    Part V Reading Comprehension (25 minutes, 35 points)

    Section A Multiple Choice (5 points)

    Directions: In this section, there is 1 passage with 5 questions or unfinished statements. For each of them, there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. You should decide on the best choice. Then mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the centre.

    Questions 56 to 60 are based on the following passage.

    Federal Express is a company that specializes in rapid overnight delivery of high-priority packages. The first company of its type, Federal Express was founded by the youthful Fred Smith in 1971, when he was only 28 years old. Smith had actually developed the idea for the rapid delivery service in a term paper for an economics class when he was a student at Yale University. The term paper reputedly received a less-than-stellar grade because of the infeasibility of the project that Smith had outlined. The model that Smith proposed had never been tried; it was a model that was efficient to operate but at the same time was very difficult to institute.

    Smith achieved efficiency in his model by designing a system that was separate from the passenger system and could, therefore, focus on how to deliver packages most efficiently. His strategy was to have his own planes so that he could create his own schedules and to ship all packages through the centralized hub city of Memphis, a set-up which resembles the spokes on the wheel of a bicycle. With this combination of his own planes and hub set-up, he could get packages anywhere in the United States overnight.

    What made Smith's idea difficult to institute was the fact that the entire system had to be created before the company could begin operations. He needed a fleet of aircraft to collect packages from airports every night and deliver them to Memphis, where they were immediately sorted and flown out to their new destinations; he needed a fleet of trucks to deliver packages to and from the various airports; he needed facilities and trained staff all in place to handle the operation. Smith had a $4 million inheritance from his father, and he managed to raise an additional 91 million dollars from venture capitalists to get the company operating.

    Questions:

    56. The most appropriate title for this passage is _______ .

    A. The Problems and Frustrations of a Business Student

    B. The Importance of Business Studies

    C. The Capitalization of Federal Express

    D. The Implementation of a Successful Business

    57. What is stated in the passage about Smith's term paper?

    A. Smith submitted it through a delivery service.

    B. It was written by a student of Smith's.

    C. The grade was not quite satisfactory.

    D. The professor thought it had great potential.

    58. What was Smith's key idea?

    A. That he should focus on passenger service.

    B. That package delivery should be separate from passenger service.

    C. That packages could be delivered on other companies' planes.

    D. That passenger service had to be efficient.

    59. Which of the following drawings most closely resembles a hub?


    60. It can be inferred from the passage that Smith selected Memphis as his hub city because it _______ .

    A. was near the middle of the country

    B. had a large number of passenger aircraft

    C. already had a large package delivery service

    D. was a favorite passenger airport

    Section B Short Answer Questions (20 points)

    Directions: In this section, there are 2 passages followed by 10 questions or unfinished statements. Read the passages carefully, and answer the questions in the fewest possible words (not exceeding 10 words). Remember to write the answers on the Answer Sheet.

    Questions 61 to 65 are based on the following passage.

    A call home can cost £1.37 a min

    BRITISH tourists are still ripped off by mobile phone firms charging over the odds for “roaming” services, the European Commission has found.

    Calls made or received on mobiles while abroad cost up to £1.37 a minute—or 19 times as much as domestic calls, a study revealed.


    Users have to pay roaming charges when using a foreign network, under an agreement with their own operator.

    Mobiles automatically switch to a local network when outside the UK.

    Companies such as Vodafone and T-Mobile are accused of abusing their dominant position by charging high fees and passing them on to customers.

    British operator Vodafone and T-Mobile's parent company Deutsche Telekom are guilty of anti-competitive practices in Germany, the EC claims.

    If found guilty, both could be fined millions of pounds for abusing their monopoly. Vodafone is appealing against earlier EC allegations that its British roaming rates are “unfair and excessive”.

    Jonathan Morris, of What Mobile? magazine, said: “If people use their phone when away, they can rack up hundreds of pounds quickly. Making quick calls won't help as calls are charged by the minute, not the second.”

    Questions:

    61. Mobile phone firms cheat British tourists by making them pay too much money for ______________.

    62. Which mobile phone company is cheapest to call UK from Australia?

    63. If found guilty, which two mobile phone firms could be fined millions of pounds for abusing their monopoly?

    64. What are the European Commission's allegations about Vodafone?

    65. How will people be charged if they use their phone when away?

    Questions 66 to 70 are based on the following passage.

    Computer users fed up with hacker attacks and other security threats that exploit holes in Microsoft software are increasingly turning to alternatives such as open source Internet browsers developed by Mozilla.

    “It's reflective of a trend that we've seen over the last year with more web users becoming frustrated with the Internet experience,” said Chris Hoffmann of the Mozilla Foundation, a non-profit group supported by Sun Microsystems, IBM and other companies, backing as an alternative to Microsoft.

    Much of that frustration has centered on Microsoft, which has been heavily criticized for producing software vulnerable to hand virus writers. Microsoft has responded with a series of patches designed to plug vulnerabilities in its Windows operating system, Internet Explorer web browser and other software.

    But computer owners are growing weary of continuously updating software to protect against new threats. One incident last month enabled hackers to gain access to web surfers' computers by taking advantage of vulnerabilities in Microsoft's browser.

    Hackers could then install remote access Trojan programs that enabled them to control a victim's computer. The hackers could also install software to capture a victim's keystrokes to steal data such as bank account numbers and passwords.

    Mr. Hoffmann hoped publicity stemming from Microsoft's security woes(灾难) would translate into a market share increase for Mozilla's software, which includes the new highly regarded Firefox Internet browser.

    But Mozilla suffered a setback last week when it was forced to issue a software patch to counter a newly discovered vulnerability affecting its Internet browsers.

    Still, Mr. Hoffmann said Microsoft's security woes stem in part from the way its browser has been integrated into Windows for user convenience. Security experts agree that has made it easier for hackers to exploit computers running on Microsoft software.

    Others suggest Microsoft has been targeted by hackers and virus writers simply because more than 90 per cent of the world's computers run on the software giant's operating system.

    Questions:

    66. What is the meaning of the phrase “fed up with” (Para.1)?

    67. It can be guessed that the word “plug” (Para.3) means ________________.

    68. More web users have become frustrated because _______________.

    69. What happened to Mozilla's Internet browsers last week?

    70. How would Microsoft be less vulnerable?

    Questions 71 to 80 are based on the following passage.

    Brad & Jen: Still Co-workers

    Superstar Hollywood couple Pitt, currently starring in the crime caper Ocean's Twelve, and Aniston, best known for her TV role as Rachel Green in Friends, have separated after 4.5 years of marriage, but they remain “committed and caring friends”. The announcement of their split followed months of tabloid stories about spousal ups and downs, including reports that Pitt, 41, wanted to become a father but Aniston, 35, was reluctant to start a family.

    Aniston had been photographed recently without her wedding ring, but just two days ago the New York Post splashed a picture of the couple on its front page with a circle around Aniston's hand and the headline: “The Ring's Back On!”

    Pitt, one of Hollywood's most sought-after leading men, and Aniston, who became a household name on the long-running NBC television comedy Friends, met on a dinner date in 1998. They were married in a lavish, celebrity-studded wedding in the seaside California resort of Malibu on July 29, 2000. News of their breakup came in an understated announcement released late on Friday afternoon through “People” magazine.

    “We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate,” they said: “For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any of the speculation reported by the tabloid media. This decision is a result of much thoughtful consideration. We happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and admiration for one another. We ask in advance for your kindness and sensitivity in the coming months.”

    Brad and Jen may be history, but their production company will soldier on. The future of the former power couple's Plan B Entertainment shingle, formed with new Paramount Pictures CEO Brad Grey, has been the subject of much speculation since Pitt and Aniston announced their split. Now reps for both stars say they hope to remain producing partners and that Plan B will continue putting out films in the meantime. However, with Pitt and Aniston readjusting to the single life and Grey getting used to life atop the “mount”, it's possible that certain Plan B projects in earlier stages of development could eventually be dropped.

    Statements:

    71. Aniston wanted to start a family.

    72. Aniston was once photographed without her wedding ring, which indicates her separation with Pitt.

    73. They got married after they knew each other for more than seven years.

    74. They announced their split in “People” magazine.

    75. Pitt and Aniston got separated after thoughtful consideration.

    76. Pitt and Aniston became famous because of their excellent performance in the movies.

    77. They promised that they would not interfere with each other after their separation.

    78. They will be kind and sensitive to the media in the coming months.

    79. Pitt and Aniston will hopefully continue to cooperate in film production.

    80. Pitt and Aniston's separation won't affect their projects.

    Part VI Cloze (10 minutes, 10 points)

    Directions: There are 10 blanks in the passage. For each blank, the first letter of the word has been given. Read the passage below and think of the word which best fits each blank. Use only one word in each blank. Remember to write the answers on the Answer Sheet.

    Throughout history people have always communicated with one another, not only by speech but also by movements of the hands and body. It is, however, only i 81 the last few years that these aspects of communication have been studied at all widely. This type of communication is k 82 as body language or non-verbal communication.

    People sometimes wonder if you can learn how body language works. It is of course p 83 to read books on the subject but you also need to spend time observing people's m 84 . A railway station is a particularly good place for such o 85 , as here people can be seen openly expressing eagerness, sorrow, delight, impatience and many other human emotions by means of movement.

    If you turn down the sound on your television set and try to understand what is h 86 simply by watching the picture you will learn even more about communication w 87 words. By turning the sound back up every five minutes or so, it is possible to check h 88 accurate your understanding is.

    Having studied the art of body language you will have a definite advantage at a boring party. You will be able to sit on your own for the whole evening and thoroughly enjoy y 89 by both watching and interpreting the body language of all the other p 90 there.

    (91) Business is becoming more international and secretaries will increasingly need international communication skills. English is often the only means of communication, but as two seminars at the forthcoming London Secretary Show will attempt to point out, there are many advantages for British secretaries in not simply falling back on the convenience of saying it in English.

    In the UK, ironically, despite the fact that the country is becoming more popular as a location for international business, the reputation of the local workforce for linguistic expertise is plummeting. (92) Vicky Collins will focus on this in the first part of her seminar, and prove that communication across language and cultural barriers is easier than most British secretaries imagine. “I am not advocating instant fluency in five foreign languages for every secretary, but as any traveler will testify, a little knowledge in a foreign language is a matter of basic politeness, which gets any transaction, business or otherwise, off to a good start. It is really quite easy to learn a language superficially. Secretaries should surely be able to offer at least basic hospitality, such as asking a visitor to sit down, in their own first language.”

    Collins has written and published a series of guides on the business use of a number of languages. Her seminar at The London Secretary Show will move on to cover global communications as a whole, especially the issue of sensibility to other cultures. (93) Collins explains: “The business cultures of some countries offer more potential pitfalls than others. The wrong message can be conveyed as easily by body language as by the spoken word.” Collins warns British business people against the common British and American custom of beginning a meeting with a joke or light-hearted remark, for example. This could well create an unfavorable impression among clients used to a more formal business culture where work and play are kept apart.

    Teresa Watts will be conducting a seminar on coping on the telephone in French, German and Spanish. She says there is no knowing when such skills might become necessary. “Even if a secretary currently never has to deal with clients who do not speak English, it may be necessary in the future. And a secretary is often the first point of contact between the company and the outside world. (94) It is quite possible that, as such, secretaries may well find themselves liaising (保持联络) between the English-speaking world and a non-English speaking company.”

    Watts believes the same methods can be applied to secretaries. “It is not generally assumed that secretaries will be able to pass the time of day with clients in another language, but the language being spoken should be identified, and some sign should be given to the caller that they will be passed on to someone who can deal with the call.” she says. (95) Such an approach also requires no knowledge of irregular verbs or complicated tenses. Even a handful of such phrases can increase confidence and make the experience.
