2005年4月23日成教英语三级试TiB卷 北京地区成人本科学士学位Ying语统一考试(B) 2005年4Yue23日 Part I Reading Comprehension (30%) Directions: There are three 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 with a single line through the center. Passage 1 Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage: When we talk about intelligence, we do not mean the ability to get good scores on certain kinds of tests or even the ability to do well in school. By intelligence we mean a way of living and behaving, especially in a new or upsetting situation. If we want to test intelligence, we need to find out how a person acts instead of how much he knows what to do. (76) For instance, when in a new situation, an intelligent person thinks about the situation, not about himself or what might happen to him. He tries to find out all he can, and then he acts immediately and tries to do something about it. He probably isn't sure how it will all work out, but at least he tries. And, if he can't make things work out right, he doesn't feel ashamed that he failed; he just tries to learn from his mistakes. An intelligent person, even if he is very young, has a special outlook on life, a special feeling about life, and knows how he fits into it. If you look at children, you'll see great difference between what we call "bright" children and "not-bright" children. They are actually two different kinds of people, not just the same kind with different amount of intelligence. For example, the bright child really wants to find out about life - he tries to get in touch with everything around him. (77) But, the unintelligent child keeps more to himself and his own dream-world; he seems to have a wall between him and life in general. 1. According to this passage, intelligence is __________. A. the ability to study well B. the ability to do well in school C. the ability to deal with life D. the ability to get high scores on some tests 2. In a new situation, an intelligent person__________. A. knows more about what might happen to him B. is sure of the result he will get C. concentrates on what to do about the situation D. cares more about himself 3. If an intelligent person failed, he would__________. A. try not to feel ashamed B. learn from his experiences C. try to regret as much as possible D. make sure what result he would get 4. Bright children and not-bright children__________. A. are two different types of children B. are different mainly in their degree of cleverness C. have difference only in their way of thinking D. have different knowledge about the world 5. The author of this passage will probably continue to talk about __________. A. how to determine what intelligence is B. how education should be found C. how to solve practical problems D. how an unintelligent person should be taught Passage 2 Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage: Human needs seem endless. (78) When a hungry man gets a meal, he begins to think about an overcoat, when a manager gets a new sports car, a big house and pleasure boats dance into view.The many needs of mankind might be regarded as making up several levels. When there is money enough to satisfy one level of needs, another level appears.The first and most basic level of needs involves food. Once this level is satisfied, the second level of needs, clothing and some sort of shelter, appears. By the end of World War I1, these needs were satisfied for a great majority of Americans. Then a third level appeared. It included such items as automobiles and new houses. 1 By 1957 or 1958 this third level of needs was fairly well satisfied. Then, in the late 1950s, a fourth level of needs appeared: the "life-enriching" level. (79) While the other levels involve physical satisfaction, that is. the feed in comfort, safety, and transportation, this level stresses mental needs for recognition, achievement, and happiness. It includes a variety of goods and services, many of which could be called "luxury" items. Among them are vacation trips, the best medical and dental care, and recreation. Also included here are fancy goods and the latest styles in clothing. On the fourth level, a lot of money is spent on services, while on the first three levels more is spent on goods. Will consumers raise their sights to a fifth level of needs as their income increases, or will they continue to demand luxuries and personal services on the fourth level? A fifth level would probably involve needs that can be achieved best by community action. Consumers may be spending more on taxes to pay for government action against disease, ignorance, crime, and prejudice. After filling our stomachs, our clothes closets, our garages, our teeth, and our minds, we now may seek to ensure the health, safety, and leisure to enjoy more fully the good things on the first four levels. 6. According to the passage, man will begin to think about such needs as housing and clothing only when __________ A. he has saved up enough money B. he has grown dissatisfied with his simple shelter C. he has satisfied his hunger D. he has learned to build houses 7. It can be inferred from the passage that by the end of World War II, most Americans __________. A. were very rich B. lived in poverty C. had the good things on the first three levels D. did not own automobiles 8. Which of the following is NOT related to "physical satisfaction"? A. A successful career. B. A comfortable home. C. A good meal. D. A family car. 9. What is the main concern of man on the fourth level? A. The more goods the better. B. The more mental satisfaction the better. C. The more "luxury" items the better. D. The more earnings the better. 10. The author tends to think that the fifth level __________ A. would be little better than the fourth level B. may be a lot more desirable than the first four C. can be the last and most satisfying level D. will become attainable before the government takes actions Passage 3 Questions 11 to 15 are based on the following passage: We use both words and gestures to express our feelings, but the problem is that these words and gestures can be understood in different ways. It is true that a smile means the same thing in any language. So does laughter or crying. There are also a number of striking similarities in the way different animals show the same feelings. Dogs, tigers and humans, for example, often show their teeth when they are angry. This is probably because they are born with those behavior patterns. Fear is another emotion that is shown in much the same way all over the world. (80) In Chinese and in English literature, a phrase like "he went pale and begin to tremble" suggests that the man is either very afraid or he has just got a very big shock. However, "he opened his eyes wide" is used to suggest anger in Chinese whereas in English it means surprise. In Chinese "surprise" can be described in a phrase like 'they stretched out their tongues!' Sticking out your tongue in English is an insulting gesture or expresses strong dislike. Even in the same culture, people differ in ability to understand and express feelings. Experiments in America have shown that women are usually better than men at recognizing fear, anger, love and happiness on people's faces. Other studies show that older people usually find it easier to recognize or understand body language than younger people do. 11. According to the passage, __________. A. we can hardly understand what people's gestures mean B. we can not often be sure what people mean when they describe their feelings in words or gestures C. words can be better understood by older people 2 D. gestures can be understood by most of the people while words can not 12. People's facial expressions may be misunderstood because __________. A. people of different ages may have different understanding B. people have different cultures C. people of different sex may understand a gesture in a different way D. people of different countries speak different languages 13. In the same culture, __________. A. people have different ability to understand and express feelings B. people have the same understanding of something C. people never fail to understand each other D. people are equally intelligent 14. From this passage, we can conclude __________. A. words are used as frequently as gestures B. words are often found difficult to understand C. words and gestures are both used in expressing feelings D. gestures are more efficiently used than words 15. The best title for this passage may be __________. A. Words and Feelings B. Words, Gestures and Feelings C. Gestures and Feelings D.

You should decide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the centre. Passage One Questions 41 to 44 are based on the following passage. One of the most famous statues in the world stands on an island in the New York Harbor, named the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty is a woman who holds a torch up high. Visitors can go inside the statue. The statue is so large that only its torch can hold as many as 12 people. Many more people can stand in other parts of the statue. It weighs, altogether, 225 tons and is 301 feet tall. The Statue of Liberty was put up in 1886. It was a present to the United States from the people of France. Over the years France and the United States had a special relationship. In 1776 France helped the American colonies (Zhi民地) gain independence from England. The French wanted to do something special for the U.S centennial (Yi百周年), its 100th birthday. It was, Laboulaye, a well-known Frenchman who designed the statue. In the process of construction, many people contributed in some way. For example, the French engineer Alexander Eiffel, who was famous for his Eiffel Tower in Paris, figured out how to make the heavy statue stand. Now when visitors come to the United States through New York, they can see this great statue holding up her torch, symbolizing a welcome to a land of freedom. 41. The Statue of Liberty is famous statue in _____. A. France B. the United States C. the United Nations D. Japan 42. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from ____. A. the people all over the world B. Laboulaye and Eiffel to the United States C. the people of America to France D. the people of France to the United States 43. The main reason that France sent the Statue of Liberty as a gift to the United States is ____. A. for its independence B. for their friendship C. for its 100th birthday D. to avoid the coming war 44. The Statue of Liberty symbolizes a ____. A. land of freedom B. woman with a torch C. welcome to visitors D. famous Frenchman, Laboulaye Passage Two Questions 45 to 48 are based on the following passages. Parents whose children show a special interest in a sport feel very difficult to make a decision about their children’s careers. Should they allow their children to train to become top sports men and women? For many children it means starting schoolwork very young, and going out with friends and other interests have to take a second place. It’s very difficult to explain to a young child why he or she has to train five hours a day, even at the weekend, when most of his or her friends are playing. Another problem is of course money. In many countries money for training is available from government for the very best young sportsmen and women. If this help can not be given, it means that it is the parents who have to find the time and the money to support their child’s development and sports clothes, transport to competitions, special equipment, etc., which can be very expensive. Many parents are worried that it is dangerous to start serious training in a sport at an early age. Some doctors agree that young muscles may be damaged by training before they are properly developed. It is clear that very few people do reach the top, and both parents and children should be prepared for failure even after many years of training. Professional trainers, however, believe that it is only by training young that you can reach the top as a successful sports person. 45. This passage is probably taken from ____. A. a newspaper article B a letter C. a personal diary D. an advertisement 46. According to the passage, parents whose children show a special interest in a sport ____. A. prefer their children to be trained as young as possible B. try to get financial support from the government for their children’s training C. have to get medical advice from doctors about training methods D. feel uncertain if they should let their children train to be sports men or women 47. The phrase “ to take a second place” (Para. 1) means ____. A. to happen again B. to become less important C. to repeat the activities some other day D. all things considered, they are of poor quality 48 ____ can become the best players after many years of training. A. Most people B. Some people C. Very few people D. No people Passage Three Questions 49 to 53 are based on the following passage. Packaging (Bao装) is an important form of advertising. A package can sometimes motivate someone to buy a product. For example, a small child might ask for a breakfast food that comes in a box with a picture of a TV character. The child is more interested in the picture than in breakfast food. Pictures for children to color or to cut out, games printed on a package, or small gifts inside a box also motivate many children to buy products or to ask their parents to buy for them. Some packages suggest that a buyer will get something for nothing. Food products sold in reusable containers are example of this. Although a similar product in a plain container might cost less, people often prefer to buy the product in a reusable glass or dish, because they believe the container is free. However, the cost of the container is added to the cost of the product. The size of the package also motivates a buyer. Maybe the package has “Economy Size” or “Family Size” printed on it. Th is suggests that the large size has the most products for the least money. But that is not always true. To find it out, a buyer has to know how the product is sold and the price of the basic unit. The information on the package should provide some answers. But the important thing for any buyer to remember is that a package is often an advertisement. The words and pictures do not tell the whole story. Only the product inside can do that. 49. Packaging is an important form of advertising because a package ____. A. is usually very useful B. can sometimes motivate someone to buy a product C. is usually very beautiful D. can tell a buyer everything about the product inside 50. “A buyer will get something for nothing”(Para.2) most probably means that ____. A. a buyer will get what he pays for B. a buyer will not get what he wants C. a buyer will get something free of charge D. a buyer will gain more than he loses 51. People are likely to buy the product sold in a glass or dish because ____. A. they have no other choice B. they think they can get the container for free C. the container is too attractive D. they know the cost of the container is included in the cost of the product 52. Which of the following statements is NOT mentioned in the passage? A. A buyer is also attracted by the size of the container. B. Children are often made to buy a product by its package with attractive pictures. C. People prefer to buy the product in a reusable container. D. On seeing a well-designed container, a buyer does not care about what is inside it. 53. The writer suggests that a buyer should remember ____. A. that a package is often an advertisement B. to get the product in a large-size package C. to get the product sold in a glass or dish D. to get the product without any package Section B Short Answer Questions ( 4 points, 1 point each) Directions: Read the following business letter.
