Directions: After reading the following passage, you will find 5 questions or unfinished statements, numbered 36 to 40. For each question or statement there are 4 choices marked
D ). You should make the correct choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.
Every city has its museums and you would be forgiven for thinking they are rather boring. In reality nothing could be further from the truth — particularly when you visit the Manchester Museum in the city of the same name.
In fact if you are looking for somewhere to take the kids for the day, this is the ideal place to try. All you have to do is mention the words mummies (木乃伊) and dinosaurs to them and they are guaranteed to want to find out more!
While the museum does all it can to draw in the attention of kids of all ages, it does a pretty good job at fascinating the adults as well. There is a whole section about Ancient Egypt (where you will find the mummies) which is rich in history and incredible information. The displays even go back as far as prehistoric (史前的) Egypt.
You might also be surprised to know that the Manchester Museum is home to more than 17,000 different coins. These are obviously not the kind of coins we use today, but rather those that are several centuries old — if not thousands of years old in many cases. Once again this opens up a world onto another time altogether. It's small wonder that so many adults as well as kids find this museum wonderfully fascinating on so many different levels.
This museum lets you see some live animals as well, which gives you another reason to bring the whole family along for a great learning experience. The Manchester Museum has a vivarium (植物园) you can visit, which is essentially an enclosed area that is ideally kept under the right conditions for the animals that live inside it.
In truth the Manchester Museum is just one of the amazing experiences you can enjoy once you arrive in the city. Once you have booked your flights to Manchester you can look forward to visiting all the notable sights that Manchester has to offer.
What the museum have to attract the children most are ______.
A the mummies and coins
B the mummies and vivarium
C the mummies and dinosaurs
D the coins and vivarium
How many coins are put in this museum?
According to the passage, what kind of coins is collected to this museum?
A Coins we use today.
B Coins we use today and those of centuries old.
C Coins of centuries and thousands of years old.
D Coins that do not exist in the real world.
What kind of things can live in the vivarium?
A Live animals and plants.
B Mummies and dinosaurs.
C Only plants.
D The guide and the live animals.
What should you do if you wants to visit all the notable sights that Manchester has to offer?
A Buy the tickets.
B Book the flights.
C Live near the place.
D Buy a map of the city.
The appeal of advertising to buying motives can have both negative and positive effects. Consumers may be convinced to buy a product of poor quality or high price because of an advertisement. For example, some advertisers have appealed to people's desire for better fuel economy for their cars by advertising automotive products that improve gasoline mileage. Some of the products work. Others are worthless and a waste of consumers' money.
Sometimes advertising is intentionally misleading. A few years ago, a brand of bread was offered to dieters (节食者) with the message that there were fewer calories (热量单位， 卡路里) in every slice. It turned out that the bread was not dietetic (适合节食的), but just regular bread. There were fewer calories because it was sliced very thin, but there were the same number of calories in every loaf.
On the positive side, emotional appeals may respond to a consumer's real concerns, considering fire insurance. Fire insurance may be sold by appealing to fear of loss. But fear of loss is the real reason for fire insurance. The security of knowing that property is protected by insurance makes the purchase of fire insurance a worthwhile investment for most people. If consumers consider the quality of the insurance plans as well as the message in the ads, they will benefit from the advertising.
Each consumer must evaluate her or his own situation. Are the benefits of the product important enough to justify buying it? Advertising is intended to 'appeal to consumers, but it does not force them to buy the product. Consumers still control the final buying decision.
Advertising can persuade the consumer to buy worthless products by ______.
A stressing their high quality
B convincing him/her of their low price
C maintaining a balance between quality and price
D appealing to his/her buying motives
The reason why the bread advertisement is misleading is that ______.
A thin slices of bread could contain less calories
B the loaf was cut into regular slices
C the bread was not genuine bread
D the total number of calories in the loaf remained the same
The passage tells us that ______.
A sometimes advertisements really sell what the consumer needs
B advertisements occasionally force people into buying things they don't need
C the buying motives of consumers are controlled by advertisements
D fire insurance is seldom a worthwhile investment
It can be inferred from the passage that a smart consumer should ______.
A think carefully about the benefits described in the advertisements
B guard against the deceiving nature of advertisements
C be familiar with various advertising strategies
D avoid buying products that have strong emotional appeal
The passage is mainly about ______.
A how to make a wise buying decision
B ways to protect the interests of the consumer
C the positive and negative aspects of advertising
D the function of advertisements in promoting sales

Dear Ms Montague,
