二、阅读理解 (共 2 道试题,共 30 分)
65.Hello, new students! This is a message from the Students Union Committee.
We’ve been at the university for at least a year now, so we can give you some good tips. Don’t worry — we remember being new and making a lot of mistakes! And we haven’t forgotten feeling a little bit scared.
First, as you know, there are no longer any grants. If you borrow money from the government, remember that like all loans, you have to pay it back. Spending all your money in the first week is not a sensible strategy. Try to make a budget for each term and stick to it. But if you are struggling to make ends meet, you can get a part-time job-restaurants and bars in the town take lots of students on in the evenings and at weekends. Come and see us for advice.
Stop worrying about making new friends. Start to join the sports and hobbies societies — they’re cheap and you can begin meeting a lot of people that way. It’s a great chance to take up a completely new hobby.
Living in a new city a long way from home can be very stressful. One tip, don’t forget your parents. After all, they are paying your tuition fees here. You will be very busy working and enjoying yourself, but stop to phone your parents sometimes and don’t forget to go home for the weekend from time to time.
And remember to take your dirty washing!
Finally, remember to work hard and play hard. Go on working steadily towards your first degree (BA or BSc) throughout your three years here — try to keep things in perspective. You’ll always find someone in the Student Union office if you need to talk.
(1).What does the word “scared” mean?
(2).What does the word “grants” mean?
A.money given by the government to support the students’ study, which they needn’t pay back.
B.money from the school which is similar to scholarship.
C.money from the government which the students need to pay back.
D.a kind of loan from the government with low interests.
(3).The sentence “But if you are struggling to make ends meet, …at weekends” implies_________.
A.restaurants and bars need more hands in the evenings and at weekends
B.restaurants and bars don’t need more hands in the evenings and at weekends
C.if you want to have a better life than others, you can find a part-time job in your spare time
D.if you are short of money, you can find a part-time job in the restaurants and bars in your spare time

70.Every people uses its own special words to describe things and express ideas. Some of these expressions are commonly used for many years. Others are popular for just a short time. One such American expression is “Where’s the beef?” It is used when something is not as good as it is said to be. In the early 1980s “Where’s the beef?” was one of the most popular expressions in the United States. It seemed as if everyone was using it at the time. Beef is the meat from a cow, and probably no food is more popular in America than a hamburger made from beef. In the 1960s Ray Kroc began building small restaurants called “McDonald’s” which sold hamburgers at a low price. Kroc cooked hamburgers quickly so people in a hurry could buy and eat them without waiting. By the end of the 1960s the McDonald’s Company was selling hamburgers in hundreds of restaurants in America. So Ray Kroc became one of the richest businessmen in America. Other businessmen opened their own hamburger restaurants. One company, called “Wendy’s”, began to compete with McDonald’s. Wendy’s said its hamburgers were bigger than those sold by McDonald’s or anyone else. The Wendy’s Company created the expression “Where’s the beef?” to make people believe that Wendy’s hamburgers were the biggest. It produced a television advertisement to sell this idea. The Wendy’s television advertisement showed three old women eating hamburgers. The bread that covered the meat was very big, but inside there was only a tiny bit of meat. One of the women said she would not eat a hamburger with such a little piece of beef. “Where’s the beef?” she shouted in funny voice. These advertisements for Wendy’s hamburger restaurants were a success from the first day they appeared on television. Then it seemed everyone began using the expression “Where’s the beef?”
(1).The expression “Where’s the beef?” in the passage means __________.
A.the food has turned bad
