  Directions: There are three passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. You should decide on the best choice and blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.
  Passage 1
  Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passage:
      The reflective towers of New York City, which is on the Atlantic migrating(迁徙的)route , can be deadly for birds. We live in an age of glass, said Ms.Laurel, an architect.76)“It can be a perfect mirror in certain lights, and the larger the glass, the more dangerous it is.” About 90,000 birds are killed by flying into building in the city each year. Often, they strike the lower levels of glass towers after searching for food in nearby parks. Such crashes are the second-leading cause of death for migrating birds, after habitat(栖息地)loss, with an estimated number of death ranging up to a billion a year.
  (77As glass office and apartment towers have increased in the last decade, so, too, have calls to make them less deadly to birds. San Francisco adopted bird-safety standard for new building in July. The United States Green Building Council, a nonprofit industry group that encourages the creation of environmentally conscious buildings, will introduce a bird-safety credit this as part of its environmental certification process.
  There are no easy fixes, however. A few researchers are exploring glass designs that use ultraviolet(紫外线的)signals, but they are still in their infancy. Covers, dot patterns, shades and net are the main options available.
  Often, only one section of a building needs to be changed. You don't necessarily have to treat every window, Ms.Laurel said. It would be too expensive to do the whole building. The Jacob Convention Center, which has been undergoing alterations, is the most recent building to voluntarily correct the problem of bird crashes. The architects used less reflective glass and dot patterns.
  1. What is the main idea of the passage?
  A. New York is a city of glass towers.
  B. Glass tower are dangerous for migrating birds.
  C. New York adopted new safety standards for buildings.
  D. Glass towers are a new trend in the United States.
  2. What is the number one cause of death for migrating birds?
  A. Climate change             B. Habitat loss
  C. Lack of food               D. Crashing into buildings.
  3. What does the word fixes in the third paragraph probably mean?
  A. Choices                    B. Explanations
  C. Solutions                   D. Developments
  4. _____are used in the alteration of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
  A. Dot patterns                 B. Shades
  C. Nets                       D. Covers
  5. Which of the fowling statements is TRUE according to the passage?
  A. In many cases, the whole building needs to be altered to prevent bird crashes.
  B. The Jacob K.Javits Convention Center is the first building to deal with the problem of bird crashes.
  C. About 90,000 birds are killed due to habitat loss in New York City each year.
D. Unfortunately, glass designs that use ultraviolet signals are still in their early stages.
  Passage 2
  Question 6 to 10 are based on the fowling passage:
         Today's students have grown up hearing more about Bill Gates than F.D.R., and they live in a world where amazing innovations(革新)are common. The current 18-year-olds, after all, were 8 when Google was founded by two students at Stanford; Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook in 2004 while he was Harvard and they were entering high school. Having grown up digital(数字的),they are impatient to get on with life.
         The easiest way to find kids like these is to check in on entrepreneurship(企业家才能)education, in which colleges and universities try to prepare their students to recognize opportunities and seize them.
         A report published last year by the Kauffman Foundation, which finances programs to promote innovation on campuses, noted that more than 50,000 entrepreneurship programs are offered on two-and four-year campusesup from just 250 courses in 1985. Lesa Mitchell , a Kauffman vice president, says that the foundation is extending the reach of its academic influence, which used to be found only in business schools. Now, the concept of entrepreneurship is blooming in engineering programs and medical school, and even in the liberal arts. “Our interest is the programs,” she says. “We need to spread out from the business school.”
         Either as class projects or on their own, students in a variety of majors are coming up with ideas, writing business plans and seeing them through to prototype and, often, market. In their spare time, students in agricultural economics at Purdue invent new uses for bean; industrial design majors at Syracuse, in a special laboratory, create wearable technologies.
      78The entrepreneurship movement has its critics, especially among those who see college as a time for extensive academic exploration. I just don't think that entrepreneurship  ranks so high in terms of national need, says Daniel S.Greenberg, author of Science for sale: The perils, Rewards and Delusions of Campus Capitalism.
         Leonard A.Schlesinger, Babson College's president, says that the question of whether innovation can really be taught is “an age-old argument”.
  6. When Google and Facebook were established, the founders were still_____.
  A. in high school                    B. in the army
  C. in primary school                  D. at college
  7. According to the passage, what is the main purpose of entrepreneurship education?
  A. To prepare students for future academic life
  B. To prepare students to find opportunities and seize them.
  C. To prepare students for overseas career.
  D. To prepare student to develop interpersonal skills.
  8. The word prototype in the fourth paragraph is most likely to mean_____.
  A. model                           B. strategy
  C. method                          D. stage
  9. What does Daniel S.Grennberg think of entrepreneurship education?
  A. Entrepreneurship, or at least certain elements of it, can be taught.
     B. An entrepreneurship program can help students find what they really like and entrepreneurship isn't all about business.
  C. Entrepreneurship should be spread across different fields.
  D. Colleges shouldn't put too much emphasis on entrepreneurship programs.
  10. What is the main idea of the passage?
  A. Entrepreneurship courses in business schools.
  B. Qualities of an entrepreneur.
  C. Entrepreneurship education in colleges.
  D. Kids in the information age.
  Passage 3
  Question 11 to 15 are based on the following passage
         Regret is as common an emotion as love or fear, and it can be nearly as powerful. So, in a new paper, two researchers set about trying to find out what the typical American regrets most. In telephone surveys, Neal Rose, a psychologist and professor of marketing at the School of Management at Northwestern University, and Mike Morrison, a doctoral candidate in psychology at University of Illinois, asked 370 Americans, aged 19 to 103,to talk about their most notable regret .Participants were asked what the regret was, when it happened, whether it was a result of something they did or didn't do, and whether it was something that could still be fixed.
         The most commonly mentioned regret involved romance (浪漫的事)(18%)——lost loves or unfulfilled relationships. Family regrets came in second 16%),whit people still feeling badly about being unkind to their brothers or sisters in childhood. Other frequently reported regrets involved career (13%),education (12%)money10%and parenting9^%.
         Rose and Morrison's study, which is to be published in Social Psychological and Personality Science, is significant in that it surveyed a wide range of the American public, including people of all ages and socio-economic and educational backgrounds. Previous studies on regret have focused largely on college students, who predictably tend to have education-focused regrets, like wishing they had studied harder or a different major. The new survey shows that in the larger population, a person's “life circumstances—accomplishments, shortcomings, situation in life—inject considerable fuel into the fires of regret,” the authors write.
79People with less education, for instance were more likely to report education regret. People with higher levels of education had the most career regrets. And those with no romantic partner tended to hold regrets regarding love.
  Broken down(分解、细分)by sex, more women44% than men 19% had regrets about love and familynot surprising, since women value social relationships more than men, the authors write. In contrast ,men 34% were more likely than women 27% to mention work-related regrets, wishing they'd chosen a different career path, for instance ,or followed their passion.80Many participants also reported wishing they had worked less to spend more time with their children.
        There was an even split between regrets about inaction not doing something and action do something you wish you didn't. But, like previous studies, the current research found that some regrets are more likely than others to persist over time: people tend to hang on longer to the regret of inaction; meanwhile, regrets of action tend to be more recent.
  11. In the second paragraph, the author shows ______.
  A. the researchers' findings      B. the importance of family
  C. the importance of money     D. the importance of career
  12. According to the passage, college student participants mainly had regrets about their ______.
  A. family and childhood      B. study and major
  C. career and job            D. romance and fear
  13.The word notable in the first paragraph is closest in meaning to ______.
A. common                B. capable     
C. wonderful               D. remarkable
  14. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
  A. The less education he or she has, the more regrets she or he would have.
  B. The more education he or she has, the less regrets she or he would have.
  C. More women than men had regrets about love and family.
  D. The regret of action seems to last longer than that of inaction.
  15. What is the main idea of this passage?
  A. How regret is understood by a typical American.
  B .Common regrets is more important than love and hate.
  C. Why regret is more important than love and hate.
  D. How regret has shaped Americans.
