Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the guest room. Instead the angels were given a space in the cold basement. As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied, “Things aren’t always what they seem.” The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable (好客的)farmer and his wife. After sharing what little food they had, the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night’s rest. When the sun came up the next morning, the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their only income, lay dead in the field. The younger angel was very angry and asked the older angel, “How could this happen? Why did you not watch out for the cow? The first man had everything, yet you watched over his house,” she accused. “The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you did not help.”
“Things aren’t always what they seem,” the older angel replied. “When we stayed in the basement, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so greedy and unwilling to share his good fortune, I asked God if I could seal the wall so he couldn’t find it. Then last night as we slept in the farmer’s bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I ask God if the angel could take the cow instead. Things aren’t always what they seem.” 56. Why did the older angel repair the hole for the rich family? A. Because she didn’t like the greedy owner. B. Because she waned to save the gold for the poor. C. Because the basement was too cold to stay in. D. Because she believed that one should always be ready to offer help. 57. The youngest angel was very angry because _________. A. the old angel killed the farmer’s cow B. the old angel treated the two families differently C. the wealthy man gave them a bad place to live D. the angel of death took the cow away 58. Why did the older angel let the farmer’s cow die? A. Because God wanted the older angel to take the cow. B. Because she wanted to teach the youngest angel a lesson. C. Because she wanted to save the farmer’s wife. D. Because she was sympathetic to the rich. 59. The story tries to tell the reader that _______. A. angels are always ready to help the poor B. sometimes things are not what they seem C. angels are always ready to help the rich D. the young should always learn from the old
B You want to know where the safest place for young children is in the car? For a child of any age,the back seat is the safest place and the safest part of the back seat
is the middle．In the back seat, the child is farthest away from the force or effect of head-on collision（撞击）, which can cause the most injuries. All fifty states of the USA have laws requiring the use of safety seats for young children．If youhave children under 8 years of age weighing no more than 80 pounds, it is necessary to fit your carwith a special child safety seat. The child safety seat comes in three types or sizes: the first type is designed for babies frombirth to one year of age, until the baby weighs about 20 pounds; the second size is for childrenbetween one and four years of age, who weigh between 20 and 40 pounds; the third kind is used byolder children big enough to use the car's belt system．Moreover, all these safety seats must be fittedand held in place on the car's back seat．If your child does need your attention while you are driving,don't look back．Just pull over （停靠路边）. In addition, always be sure your child is properly fastened throughout the entire trip．Childrenwho can unfasten their own car seats are subject to fatal injuries in an accident．Start early in yourchild's life teaching them that car safety is serious business and make sure you give a good exampleand always wear your own seat belt. 60．This passage mainly discusses _____. A．how a child can be kept safe while riding in a car B．why the back seat is the safest place in a car C．how a child safety seat can protect a child D．what causes young passengers the most injuries 61．This passage is probably written for _____.

63．What safety tip is given in this passage? A．Always keep your children beside you. B．Fasten your own safety belt to set an example. C．Make your child remain seated during the trip. D．Study laws requiring the use of safety seats.
C Botany, the study of plants, plays a strange role in the history of human knowledge. For many thousands of years it was one field about which humans had little knowledge. It is impossible to know today just what our Stone Age ancestors knew about plants, but from what we can observe of pre - industrial societies that still exists, a detailed learning of plants and their properties(特性) must be extremely ancient. This is reasonable. Plants are the basis of the food pyramid for all living things, even for other plants. They have always been enormously important to the good of people, not only for food, but also for clothing, weapons, tools, medicines, housing, and a great many other purposes. Tribes living today in the woods of the Amazon recognize hundreds of plants and know many properties of each. To them botanyhas no name and is probably not even recognized as a special branch of “knowledge” at all.
Unfortunately, the more industrialized we become the farther away we move from direct relation with plants, and the less clear our knowledge of botany grows. Yet everyone comes unconsciously on a surprising amount of botanical knowledge, and few people will fail to recognize a rose, an apple, or an orchid. When our New Stone Age ancestors, living in the Middle East about 10,000 years ago, discovered that certain grasses could be harvested and their seeds planted for richer production the next season, the first great step in a new association of plants and humans was taken. Grains were discovered and from them flowed the marvel of agriculture: planted crops. From then on, humans would increasingly take their living from the controlled production of a few plants, rather than getting a little here and a little there from many varieties that grew wild and the accumulated knowledge of tens of thousands of years of experience and close relations with plants in the wild would begin to fade away.
64．What does “Botany” in paragraph 1 refer to ? A．plants B．agriculture C．human knowledge D．the study of plants
65．Which of the following assumptions（假设）about early humans is expressed in the passage? A. They probably had wide knowledge of plants. B. They clearly divided knowledge into separate fields
C. They did not enjoy the study of botany. D. They placed great importance on ownership of property. 66．According to the passage, why has general knowledge of botany decreased? A．People no longer value plants as a useful resource. B．Botany is not recognized as a special branch of science. C．Research is unable to keep up with the increasing number of plants. D．Direct relation with a variety of plants has decreased. 67．According to the passage, what was the first great step toward the practice of agriculture? A．The invention of agriculture tools and machines. B．The development of a system of names for plants. C．The discovery of grasses that could be harvested and replanted. D．The changing food of early humans.
All over the country these days, e-mail messages are ending with this strange little mark :-) or :-(.
It was 20 years ago that Scott Fahlman taught the Net how to smile. The Carnegie Mellon computer scientist has devoted his life to man-made intelligence, the practice of teaching computers how to think like humans, but the scientist is perhaps best known for a flash of inspiration that helped to define Internet culture. By the early 1980s the Computer Science Group at Carnegie Mellon was making heavy use of online notice boards. A good many of the messages were humorous. The problem was that if someone made a humorous remark, a few readers would fail to get the joke. This problem caused some people to suggest that maybe it would be a good idea to clearly mark messages that were not to be taken seriously. After all, when using text-based online communication, we lack the body language or the tone of voice that communicates this information when we talk in person or on the phone. So on Sept. 19, 1982, Fahlman typed :-) in an online message. “I had no idea I was starting something that would soon pollute all the world’s communications channels,” he wrote later. The “smiley face” has since become common in online communication. This creation caught on quickly around Carnegie Mellon, and soon spread to other universities and research labs by means of the computer networks of the day. Since then, the smiling marks have taken the e-mail world by storm. Yahoo, Microsoft and America Online all put the faces into their instant-messaging systems, while telecom companies, jewelry makers and online merchants have sent in trademark applications for products and ads that include Fahlman’s smiley face. But Fahlman has never seen a dollar from his creation. “If it cost people a cent to use it, nobody would have used it. This is my little gift to the world, for better or worse,” he said. 68. Which of the following is not true? A. Fahlman is a computer scientist B. When using text-based online communication, we can’t use our body language C. Fahlman has devoted all his life to inventing the smiley faces. D. Fahlman’s smiley face became popular soon after its creation 69. The purpose of Fahlman in typing the first smiley face was ________. A. to show others that he didn’t take his message seriously B. to fill all the world’s communications channels with smiley faces C. to make money out of telecom companies and online merchants D. to show his happy feelings and to help to define Internet culture 70. What does the passage mainly talk about?
A. The Internet culture. online communications system. C. The humorous message. smiley face. 71. What can we infer from the text? A. Fahlman invented the smiley faces to become wealthy and famous. B. Fahlman doesn’t mind that people use his smiley faces for free. C. Fahlman is disappointed that nobody would like to pay a cent for the smiley faces. D. The smiley faces were created to pollute the world’s communications channels. E 1. What will I need to take a Test? You need a photo ID, your instructor’s name, a pencil or pen, a calculator, etc. 2.

The issue of separating science and arts education is getting heated up as debate spreads through the country, which attracts tens of thousands of votes. About 50% of the people interviewed think it unwise to get arts and science separated in high school. In their opinion, a real expert needs a wide range of knowledge. With the development of modern society, multi-skilled people are in great demand. However, over 40% of them insist that they should be separated so that students can concentrate on some subjects and become experts. Besides, they will not be overburdened as before. As far as I’m concerned, it will be better if we don’t separate science and arts education. Because a strong ability in both science and arts is helpful for the longterm development of individuals and the society as a whole. All over the world. only in China are science and arts separated, which has had a bad effect on students’ development. It's high time we changed this situation.
