Part ? Reading Comprehension

     Directions: This part is to test your reading ability. There are 5 tasks for you to fulfill. You should read the reading materials

     carefully and do the tasks as you are instructed.

Task 1

    It is clear that some people who participate in exercise training will develop injuries to their bones, muscles, and joints (关节).

    Despite unfounded reports in the mass media of extremely high injury rates among adult exercisers, there have been few good studies of exercise injuries in populations. One of the difficulties in performing such studies has been the need to identify both the number of cases and the number of people at risk for injury. In other words, it is difficult to know the number of individuals injured and the total number of individuals exercising in the population. But these two figures are necessary in order to calculate (统计) true injury

    rates. Normally, injury is defined as an accident that causes a person to stop exercising for at least one week. The best available studies on injury rates show that about 25 to 30 percent of adult runners become "injured" (based on the above definition) over the course of a year. More serious injuries include those for which the injured person seeks medical care. If only they are considered, injury rates are much lower, perhaps in the range of 1 percent per year.

     Little is known about the causes of exercise injuries. One factor that has been linked to injury is the amount of exercise; for example, individuals who run more miles are likelier to be injured than those who run fewer miles. Factors such as age, sex, body type, and experience have not been shown to be associated with risk of injury. It seems logical that structural abnormalities, sudden increases in training intensity, and types of equipment used are likely to be related to injury risk. However, data to support these opinions are not available.

    36 What is the writer's attitude towards high injury rates among adult exercisers reported by the mass media?

     A. Positive. B. Indifferent. C. Negative. D. Reserved.

37 The true injury rates are obtained from ______.

     A. the average number of injuries for each individual

     B. the amount of exercises for each individual

     C. the numbers of the injured and all individuals in training

    D. the numbers of people doing exercises and those stopped

    exercises for one week

    38 Which of the following is NOT shown as the factor for causing exercise injuries?

     A. The amount of exercise.

     B. The age, sex and body type.

     C. Structural abnormalities.

     D. The sudden increases in training intensity.

    39 The factors that are in relation to exercises injuries ______.

     A. have been obtained from many good studies

     B. have been confirmed by many data

     C. cannot confirm the risk of equipment types

     D. can be proved easily by the data through calculation

40 The passage is mainly about ______.

     A. the high injury rates for those doing exercises

     B. the ways to avoid exercise injuries

     C. the evidences for the seriousness of exercise injuries

     D. the studies about injury rates and causes for injuries

Task 2

    Some people argue that self-plagiarism (自我剽窃) is impossible by

    definition because plagiarism is theft and people cannot steal from their own work. But, this is not correct in law. And there are circumstances, such as insurance fraud (保险欺), etc., when it is

    possible to steal from oneself.

     Self-plagiarism, however, must be carefully distinguished from the recycling of one's work that to a greater or lesser extent everyone legally does. Self-plagiarism in academic (学术的) publications is a

    gray area. However, many universities indirectly recognize the practice as deceptive. They publish rules preventing students from handing in basically the same essay for credit in different courses.

    There are also rules against someone handing in the same graduate thesis to different universities. Among established academics, self-plagiarism is a problem. It means basically the same article or book is handed in on more than one occasion for salary raising or promotion.

     Like all plagiarism the essence of self-plagiarism is the author' attempts to cheat the reader. This happens when no indication is given that the work is being recycled or when an effort is made to disguise the original text. For example, an author just makes cosmetic changes to make the same article, chapter, or book look different. But actually it remains unchanged in its central argument. In this case, disguising a text occurs. Authors change such things as paragraph breaks, capitalization, or the substitution of technical terms in different languages. What he has done is to make readers believe they are reading something completely new. This practice is self-plagiarism.

    41 In the second sentence of the first paragraph, "this" refers to ______.

     A. all the activities about plagiarism

     B. the activities of self-plagiarism

     C. the argument for the impossibility of self-plagiarism

     D. the argument for the possibility of self-plagiarism

    42 Which of the following is NOT true about self-plagiarism in academic publications?

     A. It is impossible when one recycles his / her work at such extent as everyone legally does.

     B. It is a clearly defined area especially in universities~

     C. Handing in the essentially same essay for credit in different courses belongs to it.

     D. Many universities are strongly opposed to it.

    43 According to the passage, ______ is the essence of self-plagiarism.

     A. the writer's pursuit for money or promotion

     B. the writer's laziness at his / her work

     C. the writer's deception on himself

     D. the writer's deception on the reader

    44 The word "cosmetic" in the last paragraph means ______.

     A. beautiful B. detailed C.

    surface D. general

    45 Which of the following does NOT belong to self-plagiarism?

     A. No indication about the recycling of the work.

     B. Disguising the original work by making small changes.

     C. Indication about the small changes in the work.

     D. Substitution of technical terms in two different languages.

Task 5

    Complaining about faulty goods or bad service is never easy. First of all, complaints must be made to a responsible person. Go back to the shop where you bought the goods, taking with you any receipt you may have and ask to see the owner.

     If you don't want to do it in person, write a letter. Stick to the facts and keep a copy of what you write. At this stage you should give any receipt numbers, but need not give receipts or other documents to prove you bought the article. If you are dissatisfied with the answer you get, write to the managing director of the firm or shop. Be sure to keep copies of your own letters and any answers you receive.

     If your complaint is a just one, the shopkeeper may offer to replace the faulty article. You may have the right to refuse the goods and ask for a refund, but this is only where you have hardly used the goods and have acted at once. And if you have suffered some special loss, for example, a new washer tears your clothes, you might claim money to replace them. If the shopkeeper offers you a credit note to buy goods in the same shop but you would rather have money back, say so. If you accept a credit note, remember that later you won't be able to get refunded. In case the shop owner refuses to refund, approach your Citizens' Advice Bureau before you accept a credit note.
