The price of hotels in Britain is going up 11 at any time since the war. There are a number of reasons for this but the 12 all is the Government’s economic policy. Managers in factories see 13 so they are attracted to the idea of owning 14 business. 15 Britain’s weather is often disappointing， the tourist industry is growing. Many people 16 like to combine a 17 holiday with the opportunity of improving their English. It is therefore not surprising that businessmen are buying hotels.

Ⅲ。 Reading Comprehension （30 points， 2 points for each）
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.
Sport is not only physically challenging， but it can also be mentally challenging. Criticism from coaches， parents， and other teammates， as well as pressure to win can create an excessive amount of anxiety or stress for young athletes（运动员）。 ①Stress can be physical， emotional， or psychological and research has indicated that it can lead to burnout. Burnout has been described as dropping or quitting of an activity that was at one time enjoyable.
The early years of development are critical years for learning about oneself. ②The sport setting is one where valuable experiences can take place. Young athletes can， for example， learn how to cooperate with others， make friends， and gain other social skills that will be used throughout their lives. Coaches and parents should be aware， at all times， that ③their feedback to youngsters can greatly affect their children. Youngsters may take their parents‘ and coaches’ criticisms to heart and find a flaw （缺陷） in themselves.
Coaches and parents should also be cautious that youth sport participation does not become work for children. The outcome of the game should not be more important than the process of learning the sport and other life lessons. In today‘s youth sport setting. Young athletes may be worrying more about who will win instead of enjoying themselves and the sport. ④Following a game many parents and coaches focus on the outcome and find fault with youngsters’ performances. Positive reinforcement should be provided regardless of the outcome. Research indicates that ⑤positive reinforcement motivates and has a greater effect on learning than criticism. Again， criticism can create high levels of stress， Which can lead to burnout.

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.
Television has opened windows in everybody’s life. ①Young men will never again go to war as they did in 1914. Millions of people now have seen the effects of a battle. And the result has been a general dislike of war， and perhaps more interest in helping those who suffer from all the terrible things that have been shown on the screen.
②Television has also changed politics. The most distant area can now follow state affairs， see and hear the politicians before an election. Better informed， people are more likely to vote， and so to make their opinion count.
Unfortunately， television’s influence has been extremely harmful to the young. Children do not have enough experience to realize that TV shows present an unreal world; that ③TV advertisements lie to sell products that are sometimes bad or useless. ④They believe that the violence they see is normal and acceptable. All educators agree that the “television generations” are more violent than their parents and grandparents.
Also， the young are less patient. Used to TV shows， where everything is quick and interesting， ④they do not have the patience to read an article without pictures; to read a book that requires thinking; to listen to a teacher who doesn’t do funny things like the people on children’s programs.

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.
Every profession or trade， every art， and every science has its technical vocabulary. Different occupations， however， differ widely in the character of their special vocabularies. In trades and handicrafts， and other vocations， like farming and fishery， that have occupied great numbers of men from remote times， the technical vocabulary， is very old. ①It consists largely of native words， or of borrowed words that have worked themselves into the very fibre of our language. ②Hence， though highly technical in many particulars， these vocabularies are more familiar in sound， and more generally understood， than most other technicalities. The special dialects of law， medicine， divinity， and philosophy have also， in their older strata， become pretty familiar to cultivated persons and have contributed much to the popular vocabulary. Yet every vocation still possesses a large body of technical terms that remain essentially foreign， even to educated speech. And the proportion has been much increased in the last fifty years， particularly in the various departments of natural and political science and in the mechanic arts. Here new terms are coined with the greatest freedom， and abandoned with indifference when they have served their turn. Most of the new coinages are confined to special discussions， and seldom get into general literature or conversation. Yet no profession is nowadays， as all professions once were， a close guild. The lawyer， the physician， the man of science， the divine， associated freely with his fellow-creatures， and does not meet them in a merely professional way. Furthermore， what is called “popular science” makes everybody acquainted with modern views and recent discoveries. ③Any important experiment， though made in a remote or provincial laboratory， is at once reported in the newspapers， and everybody is soon talking about it - as in the case of the Roentgen rays and wireless telegraphy. Thus our common speech is always taking up new technical terms and making them commonplace.
31. Special words used in technical discussion ____.
A. never last long
B. are considered artificial language speech
C. should be confined to scientific fields
D. may become part of common speech

A. an educated person would be expected to know most technical terms
B. everyone is interested in scientific findings
C. the average man often uses in his own vocabulary what was once technical language not meant for him
