33.It was not until 1920regular radio broadcast began.
解析众所周知，当时间状语由until/till引出时，如果谓语动词为非延续性动词，则要用否定式，表示“直到……才……”。本句的正常结构应为：Regular radio broadcast didn’t begin until 1920.如果强调本句的时间状语，则要把not和until...一起放在句首，可以构成：Not until 1920 did regular radio broadcast begin.（注意表示否定意义的副词位于句首，要倒装），如果使用强调结构，则可构成：It was not until 1920 that regular radio broadcast began.

解析keep in touch with...意为“与……保持联系”；get in touch with...“和……取得联系”；lose touch with...“与……失去联系”；out of touch“失去联系，对……生疏”。keep in touch with与out of touch with为延续性动词短语，可与一段时间状语连用；而lose touch with与get in touch with为非延续性动词词组，不与一段时间状语连用。D项中无宾语，故不需用介词with。

The recipients are students from poor families who have an excellent36 in their studies.But the University of Science and Technology of Beijing 37 even further with its 38.This year’s recipients have to be nonsmokers,and frugal(节俭) as well.39 who is silly enough to use the scholarship money 40 friends to meals could face the hope of having 41 taken back.
The assessment process(评估过程) was 42.The applicant(申请者) was asked to do two things:43 a short speech about study,campus life,and family conditions;and take part in a question and answer meeting with the organizations in charge.
The organization was clear in its decision process and awarded the scholarships to 147 students.
44 how the money should be spent,however,45 differ.Some students say that it’s natural,even 46,for a winner to invite friends to celebration,usually a meal.The scholarship winners themselves did not seem to agree.“I object to 47 the money on a big dinner for friends.48 the winners who are from poor families should make good use of the money and not waste it,”said Si Guangrong,one of the winners,who said she 49 use it for her postgraduate study.

Shakespeare said that “some are born great,some achieve greatness,and some have greatness thrust upon them”.So it is with leadership.Some men are born with a capacity/ability for leadership.Some acquire(获得) that art by watching and studying the actions of those around them.Other persons find themselves thrown into unusual situations which require them to draw on resources they never realized they had,and events bring out marked leadership.Most of us are never put to such tests.Most of us are not born leaders.
We often hear people say,“He’s a great guy to work for.”We see workers go out of their way to do things for certain supervisors(管理人).We see them carry out instructions cheerfully and well or even add something to the doing of the job which was unexpected.In other words,they put themselves into the job and give it that “plus effort” which people give only when they feel that they are part of the team,that they are making a contribution to its success,and that their contributions are understood and appreciated.
Now this is not something which just happens.It is built on a onetoone relationship.It is a reflection of the person’s attitude toward the job,the supervisor,and the company.Where it exists,it has been developed over a period,appreciates their efforts and tries to give them all a fair deal.

According to a recent poll(民意测验),61 percent of America high school students have admitted to cheating on exams at least once.It can be argued such a response may not mean much.After all,most students have been faced with the temptation to peek(偷看) at a neighbors test paper.And students can be hard on themselves in judging such behavior.However,there are other indications that high school cheating may be on the rise.
More and more states are requiring students to pass competency(能力) tests in order to receive their high school diplomas(文凭).And many educators fear that an increase in the use of state exams will lead to a corresponding(相应的) rise in cheating.A case in point is students in New York State who faced criminal misdemeanor(轻罪) charges for possessing and selling advance copies of state Regents examinations.
Cheating is now considered to be a major problem in colleges and universities.Several professors say they’ve dropped the traditional term paper requirement because many students buy prewritten term papers,and they can’t track down all the cheaters anymore.Colleges and universities across the nation have decided to do more than talk about the rise in student cheating.For instance,the Department of Psychology at the University of Maryland started a campaign to stop one form of cheating.As 409 students failed out of their exam,they found all but one exit blocked.Proctors(监考人) asked each student to produce an ID card with an attached photo.Students who said they’d left theirs in the dorm or at home had a mug shot(面部照片) taken.The purpose of the campaign was to catch “ringers”,students who take tests for other students.
The majority of students at the University of Maryland applauded the campaign.The campus newspaper editorial said,“Like police arresting speeders,the intent is not to catch everyone but rather to catch enough to spread the word.”
Many educators feel that as students gain confidence in themselves and their abilities,they are less likely to cheat.Surprisingly,some efforts to prevent cheating may actually encourage cheating—a person may feel“they don’t trust me anyway”,and be tempted to “beat the system”.Distrust can be contagious(传染的).But,so can trust!
60.An increase in the use of state exams may result in.
A.more states requiring students to pass competency tests
B.more students receiving high school diplomas
C.a drop in criminal misdemeanor charges
D.a rise in high school cheating
61.The purpose in making students produce an ID card with a photo when they take an exam is.
A.to make students more aware of the great amount of cheating going on
B.to catch bright students who sell the information they remember to other students
C.to catch students who take tests for other students
D.to compare test results of students who sat near each other
62.The campaign launched by the Department of Psychology at the University of Maryland is used as an example to show that.
A.students can be hard on themselves in judging some behavior as cheating
B.proctors are very clever at tracking down cheaters
C.colleges and universities have decided to do more than talk about the rise in student cheating
D.psychology professors are determined to catch all those who take tests for their fellow students
63.According to the campus newspaper editorial,the purpose of the campaign was.
A.to help police catch enough speeders
B.to catch as many cheaters as necessary to make known the warning
C.to track down as many “ringers” as possible to discourage cheating

Faces,like fingerprints,are unique(独一无二的).Did you ever wonder how it is possible for us to recognize people?Even a skilled writer probably could not describe all the features that make one face different from another.Yet a very young child—or even an animal,such as a pigeon—can learn to recognize faces.We all take this ability for granted.
We also tell people apart by how they behave.When we talk about someone’s personality,we mean the ways in which he or she acts,speaks,thinks and feels that make that individual different from others.
Like the human face,human personality is very complex(复杂的).But describing someones personality in words is somewhat easier than describing his face.If you were asked to describe what a “nice face” looked like,you probably would have a difficult time doing so.But if you were asked to describe a “nice person”,you might begin to think about someone who was kind,considerate,friendly,warm,and so forth.
There are many words to describe how a person thinks,feels and acts.Gordon,an American psychologist(心理学家),found nearly 18 000 English words characterizing differences in people’s behavior.And many of us use this information as a basis for describing,or typing,his personality,bookworms,conservatives,military types—people are described with such terms.
People have always tried to “type” each other.Actors in early Greek drama wore masks to show the audience whether they played the villains(坏人) or the hero’s role.In fact,the words “person” and “personality” come from the Latin persona,meaning “mask”.Today,most television and movie actors do not wear masks.But we can easily tell the “good guys” from the “bad guys” because the two types differ in appearance as well as in actions.
64.The passage mainly tells us something about.
A.how to distinguish(区分) people’s faces
B.how to describe people’s personality
C.how to distinguish people both inward and outward
A.Different people may have different personalities.
B.People differ from each other in appearance.
C.People can learn to recognize faces.
D.People can describe all the features of others.
解析细节理解题。从第一段“Even a skilled writer probably could not describe all the features”可以得出答案。
66.The reason why it is easier to describe a person’s personality in words than his face is that.
A.a person’s face is more complex than his personality
B.a person’s personality is easily distinguished
C.people’s personalities are very alike
D.many more words are available when people try to describe one’s personality
解析推理判断题。读第四段可知，人们在描述一个人的性格时，可以有很多词汇供选择(There are many words to describe how...nearly 18 000...)。
67.We learn from the passage that people classify a person into a certain type according to.
A.his way of acting and thinking
B.his way of speaking and behaving
C.his learning and behavior
D.his physical appearance and his personality
解析细节理解题。从最后一句话我们可以知道，我们很容易去辨别一个人是好还是坏，这是因为“...the two types differ in appearance as well as in actions.”actions可以反应一个人的个性，D项符合这两方面的内容。

D day is a term(术语) used to stand for the starting day of a campaign or planned series(一系列) of actions.When the secret starting date is unknown,secret or subject to change,D day is the reference point which helps planners arrange every step of campaign.For example,the day before D day is D-1;the day after:D+1,D+2 and so on.
