(B) Does this sound familiar? You stay up all night to study for a test or finish a project, and the next day you feel tired, sluggish, and you can’t seem to focus, no matter how much coffee you drink. Have you ever stayed up two nights in a row? How about three? The world record for a person staying awake is 11 nights. Why do we need sleep? We all feel better after a good night’s sleep, but there are more important reasons to sleep well. Studies show that the body repairs muscles and replaces cells during sleep. Researchers also think that the brain regenerates during sleep. A certain chemical is released when we are awake and our brain is working hard. High levels of this chemical in the brain are thought to be a signal for the brain to rest. Others think that while we sleep our brain works to organize our memories, which is why we dream. What happens when we don’t get enough sleep? Missing one night of sleep is not normally bad for us, but can slow us down and make us irritable. Missing two nights can affect our concentration, and we make more mistakes. It is considered dangerous to stay awake more than three nights, when clear thinking becomes impossible and we can start to lose touch with reality. In laboratory experiments, rats forced to stay awake eventually die. No matter why we need sleep, one thing is certain: Staying awake for more than two consecutive nights is a bad idea. 46. What does the underlined word ―irritable‖ mean? A. happy B. mad C. angry D. disappointed 47. Which of the following statements is not true according to the passage? A.

To show that the sleep of the people is totally different from that of the rats. C. To show that rats are suffering from staying awake. D. To show that rats can sleep. 49. If we stay awake for two consecutive nights, _________. A. we won’t be able to fall asleep easily any more. B. we’ll eventually get insane.

C. we need more coffee. D. we will find it difficult for us to concentrate. 50. Which of the following is the best title for the passage? A. Staying Awake B. Why do people sleep? C. How to sleep well? D. Studies on sleeping

(C) Paddington Bear, one of Britain's favorite children's fictional characters, is celebrating his 50th birthday this year. From his humble origins as a homeless immigrant at a London railway station, Paddington has gone on to sell over 30 million books in 30 different languages. According to the first story, the bear was discovered at Paddington Station sitting on a battered suitcase bearing the label "Wanted on Voyage". There was a note attached to hi s coat which said "Please look after this bear". It transpires that Paddington Bear had been sent from the South American country of Peru by his aunt. A family called the Browns were at the station to meet their daughter when they noticed Paddington. They decided to take him in. Because he didn't know how old he was, he decided to give himself two birthdays a year! Paddington Bear was the brainchild of Michael Bond, who came up with the character after seeing a teddy bear alone in a shop near Paddington Station. He felt sorry for it and bought the toy for his wife for Christmas and set about writing the first book. Many more stories followed as well as a TV series and a film, which is now in the pipeline. Although he is just a children's character, Paddington Bear has recently attracted controversy. He appeared in advertisements eating sandwiches containing not marmalade but Marmite, a British sandwich spread made from yeast extract. Purists argue that Paddington would never eat anything other than marmalade sandwiches. However, all arguments will be forgotten as fans get together to wish Paddington Bear a happy 50th birthday. 51. Paddington Bear is a _________.
