      Coming home from school that dark winter day so long ago, I was filled with excitement of having
the weekend off. But I was   36   into stillness by what I saw. Mother, seated at the far end of the sofa, was
37 , with the second-hand green typewriter on the table. She told me that she couldn’t        38   fast and then
she was out of work. My shock and embarrassment at finding Mother in tears was a perfect proof of how
39 I understood the pressure on her.    Sitting beside her on the sofa, I began very slowly to understand. “I
guess we all have to   40 something,” Mother said quietly. I could      41 her pain and the tension of 42
the strong feeling that were interrupted by my 43. Suddenly, something inside me turned. I reached out and
put my arms 43 her. She broke then. She put her face          44 my shoulder and sobbed. I held her          45
and didn’t try to talk. I knew I was doing what I should do, what I could and that was    46 . At that moment,

my mother, 49 she was something           50 , a person like me, capable of fear,       51 and failure. I could

  A week later Mother took a job selling dry goods at half salary the radio station 53 . “It’s a job I can do,

                                                         A
Nowadays more and more foreign enterprises and companies are no longer relying on interviews for
employment Years of studying interviewing have made it clear that it is not a very objective (客观地)
process. Personnel officers often hire the person they like best, or even the one they think most physically
attractive. Looking good is no guarantee (保证) of doing the job well, however. Uglies or those who are
aesthetically (审美地) challenged, lose heart.
    To get a more objective view, many companies are also using psychological tests to hire both relatively
daily jobs and for positions at senior levels of management. It is impossible to say how many employers
use tests, but estimates of test sales in the UK for 2004 were over 1.5 million pounds.
    The basic reason employers use tests is clear: tests claim (声称) to be scientific and objective. A large
body of research has shown that interviews by themselves are not very reliable as a method of selection.
People’s judgments are often very subjective: whether they like the look of someone counts for more than
almost anything else. But reliable and valid (有效的) effective tests can offer rapid and more objective


                             高二英语下期初试卷                       第4 页        共 6 页
information about a would-be employee. If a candidate talks well in an interview but his test results suggest
that he is a careless person who can’t concentrate, an employer is likely to think twice about hiring him.
   Taking a serious test for a job is rather different from taking a game-like test. You can spend just a little
in answering questions of that kind of test, and you deny the answers and say they are not accurate. But you
can’t go to a serious test without enough preparation since you can’t afford to be denied and removed again
and again.
56. In the past, who would be sure to be employed after an interview?
   A. The person who was well educated.
   B. The person who has great abilities.
   C. The person who was physically attractive.
   D. The person who was appreciated by the personnel officer.
57. According to the passage, the underlined part “those who are aesthetically challenged” in the first
   paragraph refers to those who are ______.
   A. thought to be good-looking.           B. most likely to do the job well.
   C. not attractive for their appearance. D. given the job of interviewing the candidate.
58. Many companies use psychological tests ______.
   A. to take the place of interviews.
   B. to select senior level clerks.
   C. to make the employment difficult for candidate.
   D. to get really reliable and fair information about candidates.
59. From the last paragraph, we can conclude that while taking a serious test for a job, ____.
   A. you can not treat it as a game.
   B. you can deny the answers.
   C.you can say the answers are not accurate.
   D. you needn’t make much preparation.
                                                      B
     “Super Girls”, a TV program as China’s answer to American Idol, has caught attention of hundreds of
millions of Chinese TV viewers, and made its top 10 candidates stars overnight across the country.
     With the full name: “Happy China 2005 Super Girls” the real-life singing show from Hunan TV ended
on August 26, when the ranking of the final top three singers were decided. Ever since the program first
started in March, it has become more and more popular.
     The popularity has been reflected in the number of votes by mobile text messages the top three singers
received. Li Yuchun, the champion, got 3.5 million votes. Zhou Bichang, runner-up, got 3.2 million votes,
and even Zhang Liangying, who ranked third, got more than a million votes by SMS. The end of the show
is the start of many follow-on: “Super Girls”activities , which include an album (唱片集) featuring the
most popular candidates, live promotional appearances for the album in Beijing, and planned concert tours
in October.
     Many people consider the program to be the most important event on the Chinese entertainment scene
this year. Some even say it is the biggest thing to have happened to Chinese TV since the Spring Festival
Eve Variety Show in 1983.

                                    C
     A few years ago, a pilot had to have perfect eyesight and a college degree if he or she wanted to land a
job with an American airline. But today, airlines have quitted some requirements because they can’t find
enough qualified pilots.
     Airlines must hire up to 62,000 new pilots in the next decades. But qualified pilots are few in the
United States. Every year there are more planes being flown. At the same time, 12 to 16 foreign countries
are recruiting (招募) American pilots.
     As a result, pilots are earning spectacular (惊人的) salaries. The going rate for skilled pilots is well
over $180,000 a year. Some pilots can earn about $320,000 plus free housing working for foreign airlines.
     Because of the shortage, some people say unqualified pilots are being allowed to fly planes. They fear
the number of crashes will increase. Each year, more and more pilots with less than 2,000 hours of
experience are being hired. Airlines are also bringing on board many more pilots whoa re older than 50,
although law requires pilots to retire at the age of 60.



                               高二英语下期初试卷                     第6 页          共 6 页
     Being an airline pilot is a difficult job that requires people to make life and death decisions under
pressure. Some pilots crack (崩溃) under the pressure.
   The military is also having a hard time keeping pilots. Air Force pilots have to spend at least six years
in the Air Force. The Air Force invests (投资) millions of dollars to train each pilot, so it doesn’t want to
lose them.
     Experts say this problem is going to get a lot worse. Congress may organize a research group to study
the country’s pilot needs. In the meantime, salaries of pilots will continue to rise and the number of crashes
may keep pace.
65. What can we learn from the passage?
   A. A shortage of pilots is caused by airlines and the military.
   B. There have been more crashes because pilots have worse eyesight and higher salaries.
   C. A shortage of pilots may lead to more crashes.
   D. Airlines should hire more pilots even if they are unqualified.
66. What does a pilot no longer need today?
   A. Perfect eyesight.          B. Military training.
   C. Two college degrees        D.Flying experience.
67. Air Force pilot have to stay in the Air Force for a certain period of time because the Air Force ______.
   A. is a good place to work in.         B. pays more than airlines.
   C.has a hard time keeping pilots.      D. spends a lot of money training them.
68. Some people won’t be good pilots because _______.
   A. they can’t make right decisions quickly.
   B. They don’t earn spectacular salaries.
   C. they aren’t recruited by foreign airlines.
   D. the number of crashes keeps pace with the pilots’ salaries.
                          D
   CHINA and India possesses the global might and energy to transform the 21st-century economy. What
makes the two giants (巨人) especially powerful is that they complement (补充) each other’s strengths.
   Technical and managerial skills in both China and India are becoming more important than cheap labor.
   China will stay the most important place in mass manufacturing (制造业). India is a rising power in
software, design, services and precision (精密) industry.
   Business exchanges have increased lately between China and India. They are also among the fastest
growing economics.
   The Chinese Ministry of Commerce say China-India trade grew seven times between 2000 and 2004,
reaching US$ 13.6 billion last year. Many analysts predict it will hit US$ 30 billion by 2010. This raises a
provocative (煽动性的) question: What if the two nations are combined into one giant “Chinadia”?

   One hundred and thirteen million Americans have at least one bank-issued credit card (信用卡). They
give their owners automatic (自动的) credit in stores, restaurants, and hotels, at home, across the country,
and even abroad, and they make many banking services available as well. More and more of these credit
cards can be read automatically, making it possible to withdraw (取回) or deposit money in different
locations, whether or not the local branch bank is open. For many of us the “cashless society” is not on the
horizon---it’s already here.
     While computers offer these conveniences to consumers, they have advantages for sellers too.
Electronic cash registers can do much more than simply ring up sales. They can keep a wide range of
records, including who sold that, when and to whom. This information allows businessmen to keep track of
their list of goods by showing which items are being sold and how fast they are moving. Decisions to
reorder or return goods to suppliers can then be made. At the same time theses computers record which
hours are busiest and which employees are the most efficient, allowing personnel and staffing assignments
(人员安排) to be made accordingly. And they also identify preferred customers for promotional campaigns,
computers are relied on by manufacturers for similar reasons. Computer- analyzed marketing reports can
help to decide which products to emphasize (强调) now, which to develop for the future, and which to drop.

Computers keep track of goods in stock, of raw materials on hand, and even of the production process
itself.
      Many other commercial enterprises, from theatres to magazine publishers, from gas and public utilities
(公用事业) to milk processors, bring better and more efficient services to consumers through the use of
computers.

Dear editor,

       I'm writing to tell you what happened to Xiao Zhang, a taxi driver and an

American couple. One day, Xiao Zhang, the taxi driver was taking the American

couple to a holel. When they got there, the couple paid Xiao Zhang and waved

goodbye to him. Later, Xiao Zhang found a handbag on the back seat. He

opened the bag, finding some money and two pass ports. So he quickly drove

back to the hotel. With the help of a receptionist, he managed to return the bag to

the couple. The couple were very thankful to him.

       I am deeply moved by the driver's noble deed. As a student, we should

learn from what Xiao Zhang did. To be honest is the most important in our

society. If everyone is always ready to help others, our society will become

more harmonious.
