A. story B. novel C. letter D. advertisement B Last week the manager of an old jeweller's shop received a letter marked “personal", so of course his secretary gave it to him unopened. As he was very busy, the letter lay on his desk till tea-time. Then he opened it and a £10 note fell out onto his desk. With the note was a short letter. This is what it said: Dear sir, In 1935 I got engaged. But unfortunately at that time there was a lot of unemployment and I lost my job. I was six months without a job and then I got work again. But of course was very short of money. I came to your shop to buy a wedding ring. The assistant brought some rings for me to look at, but she was called away for a moment, and I put one of the rings in my pocket. When she came back, I said I did not know the size of my girl-friend's finger. So I left the shop without buying a ring. My wife died a short while ago and the fact that I never paid for her ring has been on my conscience (良心) all these years. At the time the ring cost £2 so I reckon (估计) that is about £10 at today's price. And I am sending you that amount. Yours truly, A customer “Well, well, well, " said the manager, “life is full of surprises!"

B. She was short of money. C. She was called away while serving the customer. D. She put one of the rings in her pocket. C Chemists have been studying why people cry. They say the body produces two kinds of tears. One kind cleans out the eye if it gets dirt in it. But when people cry because of their feelings, these tears have poison chemicals in them. The body is getting rid of chemicals produced by strong feelings. In the United States men have heart diseases more often than women do. Doctors say heart disease and some other diseases are related (有关的) to the pressures (压力) of living and working in a modern society. Perhaps men suffer more from these diseases because they do not cry enough. And it is possible that as more and, more women work outside the home, they will also suffer from more pressure. Then everyone will need to cry more.
  55. Which of the following is happening now? A. More men than women are now crying B. More women are now working outside their homes C. Heart diseases are on the rise D. The poison found in tears is killing more and more people
  56.What is living in a modern society doing to some people ? A. Making them cry B. Driving them mad C. Making them produce chemicals D. Giving them heart diseases
  57. Why do people cry? A. To get red of poisonous substances produced by strong feelings B. Because they have to work outside their homes C. Because they don't know how to prevent heart diseases D. For no reason at all D Most Americans get what money they have from their work; that is, they earn an income from wages or salaries. The richest Americans, however, get most of their money from what they own?their stock, bonds, real estate, and other forms of property, or wealth. Although there are few accurate statistics to go by, wealth in American society appears to be concentrated in very few hands. More than 20 percent of everything that can be privately owned is held by less than one percent of the adult population and more than 75 percent of all wealth is owned by 20 percent of American adults. The plain fact is that most Americans
have on wealth at all aside from their homes, automobiles, and a small amount of savings. Income in the Unites States is not as highly concentrated as wealth. In 1917 the richest 10 percent of American families received
  26.1 percent of all income, while the poorest 10 percent received 17 percent, mainly from Social Security and other government payments. The most striking aspect of income distrib
