Part II Reading Comprehension (40 points)
Directions: There are 4 passages in this part. Each of the passages is followed by 5 questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are 4 choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the best one and mark your answer on the ANSWER SHEET with a single line through the center.
Ask a mom if she's happier now that she has a child, and she'll usually say yes. But psychologists who study happiness often report a different picture. Being the mom of a young child (especially one under 3) is rewarding, but also a real strain on your mood. "Moment to moment, you may be tired and sometimes angry, though kids do bring joy" says Peter Ubel, M.D., a professor of medicine and psychology at the University of Michigan. In fact, on their list of enjoyable activities, moms rank childcare lower than eating, exercising, or watching TV, according to a University of Michigan study, and kid care rates only slightly higher than housework, working, or commuting!
One reason for the difference between moms and experts: selective memory. When psychologists ask moms in a general way if they like spending time with their kids, the overwhelming majority say they do because they're thinking of fun activities like reading a book or playing in the park. When they're specifically asked to describe their actual daily routine, they remember the hours they spent struggling to get their child dressed or ready for bed.
Maybe, though, the psychologists are missing the intensity of joy that time spent with your child can bring. Luckily, those moments can overcome your daily frustrations. "Happiness is more than just that smiley feeling," says Karen Reivich, Ph.D., a research associate in the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania. "It's also feeling a connection to something larger than yourself. When people are in service to something bigger, they describe their lives as filled with meaning."
16. Which of the following best summarizes Peter Ubel’s opinion of being the mom of a young child?
A. It makes the mom exhausted.
B. It is both rewarding and stressful.
C. It makes the mom easily irritated.
D. It is quite frustrating an experience.
17. According to a University of Michigan study, which of the following ranks higher than childcare on moms’ list of enjoyable activities?
A. eating, housework or commuting
B. eating, exercising or watching TV
C. exercising, housework or watching TV
D. exercising, commuting or watching TV
18. What does the underlined phrase selective memory in the third paragraph mean?
A. Moms often tend to remember only the happy moments with their children.
B. Moms often tend to remember only the hours they spent taking care of their children.
C. Experts tend to remember only the happy moments the moms spend with their children.
D. Experts tend to remember only the hours the moms spend with their children.
19. According to Karen Reivich, how do the moms’ moments of intense joy compare with their daily frustrations?
A. Those moments make them feel more excited.
B. Those moments make them feel more relaxed.
C. Those moments can overcome their daily frustrations.
D. Those moments can do nothing about their daily frustrations.
20. From the last sentence of the passage we can infer that__________.
A. Moms have only the smiley feeling about childcare.
B. Moms feel frustrated at taking care of their children.
C. Moms enjoy doing housework as a part of their childcare.
D. Moms regard childcare as a meaningful part of their lives.
Do you go to bed without brushing your teeth? You may think that not brushing is not a big deal. But caring for your mouth can prevent serious (and even embarrassing) problems.
Cavities happen to just about everyone. A cavity is a diseased spot in the tooth. It all starts with a sticky film made up of bacteria. That film coats your teeth and gums. The bacteria eat sugars from things you eat and drink. That produces acids. Then, the acids eat away at your teeth's hard outer coating, called enamel.
If you don't brush regularly to remove the film, or if you keep missing a spot, those acids keep eating away the teeth's enamel. That is how you get a cavity. "The larger it gets, the closer it gets to the nerve, increasing the chance of severe pain," says Lynn Ramer, president of the American Dentists' Association.
A cavity will never just go away by itself. It will only get worse. "Left untreated, 100 percent of the time a cavity will spread," says Dr. William Berlocher, a dentist who is also president of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
If a cavity is caught early enough, your dentist will be able to fix your tooth. The area of the tooth where the cavity was will be replaced with a special material called a filling. Some fillings are made of a metal blend containing silver. Other fillings are a tooth-colored mix of glass and a strong material called resin.
If you ignore a cavity, it will spread. It can go into the tooth's root. At that point, the dentist will have to do a root canal. In that procedure, the dentist removes the tooth's nerve.
21. According to the second paragraph, what is a cavity?
A. a diseased spot in the tooth
B. a film of acids coating the teeth
C. a sticky film made up of bacteria
D. a hard outer coating covering the teeth
22. What would happen if you do not brush regularly?
A. The film coating your teeth would be removed.
B. There would be less diseased spots in your teeth.
C. The film coating your teeth would be less sticky.
D. The acids would keep eating away your teeth’s hard outer coating.
16. 23. If a cavity
reaches the tooth’s root, how would a dentist treat it?
A. Replace the cavity with a filling
B. Replace the tooth’s enamel
C. Remove the tooth’s nerve
D. Pull out the tooth
24. According to the fifth paragraph, what are some fillings made of?
A. a mix of silver and resin
B. a metal blend containing glass
C. a metal blend containing copper
D. a mix of glass and resin
25. The main purpose of the passage is to __________.
A. explain the formation and treatment of cavity
B. emphasize the importance of brushing teeth
C. discuss the proper ways of brushing teeth
D. describe how a dentist treats a cavity
Small talk is like having loose change in your pocket. Like quarters for a pay phone, loose change comes in handy when you least expect it. But when it comes to small talk, you must know when to spend it or save it.
All small talk is not the same. With some people, you walk away having killed a few moments. With others, you feel a connection and want to get to know them better. The difference is the effort one or both of you made at making a connection. It helps to call the person by name, mention things you have in common (mutual acquaintances, places you've been, experiences you've shared, career or personal goals), show interest in that person's views or hobbies, and match the other person's speaking style, voice, emotion and body language as you talk.
People feel being related to others who like them, appreciate them, enjoy the same things they do and are helpful to them. Time and attention make connections that last.
When you're considering small talk, be sensitive to the other person's mood and circumstances. When your airplane seatmate is obviously preoccupied, leave him or her alone. Neither would you approach someone when the person is dashing down a hallway to a meeting. On other occasions, small talk is inappropriate because of the person involved. If the CEO has unexpectedly called you in for "a little chat," this is not the time to take the lead. Let him or her dictate the topic and pace. The same is true with customers. Develop a sixth sense about those who appreciate small talk and those who don't.
26. What is the meaning of the underlined phrase comes in handy in the first paragraph?
A. becomes very useful
B. becomes very special
C. becomes very important
D. becomes very inconvenient
27. According to the second paragraph, how can you make a connection with others？
A. mention your unique experiences
B. describe others’ dressing styles
C. talk about others’ hobbies
D. discuss others’ names
28. If you want to make others’ feel related to you, you may need to__________.
A. spend time chatting with them
B. show how excellent you are
C. give presents to them
D. be helpful to them
29. According to the fourth paragraph, on what occasion should you avoid making small talk with others?
A. when others are strolling on the street
B. when your airplane seatmate asks you for a favor
C. when your airplane seatmate is absorbed in thought
D. when others are walking down the hallway after a meeting
30. According to the last paragraph, what should you do when your CEO has unexpectedly called you in for “a little chat”?
A. let the CEO dictate the topic and pace
B. talk about the difficulties in your work
C. take the lead to make small talk
D. decide on the topic of talk
A biological clock is what tells plants, animals, and other organisms how to organize their time. This ‘clock’ helps plants and animals change their routine when they move to places with different climates and environments. Most biological clocks are based on the movement of the sun and follow a twenty-four hour cycle called a circadian rhythm. Some animals sleep only at night, making them diurnal. Animals that sleep during daytime are nocturnal. Flowers are diurnal because they close their petals at night but they open again in the morning. Bats sleep in the daytime so they are nocturnal.
Some biological clocks also follow an annual cycle, especially in animals that have annual migrations. Animals that have annual cycles do different things at different times of year. Their actions are determined by the seasons.
Different animals can live in the same area when their biological clocks make them look for food at different times of day. This process also keeps them out of each other's way. Biological clocks help plants and animals prepare for changes in the seasons. Animals need to know what time of year to reproduce so their offspring will be born when the conditions for survival are good.
Human beings' sleep cycle is a circadian rhythm, a system based on the twenty-four hour day. In the circadian rhythm most humans sleep at night. When people travel to different time zones their biological clocks have to adjust. In humans, the biological clock is in a group of cells called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN.) The SCN is located near the bottom middle part of the brain.
Scientists are continuing to research the biological clock and circadian rhythms. Scientists discovered the first circadian gene in a mammal (a mouse) in 1997. It is only a matter of time before your own biological clock will tell YOU the time!
31. Which of the following type of animal or plant is nocturnal?
A. human beings B. flowers C. bats D. cows
32. What is a circadian rhythm?
A. a twenty-four hour cycle of most biological blocks
B. the closure and opening of the petals of flowers
C. a cycle of some animals’ annual migration
D. the movement rhythm of the sun
33. According to the
third paragraph, why can different animals live in the same area peacefully?
A. Because they look for different types of food.
B. Because their conditions for survival are good.
C. Because they do different things at different times of year.
D. Because their biological clocks keep them out of each other’s way.
34. Where is the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) located?
A. the bottom middle part of the brain
B. the bottom left part of the brain
C. the top right part of the brain
D. the top left part of the brain
35. From the last sentence of the passage we can infer that __________.
A. We still lack a full understanding of our own biological clock.
B. Our own biological clock is a lot different from that of a mouse.
C. We have already known much about the circadian rhythms of mammals.
D. There is still a lot to be done before your own biological clock will tell you the time.

Modern technology has enabled people to enjoy better life than before. Meanwhile, people have an increasing demand of energy to satisfy their daily needs, such as lighting and transportation, etc.
Natural resources are limited, and with the endless demand from human beings, the amount of the resources will decrease rapidly.
We need to cultivate energy-saving habits. On the one hand, we should turn off the computer monitor every time after we shut it down. The monitor, if left on, still consumes electricity even though the computer connected to it has been turned off. On the other hand, we should choose public transportation whenever it is appropriate. Travelling by subway and bus will save much more energy than driving a car. (120 words)
