Part One: Reading Comprehension (40%)
Directions: There are 4 passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. You should decide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet by blackening the letter.
Passage 1
Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage:
  It is clear that some chemicals can damage the health of animals and humans. However, this is not the only problem that can be caused by the careless use of chemicals. Chemicals can also disturb the ecological (生态的) balance of the environment. If the ecological balance is disturbed, the consequences can be extremely serious.
  The history of DDT illustrates the problem. DDT, a chemical which kills insects, at first seemed to be a perfect answer to many problems. It would control insects that caused dangerous disease, as well as insects that caused billions of dollars of damage to crops every year. Governments permitted and even encouraged the use of DDT. Farmers in many countries began to spray it on their crops. The immediate results were good. Damage to crops went down, and profits went up. However, the chemical had effects which the scientists did not predict. First, it also killed insects which were the natural enemies of the harmful insects and which were therefore beneficial to farmers. Second, and perhaps worse, DDT did not kill every harmful insect. A few insects had natural resistance to the chemical. They survived and multiplied. In a few years there were large numbers of insects which were not affected by DDT, and there were fewer insects which could act as natural controls on these new “super-insects”. Finally, it became clear that DDT was not solving the insect problem. In fact, it was making the problem worse. It then became necessary to find a second cure for the effects of the first!
The purpose of the passage is  C  .
To tell that DDT can not solve the insect problem
To compare the effects of DDT with those of other cures
To argue that the ecological balance can be damaged by chemicals
To show that some chemicals can damage the health of humans and animals
Which of the following is NOT true?  D
Chemicals cause health problems for animals and people.
Chemicals can disturb the ecological balance of the environment.
At first, the chemical DDT seemed only to have benefits.
The long-term effects of DDT were expected by scientists.
According to the writer, one of the problems with DDT is that  A  .
It also killed insects that helped farmers
It could not kill most of the harmful insects
It caused a decrease in domestic animals
It made some farmers suffer a disease which could not be cured
If a farmer used DDT today, in a few years  B  .
He would have no problems with harmful insects
Insects would be an even greater problem for him
His situation would not be quite different
He would be in a very dangerous situation
Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage?  D
Chemicals must be used carefully.
DDT was effective to kill most insects.
Harmful insects began to be resistant to DDT.
DDT controlled all harmful insects.
Passage 2
Questions 6 to 10 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, too, 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 and on motorcycles. Small portable sets make it possible to communicate with a central exchange while walking or riding in a city or over countryside. 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.
Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?  C
Television has taken the place of radio.
Television is the most popular forms of entertainment.
Television is a kind of radio.
Television is better than radio.

What is the passage mainly about?  B
Modern communication.
Radio and its uses.
The difference between television and radio.
The relation between television and radio.
Passage 3
Questions 11 to 15 are based on the following passage:
  They were hard years --- the difficult years of the 1930s, of the Great Depression (萧条). Women who bore children out of wedlock were disgraced and their children shunned (避开,规避,避免). So when Anna was born to his unwed daughter, her grandfather was deeply distressed. He hid Anna from outsiders in a small, dark attic. Anna’s mother maintained the child physically, but otherwise neglected her. When local authorities “discovered” Anna at the age of 6, she could not walk, talk, or do anything that showed intelligence. Then, Anna was placed in the country home and later in a school for retarded (智力迟钝的,发展迟缓的) children.
  Although she was to die later at 10 years of age, Anna blossomed into a “human” being in the four years following her discovery. Except for fastening her clothes, she was capable of dressing of dressing herself. She kept her clothing clean, habitually washed her hands brushed her teeth, and used the toilet without fail. She could follow directions and would attempt to help other children. While easily excitable, she nonetheless had a pleasant disposition (性情,处置). Most remarkable of all, she learned to repeat words, could talk in phrases, and would attempt to carry on a conversation.
  Like Anna, Isabelle was an illegitimate (不合法的, 私生的) youngster of about 6 years of age when social workers discovered her. However, Isabelle’s circumstances differed from those of Anna in a number of respects. For one thing, Isabelle’s mother, a deaf mute, spent much of her time the girl in a dark room shut off from the rest of the family. For another, Isabelle was given prolonged, systematic, and expert training in speech and other skills by faculty members at Ohio State University. At first Isabelle made only strange sounds and displayed fear and hostility (敌意). But after an intensive language training, Isabelle learned to speak and by 14, she had passed the sixth grade; appeared to be bright, cheerful and energetic, and participated in school activities like other children. Isabelle is reported to have completed high school, to have married, and to have had her own normal family.
Which description about Anna is NOT true?  B

Anna was poor in physical condition.
Anna’s grandfather felt ashamed of her.
Anna was hidden in a small attic.
Before Anna died, she  C  .

Isabelle was different from Anna  A  .
In that she was isolated from the other family members other than her mother
In that she was an adult when being discovered

Isabelle is reported to  B  .
Go to college  B. lead a normal life  C. help her mother learn to speak  D. perform excellently at school
Passage 4
Questions 16 to 20 are based on the following passage:
  A lawyer friend of mine has devoted herself to the service of humanity. Her special area is called “public interest law”.
  Many other lawyers represent (代表) only clients who can pay high fees. All lawyers have had expensive and highly specialized training, and they work long, difficult hours for the money they earn. But what happens to people who need legal help and cannot afford to pay the lawyers’ fees?
  Public interest lawyers fill this need. Patricia, like other public interest lawyers, earns a salary much below what some lawyers can earn. Because she is willing to take less money, her clients have the help they need, even if they can pay nothing at all.
  Some clients need legal help because stores have cheated them with faulty merchandise (商品) . Others are in unsafe apartments, or are threatened with eviction (逐出,赶出) and have no place to go. Their cases are all called “civil” cases. Still others are accused of criminal acts, and seek those public interest lawyers who handle “criminal” cases. There are just a few of the many situations in which the men and women who are public interest lawyers serve to extend justice throughout our society.

Part Four: Translation (15%)
Directions: Read the following passage carefully and translate it into Chinese.
   The science people learn in school can provide the basic framework. But the rate of scientific progress is now so rapid that there are always new developments that have occurred since one was at school or university. I never learned about molecular biology or transistors at school, but genetic engineering and computers are two of the developments most likely to change the way we live in the future. Popular books and magazine articles about science can help to put across new developments, but even the most successful popular book is read by only a small proportion of the population. Only television can reach a truly mass audience. There are some very good science programmes on TV, but others present scientific wonders simply as magic, without explaining them or showing how they fit into the framework of scientific ideas. Producers of television science programmes should realize that they have a responsibility to educate the public, not just entertain it.
Part Five: Writing (15%)
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 25 minutes to write a passage of about 100 words entitled “Youth”, based on the following information:
  Youth is a precious gift and golden time in your life. Youth is also the time when your memory is the best. You are more capable of learning when you are young than when you are old. The knowledge you have acquired during this time will certainly be helpful and useful in your later career.
  Young people are the least conservative and always ready to take in the new. When you are young, you are energetic and vigorous, strong and healthy. Therefore, the young should make full use of time to learn a skill of profession in their youth, setting high goals for themselves and having the courage to overcome any obstacle in their way.
  Youth comes only once in a lifetime. It is important that you should not idle away your youth. If you realize how precious youth is, you will certainly take advantage of it. The truth should always be remembered: never dream away your time when you are young.
