  Passage Two

  Part Ⅱ        Listening Comprehension          (30 minutes)

  The thought of having no sleep for 24 hours or more isn't a pleasant one for most people. The amount of sleep that each person needs varies. In general, each of us needs about 8 hours of sleep each day to keep us healthy and happy. Some people, however, can get by with just a few hours of sleep at night。

  Section A

  It doesn't matter when or how much a person sleeps. But everyone needs some rest to stay alive. Few doctors would have thought that there might be an exception to this. Sleep is, after all, a very basic need. But a man named Al Herpin turned out to be a real exception, for supposedly, he never slept!

  Directions: In this section, you will hear 8 short conversations and 2 long conversations. At the end of each conversation, one or more questions will be asked about what was said. Both the conversation and the questions will be spoken only once. After each question there will be a pause. During the pause, you must read the four choices marked A), B), C) and D), and decide which is the best answer. Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 1 with a single line through the centre。

  Al Herpin was 90 years old when doctors came to his home in New Jersy. They hoped to challenge the claim that he never slept. But they were surprised. Though they watched him every hour of the day, they never saw Herpin sleeping. He did not even own a bed. He never needed one。

  1. W: I can’t seem to reach the tea at the back of the cupboard。

澳门皇家赌场,  The closest that Herpin came to resting was to sit in a rocking chair and read a half dozen newspapers. His doctors were puzzled by the strange case of permanent sleeplessness. Herpin offered the only clue to his condition. He remembered some talk about his mother having been injured several days before he had been born. Herpin died at the age of 94, never, it seems, having slept at all。

  M: Oh… Why don’t you use the ladder? You might strain your shoulder。

  19. What is taken for granted by most people?

  Q: What does the man suggest the woman do?

  20. What do doctors think of Al Herpin's case?

  2. W: Since it’s raining so hard, let’s go and see the new exhibits。

  21. What could have accounted for Al Herpin's sleeplessness?

  M: That’s a good idea. Mary Johnson is one of my favorite painters。

  Q: Where does the conversation most probably take place?

  3. M: I hear the students gave the new teacher an unfair evaluation。

  W: It depends on which student you are talking about。

  Q: What does the woman imply?

  4. W: It must have taken you a long time to fix up all these book shelves。

  M: It wasn’t too bad. I got Doris to do some of them。

  Q: What does the man mean?

  5. W: Rod, I hear you’ll be leaving at the end of this month. Is it true?

  M: Yeah. I’ve been offered a much better position with another firm. I’d be a fool to turn it down。

  Q: Why is the man quitting his job?

  6. W: I honestly don’t want to continue the gardening tomorrow, Tony?

  M: Neither do I. But I think we should get it over with this weekend。

  Q: What does the man mean?

  7. W: You’ve already furnished your apartment?

  M: I found some used furniture that was dirt cheap。

  Q: What do we learn from the conversation?

  8. W: Has the mechanic called the bus repairers?

  M: Not yet .I’ll let you know when he calls。

  Q: What do we learn from the conversation?

  Questions 9 to 11 are based on the conversation you have just heard。

  Conversation one

  M: Hello. Matt Ellis speaking。

  W: Hello, Dr. Ellis, my name’s Pan Johnson. My roommate, Janet Holmes, wanted me to call you。

  M: Janet Holmes? Oh, that’s right. She’s in my Shakespearean English class. Has anything happened to her?

  W: Nothing, it’s just that she submitted a job application yesterday and the company asked her in for an interview today. She’s afraid she won’t be able to attend your class this afternoon though. I’m calling to see whether it would be OK if I gave you her essay. Janet said it’s due today。

  M: Certainly, that would be fine. Uh, you can either drop it off at my class or bring it to my office。

  W: Would it be all right to come by your office around 4:00? I’m afraid I can’t come any earlier because I have three classes this afternoon。

  M: Uh, I won’t be here when you come. I’m supposed to be at a meeting from 3:00 to 6:00, but how about leaving it with my secretary? She usually stays until 5:00.

  W: Fine, please tell her I’ll be there at 4:00. And Dr. Ellis, one more thing, could you tell me where your office is? Janet told me where your class is, but she didn’t give me directions to your office。

  M: Well, I’m in Room 302 of the Gregory Building. I’ll tell my secretary to put the paper in my mail box, and I’ll get it when I return。

  W: I sure appreciate it. Goodbye, Dr. Ellis。

  M: Goodbye, Ms. Johnson。

  Questions 9 to 11 are based on the conversation you have just heard。

  9. Why couldn’t the woman’s roommate attend the Shakespearean English class that afternoon?
