Passage A Last year I went to Nepal (尼泊尔) for three months to work in a hospital. I think it's important to see as much of a country as you can, but it is difficult to travel around Nepal. The hospital let me have a few days’ holiday, so I decided to go into the jungle (丛林) and I asked a Nepalese guide, Kamal Rai, to go with me. We started our trip at six in the morning with two elephants carrying our equipment. It was hot, but Kamal made me wear shoes and trousers to protect me from snakes. In the jungle there was a lot of wildlife, but we were trying to find big cats, especially tigers. We climbed onto the elephants’ backs to see better, but it is unusual to find tigers in the afternoon because they sleep in the daytime. Then, in the distance, we saw a tiger, and Kamal told me to be very quiet. We moved nearer and found a dead deer. This was the tiger’s lunch! I started to feel very frightened. We heard the tiger a second before we saw it. It jumped out suddenly, five hundred kilos plus and four meters long. It grabbed (咬住) Kamal's leg between its teeth, but I succeeded (成功) in pulling Kamal away. One of our elephants ran at the tiger and made it go back into the grass, so we quickly escaped to let the tiger eat its lunch. That night it was impossible to sleep.
  1. The writer of the passage must be . A. a Nepalese doctor B. a foreign tourist C. a Nepalese traveler D. a foreign doctor
  2. What made the writer suddenly start to feel very frightened? A. He heard the noise of the tiger. C. He realized that they were in danger.

B. He saw the tiger in the distance. D. He knew that the tiger was in danger.

  3. What was unusual about the tiger? A. It hunted a deer on a hot afternoon.B. It was 500 kilos plus and four meters long. C. It was afraid of an elephant. D. It almost killed the Nepalese guide. Passage B From Monday until Friday most people are busy working or studying, but in the evenings and on weekends they are free to relax (放松) and enjoy themselves. Some watch TV or go to the movies; others take part in sports. It depends on individual interests. There are many different ways to spend our spare time. Almost everyone has some kinds of hobbies. It may be anything from collecting stamps to making model airplanes. Some hobbies are very expensive, but others don’t cost anything at all. Some collections are worth a lot of money; others are valuable only to their owners. I know a man who has a coin collection worth several thousand dollars. A short time ago he bought a rare (稀有的) fifty?cent piece worth S|250! He was very happy about his buying and thought the price was reasonable (合理的). On the other hand, my youngest brother collects matchboxes. He has almost 600 of them but I doubt (怀疑) if they are worth any money. However, to my brother they are very valuable. Nothing makes him happier than to find a new matchbox for his collection. That’s what a hobby means, I guess. It is something we like to do in our spare time simply for the fun of it. The value in dollars is not important, but the pleasure it gives us is.

We collect a subject in our spare time simply for the fun of it. C. The pleasure that a hobby can give is important. D. To have a hobby means to spend a lot of money. Passage C Without proper planning, tourism can cause problems. For example, too many tourists can crowd public places that were also enjoyed by the inhabitants of a country. If tourists create too much traffic, the inhabitants will become unhappy. They begin to dislike tourists and to treat them impolitely. They forget how much tourism can help a country's economy . It is important to think about the people of a destination country and how tourism affects them. Tourism should help a country keep the customs and beauty that attract tourists. Tourism should also advance the well being of local inhabitants. Too much tourism can be a problem. If tourism grows too quickly, people must

leave other jobs to work in the tourism industry. This means that other parts of the country’s economy will suffer. On the other hand, if there is not enough tourism, people will lose jobs.① Businesses will also lose money. It costs a great deal of money to build large hotels, airports, broad roads, and other things needed by places of interest. For example, a five star tourism hotel needs as much as 50 thousand dollars per room to build. If this room is not used most of the time, the owners of the hotel will lose money. Building a hotel is just a beginning. There must be many support facilities (支 撑设施) as well, including roads to get to the hotel, electricity, and sewers to handle waste and water. All of these support facilities cost money. If they are not used because there are not enough tourists, jobs and money are lost.
  1. Which of the following has most probably been discussed in the part that goes before this passage? A. It is very important to develop tourism. B. Building roads and hotels is necessary. C. Support facilities are highly important. D. Planning is very important to tourism.
  2. Too much tourism can cause all these problems EXCEPT . A. a bad effect on other industries B. a change of tourists’customs D. pressure on traffic
C. over crowdedness of places of interest
  3.Not enough tourism can lead to .
A. an increase of unemployment B. a decrease in tourist attractions C. the higher cost of support facilities D. a rise in price and a fall in pay
