For two decades after World War II, mass
production reigned supreme. Mass-production
techniques pushed companies into standardized
products, long product life cycles, and rigid
manufacturing, emphasizing efficiency and low cost
over flexibility. Special orders cost more. But
today's consumers are very choosy. They want
quality, value and products specially tailored to
their needs, but always at the lowest possible
price. For now mass customization has come to the
fore. Mass customization uses information technology
to produce and deliver products and services
designed to fit the specifications of individual
customers. Companies can customize products in
quantities as small as one with the same speed and
low cost as mass-production methods.
Mass-customization systems use information taken
from the customer to control the flow of goods.
76.We learn from the passage that mass
production -- .
A)has now regained its previous popularity
B)was the leading method of production in the twenty
years or so that followed World War II
C)can easily be adapted to meet the needs of
D)can be very profitable because of the wide appeal
of its goods
E)gives priority to quality and longevity in the
goods produced but ignores aesthetic qualities
77.We learn from the passage that one of the
characteristics of mass production is -.
A)the need to please every customer
B)a disregard for flexibility
C)a disregard for cost-effectiveness
D)to take into consideration the specifications
given by individual customers
E)the rescheduling of production as the need arises
78.By the phrase "mass customization", as it
is used in the passage, is meant the production of
A)in very large quantities and for general use
B)to meet standardized specifications which will

Before the Polish-born French-American
mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot made his mark on the
world, scientists liked to forget about the
imperfections and irregularities of nature. The
study of perfect squares, triangles and planes had
dominated their field for over 2,000 years, since
the Greek geometer Euclid wrote maths' oldest
treatise "Elements" and provided us with the tools
to measure these flawlessly smooth shapes. Early
question about how to measure the real shape of a
tree, a coastline or anything with a rough edge
could not be tackled by Euclidean geometry and had
therefore been ignored. But Mandelbrot changed all
this when he invented fractal geometry, which
enables us to measure roughness. "My whole career
has been one long, ardent pursuit of the concept of
roughness", he says. "The roughness of clusters in
the physics of disorder, of turbulent flows, of
exotic noises, of chaotic dynamical systems, of the
distribution of galaxies, of coastlines, of
stock-price charts and of mathematical

C)scientists relied on Euclidean geometry to measure
trees and exotic noises

studies into roughness

geometry can, in a way, be regarded as having had a
negative effect upon the development of mathematics
because it .
A)can be neither substantiated nor disproved
B)is too involved with measurement

D)is far too comprehensive
E)put forward the concept of roughness

a later stage in his career
B)finds the concept of roughness immensely exciting,
and apparent in widely different areas
C)worked on the concept of roughness because he
wanted to prove that Euclid's theories were
D)didn't discover fractal geometry but worked to
extend its uses

value of fractal geometry

Euclidean geometry .
A)has led to a better appreciation of the
irregularities in nature

Therapists have to be very careful before
they make a diagnosis of delusional disorder. A
great many complaints are founded on fact. It is
possible that a patient is really being harassed at
work, that her husband is deceiving her, or that her
business partner is cheating her. Indeed, therapists
must be careful not to mislabel facts as delusions,
a trap known as "the Martha Mitchell effect". Martha
Mitchell was the wife of former US attorney general
John Mitchell. In October 1972, he was accused of
having ordered the break-in at the Democratic
campaign headquarters in the Watergate Hotel in
Washington, D.C. Mrs Mitchell repeatedly told the
press that her husband was being made a scapegoat to
protect the real culprit - President Richard M.
Nixon. The White House spread disinformation about
Mrs Mitchell, saying she had a drinking problem and
implying that her statements were delusional. When
the scandal was ultimately unravelled, Mrs
Mitchell's statements were proved true and she was
shown to be utterly sane and with no drinking

Recent activity in several US church
communities has seemed almost unbelievable:
churchgoers have gathered around huge fires and
cheered as they cast Harry Potter books into the
flames. They fear that the incredibly popular series
about a school for young wizards is spurring
children and adolescents toward a life of witchcraft
and onto the dangerous path toward Satanism. For
these congregations, J.K. Rowling's books are none
other than the work of the devil herself. To most
people, however, the Harry Potter books and films
are merely compelling adventure stories, not a
threat to children's psyches. But what has been
forgotten in the excitement of "Pottermania" is that
boys and girls have been fascinated by magic and
sorcery for generations. Surveys about magical
practices among adolescents vary widely, but some
indicate that as many as 44 per cent have shown some
slight, passing interest in it. Although satanically
motivated violence occasionally makes headlines,
research shows that less than 5 per cent of young
people take part in more extensive witchcraft, and
very few end up in the kind of organized devil
worship that can lead to such acts as ritual murder.
91.The attitude of the writer of the passage
towards the burning of the Harry Potter books by
various church communities is -.
A)an understanding one, as many young people have
been led astray by these books
B)one of deep anger
C)sympathetic as basically he believes they are
right about the ill-effects of the Harry Potter
D)one of amazement at their response
E)one of repulsion at their hysteria and fanaticism
92.One point emphasized in the passage is
that the interest of young people in magic .
A)is no more dangerous than their love of adventure
B)needs to be recognized by society and firm action
C)really is largely due to the Harry Potter stories
D)is by no means a new development
E)should be encouraged as it is perfectly harmless
93.According to the passage, though a fair
number of young people have felt a vague, temporary
interest in magic, .
A)it has always been easy to convince them of its
B)few have become seriously involved
C)they have never, in any way, been harmed by it
D)most do not even know the meaning of Satanism
E)this never continues into adolescence
94.In the passage, though the writer does
not want to make a big issue of the matter of
witchcraft, he --.
A)would like more surveys and studies to be carried
out on it
B)feels it should receive more public attention
C)admits that it can, on occasion, lead to terrible
D)hopes that "Pottermania" will soon die out of its
E)believes that all cases of satanically motivated
violence should make the headlines and so serve as
95.According to the passage, those who burn
the Harry Potter books .
A)have previously burned other popular books
B)are actually indulging in a form of witchcraft
C)mostly do so without having first read the books
D)are being accused, quite unfairly, of displaying
E)do so because they believe these books encourage
young people to turn to witchcraft
