A Sailors used to speak of a “jack” when they meant a flag which was set near the bow of a sailing ship. The flag showed the country to which the ship belonged. The Union Jack became the flag of Great Britain. Australia’s flag has the Union Jack in the top left -hand corner together with the stars of the Southern Cross. They have kept this small part of Britain on their flag because their country was first settled by people from Britain. Australia’s flag is the same color as the Union Jack — red, white and blue. The act of joining together is called a “union”. The Union Jack was the name of the flag made when England, Scotland and Ireland joined together to make one country. It all began in 1707, when England and Scotland joined together to become one nation. A flag was made using two crosses — one for the patron saint of each country, which means protector. Many centuries before, the English had taken St. George as their patron saint. His emblem was a red cross on a white background. The Scottish patron saint was St Andrew. In memory of him, they used a white cross on a blue background. This cross was s haped like the letter “X”. The new flag was a mixture of both flags with two sets of crosses. When Ireland joined England and Scotland in 1800, another cross was added. St Parick’s cross of Ireland was red and also shaped like an “X”. All three flags now made up the Union Jack. 36. The Union Jack is the flag of __________. A. the United Nations B. Ireland C. England and Scotland D. Great Britain 37. It is because _______ that Australia has the Union Jack in the top left-hand corner together with the stars of the Southern Cross. A. the Union Jack was named when England, Scotland and Ireland joined together B. people from Britain brought the flag of Great Britain to Australia C. people from Britain settled in Australia first D. the flag of Great Britain is colorful 38. According to the text, which of the following statements is NOT true? A. St. George was the English patron saint. B. The Scottish had taken St. Andrew as their patron saint. C. St. Patrick was the patron saint of Ireland, whose cross was red. D. Ever since 1800, the British have taken Union Jack as their patron saint. B “Soon, you’re going to have to move out!” cried my neighbor upon seeing the largest tomato plant known to mankind, or at least known in my neighborhood. One tiny 9-inch plant, bought for $1.25 in the spring, has already taken over much of my rose bed, covering much of other plants, and is well on its way to the front door. Roses require a good deal of care, and if it weren’t for the pleasure they give, it wouldn’t be worth the work. As it is, I have a garden full of sweet-smelling roses for most of the year. bushes must be pruned(剪枝) in early spring, leaving
ugly woody branches until the new growth appears a few weeks later. It was the space available(可用的) in the garden that led me into planting just one little tomato plant. A big mistake. Soil conditions made just perfect for roses turn out be even more perfect for tomatoes. The daily watering coupled with full sun and regular fertilizing(施肥) have turned the little plant into a tall bush. The cage I placed around it as the plant grew has long since disappeared under the thick leaves. Now the task I face in harvesting the fruit is twofold; First, I have to find the red ones among the leaves, which means I almost have to stand on my head, and once found I have to reach down and under, pick the tomatoes and withdraw(缩回) my full fist without dropping the prize so dearly won. I found two full-blown white roses completely hidden as I picked tomatoes in June. But they were weak and the leaves already yellow for lack of light. Here I am faced with a painful small decision: To tear up a wonderful and productive tomato plant that offers up between ten and twenty ripe sweet tomatoes each day or say goodbye to several expensive and treasured roses. Like Scarlett in
Gone With the Wind, I’ll think about that tomorrow.
39．The writer planted the tomato because _________. A．it cost only $1.25 C．there was room for it in the garden to be covered 40．This year the writer’s roses were __________.

A．the roses cost the writer little money B．the writer has a daily harvest of tomatoes C．someone will help the writer make the decision D．the writer can now enjoy both the roses and tomatoes C The United States covers a large part of the North American continent.

As the nation grew toward the west, new states were added and new stars appeared on the flag. For a long time, there were 48 stars. In 1959, however, two more stars were added to the flag, representing the new states of Alaska and Hawaii. Indians were the first people of the land which is now the United States. There are still many thousands of Indians now living in all parts of the country. Sometimes it is said that the Indians are “the only real Americans”. Most Americans come from all over the world. Those who came first in greatest numbers to make their homes on the eastern coast of North America were mostly from England. It is for that reason that the language of the United States is English and that its culture and customs are more like those of England than those of any other country in the world. 43. Which of the following is TRUE? A. America is the largest country in the world. B. The population of America is larger than that of any other country in the North American continent. C.

A ticket agent named Elvio greeted the strange dog in a friendly way, so the dog decided to stay. From that day on, the dog became Elvio's shadow and was named Lampo. Lampo kept Elvio Company (陪伴) inside the ticket office. When the weather was warm, he would enjoy himself in the sun on the train platform. When it came time for Elvio to return home on the train at night, Lampo ran after the train for a long way and then sadly gave up and went back to the station. One night as Elvio was riding home on the train, he noticed that La mpo was lying at his feet. Afraid that the conductor would see the dog on the train and shout at him, Elvio pushed Lampo under a seat. Luckily, the conductor did not notice the dog. Lampo came home with Elvio and met his family. Then, after a short visit, Lampo boarded the last train and went back to the station. Lampo quickly learned all of the train schedules (时刻表). He would ride home from work with Elvio every night and then ride back to the station alone. Every morning, Lampo arrived at Elvio's house in time to walk his young daughter, Mivna, to school. The faithful dog would then take another train to travel again to accompany Mivna home from school at 11:30. Soon, Lampo began to take the train all over Italy. Lampo became famous among the men who worked on the railroad, as his journeys became more frequent, complicated and mysterious. No one could explain why he traveled or how he always found the right train back to Campiglia. People decided that Lampo was a unique dog. Some of the railroad officials were against Lampo's illegal travels. They were afraid he would bite a passenger or cause some other problems. Finally, the stationmaster threatened to call the dogcatcher if Elvio didn't get rid of the dog. Elvio decided to put Lampo on a train going as far away as possible. Months went by and Lampo did not come back. Mivna missed him very much and prayed for his return. Finally one day, a sad, very thin, tired Lampo returned to Elvio's office. Everyone, even the stationmaster, was sorry about what had happened. From then on, Lampo was allowed to ride the trains whenever he wanted. After seven years, Lampo grew old, and he began to need Elvio's help to board the train. One day Lampo was seen lying dead on the tracks. A year later, a life sized statue of Lampo was set up at Campiglia station. 66. The first time Lampo took the train, Elvio was ______. A. delighted that he was lucky B. afraid the dog would bite someone C. afraid the conductor would see him and be angry D. excited that Lampo would soon meet his family 67. Lampo's traveling all over Italy caused people to believe that _______. A. he could read the train schedules B. he was famous in the country C. Elvio secretly helped him D. he was a very special dog
68. The stationmaster threatened that if Elvio didn't get rid of the dog, _______. A. Elvio would be fired B. Lampo would be put on the train tracks C. the stationmaster would send him away D. a dogcatcher would be called 69. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the story? A. The dog was once sent away by Elvio. B. The dog finally won the stationmaster's heart. C. The dog was faithful to his master. D. The dog died when he was seven years old. 70. The author suggests that a statue of Lampo was set up because _______. A. the stationmaster felt sorry about what had happened B. he had been a friend to travelers C. it would bring good luck to the town D. Elvio offered money to set up the statue

Opinions are divided on the topic. 70% of my classmates hold the view that there is no need for parents to do so. For one thing, we may fall into the habit of dependence, which will have a negative effect on the development of our self-control ability. For another, it will affect our parents’ work, study and rest. However, 30% of us are in favor of it. In their
opinion, with parents accompanying us, we can spare more time to concentrate on our study and we will become more healthy. Furthermore, parents can help set our study goal and urge us to complete our study tasks. Also we can overcome difficulties on our own. with their encouragement and develop a good habit of studying. Best wishes. 附加题： I. 单词拼写 56. consists 57. divided 58. description 59. accomplish 60. wedding 61. relations 62. convenience 63. collection 64. delight 65. arrange II．阅读理解 66.C。 细节理解题。根据第三段的信息 Afraid that the conductor would see the dog on the train and shout at him, Elvio pushed Lampo under a seat.可知，当 Lampo 第一次 乘火车时，Elvio 害怕列车员发现他的狗会生气。shout at sb.or sth.的意思是冲某人或 某物大声喊叫。 67.D。细节理解题。根据第四段的信息 Lampo became famous among the men who worked on the railroad, as his journeys became more frequent, complicated and mysterious.
