Choose the one that you think is the best answer.? Mark your answers on your answer sheet.?? TEXT A It often happens that a number of applicants with almost identical qualifications and experience all apply for the same position. In their educational background, special skills and work experience, there is little, if anything, to choose between half a dozen candidates. How then does the employer make a choice? Usually on the basis of an interview.? There are many arguments for and against the interview as a selection procedure. The main argument against it is that it results in a wholly subjective decision. As often as not, emplyers do not choose the best candidate, they choose the candidate who makes a good first impression on them. Some employers, of course, reply to this argument by saying that they have become so experienced in interviewing staff that they are able to make a sound assessment of each candidate’ s likely performance.? The main argument in favour of the interview — and it is, perhaps, a good argument — is that an employer is concerned not only with a candidate’s ability, but with the suitability of his or her personality for the particular work situation. Many employers, for example, will overlook occasional inefficiencies from their secretary provided she has a pleasant personality. It is perhas true to say, therefore, that the real purpose of an interview is not to assess the assssable aspects of each candidate but to make a guess at the more intangible things, such as personality, character and social ability. Unfortunately, both for the employers and applicants for jobs, there are many people of great ability who simply do not interview well. There are also, of course, people who interview extremely well, but are later found to be very unsatisfactory employees.?
Candidates who interview well tend to be quietly confident, but never boastful; direct and straightforward in their questions and answers; cheerful and friendly, but never over-familiar; and sincerely enthusiastic and optimistic. Candidates who interview badly tend to be at either end of the spectrum of human behaviour. They are either very shy or over-confident. They show either a lack of enthusiasm or an excess of it. They either talk too little or never stop talking. They are either over-polite or rudely abrupt.? 66.We can infer from the passage that an employer might tolerate his secretary’s occasional mistakes, if the latter is ____? A. direct. B. cheerful. C. shy. D. capable.? 67.What is the author’s attitude towards the interview as a selection procedure? A. Unclear. B. Negative. C. Objective. D. Indifferent. 68.According to the passage, people argue over the interview as a selection procedure mainly because they have ____.? A. different selection procedures ? B. different puposes in the interview ? C. different standards for competence ? D. different experiences in interviews ? 69.The purpose of the last paragraph is to indicate ____.? A. a link between success in interview and personality ? B. connections between work abilities and personality ? C. differences in interview experience ? D. differences in personal behaviour TEXT B Every year thousands of people are arrested and taken to court for shop-lifting. In Britain alone, about HK$3,000,000’s worth of goods are stolen from shops every week. This amounts to something like HK$150 million a year, and represents about 4 per cent of the shops’ total stock. As a result of this “shrinkage” as the shops call it, the honest public has to pay higher prices.? Shop-lifters can be divided into three main categories: the professionals, the deliberate amateur, and the people who just can’t help themselves. The professionals do not pose much of a problem for the store detectives, who, assisted by closed circuit television, two-way mirrors and various other technological devices, can usually cope with them. The professionals tend to go for high value goods in parts of the shops where security measures are tightest. And, in any case, they account for only a small percentage of the total losses due to shop-lifting.? The same applies to the deliberate amateur who is, so to speak, a professional in training. Most of them get caught sooner or later, and they are dealt with severely by the courts.? The real problem is the person who gives way to a sudden temptation and is in all other respects an honest and law-abiding citizen. Contrary to what one would expect, this kind of shop-lifter is rarely poor. He does not steal because he needs the goods and cannot afford to pay for them. He steals because he simply cannot stop himself. And there are countless others who, because of age, sickness or plain absent-mindedness, simply forget to pay for what they take from the shops. When caught, all are liable to prosecution, and the decision whether to send for the police or not is in the hands of the store manager.? In order to prevent the quite incredible growth in ship-lifting offences, some stores, in fact, are doing their best to separate the thieves from the confused by prohibiting customers from taking
bags into the store. However, what is most worrying about the whole problem is, perhaps, that it is yet another instance of the innocent majority being penalized and inconvenienced because of the actions of a small minority. It is the aircraft hijack situation in another form. Because of the possibility of one passenger in a million boarding an aircraft with a weapon, the other 999,999 passengers must subject themselves to searches and delays. Unless the situation in the shops improves, in ten years’ time we may all have to subject ourselves to a body-search every time we go into a store to buy a tin of beans!? 70.Why does the honest public have to pay higher prices when they go to the shops? A. There is a “shrinkage” in market values.? B. Many goods are not available.? C. Goods in many shops lack variety.? D. There are many cases of shop-lifting. 71.The third group of people steal things because they ____? A. are mentally ill. B. are quite absent-minded.? C.can not resist the temptation. D. can not afford to pay for goods.? 72.According to the passage, law-abiding citizens ____.? A. can possibly steal things because of their poverty ? B. can possibly take away goods without paying ? C. have never stolen goods from the supermarkets ? D. are difficult to be caught when they steal things ? 73.Which of the following statements is NOT true about the main types of shop-lifting?? A. A big percentage of the total losses are caused by the professionals.? B. The deliberate amateurs will be punished severely if they get caught.? C. People would expect that those who can’t help themselves are poor.? D. The professionals don’t cause a lot of trouble to the store detectives.? 74.The aircraft hijack situation is used in order to show that ____.? A. “the professionals do not pose much of a problem for the stores”? B. some people “somply forget to pay for what they take from the shops”? C. “the honest public has to pay higher prices”? D. the third type of shop-lifters are dangerous people TEXT C My bones have been aching again, as they often do in humid weather. They ache like history: things long done with, that still remain as pain. When the ache is bad enough it keeps me from sleeping. Every night I yearn for sleep, I strive for it; yet it flutters on ahead of me like a curtain. There are sleeping pills, of course, but the doctor has warned me against them.? Last night, after what seemed hours of damp turmoil, I got up and crept slipperless down the staris, feeling my way in the faint street light that came through the window. Once safely arrived at the bottom, I walked into the kitchen and looked around in the refrigerator. There was nothing much I wanted to eat: the remains of a bunch of celery, a blue-tinged heel of bread, a lemon going soft. I’ve fallen into the habits of the solitary; my meals are snatched and random. Furtive snacks, furtive treats and picnics. I made do with some peanut butter, scooped directly from the jar with a forefinger: why dirty a spoon?? Standing there with the jar in one hand and my finger in my mouth, I had the feeling that someone was about to walk into the room — some other woman, the unseen, valid owner — and ask me
what in hell I was doing in her kitchen. I’ve had it before, the sense that even in the course of my most legitimate and daily actions — peeling a banana, brushing my teeth — I am trespassing.? At night the house was more than ever like a stranger’s. I wandered through the front room, the dining room, the parlour, hand on the wall for balance. My various possessions were floating in their own pools of shadow, denying my ownership of them. I looked them over with a burglar’s eye, deciding what might be worth the risk of stealing, what on the other hand I would leave behind. Robbers would take the obvious things — the silver teapot that was my grandmother’s, perhaps the hand-painted china. The television set. Nothing I really want. 75.The author could not fall asleep because ____.? A. it was too damp in the bedroom ? B. she had run out of sleeping pills ? C. she was in very poor health ? D. she felt very hungry ? 76.The author did not like the food in the refrigerator because it was NOT ____. A. fresh B. sufficient ? C. nutritious D. delicious ? 77.By “At night the house was more than ever like a stranger’s”(Line 1, Para. 4), the author probably means that ____.? A. the house was too dark at night ? B. ther were unfamiliar rooms in the house ? C. she felt much more lonely at night ? D. the furniture there didn’t belong to her ? TEXT D The chief problem in coping with foreign motorists is not so much remembering that they are different from yourself, but that they are enormously variable. Cross a frontier without adjusting and you can be in deep trouble.? One of the greatest gulfs separating the driving nations is the Atlantic Ocean. More precisely, it is the mental distance between the European and the American motorist, particularly the South American motorist. Compare, for example, an English driver at a set of traffic lights with a Brazilian.? Very rarely will an Englishman try to anticipate the green light by moving off prematurely. You will find the occasional sharpie who watches for the amber to come up on the adjacent set of lights. However, he will not go until he receives the lawful signal. Brazilians view the thing quite differently. If, in fact, they see traffic lights at all, they regard them as a kind of roadside decoration.? The natives of North America are much more disciplined. They demonstrate this in their addiction to driving in one lane and sticking to it — even if it means settling behind some great truck for many miles.? To prevent other drivers from falling into reckless ways, American motorists try always to stay close behind the vehicle in front which can make it impossible, when all the vehicles are moving at about 55 mph, to make a real lane change. European visitors are constantly falling into this trap. They return to the Old World still flapping their arms in frustration because while driving in the State in their car they kept failing to get off the highway when they wanted to and were swept along to the next city.? However, one nation above all others lives scrupulously by its traffic regulations — the Swiss. In
Switzerland, if you were simply to anticipate a traffic light, the chances are that the motorist behind you would take your number and report you to the police. What is more, the police would visit you; and you would be convicted.? The Swiss take their rules of the road so seriously that a diver can be ordered to appear in court and charged for speeding on hearsay alone, and very likely found guilty. There are slight regional variations among the French, German and Italian speaking areas, but it is generally safe to assume that any car bearing a CH sticker will be driven with a high degree of discipline.? 78.The fact that the Brazilians regard traffic lights as a kind of roadside decoration suggests that ____.? A. traffic lights are part of street scenery B. they simply ignore traffic lights ? C. they want to put them at roadsides D. there are very few traffic lights 79. The second and third paragraphs focus on the difference between ____.? A. the Atlantic Ocean and other oceans B. English drivers and American drivers ? C. European drivers and American drivers D. European drivers and South American drivers ? 80.The phrase “anticipate the green light”(Line 1, Para. 3) is closest in meaning to ____. A. wait for the green light to be on B. forbid others to move before the green light ? C. move off before the green light is on D. follow others when the green light is on SECTION B SKIMMING AND SCANNING ［5 MIN.］ In this section there are seven passages with a total of ten multiple-choice questions.

Now, go through TEXT E quickly and answer question 81.? Over the past decade, there have been a lot of changes in China’s economic policies. Like other developing countries which are attempting to become more export-orientated, China has started to set up free trade zones. These zones are called “Special Economic Zones”(SEZ’s) and feature various incentives designed to encourage foreign investment. What is the significance of these zones? Have they really played an important role in the development of significance of these zones? Have they really played an important role in the development of the economy of China? In this paper I first describe the background to the establishment of these zones. Then I describe some of the aims and characteristics of the SEZ’s. Lastly, I attempt to assess the significance of the SEZ’s in the development of the wider Chinese economy.

2004 年英语专业四级试题答案 录音文字材料、参考答案及详细解答听力原文? PART Ⅱ DICTATION ? MONEY Money is accepted across the world as payment for goods or services. People use money to buy food, clothes and hundreds of other things. In the past, many different things were used as money. People on Pacific islands once exchanged shells for goods. The Chinese used cloth and knives. In Africa, elephant tusks or salt were used. Even today, some people in Africa are still paid in salt. Coins were first invented by the Chinese. Originally, they were round pieces of metal with a hole in the center, so that a piece of string could keep them together. This made doing business much easier, but people still found coins inconvenient to carry when they wanted to buy something expensive. To solve this problem, the Chinese again came up with the solution. They began to use paper money for coins. Now paper notes are used throughout the world. Now you have two minutes to check through your work. PART Ⅲ LISTENING COMPREHENSION SECTION A STATEMENT ? 1. Lily studied drama at the university but she used to work as a policewoman.

SECTION C NEWS BROADCAST ? News Item One (18-19)? A court in Zimbabwe is due to deliver its verdict today in a trial of a journalist who works for the British newspaper The Guaidian. The trial is seen as a test case for the country’s strict new media laws. Andrew Meldrum, an American who’s lived in Zimbabwe for over twenty years is accused of publishing an untrue story and faces up to two years in prison if found guilty. A dozen other journalists have also been charged with offenses relating to the new laws. In court Mr. Meldrum’s defense argued that his story was published in Britain. It was beyond the jurisdiction of Zimbabwean laws.? News Item Two (20-21)? Kuala Lumpur-Afghanistan will play soccer at the Asian games. Mongolia’s withdrawal has given the war ? torn nation a confidence boost. The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) announced in a statement yesterday that Afghanistan would play in the under-twenty-three tournament at the games in Bussan. Afghanistan’s first match will be against Iran on September 28. The group’s other teams are Qatar and Lebanon. Afghanistan was a founding member of the confederation in the 1950s, before entering long periods of war and factional fighting. The country’s chaos was largely ended after US ? led forces overthrew the Taliban regime last year in response to the September 11th terrorist attacks in the United States. During the Soccer World Cup in June, the President of Afghanistan’s Football Aociation (AFA), Abdul Aleem-Kohistani said he hoped his country would be able to take part in the Asian game. News Item Three (22-23) The expected life span of Beijing residents has gone up to 75.5 years old, compared with 74.4 years old, a decade earlier. While the death rate of middleaged residents increased dramatically, according to recent official report. The report made public by the Beijing Disease Control and Prevention Center said the past mortality of people age between 35 to 54 years old had gone up 58.5% during the past ten years, from 158 people per 100,000 in 1991 to 251 people per 100,000 last year. Infant and maternal mortality rates went down 132% and 147% respectively. Health experts said chronic
non-infectious diseases were the main causes of death covering 60% of the total number of deaths. The male mortality is higher than that of females and the death rate among rural residents is higher than that of the urban ones.? News Item Four (24-25) Islamabad-Pakistani President, Purvez Musherof said yesterday there was no danger of the country going to war with neighboring India but that Pakistani forces would be ready to repel any aggression. There is no danger of war, Musherof told reporters in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad. We should have confidence in ourselves. We are not sitting idle. We are prepared for everything. There should not be any misunderstanding. Tensions were raised this week as the two accused each other of links to killings in the two countries. India suspects the two gunmen who killed twenty-eight at an Indian temple on Tuesday have links to Pakistan ? based Islamic militant groups. Pakistan denied any involvement in the temple massacre and police in Karachi said there were indications of India intelligence agents behind the murder of seven Christian charity workers in the city, but India rejects the charges yesterday.? This is the end of Listening Comprehension. Part I WRITING SECTION A COMPOSITION Letter Writing Will Not Be Killed Nowadays, young people choose to phone each other rather writing letters. But even if so, I still maintain that letter writing will never be killed by phones, though we have stepped into the Information Age. First, letters can express your subtle feelings. With the increase of the living pace of modern society, we find that there is a lack of communication now. Sometimes when you are speaking to someone that you care and love on the phone, you are so shy that it’s too hard to express any of your feelings towards him/her. Your throat seems to be blocked! At this time, letters will help. Without any embarrassment, you can just write down your deep concern and love on a piece of paper. When you drop the letter into the pillar-box, you will feel what he/she will receive is not only a letter, but also your deepest love. Secondly, letters can be kept as a record of memory, while phones cannot. Just imagine, when you open an old box of letters and read them years later, a lot of beautiful and indelible memories will be brought back to you. What an irreplaceable feeling it is! And I believe, this feeling is something that you can definitely never experience through several phone calls. All in all, letter writing will absolutely survive and even thrive in the Information Age. Phones can never kill it, neither will anything. SECTION B NOTE WRITING May 9th, 2004 Dear Jane, I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t do very well in the final exam and I know you must be very unhappy about it. But please don’t lose heart, since you have done your best. I think what you need is to sum up your mistakes and make good preparation for next time. I believe you’ll succeed. Good luck! Yours sincerely, Candy
