Part Two Reading Comprehension


  In this part there are four passages followed by questions or unfinished statements, each with four suggested answers. Choose the one that you think is the best answer. Mark your answer on the ANSWER SHEET by drawing with a pencil a short bar across the corresponding letter in the brackets.

  Questions 11—15 are based on the following passage:

  Some psychologists maintain that mental acts such as thinking are not performed in the brain alone, but that one's muscles also participate. It may be said that we think with our muscles in somewhat the same way that we listen to music with our bodies.

  You surely are not surprised to be told that you usually listen to music not only with your ears but with your whole body. Few people can listen to music that is more or less familiar without moving their body or more specifically, some part of their body. Often when one listens to a symphonic concert on the radio, he is tempted to direct the orchestra even though he knows there is a competent conductor on the job.

  Strange as this behavior may be, there is a very good reason for it. One cannot derive all possible enjoyment from music unless he participates, so to speak, in its performance. The listener "feels" himself into the music with more or less noticeable motions of his body.

  The muscles of the body actually participate in the mental process of thinking in the same way, but this participation is less obvious because it is less noticeable.

  11. Some psychologists maintain that thinking is __________.

  A. not a mental process

  B. more of a physical process than a mental action

  C. a process that involves our entire bodies

  D. a process that involves the muscles as well as the brain

  答案D。本题考点在文章第一句中的mental acts such as thinking are not performed in the brain alone, but that one's muscles also participate。原文中的not…alone, but…相当于考题里的as well as, 所以考生对意思相似相近的表达要清楚。

  12. Few people are able to listen to familiar music without __________.

  A. moving some part of their body

  B. stopping what they are doing to listen

  C. directing the orchestra playing it

  D. wishing that they could conduct music properly

  答案A。本题的依据句是第二段中的第二个句子Few people can listen to music that is more or less familiar without moving their body or more specifically, some part of their body.

  13. Body movements are necessary in order for the listener to _____________.

  A. hear the music                   B. appreciate the music

  C. enjoy the music fully              D. completely understand the music

  答案C。本题依据关键在第三段第二句中的derive all possible enjoyment from music,这与试题中的enjoy the music fully意思相当。

  14.  According to the selection, muscle participation in the process of thinking is ______.

  A. deliberate                       B. obvious

  C. not readily apparent                D. very pronounced

  答案C。本题的依据是短文中的最后一句,关键部分是this participation is less obvious,这与选项C、 not readily apparent意思相当。

  15. The best title for this selection is ____________.

  A. An Ear for Music

  B. Music Appreciation

  C. How Muscles Participate in Mental Acts

  D. A Psychological Definition of the Thinking Process


  Questions 16—20 are based on the following passage:

  During the summer session there will be a revised schedule of services for the university community. Specific changes for intercampus bus services, summer hours for the cafeteria, the infirmary (校医院) and recreational and athletic facilities will be posted on the bulletin board outside of the cafeteria. Weekly movie and concert schedules which are in the process of being arranged will be posted each Wednesday outside of the cafeteria.

  Intercampus buses will leave the main hall every hour on the half hour and make all of the regular stops on their route around campus. The cafeteria will serve breakfast, lunch, and early dinner from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the week and from noon to 7 p.m. on weekends. The library will maintain regular hours during the week, but shorter hours on Saturdays and Sundays. The weekend hours are from noon to 7 p. m.

  All students who want to use the library borrowing services and recreational athletic, and entertainment facilities must have a valid summer identification card. This announcement will also appear in the next issue of the student newspaper.

  16. Which of the following is the main purpose of this announcement?

  A. To tell campus personnel of the new library services.

  B. To announce the new movies on campus this summer.

  C. To notify university people of important schedule changes.

  D. To remind the students to validate their identification cards.

  答案C。本文讲的是“暑期校区各项服务安排变更情况”,首句即主题句为During the summer session there will be a revised schedule of services for the university community.选项C符合题意。

  17. Specific schedule revisions for which of the following facilities are listed in this announcement?

  A. Athletic and recreational.         B. Food and transportation.

  C. Bookstore and post office.        D. Medical and audio-visual.

  答案B。本题属于细节题。要注意题干中的Specific schedule revisions,即“具体安排的修改”。第二段首句和第二句分别详细描述了公交车的发车时间、地点和食堂就餐时间,文中没有提到A. Athletic and recreational, C. Bookstore and post office和D. Medical and audio-visual.的具体情况。

  18. Times for movies and concerts are not listed in this announcement because ______________.

  A. film or concert occurs every Wednesday at 7 p. m.

  B. the full list would be too long

  C. films and concerts cannot be announced publicly

  D. the full list is not ready yet

  答案D。本题的依据是文章第一段第三句话。关键部分是Weekly movie and concert schedules which are in the process of being arranged,即“每周电影和音乐会计划还在安排当中”,故D为合理选项。

  19. According to the announcement which of the following is true of special summer hours for the library?

  A. It has them only on the weekends.

  B. It has them both weekdays and weekends.

  C. It has no special summer hours.

  D. The information is not available.

  答案A。根据题干中的special summer hours for the library可以缩小寻找答案的范围,只寻找与“图书馆”有关信息即可。答案依据在第二段的第三句,其中but shorter hours on Saturdays and Sundays是关键部分。but shorter hours 表示special,与平时不同; Saturdays and Sundays指的就是weekends。因此A为正确选项。

  20. According to the announcement, a validated identification card is required to __________.

  A. ride on intercampus buses

  B. read announcements in the cafeteria

  C. make use of the infirmary

  D. check books out of' the library





 Questions 21—25 are based on the following passage:

  The economy in the United States is heavily dependent on aluminum, a material widely used in the construction of buildings and in making such diverse things as cars, airplanes, and food containers. In 1979 Americans used over five million tons of new aluminum, and one and a half million tons of recycled aluminum. Some ninety percent of the bauxite (矾土) ore from which new aluminum is normally derived had to be imported to meet the demand. Poorer ores are abundant in the United States, however, and researchers at Purdue University may recently have found a way to obtain aluminum magnetically from these.

  Although aluminum is not attracted by ordinary magnets, under special conditions it becomes temporarily "paramagnetic", or very weakly responsive to a magnetic field. This is achieved by immersing ore particles in water to which certain salts have been added and then filtering the ore through steel wool in the presence of a strong magnetic field. It is hoped that this technique will reduce the amount of high-grade aluminum the United States must import.

  21. The passage focuses on _____________.

  A. construction and manufacturing industry in the United States

  B. new technique of obtaining aluminum from poor ores

  C. consumption and production of aluminum in the United States

  D. the annual import of high-grade aluminum into the United States

  答案C。本题考查的是对短文主旨大意的理解。首段说的是美国对铝的需求及其来源,第二段讲述了一种新的提取铝的方法。故C、 consumption and production of aluminum in the United States最符合题意,A、B、D虽然提到与短文有关的内容,但都不够全面。

  22. It is believed that a new technique to _________ will probably be found.

  A. recycle old aluminum products

  B. discover more bauxite ores

  C. make aluminum by putting ore particles under water

  D. take out aluminum magnetically from poorer ores

  答案D。本题的依据是第一段最后一句,关键部分是Poorer ores,have found a way to obtain aluminum magnetically。

  23. In the second paragraph the word "paramagnetic" means ___________.

  A. slightly magnetic

  B. a weak magnetic field

  C. a strong magnetic substance

  D. the under-water magnetic power

  答案A。这是个词汇题。解这种题需要先找到该词所在的句子,答案往往从中可以读出。Paramagnetic在第二段首句,句子后半部分的or very weakly responsive to a magnetic field就是解释,故选A. slightly magnetic。

  24. By immersing ore particles in water, ____________.

  A. we can get ore particles of equal size

  B. we can purify aluminum particles

  C. we can filter out aluminum

  D. we can improve the working conditions around

  答案C。本题的依据是最后一句It is hoped that this technique will reduce the amount of high-grade aluminum the United States must import.显然,把矿粒进入水中的做法目的只有一个,即提取铝。故选C。

  25. We understand from the passage that the United States ____________.

  A. is rich in low-grade aluminum-beating ores

  B. is short of aluminum-making techniques

  C. has to import ninety percent of its annual need of aluminum

  D. has to produce fifty percent of the world's supply to meet its annual aluminum demand

  答案A。这是一个细节题,答案依据是第一段第四句Poorer ores are abundant in the United States…

Part Three Cloze


  There are ten blanks in the following passage.  For each numbered blank, there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the best one and mark your answer on the ANSWER SHEET with a single line through the center.

  As the plane circled over the airport, everyone sensed that something was wrong. The plane was moving unsteadily through the air, and   31   the passengers had fastened their seat belts, they were suddenly thrown forward. At that moment, the air-hostess   32   . She looked very pale, but was quite   33   . Speaking quickly but almost in a whisper, she   34   everyone that the pilot had fainted and asked if any of the passengers knew anything about machines or at least how to drive a car. After a moment's   35   , a man got up and followed the hostess into the pilot's cabin.

  Moving the pilot aside, the man took his seat and listened carefully to the urgent instructions that were being sent by radio from the airport below.  The plane was now dangerously close  36  the ground, but to everyone's relief, it soon began to climb. The man had to  37   the airport several times in order to become   38   with the controls. Therefore the danger had not yet passed. The terrible   39   came when he had to land. Following information, the man guided the plane toward the airfield.  It shook violently   40   it touched the ground and then moved rapidly along the runway and after a long run it stopped safely.

  31. A. although      B. while        C. therefore      D. then

  答案A。仔细阅读上下文,就能看出“and   31   the passengers had fastened their seat belts, they were suddenly thrown forward.”两个句子是对比关系,意思为“尽管旅客系着安全带,但大家还是被抛向前面”。

  32. A. showed       B. presented     C. exposed       D. appeared

  答案D。A选项正确说法应该为“showed up”,B和C选项意思和用法不符合语境;只有D选项正确。Appear意为“出现”。

  33. A. well        B. still         C. calm         D. quiet

  答案C。应该注意but一词的意义在于引起一个相反的概念。“She looked very pale, but was quite   33  .”也就是说,所选择的单词应该是pale一词含义的反义词。所以用C选项最合适。全局意思为“尽管她脸色苍白,但她很镇静”。其他选项意思或用法有误。

  34. A. inquired      B. insured       C. informed       D. instructed


  35. A. hesitation     B. surprise      C. doubt         D. delay


  36. A. to          B. by          C. near          D. on

  答案A。close to属于固定搭配词组,意思为“接近”。其他选项的搭配不正确。

  37. A. surround     B. circle        C. observe        D. view


  38. A. intimate      B. familiar       C. understood     D. close


  39. A. moment      B. movement     C. idea          D. affair


  40. A. as          B. unless        C. while         D. so

  答案A。注意本处的意思为“当……时候”。A项as与C项while的意思都是“当……时候”,但while指一个较长的时间过程,而as指事情发生的一刻。由于飞机触地touch the ground是一个短暂性动作,此处应选择as。
