Part I Reading Comprehension
Directions: There are three passages in this part. Each passage is followe d by some questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four c hoices marked A, B, C and D. You should
decide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.
Passage 1
Question 1to 5 are based on the following passage.
If you have a chance to go to Finland, you will probably be surprised to f ind how “foolish” the Finnish people are.
Take the taxi drivers for example. Taxis in Finland are mostly high-class Benz with a fare of two US dollars a kilometer. You can go anywhere in one, tel l the driver to drop you at any place, say that you have some business to atten d to, and then walk off without paying your fare. The driver would not show the least sign of anxiety.
The dining rooms in all big hotels not only serve their guests, but also s erve outside diners. Hotel guests have their meals free, so they naturally go t o the free dining rooms to have their meals. The most they would do to show the ir good faith is to wave their registration card to the waiter. With such a loo se check, you can easily use any old registration card to take a couple of frie nds to dine free of charge.
The Finnish workers are paid by the hour. (
  77) They are very much on their own as soon as they have agreed with the boss on the rate. From then on they j ust say how many hours they have worked and they will be paid accordingly.
With so many loopholes(漏洞) in everyday life, surely Finland must be a he aven to those who love to take “petty advantages”. But the strange thing is, all the taxi passengers would always come back to pay their fare after they hav e attended to their business; not a single outsider has ever been found in the free hotel dining rooms. And workers always give an honest account of the exact hours they put in. As the Finns always act on good faith in everything they do, living in such a society has turned everyone into a real “gentleman”.
  78) In a society of such high moral practice, what need is there for peop le to be on guard against others?

  1. While taking a taxi in Finland,
A. a passenger can go anywhere without having to pay the driver
B. a passenger pays two US dollars for a taxi ride
C. a passenger can never be turned down by the taxi driver wherever he wan ts to go

  2. We know from the passage that big hotels in Finland
A. provide meal for only those who live in the hotels
B. provide meals for any diners
C. provide free wine and charge for food
D. are mostly poorly managed

  3. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?

B. The bosses in Finland are too busy to check the working hours of their employees.
C. The workers are always honest with their working hours.
D. The workers and their bosses will make an agreement in advance about th e pay.

  4. The word “those” in the last paragraph probably refers to
A. people who often take taxis
B. people who often have meals in big hotels
C. people who are dishonest
D. people who are worthy of trust

  5. It can be concluded that
A. Finnish people are not smart enough in daily life

D. all the Finns are rich
Passage 2
Question 6 to 10 are based on the following passage:
There are many factors which may have an influence on adults and children being able to lead a healthy life.
Nowadays, people are very busy. Often, both parents work outside the home. Children are expected to take on more responsibility at home to help their par ents. They also have sporting and leisure activities as well as school expectat ions.

Environments vary. We may be exposed to pollution , such as cigarette smok e. This can be harmful to people who suffer from breathing difficulties. (
  80)En vironments where passive smoking is unavoidable make it difficult to lead a hea lthy life.

thered next door . but I do have a crystal-clear memory of dogs, the farm anima ls , the local birds and above all ,the insects.
