Part III Reading Comprehension (40 minutes, 40 points)
     Directions: There are 4 passages in this part. Each of the passages is followed by
5 questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are 4 choices marked A, B,
C and D. Choose the best one and mark your answer on the ANSWER SHEET with a single line
through the center.

Passage One
      Don't have time to read anymore ? Now you can get free, quick literature via email.
More than 100,000 people open their email each day to read a chapter of a book,

through Chapter-A-Day, an online book club created two years ago. It's a free email
service that provides a short daily reading for busy people, exposing them to literature
they may not find on their own, inspiring some to recommit to the reading habit. About
550 public library systems representing over 3,000 branch libraries already have signed
up to offer Chapter-A-Day. Via email, participants get about five minutes' worth of
reading every day. After three chapters are emailed, the installments stop, and those who
want to keep reading can borrow the book at their public library or purchase it online.
Chapter-A-Day has eight free book clubs, and sells thousands of books each month.
      Chapter-A-Day started in 1999 when Suzanne Beecher, a lifelong book lover,
realized how many of the women who worked part-time for her software development
company didn't have time in their busy lives to read. She decided to type part of a
chapter of a book, and send it to her employees through email. The next day she typed a
little more, and continued to send literary installments each day. She says she started
getting feedback from the staff about how reading made them feel. "They were
interested, and realized that, though they didn't have time in their busy lives for reading,
just reading that little bit each day got them back in the habit". Realizing that many
other people could benefit, she decided to take the idea even further and start an email
"chapter-a-day" book club to help others ease their way back into daily reading.
"Reading makes changes in people's lives." Beecher says.
      Pat Dempsey, a librarian at a public library in Ohio, has found Chapter-A-Day helps
her library clients get back in the habit of reading. "It's a different way to get people
hooked on books," she says.

 31. Chapter-A-Day is intended to help people _            _.
     A. get back into the habit of reading             B. relieve stress from office work
     C. find interesting books online                    D. buy books more conveniently
 32. The passage was written in         _.
     A. 1999              B. 2000              C. 2001                 D. 2002
 33. It can be inferred that through Chapter-A-Day _              _.
     A. public libraries have become crowded with readers
     B. MS Beecher made much money for her software company
     C. people begin to read very slowly and patiently
     D. people cannot finish reading any book online
 34. The word "installment" in the passage probably means “               ”.
     A. a library email    B. a rare piece of literature        C. a free novel     D. a part of a book

Passage Two
    Chicago Public Schools are going to great lengths to hire teachers—now the school
district recruits teachers from other countries to help solve a shortage of teachers. It all
started in 1999,when Rouses Hannon, a math and physics teacher from Palestine(巴勒
斯坦),visited Chicago. He read about the teacher shortage at Chicago Public Schools
and asked the school board if they’d hire him. The board was interested and decided to
create a special program for foreign-born teachers like Hannon, and he was the first
teacher hired.
    The program is called the Global Educator Outreach or GEO, and it’s a partnership
between in Chicago is so extreme, the Government allows the school district to
temporarily hire foreign teaching candidates using H1-B visas. The Government grants
these vise only to skilled foreign-born citizens so they can work in highly specialized
jobs that can’t be filled with available U.S. workforce.
    Through the GEO, the school district has hired dozens of teachers from 22 different
countries. Applicants must pass an English language test and specialize in math, science,
world language or bilingual(双语的) education. Hannon and the first GEO teachers
started in the classroom at the beginning of the 2000-2001 school year.
    What do the GEO teachers think of the American classroom? Hannon, who was
hired to teach math at Gage Park High School, says classrooms in Chicago are very
different from those in Palestine. For one thing, he says, the fixed schedule that forces
students to attend the same classes at the same time each day becomes too dull. In
Palestine, the class schedule changes each week. He says in Palestine, the culture forces
students to work hard because if they don’t they’ll be kicked out and put in vocational
schools, which limits their career options. There is not nearly as much pressure for
American students to do well. He says he has to do double the amounts of work just to
get his students interested.

36. Chicago Public Schools began to employ foreign teachers because              .
   A. there were not enough American teachers       B. a program for foreign teachers was started
   C. the school board was interested in foreign teachers
   D. foreign teachers taught better than American teachers
37.The American Government is involved in the program because                .

    A. the schools are public schools                   B. tile Government is to finance the program
    C. the Government grants visas to the foreign teachers
    D. the program involves bilingual education

Passage Three
      Workforce is defined as the total number of people who are available to work and
earn incomes. The definition includes everyone who is employed or seeking paid
employment, so it includes employers and the self-employed.
      Although the size of the workforce depends a great deal on the size of the total
population, there are several other influences which also affect it. The age distribution
of the total population has a very marked effect on the available workforce. If the
population has a high proportion of very young people or of those too old to work, then
the available workforce would be lower than if there were an evenly spread age
distribution. If the population grows rapidly from natural increase, i.e., the number of
births greatly exceeds the number of deaths, then as the total population increases, the
proportion in the workforce declines.
      Sometimes a population is described as aging, which means that the birth rate is
either falling or growing very slowly, and as people retire from the workforce, there are
not enough young people entering it to replace those who are leaving it. The population
is top-heavy with older people. So the percentage of the population in the workforce
declines when there is either a rapid increase in births or a falling birth rate.
    The age distribution of the population has several important effects on the economy.
If the population is aging and there is an increase in the number of people retiring
without a corresponding increase in the number entering the workforce, this raises the
problem of the ability of the economy to provide a reasonable level of social services to

the retired group. If the aged are to be cared for in special homes or hotels, finances
must be available for that purpose. If the size of the workforce is small relative to the
total population, then the government tax receipts are relatively low and either the
government has less money available to it or the workforce members have to be taxed
more heavily.

41. Workforce is composed of               .
   A. both the employed and the self-employed              B. people employed to work for others
   C. both employers and employees                   D. people available to work and earn incomes
42. The factor that does not influence the size of the workforce is            .
   A. the size of the total population              B. the age distribution of a population
   C. the national economy                          D. the natural population growth
43. It can be concluded from Paragraph 2 that               .
   A. a population growth leads to a greater proportion of workforce
   B. a large population does not necessarily mean a high proportion of workforce
   C. the size of the aged determines the proportion of workforce
   D. the proportion of the very young determines the size of workforce

44. The size of the workforce declines when                .
   A. many people reach the retiring age                          B. the birth rate falls rapidly
   C. the number of retirees exceeds that of new workers          D. the death rate increases
45. The last paragraph focuses on               .
   A. the factors that influence the workforce structure
   B. the importance of workforce distribution to the economy
   C. the relationship between age distribution and economy
   D. the influence of population growth on the national economy

Passage Four
      Honesty is the best policy, as the English saying goes. Unfortunately, honesty often
deserts us when no one is watching. British psychologists reported last week.
      Researchers at UK's Newcastle University set up an experiment in their psychology
department's coffee room. They set a kettle, with tea, coffee and milk on the counter and
hung up a sign listing the prices for drinks. People helping themselves to a cup of drink
were supposed to put a few cents in the box nearby. The scientists hung a poster above
the money box, and it changed each week between images of gazing eyes and pictures
of flowers. The researchers found that staff paid 2.76 times mole for their drinks when

the image of the eyes was hung. "Frankly we were shocked by the size of the effect."
said Gilbert Roberts, one of the researchers.
      Eyes are known to be a powerful perceptual (感官的) signal for humans. "Even
though the eyes were not real, they still seemed to make people behave more honestly."
said Melissa Bateson, a behavioral biologist and leader of the study.
      Researchers believe the effect sheds light on our evolutionary past. It may arise
from behavioral features that developed when early humans formed social groups to
strengthen their chances of survival. For social groups to work, individuals had to
co-operate, rather than act selfishly. "There's an argument that if nobody is watching us,
 it is in our interests to behave selfishly. But when we're being watched we should
 behave better. So people see us as co-operative and behave the same way towards us."
 Bateson said.
       The new finding indicates that people have a striking response to eyes. That might
 be because eyes and faces send a strong biological signal we have evolved to respond to.
 The finding could be put to practical use, too. For example, images of eyes could
 increase ticket sales on public transport and improve supervision systems to prevent
 antisocial behavior.

 46. The experiment conducted in Newcastle University shows that                   .
     A. people enjoy free drinks more than paid ones
     B. most people are dishonest if nobody is watching
     C. people like pictures of flowers more than pictures of eyes
     D. people are more honest when watched by pictures of eyes
 47. Gilbert Roberts was shocked because                .
     A. so many people had participated in the experiment
     B. so many of the participants were dishonest
     C. the effects of the pictures of flowers and gazing eyes were so different
     D. the effects of eyes and other perceptual signals were so powerful
48. The phrase "sheds light on" in Paragraph 4 probably means “             ”.
     A. hints at        B. makes clearer              C. points to            D. further proves
49. According to the passage, early humans                  .
   A. were less selfish than the present-day people             B. were more co-operative in nature
   C .had lo be co-operative to survive         D. had to behave better than the present-day people
50. Images of eyes could be put up in the following places EXCEPT                      .

        German zoologist Randolf Menzel says bees aren't as busy as people believe they
are. “Bees are not particularly        51 . Instead they sleep a lot and are lazy. They
spend      52 _ 80 per cent of the night sleeping. Even during the day they often fly
to the nest     53     they rest their wings,” said Menzel, a zoologist at the Free
University in Berlin, who has studied bees for four decades. But to             54       for their
apparent laziness, they are actually very intelligent. They are         55      learners and
able to recognize various smells.
         Menzel said bees' learning, like       56     of many animals, was based on a
reward system. "If a bee is rewarded once for something, it remembers it for a week.
But if it is rewarded three times, it will remember it for its     57         lifetime." said
Menzel. He last week was awarded a            58     by the German Zoological Society.
        The memory capacity of bees means they can _ 59           among more than 50
different smells to find the they want. "What is interesting is that what smells good
to a bee, is also a    60      smell for humans,” said Menzel.
