the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.My basketball coach (教练）at Princeton used to say, “On the court (球 场)， you can tell who is selfish.” When my sister Michelle brought Barack Obama home to meet the family, she said to me, “I want you to take him out to play, to see what type of man he is when he， s not around me_” So I invited Barack to play basketball with a few friends of mine. I was very nervous although I had already met Barack a few times. I was thinking this guy seemed like a good guy. We played a hard five-on-five. He was thin but not weak at all. He played extremely left-handed. He dealt with everything perfectly. He wasn’t the best guy out there or the worst guy. I liked the fact that he was confident but wasn’t proud. Barack was very team-oriented (有团队精神的)， very unselfish. He played as if he was one of us — he wasn’t trying to be president of Harvard Law Review. But the best part about it was that when we were on the same team, he did not pass me the ball each time. He wasn’t trying to suck up to my sister through me. I was glad to give my sister the good news, “Your boy is straight.” He isn’t selfish, which is the greatest praise you can give both a player and a leader. America has got a guy who is running a government in an efficient manner. That’s the same guy I got to know playing basketball when he was visiting my family.

(A) , What should you think about when you try to find your career? You are probably better at some school subjects than others. These may show strengths that you can in your work. A boy who is good at mathematics can use that in 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 schools. On the other hand, you may not have any specially strong or weak 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. 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 mental work or cookery and look for a job where you can improve these skills. If you have had a part-time job on Saturday or in the summer, think what you obtained (获得） 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 par-time job. Facing your weak points is also part of knowing yourself. You may be all thumbs (笨手笨脚） when you handle tools; Perhaps you are a poor speller or cannot add up a column of figures. It is harder to face any weaknesses 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 feel sorry about it but, instead, recognize that you will have a chance of a fresh start at work. 62.The first paragraph of the passage mainly talks about_______. A. the indirect value of school work B. the importance of being good at all subjects C. knowing one’s strong or weak subjects at school D. using school performance to help to choose a career
63.According to the writer, having a part-time job for a student is probably _______ . A. a good way to find out his weak points B. of great use for his work in the future C. one of the best ways of earning extra money D. a waste of time he could have spent on study 64.If a student’s school record is not good, in the writer’s opinion, ___ . A. he may be a complete failure in the future B. he will regret not working harder at school C. it may help him do well in his future work D. it will be impossible for him to find a suitable job 65.The main idea of the whole passage is , A. knowing about one's strong and weak points B. developing one’s abilities useful in school work C. gaining useful knowledge by working hard at school D. choosing a career according to what one is skilled in
