Christine was recently digging through old boxes in her storeroom preparing to move to a new house. In one box, she came across a magazine of June 2, 19
  86. There's a reason Christine had saved the magazine for 20 years. In its pages, she was one of more than a dozen women reported in an article discussing the "cruel reality" of their poor marriage prospects (前景). At the time Christine was living in Chicago and greatly annoyed by the fact that her social life didn't seem to be progressing toward a trip down the aisle. "I had a lot of girlfriends in the same boat," she says. But a funny thing happened. At age 40, she married; a few weeks ago she and her husband celebrated their 10th anniversary (周年纪念). Today she' s the happy mom to two children from her husband's first marriage. Looking back on her single days, she remembers her unhappiness. "I had the same feeling that many women have, which is that you're not considered a whole person unless you're married with children," she says. "But as I reached my 40s, I realized that was totally wrong ... I could still have a very fulfilling life. " It was only after she' d come to peace with the fact that she might never marry that she met her future husband while shopping in a supermarket. To mark the 20th anniversary of this story, reporters sought out as many of the women in the story as they could find. Out of 14 single women in the article, 11 were found. Among them, 吨 ht ended up marrying, and three remain single. Several had children. None divorced(离婚) . For her part, Christine isn't surprised. "I've watched a lot of people, married while young, get divorced," she says. "I think that if you do wait until Mr. Right comes along, you have a much better chance. "
  36. How old was Christine 20 years ago? A 20 B 30 C 40 D 50
  37. We learn from the text that twenty years ago, Christine A started her hobby by collecting magazines B had a lot of girlfriends visiting her C was worried about her marriage D was in an unhappy marriage
  38. Why had Christine saved the magazine for so many years? A An article about her was printed in i B It described her social life in Chicag C An article written by her was published in i D It helped women like her to find their MRigh
  39. The underlined phrase "a trip down the aisle" (line 5, Para.
  2) probably means. A getting married B becoming famous C travelling by plane D going on a honeymoon
  40. What was Christine's idea about marriage and life when she was going on 40? A One cannot be a whole person without marriage and childre B One can live a happy life whether married or unmarrie C She might meet her future husband in a supermarke
D She will never think of divorce once marrie B Art Without Limit Art should not be limited to a museum. "Art and creative elements (创造性元素) can be mixed into daily life," said Professor Cheng of the Fine Arts Department. Public art can be seen as a realization of Professor Cheng's words above. It is simply artwork presented in the public space, where one could walk by any day. Connie Yu, a businesswoman, likes the idea of public art. "I like the idea of bringing art to people, rather than people to art. " However, the idea of public art is not very well developed in Hong Kong. A walk through the central area only presents one with a limited number of public art pieces. Most of them seem to be more for the purpose of decoration (装饰) than presenting art to the public. Also, people do not pay much attention to them. Alex Chan, a 34-year-old Hong Kong artist, said, "Public art is a great way to express yourself as an artist, to give something to people who don't normally go to the museums, and to give them a break from their daily life. It is just a shame that it’s not so common in Hong Kong. "
  41. What is "public art" according to the text? A Fine art pieces in museum B Art exhibitions for the artist. C Artwork by ordinary peopl D Art pieces in public place
  42. Which of the-following best explains Connie Yu's words? A Art piece should be sold at low price B Art pieces should be brought to peopl C People should be persuaded to come to the museum D More artwork about ordinary people should be produce
  43. According to the author, public art in Hong Kong A is warmly received by artists B has attracted the museum-goers C has much room for improvement D is strongly supported by the government C If you could give anything in the world to your child, you might want to give a love of words. Young children who can express their feelings don't have as many temper tantrums (发脾气). They also learn to control themselves using words. A two -year -old child reaches toward the oven (烤箱) door, then stops, tells herself, "Hot, hot," and turns away. Researchers call this " self -directed speech". It' s one of the ways children learn to do what' s right and not to do what's wrong. With each new word, a child gains a broader view of the world. Early on, all four -legged animals are dogs or maybe cats. But new words change them into horses, cows, elephants, and zebras. Children who have a wealth of words have a wealth of ideas. By age four, the number of words a child understands tells us how easily that a child will learn to read in school. It even tells us how well she'll be able to understand what she reads, and to express her ideas in writing later on. So, how do you give your child this wonderful gift? First of all, talk a lot. Talk when you're
feeding or preparing a bottle; talk when you're doing the dishes or walking down the street. Second, do a lot of listening. Even before your child can speak clearly, ask questions and listen for answers. Assume(设想) that your child has ideas, and try to figure out what they are. Researchers have found a direct connection between the number of words a child knows and the number of words he hears, and especially the number of questions he is invited to answer. Third, read aloud every day. There are many reasons for reading aloud, but maybe the best is that books contain words; lots of new, different, interestil1g words. Here's an exciting thing that happens when you read aloud every day: You begin to hear "book words" in your child's speech. You're walking down the street, and you see a pretty flower. "Look," you say, "a pretty flower. " "Actually," your child corrects, "it's beautiful." Actually? Beautiful? That's when you know you've truly given your child a love of words.
  44. A two-year-old child uses the word" Hot, hot" (line 4-5, Para.I) A to prevent herself from being hurt B to learn a new word C to warn her parents of the danger D to show her large collection of words
  45. In the author's opinion, who should do a lot of listening? A The book writers B The researchers C The parents D The child
  46. What is the main subject discussed in the text? A Value of reading aloud ωchildren B Power of words in children's growth C Mind development of young children D Ways to develop a love of reading in children
  47. When the child uses "beautiful" to respond to the mother, it shows that A the child loves certain words better than others B the word "beautiful" is used more by children C reading has improved the child's language D the child has the ability to correct parents 来源:考试大-公共英语考试 D They first arrived on British ships almost 200 years ago, with the aim of cutting bac k a rapid growth of rat (鼠) population. Then the cats themselves became the problem. A fter dealing with the rats", they turned to birds-and now hundreds of them have been kille d in a move to protect rare (稀有) birds. Even cat lovers have been persuaded to back th e move, after being told that there was no other choice. When British sailors took control of Ascension Island in 1815, they found nobody liv ing on it but that it was overrun with rats which had escaped from sinking ships. They i ntroduced cats to kill the rats-and were soon overrun by cats. By 1820 they were sending back to England for dogs to kill the cats, but that didn' t work. Ever since the wild cat population has been attacking the birds. Man introduced these cats, and it has disturbed the balance. Ascension Island is a mo
st important seabird gathering place. We have to undo man' s mistake in bringing cats her e. Action has been taken to kill off wild cats for the protection of birds. Only cats raised as pets are allowed. Since they are micro-chipped (加电子芯片的), if they get caught the y can be sent back to their owner. The action can be considered rather successful. The ca t population is down to the last few-they're the most difficult ones to catch.
  48. The best title for the text would be . A Killing Cats to Save Rats B Problems with Shipping Cats C Fighting between Cats and Rats D Keeping the Rat Population Down
  49. Which of the following fust came to the island? A The cats B The rats C The sailors D The birds
  50. People on the island have been taking action to . A forbid having cats as pets B stop the killing of birds C catch and kill all the cats D send all cats back to England
  51. What does the author mean by saying, "We have to undo man' s mistake in brin ging cats here" (Paragraph 3 ) ? A Friendly animals such as dogs should have been introduce B Men should remove the bad effect caused by cat C Man should have a better understanding of cat D Cats are not as valuable as other
