  Passage 1

  On Wednesday afternoons Annie took the bus into Cressley to shop in the market. For an hour or so she would walk up and down between the stalls, looking at everything, buying here and there, and keeping a sharp lookout for the bargains that were sometimes to be had. And then, with all the things she needed bought, she would leave the market for the streets of the town to spend another hour in the way she liked best: looking in furniture-shop windows. There were furniture shops of all kinds in Cressley, from those where you had to stretch your neck to see the prices on the tickets to others where you could hardly see the furniture itself for the many notices offering goods at prices almost too tempting to be true.

  One Wednesday she found a new shop full of the most delightful things, with a notice inviting anyone to walk in and look around without feeling they had to buy something. Annie hesitated for a moment before stepping through the doorway where, almost at once, she stopped delighted before a green armchair. There was a card on the chair which said: “This fine chair is yours for less than a pound a week,” and very small at the bottom, “Cash price eighty-nine pounds fifty.” A pound a week... Why, she could almost pay that out of her housekeeping money and never miss it!

  A voice at her shoulder made her jump. “Can I help you, Madam?” She looked round at the assistant who had come softly to her side.

  “Oh, well, no,” she said, “I was just looking.”

  “We’ve chairs of all kinds in the showroom. If you’ll just come up you will find something to suit you...”

  Annie, although a little worried at the thought of being persuaded to buy something, couldn’t think of how to refuse. She was already being led to the back of the shop and up a few wide steps.

  31. When she was doing her weekly shopping in the market, Annie was ______.

  A. impatient

  B. cheerful

  C. selective

  D. doubtful

  32. What did Annie particularly enjoy doing in Cressley?

  A. Hunting for bargains.

  B. Wandering round the market.

  C. Going into different shops.

  D. Window-shopping.

  33. On this particular Wednesday, Annie discovered ______.

  A. a furniture shop she had not seen before

  B. a self-service furniture shop

  C. a notice about a furniture sale

  D. an extra pound to spend

  34. Annie stopped when she was inside the shop because she saw ______.

  A. no shop assistant

  B. a piece of furniture

  C. a notice

  D. a shop assistant

  35. When the shop assistant led Annie to the back of the shop, she followed him .

  A. willingly

  B. angrily

  C. happily

  D. unconsciously

  Passage 2

  There are two types of people in the world. Although they have equal degrees of health and wealth and the other comforts of life, one becomes happy while the other becomes miserable. This arises from the different ways in which they consider things, persons, and events, and the resulting effects upon their minds.

  The people who are to be happy fix their attention on the conveniences of things, the pleasant parts of conversations, the well-prepared dishes, the goodness of the wines, the fine weather. They enjoy all the cheerful things. Those who are to be unhappy think and speak only of the contrary things. Therefore, they are continually discontented. By their remarks, they sour the pleasures of society, offend many people, and make themselves disagreeable everywhere. If this turn of mind were founded in nature, such unhappy persons would be more to be pitied. The tendency to criticize and be disgusted is perhaps taken up originally by imitation. It grows into a habit, unknown to its possessors. The habit may be strong, but it may be cured when those who have it are convinced of its bad effects on their interests and tastes. I hope this little warning may help them change this habit.

  Although in fact it is chiefly an act of the imagination, it has serious consequences in life, since it brings on deep sorrow and bad luck. Those people offend many others, nobody loves them, and no one treats them with more than the most common politeness and respect, and scarcely that. This frequently puts them in bad temper and draws them into arguments. If they aim at obtaining some advantage in rank or fortune, nobody wishes them success. Nor will anyone stir a step or speak a word to favor their hopes. If they bring on themselves public disapproval, no one will defend or excuse them, and many will join to criticize their misconduct. These people should change this bad habit. If they do not, it will be good for others to avoid any contact with them. Otherwise, it can be disagreeable and sometimes very inconvenient, especially when one becomes mixed up in their quarrels.

  36. People who are unhappy ______.

  A. always consider things differently from others

  B. usually are influenced by the results of certain things

  C. can discover the unpleasant part of certain things

  D. usually have a fault-finding habit

  37. The underlined phrase “sour the pleasures of society” (Line 8) most nearly means______.

  A. enjoy the pleasures of society

  B. aren’t content with the pleasures of society

  C. have a good taste to the pleasures of society

  D. feel uncomfortable with the pleasures of society

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

  A. We should pity all such unhappy people.

  B. Such unhappy people are critical about everything.

  C. If such unhappy people recognize the bad effects of the habit on themselves, they may get rid of it.

  D. Such unhappy people are also not content with themselves.

  39. The underlined part “scarcely that” (Line 17) means ______.

  A. just like that

  B. almost not like that

  C. more than that

  D. not at all like that

  40. If such unhappy persons don’t change their bad behavior, the author’s solution to the problem is that ______.

  A. people should avoid contact with them

  B. people should criticize their misconduct

  C. people should help them recognize the bad effects of the habit

  D. people should show no respect and politeness to them
