Part II: Banked Cloze

Questions 31 to 40 are based on the following passage.

Last summer, I went on vacation to Spain. On only the second day, my wallet was stolen. It was a very (31)

新标准大学英语(第二版)综合教程2 unit3 unit test

time, and I was (32) frustrated and angered. At first, I was angry

I had lost the cash in my wallet. Then, I realized that the thief now had

my credit cards and ID card! With only a little practice, he or she could easily (33) my signature and make hundreds of (34) purchases.

I immediately called the credit card companies to cancel my cards. The

more I thought about it, the angrier I got. How could someone commit such

(35)

新标准大学英语(第二版)综合教程2 unit3 unit test

新标准大学英语(第二版)综合教程2 unit3 unit test

? The (36) deceitfulness in stealing other people's wallets really

made me wonder how someone could be completely without (37)

新标准大学英语(第二版)综合教程2 unit3 unit test

standards or morals.

Thankfully, I still had traveler's checks — which are (38)

新标准大学英语(第二版)综合教程2 unit3 unit test

accepted in Spain — at my hotel. However, I was no longer in a good

(39) to enjoy my vacation. In my opinion, the authorities must attack

this problem (40)

; it's not enough to just focus on pickpockets or identify theft that happens locally. With the Internet, there's no such thing as "local" anymore.

Part III: Reading Comprehension

Questions 41 to 45 are based on the following passage.

Many people often wonder about the terms "blue-collar crime" and

"white-collar crime". What's the difference? Is one worse than the other?

Are they committed by different kinds of people? What does crime have to do with the color of your shirt?

First, it is helpful to understand that blue-collar workers are those people employed in jobs that require manual labor, and white-collar workers perform non-manual labor in an office setting. The terms can be dated back to the 19th century, when industrial workers and manual laborers were required to wear clothing suitable to the difficult work — which was typically a blue work shirt or blue coveralls. In contrast, professional workers in offices generally wore white dress shirts.

Today, the primary distinctions between white-collar and blue-collar crime are the social class to which the suspect belongs and the type of crime committed. Blue-collar crimes are committed by individuals from lower social classes (ie, less privileged backgrounds with fewer professional and societal opportunities), and white-collar crimes, conversely, are committed by individuals from higher, more affluent social classes.

The exact nature of the crime is also a defining factor of blue-collar versus white-collar crime. Blue-collar crimes tend to be relatively obvious (eg, vandalism, robbery, and shoplifting) or violent (eg, assault, arson, and murder) crimes that are committed out of desperation.

White-collar crimes, however, are "quieter" crimes (eg, bribery, embezzlement, and computer crime) committed by people who have the means and opportunity to exploit professional situations.

It is impossible to say that one type of crime is worse than the other, for both have serious and lasting effects for the victims. Blue-collar crime gets more consistent exposure in the media, so we usually hear more about it on a regular basis. However, even though we might not hear many news stories about white-collar crime, it still occurs every day. The increase in computer crime and rising instances of identify theft are testament to that.
