Part III. Reading Comprehension (45 points)
Section One: There are two passages in this part. Each passage is followed by a number of questions for comprehension. For each question there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.
How men first learned to invent words is unknown. All we really know is that men, unlike animals, somehow invented certain sounds to express thoughts and feelings, actions and things, so that they could communicate with each other; and that later they agreed upon certain signs, called letters, which could be combined to represent those sounds, and which could be written down. Those sounds, whether spoken or written in letters, we call words.
The power of words, then, lies in their associations – the things they bring up before our minds. Words become filled with meaning for us by experience; and the longer we live, the more certain words recall to us the happy and sad events of our past; the more we read and learn, the larger the number of words that mean something to us becomes.
Great writers are those who not only have great thoughts but also express these thoughts in words which appeal powerfully to out minds and feelings. This attractive use of words is what we call literary style. Above all, the real poet is a master of words. He can express his meaning in words which sing like music, and, by their position and association, can move men to tears. We should therefore learn to choose our words carefully and use them correctly, or they will make our speech dull and silly.

Why don’t birds get lost on their long migratory (迁徙的) flight? Scientists have puzzled over this question for many years. Now they are beginning to fill in the blanks.
Not long ago, experiments showed that birds rely on the sun to guide them during daylight hours. But what about birds that fly mainly by night? Tests with artificial (人造的) stars have proved conclusively that certain night-flying birds are able to follow stars in their long-distance flights.
One such bird – a warbler – had spent its lifetime in a cage and had never flown under a natural sky. Yet it showed an inborn ability to use stars for guidance. The bird’s cage was laced under an artificial star-filled sky at migration time. The bird tried to fly in the same direction as that taken by his outdoor cousins. Any change in the position of the artificial stars caused a change in the direction of his flight.
Scientists think that warblers, when flying in daylight, use the sun for guidance. But stars are apparently their main means of directed flight in the night. What do they do when stars are hidden by clouds? Apparently, they find their way by such landmarks as mountain ranges, coast lines and river courses. But when it is too dark to see these, the warblers circle helplessly, unable to find their way.
31.Which of the following is NOT true about migratory bird’s flight?
A. Some birds fly mainly by day.
B. Some birds fly mainly by night.
C. Birds like to fly during daylight hours.
D. Birds depend on the sun or stars to guide them.
32. What do we know about the experimental warbler?
A. It was set free for the experiment.
B. It had never flown freely outdoors.
C. It had never been placed under the sun.
D. It had lost its way in its daylight flight.
【解析】通过此句One such bird – a warbler – had spent its lifetime in a cage and had never flown under a natural sky.可以看出，这只鸣鸟一生都被关在笼子里面，而之前从未在笼子外面自由翱翔过，故选B答案。
33. What do we know about warblers as a whole?
A. They do not have intelligence.
B. They tend to take the same route as other birds.
C. They do not need to learn to fly in the right way.
D. They cannot sense changes in the position of the moon.
34. What does the passage say about warblers’ sense of direction?
A. They get lost under star-filled sky.
B. They lose their way when it is too dark.
C. They are not able to see clearly at night.
D. They usually depend on clouds for direction.
【解析】通过此句But when it is too dark to see these, the warblers circle helplessly, unable to find their way可以看出，太黑的时候它们会迷失方向。A答案与原文相反，在满天繁星的夜里它们不会迷路;C答案原文未提及;D答案原文当中是说云层遮挡住星星后悔让鸟迷路，而不是通过云来判断方向，D答案明显错误。
35. What does “fill in the blanks” in the first paragraph mean?
A. “to do the exercise”
B. “to take the test”
C. “to know the right words”
D. “to know the answer”
Section Two: Read the following passage and choose the most suitable sentence from A-G for each blank. There are two extra sentences which you do not need.
A. Pick a place where your children can study properly.
B. Hold them to the schedule they create for themselves.
C. Finally, spend time with your kids when they’re studying.
D. Keep the atmosphere light and offer lots of encouragement, too.
E. Instead, use TV as a treat or a reward when the homework is completed.
F. Try to stop this bad habit by offering some sort of reward.
G. One of the best ways to form good study habits for your kids is to design a schedule that they keep to.
Getting your children to study can be a little like getting them to eat their vegetables.
36 . Make a study time and have it at the same time every day. This will help your kids to learn to schedule their day and will give them a sense of control over how they spend their time.
Allow them to study in blocks of time, such as for half an hour with a five-minute break in the middle.
37 .Ideal (理想的)study times are after dinner or right after school before dinner.
Never allow your children to study in front of the television, as that will encourage passive activity. 38
You’ll also need to help your kids find the right place to study. After you’ve set up a good study time for little learners, set up a good place where they can get those creative juices flowing.
39 . Make sure there is a table or a desk and a comfortable chair.
40 This includes helping them out with their homework sometimes and being there for them with the answers to any questions. The input you give your children during study periods will help form a bond and help make studying enjoyable.
【解析】通过后面这一句 Make a study time and have it at the same time every day. This will help your kids to learn to schedule their day可知前面应该表达的是给自己的孩子设计一个日程表。
Part IV. English-Chinese Translation (15 points)
Directions: Read the following passage and then translate the five underlined sentences into Chinese
My name is Wang Kun. (41)Ever since middle school,my sister Wang Wei and I have dreamed about taking a great bike trip. Two years ago she bought an expensive mountain bike and then she persuaded me to buy one. Last year,she visited our cousins, Dao Wei and Yu Hang at their college if Kunming. (42)They are Dai and grew up in western Yunnan Province near the Lancang River, the Chinese part of the river that is called the Mekong River in other countries. Wang Wei soon got time interested in cycling too. After graduating from college,we finally got the chance to take a bike trip.I asked my sister,“Where are we going?” (43)It was my sister who first had the idea to cycle along the entire Mekong River from where it begins to where it ends. Now she is planning our schedule for the trip.(44)I am fond of my sister but she has one serious shortcoming. She can be really stubborn. (45)Although she didn’t know the best way of getting to places, she insisted that she organize the trip properly. Now I know that the proper way is always her way. I kept asking her,“When are we leaving and when are we coming back?”I asked her whether she had looked at a map yet.Of course she hadn’t; my sister doesn’t care about details.So I told her that the source of the Mekong is in Qinghai Province.
【解析】注意Dai翻译成傣族;the Chinese part of the river是一个同位语，说明Lancang river的，而后面that is called the Mekong River in other countries是一个定语从句，用来修饰the Chinese part of the river的。整个句子较为复杂，注意翻译的逻辑性。
【解析】It was…that在此处是强调句句型，不用翻译，from where it begins to where it ends翻译成从源头到尽头。
【解析】be fond of意思为喜欢、喜爱;

Part VI. Writing(25 points)
Directions: You are supposed to write a composition on the topic “Campus Life”. You should write no less than 100 words in three paragraphs and you should base your composition on the outline given below in Chinese.
Early in senior high school, we longed to be enrolled in a university. Now the dream has come true. But how do we college students like our campus life?
Definitely, some college students relish it, finding it colorful and rewarding. Besides study, they spend considerable amount of time improving themselves in various aspects. Yet others do not think much of their campus life, thus do not benefit as much. In their eyes, the university is just a bigger high school. The only difference is that they have more time at their disposal without parents looking over their shoulder.
As to me, campus life is ideal if only I have abundant books to read, some friends to keep me accompanied, a couple of conscientious professors to instruct me, and an easy access to the Internet.
