B Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, and has long been a favorite destination of tourists from all over the world, as well as an important cultural and political center. With its museums, shops, wonderful historic castle, and many pubs and restaurants, there are many things for visitors to enjoy all year round. And of course, as it is in Scotland, there are a wide range of whiskies to try!
However, there is more to Edinburgh than historic monuments and tourism. Each year, the Edinburgh Festival takes place in the city. In late summer, for three weeks, the festival presents classical music, theater, opera and dance at six major theaters and concert halls—and several smaller ones—throughout the city. Whatever your cultural tastes, you are sure to find something to enjoy. Local talent is always represented at the Edinburgh Festival giving Scottish composers and playwrights the opportunity to showcase their work and gain recognition from a wider audience. In addition, orchestras (管弦乐队) and theater companies come from all over the world to perform at the prestigious (有名望的) festival. Last year saw the arrival of orchestras from the United States and Germany. The festival has now become an important part of Scotland’s economy as well as its culture. Last year’s festival generated over ￡130 million expenditure in Edinburgh alone, and across Scotland nearly 2,900 jobs exist as a direct result of the festival. The festival is so popular that it has become, in some ways, a victim of its own success. The huge interest in performi ng there led to the setting up of a rival (竞争的) festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Fortunat ely, demand for live entertainment during the summer is so great that both festivals continue to thrive (兴旺). The Fringe tends to feature mostly comedy and experimental works. Yet it can lead to great things ---- many famous and successful comedians and artists, such as Rowan Atkinson, better known as TV’s Mr. Bean, started their careers in small venues at the Fringe. 24. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage? A. The festival is economically important for Scotland. B. Many people in Scotland rely on the festival for their jobs. C. Local performers challenge bands from all over the world. D. One is sure to find something to enjoy during the festival. 25. What does the underlined part “a victim of its own succes s” most probably mean? A. A prestigious band for its successful performance. B. An unsuccessful performance without good preparation. C. An orchestra from another country performing in Edinburgh. D. A festival that causes trouble for itself because of great success. 26. What we can learn from the passage is that ________.
A. the Edinburgh Festival attracts audience across the world B. both festivals win good recognition from a wide audience C. the Fringe was set up in the hope of acceptin g the challenge D. many comedians and artists took off overnight at the Fringe 27. Which of the following can be the best title for this passage? A. Edinburgh ------ A City of Culture B. Edinburgh ------ A Tourist Attraction C. Edinburgh ------ A Political Center D. Edinburgh ------ A Place to Try Whiskies C What historical site impresses you most? I’ve always been fascinated by the pyramids in Egypt. A few years ago I braved a long queue and climbed through a narrow passage to reach the main chamber deep inside one of them. Like millions of other tourists, I marveled (赞叹) at stone-walled rooms full of the magic of this ancient civilization. But popularity might be the destruction of such archaeological treasures. Take Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings for example. It lay untouched for more than 3,000 years until the British archaeologist Howard Carter uncovered it in 1922. Now more than 1,000 people a day walk through it. But as more and more people visit, the temperature and humidity inside the tomb change. As a result, the beautifully decorated plaster is coming away from the rock. In order to preserve its heritage, a replica (复制品) of the monument is being opened about 1 kilometer away from the actual burial site. Specialists have recorded every detail of Tutankhamun’s tomb and used the data to recreate it. Adam Lowe from the organization behind the project says the copy is identical to the original. He believes visitors will want to become part of the force that protects it rather than a force that is leading to its destruction. So they won’t mind seeing a replica. But for historian Tom Holland, a copy is still a copy. He believes that although preservation is important, there is something unique about places like Tutankhamun’s tomb. He says it was built by people who believed in the world of the spirits, the dead and the supernatural. You don’t have to believe in a god or gods to feel a place is consecrated (使圣化) and has a particular quality that can’t be reproduced. What about you? Would you visit a replica of a monument rather than the original to help
preserve it? 28. What may account for the destruction of some archaeological treasures like Tutankhamun’s tomb? A. Climate change. B. Copies. C. Popularity. D. Thieves.
29. What measures have been taken to preserve the heritage of Tutankhamun’s tomb? A. Decorating the monument again. C. Limiting the number of visitors. B. Building a replica of the monument. D. Moving the tomb away from the actual site.
30. Th e underlined word “identical” is closest in meaning to ________. A. superior B. sensitive C. exposed D. similar
31. Historian Tom Holland may hold the opinion that ________. A. some unique ancient places can’t simply be replaced by replicas B. visitors are advised to see replicas because preservation is first C. ancient civilizations are consecrated and can’t be redecorated D. visitors to ancient civilizations must believe in a god or gods D It was about midday. I’d left work early in the morning to cash a check. I walked along to the bank and found there were only about ten or eleven customers in there, a pretty unusual number for those central banks. I waited until it was my turn, walked up to the desk and started talking to the bank clerk. He had a really strange expression on his face—just sort of a blank stare. I thought he was looking at me until I realized he was staring over my shoulde r. I began to turn round to see what he was looking at and at the same moment, the outside bank guard, the one with the machine gun, came flying through the door and lay face down on the floor. Following him through the door were three absolutely frightening men wearing those horrible stocking masks. They were carrying guns; at least the one in front was carrying a pistol. Whether or not they said anything I can’t remember to this day, or whether people just automatically put their hands up I don’t know. I put my hands up but I just didn’t know what to do. For a few moments there was just total silence, suddenly broken by the telephone ringing. I remember wondering who was on the other end of the line. Nobody answered the telephone, so it just kept on ringing and ringing, in this otherwise deathly quiet. Then two of the masked men went to the counter, jumped over it and got the cashiers and
bank clerks to start filling their bags with cash. While the two were getting the money, the one at the door covering us with the gun obviously got a bit of an anxiety attack and started swearing at them, telling them to hurry up and get a move on. They jumped back over the counter. One of them lost his balance when he landed on the floor and fell over. The other two swore at him again. Then they left through the door, warning us, “Don’t move. Stay like that with your hands up for ten minutes.” Then they just disappeared and there was total silence. 32. What could make the writer sense that something was about to happen? A. The small number of customers. C. The bank clerk’s unusual behavior. B. The total silence in the bank. D. The constant ringing of the phone.
33. What was the outside bank guard’s reaction to the armed robbers? A. He was frightened to death by the robbers. B. He organized the bank clerks to fight bac k. C. He shot at the robbers with the machine gun. D. He flew through the door to catch the robbers. 34. The man covering us with the gun at the door swore at the other two because ________. A. he was afraid of getting less money C. one of his fellows slipped on the floor 35. From the passage we can know that ________. A. there were usually less customers in the midday hour B. the writer didn’t follow like sheep to put his hands up C. the bank clerks were too busy to answer the telephone D. three armed men robbed the central bank in broad daylight B. he was too anxious to leave the bank D. the phone kept ringing at the moment
