  Part Ⅱ

  Reading Comprehension (35 minutes)

  Passage One

  Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage:

  Professor Kumar Bhatt, founder and head of Warwick Manufacturing Group(WMG), and Rob Meakin, a personnel director at Marconi, have developed a partnership to train engineers and managers to BEComee-literate. The New Knowledge Partnership will include a team of 40 Marconi managers in what Professor Bhatt calls electronic engineering management or E2. A wide range of engineering and non-engineering companies has expressed interest in these exciting programs.Professor Bhatt believes that e-commerce is changing the business environment to a huge extent. Many chief executives do not understand the power of the new technologies and, in some cases, are actually resisting change. He says that “As long as enough industry leaders realize its potential benefits, e-business will make possible a second productivity revolution in Britain. This could take the economy close to eliminating the still substantial competitiveness gap with its main rivals. Over the last five years in the US there has been a 30% improvement in manufacturing sector productivity because of information technology. In Britain we can achieve more than that and successful e-business will be worth billions to the UK economy.”Already Britain makes more use of computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) and management information technology systems than other European countries, and has a government that actively promotes e-business. But, observes Professor Bhatt, Britain has never used technology as a growth driver. “The thing about electronic engineering management is that you can keep your legacy systems; you just need to link those systems with an information engine. At the touch of a button it will allow project managers to see the status of a project, identify problems precisely and make virtually immediate decisions based on information that will be much more complete than in the past.”

  The E2 program is the result of an alliance by the Warwick Manufacturing Group with America’s leading e-commerce study center,Carnegie Mellon. The latter will be responsible for training many of the Marconi managers in America, where the group has half its business. In Britain, Professor Bhatt has linked up with Sun Microsystems, Oracle and Parametric Technology, to set up amulti-million pound E2 design and manufacturing center at theuniversity which will be used for training and research.Professor Bhatt believes that e-commerce is changing business tosuch an extent that WMG is likely to be renamed Warwick ElectronicManufacturing Group. But, he warns “The move to globalize because ofe-commerce is racing ahead. Although the net allows British industryto overtake their European peers, it also offers Asian countries toleapfrog(相互超越) the West. For the first time it is not the privilegeof the western world because this technology is universal.”

  Passage Two

  Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage:

  Emotional maturity means knowing that another person cannot fill up the hole in your heart. That is your responsibility. You need to love and affirm yourself day-by-day, moment-by-moment. That is the spiritual challenge of your life and everybody’s life. Without your love for yourself, nothing works. No amount of love from your partner is enough. The search for love from other people is like the alcoholic’s search for happiness in a bottle. The more he drinks, the less satisfied he feels and the more he wants to drink.

  We are all addicted to falling in love. But after we’ve “fallen” a few times and broken our emotional bones, we hopefully wise up a bit. We know that the high of falling in love is not going to last. We know that sooner or later we will have to get real with each other. That is the difference between romance and partnership. Romance is an attempt to keep the addiction going. It has a very short half-life. Partnership is the dance of two ordinary people learning to live together day by day. It is a very challenging school that we enroll in. It is sometimes a lot more work than play. And it certainly requires a lot more psychological adjustment than years of therapy! We don’t just graduate from this school in a year or two. It takes many years, perhaps even a lifetime, for us to master the curriculum. Your partners are imperfect human beings, just like you. They were not the “wrong” partners any more than you were. Probably, they reflected your own level of realism and emotional maturity. That’s usually the way it works. So don’t waste your time thinking you simply made some bad choices. The only bad choice you made was forgetting who has the full time job loving you. I know that you know who this is !

  We keep remembering that they are not perfect, nor we are. Love is not a game of perfection. It is a game of overwhelming imperfection.The amazing thing is that love survives all of our mistaken attempts to control our partners and our relationships.

  26.We can conclude from the passage that___.

  A) we won’t forget who has the full time loving us

  B) love is addictive

  C) love from your partner is not enough

  D) love lies in the maturity of emotion which is essential to a partnership or relationship

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

  A) To seek for true love, one must be realistic.

  B) As long as we are emotionally mature, we can always enjoy the high of falling in love.

  C) Love doesn’t die even if we make wrong attempts to control our partners.

  D) The more one is loved, the less satisfied he or she feels.

  28.It can be inferred from the passage that___.

  A) the more we try to control our partners and relationships, the better we can enjoy love

  B) the more frequently we fall in love, the more intelligent we’ll be

  C) the more emotionally mature a couple are, the more harmonious they will live

  D) it’s unrealistic for you to search for true love from others

  29.By saying “They were not the ‘wrong’ partners any more than you were.”(Para 3), the author means ___.

  A) you chose the wrong partner just as your partner did

  B) your partner was not as good as you were

  C) you were good partners to each other

  D) neither of you is a good partner

  30.Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?

  A) Some people regret their choices of love partners.

  B) In some partnership or relationship, he or she tries to control the other.

  C) Through psychological adjustment and therapy, one will feel satisfied with love.

  D) Partnership is a school from which it is not easy for us to graduate.

  Passage Three

  Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage:

  What is terrorism?

  In a growing number of conflicts around the world, one or both sides attempt to label the other as “terrorist” in an effort to win support for their own causes. Yet as the so-called “terrorists group” often proclaim, a clear distinction between a terrorist action and a non-terrorist military operation is frequently difficult to establish. Most governments argue that terrorism is defined by violent methods to achieve political ends which are undertaken by organizations not recognized by the world community as legitimate representatives of a nation; furthermore, random acts of violence, like attacks on school buses or shopping centers, are labeled as “terrorist”. Political organization as the IRA(Irish

  Republican Army) and the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) have been dubbed(称为) “terrorists”, by the governments of England and Israel because of their tactics and their non-official statuses as representatives of accurately defined nations. In the case of the PLO, however, its election to power under Yasser Arafat has now confused its former recognition as terrorist. Even the IRA is earning status as an authentic opposition voice to the continued presence of British troops on Irish soil.All this simply highlights the problems of separating what is a legitimate political organization with “the right” to employ violence to achieve political ends from so-called terrorist groups. Inseparable from this issue is historical precedence(地位先后) and the degree of power and prestige an organization or nation has on the world stage. For example, while most independent observes would agree that the IRA setting off a bomb in a London subway station confirms its notoriety, they would be less certain that Israel’s recent bombing of a refugee camp is equally “terrorist”, despite the fact that many more innocent people were killed and injured in the latter incident than in the former. This raises the question, though certainly not for the first time, whether legitimate, even democratically elected, governments are also capable of terrorist action. Is there always a clear moral distinction between the behavior of normally respected nations and that of “rogue”(流氓) organizations? What does seem clear from these reflections is not that terrorist actions are in any way justified, but that the use of such labels is sometimes based on a political need rather than on superior moral or ethical grounds.

  31.What is the point the article tries to make?

  A) Non-official status of a political organization involves terrorist suspicion.

  B) Terrorism defies clear-cut distinction.

  C) Terrorist element exists in every violent conflict.

  D) Government actions are never guilty of terrorism.

  32.Which of the following could be concluded from the article?

  A)An indisputable example of a terrorist group is PLO.

  B)Actions to achieve political ends cannot avoid using force.

  C)An acceptable criterion for terrorism is killing civilians.

  D)International prestige is a justification for violence.

  33.The classification of PLO is now less clear because___.

  A) it begins to show friendly attitude towards Israel

  B) it stands for an independent state in the Middle East

  C) it is no longer engaged in random performance of violence

  D) it is the elected political representative of the Palestine

  34.It could be logically inferred from the article that____.

  A) terrorism is not being defined on ethical criteria

  B) defense actions committed on a foreign land is admissible

  C) terrorism unavoidably involves immoral policies

  D) democratic nations are innocent of terrorism

  35.The author wrote this article to ___.

  A) show sympathy to unrecognized national forces

  B) condemn political motives in defining terrorism

  C) justify the ambiguity in giving terrorism labels

  D) call for better approaches to terrorism

  Passage Four

  Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage:

  It is curious how much one despises and condemns the vices which one does not happen to possess. I am indeed not a severe man, nor would I permit myself to become intolerant of those failings which I share with others. But, having no particular temptation to be untruthful, I find myself believing that when one comes to think of it, truth is the major virtue and lying the most blameworthy of all the vices.I should like, therefore, to get my mind a little clearer on the truth question. I flatter myself, as I have said, that I am a truthful man: a man who, when he tells a lie, is careful not to forget that he has done so, and who takes infinite precautions to prevent his being found out. This, in the end, is the only test by which you can distinguish the liar from the man of truth. The latter which is bothered by untruthfulness, is worried and anxious. The real liar, however, is merely amused: he doesn’t mind in the least even if he is subsequently exposed: he regards the truthful man as somewhat of a fool.

  But this surely is one of the many false statements with which the real liar will try hard to idealize his failing. It may be inevitabe and even just to tell lies, but it cannot seriously be argued that such habits are intelligent. A lie is always an act of mental cowardice, whereas intelligence is brave. And yet there was Bismarck, and yet there was Napoleon-surely intelligent man, and surely liars. The problem, therefore, is not so simple as it seems. It was simple enough, in those old days, to define with approximate accuracy when a given statement ceased to be the truth and became a lie. The essential test was whether the maker of a false statement knew that he was saying something false, and consciously wished his audience to accept, and to remain under, this false impression. Life in civilized communities is a process of adjusting the personal to the social, of conforming the individual impression to the joint impressions of the common people. This process of adjustment leads inevitably and rightly to a certain unconscious deception. Absolute truth, whether unconscious or even conscious, is thus impossible. It is to relative truth only that we can hope to aspire.

  36.The author suggests that it is usual that___.

  A) a person shows strong disapproval of the vices an individual doesn’t have

  B) everyone feels contempt for the vices that most people have

  C) most people are unlikely to condemn the vices they possess

  D) the vices one doesn’t possess are worthy of severe condemnation

  37.The author claims that___.

  A) he wouldn’t tolerate the vices that people have in common

  B) he doesn’t feel particular contempt for being untruthful

  C) one may be tempted to untruthfulness when one comes to think of it

  D) untruthfulness is a serious fault of character which he condemns strongly

  38.The essential distinction between a truthful person and a liar lies in the fact that ___.

  A) the former feels uneasy about the untruths he happens to tell

  B) the latter takes great care to hinder his untruths from being exposed

  C) the former is willing to confess his untruthfulness when he tells a lie

  D) the latter is only amazed if his untruths area disclosed

  39.It is true,according to the text,real liars will___.

  A) try hard to perfect their vices with false statements

  B) believe it unavoidable and reasonable for everyone to tell lies

  C) argue that their habits of telling lies are intelligent rather than foolish

  D) are misunderstood as being either cowardly or brave individuals

  40.In the author’s opinion,___.

  A) bismarck and Napoleon were intelligent men of truth

  B) in modern society, nobody can escape the risk of making a false statement, intentionally or unintentionally

  C) untruthful man is worried about being found out

  D) our civilized life makes conscious lies impossible

  Part Ⅴ

  写作指导:

  这是一篇要求考生就经济发展和道德堕落这一社会现实进行论述的议论文. 全文分三个部分. 第一段是引言: 引入主题和主题句.第二段是正文部分: 指出道德堕落的社会现实现象. 第三段结论部分: 总结全文, 提出解决问题的办法。

  参考范文:

  Economic Development and Moral Decline These years, the economy in China is advancing by leaps and bounds.With this swift development, people’s life is better off and they get much more money to spend. But it’s human nature that they want to get even more. Money worship is sweeping across the whole country. With the popular misconception that money is everything, many immoral social phenomena have emerged. One of them is moral decline.

  Leaving the theft, robbery aside, corrupt conducts are getting more rampant. For instance, offering and taking bribes is becoming increasingly a social malady in the privileged class. For businessmen, they have a different morality which permits them to willfully produce ineffective or even dangerous products, advertise their products dishonestly. For some richest persons, they get confused about their life. They are occupied with nothing all day long and don’t know how to make themselves more satisfied, as a result they take drugs, among many other unlawful practices, to seek fun. They have money, but they have lost their aim in life and can’t find happiness.

  Am I suggesting that we should discard all the money and go back to the “poor days”? No! the wheel of history can’t be stopped. But if moral decline is the inevitable product of the economic development, we can certainly lay down some effective laws to stop the degeneration. If so, a bright and healthy future is sure to come and stay with us!
