Part I Reading Comprehension (40%)

Task 1

    Directions: Choose the best answer from the 4 choices:

    Air pollution can spread from city to city. It even spreads from one country to another. Some northern European countries have had black snow from pollutants that have traveled through the air from other countries and have fallen with the snow. So air pollution is globle problem.

    Air pollution can kill babies, older people, and those who have respiratory (呼吸的)diseases. As found in cities,air

    pollution increases the risks of certain lung diseases.

    Air pollution can cause both airplane and car accidents because it cuts down visibility. There are other possible health dangers from air pollution that we don’t know much about. For example, scientists are trying to find out whether

    chemicals that reach us from the air may cause changes in our cells. These changes might cause babies to be born with serious birth defects. Scientists are trying to learn how all the many chemicals we are apt?易于的,to take into our

    bodies from air, water, food and even medicines act together to affect our health and the way our bodies work. That is another reason why it is so important to begin to control pollution now instead of waiting until we learn all the answers.

    Air pollution costs us a lot of money. It corrodes (腐蚀) our buildings. It damages farm crops and forests. It has a

    destructive effect on our works of art. The cost of all this damage to our government is great. It would be much more worthwhile, both for us and for the government, to spend our tax dollars on air pollution control.

    C. visibility is reduced D. it brings a lot of black snow

    2. Scientists are tring to find a link between pollution and ______.

    B. the successful control of pollution

    C. when the atmosphere first became polluted

    D. how some snow becomes black

    4.The auther suggests that before air pollution becomes more serious _______.

     A. some factories should be forced to stop operating

     B. buildings should be protected

    C. more trees should be planted

Task 2

    Directions: Choose the best answer from the 4 choices:

    In ancient times the most important examinations were spoken, not written. In the schools of ancient Greece and Rome, testing usually consisted of saying poetry aloud or giving speeches.

    In the European universities of the Middle Ages, students who were working for advanced degrees had to discuss questions in their field of study with oeople who had made a special study of the subject. This custom exists today as part of the process of testing candidates (考生) for the doctors degree.

    Generally, however, modern examinations are written. The written examination, where all students are tested on the thsame questions, was probably not known until the 19 century. Perhaps it came into existence with the great increase in

    population and the development of modern industry. A room full of candidates for a state examination, timed exactly electic clocks and carefully watched over by managers, resembles a group of workers at an automobile factory. Certainly, during examinations teachers and students are expected to act like machines.

    One type of test is sometimes called an objective (客观) test. It is intended to deal with facts, not personal opinions.

    To make up an objective test the teacher writes a series of questions, each of which has only one correct answer. Along with each question the teacher writes the correct answer and also three statements that look like answers to students who have not learned the material properly.
