Part Reading Comprehension (30%)

Directions: There are three passages in this part. Each passage is followed 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 most famous collections of fairy tales are the ones by Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm. The Grimms published their first fairy-tale collection in 1812.They disappearing German folk culture. Their first edition () was a scholarly book that carefully recorded the oral tales. They were surprised when some of their early readers suggested that the stories might be interesting to children

But the Grimms needed money. They had made a bad deal with their publisher and received little payment for their first book. At one point Wilhelm complained there wasnt a chair in his house one could sit on without worrying it would break. So he took the hint and set to work to make a book that would be suitable for children. He selected a few of the tales, made them much longer , and polished up the language. He didnt add morals , but he did slip in character judgments and moralizing comments wherever he could

The Grimms fairy tales also have one characteristic that would seem to make them unsuitable for children. Many of them include violent incidents. In Hansel and Gretel eaten by a wolf. When he revised the tales for children, Wilhelm Grimm retained the violence. In fact, he sometimes even ramped it up. For example, in the first edition, the one intended for children, that her birds peck()out their eyes

Why, then, have the Grimms fairy tales become classic of childrens literature, so much so that it is hard to imagine a child who doesnt know Cinderellas story or Snow Whites?

One answer is that only a few of the tales survived into modern times. The first edition of the Grimms fairy tales had 210 tales. By 1825 it was down to 50. And taday only a dozen or so of the tales are often reprinted in childrens collections

(76)But the deeper answer is that the tales that have lasted are magical adventures that help children deal with the struggles and fears of their everyday lives

Passage 2

Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage:

As the school year kicks off, parents are once again struggling to cajole (ƭ) and, if need be, drag their exhausted teens out of bed, That image may make you laugh, but lack of sleep is no joke. (77)Teenagers who dont get enough rest have more learning, health, behavior and mood problems than students who get at least nine hours a night. Long-term lack of sleeo is tied to heart disease, overweight, depression and a shortened life. Lack of sleep can be especially deadly for teens; car accidents are the leading cause of death among teenagers , and safety experts believe sleepy driving is a major factor

Unfortunately, few teenagers get the sleep they need. In a survey of middle- and high-school students, University of Colorado researchers found that 82 percent said they woke up tied and unrefreshed, and more than half had trouble concentrating during the day at least once a week

Blame multitasking for some of this. Many students are juggling after-school activities, homework and part-time jobs. Even when they manage to fulfill these obligations by a reasonable hour, television, the internet, video games, phone calls and text message to friends often keep them awake deep into the night. Taking soda and energy drinks late in the day and going to late-night parties on weekends add to sleep for most teens to fall asleep before 11 pm. Class usually beings before 8:15 am, with many high schools starting as weends to catch up, making it even harder to fall asleep on Sunday night and wake up Monday morning . Playing catch-up on weekends also doesnt help teens stay refreshed when the need it most: during the week at school

Since the 1990s, middle and high school in more than two dozen states have experimented with later school start times. (78) The results have been encouraging: more sleep, increased attendance, better grades and fewer driving accidents. But most school still start early, meaning teens have their work cut out for them if they want to get enough sleep

6. According to the passage, poor sleep can be linked to all of the following EXCEPT____

A. heart disease              B. car accidents

C. skin problems             D. poor concentration

7. The main idea of Paragraph 3 is______

A. how sleep deprivation(ȱ)can be treated

B. what causes sleep deprivation

C. who is most at risk for sleep deprivation

D. why sleep deprivation is a serious concern

8. What does the word juggling in Paragragph3 probably mean?

A. Dealing with at the same time

B. Striking a balance between

C. Weekend catch-up sleep

D. Healthy diet

9. Which of the following is NOT to balme for teenager lack of sleep?

A. Multitasking          B. Striking a balance between

C. Weekend catch-up sleep  D. Healthy diet

10. According to the passage, what have some school done to help their students get enough sleep?

A. Educating their students about the importance of sleep

B. Monitoring their students late-night activities

C. Delaying school start times

D. Setting strict rules

Passage 3

Questions 11 to 15 are based on the following passage:

As any middle-class parent knows, unpaid work experience can give youngsters a valuable introduction to a secure job. The government has recognized it too, abandoning rules in 2011 that had formerly stopped 16-to 24-years-olds from doing unpaid work while claiming unemployment benefit. But moving from that to forcing them to work without pay in order to collect these benefits has proved a big step

(79)More than one million young people in Britain are unemployed, the highest number since the mid-1980s. Keen both to cut the welfare bill and to avoid the depressed future wages that may result from early unemployment, the government has impressed future wages that may result from early unemployment, the government has introduced an ambitious program of reform to get youngsters off welfare and into work. A key part of it is ensuring that no one gets benefit from the government for long; ministers are keen to avoid what happened after the early-1980s recession(˥)when unemployment continued in some parts of the country for a long time after the economy began to improve

To help young people into work, ministers had persuaded lots of employers, including bakery chains, bookshops, and supermarkets, to take on unemployed youths, who receive work experience but no pay, with the prospect of proper job for those who shine. (80)Some 35,000 youngsters participated last year; half found paid work soon after finishing the scheme

The idea of getting young adults used to showing up for work is popular with voters: according to a survey published in February, about 60% of people support the program. Equally attractive was the option of compelling them to work: under the existing arrangements youngsters could choose whether or not to accept a place, but if they dropped put after the end of the first week, they stood to lose up to two weeks benefits

Yet the scheme has also polarized(ֻ)opinion: a third of people are consistently opposed. Following a noisy Right to Work campaign that accused employers of co-operating secretly with this from getting worse, Chris Grayling, an employment minister, admitted that young people could leave their work experience at any time without being punished for doing so. This not only halted the flight of employers(for now, at least)but also enabled him to announce that new firms have agreed to take part in the program.

11. According to the passage, young people in Britain_____

A. are used to showing up for work

B. value unpaid work very much

C. are always opposed to unpaid work

D. could learn something about job security through unpaid work

12. According to the passage, which of the following is NOT TRUE?

A. Most voters support the governments effort to help young people to work

B. Some people protest against the governments attempt to force young people to work

C. There are more than one million young people who took part in the program

D. There are more than one million young people who are jobless

13. According to the author, the British government is trying to______

A. punish young people if they are not cooperating with it

B. reform the unemployed youngsters

C. the economic slowdown

D. reduce welfare spending

14. The word shine in Paragraph 3 means ______

A. do well                 B. reflect light

C. look happy               D. produce light

15. Which of the following is an appropriate title for this passage?

By the time I finished high school, my interest in animals had grown, and enrolled at a university to study biology.
