  Amperlite Ltd

  146 0’Leafy St

  Dublin,Ireland

  Dear Sirs,

  Improved ways of production make US able to offer you our change of Drilite batteries(电池)at a reduced price for large quantities.

  Further information of the New prices for your market are sent to you together with the letter,and you will see that the price has already reduced 5 percent.As c.i.f(成本、保险加运费) to Dublin is included in our prices,you will agree that they are clearly lower than those of producers of the same batteries,both here in Japan and elsewhere.The quality of our products remains the same--only the finest chemicals are used.The new prices are for the least orders of l.000 pounds and will begin from January 1.Immediate sending off is sure because enough Can be made whenever you require it.

  We appreciate your past dealing and cooperation(合作)with us,and look forward to supplying you in the new year at the new prices.

  Yours truly,

  Nipponex Electrics

  1.If the Irish expect to enjoy the 5%of reduction at prices,they should__________.

  A.pay the Japanese at least£1,000

  B.order 1,000 pounds of batteries in weight

  C.order£1,000 worth batteries at least

  D.Pay the Japanese£1,000 ahead

  参考答案:C

  答案及解析

  C【解析】事实细节题。从文中第二段倒数第二句,The new prices are for the least orders of l,000 pounds and will begin from January

  由此可知,新的价格是基于订购至少1000英镑之上的,所以选项D符合原文的意思,是正确答案。

  2.Which is NOT the reason of reduction of the price at 5 percent?

  A.The Japanese.producer holds a large quantity of stores and can’t sell them out.

  B.The Japanese have improved their production means.

  C.They can turn out more products.

  D.They expect to go on dealing with the Irish in the coming year.

  参考答案:A

  参考解析:A【解析】判断推理题。文中给出了几个原因:Improved ways of pr0·duction;turn out more products;and look forward to supplying you inthe new year at the new prices,等。文章说的是,公司有能力立即大批量的生产,而不是说由于库存过多,卖不出去才迫于降价的。所以选项A(库存太多,卖不出去)是不符合原文的意思的,故正确答案为A。

  3.From the letter,we can know__________.

  A.the two sides cooperated before

  B.the Irish should pay for the transportation fee in terms of the new price

  C.they use the best chemicals to improve the quality

  D.they have enough storage that can supply at any time

  参考答案:A

  参考解析:A【解析】判断推理题。由文章最后一段,We appreciate your pasldealing and cooperation(合作)with US.可知,在此之前他们之间有过贸易往来。所以选项A符合原文意思,是正确的答案。

  亲爱的先生们:

  由于生产技术的改进,当需求量大时,我公司可以降低价格来提供改进后的Drilite牌电池。

  关于新价格的详细信息已经随信寄出,贵方会发现我们的价格已经降低了五个百分点。新价格是到都柏林港口的价格(包括成本、保险和运费),所以很明显我们的价格比其他生产同类产品的厂家要低,在日本是这样,同世界其他地方相比也是这样的。我们一直保持良好的产品质量,因为我们只用最好的化学材料。新的价格是从1月份开始实行的,并且基于定购金额在1000镑以上的订单。只要你们订货,我们就能保证立即发货,因为无论你们什么时候要,我们都能很快地生产并充分满足你们。

  非常感谢贵公司和我们以前的贸易合作,希望我们在新的一年里继续合作。

  您忠诚的朋友,

  Nipponex电器公司
