      Most of us want to be greener, and all of us want to be richer. Although the only way to be an
environment-friendly motorist is to change your car for a bike, if you are addicted to your wheels,
going green could save you cash. As petrol prices rise, greener drivers can also be richer.
       Petrol is unlikely to become any cheaper. Oil prices, already at record levels, were put under
more pressure this week after President Morales of Bolivia nationalized his country‟s oil and gas
reserves. Turning to a more environmentally friendly car could make a big decline in motoring
costs. About one in six drivers has considered following the example of Leonardo DiCaprio and
David Cameron by turning to a hybrid car.
       Hybrid cars run on petrol and batteries, making them more economical and less harmful to
the environment than petrol-run vehicles. A driver who travels an average of 10,000 miles a year
could save nearly£300 a year on petrol by driving the Honda Civic Hybrid rather than the
petrol-run version, and would release only about two thirds of the carbon dioxide. But those who
are more interested in their wallet than the environment may be put off by the price: the Hybrid is
about £3000 more expensive than its petrol counterpart (对应物).
       Andrew Davis, director at the Environmental Transport Association (ETA), a motor
breakdown company, says that the key to cutting fuel costs is to reduce engine size. “Those who
don‟t want to go for a „green‟ car can cut down on environmental effect and fuel costs by reducing
the size of their car.” A Citroen C1 is not a hybrid car, but its low carbon dioxide releases rival (竞
争) the Honda and Toyota hybrids.
       Another way to cut costs is to change a car to run on liquid petroleum gas (LPG). Ingram
Legge, director of the Greenfuel Company, which changes cars to LPG, says that there has been a
rise in the number of motorists changing their cars.
( ) 1. The purpose of the writer‟s writing the passage is ___________.
          A. to call on us to save as much petrol as possible
          B. to warn us of the lack of petrol due to vehicles
          C. to tell us the differences between hybrid cars and petrol-run cars
          D. to point out that we can save more if we are greener
( ) 2. We can learn from the passage that hybrid cars___________.
          A. are cheaper to buy and smaller in size

                                                  4
          B. are more environmentally friendly and can help us become richer
          C. travel at a higher speed and produce less waste air
          D. are ones that no longer use petrol
( ) 3. Which of the following does the writer probably agree with?
          A. Reducing the size of a car is also a way to cut cost and be environmentally friendly.
          B. In order to save money, you‟d better change your car for a bike.
          C. The best way to solve the lack of petrol is to develop new resources.
          D. As a result of the high price of oil, all people will turn to a hybrid car.
( ) 4. What is the main idea of Paragraphs 4 and 5?
          A. Citroen C1 is more environmentally friendly.
          B. More and more people will turn to LPG.
          C. The ways for drivers to cut costs.
          D. Andrew Davis thinks highly of hybrids.
                                                      B
       While in-car satellite navigation systems are considered a great surprise of the technological
age, they are also destroying our ability to read maps and weakening our very sense of self,
according to one of the nation‟s leading geographers.
       Rita Gardener, president of the Royal Geographical Society, said, “If you are looking at a
road map of Great Britain, apart from looking at roads, you will get a feel for the natural
environment you are moving through and that will tell you something about the economy and the
history.”
     “An ability to place oneself in a spatial (空间的) setting in this way is important,” Dr
Gardner added, “because it provides an insight (洞察力) into the societal, environmental and
economic changes that govern all our lives. It also sharpens our hunter instincts (本能) and sense
of discovery.”
       “Look, for example, at a map of rural East Anglia,” she said, “and you will see the route
from Cambridge to the coast with the A14 running through it. You‟ll see that Bury St Edmunds has
grown dramatically in the last 15 years because there are lots of new development and new light
industry. This tells you that it is on the route between the Midlands and the coast at Harwich and it
has benefited from increased traffic to the Continent.” She said, “You would get none of that
information from a satellite navigation.”
       While emphasizing the importance of being able to read a map, Dr Gardner is less
concerned about teaching children to memorize maps of continents, rivers and capital cities. A
recent survey by National Geographic Kids magazine found that 20 per cent of children in Britain
cannot find their own country on a world map, she said.
       “It is much more important that kids know about major continents and different climate
zones than that they know the name of a particular country, providing they know how to look it up
in a map.”
       “What‟s important is that when they fly on holiday from Manchester to Malaga, they have
an understanding that they are moving into a different geographical zone and they know why the
Mediteranean landscape is different from what they see at home,” she said.
( ) 1. The passage mainly deals with _________.
          A. the importance of geography knowledge in our life
          B. the importance of the ability to read maps


                                                 5
         C. the differences between satellite navigation systems and maps
         D. the advantage of a satellite navigation system
( ) 2. What does the underlined word “it” refer to in Paragraph 4?
         A. Harwich                                          B. Midlands
         C. Bury St Edmunds                                   D. East Anglia
( ) 3. In Dr Gardner‟s opinion, kids in Britain ________.
         A. should memorize all the continents, rivers and capital cities in maps
         B. had better fly to Malaga to realize different landscapes between Mediterranean and UK
         C. should master some basic principles of geography
         D. can turn to a satellite navigation for help for a lack of geography knowledge
( ) 4. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
         A. The road map tells us more than just the route from one place to another.
         B. We can tell the history and economy of a region with the help of a satellite navigation.
         C. A satellite navigation contains as much information as a map.
         D. Children who know about different climate zones can find their own country in a
             world map.
                                                    C
       Have you ever noticed what happens to an idea once you express it? Just talking about it or
writing it down causes you to make it clear in your own mind. How can you use this to increase
your brain power? Start writing.
       By putting thoughts into words, you are telling yourself the logic behind what you think,
feel, or only partly understand. Often, explaining a thought is the process of understanding. In
other words, you increase your brain power by exercising your “explain power.”
       Another benefit of writing is that it helps you remember. Many, if not most, highly
productive people are always taking notes. You can try keeping it all in your head, but if you keep
a journal (日志) of your ideas the next time you‟re working on a big project, you‟ll probably have
more success.
       Want to understand a topic? Write a book about it. That‟s an extreme example, but if you are
learning something new, write a letter to a friend about it, and you will understand it better. Want
to invent something? Write an explanation of the problem--- why you want to solve it, and why it
is worth solving, and you‟re half-way there.
       Writers don‟t always write because they clearly understand something beforehand. Often,
they write about something because they want to understand it. You can do the same. Writing will
help bring you to an understanding. Give it a try.
( ) 1. The best title for the passage may be ___________________.
         A. A Way on How to Write
         B. Increase Your Brain Power Through Writing
         C. Brain Power Helps Improve Your Writing
         D. How to Start Your Writing
( ) 2. According to the passage, writing can help you a lot EXCEPT__________.
         A. to increase your brain power
         B. to improve the ability to remember
         C. to develop your interest in study
         D. to strengthen the understanding of a topic

       What should you think about when trying to find your career? You are probably better at
some school subjects than others. These may show strengths that you can use in your work. A boy
who is good at mathematics can use that in an engineering career. A girl who spells well and likes
English may be good at office work. So it is important to know the subjects you do well in at
school. On the other hand, you may not have any specially strong subjects but your records show a
general satisfactory standard. Although not all subjects can be used directly in a job, they may
have indirect value. A knowledge of history is not required for most jobs but if history is one of
your good subjects you will have learned to remember facts and details. This is an ability that can
be useful in many jobs.
       Your school may have taught you skills, such as typing or technical drawing, which you can
use in your work. You may be good at metalwork or cookery and look for a job where you can
improve these skills. If you have had a part-time job on Saturdays or in the summer, think what
you gained from it. If nothing else, you may have learned how to get to work on time, to follow
instructions and to get on with older workers. You may have learned to give correct change in a
shop, for example. Just as important, you may become interested in a particular industry or career
you see from the inside in a part-time job.
       Facing your weak points is also part of knowing yourself. You may be all thumbs when you
handle tools; perhaps you are a poor speller or cannot add up a column of figures. It is better to
face any weakness than to pretend they do not exist. Your school record, for instance, may not be
too good, yet it is an important part of your background. You should not be apologetic about it but
instead recognize that you will have a chance of a fresh start at work.
( ) 1. What is the passage mainly about?
         A. The significance of working hard at school.
         B. The direct and indirect value of school work.

                                                8
         C. How to face one‟s weakness.
         D. Choosing a career according to one‟s strong points.
(   ) 2. According to the passage, doing a part-time job as a student ____________.
         A. can help afford one‟s education
         B. can help you to prepare for future work
         C. is a good way to practice the skills learnt in school
         D. is a waste of time that could have been spent on study
(   ) 3. From the passage we learn that if a student‟s school performance is not good, he _______.
         A. should pay more attention to learning skills and developing abilities
         B. will be regretful about his bad results
         C. may also do well in his future work
         D. should restart his study in school
(   ) 4. From the last paragraph we know one should _________.
         A. face one‟s own weak points bravely
         B. make full use of one‟s own weak points
         C. study harder for a new school record
         D. apologize for one‟s own school record

      Many students eat their breakfasts on the way to school or in the dinning-room. But some of
them don‟t really know how to eat well when eating out.
      Here is some important advice. The first is to eat less fast food. The most obvious harm of
eating too much fast food is weight gaining because of too much fat. Young people and adults are
at risk of disease related to weight.
      Too much fast food can drag your body down. French fries, for example, were recently found
to contain much more acrylamide(丙烯酰胺) than other food. This may cause cancer. Actually,
deep fried food all contains acrylamide. So don‟t eat it too often.
      Soda is another thing you should watch out for. Cokes and other sodas contain a lot of sugar
and can slow down a person‟s calcium absorption, so it‟s best to drink as little soda as possible.
      Food in the dinning-room may not be as tasty as fast food, but it‟s actually easier to make
healthy choices. Human bodies need variety. You can have a dinner that balances lean proteins,
vitamins and complex carbohydrates(碳水化合物). In other words, a meal with fish or meat,
vegetables and some bread or rice will provide you with most nutrients that the body needs.
      Some snacks, on the other hand, will help keep you going until your next big meal. It is
natural for teenagers, especially boys, to feel hungry during school time. Don‟t forget to take some
foods, like whole-grain biscuits or low-fat milk in your school bag.

     No one can fail to stand in awed ( 令人敬畏的 ) admiration of the great discoveries of
history—Newton' s laws of motion; Kepler' s principles of planetary movement, Einstein' s

                                                10
general theory of relativity. Equally awe-inspiring are artistic creations in painting, theatre, music
and literature, which have also been brought about by discovery through personal efforts. What
do these extraordinary achievements of well-known scientists and artists have to do with problem
solving?
     A great scientific discovery or a great work of art is surely the result of problem-solving
activity. The solution to a problem, we are told, often comes to thinkers in a “flash of insight (顿
悟),although they may have been turning the problem over in their minds for some time. As a
particular form of problem solving, these creative acts are based on the broad knowledge gained in
the past, whether this be of the ``public" sort known to science, or of the "private" sort known to
the artist.
       Many creative thinkers state that they have completely devoted themselves to the subject
matter of the problem, often over fairly long periods of time. Indeed, it would be strange if they
had not done this. Nothing in such statements supports the idea that there is anything very
different about the problem solving that leads to discoveries of the great contributions to the
society. The act of discovery, even in the relatively predictable sense that it occurs in everyday
learning, involves a “sudden insight” which changes the problem situation into a solution situation.
As we have seen, everyday discovery also requires that the learner have the knowledge of the rules
gained in the past, which is involved in the solution.
  ( )1. Newton, Kepler and Einstein are mentioned in the first paragraph to_______.
     A. bring about the subject of the discussion
     B. explain that scientists are more creative
     C. show the difference between science and arts
     D. prove that arts require more personal efforts
  ( )2. While knowledge from the past plays an important role in their achievements, thinkers
     sometimes also depend on their______.
     A. artistic tastes
     B. sudden insight
     C. admiration of discoveries
     D. scientific experiments
( )3. What does the underlined word “this” refer to?
     A. Great contributions to the society
     B. Long-time study of the subject matter.
     C. Various statements about problem solving.
     D. Complete devotion to artistic creation.
( )4. We may conclude from the passage that ______.
     A. it is more likely to make scientific and artistic discoveries in everyday learning.
     B. a sudden insight and knowledge from the past are required in making discoveries
     C. scientific discoveries or artistic creations are usually unpredictable in nature
     D. knowledge of the rules in the past is often developed in the changes of situation

      Millions of women use cosmetics, often called “make-up”. The cosmetics industry is one of
the biggest in the world. Most large stores sell cosmetics, and there are always shops at airports
selling them cheaply.



                                                 11
      The word “cosmetics” refers to anything that people put on their faces to make them look
better. Lipstick, face powder and cream, and eye make-up are the most popular. Although more
women than men use cosmetics, there are cosmetics for men as well as women.
Some people even have cosmetic surgery to make their faces look different. They have the shapes
of their noses and eyes changed.
      The most widely used cosmetic is probably lipstick, as many women who do not wear any
other make-up will often put on a little lipstick.
         Lipstick is made by mixing together different oils and colors. The mixture is then allowed
to get hard and is cut into the shape of a small pencil. When a woman presses the lipstick to her
lips, the end of it becomes soft, and some of it sticks to her lips, giving them extra color.
      Cosmetics were probably first used in India, but it was the Egyptians, six thousand years ago,
who made the most use of them. Rich Egyptian women painted their eyes green and black. They
used a red color to paint pretty designs on their fingernails, the palms of their hands and the soles
of their feet. Pictures of Cleopatra always show her wearing a lot of make-up.
      The Romans also used cosmetics. They liked to make their skin very white and to paint their
eyes. They also used a kind of lipstick.
      In England at one time, very rich women had baths in milk to make their skin beautiful. They
also used a lot of sweet-smelling powder to stop people smelling their bodies, which were often
very dirty because they did not wash very often or change their clothes.
