2008年4月北京成人本科学士学位英语考试真题(B卷)

  Directions: There are three 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 mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.

  Passage 1

  Question 1to 5 are based on the following passage.

  If you have a chance to go to Finland, you will probably be surprised to find how “foolish” the Finnish people are.

  Take the taxi drivers for example. Taxis in Finland are mostly high-class Benz with a fare of two US dollars a kilometer. You can go anywhere in one, tell the driver to drop you at any place, say that you have some business to attend to, and then walk off without paying your fare. The driver would not show the least sign of anxiety.

  The dining rooms in all big hotels not only serve their guests, but also serve outside diners. Hotel guests have their meals free, so they naturally go to the free dining rooms to have their meals. The most they would do to show their good faith is to wave their registration card to the waiter. With such a loose check, you can easily use any old registration card to take a couple of friends to dine free of charge.

  The Finnish workers are paid by the hour. (77) They are very much on their own as soon as they have agreed with the boss on the rate. From then on they just say how many hours they have worked and they will be paid accordingly.

  With so many loopholes(漏洞) in everyday life, surely Finland must be a heaven to those who love to take “petty advantages”. But the strange thing is, all the taxi passengers would always come back to pay their fare after they have attended to their business; not a single outsider has ever been found in the free hotel dining rooms. And workers always give an honest account of the exact hours they put in. As the Finns always act on good faith in everything they do, living in such a society has turned everyone into a real “gentleman”.

  (78) In a society of such high moral practice, what need is there for people to be on guard against others?

  1. While taking a taxi in Finland, _____

  A. a passenger can go anywhere without having to pay the driver

  B. a passenger pays two US dollars for a taxi ride

  C. a passenger can never be turned down by the taxi driver wherever he wants to go

  D. a passenger needs to provide good faith demonstration before they leave without paying


  2. We know from the passage that big hotels in Finland_____

  A. provide meal for only those who live in the hotels

  B. provide meals for any diners

  C. provide free wine and charge for food

  D. are mostly poorly managed


  3. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?

  A. The workers in Finland are paid by the hour.

  B. The bosses in Finland are too busy to check the working hours of their employees.

  C. The workers are always honest with their working hours.

  D. The workers and their bosses will make an agreement in advance about the pay.


  4. The word “those” in the last paragraph probably refers to _____

  A. people who often take taxis

  B. people who often have meals in big hotels

  C. people who are dishonest

  D. people who are worthy of trust


  5. It can be concluded that _____

  A. Finnish people are not smart enough in daily life

  B. Finland has been a good place for cheats

  C. the Finnish society is of very high moral level

  D. all the Finns are rich
