hearing process．The loss is most marked for high pitches and may require the assistance of a battery-operated hearing aid．More subtle are such declines as those in the processes involved with being immune to disease, which result in a lessened ability of the older organism to cope with infection．Indeed,pneumonia(肺炎) is one of the most common causes of death among the elderly population of most nations． Mixed with true aging processes are disease processes that may be so common as to be mistaken for aging．For instance, the buildup of deposits of fatty materials in arteries (动脉) tends to be progressive with aging; everything else being equal,the narrowing of arteries results in such serious illnesses as stroke or heart attack,occurring with increasing frequency as an individual ages． It is now recognized that atherosclerosis (动脉硬化) is the result of many factors,not only genetic but also environmental high blood pressure,high saturated-fat diets,and smoking, the effects of which become more obvious with the passage of time ．It is therefore an age ? related,but not a universal aging process and can thus usually be controlled． 36.As far as aging is concerned, _____ ． A.the changes inside human body are more important than external changes B.the loss of competence is more significant than that of cells C.the shrinkage of muscles is more significant than the decline in height D.the thinning of hair is less important than the wrinkling of skin 37.Which A.The B.The C.The D.The of the following is a functional decline? reduction in brain nerve cells． decline in memory． loss of cells in hearing process. shrinkage in muscle tissue.
38.Pneumonia is closely related to _____ ． A.the decline in cells of the spinal chord B.the slower rate of reaction C.the decline in the immune system D.the loss of cells in kidneys 39.It is agreed that a person is more likely to suffer from atherosclerosis _____ ． A.as he becomes older B.if his immune system does not work properly C.when the cells of his brain and spinal chord decline D.when the cells in his kidneys decline in number
40.Which of the following statements about atherosclerosis is NOT true? A.If a parent suffers from it, it is most likely that the child also does． B.If a person has high blood pressure, he is more likely to contract(患)it． C.If a person smokes,he is most likely to contract it． D.If the environmental factors are properly controlled,it will be prevented． Questions 41～45 are based on the following passage． A report of a “shooting” created a major stir and a minor mystery yesterday afternoon when police cars and emergency vehicles gathered on the 1000 block of Anta Barbara Street． After questioning numerous witnesses,officers reconstructed this chain of events,according to Sergeant Nick Katzenstein． About 2 p．m. an elderly man was walking along the sidewalk when he came upon three young women sitting on a wall next to a market． One of the women-boyish looking with short hair-was showing the others something that looked like a puncture mark on her upper arm． The man said,“are you all right?”but got no answer． So he continued on until he met a woman friend and told her that a boy near the market was getting a shot． The woman misunderstood．She telephoned police and reported that a boy was being shot．That brought several officers in police cars, firemen in a rescue truck and doctors in an ambulance with siren blaring to the scene． Officers couldn ? t find either a victim or the woman who had reported the shooting． They questioned the three young women sitting on the wall． An auto had backfired (回火) in the parking lot,one of the three recalled ．Perhaps that was the “shot”．Several other people were questioned,but none could shed light on the shooting． Finally officers found the woman who had made the report． She directed them to the “boy” on the wall, who then recalled having showed her friends a newly received “shot” (注射) on her arm as the elderly man was walking past． 41.The “shooting” reported yesterday _____ ． A.went unnoticed B.caused great trouble C.attracted public attention D.caused great tension 42.Why did the man ask the “boy”:“Are you all right?” A.Because the “boy” told the other two girls that she was shot on the arm． B.Because he saw the “boy” looked pale when he went past．
C.Because he heard a shot and saw a mark on the “boy's” arm． D.Because the “boy” showed him a puncture mark on her arm． 43.When the police asked other people on the scene, _____ ． A.they remembered there was a backfire from a car B.they said they did not remember any shot C.they told the police to ask the three girls D.they remembered the old man had said something 44.It turned out what was considered as a shot was _____ ． A.fired by a gun in the parking lot B.a story made up by the old man C.a story made up by the woman D.a loud sound given out by a car 45.The passage is _____ ． A.a news report B.an newspaper commentary C.an essay D.a humorous story Questions 46～50 are based on the following passage． The 15th and 16th centuries were a period of radical social,political,and intellectual developments． The explorations of the world; the Reformation, with its emphasis on individual faith; the rise of commercial urban society; and the dramatic appearance of new ideas in all areas of culture stimulated the development of a new philosophical world view． The medieval view of the world as a hierarchical (层次的) order of beings created and governed by God was replaced by the mechanistic picture of the world as a vast machine, the parts of which move according to strict physical laws, without purpose or will． The aim of human life was no longer looked on as preparation for salvation (拯救) in the next world, but rather as the satisfaction of people's natural desires． Political organizations and moral principles ceased to be regarded as reflections of God's command and came to be seen as practical devices created by humans． In this new philosophical view, experience and reason became the sole standards of truth． The first great spokesman for the new philosophy was the English philosopher and statesman Francis Bacon, who attacked reliance on authority and verbal argument and criticized Aristotlian (亚里士多德的) logic as useless for the discovery of new laws． Bacon called for a new scientific method based on inductive generalization from careful observation and experiment． He was the first to formulate rules of inductive inference． The work of Italian physicist and astronomer Galileo was of even
greater importance in the development of a new world view． Galileo brought attention to the importance of applying mathematics to the formulation of scientific laws． This he accomplished by creating the science of mechanics, which applied the principles of geometry to the motions of bodies． The success of mechanics in discovering reliable and useful laws of nature suggested to Galileo and to later scientists that all nature is designed according to mechanical laws． 46.The new philosophical world view was that _____ ． A.the world was hierarchical with man at the bottom B.the world was a hierarchical order of beings created and governed by God C.the world was built on strict mechanical physical laws D.the world was a giant machine which man was unwilling to build 47.Before A.were B.were C.were D.were the 15th and 16th century, moral principles _____ ． stricter than laws looked on as God's orders seen as practical devices regarded as people's natural desires
48.What was the first step in the new philosophy? A.Inference． B.Generalization． C.Authority and verbal argument． D.Observation and experiment． 49.According to the new philosophy, truth should be judged by _____ ． A.moral standards B.its practicality C.experience and reason D.all of the above 50.Galileo _____ ． A.brought people's attention to mathematics B.was the greatest contributor to the new world view C.formulated reliable and useful laws of nature D.applied geometry to the motions of stars Questions 51～55 are based on the following passage． The first contests resembling the World Series were held during the 1880s, when the leading baseball clubs of the two major leagues-the National League and the American Association-agreed to play in exhibition games following their regular seasons． The name “World Championship Series” arose during this period,when promoters and journalists sought
to arouse interest among fans．These championship series were often unsuccessful,marked by disorganization,weak fan support,and disputes among baseball clubs．The series was not held every year and ended completely after the 1891 season, when the American Association broke up． The American League was founded in 1901 and became the chief competitor of the National League．The first World Series was held in 1903,when Barney Dreyfuss,owner of the NL champion Pittsburgh Pirates,challenged Henry Killilea,owner of the AL champion Boston Pilgrims,to a best ? of ? nine ? game series．The first game was played in Boston , Massachusetts,on October 1,before a crowd of more than 16000 fans． The 1903 World Series was a tremendous success．Thousands of fans attended every game,traveling by train between the two cities, and the players responded with exciting performances．The following year, however,the series was not held． 1904 the Boston Pilgrims were scheduled In to play the New York Giants．But Giants owner John T.Brush and manager John J.McGraw had quarreled repeatedly with the founder and president of the American League, Ban Johnson．As a result, the Giants refused to play． Public criticism was so great that the Giants, who were again NL champions the next year,agreed to play the AL champion Philadelphia Athletics in the 1905 World Series．The two leagues created an agreement that became the foundation for modern World Series competition．The Giants won the series in five games． The most famous World Series in history took place in 1919,when the Cincinnati Reds beat the Chicago White Sox in eight games．The following year,seven White Sox players were accused of fixing,or intentionally losing, the series in return for bribes from professional gamblers．The seven players were banned from baseball for life． Buck Weaver, who did not take a bribe,was banned because he knew of the fix and did not report it． The 1919 team became known as the Black Sox． 51.The first World Series took place _____ ． A.in 1903 B.in 1880s C.in 1919 D.in 1905 52.Which of the following was NOT a factor that made the series in the 1880s unsuccessful?

Russians at the Alma River, Balaklava, and Inkerman, the war went on, as the Russians refused to accept the allies ? peace terms． Finally, on September 9,1855,Sevastopol fell, but only after Austria threatened to enter the war did Russia agree to make peace． The Treaty of Paris, signed on March 30,1856,was a major setback for Russia's Middle Eastern policy． Russia was forced to return southern Bessarabia and the mouth of the Danube to Turkey; Moldavia,Walachia, and Serbia were placed under an international rather than a Russian guarantee and the Russians were forbidden to maintain a navy on the Black Sea． In military terms, the war was a tactless, needlessly costly affair． The commanders on both sides proved remarkably unsuitable, wasting lives in senseless engagements． Supply services for both armies were affected by inefficiency and corruption, and medical services were terrible． The British nurse Florence Nightingale won fame by her efforts to improve the care of the sick and wounded, but more men died of disease than in battle． Nevertheless, the war was an event of major significance in European history． 61.Why did Italy go to the war?

the center. Questions 36～40 are based on the following passage. Electronics and computer systems are currently used in advanced traffic management to improve traffic control.Traffic along major highways in some cities is monitored by remote cameras,radar,or sensors in the roadway.A central computer system analyzes the information.If roads are crowded,traffic flow can be improved by automatically adjusting traffic-signal timing,controlling traffic flow on freeway ramps(坡道),or providing information to drivers by means of electronic signs along the roads. Advanced traveler-information systems are currently available in some new automobiles. These are navigational systems into which drivers enter their destination.An electronic map then displays the best route on a small screen,or a voice provides directions along the route,including directions on when to turn.These systems use a transponder,or a transmitting and receiving device,in the vehicle, and a satellite-based global positioning system to discover the exact location of the vehicle along its route. Automated vehicle-control technologies are currently under development to improve highway safety. These devices are aboard the vehicle and can alert a driver to an upcoming danger or,in an emergency,can ignore the actions of the driver.A radar system has been adapted for use in school buses that detects the presence of a person near the vehicle and then warns the driver.Radar and sensors are also used to detect another vehicle in the driver's blind spot-that is,in a position that is not visible in the mirrors.The most ambitious ITS project is the automated highway,on which vehicles can travel at high speeds and at close intervals by means of on-board radar,vehicle-position and engine sensors,actuators(启动器)for acceleration and braking,and computer links between vehicles. 36.In a central computer system,the purpose of putting sensors in the roadway is _____ . A.to analyse information B.to find out traffic accidents C.to catch speeding drivers D.to obtain traffic information 37.The navigational systems help the drivers by _____ . A.sending to them information about the destination B.adjusting traffic signal timing C.finding out the best route for them D.discovering the direction in which they are driving
38.A transponder _____ . A.is a vehicle that can move all by itself B.is a device fixed in cars C.is a satellite based global positioning system D.is an electronic map 39.An automated safety device aboard the vehicles _____ .

Questions 41～45 are based on the following passage. In the simplest terms,a market is the palce where seller meets buyer to exchange products for money.Traditional markets still function in many parts of the world.Even in the United States,during summer months,there are farmers' markets where direct selling and buying take place between producers and consumers.Most service industries still operate at this market level. Manufacturing industries and most agricultural enterprises are more distant from the consumer.Their products pass through several hands-truckers,warehouse workers,wholesalers,and retailers before reaching the final consumer. Products,or commodities are usually divided into two types:consumer and industrial. Consumer goods are those that are sold to final users,the customers.These goods include food,clothing,automobiles,television sets,appliances,and all those things people go to stores to purchase. Industrial goods are those that are sold to companies or other businesses for use in manufacturing or other purposes.Automobile makers buy many of the parts used to assemble cars.A tire manufacturer buys rubber,synthetic or otherwise,with which to make tires. Eventually these materials will end up in the hands of final users:the owners of the cars.The nature of industrial goods depends on the nature of the goods to be made for final users.The price of industrial goods and raw materials will influence the price of final goods,those that the consumer buys.
41.It can be inferred that _____ . A.most of the products exchanged at traditional markets are consumer goods. B.most of the products bought and sold at traditional markets are industrial goods C.most farmers lived far away from marketplaces and never sold their products directly. D.most service industries have not yet developed mature markets for their products. 42.Medical equipment sold to doctors is an instance of _____ . A.consumer product B.industrial product C.raw material D.direct exchanged product 43.By saying “Manufacturing industries and most agricultural enterprises are more distant from the consumers”(para.2),the author means _____ . A.their products are never sold directly into consumers' hands B.they usually build their factories far away from markets C.they usually need agents to sell and deliver their goods into consumers' hands D.they have used trucks to carry their products to consumers' hands 44.Paper sold to a publishing industry _____ . A.will influence the price of paper industry B.is a product delivered to the final user C.is a consumer product D.is an industrial product 45.A wholesaler(para 3,the second sentence)is _____ . A.a person who sells a great variety of foods B.an agent who deals with industrial products C.a person that manages big stores and factories D.an agent that buys and sells goods in great quantities Questions 46～50 are based on the following passage. Lighthouse,structure from which light is projected at night,or which serves as a marker by day,to guide ships sailing in coastal waters.Constructed at important points on a coastline,on isolated or sunken rocks,and at entrances to harbors,lighthouses have been employed to safeguard boats since early times.The earliest known,built on the Mediterranean Sea,were constructed in the 7th century BC .Perhaps,the most monumental lighthouse built in ancient times,one of the so-called
Seven Wonders of the World,was the Pharos at Alexandria.Ancient lighthouses were simple structures with beacon fires on them.Moderm lights are powered by electricity and are frequently equipped with various types of electrically powered fog signals and auxiliary radio navigation systems.Lights used may vary in power from 10 candlepower to 28 million candlepower,depending on the importance of the traffic they serve,customary weather conditions,and the requirements of visibility.In areas where it is impractical to construct buildings to house a beacon,lightships and lighted buoys are often used. Modern lighthouses project light rays produced by geowing lamps.The light is concentrated and projected by a series of revolving lenses(镜).The type of lens most frequently used in the past was the dioptric lens,or Fresnel lens,which consisted of a central glass disk,surrounded by concentric glass rings that gradually decrease in thickness as they recede from the center.When a series of dioptric lenses are placed on a revolving frame with a lamp at its center,it produces a flash for each lens at each revolution of the frame. Today most lighthouses use rotating beacons similar to those found at airports.These beacons usually consist of high-powered light source,a reflecting mirror on one side of the light source,and a condensing lens on the other .In the U.S.,maintenance of lighthouses, lightships, lighted buoys, and other aids to navigation is the responsibility of the U.S.Coast Guard. 46.It can be inferred from the first sentence that _____ . A.a lighthouse is only useful for guiding ships sailing along the coast B.a lighthouse is useful only in the daytime C.a lighthouse is always built along the coastline D.a lighthouse can be used as a signpost in the daytime 47.On which of the following places is a lighthouse usually built? A.On an isolated rock along the coast. B.On a sunken ship at a harbour. C.On a rock under the surface of water. D.On water where it is most dangerous to sail ships. 48.Which of the following is TRUE? A.The greatest ancient lighthouse was built in the 7th century B.C. B.Modern lighthouses use a variety of colours to send different signals. C.Some lighthouses can only be as bright as candles. D.The more important a lighthouse is,the brighter it usually is.
49.With the dioptric lens, _____ . A.the glass is usually thick and bright B.the lens revolves following the sunlight C.the lamp is turned on when the lens revolves D.the glass at the rim (边沿)is the thinnest 50.The duty of the U.S.Coast Guard is to _____ . A.make sure lighthouses work properly B.build lighthouses and other aids for navigation C.also safeguard lighthouses at airports D.is now developing high-powered lighthouses Questions 51～55 are based on the following passage. The machine age,which began with the Industrial Revolution and continues to this day,developed from a group of inventions,of which the most important include the use of fossil fuels such as coal as sources of energy,the improvement of metallurgical(冶炼的)processes,the development of electricity and electronics,the invention of the internal-combustion engine,and the use of metal and cement in construction work.Current developments in the use of energy promise to introduce a new age in human inventiveness. Early inventors were usually isolated and unable to support themselves through their inventions.In some cases,although two individuals working independently achieved the same innovation at the same time,only one was recognized for the discovery.For example,the American inventors Elisha Gray and Alexander Graham Bell applied for a patent on the telephone on the same day. Today most modern inventions and discoveries take place in large research organizations supported by universities,government agencies,private industries,or privately funded foundations.Because of this,ascribing any single invention to a specific person has become difficult.Researchers in modern laboratories are often members of a project;the planning and development of the project is usually the work of many individuals.The atomic bomb,for example,was developed during World War Ⅱ under the guidance of a small group of leading scientists of many nationalities who directed a much larger group of scientists and technicians,most of whom were unaware of the purpose of the project. 51.The development of electronics is a creation that _____ . A.belongs to the machine age B.is part of the Industrial Revolution C.is a common effort of groups of scientists and technicians D.comes from a group of inventions
52.Bell was universally known as the inventor of telephone because _____ . A.he was more famous than Elisha Gray then B.his telephone model was better than Gray's C.his model was patented before Gray's D.Gray worked in an isolated laboratory 53.Modern inventions often take place in large research organizations so _____ . A.they have to get sufficient money from several agencies B.it is not easy to identify the specific inventor C.it is very difficult for any single person to direct a project D.they need more scientists and technicians 54.The example of the atomic bomb illustrates the fact that _____ . A.many scientists are often not aware of the purpose of their research B.modern inventions and discoveries are often the common efforts of many scientists C.a small group of scientists can guide the work of a large group of scientists D.modern scientists do not care about the application of their research 55.The passage is mainly about _____ . A.the machine age B.the Industrial Revolution C.human inventiveness D.characteristics of modern inventions Questions 56～60 are based on the following passage. A dialect is a variety of a language spoken by an identifiable subgroup of people. Traditionally,linguists have applied the term dialect to geographically distinct language varieties,but in current usage the term can include speech varieties characteristic of other socially definable groups.Determining whether two speech varieties are dialects of the same language,or whether they have changed enough to be considered distinct languages,has often proved a difficult decision Linguists usually cite mutual intelligibility as the major criterion in making this decision.If two speech varieties are not mutually comprehensible,then the speech varieties are different languages;if they are mutually intelligible but differ systematically from one another,then they are dialects of the same language. There are problems with this definition,however,because many levels of mutual intelligibility exist,and linguists must decide at what level
speech varieties should no longer be considered mutually intelligible.This is difficult to establish in practice. Intelligibility has a large psychological component:If a speaker of one speech variety wants to understand a speaker of another speech variety,understanding is more likely than if this were not the case.In addition,chains of speech varieties exist in which adjacent(相邻的) speech varieties are mutually intelligible,but speech varieties farther apart in the chain are not.Furthermore,sociopolitical factors almost inevitably influence the process of distinguishing between dialects and languages. In ordinary usage,the term dialect can also mean a variety of a language that is distinct from what is considered the standard form of that language.Linguists,however,consider the standard language to be simply one dialect of a language.For example,the dialect of French spoken in Paris became the standard language of France not because of any linguistic features of this dialect but because Paris was the political and cultural center of the country. 56.According to the passage,in modern linguistics,a dialect is a language variety in terms of _____ . A.geography B.social group C.speaking rather than writing D.both A and B 57.Two varieties are linguistically considered two languages when _____ . A.they reveal some systematic distinctive features B.they are quite different though mutually intelligible C.their speakers can not understand each other D.they are mutually intelligible though different 58.The dividing line between two languages or two varieties _____ . A.is determined by the judgment of the speakers B.is quite arbitrary C.may be determined by political factors D.is determined by the distance between them 59.The word that is closest in meaning to “intelligible” in the last sentence of paral is _____ . A.mutual B.comprehensible C.definable D.identifiable
60.Linguistically,the standard language _____ . A.is officially established B.is very formal C.is a variety of that language D.is the political dialect of the language Questions 61～65 are based on the following passage. Roller Skating is a recreation and sport of gliding over a surface on roller skates,which have wheels built onto a special boot.Formerly,roller skates were made of metal wheels attached to frames that were fixed onto conventional shoes.Roller skating is popular throughout the world,especially in North America,Europe,and Austra,and has increased in general popularity since the 1930s with the building of indoor rings.The introduction in the 1970s of plastic wheels,which allow for greater freedom of movement and more intricate maneuvers,increased the popularity of roller skating,both indoors and outdoors.Manufacturers borrowed further from the design of ice skates to produce in-line skates,also called Rollerblades after a principal manufacturer of the equipment.The wheels on in-line skates are arranged in a single row,and the faster skates became popular during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Another modification of roller skates is the skateboard.Skateboards are small,narrow boards,about 60 cm long and 25 cm wide,and are made of wood or a manufactured material such as plastic or fiberglass.The boards are mounted on four wheels and require balance to ride,in a technique similar to surfing. The four main types of competition in roller skating are artistic skating,speed skating,roller hockey,and the roller derby.Artistic skating includes figures similar to those of ice skating and dancing with a partner.Speed-skating contests take place over various distances.Roller hockey is played informally or on special rings,according to rules similar to those of ice hockey. The invention of roller skates is usually attributed to Joseph Merlin,a Dutchman of the early 18th century,who conceived the idea of adapting ice skating for dry ground by affixing wooden spools to a supporting plate .The first skates with metal wheels were made in 1763;the first modern,so-called rocking skates,which enable a person to move easily through alternate shiftings of weight,were patented in 1863 by the American inventor James Leonard Plimpton.More durable ball-bearing skates with ball-bearing wheels were introduced later in the 19th century.These popularized roller skating. 61.From the first and third paragraph,we learn that roller skating _____ . A.is similar to surfing
B.takes place on a plastic board C.is developed from ice skating D.uses blades gliding over a surface 62.Plastic wheels made roller skating all the more popular chiefly because _____ . A.they became less expensive B.they were lighter C.they made more skills possible D.they allowed faster movement 63.The skateboard _____ .
