Polly?s son, Jim, had great difficulty in school. He was classified as the educationa lly handicapped and required a great deal of patience on the part of his parents and teachers. But Jim was a happy kid with a great smile that lit up the room. His parents knew his difficulties, but they always tried to help him see his strengths so that he could walk with pride. Shortly after Jim finished high school, he was killed in a motorcycle accident. After his death, his mother submitted this letter to the newspaper. “Today we buried our 20-year-old son. He was killed in a motorcycle accident on Friday night. How I wish I had known that the last time I had talked to him would be the last time. If I had only known that, I would have said to him, ?Jim, I love you and I?m always so proud of you.? I would have taken the time to count the many blessings he had brought to the lives of the people who loved him. I would have taken the time to appreciate his beautiful smile, his laughter, and his genuine love to other people. “When I put all the good things on the scale and try to balance them with all the irritating (恼人的) things such as the radio that was always too loud, the haircut that wasn?t to our liking, the dirty socks under the bed, etc., I find that the irritations really don?t amount to much. “I won?t get another chance to tell my son all that I would have wanted him to hear, but, other parents, do have a chance. Tell your young people what you would want them to hear as if it may be your last conversation. The last time I talked to Jim was the morning of the day when he died . He called me to say, ?Hi, Mom! I just called to say I love you. You have to go to work now. Bye.? That day, he gave me something to treasure forever. ” If there is any purpose at all for Jim?s death, maybe it is to make others appreciate life more and to tell people, especially family members, that they should take the time to let each other know just how much they care. You may never have another chance. Do it today! 61. Who was Jim? A. The child of the Tyners?. B. The writer?s relative. C. The president of a school board. D. An official of a school. 62. What?s the meaning of the underlined phrase “the educationally handicapped”?
A. The learning difficulty. B. The physical problems. C. The psychological problems. D. The communication difficulty. 63. According to the writer, which of the following about Jim is TRUE？ A. He was always sad about his school marks. B. His parents always scolded him about his bad school marks. C. His study needed more attention from his parents and teachers. D. He was killed in a car accident. 64. The purpose of Polly?s letter is to . A. memorize her son[ B. teach parents to appreciate their children C. teach children how to be good boys D. give some advice on how to deal with children?s problems

B Some people make you feel comfortable when they are around. You spend an hour with them and feel as if you have known them half your life. These people have something in common. And once we know what it is, we can try to do it ourselves. How is it done? Here are several skills that good talkers have. If you follow the skills, they?ll help you put people at their ease, and make friends with them quickly. First of all, good talkers ask questions. Almost anyone, no matter how shy he is, will answer a question. One well-known businesswoman says, “At business lunches, I always ask people what they did that morning. It?s a common question, but it will get things going.” From there you can move on to other matters—sometimes to really personal questions. And how he answers will let you know how far you can go. Second, once good talkers have asked questions, they listen to the answers. This point seems clear, but it isn?t. Your questions should have a point and help to tell what sort of person you are talking to. And to find out, you really have to listen carefully and attentively. Real listening at least means some things. First it means not to change the subject of conversation. If someone sticks to one topic, you can take it as a fact that he?s really interested in it. Real listening also means not just listening to words, but to tones of voice. If the voice sounds dull, then, it?s time for you to change the subject. Finally, good talkers know well how to deal with the occasion of parting. If you?re saying good-bye, you may give him a firm handshake and say, “I?ve really enjoyed meeting you.” If you want to see that person again, don?t keep it a secret. Let people know what you feel, and they may walk away feeling as if they?ve known you half their life. 65. Asking questions might be a quite good and suitable way _______. A. for you to make more and more new friends B. to begin your business talks C. to get the conversation going smoothly D. for you to make a deep and lasting impression on others 66. After having asked somebody a question, it?ll be polite of you to _______. A. make clear what kind of person he is B. listen to his reply attentively C. wait quietly and patiently for his answer D. go on asking him more questions 67. Generally speaking, good talkers are persons who _______. A. are good at making any topic interesting B. never talk too much or too little
C. always speak in a gentle way D. know how and when they should change the topic of the talk 68. If you really take delight in meeting someone again, _______. A. you may take him as your lifelong trustworthy friend B. it seems necessary for you to let him know it C. it?s proper for you to give him a second handshake D. it?ll be helpful for you to have further understanding of him C The first reality TV show in the world was called Expedition Robinson and it was shown in Sweden in 1997. Half the population of the country watched the final event and a new kind of TV program was born. Two years later in Holland , the first series of Big B rother was filmed. Again, it was a great success and the final program was watched by 15 million people. Now more than 20 countries around the world have Big Brother or Expedition Robinson on their TV screens. The ordinary people who take part in the programs are known by millions of people in their own countries and reality TV has become big, big business. For the TV producers, reality TV is a dream which comes true because many of the programs cost nothing to make. At some point, the television viewers are asked to telephone the program to vote or to apply to take part in the show. It is the cost of these telephone calls that pays for the shows. One of the most popular shows is Pop Idol. In the show a group of attractive young people are made into pop stars. TV viewers vote for their favorite person on the show. The winner makes a record and millions of copies of the record are sold. His or her pictures are published on the covers of magazines or on the front pages of newspapers, and then, they are quickly forgotten. But not everyone is happy about reality TV. In Portugal, two TV channels got into trouble because they showed too much of the personal lives of the people in the shows. In France, reality TV is called “rubbish TV” and the TV studios of Big Brother were attacked three times in one week. In Greece, Big Brother was described as “against human rights and civilization”. 69. Those who take part in the reality TV shows are usually _____. A. successful people B. pop TV stars C. attractive people D. famous film stars 70. Who would pay for the cost of the reality TV shows according to the passage? A. TV producers who make reality TV shows B. TV actors who take part in reality TV shows. C. TV viewers who telephone reality TV shows D. TV companies which broadcast reality TV shows 71. It can be concluded from the pass age that ______. A. everyone is happy about reality TV. B. reality TV will do well in many countries. C. all the people in Europe are in favor of reality TV D. reality TV will not be broadcast in any countries.

CROSS E We each have a unique genetic (基因的，遗传的) make-up. Every cell of your body has the same set of about 100,000 separate genes made of DNA. These are the instructions for producing a person. Genes decide everyt hing from the colour of your skin to the way your brain works. You have one of several billion combinations of DNA which come from the random mixing of your parents? genes. Except for identical twins (同卵双胞胎), no one has the same combination as another person. You are unique! You are unique in another way too: in the way you are raised and all the experiences you have from before birth to adult life. These experiences influence you, your behaviour and attitudes, and the choices you make. But are genes or life experiences more important in shaping your appearance and personality?
Scientists are studying twins to find out. One set of twins occurs every 70 births---some are identical and others are non-identical twins. Identical twins are special because they share exactly the same genes and often the same environment. Non-identical twins are more like ordinary brothers and sisters. Some identical twins have been adopted and brought up in different homes. With identical genes but a different home environment, scientists can study twins to see how much a particular feature depends on the genes we inherit. For example, we know that eye problems, like short-sightedness, are mostly genetic. But resistance（抵抗力）to pain is largely dependent on experiences. Genes also influence our eating habits. Identical twins brought up apart often like to eat at the same time of day and feel full after eating the same amount. Non-identical twins in similar circumstances 环境）have more varied eating habits. Identical twins （ are also more likely to follow the same patterns for marriage and divorce than non-identical twins. Scientists are trying to identify the different genes that influence our behaviour. Some people are thrill-seekers and get into risk-taking and adventurous activities. They take up extreme sports like bungee jumping and possibly take drugs. Scientists have discovered a gene which affects this. We could ask, “Are our lives determined by our genes or our upbringing?” Scientists are learning more all the time, but it is certainly true that both are important in making us who we are. 76. What is the main idea of the first paragraph? A. We cannot easily change our physical appearance. B. How we turn out depends on our parents? genes. C. Everyone has a physical double somewhere in the world. D. Both our genes and our experiences make us who we are. 77. Why are scientists studying twins? A. To find out how many twins are born every year. B. To discover what shapes us as individuals. C. To compare differences between twins. D. To study brother-and-sister relationships. 78. According to the passage, __________. A. one in 70 twins are genetically identical B. non-identical twins are usually not of the same sex C. twins separated at birth behave exactly the same D. identical twins are genetically the same 79. Which of the following is most affected by experience according to the passage? A. Eating habits. B. Eye-sight. C. Pain resistance. D. Marriage patterns. 80. What does the underlined “this” in Paragraph 4 refer to? A. Our love of sport. B. Our attitude to risk-taking. C. Our skill at bungee jumping. D. Our ability to take drugs.

1. Uncle Sam became symbol of the United States in 1961 by the U.S. Congress. Uncle Sam is a tall, thin old man, with white hair and beard. He often wears a tall hat, a bow tie, and the stars and strips of the American flag. Why does Uncle Sam stand for the United States? During the War of 1812 the U.S. government hired meat packers to provide meat to the army. One of these meat packers was a man named Samuel Wilson. Samuel was a friendly and a fair man. Everyone liked him and called him Uncle Sam. Sam Wilson stamped the boxes of meat for the army with a large U.S. for United States. Some government inspectors came to look over Sam?s company. They asked a worker what the U.S. on the boxes stood for. As a joke, the worker answered that these letters stood for the name of his boss, Uncle Sam. The joke spread. Before long, people called all things that came from the government “Uncle Sam”, “Uncle Sam” became a nickname for the U.S. government. Soon there were drawings and cartoons of Uncle Sam in newspapers. In these ea rly pictures, Uncle Sam was a young man without beard. The beard was added when Abraham Lincoln was President. President Lincoln had beard.
