Passage one Michael Phelps has already been considered by some as the greatest all-around competitor in the history of his sport. At the 2004 U.S. Trials, Phelps qualified for Athens in six individual events across every possible stroke. He finally earned five titles of Olympic champion. Should Phelps match Mark Spitz's record in Athens or Beijing in 2008, he will earn a $1 million bonus from his sponsor. Michael Phelps was born to June 30, 19
  85. His father was a good athlete, and passed his ability on to his kids. Michael's coach told Michaelc's mother that her son was a rare telent.Long-limbed with big hands and feet, he took to instruction very well, loved to work hard and never seemed nervous is competition. By all accounts, his frame is perfect for a swimmer. His big hands and feet are like paddles in the water. The butterfly is his signature stroke, but he's shown the ability to dominate in any event. In 1999,Michael broke a record in the 200-meter butterfly for the 20-year-old age group at th Junior Nationals.At 15, Michael became the youngest swimmer to compete Sydney Olympics for the U.S.in 68 years. In an astonishing performance, he medaled six times and set five world records.

Passage Two Most personnel managers agree that job interviews are one of the least objective recruiment methods.But the advantages of testing are not going to change the attraction of the interview to employers . The appeal of the interview has everything to do with the human factor. Most people believe that they are a reasonable judge of character and trust their instinctive feeling. We might use some kind of test to aid the selection process, but we usually pick a candidate who interviews well, has good qualifications and impressive work record. But suppose the candidate lies or is less than completely honest. "This can be a serious problem for employers", explains Alan Conrad, Chief Executive at Optimus Recruiment. "The most difficult liars to find are those who tell half-truths rather than complete lies."Research shows that up to 75 percent of resumes are inaccurate on purpose. The most common practice is omission. Interviewer should therefore concentrate on areas of uncertainy such as gaps between periods of employment and job descriptions that seem strange. "Focusing on these areas will force candidates to tell the truth or become increasingly dishonest. This is usually when people signal their anxiety by their body language. Sweat on the upper lip, false smiles and nervous hand movements all indicate discomfort." Conrad does not suggest an aggressive policy-style interview technique , but insists that close inspection of a resume is absolutely essential. Only by asking the right questions can you confirm the suitability of the candidate or put pressure on those who are being less than completely honest.
  21. The best title of this passage can be . A. How to Catch Out the Dishonest Candidate B. How to Find a Job by Tricks C. Disadvantages of Job Interviews D. Advantages of Job Interviews
  22. The liars hard to recognize are those who tell. A. complete truths B. complete lies C. partial truths D. mainly truths
  23. How were the job applicants able to lie without being detected? A. By leaving out some necessary information B. By providing more information than needed. C. By using their body language. D. By telling some unbelievable lies.
  24. In order to pick up a qualified and an honest candidate, Conrad suggests that we . A. examine the resumes carefully B. inspect the candidates aggressively C. correct the resumes intentionally D. compare one's resume with others'
  25. What is the author's attitude towards job interviews? A. Most objective B. Too subjective. C. Suspicious D. Credulous. Passage Three Our world is wonderful with birds that are absolutely amazing and unbelievable.One kind of such birds is the coot?a clumsy bird so unloved that its name implies something of an old fool."The bird has a remarkable ability to recognize amd count its eggs," says behavioral
ecologist Bruce Lyon of the University of California at Santa Cruz. Coots need to be tricky because of the nunsual way the animals. Compete: One coot will put its eggs secretly into another's nest to trick the host into raising the invader's eggs. But nest owners use their wits to fight back, Lyon finds. Over four summers, Lyon monitored 400 coot nests near Williams Lake in central British Columbia, tagging the eggs with a marker. Of these , 160 coot nests received eggs from unrelated coots. The hosts generally were not fooled, however,. About half the time, coot parents rejected the strange eggs completely, usually by burying them deep in the nest. "Foreign eggs were not disappearing by chance and that can only mean the birds were recognizing them, "Lyon says. Apparently , the coots were alerted by the unfamiliar colors and patterns on the foreign eggs. In other cases, the parents pushed the foreign eggs to an unfavorable position at the border area of the nest, where there is less heat for hatching. Even if a mother coot didn't remove the foreign eggs from her nest, she continued to lay a normal hatch number of her own eggs, despite the apparent extra foreign eggs. Lyon thinks that means the coots somehow kept a count of both their own eggs and the suspicious ones. "That coots can distinguish their own eggs from the foreign ones is a rare but very convincing example of counting wild animal world," the ecologist concluded.
  26. The meaning of the bird's name "coot"probably is . A. wonderful and amazing B. unusual and remarkable C. secret and unbelievable D. old and silly
  27. In the passage, "foreign eggs" refers to . A. the eggs of the nest owners B. the eggs of the invaders C.the eggs from foreign countries D. the eggs unable to be hatched
  28. Which of the following is the particular way coots often compete? A. To steal some eggs from other nests. B. To put their own eggs into others' nests. C. To hatch other coots' eggs. D. To protect their own eggs.
  29. Which would the nest owners do with the foreign eggs according to the passage? Ⅰ. Burying them deep in the nests. Ⅱ. Pushing them aside to an unfavorable area. Ⅲ. Hatching them as their own. A. Ⅰ.only B. Ⅱ.only C. Ⅰ.land Ⅱ. D. Ⅰ.,Ⅱ.and Ⅲ.
  30. Which of the following is the particular ability the ecologist believes that the coot has? A. To trick other coots. B. To fight back the tricks. C. To be alert to the foreign eggs. D. To recognize and count its own eggs. Passage Four National Aviation and Space Administration (NASA) and its partners in the Inter-national Space Station have agreed in principle to let a 28-year-old South African become the second paying tourist on the orbiting outpost, the U.S. space agency said on Tuesday. Internet magnate Mark Shuttleworth signed a contract on Dec.4 with the Russian Aviation and Space Agency(RASA) to fly aboard a Soyuz space taxi to the station in April 2002, almost exactly a year after U.S.millionaire Dennis Tito became the first to experience space as a paying guest. NASA spokeswoman Kristen Larson said by telephone:"We've agreed in principle to the
flight of Mr. Shuttleworth. However, there are some final details that need to be taken of ."Larson would not say what details needed resolving , but said the station's international partnersincluding the space agencies of Russia, Europe, Japan and Canadahad drafted a set of requirements for space travelers covering "physical ability, psychological ability, language ability" and "length and appropriateness of training." Outgoing commander Frank Culbertson of the space station said the new crew replacing his was going to be extremely busy. "The station is for workers, and it puts an additional burden on
