Plants are very important living things. Life could not go on if there were no plants. This is because plants can make food from air, water and sunlight. Animals and man cannot make food from air, water and sunlight. Animals get their food by eating plants and other animals. Therefore animals and man need plants in order to live. This is why we find that there are so many plants around us.
If you look carefully at the plants around you, you will find that there are two kinds of plants: flowering plants and non-flowering plants.
Flowering plants can make seeds. The seeds are protected by the fruits. Some fruits have one seed, some have two, three or four, and some have many seeds. But a few fruits have no seeds at all. An example of a fruit without seeds is the banana fruit.
Most non-flowering plants do not grow from seeds. They grow from spores(胚芽). Spores are very small. Some spores are so small and light that they can float in the air. We may say that spores are quite the same as seeds. When these spores are all on wet and shady places, they usually grow into new plants.
56. The main idea of the first paragraph is that __________.
A. we can not live without water B. plants cannot grow without air
C. there are many plants in the world D. plants are important for life
57. Plants can make food from __________.
A. flower, water and air B. air, water and soil
C. water, sunlight and air D. air, sun and light
58. What can we infer(推断)from the passage ?
A. Of all living things animals are most important
B. Spores are seeds
C. All fruits of flowering plants have seeds
D. Without plants, man will die out
59. This passage may be taken from __________.

When you’re curious about something, and want to know more about it, you can use the way of asking questions. Asking questions is the first step to make discoveries and find interesting answers. The steps below can guide you during the research.
Step 1 On a note card or piece of paper, write down the subject that you are interested in. Just get the main idea down. For example, you might write:
Discover more about dinosaurs.
Step 2 Next, stop and think for a moment about what you already know about your subject. List what you already know like the sentences below:
⑴ Dinosaurs lived long before human beings appeared.6

I was driving home one evening at about 5, caught in traffic, and the car started to die— I hardly managed to get into a gas station, glad only that I would have a warm spot to wait for the tow truck(拖车). Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the “ Quickie Mart” building, then suddenly she slipped(滑倒)on some ice and fell down, so I got out to see if she was okay.
When I got there, it looked like she had been overcome by weep than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked exhausted with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her up, and I picked it up and gave it to her. It was a coin.
At that moment, everything came into focus(变得清晰)for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban(雪佛兰汽车) packed full of stuff and three kids in the back, and the gas pump(汽油泵)reading $4.95.
I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying “I don’t want my kids to see me crying,” so we stood at the other side of the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California for Christmas and that things were very hard for her right now.
I took out my credit card and swiped(刷磁卡)it through the card reader on the pump so that she could fill up her car completely, and I bought two big bags of food for her kids in the car who attacked it like wolves. While it was fueling, she asked, “So, are you an angel or something?” I said, “At this time of year, angels are really busy, so sometimes God uses common people.”
It was unbelievable to be part of someone else’s miracle. And of course, you guessed it, when I got in my car it started right away and got me home with no problem. Sometimes, angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter(摆动)of their wings.

Creativity is the key to a brighter future, say education and business experts. Here is how schools and parents can encourage this important skill in children.
If Dick Drew had listened to his boss in 1925, we might not have a product that we now think of as of great importance: a new type of tape. Drew worked for the Minnesota Mining company. At work he developed a kind of material strong enough to hold things together. But his boss told him not to think more about the idea. Finally, using his own time, Drew improved the tape, which now is used everywhere by many people. And his former company learned from its mistake. Now it encourages people to spend 15 percent of their work time just thinking about and developing new ideas.
Creativity is not something one is just born with, nor is it necessarily a character(特征)of high intelligence. The fact that a person is highly intelligent does not mean that he uses it creatively. Creativity is the matter of using the resources one has to produce new ideas that are good for something. Unfortunately, schools have not tried to encourage creativity. With strong attention to test results and the development of reading, writing and mathematical skills, many educators give up creativity for correct answers. The result is that children can give back information but cannot recognize ways to use it in new situations. They may know the rules correctly, but they are unable to use them to work out practical problems.
It is important to give children choices. From the earliest age, children should be allowed to make decisions and understand their results. Even if it’s choosing between two food items for lunch, decision-making helps thinking skills. As children grow older, parents should let their children decide how to use their time or spend their money, but not help them too much if they make the wrong decision. The child may have a hard time, but that is all right. This is because the most important character of creative people is a very strong desire to find a way out of trouble.
71. What did the company where Drew once worked learn from its mistake? __________
A. They encouraged people to work a longer time.
B. They encouraged people to spend some of their work time considering and improving new
C. They asked people to spend all their work time developing new ideas.
D. They discouraged people to think freely.
72. Creativity is something __________.
A. that is a way of using what one has learned to work out new problems
B. that depends on intelligence
C. that people are born with
D. that is not important at all
73. Why don’t schools try to encourage creativity?
A. They don’t understand the importance of education.
B. They don’t want their students to make mistakes.
C. They think it more important to remember some information.
D. They pay too much attention to examination marks, language and mathematical skills.
74. What should the parents do when their children decide how to spend their money?
A. Try to help them as much as possible.
B. Take no notice of whatever they do.
C. Help them if their decision is wrong but not too much.
D. Leave them as they are.
75. This passage mainly deals with the question “__________”.
A. What is the key to a brighter future
B. How schools and parents can encourage creativity in children
C. What creativity is
D. Whether schools and parents should allow children to make choices and decisions.

One possible version:
How nice to hear from you! In your letter you asked me how to keep healthy. I would like to give you some advice.
Firstly, you need a balanced diet. As you know, we teenagers grow very fast, so we need plenty of nutritious foods, such as fish, meat, and beans, especially fresh vegetables and fruits, because they have a lot of fiber and vitamins. Don’t eat the food which contains too much sugar and fat, like butter, cheese, coffee and chocolate. Fat and sugar make people put on weight easily. Secondly, you should take physical exercise regularly instead of studying in the classroom all the time. What’s more, having enough sleep is very important. So I advise you to have at least eight hours of sleep every day and not to stay up too late.
Only in this way can you keep fit.
M: Good afternoon. I’m Robert Anderson. I have an appointment with Mrs. Brown. Is she in?
W: Yes, she is. She’s been waiting for you in her office. Please come in.
W: I was at the gate at one o’clock. How did I miss you?
M: I got there at twelve o’clock and waited a while, but I left before you got there, around half past twelve, I guess.
M: Excuse me, when will the 7:15 train arrive?
W: It’s been delayed two hours because a bridge was broken.
W: Could you please take me to the Hua Xing Cinema quickly? I’m already late.
M: I’ll try, but the traffic is really heavy. It will take at least a half hour.
M: Mary, you always go to school by bike. Why did you come on foot today?
M: My bike is broken and is being repaired. And… I don’t like taking a bus.
M: Well, Pat, what would you rather do tomorrow morning, stay in or go shopping?
W: I’d like to go shopping, but there’s no need for you to come with me. I’d rather you had a rest at home. You must be tired out after writing your book the whole day.
M: I’m a bit tired, but I’ll meet you for lunch. There’s a new restaurant just off the Kensington High Street. Do you think you’ll be able to find your way there?
W: Oh, Bruce! It seems as if this were my first visit to London! You can tell me where it is in the morning.
M: It’s so hard for me to learn English. Why is it so easy for you?
W: I didn’t know you were having problems. Maybe it’s easier for me because I already speak two languages. But also, I really work at it.
M: Well, I always do my homework and go to classes. What else do you think would help?
W: Well, you might try reading newspapers. And I always talk to Americans when I get a chance, though sometimes it’s hard.
M: But, how do you meet Americans? I only know other foreign students.
W: How about sitting next to an American at lunch, or have you ever thought asking someone over to your house for dinner?
M: Those are good ideas, but I’m a little shy to speak English.
W: You won’t learn if you don’t try and speak. If I were you, I’d talk to your English teacher. He might have some good ideas.
M: Hello, my name’s David Parker. I’m calling about the apartment advertised in the paper. Can you tell me something about it?
W: Yes. It’s a one-bedroom apartment, with a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a balcony.
M: Where is it located?
W: It’s on Montreal Road.
M: Is it furnished?
W: Yes, it is furnished with sofas, a dining table, chairs and some appliances.
M: How much is the rent?
W: It’s five hundred dollars per month, including utilities.
M: You mean gas, electricity and heat?
W: Yes, that’s right.
M: Is there anything like management fee or parking fee?
W: The management fee is included in the rent, but parking is fifty dollars a month.
M: Can I come and have a look at it today?
W: Yes. How about one o’clock this afternoon?
M: One o’clock sounds fine. See you then.
W: See you.
M: Are you looking forward to your trip to Canada, Susan?
W: I can’t wait to see Canada, Jason, but I’m scared stiff of the journey. My husband insists on flying, but I want to sail. Planes make me nervous.
M: There’s nothing to be frightened of. How many planes fly across the Atlantic every day?
W: I’ve no idea. Hundreds, I suppose.
M: And how often do you hear of a crash? Once or twice a year.
W: Yes. But planes fly so high and fast that once is enough.
M: There are more road accidents per day than air deaths per year. Air transport is really safe compared with road transport.
W: I still prefer to go by sea. Ships may not travel fast, but at least you can relax. I’d love a trip on a luxury liner like the Queen Elizabeth II.
M: It’s fine if you’re a good sailor, but have you ever traveled far in a rough sea?
W: No. I’ve only been in a boat once. I sailed down the River Thames on a sightseeing tour. But in any case I’d rather be sea-sick than dead.
Hello, everyone. I’d like to tell you a story about Miss Richards.
Miss Richards was a teacher at a school for boys and girls. She taught chemistry and physics from the lowest to the highest classes in the school. Sometimes the new classes learned rapidly, but sometimes they were very slow, and then Miss Richards had to repeat things many times.
One year, the first class had been studying chemistry for several weeks when Miss Richards suddenly asked, “What is water? Who knows? Hands up.”
There was silence for a few seconds, and Miss Richards felt sad. But then one boy raised his hand.
“Yes, Dick?” said Miss Richards encouragingly. He was not one of the brightest students in the class, so she was glad this boy could answer.
“Water is a liquid which has no color until you wash your hands in it, then it turns black,” the boy replied.
