Part 1 Reading Comprehension (Multiple Choice) (Each item: 3)

Directions: Read the following passages carefully and choose the best answer from the four choices marked A, B, C and D.

Questions 1 to 5 are based on the same passage or dialog.

The cost of helping someone with AIDS drugs is high. Pills cost a lot of money. In Africa, AIDS drugs may cost more than a person makes in one year. At the same time, some American hospitals throw away a lot of pills. One man, named Lee Wildes, didn't think this was fair, so he decided to do something about it.

Wildes lives in a small apartment in San Francisco. Every month, he sends AIDS drugs, which would've been thrown away, to Africa. His act of kindness has not been noticed much in his home country. In Africa though, he is well known. Many people in Africa send him e-mails, asking him for the medicine they need.

Lee was a nurse. He knows that drugs worth of millions of dollars are thrown away. Five years ago he learned he was sick with HIV. Following this discovery, he took a vacation to Africa and saw many people there with AIDS. His visit caused him to begin sending drugs to Africa.

Lee talks with doctors in Africa by mail, e-mail and telephone. With their help, he has gotten the names and addresses for a hundred people in six African countries. He fills the pill orders and he records what pills he sends to them. He even returns to Africa, once a year, to see the people he's helping.

Giving left over drugs away is against the law, as is giving out drugs without a license. However, it is not likely he'll be taken to court for his kindly efforts. People who have discovered his actions have not caused problems for him. They know that 25 million Africans are sick with AIDS, and they don't want to prevent him from helping.

A. They don't want to take something that was thrown away.

B. They don't think that the drugs work.

D. They don't have enough money.

B. Take a trip to Africa.

C. Throw away AIDS drugs.

D. Send e-mails to Africans.

3. What did Wildes learn five years ago?

5. What do people think of Wildes' actions?

Questions 6 to 10 are based on the same passage or dialog.

I don't have a strong village feeling. There is a little pub and that is where most people go, although I tend to avoid it. The village always wants to know what you are doing and if you don't have too much contact with it in the pub, then they don't learn too much. I just keep them guessing. The new people want a great community center. People who have just arrived in a village always want to do something in it or to it. What exactly they are going to have in this center I don't know. They keep talking about "amenities" (公共设施). I suppose they mean a car-park and a big smart room. The young village people don't want this. When their work is over they want to go off in their cars to the bright lights of Ipswich. The new people are often just kidding themselves that they are real village people. They don't just want to be accepted; they really want to take over the traditions. This is why they have come to live in a village. They want to do things "for the village" and it is all very exhausting if you happen to be an "old villager" and you just want to be left alone. What I cannot understand is why a person who has got the wit (才智) to make enough money to come and live comfortably in the country, and have a centrally-heated house and a car, should want to put on entertainment in a hut (小屋). These people are just playing at village life—kidding themselves that they are genuine country folk. They wear us out. When their work is done they want to play in the village and when our work is done we want to play outside it. I suppose that sums it up.

6. We can learn from this passage that the writer ______.

A. doesn't learn about what village people are doing

B. tells the other village people about the pub

C. never tells people anything about himself

D. doesn't often go to the village pub

7. According to the passage, the young village people _______.

A. want their pleasure outside the village

B. don't like going to the community center

8. In the writer's opinion, the new people _______.

A. want to get rid of the old ways of the village

B. want to be left alone by people in the village

C. know that they aren't accepted by people in the village

D. do things that change the village from how it is

9. The old village people _______.

A. don't want to get rid of their old things for new things

B. are not ready to accept the new people in their village

C. want a new community center with a place to park

Questions 11 to 15 are based on the same passage or dialog.

Almost more than any other country in the world, Britain must seriously face the problem of building upwards, that is to say, of providing accommodations to a considerable proportion of its population in high blocks of flats. It is said that the Englishman objects to this type of existence, but if the case is such, he does in fact differ from the residents of most countries of the world today. In the past our own blocks of flats have been associated with the lower income groups and they have lacked the obvious provisions (供应), such as central heating, constant hot water supply, electrically operated lifts from top to bottom, and so on, as well as such details as easy facilities (设施) for getting rid of dust and rubbish and storage places for baby carriages on the ground floor, play grounds for children on the top of the buildings, and drying grounds for washing. It is likely that the argument regarding flats versus (与……相

对) individual houses will continue to rage on for a long time as far as Britain is concerned. And it is unfortunate that there should be hot feeling on both sides whenever this subject is raised. Those who oppose the building of flats base their case primarily on the assumption that everyone prefers an individual home and garden and on the high cost per unit of accommodation. The latter ignores the higher cost of providing full services to a scattered community and the cost in both money and time of the journey to work from the suburban residences.

11. What is the problem that Britain must face?

A. Building blocks of homes.

B. Placing people in flats.

C. Being different from other countries.

D. Helping lower income groups.

12. Which of the following is one of the features of today's flats?

A. Facilities for getting rid of garbage.

B. Carriages for babies.

C. Water supply for drinking.

D. Playgrounds for children.

13. Which of the following is likely to continue for a long time according to the passage?

A. Flats will not have the obvious provisions.

B. Houses will be preferred by most people.

C. People will not agree on flats and individual houses.

D. Britain will be an unfortunate place to live.

14. Why do people oppose the building of flats?

A. They think flats offer no provisions.


B. They think flats are unfortunate.

C. They think everyone prefers houses.

D. They think everyone agrees with them.

15. What do people ignore when they oppose flats?

A. Flats have many provisions now.

B. Flats are suitable for individual families.

C. Flats offer plenty of space for living.

D. Flats save people money and time.
