In China some radio broadcasting stations use hotlines to encourage the listeners to take part in the talk shows. That's a good idea. Yes, the fact is some people do nothing but break the whole programme. Some people know little about the topic under the discussion. Sometimes they do not even know what the host(主持人)is talking about. So the host has to tell the caller what the show is about. Usually the caller will ask a few questions which express his hope and show his ignorance(无知). The host has to answer and explain──how silly this is! It wastes a lot of time. It seems that some people phone the hotlines in fun. They just want to let the listeners hear them. They don't care what the topic is, whether they themselves are interested in the topic or how silly they appear to be. It's necessary for radio broadcasting stations to improve the hotline programmes. In my opinion, if a caller doesn't know what is going on, the operator should not let the caller take part in it.
  1. The sentence "...some people do nothing but break the whole programmes may tell us that. A. radio broadcasting stations use hotlines in a wrong way B. some people have unclear thoughts C. there are problems to solve in the use of hotlines by some radio broadcasting stations D. the use of hotlines by some radio broadcasting stations is a good idea
  2. Which of the following is not true according to the passage? A. Some people do not know what the host is talking about. B. Some people do not know what the show is about. C. Some people know little about the topic under the discussion. D. The writer tells us that the host is silly.
  3. The host has to answer and explain. A. because Of lots of questions raised by the caller B. because of the caller's ignorance C. for the host likes talking to the caller D. for the host works hard
  4. The passage doesn't tell us the idea. A. that some listeners phone the hotlines in fun B. that some people just wont to be heard by others C. that some people who don' t care what the topic is must have realized that they appear to be silly D. what the hotline programmes are Keys: 1-4 CDBC

People today expect to be examined when they enter a doctor's office. At least they expect their blood pressure and temperature to be measured. However, as recently as two hundred years ago, a doctor's treatment depended on talking with patients. In general, the communication between doctors and their patients was the most important part of medical methods. The modem age of medicine began with the stethoscope ,an instrmnent for listening to patients heartbeat and breathing. Before that, a doctor did not touch a patient. In fact,there was no such things as a medical examination. The stethoscope──and all other medical instruments──-had a serious effect, on the practice of medicine. Doctors became better at finding the medical problems. More lives were saved. At the same time, doctors gave less importance to the communication between patients and doctors. Some doctors actually stopped talking to their patients. It is easy to understand why some sick people thought themselves as broken machines.
  1. A stethoscope can be used to. A. check health conditions B. cure some illness C. measure temperature D. treat heart disease
  2. Doctors gave less importance to the communication between patients and doctors mainly because. A. modern medical instruments were used B. they could cure more diseases and save more lives C. they had much more medical experience than before D. they were too busy to have time to talk with patients
  3. Some sick people thought of themselves as broken machines, which suggested that. A. modern doctors should treat their patients as machines B. the level of the treatment was greatly improved C. they thought they were useless just like broken machines D. they were not satisfied with the manner in which doctors treated them
  4. The best title for this passage should be. A. Medical Methods of Two Hundred Years Ago B. The Development of Medical Methods C. The Modem Age of Medicine D. The Use of the Stethoscope Keys: 1-4 AADB

We may be very pleased with the rapid progress we have made in every field of study. But the way to test a student's knowledge and ability still remains as poor as it was, We have almost done nothing to improve our examination system. It is well known that the examination system we are now using may be a good way of testing a student's memory, but it can tell you nothing about a student's ability. It does no good to students
and teachers. As soon as a child begins school,he enters a world of examination that will decide his future of job. In fact a good examination system should train a student to think for himself. But it now does nothing about that. So students are encouraged to member what is taught. It does not enable them to gain more and note knowledge. The students who come out first in the examination often may not be the best in their studies. Besides, the examinations often force teachers to train students what to do with the coming examination from time to time. There must be some simpler and better way to test a student' s ability besides knowledge. And that is what we should do at once.
  1. Now little has been done to. A. decide a student's job B. test a student's ability C. test a student's knowledge D. test a student's memory

Some English words are made up of the same part and have different beginnings and different endings, such as import, report and transport. All these words, you can see, have the same root "port", which comes from the Latin word, meaning"to carry'or"to move"from one place to another. And according to the bit at the beginning- which we call the prefix(~S~) -the meaning changes: "import" means "to...... carry in” or "to bring into a country”; export , "ex" means "out of" , so this word means "to carry out of a country"; "re" means "back”, so the word "report” means "to tell somebody to bring back information to somebody"; "transport", "trans" means "across" and it means " to carry across one place to another". Let's look at the following words: supporter, reporter, importer and exporter. You can see that in this case these words are nouns which are made up of the verbs plus a suffix(后辍) ,thus meaning a person who completes the verb. So supporter means somebody who supports. A reporter is somebody who reports. Importer is somebody who imports and exporter is somebody who exports, and so on.
  1. In the sentence "Some English words are made up of the same part…'", "part" means . A. different beginnings and different endings

To lift something from the floor correctly, first bend your knees and squat down. Keep your back and hips(臀部) and waist (腰部) in a line. If you bend over, the muscles ( ~ I$1 ) in your lower back can become hurt easily. If you keep your back and hips straight, the muscles are stronger, because they have much more support. The other muscles can then help the lower back muscles. As you squat down, try to get close to the object as possible. For example, if you are going to pick up a heavy box, squat down directly in front of it. Maybe you will have to spread your knees and legs. Put one knee on each side of the box. Remember at all times to keep your back straight. Put your hands under the object that is in front of you, between your knees. To lift the object, you should stand up slowly. Use your muscles in order to stand up. In other words, lift with your legs, not with your back.
  1. The underlined word "squat" means. A. to bend over your waist B. to bend yourself by bending your legs C. to lower yourself by bending your legs D. to stand straight

In 1977, a dead author of detective stories saved the life of a 19-month-old baby in a most unusual way. The author was Agatha Christie, one of the most successful writers of detective stories in the world. In June 1977, a baby girl became seriously ill in Qatar, near Saudi Arabia. Doctors were unable to find out the cause of her illness with confidence, so she was sent to Hammersmith Hospital in London. She was then only semi-conscious and on the "Dangerously Ill" list. A team of doctors hurried to examine the baby only to discover that they, too, were confused by the very unusual symptoms (症状). While they were discussing the baby's case, a nurse asked to speak to them. "Excuse me," said Nurse Marsha Maitlan, "but I think the baby is suffering from thallium (铊) poisoning." "What makes you think that?" Dr. Brown asked. "Thallium poisoning is extremely rare." "A few days ago, I was reading a novel called A Pale Horse by Agatha Christie," Nurse Maitlan explained. "In the book, somebody uses thallium poison, and all the symptoms are described. They're exactly the same as the baby's." "You're very thoughtful and you may be right," another doctor said. "We'll carry out some tests and find out whether it's thallium or not." Tests showed that the baby had indeed been poisoned by thallium, a rare metallic substance used in making special glass. Once they knew the cause of the illness, the doctors were able to give the baby the correct treatment. She soon recovered and was sent back to Qatar. Later it was reported that the poison might have come from an insecticide (杀虫剂) used in Qatar. Choose the correct answer.
  1. The one who first suggested the correct cause of the baby's illness was . A. a doctor in Qatar B. Nurse Maitlan C. Dr. Brown D. Agatha Christie
  2. The baby was sent to London because . A. she was born there B. the hospitals in Qatar were full at that time C. she was the daughter of a doctor in London D. the Qatar doctors were not sure whether they could cure her
  3. As far as we can tell from the passage, Agatha Christie . A. had never met this baby B. had spent a long time studying the baby's case C. visited the baby in the hospital at Hammersmith D. gave Nurse Maitlan some advice on the phone

  4. It seems likely from the passage that the baby's illness had something to do with . A. a dangerous pair of glasses B. the water in Qatar C. a harmful substance used to kill insects D. a dead writer
  5. When the baby was sent to the hospital in London, her case was considered to be . A. an urgent one B. quite a simple one C. a usual one D. the result of thallium poisoning Keys: BDACA

The expensive shops in a famous arcade (有拱廊的街道) near Piccadilly were just opening. At this time of the morning, the arcade was almost empty. Mr. Taylor, the owner of a jewellery shop was admiring a new window display. Two of his assistants had been working busily since 8 o'clock and had only just finished. Diamond necklaces and rings had been beautifully arranged on a background of black velvet (丝绒). After gazing at the display for several minutes, Mr. Taylor went back into his shop. The silence was suddenly broken when a large car, with its headlights on and its horn blaring (喇
