Radio announcers give the correct time during the day. People there think that it is important to know the time. Most Americans have watches. They want to do certain things at certain times. They do not want to be late. Not all people all over the world value time. Suppose you visit a certain country in South America. You would find that people living there do not like to rush. If you had an appointment (约会)with someone, he would probably be late. He would not care for arriving on time. In some countries in South America, even the radio programs may
not begin right on time, nor do the radio announcers think it important to announce the right time. Many people regard a clock as a machine. It seems to them that a person who does everything on time is controlled by a machine. They do not want a clock or any machine to have that much power over their lives. 31. There are clocks in most stores in the US cities because ______. A. people in the stores want to sell these clocks B. bosses want to make their stores beautiful C. people think it important to know the time D. they needn't wear watches when they are away from home 32.

B Fitzgerald, a very wealthy English man, had only one child, a son, who naturally was the apple of his eye. His wife died when the child was in his early teens. So Fitzgerald devoted himself to fathering the kid. Unluckily the son died in his late teens. Meanwhile, Fitzgerald's wealth was increasing all the time. He spent a lot on art works of the masters. Later Fitzgerald himself became seriously ill. Before his death, he had carefully prepared his will as to how his wealth would be settled——to sell his entire collection at an auction(拍卖）. Because of the large quantity and high quality of his collection, a huge crowd of possible buyers gathered for the auction. Many of them were museum directors and private collectors eager to bid（出价）. Before the auction, the art works were shown, among which was a painting of Fitzgerald's son by an unknown artist. Because of its poor quality, it received little attention.
When it was time for the auction, the auctioneer gaveled （敲槌）the crowd to attention. First the lawyer read from Fitzgerald's will that the first art work to be auctioned was the painting of his son. The poor-quality painting didn't receive any bidders except one——the old servant who had attended to the son and loved him, and who for emotional reasons offered the only bid. As soon as the servant bought the painting for less than one English pound, the auctioneer stopped the bidding and asked the lawyer to read again from the will. The crowd became quiet, and the lawyer read from the will: “Whoever buys the painting of my son gets all my collection.” Then the auction was over. 36. Fitzgerald was __________. A. a museum director B. a master of art C. an art auctioneer D. an art collector 37. Which of the following is TRUE according to the story? A. Fitzgerald took care of his son all by himself. B. Fitzgerald became seriously ill because of the death of his son. C. Fitzgerald lost his wife and his only son within 10 years. D. Fitzgerald decided to leave everything he had to his servant. 38. Fitzgerald's will showed __________. A. his desire to fool the bidders B. his invaluable love for his son C. his sadness at the death of his son D. his regret of having no heir (继承人） 39. What helped the old servant win the whole collection of Fitzgerald's? A. No more than one pound. B. Great increase of his wealth. C. His strong passion for art. D. His emotion for his young master. 40. At the result of the auction, the old man would feel more than ______________. A. surprised B. sad C. interested D. expected C We parents often take material things for love. “I give him everything,” a disappointed mother complains. “New shoes, video-games, and his own TV. You’d think he’d at least show me respect!” Of course, love and presents are related. Most parents work hard to earn money. They want their children to have more than they did and have better lives. The problem is, most children don’t connect the things parents buy with the labor that pays for them. Children have more, but our culture——and television in particular—— teaches them that more is never enough. Having more does not mean that a child feels
loved. From a parent’s point of view, children are not thankful. But this has to do with their natural growth. Young children see their parents as all-mighty(万能的). If parents fail to provide what they want, it must be a matter of choice. It’s normal for children, even school-age ones, not to be able to take another person’s point of view. For example, they may dislike their parents for working long hours, and not realize that the parent would also rather have more time at home. In addition to giving presents, we have to find other ways to express love and create memories. Reading or telling stories together, making music and playing games are all ways for families to spend time without spending money. Traditions like reading favorite poems and even snowball fights all serve the purpose（达到目的）. Most importantly, as parents, we have to learn to hold back some energy from our tiring jobs. When we’re present for our children, we ourselves become the presents we want to give. 41. The underlined word “them”( in Paragraph 2) refers to______________. A. parents B. children C. the things parents buy D. better lives 42. According to the passage, children______. A. want fewer presents B. are taught to ask for more C. want presents rather than love D. prefer their parents to work at home 43. We can judge from the passage that there is _________. A. misunderstanding between parents and children B. a heavy job load for some parents C. a lack of money in some families D. love between parents and children 44. The last sentence of the passage means that______. A. our children are good presents to us B. we ourselves need some presents C. we should spend more time with our children D. we should give more presents to our children 45. The best title for the passage is . A. Family Life B. Love and Presents C. Children’s Education D. Children and Parents D We know the westerners like to plan for their time carefully in order to do all the things that are important to them. So if your American or English friend asks you to dinner, he usually invites you a week ahead. But if you really have no time and can’t go to the dinner, you can ring him to say sorry. The dinner is usually served at home,
sometimes at a restaurant. You should get there on time, and don’t forget to put on your fine clothes. It is also a good idea to take some little presents to your friend, such as flowers, chocolates and so on. When you are at dinner, you should also observe(遵 守) some other customs.
