However, on the afternoon of December 23 the list was put up. I was among the lucky soldiers who would have three-day passes.
It was Christmas Eve when I arrived home, and a light snow had fallen. Mother opened the front door. I could see beyond her, into the corner of the living room where the tree had always stood. There were lights, all colors, shining against the green of a pine(松树). “Where did it come from?” I asked. “I told the gate boy to cut it after I had your call and he just brought it in this afternoon,” my mother said. “I wouldn’t have had one just for myself.” The pine reached to the proper height, almost to the ceiling and the Tree Top Crystal Star was in its place. A few green branches reached about a little disorderly at the side, I thought, and there was a bit of bare trunk( 树干) showing in the middle. But the tree filled the room with warm light and the whole house with the pleasant smell of Christmas. “It’s not like the one you used to find,” my mother went on. “Yours were always in good shape. I suppose the gate boy didn’t know where to look. But I couldn’t be critical.” “Don’t worry,” I told her. “It’s perfect.” It wasn’t, of course, but at the moment I realized something for the first time: All Christmas trees are perfect. 62. The author’s family used to put their Christmas tree _____. A in the corner near the front door B in the same place of the living room C in a different corner of the living room D in the corner beyond the living room 63. According to the author, the Christmas tree _____. A was too high B was in good shape C itself was not perfect D smelt wonderful 64. What made the author realize that all Christmas trees were perfect? A The beauty of the pine tree. B The shining color lights on the tree. C The pleasant smell of the tree. D The warmth of being home again at Christmas. 65. Which of the following is NOT TRUE? A All the soldiers didn’t get three-day passes. B The author failed to inform his mother that he would be back. C It was a white Christmas. D The author used to make a Christmas tree. D Direction: Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading from A-F for each paragraph. There is one extra heading which you do not need. A. B. C. D. E. F. 66. Every year earthquakes are responsible for a large number of deaths and a vast amount of destruction in various parts of the would. Most of these damaging earthquakes occur either in a narrow belt which surrounds the Pacific Ocean or in a line which extends from Burma to the Alps in Europe. Some of the destruction is directly caused by the quake itself. An example of this the collapse of buildings as a result of the quake itself. Other damage results from landslides or major fires which are initiated by the quake. 67. Earthquakes Forecast Historical Records of Earthquake Intensities of Earthquakes Cause of Earthquakes Indications of Earthquakes Damaging Earthquakes
There are about a million quakes a year. Fortunately, however, not all of them are destructive. The intensity of an earthquake is measured on the Richter Scale, which goes from 0 upward. The highest scale recorded to date is 8.9. Major damage generally occurs from quakes ranging upward from 6.0. 68. The actual cause of the quake itself is the breaking of rocks at or below the earth’s surface. This is produced by pressure which scientists believe may be due to a number of reasons, two of which are the expansion and contraction of the earth’s crust and continental drift. 69. In order to limit the damage and to prevent some of the suffering resulting from earthquakes, scientists are working on ways to enable accurate prediction. Special instruments are used to help people record, for example, shaking of the earth. Scientists are trying to find methods that will enable them to indicate the exact time, location and size of an earthquake. 70. Certain phenomena have been observed which are believed to be the signs of imminent earthquakes. These include strange behaviors of some animals, the changes in the content of mineral water, etc. The magnetic properties of rocks may also display special pattern before major earthquakes happen. 第 II 卷（共 30 分） I. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
