原文
Passage Two
In the high mountain country outside the city of Toluker, there stands a prison. This prison is quite different from other prisons in the world. The guards, except for two at the main gate, are not armed. There are many remarkable2 things about Toluker prison. For example, of the 15,000 individuals who have been in prison at Toluker, less than two percent have got into trouble again with the law. Men in the open prison are free to find work on the outside but must go back to prison each night. On weekends they are allowed to go home. When most other prisons are still sending criminals back into society. Toluker is returning people who stand on their own feet and contribute to society. In 1974, a prisoner called Barb3 Crook4 moved to the open prison. A year later, he left Toluker for the last time. He was then nearly forty six and had been in prison for fourteen years. He got a job as construction worker in the city, remarried and was regarded as a useful person of his community. If you ask Bob why Toluker works, he would say "Because they believed in me when I was at my worst."

Questions 14 to 17 are based on the passage you have just heard.
14. Why is Toluker prison called an open prison?
15. What is the essential characteristic of Toluker Prison?
16. How long did Barb Crook stay in the Toluker prison?
17. What is the speaker's attitude toward this type of prison?

参考答案与分析
14 B 本题的考点在Men in the open prison are free to find work on the outside but must go back to prison each night.
15 C 本题的考点在最后一句Because they believed in me when I was at my worst.
16 A 本题的考点在A year later, he left Toluker for the last time.
17 B 本题是作者态度题,从言辞中我们可以看出作者是持正面态度的所以应该选B。其实从选项特征也可以看出,A C是同意选项质疑和批评都是一个意思就是负面态度。D是无关紧要,漠不关心。这种选项基本上一辈子也不会成为正确答案的。如果无关紧要,漠不关心作者还写他做什么。
