Yukio Edano, Japan's chief government spokesman also stated that Japan is now facing acute power shortages causing difficulty shifting products around the country. The impact from power outages is likely to be significant as it is making it difficult for some of the country's biggest exporters, such as carmakers and electronics firms, to restart production at their factories, he said.
Separately, Japanese nuclear technicians have stopped the outflow of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant. After trying and failing several times to stem the leak since it was discovered, Tokyo Electric Power engineers succeeded by injecting sodium silicate, or liquid glass, into the ground near a seaside "pit" from which the highly contaminated water had been seeping.
Residents have been evacuated from a 20 km zone around Tepco's Daiichi nuclear plant in Fukushima as well as from a 10 km zone around Fukushima Daini, another reactor in the area that was more lightly damaged.
Meanwhile, foreign aid has been pouring into Japan to deal with the crisis, including substantial "on the ground" support, from China. "China is also a country prone to earthquake disasters, and we fully empathize with how they feel now," said Premier Wen Jiabao.
Which parts of Japan have been economically affected by the earthquake?
A The country's north-east coast region.
B All over.
C It doesn't say.
D Fukushima Daini.
Before they fixed the problem, what was happening to the highly contaminated water in Fukushima?
A It had been flowing into the ocean.
B It had been seeping into a pit.
C Actually they haven't fixed the problem yet.
D It had become clear automatically.
Wen Jiabao said that "we fully empathize with how they feel now", this means:
A The people in China now feel very sad.
B The people in China now feel very happy.
C The people in China know how the people in Japan are now feeling.
D The people in China know it doesn't matter.
According to Japan's chief government spokesman, Japan ______.
A is capable of solving the problem quickly
B doesn't need foreign aid
C is not influenced by the earthquake deeply
D is facing serious power shortages
The best title for this passage might be ______.
A How to Deal with Earthquake
B Japanese Try Their Best to Stem the Leak
C Japan's Quake Rebuilding to Take a Long Time
D The Importance of Nuclear Power
In ancient times the most important examinations were spoken, not written. In the schools of ancient Greece and Rome, testing usually consisted of saying poetry aloud or giving speeches.
In the European universities of the Middle Ages, students who were working for advanced degrees had to discuss questions in their field of study with people who had made a special study of the subject. This custom exists today as part of the process of testing candidates (考生) for the doctor's degree,
Generally, however, modern examinations are written. The written examination, where all students are tested on the same questions, was probably not known until the nineteenth century. Perhaps it came into existence with the great increase in population and the development of modern industry. A room full of candidates for a state examination, timed exactly by electric clocks and carefully watched over by managers, resembles a group of workers at an automobile factory. Certainly, during examinations teachers and students are expected to act like machines.
One type of test is sometimes called an objective (客观) test. It is intended to deal with facts, not personal opinions. To make up an objective test the teacher writes a series of questions, each of which has only one correct answer.. Along with each question the teacher writes the correct answer and also three statements that look like answers to students who have not learned the material properly.
In the Middle Ages students ______.
A took objective tests
B were timed by electric clocks
C specialized in one subject
D never wrote exams
The main idea of Paragraph 3 is that ______ .
A workers now take examinations
B the population has grown
C there are only written exams today
D examinations are now written and timed
The kind of exams where students must select answers is ______.
Modern industry must have developed ______.
A before the Middle Ages
B in Greece or Rome
C around the 19th century
D machines to take tests
It may be concluded that testing ______.
A should test only opinions
B has changed since the Middle Ages
C should always be written
D is given only in factories
