  Part Ⅱ
  Reading Comprehension (35 minutes)
  Directions:There are 4 reading 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 mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.
  Passage One
  Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage:
  When Kathie Gifford's face was splashed across the newspapers in 1996 after her lucrative line of Wal mart clothing was exposed as the work of underpaid laborers in New York City's Chinatown, the Department of Labor and the White House teamed up to condemn such practices. With much fanfare, President Clinton's administration launched the "No Sweat" campaign, which pressured retailers and manufacturers to submit to periodic independent inspection of their workplace conditions.
  This campaign urged manufacturers to sign the Workplace Code of Conduct, a promise to selfregulate that has since been adopted by a handful of retailers and many of the nation's largest manufacturers, including Nike and L.L. Bean. However, the Department of Defense, which has a $ 1 billion garment business that would make it the country's 14th largest retail apparel outlet, has not signed the Code of Conduct. In addition, it has not agreed to demand that its contractors submit to periodic inspections.
  Because the Department of Defense has not agreed to adhere to the code, the job of stopping public sector sweatshops falls to the Department of Labor. Federal contractors that persist in violating wage laws or safety and health codes can lose their lucrative taxpayerfinanced contracts. But Suzanne Seiden, a deputy administrator at the Department of Labor, says that to her knowledge, the department has never applied that rule to government apparel manufacturers. "I just assume that they are adhering to safety and health requirements," she says. According to records obtained by Mother Jones, through a Freedom of Information Act request, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Lion 32 times for safety and health violations in the past 12 years.
  21.What is this passgage mainly concerned with?
  A)The functions of the Department of Labor in America.
  B)A serious problem threatening American economy.
  C)The successful attempt of regulating sweatshops in America.
  D)The seriousness of the problem of sweatshops in America.
  22.According to the passage, Kathie Gifford ____.
  A) was one of the underpaid laborers in New York City's Chinatown
  B) was one of the well paid laborers in New York City's Chinatown
  C) made much money from cheap laborers in New York City's Chinatown
  D) wrote a newspaper article exposing the practice of employing cheap laborers
  23.The underlined phrase "to submit to" is closest in meaning to ____.
  A) to accept unwillingly
  B) to refuse coldly
  C) to welcome warm heartedly
  D) to blame strongly
  24.Which of the following statements about the Department of Defense is true?
  A) It will become the country's 14th largest retail apparel manufacturer.
  B) It hasn't acted according to the Workplace Code of Conduct.
  C) It has demanded its contractors to sign the Workplace Code of Conduct.
  D) It has teamed up with the Department of Labor to launch a campaign.
  25.What was the purpose of President Clinton's administration launching the "No Sweat" campaign?
  A) To urge manufacturers to obey the Workplace Code of Conduct.
  B) To remind the manufacturers of the Workplace Code of Conduct.
  C) To urge the Department of Labor to take its responsibility.
  D) To urge the Department of Defense to inspect manufacturers.

  Passage Two
  Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage:
  The term investment portfolio conjures up visions of the truly rich-the Rockefellers, the Wal Mart Waltons, Bill Gates. But today, everyone-from the Philadelphia firefighter, his parttime receptionist wife and their three children, to the single Los Angeles lawyer starting out on his own-needs a portfolio.
  A portfolio is simply a collection of financial assets. It may include real estate, rare stamps and coins, precious metals and even artworks. But those are for people with expertise. What most of us need to know about are stocks, bonds and cash (including such cash equivalents as moneymarket funds).
  How do you decide what part of your portfolio should go to each of the big three? Begin by understanding that stocks pay higher returns but are more risky; bonds and cash pay lower returns but are less risky.
  Research by Ibbotson Associates, for example, shows that largecompany stocks, on average, have returned 11.2 percent annually since 1926. Over the same period, by comparison, bonds have returned an annual average of 5.3 percent and cash, 3.8 percent.
  But shortterm risk is another matter. In 1974, a one year $1000 investment in the stock market would have declined to $735.
  With bonds, there are two kinds of risk: that the borrower won't pay you back and that the money you'll get won't be worth very much. The U.S. government stands behind treasury bonds, so the credit risk is almost nil. But the inflation risk remains. Say you buy a $1000 bond maturing in ten years. If inflation averages about seven percent over that time, then the $1000 you receive at maturity can only buy $500 worth of today's goods.
  With cash, the inflation risk is lower, since over a long period you can keep rolling over your CDs every year (or more often). If inflation rises, interest rates rise to compensate.
  As a result, the single most imortant rule in building a portfolio is this: If you don't need the money for a long time, then put it into stocks. If you need it soon, put it into bonds and cash.
  26.This passage is intended to give advice on ____.
  A) how to avoid inflation risks
  B) what kinds of bonds to buy
  C) how to get rich by investing in stock market
  D) how to become richer by spreading the risk
  27.The author mentions such millionaires as the Rockefellers and Bill Gates to show that ____.
  A) they are examples for us on our road to wealth
  B) a portfolio is essential to financial success
  C) they are really rich people
  D) they started out on their own
  28.Which of the following statements will the author support?
  A) Everybody can get rich with some financial assets.
  B) The credit risk for treasury bonds is extremely high.
  C) It's no use trying to know the advantages of stocks, bonds and cash.
  D) Everybody should realize the importance of distribution of their financial assets.
  29.The word "returns" in paragraph three can be best replaced by "____."
  A) returning journeys
  B) profits
  C) savings
  D) investments
  30.The author of the passage points out that ____.
  A) keeping cash is the only way to avoid risks
  B) the longer you own a stock, the more you lost
  C) the high rate of profit and high rate of risk coexist in stocks
  D) the best way to accumulate wealth is by investing in stocks

  Part Ⅳ Error Correction (15 minutes)
  Directions: This part consists of a short passage. In the passage there are altogether 10 mistakes, one in each numbered line. You may have to change a word, add a word or delete a word. If you change a word, cross it out and write the correct word in the corresponding blank. If you add a word, put an insertion mark (∧) in the right place and write the missing word in the blank. If you delete a word, cross it out and put a slash (/) in the blank.
  Every year, many foreign students go to America to study English. Some of them will participate in a homestay program and live with an American family. However, others will take a different decision. They will live with friends from their own country. I believe that if a foreign student looks at both possibilities, he will decide to live with an American family. Even though there are one or two drawbacks to the homestay way, there are far more benefits.
  In making his decision about how to live in the United States, the foreign student is smart to consider one or two disadvantages to live with an American family. First of all, he must realize that he is going to feel homesick at first. Living in an American home with people of other language and culture may cause this feeling to increase. Also, the American family could become very protective of him. They may ask him where he is going, when he leaves home and when he will return. Despite of these two disadvantages, there is a stronger argument in favor of living with Americans. By living in an American home, the student has an opportunity to become familiar with American customs and culture. For instance, he will learn the importance of family closeness. He can see how the children communicate with their parents and how the parents educate their children. He will not feel like a stranger because the American family will help him adjusting to a new life. In an American home, he can learn English fast. Family members can help him with his homeworks. When he speaks English, they can point out his errors. In this way, he can learn English naturally. Although there are some disadvantage to live with an American family, there are heavier benefits. If the foreign student at first realizes the value of learning about a new culture and improving his English at the same time, he will find studying there a very big experience.

  Part Ⅳ
  71.redistributing改为redistribute。attempt to 后面一般接动词原型,而不接动名词,因为这里的to是不定式符号,而不是介词,即attempt to do sth.。
  72.you 改为others。此句是说,如果一部分相对比较穷,那么一部分人就会相对比较富。将人群分为两部分,此处就不能用you,others才可以表示人群的一部分。
  73.在interests和than中间加上rather。此句不是表示比较(than),而是表示转折(公众政策反映他们的利益,而不是穷人的利益),所以应该用rather than (而不是)代替than。
  74.doing改为done。此句是被动语态,表示"脏活被完成",get 是系动词,所以应用do的过去分词形式done。
  75.will改为would。此句使用了虚拟语气,表示对现在情况的假设,所以主句应用would。
  76.cookers改为cooks。厨师是cook,而不cooker。cooker指炊具,与后面的"gardener(园丁)and other workers"不一致,所以应改为厨师(cook)。
  77.when改为while。此处不是表示时间上的同时性,而是表示两种情形的对比,"一些人在做……,而另一些人在做……"。表示对比的连词一般用while。
  78.去掉more。inferior本身就表示"低级的",已经构成了比较形式,所以前面一般不能再加more。
  79.competent 改为incompetent。此句讲的是穷人所能享受的服务,过期的面包、报废的汽车,还有不合格的医生和律师所提供的建议。如果是competent,则成了合格的医生和律师所提供的建议,那么与整句意思不符。
  80.去掉in。此句中的which引导非限定性定语从句,作influence和change的直接宾语,因为influence和change均为及物动词,所以不能加in。
  Part Ⅴ
  How to Deal with Personal Crisis
  Since different person may come across different crisis, it is difficult to answer why personal crisis will happen and what leads to the situation. It depends. But the main origins and causes can be concluded in the following three aspects: lack of strong mind and personal incompetence to overcome difficulty, disadvantageous surroundings, and bad luck. Only when one person does well in all these three aspects, can he or she avoid personal crisis.
  But anyway, All is not lost that is in danger. Every cloud has a silver lining. One will surely come out from the crisis if he masters the right methods. At first, he should envisage the crisis with the right eye. And then, he should be strongly-minded and be perseverant all the time. Thirdly, he should try his best to improve relation with his boss, colleagues, partners, friends, and his family members in order to get a better surrounding. At last, he should try to grasp every chance to make progress. In this way, the crisis can be transferred to success.
