unfinished statements. For each of them there are 4 choices marked A, B, C and D. choose the best one and mark your answer on the ANSWER SHEET. Passage One Nearly a quarter-century after a German boy tossed a message in a bottle off a ship in the Baltic Sea, he’s received an answer. A 13-year-old Russian, Daniil Korotkikh, was walking with his parents on a beach when he saw something glittering lying in the sand. “I saw that bottle and it looked interesting,” Korotkikh told the Associated Press on Tuesday. “It looked like a German beer bottle with a ceramic(陶瓷的) plug, and there was a message inside." His father, who knows a little German, translated the letter. It said: “My name is Frank, and I am five years old. My dad and I are traveling on a ship to Denmark. If you find this letter, please write back to me, and I will write back to you.” The letter, dated 1987, included an address in the town of Coesfeld. The boy in the letter, Frank Uesbeck, is now 29. His parents still live at the letter’s address. “At first I didn’t believe it,” Uesbeck told the AP about getting the response from Korotkikh. In fact, he barely remembered the trip at all; his father actually wrote the letter. The Russian boy said he does not believe that the boy actually spent 24 years in the sea: “It would not have survived in the water all that time,” he said. He believed it had been hidden under the sand where he found it. In the web chat earlier this month, Uesbek gave Korotkikh his new address to write to and promised to write back when he receives his letter. “He’ll definitely get another letter from me,” the 29-year-old said. Uesbeck was especially thrilled that he was able to have a positive impact on a life of a young person far away from Germany. 16. The message in the bottle was found _______ years later. A. 25 B. 24 C. 29 D. 20 17. The letter in the bottle was written in ________. A. Russian B. English C. French D. German 18. The letter in the bottle was actually written by _________. A. Frank B. Korotkikh C. Frank’s father D. Korotkikh’s father 19. Which of the following statements is Not true?
A. Daniil Korotkikh believed the bottle must have stayed in the sea all the time before he got it. B. Frank, the German man gave the Russian boy his new address. C. Frank and Korotkikh have met each other through the web chat D. It is likely that Frank and Korotkikh will arrange a meeting in person. 20. That the letter is found and answered so many years later is a(n) _______ to all the people. A. surprise B. tragedy C. glory D. honour Passage Two Today, many people are starving to death. There is a shortage of food and the available food is too expensive for hungry people to buy. Therefore, they go without food, or each day have only one or two small meals lacking the necessary vitamins to maintain good health. Recently, a man who wanted to understand the conditions such people conducted an experiment. He only ate one meal a day for a month but continued to work as he normally did. During the first five days he was hungry at his regular meal times, but after he had drunk a glass of water his hunger went away. In the evening, when he ate his one meal, he ate quickly and consumed a large amount. During the next five days, although he was not hungry during the day, he quickly noticed every food stall. And the smell of food caught his attention. During the third and fourth weeks, he had hunger pains and lack physical strength. He looked forward to his one meal and ate it slowly, enjoying every bite. Without it, he knew he would have hardly enough energy to work. This experience changed his attitude about some things. Having a cup of tea was not just a pastime, it also gave him strength. He more frequently noticed overweight people and people who threw away leftover food. He realized the importance of food for the very hungry person. He could no longer easily pass by a hungry beggar on the street. But most important, he could now sympathize in a small way with the starving people of the world. 21. According to the first paragraph, today the problem with many people is that _________. A. they don’t eat food B. they are too poor to buy food C. the food they eat lacks vitamins D. not enough food is provided to them 22. The man ate only one meal a day because ________. A. there was a serious shortage of food B. it was an effective way of losing weight C. he wanted to know how hungry people could be D. he could not afford to have three meals a day 23. At first, when he was hungry he found that a glass of water ______.
A. got rid of his thirst B. could remove his hunger C. hardly produced any effect D. only made him feel hungrier 24. The experiment made the man realize that ________. A. most people are just eating for fun B. overweight people are wasting food C. food has a different meaning for people D. leftover food shouldn’t be thrown away. 25. After the experiment was over, the man might have felt that ________. A. hunger is less painful once you get used to it B. a man can survive for years on only one meal a day C. you enjoy your food more if you go hungry for a while D. something should be done for the hungry people of the world Passage 3 A college education is not just preparation for a career, however. In addition to taking courses in their major field of study, students enroll in elective(选修的) courses. They may take classes that help them understand more about people, nature, government, or the arts. Well-rounded people are likely to be better citizens, better parents and more interesting and interested individuals. Although two-thirds of American high school graduates no longer dominate the college campuses. Adults of all ages return to the classroom, either for new vocational skills or for personal growth. In 1966, for example, almost 20% of American college students were over age 35. Some 500,000 college students are over 50. American faith in the value of education is exemplified by the rising number of Americans who have at least a bachelor’s degree. Almost one-quarter of Americans over age 25 are college graduates. College attendance is not reserved for the wealthy and the academically talented. It is available to anyone who wants to go. Right now about 15 million students are taking advantage of the opportunity. For those not academically prepared to handle college-level work, about 80% of undergraduate schools offer remedial (sometimes called developmental) classes in reading, writing and math. The U.S has about 3,700 institutions of higher learning. About 1,600 of these are 2-year schools. More than 2000 are 4-year schools, many of which also have graduate programs. With so many colleges to choose from, how do prospective students find the right one for their needs? Information about schools is easy to obtain. Students can write for printed information and applications. Some schools even mail out video. Students can also use computer programs that allow them to specify particular interests and print out a list os schools that fit their description. Most institutions of higher learning also have web sites. Many schools send college representatives to high schools and two-year colleges to recruit students. Finally, many students visit colleges, take tours of campuses, and talk to counselors. 26. The word “well-rounded” in Paragraph 1 means _________.
A. well developed in a range of aspects B. rounded in shape or well developed C. well planned and balanced D. full, varied, and satisfying 27. According to the text, recent high school graduates _________ in American colleges. A. are a majority B. are a minority C. form two-thirds of the students D. are no more than adult students 28. American colleges are for ________. A. the intelligent B. anyone who has a need C. the academically prepared D. the rich who can afford their education 29. How many methods can one use to obtain information about schools? A. Three B. Four C. Five D. Six 30. According to the passage, the most basic reason for th high rate of college enrollment is ________. A. social pressure B. easy access to colleges C. people’s faith in education D. the large number of colleges Passage Four A man from New York is suing four big fast-food companies. Caesar Barber is going to court because he says that high-fat foods at McDonald’s Burger King, Wendy’s, and KFC Corporation destroyed his health. Barber says that he ate at these resturants four or five times a week for many years. He claims that this diet made him very overweight. According to Mr. Barber, obesity(肥胖 症) gave him diabetes (糖尿病)， high blood pressure, and two heart attacks. When a reporter asked him why he ate there so often, he said, “I was single, it was quick, and I’m not a very good cook.” Barber’s lawyer, Samuel Hirsch, says that the suit has two different purposes. The first is to make fast-food resturants offer healthier foods in smaller amounts. The suit also asks that fast-foods have warning labels similar to labels on cigarettes. Mr. Hirsch says that these labels are necessary because the effects of fast foods are similar to the effecs of cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs such as heroin. Two others may soon join Barber’s suit. One is Frances Winn, a 57-year-old retired nurse.
Ms. Winn says that she has eaten at fast-food resturants at least twice a week since 1975. She says that this habit has caused several health problems, including high blood pressure. Isreal Bradley, 59, said eating a pound of French fries every week gave him high blood pressure and diabetes. Officials of the fast-food industry attacked the legal action. National Resturant Association representative Katharine Kim called it ridiculous. KFC spokeswoman Amy Sherwood claimed KFC offers several kinds of foods for people who want to eat healthier. Legal expert Walter Olson agreed that the suit had little chance of success. He said that people were free to make different choices. Whether or not the suit is successful, there is no doubt that Americans have a weight problem. Medical experts say that obesity will soon be America’s number one killer. They have encouraged fast-food campanies to offer healthier foods. 31. What does the word “suing” in the first sentence mean? A. Attacking B. Mentioning C. Complaining about D. Taking a legal action against 32. Caesar Barber’s problem is that _______. A. he does not have a family B. he suffers diseases caused by overweight C. he has no time for cooking D. he lives near fast food restaurants 33.
