ssage Two Many American college and university students live in university residence halls. These halls are popularly called "dorms." Residence halls may offer various types of living accommodations. There are single rooms, in which a student lives alone but there probably are a good many more double rooms, which two students share. Some dorms have sets of rooms, where small groups of students have separate bedrooms but share a bathroom and maybe a study room. There are usually a number of conveniences available for those living in university residence halls. Most have washing machines and clothes dryers for use by the residents. Many dorms have kitchens where students can prepare light meals. Residence halls generally provide not only room and board but public rooms and recreational facilities (娱乐设施) and sometimes study rooms for their use. If you live in a dormitory you need to know what the rules and regulations are. Meals usually are served at only certain hours, and you must be there at those hours if you expect to eat. There may be only certain hours when visitors may come, or they may be limited to certain areas of the dormitory. Often cooking in bedrooms is prohibited(禁止), and the use of certain pieces of electrical equipment such as coffee pots or hair dryers may be limited. Living in a residence hall carries certain obligation(义务). You have to be considerate of others, especially during study hours. Telephone calls and visits by friends should be short. You have to cooperate in keeping the room as neat as possible. It is sometimes hard to be tolerant of another person's habits that may differ from your own.
  21. Residence halls in American universities provide . A) single rooms shared by two students. B) apartments for small groups of students. C) double rooms for two students. D) separate rooms with a common bathroom.

  22. Living in university halls is convenient because . A) meals are served at any time B) most halls provide various facilities C) public rooms are available for visitors D) all have study rooms for their own use
  23. What is prohibited in residence halls? A) Eating meals in one's bedroom. B) The use of coffee pots.
C) The use of electrical equipment. D) Preparing meals in bedrooms.

  24. What must you learn to be tolerant of if you live in a dormitory? A) Your roommate's telephone calls. B) Habits that may differ from your own. C) Visits by your roommate's friends. D) Roommates who are inconsiderate.
  25. Living in a residence hall you have to . A) do your best to keep the room clean B) form a habit of other's C) have your phone calls in your room D) study hard during study hours Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage. Passage Three What is a good listener? Students who feel they are say it is because they pay attention; remember what the person says; and ask questions based on what the other has said; or it is because they like people and are interested in them. They feel they are poor listeners when they think about something else while the other is talking or when they're tired, or not interested in what she or he is talking about. In fact, there are a variety of ways to listen, just as there are a variety of ways to say something. Human beings are complex and concealing. Often we don't say what we want to say, or say exactly the opposite of what we want to say. Sometimes, we aren't honest or direct with another because we think we don't have the right or are afraid of what will happen if we are. The body "talks", too, sometimes more honestly than the tongue. These different ways of talking need different ways of listening. To keep the seesaw going in conversations and in relationships, we need to understand and use these different ways, especially if our goal is to be a caring, thoughtful person. By knowing how to listen in various ways, you can be accurate in picking up messages no matter how they are masked or distorted (变形了的) or how they are delivered. Some messages are heard just by listening silently; some, by holding a hand or giving a hug (拥抱). But to be able to respond accurately, you need to hear accurately. Most people listen only with their ears. Too few listen with their hearts as well as their ears, listening to the other's, sharing of his or her hopes, joys, fears.

  26. According to the passage, listening only with ears may happen to us when . A) we are emotionally tired C) we are so interested in the topic B) we are physically disabled D) we are asked many questions
  27. Which of the following is NOT TRUE about a good listener? A) He can feel what the speaker thinks. B) He can share the speaker's feeling. C) He can remember what the speaker says. D) He can listen with his heart.
  28. The purpose in writing the second paragraph is to . A) demonstrate why we are not honest in communication B) explain how our body “talks” C) illustrate ways used by people in speaking D) show that understanding one's speech is not an easy job
  29. The word "seesaw" (Line 1, Para.
  3) probably means . A) communication D) friendship B) purpose C) understanding
  30. According to the passage our failure to give proper response to the speaker is probably because . A) we misunderstand what he says C) he speaks in a distorted way B) we don't like the speaker D) he speaks in a different language Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage. Passage Four Superstition (迷信) is a difficult question. We cannot quite say that superstition in Britain is dead. Its history is too long and too recent for that, and indeed you will find many remains of it in modem Britain. But they are only connected chiefly with vague beliefs of good luck and bad luck. It is unlucky, for instance, to walk under a ladder, or to spill salt, or break a mirror, or to have anything to do with number 13; whereas a horseshoe brings good luck, and people jokingly "touch wood" to prevent the return of a past misfortune. There are still many strange country remedies against sickness which are obviously superstitions. Most of all, there is still a surprising amount of interest in fortune-telling, e.g. in the form of "horoscopes" (占星术) in newspapers and women's magazines-though for most people this is nothing more than an amusement, which they may well be slightly ashamed of. But the real measure of superstition is fear. In this sense there is no superstition in Britain. British people as a whole do not believe in evil influences or evil spirits. Sickness and misfortune do not come from devils, but are the result of chance or foolishness or inefficiency. Devils belong only to history books. Devils exist only in the
mind -- usually the minds of others. Magic is simply an interesting word for performing tricks. Fairies (童话故事中的仙女) are pretty little winged creatures in "fairy stories" for children and any adult who believed in fairies or magic or devils would be considered slightly mad. Thus, modern Britain has largely emerged from superstition, and the future seems to consist not of devils, but of matter and machines.
  31. The author's purpose in writing this passage is to . A) criticize British people's superstitious beliefs B) show British people's attitudes towards superstitious beliefs today C) describe various superstitious beliefs still practiced in modern Britain D) emphasize the influence of superstition upon the British people
  32. According to the remaining superstitious beliefs in Britain, all the following are concerned with bad luck except . A) break a mirror C) touch wood B) walk under a ladder D) pour salt out
  33. For most British people today, a horoscope column in newspapers is . A) just for fun C) only for women B) for making money D) for fortune-telling
  34. In the future, British people will . A) become slaves of machines C) get rid of their beliefs of God B) remove fairies from their life D) have no superstitious beliefs
  35. The author's attitude towards the changing of superstition-belief is . A) optimistic C) critical B) pessimistic D) neutral
