Section B Passage One Not everybody reads the daily newspaper .People who don't read newspaper are sometimes referred to as non-readers . Early research has shown that the non-readers are generally low in education low in income either very young or very old .In addition non-readers are more likely to live in rural areas and have less contact with neighbours and friends .Other studies show that non-readers tend to isolate themselves from the community and less likely to own a home and seldom belong to local voluntary organizations Why don't these people read daily paper ? They say they don't have the time they prefer radio or TV they have no interest in reading a tale and besides they think newspapers are too expensive. Recent surveys however have indicated the portrait of the non-reader is more complicated than first thought .There appears to be a group of non-readers

First they are also adding news briefs and comprehensive indexes. This will help overcome the time problem. And they are also giving variety to newspaper content to help build the reader's interest.
  11. What is typical of non-readers according to early research?
  12. What are the finds of recent surveys?
  13. What are editors and publishers doing to attract the non-readers?
Passage Two Did you know that there's a kind of bird that can sew? This called the tailor bird uses its mouth as a needle. It sews leaves together in the shape of a cup then it adds a layer of straw to the inside of the cup and lays its eggs there. Each bird species builds its own special kind of nest. The most common materials used for nests are grasses branches and feathers. A bird must weave these materials into a nest. Just imagine building a house without cement or nails to hold together Another bird is called the weaver bird. The weaver bird builds a nest that looks like a basket the nest shaped like a pear with a hole in the middle. The hole is the door of the nest. A third bird is called the oven bird. The oven bird makes a nest that is very solid. The nest is made of mud. The oven bird forms the mud into the shape of an oven and then let it dry in the sun. The sun bakes the mud making it very hard. Not all birds make their homes in branches. Some birds build their nests on the ground while others bury their eggs under the ground. And some birds do not build nests at all. So when you look for nests and eggs in branches of the trees and bushes remember that some nests may be right your feet.
  14. What does the nest built by tailor bird look like ?

Passage Three You can tell the age of a tree by counting its rings but these records of trees' life really say a lot more. Scientists are using tree rings to learn what's being happening on the sun's surface for the last ten thousand years. Each ring represents a year of growth. As the tree grows it adds a layer to its trunk taking up chemical elements from the air. By looking up the elements in the rings for a given year scientists can tell what elements were in the air that year. Doctors Stevenson is analysing one element??carbon-14 in ring from both living and dead trees. Some of the rings go back almost ten thousand years to the end of the Ice Age. When Stevenson followed the carbon-14 trail back in time he found carbon-4 levels change with the intensity of solar burning. You see the sun has cycles. Sometimes it burns fiercely and other times it's relatively calm. During the sun's violent periods it throws off charged particles in fast moving strings called solar winds. The particles interfere with the formation of carbon-14 on earth. When there's more solar wind activity less carbon-14 is produced. Ten thousand years of tree rings show that the carbon-14 level rises and falls about every 420 years. The scientists concluded that the solar wind activity must follow the same cycle.

  18. What is the purpose of the scientists in studying tree rings ?
  19. What affects the amount of carbon-14 on earth ?
  20. What do we learn from the passage about the solar wind activity ? 2002 年 6 月大学英语四级考试试卷参考答案 月大学英语四级考试试卷

Reading this chart,we can find that the average number of hours a student spends on the computer per week has increased sharply.In 1990,it has less than 2 hours;and in 1995,it increased to almost 4 hours,and in 2000,the number soared to 20 hours. Obviously computers are becoming more and more popular.There are several reasons for this.First,computers facsilitate us in more aspects of life.Also,the fast developments of the Internet enlarges our demands for using computers.We can easily contact with friends in remote places through the Internet. Besides,the prices of computers are getting lower and lower,which enables more students to purchase them. However,there still exist some problems,such as,poor quality,out of date designs and so on.And how to balance the time between using computers and studying is also a serious problem. Anyhow,we will benefit a lot from computers as long as we use them
