Each passage is followed by somequestions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choicesmarked A), B), C), and D). You should decide on the best choice and mark thecorresponding letter.    Passage One    Questions 1 to 5 are based on the followingpassage.    Clothes playtwo major roles: functional and decorational. When we buy clothes, there aremore factors to take into consideration: size, price and durability.    Functionalconsiderations in buying clothes are obvious because we wear different clothesfor different seasons and different occasions. We rule out any possibility ofbuying an article unless it fits us perfectly.      For most of us, price anddurability still greatly influence our buying. But as people’s pockets becomemore and more bulging(胀大)nowadays, these two factors carry less and less weight when people make theirdecisions at a fashion shop.    Perhaps themost difficult decision to make in buying a piece of clothing is about itsstyle on esthetical (审美学的)grounds; its shape, its color ,the texture of its material, and its Workmanship. As what we wear tellsstories about us, showing to others what kind of people we are and what kind oftaste we have, we cannot afford to be careless about this. We try a coat on andstand before a mirror, turning this way and that, imaging how others wouldthink of us in it. When finally we decided to take it, it is because we areconvinced that we have properly exercised our taste in addition to otherpractical considerations.    1.

They claim to be able to classify the nation’s people by fridgecontents.    They say that the people can be separated intofive categories: “nutrition nerds (no social sense)”, “food faddies (whatever’sin style)”, “martyr mums”, “fast food fanatics” and “restaurant regulars”.    “Nutritionnerds” care much about what they put into their bodies. Their fridges arestocked with fruit, vegetables and healthy meat.    Peoplein this category tend to be highly organized and usually work in law oraccountancy. The vast majority are single, but if they have a partner, thatperson will be similar.    A fridge full of vitamins-enriched juicesimplies its owner works in media or fashion. They tend not to eat the foodsthey buy. Known as the “food faddies”, they just want to be seen as purchasingthe latest important things.    Afridge filled with everything from steak to frozen fish suggests the “martyrmums”. Her fridge tends to be stocked with every kind of product, except whatshe herself would want. This fridge hints at difficulty balancing family andwork life.    “Fastfood fanatics” always buy mineral water or soda pop; the nearest they will getto fresh fruit is tomato sauce. Their fridges hint at someone who works hardand plays hard. Also, someone who is not into long term planning.    Finally,a fridge filled with nothing more than a bottle of white wine and some sparkingmineral water implies an owner who is single, lives in a big city and enjoysthe finer things in life. The fridge is empty because this person regularlyeats in restaurants.    6.

It can be long or short,formal or informal, simple or complicated, and verbal or written. Without acontract or agreement to bind the contracting parties, any internationalbusiness or transaction would be impossible. Long ago, people exchangedpromises in making bargains and binding the conduct of others. This exchange ofpromises came to be known as “agreement” and became more and more important in thefield of business. A promise or agreement is reached as a result of the processof offer and acceptance. When an agreement is reached, a contract is formed.Once a contract is officially signed by the concerned parties, it creates legalobligations in the sense of law.    Acontract is the only document between the parties to which they may refer forclarification of mutual responsibilities. It should not be viewed as merely adocument that initiates transaction and then filed and forgotten by thecontracting parties. It must be drafted with an awareness of the background ofthe law in which the transaction takes place. It is proper to obtain legaladvice as to the best of set of contractual terms appropriated to the productand type of business.    Thoughmost of the contracts have many provisions (条款) in common, each is different from the othersowing to the nature of the goods. Whether we are dealing with a long orpreprinted form of the contract, there are certain key provisions that everycontract should contain to avoid ambiguity (迷糊) and possible future conflicts. Whether toinclude other specific provisions depends on the type of goods, shipping andinsurance complexities, and degree of trust and mutual confidence existingbetween the buyer and seller.    10.
