Part Ⅲ Reading Comprehension ( 40分 每题2分 )
Directions: There are 4 passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some questions or incomplete statements. For each of them there are 4 choices marked A, B, C and D. You should decide on the best choice, and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.
I'm a Chinese student studying in Canada. I have been a boarder(寄宿生) with the Carsons for more than a year and a half.
The Carsons live in their own house, which has four bedrooms including the one in the basement(底层) which I live in. Judy does all the work in the house and Andrew is responsible for the work in the garden. When they go out in they evening, they often ask me to look after their children.
Judy's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Morris, lived in another city. Judy was their only child and naturally they doted on(溺爱) Judy's children. They often sent the children presents.
Last April Mr. Morris died. Now that Mrs. Morris was quite alone, I expected that Judy would want her to come and live with them. One day, Margaret told me grandma was coming to live with them and her daddy and mummy would want my room back. The news didn't surprise me and the next day I went to Judy and asked her about it. I said I couldn't think of living in their basement room any longer if it was needed for Mrs. Morris. Judy seemed surprised at first. Then she told me there was no deed for me to move, for they hadn't yet come to any decision about her mother coming to live with them. "Naturally I'm worried about my mother. She has been in poor health." She smiled sadly and added. "To be honest, Andrew and my mother have never got on well. We'll wait a bit and see what happens. Perhaps Moter will be all right living herself, of perhaps they will both change their minds."
That was six months ago. During this time I've heard that Mrs. Morris has had two illnesses and that her health has got worse. A nursing home was mentioned once but Mrs. Morris refused to go there. So up to now she's still living alone and I'm still living in the basement room.
61. What is the relationship between the speaker and the Carsons?
A. He is a brother of Andrew Carson.
B. He is a close friend of the Carsons.
C. He is a student of Judy Carson.
D. He is a student who pays to live and have meals at the Carsons' house.
62. Why did the speaker expect Mrs. Morris to come to live with her daughter?
A. Because Mr. Morris was dead.
B. Because Mrs. Morris suffered from illness.
C. Because Mrs. Morris lived all by herself.
D. Because of all the reasons mentioned in A, B and C.
63. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage?
A. Mrs. Morris was coming to live with the Carsons, so they asked the speaker to move.
B. Judy had no brothers or sisters to look after her mother.
C. Mrs. Morris loved her grandchildren very much.
D. The Carsons once suggested that Mrs. Morris go to live in a nursing home.
64. Why didn't Mrs. Morris come to live with her daughter's family?
A. Because the speaker lived in the basement room and there was no other room for her to live in.
B. Because she did not have a good relationship with her son-in-law.
C. Because she was in rather poor health and could not come.
D. Because she did not want to leave her own house.
65. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?

Overhead bridges are found in many parts of Beijing, especially in places where traffic is very heavy and crossing the road is dangerous.
The purpose of these bridges is to enable pedestrians (行人) to cross roads safely. Overhead bridges are used to very much the same way as zebra crossings. They are more efficient (效率高的) although less convenient because people have to climb up a long flight of steps. This is inconvenient especially to older people. When pedestrains use an overhead bridge, they do not hold up traffic. However, when they cross a busy road using a zebra crossing, traffic is held up. This is why the government has built many overhead bridges to help pedestrians and to keep traffic moving at the same time.
The government of Beijing has spent a large amount of money on building these bridges. For their own safety, pedestrians should be encouraged to use them instead of risking (冒…危险) their lives by dashing across the road. Old people , however , may find it a little difficult climbing up and down the steps, but it is still much safer than walking across the road with all the danger of moving traffic.
Overhead bridges serve a very useful purpose. Pedestrians, both old and young, should make it a habit to use them. This will prevent unnecessary accidents and loss of life.
66. What is the advantage of overhead bridges mentioned in this passage?
A. Taller trucks can pass under them.
B. Pedestrians can climb up and have a view of the city.
C. They are safer for pedestrians and can keep traffic moving at the same time.
D. They are easier and more convenient for the pedestrians.
67. Why were overhead bridges built in Beijing?
A. Because they prevent traffic from being held up.
B. Because they provide an easy way for the drivers to cross the road.
C. Because they save money for the government.
D. Because they save time for the pedestrians.
68. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?
A. Overhead bridges are found in every part of Beijing.
B. Overhead bridges are only found in the centre of Beijing.
C. Overhead bridges are found in many parts of big cities in China.
D. Overhead bridges are found in places where traffic is heavy.
69. The underlined words a zebra crossing probably mean ________.
A. a safe place across a road for pedestrians to walk across the road
B. a wild animal from Africa that looks like a horse with broad dark brown and white stripes on its body
C. a safe place across a road for zebras to walk across the road
D. a safe place across a road for children to play a game
70. What is the writer’s attitude towards overhead bridges?
A. It is inconvenient to older people to walk across the road.
B. It is much safer for pedestrians though climbing up and down the steps may be a little difficult,
C. An overhead bridge is more beautiful than a zebra crossing.
D. To build overhead bridges is the business of the government.
There was a time when, if a lady got into a crowded bus or train, a gentleman would immediately stand up and offer his seat. But now, things are different. Today a gentleman will probably look out of the window or if he feels a bit shy, hide behind his newspaper. Either way, the lady will have to stand until someone else gets off.
You can't entirely blame men for this change in manners, though. Gone are the days when women could be referred to as weakers without causing trouble. A whole generation of women has grown up demanding equality with men, not just equality in jobs or education, but in social life. Hold a door open for some women and you are likely to get an angry lecture on treating women as weakers unable to open doors for themselves. Take a girl out for meal and she'll probably insist on paying her share of the bill. On second thoughts, that is perhaps not a bad idea.
It's no wonder then, that men have given up some ways of politeness and consideration which they used to show towards women. On the other hand, the man's active politeness is perhaps slowly being replaced by true consideration for the needs and feelings of women, so that men can see women as equal human beings, rather than as weakers or something that can be used to please men.
71. Today, when a lady gets on a crowed bus or train, a gentleman would probaby . .
A. stand up and offer her his seat B. read his newspaper
C. look out of the window D. not stand up and offer her his seat
72. What men do towards women on a crowded bus or train today is . .
A. really bad B. strange enough
C. not entirely wrong D. entirely wrong
73. The new generation of women wants to be . .
A. treated not as the weaker sex B. Terated as the weaker sex
C. cared for on buses and trains D. better treated than before
74. According to the passage, which of the following is not correct?
A. Some women may get angry if you open the door for them.
B. Girls don’t want you to pay for meal at all
C. Some women may criticize you if you show too much politeness to them
D. A girl may be unangry if you insist on paying her share of the bill.
75. From the passage, we know that . .
A. women need true consideration of their needs and feelings
B. men have given up some politeness they used to show to women
C. women often get angry of you’re polite to them
D.women should stand in the bus or train
“ Family” is of course an elastic word. But when British people say that their society is based on family life, they are thinking of “family” in its narrow, peculiarly European sense of mother, father and children living together alone in their own house as an economic and social unit. Thus, every British marriage indicates the beginning of a new and independent family—hence the tremendous importance of marriage in British life.
For both the man and the woman, marriage means leaving one´s parents and starting one´s own life. The man´s first duty will then be to his wife, and the wife´s to her husband. He will be entirely responsible for her financial support, and she for the running of the new home. Their children will be their common responsibility and theirs alone. Neither the wife´s parents nor the husband´s, nor their brothers or sisters, aunts or uncles, have any right to interfere with them—they are their own masters.
Readers of novels like Jane Austen´s Pride and Prejudice will know that in former times marriage among wealthy families were arranged by the girl´s parents, that is, it was the parents´ duty to find a suitable husband for their daughter, preferably a rich one, and by skillful encouragement to lead him eventually to ask their permission to marry her. Until that time, the girl was protected and maintained in the parents´ home, and the financial relief of getting rid of her could be seen in their giving the newly married pair a sum of money called a dowry. It is very different today. Most girls of today get a job when they leave school and become financially independent before their marriage. This has had two results. A girl chooses her own husband, and she gets no dowry.
76. What does the author mean by “Family is of course an elastic word”?
A.Different families have different ways of life.
B. Different definitions could be given to the word.
C. Different nations have different families.
D.Different times produce different families.
77. For an English family, the husband´s duty is ____.
A. supporting the family while the wife is financial
B. defending the family while the wife is running the home
C. financial while the wife is running the home
D. independent while the wife is dependent
78. Everything is decided in a family ____.
A.by the couple B. with the help of their parents
C. by brothers and sisters D. with the help of aunts and uncles
79. What is true concerning the book Pride and Prejudice?
A. It is the best book on marriage.
B. It is a handbook of marriage.
C. It gives quite some idea of English social life in the past.
D. It provides a lot of information of formertime wealthy families.
80.With regard to marriage in Britain, present-day girls differ from former time girls in ____.
A. the right marry B. more parental support
C. choosing husbands D. social position
