Ⅳ.Reading Comprehension (
Dalton did not know that his eyesight was somewhat peculiar until one day, in his boyhood when he was watching soldiers. One of the boys with him mentioned the brilliant colour of the red coats of the soldiers, but Dalton said that they looked the colour of grass. All the other boys laughed at him, and this made him think that his eyes differed from theirs. But he was not finally sure of this until he was twenty-six, when his attention was fixed on some flowers. Much later in life he gave this account of what he saw: "I accidentally observed the colour of the flower of the geranium by candle-fight in the autumn of 17
  92. The flower was pink, but it appeared to me almost an exact sky-blue by day. In the candlelight, however, it was astonishingly changed, not having then any blue in it, but being what I called red. I supposed that the change of colour would be equal for all, and I requested some of my friends to observe it. But I was surprised to find that they all agreed that the colour was not much different from what it was by daylight."
In another statement about his colour-blindness Dalton wrote: "Pink appears by daylight to he sky-blue, a little faded(褪色的);by candle-light it has an orange or yellowish appearance...Crimson(深红色)appears a muddy( 泥土般的)blue by day, and crimson wool is much the same as dark blue." The defect(缺陷) in Dalton' s eyesight led to an exchange of letters with one of his friends. Dalton had written: “I boldly state that pinks and roses are light blue by day, and a reddish yellow by night, and that crimson is bluish(带蓝色的)dark colour." His friend made fun of this: “I find by your accounts that you must have very imperfect ideas of the charms which causes beamy in the female. I mean that rosy blush(红润脸色)of the cheeks which you so admire for being light blue. "The letter then continued that if Dalton knew of a girl with such an exceptional complexion(肤色), she would be “A fitter object for show than for a wife".
  1. When Dalton was twenty-six, what was he sure of? A. The soldiers wore the bright red coats B. The red could change to green C. His eyesight was somewhat peculiar D. All other boys looked down upon him
  2. To Dalton, the real colour d the geranium flower was A. pink and red B. blue and red C. blue and yellow D. pink and orange
  3. Dalton seemed to A. be a very seriously near-sighted man B. be an almost blind man C. have a very serious illness in his brain D. have a defect of vision
  4. According to the passage, Dalton couldn't find the difference among A. red, black, green and brown B. red, green, blue and white C. red, yellow, orange and purple D. red, green, yellow and orange
  5. Which of the following is TRUE? A. Dalton could meet a girl with blue cheeks sometimes B. Dalton admires a girl with pink cheeks C. Dalton's friend could meet a girl with cheeks D. Dalton's wife could be a fitter object for show
Christmas was a quiet affair when I was growing up. There were just my pare
