Part Ⅲ. Reading Comprehension ( 35 points)
Section A
Directions: There are two passages in this section. Read each passage and then answer the
questions given at the end of each passage.(2×10=20 points)
Passage one
Before, whenever we had wealth, we started discussing poverty. Why not now? Why is the
current politics of wealth and poverty seemingly about wealth alone? Eight years ago, when Bill
Clinton first ran for president, the Dow Jones average was under 3,500, yearly federal budget
deficits were projected at hundreds of billions of dollars forever and beyond, and no one talked
about the “permanent boom” or the “new economy.” Yet in that more straitened time, Clinton
made much of the importance of “not leaving a single person behind.” It is possible that similar
“compassionate” rhetoric might yet play a role in the general election.
But it is striking how much less talk there is about the poor than there was eight years ago,
when the country was economically uncertain, or in previous eras, when the country felt flush.
Even last summer, when Clinton spent several days on a remarkable, Bobby Kennedy-like
pilgrimage through impoverished areas from Indian reservations in South Dakota to ghetto
neighborhoods in East St. Louis, the administration decided to refer to the effort not as a poverty
tour but as a “new markets initiative.”
What is happening is partly a logical, policy-driven reaction. Poverty really is lower than it
has been in decades, especially for minority groups. The most attractive solution to it?a growing

economy?is being applied. The people who have been totally left out of this boom often have
medical, mental or other problems for which no one has an immediate solution. “The economy has
sucked in anyone who has any preparation, any ability to cope with modern life,” says Franklin D.
Raines, the former director of the Office of Management and Budget who is now head of Fannie
Mae. When he and other people who specialize in the issue talk about solutions, they talk
analytically and long-term: education, development of work skills, shifts in the labor market,
adjustment in welfare reform.
But I think there is another force that has made this a rich era with barely visible poor people.
It is the unusual social and imaginative separation between prosperous America and those still left
out…. It’s simple invisibility, because of increasing geographic, occupation, and social berriers
that block one group from the other’s view.

  41. The main idea of the passage is that .
A. The county is enjoying economic growth
B. The poor are benefiting from today’s good economy
C. in the past we were more aware of the poor than we are today
D. in the past there were many more poor people than there are today

  42. In line 5 of the 1st paragraph, the word “straitened” means “.”
A. wealthy B. difficult C. apathetic D. tensional

  43. From this passage, we can conclude that .
A. the relationship between the rich and the poor has changed
B. the good economy will soon end
C. poverty will be removed as a result of increased wealth
D. all people benefit from good economic conditions

  44. According to the author, one important reason that we do not talk much about poverty is that
A. no one knows what to do about it
B. poverty really is lower than in the past
C. no one has been left out of the current boom
D. the president is not concerned about the poor

  45. The main purpose of writing this passage is to .
A. entertain B. tell a story C. describe D. persuade
Passage two
The need for a satisfactory education is more important than ever before. Nowadays, without
a qualification from a reputable school or university, the odds of landing that plum job advertised
in the paper are considerably shortened. Moreover, one’s present level of education could fall well
short of future career requirements.  
  It is no secret that competition is the driving force behind the need to obtain increasingly
higher qualifications. In the majority of cases, the urge to upgrade is no longer the result of an
insatiable thirst for knowledge. The pressure is coming from within the workplace to compete with
ever more qualified job applicants, and in many occupations one must now battle with colleagues
in the reshuffle for the position one already holds.

  Striving to become better educated is hardly a new concept. Wealthy parents have always
been willing to spend the vast amounts of extra money necessary to send their children to schools
with a perceived educational edge. Working adults have long attended night schools and refresher
courses. Competition for employment has been around since the curse of working for a living
began. Is the present situation so very different to that of the past?
 The difference now is that the push is universal and from without as well as within. A student
at secondary school receiving low grades is no longer as easily accepted by his or her peers as was
once the case. Similarly, in the workplace, unless employees are engaged in part-time study, they
may be frowned upon by their employers and peers and have difficulty even standing still. In fact,
in these cases, the expectation is for careers to go backwards and earning capacity to take an
appreciable nosedive.  
  At first glance, the situation would seem to be laudable; a positive response to the exhortation
by a former Prime Minister, Bob Hawke, for Australia to become the clever country. Yet there are
serious ramifications according to at least one educational psychologist. Dr Brendan Gatsby has
caused some controversy in academic circles by suggesting that a bias towards what he terms
paper’ excellence might cause more problems than it is supposed to solve. Gatsby raises a number
of issues that affect the individual as well as society in general.  
  Firstly, he believes the extra workload involved is resulting in abnormally high stress levels
in both students at secondary school and adults studying after working hours. Secondly, skills
