Although campers and hikers are warned not to feed the bears, many people ignore these warnings and feed the beasts anyway. When bears are used to people’s food, problems soon arise. Bears like to eat a large variety of things, both meat and vegetable. Without human assistance, bears live nicely on roots, twigs, leaves of trees, insects and small animals. With people around, the bears’ tastes quickly expand to include sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers, and anything else they can temp humans into giving up. Bears often develop clever strategies for getting people to let go their food supplies. More often than not, an unsuspecting hiker has taken off his or her pack for a rest only to have a bear charge out of the woods, grab the pack and quickly disappear into the underbrush with it. Hanging the pack on a tree branch won’t help. Bears have been known to climb up, jump off, and catch the pack on the way down. One mother bear stretched up with her baby on her shoulders to reach a pack stored on a pole. Many bears threaten people into giving up their supplies. Although a bear is unlikely to attack a person and would probably run away if screamed at, few people are willing to do so. Most people drop the pack and run the other way. This, of course, delights the bear. In some places, the Park Service installed some metal barrels with lids to help campers keep their supplies safe from bears. Although the bears were unable to open these containers, the effort was less than successful. Most campers, unable to tell the metal drums from rubbish cans, never used them for the intended purpose. 56. Feeding bears on people’s food .
A. brings the people a lot of fun B. can cause problems C. often causes injuries and deaths D. helps bears survive 57. If people had never fed bears, the bears . A. might be satisfied with what they had originally B. would have starved long before C. wouldn’t have enough food supply D. would have hunted for other kind of food 58. Which of the following is TRUE? A. If fed on sandwiches and hot dogs, the bears would no longer eat roots, twigs and insects. B. It’s likely that bears would hurt people if the people didn’t give up their food. C. Most people would frighten away the bears that would temp their food. D. Seeing a pack, the bear would quickly snatch it and run away with it. 59. Bear-proof containers didn’t work because . A. bears were clever enough to get the food in them B. they were left open in the open air C. people were not sure of their use D. they were once used as rubbish cans B A woman came out of her house and saw three old men sitting in her front yard. She said, "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat." "Is the man of the house home?‖ they asked. "No", she replied, "He's out." "Then we cannot come in", they replied. In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. "Go to tell them I am home and invite them in!" The woman went out and invited the men in. "We do not go into a house together," they replied. "Why is that?" she asked. One of the old men explained that their names were Wealth(财富), Success and Love. Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home." The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed and he suggested inviting Wealth to fill their home with wealth. And his wife wanted to invite Success; but their daughter-in-law suggested they should invite Love so that their home would be filled with love. At last the husband said to his wife. "Go out and invite Love to be our guest." The woman went out and asked the three old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest." Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other two also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?" The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would have stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever he goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!" 60. The best title for this passage would be __________. A. A Woman and Three Men B. Wealth, Success and Love C.

C Towards the end of Middle English, a sudden change in pronunciation started, with vowels being pronounced shorter and shorter. From the 16th century the British had contact with people from around the world. This means that many new words and phrases entered the language. The invention of printing also meant that there was a common language in print. Books became cheaper and more people learned to read. Spelling and grammar became fixed and the dialect （方言）of London became the standard. In 1604, the first English dictionary was published. The numbers of words in Early Modern English and Late Modern English differ. Late Modern English has a lot more words because of two main factors: firstly, the Industrial Revolution created a need for new words; secondly, the British Empire covered one quarter of the earth’s surface, and the English language took in foreign words from many countries. From around 1600, the English colonization(殖民地化)of North America resulted in the creation of American English. Some English pronunciation and words froze when they reached America. In some ways, American English is more like the English of Shakespeare than modern British English. Some expressions that the British call ― Americanisms‖ are in fact original （原先的）British expressions that were preserved (保存) in the colonies but were lost in Britain. Spanish also had an influence on American English, with words like canyon, ranch, stampede and vigilante being examples of Spanish words that entered English. French words and West African words also influenced American English. Today, American English is the most influential(有影响力的). But there are many other kinds of English around the world, including Australian English, New Zealand English, Canadian English, South African English , Indian English and Caribbean English. They have differences. 63. What can we know from Paragraph 1? A. The dialect of London became the standard in the year 1604. B. Vowels were pronounced longer towards the end of Middle English C. The first English dictionary was published in the early 17th century. D. Many new words entered English because many people moved to Britain. 64. From Paragraph 2, we know that the Industrial Revolution __________. A. required spelling and grammar to be fixed B. required a greater number of English words C. caused many old English words to be useless D. led to the English colonization of North America. 65. The underlined word ―froze‖ in Paragraph 3 shows that some English words in America_____. A. became longer B. greatly changed C. a little changed D. stayed as they were 66. What will the paragraph following this passage most probably discuss? A. The development of Modern English B. How the English vocabulary became larger C. Differences among the different kinds of English D. Differences between Middle English and Modern English D
The quality of drinking water in Shanghai will meet European Union standard by 2010 and, a decade later, citizens in Shanghai will drink the best water in the world. These were the goals set out by the Shanghai Water Authority. With the city’s population expected to increase only slightly and the economy to boom by 2020, Chen Yin, and official with the water authority, said Shanghai’s water consumption will not increase from its present amount. Zhang Yue, director of the Urban Construction Division under the Ministry of Construction, said, ―Shanghai is the first city in the country to publicize these ambitions. They will not be easy to achieve.‖ He said water saving will help keep the sustainable development of China’s economy. Saving one cubic meter of water means saving the city’s infrastructure（基础设施）costs by 10,000 Yuan. Last year, Shanghai saved 300 million cubic meters of water either from readjustment of industrial structure or the employment of new technology. ―The aim is to arouse public awareness of the seriousness of water shortages,‖ Chen said. ―The abundant surface water and amount of rain of the city are so misleading that they result in improper use of water.‖ Shanghai lacks drinkable water. The Huangpu River, which supplies 80 percent of the city’s drinkable water, is nearing exhaustion. The city, therefore, has been exploring new sources from the Yangtze River and growing forests along it to conserve quality water. Besides penning regulations, the authority is popularizing technology among the public to efficiently cut the amount of water used. At present, the city has 600， 000 family toilets, each using 13 liters of water per flush. These are to be renovated（整修）to use only 9 liters of water per flush. The authority is renovating the first 200 toilets for households – at a cost of 40 Yuan each. In three years, all the toilets will be renovated, which saves the city nearly 15 million Yuan every year in water conservation. Another task the city is engaged in is the treatment of sewage（污水）to improve the water environment. At present the city can only treat 44 percent of its daily 5.04 million tons of waste water. To meet the total demand, 27 more sewage treatment factories are to be established with an estimated investment of 18 billion Yuan. 67. According to the passage, some people have the wrong opinion of using water because_______. A. the renovating of family toilets will save plenty of water B. about half of waste water has been treated already C. advanced technology makes people use water as much as possible D. there is plenty surface water and large amount of rain at present 68. The authority is renovating the first 200 toilets for households to . A. make people’s living more convenient B. improve people’s living standards C. ease employment pressure D. meet the total demand of water 69. Which group of measures are all mentioned in the passage to save water? a. improve drinking water quality b. change some industrial structure c. introduce or use some new technology d. speed the economic development of Shanghai e. renovate some family toilets f. build more sewage treatment factories A. a, b, c, d B. b, c, e, f C. b, c, d, e D. a, b, e, f
70. We can infer from the passage that ________. A. the boom of economy will need a larger amount of water in the future B. citizens today in Shanghai drink the best quality of water in the world C. not everyone today in Shanghai is aware of water shortage D. all the family toilets will be renovated to save water within 3 years

This is not necessary so, however. Anyone can become a better student if he or she wants to. Here’s how: 1. Plan your time carefully. When you plan your week, you should make a list of things that you have to do. After making this list, you should make a schedule of your time. First your time for eating, sleeping, dressing, etc. then decide a good, regular time for studying. Don’t forget to set aside enough time for entertainment. A weekly schedule may not solve all your problems, but it will force you to realize what is happening to your time.[GkStK.Com] 2. Find a good place to study. Look around the house for a good study area. Keep this space, which may be a desk or simply a corner of your room, free of everything but study materials. No games, radios, or television! When you sit down to study, concentrate on the subject. 3. Make good use of your time in class. Take advantage of class time to listen to everything the teachers say. Really listening in class means less work later. Taking notes will help you remember what the teacher says. 4. Study regularly. When you get home from school, go over your notes. Review the important points that your teacher mentioned in class. If you know what your teacher is going to discuss the next day, read that material will become more meaningful, and you will remember it longer. 5. Develop a good attitude about tests. The purpose of a test is to show what you have learned about a subject. They help you remember your new knowledge. The world won’t end if you don’t pass a test, so don’t be overly worried. There are other methods that might help you with your studying. You will probably discover many others after you have tried these.

I feel I am a little too fat. What’s worse, I am putting on weight all the time. I am very worried about my figure and how I look. I even fear that some of my classmates laugh at me. At one time, I tried to work out in a gym two or three times, but I finally dropped just because I had no time and always felt very tired after doing exercise. Once I tried going on a diet. However, after about a week, I could not go on because I felt so hungry that I was not able to continue my studies. Then I took weight-loss pills in secret. Shortly after, they did work and I was losing weight fast. But I felt tired and weak sometimes. I know those pills usually have bad effects on our health. Thus, I don’t know what I should do. Could you give me some advice? Yours, Li Hong
