come to visit us in the evening, they spend their time telling us they are in a hurry and looking at their watches. It isn’t that our friends are all very busy, it is just that we haven’t got a television. People think that we are very strange. “But what do you do in the evening?”，they are always asking. The answer is very simple. Both my wife and I have hobbies. We certainly don’t spend our evenings staring at the walls. My wife enjoys cooking and painting and often attends evening classes in foreign languages. This is particularly useful as we often go abroad for our holidays. I collect stamps and I’m always busy with my collection. Both of us enjoy listening to the music and playing chess together. Sometimes there are power cuts and we have no electricity in the house. This does not worry us, we just light candles and carry on with what we were doing before. Our friends, however, are lost---no television!---So they don’t know what to do. On such evenings our house is very full ---they all come to us. They all have a good time. Instead of sitting in silence in front of the television, everybody talks and plays games. 1.The couple have not got a television, because （ ） . A. they are not rich enough B. they are strange people C. they enjoy spending evenings in their own ways D. they don’t know what to do when there are power cuts 2.Both of them are interested in （ ） . A. learning languages B. traveling C. staying home alone D. watching people play games 3 .At night when there is no electricity, the couple . A. have to stare at the walls B. can do nothing but sit in silence C. will have many visitors D. have to go out for candles 4.The best title for this passage is _____. A. Why Do We Need a Television? B. Candle! But No Electricity! C. Different Friends, Different Hobbies. D. We Go Without Televisions! B A sign is another kind of language. Here are some of them that you see on the roads. Number one is a sign with the number thirty on it. When drivers see this sign, they must not go at more than thirty kilometers an hour. We see this sign when we are getting near a town. Number two is a sign that we’re near a crossing. We must drive carefully. Number three is a sign that there is a bend in the road. Again, we must drive slowly and carefully. It is not safe to go round a bend very fast. Number four is a sign that there is another road coming in from the right. There
is a junction at this place. Number five is a sign that there is a hill and number six is a sign that the road gets narrow. Drivers must go slowly and carefully. Number seven has the word “SCHOOL” on it. This is a sign that there is a school at the side of the street or the road. Perhaps there are children going to or leaving school. So drivers must look carefully and go slowly. Number eight is a sign with the letter “P” on it. The letter “P” means “Parking”. At some places, there’re the signs “No parking” or “No waiting”. If a driver leaves his car near one of these signs, a policeman may come and write down the number of his car. 5.At the places where you see Sign 1, ________. A. you are already out of a town B. you still have thirty kilometers to go C. there must be a town thirty kilometers away D. there must be many houses and buildings not far away 6.You have to drive not only slowly but also carefully when you find________. A. each of the eight signs B. either of Signs 2 and3 C. all of Signs 3, 5, 6 and 7 D. any of Signs 3, 5, 6 and7 7.A driver can leave his car________. A. near Sign 8 at any time B. near a sign with “No parking” on it C. near a sign with “No waiting” if there’re no police there D. near a sign with “P” on it in the daytime C Having returned from her round trip, the angry woman stood outside the ticket office of the station. "The railway owes me￡12,"she said to Harry Jenks, the young man working at the office. "You sold me a ticket for May 22nd, but there was no ship from Jersey that night. So my daughter and I had to stay in a hotel. It cost me ￡12." Harry was worried. He remembered selling the woman a return ticket. "Come into the office, Madam," he said politely. "I’ll just check the Jersey timetable(时间表) for May 22nd." The woman and her little girl followed him inside. She was quite right, as Harry soon discovered. There was no sailing on May 22nd. How could he have made such a careless mistake? He shouldn‘t have sold her a ticket for that day. Wondering what to do, he smiled at the child. “You look sun-burnt," he said to her. "Did you have a nice holiday in Jersey?" "Yes," she answered, shyly. "The beach was lovely. And I can swim too!" "That’s fine," said Harry. "My little girl can‘t swim a bit yet. Of course, she’s only three?" "I‘m four," the child said proudly. "I’ll be four and a half." Harry turned to the mother. "I remember your ticket, Madam," he said. "But you didn‘t get one for your daughter, did you?" "Er, well?"the woman looked at the child. "I mean...she hasn’t started school yet. She‘s only four." "A four-year-old child must have a ticket, Madam. A child’s return ticket to Jersey costs?let me see?￡13.50. So if the railway pays your hotel, you will owe￡1.50. The law is the law, but since the fault（过错） was mine?" The woman stood up, took the child‘s hand and left the office. 8. Why was the woman angry? （ ） A. She couldn’t use the ticket for her round trip. B. She had to return home a day earlier than she had planned.
C. She spent more money than she had expected. D. Harry had sold her a ticket to Jersey. 9.When Harry said, "The law is the law, but since the fault (过错) was mine?,"he meant that （ ） A. they must follow it without other choice, even though the fault was his. B. he had to be strict with the woman because of the law, although he didn’t want to. C. the woman had to pay him￡1.50 and the railway would pay for the hotel. D. she should pay￡1.50, but as he had made a mistake, she could go without paying. 10.why did the woman leave the office without saying anything? （ ） A. She wanted to go home and get money for the child‘s ticket. B. She was so angry that she didn’t want to have anything more to do with the young man.。 C. She was moved by Harry‘s kindness. D.
