B Many say their most painful moment is saying good-bye to those they love. After watching Cheryl, my daughter-in-law, through six long months her mother suffered towards death, I think the most painful moment was waiting to say good-bye. Cheryl made the two-hour trip over and over to be with her mother. They spent long afternoons praying, comforting, and retelling their shared memories. As her mother’s pain intensified and more medication was needed to ease her into sedation 镇静 （
状态）, Cheryl sat for hours of silence watching by her mother’s bed. Each time she kissed her mother before leaving, her mother would tear up and say, “I’m sorry you drove so far and sat for so long and I didn’t even wake up to talk with you.” Cheryl would tell her not to worry, it didn’t matter, still her mother felt she had let her down and apologized at each good-bye until the day Cheryl found a way to give her mother the same reassurance her mother had given to her so many times. “Mom, do you remember when I made the high school basketball team?” Cheryl’s mother nodded. “You’d drive so far and sit for so long and I never even left the bench to play, You waited for me after every game and each time I felt bad and apologized to you for wasting your time.” Cheryl gently took her mother’s hand. “Do you remember what you would say to me?” “ I would say I didn’t come to see you play, I came to see you.” “And you meant those words, didn’t you?” “Yes, I really did.” “Well, now I say the same words to you. I didn’t come to see you talk, I came to see you.” Her mother understood and smiled as she floated back into sleep. Their afternoons together passed quietly into days, weeks, and months. Their love filled the space between their words. To the last day they ministered each other in the stillness, love given and received just by seeing each other. Love is so strong that even in this deepened silence that followed their last good-bye, Cheryl can still hear her mother’s love. 60. According to the writer, what’s the most painful moment? A. Saying good-bye to those one loves. B. Losing one’s mother. C. Waiting to speak to those one loves. D. Waiting to say good-bye to those one loves. 61.

Because her mother had to take more medicine and needed looking after. D. Because her mother was too painful to speak to her. 62. The underlined word “reassurance” probably means_____. A. comfort B. advice C. excuse D. example 63. The best title for this passage would be ________. A. The relation between Mother and Daughter B. To see you C. Is Blood thicker than water? D.

The flattened (变平的) wheat formed a circle about six meters across. Around this circle were four smaller circles of flattened wheat. The five circles were in a formation like five dots (点). During the following years, farmers in England found the strange circles in their fields more and more often. The circles are called “crop circles” because they appear in the fields of grain—usually wheat or corn. The grain in the circles lies flat on the ground but is never broken; it continues to grow, and farmers can later harvest it .Farmers always discover the crop circles in the morning, so the circles probably form at night. They appear only in the months from May to September. At first, people thought that the circles were a hoax. Probably young people were making them as a joke ,or farmers were making them to attract tourists .To prove that the circles were a hoax, people tried to make circles exactly like the ones that farmers had found. They couldn’t do it.They couldn’t enter a field of grain without leaving tracks, and they couldn’t flatten the grain without breaking it. Many people believe that beings from outer space are making the circles to communicate with us from far away and that the crop circles are messages from them. Scientists who have studied the crop circles suggested several possibilities. Some scientists say that a downward rush of wind leads to the formation of the circles—the same downward rush of air that sometimes causes an airplane to crash. Other scientists say that forces within the earth cause the circles to appear. There is one problem with all these scientific explanations: crop circles often appear in formations, like the five—dot formation. It is hard to believe that any natural force could form those.
68. In the summer of 1978, an English farmer discovered in his field that _________. A. some of his wheat had been damaged. B. his grain was growing up in circles. C. his grain was moved into several circles. D. some of his wheat had fallen onto the ground. 69. According to the text, the underlined part “a hoax” (line 1, para.3 )probably means _________. A. an action made to fool people. B. a special way to plant crops. C. a research on the force of winds. D. an experiment for the protection of crops. 70.. Which of the following may prove that the crop circles are not made by man? A. The farmers couldn’t step out of the field. B. The farmers couldn’t make the circles round. C. The farmers couldn’t leave without footprints. D. The farmers couldn’t keep the wheat straight up. 71. That the crop circles are made by is probably true. A. air movement B. airplane crashes C. new farming techniques D. unknown flying objects E My rule for staying young is simple: keep all your attention on the part of you that’s young and growing your brain. Keep your mind awake and you will stay young all over. These are exciting times. Take an interest at least one new thing every day. Careless of your age, it’s not late to make your life more interesting. I know a housewife who had no knowledge of design, who has now made herself into an excellent industrial designer. I know a retired electrical engineer who has become a highly paid ceramic (陶器的) artist. Get over the idea that you are ever too old to go back to school. I know a man who entered Medical College at 70. He got his degree with honors and became an admired doctor. Another man went to school at 71 and is now an active lawyer. In spite of years, staying young is easy for those who live in the future. You can do it if you care enough to try. Keep your mind awake and active. That’s the only youth elixir (灵丹妙药) guaranteed to work. 72. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. Rule for staying young B. Never too old to learn C.

It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 21 st birthdays to the boat club across the lake for their first legal drink. So when Fred’s 21 st birthday came around, he and his friend Brian took a boat out to the middle of the lake. Fred stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned. Brian managed to pull him to safety. Furious and confused, Fred went to see his grandmother. “Grandma,” he asked, “it’s my 21 st birthday, so why can’t I walk across the lake like my father, his father and his father before him?” Granny looked into Fred’s eyes and said, “Because your father and grandfather as well as your great-grandfather were all born in January; you were born in August.”
