  Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage

  How men first learnt to invent words is unknown; in other words. the origin of language is a mystery. All we really know is that men, unlike animals, somehow invented certain sounds to express thoughts and feelings, actions and things, so that they could communicate with each other; and that later they agreed upon certain signs, called lettets, which could be combined to represent those sounds, and which could be written down. Those sounds,whether spoken or written in letters, we call words.

  The power of words, then, lies in their associations - the things they bring up before our minds. Words become filled with meaning for us by experience; and the longer we live, the more certain words recall to us the glad and sad events of our past; and the more we read and lean, the more the number of words that mean something to us increases.

  Great writers are those who not only have great thoughts but also express these thoughts in words which appeal powerfully to our minds and emotions. This charming use of words is what we call literary style. Ahove aIL, the real poet is a master of words. He can convey his meaning in words which sing like music, and which by their position and association can move men to tears. We should therefore learn to choose our words carefully and use them accurately, or they will make our speech silly and dull.

  A. a legend handed down from the past

  B. a matter that is hidden secretly

  C. a question difficult to answer

  A. they could agree upon certain signs

  B. they could write them down

  C. they could communicate with each other

  D. they could combine them

  33. What is true about the words?

  A. They are used to express feelings only.

  B. They can not be written down.

  C. They are simply sounds.

  D. They are mysterious.

  34. In expressing their thoghts, great writers are able _ .

  A. to confuse the readers

  B. to move men to tears

  C. to move our actions

  D. to puzzle our feelings

  35 . Which of the following statements about the real poet is NOT true?

  C. He can move men to tears.

  Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage,

  Today is the anniversary of that afternoon in April a year ago that I first saw the strange and appealing doll(玩具娃娃) in the window of Abe Sheftel‘s toy shop on Third Avenue near Fifteenth Street, just around the corner from my office, where the plate on the door reads:

  Dr.Samuel Amory. I remember just how it was that day: the first hint of spring floated across the East River, mixing with the soft-coal smoke from the factories and the street smells of the poor neighborhood. As I tunled the corner on my way to work and came to Sheftel‘s, i was made once more aware of the poor collection af toys in the dusty window,and I remembered the approaching birthday of a small niece of mine in CLeveland, to whom I was in the habit of sending modest gifts. Therefore, I stopped and examined the window to see if there might be anything suitable, and Iooked at the confusing collection of unappealing objects - a red toy, fite engine,some lead soldiers, cheap baseballs, bottles of ink, pens, yellowed eneloes, and advertisements for soft-drinks. And thus it was that my eyes eventually came to rest upon the doll stored away in one corner, a doll with the strangest, most charming expression on her face. I could not wholly make her out, due to the shadows and the film of dust through which I was looking,but I was aware that a tremendous impression had been made upon me as though I had run into a person. as one does sometimes with a stranger, with whose personality one is deeply impressed.

  Sations B

  Vandalism, that is, the sensdess destruction of other peopLe‘s property, seems to have become part of modern life, and, at the same time, we have come to accept mugging, in other words, robbery with violence in our street, as a common danger. It is intersting to note that, during the Second World War when London was blacked out every night. vandalism and mugging were practicaILy unknown. People walked the streets in complete darkness without fear of being attacked or robbed on their way home. There were, of course, other and more terrible dangers, and obviously thieves and criminals were still around.

  But young people did not hit a telephone hox just for the heU of it, terrorize old ladies or purposely damage public buildings or grounds. Destruction as the result of air attacks stared every one in the face and the danger of renewed bombing was ever-present. Nevertheless there was in a sense full employment. Most people, with the exception of the very young, the old and the sick, were either serving in one of the armed forces, working in factories. or otherwise engaged in helping the war effort. No one needed to be idle and there wasn‘t much sympathy for those who were.

  Perhaps it is true to say that in our modem progressive society vandalism and mugging express hatred for idleness, the despair of young people who have no purpose in life and who face unemployment from the moment they leave school. Statistics show that acts of this kind are mostly committed by young people, often teenagers, who seem to have come to the conclusion that society does not want them because they are poorly educated, or a different race or color, or, there is no way to release their energy.

  41. What is vandalism?

  42. Was vandalisnl a serious problem dming the Second World War in London?

  43. What kind of people are likely to commit vandalism?

  44. People commit such acts as vandalism and mugging nowadays because _ .

  45. The author implies but does not clearly state that _ should be blamed for vandalism.

  PartⅢEnglish-Chiese Translation

  Where is the boundary between human mind and machine? If the best were rasoning ability, the computer would be our superior. But logic alone does not make a first-class mind. In our complicated world, straightforward reasoning doesn‘t always work. As is known to all Productive thought requires not just the rules of logic but a wealth of experience and background information, plus the ability to generalize and interpret new experiences using that information. A genius like Einstein is produced only after many years of study, which is the period of time needed to lay foundations for a creative mind.
