PART B

Questions 31-34

Baker: It seems to me that the question is not whether the metric system should be introduced in the United States, but rather, how it should be introduced.
Woman: I think that it should be done gradually to give everyone enough time to adjust. Yes. Perhaps we could even have two systems for a while. I mean, we could keep the
Man: English system and use metrics as an optional system. Woman: That’s what they seem to be doing. When you go to the grocery store, look at the labels on the cans and packages. They are marked in both ounces and grams.
Man: Right. I’ve noticed that too. And the weather reporters on radio and TV give the temperature readings in both degrees Fahrenheit and degrees Celsius now. Woman: Some road signs have the distances marked in both miles and kilometers, especially on the interstate highways. What do you think, Professor Baker? Baker: Well, I agree that a gradual adoption is better for those of us who have already been exposed to the English system of measurement. But I would favor teaching only metrics in the elementary schools.
Man – I see your point. It might be confusing to introduce two systems at the same time.

32. What changes in measurement in the United States have the students observed?

Man – Oh, not until next month. I want to leave on May 15th and return on May 19th. I thought maybe if I called in advance I could get a better fare.
Woman – Yes, you can. But if you stay over Saturday night and return on Sunday, May 20th, the ticket will be even cheaper.
Man – Really? How much cheaper?
Woman – Almost fifty dollars.
Man – Hmnn. But I would have an extra night in a hotel. No. That’s okay. I’ll just keep it for May 19th.
Woman – All right. Do you have a seating preference?
Man – I’d rather have a window seat.
Woman – Good. There is one available. And do you want me to mail these tickets or will you pick them up?

PART C

Questions 39-42. Listen to “Breakthroughs in Science,” a weekly radio program.

Since the National Aeronautical and Space Administration was established in 1961, NASA has been engaged in an extensive research effort, which, in cooperation with private industry, has transferred technology to the international marketplace. Hundreds of everyday products can be traced back to the space mission, including cordless electrical tools, airtight food packaging, water purification systems, and even scratch coating for eye glasses.

In addition, may advances in medical technology can be traced back to NASA laboratories. First used to detect flaws in spacecraft, ultrasound is now standard equipment in almost every hospital for diagnosis and assessment of injuries and disease; equipment first used by NASA to transmit images from space to Earth is used to assist in cardiac imaging, and lasers first used to test satellites are now used in surgical procedures. Under-the-skin implants for the continuous infusion of drugs, and small pacemakers to regulate the heart were originally designed to monitor the physical condition of astronauts in space.
Finally, with the help of images that were obtained during space missions, and NASA technology, archaeologists have been able to explore the Earth. Cities lost under desert sands have been located and rediscovered, and the sea floor has been mapped using photographs from outer space.

39. What is the talk mainly about?
40. Which of the products listed are NOT mentioned as part of the technology development for space missions?
41. According to the speaker, why did NASA develop medical equipment?
42. Why does the speaker mention archaeology?

 

Questions 43-46. Listen to a talk by a tour guide on a bus. The first permanent

The first permanent settlement was made at this site in 1776, when a Spanish military post was established on the end of that peninsula. During the same year, some Franciscan Fathers founded the Mission San Francisco de Asis on a hill above the post. A trail was cleared from the military post to the mission, and about halfway between the two, a station was established for travelers called Yerba Buena, which means “good herbs.”

For thirteen years the village had fewer than one hundred inhabitants. But in 1848, with the discovery of gold, the population grew to ten thousand. That same year, the name was changed from Yerba Buena to San Francisco.

By 1862, telegraph communications linked San Francisco with eastern cities, and by 1869, the first transcontinental railroad connected the Pacific coast with the Atlantic seaboard. Today San Francisco has a population of almost seven million. It is the financial center of the West, and serves as the terminus for trans-Pacific steamship lines and air traffic. The port of San Francisco, which is almost eighteen miles long, handles between five and six million tons of cargo annually.

And now, if you will look to your right, you should just be able to see the Golden Gate Bridge. The bridge, which is more than one mile long, spans the harbor from San Francisco to Marin County and the Redwood Highway. It was completed in 1937 at a cost of thirty two million dollars and is still one of the largest suspension bridges in the world.

43. What is the main purpose of this talk?
44. According to the tour guide, what was the settlement called before it was renamed San Francisco?
45. According to the tour guide, what happened in 1848?
46. How long is the Golden Gate Bridge?

 

Questions 47-50. Listen to a talk by a college instructor in an English class.

So many different kinds of writing have been called essays, it is difficult to define exactly what an essay is. Perhaps the best way is to point out four characteristics that are true of most essays. First, an essay is about one topic. It does not start with one subject and digress to another and another. Second, although a few essays are long enough to be considered a small book, most essays are short. Five hundred words is the most common length for an essay. Third, an essay is written in prose, not poetry. True, Alexander Pope did call two of his poems essays, but that word is part of a title, and after all, the “Essay on Man” and the “Essay on Criticism” really are not essays at all. They are long poems. Fourth, and probably most important, an essay is personal. It is the work of one person whose purpose is to share a thought, idea, or point of view. Let me also state here that since an essay is always personal, the term “personal essay” is redundant. Now, taking into consideration all of these characteristics, perhaps we can now define an essay as a short, prose composition with a personal viewpoint that discusses one topic. With that in mind, let’s brainstorm some topics for your first essay assignment.

47. What is the instructor defining?
48. What is the main point of the talk?
49. According to the talk, which of the characteristics are NOT true of an essay?
50. What will the students probably do as an assignment?
