22.When Mrs. Joseph Groeger died recently in Vienna, Austria, people asked the obvious question, “Why did she live to be 107?” Answers were provided by a survey conducted among 148 Viennese men and women who had reached the age of 100. Somewhat surprising was the fact that the majority had lived most of their lives in cities. In spite of the city’s image as an unhealthy place, city living often provides benefits that country living can lack. One factor seems to be important to the longevity (长寿) of those interviewed.This factor is exercise. In the cities it is often faster to walk short distances than to wait for bus. Even taking public transportation often requires some walking. Smaller apartment houses have no elevators (电梯), and so people must climb stairs. City people can usually walk to local supermarkets. Since parking spaces are hard to find, there is often no alternative to walking.On the other hand, those who live in the country and suburbs do not have to walk every day. In fact, the opposite is often true. To go to school, work, or almost anywhere else, they must ride in cars.1、The Vienna survey may help to explain .A、the complaints of people in apartment housesB、the cause of Mrs. Groeger’s deathC、the longevity of people like Mrs.GroegerD、the image of cities in general2、The purpose of the second paragraph is to list some .A、benefits of walkingB、problems of city livingC、comments made by city peopleD、occasions for walking in city life3、To reach the third floor of a building, it would probably be most healthful .A、to walk up the stairsB、to take the elevatorC、to ride in a carD、to find an alternative to walking4、People who live in the country probably do more driving than walking because .A、they don’t live near businessB、they don’t need the exerciseC、they never have parking problemsD、they can’t afford to take the bus5、A conclusion that can be drawn from this passage is that .A、air pollution is not seriousB、walking is a healthful exerciseC、country people should move to the cityD、anyone can live to be 107

41.What actually happens when we read? Some people think that we read one word at a time, understanding it and then go on to the next. Other people think that our eyes smoothly over each line from left to right, then back to the beginning of the line, and so on. In fact, the physical action of reading usually doesn’t work in of those ways. Suppose you do things experiment with a friend. Get hold of a book with a large page and with lines that go right across the page. Get your friend to the book up and to read it with the top of the book just below his eyes level. This means that you can watch the movement of his eyes as he reads the page. If you do this, you will see that your friend’s eyes do not make a continuous forward sweep. they progress (前移) by little “jumps”, moving, then stopping, as they progress along the line. to be this starting and stopping movement because the eye can see only when it is moving. Every time the eye pauses it sees a phrase or even a sentence, even jumps to the next part of the line, and so on. There is another interesting fact about eye movement. You will notice that, , the reader goes back and looks again at something he before; in other words, he returns to an earlier part of the text probably because he he is not understanding it properly. Then he comes back to where he stopped and continues reading.1、

42.There are many reasons for the tidal action which is a very complicated phenomenon involving many factors all of which must be considered to predict tide in any one place at any one time. The alternate rise and fall of the surface of the seas and the ocean is mainly caused by the attractive force of the moon alone. When the attractions are great, the tide is high, and conversely when the attraction is minimal, the tide is low. Between the high tide and the low tide is a period of a little over six hours, being called during its rise a flood tide, and during its fall an ebb tide. The sun also exerts its effect on the tide, being a little less than half as much as the moon, although its mass is so much greater. When the moon and the sun are horizontal, the highest high tide occurs and when they are vertical the lowest low tide takes place. The wind also plays an important part in the modification of the normal rise and fall of the tide. Thus these factors affect each other either detracting or adding to the attraction forces to add or subtract from the height of the tide. But the tides still move inexorable (坚决不变) on, rising twice a day, getting a little later each day and posing a problem of correctly predicting their heights and lows.1、According to this article, it is clear that the force of the moon .A、is not as important as that of the windB、causes the alternate rise and fall of the surfaceC、is less than half as much as the sunD、does not influence the rise and fall of the surface2、It can be concluded from this article that the sun’s effect on the tide is .A、half that of the moonB、more than that of the moonC、more than twice that of the moonD、more than half that of the moon3、Which of the following factors will not affect the time of the tide?A、The position of the sun and the moon.B、The mass of the moon.C、The wind.D、All of the above mentioned4、If the first high tide takes place at 1:00 a.m., the next high tide will probably take place at .A、7:20a.m.B、8:00a.m.C、1:45 p.m.D、high noon5、The principal idea of this article is .A、The attraction of the sum and the moonB、The sum, the moon and the windC、The changing tideD、The factors affecting the tide

60.Television, it is often said, keeps one about current events, allows one to follow the developments in science and politics, and offers an endless series of programs which are both instructive and stimulating. The most distant countries and the strangest customs are right into one’s sitting room. It could be argued that the radio performs this service just as well: but on television everything is much more living, much more .Yet here is a danger. The television screen itself has a terrible, almost physical fascination for us. We get so used to at its movements, so dependent on its flickering pictures, that it begins to our lives. A friend of mine told me the other day that his television set had broken and that he and his family had suddenly found that they had far more time to do things , and that they had begun to talk to each other again. It makes one think, doesn’t it! There are many other arguments for and against television. The poor of its programs is often criticized. But is undoubtedly a great comfort to many lonely elderly people. And does it corrupt or instruct our children? I think we must realize that television in itself is neither good bad. It is the uses to which it is put that determines its value to society.1、

61.Dr. Harvey Gates, the noted scientist, might never have discovered the Kamron lizard (蜥蜴) in Blovia, if it had not been for a childhood accident.

The effect of such a change in climate the human population of the world would be startling (惊人的).Recent research suggests that the general warming trend of the past hundred years or so be coming to an end. During the past ten years, meteorologists (气象学家) tell us, the average temperature of the earth has about one degree Fahrenheit (华氏). This does not seem like , but it could have effects on wind and rain patterns which influence the overall weather . if these patterns change a lot, it could mean that certain regions of the world may continue to have long droughts other will possibly suffer from widespread flooding.

79.Who is Ronald McDonald? The question might be hard for some grown-ups to answer, but not hard for American school children. Even many children in other countries know the name. in the USA, almost 96 percent of children could identify Ronald McDonald —— only Santa Claus has a higher rating.McDonald’s is a most successful American corporation today. And we owe it all to Ray A. Kroc. In the 1940s Kroc became the exclusive salesman for a new invention, a milkshake (奶昔) machine. Once a small hamburger restaurant owned by two brothers named McDonald attracted his attention. They bought eight of his machines. Kroc thought that a chain of similar restaurants would use many such machines, so he began his hamburger restaurants under a royalty (特许权) arrangement with the two brothers. As McDonald’s restaurants began appearing across the country, Kroc soon realized that his future would be in the restaurant and not the machine business. He bought out the McDonald brothers at last. “I needed the McDonald name…” he said, “What are you going to do with a name like Kroc?”Since then McDonald’s has established outlets all over the world, from New York to Paris to Tokyo. Operating under a strict set of rules the units provide high-quality service and good food for the whole family. By connecting his operations to consumer needs and, at the same time, making McDonald’s a household word, Ray A. Kroc succeeded as a businessman. Millions who left his units would say, “Nobody can do it like McDonald’s can.”1、According to the passage, McDonald’s is the name of .A、Mr. McDonaldB、Ray A.KrocC、the two brothersD、a chain of fast food restaurants2、In the 1940s Kroc alone .A、invented a milkshake machineB、sold a kind of milkshake machineC、attracted a small hamburger restaurantD、thought of purchasing a famous restaurant3、Kroc realized that his future would be in the restaurant .A、after he bought out McDonaldB、when he got tired of the machine businessC、as McDonald’s began appearing all over the countryD、before he began his own hamburger restaurants under royalty4、Kroc bought out the McDonald brothers for the reason that .A、the McDonald name was familiar to the customersB、he didn’t like his own nameC、he was already a very rich manD、he did not know what to do with his own name5、Ray A.
