Reading Comprehension (35 minutes)
Directions: There are 4 passages in this
part. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished statements. For
each of them there are four choices marked A), B), C) and D). You should decide
on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a
single line through the center.
Questions 21 to 25 are
based on the following passage.
In the early days of the internet, many
people worried that as people in the rich world embraced new computing and
communications technologies, people in the poor world would be left stranded on
the wrong side of a "digital divide." Yet the debate over the digital divide is
founded on a myth-that plugging poor countries into the internet will help them
to become rich rapidly.
This is highly unlikely, because the digital divide
is not a problem in itself, but a symptom of deeper, more important divides: of
income, development and literacy. Fewer people in poor countries than in rich
ones own computers and have access to the internet simply because they are too
poor, are illiterate, or have other more immediate concerns, such as food,
health care and security. So even if it were possible to wave a magic wand and
cause a computer to appear in every household on earth, it would not achieve
very much: a computer is not useful if you have no food or electricity and
cannot read. Yet such wand-waving-through the construction of specific local
infrastructure projects such as rural telecenters-is just the sort of thing for
which the UN's new fund is intended.
This sort of thing is the wrong way to
go about addressing the inequality in access to digital technologies: it is
treating the symptoms, rather than the underlying causes. The benefits of
building rural computing centers, for example, are unclear. Rather than trying
to close the divide for the sake of it, the more sensible goal is to determine
how best to use technology to promote bottom-up development. And the answer to
that question turns out to be remarkably clear: by promoting the spread not of
PCs and the internet, but of mobile phones.
21. What is the main idea of
A) Plugging poor countries into the internet will help them
to become rich rapidly.
B) Poor countries should be given more basic
devices other than advanced ones.
C) Rich countries should help poor ones
D) People in poor countries cannot afford devices such as
22. What did the author mean by referring "digital divide." (Line
3, Para. 1)?
A) Digital technology will make the gap between rich world and
poor world wider.
B) Digital technology will divide people into rich and
C) People can be divided digitally.
D) To divide people in
digital world is wrong.
23. We can infer from the 2nd paragraph
A) people in poor countries cannot use computer because of
B) poor people cannot use computers.
C) there would be no
magic to cause a computer to appear in every household on earth.
in poor countries need more basic living conditions than computers.
Considering the following sentences, which one would the author most
A) Digital technology is useless.
B) Digital divide will help
poor countries becoming rich.
C) Poor people need more immediate concerns,
such as food, health care and security.
D) Mobile phones should be promoted
25. The following passage will probably be:
A) How to promote
using of mobile phones.
B) How to use technology to promote bottom-up
C) The benefits of building rural computing centers.
How to meet the need of food, health and security in poor countries.
Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following
"Someday," Andy Warhol once mused, "all department stores will
become museums, and all museums will become department stores." If this has not
happened literally, it has practically. Look at the recent debut of a
shop-within-a-shop at the SoHo branch of the MoMA Design Store: the first North
American Muji outlet. A consumer-goods chain with 280 stores in Japan, Muji has
managed to stake out space in something so presumably untouchable as a museum
design boutique partly because the 270 or so objects for sale in the SoHo store
are "appealing, useful and essential" items for the "design-savvy consumer."
These include office supplies and storage pieces, but also items like a very
clever set of $42 cardboard speakers. The Muji style is sleek, clean, unfussy
and, at least by some standards, affordable.
The name Muji is a shortening
of Mujirushi Ryohin, which translates to "no-brand goods." Emphasizing quality
design, sensible use of materials and utilitarian practicality, Muji uses the
slogan "Lower Priced for a Reason." While the stereotype of the logo- obsessed
Japanese consumer lingers, unadorned Muji has thrived. In fact, from the
original line of 40 Muji products, the company now offers more than 5,000 -
everything from clothing to bicycles to furniture to packaged food.
stores have lately become more savvy about selling consumer furniture made by
the same famous designers exhibited in actual museum shows. The MoMA-Muji
collaboration takes this idea to the next logical step. The brand's fine-design
aura and exotic rarity are good for the shop - but the shop has an aura of its
own, one that gives Muji goods a bit more sparkle than they might have if they
were in an ordinary store.
26. The main purpose of author to write this
A) To introduce the museum like Muji company.
forecast what a department store will become.
C) To promote the successful
experience of Muji company.
D) To tell the readers how a department store
27. What did Andy Warhol mean by saying all department
stores will become museums, and all museums will become department stores (Line
1, Para. 1) ?
A) There will be no department store in the future.
Department stores are becoming more and more like museums with the goods
savvy-designed while museums are be coming more and more like department stores
with fussy items.
C) All department stores will become museum.
museums will be replaced by department stores in the future.
28. What dose
savvy (Line 1, Para. 3) mean in this passage?
A) Wit B) Sensible
Cheap D) Stupid
29. The meaning of "While the stereotype of the
logo-obsessed Japanese consumer lingers, unadorned Muji has thrived." (Line 4,
Para. 2) is
A) Japanese consumers believe in the logo of Muji and that's
why Muji has become flourished.
B) Japanese consumers always linger so Muji
C) Muji stores are so unadorned that Japanese consumers can
D) Muji obsesses Japanese consumers by its logo in order to
make them linger.
30. What is NOT correct according to this
A) Reasonable price is a style of Muji, at least by some
B) Now you can find most of the everyday stuffs in Muji
C) In Muji stores, furniture designed by famous designers is now
D) Muji can thrive only because it has a fine-design
Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following
Space is a dangerous place, not only because of meteors（流星）but
also because of rays from the sun and other stars. The atmosphere again acts as
our protective blanket on earth. Light gets through, and this is essential for
plants to make the food which we eat. Heat, too, makes our environment
endurable. Various kinds of rays come through the air from outer space, but
enormous quantities of radiation from the sun are screened off. As soon as men
leave the atmosphere they are exposed to this radiation but their spacesuits or
the walls of their spacecraft, if they are inside, do prevent a lot of radiation
Radiation is the greatest known danger to explorers in space. The
unit of radiation is called "rem". Scientists have reason to think that a man
can put up with far more radiation than 0.1 rem without being damaged; the
figure of 60 rems has been agreed on. The trouble is that it is extremely
difficult to be sure about radiation damage - a person may feel perfectly well,
but the cells of his or her sex organs may be damaged, and this will no be
discovered until the birth of deformed children or even
Missions of the Apollo flights have had to cross belts of
high amount of rems. So far, no dangerous amounts of radiation have been
reported, but the Apollo missions have been quite short. We simply do not know
yet how men are going to get on when they spend weeks and months outside the
protection of the atmosphere, working in a space laboratory. Drugs might help to
decrease the damage done by radiation, but no really effective ones have been
found so far.
31. According to the first paragraph, the atmosphere is
essential to man in that _______.
A) it protects him against the harmful
rays from space
B) it provides sufficient light for plant growth
supplies the heat necessary for human survival
D) it screens off the
32. We know from the passage that _______.
to even tiny amounts of radiation is fatal
B) the effect of exposure to
radiation is slow in coming
C) radiation is avoidable in space
D) astronauts in spacesuits needn't worry about radiation
33. The harm radiation has done to the Apollo crew members
A) is significant B) seems overestimated
C) is enormous D)
34. It can be inferred from the passage that
A) the Apollo mission was very successful
B) protection from
space radiation is no easy job
C) astronauts will have deformed children or
D) radiation is not a threat to well-protected space
35. The best title for this passage would be _______.
Atmosphere and Our Environment
B) Research on Radiation
C) Effects of
D) Importance of Protection Against Radiation
Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage.
been thought and said that Africans are born with musical talent. Because music
is so important in the lives of many Africans and because so much music is
performed in Africa, we are inclined to think that all Africans are
The impression is strengthened when we look at ourselves and
find that we have become largely a society of musical spectators（旁观）. Music is
important to us, but most of us can be considered consumers rather than
producers of music. We have records, television, concerts, and radio to fulfill
many of our musical needs.
In most situations where music is performed in
our culture it is not difficult to distinguish the audience from the performers,
but such is often not the case in Africa. Alban Ayipaga, a Kasena
semiprofessional musician from northern Ghana, says that when his flute（长笛）and
drum ensemble（歌舞团）is performing. "Anybody can take part". This is true, but
Kasena musicians recognize that not all people are equally capable of taking
part in the music. Some can sing along with the drummers, but relatively few can
drum and even fewer can play the flute along with the ensemble. It is fairly
common in Africa for there to be an ensemble of expert musicians surrounded by
others who join in by clapping, singing, or somehow adding to the totality of
musical sound. Performing nucleus and the additional performers, active
spectators, and passive spectators may be difficult to draw from our point of
36. The difference between us and Africans, as far as music is

D) people have records, television sets and radio to fulfill
their musical needs
38. The author of the passage implies that
A) all Africans are musical and therefore much music is performed
B) nor all Africans are born with musical talent although music
is important in their lives
C) most Africans are capable of joining in the
by playing musical instruments
D) most Africans perform as well as

refers to _______
A) musicians famous in Africa

passage would be _______
