Gas is expensive, and driving is tiring. When you go by air, you have to drive out of town to an airport and wait a long time for your plane. But trains go from one city centre to another. American trains are very modern and comfortable. Some have restaurants and bars, some have bedrooms. Trains that go through beautiful parts of the country sometimes have glass roofs. You can look all round and enjoy the wonderful forests and mountains. But there are problems too. Many trains are old. They break down or arrive late. Stations are not always clean and friendly places. It's the same all over the world. If you pay to go on the best trains, you get the best. If you travel cheaply, you must expect the worst. 56.

Although the long, cold winter has already started in South Korea, the annual (一年一度的) national exams have made the atmosphere very heated.
More than 675,000 South Korean high school graduates took the college entrance exam last Wednesday. They usually take exams in Korean, maths, sociology (社会学), history and foreign languages. Officially there is one college place for every 1．33 students. But because all the students want to go to the top universities in the country, the competition can reach one place for 10 students. The students want to attend these colleges for both their famous names and better job opportunities. Because students face fierce competitions, they have to study very hard to realize their dreams. Park Seung said he and his classmates often go to school before 7:30 a.m. After school has finished at 6:30 p.m., most of them go to the library to continue their study instead of returning home. Since many libraries in South Korea are open 24 hours a day, they often stay long into the night. Many of the Senior 3 students only sleep for three to four hours a day. “I feel a lot of pressure， I have to study very hard in order to make my dream come true. This but is my lifetime goal and it will be a turning point in my life which could decide my future,” Park said. The exam day is a very serious day for the whole of South Korea. Vehicles are not allowed within a 200-metre radius (范围) of all the test sites to make sure the students have quiet surroundings. Tooting (吹奏) of horns is forbidden, even airplanes are ordered to avoid landing and take-off near the test sites during listening comprehension test hours. Students are told their scores in December before they apply for college. This is followed by face-to-face oral tests. There are public and private universities in South Korea. Many private universities are well-known, but their fees can be 18, 000 yuan each term. This has made a lot of students think again. 60．In South Korean ________. A．there is only one college C．there are only top universities A．675, 000 B．507, 520 B．there is only one top college D．there are a number of colleges C．500, 000 D．600, 000

C Everybody has one of those days when everything goes wrong. This is what happened to Harry. He got up one morning very late because he had forgotten to wind up his alarm clock. He tried to shave（刮脸）quickly and cut himself. When he got dressed he got blood all over his clean shirt, so he had to find another one. The only other shirt that was clean needed ironing, so he ironed it. While he was ironing it, there was a knock at the door. It was the man to read the electricity meter （表）. He showed him where the meter was, said good-bye and found that the iron had burnt a
hole in his shirt. So he had to wear the one with the blood on it after all. By this time it was very late, so he decided he couldn’t go to work by bus. He telephoned for a taxi to take him to work. The taxi arrived and Harry got in and began to read the newspaper. In another part of the town, a man had killed a woman with a knife and was seen to run away in a taxi. When Harry’s taxi stopped outside his office, a policeman happened to be standing there. He saw the blood on Harry’s shirt, and took him to the police station. He was kept till 3 o’clock in the afternoon before the police were sure that he was not the man they wanted. When he finally arrived at the office at about four, his boss took a look at him and told him to go away and find another job. 64. Harry had_________.

Everyone is getting unwell.” This may sound like something someone would say today. But, in fact, an unknown citizen who lived in Rome in 53 AD wrote it. We all love new inventions. They are exciting, amazing and they can even change our lives. But have all these developments really improved the quality of our lives? Picture this: You’re rushing to finish your homework on the computer. Your mobile phone rings, a message from your friend appears on the screen, and the noise from the television is getting louder and louder. Suddenly the computer goes blank and you lose all your work. Now you have to stay up all night to get it done. How calm and happy do you feel? Inventions have speeded up our lives so much that they often leave us feeling stressed and tired. Why do you think people who live far away from noisy cities, who have no telephones, no cars, not even any electricity often seem to be happier? Perhaps because they lead simpler lives. One family in the UK went “back in time” to see what life was like without all the inventions we have today. The grandparents, with their daughter, and grandsons, Benjamin and Thomas, spent nine weeks in a 1940s house. They had no washing machine, microwave, computer or mobile
phones. The grandmother, Lyn, said, “It was hard physically. But not mentally.” She believed life was less materialistic. “The more things you have, the more difficult life becomes,” she said. The boys said they fought less. Probably, they said, because there was less to fight over, such as their computer. Benjamin also noticed that his grandmother had changed from being a “trendy （ 时 髦 的）,beer-drinking granny, to one who cooked things”. Here are some simple ways to beat the stress often caused by our inventions! Don’t be available all the time. Turn off your mobile phone at certain time of the day. Don’t check your e-mail every day. Don’t reply to somebody as soon as they leave a text message just because you can. It may be fun at first, but it soon gets annoying. With the Internet and so much information available, we are expected to know everything all the time, but sometimes don’t be afraid to say, “I don’t know.” Make sure you spend some time talking to your family. Set aside one evening a week when you don’t turn on the television. Play cards and chat instead. Get a low-neck hobby. Every day do something in the old-fashioned way, such as walking to have a face-to-face meeting instead of using the e-mail or telephone, or making a birthday card. Don’t worry too much about life—laugh more! 68. The writer uses the quote at the beginning of the passage to___________ . A. share a truth about life B. tell us what life was like a long time ago C. make us wonder what happened in Rome in 53 AD D. point out that you experience some big problems and they may be the same 69. Why did the family choose to spend some time in a 1940s house? A. Because they loved to live simple lives. B. Because they were curious about how people lived without modern inventions. C. Because they were troubled by modern inventions. D. Because living in a different time would be a lot of fun for them. 70. What do you think the underlined word “available” in the first suggestion offered by the writer means? A. Busy on line. B. Free. C. Be able to. D. Be found by others. 第二节 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据对话情景和内容，从对话后的选项中选出能入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为 多余选项。 Body language is the quiet, secret and most powerful language of all.
