PartReading Comprehension (30%)

Directions: There are three passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A,B,C and D. You should decide on the best choice and blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet

Passage 1

Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage:

The reflective towers of New York City, which is on the Atlantic migrating(Ǩ)route , can be deadly for birds. We live in an age of glass, said Ms.Laurel, an architect(76)It can be a perfect mirror in certain lights, and the larger the glass, the more dangerous it is About 90,000 birds are killed by flying into building in the city each year. Often, they strike the lower levels of glass towers after searching for food in nearby parks. Such crashes are the second-leading cause of death for migrating birds, after habitat(Ϣ)loss, with an estimated number of death ranging up to a billion a year

(77)As glass office and apartment towers have increased in the last decade, so, too, have calls to make them less deadly to birds. San Francisco adopted bird-safety standard for new building in July. The United States Green Building Council, a nonprofit industry group that encourages the creation of environmentally conscious buildings, will introduce a bird-safety credit this as part of its environmental certification process

There are no easy fixes, however. A few researchers are exploring glass designs that use ultraviolet(ߵ)signals, but they are still in their infancy. Covers, dot patterns, shades and net are the main options available

Often, only one section of a building needs to be changed. You dont necessarily have to treat every window, Ms.Laurel said. It would be too expensive to do the whole building The Jacob Convention Center, which has been undergoing alterations, is the most recent building to voluntarily correct the problem of bird crashes. The architects used less reflective glass and dot patterns

Passage 2

Question 6 to 10 are based on the fowling passage:

Todays students have grown up hearing more about Bill Gates than F.D.R., and they live in a world where amazing innovations()are common. The current 18-year-olds, after all, were 8 when Google was founded by two students at Stanford; Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook in 2004 while he was Harvard and they were entering high school. Having grown up digital(ֵ)they are impatient to get on with life

The easiest way to find kids like these is to check in on entrepreneurship(ҵҲ)education, in which colleges and universities try to prepare their students to recognize opportunities and seize them

A report published last year by the Kauffman Foundation, which finances programs to promote innovation on campuses, noted that more than 50,000 entrepreneurship programs are offered on two-and four-year campusesup from just 250 courses in 1985. Lesa Mitchell , a Kauffman vice president, says that the foundation is extending the reach of its academic influence, which used to be found only in business schools. Now, the concept of entrepreneurship is blooming in engineering programs and medical school, and even in the liberal arts. Our interest is the programs, she says. We need to spread out from the business school

Either as class projects or on their own, students in a variety of majors are coming up with ideas, writing business plans and seeing them through to prototype and, often, market. In their spare time, students in agricultural economics at Purdue invent new uses for bean; industrial design majors at Syracuse, in special laboratory, create wearable technologies

(78)The entrepreneurship movement has its critics, especially among those who see college as a time for extensive academic exploration. I just dont think that entrepreneurship ranks so high in terms of national need, says Daniel S.Greenberg, author of Science for sale: The perils, Rewards and Delusions of Campus Capitalism

Leonard A.Schlesinger, Babson Colleges president, says that the question of whether innovation can really be taught is an age-old argument

6. When Google and Facebook were established, the founders were still__D__A  

A. in high school       B. in the army  C. in primary school        D. at college

7. According to the passage, what is the main purpose of entrepreneurship education?  B

A. To prepare students for future academic life

B. To prepare students to find opportunities and seize them

C. To prepare students for overseas career

D. To prepare student to develop interpersonal skills

8. The word prototype in the fourth paragraph is most likely to mean_A_

A. model           B. strategy   C. method         D. stage

9. What does Daniel S.Grennberg think of entrepreneurship education?  D

A. Entrepreneurship, or at least certain elements of it, can be taught

B. An entrepreneurship program can help students find what they really like and entrepreneurship isnt all about business

C. Entrepreneurship should be spread across different fields

D. Colleges shouldnt put too much emphasis on entrepreneurship programs

10. What is the main idea of the passage?  C

A. Entrepreneurship courses in business schools

B. Qualities of an entrepreneur

C. Entrepreneurship education in colleges

D. Kids in the information age

Passage 3

Question 11 to 15 are based on the following passage:

Regret is as common an emotion as love or fear, and it can be nearly as powerful. So, in a new paper, two researchers set about trying to find out what the typical American regrets most. In telephone surveys, Neal Rose, a psychologist and professor of marketing at the School of Management at Northwestern Universtiy, and Mike Morrison, a doctoral candidate in psychology at University of Illinois, asked 370 Americans, aged 19 to 103,to talk about their most notable regret .Participants were asked what the regret was, when it happened, whether it was a result of something they did or didnt do, and whether it was something that could still be fixed

The most commonly mentioned regret involved romance ()(18%)----lost loves or unfulfilled relationships. Family regrets came in second (16%)whit people still feeling badly about being unkind to their brothers or sisters in childhood. Other frequently reported regrets involved career (13%)  ,education (12%)money(10%) and parenting(9^%)

Rose and Morrisons study, which is to be published in social psychological and personality science, is significant in that it surveyed a wide range of the American public, including people of all ages and socio-economic and educational backgrounds. Previous studies on regret have focused largely on college students, who predictably tend to have education-focused regrets, like wishing they had studied harder or a different major. The new survey shows that in the larger population, a persons major. The new survey shows that in the larger population, a persons life circumstancesaccomplishments, shortcomings ,situation in lifeinject considerable fuel into the fires of regret,the authors write

(79)People with less education, for instance were more likely to report education regret. People with higher levels of education had the most career regrets. And those with no romantic partner tended to hold regrets regarding love. Broken down(ֽ⡢ϸ)by sex, more women(44%) than men (19%) had regrets about love and family----not surprising, since women value social relationships more than men, the authors write. In contrast ,men (34%) were more likely than women (27%) to mention work-related regrets, wishing theyd chosen a different career path, for instance ,or followed their passion(80)Many participants also reported wishing they had worked less to spend more time with their children

There was an even split between regrets about inaction (not doing something) and action (do something you wish you didnt) .But, like previous studies, the current research found that some regrets are more likely than others to persist over time: people tend to hang on longer to the regret of inaction; meanwhile, regrets of action tend to be more recent

11.In the second paragraph, the author shows _A_

A. the researchers findings      B. the importance of family

C. the importance of money     D. the importance of career

12. According to the passage , college student participants mainly had regrets about their _B_

C. More women than men had regrets about love and family

D. The regret of action seems to last longer than that of inaction
