  Part I Reading Comprehension(30%)

  Passage 1

  Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage:

  One study shows that Americans prefer to answer with a brief “Yes”, “No”, “Sure”, or the very popular “Yeah” rather than with a longer reply. (76) But brief replies do not mean Americans are impolite of unfriendly to some extent. Very often, Americans are in a hurry and may greet you with a single word “ Hi”, indeed; this is a greeting you will hear again and again during your stay in the United States. It is used by everyone, regardless of rank, age or occupation. However, those who are accustomed to longer greetings may require a little more time before they feel comfortable with American simple talk.

  Americans sometimes use plain talk when they are uncomfortable. (77) If people praise them or thank them in an especially polite way, they may become uncomfortable and not know what to say in reply . They don't want to be impolite or rude, you can be sure that they liked what was said about them. Except for certain holidays, such as Christmas, Americans don't usually give gifts. Thus, you will find Americans embarrassed as they accept gifts, especially if they have nothing to give in return. They are generally a warm but informal people.

  Passage 2

  Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage:

  (78) The advantages and disadvantages of a large population have long been a subject of discussion among economists (經濟學家). It has been argued that the supply of good land is limited. To feed a large population, inferior land must be cultivated and the good land worded intensively. Thus , each person produces less and this means a lower average income than could be obtained with a smaller population. Other economists have argued that a large population gives more scope for specialization and the development of facilities such as ports, roads and railways, which are not likely to be built unless there is a big demand to justify them.

  One of the difficulties in carrying out a world-wide birth control program lies in the fact that official attitudes to population growth vary from country to country depending on the level of industrial development and the availability of food and raw materials. In the developing country where a vastly expanded population is pressing hard upon the limits of food, space and natural resources, it will be the first concern of government to place a limit on the birthrate, whatever the consequences may be. In the highly industrialized society the problem may be more complex. A decreasing birth rate may lead to unemployment because it results in a declining market for manufactured goods. (79)When the pressure of population on housing declines, prices also decline and the building industry is weakened. Faced with considerations such as these, the government of a developed country may well prefer to see a slowly increasing population, rather than one which is stable or in decline.

  6. A smaller population may mean _______.

  A. higher productivity, but a lower average income

  B. lower productivity, but a higher average income

  C. lower productivity, and a lower average income

  D. higher productivity, and a higher average income

  7. According to the passage, a large population will provide a chance for developing _______.

  A. agriculture    B. transport system   C. industry    D. national economy

  8. In a developed country, people will perhaps go out of work if the birthrate _______.

  A. goes up   B. is decreasing    C. remains stable   D is out of control

  9. According to the passage slowly rising birthrate perhaps is good for ________.

  A. a developed nation

  B. a developing nation

  C. every nation with a big population

  D. every nation with a small population

  10.   It is no easy job to carry out a general plan for birth control throughout the world because ______.

  A. there are too many underdeveloped countries in the world

  B. underdeveloped countries have low level of industrial development

  C. different governments have different views about the problem

  D. even developed countries may have complex problems

  Passage 3

  Questions 11 to 15 are based on the following passage:
