(A) “Soon, you’re going to have to move out!” cried my neighbour upon seeing the largest tomato plant known to mankind, or at least known in my neighbourhood. One tiny 9-inch plant, bought for $
  1.25 in the spring, has already taken over much of my rose bed, covering much of other plants, and is well on its way to the front door. Roses require a good deal of care, and if it weren’t for the pleasure they give, it wouldn’t be worth the work. As it is, I have a garden full of sweet-smelling roses for most of the year. Bushes must be pruned (剪枝) early spring, leaving ugly woody branches until the new growth appears in a few weeks later. It was the space available in the garden that led me into planting just one little tomato plant. A big mistake. Soil conditions made just perfect for roses turn out to be even more perfect for tomatoes. The daily watering coupled with full sun and regular fertilizing have turned the little plant into a tall bush. The cage I placed around it as the plant grew has long disappeared under the thick leaves. Now the task I face in harvesting the fruit is twofold: First, I have to find the red ones among the leaves, which means I almost have to stand on my head, and once found I have to reach down and under, pick the tomatoes and withdraw (缩回) full fist without dropping the prize so dearly my won. I found two full-blown white roses completely hidden as I picked tomatoes in June. But they were weak and the leaves already turned yellow for lack of light. Here I am faced with a painful small decision: To tear up a wonderful and productive tomato plant that offers up between ten and twenty ripe sweet tomatoes each day or say goodbye to several expensive and treasured roses. Like Scarlet in Gone with the Wind, I’ll think about that tomorrow.
  1. The writer decided to plant the tomato just because . A. it cost little C. the space left could be used B. the soil conditions were proper D. the roses were growing too fast

  2. What are the requirements for the healthy growth of rose? A. Enough care and right soil conditions. C. Tomato plants grown alongside. B. Frequent pruning and fertilizing. D. Cages placed around the roots.

  3. By saying “the prize so dearly won” in paragraph 5, the writer wants to . A. show the difficulty in picking the tomatoes C. express her liking for the roses B. show the hardship of growing the roses D. express her care for the tomatoes

  4. One right thing described in the passage is that . A. the roses cost the writer little money B. the writer has a daily harvest of tomatoes C. someone will help the writer make the decision D. the writer can now enjoy both the roses and tomatoes
  5. What seems to be the biggest challenge for the writer? A. How to pick the tomatoes. C. How to care the roses. (B) Matt grows the best vegetables in the village. He grows fruit too?big, sweet apples and oranges. And what else? Well, the biggest and the prettiest flowers. Things grow in Matt’s garden all through the year. He cuts some flowers for his sitting-room table; and of course, he eats some fruit and vegetables. But he sells everything else in the market. Matt is not a poor man. He owns a few other gardens; but he does not have any friends. You might ask, “What is that? Why doesn’t he have friends?” I will tell you. People do not understand him. And they do not understand his garden. “Why not?” you will ask. “It’s a very good garden, isn’t it?” It is a wonderful garden. Matt plants things in spring, summer, autumn and winter. After that he does very little work. He sits in the garden with his small radio. And everything grows. People ask, “How does Matt grow these wonderful things? He waters the plants sometimes, but he doesn’t do anything else. He just sits under an orange tree with his radio. He listens to music nearly all day!” And that is all quite true. People cannot understand it, so they don’t like it very much. Matt likes music. But what about the garden? Who does the work? I will tell you another true thing: the music does the work. All plants love music, and Matt knows that. Do you want big vegetables and the loveliest flowers? Well, just give your plants a lot of music.
