  Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage:

  In recent years, many Americans of both sexes and various ages have become interested in improving their bodies. They have become devoted to physical fitness. The need to exercise has almost become compulsive with many persons who have a strong desire to ‘be more physically fit.

  By nature, Americans are enthusiastic and energetic about their hobbies and pastimes. They apply this enthusiasm, and energy to jogging/running. As a result, there are running clubs to join and many books and magazines to read about running.

  The desire to be physically fit is explained by a ``passion‘’ for good health. The high rate of heart attacks in the 1960s caused an increase on the part of the public in improving the human body. Middle-aged men especially suffer from heart attacks. Thus, they are one group strongly interested in more physical exercise. In fact, many doctors encourage their patients to become more physically active, especially those who have sedentary jobs. it is interesting to note that the rate of heart attacks began to decrease in the 1970s and it is still decreasing. Physical fitness currently enjoys a favored role in the United States. It is a new ``love‘’ that many Americans have cherished. Will it last long? Only time can tell—— or until another ``new passion“

  Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage:

  Many people think there is need to take special care over home security.

  “I‘m all right, I’m insured. ”

  Maybe if you‘re fully insured. Even then you can never recover the real value you place upon your possessions. But you can’t insure against the upset and unhappiness that we all feel if our homes are seriously damaged by some stranger, our windows and doors smashed, our precious possessions ruined.

  “It won‘t happen to me.’‘

  Won‘t it? A home is broken into almost every minute of the day. Thefts of all kinds, including cars and property stolen, happen twice as frequently.

  “I ‘ve nothing worth stealing.”

  You may think not. But in fact every one has something worth a thief‘s attention. And we all have things of special value to us even if they’re` worth little or nothing in cash terms.

  “I‘m only a tenant(房客) here.”

  The thief doesn‘t care whether you’re a tenant or an owner-occupier. You‘re just as likely to be robbed. Have a word with the owner of the house if you think extra locks and fastenings are necessary.

  “They‘ll get in any way.”

  Most thieves are always looking for easy jobs. They are soon discouraged by houses they can‘t get into quickly and easily. So it’s worth taking care.

  This booklet will help you——it‘s based on the practical experience of police forces throughout the country. Most of the suggestions will cost you only a few minutes extra time and thought. A few may involve some expense ,but this is small compared with the loss and unhappiness you might otherwise suffer. If you are in doubt, ask for free advice from the Crime Prevention Officer at your local police station .

  Questions 3I to35 are based on the following passage:

  One silly question I simply cannot tolerate is ``How do you feel?‘’ Usually the question is asked of a man in action——a man walking along the street, or busily working at his desk. So what do you expect him to say? He‘ll probably say, ``Fine, I’m all right.“ But you have put a bug in his ear - maybe now he is not sure. If you are his good friend , you may have seen

  something on his face, or in his walk, that he overlooked that morning. It makes him worrying a little. He looks in a mirror to see if everything is all right, while you go merrily on your way asking someone else, ``How do you feel?‘’

  Every question has its time and place. it‘s perfectly acceptable, for instance, to ask ``How do you feel?’‘ if you are visiting a close friend in the hospital. But if the fellow is walking on both legs, hurrying to take a train or sitting at his desk working, it’s no time to ask him that silly question.

  When George Bernard Shaw, the famous British writer of plays was in his eighties, someone asked him ``How do you feel?‘’ Shaw put him in his place. ``When you reach my age,“ he said, ``either you feel all right or you are dead.”

  D. Gerge Bemard Shaw‘s Reply

  Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage

  In recent years many countries of the world have been faced with the problem of how to make their workers more productive. Some experts claim the answer is to make jobs more varied (我种多样的)。 But do more varied jobs lead to greater productivity? The evidence shows that while variety certainly makes the worker‘s life more enjoyable, it does not actually make him work harder. As far as increasing productivity is concerned, then,variety is not an important factor. Other experts feel that giving the worker freedom to do his job in his own way is important. There is no doubt that this is true. The problem is that this kind of freedom cannot easily be given in the modern factory with its complicated machinery which must be used in a fixed way. Thus, although freedom of choice may be important,usually very little can be done to create it.

  Another important consideration is how much a worker contributes to the product he is making. In most factories the worker sees only one small part of the product. Some car factories are now experimenting with having many small production lines rather than a large one, so that each worker contributes more to the production of the cars on his line. It would seem that not only is degree of the worker‘s contribution an important factor, therefore, but it is also one we can do something about. To what extent does more money lead to greater productivity?

  The workers themselves certainly think this is important. But perhaps they want more money only because the work they do is so boring. Money just lets them enjoy their spare time more. A similar argument may explain demands for shorter working hours. Perhaps if we make their jobs more interesting,

  they will want neither more money nor shorter working hours.

  36. Varied jobs, in writer‘s opinion, will________ .

  A. offer greater productivity

  B. drive workers to work harder

  C. make workers more productive

  D. make worker‘s life more enjoyable, but do not make them more hardworking

  37. According to the passage, freedom can not be easily given since________ .

  A. it is in not what workers care about

  B. it has nothing to do with increasing productivity

  C. freedom will do harm to the management

  D. machines in modern factories must be organized in a fixed way

  38. Degree of the worker‘s contribution is greater when______ .

  A. a factory possesses more experts

  B. a factory has many small production lines

  C. workers enjoy more freedom

  D. workers work at a large production line

  39. Workers want more money and shorter working hours to_____ .

  A. enjoy themselves more after work

  B. produce greater work flow

  C. show their great abilities

  D. challenge the managemen

  40. According to the passage, the statement that best describes the writer‘s attitude is

  A. there are no ways to make workers more productive

  B. workers want more variety, freedom and money , but shorter working time and less contribution

  C. variety ,freedom, contribution , more money and shorter working time seem possible factors leading to greater productivity, actually they are not or they are impossible

  D. it is impossible to make workers work more productively, because the work they do is so boring.

  PARTⅢEnglish-Chinese Translation(15%)

  Directions: Read the following passage carefully. Then translate it into Chinese. Remember to write your translation on the Answer Sheet.

  Old people are always saying that the young are not what they were. The same comment is made from generation to generation and it is always true. It has never been truer than it is today. The young are better educated. They have a lot more money to spend and enjoy more freedom. They grow up more quickly and are not so dependent on their parents. They think more independently and do not blindly accept the ideas of their elders. Events which the older generation remember clearly are nothing more than past history. Every generation is different form the older one and today the difference is very marked indeed.
