When a consumer
(消费者) finds that something he or she bought is faulty
or in some other way does not live up to what the producer
says for it, the first step is to present the warranty(保单),or any other records that might help, at the store of buying. In most cases, this action will produce results. However, if it does not, there are various means the consumer
may use to gain satisfaction.
A simple and common method used by many consumer
s is to complain(投诉) directly to the store manager. In general, the "higher up" the consumer
takes his or her complaint, the faster he or she can expect it to be settled. In such a case, it is usually settled in the consumer
's favour, taking
it as true that he or she has a just right.
Consumers should complain in person whenever possible, but if they cannot get to
the place of buying, it is acceptable
to phone or write the complaint in a letter.
Complaining is usually most effective when it is done politely
but firmly, and especially when the consumer
can show clearly what is wrong with what was bought in question. If this cannot be done, the consumer
will succeed best by presenting specific
information as to what is wrong, rather than by making general statements. For example,"The left speaker does not work at all and the sound coming out of the right one is unclear" is better than "This stereo(立体音响) does not work.”.
The store manager may advise the consumer
to write to the producer
, if so, the consumer
should do this, stating the complaint as politely
and as firmly as possible. But if a polite complaint does not achieve the expected result, the consumer
can go a step further. He or she can threaten(恐吓) to take the seller
to court or report the seller
to a public organization responsible for protecting consumer
56. When a consumer
finds what he bought has a fault in it, he should first _____.
A. complain personally
to the manager
B. show something provable in written form to the store
C. threaten to take the matter to court
D. writer a firm letter of complaint to the store
57. If a consumer
wants a quick settlement of his problem, it's better to complain to ______
A. a shop assistant B. the producer
C. a public organization D. a store manager
58. The most effective complaint about what was bought can be made by ________.
A. showing the fault of it to the producer
firmly it is of poor quality
C. asking politely
to change it D. explaining exactly what is wrong with it
59. The passage tells us______.
A. how to make the complaint have a good effect
B. how to settle a consumer
C. how to avoid buying something wrong
D. how to deal with complaints from consumer
60. According to the passage, the last way a consumer
has to use is _______
A. to write to the producer
B. to quarrel with the manager
C.to warn the seller
that he or she will turn to the court or a consumer
s' organization for help
D. to collect several fighters to threaten the seller
Most painters discover a style of painting that is fit for them and stick to that, especially if people admire their pictures. But Picasso, the great Spanish painter, was like a man who had not yet found his own particular style of painting. He kept on struggling to find the perfect expression till his death in 1973.
Some of Picasso's painting are rich, soft colored and beautiful. Others are ugly and cruel and strange. But such paintings allow us to imagine things for ourselves. They force us to say to ourselves,“What does he see that makes him paint like that?” And we begin to look under the surface of the things we see..
Picasso painted thousands of pictures in different styles. Sometimes he painted the natural look of things. Sometimes he seemed to break them apart and throw the pieces in our faces. He showed us what the mind knows as well as what the eyes see. At the age of 90,he remained as curious about the world as he had been when he was young. That is why people have called him "the youngest painter in the world."

In 2001 the United Kingdom was hit again by foot-and-mouth disease, the first time since the 1960s, causing a national crisis
. However, much of the panic and confusion
was spread largely as a result of ignorance of the disease.
Foot-and-mouth is a highly contagious
(传染性的) disease found in Africa, South America, Asia, the Middle East and parts of Europe. It affects cloven-footed (偶蹄) domestic animals such as cows, pigs, sheep and goats, as well as wild animals like rats and deer and zoo animals such as elephants. Horses, however, cannot contract (感染) the disease.
It is very rare for humans to catch the disease. Indeed, only one case has been recorded in Great Britain and that was in 1967.
Foot-and-mouth disease is insidious (潜伏的) and can be spread by direct or indirect
contact with infected animal. The disease can be spread in the wind, and can also be spread by people, equipment or vehicles which have been in contact with the disease.
Although the authorities do not really know where this latest outbreak
of the disease originated, it can enter a country in frozen meat imported from other countries where the disease is common. Unlike Mad Cow Disease (BSE) and the human equivalent
CJD, foot-and-mouth has no implications (牵连) for the human food chain. Any meat, milk,
cheese, and other dairy products can be consumed quite safely.
It seems that the only way to contain the disease is to kill infected animals. There is no cure for the disease, and although adult animals normally
recover in 2~3 weeks, they sadly remain carriers of the virus (病毒) for up to two years.
From the time the disease was first reported to the time the epidemic
(流行) was officially
declared over, one and a half million and more domestic animals were slaughtered and large areas of the countryside
were closed to the public. These areas included parks, woods and forests, and various leisureattraction
situated in the countryside
65. The main purpose of writing this text is ________.
A. to warn people of the danger of the disease
B. to describe the disaster caused by the disease
C. to share some of the facts about the disease
D. to declare the success in control of the disease
66. Foot-and-mouth disease is insidious because it is spread ________.
A. by farmers and farm vehicles B. in so many different ways
C. by being carried in the air
D. mainly by people who have been in contact with infected animals
67. How is foot-and-mouth different from Mad Cow Disease?
A. It affects the human food chain. B. People cannot consume dairy products.
C. It is found in frozen meat. D. Meat is still safe to eat.
68. The underlined word “they" in Part C refers to ________.
A. diseases B. infected animals
C. adult animals D.2~3 weeks
It has been thought and said that Africans are born with musical talent. Because music is so important in the lives of many Africans and because so much music is performed in Africa, we are inclined to think that all Africans are musician
s. The impression is strengthened when we look at ourselves and find that we have become largely a society of musical spectators (旁观者). Music is important to us, but most of us can be considered consumer
s rather than producer
s of music. We have records, television, concerts, and radio to fulfill many of our musical needs. In most situations where music is performed in our culture, it is not difficult to distinguish the audience from the performers, but such is often not the case in Africa. Ablan Ayipage, a Kasena semiprofessional musician
from northern Ghana, says that when his flute (长笛) and drum ensemble
(歌舞团) is performing, "anybody can take part". This is true, but Kasena musician
s recognize that not all people are equally capable of taking
part in the music. Some can sing along with the drummers, but relatively
few can drum and even fewer can play the flute along with the ensemble
. It is fairly common in Africa for there to be an ensemble
of expert musician
s surrounded by others who join in by clapping, singing, or somehow, adding to the totality of musical sound. Performances often take place in an open area (that is, not on a stage) and so the lines between the performing nucleus
and the additional performers, active spectators, and passive spectators may be difficult to draw from our point of view.
69. The difference between us and Africans, as far as music is concerned
is that ______.
A. most of us are consumer
s while most of them are producer
s of music
B. we are musical performers and they are semiprofessional musician
C. most of us are passive spectators while they are active spectators
D. we are the audience and they are the additional performers
70. The underlined word “such" refers to the fact that ________.
A. music is performed with the participation
of the audience
B. music is performed without the participation
of the audience
C. people tend to distinguish the audience from the performers
D. people have records, television sets and radio to fulfill their musical needs
71. The author of the passage implies that_______.
A. all Africans are musical and therefore much music is performed in Africa
B. not all Africans are born with musical talent although music is important in their lives
C. most Africans are capable of joining in the music by playing musical instruments
D. most Africans perform as well as professional musician
72. The best title for this passage would be _______.
A. The Importance of Music to African People
B. Differences Between African Music and Music of Other Countries
C. The Relationship Between Musicians and Their Audience
D. A Characteristic Feature of African Musical Performances
London: Lazy students can now give up on work altogether as two Oxford University students have made scores of A-grade essays (论文) on the website for students to copy. The essays are, on the new website "revise
The website includes an "Essay Lab" designed to make cheating (舞弊) as effective and effortless as possible.
Its homepage announces to surfers (网上冲浪者): "The Revise It Essay Lab is a bank of hundreds of A-kevel essays covering popular topics."

Nick Rose and Jordan Mayo, both 19 and first from Manchester, spent much of their first year as students at the university setting
up the website. There is no charge for downloading the essays.

Among other tips, the website suggests inventing important speeches to give essays extra weight: "Popular people to quote (引用) are Douglas Hurd or Disraeli."
Hurd was a foreign secretary in the 1980s and Disraeli was a 19th century prime minister. Teachers are expressing their opinions by e-mail that they are angry about the website that “encourages students to cheat”, but students disagree.
According to Rose: “Exams are a fight. It's us against them.”

Time spent in a bookshop can be enjoyable. If you go to a good shop, no assistant will come near to you and say "Can I help you?" You needn't buy anything you don't want. You may try to find out where the book you want is. The assistant will lead you there and then he will go away and look as if he is not interested in selling a single books.
There is a story which tells us about a good shop.
A medical student had to read a textbook which was too expensive for him to buy. He couldn't get it from a book shop. So every afternoon, he went there to read a little at a time. One day, however, he couldn't find it from its usual place and was about to leave when he noticed an assistant signing to him. To his surprise, the assistant pointed to the book, which was in a corner. "I put it there so as not to sell it out," said the assistant. Then he left the student to continue his reading.

About fifty American students came to visit our school today.
We gathered at the school at 8 o'clock to give them a warm welcome. Then we had a get-together in the reading room in our library. Our headmaster told them something about our school. And then we talked with each other and exchanged gifts. From nine thirty we showed them around our school. They visited our classroom building, the lab building, the factory run by our school, and the swimming pool. A friendly basketball game started on the sports ground at then thirty. At twelve o'clock all American students left our school.
In the afternoon my classmates and I went to some shops. We chose and bought some books and tapes.
I was busy but happy today.
