A Jeremy Fox, a retired businessman in a small city in England , recently bought an old farmhouse with a yard and a small field, about five miles out of the town. There he planned to lead a simple life with his wife, Amelia. It was while clearing out the old barn on the far side of the yard that he made an interesting discovery. In a corner, under some old sacks, he found some large fragments (碎片) of an antique bowl. Out of curiosity, he took them into the kitchen and, much to the anger of his wife, washed the mud off them. That evening he spread newspapers over the kitchen table and carefully study the fragments together. However, two pieces were found missing. Two days later, having pulled down the barn, Mr. Fox was digging over the ground in preparation for the installation (安装) of a greenhouse, when he discovered the two missing pieces. When he had stuck them in position, the bowl looked so fine that Amelia agreed to its being placed on a table in the living room, in front of the window. "We might have something a bit special here," he said to his wife. A few days later, Jeremy took several photographs of the bowl, which he sent off to Sotheby's in London. Unexpectedly, Sotheby's was extremely interested in the bowl and sent an expert to inspect it. It turned out that it was a Chinese Ming fish bowl, dating back to around 1 500, and might be expected to get a five-figure sum at an auction. A week later still more unexpectedly, two police officers called and told the Foxes the bowl was stolen property. So the bowl never reached the auction room, and Mr. Fox never received the five-figure sum that had been mentioned. However, he framed one of the photographs he had taken and hung it on the wall. 51. At first Mrs. Fox seemed to be_________________ A. greatly annoyed at Mr. Fox's enthusiasm B. very much interested in the discovery C. uncertain of Mr. Fox's enthusiasm D. curious about Mr. Fox's findings 52. Most likely "Sotheby's" was_________________ A. an antique shop B. a friend of Mr. Fox's C. an artist D. a china store 53. According to the expert, the bowl could be sold at the price of_________________ A. five thousand pounds B. less than ten thousand pounds C. one thousand, five hundred and ninety pounds D. at least ten thousand pounds 54. Which of the following is NOT true? A. Most probably Sotheby's purchased the bowl in the end. B. It turned out that Mr. Fox got neither the money nor the bowl. C. Mr. Fox preferred country life to city life after his retirement. D. Mr. Fox was fond of gardening.
B Have you ever had the strange feeling that you were being watched? You turned around and, sure enough, someone was looking right at you! Parapsychologists (灵学家)say that humans have a natural ability to sense when someone is looking at them. To research whether such a "sixth sense" really exists, Robert Baker, a psychologist (心理学家) at the University of Kentucky, performed two experiments. In the first one, Baker sat behind unknowing people in public places and stared at the backs of their heads for 5 to 15 minutes. The subjects (受试者) were eating, drinking, reading, studying, watching TV, or working at a computer. Baker made sure that the people could not tell that he was sitting behind them during those periods. Later, when he questioned the subjects, almost all of them said they had no sense that someone was staring at them. For the second experiment, Baker told the subjects that they would be stared at from time to time from behind a two-way mirror in a laboratory setting. The people had to write down when they felt they were being stared at and when they weren't. Baker found that the subjects were no better at telling when they were stared at than if they had just guessed. Baker concludes that people do not have the ability to sense when they're being stared at. If people doubt the outcome of his two experiments, said Baker, "I suggest they repeat the experiments and see for themselves." 55. The purpose of the two experiments is to________. A. explain when people can have a sixth sense B. show how people act while being watched in the lab C. study whether humans can sense when they are stared at D. prove why humans have a sixth sense 56. In the first experiment, the subjects________. A. were not told that they would be stared at B. lost their sense when they were stared at C. were not sure when they would be stared at D. were uncomfortable when they were stared at 57. The underlined word "outcome" in the last paragraph most probably means_________________ A. value B. result C. performance D. connection 58. What can be learned from the passage? _________________ A. People are born with a sixth sense. B. The experiments support parapsychologists' idea. C. The subjects do not have a sixth sense in the experiments. D. People have a sixth sense in public places. 59. Alice returned from the manager's office, me that the boss wanted to see me at once. A. having told B. tells C. to tell D. telling 60. —Why haven't you bought any butter? —I ________to but I forgot about it. (NMET 2004) A. liked B. wished C. meant D. expected
