Dear Sir, I have to travel every day from Souk Road to the airport. Two buses travel along their route: the number 49 and number 16. But by the time the number 16 bus reaches Souk Road it is always full, so I can’t get on it. I have to wait for the number 49, because sometimes there are empty seats on it. The timetable says that there are buses from Souk Road to the airport every ten minutes. If this is so, why do I have to wait half an hour for a bus nearly every day? The regulations (规章) say that if there are empty seats on a bus, the bus must stop at every stop where people are waiting. Why do the half-empty buses go straight past me when I am standing at the bus stop? The regulations say that no bus may carry more than 40 seated passengers and 20 standing passengers. Yesterday I was the first to get off the bus when it reached the airport. I counted the other passengers as they got off. There were 129 of them.
It is clear that our bus companies break the regulations and think little of their passengers. Can nothing be done to make your service better? Yours, Tired passenger 1. The writer has to take Bus No. 49 because______. A. it arrives on time C. it travels faster B. it is not always full D. it has fewer seats on it
2. The regulations say that each bus may carry ______ passengers at most. A. 20 B. 40 C. 60 D. 129
3. From the passage we can infer that the writer of the letter is probably ______. A. an airport worker C. a very tired traveler 4. What kind of letter is this passage? A. It’s a letter of thanks C. It’s a letter of introduction B. It’s a letter of apology D. It’s a letter of complaint B. a bus driver D. an English teacher
Many people believe Henry Ford invented the automobile. But Henry Ford did not start to build his first car until 1896. That was eleven years after two Germans developed the world's first automobile. Many people believe Henry Ford invented the production line that moved a car's parts to the worker, instead of making the worker move to the parts. That is not true, either. Many factory owners used methods of this kind before Ford. What Henry Ford did was to use other people's ideas and make them better. And he made the whole factory a moving production line. In the early days of the automobile, almost every car maker raced his cars. It was the best way of gaining public notice. Henry Ford decided to build a racing car. Ford's most famous race was his first one. It was also the last race in which he drove the car himself. The race was in 1901, at a field near Detroit. All of the most famous cars had entered, but only two were left: the Winton and Ford. The Winton was famous for its speed. Most people thought the race was over before it began. The Winton took an early lead. But halfway through the race, it began to lose power. Ford started to gain. And near the end of the race, he took the lead. Ford won the race and defeated the Winton. His name appeared in newspapers and he became well-known all over the United States. Within weeks of the race, Henry Ford formed a new automobile company. In 1903, a doctor in Detroit bought the first car from the company. That sale was the
beginning of Henry Ford's dream. Ford said: “I will build a motor car for the great mass of people. It will be large enough for the family, but small enough for one person to operate and care for. It will be built of the best materials. It will be built by the best men to be employed. And it will be built with the simplest plans that modern engineering can produce. It will be so low in price that no man making good money will be unable to own one.” The Model T was a car of that kind. It only cost $850. It was a simple machine that drivers could depend on. Doctors bought the Model T. So did farmers. Even criminals. They considered it the fastest and surest form of transportation. Americans loved the Model T. They wrote stories and songs about it. Thousands of Model T's were built in the first few years. 5. What do we know about Henry Ford from Paragraph 1 ? A. He made good use of ideas from others. B. He produced the first car in the world. C. He knew how to improve auto parts. D. He invented the production line. 6. Why did Henry Ford take part in the 1901 car race? A. To show off his driving skills. B. To draw public attention. C. To learn about new technology. D. To raise money for his new company. 7. What was Henry Ford's dream according to the text? A. Producing cars for average customers. B. Building racing cars of simple design. C. Designing more car models. D. Starting more companies.
The average American child spends three to five hours a day watching TV. In 1961, the average child began to watch television at age three; however, today it is nine months. Yet, most parents think that television has bad influence on their children. For example, in the early 1970s, my parents believed that my bad eyesight was the result of sitting too close to the screen, and they therefore made my stay at least six feet from it. Today, most people have no such worry, but many new ridiculous (荒谬的) sayings have appeared: *TV makes kids stupid. Many children watch more educational programs when they are pre-schoolers.
When they grow up, they can read more books and have much better ideas to solve difficult problems than other children. *TV makes kids violent. The real story is not so simple. Hundreds of studies show that watching violence on TV makes children more aggressive (好斗的). But a study of over 5,000 children also finds that some positive programs make children kinder. The problem is that kids are increasingly watching shows with violence instead of those suitable for their age. *Sitting around watching TV makes kids overweight. An experiment finds that when children watch less television, they do lose extra weight; however, reducing their television time does not make them more active. The real problem lies in snacking (吃零食), a widespread habit for kids, and junk-food advertisements. *TV helps kids get to sleep. The opposite is true. The more television children watch, the more likely they are to have irregular sleep and nap (小睡) patterns. Allowing kids to watch television is part of the problem, not the solution. 8. Which one is the advantage of educational TV programs? A. They will make children solve difficult problems better than others. B. they will improve children’s ability to get along with others. C. They are likely to make children more aggressive. D. They will make sure of children’s success in the future. 9. Why are children spending much time watching TV likely to be fat? A. Watching TV makes children lazy and inactive. B. Children are attracted by the food advertisement on TV. C. Watching TV doesn’t burn up as much fat as doing sports. D. Children like to snack while watching TV. 10. What influence does watching TV have on a child’s sleep? A. Children are likely to sleep deeper after watching TV. B. Children’s sleep time will be greatly reduced. C. It will make children form a bad habit of sleeping. D. It will make children sleep easier. 11. What is the purpose of this text? A. To increase people’s knowledge of watching TV. B. To warn parents of the disadvantages of watching TV.
C. To explain the bad influences that watching TV has on children. D. To correct parents’ wrong ideas of television’s effect on children.
When I was small and my grandmother died, I couldn’t understand why I had no tears. But that night when my dad tried to cheer me up, my laugh turned into crying. So it came as no surprise to learn that researchers believe crying and laughing come from the same part of the brain. Just as laughing has many health advantages, scientists are discovering that so, too, does crying. Whatever it takes for us to reduce pressure is important to our emotional (情感的) health, and crying seems to work well. One study found that 85 percent of women and 73 percent of men report feeling better after crying. Besides, tears attract help from other people. Researchers agree that when we cry, people around us become kinder and friendly and they are more ready to provide support and comfort. Tears also enable us to understand our emotions better; sometimes we don't even know we're very sad until we cry. We learn about our emotions through crying, and then we can deal with them. Just as crying can be healthy, not crying--- holding back tears of anger, pain or suffering--- can be bad for physical health, Studies have shown that too much control of emotions can lead to high blood pressure, heart problems and some other illnesses. If you have a health problem, doctors will certainly not ask you to cry. But when you feel like crying, don't fight it. It's a natural --- and healthy --- emotional response (反应). 12. Why didn't the author cry when her grandmother died? A. The author doesn’t give the explanation. B. Because she did not love her grandmother. C. Because she was too shy to cry at that time. D. Because her father did not want her to feel too sad. 13. It can be inferred from the text that ______. A. there are two ways to keep healthy B. crying does more good to health than laughing C. emotional health has close connection with physical health D. crying and laughing play the same roles 14. According to the author, which of the following statements is true? A. Crying is the best way to get help from others. B. Fighting back tears may cause some health problems.
C. We will never know our deep feelings unless we cry. D. We must cry if we want to reduce pressure. 15. What might be the most suitable title for the text? A. Power of Tears C. Why We Cry B. How to Keep Healthy D. A New Scientific Discovery

Big Ben takes its name from Sir Benjamin Hall in 1858, who was responsible for the making of the world-famous clock at that time. It not only has a very big size, but is extreme accurate as well. Official from Greenwich Observatory have the clock check twice a day. On BBC, you can hear a clock when it is striking because microphones are connected to the clock tower. Big Ben has hardly gone wrong up till now. Once, therefore, it failed to give the correct time. A painter who was worked on the tower hung a pot of paint on one of the hands and slowed them down! Yours, Mary
