They live next to each other and their farms are both at the foot of the mountain. So they can help each other. But neither of them likes to use his head. They're both poor though they work hard. Most villagers have built new houses, but they still live in the low and broken houses. They never find out why. Once Uncle Li went to town to buy some medicine for his wife. In the town he heard the apples in a city were expensive. He told Uncle Wang about it as soon as he went back. They decided to carry some apples to the city. They borrowed some money from their friends and bought nearly 1,000 kilograms of apples in the villages and carried them to the city on a tractor. Bad luck! A lot of apples has already been carried there when they arrived. A few days later they had to sell them at a low price (价格)。They felt unhappy and returned to their village. "I can't understand why we sustained (蒙受) losses in business while others always profit (盈利)" Uncle Li asked one day. "The tractor was too small " Uncle Wang said without thinking. "We'll carry more apples on a truck next time!" "I agree!" said Uncle Li. "How foolish (傻的) we were !" 6. Uncle Li and Uncle Wang live in the low and broken houses because __________.

Their parents usually tell them that Father Christmas will come during the night. Father Christmas is very kind and hearted. He gets to the top of each house and climbs down the chimney into the fireplace. He fills each of the stockings with Christmas presents. Of course, Father Christmas isn't real. In Jim and Kate's house, "Father Christmas" is really Mr Green. Mr Green doesn't climb down the chimney. He waits until the children are asleep. Then he quietly goes into their bedrooms and fills their stockings with small presents. When they were very young, Mr Green sometimes wore a red coat. But he doesn't do that now. The children are no longer young, and they know who "Father Christmas" really is. But they still put their stockings at the end of their beds. 11. Christmas Eve is __________.

A round table is put in a garden, and on the table is a piece of blue cardboard（硬纸版）with a drop of syrup（糖浆）on it. After a short time, bees come to the syrup. The bees then fly to their hive（蜂房）and give the syrup to other bees in the hive. Then they return to the feeding-place which they have found. After a while, the blue cardboard with the syrup on it is taken away. Instead of this card, a blue card is now put on the left side of the first feeding-place and a red card to its right. These new cards have no syrup on them. Very soon bees arrive again, and fly straight to the blue card. None go to the red card. Picture 1 16. How many cards do you need to prepare for the experiment? A. Two: one blue and one red B. Three: two blue and one red C. Three: one blue and two red D. Four: two blue and two red 17. If Picture 1 below shows the table top during Step 1 of the experiment, which of A, B, C, D in Picture 2 shows the table top during Step 2? Picture 2 18. During Step 2 of the experiment, the bees go to ________. A. the blue card with syrup on it B. the new blue card with no syrup on it C. the empty space where the original（原先的）blue card was D. the new blue card with syrup on it on the left of the red card 19.

Bees Love Blue B. Bees Love Syrup C. Bees, Color and Syrup D. Can Bees See Color? （D） Now satellites are helping to forecast（预报）the weather. They are in space, and they can reach any part of the world. The satellites take pictures of the atmosphere（大气）, because this is where the weather forms（形成）. They send these pictures to the weather stations. So meteorologists（气象学家）can see the weather of any part of the world. From the pictures, the scientists can often say how the weather will change. Today, nearly five hundred weather stations in sixty countries receive satellite pictures. When they receive new pictures, the meteorologists compare（比较）them with earlier ones. Perhaps they may find that the clouds have changed during the last few hours. This may mean that the weather on the ground may soon change, too. In their next weather forecast, the meteorologists can say this. So the weather satellites are a great help to the meteorologists. Before satellites were invented, the scientists could forecast the weather for about 24 or 48 hours. Now they can make good forecasts for three or five days. Soon, perhaps, they may be able to forecast the weather for a week or more ahead（提前）. 21. Satellites travel _____________. A. in space B. in the atmosphere C. above the ground D. above space 22. Why do we use the weather satellites to take pictures of the atmosphere? Because __________. A. the weather satellites can do it easily B. clouds form there C. the weather forms there D. the pictures can forecast the weather 23. Meteorologists forecast the weather __________. A. when they have received satellite pictures B. after they have compared new satellite pictures with earlier ones C. before they received satellite pictures D. during they study satellite pictures 24. Maybe we’ll soon be able to forecast the weather for ________. A. one day B. two days C. five days D. seven days or even longer 25. The main（主要的）idea of this passage is that satellites are now used in _________. A. taking pictures of the atmosphere B. receiving pictures of the atmosphere C. doing other work in many ways D. weather forecasting III．完形填空(共15小题；每题2分，共20分。) 通读下面的短文，掌握其大意。然后，从每小题的四个选择项中选出可填入相应空白处的选项。 The United States is well-known for its network of major highways designed to help a driver get from one place to another in the shortest possible time. 26 these wide modern roads are generally smooth and well maintained, with 27 sharp curves and many straight sections, a direct route is not always the most 28 one.

My English teacher is such a great soul, to whom I owe many thanks. During the previous study, my biggest flaw must come to carelessness, which worried me a lot. To make matters worse, I was too anxious to seek the fundamental reason for my failure. I just dedicated myself to huge amounts of practice, regardless of repeated mistakes. Fortunately, my teacher noticed it and offered to have a long talk with me. Having been persuaded to change my attitude, I finally got the right way to rid myself of carelessness and gained confidence as well. I am grateful to my English teacher for all the support he has given me, which has made me stronger and a better person.
