"Look, it"s Baldy!" A boy shouted in my direction across the playground. Even though I was
used to regular insults(侮辱) because of the 26 on my hed, it was still horrible to hear. I
sighed as I headed back to the class.
When I was just 20 months old, I suffered serious 27 after a bowl full of hot oil fell on
my head. I was 28 to hospital and had to say there for weeks while the doctors 29 to
save my life. "Holly"s very lucky to be alive," they told Mum and Dad. "But she"ll be left with
scars on her head, and of course her hair won"t grow there."
As a child, I cared much about my scars, so I usually wore a scarf to cover them up when I
left home. If I didn"t, people would call me 30 names like Baldy. Although my friends
were always comforting me ,they never 31 understood how it felt.
Then through the hospital I was 32 to a children"s burns camp, where children like me
can get any help. There, I met 14-year-old Stephanie, whose burns are a lot more serious than
mine. But she is so 33 that she never lets anyone put her down. "You shouldn"t 34
what people say about what you look like because we"re not different from anyone else, Holly,"
she 35 me. "And you don"t need to wear a scarf because y0ou look great 36 it!" For
the first time in my life I could speak to someone who"d been through something 37 . So
weeks later, at my 13th birthday party, inspired by her 38 , I gave up my scarf and showed
off my scars. It felt amazing not having to 39 away behind my scarf.

A regular inspection last month by the Ministry of Agriculture showed that food quality in
thrity-seven major cities has improved after a four-month promotional campaign.
The nationwide inspection of vegetables, pork and aquatic products 41 (find) acceptance
rates had risen since August 42 the campaign was launched. The inspection found that 95.3
percent of the country"s vegetables were safe in terms of pesticide residues; so were 98.4 percent
of meat products were up to scratch with regard to residues of clenobuterol hydrochloride (盐酸
盐), a drug some farmers 43 (use) to put in pig feed but which is now banned due to 44
damage it can cause to the human heart. 99.8 percent of aquatic products were free of
chloramphenicol, and 95.7 percent were free from malachite green, both of 45 are banned
fish food supplements. No pork products in Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai and 25 other cities 46
(pollute) with banned drugs. Aquatic products in seven cities 47 (include) Beijing, Tianjin
and Guangzhou were also found to be safe from 48 (legal) drugs.
Thanks to the campaign, public 49 (aware) of agricultural product quality and food
safety has been strengthened.
The ministry said it will follow up the campaign by cracking down on fake agricultural
supplies and develop a network that gives farmers access 50 authentic and good-quality

Some years ago industries had more freedom than they have now，and they did not need to
be as careful as they must today. They did not need to worry a lot about the safety of the new
products that they developed. They did not have to pay much attention to the health and safety of
the people who worked for them. Often new products were dangerous for the people who used
them; often conditions in the work place had very bad effects on the health of the workers.
Of course sometimes there were real disasters which attracted the attention of governments
and which showed the need for changes. Also scientists who were doing research into the health of
workers sometimes produced information which governments could not ignore. At such times,
there were inquiries into the causes of the disasters or the problems. New safety rules were often
introduced as a result of these inquiries; however, the new rules came too late to protect the people
who died or who became seriously ill.
Today many governments have special departments which protect customers and workers.
In the USA, for example, there is a department which tests new airplanes and gives warnings
about possible problems. It also makes the rules that aircraft producers must follow. Another
department controls the foods and drugs that companies sell. A third department looks at the
places where people work, and then reports any companies that are breaking the laws which
protect the health and safety of workers. Of course, new government departments and new laws
cannot prevent every accident or illness, but they are having some good results. Our work places
are safer and cleaner than before. The planes and cars which we use for travel are better. Producers
are thinking more about the safety and health of the people who buy and use their products.

A California family drives a car that could help protect the environment. When Jon and
Sandy go to the store or to their daughters’ soccer games, they drive in high-tech style. They drive
a＄1 million, fuel-cell-powered car. It may be the world’s most expensive car and one of the most
environmentally friendly cars. The FCX is the first fuel-cell-powered car to be used by a family
anywhere in the world. The FCX uses hydrogen and oxygen for fuel. Car makers have been
working to develop vehicles that are better for the environment. They are developing cars that use
fuel other than gasoline. And then what is fuel cell technology? Fuel cell technology works by
changing the chemicals hydrogen and oxygen into water. This process produces electricity, and
water vapor which comes out of the exhaust pipe. Most cars release dangerous gases such as
carbon monoxide(一氧化碳) and carbon dioxide. Many scientists say these gases are major
contributors to global warming. “The FCX is driven just like any other vehicle on the road, but
without the gases which pollute the environment, ” scientists say. Fuel cell technology has been
around since the 1800s, but scientists have yet been to perfect it. They say it may take years before
the technology is ready for widespread use. Another earth-friendly car is already on the market.
Hybrid cars use both gasoline and an electric motor. They are becoming more popular with
customers because they cut pollution and improve fuel efficiency.
56. Which of the following about the FCX is NOT true?
A. It may be the most expensive car in the world.
B. It is one of the most environmentally friendly cars.

Oceanography has been defined as "The application of a11 sciences to the study of the sea".
Before the nineteenth century scientists with an interest in the sea were few and far between.
Certainly Newton considered some theoretical aspects of it in his writings, but he was reluctant to
go to sea to further his work.
For most people the sea was remote, and with the exception of early intercontinental
travelers or others who earned a living from the sea, there was little reason to ask many questions
about it, 1et alone to ask what lay beneath the surface. The first time that the question "What is at
the bottom of the oceans?" had to be answered with any commercial consequence was when the
laying of a telegraph cable from Europe to America was proposed. The engineer had to know the
depth profile(起伏形状) of the route to estimate the length of cable that had to be manufactured.
It was to Maury of the US Navy that the Atlantic Telegraph Company turned, in l853, for
information on this matter. In the 1840s, Maury had been responsible for encouraging voyages
during which soundings were taken to investigate the depths of the North Atlantic and Pacific
Oceans. Later, some of his findings aroused much popular interest in his book The Physical
Geography of the Sea.
The cable was laid, but not until 1866 was the connection made permanent and reliable. At
the early attempts, the cable failed and when it was taken out for repairs it was found to be
covered in living growths, a fact which defied contemporary scientific opinion that there was no
life in the deeper parts of the sea.
Within a few years oceanography was under way. In 1872 Thomson 1ed a scientific
expedition(考察), which lasted for four years and brought home thousands of samples from the
sea. Their classification and analysis occupied scientists for years and led to a five-volume report,
the last volume being published in l895.
61. The proposal to 1ay a telegraph cable from Europe to America made oceanographic studies
take on ___________.
A. an academic aspect B. a military aspect
C. a business aspect D. an international aspect
62. It was ____ that asked Maury for help in oceanographic studies.
A. the American Navy
B. some early intercontinental travelers
C. those who earned a living from the sea
D. the company which proposed to lay an undersea cable

A. to make some sounding experiments in the oceans
B. to collect samples of sea plants and animals
C. to estimate the length of cable that was needed
D. to measure the depths of the two oceans
64. "Defied" in the 5th paragraph probably means "___"
A. doubted B. gave proof to C. challenged D. agreed to

We find that bright children are rarely held back by mixed-ability teaching. On the contrary,
both their knowledge and experience are enriched. We feel that there are many disadvantages in
streaming pupils. It does not take into account the fact that children develop at different rates. It
can have a bad effect on both the bright and the not-so-bright child. After all, it can be quite
discouraging to be at the bottom of the top grade!
Besides, it is rather unreal to grade people just according to their intellectual ability. This is
only one aspect of their total personality. We are concerned to develop the abilities of all our
pupils to the full, not just their academic ability. We also value personal qualities and social skills,
and we find that mixed-ability teaching contributes to all these aspects of learning.
In our classrooms, we work in various ways. The pupils often work in groups: this gives
them the opportunity to learn to co-operate, to share, and to develop leadership skills. They also
learn how to cope with personal problem as well as learning how to think, to make decisions, to
analyse and evaluate, and to communicate effectively. The pupils learn from each other as well as
from the teacher. Sometimes the pupils work in pairs; sometimes they work on individual tasks
and assignments, and they can do this at their own speed. They also have some formal class
teaching when this is appropriate. We encourage our pupils to use the library, and we teach them
the skills they need in order to do this efficiently. An advanced pupil can do advanced work: it
does not matter what age the child is. We expect our pupils to do their best, not their least, and we
give them every encouragement to attain this goal.
66. In the passage the author’s attitude towards “mixed-ability teaching” is___________
A. critical B. questioning C. approving D. objective
67. By “held back”(Line 1) the author means “______________”
A. made to remain in the same classes
B. forced to study in the lower classes
C. drawn to their studies
D. prevented from advancing
68. The author argues that a teacher’s chief concern should be the development of the students___
A. personal qualities and social skills
B. total personality
C. learning ability and communicative skills
D. intellectual ability
69. Which of the following is NOT MENTIONED in the third paragraph?
A. Group work gives pupils the opportunity to learn to work together with others
B. Pupils also learn to develop their reasoning abilities
C. Group work provides pupils with the opportunity to learn to be capable organizers.
D. Pupils also learn how to participate in teaching activities.
70. The author’s purpose in writing this passage is to _____________
A. argue for teaching bright and not –so-bright pupils in the same class
B. recommend pair work and group work for classroom activities
C. offer advice on the proper use of the library
