Choose the one that you think is the best answer. Mark your answer on the ANSWER SHEET by drawing with a pencil a short bar across the corresponding letter in the brackets. Questions 11?15 are based on the following passage: Some psychologists maintain that mental acts such as thinking are not performed in the brain alone, but that one’s muscles also participate. It may be said that we think with our muscles in somewhat the same way that we listen to music with our bodies. You surely are not surprised to be told that you usually listen to music not only with your ears but with your whole body. Few people can listen to music that is more or less familiar without moving their body or more specifically, some part of their body. Often when one listens to a symphonic concert on the radio, he is tempted to direct the orchestra even though he knows there is a competent conductor on the job. Strange as this behavior may be, there is a very good reason for it. One cannot derive all possible enjoyment from music unless he participates, so to speak, in its performance. The listener “feels” himself into the music with more or less noticeable motions of his body. The muscles of the body actually participate in the mental process of thinking in the same way, but this participation is less obvious because it is less noticeable.
  11. Some psychologists maintain that thinking is . A. not a mental process B. more of a physical process than a mental action C. a process that involves our entire bodies D. a process that involves the muscles as well as the brain 答案 D。本题考点在文章第一句中的 mental acts such as thinking are not performed in the brain 。 alone, but that one’s muscles also participate。原文中的 not…alone, but…相当于考题里的 as well as, 所以考生对意思相似相近的表达要清楚。
  12. Few people are able to listen to familiar music without . A. moving some part of their body B. stopping what they are doing to listen C. directing the orchestra playing it D. wishing that they could conduct music properly
答案 A。本题的依据句是第二段中的第二个句子 Few people can listen to music that is more or 。 less familiar without moving their body or more specifically, some part of their body.
  13. Body movements are necessary in order for the listener to . A. hear the music B. appreciate the music C. enjoy the music fully D. completely understand the music 答案 C。本题依据关键在第三段第二句中的 derive all possible enjoyment from music,这与试 。 题中的 enjoy the music fully 意思相当。
  14. According to the selection, muscle participation in the process of thinking is . A. deliberate B. obvious C. not readily apparent D. very pronounced 答案 C。本题的依据是短文中的最后一句,关键部分是 this participation is less obvious,这 。 与选项 C、 not readily apparent 意思相当。
  15. The best title for this selection is . A. An Ear for Music B. Music Appreciation C. How Muscles Participate in Mental Acts D. A Psychological Definition of the Thinking Process 短文先指出思维中可能有类似听音乐时肌肉参与的情形; 接着描述了听音乐过程中 答案 C。 肌肉参与的情况;最后指出,肌肉在思维活动中的参与只不过没那么明显罢了。可见,全文 主要讨论的是肌肉在思维活动中的参与,既不是专门讲思维,更不是专门说音乐。故 C 选 项做标题合适。 Questions 16?20 are based on the following passage: During the summer session there will be a revised schedule of services for the university community. Specific changes for intercampus bus services, summer hours for the cafeteria, the infirmary (校医院) and recreational and athletic facilities will be posted on the bulletin board outside of the cafeteria. Weekly movie and concert schedules which are in the process of being arranged will be posted each Wednesday outside of the cafeteria. Intercampus buses will leave the main hall every hour on the half hour and make all of the regular stops on their route around campus. The cafeteria will serve breakfast, lunch, and early dinner from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the week and from noon to 7 p.m. on weekends. The library will maintain regular hours during the week, but shorter hours on Saturdays and Sundays. The weekend hours are from noon to 7 p. m. All students who want to use the library borrowing services and recreational athletic, and entertainment facilities must have a valid summer identification card. This announcement will also appear in the next issue of the student newspaper.
  16. Which of the following is the main purpose of this announcement? A. To tell campus personnel of the new library services. B. To announce the new movies on campus this summer. C. To notify university people of important schedule changes. D. To remind the students to validate their identification cards. 答案 C。本文讲的是“暑期校区各项服务安排变更情况”,首句即主题句为 During the summer 。 session there will be a revised schedule of services for the university community.选项 C 符合题 意。
  17. Specific schedule revisions for which of the following facilities are listed in this
announcement? A. Athletic and recreational. B. Food and transportation. C. Bookstore and post office. D. Medical and audio-visual. 本题属于细节题。 要注意题干中的 Specific schedule revisions, 即“具体安排的修改”。 答案 B。 。 第二段首句和第二句分别详细描述了公交车的发车时间、 地点和食堂就餐时间, 文中没有提 到 A. Athletic and recreational, C. Bookstore and post office 和 D. Medical and audio-visual.的 具体情况。
  18. Times for movies and concerts are not listed in this announcement because . A. film or concert occurs every Wednesday at 7 p. m. B. the full list would be too long C. films and concerts cannot be announced publicly D. the full list is not ready yet 本题的依据是文章第一段第三句话。 关键部分是 Weekly movie and concert schedules 答案 D。 。 which are in the process of being arranged,即“每周电影和音乐会计划还在安排当中”,故 D 为合理选项。
  19. According to the announcement which of the following is true of special summer hours for the library? A. It has them only on the weekends. B. It has them both weekdays and weekends. C. It has no special summer hours. D. The information is not available. 根据题干中的 special summer hours for the library 可以缩小寻找答案的范围, 只寻找 答案 A。 。 与“图书馆”有关信息即可。答案依据在第二段的第三句,其中 but shorter hours on Saturdays and Sundays 是关键部分。 shorter hours 表示 special, but 与平时不同; Saturdays and Sundays 指的就是 weekends。因此 A 为正确选项。
  20. According to the announcement, a validated identification card is required to . A. ride on intercampus buses B. read announcements in the cafeteria C. make use of the infirmary D. check books out of’ the library 答案 D。本题答案依据是短文倒数第二句。句中提到“借书和娱乐健身”需要有效证明卡。注 。 意题干里的 validated 和原文中的 valid 意思相同,即“有效的”。 Questions 21?25 are based on the following passage: The economy in the United States is heavily dependent on aluminum, a material widely used in the construction of buildings and in making such diverse things as cars, airplanes, and food containers. In 1979 Americans used over five million tons of new aluminum, and one and a half million tons of recycled aluminum. Some ninety percent of the bauxite (矾土) ore from which new aluminum is normally derived had to be imported to meet the demand. Poorer ores are abundant in the United States, however, and researchers at Purdue University may recently have found a way to obtain aluminum magnetically from these. Although aluminum is not attracted by ordinary magnets, under special conditions it becomes temporarily “paramagnetic”, or very weakly responsive to a magnetic field. This is achieved by immersing ore particles in water to which certain salts have been added and then filtering the ore through steel wool in the presence of a strong magnetic field. It is hoped that this technique will
reduce the amount of high-grade aluminum the United States must import.
  21. The passage focuses on . A. construction and manufacturing industry in the United States B. new technique of obtaining aluminum from poor ores C. consumption and production of aluminum in the United States D. the annual import of high-grade aluminum into the United States 答案 C。本题考查的是对短文主旨大意的理解。首段说的是美国对铝的需求及其来源,第二 。 段讲述了一种新的提取铝的方法。故 C、 consumption and production of aluminum in the United States 最符合题意,A、B、D 虽然提到与短文有关的内容,但都不够全面。
  22. It is believed that a new technique to will probably be found. A. recycle old aluminum products B. discover more bauxite ores C. make aluminum by putting ore particles under water D. take out aluminum magnetically from poorer ores 答案 D。本题的依据是第一段最后一句,关键部分是 Poorer ores,have found a way to obtain 。 aluminum magnetically。
  23. In the second paragraph the word “paramagnetic” means . A. slightly magnetic B. a weak magnetic field C. a strong magnetic substance D. the under-water magnetic power 答案 A。这是个词汇题。解这种题需要先找到该词
