  [00:00.00](2) Questions 14--16 are based on the following monologue1
[00:11.89]introducing the origin of the expression
[00:16.54]You now have 20 seconds to read questions 14--17.
[00:23.48]14.What does the expression "Where is the beef?"mean?
[00:25.55]15.Why are hamburgers so popular in America?
[00:27.59]16.Who started the McDonald's?
[00:29.62]17.Why did other people want to open hamburger restaurant?
[00:32.37]Every people uses its own special words
[00:39.39]to describe things and express ideas.
[00:44.12]Some of these expressions are commonly used for many years.
[00:49.89]Others are popular for just a short time.
[00:55.43]One such American expression is "Where's the beef?"
[01:02.69]It is used when something is not as good as it is said to be.
[01:08.83]In the early 1980s, "Where's the beef?"
[01:13.98]was one of the most popular expressions in the United States,
[01:20.01]It seemed as if everyone was using it all the time.
[01:25.86]Beef,of course, is the meat from a cow,
[01:31.01]and probably no food is more popular in America than the hamburger made from beef.
[01:38.56]In the 1960s a businessman named Ray Kroc
[01:44.41]began building small restaurants that sold hamburgers at a low price.
[01:51.26]Kroc called his restaurant "McDonald's".
[01:56.51]Kroc cooked hamburgers quickly
[02:00.76]so people in a hurry could buy and eat them without waiting.
[02:06.62]By the end of the 1960s the McDonald's Company was selling hamburgers
[02:13.67]in hundreds of restaurants from California to Maine.
[02:19.21]Not surprisingly.Ray Kroc became one of the richest businessmen in America.
[02:26.76]Other business people watched his success.
[02:31.59]Some of them opened their own hamburger restaurants.
[02:36.94]One company,called "Wendy's",began to compete with McDonald's.
[02:43.50]Wendy's said its hamburgers were bigger Donalds's or anyone else's.
[02:50.66]The Wendy's Company created the expression "Where's the beef?"
[02:56.69]to make people believe that Wendy's hamburgers were the biggest.
[03:02.44]It produced a television advertisement to sell this idea.
[03:08.29]The Wendy's television advertisement showed three old women eating hamburgers.
[03:16.44]The bread that covered the meat was very big,
[03:21.38]but inside there was only a tiny bit of meat.
[03:27.12]One of the women said she would not eat a hamburger
[03:31.96]with such a little piece of beef.
[03:36.32]"Where's the beef?" she shouted in a funny voice.
[03:41.57]These advertisements for Wendy's hamburger restaurants
[03:47.32]were a success from the first day they appeared on television.
[03:53.06]As we said,it seemed everyone began using the expression "Where's the beef?"
[04:03.30]You now have 40 seconds to check your answers to questions 14--17.
[04:11.77]Question 14-17 according to Part C (2).
[04:13.81]14.What does the expression "Where is the beef?"mean?

[04:17.91](C)The beef is not as good as it is said to be. (D)The food has turned bad.
[04:19.94]15.Why are hamburgers so popular in America? (A)Because they are made from beef.
[04:21.98](B)Because they are cheaper than any other kind of food
[04:24.02](C)Because they are served quickly at a low price.

[04:38.15](C) Because they could sell hamburgers throughout the country.
[04:40.16](3) Questions 18--20 are based on a conversation between Dr.Francis and Li Ming
[04:48.81]about Li Ming's planned visit to Cambridge.
[04:53.85]You now have 15 seconds to read questions 18--20
[05:00.51]Question 18-20 according to part C (3).

[05:06.68]20.Who is the murderer?
[05:10.41]W:Police in North London are treating as murder the death of a man
[05:17.18]though to be in his forties
[05:21.02]whose body was found in a pedestrian subway in Neasden.
[05:27.37]The man leading the hunt is Detective Chief Superintendent2 John Day,
[05:34.42]who explains what they know of the man's movements
[05:39.28]in the early hours of this morning.
[05:44.03]M:What we've learned is the fact that he left the Level One Club,
[05:49.88]which is a drinking club in Neasden Lane,about 1:30 A.M.,
[05:56.83]and we're trying to account for movements up till 2:15,
[06:02.68]because it was about that time he was found by a member of the club,an employee
[06:09.84]He was found in the underpass,
[06:13.99]the pedestrian way,under the North Circular Road.
[06:19.53]Death was due to multiple head injuries.
[06:23.97]We understand that there may have been two girls and a man
[06:29.72]who was drunk in close proximity3 to the entrance to the subway,
[06:36.07]who may have seen our man walking in that direction,
[06:41.63]or any attacker who may have been following him.
[06:47.09]W:About what time would you think that they were there?
[06:51.64]M:Just after half past one to a quarter to two.
[06:56.89]W:Then in that case the gap you have is really quite short.
[07:02.53]It's only more or less half a hour or forty minutes.M:In fact,yes,as short as that.
[07:10.00]W:And how far away from the Neasden underpass was the drinking club?
[07:16.45]M:Fifty meters.
[07:19.41]W:And at the moment you know of no other people in the area
[07:25.26]whom you want to talk to,
[07:28.89]other than the drunk man and the two women who were seen with him
[07:34.71]or near him at some time?
[07:38.76]M:Yes.The club closed at half  past one
[07:44.61]and there may have been other people who left the club who went that way.
[07:50.57]We understand that there were also miniclub drivers parked in the area
[07:57.31]who may have seen something as well.
[08:01.25]W:As it is,I take it you haven't been able to identify them.
[08:07.11]M:No,not at this stage.  W:Well,thank you very much.
