  00. The time allowed for this examination is 90 minutes. Section I: Reading Comprehension [30 points]
Instructions: ? This section will take approximately 25 minutes. ? There are TWO sections in this part. Part 1: Questions 1-5 are based on this part. (15 points) Read the following passage and choose the best answer from A, B, C and D. Most young people enjoy some form of physical activity. It may be walking, cycling or swimming, or in winter, skating or skiing. It may be game of some kind, football, hockey, golf, or tennis. It may be mountaineering. Those who have a passion for climbing high and difficult mountains are often looked upon with astonishment. Why are men and women willing to suffer cold and hardship, and to take risks on high mountains? This astonishment is caused probably by the difference between mountaineering and other forms of activity to which men give their leisure. Mountaineering is a sport and not a game. There are no man-made rules, as there are for such games as golf and football. There are, of course, rules of a different kind which it would be dangerous to ignore, but it is this freedom from man-made rules that makes mountaineering attractive to many people. Those who climb mountains are free to use their own methods. If we compare mountaineering and other more familiar sports, we might think that one big difference is that mountaineering is not a 'team game'. We should be mistaken in this. There are, it is true, no 'matches' between 'teams' of climbers, but when climbers are on a rock face linked by a rope on which their lives may depend, there is obviously teamwork. The mountain climber knows that he may have to fight forces that are stronger and more powerful than man. He has to fight the forces of nature. His sport requires high mental and physical qualities. A mountain climber continues to improve in skill year after year. A skier is probably past his best by the age of thirty, and most international tennis champions are in their early twenties. But it is not unusual
for man of fifty or sixty to climb the highest mountains in Alps. They may take more time than younger men, but they probably climb with more skill and less waste of effort, and they certainly experience equal enjoyment.
  1. Mountaineering involves . A. cold B. hardship C. physical risk D. all of the above
  2. The difference between a sport and a game has to do with the kind of . A. activity B. rules C. uniform D. participants
  3. Mountaineering can be called a team sport because . A. it is an Olympic event B. teams compete against each other C. mountaineers depend on others while climbing D. there are 5 climbers on each team
  4. Mountaineers compete against . A. nature B. each other C. other teams D. international standards
  5. Which of the following is probably the best title for the passage? . A. Mountaineering is different from golf and football B. Mountaineering is more attractive than other sports C. Mountaineering D. Mountain climbers Part 2: Questions 6- 10 are based on this part. (15 points) Read the following passage and choose the best answer from A, B, C and D. Remember global warming? Back in December, the threat of climate change was thundering and the rich countries agreed to cut their carbon-dioxide and other green-house-related emissions. Since then, interest has cooled markedly, and many European countries are already running away from the promises they made so loudly a few months ago. But there has been much talk, and a bit of action, to encourage renewable energies such as wind, hydro, solar and all living organisms. These emit no greenhouse gases, but tend to cost more than coal, oil or gas. The better, simpler idea is to remember that the easiest way to reduce something is to tax it - in this case, by taxing the carbon content power. The dirtier the power, the more tax would be charged. So dirty coal would be more expensive than
clean energy, so coal would see its price rise in relation to oil, which would be more expensive compared with gas, which would lose some of its price advantage over renewables. Unless a carbon tax was so huge as to be economically crippling, it would not remove the price differential between all renewables and fossil fuels. But it would narrow that gap, by fixing the differing environmental costs into the price - a useful principle in itself. It would also give renewable producers a strong incentive to cut costs, and fossil-fuel suppliers the motivation to clean their products. Precedents suggest strongly that a carbon tax would be effective. But the disadvantage to carbon tax is political. After almost a decade of trying, the European Union gave up an attempt at a European carbon tax last year. Germany's ruling coalition is fighting against a proposed energy tax. In America, politicians believe that even mentioning the notion is certain death. But many of the political objections could be met if a carbon tax were made up for the loss elsewhere, for example by lowering payroll or sales taxes. There is always suspicion when governments come up with clever new ways to tax, and rightly so. The response to that suspicion should be to win the argument, not to abandon it.
  6. According to the passage, the easiest way to remove global warming is . A. to encourage people to use renewable energies B. to cut down the cost of wind, hydro, solar and all living organisms C. to force people to pay more tax for the carbon content of power D. to talk less but act more
  7. The standard of paying tax was . A. that the more carbon content of power it contained, the higher tax one would pay B. that oil would be more expensive than clean coal C. that renewables would be most expensive of all D. in the order that renewables are the most expensive while clean coal the cheapest
  8. We can infer from the passage that carbon tax . A. may not be as effective as people expect B. has encouraged renewable producers to cut costs C. has reduced consumption of the carbon content energy successfully D. couldn't be that effective if fossil fuels would not be forbidden
  9. The underlined word "crippling" (Para.
  3) most probably means . A. greatly increasing B. seriously weakening C. sharply declining D. abruptly halting
  10. The reason why many countries stopped introducing carbon tax eventually was mainly that . A. governments had tried to put it into effect for many years but with no obvious result B. if one country made up the loss by paying the carbon tax, other countries would follow it
C. governments were afraid of being suspected if they adopted the new tax D. governments had been discussing what to do with carbon tax for a long time, but they didn’t believe it themselves.
