Part III Cloze (10 marks)
Read the passage and fill in each blank with one word. Choose the word in one of the following three ways: according to the context, by using the correct form of the given word, or by using some given letters of the word. Remember to write the answers on the answer sheet. Many of the things we do depend (
  46) receiving information from other people. (
  47) Ca a train, making a phone call and going to the cinema all involve information which is stored, (
  48) pro and communicated. In the past this information used to be kept on paper in the (
  49) f of, for example, books, newspapers and timetables. Now more and more information is put on computers. Computers play an important (
  50) in our everyday lives, sometimes without us even (
  51) (realize) it. Consider the use of computers in both shops and offices. Big shops, (
  52) es chain stores with branches all over the country, have to deal with very large amounts of information. They have to make sure there are enough goods on the shelves for customers to buy. They need to be able to re?order before stocks run (
  53) , and to decide which things are selling well and so on. All these processes get performed quickly and (
  54) effi by computers. A lot of office work in the past involved information on paper. Once it had been dealt with by people, the paper was put away for future reference. This way of doing things was not (
  55) (particular) easy or fast. A computerized system is much more efficient.
Part IV Reading Comprehension (40 marks)
Read the following passages. Each passage is followed by several questions. Respond to the questions according to the passage. Remember to write the answers on the answer sheet.
Section A (10 marks)
When we think of good health, we almost always think about eating good food and doing exercise. However, getting enough sleep and dreaming are also part of good health. After a hectic day of work and play,
the body needs to rest, and sleep is the body's response to this need. Sleep is necessary for good health. During this time, the body recovers from the activities of the previous day. The rest that you get while sleeping enables your body to prepare itself for the next day. There are four levels of sleep, each being a little deeper than the one before. When you sleep your muscles relax little by little. Your heart beats more slowly, and your brain slows down. After you reach the fourth level, your body shifts back and forth from one level of sleep to another. Although your mind slows down, from time to time you will dream. Scientists who study sleep say that when dreaming occurs, your eyeballs move more quickly (although your eyelids are closed). This stage of sleep is called REM, which stands for rapid eye movement. Not only all humans, but all mammals have been shown to experience this REM stage. Dreaming is a normal and necessary part of a good sleeping pattern, but no one knows why we dream. If you have trouble falling asleep, there are a few possible ways of solving this problem. Some people recommend breathing very slowly and very deeply. Other people believe that drinking warn milk will help make you drowsy. There is also an old suggestion that counting sheep will put you to sleep!
Questions 56?57: Read the questions and four choices marked A, B, C, and D, and decide which is the best
choice according to the passage.
  56. Which of the following is not mentioned as having to do with good health? A. Eating good food. C. Getting enough sleep and dreaming. B. Doing exercise every day. D. Having medical examinations regularly.

  57. After you reach the fourth level of sleep, from one level to another. A. your muscles relax gradually C. your heart beats more slowly B. your body shifts back and forth D. your brain slows down
Questions 58 ?60: Complete each of the following statements with no more than six words according to
the passage.
  58. Scientists find that one's eyeballs move more quickly although their eyelids are closed.
  59. No one has any idea , though dreaming is a normal and necessary part of a good sleeping pattern.
  60. Breathing slowly and deeply, drinking warm milk or help a person to feel drowsy and go to sleep.
Section B (10 marks)
The Sunningdale Hotel
The Sunningdale Hotel was built in 1910 and opened by Princess Louise. It has provided excellent service for people from all over the world and people of all ages and nationalities have stayed here. During the past 100 years over 50,000 guests from 174 different countries have visited Sunningdale. The hotel is on one of the main. roads leading to the town center. It is about 20 minutes by bus from the center of town, and buses to many other parts of the town stop outside the hotel.

The main building has 200 well-furnished, centrally-heated single rooms, each fitted with hot and cold water basins. Showers, baths and toilets are at the end of all corridors. The hotel has a shop, sitting rooms, four television rooms, table tennis room, library and laundry. There are also eight pianos available for guests' use. There are spaces to park cars in the hotel drive. Daily newspapers are provided free and stamps can be bought at the office. Guests who stay for long periods must pay for their accommodation weekly in advance and one week's notice is required for departures. Short or long term guests are welcome but long term guests are offered rooms first. No animals of any description or fires of any type (either for heating food or heating the room) are allowed, and guests are requested to respect the comfort of others.
