Part V. Reading Comprehension:

Passage One

Question 31- 35 are based on the following passage:

I was born in the city of York, in England, in the year 1632.  My father was a man of some wealth, able to give me a good home and send me to school. It was his wish that I should be a lawyer but my head began to be filled very early with thoughts of travel, and I would be satisfied with nothing but going to sea.  My father gave me strong advice against it, but with little effect.  One day, being at Hull, I met a school-fellow who was about to sail for London in his father’s ship, and he invited me to go with him, and without telling my father, I went on board.

  On the way to London, a storm arose, the ship was wreaked, and we barely escaped with our lives. I went on foot to London, where I met with the master of a vessel which did business with countries on the coast of Africa.  He took a fancy to me, and offered me a chance to go with him on his voyages, which I gladly accepted.

  A great storm came up. And the ship was tossed about for many days, until we did not know where we were.  Suddenly we struck a bank of sand, and the sea broke over the ship in such a way that we could not hope to have her hold many moments without breaking into pieces.  So we launched a boat.  After we had been driven four or five miles, a mountainous wave struck us so hard that it overturned the boat at once.  Though I swam well but the waves were so strong that I was dashed against a rock with such a force that it left me senseless.  But I recovered a little before the waves returned, and, running forward, got to the mainland safely.

 

31. What did the author want to do most when he was young?B

  A. To visit Africa

  B. To sail the seas.

  C. To practice law.

  D. To make a tour of London.

 

32. Why did the author go on foot to London?A

  A. The ship he took was destroyed in a storm.

  B. His father did not supply the fare for the journey.

  C. He went against his father’s strong advice not to do so.

  D. His school-fellow invited him to go together.

 

33. Why did they launch a boat? D

  A. They knew they were near the shore.

  B. The big waves were about to overturn the ship.

  C. Their ship had been knocked about for many days on the sea.

  D. Their ship had struck sand and was about to break into pieces.

 

34. When the author got to the mainland, he ___________.C

  A. searched everywhere for his lost companions

  B. fell down on the ground senseless

  C. was safe and sound

  D. ran forward to escape being washed back into the sea

  A. knew he was in Africa

  B. did not know where he was

  C. was not aware he was back in England.

  D. got in touch with his family and asked for help

Passage Two

Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage:

I worked as a manager in a company for a number of years. I liked my job, and was doing well there, but our company was bought by a larger company and most of the managers at our place lost their jobs. That was when I decided to do something I'd always wanted to do – become a freelance (自由撰稿的) writer. Changing professions (职业) has meant that my lifestyle has changed in a number of ways.

The main difference for me now is that I have a much more flexible (灵活的) schedule. I work about as much as I did before – between 45 and 50 hours a week – but my schedule is much less rigid than it used to be. Before, I worked from 8 to 5 every day, with a few extra hours on weekends. Now, however, I work when I feel like it. For instance, sometimes I work until midnight or 2 A.M., then sleep until noon. I really prefer this kind of schedule. It seems more natural to me.

I also decided that it was about time I began to pay more attention to my health. While I was working as a manager, I never exercised. I already felt tired after work, so I just came home in the evening and watched TV. However, last year I joined a health club and began to do regular exercise.

As a result I have lost over 10 pounds and I feel much better. I've also started to eat more healthfully. I used to eat a lot of fast food, but now I do my own shopping. I buy lots of fruits and vegetables and cook them at home.

Of course, not all the changes have been that easy. For example, I don't feel as secure financially as I used to. When I was working as a manager, I never worried much about money. I could always count on getting my paycheck every two weeks. Working freelance, I don't have a regular paycheck. So now I have to make sure there's enough money until the next check arrives.

All in all, I really like my current lifestyle. Of course, that doesn't mean I'll never want to have a "regular" job. But for now, at least, it suits me.

36. Why did the author decide to become a freelance writer?A

A.   He had always liked writing.

B.   He was dissatisfied with his company.

C.   He never liked his job as a manager.

A.   He works fewer hours a week.

B.   He does not have to work on weekends.

C.   He can change his schedule as he likes.

D.   He can work at night and sleep late.

38. Why does the author do his own cooking now?B

A.   He wants to lose weight.

B.   He has got lots of free time on his hands.

C.   He no longer feels tired after work.

D.   He wants to eat more healthfully.

39. What is his chief problem now?D

A.   He cannot count on his paycheck to arrive on time.

B.   He has no regular work to do.

C.   He has to find a publisher for his books.

D.   He has to worry about money.

40. At the end of the passage, the author indicates that ________.A

A.   he is going to find a regular job soon

B.   he is not going to change his lifestyle in the near future

C. he will continue to write for the rest of his life

Passage Three

Questions 41 to 45 are based on the following passage:

In 1920, after some thirty-nine years of problems with disease, high costs, and politics, the Panama Canal was officially opened, finally linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans by allowing ships to pass through the fifty-mile canal zone instead of traveling some seven thousand miles around Cape Horn. It takes a ship approximately 8 hours to complete the trip through the canal and costs an average of fifteen thousand dollars, one-tenth of what it would cost an average ship to round the Horn. More than fifteen thousand ships pass through its locks each year.

The French initiated the project but sold their rights to the United States. The latter will control it until the end of the twentieth century when Panama takes over its duties.

41. Who currently controls the Panama Canal? B

A. France                                     B. Panama  

C. the United States                    D. the Canal Zone

42. Which is NOT mentioned as one of the difficulties met during the building of the Panama Canal? C

A.   There were many disputes among politicians.

B. There was not enough fund for the project.

C. It took too much time to complete the canal.

D. A lot of workers were taken ill.

43. On the average, how much would it cost a ship to travel around Cape Horse? C

A. $1,500                                     B. $150,000      

C. $15,000                                          D. $1,500,000

44. In what year was construction probably begun on the canal? A

A. 1881                                           B. 1939

C. 1920                                           D. 1899

45. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? D

A.   The canal brought about new diseases to the canal zone.

B. Most of the workers came from France during the early stage of the project.

C. Before the canal was constructed, ships traveling from the Pacific to the Atlantic had to pay a lot more money to Panama government.

D. A different government will take control of the canal around 2000.

 

Passage Four

Questions 46 to 50 are based on the following passage:

There are two things I can count on my dad asking every time he calls me: "Is there anything I can do for you?" and "How's the car?" I guess he asks what he can do for me because his dad (an air force officer) was never really there for him, and he's determined to provide me with the support he lacked. During my youth he never missed a school play or softball game. In fact, he was so supportive that I sometimes longed for one of those dads who dressed better and cared less. But my dad would forever be the guy wearing shorts with dress shoes and black socks, cheering me on, expecting greatness.

His other standard question – "How's the car?" – used to strike me as a waste of long-distance dollars from a man who once suggested making a list of what you want to talk about before calling someone out of state. What I now realize is that "How's the car?" is not about the car. It's a father's way of asking his adult daughter how she is. The advantage is that if there's something wrong with the car, he knows what to do about it and how much it will cost, whereas if you're having marital problems or doubting a career choice, he might have to put Mom on the line.

At age 30 I finally took the plunge (突然一跳) into adulthood by leasing () a car without my dad's help or advice. I'm sure my dad was hurt rather than proud. Though a daughter's independence is evidence (证据) of a job well done, it still implies the job's done, and many fathers are reluctant to retire. Even when my dad was overworked, he'd happily hop on a plane if I said I needed help. His frequent question, "Is there anything I can do for you?" underlines the fact that he wishes there was still something he could provide. It's interesting: Even though we're tied by blood and I love him no matter what, he still seems to need a concrete function – suggesting stocks, finding the cheapest plane fare – to feel he has a role in my life.

46. Judging from the first paragraph, the author has a very ________.A

A.   supportive father

B.   rich father

C.   capable father

D.   careful father

47. The author now realizes that by asking "How is the car?", her father is actually ________.B

A.   wasting precious money

B.   asking how she's getting along

C.   expressing his concern for her safety

D.   showing how much he knows about cars

48. In case the author asked her father what she should do with her life, he would probably ________.A

A.   let her mother answer the question

B.   tell her his own experience in career choice

C.   let her make her own decision

D.   make a list of what to say to her

49. When the author leased a car without asking her father's advice, he was ________.B

A.   proud his daughter had finally achieved independence

B.   hurt because he had no more to do for her

C.   happy that he had got a job well done

D.   angry because his daughter no longer minded his advice

50. What does the author mean by saying "many fathers are reluctant to retire"?D

A.  They want to continue to work so they will have money to provide support for their daughters.

B. They are afraid they'll lose their daughters' love if they don't do something for them.

C.   They believe their daughters need their help in things such as fixing a car.

D.   They wish to keep playing some role in their daughters' lives.
