Directions: There are 4 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 write your answer in capital letter on the Answer Sheet.
Questions 41 to 45 are based on the following passage:
Every year just after Christmas the January Sales start. All the shops reduce their prices and for two weeks, they are full of people looking for bargains. My husband and I do not normally go to the sales as we don't like crowds and in any case are short of money as we have to buy lots of Christmas presents.
Last year, however, I took my husband with me to the sales at the large shop in the center of London. We both needed some new clothes and were hoping to find a television set. When we go to Oxford Street, it was so crowded that we decided to split up and meet again at the underground station. So I left my husband and started looking around the shops. Unfortunately all the clothes were in very large sizes and so were not suitable for me. But I did buy a television at a very cheap price, so I felt quite pleased with myself.
(81)When I arrived at the station, my husband was not there. So I sat down in a nearby cafe to have a cup of tea. I quickly finished my tea when I saw my husband and went out to meet him. He looked very happy. Then I saw he was carrying a large and heavy cardboard box. “Oh, dear!" I thought. Yes, we had no new clothes but two television. We shall not be going to the sales again.

Questions 46 to 50 are based on the following passage:
How often one hears children wishing they were grown up, and old people-wishing they were young again. Each age has its pleasures and its pains, and the happiest person is the one who enjoys what each age gives him without wasting his time in useless regrets.
Youth is a time when there are few tasks to make life difficult. If a child has good parents, he is fed, looked after and loved whatever he may do. It is impossible that he will ever again in his life be given so much without having to do anything in return. In addition, life is always presenting new things to the child things that have lost their interest for older people because they are too well known. But a child has his pains: he is not so free to do what he wishes to do; he is continually being told not to do things, or being punished for what he has done wrong.
(82) When the young man starts to earn his own living,-he can no longer expect others to pay for his food, his clothes, and his room, but has to work if he wants to live comfortably. If he spends most of his time playing about in the way that he used to as a child, he will go hungry. And if he breaks the laws of society as he used to break the laws of his parents, he may go to prison. If, however, he works hard, keeps out of trouble and has good health, he can have the great happiness of building up for himself his own position in society.

Questions 51 to 55 are based on the following passage:
As you are students of English, it's very possible that- you'll be interested in England. That's where the language was first spoken. But England is often called by other names. This often confuses people and I wonder if you know what these names mean. So, now I would like to tell you about this matter of names. I believe that you. have heard people use the names---England, Britain or Great Britain. Let's see what each of these names means.
If you look at a map of Europe, you'll see a group of islands---one larger island off the northwest coast, one smaller and many tiny ones. These make up what is called the British Isles. The largest island of the British Isles is Britain. It is also called Great Britain. The smaller island is Ireland.
(83) Britain is divided into three parts: Scotland, Wales and England. But sometimes the Word "England” is used instead of "Britain". Why so?
In ancient times, what is Britain now used to be three different countries. People in these different countries spoke different language. Over many years the three countries became one. England is the largest and richest of the three and it has the most people. So the English people take it for granted that their own name stands for the whole island.
There's another thing that confuses people: sometimes you may hear people say "the Untied Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". That is official name of the country. Northern Ireland is only one sixth of the island of Ireland. The rest of the island is an independent state, called the Republic of Ireland. So we have the names of' “England", "Britain", “Great Britain", and "the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". Now do you know what each of them means?

A. Britain B. England C. Great Britain D. Ireland

思想交流一向是十分必要的。因为，若无思想交流，便不可能使人们在与自然界进行的斗争 中，协调其活动；便不可能保证社会生产活动获得成功；因而也就不可能有社会生产本身的存在。可见，如果没有整个社会所懂得的语言，如果没有社会成员共同的 语言，那么这个社会便会停止生产，便会崩溃，便会无法继续存在下去。从这个意义上说，语言既是交际的工具，同时也是社会斗争和社会发展的工具。
