大学英语三级阅读模拟试题集 Model Test 1 Passage One Suppose you set your mind to work on the problem of how you would use your own eyes if you had 3 more days to see. If with the oncoming darkness of the 3rd night you knew that the sun would never rise for you again, how would you spend those 3 precious days? What would you most want to let your gaze rest upon? I, naturally, should want most to see the things which have become dear to me through my years of darkness. You, too, would want to let your eyes rest long on the things that have become dear to you so that you could take the memory of them with you in the night that loomed (降临) before you. I should want to see the people whose kindness and gentleness and companionship have made my life worth living. First I should like to gaze long upon the face of my teacher, Mrs. Anne Sullivan Macy, who came to me when I was a child and opened the outer world to me. I should want not merely the outline of her face, so that I could cherish it in my memory, but to study that face and find in it the living evidence of the sympathetic tenderness and patience with which she accomplished the difficult task of my education. I should like to see in her eyes that strength of character which has enabled her to stand firm in the face of difficulties, and that compassion for all humanity which she has revealed to me so often. Oh, the things that I should see if I had the power of sight for just 3 days!

Passage Two British university entrants (新学员) expect to be provided with washing machines and dryers in their rooms, and even car parking spaces, a survey has found. Students are also less prepared to tolerate poor quality living conditions than their predecessors, says the survey by British polling organization Mori. More than 1,000 full-time undergraduates and postgraduates from 21 universities across the UK were surveyed for the research. It shows that location is the key factor in choosing accommodation for students nearly half of those interviewed said that being close to their place of study was the most important factor in their choice. Cost came second, with evidence that many parents foot the bills for their children’s rent. The survey also shows that students are no longer prepared to carry bags of washing to the nearest launderette (自动洗衣店). These newcomers expect washers and dryers to be provided with their accommodation. The study also highlights those things today’s students expect as standard communal (公共的) areas to cleaned regularly, utility bills to be included, even private car parking space to be included. Separate finding from the UK’s National Union of Students published earlier this year show more than half of students in private rented accommodation are living in unsatisfactory conditions.

Voters in California will decide Tuesday whether to remove Governor Gray Davis from office. If he is recalled (罢免), public opinion studies show the leading candidate to replace him is actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yet the two men are not really opponents on the ballot (投票选举) Tuesday. Mister Davis is the only name on the first question. Voters are asked to decide if the governor should stay in office or be recalled. He needs fifty-percent of the votes plus one to stay. The second question asks voters who support the recall to choose a replacement. 135 candidates are lists. One of them is Mister Schwarzenegger. Another is Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante. He is considered the leading Democratic candidate. If Mister Davis is recalled, the candidate with the most votes will become governor. Republicans worry that another Republican on the ballot, state Senator Tom McClintock, could take votes away from Mister Schwarzenegger. Mister McClintock, however, was refusing to withdraw. Republican Congressman Darryl Issa financed the recall effort. He said he would urge people to vote “no” on the recall unless one of the Republicans withdrew to avoid splitting the vote. Opinion studies show that a majority of Californians want to recall Governor Davis. Many people say they are unhappy with the way he has dealt with a budget crisis. Critics of the recall effort say it is an undemocratic way to try to remove an elected governor from office. Mister Davis is in his second term. He says the recall is a Republican effort to seize power in California and possibly other states. 18 of the 50 states permit special elections to recall the governor. 6 of those states say the governor must be guilty of some wrongdoing. California is not one of them. It has some of the easiest rules for recall elections.

D. any Republican candidate to replace Gray Davis may split votes from Arnold Schwarzenegger
  14. What may be inferred from the passage?

Arnold Schwarzenegger is sure to win the election the election to recall the governor is actively supported by the Republican

Argentine President Nestor Kirchner announced the deal Wednesday in Buenos Aires. The agreement is designed to help the country recover from its worst economic crisis.

He said it also would help the country’s banking system and increase lending needed to support recovery. The country’s economic troubles were largely caused by too much spending by the government. The crisis in December of 2001 deepened a recession. Argentines are still dealing with the crisis. Half of the country’s 36 million people are poor. And there are few jobs. Many Argentines blame dishonest government officials for the problems.
