Section BPassage One?Pamela Royal and her partner,Edith Clark,are the owners of the Sea View Hotel in Brighton.As much of their business is seasonal,they do a good deal of the work themselves. In order to make a profit,it is necessary to keep down the cost of extra staff.Although they will never make a fortune,for the last ten years they have carned a reasonable living from the hotel.?They work extremely well together and each has her own duties.In general,Pamela does the book keeping.She is excellent with figures and seldom makes a mistake.She also takes care of the decorations,particularly the flower arranging,which is her hobby.Edith,on the other hand,makes all the staff arrangements,and when necessary does the cooking.She is a very patient woman,and if guests make complaints she tries her best to solve their problem.?However, the two ladies do not do all the work themselves.They usually employ college students to do the cleaning and the washing up.Bob Albert,who is a retired policeman,goes in two hours a day to do the gardening,or take care of the swimming pool. Both ladies are very popular. They believe in having an informal relationship with the guests,and often make friends with their regular visitors.Last month was their tenth anniversary in Brighton,and they had a dinner with their friends to celebrate.Pamela gave a speech and everyone wished them loads of success for the future.11.How do Pamela and Edith manage to keep down the cost of the hotel?12.What jobs in the hotel are given to the college students?13.Why are the two ladies popular in the area? Passage Two?Some people dream of being President of the United States.Some dream of becomingstars in a Hollywood movie,and others of making millions of dollars overnight.But, could a dream like that come true in real life?Well,it did happen to Peter Johnson.Peter was an auto mechanic.One day,he walked into the Union Trust Bank in Baltimore and took 5,000 dollars that did not belong to him.The guards and other employees stood back and let him stuff the bills in his shirt and pants without tryingto prevent him from taking the money.No one tripped an alarm.No one pulled a gun.No one called the police.Why did they allow him to get away with it??Well, everything was legal. Peter had won a contest promoted by a Baltimore radio station. The first prize entited him to enter the Union Trust bank and gather up as much money as he could lay his hands within five minutes. Because he could not bring any large bags or boxes into the bank,all the money had to be placed in his pockets.As the time went by, Peter ran about wildly,trying to pick up as many large bills as he could find.When his time was up,he was out of breath,but was $5,000 richer.14.Why did Peter go the Union Trust Bank?15.What was Peter's job?16.What did the guards do when Peter started gathering the money?17.Why didn't Peter take more money from the bank? Passage Three?Larry Smith is one of the rescuers on the Golden Gate Bridge.His job is to save people who attempt to jump into the sea.If the telephone rings at three in the morning,he knows it's trouble.Someone is threatening to commit suicide. Larry will get his things ready,and in no time he'll be out the door and heading to the spot.?"If you aren't too late,"Larry says,"you climb out onto the cold steel and try to talk to the poor soul,and pull him or her back to safety.For many suicide attempts are made on the spur of the moment,and lives can be saved.But if you fail,if the person jumps into the bottomless pool,there's no describing how helpless s you feel.Often,would-be jumpers are driven to despair and see no hope out of their misery.The trick is to open channels of communication with them.Following are some tricks that have worked:‘If you're going to jump,at least give me your mom's phone number so I can call and tell her.'or‘That's a nice watch.If you're going to jump,can I have it?'Sometimes,all it takes is the voice of the human being who cares."?Larry estimates he has rescued about thirty people in his ten years of service. 18.What is Larry's job?19.What is happening if Larry's phone rings at 3 o'clock in the morning?20.What does Larry Smith usually do to stop someone from jumping off the bridge?This is the end of listening comprehension.??1-5 DACBC 6-10 ABCBA?11-15 DCCDC 16-20 ADADB?
