Part IV Reading Comprehension

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

Today television is one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the home. Some people in places where television reception is good may think that television has taken the place of radio. Television, however, is actually a kind of radio. It uses special equipment for sending and receiving the picture. The television sound system uses the same type of equipment that is used in other forms of radio.

Exchanging messages with ships at sea was one of the first uses of radio. Modern radio is still used for this purpose and for communication across oceans. On land radio provides a means of instant communication even with moving vehicles such as taxicabs or service trucks.

Police forces use two-way radio to get information to and from officers in squad cars (少姥概) and on motorcycles. Small portable sets make it possible to communicate with a central exchange while walking or riding in a city or over a rural area. Observers in airplanes can report traffic accidents, and traffic jams by radio to police officers on the ground.

Radiotelephones are used in many places. Connection with the regular telephone service can be provided for boats, trains and cars. Isolated places in deserts, forests, and mountainous regions are linked by radiotelephone in many parts of the world. Thus by means of radio people can communicate with others wherever service is provided.

A、has taken the place of radio
B、is no longer popular in the home
C、can be regarded as a kind of radio
D、has nothing in common with radio

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

The dog, called Prince, was an intelligent animal and a slave to Williams. From morning till night, when Williams was at home, Prince never left his sight, practically ignoring all other members of the family. The dog had a number of clearly defined duties, for which Williams had patiently trained him and, like the good pupil he was, Prince lived for the chance to demonstrate his abilities. When Williams wanted to put on his boots, he would murmur ^Boots ̄ and within seconds the dog would drop them at his feet. At nine every morning Prince ran off to the general store in the village, returning shortly not only with Williams¨s daily paper but with a half-ounce packet of William¨s favorite tobacco, John Rhiney¨s Mixed. A gun-dog (壮昂) by breed, Prince possessed a large soft mouth specially evolved (序晒) for the safe carrying of hunted creature, so the paper and the tobacco came to no harm, never even showing a tooth mark.

Williams was a railway man, an engine driver, and he wore a blue uniform which smelled of oil fuel. He had no work at odd times C ^days ̄, ^late days ̄ or ^nights ̄. Over the years Prince got to know these periods of work and rest, knew when his master would leave the house and return, and the dog did not waste this knowledge. If Williams overslept, as he often did, Prince barked at the bedroom door until he woke, much to the annoyance of the family. On his return, Williams¨s slippers were brought to him, the paper and tobacco too if previously undelivered.

A curious thing happened to Williams during the snow and the ice of last winter. One evening he slipped and fell on the icy pavement somewhere between the village and his home. He was so badly shaken that he stayed in bed for three days and not until he got up and dressed again did he discover that he had lost his wallet containing over fifty pounds.

The house was turned upside down in the search, but the wallet was not found. However, two days later C that was five days after the fall C Prince dropped the wallet into Williams¨s had. Very muddy, dirty and wet through, the little case still contained fifty-three pounds, Williams¨s driving license and a few other papers. Where the dog had found it no one could tell, but found that he had recognized it probably by the faint oil smell on the worn leather.

66. What does the passage tell us about gun-dog?
A、They are the fastest runners of all dogs.
B、Their teeth are removed when they are young.

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

The failed Skylab (腎寂嫋) will come screaming home to earth in disappointment sometime next month, but it will fall we know not where.

That precise information is beyond even the calculations of scientists and their computers.

The best they can tell us is that the space station, weighing 77 tons and as high as a 12-sstory building, will break into hundreds of pieces that will be scattered across a track 100 miles wide and 4000 mikes long.

We are again exposed to one of those unexpected adventures, or misadventures, of science that attracts our attention from the boring routines of daily existence and encourages us to think a lot about man¨s future.

What worries Richard Smith, the Skylab¨s director, is the ^big pieces ̄ that will come through the atmosphere. Two lumps, weighing 2 tons each, and ten weighing at least 1,000 pounds each, will come in at speeds of hundreds of miles an hour, and if they crash on land they will dig holes up to 100 feet deep.

What worries us, with our lack of scientific knowledge and our quick imagination, is both the big and small pieces, although project officials say there is very little chance that anyone will be injured by them.

That is good to know, but it does not remove the doubts of the millions who still remember the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island. That accident took place in 1979 in spite of what scientists had assured us as to the safety of the nuclear reactor.

71. Where the Skylab will fall _____.
A、cannot be predicted even by computer
B、is kept secret from the whole world
C、is made public to all countries
D、is predicted by the scientists involved in the program
72. The broken Skylab will _____.
A、be in two lumps C one weighing 2 tons and the other weighing 10 tons
B、fall with the force of a 12-story building
C、cover a large round area
D、break into 12 big pieces and hundreds of smaller ones
73. In the fourth paragraph, we are told that _____.
A、people usually do not pay attention to the environment
B、people expect to be exposed to dangers in their daily existence
C、the accident makes people worry about our safety on the earth
D、most people consider their life boring
74. The author refers to the accident of Three Mile Island _____.
A、to express his doubts about scientists¨ assurance
B、because he fears that a piece of the Skylab may strike a nuclear reactor
C、to remind the reader of the terrible accident
D、because the nuclear reactor there and the Skylab were built by the same company
75. What does the author mainly try to tell us in the passage?
A、Science and technology need improving.
B、Science may bring disasters to the human race.
C、People should not readily believe experts.
D、Ordinary people are more imaginative than scientists.

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.

English is not only used as a foreign language, it also has some kind of special status (仇了) in those countries where it has been chosen as an official language. This is the case in Ghana and Nigeria, for example, where the governments have chosen English as the main language to carry on the affairs of government, education, commerce, the media, and the legal system. (76) In such cases, people have to learn English if they want to get success in life. (77) They have their mother-tongue to begin with and they start learning English, in school or in the street, at an early age. For them, in due course, English will become a language to fall back on C when their mother-tongue proves to be inadequate for communication C talking to people from a different background, for example, or to people from outside the country. For them, English becomes their ^second ̄ language.

In 1985, the population of India was estimated to be 769 million. English is an official language here, alongside Hindi. (78) Several other languages have special status in their own regions, but English is the language of the legal system; it is a major language in Parliament; and it is a preferred language in the universities and in the all-India competitive exams for senior posts in such fields as the civil service and engineering. Some 3,000 English newspapers are published throughout the country. There is thus great reason to learn to use the language well. In real terms, (79) the English speakers of India may only number 70 million C a small amount compared with the total population. On the other hand, this figure is well in excess of the population in Britain.

When all the estimates for second-language use around the world are added up, we reach a figure of around 300 million speakers C about as many as the total of mother-tongue users. But we have to remember that most of these countries are in parts of the world (Africa, Sough America) where the population increase is four times as great as that found in mother-tongue countries. (80) If present trends continue, within a generation mother-tongue English use will have been left far behind.
