Maybe ten-year-old Elizabeth put it best when she said to her father, “But, Dad, you can’t be healthy if you’re dead.”
Dad, in a hurry to get home before dark so he could go for a run, had forgotten to wear his safely belt- a mistake 75% of the US population mike every day. The big question is why.
There have been many myths about safety belts ever since their first appearance in cars some forty years ago. The following are three of the most common.
Myth Number One: It’s best to be “thrown clear” of a serious accident.
Truth: Sorry, but any accident serious enough to “throw you clear” is also going to be serious enough to give you a very bad landing. And chances are you’ll have traveled through a wind shield (擋風玻璃)or door to do it. Studies show that chances of dying after a car accident are twenty-five times greater in cases where people are “thrown clear".
Myth Number Two: Safety belts “trap” people in cars that are burning or sinking in water.
Truth: Sorry again, but studies show that people knocked unconscious(昏迷)due to not wearing safely belts have a greater chance of dying in these accidents. People wearing safely belts are usually protected to the point of having a clear head to free themselves from such dangerous situations, not to be trapped in them.
Myth Number Three: Safely belts aren’t needed at speeds of less than 30 miles per hour( mph).
Truth: When two cars traveling at 30 mph hit each other, an unbelted driver would meet the windshield with a force equal to diving headfirst into the ground from a height of 10 meters.
61. Why did Elizabeth say to her father, “But, Dad, you can’t be healthy if you’re dead”?
A. He was driving at great speed.
B. He was running across the street.
C. He didn’t have his safety belt on.
D. He didn’t take his medicine on time.
62 The reason Father was in a hurry to get home was that he __________,
A. wasn’t feeling very well
B. hated to drive in the dark
C. wanted to take some exercise
D. didn’t want to be caught by the police
63. According to the text, to he “thrown clear” of a serious accident is very dangerous because you _________.
A. may be knocked down by other cars
B. may get seriously hurt being thrown out of the car
C. may find it impossible to get away from the seat
D. may get caught in the car door
64. Some people prefer to drive without wearing a safety belt because they believe ________.
A. the belt prevents them from escaping in an accident
B. they will be unable to think clearly in an accident
C. they will be caught when help comes
D. cars catch fire easily
65. What is the advice given in the text?
A. Never drive faster than 30 miles an hour.
B. Try your best to save yourself in a car accident.
C. Never forget to wear the safely belt while driving.
D. Drive slowly while you’re not wearing a safety belt.
Doomed beauties such as Cleopatra and Marilvn Monroe were far from alone in their misery. Very attractive people tend to form partnerships that are less stable and satisfying than those enjoyed by plain Janes.
According to research by Dr John Blaine of the University of Southem Califormia, relationships between people whose professions largely depend on their appearances, such as models or actors, tend to end much faster than those between lawyers, doctors or students.
Blaine said the beautiful felt different from childhood. They are treated as special, which may create both arrogance(傲慢)and insecurity. All too often, beauty can be used as an alternative to education. Often they are pushed out of their class or town, told to go off and make their fortune in Hollywood or London and, when the majority fail, they have few talents to make a living.
Blaine added that beautiful people score poorly on the “big five” —the key factors American experts consider when helping distressed couples. These are neuroticism(神經過敏), including anger and anxiety; extroversion(性格外向); openness to new experiences; agreeableness; and conscientiousness, or sticking by agreements they have made. Attractive people often see no reason to try to change until their looks start to fade.
Krista Sutherland, of the University of California Los Angeles, said partnerships that appeared to be perfect from the outside, such as the former “dream teams” of Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise or Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley, where backgrounds and aspirations(抱負)are often shared, did not necessarily lead to happiness.
66. What does the underlined sentence “Doomed beauties such as Cleopatra and Marilyn Monroe were far from alone in their misery.” means?
A. Beautiful women always felt lonely.
B. Beautiful women always were alone.
C. Many beautiful women didn't end up with a happy life.
D. Beautiful women always lived a happy life.
67. The underlined phrase “plain Janes” in the passage refer to __________.
A. ordinary-looking women B. women called Jane
C. common people D. attractive women
68. We can infer in the passage that _________,
A. Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley were a couple
B. Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise were very satisfied with their life
C. When they fail in Hollywood, the beautiful have little trouble in making a living
D. The marriage of the beautiful often last long
69. Which of the following is the best title?
A. Five key factors affecting the partnership
B. Beauties are doomed to fail in love
C. Beauties or common?
D. The beautiful are different.
Wind is the great maker of waves. There are exceptions, such as the tidal(潮汐的)waves sometimes produced by earthquakes under the sea. But the waves most of us know are produced by winds blowing over the sea.
Now before constructing an imaginary life history of a typical wave, we need to know certain physical things about it. Awave has height, from trough(low point)to crest (high point). It has length-the distance from this crest to that of the following wave. The period of the wave means the time it takes for succeeding crests to pass a fixed point. None of these things stays the same-for all depend upon the wind, upon the depth of the water and many other matters.
The water that makes up a wave does not advance with it across the sea. Each drop of water turns around in a little circle with the passing of the wave, but returns very nearly to its original position. And it is fortunate that this is so. For if the huge masses of water that make up a wave actually moved across the sea, sailing would be impossible.
If we want to find the speed of a wave, we may use the following way：
Here, wavelength is the distance between two high points(crests), frequency means the number of cycles per second.
70. What causes waves?
A. Earthquakes and nothing else. B. Only wind.
C. Wind causes most waves. D. Wind causes some waves.
71. Which of the following is true according to the passage?
A. The water of a wave moves away across the sea.
B. The water of a wave remains almost at the same place.
C. The waster of a wave goes with the passing of the ware.
D. The length of a wave means the distance from the top of a wave to the bottom.
72. The speed of Wave 1 is 100cm/s, frequency 10. The frequency of Wave 2 is 300, while its speed is twice that of Wave 1. Which of the following is right?
A. The wavelength of the two is equal.
B. The wavelength of Wave 1 is 10 times longer than that of Wave 2.
C. The wavelength of Wave 2 is longer than that of Wave 1.
D. The wavelength of Wave 1 is longer than that of Wave 2.
Reading to dogs is an unusual way to help children improve their literacy skills. With their shining brown eyes, wagging tails, and unconditional love, dogs can provide the nonjudgmental listeners needed for a beginning reader to gain confidence, according to Intermountain Therapy Animals (ITA) in Salt Lake City. The group says it is the first program in the country to use dogs to help develop literacy in children, with the introduction of Reading Edueation Assistance Dogs(READ).
The Salt Lake City Public Library is sold on the idea. “Literacy specialists admit that children who read below the level of their fellow pupils are often afraid of reading aloud in a group, often have lower self-respect, and regard reading as a headache,” said Lisa Myron, manager of the children’s department.
Last November, the two groups started “Dog Day Afternoon” in the children's department of the main library. About 25 children attended each of the four Saturday-afternoon classes, reading for half an hour. Those who attended three of the four classes received a “pawgraphed” book at the last class.
The program was so successful that the library plans to repeat it in April, according to Dana Thumpowsky, public relations manager.
73. What is mainly discussed in the text?
A. Children’s reading difficulties. B. Advantages of raising dogs.
C. Service in public library D. A special reading program.
74. Specialists use dogs to listen to children reading because they think ______________.
A. dogs are young children's best friends
B. children can play with dogs while reading
C. dogs can provide encouragement for shy children
D. children and dogs understand each other
75. By saying “The Salt Lake City Public Library is sold on the idea”, the writer means the library ____________.
A. uses dogs to attract children
B, accepts the idea put forward by ITA
C. has opened a children's department
D. has decided to train some dogs
76. A “pawgraphed” book is most probably_____________.
A. a book used in Saturday classes B. a book written by the children
C. a prize for the children D. a gift from parents

It is generally well known that in a number of particularly dangerous parts of the world, for example the Middle East and the Indian/Pakistan border region, there are countries which either possess, or have the technology to produce, nuclear weapons. It is also worth remembering, however, that the country which possesses more nuclear weapons than any other, the United States, is the only power ever to have used nuclear weapons against people.
Nuclear weapons were first developed in the United States during the Second World War, to be used against Germany. However by the time the first bombs were ready for use, the war with Germany had ended and, as a result, the decision was made to use the weapons against Japan instead. Hiroshima and Nagasaki have suffered the consequence of this decision to the present day.
The real reasons why bombs were dropped on two heavily-populated cities are not altogether clear. A number of people in 1944 and early 1945 argued that the use of nuclear weapons world be unnecessary, since American Intelligence was aware that some of the most powerful and influential people in Japan had already realized that the war was lost, and wanted to negotiate a Japanese surrender. It was also argued that, since Japan has few natural resources, a blockade by the American navy would force it to surrender within a few weeks, and the use of nuclear weapons would thus prove unnecessary. If a demonstration of force was required to end the war, a bomb could be dropped over an unpopulated area like a desert, in front of Japanese observers, or over an area of low population inside Japan, such as a forest. Opting for this course of action might minimize the loss of further lives on all sides, while the power of nuclear weapons would still be adequately demonstrated.
All of these arguments were rejected, however, and the general consensus was that the quickest way to end the fighting would be to use nuclear weapons against centers of population inside Japan. In fact, two of the more likely reasons why this decision was reached seem quite shocking to us now.
Since the beginning of the Second World War both Germany and Japan had adopted a policy of genocide(i. e. killing as many people as possible, including civilians). Later on, even the US and Britain had used the strategy of fire bombing cities(Dresden and Tokyo, for example)in order to kill, injure and intimidate as many civilians as possible. Certainly, the general public in the West had become used to hearing about the deaths of largo numbers of people, so the deaths of another few thousand Japanese, who were the enemy in any case, would not seem particularly unacceptable-a bit of 'justifiable’ revenge for the Allies’own losses, perhaps.
The second reason is not much easier to comprehend. Some of the leading scientists in the world had collaborated to develop nuclear weapons, and this development had resulted in a number of major advances in technology and scientific knowledge. As a result, a lot of normal, intelligent people wanted to see nuclear weapons used; they wanted to see just how destruct five this new invention could be. It no doubt turned out to be even more ‘effective’ than they had imagined.
81. “a demonstration of force” in paragraph 3 refers to _________.
A. a show of strength
B. a full attack
C. a parade of weapons
D. a meeting between the armies
82. According to paragraph 3, a blockade would have been successful because _________.
A. Japan has to import most of its natural resources like coal and steel
B. Japan would not be resourceful enough to beat a blockade
C. an attack would probably destroy Japanese resources within a few weeks
D. the Americans could defeat Japan’s navy since it was short of resources
83. According to paragraph 5, which of the following is true?
A. People in the West had got used to hearing the sounds of people dying.
B. It would probably not be wise to inform people in the West of the deaths.
C. Scientists thought only a few thousand people would die if the bombs were used.
D. People in the West would accept that some people had to die to end the war.
