    Questions 51 to 55 are based on the following passage.
    Could someone be swallowed by a whale and live? In 1891, a young English sailor named James Bartley was, and he did.
    Bartley was a crew member on the whaling ship Star of the East. As his boat closed in on a whale, the animal lashed out with its tail. The whale's blow lifted the boat into the air and capsized it. Sailors in another boat captured the whale, and the overturned boat was turned upright, but Bartley was missing.
    The next morning, as sailors were cutting up the dead whale, they noticed a movement in its stomach. When it was opened, Bartley was found inside it! He was unconscious, and his face, neck, and hands had been bleached white by the whale's stomach juices. Other than that, he seemed unhurt.
    Later, when Bartley recovered, he described his experience. He had been aware of being in the water. Then he was in darkness, sliding along a slimy passageway. The heat was so great that it made him pass out. When he woke, he was back on board the ship!

    Genre: Comedy and Romance
    Starring: Diane Lane, John Cusack, Dermot Mulroney, Elizabeth Perkins
    Directed By: Gary David Goldberg
    Released By: Warner Bros.
    Run Time: 98 mins.

    Synopsis:
    A woman finds herself drafted into the battle of finding the perfect man in this romantic comedy. Sarah Nolan (Diane Lane) is a kindergarten teacher in her mid-thirties who is still dealing with the emotional aftermath of her divorce eight months ago. While her sisters, Christine (Ali Hillis) and Carol (Elizabeth Perkins), both think Sarah needs to start dating again, Sarah herself isn't so sure. Carol decides to force the issue by posting Sarah's photo and profile on an Internet dating site, and soon a number of seemingly eligible bachelors are sending her e-mails in hopes of a date. However, nearly every man she meets turns out to be a loser, with the exception of Jake (John Cusack), who is smart, good looking, and even brings along a dog for their walk in the park (though he doesn't tell her the pooch was borrowed for the occasion). However, Sarah also makes the acquaintance of Bob (Dermot Mulroney), the divorced father of one of her students, and she finds herself having to choose between two potentially worthwhile men. Meanwhile, Sarah's widowed father, Bill (Christopher Plummer), decides to give Internet dating a try, and lands himself a new steady (情侣) in Dolly (Stockard Channing). Must Love Dogs is based on the best-selling novel of the same title by Claire Cook.

    Section D Summary (10 points)
    Directions: In this part, there is one passage followed by a summary. Read the passage carefully and complete the summary with the appropriate words from the passage. Remember to write the answers on the Answer Sheet.
    Questions 71 to 75 are based on the following passage.
    Bright colors stir up a range of feelings. For example, the color red can cause people to feel excited. In fact, red can even make a person feel hungrier. Yellow can increase energy. Therefore, a room with strong red and yellow colors would be a good place to eat a lot of food quickly. On the other hand, darker colors, like blue can help people calm down. A blue room can be a good place to study, since people can concentrate more easily. However, it is easier to nod off in a blue room than in a red one.
    The colors of clothes can also affect feelings. Black and dark blue clothes can produce a sense of strength and seriousness. Therefore, a person in a black suit can seem like a leader more easily than one wearing white. If a person is wearing a dark suit and a red tie, he may seem both powerful and energetic. This may be why many politicians and businessmen wear dark suits with red ties. Brown and green clothes can produce a sense of confidence. It may seem easier to trust a person wearing green. Therefore, many people wear green or brown for meetings or interviews.
    Choice of color, for rooms as well as clothes, is not only about appearance.

    Directions:Translate the underlined sentences of the following passage into Chinese.Remember to write the answers on the Answer Sheet.
    Many people have unsuccessful interviews because they aren't fully prepared. (91)This may be because they haven't done their research properly and can't answer questions about the company they are hoping to join. Or it may be because they are nervous and don't perform well. Going for a job interview is never easy, whether it's for a full-time career, or a part-time job during the holidays. (92)However, it is possible to learn how to do well in an interview simply by following a few basic rules.
    Firstly, find out as much as you can about the company or the organization. Write notes about the job you are trying to get and make a list of questions you can ask. Then make sure you know exactly when and where the interview is. Look up the location on a map. (93)Find out about bus and train timetables if necessary and try to predict exactly how long the journey will take. If you are really worried, make the journey a few days before your interview so you can find out what you need in advance.
    (94)Another important rule is to plan what you are going to wear well in advance. Make sure it's clean, it fits and it's comfortable! Clean your shoes and sort out what you are taking in your bag or briefcase. All you should do the night before is have a quick look at your notes. Go to bed early so you can get up in good time and calmly get yourself ready.(95) When you walk into the interview room look directly at your interviewers and shake hands with them.
