Part Ⅰ Listening Comprehension (20 minutes)

Section A
Directions: In this section, you will hear 10 short conversations.
At the end of each conversation, a question will be asked about what
was said. Both the conversation and the question will be spoken only
once. After each question there will be a pause. During the pause,
you must read the four choices marked A), B), C) and D), and decide

Part Ⅱ Reading Comprehension (35 minutes)

Passage One
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage:

Professor Kumar Bhatt, founder and head of Warwick Manufacturing
Group(WMG), and Rob Meakin, a personnel director at Marconi, have
developed a partnership to train engineers and managers to BEComee-literate. The New Knowledge Partnership will include a team of 40 Marconi managers in what Professor Bhatt calls electronic engineering management or E2. A wide range of engineering and
non-engineering companies has expressed interest in these exciting programs.

Professor Bhatt believes that e-commerce is changing the business environment to a huge extent. Many chief executives do not understand the power of the new technologies and, in some cases, are actually resisting change. He says that “As long as enough industry
leaders realize its potential benefits, e-business will make
possible a second productivity revolution in Britain. This could
take the economy close to eliminating the still substantial
competitiveness gap with its main rivals. Over the last five years
in the US there has been a 30% improvement in manufacturing sector
productivity because of information technology. In Britain we can
achieve more than that and successful e-business will be worth
billions to the UK economy.”Already Britain makes more use of
computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) and management
information technology systems than other European countries, and
has a government that actively promotes e-business. But, observes
Professor Bhatt, Britain has never used technology as a growth
driver. “The thing about electronic engineering management is that
you can keep your legacy systems; you just need to link those
systems with an information engine. At the touch of a button it will
allow project managers to see the status of a project, identify
problems precisely and make virtually immediate decisions based on
information that will be much more complete than in the past.”

The E2 program is the result of an alliance by the Warwick
Manufacturing Group with America’s leading e-commerce study center,
Carnegie Mellon. The latter will be responsible for training many of
the Marconi managers in America, where the group has half its
business. In Britain, Professor Bhatt has linked up with Sun
Microsystems, Oracle and Parametric Technology, to set up a
multi-million pound E2 design and manufacturing center at the
university which will be used for training and research.

Professor Bhatt believes that e-commerce is changing business to
such an extent that WMG is likely to be renamed Warwick Electronic
Manufacturing Group. But, he warns “The move to globalize because of
e-commerce is racing ahead. Although the net allows British industry
to overtake their European peers, it also offers Asian countries to
leapfrog(相互超越) the West. For the first time it is not the privilege
of the western world because this technology is universal.”
21.
Professor Bhatt and Rob Meakin have developed a method to___.[1分]
teach electronic engineering management
train employees to be acquainted with e-commerce
train employees to be engineers and managers
teach employees about developing a partnership
22.
How does Professor Bhatt feel about many leaders in companies?[1分]
They do not understand a possible second productivity revolution in Britain. 
They are excited about change.
They are ready for e-business.
They sometimes are against the change resulted from new technologies.
23.
According to the passage, what do you know about e-business in Britain?[1分]
E-business has eliminated many competitive rivals.
E-business has done many benefits to big companies.
Many companies have joined in the E2 business program.
E-business has great potential and will make changes in the country.
24.
According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE?[1分]
Britain can be competitive to US in the area of information technology.
Britain has already taken the advantages of running engineering management.
As with many other European countries, Britain has made use of computer-aided systems.
E-commerce has offered opportunities to European countries to eliminate the competitiveness gap with all the rivals.
25.
WMG would like to change its name because ___.[1分]
Britain is going to catch up with all other European countries in the field of electronic engineering management
business has been influenced so much by e-commerce
the e-commerce has offered Asian countries the chance to overtake Britain and the rest of Europe
e-business is very popular and will become universal
Passage Two

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage:

Emotional maturity means knowing that another person cannot fill up
the hole in your heart. That is your responsibility. You need to
love and affirm yourself day-by-day, moment-by-moment. That is the
spiritual challenge of your life and everybody’s life. Without your
love for yourself, nothing works. No amount of love from your
partner is enough. The search for love from other people is like the
alcoholic’s search for happiness in a bottle. The more he drinks,
the less satisfied he feels and the more he wants to drink.

We are all addicted to falling in love. But after we’ve “fallen” a
few times and broken our emotional bones, we hopefully wise up a
bit. We know that the high of falling in love is not going to last.
We know that sooner or later we will have to get real with each
other. That is the difference between romance and partnership.

Romance is an attempt to keep the addiction going. It has a very
short half-life. Partnership is the dance of two ordinary people
learning to live together day by day. It is a very challenging
school that we enroll in. It is sometimes a lot more work than play.
And it certainly requires a lot more psychological adjustment than
years of therapy! We don’t just graduate from this school in a year
or two. It takes many years, perhaps even a lifetime, for us to
master the curriculum.

Your partners are imperfect human beings, just like you. They were
not the “wrong” partners any more than you were. Probably, they
reflected your own level of realism and emotional maturity. That’s
usually the way it works. So don’t waste your time thinking you
simply made some bad choices. The only bad choice you made was
forgetting who has the full time job loving you. I know that you
know who this is !

We keep remembering that they are not perfect, nor we are. Love is
not a game of perfection. It is a game of overwhelming imperfection.
The amazing thing is that love survives all of our mistaken attempts
to control our partners and our relationships.
26.
We can conclude from the passage that___.[1分]
we won’t forget who has the full time loving us
love is addictive
love from your partner is not enough
love lies in the maturity of emotion which is essential to apartnership or relationship
27.
Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?[1分]
To seek for true love, one must be realistic.
As long as we are emotionally mature, we can always enjoy the high of falling in love.
Love doesn’t die even if we make wrong attempts to control our partners.
The more one is loved, the less satisfied he or she feels.
28.
It can be inferred from the passage that___.[1分]
the more we try to control our partners and relationships, the better we can enjoy love
the more frequently we fall in love, the more intelligent we’ll be
the more emotionally mature a couple are, the more harmonious they will live
it’s unrealistic for you to search for true love from others
29.
By saying “They were not the ‘wrong’ partners any more than you were.”(Para 3), the author means ___.[1分]
you chose the wrong partner just as your partner did
your partner was not as good as you were
you were good partners to each other
neither of you is a good partner
30.
Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?[1分]
Some people regret their choices of love partners.
In some partnership or relationship, he or she tries to control the other.
Through psychological adjustment and therapy, one will feel satisfied with love.
Partnership is a school from which it is not easy for us to graduate.
Passage Three

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage:

What is terrorism?
In a growing number of conflicts around the world, one or both sides
attempt to label the other as “terrorist” in an effort to win 
support for their own causes. Yet as the so-called “terrorists
group” often proclaim, a clear distinction between a terrorist
action and a non-terrorist military operation is frequently
difficult to establish. Most governments argue that terrorism is
defined by violent methods to achieve political ends which are
undertaken by organizations not recognized by the world community as
legitimate representatives of a nation; furthermore, random acts of
violence, like attacks on school buses or shopping centers, are
labeled as “terrorist”. Political organization as the IRA(Irish
Republican Army) and the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization)
have been dubbed(称为) “terrorists”, by the governments of England and
Israel because of their tactics and their non-official statuses as
representatives of accurately defined nations. In the case of the
PLO, however, its election to power under Yasser Arafat has now
confused its former recognition as terrorist. Even the IRA is
earning status as an authentic opposition voice to the continued
presence of British troops on Irish soil.

All this simply highlights the problems of separating what is a
legitimate political organization with “the right” to employ
violence to achieve political ends from so-called terrorist groups.
Inseparable from this issue is historical precedence(地位先后) and the
degree of power and prestige an organization or nation has on the
world stage. For example, while most independent observes would
agree that the IRA setting off a bomb in a London subway station
confirms its notoriety, they would be less certain that Israel’s
recent bombing of a refugee camp is equally “terrorist”, despite the
fact that many more innocent people were killed and injured in the
latter incident than in the former. This raises the question, though
certainly not for the first time, whether legitimate, even
democratically elected, governments are also capable of terrorist
action. Is there always a clear moral distinction between the
behavior of normally respected nations and that of “rogue”(流氓)
organizations? What does seem clear from these reflections is not
that terrorist actions are in any way justified, but that the use of
such labels is sometimes based on a political need rather than on
superior moral or ethical grounds.
31.
What is the point the article tries to make?[1分]
Non-official status of a political organization involves terrorist suspicion.
Terrorism defies clear-cut distinction.
Terrorist element exists in every violent conflict.
Government actions are never guilty of terrorism.
32.
Which of the following could be concluded from the article?[1分]
An indisputable example of a terrorist group is PLO.
Actions to achieve political ends cannot avoid using force.
An acceptable criterion for terrorism is killing civilians.
International prestige is a justification for violence.
33.
The classification of PLO is now less clear because___.[1分]
it begins to show friendly attitude towards Israel
it stands for an independent state in the Middle East
it is no longer engaged in random performance of violence
it is the elected political representative of the Palestine
34.
It could be logically inferred from the article that____.[1分]
terrorism is not being defined on ethical criteria
defense actions committed on a foreign land is admissible
terrorism unavoidably involves immoral policies
democratic nations are innocent of terrorism
35.
The author wrote this article to ___.[1分]
show sympathy to unrecognized national forces
condemn political motives in defining terrorism
justify the ambiguity in giving terrorism labels
call for better approaches to terrorism
Passage Four

Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage:

It is curious how much one despises and condemns the vices which one
does not happen to possess. I am indeed not a severe man, nor would
I permit myself to become intolerant of those failings which I share
with others. But, having no particular temptation to be untruthful,
I find myself believing that when one comes to think of it, truth is
the major virtue and lying the most blameworthy of all the vices.I
should like, therefore, to get my mind a little clearer on the truth
question. I flatter myself, as I have said, that I am a truthful
man: a man who, when he tells a lie, is careful not to forget that
he has done so, and who takes infinite precautions to prevent his
being found out. This, in the end, is the only test by which you can
distinguish the liar from the man of truth. The latter which is
bothered by untruthfulness, is worried and anxious. The real liar,
however, is merely amused: he doesn’t mind in the least even if he
is subsequently exposed: he regards the truthful man as somewhat of
a fool.

But this surely is one of the many false statements with which the
real liar will try hard to idealize his failing. It may be inevitabe
and even just to tell lies, but it cannot seriously be argued that
such habits are intelligent. A lie is always an act of mental
cowardice, whereas intelligence is brave. And yet there was
Bismarck, and yet there was Napoleon-surely intelligent man, and
surely liars. The problem, therefore, is not so simple as it seems.

It was simple enough, in those old days, to define with approximate
accuracy when a given statement ceased to be the truth and became a
lie. The essential test was whether the maker of a false statement
knew that he was saying something false, and consciously wished his
audience to accept, and to remain under, this false impression. Life
in civilized communities is a process of adjusting the personal to
the social, of conforming the individual impression to the joint
impressions of the common people. This process of adjustment leads
inevitably and rightly to a certain unconscious deception. Absolute
truth, whether unconscious or even conscious, is thus impossible. It
is to relative truth only that we can hope to aspire.
36.
The author suggests that it is usual that___.[1分]
a person shows strong disapproval of the vices an individual doesn’t have
everyone feels contempt for the vices that most people have
most people are unlikely to condemn the vices they possess
the vices one doesn’t possess are worthy of severe condemnation
37.
The author claims that___.[1分]
he wouldn’t tolerate the vices that people have in common
he doesn’t feel particular contempt for being untruthful
one may be tempted to untruthfulness when one comes to think of it
untruthfulness is a serious fault of character which he condemns strongly
38.
The essential distinction between a truthful person and a liar lies in the fact that ___.[1分]
the former feels uneasy about the untruths he happens to tell
the latter takes great care to hinder his untruths from being
exposed
the former is willing to confess his untruthfulness when he tells
a lie
the latter is only amazed if his untruths area disclosed
39.
It is true,according to the text,real liars will___.[1分]
try hard to perfect their vices with false statements
believe it unavoidable and reasonable for everyone to tell lies
argue that their habits of telling lies are intelligent rather
than foolish
are misunderstood as being either cowardly or brave individuals
40.
In the author’s opinion,___.[1分]
bismarck and Napoleon were intelligent men of truth
in modern society, nobody can escape the risk of making a false
statement, intentionally or unintentionally
untruthful man is worried about being found out
our civilized life makes conscious lies impossible

Since I bought a computer last month, a new world has opened up
before me, a world that reaches far beyond my immediate
surrounding.
Every morning, the first thing I do after open my eyes is to access
theInternet to look at
the top new stories of the day. In the evening, I will again sit on
my computer and roam the world. The Internet brings me
lively World Cup football games and the terrorist attack on the
World Trade Center. It also enables me to communicate with my
friends viaemail. The other day I got a message from a old classmate
whom I hadn’t heard 
of for years. She got my email address just by searching the website
of my university! In addition helping us keep up old ties, it also
brings me new friends with whom I meet virtually in chat rooms. We
exchange views on topics of interest and pour our hearts out to one
another like strange friends.
So, instead of isolating us from one another, the Internet serves to
widen distance, and helps to bring friends closer.

With the popular misconception that money is everything,many immoral social phenomena have emerged. One of them is moraldecline.
Leaving the theft, robbery aside, corrupt conducts are getting morerampant. For instance, offering and taking bribes is becomingincreasingly a social malady in the privileged class. Forbusinessmen, they have a different morality which permits them towillfully produce ineffective or even dangerous products, advertisetheir products dishonestly. For some richest persons, they getconfused about their life. They are occupied with nothing all daylong and don’t know how to make themselves more satisfied, as aresult they take drugs, among many other unlawful practices, to seekfun. They have money, but they have lost their aim in life and can’tfind happiness.
Am I suggesting that we should discard all the money and go back tothe “poor days”? No! the wheel of history can’t be stopped. But ifmoral decline is the inevitable product of the economic development,we can certainly lay down some effective laws to stop thedegeneration. If so, a bright and healthy future is sure to come andstay with us!
