Part IV Reading Comprehension

Passage One
Questions 61 to 65 are based on the following passage:

In many countries there is a fixed charge for personal services. A certain percentage may be added to the bill at a hotel or restaurant “for the service”. In other places the customer may be ex?pected to give a tip, or a small amount of money, as a sign of appreciation whenever services are performed. In the United States there is no consistent practice with regard to tipping. The practice is more common in a large city than in a small town. A Native American may often be in doubt about when and how much to tip when he is in a city that is strange to him. In general, however, a tip is expected by the porter who carries you baggage, by taxi drivers (except, per?haps, in small towns), and by those who serve you in hotels and restaurants.

When you pick up your incoming luggage at an airport, you may tip the man who takes it to the taxi or airport bus. He usually expects 35 cents a bag for his service. In some cities the taxi that takes you to your hotel may have one meter that shows the cost of the trip and another that shows a fixed charge, usually about 20 cents, for “extra”. In some cities the taxi driver may ex?pect a tip in addition to the “extra”, especially if he carries your suitcase. If no “extra” is charged, a tip is usually given. Hotels usually do not have a service charge, though there are places where one is added. It is customary, however, to give something to the porter who carries your suitcases and shows you to your room. If in doubt, 25 cents for each bag he carries is satis?factory. In a restaurant you generally leave about 15 percent of the bill in small change on the table as a tip for the person who has served you. A service charge is generally not included except in some of the larger, more expensive places. If the order is small—a cup of coffee at a lunch counter, or something of the sort—a tip is not usually expected.

61. According to the passage, a tip is _______ for personal services.
A、a sign of appreciation
B、a fixed charge
C、the bill at a hotel or restaurant
D、an extra
62. A Native American _______.

D、room service
64. If a porter carries three pieces of baggage for you, you are expected to give him _______ as a tip.
A、50 cents
B、1 dollar
C、1.5 dollars
D、5 dollars
65. We can learn from the passage that_______.
A、all American taxi drivers are expected to be tipped
B、people in small towns know more about tipping
C、one has to tip a waiter no matter how small the order is
D、people sometimes do not tip when they are not satisfied

Passage Two
Questions 66 to 70 are based on the following passage:

People are fascinated by robots. Some of them look like mechanical dolls to play with. Most of them look like other machines of today’s technology.

One of the advantages of robots is that they can work in situations that are dangerous or harmful for human workers. For example, the continuous smell of paint has a harmful effect on painters, but it doesn’t bother a robot. Robots can work in nuclear power plants and in undersea research stations that might be dangerous for humans.

There are robots in the plastics industry and in chemical industry and industrial equipment industries. One of the most common uses of robots is in automobile factories. They can do the heavy, unpleasant, or dangerous work. For example, a computer programmer writes a program that tells how much paint to use, how thick it must be, and the size of the car body. The robot does not waste any time or movements. It never becomes bored. It doesn't need a coffee break. It lasts 20 to 25 years.

Today’s robots are simple-minded compared with the ones of the future. Researchers are now working on the sixth generation. These new robots will be able to take information from the environment. They will be able to see, using television camera for eyes. They will be able to touch and hear. Some computers can already understand a limited vocabulary. Researchers are trying to develop ones that can understand human speech. They will be able to understand voice commands and then respond.

The new robots will be able to move in more ways. They will have several arms, each will several fingers. The robot will be able to operate these arms and fingers by itself. It will be able to make complex decisions in a working environment.

66. Which of the following is an advantage of robots over human beings?
A、Robots can be used to entertain people.
B、Human beings do not smell harmful paints.
C、Robots are not affected by harmful substances.
D、Human beings cannot work undersea.
67. Where are robots most widely used in place of human workers?
A、In a car factory.
B、In a software company.
C、In a shoe factory.
D、In a big office.
68. Which of the following is true about future robots?
A、They may be able to control human beings.
B、They may be able to communicate with human beings.
C、They will be more simple-minded than today’s robots.
D、They will be able to write computer programs.
69. What does the phrase "a limited vocabulary" in Line 4, Paragraph 4, mean?
A、A fairly large number of words.
B、A small number of words.
C、Much of human speech.
D、The basic structure of speech.
70. What can we conclude from the passage about the new robots?
A、They will behave more like humans.
B、They will move faster than humans.
C、They will be able to think like humans.
D、They will be more intelligent than humans.

Passage Three
Questions 71 to 75 are based on the following passage:

In some urban centers, workaholism is so common that people do not consider it unusual. They accept the lifestyle as normal. Government workers in Washington D. C., for example, fre?quently work sixty to seventy hours a week. They don’t do this because they have to; they do it because they want to.

Workaholism can be a serious problem. Because true workaholics would rather work than do anything else, they probably don’t know how to relax; that is, they might not enjoy movies, sports, or other types of entertainment. Most of all, they hate to sit and do nothing. The lives of workaholics are usually stressful, and this tension and worry can cause health problems such as heart attacks or stomach disorders. In addition, typical workaholics don’t pay much attention to their families. They spend little time with their children, and their marriages may end in divorce.

Is workaholism always dangerous? Perhaps not. There are, certainly, people who work well under stress. Some studies show that many workaholics have great energy and interest in life. Their work is so pleasurable that they are actually very happy. For most workaholics, work and entertainment are the same thing. Their jobs provide them with a challenge; this keeps them busy and creative.

Why do workaholics enjoy their jobs so much? There are several advantages to work. Of course, it provides people with paychecks, and this is important. But it offers more than financial security. It provides people with self-confidence; they have a feeling of satisfaction when they've produced a challenging piece of work and are able to say, “I made that.” Psychologists claim that work gives people an identity, through participation in work, they get a sense of self and individ?ualism. In addition, most jobs provide people with a socially acceptable way to meet others.

71. A workaholic is a person who _______.
A、often behaves in a strange way
B、is often forced to work overtime
C、tend to enjoy working long hours
D、tends to hold higher positions than others
72. The life of a typical workaholic can be described as _______.
A、relaxed
B、healthy
C、serious
D、tense
73. Workaholics regard work as all of the following EXCEPT _______?
A、a source of happiness
B、a kind of entertainment
C、a kind of challenge
D、a source of energy
74. The word “identity” in Line 5, Paragraph 4, is closest in meaning to _______?
A、what makes a person feel confident
B、what makes a person different from others
C、what makes a person feel satisfied
D、what makes a person socially acceptable
75. The last paragraph tells us mainly about _______.
A、the positive side of workaholism
B、psychological problems of workaholism
C、the emotional challenge workaholics face
D、social disapproval of workaholism

Part V Translation from English into Chinese

Directions: In this part there is a passage with 5 underlined sections, numbered 76 to 80. After reading the passage carefully, translate the underlined sections into Chinese. Remember to write your translation on the Translation Sheet.

Americans’ interest in spectator sports seems excessive and even obsessive to many foreign visitors. (76) Not all Americans are interested in sports, of course, but many are. And some seem interested in little else. Television networks spend millions of dollars arranging telecast sports events, and are constantly searching for new ways (for example, using computer graphics and hiring glamorous announcers and commentators) to make their coverage more appealing. Publications about sports sell widely. In the United States, professional athletes can become na?tional heroes. (77) Some sports stars have become more widely recognized than any national lead?er other than the president. Some of them earn annual salaries in the millions of dollars.

(78) Nowhere else in the world are sports associated with colleges and universities in the way they are in the States. College sports, especially football, are conducted in an atmosphere of in?tense excitement. Games between teams classified as “major football powers” attract nationwide television audiences that number in the millions. There is a whole industry built on the manufac?ture and sale of badges, pennants, T-shirts, blankets, hats, and countless other items. Football and basketball coaches at major universities are paid higher salaries than the presidents of their in?stitutions. Athletic department budgets are in the millions of dollars.

Black Americans are heavily overrepresented in the sports of baseball, football, and basket?ball. While blacks comprise about 12 per cent of the country's total population, they make up well over half of most college and professional football and basketball teams. (79) It is not unusu?al to see a basketball game in which all the players on the floor are black.

Foreign visitors—especially males—who plan to be in the United States for an extended peri?od of time will enhance their ability to interact constructively with Americans if they take the trouble to learn about sports teams that have followings in the local area. (80) Knowing some?thing about the games and the players improves the foreign visitor’s chance of getting to know “average” Americans.
