阅读理解B 42、 There was once an ant that was very thirsty. It ran here and there looking for some water but could not find any. Then suddenly, when the ant was almost ready to die of thirst, a la
rge drop of water fell on it. The ant drank the water, which saved its life. The water was actually a tear from a young girl who was crying. Because of her sadness, the tear had magical qualities and suddenly the ant could speak the language of human beings. The ant looked up and saw the young girl sitting in front of a huge pile of seeds. "Why are you sad?" asked the ant. "I'm the prisoner of a giant." the girl told the ant. "He won't let me go until I've made three separate heaps of grain, barley （大麦）and rye（黑麦）out of this huge pile of seeds in which they are all mixed together." "That will take you a month!" the ant said, looking at the huge pile of seeds. "I know," the girl cried, "and if I haven't finished by tomorrow, the giant will eat me for his supper!" "Don't cry," the ant said, "my friends and I will help you." Soon thousands of ants were at work, separating the three kinds of seeds.

thousands of kilometers. These great forests are the oceans of trees. There are thousands and thousands of different kinds of plants and animals. However, the world's forests are getting smaller all the time. We are cutting down the trees because we need wood, and we need more farmland. Some people say that there will not be any forests like these in 20 or 30 years. What will happen if they disappear? If we cut down our forests, a lot of plants and animals will disappear from the world. In a lot of places the new farmland will soon look like the old deserts. Crops will not grow there.

contain the quickest and the most efficient means of communicating within their respective culture. To learn a foreign language is to learn another culture. In the words of a poet and philosopher, "As many languages as one speaks, so many lives one lives." A culture and its language are as necessary as brain and body; while one is a part of the other, neither can function without the other. In learning a foreign language, the best beginning would be starting with the non-language elements of the language: its gestures, its body language, etc. Eye contact is extremely important in English. Direct eye contact leads to understanding, or, as the English saying goes, seeing eye-to-eye. We can never see eye-to-eye with a native speaker of English until we have learned to look directly into his eyes. (1)、The best title for this passage is Language and Culture. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、According to this passage, the only way to learn a foreign language is to begin by learning its body language. A：T B：F 答案：B (3)、According to this passage, gestures are pictures in a language. A：T B：F 答案：B (4)、To learn a foreign language is to learn another culture. A：T B：F 答案：A
(5)、Direct eye contact leads to understanding in all cultures. A：T B：F 答案：B 47、 Taking away a city's rubbish is a big job. Every day trucks come into a city to collect it.
Most rubbish is made up of things we can't eat or use. If we kept these things, we would soon have a mountain of rubbish. In some cities the rubbish is collected and taken outside the city to a dump. Often the city dump is placed where the ground is low or there is a big hole. The kitchen rubbish is broken into small pieces and sent into the sewage（污水，排水）system. The sewage system takes away the used water from toilets, bathtubs and other places. To keep mice and flies away, some earth is used to cover the newly dumped rubbish. Later, grass may be planted on the rubbish-filled land. Finally, a house or a school may be built there, and then you'd never know that this had once been an old rubbish dump. In other cities the rubbish is burnt in special places. The fire burns everything except the metal.Sometimes the metal can be used again in factories where things are made of metal. The food parts of rubbish are put in special piles where they slowly change into something called humus（腐殖质）, which looks like black earth. It is rich with the kinds of things that feed plants and help make them grow. (1)、You can most probably read this kind of passage in a telephone book. A：T B：F 答案：B (2)、The main idea of the passage is to tell people to take useful things out of rubbish. A：T B：F 答案：B (3)、The underlined word "sewage" in the second paragraph means laundry. A：T B：F 答案：B (4)、According to the passage, the food parts of rubbish can be used again to feed plants.

snow has looked red, green, yellow, or black. There have been snowflakes of almost every color. Think how it would seem to have colored snowflakes coming down all around you. Black snow fell in France one year. Another year grey snow fell in Japan. It was found that the snow was mixed with ashes. This made it look dark. Red snow had come down in other countries. When this happened, the snow was mixed with red dust. Most snow looks white, but it is really the color of ice. Snow is ice that comes from snow cloud. Each snowflake begins with a small drop of frozen water. More water forms around this drop. The way the water freezes gives the snowflakes its shape. No two snowflakes are ever just the same size or shape. Sometimes the snowflakes are broken when they come down. Other snowflakes melt as they fall. All snowflakes are flat and have six sides, if they are not broken or melted. When the air is cold and dry, the falling snowflakes are small and hard. If the air wet and warm, the snowflakes are big and soft. Would you be surprised to see snowflakes as big as your head falling from the sky? It happened once in the United States. It could happen again. (1)、The first two paragraphs mainly tell us that sometimes snow has different colors. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、No two snowflakes are just the same size, but all snowflakes are hard. A：T B：F 答案：B (3)、Snowflakes begin with cloud. A：T B：F

(5)、Black snow fell only in European Countries. A：T B：F 答案：B 49、 Oil is so important that it is sometimes called "black gold". Almost half of our energy
comes from oil. We use it to run our cars and factories and to heat our homes, offices and schools. Many everyday things are made from oil. Your shirt may have oil in the material. The soap you wash your hands with might also be made from oil. Your favorite plastic toy is made from oil. Oil is hard to find, because it is trapped deep under the earth. Once the only way people knew there was oil someplace if it leaked out of the ground. Today, however, we have many ways of finding oil. One tool measures the pull of gravity. Places where gravity is weaker are more likely to have oil. Another tool is sound waves. Sound waves travel through different kinds of rocks at different speeds. We can use them to find the rocks that have oil in them. We need a lot of oil, and we are using up the oil wells we know about. Soon we must find new ways of looking for this "black gold". (1)、From this passage, we can know oil is a source of energy. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、According to the passage, we can tell that oil is found only under water. A：T B：F 答案：B (3)、Sound waves travel through different kinds of rocks at different speeds. A：T B：F
答案：A (4)、Many things are made from oil. A：T B：F 答案：A (5)、The main idea of the whole story is that oil is important for us but hard to find. A：T B：F 答案：A 50、 Some British and American people like to invite friends and colleagues for a meal at
home. You should not be upset (心烦意乱) if your English friends don't invite you home. It doesn't mean they don't like you. Dinner parties usually start between 7 and 8 p.m., and end at about 11. Ask your hosts what time you should arrive. It's polite to bring flowers, chocolates or a bottle of wine as a present. Do you want to be extra (特别地) polite? Say how much you like the room, or the pictures on the wall. But remember - not to ask how much things cost. You'll probably start the meal with soup, or something small as a "starter" (第一道菜), then you'll have meat or fish with vegetables, and then a dessert (甜食), followed by coffee. It's polite to finish everything on your plate and to take more if you want it. Some people eat bread with their meal, but not everyone does. Before they take out their cigarettes after the meal, most people usually ask, "Do you mind if I smoke here?" Did you enjoy the evening? Call your hosts the next day, or write them a short "thank you" letter. Perhaps it seems funny to you, but British and American people say, "thank you, thank you, and thank you." all the time.

"Mom and Dad, I'm coming home, but I've a favor to ask. I have a friend. I'd like to bring him home with me." "Sure," they replied, "we'd love to meet him." "There's something you should know," the son continued, "he was injured pretty badly in the fighting. He stepped on a land mine （地雷） and lost an arm and a leg. He has nowhere else to go, and I want him to live with us." "We're sorry to hear that, son. But, maybe we can help him find somewhere to live." "No, Mom and Dad, I want him to live with us." "Son," said the father, "you don't know what you're asking. Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden to us. We have our own lives to live, and we can't let something like this interfere with our lives. I think you should just come home and forget about this guy. He'll find a way to live on his own." At that point, the son hung up the phone. The parents heard nothing more from him. A few days later, however, they received a call from the San Francisco police. Their son had died after falling from a building. The police believed he had killed himself. The grief-stricken（悲痛欲绝的） parents flew to San Francisco and were taken to the city morgue（太平间） to identify the body of their son.

His first job at the studio was writing captions （脚本） for silent movies. Within two years, he was writing scripts （剧本） and working as an assistant director. For the rest of the 1920s, Hitchcock worked on one film after another in Britain and Germany. Filming was often a rough-and-ready （匆忙做成的） affair and the assistant director was required to step in and plug gaps. A cameraman went missing, Hitchcock became a cameraman. A scene needed rewriting, Hitchcock rewrote it. Someone needed to be in charge of money when the film crew was on location, Hitchcock looked after the money. At the same time, this being the era of silent movies, Hitchcock was learning the language of
cinema: telling a story－not through dialogue, but through visual images（视觉影象）. This led to his success later. When he began to direct his own films, first in Britain and later in Hollywood, he was determined to make films that held the audience's attention and kept tension（紧张感）. He succeeded. Hitchcock's ability to put you on the edge of your seat makes him one of the greatest makers of suspense（悬念） movies.

54、Background music may seem harmless, but it can have a powerful effect on those who hear it. Recorded background music first found its way into factories, shops and restaurants in the USA. Very soon it spread to other parts of the world. Now it is becoming difficult to go shopping or eat a meal without listening to background music. To begin with, background music was intended simply to create a soothing （舒适的） atmosphere. Recently, however, it's becoming a big business. An American marketing expert has shown that music can boost（提升） sales or increase factory production by as much as a third. But it has to be the light music. Lively music has no effect at all on sales. Slow music can increase receipts（收入） by 34%. This is probably because shoppers slow down and have more opportunity to spot items they would like to buy. Yet, slow music isn't always the answer. The expert found that in restaurants slow music meant customers took longer to eat their meals, which reduced overall sales. So restaurant owners might be well advised to play faster music to keep the customers moving－unless, of course, the resulting indigestion（消化不良） leads to complaints. (1)、Background music was first used in the factories, shops and restaurants in the USA. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、An American marketing expert has found background music can increase sales or factory production. A：T B：F 答案：A (3)、Slow music has no effect on sales. A：T B：F 答案：B (4)、Slow music is useless in factories in increasing sales. A：T B：F 答案：B (5)、Restaurant owners are advised to play lively music to increase overall sales. A：T

The origin of this holiday is uncertain but according to one story it gets its name from a Christian named Valentine who lived in Rome during the 3rd century A.D. His job was to perform marriages for Christian couples. Unfortunately, the Emperor of Rome didn't allow Christian marriages. So they had to be performed in secret. Finally Valentine was arrested and put into prison. While he was in prison he fell in love with the daughter of the prison guard. After one year the Emperor offered to release Valentine if he would stop performing Christian marriages. Valentine refused and so he was killed in February, 270 A.D. Before he was killed Valentine sent a love letter to the daughter of the prison guard. He signed the letter "from your Valentine". That was the first Valentine. Today Valentines are cards usually red and shaped like hearts with messages of love written in them. On Valentine's Day tens of millions of people send and receive Valentines.

One of them, for example, was the great Italian artist, Leonardo Da Vinci. In the sixteenth century he made designs for machines that would fly, but they were never built. Throughout history, other less famous men had wanted to fly. An example was a man in England 800 years ago. He made a pair of wings from chicken feathers. Then he fixed them to his body and jumped into air from a tall building. He did not fly very far. Instead, he fell to the ground and broke every bone in his body. The first real steps took place in France, in 1783. Two brothers, the Montgolfiers, made a very large "hot air balloon". They knew that hot air rises. Why not fill a balloon with it? The balloon was made of cloth and paper. In September of that year, the King and Queen of France came to see the balloon. They watched it carry the very first air passengers into the sky. The passengers were a sheep and a chicken. We do not know how they felt about the trip. But we do know that the trip lasted eight minutes and that the animals landed safely. Two months later, two men did the same thing. They rose above Paris in a balloon of the same kind. Their trip lasted twenty-five minutes and they traveled about eight kilometers.

(5)、The two Frenchmen rose above Paris in November 1783. A：T B：F 答案：A 57、The fourth Thursday in November is called Thanksgiving Day. In the United States, it is an annual occasion to show thanks to God for his goodness. As a historical, national and religious holiday, Thanksgiving Day began with the English in Plymouth Colony. As far back as 1621, after a long bitter winter and the gathering of the first harvest, these early settlers shared a feast with the local Indians and offered prayers of thanksgiving. The first national Thanksgiving Day was proclaimed （颁布） by President Washington on November 26, 1789. President Lincoln revived the custom in 1863. It was not until 1941 that the U.S. Congress adopted a resolution（决定）, setting the fourth Thursday of November as an annual Thanksgiving Day. Thus what began as a religious celebration of the harvest has since become a nationwide holiday. Now Thanksgiving Day is usually a family day, celebrated with a traditional turkey dinner and a happy reunion. Schools are closed on Thanksgiving Day and the day after. Many people, including students studying in another state, often travel long distances to spend the holiday at home. (1)、The passage is mainly about how Thanksgiving Day came into being. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、Thanksgiving Day was first celebrated in 1621 by English settlers of the Plymouth Colony. A：T B：F 答案：A (3)、President Washington set Thursday, November 26, 1789 as the First National Thanksgiving Day.

59、Our child's behavior is greatly influenced by the way we react to what he has done. Our reactions help to determine whether our child will repeat his behavior or whether he will do something different. This statement is a very important part of a principle of behavioral psychology. The principle states that a behavior is influenced or affected by how the environment ---people, places and things ---- immediately responds to the behavior. Perhaps without realizing it, you have used this principle many times. On the occasion when you told your child what a good boy he was after he cleaned up his room, you used the principle. When you sent your child to his room for fighting with his brother, you used the principle. When I gave Kim a cookie after she started to cry, I used the principle. In each of these examples, a particular behavior occurred first ---- cleaning up a room, fighting, and crying. In addition, there was a reaction to each behavior ---- the child was praised, sent to his room,
or given a cookie. By these actions, we have influenced the previous behaviors and have helped to determine whether those behaviors will occur again in the future. (1)、The lecture is mainly about Children's behavior and our response. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、The lecture is based on the principle in behavioral psychology. A：T B：F 答案：A (3)、The audience at this lecture might be social workers. A：T B：F 答案：B

for an evening of food, drink and conversation. Formal dinners in fine homes and hotels in the United States are much the same as formal dinners anywhere in the world. But as most people in the United States have no servants, their dinner parties at home are decidedly informal. As many new small homes have no separate dining room or just have very small dining space, guests can
also serve themselves and eat in the living room, holding their plates or trays on their knees. A more enjoyable form of entertainment is the picnic. Americans are great picnickers, and almost every family has a picnic basket. Summer invitations are often for a picnic at a park or in the open countryside.

training must show good disposition, intelligence, physical fitness and sense of responsibility. At the age of about fourteen months, a guide dog begins an intensive course that lasts from three to five months. It becomes accustomed to the leather harness and stiff leather handle it will wear when guiding its blind owner. The dog learns to watch the traffic and to cross the street safely. It also learns to obey such commands as "forward", "left", "right" and "sit" and to disobey
any command that might lead its owner into danger. The most important part of the training course is a four-week program in which the guide dog and its future owner learn to work together. However, many blind people are unsuited by personality to work with dogs. Only a tenth of the blind find a guide dog useful. (1)、A guide dog is a dog trained to help the blind.

The story said: "Were you ever in a hospital when you were small? How did you feel?" The doctors in Children's Hospital are asking for money for children's toys. Some children in the hospital must stay in bed for many weeks. Toys are needed to keep the sick children happy and quiet. Money for them can be sent to the hospital. After Mrs. Weeks read the story，she said，"This story gave me an idea." "You want us to bring some money for the toys." "We could bring some of our own toys for

Let's begin to make toys tomorrow, "said Mrs. Weeks. On Saturday afternoon，Mrs. Weeks took the children to the hospital with the toys made by her students. The children in the hospital felt very happy to see the toys. So did the children in the class. A few days later，Mrs. Weeks read another newspaper story to the class: Some school pupils brought toys to Children's Hospital last week. The toys were made by the pupils of Grade Three in Green Street School. The doctors said，"We have never had so many wonderful toys. Our children are very happy with them.

off a bike and break your arms，it happens very quickly. But computer injuries happen slowly. You probably know how to ride a bike safely. Now learn to use a computer safely. Your eyes Too much light can injure your eyes，so never sit too close to a computer screen. Your eyes should be at least 50cm from the screen. Remember to look away from it sometimes. This gives your eyes a rest. When you use a computer, the window should be on your left or your right. If it is behind you, the light will reflect on (反射) the screen. If the window is in front of you, the sun and the screen will both shine into your eyes. Your hands and wrists Hand and wrist injuries can happen because the hands and wrists are moved in the same way hundreds of times. If you use a keyboard for a long time，follow these three rules:1) Rest your wrists on some thing. 2) Keep your elbows (肘) at the same height as the keyboard. 3) Stop sometimes and exercise your hands，wrists and fingers in a different way. Your back Some people sit for many hours in front of a computer. If you sit in the wrong way，you can injure your back or your neck. So you should sit with your back straight. The top part of the screen should be in front of your eyes. Your forearms，wrists，hands and the upper part of your legs should all be parallel (平行) to the floor. If you are sitting for a long time， get up every 30 minutes and exercise your arms，legs and neck. Enjoy your computer，but use it safely. (1)、A computer screen may injure your eyes if your eyes are too close to it. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、Hand and wrist injuries are caused when you get plenty of exercise. A：T B：F 答案：B

computers will be used in lots of aspects of everyday life. It is thought that we won't have to go shopping because we will be able to get most things which are sold in shops on the Internet. There will be no more books because we will be able to get all texts from computers. The Internet will be used to play games，see films and buy food. Most telephone calls will be made by computers. Some people are glad about these new ways of shopping and communicating. Others do not think that computers will replace our old ways. Let's look at books，for example. Some people think that one day we will not read books made of paper. Instead，we will buy and read books using computers. We will read texts on small pocket computers. The computers will keep many different books in them at the same time. We won't need to turn lots of pages and paper will be saved. Computerized (计算机化的) books will be used more and more. Is Internet shopping such a pleasure as going to the shop? Many people say it is not. It is a pleasure to go into shops and look at things you want to buy. Also probably people won't like to read large texts on our computers. Because paper books seem to be more friendly. Maybe computers won't change these two habits. (1)、In the first paragraph it is thought that people will use computers to play games，go shopping and make telephone calls. A：T B：F 答案：A
(2)、Computerized books won't be very expensive is NOT mentioned in the passage. A：T B：F 答案：A (3)、The underlined sentence in the last paragraph means people like to read paper books.

A：T B：F 答案：B 66、 Do you want to know something about the history of weather? Don't look at the sky.
Don't look for old weather reports. Looking at the tree rings is more important. Some weather reports go back only one century，but some trees can show us an exact record of the weather even further back. It's clear that a tree would grow best in a climate with lots of sunlight and rainfall. It is also expected that little sunlight or rainfall would limit the growth of a tree. The change from a favorable (有利的) to an unfavorable climate can be reading the tree rings in tree trunk. To find out the weather of ten years ago，count the rings of a tree trunk from the outside to the inside. If the tenth ring is far from the other rings，then we are sure that lots of sunny and rainy weather happened. If the rings are close together，then the climate was bad for the tree. Studying tree rings is important not only for the history of the weather，but also for the history of man. In a place of New Mexico you can find only sand－no trees and no people. However，many centuries ago a lot of people lived there. They left suddenly. Why? A scientist studied the dead tree rings which had grown there. He decided that the people had to leave because they had cut down all the trees. Trees were used to make fires and buildings. So, after the people cut down the trees，they had to move.
(1)、It is understood that in a favorable climate tree rings grow far from each other. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、Trees brought lots of sunlight and rainfall. A：T B：F 答案：B (3)、The scientists are interested in studying tree rings because they can tell whether the climate was favorable or not. A：T B：F 答案：A (4)、Studying dead tree rings shows how the people left. A：T B：F 答案：B (5)、The people had to leave the place of New Mexico because they had cut down all the trees. A：T B：F 答案：A 67、 Have you ever listened to young children talking in the playground? They are always
boasting. They say things like, "My Dad's car is bigger than your Dad's, "and "My Mom is smarter than yours." They particularly like to boast about their families. There were three little boys, Harry, Ted and Gavin, who were always boasting. Gavin was the worst. Everything about his family was always the best or the biggest or the most expensive. Whatever the others said, he could always go on better. One day when they were walking to school, Harry said, "My father had a bath twice a week," Ted spoke next. " That's nothing," he said. "Having a bath twice a week is dirty. My father has a bath every day， sometimes twice a day." Ted looked at Gavin. Now it was his turn. But what could he say? " This time, " Ted thought, " I'm going to win." Gavin didn't know what to say. He couldn't say that his father had a bath three times a day. That was silly. He walked on in silence. Ted smiled at Harry，and Harry smiled back. They were sure that for once they had beaten Gavin. They reached the school gates. Still Gavin
said nothing. They went into class. Morning break， lunch time and afternoon break all passed. Still Gavin said nothing. "We've won, " Ted said to Harry, but he spoke too soon. On the way home, Gavin said, "My Dad is so clean that he doesn't have to bathe at all." (1)、According to the passage，the meaning of the word "boast" is " to talk big ". A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、Harry boasted about the number of times his father had a bath every week. A：T B：F 答案：A (3)、Gavin boasted the most. A：T B：F 答案：B (4)、Ted's father often had a bath twice a day. A：T B：F 答案：B (5)、"He spoke too soon" in the last paragraph means he was wrong. A：T B：F 答案：A 68、 Chess must be one of the oldest games in the world. An Arab traveller in India in the year
900 wrote that it was played 'long, long ago.' Chess was probably invented in India, and it has been played everywhere from Japan to Europe since 1400. The name 'chess' is interesting. When one player is attacking the other's king, he says in English, 'check'. When the king has been caught and cannot move anywhere, he says 'check mate'. These words come from Persian 'Shah mat' means 'the king is dead'. That is when the game is over, and one player has won. Such an old game changes very slowly. The rules have not always been the same as they are now. For example, at one time the queen could only move one square at a time. Now she is the strongest piece on the board. It would be interesting to know why this has happened. Chess takes
time and thought, but it is a game for all kinds of people. You don't have to be a champion in order to enjoy it. It is not always played by two people sitting at the same table. The first time the Americans beat the Russians was in a match played by radio. Some of the chess masters are able to play many people at the same time. The record was when one man played 400 games! It is said that some people played chess by post. This must make chess the slowest game in the world. (1)、Chess was played in India long before 900. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、One player has won the game when he attacks the other player's king. A：T B：F 答案：B (3)、Chess is a game for all sorts of people. A：T B：F 答案：A (4)、Only two people can play chess sitting at the same table. A：T B：F 答案：B (5)、According to the old rules of the game, the king could not move anywhere. A：T B：F 答案：B 69、No one knows who made the first ice cream. Some people think that water ices and milk ices may have been made by the Chinese between three thousand and four thousand years ago. In time, the dish reached India. The Indians, in turn, may have passed on the secret to the Arabs and Persians. The Persians called their dish Sharbat, from which our word sherbet（冰冻果子露） comes. Marco Polo, an Italian who traveled widely in the thirteenth century, noted that he found the Chinese had long been making ices out of fruit juices and milk. From the fourteenth century on,
ices became popular, first in Venice and then throughout Italy. In 1533, when Catherine de Medicis left Italy to marry the future King Henry Ⅱof France, she took her cooks with her. They made desserts the French had never tasted before. Among them was "ice cream". For each day of the wedding festivities（庆祝活动，庆典） Catherine's cooks prepared a different flavor of her favorite dessert-"ice cream." At first ice cream was a luxury in France. Only rich people had money to buy it. Then, in 1660, a young man from Sicily, Francisco Procopio, arrived in Paris. He opened a shop that sold ice cream at prices people could afford. Procopio's"ice-cream parlor " became so popular that other shops were opened. About 1640, King Charles I introduced ice cream to England. He had heard it was popular in Italy and France. He served ice cream for dessert at a banquet. The surprise dish was a great success. The King ordered his cook to keep the recipe for ice cream a secret. Charles felt that only royalty should serve the dessert. But the secret soon leaked out. Ice cream quickly became popular in England too. (1)、This passage is mainly about the history of ice cream. A：T B：F 答案：A

答案：A (5)、Development of ice cream in France and other countries is discussed in the passage. A：T B：F 答案：A 70、 Large modern cities are too big to control. They impose their own living conditions on
the people who live in them. City-dwellers （居住在城市的人） have to adopt an unnatural way of life. They lose touch with the land and the rhythm of nature so that they are hardly conscious of the seasons. A few flowers in a public park may remind people that it is spring or summer and a few leaves on the roadside may remind them that it is autumn. Beyond that, what is going on in nature seems totally unrelated to them. All the simple, good things of life, such as sunshine and fresh air are far away. Tall buildings blot out （把…遮住）the sun, and waste gases from cars pollute the air. Even the distinction between day and night is lost. In the night, it is almost as bright and noisy as it is in the day and people are busy with what they hope to deal with. The funny thing about it all is that city-dwellers pay dearly for living in the city. The prices for houses are so high that it is often impossible for ordinary people to buy a house of their own. High rents must be paid for small flats which even country hens would dislike to live in. Moreover, the cost of living is very high. Everything you buy is likely to be more expensive than it would be in the country. (1)、It can be seen from the passage that the author doesn't like living in the city. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、According to the 1st paragraph, city-dwellers don't have a natural way of life. A：T B：F 答案：A (3)、The phrase "the rhythm of nature"in the 1st paragraph refers to the change of seasons. A：T B：F
答案：A (4)、The cost of living in large modern cities is very low. A：T B：F 答案：B (5)、It can be inferred from the passage that the author loves nature and hopes to be close to it. A：T B：F 答案：A
Can trees talk? Yes, but not in words. Scientists have reason to believe that trees do
communicate with each other. Not long ago, researchers learned some surprising things. First a willow tree attacked in the woods by caterpillars (毛虫) changed the chemistry of its leaves and made them taste so terrible that they got tired of the leaves and stopped eating them. Then even more astonishing, the tree sent out a special smell--a signal causing its neighbors to change the chemistry of their own leaves and make them less tasty. Communication, of course, doesn't need to be in words. We can talk to each other by smiling, raising our shoulders and moving our hands. We know that birds and animals use a whole vocabulary of songs, sounds, and movements. Bees dance their signals, flying in certain patterns that tell other bees where to find nectar (花蜜) for honey. So why shouldn't trees have ways of sending message? (1)、It's implied that caterpillars do not feed on leaves that have an unpleasant taste. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、The willow tree described in the passage protects itself by growing more branches. A：T B：F 答案：B (3)、The willow tree was able to communicate with other trees by giving off a special smell.
A：T B：F 答案：A (4)、It can be inferred from the passage that bees communicate by making special movements. A：T B：F 答案：A (5)、The author holds that the incident described in the passage must be checked more thoroughly. A：T B：F 答案：B 72、 The year was 1932. Amelia Earhart was flying alone from North America to England in a
small single-engined aeroplane. At midnight, several hours after she had left Newfoundland, she ran into bad weather. To make things worse, her altimeter (高度表) failed and she didn't know how high she was flying. At night, and in a storm, a pilot is in great difficulty without an altimeter. At times, her plane nearly plunged into the sea. Just before dawn, there was further trouble. Amelia noticed flames (火焰) coming from the engine. Would she be able to reach land? There was nothing to do except to keep going and to hope. In the end, Amelia Earhart did reach Ireland, and for the courage she had shown, she was warmly welcomed in England and Europe. When she returned to the United States, she was honored by President Hoover at a special dinner in the White House. From that time on, Amelia Earhart was famous. What was so important about her flight? Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly the Atlantic Ocean alone, and she had set a record of fourteen hours and fifty-six minutes. In the years that followed, Amelia Earhart made several flights across the United States, and on each occasion she set a new record for flying time. Amelia Earhart made these flights to show that women had a place in aviation and that air travel was useful.

Of course there are needles for sewing machines,
needles for injection, you name it. But few people think of the wonder a needle works in the hands of those who practice acupuncture. During the past ten years of so, I have been suffering from a terrible headache. It seems to be getting from bad to worse these days. Last night I got a sudden pain in my head. It was so terrible that I could hardly bear it. Although I swallowed all kinds of pain-killers, I didn't feel any better. It seemed that there was nothing I could do but phone for a doctor. One of our neighbors happened to be with us. He was not a doctor, but he timidly offered his help, saying "Do you mind if I tried acupuncture on you? These needles may possibly do you some good." I agreed. In a moment, he had taken out a few needles from his purse. Without a moment's delay, he fixed a few needles into the skin on my head here and there. Before long, I felt thoroughly relieved.
Just then, the doctor sped through my house and said,"Where is our patient?" "Sorry, Doctor, You are too late. It's killed!" I answered in delight. It's a miracle, isn't it? (1)、The word ''name'' in the first paragraph means to give a name to the needles.

He could learn to say any word except one. He could not say the name of his native town, Cotano. The man did everything he could to teach the parrot to say "Cotano" but he never
succeeded. At first he was very gentle with the bird, but gradually he lost his temper. "You stupid bird! Why can't you learn to say that One word! Say 'Cotano' or I'll kill you!" But the parrot would not say it. Many times the man screamed(大声叫), "Say 'Cotano' or I'll kill you!" But the bird would never repeat the name. Finally the man gave up. He picked up the parrot and threw him into the chicken house. "You are even more stupid than the chickens!" In the chicken house, there were four old chickens waiting to be killed for Sunday's dinner. The next morning, when he went out to the chicken house, the man opened the door. He was shocked by what he saw. He could not believe his eyes and ears. On the floor lay three dead chickens, the parrot was screaming at the fourth, "Say 'Cotano' or I'll kill you!"

A：T B：F 答案：B 75、 One way that scientists learn about man is by studying animals, such as mice and monkeys. The scientists in this laboratory are experimenting on mice. They are studying the relationship
between diet and health. At this time, over one hundred experiments are being done in this laboratory. In one of these experiments, the scientists are studying the relationship between the amount of food the mice eat and their health. The mice are in three groups. All three groups are receiving the same healthy diet. But the amount of food that each group is receiving is different. The first group is eating one cup of food each day, the second group is eating two cups, and the third group of mice is eating three cups. After three years, the healthiest group is the one that is only eating one cup of food each day. The mice in this group are thinner than normal mice. But they are more active. Most of the day, they are running, playing with one another, and using the equipment in their cages. Also, they are living longer. Mice usually live for two years. Most of the mice in this group are still alive after three years. The second group of mice is normal weight. They are healthy, too. They are active, but not as active as the thinner mice. But they are only living about two years, not the three years or more of the thinner mice. The last group of mice is receiving more food than the other two groups. Most of the day, these mice are eating or sleeping. They are not very active. These mice are living longer than the scientists thought - about a year and a half. But they aren't as healthy. They're sick more often than the other two groups. (1)、The scientists in the laboratory are studying the relationship between the amount of food and diet. A：T B：F 答案：B (2)、The first two groups are receiving the most food. A：T B：F 答案：B (3)、The first group is the thinnest because they do not have a healthy diet. A：T B：F 答案：B (4)、Normal mice usually live for two years. A：T
B：F 答案：A (5)、The text tells us that people who eat less and exercise more will live longer. A：T B：F 答案：A 76、 Now, you'll be coming back here to brush up your English, so you'll want to make as
much conversation as possible. Whatever you do, don't stay in a place full of overseas students, especially if they come from our country. This is fatal. Don't believe all the stories you hear about how unfriendly the English are. It's just that many of them are a little shy, and they have this idea about minding their own business. In a train, or restaurant, for example, or anywhere else they will talk to you; but you must break the ice first. Then see them talk! Any subject will do--the weather, their dogs,food. Pardon me, not any subject. Don't be nosy (爱打听的) about their private life, their incomes and expenditures, or their ages. These English worship (尊重) their privacy. Avoid religion too. The best place to talk is in pubs, but as you are a girl, go with someone else, and don't go to the pubs in Piccadilly, Leicester Square and so on. Find one near where you are living and go there regularly. Someone's bound to talk to you. Oh! Make sure to let them see you are a foreigner. Pretend to have difficulty in ordering, or something. That should be easy enough. (1)、The writer suggests that they had better not stay in a place where there are a lot of young people. A：T B：F 答案：B (2)、According to the passage, we should believe the English are mostly friendly. A：T B：F 答案：A (3)、We can talk about anything with English except their dogs. A：T B：F
答案：B (4)、According to the passage, if you want to talk with the English, usually you have to talk to them first. A：T B：F 答案：A (5)、The best place to talk to the English is in a restaurant. A：T B：F 答案：B 77、There are many kinds of ants in the world that always live in companies. They are the most hard-working creatures and most of them make their nests under ground. The small black ants that we see running back and forth in the grass are the same ants that bother us by coming to our picnics uninvited. They are not trying to be harmful, but are only doing the house-keeping job they were made for. They are nature's clean-up crew. One of these ants, scouting(搜索) in the grass, finds the trail of an injured beetle. In some mysterious way the news spreads. Soon there are two ants, then a few more. Then a dozen or more are running around the beetle. Enough ants will come to put an end to it. Then the beetle is dead, the ants carry it away to their underground nests. They leave nothing in the grass but empty shell. (1)、The ants that come to our picnics are having fun. A：T B：F 答案：B (2)、According to this passage, the black ants' job is to clean up the grass.

A：T B：F 答案：A 78、The climate of any place is the kind of weather it usually has over a long period of time. The kind of homes we live in, the clothes we wear even, the food we eat depend on the climate of the place where we live. Climate is complicated; it is affected by many things. If you live near one of the poles, you live in a cold climate, for you do not get much direct sunshine as you would get farther from the poles. If you live near the equator(赤道), you live in a warm or very hot climate, for this is the region where the sun shines almost straight down. How much rain or snow falls makes a great difference to the climate. You may live in a hot, dry land, where little rain falls. This will be a desert. Its climate is quite different from that of a rain forest, where rain falls almost every day. The amount of rain or snow in a cold land depends upon the winds, upon the nearby mountains, and upon the currents in nearby seas. Rainfall depends on many different things. (1)、Climate means the weather of a certain place over a long period of time. A：T B：F 答案：A (2)、"… even the foods we eat depend on the climate of the place where we live." means we eat different foods according to the weather. A：T B：F 答案：A (3)、People living near the poles tend to get more sunlight than those near the equator. A：T
B：F 答案：B (4)、Rainfalls depend on many things except the winds. A：T B：F 答案：B (5)、The best title for the passage is Climate. A：T B：F 答案：A 79、Two years ago, my husband bought me a bike. If you live in a town, it is often faster than a car and you don't have to worry about parking. You leave it anywhere. As it has a seat at the back and a basket at the front, I can take my little daughter to school, to the library, to the shops, to anywhere. I use it most in summer when the weather is warm and dry. It can be very unpleasant in winter when it is cold and the rain is heavy. You must, of course, be careful on a bicycle. Accidents are not the only problem, though. One day I went shopping and came back to find my front wheel missing. It was a long walk to the bicycle shop. Now I have three strong locks. My husband uses my bicycle sometimes for short journeys.
