There was a time when parents who wanted an educational present for their children would buy a typewriter, a globe or an encyclopedia set.
Now those 21 seem hopelessly old _ fashioned: this Christmas, there were a lot of22computers under the tree. 23 that computers are their key to success, parents are also frantically insisting that children24taught to use them on school-as early as possible.
The problem for schools is that when it25computers, parents don't always know best. Many schools are 26 parental impatience and are purchasing hardware without 27 educational planning so they can say,"OK, we've moved into the computer age." Teachers 28 themselves caught in the middle of the problem-between parent pressure and 29 educational decisions.
Educators do not even agree30how computers should be used. A lot of money is going for computerized educational materials 31 research has shown can be taught32with pencil and paper. Even those who believe that all children should33to computer warn of potential34to the very young.
The temptation remains strong largely because young children 35 so well to computers. First graders have been

  36.willing to work for two hours on math skills. Some have an attention span of 20 minutes., however, can afford to go into computing, and that creates 38 another problem: a division between the haven's and have _ note's. Very few parents ask 39 computer instruction in poor school districts,40there may be barely enough money to pay the reading teacher.

Section III Reading Comprehension (60 minutes)
Part A
Read the following four texts. Answer the questions below each text by choosing A,B,C or D. Mark your answers on ANSWER SHEET
Text 1
One hundred and thirteen million Americans have at least one bank _ issued credit card. They give their owners automatic credit in stores, restaurants, and hotels, at home, across the country, and even abroad, and they make many banking services available as well. More and more of these credit cards can be read automatically, making it possible to withdraw or deposit money in scattered locations, whether or not the local branch bank is open. For many of us the"cashless society"is not on the horizon-it's already here.
While computers offer these conveniences to consumers, they have many advantages for sellers too. Electronic cash registers can do much more than simply ring up sales. They can keep a wide range of records, including who sold what, when, and to whom. This information allows businessmen to keep track of their list of goods by showing which items are being sold and how fast they are moving. Decisions to reorder or return goods to suppliers can then be made. At the same time these computers record which hours are busiest and which employees are the most efficient, allowing personnel and staffing assignments to be made accordingly. And they also identify preferred customer for promotional campaigns. Computers are relied on by manufacturers for similar reasons. Computer analyzed marketing reports can help to decide which products to emphasize now, which to develop for the future, and which to drop. Computers keep track of goods in stock, of raw materials on hand, and even of the production process itself.
Numerous other commercial enterprises, from theaters to magazine publishers, from gas and electric utilities to milk processors, bring better and more efficient
services to consumers through the use of computers.

  41. According to the passage, the credit card enables its owner to .
[A]withdraw as much money from the bank as he wishes
[B]obtain more convenient services than order people do
[C]enjoy greater trust from the storekeeper
[D]cash money where he wishes to

  42. From the last sentec of the first paragraph we learn that.
[A]in the future all the Americans will use credit cards
[B]credit cards are mainly used in the United States today
[C]nowadays many Americans did not pay in cash
[D]it is now more convenient or use credit cards than before

  43. The phrase"ring up sales"most probably means .
[A]make an order of goods
[B]record sales on a cash register
[C]call the sages manager
[D]keep track of the goods in stock

  44. What is this passage mainly about?
[A]Approaches to the commercial use of computers.
[B]Conveniences brought about by computers in business.
[C]Significance of automation in commercial enterprises.
[D]Advantage of credit cards in business.

  45. It can be inferred that
[A] Computers will bring disaster.
[B] Computer industry will not develop faster.
[C] Computers will bring about more convenience to people's life.
[D] None.

Studies of the effect that makes many of us slumber or feel sleepy during the queen's Speech on Christmas Day have revealed that changes may be required in Britain's drink drive legislation.
Dr James Horne, director of the Sleep Research Laboratory at Loughborough University, is investigating pose _ lunch sleepiness."We humans are designed to sleep twice a day, once at night and a short nap after lunch, but in this part of the world we tend to repress that."
It is a remnant of the same primeval programming that makes all animals in the bush rest in the hot afternoon sun to conserve energy.
"Hot environments make it worse and many cultures living near the equator", says Dr Horne,"have conceded to the inevitable, where the afternoon siesta is the way of life."
In this studies Dr Horne has been investigating the role of alcohol."The theory is that if you are more sleepy after lunch then it figures that alcohol will be more potent after lunch. One would figure then that a pint of beer at lunchtime has more effect than in the evening, when people are more alert. Indeed, we find that it has about twice the effect."
This has more sinister implications."If people take alcohol up to the legal driving limit, their performance is seriously impaired after lunch." He said.
It seems that alcohol interacts with the circadian rhythm of sleep to cause afternoon sleepiness, so that one pint at lunch _ time is equivalent, in effect, to a quart in the evening.
"For this reason, most drivers ought not to drink at all at lunchtime and the legal blood alcohol limit is no guide to 'safe'driving here,"said Dr Horne.
For those who wish to enjoy the Queen's speech, Dr Horne recommends mild exercise, a splash of cold air or cold water on the face, or a cup of coffee. Otherwise, take a cat nap. But this should be less than 15 minutes,"otherwise, sleep really sets in and one can wake up feeling very groggy and far sleepier than to ??? be in with."

  46. It is implied that British people
[A]like to take a short nap after lunch.
[B]don't take a short nap after lunch.
[C]don't feel sle
