Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage:
In the past twenty years, though its economy was developing rapidly, China remains a developing country. Different from developed countries, which are well known for their abundance of capital and high cost of labor resources, China has plenty of low cost labor resources but lacks in capital. Difference in company resources has resulted in very different manufacturing process and corporation culture in China.
For a manufacturing enterprise, labor and equipment are two resources that can replace each other in a wide range. In developed countries, as a result of high labor cost and relevant abundant capital, enterprises often employ much more capital and equipment to replace the high cost labor resources when they design their enterprise projects. However in China, especially for middle and small private enterprises, capital often comes from private funding, capital is an insufficient resource. Also, China is a developing country with a massive population, and never lacks of labor force. When an enterprise designs the manufacturing process, it is very reasonable to use more labor and less equipment.
With the continuous growth of Chinese international trade in China, especially after China joined WTO, Chinese enterprises gradually enter the world market. On the other hand, enterprises from developed countries are also more and more involved in Chinese market. Two markets are gradually merging and two kinds of enterprises begin to compete in the same market. A real global market is forming and global manufacturing resources are being reorganized. Manufacturing process will be optimized to a new and uniform concept. This mutative process will have great influence over the world market. For Chinese enterprises, this change will bring more chances as well as more challenges.

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage:
Amtrak (美国铁路客运公司) was experiencing a downswing in ridership(客运量) along the lines comprising its rail system. Of major concern to Amtrak and its advertising agency DDB Needham, were the long-distance western routes where ridership had been declining significantly.
At one time, trains were the only practical way to cross the vast areas of the west. Trains were fast, very luxurious, and quite convenient compared to other forms of transportation existing at the time. However, times change and the automobile became America’s standard of convenience. Also, air travel had easily established itself as the fastest method of traveling great distances. Therefore, the task for DDB Needham was to encourage consumers to consider other aspects of train travel in order to change their attitudes and increase the likelihood that trains would be considered for travel in the west.
Two portions of the total market were targeted: (1) anxious fliers—those concerned with safety, relaxation, and cleanliness and (2) travel-lovers—those viewing themselves as relaxed, casual, and interested in the travel experience as part of their vacation. The agency then developed a campaign that focused on travel experiences such as freedom, escape, relaxation, and enjoyment of the great western outdoors. It stressed experiences gained by using the trains and portrayed western train trips as wonderful adventures.
Advertisements showed pictures of the beautiful scenery that could be enjoyed along some of the more famous western routes and emphasized the romantic names of some of these trains (Empire Builder, etc.). These ads were strategically placed among family-oriented TV shows and programs involving nature and America in order to most effectively reach target audiences. Results were impressive. The Empire Builder, which was focused on in one ad, enjoyed a 15 percent increase in profits on its Chicago to Seattle route.
