The old.fashioned general store is fast disappearin9.This is，perhaps，a pity，because shopping today seems to lack that personal element which existed when the shopkeeper knew all his regular customers personally.He could，for instance，remember which brand of tea Mrs·Smith usually bought or what sort of washing powder Mrs.Jones preferred.Not only was the shop a center of buying and sellin9，but a social meeting place.
A prosperous general store might have employed four or five assistants，and SO there were very few Dmblems in management as far as the staff were concerned.But now that the supermarket has replaced the general store，the job of the manager has changed completely.The modern supermarket manager has to cope with a staff of as many as a hundred，apart from all the other everyday problems of running a large business.Every morning the manager must，like the commander of an army division.carry out an inspection of his store to make sure that everything is ready for the business of the day.He must see that everything is running smoothly.He will have to give advice and make decisions as problems arise;and he must know how to get his huge staff to work efficiently with their respective responsibilities.No matter what he has to do throughout the day，however，the supermarket manager must be ready for any emergency that may arise.They say in the trade that you are not really an experienced supermarket manager until you have dealt with a flood.a fire，a birth and a death in your store.

We have recently heard a great deal about the bad effects of computers on our social and economic institutions. In industry，computers mean automation， and automation means unemployment.The United States.with its extravagant investment in computers，is plagued(使得灾祸，烦恼)by unemployment for unskilled workers.Already computers have begun to displace workers whose tasks are simple.The variety of jobs，formerly done only by humans，that the machine can perform more rapidly，accurately，and economically，increases with each new generation of computers.If we follow this trend，say the pessimists(悲观主义者)，we are faced with the prospect of mass unemployment for all but a handful of highly trained，highly intelligent
professionals.who will then be more influential and overworked than they are now.Only recently a distinguished English physicist predicted that within twenty years electronic engineers might have to become conscientious objectors in order to prevent these machines from wrecking out(使遭难，破 坏)social and economic institutions.
What can we do about it?It is foolish to dream of reversing history.We cannot pass laws forbidding the advancement of science and technology.The computing machines are here.and they will grow because engineers want to build them，soldiers want to enlist them in new weapon systems and politicians want their help in the process of government.In short，they will flourish because they enable US to accomplish tasks that could never before have been undeflaken，no matter how many
unskilled laborers we might have set to work.Computers will continue to amplify our intelligence for just the same reason that engines continue to amplify our muscles.The question we must ask is not whether we shall have computers or not have computers，but rather，since.we are going to have them，how we can make the most humane and intelligent use of them.
21.The author insists that __________ .
A.computers will continue to have bad effects on our social and economic institutions

A library is more than just a place where books are stored.A library is a source of information. That information may come from books(fiction，nonfiction，or reference books)，from periodicals (newspapers，magazines，and journals)，from audi0—visual materials(records，cassettes，microfilm，video tapes，etc.)，or even from a computer terminal.
Students go to libraries to study and to write research papers.The periodicals room of a university library is where foreign students often find newspapers and magazines from their countries。
In the reference room，they can find catalogs from many universities in the U.S.and other countries.If you are buying a used car.the reference librarian can show you the Blue Book，which lists the prices of new and used cars.People who need information in a hurry can telephone the reference librarian at many libraries.
There are as many different library services as there are types of people who use them.Children’s libraries provide materials for young readers.They sometimes have story tellers who read stories to groups of children.and a few have computers for the children to play with.Music lovers can listen to recordings of their favorite musicians in music libraries.Some libraries offer special
services for blind people，such as books in Braille，“talking”books，and Kurzweil Reading Machines.
Libraries provide entertainment as well as information.Novels and short stories from a library’s fiction collection are a good source of enjoyable reading practice.Public libraries often sponsor lectures on topics of interest to members of the community，and a few even offer concerts and films.

51.Perhaps the fact that many of these first studies considered only algae(水藻)of a size that could be collected in a net (net phytoplankton), a practice that overlooked the smaller phytoplankton(浮游植物群落)that we now know grazers are most likely to feed on, led to a de-emphasis of the role of grazers in subsequent research.
52.Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write a composition on the topic" An Increasing Number of People are Studying for Master Degrees" .You should write at least 120 words, and base your composition on the outline given in Chinese below:
答案：Need a master degree, or not
Nowadays, most people want to enter graduate school.In fact, this desire has grown considerably in the past few years, Students struggle to pass the graduate school entrance exam, to survive the program,and find a job at the end of it. They read many exam preparation books. They may also attend special"exam preparation" seminars and courses.There are some reasons for such phenomenon.
First is the general perception that a graduate school diploma, a master's degree, is needed for getting a better job.Second is that some students might not be sure what they want to do, and a few more years inside the courtyards of academic seems desirable.
In my opinion, this is not reasonable, I don't deny that a few passed and went on, but the majority failed and finally wiped away their valuable times.So we don't have to study for the master degree.Never forget the old saying:every road leads to Rome!
