It may be ‘40' from collecting stamps to making model airplanes. Some hobbies are very '41'; others don't '42' at all.

A short time ago he bought a rare(稀有的) fifty cent piece '45' 250! He was very happy about his collection and thought the price was '
  46. '47', my youngest brother'48'match boxes. He has almost 600 of them but I doubt if they are worth any money. However, '49' my brother they are extremely(特别地) '50'.Nothing makes him '51' than to find a new match box for his collection. That’s '52' a hobby means, I think.

The flashes reflected light could be seen several miles away. The enemy did not know what the flashes meant, but other Greek soldiers could understand the messages. Roman soldiers in some places built long rows of signal towers. When they had a message to send, the soldiers shouted it from tower to tower. If there were enough towers and enough soldiers with loud voices, important news could be sent quickly over distance. In Africa, people learned to send messages by beating on a series of large drums(鼓). Each drum was kept within
2
hearing distance of the next one. The drum beats were sent out in a special way that all the drummers understood. Though the messages were simple, they could be sent at great speed for hundreds of miles. In the eighteenth century, a French engineer found a new way to send short messages. In this way, a person held a flag in each hand and the arms were moved to various positions representing different letters of the alphabet. It was like spelling out words with flags and arms. Over a long period of time, people sent messages by all these different ways. However, not until the telephone was invented in America in the nineteenth century could people send speech sounds over a great distance in just a few seconds.
  65. According to this passage, the Roman way of communication depended very much upon . [A] fine weather [B] high tower [C] the spelling system [D] arm movements
  66. Which of the following statements is true? [A] Neither the Greek soldiers nor their enemy could understand the message. [B] African soldiers shouted from tower to tower to pass message. [C] Telephone was invented by a French engineer. [D] Only by using telephone could people send speech sounds quickly.
  67. The African way of communication sent messages. [A] in a special way [B] over a very short distance [C] by a musical instrument [D] at a rather slow speed
  68. The way of communication made use of visible signs. [A] French [B] Roman [C] African [D] American Because we can feel that things are heavy, we think of weight as being a fixed quality in an object, but it is not really fixed at all. If you could take a one pound packet of butter 4, 000 miles out from the earth, it would weigh only a quarter of a pound. Why would things weigh only a quarter as much as they do at the surface of the earth if we took them 4 000 miles out into space? The reason is this: All objects have a natural attraction for all other objects; this is called gravitational attraction, but this power of attraction between two objects gets weaker as they get farther apart. When the butter was at the surface of the earth, it was 4 000 miles from the centre (in other words the radius 半径) the earth is 4 000 miles) ( of . When we took the butter 4 000 miles out, it was 8 000 miles from the centre, which is twice the distance. If you double the distance between two objects, their gravitational attraction decreases(减少)two times two. If you treble(翻三倍)the distance, it gets nine times weaker(three times three). If you take it four times as far away, it gets sixteen times weaker(four times four)and so on.
  69. The best title for this passage is. [A] The Earth Weight [B] Weight in Space [C] Changing Weight on the Earth [D] Weight on and off the Earth
  70. We can feel things are heavy because. [A] weight is a fixed quality in an object [B] they are far away from the centre of the earth [C] of the earth's strong attraction for them [D] they are not taken away from the surface of the earth

  71. If the distance between two objects is shortened by half, their gravitational attraction will. [A] double [B] become four times stronger [C] be the same [D] get four times weaker
  72. If an object weighed one pound 8 000 miles above the earth, it would weigh on the surface of the earth. [A] 6 pounds [B] 4 pounds [C] 9 pounds [D] 1/9 pound In the 1900's, American townspeople usually washed and brushed their teeth and combed their hair in the kitchen. Or they kept a water pitcher (大水罐)and a wash basin in their rooms and took care of these things there. The bathtub was a wash tub (澡盆) filled with water from the stove. If you were small enough you could sit down by drawing your knees to your chest. Otherwise, you washed yourself standing up. Often all the women and girls in the family bathed together. Then the men and boys did. In most families this was Saturday night because Sundays they went to church. A small number of families did have running water. But that depended on whether there was a water system where they lived and on whether they could afford the plumbing (水管设施) Some people had bathtubs in their homes as early . as 18
  95. But many others did not have their first bath in a bathtub until 1910 or later when they were fifteen or sixteen years old.? 56?In the first paragraph, "took care of" means ""。 [A] kept [B] looked after [C] used [D] kept and used
  57. In order to use the water from the stove, there be a pipe connecting the tub with the stove. [A] must [B] seemed to [C] needn't [D] should
  58. Which of the following statements is true? [A] Males and females in the family took turns using the bathtub. [B] Some bathtubs were big enough for many people to bathe in at the same time. [C] All the women and girls of a family could bathe together standing up in the tub. [D] When several family members bathed together, they did not use the bathtub.
  59. Americans owned a bathtub as early as 18
  95. [A] Many [B] Not all [C] All [D] Few
  60. We can infer(推断)that the plumbing at that time. [A] cost little [B] was more expensive than a water system [C] was too expensive for every family to afford [D] was not necessary What are some of the steps a person can take to prevent his house from being broken into while he is away? One step is to make sure that the house seems a lived-in one. Living room curtains should be pulled down only half-way. Bedrooms that usually have the curtains pulled down at night should be left down. Another is to make sure that all outside locks are the dead-bolt type (双保险) . Still another is to leave several 100W lights burning and make sure that one is in the kitchen. Lights that turned on and off by themselves are the best. Then, too, it is a good idea to leave the radio turned

on and set to a talking station. Any type of speaking makes a thief think twice before trying to enter. Finally, while away on holiday, make sure that nothing collects in front or in the house. Particularly, make certain that the newspaper is stopped and that a trusted neighbor has been asked to pick up the mail. Thieves are especially quick to notice piled-up newspapers and overpiled mail boxes.
