If you are not British or a citizen of the European Community, you must fill out a special form before your passport is examined. This form is called a landing card and should be given to you during the flight to London. After landing, follow the ARRIVALS signs. Make sure you are in the right channel when you reach Passport Control. There is one channel for holders of European Community passports, and a second channel marked "Other Passports". Baggage Reclaim ( 行礼领取 ) Area. After passing through Passport Control, follow the signs to the Baggage Reclaim Area.

There is a choice of two channels, Green and Red. If you have nothing to declare, go through the Green Channel.

B Sharks have lived in the oceans for over 450 million years, long before dinosaurs appeared. There are now about 360 species of sharks, whose size, behavior, and other characteristics differ widely. Sharks range in size from the 0.1-meter ( 6-inch) long dwarf-dog shark to the 18-meter ( 60-foot) long whale shark---the world’s biggest fish. The whale shark, like two other large shark species---the barking shark and the megamouth shark---are harmless to people because they feed on plants and small aquatic animals. Sharks have extremely sensitive sense organs (器官). Some sharks can detect (发现，察觉) the scent of decaying fish or blood even when it is diluted to only one part per million parts of seawater. They can probably hear underwater sounds that originate as far as 3 kilometers (2 miles) away and can tell the direction from which underwater sounds are coming. Sharks are key predators (食肉动物) in the world’s oceans, helping control the numbers of many other ocean predators. Without sharks, the oceans would be overcrowded with dead and dying fish. Every year, we catch and kill over 100 million sharks, mostly for food and for their fins. Dried shark fins are used to make shark fin soup, which sells for as much as $ 50 a bowl in fine Hong Kong restaurants. Other sharks are killed for sport and out of fear. Sharks are vulnerable (易遭攻击 的) to overfishing because it takes most species 10 to 15 years to begin reproducing and they produce only a few offspring. Influenced by movies and popular novels, most people see sharks as people-eating monsters. This is far from the truth. Every year, a few types of shark injure about 100 people world-wide and kill about 25. Most attacks are by great white sharks, which often feed on sea lions and other marine mammals. They sometimes mistake human swimmers for their normal prey, especially if they are wearing black wet suits. If you are a typical ocean-goer, your chances of being killed by an unprovoked attack by a shark are about 1 in 100 million. You are more likely to be killed by a pig than a shark and thousands of times more likely to get killed when you drive a car. Sharks help save human lives. In addition to providing people with food, they are helping us
learn how to fight cancer, bacteria, and viruses. Sharks are very healthy and have aging processes similar to ours. Their highly effective immune (免疫的) system allows wounds to heal quickly without becoming infected, and their blood is being studied in connection with AIDS research. Sharks are among the few animals in the world that almost never get cancer and eye cataracts (白内障). Understanding why can help us improve human health. Chemicals extracted (提取) from shark cartilage have killed cancerous tumors in laboratory animals, research that someday could help prolong your life, Sharks are needed in the world’s ocean ecosystems (生态系统). Although they don't need us, we need them. We are much more dangerous to sharks than they are to us. For every shark that bites a person, we kill one million sharks. 55. Which statement best expresses the main idea of the article? A. There are many different species of sharks, but only a few of them are dangerous to humans. B. Sharks play an important role in the ocean ecosystem and they are a valuable resource for humans. C. Sharks can help save human lives. D. Sharks have extremely sensitive sense organs which can be used to save human lives. 56. Which question is NOT answered in the article? A. How long does a shark live in the ocean? each year? C. Why are sharks important in medical research? in the ocean? 57. It can be inferred from the passage that _____________. A. movies have given people the wrong impression of sharks B. most sharks are dangerous to humans wearing black D. human beings are friends with sharks. C. sharks will attack anyone who is D. How many species of sharks are there B. How many people are killed by sharks
C My six-year-old granddaughter stared at me as if she were seeing me for the first time. “Grandma, you are an antique (古董),” she said. “You are old. Antiques are old. You are my antique.” I was not satisfied to let the matter rest there. I took out the Webster’s Dictionary and read the definition (释义) to Jenny. I explained, “An antique is not only old, it’s an object existing since or
belonging to earlier times...a work of art... piece of furniture. Antiques are treasured,” I told Jenny as I put away the dictionary. “They have to be handled carefully because they sometimes are very valuable. In order to qualify as an antique, the object has to be at least 100 years old.” “I’m only 67,” I reminded Jenny. We looked around the house for other antiques, besides me. There was a desk that was handed down from one aunt to another and finally to our family. “It’s very old,” I told Jenny. “I try to keep it polished (擦亮) and I show it off whenever I can. You do that with antiques.” There was a picture on the wall bought at a garage sale. It was dated 1867. “Now that’s an antique,” I said. “Over 100 years old.” Of course it was marked up and scratched (划伤，划破) and not in very good condition. “Sometimes age does that,” I told Jenny. “But the marks are good marks. They show living, being around. That’s something to display with pride. In fact, sometimes, the more an object shows age, the more valuable it can become.” It was important that I believed this for my own selfworth. Our tour of antiques continued. There was a vase on the floor. It had been in my house for a long time. I was not certain where it came from but I didn’t buy it new. One thing about antiques, I explained to Jenny, was that they usually had a story. They’d been in one home and then another, handed down from one family to another, traveling all over the place. They’d lasted through years and years. They could have been thrown away, or ignored, or destroyed, or lost. But instead, they survived. For a moment, Jenny looked thoughtful. “I don’t have any antiques but you,” she said. Then her face brightened. “Could I take you to school for show and tell?” “Only if I fit into your backpack,” I answered. And then Jenny’s antique lifted her up and embraced her in a hug that would last through the years. 58. Grandma read the definition of “antique” to Jenny in order to A. list all the important characteristics of antiques B. tell Jenny the importance of protecting antiques C. change Jenny’s shallow understanding of antiques D. express her disappointment at being called “antique” 59. Which of the following information did grandma convey (表达) to Jenny? A. The desk reminded her of her dear relatives. B. The marks on the picture showed its age and value. C. There was usually a sad story behind an antique. D. She planned to buy a new vase to replace the old one. .
60. By saying “I don’t have any antiques but you” (Paragraph 7), Jenny probably meant A. grandma was a treasure to her C. she had nothing but a few possessions common 61. What can be inferred from the last paragraph? A. Grandma was too old to lift Jenny up. love. B. antiques were rare and valuable
D. grandma and antiques had a lot in
B. Jenny had a strong desire for grandma’s
C. Jenny was too young to know grandma’s humor. D. Grandma had a deep long-lasting love for Jenny.
D There's no need to say it, but there are really more than a few benefits to educational tours. From the word itself, an educational tour is something done to gain knowledge while traveling and touring to some place. It creates opportunities for people to think out of the box and see things and places that aren't usually seen in their normal environment. Educational trips aren't always those that cover far distances. As already said, it is done to gain knowledge and you wouldn't need to go very far to have it. Sometimes, an educational trip could be in your hometown. Historic places and museums are always on top of the lists of the places to go on an educational tour. Educational tours like these would make you know your country better. Your country's history is rich and it is the reason why you came to be. But remember that the history of other states, counties and countries are as important as your own. When you go on a trip to another country, it is advised that you learn their culture first. Different cultures have different understanding and perspective (视角) of different acts, and it could be dangerous or offending if you cannot understand a culture. When you go on an educational tour, it is likely that you would have the opportunity to socialize with other people. Students are encouraged to talk to locals and natives and learn from them, because it is with understanding that students gain knowledge. When students talk with local people, they are gaining insights to their life and their culture. It is said that when in Rome, act and think as the Romans do, and this is a valuable skill that not all people could do. There are millions of people who want to travel, and an educational tour is the perfect time to do so. Traveling opens new doors and opportunities; it always makes you want to learn more. Cultures are many and widely different, and it is a very valuable talent to understand the people of
different cultures. Traveling with groups of other students is safer than traveling alone, and bulk travels like those could also be helpful on the budget. Group of friends could stay at one place and get discounts on the place that you wouldn't get if you are traveling alone. Traveling is fun and more budget-friendly when with other people on an educational tour. Travel abroad for a month. Try and see if you wouldn't miss your own country. Traveling would let you see your own country in a different way. The benefits of an educational tour are all important, but this one creates patriotism in a person. A school isn't a place where they teach you to find the answers; it is a place where one teaches you to find the questions and learn the answers for yourself. Educational tours are valuable this way. They teach you that you are not the only one seeking for questions and that there are other people who are willing to help you on your way too. 62. What is an educational tour according to the passage? A. Something done to gain knowledge while traveling. B. Something done to know more about one's own country while traveling. C. Something done to know more about a foreign country while traveling. D. Something done to seek for more friends while traveling. 63. What are on the top lists of the places to go on an educational tour? A. schools and churches C. places of amusement B. government buildings D. Historical places and museums
64. Which statement is correct according to the passage? A. Educational trips always cover long distances. B. When on educational trips, you seldom have the chance to talk with other people. C. Educational trips are always too short to learn knowledge. D. Learning the culture first is a must before you go on educational trips 65. If you want to go on a cheap and safe educational trip, you'd better_____. A. learn the culture first C. book one in advance B. avoid the top spots D. go with groups of other students
