Ⅲ。 Reading Comprehension（30 points， 2 points for each item）
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.
Pigs， fishponds and crops-all housed in tall buildings. This is a vision of industrial farming in the Netherlands（荷兰）。 In a world concerned about the environment and transport， would it not make sense to concentrate food production next to a harbor and an airport？ And since humans can live in tall buildings， why not pigs and fish？
The creative minds behind a government report suggest just this for a site at Rotterdam（鹿特丹） very close to mainland Europe‘s largest port.
The scale is vast： imagine 10 football fields， six floors of equal area， at total of 500 acres（英亩） stretching skywards. The building， known as Deltapark， visualizes 300，000 pigs， 1. 2 million chickens， tens of thousands of fish and a giant vegetable growing area all under one roof. The pigs could enjoy more space than on an average pig farm， and end their days in the slaughterhouse downstairs. Space without daylight in the giant building could be used for cultivating mushrooms（蘑菇） which grow well in the dark.
Higher up， greenhouses full of tomatoes and flowers， grown in nutrient solutions collected from elsewhere in the building， would profit from the light. The system is theoretically a complete farming cycle， with one activity feeding another and everything being recycled.
Deltapark is to be run by managers， not farmers. It has nothing to do with agriculture as we now know it， and so far， only exists on paper. But the idea has created a heated debate in the Netherlands and attracted attention abroad.
21. According to the passage， a multi-story farm ______ in the Netherlands.
A. is under construction
B. is about to be put to use
C. has been proposed
D. might cause severe criticism

B. Deltapark has a floor space of 500 acres.
C. Deltapark has six floors.
D. Deltapark is on a steep slope.
23. What is the meaning of “slaughterhouse” in Line 5， Paragraph 3？
A. A house where animals are fed.
B. A house where animals are kept in the daytime.
C. A place where animals stay for the night.
D. A place where animals are killed for food.
24. It is supposed in Paragraph 4 that ______.
A. the flowers would be nourished by liquids gathered outside the building

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.
A few years ago I was shopping with a friend and his 12-year-old daughter in downtown San Francisco. A street musician， whom my friend happened to know from his own musician days， was playing the saxophone（萨克斯管） on a street corner. His name was Clifford， and he had attracted a large crowd with his performance. After he finished， my friend introduced him to me and his daughter. Clifford asked her if she played any instrument. When she replied that she was taking trumpet（小号） lessons and played in her junior high school band， he said， “That‘s fine， little lady. Learn your instrument well and you can play anything. ”
Somehow these simple yet wise words struck me as appropriate not only for a trumpet player but also for a reader. If you learn to read well， you can read anything you want-not just newspapers and magazines， but more difficult material like philosophy， file criticism， military history-whatever interests you as your confidence grows. You would not be limited in any way. If you have the vocabulary-or at least a good dictionary near at hand-you can pick up a book， concentrate on it， and make sense of the author‘s words.
In the United States， reading instruction often ends at elementary school， so students sometimes have difficulty as they progress through school. They must take their assignments armed only with their elementary school reading skills. The result， too often， is frustration and loss of confidence. And the assigned reading in your college courses will be even greater than they were in high school. Developing Reading Skills is designed to accomplish several tasks ： to show you the skills that will enable you to read with greater comprehension， to help you cope with reading assignments with confidence， and to teach you to become an active reader.

A. Clifford was good at playing the saxophone.
B. The author‘s friend was once a street musician.
C. The 12-year-old girl played the trumpet very poorly.
D. Clifford was a good music teacher.
28. “Struck … as appropriate” in Line 1， Paragraph 2 most probably means ______.
A. seemed to be appropriate
B. proved to be appropriate
C. happened to be appropriate
D. found to be appropriate
29. With good reading skills， you can ______.
A. understand anything you read without difficulty
B. work out the author‘s meaning if only you concentrate on the book
C. understand what you read with the help of a good dictionary
D. concentrate on whatever you read

A. is directed to elementary school students

D. aims at helping students read better
Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.
If you asked people today why they used the telephone to communicate with their friends or why they turned to the television for entertainment， they would look at you as if you were crazy. We don‘t think about a telephone or a television or a car as being rare. These things have become such an essential part of life that they are no longer noticed， let alone remarked upon.
In the same way， within a decade no one will notice the Worldwide Web（互联网）。 It will just be there， an essential part of life. It will be a reflex to turn to the Web for shopping， education， entertainment and communication， just as it is natural today to pick up the telephone to talk to someone.
There is an enormous interest in the Web. Yet it is still in its infancy（婴儿期）。 The technology and the speed of response are leaping forward. This will move more and more people to the Web as part of their everyday lives. Eventually ，everyone‘s business card will have an electronic mail address. Every lawyer， every doctor and every business-from large to small -will be connected.
To predict that it will take over ten years for these changes to happen is probably pessimistic（悲观的）。 We usually overestimate what we can do in two years and underestimate what we can do in ten. The Web will be as much a way of life as the car by 2008. probably before.
31. What is implied in Paragraph 1？
A. Only mad people would ask questions about telephones， TV sets and cars.
B. We don‘t usually ask people why they use the telephone， television and car.
C. Today televisions and cars are no longer as important as they used to be.
D. In some places， the telephone， television and car are still rare things.

A. have become part of people‘s everyday life

Ⅶ。 E-C Translation（15 points）
Today， growing numbers of people are changing careers or getting second starts in careers that have greater attraction to them. Motives or reasons for changing careers vary widely， but may people move because they feel bored. For some， a second start grows out of the realization that what they want out of life is not what they are doing， and they decide to do those things they enjoy and believe to be important. Certainly， time spent in one occupation is likely to narrow the range of later occupational choices； very few people start a completely new career in mid-life. Most people move to a related field that involves a minimum of training.？
