Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage:
Washington Irving was America' s first man of letters to be known internationally. His works were received enthusiastically both in England and in the United States. He was, in fact, one of the most successful writers of his time in the country, and at the same time winning the admiration of fellow writers like Scott in Britain and Poe and Hawthorne in the United States. ( 76 ) The respect in which he was held partly owing to the man himself, with his warm friendliness, his good sense,his urbanity, his gay spirits, his artistic integrity, his love of both the Old World and the New.
Thackeray described Irving as "a gentleman, who, though himself born in no very high sphere,was most finished, polished, witty; socially the equal of the most refined Europeans. " ( 77 ) In England he was granted an honorary degree from Oxford--an unusual honor for a citizen of a young, uncultured nation--and he received the medal of the Royal Society of Literature. America made him ambassador to Spain.

Passage 2(成人高考更多完整资料免费提供加 微信/QQ：29838818)
Questions 6 to l0 are based on the following passage:
Traditionally, universities have carried out two main activities: research and teaching. Many experts would argue that both these activities play a critical role in serving the community. The fun-damental question, however, is how does the community want or need to be served?
In recent years universities have been coming under increasing pressure from both the govern-ments and the public to ensure that they do not remain "ivory towers (象牙塔)" of study separated from the realities of everyday life. University teachers have been encouraged, and in some cases constrained (强迫), to provide more courses which produce graduates with the technical skills re-quired for the commercial use. (78) If Aristotle wanted to work in a university/in the UK today, he would have a good chance of teaching computer science but would not be so readily employable as
A post-industrial society requires large numbers of computer programmers, engineers, manag-ers and technicians to maintain and develop its economic growth but "man", as the Bible says,“does not live by bread alone. " (79) Apart from requiring medical and social services, which do not directly contribute to economic growth, the society should also value and enjoy literature, mu-sic and the arts. Because they can also promote economic growth. A successful musical play, for instance, can contribute as much to the Gross National Product through tourist dollars as any other

D. it is advisable for today' s philosophers to know computer science

Part IReading Comprehension
5．B推理判断题。第一段倒数第二句提到a young，uncultured nation是指当时的美国，可见当时的美国在英国人和欧洲人眼中是个年轻而又落后的国家，所以英国人没有料到在美国会出现如此优秀的作家。
PartⅡVocabulary and Structure
16．B本题考查条件状语从句关联词的用法。lest“以免”引导目的状语从句，可以先排除。only if和except that虽然引导条件状语从句，但是必须放置句首。所以只能选A。句意为：你听不见我说什么，除非你停止说话。
17．B本题考查动词短语。keep on doin9“继续”；keep up“保持”；keep to“遵循”；keep out“使在外面”。句意为：他一直工作到70岁。
18．B本题考查固定搭配。in the end“最后”，相当于finally，at last；in conclusion“总之”，一般用于结束语。句意为：这部小说结尾很愉快，这对年轻人最后结婚了。
21．B本题考查动词辨析。notice“注意到”；pay attention to“注意”，是指集中精力注意某事；know“认识”；realize“认识到”。句意为：他不知道我在他的办公室里。他太忙了，以至于没注意到我。
29．D本题考查词义辨析。be likely that…“可能…”；alike“相同的，相似的”；like“喜欢”。句意为：这种情况不可能持续太久。
30．A本题考查固定搭配。insist on“坚持，坚决要求”；persist in“坚持，固执于”；affmn“断言，确认，肯定”；protest against“抗议，反对，对…表示不满”。句意为：我坚持要见经理，因为宾馆的服务太糟了。
33．B本题考查动词短语。set fire“纵火，放火”；catch fire“(自行)着火”。句意为：你知道是谁给那家百货公司放火的吗?

50．A介词用法错误，应改为At the beginning。at the beginning“在开始时”，是固定搭配。
52．B句型错误，应改为returning。remember to do表示“记住要做某事”；remember doing表示“记得做过某事”。这里出现了时间状语last Wednesday，说明retum这个动作已经发生过了，因此用现在分词形式。
53．D主谓一致错误，应改为it is moving。因为主句的主语是passengers，而moving的主语是bus，所以不能省略。
56．C tell sb．sth．“告诉某人某事”。say后面接说的话；speak接语言，如speak English／Chi—nese；talk(with／to)“谈论”。因此答案为C。

My Ideal Job
People with different personalities, backgrounds and interests will have different opinions on what an ideal job is. To choose an ideal job and prepare for it is a long way for everybody.
For me, my ideal job position would be in arts management. I' m quite interested in music but I'd like to broaden my perspective a bit. I would like to work in a company concerning arts and having wide room for my development, i envision working in the city, but probably in a city that has lots of green and open spaces. I need to be able to reach the mountains in a couple of hours, so I think that the suburbs of Beijing are suitable. I would like to be professional at work. I believe my colleagues will be dedicated to their jobs and love the musical and artistic world.
Now I am a sophomore majoring in music. I' ve received professional training of music, so I feel confident that after graduation I could manage and work with all of the different instrumental-ists and vocalists.
