A A man and his son were once going with their donkey to market. As they were walking along by its side a countryman passed them and said: “You fools, what is a donkey for but to ride upon?” So the man put the boy on the donkey and they went on their way. But soon they passed a group of men, one of whom said: “See that lazy boy, he lets his father walk while he rides.” So the man ordered his boy to get off, and got on himself. But they hadn't gone far when they passed two women, one of whom said to the other: "Isn’t that lazy man ashamed of making his pool little son walk while he rides?" The man didn't know what to do. At last he took his boy up before him on the donkey. By this time they had come to the town, and the passers-by began to jeer and point at them. The man stopped and asked what they were laughing at. The men said: “Aren't you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor donkey with you and your son?” The man and boy got off and tried to think what to do. They thought again and again and then they cut down a pole, tied the donkey's feet to it, and raised the pole and the donkey to their shoulders. They went along surrounded by the laughter of all who met them till they came to Market Bridge, when the donkey, getting one of his feet loose, kicked out and caused the boy to drop his end of the pole.

For the first 16 years of his life, Wheeler and his family lived in many different countries. In the early 1970s, Wheeler met a young woman named Maureen. They soon married. Before getting jobs, Tony and Maureen wanted to travel. They took a year -long trip from London， through Asia, to Australia. On the trip, they visited places like India, Iran, and Afghanistan. When Tony and Maureen arrived in Australia， people asked many questions about their trip. To answer these questions, Wheeler wrote a guidebook called Across Asia on the Cheap. The book told people about different countries' weather，customs(风 俗）, and places to see. But unlike travel guides in the 1970s, Wheeler’s book also talked about places most tourists did not go. He also wrote about unusual things to see and do. The book was very popular. Wheeler and Maureen started a company called Lonely Planet. They continued travelling. They wrote guidebooks for each place they visited. Today, 400 people work for Lonely Planet. The company has over 650 guidebooks. Wheeler still writes about travel “hot spots” (for example, Cambodia in Asia and Croatia in Europe). For more information, read the books! 59. Which trip was Tony Wheeler’s first guidebook about? A.

It is from the time before electricity, when people used candles for light. Someone who lived in a big house would have a servant light his way by holding a candle. The expression meant that the person who cannot hold a candle to you is not fit even to be your servant.
“Hold out” is an expression one hears often in sports reports and labor news. It means refusing to play or work. Professional football and baseball players hold out if their team refuses to pay them what they think they are worth. Members of labor unions hold out and refuse to work until they get the work agreement they want. The expression “hold up” has several different meanings. One is a robbery. A man with a gun may say, “This is a hold up. Give me your money.” Another meaning is to delay. A driver late for work may tell his boss, “I was held up by heavy traffic.” Someone who was robbed on the way to work might say, “Sorry, boss, I was held up by a hold up.” Still another meaning of the expression is for a story to be considered true after an investigation. The same driver late for work could say, “My boss did not believe a hold up held me up. But the police confirmed what I said so my story held up.” “Hold on” is another expression. Often it means wait or stop. As you leave for school, your brother may say, “Hold on, you forgot your book.” Hold on is also used to ask a telephone caller to wait and not hang up his telephone. 63. The passage is mainly about___________. A. the origin and usage of several “hold “expressions B. how to distinguish between four “hold”expressions C. the classifications of “hold” expressions. D. the importance of “hold” expressions. 64. If you can’t get your ideal salary, you can________. A. hold a candle. B.hold out C. hold up D.hold on 65 . Which of the following is NOT one of the meanings of “hold up”? A. A robbery B. To delay C. To prove true D. Wait a moment. 66. Suppose a stranger comes to ask you something when you are talking to your friends on the Phone in the street. What will you say to your friend? A. Hold a candle. B. Hold out. C. Hold up D. Hold on. D Susan Williams went to a boarding school. Here is one of the letters she wrote to her parents from the school. Dear Mom and Dad, I’m afraid I have some very bad news for you. I have been very naughty and the school principal is very angry with me. She is going to write to you. You must come and take me away from here. She does not want me in the school any longer. The trouble started last night when I was smoking a cigarette in bed. This is against the rules, of course. We are not supposed to smoke at all. As I was smoking, I heard footsteps coming towards the room. I did not want a teacher to catch me smoking, so I threw the cigarette away. Unfortunately, the cigarette fell into the waste-paper basket, which caught fire. There was a curtain near the waste-paper basket which caught fire, too. Soon the whole room was burning. The principal phoned for the fire department. The school is a long way from the town and by the time the fire department arrived, the whole school was in flames. Many of the
girls are in the hospital. The principal says that the fire was all my fault and you must pay for the damage. She will send you a bill for about a million dollars. I am very sorry about this.

Many of them have surfaces of rock or clay or small stones. They are not flat, either. They often have high hills and deep valleys. There is some plants’ life in many parts of the desert. There is little rain in the desert, but it does fall often enough for most plants. The deserts of the world are not uninhabited(not lived by people). People also live outside oases(绿洲), but these people are not farmers. They have camels, goats, donkeys, sheep, etc. These animals can live on the desert plants and do not need much water. The people of the desert have to move constantly from place to place, they must always look for grass or desert plants for their animals. They usually live in tents. When there is no more food for their animals, they fold up their tents, pat them on their camels and donkeys, and move to another place. In good years, when there is enough food for their animals, they trade their skins and their goats and camel hairs with the people of oases for wheat and fruit. But in bad years, when there is not enough food for their animals, the people of the desert would attack the oases people. But they are also hospitable, no man in the desert would ever refuse to
give a stranger food and water. 71. According to the passage, deserts are mostly made up of _______. A. clay B. rock C. stones D. sand 72.

To be opened on [Date]”. After sealing it, put this envelope in a private place where only you yourself can get it. And finally open the letter on the date you wrote on the envelope and enjoy it in love and joy.
