The tourist trade is booming. 41 all this coming and going, you’d expect 42 understanding to develop between the nations of the world. Not a bit! Superb systems of communication by air, sea and land make it possible for us to visit each other’s countries at a moderate cost. What was once the ‘grand tour’, reserved for only the very rich, is now 43 everybody’s 44 . The package tour and chartered flights are not to be 45 . Modern travelers enjoy a level of comfort which the lords and ladies 46 grand tours in the old days couldn’t have dreamed of. But what’s the sense of this mass exchange of populations if the nations of the world 47 basically ignorant of each other?
Many tourist organizations are directly responsible for this 48 of affairs. They deliberately 49 to protect their clients from too much contact with the local population. The modern tourist leads a cosseted (受宠的) , sheltered life. He lives at international hotels, 50 he eats his 51 food and sips his international drink while he gazes at the natives 52 a distance. Conducted tours to places of interest are carefully censored. The tourist is allowed to see only what the organizers want him to see and no more. A strict 53 makes it impossible for the tourist to wander off 54 his own; and anyway language is a 55 so he is only too happy to be protected in this way.

Passage 1
In 1967 the consumer price index stood at 100 and it has now topped 200. Allowing for this, the average wage of workers was $104 in 1969 and $105 in April 1978. Since then with more inflation any gain in purchasing power has been wiped out and more taken away. In fact during the year of 1978, the buying power of the average paycheck has fallen by 3.4 percent. In addition to the income tax, there are usually state and county taxes, and in nearly all American communities (社区) , there is another tax that has been increasing with inflation, and it affects all purchasers.
The average American worker has not done well, but the upper-middle-class income earner has done even worse. The upper-middle-income worker has more to spend than the average worker, of course, but in buying power, not as much as he had 10 years ago.
A professional person may have seen his income tripled in the last 10 years, but even if he takes in two or three times as many dollars as he did before, he is not actually earning as much more as he may think. He may be paying four or five times as much in federal income taxes and higher state and local taxes, and if he is self-employed, he may need to set aside money for his own retirement.
The two groups of people who have done best financially are the rich and the elderly. For example, the maximum Social Security benefit was $108 in 1968 and it is $459 today, and this income is not taxable.
56.According to the writer, who have been most badly affected by the inflation?
A. All purchasers. B. Average workers.
C. Professionals. D. Upper-middle-class citizens.
57.Which of the following has been decreased during the inflation?
A. The consumer price index.
B. The purchasing power of the average paycheck.
C. Professionals’ income.
D. State and county taxes.
58.According to the passage, who may have been less affected during the inflation?
A. The rich. B. The poor.
C. Purchasers. D. Professionals.
59.In the writer’s opinion, the inflation _______.
A. had made people poorer B. was a time of becoming rich
C. was being brought under control D. would enforce people to save more money
60.What tax is collected from even the poorest citizen?
A. Income tax. B. State tax.
C. Sales tax. D. Social security tax.
Passage 2
Tourism creates employment. The English Tourist Board estimates that in the Lake District - a popular resort-30 percent of jobs can be directly attributed to tourism. Nationally, around 1.6 million jobs are involved in the tourist industry in Britain. These are mainly jobs in hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast establishments and similar types of accommodation and in restaurants and cafes. Local people can therefore earn a wage through a variety of jobs: receptionists, cooks, cleaners and waiters.
Indirectly, there are other benefits to the economy since visitors spend cash in different ways. They need local people to act as couriers and drivers for trips. Farmers and fishermen may earn extra income by selling their produce to the hotels. Village shopkeepers might have to pack up if they did not get part of their income from tourists. The money tourists spend on local souvenirs or artifacts like cloth or carvings helps traditional arts and crafts industries to survive.
However, such work is often insecure because it is seasonal. Furthermore, these workers are not necessarily recruited locally. Hotel owners may bring in staff from abroad to do the better-paid and more skilled jobs, or sometimes import cheap labor to perform the more menial (下贱的) tasks. These foreigners send remittances home - out of the country. Some holiday companies operating in Africa buy little local products. Instead, they import food and drink to suit Western tastes. In Gambia, for example, 60 percent of food and 40 percent of drinks served in resorts are imported.
Tourism attracts investment. This also benefits the economy. Yet since investors may be foreigners, a large part of the income may go overseas. In Kenya, for instance, only half the amount spent on tourism remains in the country.

A. put their tools away

D. break down
62.Why aren’t workers necessarily recruited locally?
A. Because they are seasonal workers.
B. Because they send remittances home.
C. Because foreign workers may be employed.
D. Because foreign workers may invest in local economy.
63.Which of the following is true?
A. Hotel owners may employ cheap labor from abroad to do the better-paid jobs.
B. Hotel owners may employ local workers to do the lower-paid jobs.
C. Hotel owners may employ local workers to do the better-paid jobs.
D. Hotel owners may employ foreign workers to do the better-paid jobs.
64.In Kenya, only half the amount spent on tourism remains in the country because_______.
A. foreign investors have gone back to their countries
B. foreign investors have taken their investment away
C. income of foreign investments has gone to other countries
