Directions: In this part there are six passages, each of which is followed by five questions. For each question there are four possible answers marked A. B. C and D. Choose the best answer and mark the letter of your choice on the ANSWER SHEET.
The popular idea that classical music can improve your maths is falling from favor. New experiments have failed to support the widely publicized finding that Mozart’s music promotes mathematical thinking.
Researchers reported six years ago that listening to Mozart brings about short-temporal reasoning, the type of thinking used in maths. Gordon Shaw of the University of California at Irvine and Frances Rauscher of the University of Wisconsin in Oshkosh had asked students to perform spatial tasks such as imagining how a piece of paper would look if it were folded and cut in a certain pat-tern.
Some of the students then listened to a Mozart sonata and took the test again. The performance of the Mozart group improved, Shaw found. He reasoned that listening to Mozart increases the number of connections between neurons.
But Kenneth Steele of Appalachian State University in North Carolina learnt that other studies failed to find this effect. He decided to repeat one of Shaw’ s experiments to see for himself.
Steele divided 125 students into three groups and tested their abilities to work out how paper would look if cut and folded. One group listened to Mozart, another listened to a piece by Philip Glass and the third did not listen to anything. Then the students took the test again.
No group showed any statistically significant improvement in their abilities. Steele concludes that the Mozart effect doesn’ t exist. "It’ s about as unproven and as unsupported as you can get," he says.
Shaw, however, defends his study. One reason he gives is that people who perform poorly in the initial test get the greatest boost from Mozart, but Steele didn’ t separate his students into groups based on ability. "We’ re still at the stage where it needs to be examined," Shaw says. "I suspect that the more we understand the neurobiology, the more we’ 11 be able to design tests that give a robust effect."
61. It has been recently found out that________.
A. Mozart had an aptitude of music because of his mathematical thinking
B. classical music cannot be expected to improve one’s math
C. the effects of music on health are widely recognized
D. music favors one’s mathematical thinking
62. Which of the following pairs, according to the widely publicized finding, is connected?
A. Paper cutting and spatial thinking.
B. The nature of a task and the type of thinking.
C. Classical music and mathematical performance.
D. Mathematical thinking and spatial-temporal reasoning.
63. In Shaw’ s test, the students would most probably__________.
A. draw the image of the cut paper
B. improve their mathematical thinking
C. have the idea about classical music confirmed
D. increase the number of neurons in their brains
64. From Steele’ s experiment we can say that__________.
A. his hypothesis did not get proven and supported
B. it was much more complicated than Shaw’ s
C. the results were statistically significant
D. Shaw’ s results were not repeatable

Long-suffering couples take heart. There is a good reason for those endless arguments in the front of the car: men and women use different parts of the brain when they try to find their way a-round, suggesting that the strategies they use might also be completely different.
Matthias Riepe and his colleagues at the University of Ulm in Germany asked 24 healthy volunteers-half of them men, half women--to find their way out of three virtual-reality mazes displayed on video goggles. Meanwhile, the researchers monitored the volunteers’ brain activity using a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner. This showed that men and women called on strikingly different brain areas to complete the task. "I didn’ t expect it to be so dramatic," says Riepe.
Previous studies have been shown that women rely mainly on landmarks to find their way. Men use these cues too, but they also use geometric cues, such as the angle and shape of a wall or a corner. Such studies also suggest that men navigate their way out of unfamiliar spaces more quickly, as Riepe found in his study, too.
Riepe discovered that both men and women used parts of the parietal cortex towards the top of the brain, the right side of the hippocampus and a few other well-established areas to find their way out. Neuroscientists think that the parietal regions help translate what the eves see into information about where the body is in space, while the hippocampal region helps process how objects are arranged.
But other regions seemed to be exclusively male or female. The men engaged the left side of their hippocampus, which the researchers say could help with assessing geometry, or remembering whether they have already visited a location. The women, by contrast, recruited their right frontal cortex. Riepe says this may indicate that they were using their "working memory" , trying to keep in mind the landmarks they had passed.
"It fits very well with the animal studies." says Rielpe. He points out that there seem to be similar differences in rats. For example, damage to the frontal lobe will impair a female’ s sense of direction, but not a male’ s.
66. The studies on the driving issue have evolved___________.
A. from the car to the driver
B. from the reality to the virtual-reality
C. from the physical cues to the parts of the brain
D. from the cues of navigation to the strategies of
67. The different parts of the brain men and women use to find their way around, according to the passage, refer to___________.
A. the left side of the hippocampus and the right frontal cortex
B. the right and left side of their hippocampuses respectively
C. the right and left hemisphere of their brains respectively
D. the parietal cortex and the hippocampus as a whole
68. The part of the brain women use may help explain why they_______.
A. use geometric cues to navigate
B. have a better memory than men
C. rely mainly on landmarks to find their ways
D. behave less aggressively than men in driving
69. The reason for the differences in the sexes, according to Riepe, could be________.
A. the environmental factor B. the psychological factor
C. the innate factor D. all of the above
70. Which one of the following questions did the studies answer?
A. How do women and men drive differently?
B. How can we detect the brain activities during driving?
C. Why do men and women argue over which route to take?
D. Why does the damage to the frontal lobe impair the sense of direction?
Work has left you frazzled. Your legs ache when you get back from the gym don’ t pop those aspirins just yet think hot springs. Cranking up a hot tub and hopping in is a natural remedy that can provide significant relief from physical pain and stress.
There are more than three million home spas in the U.S. today. There are numerous reasons spas have made the move from the decks of Hollywood producers to the back yards of middle America. Spas help reduce the effect of stress on your body, assist in muscle recovery after the stress of exercise, and help heal muscles near arthritic joints.
There are three elements to hydrotherapy that, in tandem, provide these healing effects on the body: heat, buoyancy, and motion. When you exercise, your muscles develop thousands of microscopic tears which result in painful lactic acid build-up in the muscle tissue. Hydrotherapy’ s motion and warmth cause blood vessels to dilate, lowering blood pressure and speeding the flow of oxy-gen, Endorphins, and cell-repairing nutrients to injured muscles. Additionally, buoyancy of the water reduces the strain on your knees and joints which allow the surrounding muscles to relax. This can be of crucial help to arthritis suffers, because when joints are inflamed, the surrounding muscles become tense to protect them. Relaxing in a spa then makes your muscles more limber and reduces the pain. Water’ s healing potential has long been known.
We don’ t tend to associate intelligence with our bodies, yet as Thomas Edison said. "Great ideas originate in the muscles." Radical psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich believed that many of us inhibit or deny impulses, feelings, traumas, and stresses by tightening our muscles and creating a kind of "body armor." He felt that as you cut off the source of pain, you also cut off the source of pleasure. By loosening body armor, by letting muscles relax, you can return to a feeling of flow and creativity.
Few things can relax the body more than a home spa. And a relaxed body leads to a relaxed mind. There is no better place to start relaxing than an hour in your home hot springs.
71. To begin with, what does the author insist we avoid doing?
A. Undergoing physical pain and stress. B. Taking aspirin tablets.
C. Going to the gym. D. Relaxing in a spa.

Convincing the public to follow health advice can be tough and time-consuming. This may be why changes to health messages are often fiercely resisted by those whose job is to get the advice across. So, for example, the suggestion that smokers who cannot quit should reduce their exposure to harm by switching to chewing tobacco met with extreme opposition.
A still more ferocious debate is emerging over the health impact of sunshine. For the past 20 years, advice on sunlight has come from dermatologists who rightly warn people to cover up when they venture outside for fear of developing skin cancer. But evidence from researchers in other fields now suggests that short periods in the sun without protection sometimes as little as a few minutes a day--can prevent most other major forms of cancer.
This surprising conclusion stems from findings that vitamin D, which is made by skin cells ex-posed to the sun’ s ultraviolet rays, is a potent anti-cancer agent. The researchers who made this discovery are eager to be heard. But their message is about as welcome as a bad rash, particularly in countries such as Australia and the US where fair-skinned immigrants living at Mediterranean latitudes have made skin cancer a huge problem.
The American Academy of Dermatology argues that advocating one carcinogen--UV radiation--to protect against other forms of cancer is dangerous and misleading. If people need more vita-min D, they should take a multivitamin or drink milk fortified with it, says the academy. Unfortunately, the solution is not as simple as that. Critics also argue that the protective effect of sunlight is not yet proved. While this may be true, the evidence is very suggestive. The case is built on several studies that bring together cellular biology, biochemistry and epidemiology.
And all the criticism of this theory counts for nothing if, as some of its advocates, suggest, the number of people dying for lack of sunlight is four times as high as those dying from skin cancer. At the same time, those advocates must not overstate their case. Everyone wants to save as many lives as they can.
What we need now is for national medical research bodies and cancer research organizations to investigate the relative risks and benefits of sunshine. This will almost certainly mean more epidemiological work, which should start as soon as possible. As for the public: give them the facts, including risk estimates for short periods in the sun--and for covering up. It is patronizing( 施恩于人的) to assume that people cannot deal with complex messages.
What we definitely do not want is a war of words between groups with polarized views, and no prospect of the issue being resolved. That way will only lead to confusion, distrust of doctors and more unnecessary deaths.

A. cannot be reached by health messages B. is torn between two health messages
C. never trust those health researchers D. are divided over health problems

I make my way down the three chilly blocks to an old diner on Commercial Street. I am meeting a new friend for lunch. I’ ve never been here before: this is not my part of town. And so I arrive early, to sit in an old wooden booth and learn what I can about the place.
They call it Katie’ s Kitchen. One hundred years ago, it was a bar. The barstools remain, but through community donations, it’ s now a respectable restaurant. The hostess, casher, and waiters are residents of a nearby hotel for the transient and unemployed and work here to gain dignity and job skills. Both the hotel and restaurant are nm by Sister L, a nun with a heart and a great deal of business sense.
My new friend arrives. He works down the street, in a clinic for indigent(贫穷的 ) persons; he knows these people. The workers and many of the clients seem to know him too, for I see warmth and proud smiles on their faces as he greets them. Behind him a few nameless souls wander in from the street in a swirl of December wind.
I focus on our waitress. A pretty girl of perhaps 18 years. She is all smiles and grace. I wonder for a moment why she’ s here--what her story is: what her dreams are; whether she is raising children on her own. But I cannot hold the thought, for she reminds me of another waitress at my favorite coffee shop--a college student with a bright future.
Some time later, I finish my soup and sandwich a good meal made better because of the smile of the girl who served it. I wipe my mouth and go to pay Eight dollars and sixty-four cents, for two. To our embarrassment, my friend and I discover that neither of us has cash and my credit card is not good here. We sheepishly approach Sister L who smiles and takes my bill. "It’ s okay," she says. "We’ 11 buy your lunch. It’ 11 be our pleasure.
Slowly, I leave the world of the diner. Back at the hospital where I work, my boss laments our financial woes. "We’ re really tight," he says. "The executive committee tells me we may not even have enough money to build the new critical care wing this year." He frowns, hesitates, then adds," It’ s flu season, though, and perhaps by seeing patients in person rather than tufting so many over the phone, we’ 11 recoup some of our losses. ‘
It’ s budget time, and I know that this means our grafts( 免费的) fitness center memberships may be cancelled. We’ re in a tough bind.
Three streets away, a tattered man in a throwaway overcoat sits shivering in the diner. Sister L slowly fills his cup full of hot coffee. Holding the cup with trembling hands, he stares deeply into its dark center. There is healing in its rising steam.
81. The doctor in the story enters a restaurant which__________.
A. has a one-hundred-year old bar
B. has won a reputation for its management
C. performs charities among the immigrants
D. serves such respectable people as doctors
82. He happens to know that his new friend_______.

C. The service by a beautiful waitress. D. His sitting in an old wooden booth.
84. From the lunch bill to the hot coffee, we can see_______.
A. sister L’ s warm heart B. financial woes everywhere
C. the way the author looks at the world
D. indigent people’ s financial embarrassment
85. The doctor implies that they, as Sister L does, will_______.
A. continue their healing despite their financial troubles
B. expand their business despite tight budget
C. avoid financial embarrassment
D. treat more patients over the phone
Confronted with patient facing death, physicians may feel a sense of medical impotence and failure. Years of training and zeal to heal have focused on doing anything and everything to save the patient. Death is treated as the enemy. One might ask, "What use can I be if I cannot fix?" One may be tempted to withdraw. There may be no meaningful closure with a patient other than referral to home care or hospice.
Feelings evoked by a patient’s dying are also antithetical( 对立的) to the original "call" to medicine--the desire to make a difference in people’ s lives and the alleviation of pain and suffering. Over time these inner directives may have been obscured by the rigors of a pressured practice, not to mention the climate of malpractice litigation(诉讼 ) This threat necessitates obsessive attention to the details of intervention options, possibly at the cost of considering the needs of the whole person at hand.
So the moment when death raises its specter(恐惧) is a crossroads. Herein lies the opportunity for physicians to go beyond their conventional model of relating to patients. This is when the conventional therapeutic tools can be set aside in favor of the most powerful contribution of all: the physician’ s caring itself. The only requirement is a willingness to extend conscious listening and basic humanity to the dying patient. The simple act of visitation, of presence, of taking the trouble to witness the patient’s process can be in itself a potent healing affirmation--a sacramental(圣礼的) gesture received by the dying person who may be feeling helpless, diminished, and fearful that they have little to offer others. The patient may also fear that he or she has failed.
How meaningful it is to be told by my physicians that they are learning from me! I feel honored and joined by my physicians as we participate in these human, vulnerable, and mysterious moments at the end of my life. I and many dying persons would agree that beyond pain control, the three elements we most need are feeling cared about, being respected, and enjoining a sense of continuity, be it in relationships or in terms of spiritual awareness.
86. Facing a terminally-iii patient, physicians________.
A. have no right to withdraw B. must save him or her at any cost
C. can do nothing but accept the failure
D. can be caught in the dilemma of cure or care

A. can lead to a legal suit
B. are likely to be set aside
C. tend to be antithetical to the quality of life

88. According to the passage, the physician’s caring relates to_________.
A. the needs of the dying patient treated as a whole person
B. the acceptance of medical impotence and failure
C. the exploration of all the intervention options
D. the avoidance of malpractice litigation
89. What the dying patient needs most that makes him or her feel honored is- the physician’s__________.
A. willingness to perform the basic humane acts
B. ability to alleviate pain effectively
C. powerful healing competence D. frankness and honesty
90. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage?
