B The small unframed painting called ―Fishman‖ was signed by a little-known Italian artist, Maveleone (1669-1740). When it was sold recently in New York for $ 27,000, the seller, Mr. Oliver Pitt, was asked to explain how the picture had come into his possession. Pitt said, ―I didn‘t know it was so valuable. I‘m not an art expert. Photography is my hobby. I bought ?Fisherman‘ in Italy in 1970 for $140. The picture was dirty, and I could see the artist‘s signature. But anyway it wasn‘t the picture that I liked. I bought it because of the frame. ―it‘s a most unusual frame, made of tiny, silver sea-shells （贝壳） . They are set in
such a way that they reflect （反射）perfect light onto the surface of a picture. I now have a photograph of my wife in that frame, and I‘ll never part with it. ―When I returned to New York I showed the painting in its frame to a customs officer. I told him that I had paid $140 for it but admitted I didn‘t know its actual worth. The customs man valued it at $140, and I was asked to pay duty on that value. I did so, there and then. ―Later, I took off the frame, and that uncovered Maveleone‘s signature. My wife suggested in fun that the painting might be a valuable one; so I cleaned it and put it up for sale.‖ As a result of this explanation, Oliver Pitt had to appear in court. He was accused （指控） of knowingly making a false statement of the value of a picture so as to cheat the Customs Department. Pitt was not happy, ―I told the truth as I knew then,‖ he said. ―What else could I say?‖ And then the judge agreed with him. ―The Customs Department is responsible (to blame),‖ he said, ―for making a true valuation of goods brought into the country, so that the correct amount of duty may be charged. Mr. Pitt did not cause or try to cause the mistake that was made. He paid the duty that was demanded. If, now, the Customs Department finds that its valuation was not correct, it cannot be allowed to have another try. Pitt is not guilty(有罪).‖ 40.

D. Pitt‘s wife was regarded as an expert because of her wise suggestion C The modern sailing ship was developed by a man who never went to sea. He was Prince Henry of Portugal, the younger son of the Portuguese King and an English princess. Prince Henry lived in the fifteenth century. As a boy he became devoted to the sea, and he dedicated himself to improving the design of ships and the methods of sailing them. In 1416, when he was twenty-two, Henry founded a school for mariners, to which he invited everyone who could help him-Jewish astronomers, Italian and Spanish sailors, and Arab mathematicians and map makers who know how to use the crude compass of the day and could improve it. Henry‘s goal was to design and equip vessels that would be capable of making long ocean voyages without having to keep close to the shore. The caravel (多桅小帆 船) ， which he helped design, carried more sails and was longer and slimmer than any ship then made, yet was tough enough to stand up against gales at sea. He also developed the carrack (宽身帆船), which was a slower ship, but one that was capable of carrying more cargo. The world woes credit to Prince Henry for the development of the craft that made oceanic exploration possible. He lives in history as Henry the Navigator. 45.
