PartⅣ Reading Comprehension. (3’* 20 = 60’)Directions: There are four passages in this section. Each section is followed by some 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 and write your answer on the Answer Sheet. Passage 1 It remains to be seen whether the reserves of raw materials would be sufficient to supply a world economy which would have grown by 500 per cent. Southeast Asia alone would have an energy consumption five times greater than that of Western Europe in 1970. Incidentally, if the underdeveloped countries started using up pet petrol at the same rate as the industrialized areas, then world reserves would already be exhausted by 1985. All this only goes to show just how important it is to set up a plan to conserve and divide up fairly natural resources on a world-wide scale. This is a matter of life and death because world population is exploding at an incredible rate. By the middle of the next century population will expand every year by as much as it did in the first 1500 years after Christ. In the southern, poor part of the globe, the figures are enough to make your hair stand on end. Even supposing that steps are taken to stabilize world population in the next fifty years, the number of inhabitants per square kilometer will increase by from 4 in the United States to 140 in Southeast Asia. What can we do about it? In the first hypothesis we do nothing. By the year 2000, the southern parts of the world would then have a population greater than the total world population today. Calcutta would have 60 million inhabitants. It is unthinkable. Alternatively, we could start acting tight now to bring births under control within fifteen years ago so that population levels off. Even then the population in the southern areas would not stop growing for seventy-five years. 71. By the year 2000 the world economy will have grown by ______. A. 500 per cent B．100 per cent C. four times D. an unknown amount 72. World petrol reserves will be used up by 1985 if ______. A. Western European consumption continues to expand B. Southeast Asia does not limit its consumption C. underdeveloped countries start to use petrol at the same rate as Western Europe D. World population continues to expand 73. If we took effective measures right now, the world’s population _________. A. could stabilize in thirty-five years’ time B. would not stop growing for seventy-five years C. would stop growing in about fifteen years’ time from now D. could stabilize in about seventy-five years’ time 74. The author suggests in the passage that _________. A. world petrol supplies will have been exhausted by 1985 B. we need to use natural resources carefully and divide them up equally C. to slow down the economic growth in developed countries might be a best policy D. raw materials will not be enough for the world economy in 2000 75. The purpose of the author in writing this passage is to _________. A. urge people to start taking action right away B. tell people about the astounding rate of population growth C. describe the problems the world will be faced with D. give an account of the relationship between population growth and industry Passage 2 Why do some new products succeed, bringing millions of dollars to innovative companies, while others fail, with great losses? The answer is not simple, and certainly we cannot say that “good” products succeed while “bad” products fail. Many products that function well and seem to meet consumer needs have fallen by the wayside. Sometimes, virtually identical products exist in the market at the same time with one emerging as profitable while the other fails. McNeal Laboratories’ Tylenol has become successful as an aspirin substitute, yet Bristol-Meyers entered the test market at about the same time with Neotrend, also a substitute for aspirin, which quickly failed. The nature of the product is a factor in its success or failure, but the important point is the consumer’s perception of the products need-satisfying capability. Any new product conception should be aimed at meeting a customer need, and the introductory promotion should seek to communicate that need satisfying quality and motivate the customer to try the product. Often, attitude change is involved, and, in the extreme, changes in life-style may be sought. Here the company walks a tightrope. A new product is more likely to be successful if it represents a truly novel way of solving a customer problem, but this very newness, if carried too far, may asked the customer to learn new behavior patterns. The customer will make the change if the perceived benefit is sufficient, but inertia is strong and consumers will often not go to the effort that is required. During the late sixties and early seventies Bristol-Meyers met with new product failures that exemplify both of these problems. In 1967 and 1968 the company entered the market with a $5 million advertising campaign for Fact toothpaste, and an $11 million campaign to promote Resolve. Both products failed quickly, not because they didn’t work or because there was no consumer need, but apparently because consumers just could see no reason to shift from an already satisfactory product to a different one that promised no new benefit. 76. The first sentence of first paragraph is a question, to which, the answer is _______. A. that the good products succeed while the bad fail B. that the “good” are not really good but the “bad” are actually bad C． that new products will succeed if they function well and fail if they don’t D. not given in the paragraph 77. What are Tylenol and Neotrend? A. They are names of two drug manufacturers. B. They are probably two brands of medicine which serve as a substitute for aspirin. C. Tylenol is a drug manufacturer whereas Neotrend is a new substitute medicine for aspirin. D. They are probably the names of two laboratories. 78. The success or failure of a product seems to be determined by a number of factors, one of which, the author emphasizes, is the consumer’s perception of the product’s _______. A. quality and price B. usefulness and durability C. need-satisfying capability D. appearance and inner packing 79. What does the author mean when he says “the company walks a tightrope” (see sentence 1, paragraph 3)? A. The company has both the chance to succeed and to fail in dealing in a new product. B. The company has to study the customer’s behavior before a new product is introduced. C. The company has to find a new way to solve customer’s problems before a new product is put on the market. D. The company has to make a great effort to overcome the customer’s intertia. 80. Bristol-Meyers failed in promoting Fact toothpaste and Resolve because _____. A. these products were too expensive as compared with their direct competitors B. both products failed to meet the customers’ need C. the customers could see no sense of a radica1 change of their habits D. the company forgot an English saying: “You cannot teach an old dog new tricks” Passage 3 The more women and minorities make their way into the ranks of management, the more they seem to want to talk about things formerly judged to be best left unsaid. The newcomers also tend to see office matters with a fresh eye, in the process sometimes coming up with critical analyses of the forces that shape everyone’s experience in the organization. Consider the novel views of Harvey Coleman of Atlanta on the subject of getting ahead. Coleman is black. He spent 11 years with IBM, half of them working in management development, and now serves as a consultant to the likes of AT&T, Coca-Cola, Prudential, and Merch. Coleman says that based on what he’s seen at big companies, he weighs the different elements that make for long-term career success as follows: performance counts a mere 10%; image, 30%; and exposure, a full 60%. Coleman concludes that excellent job performance is so common these days that while doing your work well may win you pay increases, it won’t secure you the big promotion. He finds that advancement more often depends on how many people know you and your work, and how high up they are. Ridiculous beliefs? Not to many people, especially many women and members of minority races who, like Coleman, feel that he scales have dropped from their eyes. “Women and blacks in organizations work under false beliefs,” says Kaleel Jamison, a New York-based management consultant who helps corporations deal with these issues. “They think that if you work hard, you’ll get ahead – that someone in authority will reach down and give you a promotion.” She adds, “Most women and blacks are so frightened that people think they’ve gotten ahead because of their sex or color that they play down their visibility.” Her advice to those folks: learn the ways that white males have traditionally used to find their way into the spotlight. 81. According to the passage, “things formerly judged to be best left unsaid” (Lined 3, Pare. 1) probably refers to “______”. A. criticisms that shape everyone’s experience B. the opinion which contradict the established beliefs C. the tendencies that help the newcomers to see office matters with a fresh eye D. the ideas which usually come up with new ways of management in the organization 82. To achieve success in your career, the most important factor, according to the passage, is to _____. A. let your superiors know how good you are B. project a favorable image to the people around you C. work as a consultant to your superiors D. perform well your tasks given by your superiors 83. The reason why women and blacks play down their visibility is that they ______. A. know that someone in authority will reach down and give them a promotion B. want to give people the impression that they work under false beliefs C. don’t want people to think that their promotions were due to sex or color D. believe they can get promoted by reason of their sex or color 84. The author is of the opinion that Coleman’s beliefs are ________. A. biased B．popular C．insightful D．superficial 85. The best title for this passage would be ________. A. Role of Women and Minorities in Management B. The Importance of Being Visible C. Job Performance and Advancement D. Sex and Career Success Passage 4 Geologists have been studying volcanoes for a long time. Though they have learned a great deal, they still have not discovered the causes of volcanic action, they know that the inside of earth is very hot, but they are not sure exactly what causes the great heat. Some geologists have thought that the heat is caused by the great pressure of the earth’s outer layers. Or the heat may be left from the time when the earth was formed. During the last sixty years scientists have learned about radium, thorium, and other radioactive elements. These give out the heat all the time as they change into other elements. Many scientists now believe that much of the heat inside the earth is produced by radioactive elements. Whatever the cause of the heat may be, we do know that the earth getter hotter the farther down we dig. In deep mines and oil wells the temperature rises about IF. for each 50 feet. At this rate the temperature 40 miles below the earth’s surface would be over 4000 F. This is much hotter necessary to melt rock. However, the pressure of the rock above keeps most materials from melting at their usual melting points. Geologists believe that the rock deep in the earth may be plastic, or puttylike. In other words, the rock yields slowly to pressure but is not liquid. But if some changes in the earth’s crust releases the pressure, the rock melts. Then the hot, liquid rock can move up toward the surface. When the melted rock works its way close to the earth’s crust, a volcano may be formed. The melted rock often contains steam and other gases under great pressure. If the rock above gives way, the pressure is released. Then the sudden expansion of the gases causes explosions. These blow the melted rock into pieces of different sizes and shoot them high in the air． Here they cool and harden into volcanic ash and cinders. Some of this materials falls around the hole made in the earth’s surface. The melted rock may keep on rising and pour out as lava. In this way, volcanic ash, cinders, and lava build up the cone-shaped mountains t that we call volcanoes. 86. This passage mainly deals with the ______. A. A. causes of volcanic action B. formation of volcanoes C. results of volcanic action D．work of geologists 87. The cause for the heat in interior of the earth is _____. A. radioactive elements B. the great pressure of the earth C. not mentioned in the passage D. the heat remaining from the formation of the earth 88. From the information given in the passage, most minerals would melt ____. A. A. at 400 F, 5000 feet above sea level B. at 400F, 5000 feet below sea level C．at 4000F, at sea level D. with the pressure of the rock above 89. From the passage we know that “thorium”(para.1) may be _____. A. volcano B. radioactive element C．the earth’s out layer D. heat inside the earth 90. The main idea of the last paragraph is _____. A. what causes explosions B. cause of volcanoes C. formation of volcanoes at earth’s surface D． melted rock
