Oscar, the golden statue handed out to the winners, looks like a knight(骑士)standing on a reel of film(一盘胶片)and holding a sword in his hands. But how did the little statue get the name “Oscar”? Ten years later, a popular story says that an American librarian thought the statue looked just like his uncle, whose name was Oscar .The Academy began to call the statues “Oscars” in 1939. For 75 years, the Academy Awards have been the most famous film awards in the world. There are Oscar awards for all parts of movie-making, including acting, directing(导演)and music. One of the most exciting things about the Oscars is that they are all secret. Before the envelopes are opened on stage and the winners are announced on TV, no one knows who they are! This year, the statues were given at the 76th annual Academy Awards (also known as the Oscars) held on February 29 at Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, US. Some of the Oscars went to American actor Sean Penn and South African actress Charlize Theron, and also to the animated film Finding Nemo , which tells a touching story about a clown fish named Marlin who looks for his lost son Nemo. On Oscar night, all the shining stars in beautiful clothes, walk out on red carpet, drink champagne and celebrate their success! ( ) 36. The meaning for the underlined word “animated” is________.

People can know who has won the Oscar before the night. D. The Oscar statues are given to the persons who achieve great success in movie making. （B） You leave the palm trees(棕榈树)in the Union Square—the heart of San Francisco—and from the shop signs and the faces around you, you will notice that in the city, live people from many nations—Australians ,Italians, Chinese and others—giving each part a special character. More Chinese live in San Francisco’s Chinatown than in any other part of the world outside China. Here, with Chinese restaurants, Chinese postboxes, and even odd(奇异的)telephone-boxes that look like pagoda(塔),it is easy to feel you are in China itself. ( ) 41. This passage is most probably taken from ________. A. a Chinese textbook about the United States B. a novel published in San Francisco C. a traveller’s guide ( ) 42. Union Square _________. A. lies in San Francisco’s Chinatown C .is a shopping centre of the city D. has some telephone-boxes which looks like pagodas ( ) 43. The main idea of this paragraph is that______________. A. there are many Chinese living in Chinatown B. people living in San Francisco like Chinatown B. has many plat trees around it D. a letter to parents

From the passage we can see that _________. A. the Chinese culture is the greatest in the world B. people living San Francisco come from all parts of the world C. the Chinese have turned San Francisco into a Chinatown D. in San Francisco there are more Chinese than Australians, Italians and so on （C） Why are Arabic figures(数字) used everywhere in the world? In the past, other counting figures once existed in many countries, but they all died away. The Roman figures, for example, were popular in Europe before the 13th century. However, they are hardly in use now, except on some clocks and on other rare occasions. Look at the following and you will know why it is so. The Romans used seven letters, each representing a different number, I for 1,V for 5,X for 10 ,L for 50,C for 100,D for 500,and M for 1,000.To express a small number, the Romans would use repetitions or additions, or subtractions. For instance, II means 2, XXX means 30(repetition); VII means 7(addition) while IX expresses 4(subtraction). To express a number a thousand times larger, they put a line above the number. Therefore, X VI= 16,000, and CDXL VII=44,700. To show the year 1995 in Roman figures, it will be MCMXCV. The difficulty is quite clear. The Arabic numbers, on the other hand, avoid all this trouble. First, they are decimal(十进 位) .Second, they are easy to write. It is these strong points that make the Arabic figures accepted by people all over the world.
）46. In the text, ________methods are shown as to how to express numbers in Roman figures. A. four B. seven B. MDXLVIII C. five D. three
）47. The 1,548 in Roman figures should be________. A. MVMIVIII C. MDMXXXXVIII D. MDXL ）48. Why are Arabic figures widely used in the world? Because _______. A. other counting figures all died away B. they are convenient and easy to expressed decimal points and fractions C. Arabic figures are decimal D. Both B and C C.5500 D. more than 500 B. Roman figures
）49. The line above the number LV means _______. A .500 B. a thousand time ）50. The main idea of this passage is about________. A. how to express a number in Roman figures C. the history of Roman figures D. the reasons why Arabic figures are used everywhere in the world. （D） Before modern farming methods, farmers lost crops to dry weather. Sometimes dry period
lasted for many years. In those days, a long dry period, or drought, often turned the land to dust. The winds came along and blew the good land away. This happened year after year. Farmers didn’t understand how to plant and so they made the situation worse. Each year they planted the same crops. They never gave the land a rest. The land became poor with too much use. They always plants in long straight rows. They broke the land into fine dust. They never plants trees to break the strength of the wind. The worse dry period was the drought of the 1930’s. Good farmland on the Western Plains became a Dust Bowl. Farmers had a very hard time until they started to use modern farming methods. Now farmers plant a different crop every year. Some years they give part of their land a rest. The land stays healthy and rich. Modern farmers form rows in curving(弯曲) lines and plant trees to stop the wind. Modern crops are much larger and more dependable. Dry land farming is both a science and an art. From the air, the farms look like pieces of modern art. ( ) 51．Why did farmers lose so many crops?

(3). a dry period lasted for a long time sometimes (4).farmers used different methods A.(1)(2)and(3) ( B.(3)and(4) C.(2)and(4) D. All of the above

The situation got worse because farmers didn’t understand the modern methods. D. The planting of the same crops and too much use made the land become poor. ( ) 53．What happened on the Western Plains in the 1930’s? A. Farmers lived a hard life until 1930. B. Farmers began to use modern farming methods in 1930. C. The drought made the farmland become a Dust Bowl. D. The land became healthier and richer. ( ) 54．Which of the following is NOT TRUE according to the passage?
