  IV. Reading Comprehension

  Directions: Read the following four passages. Each passage is followed by several question 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

  You either have it, or you don't-a sense of direction, that is. But why is it that some people could find their way across the Sahara without a map, while others can lose themselves in the next street

  Scientists say we're all born with a sense of direction, but it is not properly understand ho wit works. One theory is that people with a good sense of direction have simply worked harder at developing it. Research being carried out at Liverpool University supports this idea and suggests that if we don't use it, we lose it.

  "Children as young as seven have the ability to find their way around," says Jim Martland, Research Director of the project. "However if they are not allowed out alone or are taken everywhere by car, they never develop the skills."

  Jim Martland also emphasize that young people should be taught certain skills to improve their sense of direction. He makes the following suggestions:

  If you are using a map, turn it so it relates to the way you are facing.

  If you leave your bike in a strange place, put it near something like a big stone or a tree. Note landmarks on the route as you go away from your bike. When you return, go back along the same route.

  Simplify the way of finding your direction by using lines such as streets in a town, streams, or walls in the countryside to guide you. Count your steps so that you know how far you have gone and note any landmarks such as tower blocks or hills which can help to find out where you are.

  Now you need never get lost again!

  65. Scientists believe that ____.

  A. some babies are born with a sense of direction

  B. people learn a sense of direction as they grow older

  C. They have a sense of direction and can find their way around.

  D. They can develop a good sense of direction if they are driven around in a car.

  A. tie it to a tree so as to prevent it from being stolen

  B. draw a map of the route to help remember where it is

  C. avoid taking the same route when you come back to it

  "Come in, Kim. Have a seat, please." said Bill Williams, the manager. This was Iim's first experience with an assessment. After only six months he was due for a raise if this assessment was satisfactory.

  "Kim," began Bill Williams. "I am very pleased with the quality of your work. I have nothing but praise for your devotion and your hard work. My only concern is that you are not active enough in putting forward your suggestions."

  "I know that, Kim. And please, call me Bill. But what I expect if for you to think independently and introduce new ideas. I need more input from you-more feedback on how things are gong I don't need a "yes man". You never tell me what you think. You just smile as though everything is fine."

  "But," said Kim, "I feel that since you are my superior, it would be presumptuous of me to tell you what to do."

  "I'm not asking you to tell me what to do, but what you think we could do. To make suggestions, I employed you because I respect your experience in this field, but you are not communicating your thoughts to me."

  "Yes, I see. I'm not accustomed to this, but I will try to do as you say, Bill."

  "I THIRST"

  Each day water-related diseases kill 3,900 of the world's children

  Across the world, 11 billion people have no access to clean drinking water. More than 2.6 billion people lack basic sanitation(卫生设备).

  the combination proves deadly. Each year, diseases related to inadequate water and sanitation kill between 2 and 5 million people and cause an estimated 80 percent of all sicknesses in the developing world. Safe drinking water is a precondition for health and the fight against child death rate, inequality between men and women, and poverty.

  Consider these facts:

  The average distance that women in Africa and Asia walk to collect water is 6 kilometers.

  Only 58 percent of children in sub-Saharan Africa are drinking safe water, and only 37 percent of children n South Asia have access to even a basic toilet.

  Each year in India alone, 73 million working days are lost to water-borne diseases.

  Here are three ways you can help:

  1) Write Congress

  Current U.S. foreign aid for drinking water and sanitation budgets only one dollar per year per American citizen. Few members of Congress have ever received a letter from voters about clean drinking water abroad.

  2) Sponsor a project with a faith-based organization

  Many U. S. religious groups already sponsor water and sanitation projects, working with partner organizations abroad. Simply put, a single-project by a U.S. organization can make safe water a reality for thousands of people.

  3) Support nonprofit water organizations

  Numerous U.S.-based nonprofits work skillfully abroad in community-led projects related to drinking water and sanitation. Like the sample of non-profits noted as follows, some organizations are large, others small-scale, some operate worldwide, others are devoted to certain areas in Africa, Asia, or Latin America. Support them generously.

  72. The three facts presented in the passage are used to illustrate that ____.

  A. poverty can result in water-borne diseases

  B. people have no access to clean drinking water

  C. women's rights are denied in some developing countries

  D. safe drinking water should be a primary concern

  73. The intended readers of the passage are ____.

  A. Americans B. overseas sponsors. C. Congressmen D. U.S.-based water organizations

  74. The main purpose of the passage is to call on people to ____.

  A. get rid of water-related diseases in developing countries

  B. donate money to people short of water through religious groups

  C. fight against the worldwide water shortage and sanitation problem

  D. take joint action in support of some nonprofit water organizations

  75. What information will probably be provided following the last paragraph

  A. A variety of companies and their worldwide operation.

  B. A list of nonprofit water organizations to make contact with.

  C. Some ways to get financial aids from U.S. Congress.

  D. A few water resources exploited by some world-famous organizations.

  D

  Equipped only with a pair of binoculars(双筒望远镜) and ready to spend long hours waiting in all weathers for a precious glance of a rare bullfinch(红腹灰雀). Britain's birdwatchers had long been supposed to be lovers of a minority sport. But new figures show birdwatching is fast becoming a popular pastime, with almost three million of us absorbed in our fluttering feathered friends.

  Devoted birdwatchers, those prepared to travel thousands of miles for a sighting of a rare Siberian bird, are fast being joined by a new breed of follower whose interest is satiated by watching a few finches(雀科鸣鸟) on a Sunday walk or putting up a bird-box in the back garden.

  "Almost three million UK birdwatchers is certainly possible if you include everyone with only a casual interest," Stephen Moss said in his newly published book?A Bird in the Rush: a Social History of Birdwatching-which records the pursuit from the rich Victorian Englishman's love of shooting rare birds to the less offensive observational tendencies of birdwatchers today.

  Television wildlife programmes have helped to fuel the new trend. Last summer, BBC 2's Britain Goes Wild was a surprise success. It pulled in three million viewers and led to bird-houses selling out across the UK as 45,000 people promised to put up a box.

  Birdwatchers networking system first came to the attention of the nation in 1989, when a birdwatcher caught sight of the first Vermivora chrysoptera-a golden-winged songbird from North America-to be seen in Britain. He put a message out on the network service Birdline, and the next day 3,000 birdwatchers proved the full pull of a truly rare bird as they visited the Tesco car park in Kent, where it had settled. Today, birdwatchers can log on to www.birdline.co.uk or have news of the latest sightings texted to their phones.

  "Multimillion-pound spending on binoculars, bird tood and boxes point to the increasing numbers of birdwatchers." said David Cromack, the editor of Bird Watching magazine. "The number of people involved is so big that they have great potential to influence government decisions affecting the environment."

  76. The word "satiated" in paragraph 2 can best be replaced by "____".

  A. affected B. shared C. satisfied D. narrowed

  77. What happened after the message of seeing a Vermivora chrysoptera was put on the network

  A. Birdwatchers helped the rare bird settle in Kent.

  B. Large numbers of birdwatchers went to view the bird.

  C. Many birdwatchers logged on to the website for details.

  D. Birdwatchers showed their determination to protect the rare bird.

  78. Which of the following CANNOT be true according to the passage

  A. Television wildlife programmes started the popular pastime of birdwatching.

  B. The network service has contributed to the rapid development of birdwatching.

  C. Birdwatching in Britain was long considered a sport with a small group of followers.

  D. The current situation of birdwatching may promote the protection of the environment.

  Directions: Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading from A-F for each paragraph. There is one extra heading which you do not need.

  A. Goods for auction sales

  B. Definition of bidding

  C. Way to sell more goods by auction

  D. Auction sales in history

  E. Brief introduction to auctions

  F. Making a larger profit as an auctioneer

  80. _______________

  Auctions are public sales of goods, conducted by an officially approved auctioneer. He asks the crowd assembled in the auction-room to make offers, or "bids", for the various items on sale. He encourages buyers to bid higher figures, and finally names the highest bidder as the buyer of the goods. This is called "knocking down" the goods, for the bidding ends when the auctioneer strikes a small hammer on the table at which he stands.

  81. _______________

  The ancient Roman probably invented sales by auction, and the English word comes from the Latin auctio, meaning "increase". The Romans usually sold in this way the goods taken in war. In England in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, goods were often sold "by the candle": a short candle was lit by the auctioneer, and bids could be made while it stayed alight.

  82. _______________

  Practically all goods whose qualities vary are sold by auction. Among these are coffee: skins, wool, tea, furs, silk and wines. Auction sales are also usual for land and property, furniture, pictures, rare books, old china and similar works of art.

  83. _______________

  An auction is usually advertised beforehand with full particulars of the articles to be sold and where and when they can be viewed by potential buyers. If the advertisement cannot give full details, catalogues are printed, and each group of goods to be sold together, called a "lot", is usually given a number. The auctioneer need not begin with Lot 1 continue in the order of numbers; he may wait until he notices the fact that certain buyers are in the room and then produce the lots they are likely to be interested in.

  84. _______________

  The auctioneer's services are paid for in the form of a percentage of the price the goods are sold for. The auctioneer therefore has a direct interest in pushing up the bidding as high as possible. He will not waste time by starting the bidding too low. He will also play on the opponents among his buyers and succeed in getting a high price by encouraging two business competitors to bid against each other.
