The most obvious purpose of advertising is to inform the consumer of available products or services. The second【C1】______is to sell the product. The second purpose might be more important to the manufacturers than the【C2】______. The manufacturers go beyond only telling consumers about their products. They also try to persuade customers to buy the【C3】______by creating a desire【C4】______it. Because of advertisement, consumers think that they want something that they do not need. After buying something, the purchaser cannot always explain why it was【C5】______.
Even【C6】______the purchaser probably does not know why he or she bought something, the manufacturers【C7】______. Manufacturers have analyzed the business of【C8】______and buying. They know all the different motives that influence a consumer’ s purchase—some rational and【C9】______emotional. Furthermore, they take advantage of this【C10】______.
Why【C11】______so many products displayed at the checkout counters in grocery stores? The store management has some good【C12】______.

This is exactly【C19】______the store and the manufacturer hope that the customer will【C20】______. The customer follows his or her plan.
解析：从文中的第一句话“The most obvious purpose…”可以看出后面还有别的目的，而不是仅仅有最明显的目的。故答案为purpose。
解析：从前一句话“The manufacturers go beyond only telling consumers about their products．”可以看出，一方面广告要介绍自己的产品，而第二个目的就是卖掉自己的产品。所以这里作者想要表达的意思是“广告要使得顾客有一种购买的欲望去购买自己的产品。”故答案为production。
解析：关键是注意and前后一致。“some rational and…emotional”，前面说促使顾客购买的动机有很多，有的是理性的，有的却是冲动。所以这里应该是some。故答案为some。
解析：顾客来到结算处，说明他们准备好了要付账。be ready to的意思是“准备好了做某事”。故答案为ready。
解析：“…的决定”英语表达为“decision on sth．”这里介词需要用on。故答案为on。
解析：从这个句子的宾语“…that he or she has done a good job of choosing the items．”可以看出，这里说的是顾客的行为，他们认为自己买这些商品是很理性的。故答案为customer。
In January 1995, the world witnessed the emergence of a new international economic order with the launching of the World Trade Organization. The WTO, which succeeds the GATT, is expected to strengthen the world trading system and to be more effective than the GATT in governing international trade in goods and services in many aspects.
First, trade liberalization all over the world is expected to increase via the dramatic reductions in trade barriers to which the members of the WTO are committed. Under the WTO, members are required to reduce their tariff and non-tariffs on manufacturing goods. In addition, protecting domestic agricultural sectors from foreign competition will become awfully difficult in the new WTO system.
Second, rules and regulations governing international trade will be more strongly enforced. Under the old system of the GATT, there were many cases where trade measures, such as anti-dumping and countervailing duties, were intentionally used solely for protectionist reasons. The WTO’s strengthened rules and regulations will significantly reduce the abusing of such trade measures by its member countries. The WTO is also equipped with an improved dispute settlement mechanism. Accordingly, we expect to see a more effective resolution of trade disputes among the member countries in this new trade environment.
Third, new multilateral rules have been established to cover areas which the GATT did not address, such as international trade in services and the protection of intellectual property rights. There still remain a number of problems that need to be resolved before international trade in services can be completely liberalized, and newly-developed ideas or technologies are fairly compensated. However, just the establishment of multilateral rules in these new areas is a distinguished contribution to the progress toward a global free trade system.
Along with the launching of the WTO, this new era in world trade is characterized by a change in the structure of the world economy. Today, a world-wide market for goods and services is rapidly replacing a world economy composed of relatively isolated national markets. Domestic financial markets have been integrated into a truly global system, and the multinational corporation is becoming a principal mechanism for allocating investment capital and determining the location of production sites throughout much of the world.

60.What’s the meaning of the word \(A)
With unfamiliar human beings, when we acknowledge their humanness, we must avoid staring at them, and yet we must also avoid ignoring them. To make them into people rather than objects, we use a deliberate and polite inattention. We look at them long enough to, make it quite clear that we see them, and then we immediately look a-way.
The important thing in such an exchange is that we do not catch the eye of one whom we are recognizing as a person. We look at him without locking glances, and then we immediately look away. Recognition is not permitted.
If you pass someone in the street, you may eye the oncoming person until you are about eight feet apart, then you must look away as you pass. Before the eight-foot distance is reached, each will signal in which direction he will pass. This is done with a brief look in that direction. Each will veer slightly and the passing is done smoothly.
To strengthen this signal, you look directly at the other’ s face before looking away.
It becomes impossible to discover just what they are doing. Are they looking at you too long, too intently? Are they looking at you at all? The person wearing the glasses feels protected and assumes that he can stare without being noticed in his staring. However, this is a self-deception. To the other person, dark glasses seem to indicate that the wearer is always staring at him.
We often use this look-away technique when we meet famous people. We want to assure them we are respecting their privacy and that we would not dream of staring at them. The same is true of the crippled or physically handicapped. We look brief and then look away before the stare can be said to be a stare.
Of course, the opposite is also true. If we wish to put a person down, we may do so by staring longer than is acceptably polite. Instead of dropping our gazes when we lock glances, we continue to stare. The person who disapproves of interracial marriages or dating will stare rudely at the interracial couple. If he dislikes long hair, short dresses, or beards, he may show it with a longer-than-acceptable stare.
A. There are different formulas for the exchange of glances depending on where the meeting takes place.
B. In the subway or bus where long rides in very close circumstances are a necessity, we may be hard put to find some way of not staring. We sneak glances, but look away before our eyes can lock. If we look with an unfocused glance that misses the eyes and settles on the head, the mouth, the body for any place but the eyes is an acceptable looking spot for the unfocused glance.
C. Actually in this way we are saying, in body language, \
解析：文章的第一段说“We look at them long enough to，make it quite clear that we see them，and then we immediately look away．”意思就是我们看人时不能一直不断地盯着看，并解释了如何去做。选项中的in this way符合了前面的意思。故应选C。
解析：由此空的上下两段可以得到答案。上段说的如何去看人的两种方法，而后面的一段接着说地点问题。所以这里的“depending on where the meeting takes place．”符合句意，故应选A。
解析：由此空上段的最后一句话“Each will veer slightly and the passing is done smoothly．”可知，当两人接近时应该慢慢地把目光转向别的地方。而后面的一段接着说“this signal”，也就是选项中的“I trust you．I am not afraid of you．”故此处应选E。
解析：后面的一段说明了相反的情况。“The person wearing the glasses…”与选项中的“…two people wears dark glasses”相对应，故应选F。
解析：此处的前一段说明的是一些特殊情况，例如“The same is true of the crippled or physically handicapped．”而后面的一段指出“Of course，the opposite is also true．”也就是说在空白的地方，作者依然在说明这些不寻常的情况，故应选D。
A = Rotherhithe B = Barnes C = Willesden D = King’ s Cross

Rotherhithe may be most famous for its congested tunnel but many young buyers are warming to its riverside charms.
It is still much cheaper than its waterside neighbors. The housing stock is predominately 1980s flats, many arranged in cul-de-sacs(死胡同)and closes around Surrey Quays Road.
The unpopular architecture has led to the area being called the Milton Keynes of London but properties are spacious and unfashionable style has kept prices down.
Paul Mitchell, of estate agents Alex Neil, says, \
解析：由D中“King’s Cross used to be renowned for problems including drugs，prostitution and street crime”，意为“King’s Cross过去因吸毒，卖淫和街头犯罪等问题而著称”我们可以看出。所以此处答案为D。
解析：由A中第三段中“The unpopular architecture has led to the area being called the Milton Keynes of London”，A中多处提到Rotherhithe的建筑风格很老套。所以此处答案为A。
解析：由B中“These sell for anything between ￡2 million and ￡5 million．”，每套住房销售价格在200万英镑到500万英镑之间不等，极其昂贵。所以此处答案为B。
解析：由A中“The unpopular architecture has led to the area being called the Milton Keynes of London but properties are spacious and unfashionable style has kept prices down”可以看出房屋样式古板，但是价位令人比较容易接受。所以此处答案为A。
解析：由B中“Barnes sits just across the river from Hammersmith in southwest London，but it could not be more different from the noise and bustle of the opposite bank．”可以看出Barnes与其对岸喧嚣吵闹的城市完全不同。所以此处答案为B。
解析：由C中“It’s popular because it is still affordable．although prices have rocketed over the last year．”可以看出Willesden Green去年飞速增长，但是房价还能接受。所以此处答案为C。
解析：由D中“The project includes a new Eurostar terminal opening this year and a spruced-up Tube station，alongside hundreds of new homes，offices and leisure facilities set to be completed in 2015．”可以看出将在King’s Cross投资建立许多基础设施。所以此处答案为D。
解析：由D中Smith adds，“Investment-wise, King’s Cross is a good bet．There is a big rental market here and prices will go up．There are still cheaper properties available，one to two bedroom flats in Victorian conversions，or ex-council properties．But people are holding on to them for dear life in the hope they will go up in value．If you find one，it is worth investing in．”可以看出在King’s Cross投资将会物有所值。所以此处答案为D。
解析：由A中将打算建“night time economy”可以看出。所以此处答案为A。
解析：由C中“Despite its growing popularity，the area remains interesting and multicultural．”可以看出Willesden Green是一个文化多样性的城市。所以此处答案为C。
76. Some people claim that staying in a place all one’ s life is good for one’ s growth, while others disagree with the view, and they prefer changing the place. Write an article to express your point of view on this topic.
Do you prefer staying in a place all your life?
There is a widespread concern over whether it’ s a bad thing that people live in a place all their life. But it’ s well known that one man’ s meat is another man’ s poison.
A majority of people think that staying in a place for a long time is a better choice. In their view there are two reasons contributing to this attitude as follows: in the first place, people who stay in one spot can develop a lifetime friendship, and such a friend will give a hand without hesitation if trouble comes. In the second place, when people move to different places, they usually are under pressure from strangeness. A person may feel lost and tense in a place where streets, stores and schools are all different. As a saying goes: Fear always springs from ignorance.
People, however, differ in their opinions on this matter. Some people hold the idea that people shouldn’t live in one place through their lives. In their points of view, on the one hand, people who spend a lifetime in one location can be locked into a limited way of life. A real problem is that life lacks passion. On the other hand, those who move frequently have a variety of outlooks. There is a chance to appreciate different ways of life.
As far as I am concerned, I finally agree the view that people shouldn’ t stay in a place all their lives. It’ s not only because people can broaden their vision in different places, but also because fear will disappear with time. There is no doubt that no courage, no gains.
