Today, a large number of families in Great Britain buy furniture, household goods and cars by installments. In the U.S., the figure is much higher than in Great Britain, and people there spend over 10 percent of their income on the installment plan. The price of an article bought on installments is always higher than the price that would be paid by cash. There is a charge for interest. The buyers pays one quarter or one third of the price as a down payment when the goods are delivered to him. He then makes regular payments,

weekly or monthly, until the full price is paid up. The legal ownership of the goods remains with the seller until the final payment has been made. Installment buying has advantages and disadvantages. It can help couples with small incomes to furnish their homes and start housekeeping, It increases the demand for goods, and in this way helps business and employment. There is ,however, the danger that when business is bad, installment buying may end suddenly, making business much worse. This may result in a great increase in unemployment. If the people on the installment plan lose their jobs, they will probably not be able to make their payments. If great numbers of people are not able to pay their installment debts there is a possibility that businessmen cannot collect their debts and will therefore lose money. If businessmen lose money or fail to make a satisfactory profit, it becomes more likely to have a depression. This is why, in some countries, the government controls the installment plan by fixing the amount of the down payment to discourage people from buying more than they can pay for on the installment plan. 31、Which of the following is true about the installment plan? A. British families just use the installment plan to buy furniture. B. More than 10 percent American families buy things on installment. C. Americans spend more on installment buying than British people do. D. The payment of installment buying is easier than buying by cash. 32、Goods bought on installments are more expensive than goods bought by cash because_________. A. the buyer has to pay extra money as interest B. the delivery of the goods charges extra money C. the buyer has to pay a down payment D. the service offered by installment plan charged extra money 33、 What will happen to a buyer if he fails to make the full payment for an item bought on installments? A. He might lose his job B. He will stop owning the item he has bought C. He will have to sell what he has bought D. He will go into debt 34、The advantages of installment buying might include all the followings EXCEPT that _________. A. purchasing power is strengthened B. Employment might be increased C. People develop a good habit of saving money D. Young couples are able to furnish their homes 35、In some countries, the government controls the installment plan to_________.

C The other day my aunt paid me a visit. She was overjoyed. ―I got the highest mark in the mid-term examination!‖ She said. Don‘t be surprised! My aunt is indeed a student, exactly, a college student at the age of 45. ―Compared with the late 70s,‖ she says, ―now college students have many doors.‖ I was shocked when she first told me how she had had no choice in her major. Look at us today! So many doors are open to us! I believe there have never been such abundant opportunities for self-development as we have today. And my aunt told me that we should reach our goals by grasping all these opportunities. The first door is the opportunity to study different subjects that interest us. My aunt was happy to study management, but she could also attend lectures on ancient Chinese poetry and on Shakespearean drama. As for myself, I am an English major, but I may also go to lectures on history. The second door is the door to the outside world. Learning goes beyond classrooms and national boundaries. I have many fellow international classmates, and I am applying to an exchange program with a university abroad. As for my aunt, she is planning to get an MBA degree in the U.K. The third door is the door to life-long learning. Many of my aunt‘s contemporaries say she‘s amazingly up-to-date for a middle-aged woman. She simply responds, ―Age doesn‘t matter. What matters is your attitude. I don‘t think I‘m too old to learn.‖ Yes, she is right. Since the government removed the age limit for college admissions, there are already some untraditional students, sitting with us in the same classrooms. Like them, my aunt is old but young in spirit with incredible energy and determination. The doors open to us also pose challenges. For instance, we are faced with the challenge of a balanced learning, the challenge of preserving our fine tradition while learning from the West, and the challenge of learning continuously while carrying heavy responsibilities to our work and family. So, each door is a test of our courage, ability and judgment, but with the support of my teachers, parents, friends and my aunt, I believe I can meet the challenge head on. 36. Which of the following words can best replace the ―door‖ in the passage? A. challenge B. knowledge C. learning D. opportunity 37. What made the writher‘s aunt overjoyed? A. Having a chance to visit the writer B. Having lots of choices in subjects C. Getting the highest score in her exam D. Getting admission to a university 38. Which of the following statements will the writer‘s aunt agree with? A. No pains, no gains. B. Failure is the mother of success. C. One is never too old to learn. D. Rome isn‘t built in a day. 39. The following word can be used to describe the writer‘s aunt EXCEPT ________. A. fashionable B. traditional C. energetic D. determined

40. Which chart shows the correct structure of the passage?
D A few months ago as I wandered through my parents‘ house, the same house I grew up in, I had a sudden, scary realization. When my parents bought the house, in 1982, they were only two years older than I am now. I tried to imagine myself in two years, ready to settle down and buy the house I‘d still be living in almost 30 years later. It seemed ridiculous. On a practical level, there‘s no way I could afford to buy a house anytime soon. More importantly, I wouldn‘t want to. I‘m not sure where I‘ll be living in two years, or what kind of job I‘ll have. And I don‘t think I‘ll be ready to settle down and stay in one place. So this is probably the generation gap that divides my friends and me from our parents. When our parents were our age, they‘d gotten their education, chosen a career, and were starting to settle into responsible adult lives. My friends and I – ―Generation Y‖ – still aren‘t sure what we want to do with our lives. Whatever we end up doing, we want to make sure we‘re happy doing it. We‘d rather take risks first, try out different jobs, and move from one city to another until we find our favorite place. We‘d rather spend our money on travel than put it in a savings account. This casual attitude toward responsibility has caused some critics to call my generation ―arrogant‖, ―impatient‖, and ―overprotected‖. Some of these complaints have a point. As children we were encouraged to succeed in school, but also to have fun. We grew up in a world full of technological innovation: cell phones, the Internet, instant messaging, and video games. Our parents looked to rise vertically(垂直的)--starting at the bottom of the ladder and slowly making their way to the top, on the same track, often for the same company. That doesn‘t apply to my generation. Because of that, it may take us longer than our parents to arrive at responsible, stable adulthood. But that‘s not necessarily a bad thing. In our desire to find satisfaction, we will work harder, strive for ways to keep life interesting, and gain a broader set of experiences and knowledge than our parents‘ generation did. By Ariel Lewiton 41. When the author walked through her parents‘ house, she _______. A. was frightened that she had no idea what she wanted from life B. realized she should buy a house. C. started to think about her own life D. wondered why her parents had settled down early

第一节 基础写作（共 1 小题，满分 15 分） One possible version. I’m very much honored to give you a speech on healthy breakfast. Some students in our class often go to school without breakfast while others do have breakfast but not a well-balanced one. Consequently, their health and study efficiency are negatively affected. A healthy and well-balanced breakfast should consist of whole grains, eggs and milk, fruits and vegetables. The grain which contains carbohydrates can provide the energy we need every day. Eggs and milk supply protein and fruits and vegetables are good for healthy digestion. Therefore, I strongly suggest that we should get up early and have a well-balanced breakfast before going to school. 第二节 读写任务（共一小题，满分 25 分） One friend of two wrote it down in the sand when he was slapped by the other but engrave it in stone when he was saved during their journey, showing his forgiving being hurt and remembering being helped. After reading this passage, I‘m really moved and learn a lot from what the friend who was slapped and saved did and thought. He is the good example with the real understanding of forgiveness and thankfulness. As far as I‘m concerned, I consider it essential and important for us to forgive and be thankful to others. They are great virtues, which is good to ourselves and the people around us. They can help us keep peace in mind, which is beneficial to our health. Besides, they can help us to get along well with others, contributing to our life and work. I have a real feeling about thankfulness. I come from a poor family in which my parents are both farmers, working very hard from morning till dawn. Everything they do is just for the growth, especially the education of my brother and I. Once I think of them, I can‘t be thankful too much to them and am always determined to perform well at school, and now I really do so. How important thankfulness is to me!
