. It makes sense for kids to stay at home.‖ But sharing the family home requires adjustments for all. There are the quarrels over bathrooms, telephones and privacy. Some families, however, manage the delicate balancing act. But for others, it proves too difficult. Michelle Del Turco, 24, has been
第 9 页 共 15 页
home three times — and left three times. ―What I considered a social drink, my dad considered an alcohol problem,‖ she explains. ―He never liked anyone I dated, so I either had to hide away to meet them at friends’ houses.‖ It is really hard to say how long adult children should live with their parents before moving on. Nevertheless, it is commonly recognized that lengthy homecomings are a mistake and they accidentally destroy the advantage of brief visits that will strengthen the relationship between parents and children. Children, struggling to establish separate identities, can end up with ―a sense of inadequacy, defeat and failure.‖ And aging parents, who should be enjoying some financial and personal freedom, find themselves stuck with responsibilities, which is definitely a stress for them. (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN EIGHT WORDS.) 78. What’s the most important reason for young adults’ returning to the nest? 79. Knighton enjoys living at home due to ________. 80. What has resulted in the Michelle Del Turco’s unhappy experience with her dad? 81. From the passage, we can conclude it is ________ that benefit(s) both adult children and their parents to avoid lengthy homecomings.

W: What’s the hurry? We’d like you to stay for dinner. M: Well, thank you. I’d love to. But Mary and I have to meet my parents at the railway station. Q: What will the man do next? 5. W: Jack must have been joking when he said that he was going to quit his job. M: Don’t be so sure. He told me that he expects to sell his house.

W: Don’t worry, Bob. Overseas mail is often slow. Q: What can you learn about the man from the conversation? 10. W: I heard you received the top grade on all four exams this semester. M: Only on three, I’m afraid. Q: What does the man mean? 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 on 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. In China, people use chopsticks when they eat meals. Chinese people can use chopsticks to eat any kinds of food except soup. They use a spoon to eat soup. They cut the meat into small pieces before they cook it. They do not need to cut the meat up while they are eating, so they can eat their meals with chopsticks. In the U.S., people use forks, spoons, and knives when they eat. In fact, American people usually eat beef, steak, or chicken. They cook that meat in one whole piece. They need to use knives and forks to cut them up. Americans use the fork with their left hand and use the knife with their right hand when they cut meat. After they cut it into small pieces, they change the fork from the left hand to the right hand. Then they eat the meat. When Chinese people use a fork and a knife, they feel that their hands are very busy and that this way of eating is too complicated. 11. Why do Chinese people like to use chopsticks? 12. Why do Americans use knives and forks when they eat? 13. What is the main idea of the passage? Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. Tom, a reporter friend of ours, passed the large street level windows of the New York Public Library. He noticed that a man on the other side of the window was reading that day's newspaper. With delight Tom saw that the paper was open to the very page for which he had written a big article. The reporter stopped, fixing his eyes on the man. Would the man read deeply into the article? To the bottom of the page? It was one of those rare, unexpected moments of which a writer dreams. The writer's nose got closer to the glass. The page wasn't turned: good, the reader was interested. Our friend stayed there a bit longer to learn the answer to the important question: Would the reader turn to the page where the story was continued? Two minutes passed. Four minutes. Nothing. The man must be a very slow reader indeed. A few moments more and the writer stepped around to look carefully at the reader's face, at his eyes.

That was when he realized the reader had fallen asleep. 14. Why did Tom stop to look at the man? 15. What did Tom expect the man to do next? 16. What are the man doing while Tom was looking at his face? 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. W: Welcome to the Road Office of Canada. Carol speaking. How can I help you? M: I’d like to have a driving licence. I’m a visiting scholar here. W: Yes. What you have to do is just visiting your local Road Office. M: Yes, but I am not a Canadian. I’m from China. I am invited to teach botany in a university for half a year here. W: Then you should carry an English translation of your Chinese licence if yours is not an international Driving Permit. M: It’s easy. I can translate it into English all by myself. W: No. You must have an official translation. In fact you may have it done in your local Road office and pay 40 dollars for the translation. M: That’s to say, I am permitted to drive if I hold my current Chinese driving licence and the official English translation. W: That’s right. But that’s only valid for 3 months of time. M: I see. Thanks. Listen again, please. Complete the form. Write ONE WORD for each answer. Blanks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation: M: I’m a business reporter from Time magazine.
