Section III Reading Comprehension    (40 minutes)

Part ADirections: Read the following three texts. Answer the questions on each text by choosing A, B, C or D. Mark your answers on ANSWER SHEET 1.

   Nisaburo and Hiroko Ohata are unlike most Japanese couples their age. Sure, Hiroko, 58, is worried about her husband’ s high blood pressure, while Nisaburo, 60, promises his wife that if she loses 18 pounds they’ll take a trip abroad. What makes the Ohatas different is how they met, through a matchmaking organization for single seniors. “On the second date, he asked if I wanted to meet his family,” says Hiroko. “I took that as a proposal. “ A little rushed, perhaps, but 17 years after his wife’ s death, Nisaburo knew he’ d found a new wife. The couple just celebrated four years of marital happiness last month.    In the past, people like Nisaburo and Hiroko might have chosen to live out their lives alone. But as Japan’ s society ages, attitudes about love and remarriage late in life are changing. In 2006, according to government data, three times more men and nearly five times more women in their 60s and 70s married for at least the second time, compared with 20 years before.    Granted, change is slow. For this silver-haired population, the concept of “dating” is still masked by the term ocha nomi tomodachi(friends having tea together). And older people often need help meeting prospective mates. That’ s where specialized matchmaking services such as Ai Senior—”Love Senior”—come in. When Shunichi Ikeda started the online service three years ago, he was surprised by how many visits he was getting from people in their 60s.    Ikeda says that his clients have an “American perspective” about the dating scene. And their children are often very supportive, sometimes being the ones to register parents. “More older people are realizing that life is supposed to be enjoyable—not lonely,” says Ikeda. About 17% of the matchmaking clients in Japan are over 50 years old, according to Ai Senior, and seniors’ market share has more than doubled over the past three years.    “For older, single men, even doing laundry or cooking is difficult,” says Ikeda. “They want to live with a woman. Likewise, it can be boring for women living alone. They want to provide for someone. “

 

46. According to the writer, the Ohatas are different from most senior Japanese couples in that      .

A.they remarried with the help of an agency

B.they decided to marry on the second date

C.the husband suffers from a health problem

D.the wife is concerned about losing weight

正确答案:A

47. As is implied in the text, Nisaburo’ s proposal on the second date might be considered      .

A.typical of single seniors

B.irresponsible to his family

C.a surprise to the woman

D.a decision made in haste

正确答案:D

解析:推断题。从文章第一段第六句话“A little rushed,perhaps…”可知:Nisaburo第二次见面就提出面见家人有些仓促。故选D。

A.live a longer life

B.solve financial problems

C.make their life enjoyable

D.support their children together

正确答案:C

         When you become a parent, much of your focus shifts from your own future to your kids’ future. But one of the most effective ways to help your children learn to dream big is to ensure that your own dreams don’ t get pushed aside by everyday demands.    Our everyday experiences provide learning opportunities. When you tap into them, you create a lifelong learning habit that will always keep you growing. Even your most disappointing experiences can be turned into breakthroughs.    Every dream begins in the imagination. Take a few minutes to sit down with a notebook and think about where you would like to be in 20 years. Write down details about all aspects of your ideal life. Feel free to imagine. Don’t worry about whether vou know how to get there now—you have 20 years to figure that out. You can also start by picking a year in the future and making a collection of things you’ d like in your life by then. Check in on it from time to time to see where you’ ve made progress.    We’ re often encouraged to work on our weaknesses, but working on your strengths is easier and creates better results. For help of identifying them, ask some friends, or colleagues to write down what they most appreciate about you. They’ll enjoy doing this, and you’ll feel great when you read the responses. Once you know your strengths, you can put them to work to help you achieve your dreams.    Confidence is the foundation for all your other abilities. “Progress, not perfection” is a great saying to keep your confidence high. Every night, write down five achievements that happened that day. Big or small, it doesn’ t matter. If proper, add ideas for further progress and actions you can take to get started.    Find ways to add what you love to do to your life now. This will give you more energy and keep you connected with your bigger dreams. Making a list of old hobbies is a great way to restore your old passions. Things you’ re enthusiastic about come with their own store of energy. Connecting with them can give you a push when you most need it.

   Commercial classical music radio in North America has changed dramatically over the past decade. The number of stations has shrunk very rapidly—many operators dropped the format in favor of something more profitable, like pop or rock, with their crazy youthful audience. But the availability of satellite radio, Internet streaming and digital technologies has introduced new options for classical fans.    In the city of Toronto, a familiar media player entered the tray last year: Moses Znaimer, 65, the famous brave television pioneer who was the driving force behind Toronto’ s CITY-TV. Eleven months ago, he took ownership of Classical 96. 3 FM, Canada’ s first and largest commercial classical station, which “re-launched” this month with some new on-air hosts, a totally new schedule, and more attention to singing art and less to full-length symphonies.    The popular station airs selections(usually no more than 10 to 15 minutes long)of greatest-hits classical works, 24 hours a day. This usually means single movements of larger works and other pieces, with commercial ads in between. The station may never be the preferred destination of highbrow classical fans, who seek full-length symphonies and operas. But this doesn’ t seem to trouble Znaimer, who says of his main competitor, CBC Radio Two: “ They play classical, and they do it well when they do it, but they don’ t do it all the time, and they’ re doing it less and less. “    Marilyn Gilbert, a Toronto artist manager, also makes a comparison to Canada’ s national broadcaster when she praises Znaimer’ s station: “Classical 96. 3 FM is very important for the community and the country, especially in view of the changes that are going on at CBC. “    Znaimer is best-known for his influential work in television, but he was also one of the creators of Cross Country Checkup, the longest-running show on CBC Radio. Today he calls Classical 96.3 FM “arguably the most successful of all classical music stations on the continent. At about 800,000 listeners per week, we are larger even than the New York Times classical station[WQXR-FM]. “ And under his excellent and creative leadership, the sound of the station has become livelier.

Part BDirections: Read the text, match the items (61-65) to one of the statements (A to G) given below. Mark your answers on ANSWER SHEET 1.

   Laura:    I think that I have to agree with you. The idea to surround yourself with good and successful people still rings true. The electronic age may aid contact and communication. However, it does not substitute for looking someone in the eye. One has to have that person-to-person feel to instinctively grasp inner character. I’ m sure that a combination of the two types of interaction will lend flavor to the future.    Mike:    I naturally tend to prefer face-to-face relationship building. However, having friends and business acquaintances all over the world, I find that tools such as Linkedln are quite useful. Both enable me to maintain old connections and make new connections with people I find I have something in common with. Learning how to use these vehicles is the key. I think we are presently in the process of doing just that.    Nick:    Just like what you have already mentioned, there is obviously a big difference between how people meet and interact on the net and in real world. What the network world offers is a more relaxed, fun, expressive place to be. I like social networking particularly because it offers me a chance to make a lot of friends. That social networking sites do not build long-lasting relationships is just a misconception.    Linda:    It is all about a combination of various networking sites, and, if you want to do business, just a few e-mail exchanges. That’ s how I get to know my clients. Face-to-face networking is not always possible for me. I have clients around the globe, 99% of whom I’ ve never met in person. People who oppose social-networking sites don’ t understand the real changes that have taken place in the last decade.    Helen:    Sure enough, social networks are used to reconnect with friends. But they are also a tool for getting your business recognized. They are great places to place ads or comments about your business, because they are open to the public to view. It can be used as a way to network with would-be consumers. It is a perfect way to promote your business to the widest range of people globally.    Now match the name of each person(61 to 65)to the appropriate statement.     Note: there are two extra statements.        Statements[A]I do not think that online friendships are short-lived.[B]Networking can make your companies better known.[C]I doubt if people could use networking vehicles properly.[D]To benefit from networking, you should learn how to use it.[E]To understand people better, you have to meet them in person.[F]Social networking reflects the new demands of the changing time.[G]In my opinion, networking has more disadvantages than advantages.

正确答案:D

解析:主旨题。迈克认为学会使用一些网络工具能够更好地与人交流。这与D项“为了能使用网络工具进行有效的交际,你应该学会如何使用它”所表示的意思相同。故选D。

正确答案:A

解析:主旨题。尼克认为他选择网络的最主要原因是网络能够提供许多结交朋友的机会,并且这种关系可以长期维持。这与A项“我认为网上的友情不是短期的”所表示的意思相同。故选A。

解析:主旨题。琳达认为网络为其提供客户,那些反对网络的人不能理解过去十年的变化。这与F项“网络社会折射出不断变化中的新需要”所表示的意思相同。故选F。

Part B


67. Below is a chart showing the number of students wearing glasses within a class of 50 students in a junior high school. Look at the chart and write an essay of about 120 words making reference to the following points:    1)tendency of short-sightedness among the students:    2)possible reasons and solutions to the problem.

正确答案:         Poor Eyesight among Students    From the picture, we can see that the number of students wearing glasses in a class of 50 is on the rise from 16 in 2010 to 34 in 2012. Actually, the phenomenon is universal in junior and senior schools in China. But what brings about this problem for our youngsters?    In my opinion, heavy learning is the first reason. Nowadays students have to devote more time to learning, which often leads to overtired eyes. Secondly, weak sense of protection is also responsible for the poorer eyesight among the young people. Finally, an unbalanced diet is also to blame. Figuring out the causes, I strongly suggest the students take every possible measures to protect their eyesight. For example, taking several breaks during learning to relax the eyes: avoiding the overuse of the eyes: having a more balanced diet.
