Task 2
Directions: There are 5 questions or unfinished statements after the passage. For each of them
            there are four choices marked A), B), C) and D). You should decide on the best choice
            and write the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.

       It has been a hot topic discussed heatedly for the time being that how indeed the media
          (                (
influence 影响) our teens 十几岁的青少年) Different people come up with different opinions.
                                                 .
The following passages are one of different comments given by several teenagers ranging from 15
to 20.
       Teens are the most influenced and the easiest to be influenced by the media. The media
influence the way they dress, talk and conduct themselves. From the latest trends to the coolest
stars, they imitate what they see, whether it’s Katie Holmes’s new haircut or the pink shirt that
Christina Aguilera wore. So it follows that more serious actions like carrying arms or doing drugs
could be copied as well.
       Young people are impressionable(易受影响的). Therefore, some request that the media
should take responsibility by changing some for content of their shows — especially those for
teens. They are huge consumers of media, so networks should show them respect by promoting
positive images. They think some shows confuse the lines between entertainment and life. The
producers know their audiences are young, so they should realize that teens watching “reality”
shows might not be able to tell the difference between foct and fiction.

46. The passage is probably intended to answer the question “__________?”
      A) How influential are the media on teens
      B) What different kinds of opinions do people have about the media
      C) Why are teens the most influenced and the easiest to be influenced by the media
      D) Who should take responsibility for teens’ copying behavior
47. According to the passage, the media influence teens in many ways EXCEPT in their
     __________.
      A) dress                                     B) talk
      C) action                                    D) study
48. If teens could separate fact from fiction, __________.
      A) they would imitate carrying arms and using drugs
      B) they would protect themselves from being influenced by violent programs
      C) they would learn how to behave well and how to behave badly at the same time
      D) they would no longer watch shows
49. The narrator seems to agree that __________.
      A) the media should pay attention to the content to their programs
      B) networks should write “People who are under 16 may not be allowed to go in”
      C) some shows should confuse the lines between entertainment and life
      D) people should keep teens out of the media
50. Obviously the writer feels __________.
      A) threatened                                B) encouraged
      C) heavyhearted                              D) disappointed

Task 3
Directions: Complete the table after reading the passage.

      Are you thinking of writing someone a letter? Call instead. It isn’t that expensive, especially
when you call during the evening, night, or weekend hours. In fact, you can make a ten-minute
call anywhere in the Continental United States for just $2.60.
      For even greater savings, always dial direct, that is, without an operator’s assistance. Rates
on direct calls are lower after five o’clock in the evening and lowest after eleven o’clock at night.
Collect, credit card, person-to-person, and pay phone calls require the services of an operator, and
they cost more than direct calls.
      Need to call out of the country? Now calls to many overseas locations may be dialed direct.
Check your telephone directory for overseas area codes.
      Next time you have good news, or you just want to stay in touch, remember, a phone call
means so much more than a letter. This has been a message from Southern Bell Telephone
Company.

If you want to save money, you’d better call during the evening, night, or (51)__________.
Direct calls are cheaper than calls (52) __________.
Rates on direct calls are lowest if you call (53) __________.
You can find out (54) __________ in your telephone directory.
Southern Bell Telephone Company suggests that if you want to keep in touch with your friends,
you (55) __________.

Task 4
Directions: After reading the passage, you are required to give brief answers to the 5 questions
            below.

      The term “generation gap” is used to mean differences in ideas, life styles and attitudes
                                                                    (
between older and younger people, differences which result in a lack 缺乏) of understanding and
lead to confrontations(对抗).
      The “generation gap” is one of the most widely discussed and controversial(引起争论的)
problems of recent years. Some people doubt whether such a gap exists. They don’t believe the
younger generation is set apart from the older generation by a wide gap. Many others, on the other
hand, insist a gap between parents and children is unavoidable and the generation gap today is
                                                                  (惊人的;
worse than ever before. The reason they give is that the tremendous          巨大的) explosion
of knowledge in the twentieth century has made life for young people so very different from life as
it was when their parents were young.

56. What will generation gap result in?
    It will result in _______________________________________________________.

      To learn English first try to go to the United States or another country where English is the
native language. Then find the best possible school and register. Try to take an intensive course, as
that is the fastest way to learn. Study hard and don’t sit next to students from your country. Speak
your native language as little as possible. Make American friends. Watch television, go to the
movies, and listen to the radio as much as possible. Go shopping and read the newspapers and
magazines. Above all, take every opportunity to practice your English. Don’t be afraid to make
mistakes.
