Directions:For each blank in the following passage,there are four choices marked A，B，C and D.Choose the one that is most suitable and mark your answer by blackening the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.
Drawing a picture is the simplest way of putting an idea down on paper.That is 21 men first began to write six thousand years ago or 22.The alphabet we now use 23 down to us over a long period of time.It was developed from the picture-writing of ancient Egypt.
Picture-writing was useful in many 24.It could be used to express ideas as well as 25.For example,a drawing of a 26 meant the object“man”.27 a drawing of a man lying on the ground with a spear in him meant“28”.
Besides the Egyptians,the Chinese 29 the American Indians also developed ways 30 writing in pictures.But only 31 much could be said this way.Thousands of pictures would have been needed 32 express all the ideas that people might have.It would have taken many thousand more to express all the objects 33 to men.No one could 34 so many pictures in a lifetime.Nor could anyone learn the meaning of all 35 drawings in a lifetime.
C词义辨析题。in many ways的意思是“在许多方面”，符合题意。
D理解推断题。从后面唿应的meant the object“man”可知，此处应该填man。
A语法结构题。两个并列主语(the Chinese及the American Indians)之间应用连词and。
D语法结构题。在way的后面要用to do sth.或of doing sth.,此处空格后面用的是writing,故用of。
C理解推断题。only not much用在一起不符合语言习惯，且逻辑上不通。only very much逻辑上不通，因为very much指“很多”，前面再加上only(仅仅，只有)意思上就讲不通。如果说only too much那意味着象形文字能表达的内容太多了，与文意不符，故用so much，意思是指象形文字能够表达的只有这么多。
A理解推断题。后面已有介词to，故不能再选介词in或with。不能说be called to sb.，因此也不能选C。known to sb.的意思是“为……所知道”。
Ⅳ.Reading Comprehension(60 points)
Directions:There are five reading passages in this part.Each passage is followed by four questions.For each question there are four suggested answers marked A，B，C and D.Choose the best answer and blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.
We can make mistakes at any age.Some mistakes we make are about money.But most mistakes are about people.“Did Jerry really care when I broke up with Helen?”“When I got that great job,did Jim really feel good about it,as a friend?Or did he envy my luck?”When we look back,doubts like these can make us feel bad.But when we look back,it’s too late.
Why do we go wrong about our friends or our enemies?Sometimes what people say hides their real meaning.And if we don’t really listen closely we miss the feeling behind the words.Suppose someone tells you,“You’re a lucky dog.”That’s being friendly.But“lucky dog”?There’s a bit of envy in those words.Maybe he doesn’t see it himself.But bringing in the“dog”puts you down a little.What he may be saying is that he doesn’t think you deserve your luck.
“Just think of all the things you have to be thankful for”is another noise that says one thing and means another.It could mean that the speaker is trying to get you to see your problem as part of your life as a whole.But is he?Wrapped up in this phrase is the thought that your problem isn’t important.It’s telling you to think of all the starving people in the world when you haven’t got a date for Saturday night.
How can you tell the real meaning behind someone’s words?One way is to take a good look at the person talking.Do his words fit the way he looks?Does what he says agree with the tone of voice?His posture?The look in his eyes?Stop and think.The minute you spend thinking about the real meaning of what people say to you may save another mistake.
