Directions: There are 3 passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfin-ished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D.You should de-cide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.
Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage :
On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln went to Gettysburg in Pennsylvania to speak at the National Soldiers Cemetery. The Civil War was still going on. There was much criticism of Presi-dent Lincoln at the time. He was not at all popular. He had been invited to speak at Gettysburg on-ly out of politeness. The principal speaker was to be Edward Everett, a famous statesman and speaker of the day. Everett was a handsome man and very popular everywhere.
It is said that Lincoln prepared his speech on the train while going to Gettysburg. Late that night, alone in his hotel room and tired out, he again worked briefly on the speech. The next day Everett spoke first. He spoke for an hour and 57 minutes. His speech was a perfect example of the rich oratory of the day. Then Lincoln rose. The crowd of 15,000 people at first paid little attention to him. He spoke for only nine minutes. At the end there was little applause. Lincoln turned to a friend and remarked,"I have failed again". On the train back to Washington, he said sadly, "That speech was a fiat failure, and the people are disappointed".
Some newspapers at first criticized the speech, but little by little as people redid the speech they began to understand better. (76) They began to appreciate its simplicity and its deep mean-ing. It was a speech which only Abraham Lincoln could have made.

Passage 2(成人高考更多完整资料免费提供加 微信/QQ：29838818)
Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage:
(77) In what now seems like the prehistoric times of computer history, the early post-war era( 站后时期 ), there was a quite widespread concern that computers would take over the world from man one day. Already today, less than forty years later, as computers are relieving us of more and more of the routine tasks in business and in our personal lives, we are facing with a less dramatic but also less foreseen problem. People tend to be over-trusting (过分信任) of computers and are re-luctant to challenge their authority. Indeed, they behave as if they were hardly aware that wrong buttons may be pushed, or that a computer may simply malfunction(失灵).
(78) Obviously, there would be no point in investing (投入) in a computer if you had to check all its answers, but people should also rely on their own internal computers and check the machine when they have the feeling that something has gone wrong. Questioning and routine double checks must continue to be as much a part of good business as they were in pre-computer days.
Maybe each computer should come with the following warning: for all the help this computer may provide, it should not be seen as a substitute for fundamental thinking and reasoning skills.
6. What is the main purpose of this passage?
A. To look back to the early days of computers.
B. To explain what technical problems may occur with computers.
C. To discourage unnecessary investment in computers.
D. To warn against the blindness to the probable shortcomings of computers.
7. The passage recommends those dealing with computers to__________.
A. be reasonably doubtful about them
B. check all their answers
C. substitute them for basic thinking
D. use them for business purpose only
8. An "internal computer" ( Para. 2 ) is__________.
A. a computer used exclusively by one company for its own problems
B. a person’s store of knowledge and the ability to process it
C. the most up to date in home computer a company can buy
D. a computer from the post-war era which is very reliable
9. The passage suggests that the present day problem with regard to computers is __________.
10. It can be inferred from the passage that the author would disapprove of__________.
A. computer science courses in high schools
B. businessmen and women who use pocket calculators
C. maintenance(连续不断) checks on computers
D. companies which depend entirely on computers
Questions 11 to 15 are based on the following passage:
To swim across the English Channel takes at least nine hours. It' s a hard work and it makes you short of breath. To fly over the Channel takes only twenty minutes ( as long as you' re not held up at the airport), but it' s an expensive way to travel. You can travel by hovercraft if you don' t mind the noise, and that takes forty minutes. Otherwise you can go by boat, if you forget your sea-sickness ills. All these means of transport have their problems and the weary( 不耐烦的)travel-er often dreams of being able to drive to France in his own car. "Not possible", you say. Well,wait a minute. People are once again considering the idea of a Channel tunnel or bridge.
This time, the Greater London Council is looking into the possibility of building a Channel link straight to London. (79) A bridge would cost far more than a tunnel, but you would be able to go by rail or by car on a bridge, whereas a tunnel would provide a rail link only.
Why is this idea being discussed again? Is Britain becoming more conscious of the need for links with Europe as a result of joining the EEC( 欧共体) ? Well, perhaps. The main reason,though, is that a tunnel or bridge would reach the twenty square kilometers of London' s disused dockland(船坞地) ~ A link from London to the continent would stimulate trade and re-vitalize(使…重新有活力) the port, and would make London a main trading center in Europe. (80)With a link over the Channel, you could buy your fish and chips in England, and be able to eat them in France while they were still warm!
11. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
A. Swimming across the Channel takes less than four hours.
B. The idea of a Channel tunnel or bridge is a very new one.
C. It is considered to be more difficult to swim across the channel than any other means.
D. A tunnel or bridge would only reach as far as the coast.
12. A tunnel would be__________.
A. less expensive to be built than a bridge
B. more expensive to be built than a bridge
C. less expensive to be built than a rail
D. more expensive to be built than a rail
13. If they built a Channel tunnel, you would__________.
A. neither take a train nor go by car
B. only take a train
C. either take a train or go by car
D. only take a bus
14. It can be concluded that many of London' s dockyards are__________.
A. not used
B. seriously blocked
C. fully used
D. opened again
15. Channel link would__________.
A. allow us to buy fish and chips in France
B. make the journey from Europe to England dangerous but easier and faster
C. decrease more trade for London' s dockyards
D. make London more prosperous again

27．C本题考查倒装的用法。“so+助动词／情态动词+主语”用在肯定句中，表示前者的情况也同样适用于后者，通常翻泽成“…也是”。如：l’m doing my homework，SO is he．我在做作业，他也是。句意为：我们的社会变了，人们也变了。
28．B本题考查倒装的用法。当as表示“虽然，尽管”引导让步状语从句的时候，其所在分句往往用倒装，将表语前置。though也可这样用。如：Clever as／though he was，he failedin the exam．尽管他聪明，考试却没及格。句意为：尽管他还年轻，却知道什么是正确的事情。

46．B语态错误，应改为proves。prove(to be)sth．／adj．／that…“被证明…”，本身包含被动的意思，所以通常不用be proved。
47．A单复数错误，应改为three-field。“数词+名词”构成的合成形容词中，名词要用单数。如：all 80-year-—old man。
48．C定语从句引导词错误，应改为in which或that或省略引导词。当way表示“方式”，后接定语从句的时候，引导词有三种：in which，that或省略。
50．D虚拟语气用法错误，应改为(should)be respected。在it is necessary／important that…(做…是必要的／重要的)句型中，要用虚拟语气，其构成是should+动词原形，should可省。
56．D by means of“通过…的方式／手段”，固定搭配。
57．A protect sb．against sth．“保护某人免受…的伤害”，固定搭配。从下文“protection against fire”也可以看出。
58．A a big／large／small sum of money“一大笔／小笔钱”。人们上保险的钱对于保险公司来说，是很小的数目，所以选A。
59．B pay money to sb．“向某人付钱”，固定搭配。
60．C四个选项都可修饰可数名词。few“几乎没有”，表示否定；quite a few“相当多”；a few“少数几个”；many“许多”。因为文中出现了only，就说明“有”，但“不多”，所以选C。
61．A out of“从…当中，出于”，如six out of ten(十分之六)。该句意思是“保险公司从收到的保险金里拿出一部分支付给这些家庭。”
62．D form“形成，组建”；recognize“认识到，认出，识别出”；found“建立”，但可惜的是该词是原形，没有用过去分词，与原句中的“was”构成被动语态；而come into being“产生”没有被动语态。
66．B suggest“建议，提出”；insist(on doing)／that…“坚持做认为…”；advise“劝告，忠告”；want“想要”。联系上下文，B符合题意。
69．D another“又一，再一”，修饰名词单数。前面有了一项火灾保险，又制定了一项新的保险应用another来表示。0ther往往修饰复数名词，表示“其他的”；the other往往和one相搭配，表示“一个…，另一个…”；0thers则表示“其他人，其他物”，是复数，后不能再跟名词。
70．A Hfe insurance“人身保险”。
73．C benefit from“从…中受益”；hear from“收到某人来信”；pay和offer都是及物动词，不与from连用。该句意思是“人们从许多种类的保险中受益。”
74．A such as“诸如，像”，固定搭配，表列举。
75．C some“某一个”，表不确指，后跟单数名词。也可说a certain。该句意思是几乎每个人都上了某种保险。

A Friend to Remember
Sophia was one of my best friends in college. She was a tall girl with big eyes and short hair.
Her family was poor because her father died when she was still a child. In spite of this, she was very optimistic and never lost heart. She struck people as a strong-minded and self-confident girl.
And that was why I admired her a lot. One of her favorite quotations was "tomorrow is another day" and she always encouraged herself with Scarlett' s spirit when she was faced with difficulties.
We had a lot in common. We both liked singing, reading and shopping. Singing songs to-gether with her was a lot of fun. I enjoyed my college life very much with her company. Now she is working in another city, and we hardly have any chance to see each other. However, she will al-ways be my best friend.
