ar by acting in strange ways. Before a Chinese quake in 1975 snakes awoke from their winter sleep early only to freeze to death in the cold air. Cows broke their halters(缰绳)and tried to escape. Chickens refused to enter their coops. All of this unusual behavior, as well as physical changes in Earth, alerted Chinese scientists to the coming quake. They moved people away from the dangerous area and saved thousands of lives. One task for scientists today is to learn exactly which types of animal’s behavior predicts quakes. It’s not an easy job. First of all, not every animal can react to the danger of an earthquake. Just before a California quake in 1977, for example, an Arabian horse became very nervous and tried to break out of his stall. The horse next to it, however, remained perfectly clam. It’s also difficult at times to tell the difference between normal animals’ restlessness and “earthquake nerves”. A zoo keeper once called earthquake researchers to say that his cougar(美洲狮)had been acting strangely. It turned out that the cat had an upset stomach! A second task for scientists is to find out exactly what kind of warnings the animals receive. They know that animals sense far more of the world than humans do. Many animals can see, hear, and smell things that people do not even notice. Some can detect tiny changes in air pressure, gravity, or the magnetism(磁力)of Earth. This extra sense probably helps animals predict quakes.
  59. What’s the main idea of the passage? A. Animals don’t know when an earthquake is coming. B. Animals can predict earthquakes. C. The author doesn’t know whether animals can feel the coming of an earthquake. D. Human beings have to move the animals away before an earthquake is coming.
  60. From the passage, which of the following statements may NOT happen before the earthquake? A. Snakes freeze to death in the cold open air. B. Chickens refuse to enter into coops. C. Cows break their halters and try to escape. D. Birds fly all over the sky.
  61. Some animals could predict earthquakes because they can detect tiny changes . A. in the air pressure B. in gravity C. in the magnetism of the earth D. All of the above
  62. How do all the animals exactly know when an earthquake is coming? A. By their extra senses. B. By the changes in air pressure, gravity or the magnetism. C. People don’t know exactly. D. The passage doesn’t mention it.
  63. The author’s purpose is mainly to . A. express an argument B. make a serious proposal C. present a discovery D. tell a story D When I was growing up, I didn’t want to be seen with my father. He was crippled(腿瘸)and very short, and when we walked together, he put a hand on my arm for balance. People would stare. I would struggle at the unwanted attention. If he ever noticed or was bothered, he never let on. I was unhappy when walking with him and because of that, we didn’t say mach as we went along. But as we started out, he always said, “You set the pace, I will try to adjust to you.” Our usual walk was to or from the subway (地铁)on which he traveled to work. He went to work even when he was sick, and despite bad weather, he almost never missed a day, and would make it to the office even if others could not. It was a matter of pride for him. When snow or ice was on the
ground, it was impossible for him to walk even with help. At such times my sisters or I would pull him through the street of Brooklyn, NY, on a child’s wagon with steel runners to the subway entrance. In Manhattan the subway station was the basement of his office building, and he would not have to go outside again until we met him in Brooklyn on his way home. When I think of it now, I am amazed at how much courage it must have taken for a grown man to such shame and stress and at how he did it without complaint. He never talked about himself as an object of pity, nor did he show any envy to the more fortunate or able. What he looked for in others was a good heart. Now that I am older, I believe that is a proper standard by which to judge people, even though I still don’t know exactly what a good heart is. This is all because of my father. He always set a good example to his children.
  64. The writer didn’t like to walk with his father in public because . A. he himself had difficulty walking B. his father was short and had difficulty walking C. his father walked so fast that he couldn’t keep up D. his father was too strict with him to work.
  65. His father usual A. took a bus B. rode a bicycle C. took the subway D. drove his own car
  66. His father would go to work even when the weather was bad, which showed that . A. he had a strong will B. he needed money so badly. C. he was afraid of being fired D. he loved his children so much .
  67. We can infer from the last paragraph that A. the writer still dislikes going out with his father. B. the writer is proud of his father. C. his father thought of himself as an object of pity. D. his father envied those more fortunate people. E MySpace, the social networking website(网站), is different from other websites which only provide stories about other people. MySpace is a place that allows you to broadcast your own stories and personal information to as many people as you like. Started two years ago, it is a big source of information for and about American kids. Teenagers and their parents feel very differently about it. Teens are rushing to join the site, not sharing their parents’ worries. It signals yet another generation gap in the digital era(时代). For teenagers, it is much easier to keep in touch with their friends. They will often list their surnames, birthdays, after-school jobs, school clubs, hobbies and other personal information. “MySpace is an easy way to reach just about everyone. I don’t have all the phone numbers of my friends. But if I want to get in touch with one of them, I could just leave him a message on MySpace,” said Abby Van Wassen. She is a 16-year-old student at Woodland Hills High of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Parents, on the other hand, are seriously concerned about the security problems of MySpace. “Every time we hold a parents meeting, the first question is always about MySpace,” said Kent Gates, who travels the country doing Internet safety seminars (研讨会). The National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children has received at least 288 MySpace-related complaints, according to Mary Beth Buchanan, a lawyer in Pittsburgh. “Your profile(简介)on My space show all your personal information to anyone on the Web. And MySpace even lists this information by birthplace and age. It’s like a free checklist for trouble-makers and it endangers children, ” Buchanan said.
  68. Form the passage, we can learn that MySpace . A. brings about the generation gap B. is very careful about people’s personal information C. encourages you to list your personal information D. lists the telephone numbers of your friends
  69. Why are some parents against MySpace?
A. Because they think MySpace has a bad influence on their children. B. Because they don’t want to pay so much money for MySpace. C. Because it takes up too much of their children’s spare time. D. Because trouble-makers can easily approach their children through the site.
  70. What can we infer from “Every time we hold a parents meeting, the first question is always about MySpace ”? A. MySpace has become a top issue that troubles parents. B. MySpace often holds parents meetings. C. MySpace is quite popular with parents. D. Parents have lots of questions about the website.
