Passage One
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage. Each summer, no matter how pressing my work schedule, I take off one day exclusively for my son. We call it dad-son day. This year our third stop was the amusement park, where be discovered that he was tall enough to ride one of the fastest roller coasters (过山车) in the world. We blasted through face-stretching turns and loops for ninety seconds. Then, as we stepped off the ride, be shrugged and, in a distressingly calm voice, remarked that it was not as exciting as other rides he’d been on. As I listened, I began to sense something seriously out of balance. Throughout the season, I noticed similar events all around me. Parents seemed hard pressed to find new thrills for indifferent kids. Surrounded by ever-greater stimulation, their young faces were looking disappointed and bored. Facing their children’s complaints of “nothing to do“, parents were shelling out large numbers of dollars for various forms of entertainment. In many cases the money seemed to do little more than buy transient relief from the terrible moans of their bored children. This set me pondering the obvious question:“ How can it be so hard for kids to find something to do when there’s never been such a range of stimulating entertainment available to them?” What really worries me is the intensity of the stimulation. I watch my little daughter’s face as she absorbs the powerful onslaught (冲击) of arousing visuals and bloody special effects in movies.
Why do children immersed in this much excitement seem starved for more? That was, I realized, the point. I discovered during my own reckless adolescence that what creates excitement is not going fast, but going faster. Thrills have less to do with speed than changes in speed. I’m concerned about the cumulative effect of years at these levels of feverish activity. It is no mystery to me why many teenagers appear apathetic (麻木的) and burned out, with a “been there, done that” air of indifference toward much of life. As increasing numbers of friends’ children are prescribed medications-stimulants to deal with inattentiveness at school or anti-depressants to help with the loss of interest and joy in their lives-I question the role of kids’ boredom in some of the diagnoses. My own work is focused on the chemical imbalances and biological factors related to behavioral and emotional disorders. These are complex problems. Yet I’ve been reflecting more and more on how the pace of life and the intensity of stimulation may be contributing to the rising rates of psychiatric problems among children and adolescents in our society.
  21. The author tell surprised in the amusement park at fact that . A) his son was not as thrilled by the roller coasters ride as expected B) his son blasted through the turns and loops with his face stretched C) his son appeared distressed but calm while riding the roller coasters D) his son could keep his balance so well on the fast moving roller coasters
  22. According to the author, children are bored . A) unless their parents can find new thrills for them B) when they don’t have any access to stimulating fun games C) when they are left alone at weekends by their working parents D) even if they are exposed to more and more kinds of entertainment
  23. From his own experience, the author came to the conclusion that children seem to expect . A) a much wider variety of sports facilities B) activities that require sophisticated skills C) ever-changing thrilling forms of recreation D) physical exercises that are more challenging
  24. In Para 6 the author expresses his doubt about the effectiveness of trying to change children’s indifference toward much of life by . A) diverting their interest from electronic visual games B) prescribing medications for their temporary relief C) creating more stimulating activities for them
D) spending more money on their entertainment
  25. In order to alleviate children’s boredom, the author would probably suggest . A) adjusting the pace of life and intensity of stimulation B) promoting the practice of dad-son days C) consulting a specialist in child psychology D) balancing school work with extracurricular activities
Passage Two
Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage. It used to be that people were proud to work for the same company for the whole of their working lives. They’d get a gold watch at the end of their productive years and a dinner featuring speeches by their bosses praising their loyalty. But today’s rich capitalists have regressed (倒退) to the “survival of the fittest” ideas and their loyalty extends not to their workers or even to their stockholders but only to themselves. Instead of giving out gold watches worth a hundred or so dollars for forty or so years of word, they grab tens and even hundreds of millions of dollars as they sell for their own profit the company they may have been with for only a few years. The new rich selfishly act on their own to unfairly grab the wealth that the country as a whole has produced. The top 1 percent of the population now has wealth equal to the whole bottom 95 percent and they want more. Their selfishness is most shamelessly expressed in downsizing and outsourcing (将产品包给分公司做) because these business maneuvers don’t act to created new jobs as the founder of new industries used to do, but only out jobs while keeping the money value of what those jobs produced for themselves. To keep the money machine working smoothly the rich have bought all the politicians from the top down. The president himself is constantly leaving Washington and the business at the nation because he is summoned to “fundraising dinners” where fat cats pay a thousand or so dollars a plate to worm their way into government not through service but through donations of vast amounts of money. Once on the inside they have both political parties busily tearing up all the regulations that protect the rest of us from the greed of the rich. The middle class used to be loyal to the free enterprise system. In the past, the people of the middle class mostly thought they’d be rich themselves someday or have a good shot at becoming rich. But nowadays income is being distributed more and more unevenly and corporate loyalty is a thing of the past. The middle class may also wake up to forget its loyalty to the so-called free enterprise system altogether and the government which governs only the rest of us while letting the corporations do what they please with our jobs. As things stand, if somebody doesn’t wake up, the middle class is on a path to being downsized all the way to the bottom of society.
  26. It can be inferred from the first paragraph that people used to place a high value on
. A) job security B) bosses’ praise C) corporate loyalty D) retirement benefits
  27. The author is strongly critical of today’s rich capitalists for . A) not giving necessary assistance to laid-off workers B) maximizing their profits at the expense of workers C) not setting up long-term goals for their companies D) rewarding only those who are considered the fittest
  28. The immediate consequence of the new capitalists’ practice is . A) loss of corporate reputation B) lower pay for the employees C) a higher rate of unemployment D) a decline in business transactions
  29. The rich try to sway the policy of the government by . A) occupying important positions in both political parties B) making monetary contributions to decision-makers C) pleasing the public with generous donations D) constantly hosting fundraising dinners
  30. What is the author’s purpose in writing this passage? A) to call on the middle class to remain loyal to the free enterprise system B) to warn the government of the shrinking of the American middle class C) to persuade the government to change its curre
