    In 1933 an unknown American called Clarence Nash went to see the filmmaker Walt Disney. He had an unusual voice and he wanted to work in Disney's cartoon(动画片) film for children. When Walt Disney heard Nash's voice, he said "Stop! That's our duck!"


    The duck was the now-famous Donald Duck, who first appeared in 1934 in the film The Wise Little Hen. Donald lived in an old houseboat(水上住家) and wore his sailor jacket and hat. Later that year he became a star after an eight-minute Mickey Mouse film. The cinema audience liked him because he was lazy and greedy(贪婪的), and because he lost his temper(发脾气) very quickly . And they loved his voice when he became angry with Mickey's eight nephews(侄子). Soon Donald was more popular than Mickey Mouse himself, probably because he wasn't a goody-goody like Mickey.
    In the 1930S,' 40s and '50s Donald and hid friends Mickey , Goofy and Pluto made hundreds of Disney cartoons. He also made educational films about the place of the USA in the world, and safety in the home. Then in 1966 Donald Duck and his voice disappeared---there were no more new cartoons.
    Clarence Nash died in February, 1985. But today's children can still see the old cartoons on television and hear that famous voice.

    Why do we have in a camera a lens(镜头)instead of a simple hole? 
    The reason can be seen from the figures(图像).
    In Figure 1, the hole is small. Rays of light from a point (P1)outside reach a very small part of the wall opposite, and we see there a small point. But when the hole is bigger, as in Figure 2, rays from the point(P2)can cover a larger part of the wall opposite, and we don't see a clear point, Rays from other points(Q) outside can also fall on the same place inside. Therefore the picture is not clear when the hole is big and it is not bright when the hole is small because very very little light can pass through it.. We can get better result with a lens. If the lens is made in the shape shown in Figure 3, all the rays of light from the point(P3) are thrown on point(P') inside. The picture which we see, therefore, is clear, and it is also bright because more light can pass through a lens than through a small hole.
1. In Figure 1 we see a faint small point on the wall because     .
   A. the point(P1) is very small              B. the hole isn't big enough
   C. light rays don't travel in straight lines     D. light rays can't pass through a small hole
2. Figure 2 shows that the bigger the hole is,     .
   A. the more light can pass through          B. the clearer the picture will be
   C. the better result we will get             D. the faster the light rays travel
3. From figure 3, we can see a lens     .
   A. can form a clear picture                B. can make light go in a straight line
   C. can help light rays to go faster           D. cannot give the picture more light than in Fig. 2
4. The main idea of the second paragraph of the article is that     .
   A. a smaller hole is better than a bigger one
   B. big holes are better than small ones
   C. both a big hole and a small one have their weak points
   D. light rays are sure to pass through a hole no matter it is big or small
5. Which of the following statements is true?
   A. Light can go through all kinds of materials
   B. A camera can't be made without a lens
   C. The lens is only used in a camera
   D. Most of the light we get is from the lens

    Overhead bridges are found in many parts of Beijing, especially in places where traffic is very heavy and crossing the road is dangerous.
    The purpose of these bridges is to enable pedestrians (行人) to cross roads safely. Overhead bridges are used to very much the same way as zebra crossings. They are more efficient (效率高的) although less convenient because people have to climb up a long flight of steps. This is inconvenient especially to older people. When pedestrains use an overhead bridge, they do not hold up traffic. However, when they cross a busy road using a zebra crossing, traffic is held up. This is why the government has built many overhead bridges to help pedestrians and to keep traffic moving at the same time.
    The government of Beijing has spent a large amount of money on building these bridges. For their own safety, pedestrians should be encouraged to use them instead of risking (冒…危险) their lives by dashing across the road. Old people , however , may find it a little difficult climbing up and down the steps, but it is still much safer than walking across the road with all the danger of moving traffic.
    Overhead bridges serve a very useful purpose. Pedestrians, both old and young, should make it a habit to use them. This will prevent unnecessary accidents and loss of life.
1. What is the advantage of overhead bridges mentioned in this passage?
   A. Taller trucks can pass under them.
   B. Pedestrians can climb up and have a view of the city.
   C. They are safer for pedestrians and can keep traffic moving at the same time.
   D. They are easier and more convenient for the pedestrians.
2. Why were overhead bridges built in Beijing?
   A. Because they prevent traffic from being held up.
   B. Because they provide an easy way for the drivers to cross the road.
   C. Because they save money for the government.
   D. Because they save time for the pedestrians.
3. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?
   A. Overhead bridges are found in every part of Beijing.
   B. Overhead bridges are only found in the centre of Beijing.
   C. Overhead bridges are found in many parts of big cities in China.
   D. Overhead bridges are found in places where traffic is heavy.
4. The underlined words a zebra crossing probably mean ________.
   A. a safe place across a road for pedestrians to walk across the road

    Man is a land animal, but he is also closely tied to the sea. Throughout history the sea has served the needs of man. The sea has provided man with food and a convenient (便利的) way to travel to many parts of the world. Today, nearly two—thirds of the world's population live within 80 kilometers of the sea coast.
    In the modern technological world, the sea offers many resources to help mankind survive (=continue to live). Resources on land are beginning to be used up. The sea, however, still can be hoped to supply many of man's needs.
    The list of riches of the sea yet to be developed by man's technology is impressive. Oil and gas explorations (探险) have been carried out for nearly 30 years. Valuable amounts of minerals exist on the ocean floor ready to be mined (开采).
    Fish farming promises to be a good way to produce large quantities of food. The culture of fish and shellfish (贝类动物) is an ancient skill practised in the past mainly by Oriental people.
    Besides oil and gas, the sea may offer new sources of energy. Experts believe that the warm temperature of the ocean can be used in a way similar to the steam in a steamship. Ocean currents (水流) and waves offer possible use as a source of energy.
    Technology is enabling man to explore (勘探) ever more deeply under the sea. The development of strong, new materials has made this possible.
    The technology to harvest the sea continues to improve. Experts believe that by the year 2000 the problems that prevent us from exploiting fully the food, minerals, and energy sources of the sea will be largely solved.
1. The major things that the sea offers man are ______.
   A. fish and oil                           B. minerals and oil
   C. warm temperature and ocean currents       D. the food, energy sources, and minerals
2. The sea serves the needs of man because ______.
   A. in provides man with food              B. it offers oil to man
   C. it supplies man with minerals            D. all of the above
3. We can conclude from this passage that ______.
   A. the sea resources have largely been used up
   B. the sea, in the broad sense, has not yet been developed
   C. the problems that prevent us from using the food, minerals, and energy sources of the sea have already been solved.
   D. by the year 2000 , the technology will be good enough to exploit all the sea resources
4. The underlined words Oriental people in the fourth paragraph probably mean ______.
   A. the people in Asia                  B. African people
   C. European people                   D. American people
5. The best title for this passage is ______.

    Now and again I have had horrible dreams, but not enough of them to make me lose my delight in dreams. To begin with. I like the idea of dreaming, of going to bed and lying still and then, by some queer magic(神奇的魔力), wandering into another kind of existence. As a child, I could never understand why grown-ups took dreaming so calmly when they could make such a fuss(大惊小怪) about any holiday, This still puzzles me. I am puzzled by people who say they never dream and appear to have no interest in the subject. It is much more astonishing than it would be if they said they never went out for a walk. Most people do not seem to accept dreaming as part of their lives. They appear to see it as an irritating(令人困扰的) little habit, like sneezing or yawning(打哈欠).I can never understand this. My dream life does not seem as important as my waking life because there is far less of it, but to me it is important.

    One morning, when we had been riding on our bikes for five hours, we came to a bridge where the railway crossed a pond(池塘). For 30 feet there was nothing but the widely-spaced wooden sleepers(枕木) under our wheels, and nothing to stop us falling into the steaming pond below if we lost our balance. Right under the bridge lay the body of a dead cow. I watched Mat as he came near to the bridge and rode straight over, without ever, slowing down. I stopped.
    "What's up?" he cried out from the other side.
    "I'm not riding over that thing. If I slip, I'll be in there with that cow," "There's nothing to it. I just did it. didn't I?"
    "You're stronger and taller. My feet don't touch the ground. You do it for me!"
    Mat said strength didn't come into it and rode off. I knew he would give me at least an hour before coming to help. The sun burned my face, sweat ran off my forehead into my eyes and stuck my blouse(女衬衫) to my body. Try myself rather than wait for Mat to help. I rode back to get a good run-up and over I went.

One day, Margaret told me grandma was coming to live with them and her daddy and mummy would want my room back. The news didn't surprise me and the next day I went to Judy and asked her about it. I said I couldn't think of living in their basement room any longer if it was needed for Mrs. Morris. Judy seemed surprised at first. Then she told me there was no deed for me to move, for they hadn't yet come to any decision about her mother coming to live with them. "Naturally I'm worried about my mother. She has been in poor health." She smiled sadly and added. "To be honest, Andrew and my mother have never got on well. We'll wait a bit and see what happens. Perhaps Moter will be all right living herself, of perhaps they will both change their minds."
    That was six months ago. During this time I've heard that Mrs. Morris has had two illnesses and that her health has got worse. A nursing home was mentioned once but Mrs. Morris refused to go there. So up to now she's still living alone and I'm still living in the basement room.

    To discover whether bees can see colors, the following experiment is set up. A table is put in a garden, and on the table is a piece of blue cardboard (硬纸板) with a drop of syrup (糖浆) on it. After a short time, bees come to the syrup. The bees then fly to their hive (蜂蜜) and give the syrup to other bees in the hive. Then they return to the feeding-place which they have discovered. After a while, the blue cardboard with the syrup on it is taken away. Instead of this card, a blue card is now put on the left side of the first feeding-place and a red card to its right. These new cards have no syrup on them. Thus, the blue card is on the left, the red card on the right, and there is nothing where the first blue feeding-card used to be. Very soon bees arrive again, and fly straight to the blue card. None go to the red card.
1. To do the experiment, altogether how many cards do you need to prepare?
   A. Two, one blue and one red.                B. Three, two blue and one red.
   C. Three, one blue and two red.               D. Four, two blue and two red.
2. If figure 1 (图1) below shows the table top during step 1 of the experiment, which picture in
   figure 2 represents (代表) step 2?
    (blue card with syrup      blue card      red card   )    
3. During step 2 of the experiment, the bees come to ______.
   A. the original (原来的)blue card with syrup on it.
   B. the new blue card with no syrup on it.
   C. the empty space where the original blue card was.
   D. the new blue card with syrup on it.
4. The experiment has proved that bees ______.

Benin
    Benin is one of the smallest African states. It lies in West Africa on the Gulf (海湾) of Guinea, to the south of Burkina Faso and Niger, between Togo on the west and Nigeria on the east.
    Benin used to be called Dahomey and was controlled and ruled by France from 1893 to 1960, when it became independent (独立). In 1963 the army general Soglo overthrew (推翻) the first president. Maga. Soglo set up an army government and called himself head of state in 1965, but was overthrown and replaced (取代) by a civilian (非军人) government in 1967. In December 1969 Benin had another change of power with the army again taking over (接管). In May 1970, Maga and two other men set up a new government, with each of them acting as president in turn for two years. However, half a year after Maga turned over power to the second man Ahomadegbe, the three-man government was overthrown by the army once more and General Kerekou became president. In November 1975 Kerekou changed the name of the nation from Dahomey to Benin, Benin being the name of a 17th century kingdom covering the same place. Kerekou also announced that Benin would be a People's Republic based on Marxism-leninism.

    Have you eaten too much over the holidays? You should try fidgeting for a while. Those around you might not like it, but scratching (moving your nails (指甲) against a part of your body) and twitching (moving suddenly and quickly when you don' t want to) is an important way of burning up calories (卡路里).
    American researchers have found that some people's squirming (continuously turn your body when nervous) and wigging (move in small movements, especially from side to side) equals (等于) several miles of slow running each day.
    The scientists, based at the National Institute of Health's laboratory in Phenix, Arizona, are studying why some people get fat and other stay slim.
    In one study 177 people each spent 24 hours in a room in the institute where the amount (量) of energy is measured by their oxygen and carbon dioxide (二氧化碳) levels. By the end of the day, some people had burned up 800 calories in toe-tapping, (moving the front part of your foot up and down) finger-drumming (hitting your fingers continuously and lightly against something hard) and other nervous habits. However, others had burned up only 100 calories.
    The researchers found that slim women fidget more than fat women, but there was no significant difference in men. Heavy people burn up more energy when they fidget than do thin people.
1. Which of the following can be used to explain the meaning of "fidgeting"?
   A. scratching and twitching B. squirming and wigging

    I found out one time that doing a favor for someone could get you into a lot of trouble. I was in the eighth grade at the time, and we were having a final test. During the test, the girl sitting next to me whispered something, but I didn't understand. So I leaned over her way and found out that she was trying to ask me if I had an extra pen. She showed me that hers was out of ink and would not write. I happened to have an extra one, so I took it out of my pocket and put it on her desk.
    Later, after the test papers had been turned in, the teacher asked me to stay in the room when all the other students were dismissed. As soon as we were alone she began to talk to me about what it meant to grow up; she talked about how important it was to stand on your own two feet and be responsible (负责任) for your own acts. For a long time, she talked about honesty and emphasized the fact that when people do something dishonest, they are really cheating themselves. She made me promise that I would think seriously about all the things she had said, and then she told me I could leave. I walked out of the room wondering why she had chosen to talk to me about all those things.
    Later on, I found out that she thought I had cheated on the test. When she saw me lean over to talk to the girl next to me, it looked as if I was copying answers from the girl's test paper. I tried to explain about the pen, but all she could say was it seemed very very strange to her that I hadn't talked of anything about the pen the day she talked to me right after the test. Even if I tried to explain that I was just doing the girl a favor by letting her use my pen, I am sure she continued to believe that I had cheated on the test.

    To be a good teacher, you need some of the gifts of a good actor; you must be able to hold the attention and interest of your audience; you must be a clear speaker, with a good, strong, pleasing voice which is fully under your control; and you must be able to act what you are teaching, in order to make its meaning clear.
    Watch a good teacher, and you will see that he does not sit still before his class: he stands the whole time he is teaching; he walks about, using his arms, hands and fingers to help him in his explanations, and his face to express feelings. Listen to him, and you will hear the loudness, the quality (音色) and the musical note of his voice always changing according to what he is talking about.
    The fact that a good teacher has some of the gifts of a good actor doesn't mean that he will indeed be able to act well on the stage, for there are very important differences between the teacher's work and the actor's. The actor has to speak words which he has learnt by heart; he has to repeat exactly the same words each time he plays a certain part, even his movements and the ways in which he uses his voice are usually fixed beforehand (预先). What he has to do is to make all these carefully learnt words and actions seem natural on the stage.
    A good teacher works in quite a different way. His audience takes an active part in his play: they ask and answer questions, they obey orders, and if they don't understand something, they say so. The teacher therefore has to meet the needs of his audience, which is his class. He cannot learn his part by heart, but must invent it as he goes along.
    I have known many teachers who were fine actors in class but were unable to take part in a stage-play because they could not keep strictly to what another had written.
1. What is the text about ?
   A. How to become a good teacher.
   B. What a good teacher should do outside the classroom.
   C. What teachers and actors could learn from each other.
   D. The similarities(相似处) and differences between a teacher's work and an actor's.
2. The word "audience" in the fourth paragraph means ____ .
   A. students B. people who watch a play
   C. people who not on the stage D. people who listen to something
3. A good teacher ____ .
   A. knows how to hold the interest of his students B. must have a good voice
   C. knows how to act on the stage D. stands or sits still while teaching
4. In what way is a teacher's work different from an actor's ?
   A. The teacher must learn everything by heart .
   B. He knows how to control his voice better than an actor .
   C. He has to deal with unexpected situations .
   D. He has to use more facial expressions .
5. The main difference between students in class and a theatre audience is that ____.
   A. students can move around in the classroom
   B. students must keep silent while theatre audience needn't
   C. no memory work is needed for the students
   D. the students must take part in their teachers' plays
6. Why is it that some good teachers are unable to play well on the stage ?
   A. Nobody has taught them how to act on the stage .
   B. Their audiences are different .
   C. It is impossible for them to do so much memory work .
   D. They are not used to repeating exactly the same words .
7. Which of the following is true ?
   A. Teachers have to learn by heart what they are going to say in class .
   B. A teacher cannot decide beforehand what exactly he is going to say in class .
   C. A teacher must speak louder than an actor .
   D. A teacher must have a better memory than an actor .

    In 1909 an English newspaper offered £ 1,000 to the first man to fly across the English Channel in an aeroplane. Today, modern jets cross it in minutes. But at that time it still seemed a good distance. The race to win the money soon became a race between two men. Both were very colourful.
    One was Louis Bleriot. He owned a factory in France that made motor car lamps. He was already well known as a pilot (飞行员) because he had had accidents several times. Some people laughed at him. One man said, "He may not be the first to fly across the Channel but he will certainly be the first to die in an accident!" But Bleriot was really a good and brave pilot. He also had many good ideas about aeroplane design.
    The other man was Hubert Latham. He was half French and half English. He took up flying when his doctors told him he had only a year to live. "Oh, well," he said, "if I' m going to die soon, I think I shall have a dangerous and interesting life now." Latham was the first to try the flight (飞行) across the Channel. Ten kilometres from the French coast, his plane had some trouble. It fell down into the water and began to sink under the water. A boat reached Latham just in time. He was sitting calmly on the wing and was coolly lighting a cigarette (香烟). Bleriot took off six days later. He flew into some very bad weather and very low cloud. He somehow got to the English side and landed in a farmer's field. When he did so, a customs (海关) officer rushed up to his plane. Planes have changed since then, but customs officers have not. "Have you anything to declare?" The officer demanded.
1. The story took place ____ .
   A. in the early 20th century B. in the 19th century

   B. He wanted to be the first one to cross the Channel.

   A. Latham became a pilot on the doctor's advice.
   B. He was told he could live another year.
   C. His plane had some trouble.
   D. He was saved by a boat when his plane was sinking.
6. Why did the costumes officer rush to the plane?
   A. To see if everything was all right with the plane.
   B. To make sure that the pilot was not hurt.
   C. To ask why the plane had landed in a farmer's field.
   D. None of the above.
7. "Do you have anything to declare?" means ____ .
   A. "Do you want any help?"

    My father, at the death of his father, was six years old, and he grew up without education. He moved from Kentucky to Indiana when I was seven. We reached our new home about the time the state came into the Union. It was a wild area, with many bears and other wild animals still in the woods. I grew up there. There were some so-called schools, but what was required of a teacher never went beyond "reading, writing, and adding." If a stranger supposed to understand Latin happened to live for a time in the area, he was looked on as wizard (奇才). There was simply nothing to excite a desire for education. Of course, when I grew up, I did not know much. Still, somehow, I could read, write, and add, but that was all. The advance I have now made is on this store of education, which I have picked up under the pressure of necessity.

    The flying fox is not a fox at all. It is an extra large bat that has got a fox's head, and that feeds on fruit instead of insects (昆虫). Like all bats, flying foxes hang themselves by their toes when at rest, and travel in great crowds when out flying. A group will live in one spot for years. Sometimes several hundred of them occupy (占据) a single tree. As they return to the tree toward sunrise, they quarrel among themselves and fight for the best places until long after daylight.
    Flying foxes have babies once a year, giving birth to only one at a time. At first the mother has to carry the baby on her breast wherever she goes. Later she leaves it hanging up, and brings back food for it to eat. Sometimes a baby bat falls down to the ground and squeaks (尖叫) for help. Then the older ones swoop (俯冲) down and try to pick it up. If they fail to do so, it will die. Often hundreds of dead baby bats can be found lying on the ground at the foot of a tree.
1. The passage tells us that there is no difference between the flying fox and the ordinary bat in______.
   A. their size.                             B. their appearance.
