questions or incomplete statements. For each of them there are 4 choices marked
A, B, C and D. You should decide on the best choice, and mark the
corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.
Passage One
A wealthy Persian Prince loved good stories. The older he grew,the fonder he became
of them. But he always regretted they had to have an end. So he decided to give half his
wealth and his beautiful daughter to the man who could tell him a story without an end.
Anybody who failed would be sent to prison for life. The risk was so great that nobody came
to the palace to tell the Prince a story for a whole year. Then one day a tall, handsome young
man came and said he wanted to tell a story that would go on forever. The prince agreed but
warned him what would happen if he failed. “The risk is worth the head of your fair
daughter, ” the young man replied poetically(得体地). He then began this well-known
story:
“Once upon a time there was a certain King who feared famine. So he ordered his men
to build an enormous storehouse, which he filled with corn. Then, when it was up, made
water-proof and made fire-proof, the King felt happy. But one day he noticed a small hole in
the roof and as he looked at it, a locust came out with a grain of corn. A minute later, another
locust came out with another grain of corn. Then a third locust with another grain of corn.
Then a fourth locust, flying at great speed, pushed through the hole and came out with two
grains of corn. Then a fifth locust came and …”
“Stop” shouted the Prince. “I can’t,” answered the young man. “I must go on until I tell
you what happened to each grain of the corn.” “But that will go on for ever.” The Prince
protested. “Exactly” the young man replied, and he smiled as he turned towards the Prince’s
beautiful young daughter.

  41. The Prince always felt regretted about story because .
A. he had too much wealth
B. there was terrible famine
C. all stories have ends
D. there was no story-teller

D. for a year

D. a waterproof kitchen

  45. The thing the king noticed first in the roof was .
A. a loaf
B. a small hole

Passage Two
Packaging is an important form of advertising. A package can sometimes motivate
someone to buy a product. For example, a small child might ask for a breakfast food that
comes in a box with a picture of a TV character. The child is more interested in the picture
than in the breakfast food. Pictures for children to color or cut out, games printed on a
package, or small gifts inside a box also motivate many children to buy products or to ask
their parents for them.
Some packages suggest that a buyer will get something for nothing. Food products sold
in reusable containers are examples of this. Although a similar product in a plain container
might cost less, people often prefer to buy the product in a reusable glass or dish, because
they believe the container is free. However, the cost of the container is added to the cost of
the product.
The size of a package also motivates a buyer. Maybe the package has “Economy Size”
printed on it. This suggests that the large size has the most product for the least money. But
that is not always true. To find out, a buyer has to know how the product is sold and the price
of the basic unit.
The information on the package should provide some answers. But the important thing
for any buyer to remember is that a package is often an advertisement. The words and
pictures do not tell the whole story. Only the product inside can do that.

  46. Which of the following statements could best summarize the main idea of the
passage?
A. Children are interested in some packages of products.
B. Package is one of the important ways of advertising.
C. People prefer to buy the products in plain containers.
D. The size of a package usually motivates a buyer.

  47. The phrase “a buyer will get something for nothing” ( Line 1, Para 2 ) probably
means .
A. a buyer will get something free of charge
B. a buyer will get something useless
C. a buyer will get something useful
D. nothing is worth buying

  48. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage?
A. Sometimes people are easily motivated by packages.
B. Small children sometimes are more interested in games printed on a package
than the product itself.
C. A product in a reusable container must be cheaper than a similar product in a
plain container.
D. “Economy Size”doesn t always suggest that people can buy the most product
for the least money

  49. What does the word “ them ” ( Line 6, Para. 1 ) refer to? .
A. Small gifts B. Pictures C. Games D. Products

  50. What does the author imply in the last paragraph?
A. Package is just an advertisement.
B. Buyers shouldn’t believe the information on the package too much.
C. The package has nothing to do at all with the product.
D. Buyers can always find answers in the information on the package.
Passage Three
For any Englishman, there can never be any discussion as to who is the world’s
greatest poet and greatest dramatist. Only one name can possibly suggest itself to him: that
of William Shakespeare. Every Englishman has some knowledge, however slight, of the
work our greatest writer. All of us use words, phrases and quotations from Shakespeare’s
writings that have become part of the common property of English-speaking people. Most of
the time we are probably unaware of the source of the words we use, rather like the old lady
who was taken to see a performance of HAMLET and complained that “it was full of
well-known proverbs and quotations.”
Shakespeare, more perhaps than any other writer, made full use of the great resources
of the English language. Most of us use about five thousand words in our normal
employment of English; Shakespeare in his works used about twenty-five thousand. There is
probably no better way for a foreigner to appreciate the richness and variety of the English
language than by studying the various ways in which Shakespeare used it. Such a study is
well worth the effort (it is not, of course, recommended to beginners) even though some
aspects of English usage, and the meaning of many words, have changed since
Shakespeare’s day.

  51. English people.
