    Passage One
    We are all busy talking about and using the Internet, but how many of us know the history of the Internet?
    Many people are surprised when they find that the Internet was set up as recently as the 1960s. At that time, computers were large and expensive. Computer networks didn’t work well. If one computer in the network broke down, then the whole network stopped. So a new network system had to be set up. It should be good enough to be used by many different computers. If part of the network was not working, information could be sent through another part. In this way the computer network system would keep on working all the time.
    At first the Internet was only used by the government, but in the 1970s, universities, hospitals and banks began to use it, too. However, computers were still very expensive and the Internet was difficult to use. At the beginning of the 1990s, computers became cheaper and easier to use. And scientists developed software that made Internet “surfing” more convenient.
    Today it is easy to get online and it is said that millions of people use the Internet every day.

    Passage Two
    Alan Chang was a handsome young man with good manners.
    One morning he was walking along a street on his way to an appointment. He did not want to be early or late. He had forgotten to put on his watch so he went up to a man who was waiting for a taxi.
    “Excuse me, sir,” he said, very politely, “but could you tell me the time?”
    The man, who was very well-dressed and looked quite rich, said nothing. He did not even look at Alan. Alan spoke to him again. “Excuse me, sir,” he said, “but could you please tell me what time it is?”
    This time the man looked at him, but he did not speak and looked quickly away. Alan thought to himself: well, he can hear me; he must be just rude. So Alan asked again, “Why wouldn’t you tell me the time, sir?”
    The man turned towards him and said, “Put yourself in my shoes. I am standing here waiting for a taxi. You come up to me and ask me for the time. If I tell it to you, you will thank me. I will say ‘That’s all right.’ You may then say ‘It’s a beautiful day,’ to which I may reply ‘Yes, I like these sunny winter days.’ Before we know what is happening we have a friendly conversation. You are a pleasant, polite young man, so when my taxi comes, I offer you a ride. You accept. We talk. I like you. You like me. I invite you to my home. You meet my daughter. She is a very pretty girl. You are a good-looking man. You like each other. Soon you fall in love. You want to marry. Now do you understand my problem?”
    Alan shook his head. “No, sir, I’m sorry, I don’t. Everything you have said seems very natural to me.”
    “Exactly,” the man said, “and I do not want my daughter to marry a man who is too poor to buy a watch. Good morning to you.” And with these words he hurried away.
    21. Why did Alan ask the man what time it was?    C

    Passage Three
    What are the beauties of Hawaii? Let’s start with four.
    The beach, famous for its water temperature, air temperature and waves, is the first beauty. There are hundreds of miles of beaches on the twenty islands of Hawaii. They are thought to be among the finest beaches in the world.
    Then, what do you think would be the second beautiful thing? It is volcanoes (火山), of course. These volcanoes are not just a part of the islands; they made the islands in the first place. Because of them the islands are still growing.
    What would be the third thing of beauty that the first visitor to Hawaii would notice? It probably wouldn’t be just one thing, but many things: all the wonderful fruits and flowers of the islands. Sugar cane, bananas and pineapples are Hawaii’s biggest exports. Sugar cane has been growing in Hawaii for a thousand years. As for pineapples, the islands produce more than any other places in the world, which has made Dole Company the biggest fruit-packing company in the world.
    The fourth and most beautiful thing about Hawaii is the people who live there. The Hawaiians never rush, and perhaps this is because they care more for human life than they care for the machine. There is an old Hawaiian law that a man can go to sleep in the middle of the road if he wants to. What makes the people of Hawaii so beautiful is their feeling about people. There are 64 different combinations of races on the islands, and they all live in peace. They believe “Above all nations is humanity.” That is the most beautiful thing of all.
    26. According to the passage, Hawaii is made up of  B__.
       A. one island    B. twenty islands   C. sixty-four islands   D. hundreds of islands
    27. Why are the volcanoes so special to the islands?   B  
       A. They are not a part of the islands.                 B. They actually made the islands.
       C. They are the first in the world.                      D. They are growing.
    28. What has made Dole Company the biggest fruit-packing company in the world?   D 
       A. Sugar.                        B. Sugar cane.             C. Bananas.                    D. Pineapples.
    29. The people in Hawaii are the most beautiful thing because _ D_.
       A. they had a peaceful history              B. they can sleep in the middle of the road
       C. there are 64 different races on the islands   D. they care more for people than anything else
    30. According to the passage, “above all nations is humanity” might mean __C  .
       A. not all nations have humanity                       B. humanity is as important as a nation
       C. humanity has no national boundaries       D. all human beings should live in peace
    Passage Four
    There is a measurable relation between how much a person learns and his attitude toward the subject to be learned. When faced with a difficult learning task, one path to success is to concentrate on the positive aspects of the subject matter. If a student has a boring teacher, one solution is to look for the positive aspects of completing the course, regardless of how boring the teacher happens to be. To accomplish this might require a private tutor or some independent reading, but with the right attitude, success is possible.
    Over-achievers – students who do better than their test scores show – usually have a positive interest toward learning. They may learn some things more slowly, and they may make more efforts, but, to compensate (補償), they are often better at applying what they have learned. As long as they do not have emotional problems, they are successful.
    Under-achievers – those who function below their ability shown by test scored – often tend to allow a few negative factors to affect them. Because of their negative attitudes, they sometimes become unfairly critical of teachers. They allow themselves to get bored when it is not necessary. In short, their attitudes often cause them to learn less than over-achievers.
    If you learn to replace a negative attitude toward learning with something more positive, you are on the road to achieving almost any goal you desire. For example, if you realize a personal computer with a word processor would improve your performance, but have an attitude that keeps telling you that a computer is difficult to operate, you tend to make all kinds of excuses. In short, you resist making full use of a terrific tool, simply because your negative attitude prevents you from learning.
    31. What does the author think a student should do if he has a boring teacher?     D  
       A. Look for a new course.                                                                        B. Be critical of the teacher.
       C. Complete the course with a good score.       D. Have a right attitude toward the teacher.
    32. The writer thinks that over-achievers and under-achievers mainly differ in __C.
       A. their test scores                                             B. their judgment of others
       C. their attitudes toward learning                  D. their skills in using computers
    33. The underlined phrase function below their ability shown by test scores means the under-achievers B_.
       A. often get low scores in tests
       B. do worse in actual learning than in tests
       C. usually do better in tests than the over-achievers
       D. are always slow in learning and have to make more efforts
    34. The example of the personal computer shows that __B.
       A. finding excuses helps in learning                  B. to react negatively can be harmful
       C. hard-working is the key to success               D. making use of the computer is important
    35. What is the main idea of the passage?    A  
       A. Attitudes play an important role in learning.
       B. Students should learn how to use personal computers.
       C. Teachers are not so important in the learning process.
       D. There are many differences between over-and under-achievers.
