Part Ⅲ.Reading Comprehension (2.5 points each, 50 points in all)
Directions: There are 4 tasks for you to fulfill. You should read the passages below carefully and do the tasks as you are instructed.
Directions: After reading the following passage, you will find 5 questions or unfinished statements (No.46 to No.50). For each question or statement there are 4 choices marked A, B, C and D. You should make the correct choice and write the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.
Questions 46 to 50 are based on the following passage:
(Nearly all “speed reading” courses have a “pacing” element—some timing device which lets the student know how many words a minute he is reading. )You can do this simply by looking at your watch every 5 or 10 minutes and noting down the page number you have reached. Check the average number of words per page for the particular book you are reading. How do you know when 5 minutes has passed on your watch if you are busy reading the book? Well, this is difficult at first. A friend can help by timing you over a set period, or you can read within hearing distance of a public clock which strikes the quarter hours. Pace yourself every three or four days, always with the same kind of easy, general interest books. You should soon notice your accustomed w.p.m.rate creeping up.
