Part IV Reading Comprehension

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

Many people who are rich are also well-known. Ted Sweeney was an exception to this rule. His family moved to San Francisco from Los Angeles when he was one month old. That’s where he grew up. At the age of seventeen he was hit by a train. Although he was not seriously hurt, the railroad paid him $25,000. Instead of going to college he bought a small store. Six months later the government bought his land to build a new highway. He sold it for $95,000.

With this money he moved to Detroit. He started a small company that made parts for the car manufacturers. It was very successful and by the time he was 23 he was a millionaire. When he was 24 he got married. He and his wife had three daughters in the next five years. By the time he was 30 he had over ten million dollars.

Then tragedy struck. He was involved in a traffic accident. He did not die but his wife and daughters did. Six months later he sold everything he owned and put his money in stocks. Ted then moved to New York. He lived for the next forty years in a one-room apartment.

He spent most of his days wandering through the city looking in garbage cans for food. He never worked. He rarely talked to anyone except himself. Most people were afraid of him. His clothes were always old and dirty.

Shortly before he died he moved back to Los Angeles. After spending two weeks there he was put in jail because he had no money and no job. City workers tried to help him. They offered him work but he would not work. Towards the end he would not talk to anyone at all.

When he died, he was a lonely man. But someone remembered his name. They knew he had lived in Detroit and had been successful. It was learned that he had put his stocks in a box at a Detroit bank. After they were sold and all the taxes paid, there was still over a hundred million dollars left.

61. Where did Sweeney grow up?
A、San Francisco.
B、Detroit
C、Los Angeles
D、New York.

C、He led a poor life there.
D、He made many friends there.
64. How old probably was Sweeney when he died?
A、Over 70.
B、Over 80.
C、Over 50.
D、Over 60.

A、Sweeney lost all his money in the stock market.
B、People may be rich but not well-known.
C、People may not be aware of their wealth.
D、Sweeney became rich by selling food cans.

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

If it were only necessary to decide whether to teach elementary science to everyone on a mass basis or to find the gifted few and take them as far as they can go, our task would be fairly simple. The public school system, however, has no such choice, for the jobs must be carried on at the same time. Because we depend so heavily upon science and technology for our progress, we produce specialists in many fields. Because we live in a democratic nation, whose citizens make the policies for the nation, large numbers of us must be educated to understand, to support, and when necessary, to judge the work of experts. The public school must educate both producers and users of scientific services.

In education, there should be a balance among the branches of knowledge that contribute to effective thinking and wise judgment. Such balance is defeated by too much emphasis on any one field. This question of balance involves not only the relation of the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the arts, but also relative emphasis among the natural sciences themselves.

Similarly, we must have a balance between current and classical knowledge. The attention of the public is continually drawn to new possibilities in scientific fields and the discovery of new knowledge; these should not be allowed to turn our attention away from the sound, established materials that form the basis of courses for beginners.

66. According to the passage, the task for the public school system is _______.
A、complicated
B、simple
C、easy
D、unnecessary
67. Whom must the public school educate according to the writer?
A、Common people only.
B、Both experts and officials.
C、Specialists only.
D、Both common people and specialists.
68. The writer believes that the public school education must take care of_____.
A、the arts only
B、all useful fields
C、the natural sciences only
D、the social sciences only
69. Which of the following does the writer think most important to students?
A、The latest developments in science and technology.
B、The work of experts.
C、Both newly-found and well-established knowledge.
D、The basis of courses for beginners.
70. Which of the following is the best title for the passage?
A、Subjects in Public School System.
B、Balance in Education.
C、Judging the Work of Experts.
D、Education and Knowledge.

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

Dear Mr. Paul,

Well, I’ve just signed the lease(租约) and I’m opening my own radio and TV repair shop. Even though I haven’t finished half the course yet, the practical experience I had before I started and what I’ve learned from you folks so far makes me feel I can make a go of it.

I guess that gives you some idea why I’ve gotten a little behind in my payments. I think I owe you for three months right now. It takes a lot of money to start a shop, fix it up and get all the tools and equipment.

Everybody’s been very nice to me. The companies I approached have all agreed to give me credit even though I'm new and never did any business with them before. Well, you folks have known me for nearly six months now and until recently I’ve always paid on time. You know what can be made in this business and from the good grades and reports I’ve had on my assignments I think you know I have what it takes to make this business a success.

So I’m asking you to do what the people who don’t know me have done. I want to complete the course just as fast as I can. The more I know the better I can do, but I want you to give me credit. I want to finish the course and pay you when the shop starts earning money.

Maybe six months from now, I’ll have an easy time paying. In the meantime keep me going and you can count on getting your money when I’m through. I’ve got to hold on to all my money for working capital.

I'll appreciate your cooperation.

Very truly yours,
John Johnson

C、Uncertain.
D、Amazed.
74. In the letter writer promises that he will _____.
A、thank everyone who helped him
B、take more courses from the school

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.

Nearly every day, giant tankers carry 8 million barrels of oil from Saudi Arabia (沙特阿拉伯) to refineries (炼油厂) around the world. But after the recent bombing in Riyadh, energy analysts (分析家) are nervously reassessing(重新评估) the stability of supplies of crude from the oil kingdom.

Since oil prices are relatively high entering winter, Americans will notice any further problems in Saudi Arabia as they fill up their gas tank or pay for home heating oil. 76) The price for West Texas crude closed above $32 a barrel last week, the highest point since the beginning of October and up from about $25 a barrel last year at this time.The higher price of crude is already reflected in steeper costs than last season: home heating oil is up some 19 cents a gallon, and gasoline is 9 cents a gallon higher. “The only thing keeping prices above $25 a barrel is fear of terrorist (恐怖分子) activity,” says Dennis Gartman, publisher of the Gartman Letter, an influential political and economic newsletter. “77) All things being equal and if there are no terrorist attacks, these are very high prices.

The US depends heavily on Saudi Arabia for oil. In terms of that arrangement, 78) one key concern, says Mr. Gartman, is the long distance that Saudi Arabia moves its oil to terminals (终点). “The pipelines are long and exposed as they move across the desert,” he says. “I don’t care how vigilant (警觉) you are, there are places that you are not defending.”

So far, however, there have been no attacks on the pipelines, producing areas, or terminals. The most recent attack was on a housing complex. But energy analysts are taking seriously such a target - more political than economic - particularly since 79) Saudi Arabia is the second-largest supplier of oil to the United States and represents one-third of all oil produced by OPEC (石油输出国组织).“(80) The problems should remind us how dependent we are on Saudi oil production,” says Robert Hormats, vice chairman of Goldman Sachs International in New York. “We have an interest in a stable Saudi Arabia.”
