  Part II Reading Comprehension (Skimming andScanning)

  Part III Listening Comprehension


  M: Shawn's been trying for months to find a job.But I wonder how he could get a job when he lookslike that.

  W: Oh, that poor guy! He really should shavehimself every other day at least and put onsomething clean.

  Q: What do we learn about Shawn?

  答案:A. He is careless about his appearance.

  解析:男生首先对肖恩能否找到工作表示怀疑,因为他邋遢。女生接着提到肖恩不修边幅,又说他应该每隔一天刮一次胡子,把自己弄得整洁干净一点。由此可知,肖恩是一个对仪容仪表不太注重,比较粗线条的人shave,刮胡子;be careless about不在乎,不介意;


  W: I wish Jane would call when she know she'll be late. This is not the first time we've hadto wait for her.

  M: I agree. But she does have to drive through very heavy traffic to get here.

  Q: What does the man imply?

  答案:A. Jane maybe caught in a traffic jam.


  男生又说:“I agree. But she does have to drive through very heavy traffic to get here.”(我同意。但是她到这里的确要遭受很拥堵的交通。)由此得出,男生对此事的态度是理解或宽容的。Jane可能被堵在半路了。


  M: Congratulations! I heard your baseball team is going to the Middle AtlanticChampionship.

  W: Yeah, we're all working real hard right now!

  Q: What is the woman's team doing?

  答案:A. Training for the Mid-Atlantic Championship.

  解析:对话开头男生提到女生所在的棒球队要参加Mid-Atlantic Championship.女生说:“we're allworking real hard right now!”(我们现在正紧锣密鼓地练习呢!)由此可知,女生所在的棒球队正在进行赛前训练。

  此题还有一个迷惑选项B, Making preparations for a trans-Atlantic trip,必须注意的是:这里并不是准备旅行,而是准备参赛。


  W: John's been looking after his mother in the hospital. She was injured in a car accidenttwo weeks ago and still in critical condition.

  M: Oh, that's terrible. And you know his father passed away last year.

  Q: What do we learn about John?

  答案:D. He has been having a hard time.

  解析:根据听力原文可知,“John's mother is in the hospital and his father died last year.”(约翰的母亲出车祸住院了,父亲两年前也过世了)由此可见,John的近况还是蛮悲惨的;答案也就显而易见了。


  M: What a boring speaker! I can hardly stay awake.

  W: Well, I don't know. In fact, I think it's been a long time since I've heard anyone is good.

  Q: What do we learn from the conversation?

  答案:D The woman thinks highly of the speaker

  解析:根据听力原文可知,男生觉得演讲无趣,女生却很淡定地说:“其实我已经很久没有听到那么好的发言了”。由此可见,女生对发言还是很肯定的。选项D中“thinks highly of”即“对…评价高”,故D是正确答案。


  W: I'm having a lot of trouble with logic and it seems my professor can't explain it in a waythat makes sense to me.

  M: You know, there is a tutoring service on campus. I was about to drop statistics beforethey helped me out.

  Q: What does the man mean?

  W: Oh, that wasn't me. That was my sister Jill. She's in your class.

  答案:C. Jill wore the overcoat last week.

  解析:首先男生问女生上周是否穿过拉风外套,然后女生说:“ That was my sister Jill. She's in yourclass.”(那是我姐姐Jill,她和你同班)也就是说男生很有可能看到的那个穿着拉风外套的人是女生的姐姐Jill。


  M: Jane, suppose you lost all your money while taking a vacation overseas, what would youdo?

  W: Well, I guess I'd sell my watch or computer or do some odd jobs till I could afford areturn plane ticket.

  Q: What are the speakers talking about?

  答案:B. An imaginary situation.

  解析:根据原文录音可知,对话开头男生讲到:“Jane, suppose you lost all your money whiletaking a vacation overseas, what would you do? ”这里的"suppose"表明“假定、料想”由此可见,两人谈论的是一个虚拟场景。

  Conversation One


  M: Hello, professor Johnson.

  W: Hello, Tony. So what shall we work on today?

  M: Well, the problem is that this writing assignment isn't coming out right. What I thoughtI was writing on was to talk about what particular sport means to me when I participate in,

  W: What sport did you choose?

  M: I decided to write about cross-country skiing.

  W: What are you going to say about skiing?

  M: That's the problem. I thought I would write about how peaceful it is to be out in thecountry.

  W: So why is that a problem?

  M: As I start describing how quiet it is to be out in the woods. I keep mentioning how mucheffort it takes to keep going. Cross-country skiing isn't as easy as some people think. It takes alot of energy, but that's not part of my paper. So I guess I should leave it out. But now I don'tknow how to explain that feeling of peacefulness without explaining how hard you have towork for it. It all fits together. It's not like just sitting down somewhere and watching the cloudsroll by. That's different.

  W: Then you'll have to include that in your point. The peacefulness of cross-country skiingis the kind you earn by effort. Why leave that out? Part of your point you knew before hand butpart you discovered as you wrote. That's common, right?

  M: Yeah, I guess so.

  Q19: What is the topic of the man's writing assignment?

  C) Pain and pleasure in sports

  Q20: What problem does the man have while working on his paper?

  D) He can't decide whether to include the effort part of skiing.

  Q21: What does the woman say is common in writing papers?

  A) New ideas come up as you write.

  19. D) A sport he participates in

  解析:题目问的是,男生论文的主题是什么,从talk about what particular sport means to mewhen I participate in一句中,可得对应选项D。C选项是一个干扰项,pain and pleasure in sports, 意为运动中的痛苦与快乐,其中sports一词范围太大,对话中只谈到了cross-country skiing, 因此,C选项错。

  20. D) He can't decide whether to include the effort part of skiing.

  解析:当男生打算将越野滑雪的艰辛剔除出论文时,教授说了一句“Then you'll have to include that inyour point.”对应选项D

  21. A) New ideas come up as you write.

  解析:在对话的最后,教授提到“Part of your point you knew before hand but part youdiscovered as you wrote. That's common, right?”这句话意思是说,在写论文之前,论点的一部分我们已经有了,但另一部分在写的过程中才会发现,因此,对应选项A。A选项与D选项较易混淆,但从教授的话中,我们可以看出,不是论点发生变化,而是在写作过程中,会有新的想法产生。



  Conversation Two

  W: Good evening and welcome to this week's Business World.

  It program for and about business people. Tonight we have Mr. Angeleno who came to theUS six years ago, and is now an established businessman with three restaurants in town.Tellus Mr. Angeleno, how did you get started?

  B) He and his wife did everything by themselves.

  25 What does the man say contribute to his success?

  24. B) He advertises a lot on radio and in newspapers.

  解析:从But I advertise a lot on radio and in local newspapers. 一句中,可以得到对应选项。

  25. B) The restaurant atomsphere

  解析:题目问的是,什么有助于餐厅的成功?对话中提到,I always serve the freshest possible foodand I make the atmosphere as comfortable and as pleasant as I can, so that my customers willwant to come back. 可见,Angeleno会提供尽可能新鲜的食物和舒适的用餐环境以吸引顾客,因此,对应选项B,也许,有童鞋会问,为什么不选C?注意,C选项是指各种各样的食物,与文意中“新鲜的食物”不符,是错误选项。


  Section B

  Passage One

  There are many commonly held beliefs about eye glasses and eyesight that are not provenfacts. For instance, some people believe that wearing glasses too soon weakens the eyes. Butthere is no evidence to show that the structure of eyes is changed by wearing glasses at ayoung age. Wearing the wrong glasses, however, can prove harmful. Studies show that foradults there is no danger, but children can develop loss of vision if they have glassesinappropriate for their eyes.

  We have all heard some of the common myths about how eyesight gets bad. Most peoplebelieve that reading in dim light causes poor eyesight, but that is untrue. Too little light makesthe eyes work harder, so they do get tired and strained. Eyestrain also results from reading alot, reading in bed, and watching too much television. However, although eyestrain may causesome pain or headaches, it does not permanently damage eyesight.

  Another myth about eyes is that they can be replaced, or transferred from one person toanother. There are close to one million nerve fibres that connect the eyeball to the brain, as ofyet it is impossible to attach them all in a new person. Only certain parts of the eye can bereplaced. But if we keep clearing up the myths and learning more about the eyes, some day afull transplant may be possible.

  Questions 26 to 28 are based on the passage you have just heard.

  26. What does the speaker want to tell us about eyesight?

  答案:C)There are many false notions about it.

  解析:从"eyesight" 可以把答案定位于第一段,关键词有"weakens the eyes" "loss of vision". 注意题目中是问speaker要告诉我们的,所以不要被some people believe...误导,看清题目要问什么很重要。容易混淆的是A选项,文中提到如果孩子戴不合适的眼镜会使孩子的视力减弱,但并没有提到孩子经常忽视保护视力。B、D选项文中没有提及,可以排除。

  27. What do studies about wearing the wrong glasses show?

  答案:C)It can lead to the loss of vision in children.

  解析:本题关键词是"studies" "wearing the wrong glasses". 文章中作者很明显地给出了"Studiesshow that for adults..." 因此了解这个后面的内容,做出本题难度不大。文中说到 "for adults there is nodanger" ,因此排除B选项。"there is no evidence... the structure of eyes is changed" "it does notpermanently damage eyesight"可以排除D选项,注意如果漏听了no,很可能就会选错。A选项前文没有提及,可以排除。

  28.What do we learn about eye transplanting from the talk?

  答案:D)It can only be partly accomplished now.

  解析:本题关键词"eye transplanting",迅速定位于听力后面部分。A、B、C选项文中没有提及,排除。文章最后部分"Only certain parts of the eye can be replaced" "Only certain parts of the eyecan be replaced"可以推断出答案是D选项。

  Passage Two

  When people care for an elderly relative, they often do not use available communityservices such as adult daycare centers. If the caregivers are adult children, they are more likelyto use such services, especially because they often have jobs and other responsibilities. Incontrast, a spouse usually the wife, is much less likely to use support services or to put thedependent person in a nursing home. Social workers discover that the wife normally tries totake care of her husband herself for as long as she can in order not to use up their life savings.Researchers have found that caring for the elderly can be a very positive experience. The elderlyappreciated the care and attention they received. They were affectionate and cooperative.However, even when caregiving is satisfying, it is hard work. Social workers and experts onaging offer caregivers and potential caregivers help when arranging for the care of an elderlyrelative. One consideration is to ask parents what they want before they become sick ordependent. Perhaps they prefer going into a nursing home and can select one in advance. Onthe other hand, they may want to live with their adult children. Caregivers must also learn tostate their needs and opinions clearly and ask for help from others especially brothers andsisters. Brothers and sisters are often willing to help, but they may not know what to do

  Questions 29 to 32 are based on the passage you have just heard.

  29. Why are adult children more likely to use community services to help care for elderlyparents?

  答案:D)They have jobs and other commitments.

  解析:细节题。本题询问原因,文章开头很快就给出了本题答案"because they often have jobs andother responsibilities." 注意D选项中的commitments的意思是 “承诺,保证;承担义务”和responsibilities意思相近。这也是四级考试中常见的选项设置,用同义词或近义词替换掉文中的词汇。这要求考试在备考时,重点词汇及其同义词反义词都要有所了解。其他选项文中没有提及,可排除。

  30. Why are most wives unwilling to put their dependent husbands into nursing homes?

  答案:A) They don't want to use up all their life savings.

  解析:细节题。关键词"wives"" husbands"。本题不难,文章中已经直接给出答案" in order not touse up their life savings"。

  31. According to the passage, what must caregivers learn to do?

  31. According to the passage, what must caregivers learn to do?

  答案:C)Be frank and seek help from others.

  解析:关键词"caregivers""learn to do",问看护人应该要学会做的事情,然后迅速定位于最后部分,"One consideration is to ask...","Caregivers must also learn to state..." 主要有两件事情,C选项是其中一个,另外一个选项中没有,排除A、B和D选项。

  Passage Three

  Since a union representative visited our company to inform us about our rights andprotections. My coworkers have been worrying about health conditions and complaining aboutsafety hazards in the workplace. Several of the employees in the computer department, forexample, claim to be developing vision problems from having to stare at a video displayterminal for about 7 hours a day. The supervisor of the laboratory is beginning to getheadaches and dizzy spells because she says it's dangerous to breathe some of the chemicalsmoke there. An X-rays technician is refusing to do her job until the firm agrees to replace itsout-dated equipment. She insists that it's exposing workers to unnecessarily high doses ofradiation. She thinks that she may have to contact the Occupational Safety and HealthAdministration and asked that government agency to inspect the department. I've heard thatat a factory in the area two pregnant women who were working with paint requested a transferto a safer department, because they wanted to prevent damage to their unborn babies. Thesupervisor of personnel refused the request. In another firm the workers were constantlycomplaining about the malfunctioning heating system, but the owners was too busy or toomean to do anything about it. Finally, they all met an agree to wear ski-clothing to work thenext day. The owner was too embarrassed to talk to his employees. But he had the heatingsystem replaced right away.

  Questions 32- 35 are based on the passage you have just heard.

  32 What does the talk focus on?

  A) Health and safety conditions in workplace.


  33 What did the X-ray technician ask her company to do?

  Replace its out-dated equipments.

  答案:A)Replace its out-dated equipments.


  34 What does the speaker say about the two pregnant women working with paint?

  A) They requested to transfer to a safer department.

  答案:A) They requested to transfer to a safer department.


  35 Why did the workers in the firm wear ski-clothing to work?

  C) To protest against the poor working conditions.

  答案:C)To protest against the poor working conditions.

  解析:推理题。本题容易误选D选项。因为是heating system出了故障。但通过下文"tooembarrassed""had the heating system replaced right away" 从老板的反应及采取的措施可以推断出,员工们穿滑雪服地原因其实为对差的工作环境向老板提出抗议。

  Section C Compound Dictation

  Contrary to the old warning that time waits for no one, time slows down when you are onthe move. It also slows down more as you move faster, which means astronauts(宇航员)some day may survive so long in space that they would return to an earth of the distantfuture. If you could move at the speed of light, your time would stand still, if you could movefaster than light, your time would move backward.

  Although no form of matter yet discovered, moves as fast as or faster than light, scientificexperiments has already confirmed that accelerated motion causes a traveler's time to bestretched. Albert Einstein predicted this in 1905, when he introduced the concept of relativetime as part of his special theory of relativity. A search is now under way to confirm thesuspected existence of particles of matter that move at a speed greater than light, andtherefore, might serve as our passports to the past. An obsession with time - saving, gaining,wasting, losing and mastering it - seems to have been a part of humanity for as long ashuman have existed. Humanity also has been obsessed with trying to capture the meaning oftime. Einstein used a definition of time for experimental purposes, as that which is measuredby a clock. Thus time and time's relativity are measurable by any hour glass, alarm clock, oratomic clock that can measure a billionth of a second.


  36. survive


  37. distant

  解析:这个空在future 前面,所以预判该填形容词常用搭配无非near,close, distant等 ,根据听力原文,如上所述,确定是遥远的未来;填distant。

  38. backward


  39. discovered


  40. scientific


  41. motion



  42. predicted


  43. introduced


  44. that move at a speed greater than light, and therefore, might serve as our passports tothe past.


  45. seems to have been a part of humanity for as long as human have existed.


  46. used a definition of time for experimental purposes, as that which is measured by aclock.

  Section A

  47 N tend

  48 L negative

  49 H efficiently

  50 B associated

  51 A alert

  52 J function/

  53 F definitely

  54 O younger

  55 E continuing

  56 G different


  47. tend to 固定搭配;表示“倾向于;”符合句意;

  48. 空格后是effect, 前面是a(n), 由此可见,该处需要填入一个形容词;题目给出的形容词有negative, sufficient, younger;根据前后语意,填入negative最为恰当,表示“少的睡眠时间对大脑的活动有负面的影响。”

  49. 根据推测,该处应该填入一个副词,题目给出的副词有efficiently, definitely, formally;前面提到,老年人在睡觉的时候更容易被打断,而后面用while提出一个对比的概念,年轻人相比起来能获得更_______ 的睡眠;综合起来,选用efficiently(最有效率的)最为准确。

  50. be associated with 固定搭配;表示“与…联系在一起”;本句话表示“更多的睡眠通常都与健康度联系在一起”;

  51. 先看整句话的含义,“如果他们能睡更长的时间,他们的感觉应该会更好以及…”那么,该处应该填入一个褒义词,选择alert比较恰当,表示“更加警觉,机灵”;

  52. 根据判断,此处应该填入一个动词,剩下的动词有cling, function;整句话的意思是“当我们上了年纪的时候,我们一觉睡到天亮的能力下降了,但是,我们需要…的睡眠量并没有改变;”空格后的单词是well,cling 在这里并不合适,一般与to连用;选用function 最为适合;

  53. 作者在首段已经提出这个观点是一个myth,那么显而易见最后一段中出现的myth是作为一种强调手段,应填入definitely;

  54. 空格的前面是 when they were…, “当他们年轻的时候”;应填入younger;

  55. 本句的意思是“我们的数据显示老年人将从…获益;”空格的后面是“得到和他们在三十多岁的时候能得到的睡眠一样多”;根据上下文意思,该处应填入“continuing”;

  56. different from 固定搭配;表示“和…不同”;


  Passage One

  57. What can we learn from some recentstudies?

  答案:D. Interracial lodging may have diverseoutcomes.

  关键词:recent studies, but also

  定位:题干中some recent studies提示答案定位在第一段第一句话。

  解析:问题提问从最近的研究中我们可以了解到什么?第一段第一句中Several recent studies found that…与题干对应,由此可知that后的就是recent studies的内容,即being randomly assigned to a roommate of another race can lead to increased tolerance butalso to a greater likelihood of conflict。其中“being randomly assigned to a roommate ofanother race”对应了选项D中的“interracial lodging”,“can… but also…”说明了interracial lodging是有利有弊的。因此D选项符合文意。而C选项“弊大于利”不符合文意, A“不同种族学生之间的争执是不可避免的”选项与B“不同种族的学生相互存在偏见”原文中没有明确提及

  58. What does Sam Boakye's remark mean?

  答案:D. Being surrounded by white peers motivates a black student to work harder tosucceed.

  关键词:surrounded, something to prove

  定位:题干中出现的人名Sam Boakye提示答案定位在第四段第一句话。

  解析:问题提问Sam Boakye的话是什么意思?通过定位可以找到Sam Boakye的那段话,即if you'resurrounded by whites, you have something to prove. 这句话前面的插入语-the only black studenton his freshman year floor- 介绍了Sam Boakye作为黑人学生的背景,帮助我们理解之前那句话:如果你的周围都是白人,那么一定会去证明些什么,言下之意就是选项D“白人同伴的存在会激励黑人学生更加努力地去取得成功”。而选项A, B, C在文中没有明确提及。本题选项C有个干扰信息“the freshman year”,在原文中出现。某些考生看到这个词,不假思索就选择了这个选项,但没有搞懂原文的意思,导致错误选择。请考生留意。

  59. What does the Indian University study show?

  答案:A. Interracial roommates are more likely to fall out.

  关键词:Indian University, more likely,

  定位:题干中出现的机构名称Indian University提示答案定位在第七段第一句话。

  解析:问题提问Indian University的研究显示了什么?通过定位可以发现研究结果显示Interracialroommate were three times as likely as two white roommates to no longer live together,与选项A中的more likely to fall out 对应,因此选择D。此处,fall out 应该理解为“散伙,分开”有些考生可能因为不理解意思而产生歧义,请考生留意。

  60. What does Alec Webley consider to be the “definition of integration”?

  答案:D. The school randomly assigns roommates without regard to race.

  关键词:Alec Webley, definition of integration

  定位:题干出现的人名Alec Webley提示答案定位在第十段第一句。

  解析:通过定位找到人名,人名后出现“This is the definition of integration”,由“this”可知人名前就是我们要找的答案,即the process throws you together randomly,“throw you togetherrandomly”与“randomly assign”对应。意思与选项D符合。因此,此处选择D。

  61. What does Grace Kao say about interracial lodging?

  答案:A. It is unscientific to make generalizations about it without further study.

  关键词:Grace Kao, generalizations

  定位:题干中出现的人名Grace Kao以及generalizations提示答案定位在文章最后一段。根据最后一段意思:要得出Interracial lodging的一般规律,需要对学生的背景特征有更多的研究,与选项D的意思相同。而选项ABC在文中没有明确提及。

  Passage Two

  本篇文章主要是围绕一份来自Global Humanitarian Forum的报告展开的,在解题之前,通过对5个题干的浏览,以及在原文中的定位,可以发现,这篇文章是严格按照顺序原则来的。每一个题干中都有大写的字母,这些首字母大写的单词既是关键词,也是定位词,可以有效地帮助我们到原文中准确定位,节省答题时间。

  62. What is the finding of the Global Humanitarian Forum?

  答案:B. Rates of death from illnesses have risen due to global warming.

  关键词:Global Humanitarian Forum


  解析:一般而言,四级的阅读题目大致遵循顺序原则,此篇文章正好是遵循此规律的。在文章的第一段,第一行,我们看到“… 300,000 deaths and about $ 125 billion …”,根据这里,我们可以把答案锁定在选项A(economic)和选项B (Rates of death),然后我们接着往下看,可以发现,第二段就没有再提到金钱方面了,而都是在讲死亡和疾病的话题,如第二段的第三行“… death rates from illnesses … ”。所以,最后正确的选项是B。

  63. What do we learn about the Forum's report from the passage?

  答案:A. It was challenged by some climate and risk experts.

  关键词:learn 、Forum's report


  解析:根据顺序原则,我们在接下来的第三段里就找到了63题的答案。第三段的第一行就讲到“thereport drew criticism from some experts on climate and risk”,这和A选项是完全相一致的,challenged是criticism的同义替换。B选项中的“interest”表示“兴趣”,主要用于好的事物,这里讲的都是对the Forum's repor的批评,显然就不合适了。C选项表达的意思跟原文正好相反,这个是肯定要排除的。然后,有的同学可能会选到D选项,可能是受到文中第四段“… primarily in poor countries ,were beingseriously effected …”这句话的影响。但是D选项中“a big stir”“一阵巨大的骚乱”文中是完全没有提到的。

  64. What does Dr. Pielke say about the Forum's report?

  答案:B. It is invalid in terms of methodology.

  关键词:Dr. Pielke、say


  解析:在第五段,我们可以很快找到Pielke,然后找到他说的话,第二行“the Forum's report was ‘amethodological embarrassment'”,然后在第六行“but the report, he said‘will harm the … it is sodeeply flawed'”。根据这两句话,选项中invalid 是flawed的同义替换, 我们可以很容易地选到B。

  65. What is Soren Andreasen's view of the report?
