Foreign visitors are often puzzled in Japan because most streets there don’t have names. In Japan, people use landmarks in their directions instead of street names. For example, the Japanese will say to travelers, “Go straight down to the corner. Turn left at the big hotel and go past a fruit market. The post office is across from the bus stop.” In the countryside of the American Midwest, usually there are not many landmarks. There are no mountains, so the land is very flat 平坦的) In many places there are no towns or buildings within ( . miles. Instead of landmarks, people will tell you directions and distance. In Kansas or Iowa, for example, people will say, “Go north two miles. Turn east, and then go another mile.” People in Los Angeles, California, have no idea of distance on the map: They measure distance by means of time, not miles. “How far away is the post office?” you ask. “Oh,” they answer, “It’s about five minutes from here.” You say, “Yes, but how many miles away is it?” They don’t know. People in Greece sometimes do not even try to give directions because visitors seldom understand the Greek language. Instead of giving you the direction, a Greek will often say, “Follow me.” Then he’ll lead you through the streets of the city to the post office. Sometimes a person doesn’t know the answer to your question. What happens in this situation? A New Yorker might say, “Sorry, I have no idea.” But in Yucatan, Mexico, no one answers, “I don’t know.” People in Yucatan think that “I don’t know” is impolite. They usually give an answer, often a wrong one. A visitor can get very, very lost in Yucatan!
One thing will help you everywhere ? in Japan, in the United States, in Greece, in Mexico, or in any other place. You might not understand a person’s words, but maybe you can understand his body language. He or she will usually turn and then point in the correct direction. Go in that direction, and you may find the post office!
  59. The passage mainly tells us that . A. never carry a map for travel B. there are not many landmarks in the American Midwest C. there are different ways to give directions in different parts of the world D. New Yorkers often say, “I have no idea,” but people in Yucatan, Mexico, never say this.
  60. “In Japan, people use landmarks in their directions.” The word “landmarks” means . A. building names B. street names C. hotels, markets and bus stops D. buildings or places which are easily recognized
  61. In which place do people tell distance by means of time? A. Japan B. American Midwest C. Los Angeles, California D. Greece
  62. Which of the following is wrong? A. Travelers can learn about people’s customs(风俗) by asking questions about directions. B. A person’s body language can help you understand directions. C. People in some places give directions in miles, but people in other places give directions by means of time. D. People in different places always give directions in the same way: they use street names. D Of all the websites, one that has attracted attention recently is myspace. corn. Most of this attention has come from the media and tells ever y reason why the website should be shut down.The threat of internet predators (掠夺者) is indeed a tough reality, but shutting down the site is not the answer.If myspace.corn.were shut down, another site would quickly take its place.Therefore, the right way is to teach teens how to use the site safely and educate them about who may be predators and how to avoid them. The key to staying safe on the Internet is to make sure that your profile (个人资料) secure. is The simplest way is to change the privacy setting on your profile to "private", which protects your information so that only the people on your friend list can view it.Although this is effective , it is not perfect.Predators can find ways to view your profile if they really want to, whether through
hacking in or figuring out their way onto your friend list.Thus, you should never post too much personal information.Some people actually post their home and school addresses, date of birth, and other personal information, often letting predators know exactly where th ey will be and when.The safest information is your first name and province.Anything more is basically inviting a predator into your life. Another big issue is photos.I suggest completely skip ping photos and never posting a photo of a friend online without asking permission. Most importantly, never, under any circumstances, agree to a real - life meeting with anyone you meet online.No matter how well you think you know this person, there are no guarantees that they have told the truth.But you could feel free to chat with people you meet on the site, but just remember that not everyone is who they say they are.Hopefully, the next time you edit your profile, you' 11 be more informed about the dangers of Internet predators and take the steps to defend yourself.
  63. Kids can avoid web predators successfully by A. attracting more public attention B. shutting down the website "myspace.corn" C. showing the kids ways to try other sites D. recognizing and getting away from them
  64. The safest basic personal information that you can share online is A. your home address and birthday B. your school address and your first name C. your first name and province D. your province and cell phone number
  65. We can learn from the passage that . A. not everybody you meet online is honest and reliable B. it is not acceptable to post a photo of a friend online C. it is not safe chatting with grown - ups on the website D. only you and your friends can view your personal profile
  66. What could be the best title of this passage? A. Web Safety for Teens. B. Personal Safety. C. Web Hackers in the Past. D. Predators’ Tricks. E Scientists who try to predict earthquakes have gotten some new helpers recently?animals. That’s right, animals. Scientists have begun to understand what farmers have known for thousands of years. Animals often seem to know in advance that an earthquake is coming, and they show their fear 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 cage. All of this unusual behavior, as well as physical changes in the earth, warned Chinese scientists of the coming quake. They moved people away from the danger zone and saved thousands of lives. One task for scientists today is to learn exactly which types of animal behavior predict quakes. It’s not an easy job. First of all not every animal reacts 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 enclosure. The Australian horse next to him, however, remained perfectly calm. It’s also difficult at times to tell the difference between normal animal restlessness and “earthquake nerves”. A zoo keeper once called earthquake researchers to say that his cougar 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 sense tiny changes in air pressure, gravity, or the magnetism of Earth. This extra sense probably helps animals predict quakes. A good example of this occurred with a group of dogs. They were shut in an area that was being shaken by a series of tiny earthquakes. (Several small quakes often come before or after a large one.) Before each quake a low booming sound was heard. Each boom caused the dogs to bark wildly. Then the dogs began to bark during a silent period. A scientist who was recording quakes looked at his machine. It was acting as though there were a loud noise too. The scientist realized that the dogs had reacted to a booming noise. They also sensed the tiny quake that followed it. The machine recorded both, though humans felt and heard nothing. In this case there was a machine to monitor what the dogs were sensing. Many times, however, our machines record nothing extraordinary, even though animals know a quake is coming. The animals might be sensing something we measure but do not recognize as a warning. Discovering what animals sense, and learning how they know it is a danger signal, is a job for future scientists.
  67. Through the passage the writer hopes to explore . A. why animals send a danger signal before an earthquake B. how animals know when an earthquake is coming C. why animals not men have good sense of danger D. how much animals know about an earthquake
  68. During an earthquake in China in 1975, . A. chickens refused to go out of their cage B. snakes were frozen to death in their caves
C. snakes awoke from their winter sleep earlier D. cows broke their halters and escaped from their sheds
  69. Which of the following is one of earthquake nerves according to the passage? A. An Arabian horse tried to escape from his enclosure. B. A cougar had an upset stomach unexpectedly. C. An Australian horse was perfectly calm. D. A cat acted very strangely in a zoo.
  70. The scientists did an experiment with a group of dogs to . A. find out that the machine could record unusual happenings B. compare the reactions of animals and those of humans C. prove that animals could sense more than humans D. find out what exact warnings animals sent
