Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. A I used to think ants knew what they were doing. The ones marching across my kitchen counter looked so confident; I just figured they had a plan, knew where they were going and what needed to be done. How else could ants organize highways, build elaborate nests, launch impressive attacks, and do all the other things ants do? Turns out I was wrong. Ants aren’t clever little engineers, architects, or soldiers after all --- at least not as individuals. When it comes to deciding what to do next, most ants don’t have a clue. “If you watch an ant try to accomplish something, you’ll be impressed by how awkward it is,” says Deborah M. Gordon, a biologist at Stanford University.

“Ants aren’t smart,” Gordon says. “Ant colonies are.” A colony can solve problems unthinkable for individual ants, such as finding the shortest path to the best food source, assigning workers to different tasks, or defending a territory from neighbors. As individuals, ants might be tiny dummies, but as colonies they respond quickly and effectively to their environment. They do it with something called collective intelligence. Where this intelligence comes from raises an essential question in nature: How do the simple actions of individual ants add up to the complex behavior of a group? How do hundreds of honey-bees make a critical decision about their hive (蜂巢)if many of them disagree? The collective abilities of such animals --- one of which grasps the big picture, but each of which contributes to the group’s success --- seem miraculous even to the biologists who know them best. Yet during the past few decades, researchers have come up with fascinating insights. 56. The author’s former false impression about ants is that he thought them to be _______. A. smart B. awkward C. elaborate D. creative 57. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Ants will function as a single body once a decision is made by the commander. B. Ants are the only species which developed collective intelligence. C. The ant queen plays a role in managing ant workers besides laying eggs. D. An individual ant can’t comprehend the whole process of a big movement. 58. The paragraph following the passage will most probably deal with _______. A. where we can observe such fantastic behavior of ants B. which is the leading ant in charge of the action C. how the collective intelligence works D. what inspiration can be drawn from the collective abilities B The idea of using radio or wireless to broadcast to audiences was formed in 1916 by a president of the American Marconi Company, David Sarnoff. His superiors were doubtful about his idea to “make radio a household cause, so that by purchase of a ‘radio music box’, the audience could enjoy lectures, music performance, etc.” Four years later the American engineer Frank Conrad, an employee at W E Corp, attracted considerable attention when a local newspaper reported on the growing audience listening on crystal radio sets to his evening and weekend amateur broadcasts. A local music store had provided records to play on the Victoria, and Conrad and his family served as disc jockeys(唱片音乐播音员). Westinghouse vice president Harry Davis asked Conrad to build a more powerful transmitter(发射台)in time to announce the outcome of the next US presidential election. Conrad completed his assignment, and on November 2, 1920, station KDKA in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, broadcast the announcement that Warren G. Harding had been elected president. About 1000 people heard this first news broadcast. Radio communicated news much faster than did newspapers, and because crystal sets were easy to build and inexpensive, radio expanded rapidly in the following years. To stimulate the sale of radio sets, equipment manufactures provided transmitting facilities. Singers, comedians, and entire orchestras

volunteered their services for publicity. The eventual financial basis of the new industry, however, was still unclear. One group in New York City tried to seek contributions from listeners while others urged that private foundations support radio stations as a public service. In August 1922 the first commercial radio advertisement was broadcast on WEAF (now WNBC) in New York City. In 1926, when about 5 million homes had radios, the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), in cooperation with the American Telephone & Telegraph Company, established the first commercial radio network. In the 1920s radio was established as a new mass medium had a practicable industry, and it became a national forum(论坛)for news and popular culture. 59. The passage is mainly concerned with _______. A. the contribution of radio to popular culture B. the invention and uses of radio C. early radio programs for a mass audience D. the history of radio broadcasting 60. Who started broadcasting radio programs to mass audience? A. Frank Conrad B. David Sarnoff C. Harry Davis D. Warren Harding 61. After 1920, radio expanded rapidly because _______. A. people could easily get it in stores B. it was cheaper than newspapers C. it had advantages over newspapers D. people were interested in anything new 62. By saying that “the eventual financial basis of the new industry was still unclear”, the author means that _______. A. the private foundations were unwilling to support the stations B. the stations were not sure yet where to get the operational money C. advertising and commercial programs could not raise enough money D. the listeners would not pay for the broadcasting stations C It could be said that the age of adventure peaked with Sir Everest Shackleton the moment his ship, the Endurance, become hopelessly locked in ice on its way to Antarctica in January 1915. For ten months the 28 men aboard Shackleton’s ship waited and prayed for ice to break. When it finally did, the Endurance sank, leaving the crew homeless and adrift on a sea of ice in one of the world’s most dangerous environments. In January 2000 a luxury ocean liner found itself similarly trapped in the cold waters off Antarctica. Argentine authorities sent off an icebreaker straight away from the nearest naval base, and in 24 hours, all 176 passengers and crew were free. The tour company’s spokesperson spun the potential disaster as a value-added reward in extreme travel. “The people on board are looking at this as sort of a great adventure,” she said. Ever since Jon Krakauer’s book Into Thin Air made Everest a household name, the subculture of adventure has blown up like a Himalayan avalanche(雪崩) into public consciousness. Magazines promise “extreme” content, television, offers adventure programs, and the growing collective fascination with adventure has produced a flow of published accounts about the world’s greatest adventurous journey. Nowadays more and more people are interested in adventure and this mass appeal makes good business

sense. Today the only thing blocking a would-be adventurer’s passage to Antarctica is the cost---- which typically runs well over $10,000. Despite very different implications, adventure was just as popular in Shackleton’s time. He has little trouble filling the Endurance----5,000 men are said to have responded to his recruitment(招募) notice: “Men wanted for risky journey. Small wages. Bitter cold. Long months of complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful.” After five months drifting on ice, the crew were forced to take to their lifeboats to Elephant Island. Reaching the wasteland, Shackleton went on with one lifeboat and five of his best men 1,300 kilometers across the bone-chilly Scotia Sea to South Georgia Island. Shivering with cold, dressed in rags, Shackleton marched into a whaling station and set about organizing a rescue expedition to Elephant Island. Almost two years after becoming shipwrecked on ice, Shackleton picked up his crew. “Not a life lost, and we have been through hell,” he remarked earnestly. 63. We can learn from the first sentence of this passage that _______. A. the age of adventure began with the ship Endurance trapped in ice B. Shackleton’s adventure marked the highest point of pure exploration C. the age of adventure ended with the ship Endurance trapped in ice D. Shackleton’s adventure predicted that the golden age of exploration was approaching 64. The word “spun” in the second paragraph can be replaced by “_______”. A. summed up B. judged C. boasted about D. referred to 65. Since Jon Krakauer’s book was published _______. A. the media have got interested in the topic of adventure B. the costs of extreme travel have gone up C. Everest has got its name known to Europe D. people have got fascinated by Himalayan avalanches 66. The adventure in Shackleton’s time has different implications from today’s in that _______. A. Shackleton’s adventure lasted longer then any other adventure nowadays B. no one was missing during Shackleton’s adventure C. Shackleton’s adventure was entirely for the sake of adventure D. Shackleton enrolled volunteers more easily

My wife and I recently welcomed a child into the world. His only interest right now is keeping us awake 24/7. But one day, he’ll need to learn something about finance. When he does, here are some suggestions. 1. You might think you want an expensive car, a fancy watch, and a huge house. But you don’t. (67)________________________ You think having expensive stuff will bring it. It almost never does—especially from the people you want to respect and admire you. 2. The road to financial regret is paved with debt. Some debt, such as a mortgage, is OK. But most spending that results in debt is the equivalent of a drug: a quick hit of pleasure that wears off, only to drag you down for years to come, limiting your options and keeping you weighed down by the baggage of your past. 3. I hope you’re poor at some point. Not struggling, and not unhappy, of course. But there’s no way to learn the value of money without feeling the power of its scarcity. It teaches you the difference between necessary and desirable. (68) ________________________ These are essential survival skills. 4. If you’re like most people, you’ll spend most of your adult life thinking, “Once I’ve saved/earned $X, everything will be great.” Then you’ll hit $X, move the goalposts, and resume chasing your tail. It’s a miserable cycle. Your goals should be about more than money. 5. Don’t stay in a job you hate because you made a career choice at 18. Almost no one knows what he or she wants to do at that age. Many people don’t know what they want until they’re twice that age. (These are the signs you’re in the wrong career.) 6. The best thing money buys is to control over your time. (69) ________________________ One day you’ll realize that this freedom is one of the things that makes you truly happy. 7. Change your mind when you need to. I’ve noticed a tendency for people to think they’ve mastered investing when they’re young. They start investing at age 18 and think they have it all figured out by age 19. They never do. 8. Some people are born into families that encourage education; others are from families that are against it. Some are born into flourishing economies; others, into war and poverty. I want you to be successful, and I want you to earn it. But realize that not all success is due to hard work and not all poverty is due to laziness. Keep this in mind when judging people, including yourself. 9. Your savings rate has a little to do with how much you earn and a lot to do with how much you spend. I know a dentist who lives paycheck to paycheck, always on the edge of ruin. I know another person who never earned more than $50,000 and saved a fortune. The difference is entirely due to their spending. (70) __________________________. 10. Don’t listen to me if you disagree with what I’ve written. The world you grow up in will have different values and opportunities than the one I did. More important, you’ll learn best when you disagree with someone and then are forced to learn it yourself. (On the other hand, always listen to your mother.) IV. Summary Writing

Meet The Member Who Quit Sugar
When I was 15, I weighed 100 kg. I was a size 20+ and hated the way I looked. I was a serial big eater and quite depressed. I would sit in front of the fridge, eat something, move to the cupboard, eat a packet of chips, and move back to the fridge. It was a heartbreaking cycle of hate and food. I didn’t feel confident, pretty, or worthwhile. Shopping made me cry, I avoided mirrors, and my social life came to an end. I actually lost friends because they told me I was antisocial. It became so bad that I wanted to abuse myself; my skin and my mind became my enemy. But then, I turned my life around. I quit sugar. It started with my mum. She staged an intervention (干预) that made me cry. I wanted to change I needed to change - and she could see how unhappy I was. She put me onto a diet that mostly aimed to schedule meals, and - to my shock horror - cut out all processed sugar. It was so hard at first. I remember the shame of sneaking chocolate and candies when the three o’clock hunger hits. But the weeks kept coming and it just got easier. I stopped eating sugar, and I stopped loving it; simple as that. I substituted chips and biscuits for fruit and nuts, and had cup-of-soups after school when I was hit by the desire. I also had more energy, having a 20-minute walk with my dog into my everyday routine; I began to love that personal time. Cutting out sugar gave me so much more control over my body, and my outlook on life improved. So many people are intimidated by the words “quit sugar”. It’s not true. Fruit, honey, et cetera are natural sugars, and believe me, they fuel you better than chocolate bars ever could. Now I’m 17, turning 18, and I weigh 70 kg. I still struggle with my weight, but this is where I sit naturally, and I am very proud of myself. I never thought I would be confident enough to wear dresses or skirts, and take leadership roles to put myself out there and develop my social skills. I could never have done it without the support of my friends and family, and I urge everyone who wants to do right by themselves and change their diet - quitting sugar or otherwise - to share their decision with people. Develop a support network, online or offline, which can offer you advice or pick you up when you’re down. And I can assure you, from my own personal experience, your body will thank you, and you will thank yourself too.

Meanwhile, there are still some problems even if we don’t order take-away food. We sincerely hope our school will improve the service of the school canteen. Basically, there is a variety of food in our school canteen and the taste is acceptable. But it is super-crowded during lunch break, and many of us have to line up too long. Is it possible more windows will offer food? What’s worse, the food we can get after long-time waiting is cold in winter, which is far from satisfactory. Besides, we strongly advise our school to offer the night-time snacks. Most students have supper before five o'clock, so many of us, especially boys, feel hungry at night. Without night-time snacks, no wonder many students turn to instant noodles to satisfy our appetite at night, which is bad for health. To sum up, our school has made a right decision, while there is still room for improvement, which all students are looking forward to. Faithfully Yours Li Ming Tape script: I.

Like anything else, unless you have a natural talent, you have to practice at it. So, don’t get discouraged if your first try doesn’t come out like you had hoped; you can’t expect to get it perfectly the very first time. Keep trying and you should be a woodworking master in no time at all. If you’ve always wanted to get into woodworking but didn’t know how to go about it, you’re not alone. This is a pastime that many want to have, but don’t know what to do or what materials to use. If this is the case, all you have to do is to take a class on woodworking. If you think that you won’t be able to find a class on this art, you’re wrong. It’s more popular than you realize and classes are offered pretty much worldwide. So, check your phone book or look up classes on the internet for your specific city or country. The fees for this type of class will vary and are determined by the skill level and how long the class will run. If you’ve never tried your hand at woodworking before, start at the beginner level. Once you’ve been woodworking for a little while, you should attend one of the workshops held for people interested in this art. Once there, you will meet people that share your same interests and you will learn new ways at perfecting this craft. You should also look these workshops up on the internet and find out dates and locations so you can sign up. You will probably make new friends and increase your skill level at woodworking. What could be better than that? Questions: 11. What’s this passage mainly about? 12. Why should you take a class in woodworking? 13. Which of the following statements is TRUE? Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. In the United States, the debt levels of Americans have continued to increase since the 1980s. It was during this time that the use of credit cards greatly increased. Credit cards companies begin looking for different ways to market their products to consumers, and used such things as direct mail, commercials, and other marketing strategies. It was during the 1980s that consumers begin moving away from cash and checks into credit cards. The cause of this is often attributed to the start of the information age. As the use of computers became more widespread, credit cards quickly followed. It is estimated that the number of people using credit cards during this time surpassed those who were using checks and cash in a single year. Statistics show that the average American consumer owes about $9,000 in credit card debt. Many people have made the mistake of thinking that they are using their own money when they use credit cards to make purchases. It is easy to forget that this money is owned by the credit card companies, and they are simply allowing you to borrow it, with the promise you will pay it back. The average interest rate owed on credit cards in the US is about 14%. It is easy to view credit cards as being “easy money.” After all, you don't have to work for it, and it doesn't have the same effect on you that cash has. Statistics show that people have a tendency to spend the money of others much faster than their own. Though we live in an electronic age, being irresponsible with your credit cards is a great way to end up with a life time of headaches. Many high quality jobs now require you to have good credit, and it is difficult to get a house or a car if you have poor credit. This is why it pays to be responsible with how you manage your finances. It is best to stop borrowing money and use your own funds to make purchases. Questions:
