Part IV Reading Comprehension

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

Parents have to do much less for children today than they used to, and home has become much less of a workshop. Clothes can be bought ready made, washing can go to the laundry, food can be bought cooked, canned or preserved, bread is baked and delivered by the baker, milk arrives on the doorstep, meals can be had at the restaurant, the work’s canteen(自助食堂), and the school dining-room.

It is unusual now for father to pursue his trade or other employment at home, and his children rarely, if ever, see him at his place of work.. Boys are therefore seldom trained to follow their father’s profession, and in many towns they have a fairly wide choice of employment and so do girls. The young wage-earner often earns good money, and soon acquires a feeling of economic independence. In textile(纺织) areas it has long been a rule for mothers go out to work, and this practice has become so widespread that the working mother is now a not unusual factor in a child’s home life, and the number of married women in employment has more than doubled in the last twenty-five years. With mother earning and his older children drawing decent(相当好的) wages, father is seldom the dominant figure that he still was at the beginning of the century. When mother works, economic advantages increase, but children lose something of great value if mother’s employment prevents her from being home to greet them when they return from school .

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

If an agreement signed in Germany works out, travelers of this Asian city may one day be able to move from the downtown area to its new airport on a train riding a stream of magnetic energy at speeds up to 500 kilometers per hour.

The 40-kilometer trip----now sometimes a long hour journey when the traffic is heavy----could be cut to less than 10 minutes.

Such are the goals of a costly project designed to help to “shorten” the distance between the city center and the suburban busy airport by making it easier and faster to carry travelers to and back from the airport. 

The mayor of the city and Germany’s Thyssen Krupp AG worked out an agreement in Berlin only several days ago that lays the groundwork for the magnetic levitation(悬浮) train line. They signed an agreement to carry out an initial study on the project and outlined the city’s intention to import German technology. The project, once completed and acceptable to the two business parties, will be a double-win: the German company can benefit from exporting its technology and the city receiving German technology can improve its traffic and further strengthen its position as an international city.

Called Maglev for short, the system under discussion makes use of a high-speed train levitated above a guideway(高速车辆的导路) and driven by magnetic fields. The project has been in the talking stage for several months.

Hans Ueberschaer, the German government official, visited the city together with Harmut Heine, representative of Thyssem Krupp. They had an initial discussion with the mayor three about the project. The talks were believed to be constructive and paved the way for the future talks in Berlin, where an agreement was reached.

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

In some 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 expected 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 standard practice in regard to tipping. The custom 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 your baggage, by taxi drivers( except, perhaps, in a small town), and by those who serve you in hotel and restaurants..

When you pick up your incoming baggage at an airport, you may tip the man who takes it to the taxi or airport bus. He usually expects one dollar a bag for his service. In some cities the taxi that takes you to your hotel may have one meter (计价器) that shows the cost of the trip and another that shows a fixed charge, usually about 50 cents, for “extra”. In some cities the taxi driver may expect a tip in addition to the “extra”, especially if he carries your suitcase. If no “extra” is charged, a tip is usually given. Hotels generally do not make a service charge, though there are places where one is added. It is customary (惯常的), however, to give something to the porter who carries you suitcases and shows you to your room. In case of doubt, one dollar for each bag he carries is satisfactory. In a restaurant you generally leave about 15 percent of the bill in small change on that table as a tip for the person who has served you. A service charge is generally not included in the bill 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.

B、The father plays a more important role than the mother.
C、Children play a more important role than their parents.
D、Parents play a more important role than their children.

A、It is the father’s responsibility.
B、It is the mother’s responsibility.
C、It is the responsibility of both parents.

A、Sound development of children.
B、Equality between men and women.
C、Co-operation between husband and wife.
D、Husband and wife share in tasks and in decision-making.

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.

People have traded and bartered 物物交换) for centuries. Whatever else the flea (跳蚤) market may appear to be, its purpose is the sale and exchange of goods. Whether they are knowledgeable collectors or just plain bargain hunters, people are drawn to the flea market by the enormous amount and variety of goods offered.(76) The possibility of finding something truly valuable before anybody else does make shopping at a flea market a treasure hunt.

For many buyers, the process of bargaining at a flea market is as much fun as the bargain itself. (77) It’s not just the money they save that gives them a sense of accomplishment; it’s the satisfaction of playing an ancient game.

Satisfaction also comes from the immediacy of a flea market exchange. After you negotiate your price, it is “cash and carry”: the dealer pocket your money, you go home with your purchase, and that’s that. You got what you wanted, and the dealer got what he or she wanted.(78) In today’s world of credit cards, the flea market takes you back to a time when life was simpler and money had more meaning.

What do the “fleas” have in common here?(79) Perhaps it is a belief in becoming economically self-sufficient, and in taking control of their own lives. Vendors(摊贩) willingly give up the security of a nine-to-five job in exchange for freedom: freedom from fixed working hours; freedom from the world of inflation; freedom to choose when, where, and what they will sell; freedom to be what they want to be.

Yet the flea market is much more than an odd mixture of people selling a variety of products. “This is a serious enterprise,” says a vendor. “The amount of a labor and organization that goes into an operation like this is impressive.”(80) Perhaps most important to the flea market’s success is the spirit of cooperation among vendors. “At the flea market, everyone is encouraged to be an individual, but, at the same time, to help each other out,” says another vendor. “ It’s a shame cities aren’t run like this.”
