(A) A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men aboard were able to swim to a small, desert-like island. Not knowing what else to do, the two survivors agreed that they had no alternativethan to pray to God. However, to find out whose prayers were more powerful, they agreed to divide the territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island. The first thing they prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the island, and he was able to eat its fruit. But the other man‘s parcel of land remained barren.
5 / 11
After a week, the first man became lonely and decided to pray for a wife. The next day, another ship was wrecked and the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the island. But on the other side of the island, there was nothing. Soon thereafter the first man prayed for a house, clothes and more food. The next day, like magic, all of these things were given to him. However, the second man still had nothing. Finally, the first man prayed for a ship so that he and his wife could leave the island, and in the morning he found a ship docked at his side of the island. The first man boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the second man on the island, considering the other man unworthy to receive God‘s blessings since none of his prayers had been answered. As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from Heaven booming, ―Why are you leaving your companion on the island?‖ ―My blessings are mine alone since I was the one who prayed for them,‖ the first man answered. ―His prayers were all unanswered and so he doesn‘t deserve anything.‖ ―You are mistaken!‖ the voice rebuked him. ―He had only one prayer, which I answered. If not for that, you would not have received any of my blessings.‖ ―Tell me,‖ the first man asked the voice, ―what did he pray for that I should owe him anything?‖ ―He prayed that all your prayers would be answered.‖ For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers alone, but those of another praying for us. So what you do for others is more important than what you do for yourself. 65. The first man‘s wife is _____. A. a swimmer who got to the island by accident B. an angel sent by God to keep him company C. a survivor from another wrecked ship D. a native person on the desert-like island 66.

Barack Obama urged congressional leaders on Monday to act quickly to pass a huge stimulus package for the U.S. economy. He met with a bipartisan (concerning or involving two different political parties) group of lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Later he met individually with Democratic and Republican House and Senate leaders and spoke to a bipartisan leadership gathering. In comments to reporters early on Monday, he emphasized the urgency of finalizing economic legislation (立法). ―We have got an extraordinary economic challenge ahead of us,‖ he said, ―We are expecting a sobering job report at the end of the week. Nancy Pelosi and her staff have been extraordinarily helpful in working with our team so that we can shape an economic recovery and reinvestment plan that starts putting people back to work.‖ Mr. Obama wants tax cuts for individual Americans and businesses to make up a significant portion of expected legislation. This could involve as much as $300 billion of a bill that is likely to go beyond $700 billion and include aid to cash-poor U.S. states, and money for alternative energy and a range of infrastructure (基础设施) projects. Later, Mr. Obama said he expects to be able to sign legislation as soon as the end of this month, adding that quick action is necessary to ―break the drive of the U.S. economic depression‖. Emerging later from bipartisan talks with Mr. Obama, Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers discussed with the president how to pass a stimulus package as quickly as possible. ―An economic recovery package that will create jobs immediately and will grow the economy and that is what we talked about today,‖ said Nancy Pelosi. ―How we could do this fast, deliberatively and to act upon it soon.‖ Just how soon that would be, Pelosi would not say. How much support Democrats can obtain from Republicans will depend on the details. But the severity of the U.S. economic depression has created considerable bipartisan backing for quick action. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid said: ―There are investments that we need to make on behalf of the American people to turn around this economy. We felt very good about the meeting; we are confident that we can do this and we have to do this.‖ ―I think the best thing I can do is to decline to comment on what they are going to do going forward,‖ said Dana Perino. ―Obviously, we think that tax cuts were the right way to help our economy get out of the economic depression that this president inherited and we know that tax cuts can stimulate innovation.‖ Asked by reporters how large the economic stimulus package might be, Senate Majority Leader Reid said Obama indicated that all but one of some 28 economists advising him had said it should range from $800 billion to $1.3 trillion. 72. Barack Obama urged congressional leaders and met with bipartisan leaders to _____. A. take over the White House B. end economic decline C. understand each other better D. negotiate political issues 73. If the stimulus package is passed quickly and successfully, it can _____. A. obtain support from Republicans B. finalize economic legislation C. enhance America‘s international position D. provide job opportunities 74. What is the bipartisan leaders‘ attitude towards this meeting? A. Uncertain. B. Hopeful. C. Disappointed. D. Indifferent. 75. What can we infer from the passage? A. The best way out of the economic depression is tax cuts. B. The Republic Party plays the key role in coping with the economic depression. C. Democrats and Republicans will team up in the economic depression.

D. When the stimulus package will be passed is known to the lawmakers. Section C 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. Factors that influence reactions to pollutants B. Possible sources of indoor air pollution C. Ways to identify diseases with similar symptoms D. Long-term effects after repeated exposure E. A commonly-ignored health threat F. Immediate symptoms and regular treatment 76. Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can damage their health, but many do not know that indoor air pollution can also have significant health effects. Environmental Protection Agency studies indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be 2-5 times, and occasionally more than 100 times, higher than outdoor levels. These levels of indoor air pollutants may be of particular concern because most people spend about 90% of their time indoors. 77. There are many sources of indoor air pollution in any home. These include combustion sources such as oil, gas, coal, wood, and tobacco products; building materials and furnishings as diverse as deteriorated asbestos-containing insulation, wet or damp carpet, and cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products; products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies; central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices; and outdoor sources such as radon, pesticides, and outdoor air pollution. 78. Immediate effects may show up after a single exposure or repeated exposures. These include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Such immediate effects are usually short-term and treatable. Sometimes the treatment is simply eliminating the person's exposure to the source of the pollution, if it can be identified. Symptoms of some diseases, including asthma, hypersensitivity and fever, may also show up soon after exposure to some indoor air pollutants. 79. The likelihood of immediate reactions to indoor air pollutants depends on several factors. Age and pre-existing medical conditions are two important influences. In other cases, whether a person reacts to a pollutant depends on individual sensitivity, which varies tremendously from person to person. Some people can become sensitized to biological pollutants after repeated exposures, and it appears that some people can become sensitized to chemical pollutants as well. 80.
9 / 11
Certain immediate effects are similar to those from colds or other viral diseases, so it is often difficult to determine if the symptoms are a result of exposure to indoor air pollution. For this reason, it is important to pay attention to the time and place the symptoms occur. If the symptoms fade or go away when a person is away from the home and return when the person returns, an effort should be made to identify indoor air sources that may be possible causes. Section D Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. Children and adolescents who watch a lot of television are more likely to have antisocial and criminal behavior when they become adults, according to a new University of Otago, New Zealand, study published online in the journal Pediatrics. The study followed a group of around 1,000 children born in the New Zealand city of Dunedin in 1972-1973. Every two years between the ages of 5 and 15, they were asked how much television they watched. Those who watched more television were more likely to have a criminal conviction and were also more likely to have antisocial personality traits in adulthood. The study found that the risk of having a criminal behavior by early adulthood increased by about 30% with every hour that children spent watching TV on an average weeknight. The study also found that watching more television in childhood was associated, in adulthood, with aggressive personality, an increased tendency to experience negative emotions, and an increased risk of antisocial personality disorder; a psychiatric disorder characterised by persistent patterns of aggressive and antisocial behavior. The researchers found that the relationship between TV viewing and antisocial behavior was not explained by socio-economic status, aggressive or antisocial behavior in early childhood, or parenting factors. A study co-author, Lindsay Robertson, says it is not that children who were already antisocial watched more television. ―Rather, children who watched a lot of television were likely to go on to manifest antisocial behavior and personality traits.‖ Other studies have suggested a link between television viewing and antisocial behavior, though very few have been able to demonstrate a cause-and-effect sequence. This is the first ?real-life‘ study that has asked about TV viewing throughout the whole childhood period, and has looked at a range of antisocial outcomes in adulthood. As an observational study, it cannot prove that watching too much television caused the antisocial outcomes, but the findings are consistent with most of the research and provides further evidence that excessive television can have long-term consequences for behavior. Antisocial behavior is a major problem for society. While we‘re not saying that television causes all antisocial behavior, our findings do suggest that reducing TV viewing could go some way towards reducing rates of antisocial behavior in society,‖ says Associate Professor Hancox. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children should watch no more than 1 to 2 hours of quality television programming each day. The researchers say their findings support the idea that parents should try to limit their children‘s television use.

Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage. Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to our Neighborhood Council meeting. I am the president. During the meeting, we will be discussing the items that are listed on the meeting‘s agenda. There are copies of the agenda for your use on the table at the back of the room. Please understand that Neighborhood Councils will limit our discussion to the items listed on the agenda. However, please note that your concern may become the topic of discussion. If you have a general comment on an item, and you may provide us with your comment during the ―Public Comments‖ portion of the meeting. In order for you to speak and be heard on any agenda item, you will be called by me when it is your turn to speak. In order for me to know that you want to speak, please fill out a ―Speaker Card‖. When a person is speaking, there should not be any other discussion occurring in the room. We do not make noise when disagreeing with someone‘s point of view. We will treat one another with respect during this meeting. Last, please turn off your cell phones. (Now listen again) Questions: 11. Where can people find the meeting‘s agenda? (B) 12. What should people do if they want to present their opinions? (D) 13. What is the rule announced by the president? (C) Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. Residents in Dayton could be forced to rise from bed and put out their bins at 5am under proposals to keep streets tidier. They would only be able to leave waste on the public highway for collection during two-hour-long periods — from 5pm to 6pm, and from 5am to 6am. Collections of residential and commercial waste are then timed between 6am and 8am, and 6pm and 8pm. Those residents who fail to meet the restrictions will pay a fine. The public committee says it hopes the move will ―improve the cleanliness and overall street environment‖ by reducing the amount of time waste is left on the street for collection. In a statement the committee said: ―To keep the town‘s streets clean is taking another positive step with proposals to introduce a time-specific waste collection plan in Dayton.‖ However with many working residents likely to arrive home from work after 6pm, homeowners will be forced to rise at 5am to put out their waste. The committee said: ―It will help improve the cleanliness of our streets and make our town centres more pleasant and attractive for all.‖ An informal consultation on the proposals will take place over the coming weeks when officers will be speaking to businesses and residents about the plans. (Now listen again) Questions: 14. When will the rubbish bin be allowed to put outdoors for collection? (C) 15. What is the purpose of the time-specific waste collection? (A) 16. Why do some people have to get up very early to put out their waste? (D) Section C Longer conversations 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 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 library. Can I help you? M: Yes. My biology class is supposed to read a book called Biology and the Modern Age. But I haven‘t been able to find it. W: Yes. Your professor has placed this book on reserve. M: I‘m sorry — I don‘t understand. W: Your professor wants to insure that all students have the opportunity to read it by placing it on reserve. M: Will I be able to find this book, then? W: You can go to the reserve room and MUST read it in the library during that time. M: I see. Where is the reserve room, please? W: It‘s on the third floor and to the right. M: Thanks for your time. (Now listen again) Blacks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation. W: As I was telling you, where you shop depends largely on what you need. So, if you want to buy a CD-player, your best bet would probably be an appliance store such as Best Buy and Radio Shack. M: Why? W: Coz they usually have the best deals. They have sales on their TVs and CD-players every once in a while. M: Hum. I‘ll bet they send you their ads loaded with so-called ―SALES‖! W: I‘ll admit some of their items are high-priced, but at least the shopper has guaranteed quality. There are very few places that have such a wide selection. M: I need to buy disks, at least two disk holders, note cards, and that kind of stuff. W: For office supplies, I suggest Office Max. M: You know, one good thing about living in a campus town, though, is that you can easily get that stuff at any of the bookstores. No doubt they do overcharge. I try to get around that by shopping around. W: Shopping around? M: Yes. That simply means you go to different stores, check out the prices of items you need and purchase them from the store(s) with the lowest price or prices. W: I see. Sounds very practical.
