  In a study of older people with sisters andbrothers, psychologist
Debra Gold of the Duke Center for the study of aging andhuman
development found that about 20% said they were hostile or indifferent
toward their sisters and brothers. Reasons for this ranged from
inheritancedisputes to hostility between spouses. But, many of those who
had poorrelationships felt guilty. Although most people admitted to some
lingeringrivalry, it was rarely strong enough to end the relationship.
Only four out ofthe 54 people interviewed had completely broken with
their sisters and brothersand only one of the four felt comfortable with
the break. As sisters andbrothers advanced into old age, closeness
increases and rivalry diminishes,explains VC, a psychologist at Purdue
University. Most of the elderly people heinterviewed said they had
supportive and friendly dealings and got along wellor very well with
their sisters and brothers. Only 4% got along poorly. Goldfound that as
people age, they often become more involved with and interestedin their
sisters and brothers. 53% of those she interviewed said that contactwith
their sisters and brothers increase innate adulthood. With family
andcareer obligations reduced, many said that they had more time for
each other.Others said that they felted with time to heal wounds. A man
who had recentlyreconciled with his brother told Gold there’s something
that lets older people to put asidebad deeds of the past and focus a
little on what we need now, especially whenit’s sistersand brothers。

  16. What does the study by Debra Gold find about older people?

  M: You know, I’ve learned a lot from the project. I’m surprised that
was still in business。

  17. What has probably caused closeness to increase among sisters and
brothersaccording to VC?

  W: That’s because we have a wonderful sales manager ——you!

  18. What did the man who had recently reconciled with his brother
tell DebraGold about older people?

  M: Thanks. But that’s not the problem at all. Lisa, our little
company, and it is little compared to the giants in the city. Our little
company’s in danger. We are out of date.We need to expand. If we don’t,
we will be swallowed up by one of the giants。

  Passage two

  Questions 23-25 are based on the conversation you have just

  Monarch butterflies, the large origin blackinsects, are common
summer sights in northern United States and Canada. Theybrighten in
parks and gardens as they fly among the flowers. What makes
monarchbutterflies particularly interesting is they migrate, all the way
to Californiaor Mexico in back. They are thought to be the only insect
that does this. Everyyear in the late summer, monarch begin their
migration to the south, thoseheading for Mexico go first for the
Louisiana Mississippi region. And then theyfly to go across Mexico into
Texas. Once in Mexico, they establish themselvesin one of about 15 sizes
in the mountain forth. Each side provides the winterhome for millions of
monarchs. The butterflies are so numerous that they oftencover the
entire trees. When spring comes, they began their long journey north.The
question is often asked whether every butterfly makes the round
tripjourney every year. And the answer is no. The average monarch lives
about ninemonth. So when fly the north, they might lay eggs in Louisiana
and die. Theeggs of that following generation may be found in Kentucky,
the eggs of nextgeneration may be in the Kang Michigan. The last
generation of the season aboutthe forth may make the journey back in
Mexico and restart the cycle. Scientistslearn about the monarch
butterflies’ migration by capturing and placing theidentifying tags in
the insects. By recapturing the attempt of the monarch andnoting where
they came from, the next scientist can figure out things likebutterfly’s
age andits routing

  Passage 1

  Passage three

  Questions 26 to 29 are based on the passage you have just
heard。

  People nowadays seem to have the sense thattheir time has become
more limited. Compared with early generations we spendmore and more time
working and have less and less free time to engage inleisure pursues.
But this premise turns out to be an illusion. the mostcomprehensive data
from major Time Use Service suggests, if anything, Americanstoday have
more free time than the early generations. The number of hours wework
has not changed much, but we spend less time now on home tasks. So we
havea great amount of time for leisure than in decades past. so why do
we feel liketime so scare. One problem is that time becomes more
valuable and time becomesmore worth money. we feel like we have less of
it. workers who bill or get paidby the hour, think employer and
fast-food workers, report focusing more onpursuing more money than those
who get paid by salary and the fact has beenfast. In one experiment,
people were told to play the role of consultant andbill their time by
either nine dollars an hour or ninety dollars an hour. Whenpeople billed
their time by ninety dollars an hour they report feeling far morepriced
for time. Thinking about our time as money, changes are our behavior
aswell. in one study, people who were instructed to think about money
beforeentering a cafe spent less times chatting with the other patrons
and more timeworking. Those who are thinking their time did reverse
spending time socializinginstead of working。

  Farmington, Utah, is a more pleasant community since a local girls’
4-H club improved Main Street. Six 4-H girls worked to clean the 72 foot
curbside that was covered with weeds, rocks and trash. Each member
volunteered to clean up and to dig in plot, five flats of flowers. They
also took terms in watering, weeding and maintaining the plot.
Participation in this project helped the girls developed a new attitude
towards their parents of their own homes; they’ve learned how to work
with tools, and improve their work habits. One mother said that before
her daughter was involved in this project, she would not even pour a
weed. The experience on Main Street stimulated self-improvement, and
encouraged members to take pride in their home grounds and the total
community. City officials cooperated with the 4-H members in planting
trees, building cooking facilities, pick-me tables, swings and public
rest rooms. The 4-H girls planted trees and took care of them during the
early stages of growth. The total park project needed more plantings in
the following years. Members of the 4-H club agreed to follow the
project through to completion, because they receive satisfaction from
the results of constructive work. The project is a growing one and is
spread from the park to the school and the shopping center. Trees and
flowers have all been planted in the shopping center, making the
atmosphere pleasant。

  The first copy right law in the United Stateswas passed by congress
in 1790. In 1976, congress enacted the latest copy rightlaw, taking into
consideration the technological developments that had occurredsince the
passage of the copy right act of 1909. For example, in 1909 anyonewho
wanted to make a single copy of a literary work for personal use had to
doso by hand. The very process imposed a limitation on the quantity of
materials copied.Today, a photo copier can do the work in seconds. The
limitation hasdisappeared. The 1909 Law did not provide full protection
for films and soundrecordings nor did it anticipate the need to protect
radio and television. As aresult, violations of the law and abuses of
the intent of the law have lessenedthe financial rewards of authors,
artists and producers. The 1976 copy rightact has not prevented these
abuses fully, but it has clarified the legal rightsof the injured
parties and given them an avenue for remedy. Since 1976 the acthas been
amended to include computer software and guidelines have been adoptedfor
fair use of television broadcasts. These changes have cleared up much
ofthe confusion and conflict that followed in the wake of 1976
legislation. Thefine points of the law are decided by the courts and by
acceptable commonpractice overtime. As these decisions and agreements
are made, we modify ourbehavior accordingly. For now, we need to
interpret the law and its guidelinesas accurately as we can and to act
in a fair manner。

  Question 30 to 32 are based on the passage you have just heard。

 

  Passage 2

  According to a survey on reading conducted in 2001 by the U.S.
National Education Association (NEA), young Americans say reading is
important, more important than computers and science. Over 50% of the 12
to 18 years old interviewed say they enjoy reading a lot. 79% find it
stimulating and interesting. And 87% think it is relaxing. About 68% of
those surveyed disagreed with the opinion that reading is boring or
old-fashioned。

  Over half teenagers interviewed said they read more than ten books a
year. The results also show that middle school students read more books
than high schoolers. Over 66% of teens like to read fiction, such as
novels and stories. Over 26% are interested in non-fiction, such history
books.64% of students listed reading stories about people my own age.
That’s a favorite topic. Mysteries and detective stories came second on
the list at 53%. Just under 50% said they were interested in reading
about their own culture in tradition. Of the teenagers who participated
in the survey, 49% said that libraries are where they get most of their
books. However, many complain that their school libraries do not have
enough up-to-date interesting books and magazines. Even though many
teenagers in the US enjoy reading, they still have other interests. When
asked which activity would be the most difficult to give up for a week,
48% said listening to music. TV would be difficult to give up for 25% of
those surveyed。

  Questions 33-35 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  Passage 3

  Thank you for coming, everyone. Today’s presentation will show how
we see the development of the motor car in the short to medium term, and
that is why we have invited all of you here today. Let’s start with
power. It’s clear that petrol-driven engines have no future. Already
there are many alternative fuel vehicles on the market, powered by
anything from solar power to natural gas. Some independent thinkers have
even produced cars that run on vegetable oil. But as we all know, of all
these alternative fuel vehicles, the most practical are electric
vehicles. Sure, in the past electric vehicles have their problems,
namely, a limited driving range, and very few recharging points, which
limited their use. Now, however, recent developments in electric vehicle
technology mean they can match conventional petrol engines in terms of
performance and safety. Let’s not forget that electric vehicles are
cleaner. Plus, importantly, the power source is rechargeable, so this
does not involve using any valuable resources. Moving on to
communications, very soon, cars will be linked to GPS satellites, so
they’ll do all the driving for you. What controls remain for the users
will be audio-based, so, for example, you’ll just have to say “a bit
warmer”, and the air conditioning will adjust automatically. You’ll
also be able to receive email, music and movies, all via an internet
link. So just type in the destination you want, sit back, sleep, watch
your movie, whatever。

  Questions 33-35 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  33. What is the presentation mainly about?

  34. What used to restrict the use of electric vehicles?

  35. What does the speaker say about electric vehicles of today?
