Part 3 Reading and Writing VI. Reading comprehension A. Choose the best answer http://www.intemethoaxes.net/info.htm ABOUT INTERNET HOAXES MORE INFO CONTACT US
The Internet is full of false information. It is important for us all to avoid being fooled by such information. Here are three examples of Internet hoaxes. On his website, a man by the name of Tony has asked for gifts of money to save the life of a pretty little rabbit named Toby that he rescued from under his house. A cat must have attacked the rabbit, the man claimed, so he took it in. He gave Toby loving care and nursed him back to health. There is a very cruel point, however. If the greedy man doesn't receive enough money, he will eat poor little Toby. (Don't worry, though. Remember, it's just a hoax!) While the streets of New Orleans, the USA, were still flooded after a terrible hurricane(飓风), a frightening e-mail was sent around the Internet. It included a photograph of a large crocodile over five meters long. According to the message, it had been swimming around the flooded city eating people. It was later discovered that the photographs of the crocodile were of one that was caught in the Congo(刚果) years before. The following e-Mail hoax takes in many people. It claims that a large British company will pay you to send their e-mail to as many people as possible. For every person that you send the e-mail to, it promises you will receive $5.00; for every person that you send it to that sends it to someone else, you'll get $3.00; and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $1.00. To make it even more believable, the sender says that at first he thought it was a hoax, but the company soon sent him $800.00. 69. The underlined word "hoaxes" means ______ A) games B) websites C) lies D) stories 70. Toby is the name of a ______ A) man B) rabbit C) website D) cat 71. The crocodile in the photograph actually lived in______ A) New Orleans B) the USA C) Britain D) the Congo 72. Some people believe that they can ______ if they send e-mails. A) become famous B) find friends C) make money D) keep promises 73. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? ______ A) The city of New Orleans was flooded because of the terrible hurricane. B) lf the man doesn't receive enough money, he will eat poor little Toby. C) The crocodile swam around the flooded city and ate several people. D) Someone received $800.00 from the company because of the e-mail. 74. The main idea of the passage is to______ A) teach how to create a professional website with attractive stories B) show that anyone can create good Internet hoaxes with some facts C) explain that, even though they seem false, Internet hoaxes might be true D) tell people to be careful of Internet hoaxes by giving some examples B. Choose the words or expressions and complete the passage Although the first airplane did not fly until 1903, flying soon became the fastest method of transport. Today it is 75 people's favourite way of traveling long distances because it has a lot of advantages. The first airplanes were not big or powerful enough to carry more than a pilot, but during the First World War (1914-1918) larger aircraft with up to four engines were 76 to carry bombs(炸弹). After the war some of these were changed to carry a few passenger services. In 1919 the first regular passenger services were started between several cities in Europe.
Air transport was even then too 77 for most cargoes(货物), but mail began to be carried by air at an early stage. This was partly because letters are small and light, and partly because businessmen, especially, were prepared to pay more for their mail to be delivered by the fastest method. 78 , in the United States, where letters could take over a week to cross the country by train, airmail services were the first regular transport flights. The early passenger aircraft could carry only about 12 passengers, and only enough 79 for short journeys. For long distances, such as from Europe to the United states, filled with very light gas and able to float through the air, began to be used in the 1930s. By the end of the Second World War in 1945, much larger airplanes had been made. At the same time, military(军事的) airfields had been built all over the world, and long-distance routes had been set up. After the war, the introduction of the jet engine, which 80 much greater power, allowed even bigger and faster aircraft to be built. Today's wide-bodied airplanes can carry as many as 800 passengers. Modern air transport passenger services are quite convenient. Air transport has allowed more people to travel abroad than ever before. 75. A) quietly B) easily C) directly D) recently 76. A) recognized B) considered C) developed D) described 77. A) expensive B) ordinary C) traditional D) private 78. A) After all B) For example C) In addition D) On average .79. A) time B) money C) food D) fuel 80. A) produces B) attracts C) reuses D) spreads C.

Their n 81 were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. These four men n 82 took music lessons. They taught themselves to play music. In 1957, John c 83 a group called the Quarrymen. At that time, he was only 16 years old. Then he met Paul. They began to write songs and sing together. Soon, George joined them.

The song was "Love Me Do." In 1963, their song "Please Please Me" was a bigger hit. In all, they had twenty-nine hit songs. By 1963. the Beatles were very p 85 in England, and Beatlemania started. They had many fans. At concerts, their fans screamed very very loudly. The Beatles could not hear themselves sing. The next year, the Beatles went to the United States. The Americans loved them, too. People everywhere c 86 their clothes and their hair. This rock-and roll group was welcomed by people all over the world. The Beatles broke up in 1970. They wanted to play new music. All of the Beatles did interesting, new things. John wrote music with his wife. Paul started a new group with his wife. George and Ringo made their own r 87 and gave concerts. Sadly, John was shot dead in New York in 1980. He was forty years old. George became sick and died in 2001. We still hear Beatles songs on the radio today. Their music and songs will live in our hearts for ever. D. Answer the questions Once there Was a little girl named Mary Lennox and her two little friends, Dickon and Colin. Both of Mary's parents died when she was a little baby. She was sent to her uncle, Mr. Archilbald Craven, who had a son named Colin. Mary was once a selfish(自私的) girl. She cared for nobody else except herself and she was always alone. She started to know the word "friend" after she met Dickon, the gardener's son. The little boy was very kind to Mary. They went to the Secret Garden every day, planting and playing. Mary never expected that making the garden beautiful would bring such a wonderful feeling to her. She was so happy to be with Dickon that she almost forgot all the sad things around her. She came out of her small lonely world. After she met Colin, Mary finally found the very person to take care of. Colin, the sick boy who
couldn't even walk, had been in bed for about ten years. Before he met Mary, he was taken care of by the servants, but no one really cared how he was. He couldn't find any reason to live. So he cried and cried, thinking about death. But Mary came. Colin was completely attracted to Mary and to all those fresh thoughts and stories which came out of her mouth. Of course, the most exciting of all was the Secret Garden. The feeling of having someone share your secret is wonderful, especially for the children. Colin used to be too weak to change his life, but now he had Mary, Dickon and the Secret Garden. All these gave him courage. Finally, with the help of his two little friends, he managed to stand up for the first time. 88. Did Mary care for anybody else except herself at first? 89. Why was Mary sent to her uncle's ? 90.
