Some people are happy to believe in ESP (超感官知觉)while others are firm disbelievers. Parapsychologists (灵学专家), who lend a certain seriousness to the subject, have 41 four types of ESP: One type called clairvoyance describes the act of being able to obtain knowledge of a person or event without the use of the normal senses; Another type, telepathy, is the 42 by which a person is able to read another person’s thoughts without the use of any of the normal senses; Still another type, psychogenesis, is the ability to43 a physical object just by thinking about it; The last type, precognition, is the term applied when somebody is able to foresee 44 events. Over the years there have been many ESP experimentsconducted by serious scientists in serious institutions. Joseph Banks Rhine, a botanist at Duke University published a famous book in 1934 called " Extra-Sensory Perception" in which he claimed to have overwhelming（压倒的）evidence of ESP. However, other scientists have been unable to repeat his resultsexactlyin the same way, which has resulted in the book 45 much of its original reliability. The Granzfield experiments are considered to have been the most 46 examined ESP experiments. The experimenters had their eyes covered and earsblockedwhile a "sender" attempted to transmit messages. Later the experimenters would compare the messages received to the 47 messages sent out. There was a great deal of excitement and interest at the time but the research failed to produce 48 results. Human beings are 49 to the supernatural phenomena. ESP will always continue to fascinate human beings. Some of the most successful films in recent years havefuelled interest among the younger generations who are starting to ask the same questions and to look for explanations for the same phenomena as their parents and grandparents before them. Who knows? One day we might just find these answers because one thing is certain, “The truth is out there!"

Girls that eat with their families are less likely to develop eating disorders, a study says. New research shows girls who regularly havefamily meals are much less likely to adopt extreme weight control 50 such as vomiting (呕吐), using laxatives (泻药)or diet pills. A study 51 more than 2500 American high school students found that girls who ate five or more family meals a week had a much healthier 52 with food in later life. The research,53 in international magazine Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, polled students aged 13 to 17 in 1999 who werefollowed up five years later. Regular family meals were found to have a protective effect 54 the girls’ age, weight, socio-economic status, dieting habits or relationship with her family. Experts say doctors should 55 families to have dinner at the table 56 on the couch in front of the television tokeep away from serious eating disorders. Belinda Dalton, director of eating disorders clinic The Oak House, saideating with family helped “normalize” young people's relationship with food. “When the young are feeling that they're not treated properly or when they are feeling completely depressed, they 57 something that they can control and food is something 58 and accessible for them to control. 59 , if they're sitting with their family
on a regular basis then their family can be more in
of their eating,” Ms Dalton said.
“It's about young people feeling 61 their family and that builds self-esteem (自尊) and sense of 62 and that works very actively against someone developing an eating disorder.” An eating disorders expert, Kirsty Greenwood, said meal times were often difficult for sufferers. “It's typical that they feel very 63 of their eating habits and often won't eat with other people.

Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. A Work your brain! Between 2 and 3 pounds of wonder, it controls everything we say, do or think, who we are and what we care about, the way we walk or laugh or figure out things, what we like and the talents we possess,how we see and talk and run and jump and process our food. The brain uses 20 percent of our body's oxygen and 20 percent of its blood. Somewhere within its protein, fat, 100,000 miles of blood vessels and 100 billion nerve cells, it helps us remember where we put our gym shoes. Change our temperature so we don't die because of the heat or cold. Speed us up or slow us down. Help us choose between orange juice or orangeflavored drinks. Its complexity are stunning, far beyond anything most of us can imagine. To keep this work of art as polished as possible we need to eat right, exercise and keep mentally stimulated. Good nutrition helps brain cells communicate with each other. Exercise stimulates a hormone in our brain that improves memory. Mental stimulation keeps you sharp even as you age. “It's very important that we tell people to be physically active and mentally active,” said neurologist Malcolm Stewart. “People cannot stop aging, but you're able to reduce the damage; you're able to keep the function up.”
Following are Dr.Stewart's advice for improving brain health： ? Nutrition Avoid fast food. Follow the old adage(格言): For breakfast, eat like a king; for lunch, like a queen; for supper, like a beggar. ? Exercise Do a combination of stretching aerobic and musclestrengthening every day. ? Mental games Try to have a sense of hope about the future. Do puzzles. Listen to music. Reach out to others to make their lives better. 65.

As we have seen, the focus of medical care in our society has been shifting from curing disease to preventing disease—especially in terms of changing our many unhealthy behavior, such as poor eating habits, smoking, and failure to exercise. The line of thought involved in this shift can be pursued further. Imagine a person who is about the right weight, but does not eat very nutritious foods, who feels OK but exercises only occasionally, who goes to work every day, but is not an outstanding worker, who drinks a few beers at home most nights but does not drive while drunk, and who has no chest pains or abnormal blood counts(血细胞计数), but sleeps a lot and often feels tired. This person is not ill. He may not even be at risk for any particular disease. But we can imagine that this person could be a lot healthier. The field of medicine has not traditionally distinguished between someone who is merely “not ill” and someone who is in excellent health and pays attention to the body’s special needs. Both types have simply been called “well.” In recent years, however, some health specialists have begun to apply the terms “well” and “wellness” only to those who are actively striving to maintain and improve their health. People who are well are concerned with nutrition and exercise, and they make a point of monitoring their body’s condition. Most important, perhaps, people who are well take active responsibility for all matters related to their health. Even people who have a physical disease or handicap (缺陷) may be “well,” in this new sense, if they make an effort to maintain the best possible health they can in the face of their physical limitations. “Wellness” may perhaps best be viewed not as a state that people can achieve, but as an ideal that people can strive for. People who are well are likely to be better able to resist disease and to fight disease when it strikes. And by focusing attention on healthy ways of living, the concept of wellness can have a beneficial impact on the ways in which people face the challenges of daily life.
72. Today medical care is placing more stress on ______. A. keeping people in a healthy physical condition B. monitoring patients’ body functions C. removing people’s bad living habits D. ensuring people’s psychological well-being 73. In the first paragraph, people are reminded that ______. A. good health is more than not being ill B. drinking, even if not to excess, could be harmful C. regular health checks are essential to keeping fit D. prevention is more difficult than cure 74. Traditionally, a person is considered “well” if he ______. A. does not have any unhealthy living habits B. does not have any physical handicaps C. is able to handle his daily routines D. is free from any kind of disease 75. According to the author, the true meaning of “wellness” is for people ______. A. to best satisfy their body’s special needs B. to strive to maintain the best possible health C. to meet the strictest standards of bodily health D. to keep a proper balance between work and leisure Section C Directions:Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading from A-F for each paragraph. There is one extra heading which is not needed. A. Suggestions for happiness B. The correlation of love with happiness C. The role of education and income in one’s happiness D. The study of happiness E. The chief factors of happiness F. The ideal happy occasions 76. According to recent polls sixty to seventy percent of Americans consider themselves to be moderately happy and one in twenty persons feels very unhappy. Psychologists have been studying the factors that contribute to happiness. It is not predictable whether a person in an apparently ideal situation is necessarily happy. The ideal situation may have little to do with his actual feelings. 77. A good education and income are usually considered necessary for happiness. Though both may contribute, they are only chief factors if the person is seriously undereducated or actually suffering from lack of physical needs. 78. The rich are not likely to be happier than the middle-income group or even than those with very low incomes. People with college education are somewhat happier than those who do not
graduate from high school, and it is believed that this is mainly because they have more opportunities to control their lives. Yet people with a high income and a college education may be less happy than those with the same income and no college education. 79. Poor health does not rule out happiness except for the severely weakened or these in pain. Learning to cope with a health problem can contribute to happiness. Those with a good sex life are happier in general, but those who have a loving affectionate relationship are happier than those who rely on sex alone. Love has a higher correlation with happiness than any other factor. 80. It should be noted that people quickly get used to what they have, and they are happiest when they feel they are increasing their level no matter where it stands at a given time. Children whose parents were happily married have happier childhood but are not necessarily happier adults. The best formula for happiness is to be able to develop the ability to tolerate frustration, to have a personal involvement and commitment, and to develop self-confidence and self-respect. Section D Directions:Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. Many children first learn the value of money by receiving an allowance （津贴） The purpose is to ． let children learn from experience at an age when financial mistakes are not very costly． The amount of money that parents give to their children to spend as they wish differs from family to family． Timing is another consideration． Some children get a weekly allowance． Others get a monthly allowance． any case， In parents should make clear what， anything， child is expected to pay if the for with the money． At first， young children may spend all of their allowance soon after they receive it． they do If this，they will learn the hard way that spending must be done within a budget．Parents are usually advised not to offer more money until the next allowance．The object is to show young people that a budget demands choices between spending and saving．Older children may be responsible enough to save money for larger costs，like clothing or electronics． Allowances give children a chance to experience the things they can do with money．They can share it in the form of gifts or giving to a good cause. They can spend it by buying things they want．Or they can save and maybe even invest it． Saving helps children understand that costly goals require sacrifice：you have to cut costs and plan for the future．Requiring children to save part of their allowance can also open the door to future saving and investing．Many banks offer services to help children and teenagers learn about personal finance．A savings account is an excellent way to learn about the power of compound interest(利息)．That may not seem like a lot．But over time it adds up． （Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN TWELVE WORDS． ） 81．Parents give their children allowance to_______________________． 82．Why are parents advised not to offer young children more money in advance?

Recently, recycling textbooks has been put into practice in some provinces in China. As far as I am concerned, it is a good way which will benefit both society and us students. For one thing, it is good news to students from poor families who can’t afford textbooks. For another, recycling textbooks can save natural resources. We are cutting down too many trees every day. In the long run, it helps develop the students’ environmental awareness. What’s more, students may learn to share and work with others through recycling textbooks. To sum up, I consider recycling textbooks useful and helpful. And I still hope students shouldn’t damage their textbooks and keep them clean for the benefit of the next student to use them.

Section B Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage Police are asking for help from the public with an investigation into an armed robbery at downtown earlier this year. About midnight on Monday, January 12, two men entered the hotel as it was preparing to close. Female staff members were confronted by one of the men who aimed a pistol at them and ordered them to the ground.
The offenders removed money from the hotel’s cash registers before ordering the frightened staff to unlock the door to the office. The offenders then removed cash from the hotel’s safe before fleeing the hotel by a rear entrance. Police said the offenders fled the scene in a white car. Both men wearing black T-shirts and blue jeans and they have been described as to be tall and large. Police are also investigating another armed robbery which occurred at a bike store last Monday. About 2:10 p. m. three men entered the store. One of the men was armed with a metal pole and another armed with a knife. The man with the knife threatened the attendant and forced him to place an amount of cash from the register into a bag. They fled and were last seen running into Seventh Ave. Detectives from the downtown area command are investigating and are seeking assistance from the public. Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact downtown police at 9955-0055 or 1800-3300. Questions: 11. How many robbery cases is this report involved? 12. How did the criminal leave the scene after they robbed the hotel? 13. What did the criminals get by robbing in these cases? Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following instructions. A woman assembly was held in the Town Hall yesterday--- Rebecca McLean reported. There are many aspects of the women’s liberation movement. Some women want full equality with men in every aspect of life. In marriage, the want husbands and wives to share all the work and responsibilities of a family. In work, they want women and men to have the same jobs and the same chances to succeed. They want women to be paid just as much as men are for the same work. Other women think they want the same pay if they hold the same jobs as men. At home, however, they do not expect their husbands to share in the cleaning, cooking and other housework. It is important to remember that the women’s liberation movement is not concerned only with concrete issues. The movement is also concerned with attitudes and beliefs. One example of this concern is the issue of a woman’s identity. A woman’s identity is what she thinks of herself as a person, and what she thinks she can do. Some women do not think they are capable of doing anything important. The women’s liberation movement has helped these improve their view of themselves. Many women have taken jobs, have helped others, have raised healthy children, and have done many other things to their community. They have shown that they are capable of being good leaders and of doing many important things. Questions: 14. Where did the woman assembly take place? 15. What did the woman assembly mainly discuss? 16. What was the women’s liberation movement concerned with? Section C Blanks 17 through 20 are based on the following conversation. M: You are Linda Powell, from Britain, aren’t you? How do you do!
W: How do you do! Yes, I am. I registered for this summer course by Email on 15, February. And are you Mr. Lee? M: Yes. I’m a teacher of this course. You’re welcome to be here to study Chinese.
