(20 points)Passage One Biologically, there is only one quality which distinguishes us from animals: the ability to laugh. Laughter is a luxury, for unlike any other bodily process, it does not seem to serve a biologically useful purpose. Laughter is a unifying force in the world. Human beings oppose each other on a great many issues but we all share the ability to laugh. And laughter, in turn, depends on that most complex and subtle of all human qualities: a sense of humor. Certain comic stereotypes have a universal appeal. This can best be seen from the worldwide popularity of Charlie Chaplin's early films. The little man at odds with society never fails to amuse no matter which country we come from. Humor helps us to maintain a correct sense of values. If we can see the funny side, we never make the mistake of taking ourselves too seriously. This is one of the chief functions of satire and irony. Human pain and suffering are so grim; we hover so often on the brink of war; political realities are usually enough to plunge us into total despair. In such circumstances, cartoons and satirical accounts of somber political events redress the balance. They take the wind out of pompous and arrogant politicians who have lost their sense of proportion. They enable us to see that many of our most profound actions are merely comic or absurd. We laugh when a great satirist like Swift writes about war in Gulliver's Travels. The Lilliputians and their neighbors attack each other because they can't agree which end to break an egg.

We laugh because we are meant to laugh; but we are meant to weep too. The sense of humor must be singled out as man's most important quality because it is associated with laughter. And laughter, in turn, is associated with happiness. Courage, determination, initiative — these are qualities we share with other forms of life. But the sense of humor is uniquely human. If happiness is one of the great goals of life, then it is the sense of humor that provides the key.21. The most important of all human qualities is _____. A. a sense of humor B. a sense of satire C. a sense of laughter D. a sense of history22. The author mentions about Charlie Chaplin's early films because _____. A. they can amuse people B. human beings are different from animals C. they show that certain comic stereotypes have a universal appeal D. they show that people have the same ability to laugh23. One of the chief functions of irony and satire is _____. A. to show profundity of actions B. to redress balance C. to take the wind out of politicians D. to show too much grimness in the world24. Who is Swift? A. A novelist. B. A politician. C. A dramatist. D. A painter.25. According to the passage, one of the great goals of life is _____________. A. humor B. initiative C. courage D. happinessPassage Two Good sense is the most equitably distributed thing in the world, for each man considers himself so well provided with it that even those who are most difficult to satisfy in everything else do not usually wish to have more of it than they have already. It is not likely that everyone is mistaken in this; it shows, rather, that the ability to judge rightly and separate the true from the false, which is essentially what is called good sense or reason, is by nature equal in all men, and thus that our opinions differ not because some men are better endowed with reason than others, but only because we direct our thoughts along different paths, and do not consider the same things, for it is not

enough to have a good mind: what is most important is to apply it rightly. The greatest souls are capable of the greatest vices, and those who walk very slowly can advance much further, if they always keep to the direct road, than those who run and go astray. For my part, I have never presumed my mind to be more perfect than average in any way; I have, in fact, often wished that my thoughts were as quick, or my imagination as precise and distinct, or my memory as capacious or prompt, as those of some other men. And I know of no other qualities than these which make for the perfection of the mind; for as to reason, or good sense, inasmuch as it alone makes us men and distinguishes us from the beasts, I am quite willing to believe that it is whole and entire in each of us, and to follow in the common opinion of the philosophers who say that there are differences of more or less only among the accidents, and not among the forms, or natures, of the individuals of a single species.26. According to the author, the three elements that comprise the perfect mind are _____. A. tenacity of thought, capacious memory, quickness of mind B. precise imagination, tenacity of memory, quickness of thought C. quickness of wit, ease of conscience, quickness of thought D. promptness of memory, distinctness of imagination, quickness of thought27. The basic idea of the first paragraph may be stated as: _____. A. all persons have an equal portion of good will when they are born B. great souls are capable of great evil C. good sense, in terms of its distribution among persons, may be called common sense D. good sense is the mark of the truly good person28.
