Section B（每题 1 分，共 12 分） Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage 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 read. (A) When having an interview, it’s not just words you have to think about, but also how you express them. Avoid a flat monotone(单调的) voice that people sometimes get when they are nervous. And it can add so much if you show your excitement and your eagerness to work for that company, and that is where past performance will indicate future performance. So good interviewers will ask you very detailed questions where they’ll put you on the spot and they’ll want to know specifically your role in what you did for a particular project. And so the key to giving a good answer to a behavioral interview question is to do what I call a STAR, S-T-A-R. The S and T stand for explaining a situation or a task that you were given, the A is the action you took and the R is the results. In addition, you need to be prepared before you walk in the door. Go through some mock interviews, if you can have friends ask you questions. Practice in the mirror, answering questions. Go in with three or four things you really want to stress about yourself. And then you can bring those out no matter what question is asked. To follow up after the interview, you can send a thank-you letter. And you can do it by e-mail. In that thank-you letter you do a couple of things. You make sure that you show sincere appreciation for the time that they spent interviewing you. You have another chance to make that case as to how your skills match their needs. 66. What should you think about when having an interview? A. How to express what you want to say. B. How to use a flat monotone voice. C. How to ask very detailed questions. D. How to hide your excitement and eagerness. 67. To give a good answer to a behavioral interview question you needn’t explain _________. A. the action you took B. the results you got C. your eagerness to carry out the project D. a situation or a task that you were given
68. What’s the main purpose of this passage? A. To give suggestions on having an interview. B. To introduce some keys to being a successful interviewer. C. To encourage people to send a thank-letter before interview. D. To advise people to ask friends some questions before interview.

According to statistics, you’re more than twice as likely to die of skin cancer than a woman ,and nine times more likely to die of AIDS . Assuming you make it to the end of your natural term, about 78years for men in Australia , you’ll die on average five years before a woman. There’re many reasons for this ---typically , men take more risks than women and are more likely to drink and smoke—but perhaps more importantly , men don’t go to the doctor. “Men aren’t seeing doctors as often as they should ,” says Dr.Gullotta . “this is particularly so for the over-40s, when diseases tend to strike .” Gullotta say a healthy man should visit the doctor every year or two . For those over 45,it should be at least once a year . Two months ago Gullotta saw a 50-year-old man who had delayed doing anything about his smoker’s cough for a year . “When I finally saw him it had already spread and he has since died from lung cancer ,” he says. “Earlier detection and treatment may not have cured him but it would have prolonged（延长） his life .” According to a recent survey ,95% of women aged between 15 and early 40s see a doctor once a year , compared to 70% of men in the same age group. “A lot of men think they’re invincible (不可战胜的),” Gullatta says . “they only come in when a friend drops dead on the golf course and they think ,’Geez,if it could happen to him ,……’ ” Then there’s the ostrich approach .”Some men are scared of what might be there and would rather not know ,” says Dr.Ross Cartmill. “most men get their cars serviced more regularly than they service their bodies ,” Garmill says .He believes most diseases that commonly affect men could be addressed by preventive check-ups. Regular check-us for men would inevitably lace strain on the public purse , Cartmill says . “but prevention is cheaper in the long run than having to treat the disease . Besides , the ultimate cost is far greater :it’s called premature death .” 73. Why does the author congratulate his male readers at the beginning of the passage ? A)They are more likely to survive serious diseases today B）Their average life span has been considerably extended C)They have lived long enough to read this article D)They are sure to enjoy a longer and happier life
74.What does the author state is the most important reason men die five years earlier on average than women ? A)Men drink and smoke much more than women B)Men don’t seek medical care as often as women C)Men aren’t as cautious as women in face of danger D)Men are more likely to suffer from fatal disease 75.Which of the following best completes the sentence “Geez ,if it could happen to him, ...”(line 2, para.8) A)it could happen to me ,too BI should avoid playing golf C)I should consider myself lucky D)it would be a big misfortune 76. What does Dr.Ross Cartmill mean by “the ostrich approach “(Line 1 ,Para 9) A)A casual attitude towards one’s health conditions B)A new therapy for certain psychological problems C)Refusal to get medical treatment for fear of the pain involved D)Unwillingness to find out about one’s disease because of fear 77.What does Cartmill say about regular check-ups for men ? A)They may increase public expense B)They will save money in the long run C)They may cause psychological strain s on men D)They will enable men to live as long as women Section C （每题 1 分，共 5 分） Directions: Reading the following text and choose the most suitable heading from A-AC for each paragragh. There is one extra heading which you do not need. A. B. C. D. E. F. Advances in transport lead to trade increase Birth of Transport-related Industries and Trade Role of Transport in Trade Development Another Means to Develop Trade Higher Living Standard Modern Life Needs Modern Traffics
78.____________ Transport is one of the aids to trade. By moving goods from places where they are plentiful to places where they are scarce， transport adds to their value. The more easily goods can be brought over the distance that separates producer and consumer， the better for trade. When there were no railways， no good roads，no canals， and only small sailing ships，trade was on a small scale. 79.____________
The great advances made in transport during the last two hundred years were accompanied by a big increase in trade. Bigger and faster ships enabled a trade in meat to develop between Britain and New Zealand， for instance. Quicker transport makes possible mass-production and big business， drawing supplies from， and selling goods to， parts of the globe. Big factories could all not exist without transport to carry the large number of workers they need to and from their homes. Big city stores could not have developed unless customers could travel easily from the suburbs and goods delivered to their homes. Big cities could not survive unless food could be brought from a distance. 80. _____________ Transport also prevents waste. Much of the fish landed at the ports would be wasted if it could not be taken quickly to inland towns. Transport has given us a much greater variety of foods and goods since we no longer have to live on what is produced locally. Foods which at one time could be obtained only during a part of the year can now be obtained all through the year. Transport has raised the standard of living. 81._____________ By moving fuel，raw materials， and even power，as， for example，through electric cables， transport has led to the establishment of industries and trade in areas where they would have been impossible before. Districts and countries can concentrate on making things which they can do better and more cheaply than others and can then exchange them with one another. The cheaper and quicker transport becomes，the longer the distance over which goods can profitably be carried. Countries with poor transport have a lower standard of living. 82.____________ Commerce requires not only the moving of goods and people but also the carrying of messages and information. Means of communication ， like telephones ， cables and radio， send information about prices，supplies， and changing conditions in different parts of the world. In this way， advanced communication systems also help to develop trade. IV.
