It was the last day of the final examination in a large eastern university. On the steps of one building, a group of students were talking about the exam that was going to begin in a few 36 .On their faces was confidence. This was their 37 exam—then on to graduation and jobs.

Some talked of jobs they already had, others talked of jobs they 38 get. With the certainty of four years of college, they felt 39 and able to take control of the world.

The coming exam, they knew, would be a(n)40 task, as the professor had said they could bring 41 books or notes they wanted, requesting only that they did not 42 each other during the test.

43 they entered the classroom. The professor passed out the papers. And smiles 44 on the stud ents’ faces as they found there were only five questions.

Three hours had passed 45 the professor began to collect papers. The students no longer looked confident. On their faces was a frightened expression. Papers in hand, no one spoke as the professor faced the class.

He looked at the 46 faces before him, and then asked: ―How many completed all five questions?‖ 47 a hand was raised.

―How many answered four?‖ Still no hand.

―Three? Two?‖ The students moved restlessly in their seats.

―One, then? Cert ainly somebody finished 48 .‖ But the class remained silent.

The professor put down the papers. ―That is exactly what I 49 ,‖ he said. ―I just want you to know that, although you have completed four years of study, there are 50 many things about the 51 you don’t know. These questions you could not answer are relatively common in everyday 52 .‖ Then, smiling, he added, ―You will all53 this course, but remember—even though you are now college graduates, your education had just 54 .‖

A

At first Kate thought the Romanian girl could not speak and understand English. Nadia would not reply to anything Kate said. Kate was in charge of showing Nadia around on her first day at Buckminster Grade School.

Kate wondered aloud. ―I mean, you can’t learn if you can’t understand the teacher.‖Nadia’s voice was a whisper. ―I understand English. I will learn.‖ Nadia’s English was perfect.

Kate was perplexed. She couldn’t unders tand why Nadia did not like to speak. Then she realized that moving to a new country probably wasn’t the easiest thing to do. There were hundreds of unfamiliar and unusual things to learn------all at the same time.

―There’re a lot of new things to learn,huh?‖ said Kate.

Nadia nodded rapidly. In a quiet voice she replied. ―Many things people say, I do not understand. I have been speaking English and Romanian all my life, but I do not know what some children are saying. For example, yesterday a boy asked if I could help him find the USB port on a thin black box he was carrying. Isn’t a port a place for ships? It made no sense to me.‖

―Don’t worry,‖ said Kate, ―You’ll figure everything out in time. You see, that thin black box was a computer. A USB port is a place where you can connect other machines to a computer.‖

Nadia and Kate were quiet after that. They took notes while the teacher gave a maths lesson. To Kate’s surprise, Nadia offered to answer questions at the blackboard. She handled every question the teacher gave her. Some of the questions were really difficult. And no one understood what was going on except Nadia and the teacher. When the teacher said that Nadia answered everything correctly, the whole class

clapped their hands.

Nadia was smi ling when she sat back down next to Kate. ―Some things,‖ she said in a normal voice, ―are the same all over the world.‖

56. The underlined word ―perplexed‖ probably means _______.

A. puzzled

B. angry

C. shocked

D. serious

57. We can infer from the passage that________.

A. Nadia did not like Kate.

B. Nadia had lived by the sea before.

C. Nadia had never seen a computer before.

D. Nadia spoke in a soft voice out of politeness.

58. Which of the following statements is true?

A. Nadia was better at maths than other students.

B. Nadia found some of the questions difficult.

C. Nadia was encouraged to answer questions in class.

D. Nadia understood the maths teacher better than other students.

59. What is the message of the story?

A. Talking about something familiar gives you confidence in communication.

B. Answering questions in class makes you better understood by classmates.

C. Language plays an important role in communication between cultures.

D. Mathematics helps to improve communication between cultures.

The huge explosion at Krakatau was the result of two different factors. One was that the volcano had not broken out for some time and so at the very center of the volcano there was an huge plug of lava, this acted like a cork(塞子) in a bottle, stopping the pressure below from being released(释放). The second factor was that ocean water entered the very centre of the volcano as the explosions became more violent. This caused superheated steam to build up enormous pressure and this was finally released in the largest explosion of all on August 27, 1883. The sudden release of the pressure sent huge amounts of ash, rock and dust into the sky. Some of the ash rose 80km into the air and traveled around the Earth causing brightly coloured sunsets for several years.

Krakatau almost disappeared; for many years after this explosion, it remained very quiet. However, there was still activity going on under the sea and on 25 January, 1925, a small volcanic cone appeared above the surface of the water. This new volcano was named Anak Kmkatau, or Child of Krakatau. Over the following years, the size of the island grew larger, by 1959, the island was 300 metres above the surface of the sea. The volcanic activity has continued and the latest eruptions were in 1995.

There is no doubt Krakatar will continue to grow and there is also strong evidence that at some point in the future there will be another violent explosion. Krakatau is in a part of the world where the surface of the Earth is unstable and is always moving and cracking. If, in the future, another ―cork‖ becomes fixed in the

centre of the volcano, the pressure will build up. A series of a smaller explosions will allow sea-water into the centre of the volcano and once again the result will a terribly destructive explosion.

59. The pressure under the volcano can not be released because _______

A.the plug looks like a cork in a bottle

B.the volcano hasn’t broken out for some time

C.the center of the volcano is blocked(堵塞) by lava

D.the temperature of the steam is not high enough.

60. We can infer from the article that Krakatau volcano________

A.has broken out three times

B.never dies but continues to be active

C.will kill many people again in the future

D.is always moving and growing above sea.

61. All of the following results are caused by the explosion at Krakatau EXCEPT

that_____

A.ash, rock and dust was thrown high into the air

B.others small volcanoes were soon produced.

C.The island of Kratau was destroyed

D.People saw beautiful sunsets for some years

62. The article is mainly about__

A.the cause of the Krakatau volcano

B.the danger of the Krakatau volcano

C.the history of the Krakatau volcano

D. the future of the Krakatau volcano

Letter to Editor of TV Weekly

Dear Sir/Madam,

I r ead Alison Burnham’s review of When we were 12, and I do not agree with her.

I thought the programme was wonderful---I found the old news pictures really interesting--- they helped to bring to life the stories the people were telling.

The programme reminds me of many things from my own childhood. For example, one day when I was about five, I was gong to school on the bus by myself (this was the late 1960s). My mother had given me exactly the right money for a return ticket. I held out my hand with the money in it – one big coin on top of one little coin. The bus conductor took the big top coin only and she gave me a ticket, but it was a pink one for a single journey, I needed a white for a return journey, but I was too frightened to say anything. When sch ool finished for the day, I couldn’t catch the bus home --- I had to walk. As a grown-up, whenever I’ve been in a situation where I need to say something or take some action, this early memory of my bus ride comes back to me, and I’m able to take control o f the situation.

I would like to say to the director, Bret Chrysler, carry on making this kind of programme. Too much TV these days in quiz shows and so-called ―reality programmes.‖ I appreciate the human story that can make me laugh and cry.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Daniels

64. What is Chris Daniels’ purpose of writing this letter?

A. To persuade Bret Chrysler to turn away from quiz shows

B. To entertain() other readers with old news pictures

C. To express his appreciation of the programme.

D. To have his story told on the programme.

65. Chris Daniels tells the story about the bus ticket to ____.

A. describe how painful his early experience was

B. draw a direct response(反应) from Alison Burnham

C. show how the programme made him think

D. teach the readers of TV Weekly a lesson

66. According to the passage, Chris Daniels had to walk home because ____.

A. he hadn’t got a return ticket

B. he had lost his bus ticket

C. he didn’t like big crowds

D. he missed the bus home

67. What does Chris Daniels now think about his experience on the bus?

A. He should have told the conductor then.

B. He should have been well treated.

C. He regrets going to school alone.

D. He wished it hadn’t happened.

When I was small and my grand mother died, I couldn’t understand why I had no tears. But that night when my dad tried to cheer me up, my laugh turned into crying.

So it came as no surprise to learn that researchers believe crying and laughing come from the same part of the brain. Just as laughing has many health advantages, scientists are discovering that so, too, does crying.

Whatever it takes for us to reduce pressure is important to our emotional (情感的) health, and crying seems to work well. One study found that 85 percent of women and 73 percent of men report feeling better after crying.

Besides, tears attract help from other people. Researchers agree that when we cry, people around us become kinder and friendly and they are more ready to provide support and comfort. Tears also enable us to understand our emotions better; sometimes we don't even know we' re very sad until we cry. We learn about our emotions through crying, and then we can deal with them.

Just as crying can be healthy, not crying — holding back tears of anger, pain or suffering — can be bad for physical health. Studies have shown that too much control

of emotions can lead to high blood pressure, heart problems and some other illnesses. If you have a health problem, doctors will certainly not ask you to cry. But when you feel like crying, don't fight it. It's a natural — and healthy — emotional response.

68. Why didn't the author cry when her grandmother died?

A. Because her father did not want her to feel too sad.

B. Because she did not love her grandmother.

C. Because she was too shy to cry at that time.

D. Th e author doesn’t give the explanation.

69. It can be inferred from the text that ______.

A. there are two ways to keep healthy

B. crying does more good to health than laughing

C. crying and laughing play the same roles

D. emotional health has a close relationship to physical health

70. According to the author, which of the following statements is true?

A. Crying is the best way to get help from others.

B. Fighting back tears may cause some health problems.

C. We will never know our deep feelings unless we cry.

D. We must cry if we want to reduce pressure.

71. What might be the most suitable title for the text?

A. Power of Tears

B. How to Keep Healthy

C. Why We Cry

D. A New Scientific Discovery

Liu Xiang, a 21-year-old Chinese athlete, got the gold medal of the fascinating men’s 110m hurdles before a crowd of 70,000 at the Olympic Stadium in the 28th Olympics in Athens late Friday local time. He clocked an excellent 12.91 seconds to equal the world record set by Britain’s Collin Jackson in 1993.

It is the first gold Chinese men’s athlete has e ver won from the track and field in the Olympics history. China has won over 100 gold medals from the summer Olympic Games since 1984 but its male athletes only got one medal from Olympics’ most popular sport, the track and field.

The Shanghai native, with his father a truck driver and mother an out-of-work housewife, loved sports when he was very little. Liu was selected to the Junior Sports School of Putuo District of Shanghai to practice jumping as a fourth grader in the primary school. But after a bone test showing that he will not be able to become a tall man, Liu was asked to give up sports one year later, although he had won the national champion at that level.

In 1998 when he attracted coach Sun Haiping’s attention as a 15-year-old jumper, Sun was a well-known hurdle coach and he believed a star was born at the first sight of Liu. He visited Liu’s parents several times and finally persuaded them to let Liu transfer to the 110m hurdles.

After only three years, Liu launched his career in style in the IAAF Grand Prix in

Lausanne in 2001 by breaking the world youth and Asian record with a time of 13.12.

But the first warning he sent to the world was his bronze-winning feat(战绩)at the world indoor championships in Birmingham, England, last year.

In 2004, Liu won the silver in the world indoor championships in Budapest in March. Two months later, he proved the winner in a race against American great Allen Johnson in the IAAF Grand Prix in Osaka, Japan, where he clocked a new Asian record and world’s season bes t time of 13.06 seconds.

He went on to win two Johnson-absent races in Lille, France, on June 26 and Zagreb, Croatia, three days later. He put up an exciting show at the Golden Gala meet in Rome on July 3, when he and Johnson clocked an identical time of 13.11. Race officials had to examine a photo finish to declare Johnson the winner. Liu did a better job of clearing the hurdles than Johnson, but Johnson’s stronger start ended up making the difference. The race boosted(提高)Liu’s optimism(乐观) for the Olympics, although Johnson bettered his season best time by 0.01 second in Lausanne, Switzerland, on July 6.

The world has put the Olympics a Johnson-Liu duel but surprisingly Johnson crashed out of the Games after falling at the ninth hurdle at round 2. Johnson’s early exit paved the way for Liu’s win. He finally took the gold medal and put a Chinese man’s name on the record book.

A Big Forest Fire

A terrible fire broke out at the end of January in a forest in the southwest of America. The fire, which resulted from the smoking of a careless young man, lasted three weeks and caused economic losses of about 20 million dollars. What’s worse, nine persons lost their lives in the fire and about 80 were seriously injured as a result of the fire. Thousands of firefighters and local villagers fought together and they finally managed to put out the great fire. The fire astonished the whole nation.

In my personal opinion, fire is very important in our life but sometimes it can be very dangerous, so we’d better be careful with it. ( 112 words )
