Are you worried by the rising crime rate? If you are, then you probably know that your house,
possessions and person are increasingly in danger of suffering from the great rise in the cases of
burglary and attack.
Figures show an ever-increasing crime rate, but it is only too easy to imagine "It will never

Surprisingly, no one knows how many children receive education in English hospitals, still
less the content or quality of that education. Proper records are just not kept.
We know that more than 850,000 children go through hospital each year, and that every child
of school age has a legal right to continue to receive education while in hospital.
Little wonder the latest survey concludes that the extent and type of hospital teaching
available differ a great deal across the country. It is found that half of the hospitals in England
which admit children have no teacher. A further quarter has only a part-time teacher. The special
children's hospitals in major cities do best; general hospitals on the country and holiday areas are
From this survey, one can estimate that fewer than one in five children have some contact
with a hospital teacher and that contact may be as little as two hours a day. Most children
interviewed were surprised to find a teacher in hospital at all. They had not been prepared for it by
parents or their own school. If there was a teacher they were much more likely to read books and
do math or number work; without a teacher they would only play games.
Reasons for hospital teaching range from preventing a child falling behind and maintaining
the habit of school to keeping a child occupied, and the latter is often all the teacher can do. The
position and influence of many teachers was summed up when parents referred to them as "the
library lady" or just "the helper".
Children tend to rely on intimate school friends to keep in touch with school work. Once
back at school, children rarely get extra teaching, and are told to catch up as best as they can.
Many short-stay child-patients catch up quickly. But schools do very little to ease the anxiety
about falling behind expressed by many of the children interviewed.
60．Which of the following statements is true?
A. Every child in hospital receives some teaching.
B. Not enough is known about hospital teaching.
C. Hospital teaching is of poor quality.
D. The special children's hospitals are worst off.
61．It can be inferred from the latest survey that________.
A. hospital teaching across the country is similar
B. each hospital has at least one part-time teacher
C. all hospitals surveyed offer education to children
D. only one-fourth of the hospital have full-time teacher
62．In order to catch up with their school work, children in hospital usually turn to________.
A. hospital teachers B. schoolmates C. parents D. school teachers
63．We can conclude from the passage that the author is________.
A. unfavorable towards children receiving education in hospitals
B. in favor of the present state of teaching in hospitals
C. unsatisfied with the present state of hospital teaching
D. satisfied with the results of the latest survey
A single night of taking the drug Ecstasy(摇头丸)can cause serious brain damage and speed
up the start of Parkinson's disease, scientists say. Just two to three Ecstasy tablets-a quantity that
thousands of clubbers take during parties- can permanently destroy brain cells that affect
movement and reasoning, according to American research that links the drug to Parkinson's for the
A study by a team at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, involving squirrel
monkeys and baboons(狒狒)found that both species suffered permanent damage to key cells
called dopamine neurons, which are lost in Parkinson's, after receiving three low doses of Ecstasy
at three-hour periods.
The study is particularly significant because baboons are one of the best animal models for
the human brain. George Ricaurte, who led the research, said that widespread abuse of the drug
may already be claiming victims of such neurological(神经性的)damage. “The most troubling
result is that young adults using Ecstasy may be increasing their risk for developing Parkinsonism
as they get older.”
Alan Leshner, a former director of the US National Institute on Drug Abuse, said: “This study
emphasizes the multi-aspect damage that Ecstasy can do to users. We've long known that repeated
use damages brain cells. This study shows that even very occasional use can have long-lasting
effects on many different brain systems. It sends an important message to young people: don't
experiment with your own brain.”
Janet Betts, the Essex mother whose daughter Leah died after a single Ecstasy tablet in 1995,
said: “This comes as no surprise. People can't see the effects at first, and they’re in permanent
denial(否认), saying it's not going to happen to them. But we'll see the symptoms later, just as we
have with smoking.”
64．The article is intended to .
A. explain the effects of the drug Ecstasy on many different brain systems
B. warn youngsters of the risk of taking the drug Ecstasy
C. convince people of the abuse of the drug Ecstasy
D. tell us the links between the drug Ecstasy and Parkinson's disease
65．According to the passage, Parkinson’s is .
A. the name of a scientist B. a kind of brain cell C. be name of an animal D. a kind of disease
66．We know from the passage that low doses of Ecstasy .
A. won’t cause serious brain damage B. can permanently destroy one’s brain cells
C. can’t show any effect in an experiment D. may bring on Parkinson’s at once
67．Why are squirrel monkeys and baboons involved in the experiments?
A. Because their brain is similar to human being’s
B. Because these animals usually take drugs.
C. Because these animals will soon get well after the experiment.
D. Because there is a model in the animals’ brains.
"The days when the management in Western companies presented gold watches to
long-serving employees to thank them for loyal(忠诚的)service is now just a memory", says the
Educational and Training Support Agency.
This new development in the shape and movement of the workforce throughout Western
businesses is partly a result of the way that layers of middle management are being removed,
leaving more workers responsible for their own development.
"Having workers take responsibility for their own development might be dramatic, but it is
now the rule," says the Educational and Training Support Agency.
"Today, not only are workers more mobile, they have to run to keep up with changes," says
the Government-founded agency. "It is no longer enough for a worker to gain a set of skills.
Workers need the ability to react and get used to changes" This new system is also being pushed
along by the way that industry is looking to its workers to renew their own skills. In the United
States, some companies have contracts(合同) which repair their employees to show regularly how
they have their skills up to date.
Contrary to this traditions of the past, employees in the West are now looking for autonomous
learners as recruits, people who can develop their own continuing education beyond the school
and university system. At the same time, businesses are developing the capacity for workers to
take up autonomous learning on site in workplace, so that the skills and abilities of all workers in a
business continue to improve and increase. "This, of course," says business theory, "will also
improve the productivity(生产率) of the workers and therefore the profits of the company."
68．The management in western companies no longer presents gold watches to their
employees because ___________.
A．they are not loyal to companies
B．there is some to replace gold watches
C．the way prove to be a failure
D．setting down with a company for life is very rare for most employees now
69．The western workforce frequently changes their jobs partly because _________.
A．hoping from job to job has become a new trend
B．employees are expecting to have more experiences in their life
C．workers have to take more responsibility for themselves
D．it is easy to complete themselves by doing so
70．The passage seems to suggest that the present situation in society requires that workers
A．show more loyalty to their companies
B．try to develop the skill to deal with the unfamiliar and the unknown
C．gain as many as sets of skills as possible
D．be quick in changing their careers if there is the possibility
71．The phrase"autonom0us learner" in the last paragraph means __
A．people who have received higher education
B．people who study hard themselves
C．people who learn things very quickly
D．people who continue their study beyond regular education
Beauty has always been regarded as something praiseworthy. Almost everyone thinks
attractive people are happier and healthier, have better marriages and have more respectable jobs.
Personal advisers give them better advice for finding jobs. Even judges are softer to attractive
defendants. But in the executive( 行 政 的 )circle, beauty can become a liability. While
attractiveness is a positive factor for a man on his way up the executive ladder，it is negative to a
Handsome male executives were considered as having most honesty than plainer men; effort
and ability were thought to lead to their success.
Attractive female executives were considered to have less honesty than unattractive ones;
their success was connected not with ability but with factors such as luck.
All unattractive women executives were thought to have more honesty and to be more
capable than the attractive female executives. Interestingly, though, the rise of unattractive
overnight successes was connected more to personal relationships and less to ability than that of
the attractive overnight successes.
Why are attractive women not thought to be able?
An attractive woman is considered to be more feminine and an attractive man more manly
than the less attractive ones. Thus, an attractive woman has an advantage in traditionally female
jobs, but an attractive woman in a traditionally manly position appears to lack the “manly”
qualities required. This is true even in politics…….
72． The underlined word “liability”(Para 1) may be replaced with ________.
A. disadvantage B. strength C. wealth D. uselessness
73．In traditionally female jobs, attractiveness ______.
A. makes women look more honest and capable
B. often provides women a happier life
C. may be a kind of shortcoming for women
D. often enables women to succeed more easily
74．It can be inferred from the passage that people’s view on beauty is often _____.
A. selfish B. reasonable C. modern D. one-sided
75． Following the end of the passage, what will be written about?
A. the disadvantage of attractiveness for men in another field
B. the advantage of attractiveness for women in another field
C. the disadvantage of attractiveness for women in another field
D. the advantage of attractiveness for men in another field
