His wife died when the child was in his early teens. So Fitzgerald devoted himself to (奉献于?) fathering the kid. Unfortunately the son died in his late teens. Meanwhile, Fitzgerald’s wealth greatly increased. He spent a lot on art works of the masters (大师). Later Fitzgerald himself became seriously ill. Before his death, he had carefully prepared his will (遗嘱) as to how his wealth would be settled – to sell his entire collection (收藏) at an auction (拍卖). Because of the large quantity (数量) and high quality (质量) of his collection, a huge crowd of possible buyers gathered for the auction. Many of them were museum directors (董事) and private collectors (收藏家) eager to bid (出价). Before the auction, the art works were shown, among which was a painting of Fitzgerald’s son by an unknown artist. Because of its poor quality, it received little attention. When it was time for the auction, the auctioneer (拍卖商) gaveled (敲槌) the crowd to attention. First the lawyer read from Fitzgerald’s will that the first art work to be auctioned was the painting of his son. The poor-quality painting didn’t receive any bidders, except one old servant who had served the son and loved him, and who for emotional (情感的) reasons offered the only bid. As soon as the servant bought the painting for less than one English pound, the auctioneer stopped the bidding and asked the lawyer to read again from the will. The crowd became quiet, and the lawyer read from the will: “Whoever buys the painting of my son gets all my collection.” Then the auction was over. 46. The English Baron Fitzgerald was ____________________. A. a museum director B. a master of art C. an art collector D. an art dealer (交易商) 47.

He knew the content (内容) of the will. D. He found it cheap for him to buy. 49. Fitzgerald’s will showed ________________. A. his desire to fool the bidders B. his invaluable (宝贵的) love for his son C. his sadness at the death of his son D. his regret of having no children to
take over his wealth 50. The result of the auction would be the followings, except __________. A. Expected B. Puzzled (困惑) C. Surprised D. Unbelievable ( B )
A lot of crime is against bicycles. About 150,000 bicycles are stolen every year and most are never found. You can prevent this happening by following a few careful steps.
Basic Security (安全)
Do not leave your bicycle in out-of-the-way places. Always lock your bicycle when you leave. Secure (绑住) it to lampposts (街灯柱) or trees. Take off smaller parts and take them with you, for example lights and saddles (车座).
Get a good lock. There are many different types in the shops. Buy one that has been tested against attack. Ask for a recommendation (推荐) from a bike shop.
Security marking your bike can act a deterrent to a thief. It can also help the police find your bicycle. It should be clearly written and include your postcode and your house or flat number. This will provide a simple way to identify your bicycle.
There are a number of companies who will security mark your bicycle for you. They will then put your registration number and personal details on their computer database. Then if your bicycle is found it will be easy to contact you.
Keep a record of the bicycle yourself: its make, model and registration number. You can even take a photograph of it. This will prove the bicycle belongs to you. 51. Which part of the text gives you information on how to lock up your bicycle when you leave it? A. Locks. B. Marking. C. Registration. D. Basic Security. 52. The underlined phrase “act as a deterrent to a thief” means ____________. A. help you recognize your bike B. help the police find your bicycle C. stop someone stealing your bicycle D. stop you worrying about your bike 53. _________ will put your registration number and personal details into their computers. A. A number of kind people B. Many stores C. Many a company D. Lots of policemen 54. The article advises you to keep a record of your bicycle _____________. A. in the bike shop and your computer B. in the police station and a security company
C. in a security company and your university D. by yourself and in a security company 55. The main purpose of this article is ____________. A. to tell you what to do if your bicycle is stolen B. to suggest ways of keeping your bicycle safe C. to give you advice on where to buy a good lock D. to say why you shouldn’t keep your bicycle in a quiet place ( C ) The National Dark-Sky Week (NDSW) is a week during which people all over the United States turn off their lights to enjoy the beauty of the night sky without light pollution. This even was started by Jennifer Barlow of Midlothian, Virginia in 2003, and it is becoming more popular each year. It has been supported by the International Dark-Sky Association, the American Astronomical Society, and the Astronomical League. This even always occurs in April, during the week of the new moon so that the sky can be as dark as possible for the best viewing conditions. “It is my wish that people could see the night sky without other light in the sky as our ancestors (祖先) saw it hundreds of years ago,” explains Barlow. Since it only lasts a week and not everyone in the country will take part in it, how will the National Dark-Sky Week reduce light pollution? The main goal of NDSW is to increase awareness (意识) of the harmful effects of light pollution. It is not possible for all of the light pollution in this part of the world to disappear. However, it is possible to make a small difference in the quality of the night sky. Another goal of this even is to promote (促进) the use of better lighting systems that direct light toward the ground instead of up into the sky. Jennifer Barlow states, “The night sky is a gift of such beauty that it should not be polluted by wasted light. In this way, our children will not lose touch with the wonder of our universe.” 56. This passage is mainly about ______________. A. better lighting systems B. the beauty of the night sky C. the harm of light pollution D. the National Dark-Sky Week 57. Which of the following statements about the National Dark-Sky Week is WRONG? A. It is becoming more and more popular in America. B. The event was started in 2003 by Jennifer Barlow. C. The event takes place in the first week of every April. D. American people are supposed to turn off their lights during that week. 58. What is Jennifer Barlow’s wish? A. That light would be directed up into the sky. B. That the sky would always be as dark as possible. C. That people could see the night sky without light pollution as our ancestors did. D. That people could spend time enjoying the beauty of the sky every night. 59. We can infer from the underlined sentence in Paragraph 4 that ____________.
A. many people in America hate this event B. it may be hard to reduce light pollution C. the event should last a month every year D. light will no longer pollute the sky soon 60. What is the main goal of the National Dark-Sky Week? A. To promote the use of better lighting systems. B. To help people realize the harm of light pollution. C. To cause all the light pollution in America to disappear. D. To help young children enjoy the wonder of our universe.
