Passage 1 After a busy day of work and play, the body needs to rest. Sleep is necessary for good health. During this time, the body recovers from the activities of the previous day. The rest that you get while sleeping enables your body to prepare itself for the next day. There are four levels of sleep, each being a little deeper than the one before. As you sleep, your muscles relax little by little. Your heart beats more slowly, and your brain slows down. After you reach the fourth level, your body shifts back and forth from one level of sleep to the other. Although your mind slows down, from time to time you will dream. Scientists who study sleep state that when dreaming occurs, your eyeballs begin to move more quickly (although your eyelids are closed). This stage of sleep is called REM, which stands for rapid eye movement. If you have trouble falling asleep, some people recommend breathing very slowly and very deeply. Other people believe that drinking warm milk will help make you drowsy. There is also an old suggestion. Other people believed that drinking warm milk will help make you drowsy. There is also an old suggestion that counting sheep will put you to sleep! (20

But people in the Australian outback can’t get to a doctor quickly. The nearest doctor is sometimes hundreds of kilometers away so they have to call him on a two-way radio. This special doctor is called the “flying doctor”. He visits sick people by plane. When someone is very sick, the doctor has to fly to the person’s home. His plane lands on a flat piece of ground near the person’s house. Sometimes the doctor has to take the patient to hospital. Flying doctors take about 8,600 people to hospital each year. However, most of the time the person isn’t very sick, and the doctor doesn’t have to visit. He can give advice on the radio from the office at the flying doctor centre. He can tell the patient to use some medicine from a special medicine chest. There is one of these chests in every home in the outback. Each bottle, tube and packet in the chest has a number. The doctor often says something like this: “Take two tablets from bottle number 5 every four hours.” A man called John Flynn started the Royal Flying Doctor Service in 19

The article does not say 【答案】 D D A D B Passage 3 One silly question I simply can’t stand is “How do you feel”. Usually the question is asked of a man in actiona man on the go, walking along the street, or busily working at his desk. So what do you expect him to say? He’ll probably say, “Fine, I’m all right.” But “You’ve put a bug in his ear”, maybe now he’s not sure. If you are a good friend, you may have seen something in his face, or his walk, that he did not realize that morning. It starts him worrying a little. First thing you know, he looks in a mirror to see if everything is all right, while you go merrily on your way asking someone else, “How do you feel?” Every question has its time and place. It’s perfectly acceptable, for instance, to ask “How do you feel?” if you’re visiting a close friend in the hospital. But if the fellow is walking on both legs, hurrying to make a train, or sitting at his desk working, it’s no time to ask him that silly question. When George Bernard Shaw, the famous writer of plays was in his eighties, someone asked him “How do you feel?” Shaw put him in his place. “When you reach my age”, he said, “either you feel all right or you’re dead.”

  4.George Bernard Shaw’s reply in the passage shows his . A. cheerfulness B. cleverness C. ability D. politeness
  5.“You’ve put a bug in his ear” means that you’ve . A. made him laugh B. shown concern for him C. made fun of him D. given him some kind of warning 【答案】D D C B D Passage 4 Acting is such an over-crowed profession that the only advice that should be given to a young person thinking of going on the stage is “Don’t!” But it is useless to try to discourage someone who feels that he must act, although the chances of his becoming famous are slim. The normal way to begin is to go to a drama school. Usually only students who show promise and talent are accepted, and the course lasts two years. Then the young actor or actress takes up work with a theatrical company 剧团)usually as an assistant stage manager. This means ( , doing everything that there is to do in the theatre and occasionally acting in very small parts. It is very hard work indeed, the hours are long and the salary is tiny. Of course, some people have remarkable chances which lead to fame and success without this long and hard training. Connie Pratt, for example, was just an ordinary girl working in a bicycle factory. A film producer happened to catch sight of her one morning waiting at a bus stop, as he drove past in his car. He stopped and got out to speak to the girl. He asked if she would like to go to the film studio to do a test, and she thought he was joking. Then she got angry and said she would call the police. It took the producer twenty minutes to convince
Connie that he was serious. The test was successful. And within a few weeks she was playing the leading part opposite one of the most famous actors of the day. But chances like this happen once in a blue moon!

  2.For someone who feels he must act, it is very likely that . A. he will become a film star at long last B. he will become a stage manager C. he will be well paid D. he will end up without any success
  3.The film producer found Connie Pratt one morning when she was . A. at work in a bicycle factory B. driving past him in her car C. going to a film studio D. waiting for a bus
  4.A few weeks after the test, Connie Pratt found herself . A. the most famous actress of the world B. playing the leading female role in a play C. as famous as the greatest actor of the world D. no less famous than the leading actor of the day
  5.The concluding sentence “chances like this happen once in a blue moon” means . A. this is something which happens once in a while B. this is a highly profitable chance C. this is something highly possible D. this is a very rare chance 【答案】A D D B D Passage 5 Although the United States covers so much land and the land produces far more food than the present population needs, its people are by now almost entirely an urban society. Less than a tenth of the people are engaged in agriculture and forestry (林业) and most of the rest live in or around towns, small and large. Here the , traditional picture is changing: every small town may still be very like other small towns, and the typical small town may represent widely accepted view of the country, but most Americans do not live in small towns any more, half the population now lives in some thirty metropolitan areas (large cities with their suburbs) of more than an million people each, a larger proportion than in Germany or England, let alone France. The statistics(统计)of urban and rural population should be treated with caution because so many people who live in areas classified as rural travel by car to work in nearby town each day. As the rush to live out of town continues, rural areas within reach of towns are gradually filled with houses, so that it is hard to say at what moment a piece of country becomes a suburb. But more and more the typical Americans live in metropolitan rather than a small town environment. (225 words)

  2.Which of the following four countries has the smallest proportion of people living in metropolitan areas? . A. United States B. Germany C. France D. England
  3.What’s the meaning of the word “metropolitan” in the middle of the passage? . A. Of a large city with its suburbs B. Of small and large towns C. Of urban areas D. Of rural areas
  4.According to the passage, what can we learn about small towns in the Untied States? . A. Most small towns become gradually crowded B. Small towns are still similar to each other C. As the traditional picture is changing, towns are different D. Small towns are turning into large cities
  5.Why is it hard to say when a piece of country becomes a suburb? Because . A. they are the same B. the rush takes place too quickly C. the process is gradual D. more and more Americans live in metropolitan areas 【答案】C C A B C
