Part Ⅰ Reading Comprehension(共20小题，每小题2分，共40分)
Directions: In this part there are four passages. Each passage is followed by four comprehension questions. Read the passage and answer the questions. Then mark your answer on the answer sheet.
Questions l～5 are based on the following passage.
Sometimes, people simply do not realize they are being ill mannered. Take Ted, for example. He prides himself on speaking his mind, and has something to say on everything. But his frankness is often extremely embarrassing.
He is incapable of saying, “I thought that last advertising campaign had a lot of good ideas in it, but perhaps next time we could give the copy more vitality (活力) .” Instead, he could say, “That campaign was a disaster. A child of three could have done better!”
The fact that he is often right does not help. Other employees dislike his manner even more, he is too sensitive to notice.
Another character among the list of ill-mannered employees is Sally, who seems to regard just being at work as a severe punishment. Everything is done unwillingly. Asking her to do a task beyond her basic job description is often not worth the trouble. It will be done, but half-heartedly.
Fergus is just the opposite. He shows an over-familiarity to his boss. When an important visitor is shown into the manager’s office, Fergus cannot take the hint and leave. Instead he will attempt to take part in the conversation, declaring, “You can talk in font of me. Henry and I don’t have many secrets, do we? ” Over the years Pergus has fallen behind his former equals. But he seeks to maintain the same close relationship that he imagines existed in their younger days.

Questions 6～10 are based on the following passage.
A lot of real businesses are focusing on the Internet as a way of building sales, but some people with nothing to sell are creating their own Web sites to announce wedding plans, show off pictures of their kids or just have communication. It’s not as hard as you think and it can be a lot of fun. Carol Masser has some tips on building you own Web site. “Like my living room, or my study, it’s where I put, mementos (纪念品), collectibles (收藏物), books and paintings and things that I would like to show to my friends and relatives.”
Renne Tubegeihan uses his own Web site to invite people into his virtual home. While John Marashod designed his own Web site to attract other parents of disabled children. “I’d say the goal of this site is to basically link parents in the same situation with disabled children and exchange ideas with one another.”
Renne and John are part of a growing number of surfers who have established their own Web site. If you want to weave a Web yourself, it’s easier than you think. The first step is to get your own Web address. They’re sold by Web service providers like Microsoft, AT&T, and other local companies. You are expected to pay between 15 and 25 dollars every month to rent space for your site. But some companies, like Tripod and Geocities, issue the site for free if you agree to allow their advertising on your page.
Before you get into setting up your own Web site, you should go around and do some surfing and check out other sites. Once you know what you want to do, it’s time to build. If you just want the basics, you can use Microsoft’s free Internet Assistant; or if you want to get a little fancier, you can by a software program like Adobe Page Mill for 100 dollars or Microsoft’s FrontPage Editor for 150 dollars.
