Part II
Section A
Reading Comprehension (20%)
Directions: There are three reading passages in this section. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four suggested answers marked A, B, C and D. Choose the best answer to each question. Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage: Every human being, no matter what he is doing, gives off body heat. The usual problem is how to get rid of it. But the designers of the Johnstown campus of the University of Pittsburgh set themselves the opposite problem ? how to collect body heat. They have designed a collection system which uses not only body heat, but the heat given off by such objects as light bulbs and refrigerators
SFLEP College English (Revised Edition) Achievement Test (Band
as well. The system works so well that no fuel is needed to make the campus’s six buildings comfortable. Some parts of most modern buildings ? theaters and offices as well as classrooms ? are more than sufficiently heated by people and lights and sometimes must be air-conditioned even in winter. The technique of saving heat and redistributing it is called “heat recovery”. A few modern buildings recover heat, but the University’s system is the first to recover heat from buildings and reuse it in others. Along the way, Pitt has learned a great deal about some of its producers. The harder a student studies, the more heat his body gives off. Male students send out more heat than female students, and the larger a student is, the more heat he produces. It is tempting to conclude that the hottest prospect for the Johnstown campus would be a hard-working overweight male genius.
  1. What is characteristic of the buildings on Johnstown campus of the University of Pittsburgh? A. They are more comfortable to live in than other buildings. B. They collect body heat to regulate the temperature inside. C. They use light bulbs to heat the classrooms. D. They consume less fuel to keep the classrooms cool.
  2. According to the passage, the technique of heat recovery is used . A. to provide a special form of air-conditioning B. to provide heat for the hot water system C. to find out the source of heat D. to collect heat and reuse it
  3. The phrase “the hottest prospect” in this passage refers to . A. the person who suffers most from heat B. the person who needs more heat than others C. the person who gives off most heat D. the person who make better use of body heat
  4. Which of the following statements is NOT true according the passage? A. The harder a student works, the more heat he or she produces. B. The bigger a student is, the more heat he or she sends out. C. A girl student sends out more heat than a boy student. D. A large and hard-working boy student gives off the most heat.
  5. Which of the following may be the best title for this passage? A. Recovery of Body Heat C. Modern Building’s Heat System B. Body Heat and Sex D. Ways of Heating Buildings Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage: The Earth has a force that pulls thing toward itself. We call this force gravity. This is something we live with all the time, and we take it for granted and hardly ever think about it. But it is a most important factor in rocket operation and must overcome if we are to get anywhere in space, or off the
外教社《大学英语》 (修订本)2 级学业测试
ground at all. Take the throwing of a ball as an example. The harder the ball is thrown, the faster and higher it will go. What is the secret? Its speed. If we could throw the ball hard enough it would go up and up forever and never come down. The speed at which it would have to be thrown do this is known as escape speed. Of course, we cannot throw a ball hard enough because the speed required to escape completely from the Earth’s gravity is seven miles per second, or over twenty-five thousand miles per hour. Once escape speed has been reached by a spacecraft, no further power is needed. A rocket aimed at the Moon, for instance, will ‘coast’(滑行)the rest of the way because the Earth’s gravity cannot then pull it back, and there is no air resistance in space to slow it down. This ‘coasting’ is known as ‘free fall’. That does not mean the rocket is falling down towards the Earth but that it is traveling freely in space without the aid of power, like a bicycle coasting downhill. Free fall is an important feature of space travel: it would be impossible to carry enough fuel to provide powered flight all the time.
  6. What is the most important factor for a rocket to escape from the Earth? A. To travel as fast as it can. B. To overcome the Earth’s gravity. C. To reduce the air resistance. D. To carry enough fuel with it.
  7. How fast will a rocket go to escape completely from the Earth’s gravity? A. Seventy miles per second. B. Seven thousand miles per hour. C. Twenty-five thousand miles per second. D. Twenty-five thousand miles per hour.
  8. As there is always the Earth’s gravitational pull, people . A. accept it without questioning it C. seldom think about how to use it B. never notice its presence D. often try to escape from it
  9. When a bicycle ‘coasts’ downhill, it . A. runs faster and faster B. runs freely without any further power C. is no longer affected by the Earth’s gravity D. does not meet with air resistance
  10. Why is it not necessary to provide powered flight in space all the time? A. Few spacecraft complete their flight operations. B. The spacecraft will be attracted by the Moon. C. No further power is needed after the escape speed is reached. D. ‘Free fall’ takes the place of the Earth’s gravitational pull. Questions 11 to 15 are based on the following passage:
SFLEP College English (Revised Edition) Achievement Test (Band
Crime is a very serious problem in Britain. One sort of crime which particularly worries people is juvenile delinquency ? that is, crimes committed by young people. For some years juvenile delinquency had been increasing. There are two main sorts of juvenile crimes: stealing and violence. Most people do not understand why young people commit these crimes. There are, I think, a large number of different reasons. These crimes are not usually committed by people who are poor or in need. Young people often dislike and hate the adult world. They will do things to show that they are rebels. Also in Britain today it is easier for young people to commit crimes because they have more freedom to go where they like and more money to do what they like. There are two other possible causes which are worth mentioning. More and more people in Britain live in large towns. In a large town no one knows who anyone else is or where they live. But in the village I come from crimes are rare because everyone knows everyone else. Although it is difficult to explain, I think the last cause is very important. Perhaps there is something with our society which encourages violence and crime. It is a fact that all the time children are exposed to films and reports about crime and violence. Many people do not agree that this influences the young people, but I think that young people are very much influenced by the society they grow in. I feel that the fault may be as much with our whole society as with these young people.
  11. From the passage we know that many British people are confused about . A. the causes of juvenile crimes B. the rise of the crime rate C. the problem of crimes in their country D. the various kinds of juvenile delinquency
  12. One reason why young people in large cities are more likely to commit crimes is that . A. they need more money B. they are free to move C. they live a better life D. nobody knows anything about others
  13. According to the passage, which groups of the following young people are LEAST likely to commit crimes? A. Those living in big cities. B. Those living in the countryside. C. Those who are very poor. D. Those who are in need of help.
  14. Unlike many others, the author holds that one important cause for juvenile delinquency is that . A. young people nowadays do not like adult world B. young people in Britain today are freer than before C. young people are influenced by crime and violence in films and newspapers D. too many young people have come to live in big cities
  15. According to the passage, which is to blame for juvenile crimes, apart from the young people themselves? A. The adult world. B. Their parents. C. The society. D. The development of the cities.

Section B
Directions: There is one reading passage in this section. The passage is followed by five statements. Decide whether these statements are true or false according to the passage. Write “T” for true and “F” for false in the brackets behind each statement. People have been interested in handwriting for a long time. The first book on the study of handwriting was written in 16
  32. Since then, hundreds of books have been published on the subject. Researchers believe that you can learn a lot about people’s personalities by looking at the way they write. Some of the characteristics they look at are slant ? whether your letters point forward or backward, pressure ? whether you press hard or only lightly on the paper, and the size of capital letters. Each of these characteristics can tell different personalities. For example, if you slant your letter forward, you are an outgoing, friendly person. If you press hard, you are a person with strong feelings. If you write small capital letters, then you are very shy. Researchers also look at which parts of the letters seem larger or more important. For this reason they have divided the letters into three parts. If the upper part of the letter is very large compared to the part in the middle, then the writer may be idealistic. If the lower part is very lar
