阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项。 A ―Indeed,‖ George Washington wrote in his diary in 1785, ―some kind of fly, or bug, had begun to eat the leaves before I left home.‖ But the father of America was not the father of bug. When Washington wrote that, Englishmen had been referring to insects as bugs for more than a century, and Americans had already created lightning-bug(萤火虫). But the English were soon to stop using the bugs in their language, leaving it to the Americans to call a bug a bug in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The American bug could also be a person, referring to someone who was crazy about a particular activity. Although fan became the usual term, sports fans used to be called racing bugs, baseball bugs, and the like. Or the bug could be a small machine or object, for example, a bug-shaped car. The bug could also be a burglar alarm, from which comes the expression to bug, that is, ―to install (安装) an alarm‖. Now it means a small piece of equipment that people use for listening secretly to others‘ conversation. Since the 1840s, to bug has long meant ―to cheat‖, and since the 1940s it has been annoying. We also know the bug as a flaw in a computer program or other design. That meaning dates back to the time of Thomas Edison. In 1878 he explained bugs as ―little problems and difficulties‖ that required months of study and labor to overcome in developing a successful product. In 1889 it was recorded that Edison ―had been up the two previous nights discovering ?a bug‘ in his invented record player.‖ 56. We learn from Paragraph 1 that _______. A. Americans had difficulty in learning to use the word bug B. George Washington was the first person to call an insect a bug C. the word bug was still popularly used in English in the nineteenth century D. both Englishman and Americans used the word bug in the eighteenth century 57. What does the word ―flaw‖ in the last paragraph probably mean? A. Explanation. B. Finding. C. Origin. D. Fault. 58. The passage is mainly concerned with______. A. the misunderstanding of the word bug B. the development of the word bug C. the public views of the word bug D. the special characteristics of the word bug B When your parents advise you to ―get an education‖ in order to raise your income, they tell you only half the truth. What they really mean is to get just enough education to provide manpower (人力资源) for your society, but not so much that you prove an embarrassment to your society. Get a high school diploma, at least. Without that, you will be occupationally dead unless your name happens to be George Bernard Shaw or Thomas Alva Edison, and you can successfully drop out in grade school. Get a college degree, if possible. With a B.A., you are on the launching pad. But now you have to start to put on the brakes. If you go for a master‘s degree, make sure it is an M.B.A., and the famous law of diminishing (逐渐减少的) returns begins to take effect. Do you know, for instance, that long-haul truck drivers earn more per year than full professors? Yes, the average salary for those truckers was $24,000 while the full professors managed to earn just $23,030.

A doctorate is the highest degree you can get. Except for a few specialized fields such as physics or chemistry where the degree can quickly be turned to industrial or commercial purposes, if you pursue such a degree in any other field, you will face a future which is not bright. There are more doctors unemployed or underemployed in this country than any other part of the world. If you become a doctor in English or history or anthropology or political science or languages or — worst of all — in philosophy, you run the risk of becoming overeducated for our national demands. Not for our needs, mind you, but for our demands. Thousands of doctors are selling shoes, driving cars, waiting on table, and endlessly filling out applications month after month. They may also take a job in some high school or backwater (闭塞) college that pays much less than the doorkeeper earns. You can equate the level of income with the level of education only so far. Far enough, that is, to make you useful to the gross national product, but not so far that nobody can turn much of a profit on you. 59. Many doctors are out of job because ___________. A. they are improperly educated B. they are of little commercial value to their society C. there are fewer jobs in high schools D. they prefer easier jobs that make more money 60. The nation is only interested in people ___________. A. with diplomas B. who specialize in physics and chemistry C. who are valuable to the gross national product D. who receive little education 61. Which of the following is NOT true? A. Bernard Shaw didn‘t finish high school, nor did Edison. B. One must think carefully before pursuing a master‘s degree. C. The higher your education level, the more money you will earn. D. If you are too well-educated, you‘ll be overeducated for society‘s demands. 62. The writer sees education as ____________. A. a means of providing job security and financial security and a means of meeting a country‘s demands for technical workers B. a way to broaden one‘s horizons C. more important than finding a job D. an opportunity that everyone should have C The China Daily newspaper group is looking for Englishlanguage senior business editors, senior copy editors, copy editors and graphic designers to strengthen its international team.

China Daily：An International Team D It‘s a hot day; sweat wets your forehead, and you just want to get back to your air-conditioned home, so of course you‘re going to be angry if the car in front of you doesn‘t move when the traffic light turns green. Honk! Honk! When the temperature rises, so does aggression, and that can lead to large-scale consequences, considering that climate change is turning up the heat over the entire planet. A new study in the journal Science shows that shifts in climate historically have been associated with violent conflict, among both individuals and groups, and that current warming patterns could significantly increase the abundance of human conflict by mid century. Researchers‘ meta-analysis of 60 studies suggests that, consistent with links between conflict and climate shifts in the past, the risk of intergroup conflict around much of the planet would be amplified by 50% in 2050. ―It does change how we think about the value of avoiding climate change,‖ said Solomon Hsiang, lead study author and researcher at the University of California, Berkeley.“It makes us think that avoiding climate change is actually something we should be willing to invest more in.‖“Future population will hopefully also be able to figure out ways to adapt to these climate events, such that the predicted increase in violence will become less likely. Large-scale changes in technologies or political institutions may also alter the risk of violence in the future,‖ Hsiang said. Research on the topic of climate change and violence has been exploding onto the stage in recent years, study authors noted, with 78% of the studies included in this analysis having been published since 2009. Hsiang and colleagues included research on civilization dating back as far as 10, 000 B.C. and across all major world regions. Studies both in laboratory settings and of ―natural‖ human situations have found a connection between heat and violence, the study said. Higher temperatures have been linked to both innocuous hostile behavior, such as horn-honking while driving, and more serious behavior such as domestic violence within households, assault and rape. Police officers are also more likely to use force at higher temperatures, studies have found. Conflict is also associated with extreme rainfall, particularly in societies dependent on agriculture. Higher rates of personal violence are found in low- income settings, where agriculture income suffers

E A recent study of ancient and modern elephant has come up with the unexpected conclusion that the African elephant is divided into two distinct (不同的 )species The discovery was made by researchers at York and Harvard University when they were examining the genetic relationship between the ancient woolly mammoth and mastodon modern elephants—the Asian elephant, African forest elephant, and African savanna elephant. Once they obtained DNA sequences（序列）from two fossils（化石）, mammoths and mastodons, the team compared them with DNA from modern elephants. They found their amazement that modern forest and savanna elephants are as distinct from each other as Asian elephants and mammoths. The scientists used detailed genetic analysis to prove that the African savanna elephant and the African forest elephant have been distinct species for several million years. The divergence of the two species took place around the time of the divergence of Asian elephants and woolly mammoths. This result amazed all the scientists. There has long been debate in the scientific community that the two might be separate species, but this is the most convincing scientific evidence so far that they are indeed different species. Previously, many naturalists believed that African savanna elephants and African forest elephants were two populations of the same species, despite the elephants‘ significant size differences. The savanna elephant has an average shoulder height of 3.5 metres while the forest elephant has an average shoulder double the weight of the forest elephant. But the fact that they look so different does not necessarily mean they are different species. However the proof lay in the analysis of the DNA. Alfred Roca, assistant professor in the Department of Animal Sciences at t he University of Illinois, said, ―We now have to treat the forest and savanna elephants as two difficult units for conservation

purpose. Since 1950, all African elephants have been conserved as one species.

The way to divide African elephants into two units D. The reason for the distinction of African elephants 75. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. Naturalist‘ Beliefs about Elephants B. Amazing Experiments about Elephants C. An Unexpected Finding about Elephants D. A Long Scientific Debate about Elephants

He also commented on the photo: ―The saddest moment in Egypt. I felt too ashamed to show my face.‖ Then this microblog post quickly stirred up heated discussion online. After reading this post, I felt shocked and ashamed for the boy‘s uncivilized behavior. He not only destroyed a historical relic, but also damaged Chinese tourists‘ reputation. I think traveling is a learning experience for tourists and they should learn how to absorb local culture and raise awareness of the importance of cultural relics and proper behavior.
