III. 阅读理解 从每小题列出的四个备选项中，选出一个最佳选项。
Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage.
In a time of low academic achievement by children in the United States, many Americans are turning to Japan, a country of high academic achievement and economic success, for possible answers. However, the answers provided by Japanese preschools are not the ones Americans expected to find. In most Japanese preschools, surprisingly little emphasis is put on academic instruction. In one investigation, 300 Japanese and 210 Americans preschools teachers, child development specialists, and parents were asked about various aspects of early childhood education. Only 2 percent of the Japanese respondents（答问卷者）listed “to give children a good start academically” as one of their top three reasons for a society to have preschools. In contrast, over half the Americans respondents chose this as one of their top three choices. To prepare children for successful careers in first grade and beyond, Japanese schools do not teach reading, writhing, and mathematics, but rather skills such as persistence, concentration, and the ability to function as a member of a group. The vast majority of young Japanese children are taught to read at home by their parents.
In recent comparison of Japanese and American preschool education, 91 percent of Japanese 4
respondents chose providing children with a group experience as one of their top three reasons for a society to have preschools. Sixty-two percent of the more individually oriented（强调个体发展的） Americans listed group experience as one of their top three reasons. An emphasis on school education.
Like in America, there is diversity in Japanese early childhood education. Some Japanese kindergartens have specific aims, such as early musical training or potential development. In large cities, some kindergartens are attached to universities that have elementary and secondary schools. Some Japanese parents believe that if their young children attend a university-based program, it will increase the children’s chances of eventually being admitted to top-rated schools and universities. Several more progressive programs have introduced free play as a way out for the heavy intellectualizing in some Japanese kindergartens.
1.We learnt from the first paragraph that many Americans believe ___.
A Japanese parents are more involved in preschools education than American parents
B Japan’s economic success is a result of its scientific achievements
C Japanese preschools education emphasizes academic instruction

C tapping children’s potential
D shaping children’s character
4. Free play has been introduced in some Japanese kindergartens in order to ___.

Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage.
Humanity uses a little less than half the water available worldwide. Yet occurrences of shortages and droughts are causing famine and distress in some areas, and industrial and 5
agricultural by-products are polluting water supplies. Since the world’s population is expected to double in the next 50 years, many experts think we are on the edge of a widespread water crisis. But that doesn’t have to be the outcome.
Water shortages do not have to trouble the world—if we start valuing water more than we have in the past. Just as we began to appreciate petroleum more after the 1970s oil crises, today we must start looking at water from a fresh economic perspective. We can no longer afford to consider water a virtually free resource of which we can use as much as we like in any way we want.
Instead, for all uses except the domestic demand of the poor, governments should price water to reflect its actual value. This means charging a fee for the water itself as well as for the supply costs. Governments should also protect this resource by providing water in more economically and environmentally sound ways. For example, often the cheapest way to provide irrigation water in the dry tropics is through small-scale projects, such as gathering rainfall in depressions (凹地) and pumping it to nearby cropland. No matter what steps governments take to provide water more efficiently, they must change their institutional and legal approaches to water use. Rather than spread control among hundreds or even thousands of local, regional, and national agencies that watch various aspects of water use, countries should set up central authorities to coordinate water policy.
6. What is the real cause of the potential water crisis?
A. Only half of the world’s water can be used.
B. The world population is increasing faster and faster.
C. Half of the world’s water resources have been seriously polluted.
D. Humanity has not placed efficient value on water resources.
7. As indicated in the passage, the water problem________ .
A. is already serious in certain parts of the world.
B. Has been exaggerated by some experts in the field
C. Poses a challenge to the technology of building reservoirs
D. Is underestimated by government organizations at different levels
8. According to the author, the water price should ________ .
A. be reduced to the minimum
B. stimulate domestic demand
C. correspond to its real value
D. take into account the occurrences of droughts
9. The author says that in some hot and dry areas it is advisable to________ . .
A. build big lakes to store water
B. construct big pumping stations
C. build small and cheap irrigation systems
D. channel water from nearby rivers to cropland
10. In order to raise the efficiency of the water supply, measures should be taken to________ .
A. guarantee full protection of the environment
B. centralize the management of water resources
C. increase the sense of responsibility of agencies at all levels
D. encourage local and regional of water resources
Questions 11 to 15 are based on the following passage.
Exercise is one of the few factors with a positive role in long-term maintenance of body weight. Unfortunately, that message has not gotten through to the average American, who would rather try switching to “light” beer and low-calorie bread than increase physical exertion. The Centers for Disease Control, for example, found that fewer than one-fourth of overweight adults who were trying to shed pounds said they were combining exercise with their diet.
In rejecting exercise, some people may be discouraged too much by caloric-expenditure charts; for example, one would have to briskly walk three miles just to work off 275 calories in one delicious Danish pastry（小甜饼）. Even exercise professionals concede half a point here. “Exercise by itself is a very tough way to lose weight,” says York Onnen, program director of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.
Still, exercise’s supporting role in weight reduction is vital. A study at the Boston University Medical Center of overweight police officers and other public employees confirmed that those who dieted without exercise regained almost all their old weight, while those who worked exercise into their daily routine maintained their new weight.
If you have been sedentary（极少活动的）and decide to start walking one mile a day, the added exercise could burn an extra 100 calories daily. In a year’s time, assuming no increase in food intake, you could lose ten pounds. By increasing the distance of your walks gradually and making other dietary adjustments, you may lose even more weight.
11.What is said about the average American in the passage?
A. They tend to exaggerate the healthful effect of “light” beer.
B. They usually ignore the effect of exercise on losing weight.
C. They prefer “light” beer and low-calorie bread to other drinks and food.
D. They know the factors that play a positive role in keeping down body weight.
12.Some people dislike exercise because they ___.
A. think it is physically exhausting
B. find it hard to exercise while on a diet
C. don’t think it possible to walk 3 miles every day
D. find consulting caloric-expenditure charts troublesome
13. “Even exercise professionals concede half a point here” (Line 3, Para. 2) means “They ___”.
A. agree that the calories in a small piece of pastry can be difficult to work off by exercise 7
B.partially believe diet plays a supporting role in weight reduction
C. are not fully convinced that dieting can help maintain one’s new weight
D. are not sufficiently informed of the positive role of exercise in losing weight
14. What was confirmed by the Boston University Medical Center’s study?
A. Controlling one’s calorie intake is more important than doing exercise.
B. Even occasional exercise can help reduce weight.
C. Weight reduction is impossible without exercise.
D. One could lose ten pounds in a year’s time if there’s no increase in food intake.
15. What is the author’s purpose in writing this article?
A. justify the study of the Boston University Medical Center
B. stress the importance of maintaining proper weight
C. support the statement made by York Onnen
D. show the most effective way to lose weight
Questions 16 to 20 are based on the following passage.
We can see how the product life cycle works by looking at the introduction of instant coffee. When it was introduced, most people did not like it as well as “regular” coffee and it took several years to gain general acceptance (introduction stage). At one point, though, Instant coffee grew rapidly in popularity and many brands were introduced (stage of rapid growth). After a while people became attached to one brand and sales leveled off (stage of maturity). Sales went into a slight decline （衰退）when freeze-dried coffees were introduced (stage of decline).
The importance of the product life cycle to marketers is this: Different stages in the product life cycle call for different strategies. The goal is to extend product life so that sales and profits do not decline. One strategy is called market modification. It means that marketing managers look for new users and market sections. Did you know, for example, that the backpacks that so many students carry today were originally designed for the military? Market modification also means searching for increased usage among present customers or going for a different market, such as senior citizens. A marketer may re-position the product to appeal to new market sections.
Another product extension strategy is called product modification. It involves changing product quality, features, or style to attract new users or more usage from present users. American auto manufacturers are using quality improvement as one way to recapture world markets. Note, also, how auto manufacturers once changed styles dramatically from year to year to keep demand from falling.
16. According to the passage, when people grow fond of one particular brand of a product, its sales will ___ .
A. decrease gradually C. improve enormously
B. become unstable D. remain at the same level
17. The first paragraph tells us that a new product is ___ .
A. usually introduced to satisfy different tastes
B. often more expensive than old ones
C often inferior to old ones at first
D. not easily accepted by the public
18. Marketers need to know which of the four stages a product is in so as to ___ .
A. work out marketing policies C. promote its production
B. increase its popularity D. speed up its life cycle
19. The author mentions the example of “backpacks”(Line 4, Para.2 ) to show the importance of ___ .
A. increasing usage among students C. pleasing the young as well as the old
B. exploring new market sections D.serving both military and civil needs
20. In order to recover their share of the world market, U.S. auto makers are ___.
A. improving product quality C. re-positioning their product in the market

Part A: Translate the following into Chinese
1. There is a great difference between the amounts of energy consumed in developed and developing countries. The average energy consumed per head of population in the United States, the world's number one energy user, is over 100 times that of the world's most underdeveloped countries. Other industrialized countries use between 30 and 50 times as much energy per head of 9
population as the most underdeveloped countries.
Obviously, it is the amount of energy used by industrialized countries that has caused the present shortage of fossil fuels. These countries' could make certain savings right away. Private motor cars are wasteful compared with well-organized public transport. The equivalent of millions of tons of coal is wasted every year because lights are needlessly left burning in offices, factories, ships and homes.
2. We live in a world with limited natural resources. Human resources, however, can be greatly increased. The brain is humanity's greatest resource. Its potential is enormous. Even the smartest person uses only a small part of her or his brain.
Physical health is an important resource. Mental health, or a feeling of well-being can make any task seem easy to do. When one has the good fortune to be healthy in body and mind, it seems that any goal can be reached. Many physically disabled people have reached their goals because they used their abilities and overcame their disabilities. Mental abilities, skills, and personal qualities can help you reach your goals.
