         What do you do to relax? Do you watch TV? Do you read a book? Or do you listen to music? How
    many of us actually play a musical instrument? How many of us go to concerts? How important is music
    in our lives? What kind of music do we like?
         The survey above shows the musical habits of a few of our readers. Interestingly, fourteen people
    out of the twenty questioned actually play a musical instrument, while only six people don't. Out of these,
    ten people practice their musical instrument between 0-3 hours a week and the other four between three
    and six hours a week.
         The best instrument to play is the guitar; eight people say it is their favourite instrument to play.
    Another four people like playing the piano and two like playing the violin. Two people, however,
    don't like playing the violin or the piano as they think they are too difficult.
         Pop concerts are always popular but, in this survey only eight people say they like going to concerts,
    six to pop concerts and two to jazz concerts.
         A higher number, eighteen, say they like listening to music as they find it relaxing. Only two people
    don't like listening to music at all. These results seem to suggest that we are more actively musical than
    we think ...
    1. How many of the twenty people don't play a musical instrument?

    2. How many of the fourteen people like playing the guitar?

         As a teacher, I think it is right to tell my students to write about their pure feelings and real experiences. I always taught my students how to learn by experience. And I also found that it helped me a lot to get on well with the students.
         One day after explaining a text,I asked my students to write a passage about their families.I encouraged them to write about their  real  experiences  with  their closest family members. All the students wrote quite well  but  the  best one of them was written by a  little girl. She was Hao Fang. I was deeply moved by her
    story. In  her  passage, she said her father  had died years  before  and  her mother  had to  work hard to
    support the family. Many times she  had seen her mother work deep into night but never seen tears on her
    face.  She also wrote that she needed to stay  strong  and  she would do the best to give her  mothe r an
    easier life in the future. Like her mother, Hao  Fang also  worked hard  at  her  lessons  and she was really
    good at any of them.  I didn't know anything about her unlucky family till then. She always appeared happy and 'never showed that she needed  anyone's help.
         In order to make her an example to the class, I read  this  passage to the class. When I finished reading
    it, I found my throat choked  and  my students' eyes full of tears. After  class nearly  all  my  other students
    crowded around Hao Fang and gave their money to help this girl. We knew her family needed money very much. Many students decided to offer her more help. To tell  the  truth, I was really proud  of my students.
    But to my surprise, this student of mine didn't express her thanks to  her classmates and left school without even telling me the next day. I was puzzled about this.
         Was  it  right to  tell her sad story to the class? Why did sh e refuse to accept  the  donation? These
    questions crowded my mind.
    1. The teacher mentioned in the article always _      .         
    A. made the students feel sad
    B. asked the students to make up stories
    C.  helped the students learn from the real life
    2. Hao Fang wrote about her family's hard life in order to          .           
    A. tell her real experiences
    B. show how strong she was
    C. ask her classmates for money
    3. The underlined word "choked"  means          in Chinese.     
    A.哽咽            
    B.激动                
    C. 疼痛
    4. By reading the article, we know that Hao Fang _______ .      
    A. appreciated the donation
    B. was frustrated at her hard life
    C. wanted to improve her family's life by working hard
    5. We can learn from the article that       .             
    A. the ways of helping people should be well chosen
    B. it's wrong to ask students to tell their real experiences
    C. donating money to the poor is the only better way to help them

    根据短文内容完成下列表格,并将完整单词写在答题卡对应题号的横线上。(每空一词)
      Photography is about taking photographs. In 1826, a Frenchman named
    Niepce needed pictures for his business. But he was not a good artist. So he
    invented a very simple camera. He put it in a window of his house and took a
    picture of his garden. That was the first photograph.
      The next important date in the history of photograph was 1837. That year,
    Daguerre, another Frenchman, took a picture of his studio. He used a new kind of
    camera and a different process. In his pictures, you could see everything very
    clearly, even the smallest details. This kind of photograph was called a
    daguerreotype.Soon, other people began to use Daguerre’s process. Travelers
    brought back daguerreotypes from all around the world. People photographed
    famous buildings, cities and mountains.
      In about 1840, the process was improved. The photographers could take
    pictures of people and moving things. The process was not simple. The
    photographers had to carry lots of films and processing equipment(设备). But this
    did not stop the photographers, especially in the United States.
      Mathew Brady was a well-known American photographer. He took many
    pictures of famous people. The pictures were unusual because they were very
    life-like and full of personality. Brady was also the first person to take pictures of
    war. His 1862 Civil War pictures showed dead soldiers and destroyed cities.
    They made the war seem more real and more terrible.
      In the 1880s, new inventions began to change photograph. Photographers
    could buy films readymade in rolls(卷). So they did not have to make the film
    themselves. Also, they did not have to process(冲洗) the film at once. They could
    bring it back to their studios and develop it later. They did not have to carry lots
    of equipment. And finally, the invention of the small hand-held camera made
    photography less expensive.
      Photography is also a form of art. Some photographs were not just copies of
    the real world. They showed ideas and feelings, like other art forms.
    Title: The    1   of Photography
    Photography doesn’t only mean taking photographs; it is also a form of art.
    Photographs showed not only the real world, but also the ideas and feelings.
    In 1826A Frenchman named Niepce invented a very simple camera and the first
    photograph was    2    by him.
    In 1837A Frenchman named Niepce invented a very simple camera and the first

    In 1840The photographers could take pictures of people and moving things with
    lots of films and processing equipment.
    In 1862An American photographer Brady took many pictures of real and    4    
    things in the war. He was the first person to take war pictures.
    In the
    1880s
    There were films readymade in rolls(卷). Photographers did not have to
    carry lots of equipment any more. The invention of the small hand-held

    阅读理解
          Imagine this: a television screen has the size and thickness of a piece of paper. You carry it around in
    your pocket and take it out when you want to watch a show. Imagine a guitar so tiny that you can't see it
    with the human eye, but you can hear sound when its strings are pulled.
          Nanotechnology (纲米技术)  is the science that deals with doing things in a very small way, and it is
    being studied and developed all over the world. Many scientists say nanotechnology will produce the next
    industrial revolution (工业革命) .
          Perhaps nanotechnology will have the biggest influence on medical science. Imagine manobots (纲米机器人) in medicine. Thousands or even millions of tiny machines can be sent into the human body with
    specific tasks. For example, they can be designed to find and destroy cancer cells or viruses (病毒). Other machines may stay in the human body for ever to help organs (器官) that are not working properly.
          When could all of these happen? Scientists predict that most of these are possible in the next 30 years. Thousands of scientists around the world are working on these micro - machines.  Nanotechnology is just around the corner.
    1. The two examples in Paragraph l are used to __________            
    A. introduce the smallest television            
    B. introduce a new kind of guitar            
    C. introduce the topic of the passage
    2. Nanotechnology ___________            
    A. will cause an industrial revolution            
    B. deals with things in old ways            
    C. has studied the whole world
    3. The underlined word "they" in the third paragraph refers to (指代)________            
    A. scientists          
    B. human bodies            
    C. tiny machines
    4. The tiny machines _____________          
    A. are too small to be repaired            
    B. can be put in a human body to kill viruses            
    C. may not work well in a human body
    5. The underlined phrase "around the corner" in the last sentence means"_________"          
    A. far away  
    B. at present      
    C. in the near future

           Experts(专家) say that students usually need eight to ten hours' sleep at night,but most Chinese 
    students do not get enough sleep. Some Chinese parents are usually glad to see their children studying
     late. They will think their children work very hard. But not all parents are hap- py about this. Once a 
    mother told us that every morning her 10-year-old boy put up one finger with his eyes still closed , 
    begging(乞求) for one more minute to sleep. Like thousands of students " early birds"  in China, he 
    has to get up before six every morning.       
           A report shows that without a good nights sleep, students seem to be weaker than they should be.
     Many students have fallen asleep during class at one time or an- other. Too much homework is not the
     only reason(原因 ) why students stay up late. Some students watch TV or play the computer games 
    late into the night.      
           Experts have ever said that students should develop good study habits(习惯). So some clever 
    students never study late , but they are able to work well in class.   
    1. The l0-year-old boy begged for one more minute to sleep because                .

    A. become too weak to sleep

    C. sleep less

    D. stay outside

    A. If you want to study better,you must work hard at night.    
    B. Sleeping less means working hard.  
    C. Some clever students are able to work well in class because they have good study habits.

    阅读理解。
      The size and shape of your ears show your character more than any other
    part of the face. Other parts of the face change shapes as we get older, but ears
    do not change their shapes. They only change in size.
    Reading people's character from their ears is a very old science. In the past
    people thought that a person's ears with color were dangerous. They also thought
    that the shape of the ears showed if a person was musical or not. Today, too
    many people believe that the size and shape of the ears help you know if a person
    is musical.
      Ears are all different, and each different thing has a meaning. Next time you
    look at a person, see if his or her ears are large, medium-size (中等尺寸), or
    small. Look at the lobes(耳垂). Do they stick to the face? Ears that are always
    red mean that a person may get angry easily. Ears that are always cold and nearly
    white color mean that a person has a nervous character.
    1. When we grow up, _____.
    A. our ears will not change in size.  
    B. our ears will be the same size.
    C. our ears will get colder          
    D. our ears will not change in shape.
    2. If someone’s ears are red, it means _____.
    A. he/she is a kind person.  
    B. he/she is very happy.
    C. he/she may get angry easily.  
    D. he/she drinks a lot.
    3. If you look at someone's ears, the right way is to see _____.
    A. his face, ears and nose      
    B. the size, color and shape
    C. his mouth, eyes and nose  
    D. the hair, eyes and color

    阅读理解
         If you watch the sky about an hour after the sun goes down, you may see some "movingstars". But
    they're not real stars. They are man-made satellites. And the biggest of all is the International Space
    Station ( ISS国际空间站).
         From now until July is the best season to watch the ISS flying over the earth, and people can see it
    just with their eyes. The ISS is the biggest man-made satellite because scientists want to live on it. They
    think that the best way to learn more about space is to live there.
         When the space station is finished, it will be like a city in space. People will stay and study there with
    many of the things they have at home. Laboratories, living rooms and power stations are being built. The
    ISS is the most ambitious(雄心勃勃) and expensive space program ever.
         Billions of dollars are being spent on it every year.
         Scientists hope that the ISS will be a stepping-stone (垫脚石) for future space exploration.
         "The ISS will help us better understand the human body, explore space and study the earth. It can
    help us make life on the earth better," said Kathryn Clark, an ISS scientist.
         China is not an ISS country, but it has helped with some of the experiments. China sent some rice up
    to the ISS to find out what space would do to it.
         The ISS is not finished yet. More than 100 parts need to be put on. Scientists hope it will be finished
    as soon as possible. After it's finished, more than 90% of the world's population will be able to see the
    Space Station. So keep looking up, and maybe you'll see it get bigger.
    1. The ISS is          .
    A. a world power station

    阅读理解。
      It seems to be strange to you there is a blind spot on the eyes. Here is an
    interesting experiment that can make something disappear, when one eye is open.
    Make a card about the size of a postcard and write two English letters L and R
    on it, L on the left and R on the right. First, hold the card about 80 cm away and
    you see both the letters. Then close your right eye and look at the letter R only
    with your left eye. And now, as you move the card slowly towards you, you'll
    find the letter L disappearing. But if you move the card nearer to your face, the
    letter will be seen again. Now do the same experiment with your left eye closed,
    you'll find the letter R disappearing.
      Why does the letter disappear? It is because there is a blind spot on the eye.
    When the image (影像) of the letter falls on the blind spot, it won’t be seen. That
    is why either of the letters disappears.
    1.The writer of the passage thinks that _____ there is a blind spot on the eye.
    A. few people know

    3. You fail to see the letter L in the experiment because _____.
    A. your eyes are poor
    B. its image falls on the blind spot
    C. you move it close to your eye
    D. your left eye is not open
    4. In which order (顺序) should you do the experiment?

    阅读下列短文,根据短文中的信息完成文后表格。(每空一词)

         Although many Chinese students say that their knowledge of English grammar is good, most would
    admit that their spoken English is poor. Whenever I speak to a Chinese student, they always say, "My
    spoken English is poor." However, their spoken English does not have to remain "poor". I would like to
    suggest that there may be some reasons for their problems with spoken English.
         First, they fail to find suitable words to express themselves because of a limited vocabulary.
    Obviously, the better answer is to enlarge their vocabulary. However, you can speak with a limited
    vocabulary, if your attitude is positive(积极的). Others will follow you as long as(只要) you use the
    words that you know.
         Second, they are afraid of making mistakes. Sometimes they make mistakes when they are speaking
    because they are shy and nervous. Yet students should remember that their goal should be FLUENCY
    (流利性) NOT ACCURACY(准确性). Your aim in writing is to be accurate following the rules for
    grammar and using them to get your message across(使别人了解你的信息). But to talk to someone
    in English, as quickly and well as you can, even though sometimes you may use a wrong word or tense,
    but it doesn't matter because the person you are speaking to will understand you and forgive you for any
    mistakes he hears.
         The third reason is that not enough attention is paid to listening. You have one mouth but two ears!
    All the hearing is necessary for you to start speaking.
         Fourth, most Chinese students are somewhat passive language learners. Instead of actively looking
    for opportunities(机会) to improve their spoken English, they passively wait for speaking opportunities
    to come to them and wonder why their English always remains poor. If you are active language learners,
    then, you will see English chances wherever you go.
         If you do not use your English beyond the classroom, you will forget that English you know.
    Remember: USE IT OR LOSE IT! You can learn how to speak English better by speaking Eng1ish
    more.

           Can you swim? Do you like swimming? Yes? Well, how can you leam to swim? I think the best 
    way is to go into the water and learn. I'm afraid you'll never learn to swim just by reading books about 
    swimming or watching others swimming. It's the same with the English study. We must practice, practice
     and practice.         
           Listening and speaking are very important for beginners. The children in English-speaking count ries 
    first listen to others. Then they try to imitate (模仿)  and speak. We can listen to English programs on the 
    radio, and maybe you can just understand a few words. It doesn't matter. Just be relaxed, and try to 
    catch every word.         
           Somebody may be a good listener. But he dare not speak. He's afraid of making mistakes. You 
    know we even make mistakes when we speak Chinese. Don't be afraid. We must be brave. lf you really 
    want to leam English well, you must try to speak with everyone so long as he knows English. Whether you know him or not is not important. When there is nobody to talk with, you can talk to yourself in English. 
    It's interesting and also a good way to practice your spoken English. Remember, the more you speak, the 
    fewer mistakes you'll make.          
           Reading and writing are more important for senior school students. First, we must choose the books we're interested in. A lot of reading will improve your language sense. This is the most important.          
           Keep writing English diaries. We can also write English articles. You may even post them to English
     magazines. Don't be afraid of failure. Failure is the mother of success.          
           Easier said than done. Well, let's do more practice from now on. I'm sure you'II learn English well in
     this way.

         Different weather makes people feel different. It influences health, intelligence and feelings.
         In August, it is very hot and wet in the southern part of the United States. People there have heart trouble and other
    kinds of health problems during this month. In the northeast and the middle west, it is very hot at some times and very
    cold at other times. People in these states have more heart trouble after the weather changes in February or March.
         The weather can also influence intelligence. For example, in a 1983 report by scientists that IQ of a group of students
    was very high when a very strong wind came, but after the strong wind, their IQ was 10% below. The wind can help
    people have more intelligence. Very hot weather, on the other hand, can make it lower. Students in many schools of the
    United States often get worse on exams in the hot months of the year (July and August).
         Weather also has a strong influence on people's feelings. Winter may be a bad time for thin people.  They usually
    feel cold during these months. They might feel unhappy during cold weather. But fat people may have a hard time in
    hot summer. At about 180C, people become stronger.
         Low air pressure may make people forgetful. People leave more bags on buses and in shops in low pressure days.
    There is "good weather" for work and health. People feel best at a temperature of about 180C.
         Are you feeling sad, tired, forgetful or unhappy today? It may be the weather's problem.

    阅读下列两篇短文,从各小题所给的四个选项中选出能回答所提问题或完成所给句子的最佳答案。
         Some vegetables need a lot of sunshine.A vegetable expert at the University of Marine advised planting these vegetables where they can get eight to ten hours of sunlight a day. Tomatoes, melons, squash and peppers are among those that need the most sunshine.    
         Farmers often feel it needs a lot of sunshine to produce a good crop.  The Rodale Institute in Pennsylvania, however, says that lots of vegetables grow well without much sunshine. The research center published a report about this subject some years ago in its magazine' Organ,ic Garden,in,g. The report says many different kinds of crops from bluebemes to beans can be grown in the shade.      
         The Rodale Institute says a garden should be planned carefully especially if you grow different kinds of vegetables.  For example, rows of vegetables should be planted in an east-west direction.  In that way, as the sun passes overhead, all the plants will receive an equal amount of light.  This is especially important when the plants grow to different heights.    
         Some fruit also grow well without a lot of sunlight. In the United States, bluebemes and several kinds of pears need only a little sunshine each day.  In Asia, the hardy kiwi grows well in the shade.
    1. Which plant needs eight to ten hours of sunshine a day according to the expert at the University of
    Marine?
    A. Blueberries.          
    B. Pears.          
    C. Beans.        
    D. Tomatoes.
    2. If we want the plants to receive the same amount of sun- shine, what should we do?    
    A. Plant them in an east-west direction.    
    B. Plant them in the shade.    
    C. Plant them in the high place.    
    D. All the above.
    3. Which of the followings is NOT true according to the passage?    
    A. Not all fruits can giow well in the sun.    
    B. Melons need less sunshine than a kiwi.    
    C. The magazine Organic Garden,ing is published in America.    
    D. We'd better plant the bluebemes and beans in the shade.
    4. What kind of articles will appear in the magazine Organ,ic Garden,in,g?   
    A. Some secrets about famous people.    
    B. How to get cheaper clothes.    
    C. Scientific reports.    
    D. NBA games.
    5. The passage mainly tells us____.  
    A. plants, vegetables and the sunshine    
    B. crops can grow well without much sunshine

    阅读理解
         People who talk and sing to plants are not crazy, according to Mr. Braymar, an agriculture expert(农业专家). "In
    fact, singing and talking to plants makes them grow better," says Braymar. The reason is quite simple -- when we
    sing or talk to plants, we breathe out carbon dioxide (二氧化碳) which plants need to live and grow. Plants take in
    the carbon dioxide during the sunlight hours and produce oxygen(氧气) which people need to live. Singing and
    talking is effective, however, only during the daytime.
    1. Plants need ________ in the daytime.
    A. carbon
    B. dioxide
    C. carbon dioxide
    D. oxygen
    2. Carbon dioxide helps plants ________.
    A. to take in oxygen
    B. to sleep well
    C. to drink water
    D. to live and grow better
    3. The point of the paragraph is that singing and talking to plants can be ________.
    A. good for the people who do so
    B. helpful to both people and plants
    C. dangerous to people D. polluting the air

    阅读理解。
         What is your favorite color? Do you like yellow, orange and red? If you do, you must be an optimistic
     (乐观的), a leader, an active person who enjoys life, people and excitement. Do you prefer grey and
     blue? Then you are probably quiet, shy, and you would rather follow than lead. You tend to be a
     pessimist (悲观主义者). At least, this is what psychologists (心理学家)tell us, and they should know,
     because they have been seriously studying the meaning of color preference (喜好) as well as the effect
      that colors have on human beings. They tell us, among those facts, that we don't choose our favorite
     color  as we grow up - we are born with our preference. If you happen to love brown, you did so, as
    soon as you opened your eyes, or at least as soon as you could see clearly.
         Colors do influence our moods. There is no doubt about it. A yellow room makes most people more
     cheerful and more relaxed than a dark green one. And a red dress brings warmth and cheer to the
     saddest winter day. On the other hand, black is depressing. A black bridge over the Thames River near
     London, used to be the scene of more suicides (自杀) than any other bridge in the area - until it was
     repainted green.
         Light and bright colors make people not only happier but more active. It is a fact that factory workers 
     work better, harder, and have fewer accidents when their machines are painted orange rather than black
     or grey.
    1. If you enjoy life, one is sure to prefer _____.
        A. red to yellow
        B. blue to orange
        C. red to grey  
        D. blue to yellow
    2. Those who tend to be pessimists preferred the bridge over the Thames River near London to others
     because of _____.
        A. its shape
        B. its structure
        C. its color  
        D. its building materials
    3. Which of the following is TRUE?
        A. People's preference of one color to another is instinct.
        B. People's preference of one color to another is learned as we grow up.
        C. More people love brown because they saw brown when they were born.
        D. Colors have little influence on our moods.
    4. If the bridge over the Thames River near London is painted in pink, perhaps the number of suicides
        will _____.
        A. rise a lot
        B. fall quite a lot
        C. be the same as before
        D. become larger

         People find that children as young as 18 months can help with chores When parents say to those
    children, "Just look at the paper," they will pick it up.

         Man has been to the moon.  It was been the first step to the future travels  in space. T he moon is much nearer to the earth than all the planets. Venus, the nearest planet to the earth is millions of kilometers away!
    Traveling  to the planets will be  man's  next step.   It will be more difficult than traveling  to  the moon  and

         In 1997, an American spaceship reached Mars, the second nearest planet from the earth. A wonderful robot slowly  walked  on the planet and worked hard.   It sent a lot of information back to the earth.  The
    most exciting piece was that there used to be a lot of water on Mars.  The American  scientists asked,  "Is
    there any life on Mars?" Unluckily, no life was found there, but American scientists do not lose heart.
         Russian spaceships have found that it is so hot on Venus that there must be no life there.

    阅读理解
           According to a new Ministry of Education (教育部) survey, student safety has become a big
    problem. Nearly 50 percent of students say they are worried about robbery  on the way to and from
    school. Now in many big cities in China, some school has taught an unusual lesson: self - protection
    (自我保护). Students like this lesson as there are no exams or boring classes. And they can learn how
    to save lives and know how to stop danger before it really happens.
           Chen Haoyu, a teacher at Beijing No. 25 Middle School and a self - protection expert, gives young
    students advice on how to deal with danger.
           If you are robbed
           Keep calm. If you cannot cry for help or run away, give the robber your money. Try to remember
    what the robber looks like and tell the police.
           If you are in a traffic accident
           If you are hurt by a car, take down the car number; if it is a bicycle, try to contact your parents
    before you let the rider go. This is because you don't know how seriously you are hurt.
           If it is raining hard and there is lightning
           Don't stay in high places and keep away from trees.
           When there is a fire
           Get away as fast as you can .Put wet things on your body and try and find an exit. Do not take the
    lift!
           If someone is drowning(溺水)
           If you can't swim, don't get into the water. Cry out for help.
           Remember that danger is never as far away as you think. Take care of yourself at all times!
    1. Why do students like the self - protection lesson?
    A. Because there is advice on exams.
    B. Because they can learn how to protect themselves.
    C. Because they like self - protection experts.
    D. Because they are free to do anything during the lesson.

         Have you ever seen a horse with toes? Millions of years ago, horses had many toes. They had four
    toes on each front foot. They had three toes on each back foot. These small horses lived in the forests.
    Their toes helped them run over the soft, wet ground.
         It was once very hot in the forest. But the weather changed later. It became cold. Many trees  could
    not live in such cold weather, so they died and fell.  Open fields took the place of forests. The sun made
    the ground dry and hard. Horses began to get bigger with climate changing. On the dry, hard land, horses
    needed only their middle toes for running. Their middle toes became hard. After a long time, horses had
    only one hard toe on each foot. We call it hoof.

    阅读理解。
       Have you ever dreamed about a trip to space? Seeds (种子)of some vegetables and crops are a lot
    luckier than you, as they have travelled to space and back.
        China is among the three countries in the world that carry out agricultural (农业的)research in space.
    The others are Russia and the U.S. Since 1987, China has sent about 1000 kinds of seeds into space.
    These include green peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and rice. Even on China's first manned spacecraft Shenzhou V there were some seeds from Taiwan.
        "Conditions(条件) in outer space such as radiation(辐射)and low gravity can cause big changes in the
    seeds," said Chinese researcher Jin Xing.
        But not all seeds are better after going to space. After returning to the earth, the best seeds are chosen. These seeds produce much more and also grow faster than normal seeds. As the safety of genetically
    modified(转基因)food is still being talked about, some people are not sure about the safety of these
    "space vegetables" because some of their genes(基因)are changed during the trip to space.
       But Jin holds the more hopeful view. He said, "Unlike genetically modified crops, no new genes are
    introduced to the space vegetables, so they are surely safe."
        Space vegetables are better than normal vegetables. For example, space tomatoes stay fresh for twenty
    days, which is one week longer than normal tomatoes. Another popular space vegetable is the peppers.
    Space peppers have 20 per cent more vitamin C than normal peppers.
        Researchers are considering holding a tomato festival. By the time people will be able to enjoy about 30 different kinds of space tomatoes on their dining tables.
    So far, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has set up three space vegetable base fields, one of which is in
    Shenzhen while the others are in Beijing and Jiangsu Province.
    1. What will happen when seeds of some vegetables are sent to space and carried back?
    A. Some of their genes are changed.      
    B. They are all better than before going to space
    C. No changes are caused in the seeds.    
    D. They all produce much more and grow faster.
    2. Why does Jin Xing have no doubt about the safety of the space vegetables?
    A. Because the seeds sent to space stay the same.
    B. Because the seeds sent to space are the best.
    C. Because no new genes are brought into them.
    D. Because space vegetables are luckier.
    3. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
    A. Genetically modified food is completely safe. 
    B. The space vegetables don't belong to genetically modified food in some ways. 
    C. About 1000 kinds of seeds were sent into space on Shenzhou V.  
    D. Seeds back from space must be planted in special rooms controlled by computers.
    4. What is the underlined word "cucumber" in the second paragraph?
    A. A product from Russia.            
    B. A kind of gene. . 
    C. A product from Taiwan.          
    D. A kind of agricultural product.

         The advantage of design museums is that they are places where people feel f __3__ with the exhibits.
     Being different from the art museum visitors, design museum visitors s __4__ feel frightened or puzzled.
     This is partly because design museums clearly show how and why mass-products (批量产品) work and

    阅读理解。
         Rivers are one of our most important natural resources (自然资源). Many of the world's great cities
    are located on rivers, and almost every country has at least one river flowing through it that plays an
    important part in the lives of its people.
         Since the beginning of history, people have used rivers for transportation. The longest one in the
    United States is the Mississipi. The lifeline of Egypt is Nile. To the people of India, the Ganges is great,
    but it is also important for transportation; ships can travel along it for a thousand miles. Other great rivers
    are the Congo in Africa and the Mekong in Southeast Asia. The greatest of all for navigation (航海),
    however, is the Amazon in Brazil (巴西). It is so wide and so deep that large ships can go about two
    thousand miles upon it.
         Besides transportation, rivers give food to eat, water to drink, water for crops, and chances for fun
    and recreation for the people who live along their banks. In order to increase the supply of water for
    crops, engineers sometimes build a dam (大坝) across a river and let a lake form behind the dam. Then
    people can use the water not only to irrigate (灌溉) their fields but also to make electricity for their homes
    and industries. However, large cities and industries that are located upon rivers often make problems. As
    the cities grow in size and industries increase in number, the water in the rivers becomes polluted
    with chemicals and other materials. {people are learning the importance, however, of doing more to keep
    their rivers clean if they want to enjoy the benefits (利益) of this natural resource.
    1. Which of the following is WRONG according to the passage?
    A. The Mile is in India.

    sea.  People dig very big pools and let sea water in. When the sun dries up
    the water, people can get salt from the ground. The salt is white, clean and
    beautiful.
         There are a lot of salt wells in Sichuan.  A salt well is much like a water
    well. People bring the well water up to the ground and then dry it in big jars
    over fire.  In this way they get salt. We can also get salt from salt mines. A
    salt mine may be found under the ground. Some years ago, people in Jiangxi
    found a big salt mine and soon opened it. People there need salt from other
    places no more.
          In the northwest of our country, there are many salt lakes.  Some of these lakes are very big. The salt in a big lake will be enough for our people for
    centuries.

        School education is very important and useful. The students both learn knowledge and get an
    education. Yet, no one can learn everything from school. The scientists (科学家) , such as Edison,
    Newton, Galileo a Einstein. didn't learn everything from school. They learned a lot of knowledge
    outside or in practice(实践) themselves. A teacher, even he knows a lot, can't teach his students

    teacher with rich experience (经验) in teaching can teach his students the methods ( = ways) of study.
    Through these methods the students are able to learn and get a lot of things by themselves. Usually it is
    very easy for the students to remember some knowledge, but it is very difficult to use it for problems.
      If a teacher really shows the students the ability (能力) of how to use knowledge, it means the teacher

         In the United States, headmasters and teachers disci?pline (惩罚) students in several ways. The teacher often writes to or calls the students' parents. Sometimes students have to stay at school for one hour. If a
    student behaves very badly, the headmaster can stop the student having classes. The student can't come to school for one, two or three days. Mr Lazares, the headmaster of a middle school in Ohio, did not like to do so. When he didn't  let the students come to  school,  they were happy.  "A  three-day holiday!"  They
    thought
         One day,  a boy was in  Mr  Lazares's office.  The boy was not  behaving  well in class.  Mr Lazares

    said. The boy's father came to school and went with his son to every class.  Other students looked at the
    boy and his father. The boy was em ?barrassed (难为情).  After that he behaved better. And, of course,
    other students behaved better, too.
         Now headmasters all over the USA are trying Mr Lazares's idea. They, too, think that students behave better when parents come to school.

    阅读理解。
         It is common to believe that  learning  just takes  place in school, but much of human learning happens
    outside the classroom, even from birth and people continue to learn throughout their lives.
         Even before they enter school, young children learn to walk, to talk, and to use their hands to use toys, food, and other objects. They use all of their senses to learn about the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells in
    their environments. They learn how to communicate with their parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, and other people important to their world. When they enter school, children learn subjects like reading, writing, and maths. They also continue to learn a lot outside the classroom. They learn which behaviors are likely to be rewarded and which are  likely  to  be punished. They learn social skills for  communicating  with other
    children. After they finish school,  people must learn to deal with many changes that affect their lives,  such
    as getting married, raising children, and finding and keeping a job.
         Because learning continues  throughout our lives  and affects almost  everything we do,  the study of
    learning  is  important  in many different fields.  Teachers need to understand  the  best ways to  educate
    children.  Scientists,  social workers  and other human service workers need to  understand how certain
    experiences change people's behaviors.
         Learning is closely related (相关的) to memory, which is the storage of information in the brain (大脑). Scientists who study memory  are interested in how the brain stores knowledge,  where this storage takes
    place, and how the brain later offers knowledge when we need it. However, scientists who study learning
    are more interested in behavior and how behavior changes as a result of a person's experiences. ?

         The Internet is a big place. Nobody has the time to look at every webpage(网页) to find something. Yahoo can help
    us to find what we need.
         Two Stanford University students, David Filo and Jerry Yang started Yahoo in 1994. They started by making a list of
    their favourite webpages. When their list got longer, they made a database(数据库) to keep their information. They let
    everybody use it for free. Soon, thousands of people began to use their service.
         They then made a new kind of software. It could take certain information and arrange it for someone to look at. If you
    search for, say, "blue whales", the engine will give you a list of webpages with those words.
         Yahoo became a public company in 1996. Filo and Yang, still young men, became rich. As their company grew, they
    went on working hard. They improved their software. They also added more services, like shopping, free e-mail, in many
    different countries and languages.

  • 阅读与回答问题。 Whether summer or winter, holiday time can mean travel. A few years ago, some people moved

    阅读与回答问题。
          Whether summer or winter, holiday time can mean travel. A few years ago, some people moved from California to Maryland with their birds. Traveling with birds is a very unusual experience. But everything
    can go well with a little planning. There are some good tips for you.
         ★ The first thing you have to decide is what cage your birds will use. You should make sure that the
    cage is neither too small nor too big, and can be put into the car easily. If you find that you need a travel
    cage, get it a few weeks before the trip, so you can give your birds time to get used to it.
         ★ If your car has the airbag, do not put the cage in the front seat. The force of the airbag even in a
    little accident could easily damage any cage and even injure or kill the bird inside. The cage should be
    held in the car with seatbelts.
         ★ If your trip will take several days, you need to make some stops at pet-friendly hotels. When you
    stop at hotels during the trip, you must put lots of newspapers under the cage to help control the rubbish.
         ★ If your travel or moving plans bring you to areas with hot weather, remember that the car become
    very hot in a short time in the sun. Never leave your birds in the car alone.
        Traveling with birds can be stress-free, and a little planning can make it a pleasant experience.
