1、- We'd like two Cokes, please.- _________
A：Small, medium or large?
相对其他题型而言，计算类是四级听力中的基础题(可分为计算题、细节辨认题、等值转换题)，也应该是你的抢分题，故不可“大意失荆州”。地球人都知道四级中听力的计算类不是在考咱们连小学生一年级都会做的加减乘除，测评大家的IQ，醉翁之意不在酒，而是在考大家对英语听力的反应速度，只要意识到这一点，现在你就要学会如何运用技巧来所谓的“抓鱼”了——核心在于抓住关键的细节所在之处，in a other word，你要知道根据题意该听什么，怎么把它去听准。
B：You must pay first.
M: When does the next shuttle bus leave?
D：You are welcome.
W: You have just missed one by 20 minutes. We have a bus every 45 minutes, so you’ll have to wait for a while.
Q: How long does the man need to wait for the next bus?
2、- I am terribly sorry! I broke the vase. - _________
A) 25 minutes B) 65 minutes
A：I don't want it.
C) 20 minutes D) 45 minutes
【解析】 当你看见这四个选项，不难发现这一题是在考与时间有关的内容，并且从选项当中可以推测到是考时间的加减关系，因为其中三个选项都是正确答案的干扰选项，说到这里，你就要做好充分的思想准备。原文中除了听清20和45两个数字之外，重要的是明白其之间的联系，通过missed知道已经错过，而介词“by”专门用在计算题表差额；通过every知道每辆车之间45分钟，问的是wait for the next bus 还得等多长时间，很清楚这里是减法的计算关系，所以选择A。
C：You meant to do it.
D：You buy one for me.
M: I wonder if Jack will come here by 11 o’clock.
W: His wife said he left home at 10:30, so he should be here at 11:20 at the latest.

1、 Tom arrived at the bus station quite early for Paris bus. The bus for Paris would not leave until five to twelve. He saw a lot of people waiting in the station. Some were standing in line, others were walking around. There was a group of schoolgirls. Their teacher was trying to keep them in line. Tom looked around, but there was no place for him to sit.
4. A) 5:00 B) 5:15 C) 5:30 D) 5:45
He walked into the station cafe. He looked up at the clock there. It was only twenty to twelve. He found a seat and sat down before a large mirror(镜子) on the wall. Just then, Mike, one of Tom's workmates came in and sat with Tom.
5. A) in 5 minutes B) in 10 minutes
"What time is your bus?" asked Mike. "There's plenty(充裕) of time yet" answered Tom.
C) in 15 minutes D) in 25 minutes
"Well, I'll get you some more tea then" said Mike.
They talked while drinking. Then Tom looked at the clock again. "Oh! It's going backward" he cried. "A few minutes ago it was twenty to twelve, and now it's half past eleven."
M: Tom must be over twenty now.
"You're looking at the clock in the mirror." said Mike. Tom was so sad. The next bus was not to leave for another hour. Since then Tom has never liked mirrors.
W: I think so, when I left Paris six years ago, he was already fifteen.
(1)、Tom went into the station cafe because Mike asked him to have a cup of tea.
Q: How old is Tom now?
2. 【选B】原文重现 1997.1
M: What’s the time for departure?
W: 5:30. That only leaves us 15 minutes to go through the customs and check our baggage.
(2)、Tom and Mike talked while drinking.
Q: At what time did the conversation take place?
W: Good evening , sir. Why not try our dry beer. Two dollars for each bottle, and twenty for a dozen.
M: Well, a dozen is too much for me. Give me a half.
(3)、When Tom looked at the clock in the mirror, it's actually half past twelve.
Q: How much does the man need to pay?
W: It’s five already, I suppose the meeting will be postponed to 5:45.
M: Well, the secretary said something unexpected happened. The meeting will begin in 30 minutes.
(4)、From the story we know that when we look at a clock in a mirror, we will find it's going backward.
Q: When will the meeting begin?
W: Excuse me, sir. Does the No.1 bus stop here?
M: Yes, but the bus only runs every half hour and one just went by five minutes ago.
(5)、Tom arrived in Paris on time.
Q: When will the No.1 bus come?
2、 By definition, heroes and heroines are men and women distinguished by uncommon courage, achievements, and self-sacrifice made most for the benefits of others - they are people against whom we measure others. They are men and women recognized for shaping our nation's consciousness and development as well as the lives of those who admire them. Yet, some people say that ours is an age where true heroes and heroines are hard to come by, where the very idea of heroism is something beyond us - an artifact of the past. Some maintain, that because the Cold War is over and because America is at peace, our age is essentially an unheroic one. Furthermore, the overall crime rate is down, poverty has been eased by a strong and growing economy, and advances continue to be made in medical science.
Cultural icons are hard to define, but we know them when we see them. They are people who manage to go beyond celebrity (明星), who are legendary, who somehow mange to become mythic. But what makes some figures icons and others mere celebrities? That's hard to answer. In part, their lives have the quality of a story to tell. For instance, the beautiful young Diana Spencer who at 19 married a prince, renounced marriage and the throne, and died at the moment she found true love. Good looks certainly help. So does a special indefinable charm, with the help of the media. But nothing confirms an icon more than a tragic death
- such as Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Princess Diana.
（1）、The passage mainly deals with ______.
A：life and death
B：heroes and heroines
C：heroes and icons
D：icons and celebrities
（2）、Heroes and heroines are usually _________.
