  III.Reading Comprehension (30 points, 2points for each item)

  从下列每篇短文的问题后所给的四个选择项中选出一个最佳答案,并在答题卡上将相应的字母涂黑。

  Passage One

  Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.

  Most people sometimes feel lonely, but it usually only lasts between minutes and a few hours. This kind of loneliness is not serious. In fact, it is quite normal. For some people, thought, loneliness can last for years. Now researchers say there are three different types of loneliness.

  The first kind of loneliness is temporary. This is the most common type. It usually disappears quickly and does not require any special attention. The second kind, situational loneliness, is a natural result of a particular situation-for example, a family problem, the death of a loved one, or moving to new place. Although this kind of loneliness can cause physical problems, such as headaches and sleeplessness, it usually does not last for more than a year.

  The third kind of loneliness is the most severe. Unlike the second type, chronic (习惯性的) loneliness usually lasts more than two years and has no specific cause. People who experience habitual loneliness have problem socializing and becoming close to others. Unfortunately, many chronically lonely people think there is little or nothing they can do to improve their condition. Psychologists agree that one important factor in loneliness is a persons social contacts, e.g. friends, family members, coworkers, etc. We depend on various people for different reasons. For instance, our families give us emotional support, our parents and teachers give us guidance, and our friends share similar interests and activities with us. However, psychologists have found that, though lonely people may have many social contacts, they sometimes feel they should have more. They question their own popularity.

  Psychologists are trying to find ways to help habitually lonely people for two reasons: they are unhappy and unable to socialize and there is a connection between chronic loneliness and serious illness such as heart diseases. While temporary and situational loneliness can be a normal, healthy part of life, chronic loneliness can be a very sad, and sometimes dangerous, condition.

  21. What can we learn from the passage about temporary loneliness?

  A. It requires special attention.

  B. It is very common and usually disappears quickly.

  C. It is serious but it usually disappears quickly.

  D. It is as serious as chronic loneliness.

  22. Though lonely people may have many social contacts, ?

  A. they want to socialize with more people

  B. they still need others to guide them

  C. they still others to support them emotionally

  D. they want to question their own popularity

  23. What kind of loneliness can cause serious illness?

  A. Temporary loneliness

  B. Situational loneliness.

  C. Chronic loneliness.

  D. Short-term loneliness.

  24. Why do chronically lonely people need help?

  A. Because they have difficulty socializing and chronic loneliness can cause serious illness.

  B. Because chronic loneliness lasts more than two years.

  C. Because they think theres little they can do to improve their condition.

  D. Because they think they should have more social contacts.

  25. According to the passage, which of the following statements is true?

  A. Only a small number of people feel lonely.

  B. Like chronic loneliness, situational loneliness can cause physical problems.

  C. Chronically lonely people have no difficulty socializing and becoming close to others.

  D. All kinds of loneliness are very dangerous.

  Passage Two

  Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.

  Studies show that the world in 2010 will be more crowded, more polluted and less stable ecologically (在生态方面) than the world we live in now. Visible ahead is serious stress involving population, resources and environment. Despite greater food output, people in the world will be poorer in many ways than they are today.

  For hundreds of millions of the extremely poor, the outlook for food and other necessities of life will be no better. For many it will be worse.

  While the economies of the developing countries are expected to grow at a faster rate than those of the industrialized nations, the total national product per head in most less developed countries remains low. The existing gap between the rich and poor nations will further widen.

  World food production is estimated to increase by 90 percent from 1970 to 2010. Most of that increase goes to the countries that already have relatively higher per-head food consumption (消费)。 Meanwhile, per-head consumption of food in the developing countries will scarcely improve or will actually fall far below the present inadequate level. What is worse is prices for food are expected to double.

  As a result, many less developed countries will have increasing difficulties meeting energy needs. For the one quarter of mankind that depends primarily on wood for fuel, the outlook is not hopeful.

  Regional water shortage will become more severe. In the 1970-2010 period population growth will require twice as much water as it does today in nearly half the world. Still greater increases would be needed to improve standards of living. Development of new water supplies will become more costly.

  26. According to the passage, in 2010 while output of food will be greater, .

  A. people will have sufficient food supplies.

  B. The world resources will become more than enough

  C. In most developing countries people will have less food than they have today

  D. The living standards of the worlds population will improve greatly

  27. According to the author, in 2010 for many poor people, .

  A. things will get even worse

  B. things will be a little better

  C. it will be necessary for them to improve their housing

  D. it will be impossible to obtain enough necessities of life

  28. In the 1970-2010 period, the large proportion of global increase of food production goes .

  A. to 90 percent

  B. to developing countries

  C. to any country in the world that needs it

  D. to those countries that already have high per head consumption

  29. How does the author predict the development of new water supplies in the future?

  A. Water shortage will occur in some regions only

  B. Development of new water supplies will be more expensive.

  C. The less developed countries need more water than the developed ones.

  D. The demand for water will double with the growing population.

  30. Which of the following may best serve as the title of this passage?

  A. the Future problems in the World.

  B. Water and Air Pollution.

  C. Water and Food Shortages

  D. Food Production and Consumption

  Passage Three

  Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.

  The World Trade Organization (WTO), founded on January 1, 1995, aims to encourage international trade to flow as freely as possible, making sure that trade agreements are respected and that any disputes can be settled.

  In the five years since its founding, the WTO has become well known as one of the worlds most powerful economic organizations, taking its place alongside the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (国际货币基金组织)。

  The system of global rules for international trade, however, dates back half a century to 1948 when the General Agreement on Tariffs (关税) and Trade (GATT) was formed after World War II.

  As time went by, it became clear that the GATT had two major drawbacks-the limited areas of trade it covered, and the lack of an effective system to settle disputes.

  After seven years of trade talks ending in 1994, the so-called Uruguay Round (乌拉圭回合谈判) finally gave birth to the WTO, complete with an effective system to settle disputes and to form new rules covering trade in services and intellectual property.

  Even after seven years of talks and with 22,500 pages of agreements reached problems remained, especially in the difficult-to-deal-with areas of agriculture and services.

  31. What is the purpose of the WTO?

  A. To encourage international trade to flow freely.

  B. To make sure that trade agreements are respected.

  C. To settle any disputes.

  D. All of the above

  32. According to the passage ,the GATT stopped working_______.

  A. in 1948

  B. in 1994

  C. after World WarⅡended

  D. during the seven years of the Uruguay Round talk

  33.The WTO is better than the GATT in that_____.

  A. it can settle disputes in more areas of international trade

  B. it enables its members to sign agreements more easily

  C. it deals with problems in agriculture and services more effectively

  D. it pays more attention to service and intellectual property

  34.The word “drawbacks ”in Paragraph 4 means ______.

  A. Weak points

  B. Strong points

  C. Improvements

  D. Changes

  35. According to the last two paragraphs ,which of the following statements is true?

  A. The WTO is the worlds most powerful economic organization

  B. The GATT was founded in Uruguay in 1995

  C. The WTO has an effective system to settle disputes and to form new rules

  D. All the countries in the world are member nations of the WTO

  Ⅶ。Translation from English into Chinese(15 points)

  It is said that although water is essential for life, it costs nothing .On the other hand ,diamonds cost a lot ,yet they are essential for nothing .The world has changed greatly since an 18th century economist made the remark.

  What was true over 200 years ago is certainly no longer true now. In many countries ,people pay as much for water in their homes as they do for electricity.

  We neglect water when we have plenty -unless there are floods ,of course .Once there is a threat to our water supply ,however ,water can quickly become the only thing that matters. We know only too well that without water,there can be no life.

  The situation is now becoming so bad that scientists feel it may be necessary to shock the world into saving water the way oil crises caused people to save energy resources in the 1970s.
