On one student’s paper was just the one 25 , “It’s so cool.” 26 he thought it was 27 to describe 28 he saw and felt. 29 the story also proves the shortage of words and expressions. 30 “cool,” some people have no words to express the same meaning. So it is 31 to improve our word strength to maintain some 32 . As a popular word, “cool” stands for a kind of special 33 that people can accept easily.

第三部分: 第三部分:阅读理解
阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中,选出最佳选 项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Reading is not the only way to gain knowledge of the work in the past. There is another large reservoir (知识库) which may be called experience, and the college student will find that every craftsman (工匠) has something he can teach and will generally teach gladly to any college student who does not look down upon them . The information from them differs from (不同于) that in textbooks and papers chiefly in that its theoretical ( 理 论 的 ) part -- the explanations of why things happen -- is frequently quite fantastic (神奇的) . But the demonstration (示范) and report of what happens , and how it happens are correct even if the reports are in completely unscientific terms (术语). Presently the college student will learn, in this case also, what to accept and what to reject. One important thing for a college student to remember is that if Aristotle could talk to the fisherman, so can he. Another source of knowledge is the vast store of traditional (传统的) practices handed down from father to son , or mother to daughter, of old country customs (习惯), of folklore (风俗). All this is very difficult for a college student to examine, for much knowledge and personal experience is needed here to separate good plants from wild grass. The college student should learn to realize and remember how much of real value science has found in this wide, confused wilderness and how often scientific discoveries of what had existed in this area long age.
  36.In the last paragraph the phrase "this wide, confused wilderness" refers to . A. personal experience B. wild weeds among good plants C. the information from the parents D. the vast store of traditional practices

  38. From this passage we can infer that . A. we'll invite the craftsman to teach in the college B. schools and books are not the only way to knowledge C. scientific discoveries late based on personal experience D. discoveries and rediscoveries are the most important source of knowledge for a college student
  39. The author advises the college student to . A. be contemptuous to the craftsman B. be patient in helping the craftsman with scientific terms C. learn the craftsman's experience by judging it carefully D. gain the craftsman's experience without rejection
  40. The main idea of this passage is about . A . what to learn from the parents B. how to gain knowledge C. why to learn from craftsman D. how to deal with experience
B
Water, water every where. It lasted almost two months , but in August it ended. It left 45 people dead and $10 billion worth of damage in nine states of USA. It was quite a big Mississippi flood ever recorded. In St.Louis, Missouri, 9,000 people were forced to leave their homes while the city was in danger. St. Louis is just downriver from the points where the Missouri and Illinois Rivers flow into the Mississippi. All three rivers were flooding. But the city escaped the worst when levees (堤) broke upriver. A levee is built of river sand and clay(粘土). Eleven miles of flood walls were built in the late 1960's The walls are 18 inches thick and 5 to 22 feet high. They were designed to protect against a 52-foot flood. In St. Louis, water almost reached the top of flood walls. It measured

In hopes of becoming millionaires, many Filipinos (菲律宾人) began drinking more Pepsi. They hoped to get a bottle cap with the winning number on it. In May 1992, the number was announced: 3
  49. Thousands rushed to get their reward with their bottle caps worth a million pesos (about US $ 40,0
  00) each. But Pepsi wouldn't pay. The company said there was a mistake. The numbers on the caps did not include a security code (保险号), so the caps were not really winners. Up to 800,000 bottle caps had the number 3

In Cardiff I was put to work in furniture department at one of the local stores. It was large, fairly out of date, run ( 经营 ), like its parent company in London, by a group of relatives. Being only a member of the store for a short time, I was in a very fortunate position. The others, particularly the older
members of the store, were naturally asked to produce good sales figures. I was more of an observer. If I made a sale, I was pleased, but if I didn't, I would not be blamed. I was really there to observe and learn, and as I had no interest in making a position in the furniture business, I wasn't too diligent (勤奋) about that either. One salesman in late middle age once expressed his insecurity (不安全感) by scolding me of trying to steal one of his customers (雇客). Nothing could have been further from the truth, but he demanded that I go to the stockroom (货 仓) with him to settle the matter. He was very small and thin, but to my surprise he started dancing about among the carpets and closets working his arms wildly and calling on me to 'put them up'. I couldn't put anything up I was too busy rolling on a four-foot six - inch spring mattress (弹簧垫子) , helpless with laughter. Finally he saw the joke too, and we went off to the members' store for a conciliatory(和解)cup of tea. Several days later, I finally left the store. Thank God!

Driving cars, trucks and motorcycles is an important part of our lives. We do it every day to get to work, to school or to friends' houses. Driving can be very convenient, but can also cause many problems. Waiting in line at a red light, a driver may get impatient and decide just to drive right through it.
