She made some dolls for me and my two elder sisters. I 36 playing with them, but still, secretly, I hoped for a store-bought 37 like the one our rich cousin had. Her doll 38 open and close its blue glass eyes and even say "Mamma". I 39 stopped admiring it and hoping to have one. However, my dream 40 came true when I was six. One day my father came back from his business trip with three 41 dolls! They were much smaller than our cousin’s doll and their eyes were just painted ones, but I did not 42 such differences. They were 43 "store-bought" dolls. We each chose one and I named 44 Misako. Soon my sisters and I became devoted 45 . Our "children" kept us 46 all day. We gave them a bath, 47 them, brushed their hair, took them out for a walk and put them to bed. Several months later, they got more like real children — their 48 and bodies became dirtier; their dresses got stained; their hair less smooth. But, by then, 49 interests seemed to have moved into 50 toys. Their dolls were abandoned (被抛弃) and in bad condition. One had 51 one of her arms, and 52 was one-legged. "You can 53 them if you want," my sisters said to me. Thus, I had 54 dolls. They were more or less handicapped (残疾) and they often looked at me as if they needed me to 55 them.

But this time I had borrowed a bicycle from a friend of mine. I didn’t know why, but once I was on my own bicycle, a kind of free feeling flooded through me. The faster I rode, the faster I wanted to go! Far ahead, I rode as if my life depended on it, head down, hands grasping the hand-bars. I meant to get to Jinghai Bar as fast as I could... Oh! My hands! Don’t come any closer... Don’t touch me! That poor doctor just couldn’t get my gloves off. Each time he took a step towards me, I broke into painful shouting. Much later, I discovered that I had crashed (碰撞) heavily with another bicycle, and I hadn’t spoken one word of sense for at least three hours! After some time, my mother arrived at the hospital, her face as white as a sheet, and gave me a hug, only then did the doctor begin to stitch (缝合) my head wound, not only did he merrily cut off a long lock of my hair, but used no anaesthetic (麻药) either! Later. I seemed to hear faraway voices saying that my right hand was broken. I almost burst into tears. How would I ever play the piano again? 56. On her way to Jinghai, the writer felt _______. A. nervous B. comfortable C. light-hearted D. upset 57. Why did the writer ride a bicycle to Jinghai Bar that evening? A. Because she wanted to attend a party on time. B.

58. What did the writer think of the doctor? A. Friendly. B. Cruel. C. Hardworking. D. Kind. 59. From the passage we know for sure that before she was wounded she _______. A. often went to Jinghai Bar with her friends B. liked playing the piano C. didn’t like any doctors at all D. would burst into tears when she was in trouble
When we hear the words “college students”, we usually think of a young person between 18 and 22 years old. But in the U.S.A today, a college student often is much older. In fact, educators say in the next few years colleges and universities may have more older part-time students than traditional full-time younger students. Educators report a big increase in the number of Americans who attend college and university classes in the evening or at night or weekends. Most of them are older than 25 years old and more have full-time or part-time jobs. Many are in their thirties or forties. Why are so many people deciding to spend their time and money in order to continue their education? Most are doing it because they believe more education will help them to get a better job. Some are industrial workers whose factories have closed. They are learning new skills to prepare for other kinds of work. Some of the part-time students are not pleased with the jobs they have. They are studying for new ones. Some have retired (退休) and are looking for new kinds of work. Two of every three of the students older than 35 are women. Many of them are returning to school after years of staying at home to care for children. Are older students good students? Most teachers say yes. They say older students really want to learn. They ask difficult questions and are not pleased with simple answers. They often get high grades. 60. It's said that in the next few years ____. A. students in colleges and universities will be much older B. full-time students in colleges and universities will be even younger C. more American colleges and universities will take in part-time students equally D. there will be more older students than younger ones in universities and colleges 61. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Most of the part-time students are without jobs. B. Most of the part-time students are between 18 and 22. C. Many Americans attend college or university classes in their spare time. D. The number of students in colleges and universities has come down greatly. 62. Which of the following is one of the reasons why people decide to continue their education? A. They believe in the saying “more education, better jobs”. B. They learn something new to keep up with the development of science. C. They have already got new jobs because they are tired of their present jobs. D. They are asked to return to colleges for further study by their original ones. 63. The writer writes the passage in the order of the answers to the questions “____”.
A. how, what, how, why C. why, how, what, how
B. what, how, why, how D. how, what, why, how
Tea drinking was an important part of Chinese life, but nowhere in the world did people drink tea with more ceremony(礼节) than in Japan. There, a strict ritual(仪式) was set down in the fifteenth century by the first great tea master, Shuko. This tea ceremony is still performed today. Guests must wash their hands and faces and remove their shoes before entering the tearoom through a low doorway that forces them to bend the neck and appear modest. As the guests sit cross-legged, the host places a spoonful of powdered tea into a special bowl, adds boiling water, and then stirs(搅 动) it with a bamboo brush. Although in early tea ceremonies, everyone drank from the same bowl, it later became the practice for the host to serve the tea in each one’s bowl. The guests drink the tea slowly and talk until they have finished drinking. Then they are expected to throw back their heads and take the final drop with a loud sound to show how good the tea is. As the ceremony comes to an end, the guests admire the empty serving bowl for its beauty. The host washes the cups and the ceremony ends. They do not certainly have the formal tea ceremony every time they drink tea in Japan, but the tea is always served with much care and politeness. 64. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Chinese people drink tea with less ceremony than Japanese people do. B. Japanese people cross their legs every time they drink tea. C. Chinese people don’t have their own tea culture. D. Japanese hosts usually admire their tea serving bowls before the guests. 65. In what order do you enter the tearoom when you are invited to drink tea in a Japanese home? ①Remove your shoes. ②Bend your neck. ③Wash your hands and face ④Enter the tearoom through a low doorway. A. ① ③ ② ④ B. ③ ④ ① ② C. ① ④ ③ ② D. ③ ② ① ④ 66. It is suggested that tea drinking ____. A. is still an important part of Chinese life B. is no longer considered as important in Japan C. is still an important part of Japanese life D. now takes place in Japan without ceremony 67. What’s the writer’s main purpose to write the passage? A. To compare the tea ceremony between the Chinese and the Japanese. B. To explain why tea drinking is an important part of Japanese life. C. To show how tea drinking developed in Japan. D. To explain the formal tea drinking ceremony in Japan.
BEIJING, Sunday, March 5，2006— China's new "historic task" is to narrow the gap between rich
and poor and improve the economy of the country's large but still poor rural(农村) areas, Prime Minister Wen Jiabao said in a national address Sunday morning. Wen said officials must find a way to make sure that the two-thirds of China's 1.3 billion people who live in rural areas share the quick economic growth that has mostly taken place in cities. "We need to see clearly that there are many hardships and problems in economic and social life," he said in the televised address before the National People's Congress(大会). Some deeply seated problems that have built up over a long time have yet to be solved, and new problems have happened that cannot be ignored(忽视)." Wen focused a large part of his speech on the recently announced effort to build a "new socialist countryside", in which the central government has promised to spend more on agricultural and rural basic construction and social services for the country's 800 million farmers and people in rural areas. He said the government had decided to put US$42.3 billon in such spending this year, an increase of 14.2 per cent over 2005. That rate of growth is not particularly high for a country that recorded 9.9 per cent economic growth last year. 68. This passage is probably taken from _____. A. a newspaper report B. a TV report C. an entertainment magazine D. a radio report 69. What does the word address (in paragraph 1) mean? A. speech B. congress C. museum D. place 70. What is the main idea of the passage? A. Wen Jiabao's speech at the congress. B. China is poor in rural areas. C. China's economy increased a lot this year. D. China's got new plans for the rural areas.

However, experts say a lot of people do not follow it. A recent study has found that many Americans fail to wash their hands after using public toilets. About thirty percent of the people leave public restrooms without stopping to wash their hands. In the study, researchers asked one thousand adults how often they washed their hands. The researchers observed almost eight thousand people at public toilets in five major American cities. Results of the study were compared to a similar study done in 1996. More than ninety-five percent of Americans questioned say they always wash their hands after using public restrooms. However, the study has found that only sixty-seven percent of them actually do so. The study has also found that American men are less likely than women to wash their hands after using a public restroom.
