At 9:00 Dick Spivak's bank telephoned and said his payment was late. "The check is in the post," Dick replied quickly. At 11:45 Dick left for a 12:00 meeting across town. Arriving late, he explained that traffic（交通）had been had. That evening, Dick's girlfriend wore a new dress. He hated it. "It looks just great on you," he said. Three lies in one day! Yet Dick Spivak is just an ordinary man. Each time, he told himself that sometimes the truth causes too many problems. Most of us tell much the same white lies, harmless untruths that help to save trouble. How often do we tell white lies? It depends in part on our age, education, and even where we live. According to one U.S. study, women are more truthful than men, and honesty increases as we get older. While most people use little white lies to make life easier, the majority of Americans care about honesty in both public and personal life. They say that people today are less honest than they were ten years ago. Although it is believed that things are getting worse, lying seems to be an age-old human problem. The French philos（哲学家）Vauvenarges, writing in the eighteenth century, touched on the truth when he wrote, "All men are born truthful and liars （说 谎者）." 41. When the writer says "Dick Spivak is just an ordinary man", he means_____. A .it is common that people tell white lies B. Dick could do nothing about bad traffic C .it is common that people delay their payment D. Dick found it had to deal with everyday proplems 42.According to the text, most Americans_____. A. hate white lies C. value honesty B. believe white lies D. consider others dishonest
43.Vauvenarges' remark suggests that_____.
A. lying is an age-old human problem B. dishonesty increases as people get older C. people were dishonest in the 18th century D. it is social conditions that make people tell lies B The report came to the British on May 21,1941. The German battleship Bismarck, the most powerful warship in the world, was moving out into the Atlantic Ocean. Her task: to destroy the ships carrying supplies from the United States to war-torn England. The British had feared such a task. No warship they had could match the Bismarck in speed or in firepower. The Bismarck has eight 15-inch guns and 81 smaller guns. She could move at 30 nautical mile（海里）an hour. She was believed to be unsinkable. However, the British had to sink her. They sent out a task force headed by their best battleship Hood to hunt down the Bismarck. On May 24, the Hood found the Bismarck. It was a meeting that the German commander Luetjens did not want to see. His orders were to destroy the British ships that were carrying supplies, but to stay away from a fight with British warships. The battle didn't last long. The Bismarck's first torpedo （鱼雷） hit the Hood, which went down taking all but three of her 1,419 men with her. But in the fight, the Bismarck was slightly damaged （损坏） .Her commander decided to run for repairs to France, which had at that time been taken by the Germans. The British force followed her. However, because of the Bismarck's speed and the heavy fog, they lost sight of her. For two days, every British ship in the Atlantic tried to find the Bismarck, but with no success. Finally, she was sighted by a plane from Ireland. Trying to slow the Bismarck down so that their ships could catch up with her, the British fired at her from the air. The Bismarck was hit. On the morning of May 27, the last battle was fought. Four British ships fired on the Bismarck, and she was finally sunk. 44. Many people believed that the Bismarck could not be defeated because she_____. A. was fast and powerful C. was under Luetjens' command B. had more men on board D. had bigger guns than other ships
45 .We learn from the text that on 24 May_____. A. the British won the battle against the Bismarck B. the Bismarck won the battle against the British C. the British gunfire damaged the Bismarch seriously
D. the Bismarck succeeded in keeping away from the British 46. Luetjens tried to sail to France in order to_____. A. have the ship repaired C. get help from the French A. The British air strikes. C. Gunfire from the British warships. B. join the other Germans D. get away from the British B. The damage done by the Hood. D. Luetjen's decision to run for France. C As prices and building costs keep rising, the "do-it-yourself"(DIY)trend（趋势）in the U.S. continues to grow. "We needed furniture（家具）for our living room, "says John Ross, "and we just didn't have enough money to buy it. So we decided to try making a few tables and chairs." John got married six months ago, and like many young people these days, they are struggling to make a home at a time when the cost of living is very high. The Rosses took a 2-week course for $ 280 at a night school. Now they build all their furniture and make repairs around the house. Jim Hatfield has three boys and his wife died. He has a full-time job at home as well as in a shoe making factory. Last month, he received a car repair bill for $ 420."I was deeply upset about it. Now I've finished a car repair course, I should be able to fix the car by myself." John and Jim are not unusual people. Most families in the country are doing everything they can to save money so the can fight the high cost of living .If you want to become a "do-it-yourselfer", you can go to DIY classes .And for those who don't have time to take a course, there are books that tell you how you can do things yourself. 48.John and his wife went to evening classes to learn how to_____. A. run a DIY shop C. save time and money A. makes shoes in his home C. does his own car and home repairs A .his car repairs cost too much C. he could no possible do two jobs 51.

50.Jim Hatfield decided to become a do-it yourselfer when_____.
D How Room Designs Affect Our Work and Feelings Architects have long had the feeling that the places we live in can affect our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. But now scientists are giving this feeling an empirical(经验的， 实证的) basis. They are discovering how to design spaces that promote creativity, keep people focused and lead to relaxation. Researches show that aspects of the physical environment can influence creativity. In 2007, Joan Meyers-Levy at the University of Minnesota, reported that the height of a room's ceiling affects how people think. Her research indicates that higher ceilings encourage people to think more freely, which may lead them to make more abstract connections. Low ceilings, on the other hand, may inspire a more detailed outlook. In additions to ceiling height, the view afforded by a building may influence an occupant's ability to concentrate. Nancy Wells and her colleagues at Cornell University found in their study that kids who experienced the greatest increase in greenness as a result of a family move made the most gains on a standard test of attention. Using nature to improve focus of attention ought to pay off academically, and it seems to, according to a study led by C. Kenneth Tanner, head of the School Design & Planning Laboratory at the University of Georgia. Tanner and his team found that students in classrooms with unblocked views of at least 50 feet outside the window had higher scores on tests of vocabulary, language arts and maths than did students whose classrooms primarily overlooked roads and parking lots. Recent study on room lighting design suggests than dim(暗淡的) light helps people to loosen up. If that is true generally, keeping the light low during dinner or at parties could increase relaxation. Researchers of Harvard Medical School also discovered that furniture with rounded edges could help visitors relax. So far scientists have focused mainly on public buildings. "We have a very limited number of studies, so we're almost looking at the problem through a straw(吸管)," architect David Allison says. "How do you take answers to very specific questions and make broad, generalized use of them? That's what we're all struggling with." 52. What does Joan Meyers-Levy focus on in her research? A. Light. B. Ceilings. C. Windows. D. Furniture. 53．The passage tells us that ______. A. the shape of furniture may affect people's feelings B. lower ceilings may help improve students' creativity C. children in a dim classroom may improve their grades D. students in rooms with unblocked views may feel relaxed 54．The underlined sentence in the last paragraph probably means that ______. A. the problem is not approached step by step B. the researches so far have faults in themselves
C. the problem is too difficult for researchers to detect D. research in this area is not enough to make generalized patterns 55. Which of the following shows the organization of the passage?

More and more students are using e-dictionaries. E-dictionaries cost a little more than traditional dictionaries, but they are small the easy to carry. Moreover, they are convenient to use. Just type in a new word and its meaning will come up in a second. E-dictionaries also offer the exact pronunciation of each word, which really helps students a lot. But some students use the e-dictionary as a game player and this sometimes makes them fail in their school work. So I think the students may take advice from their teachers and parents on how to use e-dictionaries properly.
