but his injured friend disappears.
When he returns, Marcus discovers that there are many "security measures" in place and that now

When an emergency situation occurs, observers are more likely to take action if there are few or no
other witnesses. This phenomenon is referred to as the bystander effect.
The bystander effect is also called the Genovese effect, which is named after Catherine “Kitty"
Genovese, a young woman who was cruelly murdered on March 13, 1964. Early in the morning,
28-year-old Genovese was returning home from work. As she approached her apartment entrance, she
was attacked and stabbed (刺) by a man later identified as Winston Moseley. Despite Genovese's
repeated cries for help, none of the dozen or so people in the nearby apartment building who heard her
cries called police for help. The attack first began at 3:20, but it was not until 3:50 that someone first
Many psychologists were set thinking by the incident, as well as most Americans. As the
conclusion, the bystander effect came out and later proved by a series of studies and experiments.
There are two major factors that contribute to the bystander effect. First, the presence of other
people creates a division of responsibility. Because there are other observers, individuals do not feel as
much pressure to take action, since the responsibility to take action is thought to be shared among all of
those present. The second reason is the need to behave in correct and socially acceptable ways. When
other observers fail to react, individuals often take this as a signal that a response is not needed or not
Other researchers have found that onlookers are less likely to take action if the situation is
ambiguous. In the case of Kitty Genovese, many of the 38 witnesses reported that they believed that
they were witnessing a "lovers' quarrel", and did not realize that the young woman was actually being
61. The bystander effect is also called the Genovese effect because

, according to the psychologists.
A. wait for sort of a signal
B. hesitate and estimate the risk of getting hurt
C. want to be sure it's appropriate to react D. wonder if the victim is worth helping
65. The article seems to suggest that, if there had been
observers, Genovese might not have
Five years ago, David Smith wore an expensive suit to work every day. "I was a clothes addict, "he
jokes." I used to carry a fresh suit to work with me so I could change if my clothes got wrinkled."
Today David wears casual clothes – khaki pants and sports shirt – to the office. He hardly ever wears a
necktie. "I'm working harder than ever," David says, "and I need to feel comfortable."
More and more companies are allowing their office workers to wear casual clothes to work. In the
United States, the change from formal to casual office wear has been gradual. In the early 1990s, many
companies allowed their employees to wear casual clothes on Friday, but only on Friday. This became
known as "dress-down Friday" or "casual Friday." "What started out as an extra one-day-a-week
benefit for employees has really become an everyday thing." said business consultant Maisly Jones.
Why have so many companies started allowing their employees to wear casual clothes? One
reason is that it's easier for a company to attract new employees if it has a casual dress code. "A lot of
young people don't want to dress up for work," says the owner of a software company, "so it's hard to
hire people if you have a conservative dress code." Another reason is that people seem happier and
more productive when they are wearing comfortable clothes. In a study conducted by Levi Strauss and
Company, 85 percent of employers said that they believe that casual dress improves employee morale (士气). Only 4 percent of employers said that casual dress has a negative effect on productivity.
Supporters of casual office wear also argue that a casual dress code helps them save money. "Suits are
expensive, if you have to wear one every day," one person said. "For the same amount of money, you
can buy a lot more casual clothes."
66. David Smith refers to himself as having been "a clothes addict," because
A. he often wore khaki pants and a sports shirt
B. he couldn't stand a clean appearance
C. he wanted his clothes to look neat all the time
D. he didn't want to spend much money on clothes
67. David Smith wears casual clothes now, because
A. they make him feel at ease when working
B. he cannot afford to buy expensive clothes
C. he looks handsome in casual clothes
D. he no longer works for any company
68. According to this passage, which of the following statements is FALSE?
A. Many employees don't like a conservative dress code.
B. Comfortable clothes make employees more productive.
C. A casual clothes code is welcomed by young employees.
D. All the employers in the U.S. are for casual office wear.
69. According to this passage, which of the following statements is TRUE?
A. Company workers started to dress down about twenty years ago.
B. Dress-down has become an everyday phenomenon since the early 1990s.
C. "Dress-down Friday" was first given as a favor from employers.
D. Many workers want to wear casual clothes to impress people.
70. In this passage, the following advantages of casual office wear are mentioned except
A. saving employees' money
B. making employees more attractive
C. improving employees' motivation
D. making employees happier
Chinese netizens who like to create and use cyber words such as "geilivable" might find a new
regulation very "ungeilivable". The new regulation by the General Administration of Press and
Publication last week banned the use of Chinglish words created by netizens for publishing in the
Chinese language. "Geilivable", combining the pinyin geili (giving strength) with the English suffix (后缀) for
adjectives, literally means "giving power" or "cool". Different suffixes and prefixes were then added to
the word. "Hengeilivable" means "very cool", and "ungeilivable" means "dull, not cool at all".
Cyber language is popular among Chinese netizens, who create Chinglish words to reflect
phenomenon in society. One example is "antizen", which refers to college graduates who earn a
meager salary and live in small rented apartments, like tiny and laborious ants.
David Tool, a professor with the Beijing International Studies University, said it's very interesting
to combine Chinese with English to create new words. "English is no longer mysterious to the Chinese
people. They can use the language in a flexible way according to their own experiences," Tool said.
At the announcement of the regulation by the General Administration of Press and Publication,
netizens expressed their concern.
"The administration is totally 'ungeilivable'," said a netizen named laoda1713. "I know other
netizens will shed tears with me... it is a good chance to enrich our language".
"Language is always developing," said a columnist, Wang Pei. "It needs to be updated to absorb
foreign culture and folk wisdom."
But an unnamed official with the administration said that, in fact, many senior staff from news
media who supported the regulation were worried that years later, the younger generation would forget
how to use formal Chinese expressions. The official also pointed out that the regulation was only for
formal publications in Chinese language, and it only banned Chinglish words in the publication.
71. The new regulation by the General Administration of Press and Publication may be aimed
A. simplifying the Chinese language
B. limiting the development of language
C. banning the use of Chinglish
D. making the netizens more serious
72. The underlined word meager in the third paragraph probably means
73. From this passage we can infer that
A. the Chinese people like their own language only
B. the English words are considered informal in China
C. nobody in China will support the new regulation
D. "geilivable" will be popular among Chinese netizens
74. Which may be the title of this passage?
A. New regulation is announced
B. Cyber words make language lively
C. Different views about cyber language
D. New phenomenon in China
75. On which column of China Daily can you find this passage?
第 II 卷 （共 35 分） 第四部分 写 第一节 任务型阅读（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） The good news: Your son or daughter has graduated from college. The potentially bad news: Due to job losses, the pressure of student loan debt or some other factors, he/she has to return home, living with you.
A recent survey has found that almost one-in-five grown children (aged 18-34) now live with their parents. And of those children, about a-third say they used to live independently elsewhere before returning home. The phenomenon has become known as “The Boomerang Generation” (回巢族).
Don’t worry. From a positive angle, you may find you can actually do a lot to keep harmony in the household and make this tricky time manageable, even beneficial for all involved. When your child comes back, he/she can be a source of social support. He/She can help out economically. And you really get a chance to establish a different relationship—as adults.
It’s important to know how long this kind of situation will last. This can be discussed with your family members, but it’s essential that everyone understands the arrangement. It’s also important to set a goal for your graduated child to help him/her find a suitable job.
Everyone should keep the household rules. College kids are used to doing what they want. So let your child know your expectations for household chores, overnight guests, noise and so on. You can list something that you can never accept.
It is absolutely OK for parents to charge rent. If a grown child is able to pay rent, he/she should be asked to pay some. This can also include electricity, water or other benefits he/she is enjoying. If you feel it uncomfortable to take money from your child, you can collect rent money and return it to him/her when he/she leaves, to help him/her in his/her new home.
Avoid falling into traditional parent-child roles. This is difficult, but parents should not do traditional things such as lending your grown child money or doing his/her laundry or cleaning any more. Your child has grown up; he/she is no longer a teenager.
At last, parents should not get overly involved in your child’s lives and personal relationships. Parents need to respect your child’s growing independence. Creating a dictatorship (独裁) doesn’t help him/her grow as a self-reliant individual.
A problem (77) ________
why your child comes back
(79) ________ to parents
Your child move back home after graduation, (76) ________ to live on his/her own.
? Job losses; ? Pressure of student loan debt; ? Other factors.
? Almost (78) ______ grown children now live with their parents.
? The phenomenon has become known as “The Boomerang Generation”.
Establish a deadline
? Let everyone understand the arrangement; ? Set a job-hunting (80) ______ for your child. ? Set (81) ________ for household chores, overnight guests,
Clarify house rules noise and so on;
? List things your child should never do.
? Ask your child to pay some rent; ? Collect rent money and (83) _________ it to your child when he/she leaves.
Avoid falling into old roles
? Don’t lend money to your child; ? Don’t do (84) ________ for him/her. ? Respect your child’s (85) _________ and independence.

One possible version:
TV’s influence on our daily life
As is known to all, TV has a great influence on people’s daily life, and without it our life would be dull.
By watching TV people can learn about the events happening thousands of miles away and enjoy a lot of
entertainments. It can also be used as an educational tool. This is especially beneficial to people who
have to sit in wheelchairs all day.
As the old saying goes, every coin has two sides. TV also has a bad influence on teenagers, both in
their thoughts and behavior. Nowadays TV programs contain more and more violence, which has a
negative impact on young people. This has led to lots of terrible accidents.
As far as I’m concerned, TV itself is not to blame but the society and people who tend to amuse
themselves in this way. The bad impact TV programs have on teenagers is attributed to not only the
programs themselves, but also to lack of parental control. We should let children watch television, but
there should be proper control and guidance.
