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 individual customers
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 goods ?-.
A)in very large quantities and for general use
B)to meet standardized specifications which will please everyone
C)at high speed regardless of cost
D)designed to have a long life
E)designed to meet the specific needs of individual customers
79.According to the passage, present-day customers ?-.

80.The point is made in the passage that mass customization ?-.
A)is no more costly and no more time-consuming than mass production

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 constructions."
81.It is clear from the passage that, before Mandelbrot's concepts attracted the attention of the scientific world, ?.
A)mathematics followed the lead of Euclid and concentrated on regular shapes
B)everyone felt that Euclidean geometry was inadequate
C)scientists relied on Euclidean geometry to measure trees and exotic noises
D)Mandelbrot almost lost confidence in the concept of roughness
E)Mandelbrot was careful to limit the scope of his studies into roughness
82.According to the passage, Euclidean 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
C)makes the investigation of roughness impossible
D)is far too comprehensive
E)put forward the concept of roughness
83.It is clear from the passage that Mandelbrot ?.
A)only began to work on the concept of roughness at 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 contradictory
D)didn't discover fractal geometry but worked to extend its uses
E)has still to convince the scientific world of the value of fractal geometry
84.One point made in the passage is that Euclidean geometry ?.
A)has led to a better appreciation of the irregularities in nature
B)has had to be modified in the light of new discoveries
C)has been shown to be invalid
D)is not universally applicable
E)doesn't deserve the respect it has enjoyed for 2,000 years

A)makes possible the measurement of anything with a rough edge
B)is actually, as regards method, very similar to Euclidean geometry
C)is merely an extension of Euclidean geometry
D)is well on the way to replacing Euclidean geometry entirely
E)is just one of several remarkable innovations propounded by Mandelbrot

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.

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 books
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 taken
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 dangers
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 events
D)hopes that "Pottermania" will soon die out of its own accord
E)believes that all cases of satanically motivated violence should make the headlines and so serve as warnings
