A

In 1939 two brothers,Mac and Dick McDonald,started a drive-in restaurant in San Bernadino,California.They carefully chose a busy corner for their location.They had run their own businesses for years,first a theater,then a barbecue(烤肉)restaurant,then another drive-in.But in their new operation,they offered a new,shortened menu:French fries,hamburgers,and sodas.To this small selection they added one new idea:quick service,no waiters or waitresses,and no tips.

Their hamburgers sold for fifteen cents.Cheese was another four cents.Their French fries and hamburgers had a remarkable uniformity(一致性),for the brothers had developed a strict routine (程序)for the preparation of their food,and they insisted on their cooks’ sticking to their routine .Their new drive-in became surprisingly popular,particularly for lunch.People drove up by the hundreds during the busy noontime.The self-service restaurant was so popular that the brothers had allowed ten copies of their restaurant to be opened.They were content with this modest success until they met Ray Kroc.

Kroc was a salesman who met the McDonald brothers in 1954,when he was selling milkshake-mixing machines.He quickly saw the special attraction of the brothers’ fast-food restaurants and bought the right to franchise(特许经营)other copies of their restaurants.The aGREement struck included the right to duplicate(复制)the menu,the equipment,even their red and white buildings with the golden arches(拱门).

Today McDonald’s is really a household name.In 1976,McDonald’s had over $ l billion in total sales.Its first twenty-two years in one of the most surprising success stories in modern American business history.

56This passage mainly talks about .

Athe development of fast food services

Bhow McDonald’s became a billion-dollar business

Cthe business careers of Mac and Dick McDonald

DRay Kroc’s business talent

57Mac and Dick managed all of the following businesses except .

Aa drive-in   Ba theater   Ca cinema   Da barbecue restaurant

58We may infer from this passage that .

AMac and Dick McDonald never became wealthy for they sold their idea to Kroc.

Bthe place the McDonalds chose was the only source of the GREat popularity of their drive-in

Cforty years ago there were lots of fast-food restaurants

DRay Kroc was a good businessman

59The passage suggests that .

Acreativity is an important element of business success

BRay Kroc was the close partner of the McDonald brothers

CMac and Dick McDonald became broken after they sold their ideas to Ray Kroc

DCalifornia is the best place to go into business

B

Maggie was very glad that James was not a frequent visitor to the house.In the children’s opinion,they had something that they couldn’t explain or understand about him and that excited their imagination.He stirred Maggie’s anger,however,so that she often said to her husband,“It’s a mercy that brother of yours doesn’t come oftener.”

In fact James came once a year,unexpectedly,around eight o’clock in the evening,and he stayed for six hours of close discussion with his brother.His arrival was a signal to the childreen that their bedtime would be delayed.Not that he ever spoke to them or played with them.He took no notice of them,as if he was unable to see children,at least until the time came for him to go.Indeed,after his first GREeting and a careless kiss,James took no notice of Maggie either, except to add,“You’ll be getting on with the supper,Maggie.”Such was his regard for her.

Maggie paid him back in her own way.She kept the children up,the four of them,to keep her company,she said,but of course they sang and made a noise and broke the endless sound of James’voice.Very late,they dropped off to sleep in their chairs.Then,when James was about to go,Maggie woke them up and so more or less forced him to part with four shillings before he left.That gave her some satisfaction,for James,though rich,was unwilling to give or share what he had.He always went home by the last train,just after two o’clock.

Maggie’s children secretly stared at their uncle.They could not forget that he had,in their mother’s words,“lost two wives and taken a third.”They wondered about those two unfortunate,lost ladies.They asked each other what their fate(命运)had been,and if neither could ever be found again.James never brought his third wife with him nor ever mentioned her.The children decided that he must be so frightened of losing her that he never allowded her outside the door.

60Maggie never prepared anything special for James because .

Ahe was a man difficult to please

Bshe never knew when he was coming

Cshe was too busy looking after her children

Dhe never stayed long enough for a meal

61What do we know about James’ behaviour?

AHe was a kind man,with love for the family.

BHe was unselfish,especially towards his brother.

CHe was anxious to please the family,especially the children.

DHe was rude to his sister-in-law

62Maggie felt pleased when .

Ashe paid James the money that she owed him

BJames gave some money to the children

Cshe had to wake James up to catch his train

DJames thanked her for the nice supper

63The children did not realise that two of Jasmes’wives .

Awere dead              Bsuffered from loss of memory

Chad run away from him   Dmight reappear one day

C

Humans are social animals.They live in groups all over the world.As these groups of people live apart from other groups,over the years and centuries they develop their own habits and ideas,which from different cultures.One important particular side of every culture is how its people deal with time.

Time is not very important in nonindustrial societies.The Nuer people of East Africa,for example,do not even have a word TIME that is in aGREement with the abstract thing we call time.The daily lives of the people of such nonindustrial societies are likely to be patterned around their physical needs and natural events rather than around a time schedule(时间表)based on the clock.They cook and eat when they are hungry and sleep when the sun goes down.They plant crops during the growing seasons and harvest them when the crops are ripe.They measure time not by a clock or calendar(日历),but by saying that an event takes place before or after some other event Frequently such a society measures days in terms of “sleeps”or longer periods in terms of “moons.”Some cultures,such as the Eskimos of GREenland measure seasons according to the migration of certain animals.

Some cultures which do not have a written language or keep written records havce developed interesting ways of “telling time”.For example,when several Australian aborigines want to plan an event for a future time,one of them places a stone on a cliff or in a tree.Each day the angle of the sun changes slightly.In a few days,the rays of the sun strike the stone in a certain way.When this happens,the people see that the aGREed-upon time has arrived and the event can take place.

In contrast(成对比),exactly correct measurement of time is very important in modem,industrialized societies.This is because industrialized societies require the helpful efforts of many pople in order to work.For a factory to work efficiently well,quickly and without waste),for example,all of the workers must work at the same time.Therefore,they must know what time to start work in the morning and what time they may go home in the afternoon.Passengers must know the exact time that an airplane will arrive or depart.Students and teachers need to know when a class starts and ends.Stores must open on time in order to serve their customers.Complicated(复杂的)societies need clocks and calendars.Thus,we can see that if each person worked according to his or her own schedule, a complicated society could hardly work at all.

64By saying“Humans are social animals”,the author means .

Athey live all over the world

Bthey are different from other animals

Cthey live in one place, district or country, considered as a whole

Dthey are divided into many groups

65Time is not very important in nonindustrial societies. This is because people in those societies

Adon’t have the word TIME in their languages

Bdon’t get used to using clocks and other timepieces

Cdon’t measure time in their daily-lives around an exact time schedule

Ddon’t need to plan their daily lives around an exact time schedule

66The Australian aborigines’ way of “telling time” is based on .

Athe change of the sun rays

Bthe movement of the earth in relation to the sun

Cthe position of the stone

Dthe position of the tree or the cliff

67Which of the following might be the best title for this passage?

ATime and Culture              BThe Measurment of Time

CTime Schedule and Daily Life   DClock, Calendar and Society
