When you are curious about something, and want to know more about it, you can use the way of asking questions. Asking questions is the first step to make discoveries and find interesting answers. The steps below can guide you during the research. Step 1 On a note card or a piece of paper, write down the subject that you are interested in. Just get the main idea down. For example, you might write: Discover more about dinosaurs. Step 2 Stop and think for a moment about what you already know about your subject. List what you already know like the sentences below: 1. Dinosaurs lived long before human beings appeared. 2. Dinosaurs lived on the earth for more than 150 million years. 3. Some dinosaurs fed on plants, some on meat. Step 3 What can you do with what you want to learn? By asking questions. On your paper, start writing down questions about the dinosaurs as you think of them: 1. What?s the best weather for dinosaurs to live in? 2. How many kinds of dinosaurs are there? 3. Have dinosaurs really disappeared? Step 4 Armed with your list of questions, you can now go to the nearest library or computer to begin your research. As you learn more about your subject, you’ll probably discover some new questions. For example, you might discover that dinosaurs disappeared about 65 million years ago. Why? What happened? Asking new questions can help you research your subject more widely. The next time you find something interesting to research, take time to organize your thinking by asking good questions. And remember—learning more always bring more questions. 61. When you do some research, you should take the following steps: ______. ①list what you want to know ②choose a research subject ③list what you already know ④discover new problems A．①④③② B．②③①④ C．③②④① D．④③①② 62. What does the underlined sentence “Armed with your list of questions” mean? A．Putting your list of questions under your arm. B．Discussing your questions with your classmates. C．Writing down your list of questions. D．Taking your list of questions with you. 63. According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE? A．You can find all the answers online.
B．Learn more, and you?ll have no questions. C．During the research, you may keep finding new questions. D．Asking questions is the only way for research. 64. The best title for this passage is ______. A．Discovering Dinosaurs B．Asking Good Questions C．Finding Subjects D．Having Interesting Answers B When Paul was a boy growing up in Utah, he happened to live near a copper smelter(炼铜厂), and the chemicals that poured out had made a wasteland out of what used to be a beautiful forest. One day a young visitor looked at this wasteland and called it an awful area. Paul knocked him down. From then on, something happened inside him. Years later Paul was back in the area, and he went to the smelter office. He asked if they had any plans or if they would let him try to bring the trees back. The answer from that big industry was “No.” Paul then went to college to study the science of plants. Unfortunately, his teachers said there weren't any birds or squirrels to spread the seeds. It would be a waste of his life to try to do it. Everyone knew that, he was told. Even if he was knowledgeable as he had expected, he wouldn?t get his idea accepted. Paul later got married and had some kids. But his dream would not die. And then one night he did what he could with what he had. As Samuel Johnson wrote, “It is common to overlook what is near by keeping the eye fixed on something remote. Attainable good is often ignored by minds busied in wide ranges.” Under the cover of darkness, he went secretly into the wasteland and started planting. And every week, he made his secret journey into the wasteland and planted trees and grass. For fifteen years he did this against the plain common sense. Slowly rabbits appeared. Later, as there was legal(法律上的) pressure to clean up the environment, the company actually hired Paul to do what he was already doing. Now the place is fourteen thousand acres of trees and grass and bushes, and Paul has received almost every environmental award Utah has. It took him until his hair turned white, but he managed to keep that impossible vow he made to himself as a child. 65. When Paul was a boy, ______. A. he had decided never to leave his hometown B. the economy of Utah depended wholly on the copper smelter C. no laws were made to protect the environment against pollution D. he had determined to stop the copper smelter polluting the area 66. What does the underlined phrase “the plain common sense” probably refer to? A. That it was impossible for trees to grow on the wasteland.
B. That his normal work and life would be greatly affected. C. That no one would like to join him in the efforts. D. That he had to keep everything he did secret. 67. Why did Paul go to college to study the science of plants? A. He wanted to find out the best way to save the area himself. B. He was interested in planting trees since he was young. C. He wanted to get more knowledgeable people to help him. D. He thought his knowledge would make his advice more persuasive. 68. The message of the passage is that ______ A. action speaks louder than words B. perseverance(坚持不懈) will work wonders C. God helps those who help themselves D. many hands make light work C BUKHANNON, West Virginia—Two rescue teams slowly moved along a two-mile path on Monday night to the site of a coal mine explosion that trapped 13 miners, who had not been heard from since the early morning accident. Meanwhile, at a nearby church, more than 250 family members and friends gathered, waiting for updates（最新报道）on the rescuers? progress. The miners were trapped at about 6:30 and many families weren?t informed of the accident until about 10 a.m-more than three hours after it happened. “It?s very upsetting, but you?ve got to be patient, I guess,” said John Helms, whose brother, Terry, was trapped in the mine. The trapped miners were about 260 feet underground and about 10,000 feet from the Sago Mine?s entrance, said Roger Nicholson, general counsel from International Coal Group. At a late night news conference, Nicholson said one team had advanced about 4,800 feet in the four hours since entering the mine just before 6 p.m. Another team entered the mine about 30 minutes later. He said the crew was very experienced, with some members having worked underground for 30 to 35 years. The miners were equipped with about one hour of breathable oxygen each. The company has not released the names of the miners. The teams test the air about every 500 feet, and have to disconnect (remove) the power to the phones they use to communicate with the surface before doing that. “We don?t want to be energizing anything if it?s in an atmosphere with burnable gases,” Kips said. The cause of the explosion was not immediately known. High levels of carbon monoxide were detected shortly after the explosion, which
delayed rescue efforts, but those levels have since subsided（减退）, authorities said. 69. According to the passage, we can infer that ______. A. all the miners who were trapped underground were still alive B. communication with the trapped miners was cut off C. the two rescue teams entered the mine at the same time D. the rescue started as soon as the accident happened 70. If the first team advanced at an average speed, they could dig about ______ per hour. A. 1,000 feet B. 2,400 feet C. 1,200 feet D. 4,800 feet

VII. 阅读下面的短文，根据短文后的要求答题（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） Our world is full of signs and symbols. Most of the time we don?t really need to think about them. Good examples of these “invisible” symbols are the ones used for “Play”, “Fast Forward”, and “Rewind”. We find them on everything from old tape players to DVD players, remote controls, and computer keyboards. They are so familiar that we don?t really need to pay attention to them anymore. We certainly never think about who first designed them, or when. A more recent, but increasingly familiar kind of symbol is the “emoticon”, sometimes called the “smiley”. You might not be familiar with the names, but you?ve certainly seen them many times. Here, for example, is the emoticon for happy: :-) This is the one for sad: :-( “Emoticon” is a combination of two words, “emotion” and “icon”. An icon was originally a religious picture but has now more commonly come to mean a symbol used on the computer. Emoticons are used to show feelings that are often difficult to express when writing an email or sending a text message. Modern emoticons are thought to have been invented by a computer scientist called Scott Fahlman in 1982. He got so tired of people thinking that he was serious when he was joking that he suggested marking all jokes like this: :-). The idea took off rapidly and, as the Internet became more popular, so did emoticons. The original two or three have now become hundreds, collected in “dictionaries” or on websites. And, although most emoticons still try to imitate an expression of the human face, some, like/o (a man scratching head, meaning confusion), or o/ (a man waving goodbye), show an action. 101.

Explain the underlined phrase “ took off” in English . (No more than 5 words) _________________________________________________________________
