Part III Reading Comprehension
(50 minutes, 30 points)
Directions: There are 6 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 single line through the center.
Questions 36to 40 are based on the following passage.
In the USA 85% of the population over the age of 21 approve of the death penalty, in the many states which can take up to 20 minutes to kill, while others use gas or lethal injection.
The first of these was the case of Ruth Ellis who was hanged for shooting her lover in what was generally regarded as a crime of passion. The second was hanged for murders which it was later proved, had been committed by someone else.
The pro-hanging lobby (赞成极刑的活动集团) uses four main arguments to support its call for the reintroduction of capital punishment. First there is the deterrence theory, which argues that potential murderers would think twice before committing the act if they knew that they might die if they were caught. The armed bank robber might, likewise go back to being unarmed.
The other two arguments are more suspect. The idea of retribution demands that criminals should get what they deserve: if a murderer intentionally. set out to commit a crime, he should accept the consequences. Retribution, which is just another word for revenge, is supported by the religious doctrine of an eye for an eye and a tooth for tooth.
The arguments against the death penalty are largely humanitarian (人道主义的) . But there are also statistical reasons for opposing it: the deterrence Figures do not add up. In Britain, 1903 was the record year for executions and yet in l904 the number of murders actually rose. There was a similar occurrence in 1946 and 1947. If the deterrence theory were correct, the rate should have fallen.
The other reasons to oppose the death penalty are largely a matter of individual conscience and belief. One is that murder is murder and that the state has no more right to take a life than the individual. The other is that Christianity advises forgiveness, not revenge.
36. The passage is mainly about _______.
A) the argument in favor of the death penalty

Questions 41to 45 are based on the following passage.
Do you forget to turn off the lights and heaters when you go out of a room? In 2040 it will not matter. They will turn themselves off and on again when you return. You will choose the temperatures for each room. The lighting and the humidity. A sensor will detect the presence of a human (and, with luck, ignore the dog!) and turn the systems on and when the humans leave it will turn them off again.
The sensors will work through the central home computer. and they will do much more than just turn the fires and lights on and off for you . They will detect faulty electrical appliances, plugs or switches. isolate them so that they cannot harm anyone, and then warn you they need repair. They will detect fire and if you are out of the house the computer will call the fire brigade. it will also call the police should the sensors detect an intruder This will not be too difficult because the locks on the outside doors will be electronic. You will open them using your personal card- the one you use for shopping-maybe using a number known only to you.
Ii will be impossible to lose the key and. a housebreaker will have to tamper(拨弄) with the lock or with a window. It is not very difficult to make such tampering send a signal to the computer.
The computer will be more than a fireman-policeman-servant. It will be an entertainer, and most of your entertainment will come right into your home.

Questions 46 to 50 are based on the following Passage.
With the Switzerland-based Wrorl4 Wildlife Fund (WWF), China I Wildlife Fund (WWF), China is making a concerted and dedicated effort to save the end angered pandas. The results, officials here in Chengdu indicate, are mixed bur encouraging.
A clear disappointment is the failure to breed 1,andas in captivity, necessary if their decreasing numbers are to be replaced. Another failure has been the incapability to find a natural, readily available food to replace the arrow bamboo.
Despite these failures, success has come on two fronts. One achievement has been the physical rescue effort. Some pandas have been kept alive by, salting( 空投 ) the mountains with ions of cooked meat, which pandas well eat as a substitute for bamboo, and by the planting of new bamboo in isolated areas. Animals in some Sichuan areas have been rescued by local peasants and by even emergency treatment by animal doctors.
A second achievement is a massive fund-raising effort. Publicity about the panda is plight has resulted in a new $ 100000 emergency allocation by the WWF and independent fund drives both in China and abroad.
In spite of this support, there have been conflicts in the panda relief program. One important problem is the difficulty Peking is having balancing the recommendations of environmentalists with China is ambitious goal of agricultural and industrial modernization .
Wolong is but one example of this difficulty. This 494,000-aore preserve was declared a protected area in 1975. Yet 1800people ,mostly Tibetans, still live in the preserve, logging, trucks still roll down the narrow mountain roads , and blasting work still goes on at the site of a new 160000-kilowatt-hydroelectric plant Just six miles away.

Questions 51 to 55 are based on the following passage.
Revenge is one of those things that everyone enjoys. People don not like to talk about it, though. Just the same, there is nothing more satisfying or more rewarding than revenge. The purpose is not to harm your victims but to let them know that you are upset about something that they are doing to you ,Careful plotting can provide you with relief form bothersome coworkers, gossiping friends or nagging family member
Coworkers who make comments about the fact that you are always fifteen minutes late for work can be taken care of very simply. All you have to do is get up extra one day. Before the sun comes up, drive to each coworker is house. Reach under the hood of your coworker is car and disconnect the center wire that leads to the distributor cap, the car will be unharmed, but it will not start, and your friends at work will all be late for work on the same day. If you are lucky, your boss might notice that you are the only one there and will give you a raise.
Gossiping friends at school are also perfect targets for a simple act of revenge. A way to trap either male or female friends is to leave phony messages on their lockers. If the friend that you want to get is male, leave a message that a certain girl would like him to stop by her house later that day. With any luck her boyfriend will be there. The girl won not know what is going on, and the victim will be so embarrassed that he probably won not leave his home for a month.
When Mom and Dad and your sisters and brothers really begin to annoy you, harmless revenge may be just the way it make them quiet down for a while. The dinner table is a likely place. Just before the meal begins, throw a handful of raisins into the food. Wait about five minutes and, after everyone has begun to eat, cover your mouth with your hand and begin it make odd noises. When they ask you what the matter is, point to a raisin and yell. "Bugs!" They will dump their food in the disposal, jump into the car, and head for McDonald is. Thai night you will have your first quiet, peaceful meal in a long time.
A well-planned revenge does not have it hurt anyone. The object is simply it let other people know that they are beginning to bother you.

Questions 56 to 60 are based on the following passage.
Investment in the public sector, such as electricity, irrigation, public services and transport (excluding vehicles, ships and planes) increased by about 10% although the emphasis moved to the transport and away from the other sectors mentioned. Trade and services recorded a 16-17% investment growth, including a 30% increase in investment in business premises. Industrial investment is estimated to have risen by 8% . Although the share of agriculture in total gross investment in the economy continued to decline, investment grew by 9% in absolute terms, largely spurred on by a 23% expansion of investment in agricultural equipment. Housing construction had 12% more invested in it in 1964, not so mush owing, to increased demand, as to fears of new taxes and limitation of building.
Total consumption in real terms rose by close on 11% during 1064, and per capita personal consumption by under 7% as in 1963 . The undesirable trend towards a rapid rise in consumption, evident in previous years, remained unaltered. Since at current prices consumption rose by 16% and disposable income by 13% there was evidently a fall in the rate of saving in the private sector of the economy. Once again consumption patterns indicated a swift advance in the standard of living. Expenditure on food declined in significance, although consumption of fruit increased. Spending on furniture and household equipment, health education and recreation continued to increase. The greatest proof of altered living standards was the rapid expansion of expenditure on transport (including private cars) and personal services of all kinds, which occucred during 1964. The progressive wealth of large sectors of the public was demonstrated by the the changing composition of durable goods purchased. Saturation ( 饱和 ) point was rapidly, being approached for items such as the first household radio, gas cookers and electric refrigerators whereas increasing purchases of automobiles and television sets were registered .

60. The word "registered" in the last line most probably means _______.

Questions 61 to 65 are based on the following passage.
Anthropology is the study of human beings as creatures of society. It fastens its attention upon those physical characteristics and industrial techniques, those conventions and values, which distinguish one community from all others that belong to a different tradition.
The distinguishing mark of anthropology among the social sciences is that it includes for serious study other societies than our own. For its purposes any social regulation of mating and reproduction is as significant as our own though it may be that of the Sea Dyaks, and have no possible historical relation to that of our civilization. To the anthropologist our customs and those of a New Guinea tribe are two possible social schemes for dealing with a common problem, and in so far as he remains an anthropologist he is bound to avoid any weighting of one in favor of the other. He is interested in human behavior, not as it is shaped by one tradition, our own, but as it has been shaped by any tradition whatsoever. He is interested in a wide range of custom that is found in various cultures, and his object is to understand the way in which these cultures change and differentiate, the different forms through which they express themselves and the manner in which the customs of any peoples function in the lives of the individuals.
Now custom has not been commonly regarded as a su6Ject of any great moment. The inner workings of our own brains we feel to be uniquely worthy of investigation, but custom, we have a way of thinking, is behavior at its most commonplace. As a matter of fact, it is the other way round. Traditional custom is a mass of detailed behavior more astonishing than what any one person can ever evolve in individual actions. Yet that is a rather trivial aspect of the matter. The fact of first rate importance is the predominant role that custom plays in experience and belief, and the very great varieties it may manifest.
61. According to the passage, we can say that anthropology _______.
A) can reveal an enormous diversity of traditions.
B) can deal with human beings as one group of the creatures in the living world
C) can provide insights into the relationship between human beings and nature
D) can distinguish the human race from other creatures
62. For serious study, an anthropologist _______.
A) is obliged to work only on those societies which have no historical relationship to each other
B) must not study his own culture
C) is not supposed to have a prejudice against any society
D) should focus on those societies which are historically related to each other
63. Which of the following does the author most probably agree with .
A) The goal of the anthropologist is to understand the way in which people express themselves.
B) The anthropologist tries to understand why cultures are carried on without any change.
C) The anthropologist is professional interest is as wide as the variety of customs.
D) All of the above.
64. In the third paragraph, the author is trying _______.
A) to be critical of custom
B) to say that anthropology is more important than psychology
C) to strengthen the role custom plays in experience and belief
D) to draw our attention to the importance of custom
65. Which of the following is the best title for the passage.
A) The Science of Custom.
B) Creatures of Society.
C) Human Behavior.
l?) The Functions of Cultures.
