ⅢReading Comprehension ( 30 points,2 points for each item )
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.
I began teaching at the James School twenty-two years ago when I was
twenty-six. In those days the place was very different. But time changes, and of
course educational theory changes, too. Methods and materials change. Even the
classroom looks different. Twenty years ago, our classroom was a lot less
pleasant. Very old-fashioned. We had fewer windows, for example. There were five
rows of desks, six desks in a row. Since everything was nailed to the floor, a
student sat in the same place all day long. Oh, we had to be very strict. Now
students move all over the room. They go to different areas for different
subjects, and they write at these movable desks. The students are more mobile,
and because they're more mobile, they're less restless, and because they're less
restless, they are more attentive. At least that's the theoryAnd as a matter of
fact, we really don't have many behavior problems here.
We use a modified open classroom system here at the James. I'll try to
explain what that means. Each student makes a work contract with his teacher.
Basically, he agrees to a certain amount of work on a certain project. He hands
the work in when he gets it done. He works at his own speed and plans his own
time. If he is particularly motivated in one subject-math, for instance-he can
explore the subject more thoroughly than the others. But he must also complete
his contract in arts or reading or social science. Freedom within a structured
system: that's what we are trying to offer.

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.
A breakthrough in the provision of energy from the sun for the European
Economic Community(EEC)could be brought forward by up to two decades, if a
modest increase could be provided in the EEC's research effort in this field,
according to the senior EEC scientists engaged in experiments in solar energy at
EEC's scientific laboratories at Ispra, near Milan.
The senior West German scientist in charge of the Community's solar energy
programme, Mr.Joachim Gretz, told journalists that at present levels of research
spending it was most unlikely that solar energy would provide as much as three
percent of the Community's energy requirements even after the year 2,000.But he
said that with a modest increase in the present sums devoted by the EEC to this
work it was possible that the breakthrough could be achieved by the end of the

A.advanced technology and learned scientists
B.more experiments and advertisement

scientists to provide .【 】
A.less than 3% of the EEC's needs before the year 2000

C.a little more than 3% of the EEC's needs after the year 2000

C.the scientists' hard work is the deciding factor for the success of the
D.a breakthrough in the research needs not only the effort of the
scientists but also necessary research spending.
Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.
A long-range health study in Framingham, Massachusetts, which began in 1948
and continues to this day, involves checking the survivors among the same 5,200
men and women every two years and carefully deterring the causes of any deaths
occurring in the group. A rather surprising conclusion that emerged in 1980 was
that the lightest men had the shortest life expectancy, while the only others
for whom weight seemed to have a significant negative effect on life expectancy
were those who weighed more than 25% above the national average. Much the same
was true of women, with those in the lightest and heaviest groups dying
earliest. These results certainly cast considerable doubts on the validity of
the "Ideal Weights"tables in use since the forties which recommend weight to
height ratios well below the national average. Indeed, they suggest that if any
such ideal exists, it is slightly above the average, whatever fashion may
31.The best title for this passage would be . 【 】

It is obvious that television has both advantages and disadvantages. In the
first place, television is not only a convenient source of pleasure, but also a
quite cheap one. For a family of four, for example, it is more convenient as
well as cheaper to sit comfortably at home, with so many interesting programmes
available, than to go out for something else. There is no transport to arrange.
They do not have to pay for expensive seats at the theatre, or the like, only to
discover, perhaps, that the show is disappointing. All they have to do is to
turn a knob, and they can see plays and shows of every kind, not to mention the
latest current events. Some people, however, maintain that this is just where
the danger lies. Those who watch television need do nothing. They are completely
passive and have everything presented to them without any effort on their
