Section II Reading Comprehension
Part A 
Read the following four texts. Answer the questions below each text by choosing A, B, C or  D. Mark your answers on the ANSWER SHEET. (40 points) 
Text 1 
In  order to  “change lives for  the  better” and  reduce “dependency”, George Osborne, Chancellor of the  Exchequer, introduced the  “upfront work search” scheme. Only if the jobless arrive at the jobcentre with a CV, register for online job search, and start looking for work will they be eligible for benefit and then they should report weekly rather than fortnightly. What could be  more reasonable? More apparent reasonableness followed. There will  now be a  seven-day wait for the jobseeker’s allowance. “Those first few days should be spent looking for work, not  looking to  sign on,” he  claimed. “We’re doing these things because we know they help people stay off benefits and  help those on  benefits get  into work faster.” Help? Really? On first hearing, this  was the  socially concerned chancellor, trying to  change lives for  the  better, complete with “reforms” to  an  obviously indulgent system that demands too little effort from the newly unemployed to find work, and subsidises laziness. What motivated him, we  were to understand, was his zeal for  “fundamental fairness” protecting the taxpayer, controlling spending and ensuring that only the most deserving claimants received their benefits. Losing a job is hurting: you don’t skip down to the jobcentre with a song in  your heart, delighted at the prospect of doubling your income from the generous state. It is financially  terrifying, psychologically embarrassing and  you  know that  support is minimal and extraordinarily hard to get. You are  now not wanted; you are now excluded from the work environment that offers purpose and structure in your life. Worse, the crucial income to feed yourself and your family and pay  the bills has disappeared. Ask anyone newly unemployed what they want and the answer is always: a job. But in  Osborneland, your first instinct is  to  fall into dependency permanent dependency if you can get it   supported by a state only too ready to indulge your falsehood. It is  as  though 20  years of ever-tougher reforms of the job  search and benefit administration system never happened. The principle of  British welfare is  no  longer  that you  can  insure yourself against the  risk  of unemployment and receive unconditional payments if  the  disaster happens. Even the  very phrase “jobseeker’s allowance” is about redefining the unemployed as a  “jobseeker” who had no fundamental right to a benefit he or  she has earned through making national insurance contributions. Instead, the  claimant receives a  time-limited “allowance,” conditional on  actively seeking a  job; no entitlement and no insurance, at £71. 70 a week, one of the least generous in the EU. 

21. George Osborne’s scheme was intended to[A] encourage jobseekers’ active engagement in job seeking.[B] provide the unemployed with easier access to benefits.[C] guarantee jobseekers’ legitimate right to benefits.[D] motivate the unemployed to report voluntarily.
22. The phrase “to sign on” (Line 3, Para. 2) most probably means[A] to check on the availability of jobs at thejobcentre.[B] to accept the government’s restrictions on the allowance.[C] to register for an allowance from the government.[D] to attend a governmentaljob-trainingprogram.
23. What prompted the chancellor to develop his scheme?[A] A desire to secure a better life for all.[B] An eagerness to protect the unemployed.[C] An urge to    be generous to the claimants.[D] A passion to ensure fairness for taxpayers.
24. According to Paragraph 3, being unemployed makes one feel[A] uneasy.[B] insulted.[ C] enraged.[D] guilty.
25. To which of the following would the author most probably agree?[A] Unemployment benefits should not be made conditional.[B] The British welfare system indulges jobseekers’ laziness.[C] The jobseekers’ allowance has met their actual needs.[D] Osborne’s reforms will reduce the risk of unemployment.

All around the world, lawyers generate more hostility than the members of any  other profession with the  possible exception of journalism. But  there are few places where clients have more grounds for complaint than America. During the  decade before the  economic crisis, spending on  legal services in America grew twice as fast as inflation. The best lawyers made skyscrapers-full of money, tempting ever  more students to  pile  into law schools. But  most law graduates never get  a  big-firm job. Many of  them instead  become the  kind of nuisance-lawsuit filer that makes the tort system a costly nightmare. There are many reasons for this. One is the excessive costs of a legal education. There is just one path for a lawyer in most American states: a four-year undergraduate degree in some unrelated subject, then a three-year law degree at  one of 200 law schools authorized by the American Bar Association and an  expensive preparation for the bar exam. This leaves today’s average law-school graduate with $100,000 of debt on top of undergraduate debts. Law-school debt means that they have to work fearsomely hard. www.ienglishcn.comReforming the  system would help both lawyers and  their customers. Sensible ideas have been around for  a  long time, but  the  state-level bodies that  govern the profession have been too conservative to implement them. One idea is to allow people to study law as an undergraduate degree. Another is to let students sit for  the bar after only two years of law school. If the bar exam is truly a stem enough test for a would­be lawyer, those who can sit it earlier should be allowed to do so. Students who do not need the extra training could cut their debt mountain by a  third. The other reason why costs are  so  high is  the restrictive guild-like ownership structure of the business. Except in  the District of Columbia, non-lawyers may not own any  share of a  law  firm. This keeps fees high and innovation slow. There is pressure for change from within the profession, but opponents of change among the regulators insist that keeping outsiders out of a law firm isolates lawyers from the pressure to make money rather than serve clients ethically. In  fact, allowing non-lawyers to  own shares in  law  firms would reduce costs and improve services to  customers, by  encouraging law  firms to  use technology and to employ professional managers to focus on  improving firms’ efficiency. After all, other countries, such as Australia and Britain, have started liberalizing their legal professions. America should follow. 

26. A lot of students take up law as their profession due to[A] the growing demand from clients.[B] the increasing pressure of inflation.[C] the prospect of working in big firms.[D] the attraction of financial rewards.
27. Which of the following adds to the costs of legal education in most Americanstates?[A] Higher tuition fees for undergraduate studies.[B] Receiving training by professional associations.[C] Admissions approval from the bar association.[D] Pursuing a bachelor’s degree in another major.
28. Hindrance to the reform of the legal system originates from[A] the rigid bodies governing the profession.[B] lawyers’ and clients’ strongresistance.[C] the stem exam for would-be lawyers.[D] non-professionals’ sharp criticism.
29. The guild-like ownership structure is considered “restrictive” partly because it[A] prevents lawyers from gaining due profits.[B] bans outsiders’ involvement in the profession.[C] aggravates the ethical situation in the trade.[D] keeps lawyers from holding law-firm shares.
30. In this text, the author mainly discusses[A] the factors that help make a successful lawyer in America.[B] a problem in America’s legal profession and solutions toit.[C] the role of undergraduate studies in America’s legal education.[D] flawed ownership of America’s law firms and its causes.

The US$3-million Fundamental Physics Prize is  indeed an  interesting experiment, as Alexander Polyakov said when he accepted this year’s award in March. And it  is  far  from the  only one  of its  type. As  a  News Feature article in Nature discusses, a  string of lucrative awards for  researchers have joined the Nobel Prizes in recent years. Many, like the Fundamental Physics Prize, are  funded from the  telephone-number-sized bank accounts of  Internet entrepreneurs.These benefactors have succeeded in their chosen fields, they say, and they want to use their wealth to draw attention to those who have succeeded in science. What’s not to like? Quite a lot, according to a handful of scientists quoted m  the News Feature. You cannot buy class, as  the  old  saying goes, and  these upstart entrepreneurs cannot buy  their prizes the prestige of the Nobels. The new awards are an exercise in self-promotion for those behind them, say scientists. They could distort the achievement-based system of peer-review-led research. They could cement the status quo of peer-reviewed research. They do not fund peer-reviewed research. They perpetuate the myth of the lone genius. The goals of the prize-givers seem as scattered as the criticism. Some want to shock, others to draw people into science, or to  better  reward those who have made their careers in  research. As Nature has  pointed out  before, there are some legitimate concerns about how science prizes both new and old are distributed. The Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, launched this year, takes an  unrepresentative view of  what the life sciences include. But the Nobel Foundation’s limit of three recipients per  prize, each of whom must still be  living, has  long been outgrown by  the collaborative nature of modem research as  will be  demonstrated by  the inevitable row over who is ignored when it comes to acknowledging the discovery of the Higgs boson. The Nobels were, of course, themselves set  up by  a  very rich individual who had decided what he wanted to do with his  own money. Time, rather than intention, has given them legitimacy. As  much as  some scientists may complain about the  new awards, two  things seem clear. First, most researchers would accept such a  prize if  they were offered one. Second, it is surely a good thing that the money and attention come to science  rather than go  elsewhere. It is  fair to  criticize and question the mechanismthat is the culture of research, after all but it is the prize-givers’ money to do with as they please. It is wise to take such gifts with gratitude and grace. 

31. The Fundamental Physics Prize is seen as[A] a symbol of the entrepreneurs’ wealth.[B] a handsome reward for researchers.[C] a possible replacement of the Nobel Prizes.[D] an example of bankers’ investments.
32. The critics think that the new awards will most benefit[A] the profit-oriented scientists.[B] the achievement-based system.[C] the founders of the new awards.[D] peer-review-led research.
33. The discovery of the Higgs boson is a typical case which involves[A] legitimate concerns over the new prizes.[B] controversies over the recipients’ status.[C] the joint effort of modern researchers.[D] the demonstration of research findings.
34. According to Paragraph 4, which of the following is true of the Nobels?[A] History has never cast doubt on them.[B] Their endurance has done justice to them.[C] They are the most representative honor.[D] Their legitimacy has long been in dispute.
35. The author believes that the new awards are[A] unworthy of public attention.[B] subject to undesirable changes.[C] harmful to the culture ofresearch.[D] acceptable despite the criticism.

 “The Heart of the Matter,” the just-released report by the American Academy of Arts and  Sciences (AAAS), deserves praise for  affirming the  importance of the humanities and  social sciences to  the  prosperity and  security of liberal democracy in America. Regrettably, however, the report’s failure to address the true nature of the crisis facing liberal education may cause more harm than good. In  2010, leading congressional Democrats and  Republicans sent letters to  the AAAS asking that it identify actions that could be taken by “federal, state and local governments, universities, foundations, educators, individual benefactors and others” to “maintain national excellence in  humanities and social scientific scholarship and education.” In response, the American Academy formed the Commission on  the Humanities and  Social Sciences. Among the commission’s 51 members are top-tier-university presidents, scholars, lawyers, judges, and business executives, as well as prominent figures from diplomacy, filmmaking, music and journalism. The goals identified in  the report are generally  admirable.  Because representative government presupposes an  informed citizenry, the  report supports full  literacy; stresses the  study of history and  government, particularly American history and American government; and encourages the use of new digital technologies. To encourage innovation and competition, the  report calls for increased investment in research, the crafting of coherent curricula that improve students’ ability to solve problems and communicate effectively in  the  21 st century, increased funding for teachers and the encouragement of scholars to bring their learning to bear on the great challenges of the day. The report also advocates greater study of foreign languages, international affairs and the expansion of study abroad programs. Unfortunately, despite 2½  years in  the  making, “The Heart of  the Matter” never gets to the heart of the matter: the illiberal nature of liberal education at our leading colleges and  universities. The commission ignores that for  several decades America’s colleges and  universities have produced graduates who don’t know the content and character of liberal education and are thus deprived of its  benefits. Sadly, the spirit of inquiry once at home on campus has been replaced by the use of the humanities and  social sciences as  vehicles for  publicizing “progressive,” or  left­liberal propaganda. Today, professors  routinely treat the  progressive interpretation of history and progressive public policy as the proper subject of study while portraying conservative or  classical liberal ideas such as  free  markets and  self-reliance as  falling outside the boundaries of routine, and sometimes legitimate, intellectual investigation. The AAAS displays great enthusiasm for  liberal education. Yet its report may well set  back reform by  obscuring the  depth and  breadth of the  challenge  that Congress asked it to illuminate. 

36. According to Paragraph 1, what is the author’s attitude toward the AAAS’ s report?[A] Critical.[B] Appreciative.[C] Contemptuous.[D] Tolerant.
37. Influential figures in the Congress required that the AAAS report on how to[A] define the government’s role in education.[B] safeguard individuals’ rights to education.[C] retain people’s interest in liberal education.[D] keep a leading position in liberal education.
38. According to Paragraph 3, the report suggests[A] an exclusive study of American history.[B] a greater emphasis on theoretical subjects.[C] the application of emerging technologies.[D] funding for the study of foreign languages.
39. The author implies in Paragraph 5 that professors are[A] supportive of free markets.[B] conservative about public policy.[C] biased against classical liberal ideas.[D] cautious about intellectual investigation.
40. Which of the following would be the best title for the text?[A] Ways to Grasp “The Heart of the Matter”[B] Illiberal Education and “The Heart of the Matter”[C] The AAAS’s Contribution to Liberal Education[D] Progressive Policy vs. Liberal Education

 [A]  Some archaeological sites have always been easily observable for example,the  Parthenon in  Athens, Greece; the  pyramids of  Giza in  Egypt; and themegaliths of Stonehenge in  southern England. But these sites are  exceptionsto  the  norm. Most archaeological sites have been located by  means of carefulsearching, while many others have been discovered by accident. Olduvai Gorge,an early hominid site in Tanzania, was found by a butterfly hunter who literallyfell  into its  deep valley in  1911. Thousands of Aztec artifacts came to  lightduring the digging of the Mexico City subway in the 1970s.
[B]  In  another case, American archaeologists Rene Million and  George Cowgill spent years systematically mapping the entire city of  Teotihuacan in  the Valley of Mexico near what is now Mexico City. At its peak around AD 600, this  city  was  one of the  largest human settlements in   the world. The researchers mapped not only the city’s vast and ornate ceremonial areas, but also hundreds of simpler apartment complexes where common people lived. 
[C] How do  archaeologists know where to  find what they are  looking for whenthere is nothing visible on  the surface of  the ground? Typically, they surveyand sample (make test  excavations on)  large areas of  terrain to  determinewhere excavation will yield useful information. Surveys and  test samples havealso become important for  understanding the  larger landscapes that containarchaeological sites.
[D]  Surveys can  cover a  single large settlement or  entire landscapes. In  one  case, many researchers working around the  ancient Maya city  of Copan, Honduras, have located hundreds of small rural villages and individual dwellings by using aerial photographs and by  making surveys on  foot. The resulting settlement maps show how the distribution and  density of the rural population around the  city  changed dramatically between AD  500  and  850, when Copan collapsed.
[E]  To  find their sites, archaeologists today rely heavily on  systematic survey methods and a  variety of  high-technology tools and techniques. Airborne technologies, such as  different types of  radar and photographic equipment carried by airplanes or spacecraft, allow archaeologists to  learn about what lies beneath the ground without digging. Aerial surveys locate general areas of interest or larger buried features, such as ancient buildings or fields.
 [F]  Most archaeological sites, however, are discovered by  archaeologists who have set  out  to  look for  them. Such searches can take years. British archaeologist Howard Carter knew that the  tomb of  the  Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun existed from information found in  other sites. Carter sifted through rubble in the Valley of the  Kings for  seven years before he  located the  tomb in  1922. In  the  late  1800s British archaeologist Sir  Arthur Evans combed antique dealers’ stores in  Athens,  Greece. He  was searching for  tiny engraved seals attributed to  the  ancient Mycenaean culture that dominated Greece from the  1400s  to  1200s BC. Evans’s interpretations of   these engravings eventually led him to find the Minoan palace at Knossos (Knos6s ), on the island of Crete, in 1900. 
[G]  Ground surveys allow archaeologists to pinpoint the places where digs will be successful. Most ground surveys involve a  lot of walking, looking for  surface clues such as small fragments of pottery. They often include a  certain amount of digging to  test  for  buried materials at  selected points across a  landscape. Archaeologists also may locate buried remains by  using such technologies as ground radar, magnetic-field recording, and metal detectors. Archaeologists commonly use computers to map sites and the  landscapes around sites. Two­and three-dimensional maps are helpful tools in  planning excavations, illustrating how sites look, and presenting the  results of archaeological research.

Read the following text carefully and then translate the underlined segments into Chinese. Your translation should be  written neatly on  the  ANSWER SHEET. (10 points) Music means different things to   different people and sometimes even different things to the same person at different moments of his life. It might be  poetic, philosophical, sensual, or mathematical, but in any case it must, in my view, have something to do with the soul of the human being. Hence it is metaphysical; but the means of expression is  purely and  exclusively physical: sound. I  believe it  is precisely this permanent coexistence of  metaphysical message through  physical means that is the strength of music. ( 46) It is also the reason why when we try to describe music with words, all we can do is  articulate our reactions to it, and not grasp music itself. Beethoven’s importance in  music has been principally defined by  the revolutionary nature of his  compositions. He  freed music from hitherto prevailing conventions of harmony and structure. Sometimes I feel in his late works a will to break all signs of continuity. The music is abrupt and seemingly disconnected, as in the last piano sonata. In musical expression, he did not feel restrained by the weight of convention. ( 4 7) By all accounts he was a freethinking person, and a courageous one, and  I  find courage an  essential quality for  the  understanding, let  alone the performance, of his  works. This courageous attitude in  fact  becomes a  requirement for  the  performers of Beethoven’s music. His  compositions demand the  performer to  show courage, for example in the use of dynamics. (48) Beethoven’s habit of increasing the volume with an  extreme intensity and  then abruptly following it  with a  sudden soft passage was only rarely used by composers before him. Beethoven was a deeply political man in the broadest sense of the word. He  was not interested in daily politics, but  concerned with questions of  moral behavior and  the  larger questions of right and  wrong affecting the  entire society. ( 49) Especially significant was his view of freedom, which, for  him, was associatedwith the rights and responsibilities of the individual: he advocated freedom of thoughtand of personal expression.Beethoven’s music tends to  move from  chaos to  order as  if order  were an imperative of human existence. For him, order does not result from forgetting or ignoring the disorders that plague our existence; order is a necessary development, an improvement that  may lead to  the  Greek ideal of spiritual elevation. It  is  not  by chance that the Funeral March is not the last movement of the Eroica Symphony, but  the  second, so  that suffering does not  have the  last  word. (50) One could interpret much of the work of Beethoven by saying that suffering is inevitable, but the courage to fight it renders life worth living.
