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 In your car you may have a cell phone, a telephone also known as a mobile phone that you can carry around and use anywhere. On your way, you may feel coordinated and enjoy your hands-free phone talking while driving. But recent studies suggest that it isn’t the dialing or the arm waving that makes driving while talking on a cell phone dangerous. It is the yakking itself or more precisely, the continuous conversation with someone who isn't present that makes. David Strayer, a Utah psychologist, says “Your driving performance while talking on a cell phone is weakened at levels comparable to, or worse than, driving with a blood alcohol level of
  0.08,” which is the legal limit in most states of America. Using a driving-training simulator, Strayer and his colleagues compared the attention levels and response time of 110 drivers in various situations. In dense traffic, cell phone users were about 20 percent slower to respond to sudden hazards than other drivers, and they were about twice as likely to drive into the back of a braking car in front of them. "Cell phone drivers are obtaining less than 50 percent of the visual information that non-cell drivers are getting," says Strayer. "Looking and seeing are not one and the same." By contrast, the researchers found that listening to the radio or conversing with passengers is not as hazardous. "When a
dangerous situation arises, the driver and passengers put their conversation on pause," Strayer says. Whether talking with a passenger or someone on a cell phone, however, people are less able to recall the details of a conversation carried on while driving. "So it might not be good for your economic health to discuss investment strategies with your agent while either of you is driving." Strayer adds lastly.
  16. According to the recent studies, which of the following makes driving dangerous? A. A cell phone dialing by the driver. B. The driver's endless arm waving. C. The driver's continuous cell phone talking. D. The absence of another phone speaker.
  17. Which of the following does Strayer want to stress most? A. The driving performance may be weakened by a cell phone talking. B. The driving performance may be affected by a high blood alcohol level. C. Drivers are not to drive over the cell phone or after drinking. D. A cell phone talking is no less hazardous than alcohol in driving.
  18. The experiment shows all the following EXCEPT that. A. the cell phone drivers get less than half of the visual information B. the cell phone drivers are twice as likely to hit the front cars C. the cell phone drivers' response to sudden dangers is slower D. the 110 drivers were reluctant to take part in the experiments
  19. Strayer discourages drivers from talking, about business on cell phones while driving because. A. they tend to forget the details of a conversation B. both the driver and his agent happen to be driving C. it might not be good for the driver's memory D. the other passengers would overhear the conversation
  20. It can be inferred that the author's attitude toward cell phone yakking is. A. approving B. disapproving C. encouraging D. indifferent
Passage Two It's no great surprise that Bill Gates has decided to walk away from his day-to-day involvement with Microsoft, and use his full attention to oversee how
the Bill Gates Foundation spends its $ 16 billion on philanthropy, or charity. But Gates is not the first one to follow the path. Ever since the industrial revolution, wealthy self-made businessmen and businesswomen have felt a calling to create a legacy that goes beyond a profit and loss sheet. The saying "He who dies rich, dies disgraced" runs deeply through the business community. But out of all the great philanthropists, Mr. Gate’s career path appears to be closest to the oil millionaire John Rockefeller. Both were self-made men and both became the richest men on the planet. Rockefeller was in his late fifties when he turned his attention full time to philanthropy creating vast charitable foundations to promote health and education. Now Gates says he will do the same in his early fifties. "With great wealth comes great responsibility," he adds. Like Gates, many philanthropists do not want to pass on too much wealth to their children. They want them to be comfortable, with a nice house and some money in trust for their grandchildren. But they don't want to leave them millions and millions because they know how important it is for them to make their own way. In Britain, for instance, the newspaper rich lists are increasingly dominated by self-made millionaires, rather than inherited wealth. New money is less likely to be tied up in assets, making it ripe for philanthropy The appearance of the welfare state also had a great impact on attitudes to philanthropy. The state was saying it would take over much of the role of what was once regarded as the responsibility of private philanthropists.
  21. Bill Gates has done all the following EXCEPT. A. abandoning his career with Microsoft's daily business B. devoting the rest of his life to philanthropic causes C. leaving his children enough money for a comfortable life D. defying John Rockefeller in creating charitable foundations
  22. The saying "He who dies rich, dies disgraced" properly means that. A. the wealthy people should give away their fortunes after death B. the wealthy people should feel ashamed for-their assets C. the wealthy people should abandon their careers for charities D. it is shameful for the wealthy people to keep their wealth till death

  23. Gates and Rockefeller are similar in that. A. both of them inherited their wealth B. their career paths are exactly the same C. both decided to devote to charity in their fifties D. both made their fortunes in the same way
  24. Many wealthy people don't want to leave too much behind mainly because. A. it is not easy for them to make their fortunes B. they want their children to make their own way C. they just wish their children to have a comfortable life D. they hope to gain reputation by donating their wealth
  25. The chief reason why philanthropy has come into a good stage is that. A. the new money is less likely to be regarded as one's private wealth B. Gates will devote his full attention to philanthropy C. the welfare state would take over all the charity responsibilities D. many new millionaires are self-made rather than inherited Passage Three In 1991, when announced to be HIV positive, "Magic" Johnson became the face of a disease that the public still had a lot to learn about. The basketball star established the Magic Johnson Foundation that year and took a leading role on the public relations and fund-raising fronts in the fight against HIV and AIDS. Fifteen years later, there is still more work to do. “A lot of times, what happens is that the poster's not enough,”Johnson says, motioning to his likeness on the blackboard behind him. “So I have to get out and tell them myself, like I'm doing here today.” Johnson is now talking to an assembly at Boys and Girls High School in his neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y. The crowd is a few hundred students in a mostly black, working-class neighborhood. Thus event is the fourth of a 10-city speaking tour that is organized for minority communities. According to drug maker Abbot, half of the more than I million Americans living with HIV are black. African-American men are being diagnosed with the disease at a rate 10 times as high as that of white men. For women, the situation is even worse. The rate of diagnosis for African-American women is 23 times as high as that for their white counterparts. “Right now, we don't have a solution on how to combat it, so we're trying to do some different things than what has happened before,” Johnson
says. Getting the word out is what draws Johnson to black neighborhood high schools such as this one, and the message he brings with him is a practical one. “The safest sex is no sex,” he says. “But, in reality, we know only a certain number of people are going to hear that. Then I hit them with ‘Hey, if you're going to do it, you've got to protect yourself and your partner.’” Hopefully, by talking realistically instead of avoiding the issues, Johnson can help make the next generation of African-Americans less likely to have HIV and AIDS. “just try to be real with them,” he says. “They appreciate that.”
  26. The phrase “disease that the public still had a lot to learn about" here means a disease that. A. was already well-known then B. was too complicated for people C. was still too new to be understood D. killed too many victims then
  27. According to the passage, the group with the Highest ASS rate is. A. the white Americans B.African-American men C. the American women D. the black American women

  28.The speaker is named "Magic" Johnson because. A. he was once a famous basketball coach B. he was a happy survivor of the unhappy disease C. he was given chance to talk of his own experience D. he was a very practical and realistic person in life
  29. The word "combat" (Paragraph
  4) is closest in meaning to. A. comeback B. combine C. fight against D. avoid
  30. What is the purpose of Johnson's speech tour? A. To take himself as an example in fighting the disease. B. To raise the awareness of young Americans against the disease. C. To provide a better cure for the black American HIV sufferers. D. To try some new medical solutions on the HIV and AIDS sufferers. Passage Four Once upon a time all you needed for a camping trip was a sleeping bag, a compass and some common se
