If you are ever lucky to be invited to a formal dinner party in Paris, remember that the French have their own way of doing things, and that even your finest manners may not be “correct” by French custom. For example, if you think showing up without delay at the time given on the invitation, armed with gifts of wine and roses, (
  41) your hostess on her cooking, laughing heartily at the host’s jokes and then (
  42) up to help the hostess will make you the perfect guest, think again. Here Madame Nora Chabal, the marketing director of The Ritz Hotel in Paris, explains how it works. The first duty of the guest is to respond to the invitation within 48 hours. If an invitation is for eight o’clock, the (
  43) guest arrives at 8:
  15. Guests who arrive (
  44) on time or early are mere thoughtless ones who are not giving the hostess those last few minutes she needs to deal with details. The “guest” arrives between 15 to 20 minutes after the hour because dinner will be served exactly 30 minutes past the time on the invitation. Flowers sent in advance are the (
  45) gift. They may also be sent afterwards with a thank-you note. It is considered a very bad form to arrive with a gift of flowers in hand, thereby forcing the hostess to deal with finding a vase when she is too busy to do that. See, that’s the logic! The type of flowers sent has a (
  46) of its own, too. One must never send Chrysanthemums(菊花) because they are considered too (
  47) a flower for occasion. Carnations are considered bad luck. And though the French love wine, you must never bring a bottle to a dinner party. Why, it’s as if you (
  48) your hosts would not have enough wine on hand, and that’s an (
  49). You may, however, offer a box of chocolates that the hostess will pass after dinner with coffee. III. Reading Comprehension Section A Directions: For each blank in the following passage there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context. Everyone knows how the story of Cinderella ends, but did you ever really think about how she spent her days before she met the prince? Her daily (
  50) was not fascinating. She did everything from sweeping the floor to cooking the meals. If someone had asked Cinderella, “Are there any kinds of (
  51) work that you particularly hate?” she probably would have answered, “Why, none, of course. Housework is my duty!” In the real world, (
  52), most people have definite (
  53) for certain sorts of housework. Two of these tasks are ironing clothes and washing dishes. Ironing clothes is most hated (
  54) it is not a task that can be completed quickly or thoughtlessly. Each piece of clothing must be handled (
  55), so ironing a basket of laundry can take hours! After ironing a piece of clothing with great care, you need to place it on a hanger as soon as possible. If you do not follow these directions carefully, it might become (
  56) and you have to start over. Perhaps that is why ironing is not a (
  57) thing to do. It (
  58) extreme attention to detail from beginning to end.
Another household job that many people dislike is washing dishes. (
  59), some people claim that this work is no longer a problem because we have dishwashers now! However, no one would (
  60) that dishes, silverware, and (
  61) pots and pans washed in a dishwasher don’t come out as clean as they do when washed by hand. For this reason, many of us (
  62) to wash our dishes by hand, but we are not necessarily happy doing it. Cleaning dishes is a job that not only takes a lot of energy but also (
  63) the patience to wash and dry them. (
  64), unlike ironing clothes, washing dishes is a thing that usually must be done every day. I don’t know how Cinderella felt about this particular task, but I believe that most people hate it as much as I do.
  50. A. parade B. pattern C. routine D. response
  51. A. household B. patriotic C. invisible D. mechanical
  52. A. moreover B. hence C. however D. therefore
  53. A. desires B. dislikes C. opinions D. appeals
  54. A. but B. because C. although D. so that
  55. A. gracefully B. briefly C. individually D. neutrally
  56. A. suspended B. transferred C. leaked D. wrinkled
  57. A. favourite B. regular C. primary D. painful
  58. A. calls on B. calls for C. takes on D. takes for
  59. A. As a result B. In fact C. Of course D. For example
  60. A. argue B. admit C. agree D. assume
  61. A. occasionally B. constantly C. especially D. classically
  62. A. attach B. refuse C. continue D. engage
  63. A. reduces B. regulates C. removes D. requires
  64. A. In addition B. In a word C. On the contrary D. By contrast Section B Directions: Read the following four passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. (A) In 1993, I had my first opportunity to visit Russia as a representative of the University of California. I was there to provide some technical assistance in the area of agricultural labor management. “Russians are a very polite people,” I had been tutored before my arrival. One of my interpreters, once I was there, explained that a gentleman will pour the limonad (type of juice) for the ladies and show politeness. Toward the end of my three week trip I was invited by my young Russian host and friend Nicolai Vasilevich and his lovely wife Yulya out to dinner. At the end of a wonderful meal, Yulya asked if I would like a banana. I politely declined and thanked her, and explained I was most satisfied with the meal. But the whole while my mind was racing: “What do I do? Do I offer her a banana even though they are as close to her as they are to me? What is the polite thing to do?” “Would you like a banana?” I asked Yulya. “Yes,” she smiled, but made no attempt to take any of the three bananas in the fruit basket. “What now?” I thought.
“Which one would you like?” I asked awkwardly. “That one,” she pointed at one of the bananas. Thinking about Russian politeness, I picked the banana Yulya had pointed at and peeled(去皮) it half way and handed it to her. Smiles in Yulya’s and Nicolai’s faces told me I had done the right thing. After this experience I spent much time
