  M: Well, you see I’m a student, how much more would a two-bedroom apartment cost me? (来源:www.EnglishCN.com)

  W: The one-bedroom rents for $150 a month and the two-bedroom is only thirty-five dollars more.

  M: Is the two-bedroom a great deal larger than the one-bedroom?

  W: Yes, it is. Also, I might tell you that one-bedroom doesn’t have a dishwasher. All of our two-bedroom apartments do.

  M: What about signing a lease?

  W: We do require a 6-month lease, and there is a deposit of $100 in case of any damage to the apartment.

  M: Is there a pool?

  W: No, I’m sorry, there isn’t. We do have a recreation area and a sauna. Also, there are tennis courts close to our building.

  M: When could I see an apartment?

  W: How about later this afternoon? Let’s see. I have an appointment at three thirty and another one at four. How about four fifty this afternoon?

  M: That would be fine. I’ll pick my wife up from work, and we’ll come right over.

  W: I’ll be looking forward to seeing you then.

  M: Thank you. Goodbye.

  W: Goodbye.

  Section B

  Directions: In this section, you will hear 3 short passages. At the end of each passage, you will hear some questions. Both the passage and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a question, you must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A), B), C) and D). Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2 with a single line through the center.

  Passage One

  How do you decide what you are going to buy in a supermarket? Do you look in the refrigerator and the kitchen cupboards and make a list ? Do you think about what you want to cook and then buy the food you need ? Even if you do these things, the supermarket makes some of the decisions for you.

  Specialists in marketing have studied how to make people buy more food in a supermarket. They do all kinds of things that you do not even notice. For example, the simple, ordinary food that everybody must buy, like bread, milk, flour and vegetable oil, is spread all over the store. You have to walk by all the more interesting—and more expensive—things in order to find what you need. The more expensive food is in packages with bright-colored pictures. This food is placed at eye level so you see it and want to buy it. The things that you have to buy anyway are usually located on a higher or lower shelf. However, candy and other things that children like are on lower shelves. One study showed that when a supermarket moved four products from floor to eye level, it sold 78 percent more.

  Another study showed that for every minute a person is in a supermarket after the first half hour, she or he spends $0.50. If someone stays forty minutes, the supermarket has an additional $5.00. So the store has a comfortable temperature in summer and winter, and it plays soft music. It is a pleasant place for people to stay—and to spend more money.

  Questions 26 to 28 are based on the passage you have just heard.

  26. Why is simple food spread all over the supermarket?

  27. What is a good way to save money in a supermarket?

  28. What idea does the talk want to convey?

  Passage Two

  Football is, I believe, the most popular game in England: one has only to go to one of the important matches to see this. Rich or poor, young or old, one can see them all there, shouting for one side or the other.

  To a stranger, one of the most surprising things about football in England is the great knowledge of the game which even the smallest boy seems to have. He can tell you the names of the players in most of the important teams; he has pictures of them and knows the results of large numbers of matches. He will tell you who he expects will win such and such a match, and his opinion is usually as good as that of men three or four times his age.

  Most schools in England take football seriously—much more seriously than nearly all European schools, where lessons are all that are important, and games left for the children themselves. In England it is believed that education is not only a matter of filling a boy’s mind with facts in the classroom, education also means the training of character; and one of the best ways of training character is by means of games, especially team games, instead of working for himself alone. The school therefore plans games and matches for its pupils. Football is a good team game. It is good both for the body and the mind. That is why it is every school’s game in England.
