PART Ⅱ Reading Comprehension （50%）
Directions ：There are 4 passages in this part．Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished statements． For each them of them are for choices marked A , B, c and D. You should decide on the best choice and blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a pencil.
Questions 21 to 24 are based on the following passage ：
Americans like to do business without leaving their cars. You'll see drive-in banks，drive-in restaurants， drive-in churches and drive-in movies.
When driving in the U.S., it's a good idea to have an international river's license if you don't have a state license. Each of the fifty states has its own traffic laws。 Get information when you cross the border into a state at a tourist information center．
There is a national speed limit of 55 miles per hour. Americans are generally polite about letting cars enter busy streets. They usually stopfor people who are walking to let them cross the street. In many states you may turn right after stopping at a corner, even if there is a red light. On some roads there may be a minimum speed.
If you rent a car, ask the company what to do in case your car breaksdown. Some companies will ask you to call a special number. Others will want you to have the 'car repaired. They will partly deduct the cost of the repair from your bill.
Mileage'' can mean two things. It may mean the total number of miles a car has been driven. We say “This car only has 10, 000 miles on it; ithas low mileage.” On the other hand, “gas mileage” is the number of miles a car can travel on one U. S. gallon of gas. For example, a big car
hat gets 25 miles to the gallon gets very good mileage. A small economy car should get at least 35 miles to the gallon when it's new.

Questions 25 to 28 are based on the following passage ：
There are robots all around us， Some do very complicated jobs like flying airplanes and driving subway trains。 And some do a simple job.
When an automatic washing machine is switched on，water pours in. Themachine waits until the water is hot before washing the clothes. It does this by“feedback．”Information about What is happening is“feedback”into the robot to te11 it what to do next.
Our eyes， ears and other senses are our feedback． They tell us whatis going on around us. So robots are like people in two ways，They work and they have feedback.
There are robots all around， making our lives easier. Some of them，like the pocket calculator， can work much more quick1y than human beingscan. And they rarely make mistakes.
In some ways robots are better than people. They work quick1y， but do not make mistakes， They do not get bored doing the same job over andover again。 And they never get tired.
Robots are very useful in factories. They can be taught to do many different jobs． First their electronic brains must be shown how the job is done. A person moves the robot’s“arm” and“hand”through each part of the job． The robot’s brain remembers each move。 When the robot is put to work on its own， its brain controls the rods， wheels and motors which move its arm.
When the robot is needed for a new job， its electronic memory is“wiped clean.”Then it is taught how to do its new task.|
If the robot’s hand stops working， or if something gets in the way， it cannot do the next part of the job．So it stops and signals for help，Then a human engineer repairs it.
The most“intelligent”robots can move and see. Their eyes are cameras. Their metal fingers can feel shapes and even find out how hot and cold objects are. These robots have computer brains，linked to their eyes and fingers， which control their actions.

Questions 29 to 32 are based on the following passage：
Tests conducted at the University of Pennsylvania's Psycho1ical Laboratory showed that anger is one of the most difficult Emotions to find out from facial expressions. Professor Dallas E. Buzby confronted 716 students with pictures of extreme1y angry persons， and asked them to identify the emotion from the facial expression。 Only two percent made correct judgments. Anger was most frequently judged as“pleased”.
And a typical reaction of a student confronted with the picture of aman who was mad was to classify his expression as either ‘bewildered’，‘quizzical’，or simply‘amazed’．Other studies showed that it is extremely difficult to tell whether a man is angry or not just by looking at his face. The investigators found further that women are better at finding out anger from facia1 expressions than men are. Paradoxically，they found that psychological training does not improve one’s ability tojudge a man’s emotions by his expressions but actually hinders it． For in the university tests， the more courses the student had taken in psychology， the poorer judgment score he turned in.
29．The information in this passage centers around___________.
A. the re1ation between anger and other emotions
B. the differences between men and women with respect to emotion
C. the influence of psychology on human emotions
D. the discovery of anger from facial expressions
30．when tested， students with psychological training_________.
A. marked less than two percent of their possible choices correctly
B. did better than the average student in the group
C. seemed less able to judge correctly than the average student

31．To achieve the greatest success in finding out anger from facial expressions，it would be best to__________.
A. use adults rather than students as judges
B. ask women who do not study psychology to judge it
C. ask men rather than women to judge it
D. be satisfied with a two percent success，if such a percentage is guaranteed
32．The last two sentences in the second paragraph show that__________.
A. such training has not resulted in better scores
B. we have really achieved the anticipated results
C. the judgment is similar to what we have expected
D.we can expect such training to have the effect stated
Questions 33 to 36 are based on the following passage：
Wouldn't it be great if you could just look up at the sky and read the weather forecast right away？
Well, you Can. The forecast is written in c1ouds. If you can read that writing，you can tell something about the atmosphere. With some practice， you can become a pretty good weather forecaster．Who knows，you might even do as well as meteorologists.
Meteorologists use much more information than just the appearance of the clouds to make their forecast．They collect data from all over the world． Then they put it into powerful，high-speed computers.
This does give meteorologists an advantage，because they can track weather patterns as they move from west to east across the country.
But you have an advantage，too.You can look at the sky and get your data directly．A meteorologist uses a computer forecast that’s several hours old to make a 1ocal forecast.
What are you seeing when you look at a cloud？”A picture of what moisture is doing in the atmosphere,” says meteorologist Peter Leavit ． There’s moisture throughout the atmosphere. Most of the time you don't see it，because it's in the form of an invisible gas called water vapor.
Sometimes，the temperature of the air gets cold enough to cause the water vapor to change to liquid water．That’s called condensation， and we see it happen all the time (for example，when humid air from the shower hits the cold glass of a mirror). When enough water vapor condenses，droplets form in the air.These droplets scatter light．A cloud is seen.
Watching c1ouds over a day or two tells you a lot more than a sing1e cloud about the weather to come， Changes in clouds show changes in the atmosphere.
You should begin to notice patterns. Certain clouds， fol1owing each other in order， can signal an approaching storm. But don’t take our word for it； see for yourself.
33．This passage main1y tells us about how__________.
A. to become a meteorologist
B. to keep an eye on the weather
C. to be an assistant to a meteorologist
D. to change water vapor to liquid water
34．According to the passage，an ordinary person might do as well as a meteorologist in weather forecast_____________.
A. with the help of the high-speed computers
B. through a complex process of calculation
C. with some simple practice looking up at the sky
D. consulting a weather station
35．Meteorologists make their weather forecast__________.
A. by collecting data from all over the world
B. by putting this date into powerfu1， high，speed computer
C. by ca1culating and ana1yzirig this data
D. all above
36.Your advantage in weather forecasts is that____________.
A. you have more powerful computers at home
B. your brain works as well as a high-speed computer
C. you observe the sky and obtain your data directly
D. meteorologists give their data to you as soon as they get them
Questions 37 to 40 are based on the following passage：
Security and commodity exchanges are trading posts where people meet who wish to buy or sell． The exchanges themselves do no trading；they merely provide a place where prospective buyers and sellers can meet and conduct their business.
Wall Street， although the best known， is not the only home of exchanges in the United States. There are cotton exchanges in New Orleans and Chicago； the Mercantile Exchange， which deals in many farm products， in Chicago； and grain exchanges in many of the large cities of the Midwest. home exchanges， like the Chicago Board of Trade， provide market services for several kinds of products. These tradingposts where products may be bought or sold are called commodity exchanges.
The security exchanges， on the other hand, are meeting places where stocks and bonds are traded． Like the commodity exchanges ， they help serve the economic life of t he country. But when their operations get out of hand， they may become very dangerous．In l929， the security exchanges，or stock market， contributed to a crash a sudden， sharp decline in the value of securities. Many people lost fortunes；many corporations were bankrupted； many workers lost their jobs. The Crash of l929 has been attributed to many causes， among them wild and unwise speculation by many people and dishonest practices on the part of some businessmen and of some members of the exchanges.
Today，however，investing through security exchanges and trading on commodity exchanges has been made safer by regulations set up by the exchanges themselves and by regulations of the United States government， In l922，the government instituted the Commodity Exchange Commission which operated through the Department of Agriculture； and in l934，the Securities and Exchanges Commission， to protect investors and the public against dishonest practices on the exchanges.
37．Security and commodity exchanges are meeting places for buyers and sellers of__________.
D. all of these

A. the Securities and Exchange Commissio
B. the Commodity Exchange Commission
C. Chicago Board of Trade
D. Chicago Mercantile Exchang
40．Implies but not stated :______________.
A. Some exchanges provide market services for several kinds of products
B. The role of the government has been an important factor in curbing dishonest practices on the exchanges
C. Investing in securities is unwise
D. Buying and selling securities is dishonest
Directions：Read the following passage and then give short answers to the five questions． Write your answers on the Answer Sheet.
Hunting was origina11yameans of providing food， but it has now become a sport. Though in so－me parts of the world there are stil1 people who hunt wild animals to provide them selves with food， in England, hunting is as much a social activity as anything else.
A great many years ago， fishermen in Japan used birds to catch fish． This art of fishing is said to be at least a thousand years old and is mentioned in Japanese plays. Today， however， fishing in this way has simply become a sport，for the fisher men are not serious1y interested in catching fish.
On summer nights the fishing boats set out on rivers in various parts of the country， At the front of each boat there is an iron basket in which a wood fire is kept burning， As the graceful curved boats float past carried along by the current， these fires， dotted here and there， make bright patterns on the water. Steering down the river，the fishermen beat the sides of the boat to encourage the birds， and people out for an evening's entertainment either sit or lie on the floor of the boats drinking beer and sometimes even cooking a meal for themselves over the flames of the fire， This method of fishing demands great skill， for the fisherman has to handle three or four birds in one hand． A long piece of string is tied round the neck of each bird and the fisherman must take care to keep the birds separate from each other. Every so often， the birds are set free and they fly close to the water in search of fish． The moment a bird catches a fish in its beak it is pulled back on to the boat． The siring is held itght1y round the bird's throat to prevent it from swallowing the fish it has caught． When there do not seem to be many fish in the river， the fishermen can sometimes be seen secret1y throwing dead fish into the water for the birds to catch． No one really objects to this practice， as it is all part of this unusual sport.
41． What was the original purpose of hunting？
42. In which season of the year do the fishing boats set out？
43． What do the fishermen do to encourage the birds？
44. What is tied round the neck of each bird？
45．What does the fisherman do after the bird catches a fish？
