Week by week her list grew: I was very thin; I wasn’t a good student; I talked too much; I was too proud, and so on. I tried to bear all these as long as I could. At last, I became very angry. I ran to my father with tears in my eyes. He listened to me quietly. Then he asked, ―Are the things she says true or not? Janet, didn’t you ever wonder what you’re really like? Well, you now have that girl’s opinion. Go and make a list of everything she said and mark the points that are true. Pay no attention to the other things she said.‖ I did as he told me. To my great surprise, I discovered that about half the things were true. Some of them I couldn’t change (like being very thin), but a good number I could—and suddenly I wanted to change. For the first time I got a fairly clear picture of myself. I brought the list back to Daddy. He refused to take it. ―That’s just for you,‖ he said. ―You know better than anyone else the truth about yourself. But you have to learn to listen, not just close your ears in anger and feeling hurt. When something said about you is true, you’ll find it will be of help to you. Our world is full of people who think they know your duty. Don’t shut your ears. Listen to them all, but hear the truth and do what you know is the right thing to do.‖ Daddy’s advice has returned to me at many important moments. In my life, I’ve never had a better piece of advice. 56. What does ―Week by week her list grew‖ mean? A. Week by week she discovered more shortcomings of mine. B. Week by week the paper was filled with my shortcomings. C. Week by week I was having more and more shortcomings. D. Week by week my shortcomings grew more and more serious. 57. Why did her father listen to her quietly? A. Because he had been so angry with his daughter’s shortcomings that he wanted to show this by keeping silent for a while. B. Because he didn’t know what to do next. C. Because he wasn’t quite sure which girl was telling the truth. D. Because he thought what her daughter’s ―enemy‖ said might be true. 58. What did the father do after he had heard his daughter’s complaint? A. He told her not to pay any attention to what her ―enemy‖ had said. B. He criticized her and told her to overcome her shortcomings. C. He told her to write down all that her ―enemy‖ had said about her and pay attention only to the things that were true. D. He refused to take the list and did not show any interest in it. 59. What does ―I got a fairly clear picture of myself‖ mean? A. I had my picture taken and it was a clear one. B. Someone painted a clear picture of myself. C. I came to know myself clearly. D. The picture I got this time was clearer than those I had before.

60. Which do you think would be the best title for this passage? A. Not an Enemy, but the Best Friend. B. The Best Advice I’ve Ever Had. C. My Father. D. My Unforgettable Childhood. B It's really true what people say about English politeness: it's everywhere. When squeezing past someone in a narrow passage, people say "sorry". When getting off a bus, English passengers say "thank you" rather than the driver. In Germany, people would never dream of doing these things. After all, squeezing past others is sometimes unavoidable, and the bus driver is only doing his job. I used to think the same way, without questioning it, until I started traveling to the British Isles, and here are some more polite ways of interacting (交往) with people in UK. People thank each other everywhere in England, all the time. When people buy something in a shop, customer and retail assistant in most cases thank each other twice or more. In Germany, it would be exceptional to hear more than one thank you in such a conversation. British students thank their lecturers when leaving the room. English employers thank their employees for doing their jobs, as opposite to Germans, who would normally think that paying their workers money is already enough. Another thing I observed during my stay was that English people rarely criticize others. Even when I was working and mistakes were pointed out to me, my employers emphasized several times but none of their explanations were intended as criticism. It has been my impression that by avoiding criticism, English people are making an effort to make others feel comfortable. This also is showed in other ways. British men still open doors for women, and British men are more likely to treat women to a meal than German men. However, I do need to point out here that this applies to English men a bit more than it would to Scottish men! Yes, the latter are a bit tightfisted. 61. What is the author's attitude towards English politeness? A. He thinks it is artificial. B. He thinks little of it. C. He appreciates it very much. D. He thinks it goes too far. 62. What can be inferred from the passage? A. The author think it's unnecessary to say "thank you" to the bus driver. B. In Germany, employers often say "thank you" to employees for their job. C. German men never treat a woman to dinner. D. Germans think it is unnecessary to thank workers because payment is enough. 63. We can learn from the last paragraph that Scottish men _______. A. are more likely to be involved in a fighting. B. are as generous as English men. C. treat women in a polite way. D. are unwilling to spend money for women. 64. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? A. English drivers often say "thank you" to passengers when they get off the bus. B. In Germany, passengers sometimes say "thank you" to bus drivers. C. English people try to avoid criticizing others in the daily life. D. Germans are more considerate and polite than Englishmen. 65. The author develops the text through the method of A. making comparisons. B. telling stories. C. giving comments. D. giving reasons/examples. C Bicycle Safety Operation Always ride your bike in a safe, controlled manner on campus(校园). Obey rules and regulations. Watch out for walkers and other bicyclists, and always use your lights in dark conditions. Theft Prevention Always securely lock your bicycle to a bicycle rack---even if you are only away for a
5

minute. Register your bike with the University Department of Public Safety. It’s fast, easy, and free. Registration permanently records your serial number, which is useful in the possible recovery of the bike stolen. Equipment Brakes Make sure that they are in good working order and adjusted properly. Helmet A necessity, make sure your helmet meets current safety standards and fit properly. Lights Always have a front headlight---visible at least 500 feet in front of the bike. A taillight is a good idea. Rules of the Road Riding on Campus As a bicycle rider, you have a responsibility to ride only on streets and posted bicycle paths. Riding on sidewalks or other walkways can lead to a fine. The speed limit for bicycles on campus is 15mph, unless otherwise posted. Always give the right of ways to walkers. If you are involved in an accident, you are required to offer appropriate aid, call the Department of Public Safety and remain at the scene until the officer lets you go. Bicycle Parking Only park in areas reserved for bikes. Trees, handrails, hallways, and sign posts are not for bicycle parking, and parking in such posts can result in a fine. If Things Go Wrong If you break the rules, you will be fined. Besides violating rules while riding bicycles on campus, you could be fined for: No bicycle registration---------------------------------------------------$25 Bicycle parking banned--------------------------------------------------$30 Blocking path with bicycle ---------------------------------------------$40 Violation of bicycle equipment requirement -------------------------$35 66 Registration of your bicycle may help you _____________.

D In Western countries people have been using the installment (分期付款) plan since the first half of the twentieth century. Today, a large number of families in Great Britain buy furniture, household goods and cars by installments. In the U.S.A., the figure is much higher than in Great Britain, and people there spend over 10 percent of their income on the installment plan. The price of an article bought on installments is always higher than the price that would be paid by cash. There is a charge for interest. The buyer pays one quarter or one third of the price as a down payment ( 预付定 金) when the goods are delivered to him. He then makes regular payments, weekly or monthly, until the full
6

price is paid up. The legal ownership of the goods remains with the seller until the final payment has been made. Installment buying has advantages and disadvantages. It can help couples with small incomes to furnish their homes and start housekeeping. It increases the demand for goods, and in this way helps business and employment. There is, however, the danger that when business is bad, installment buying may end suddenly, making business much worse. This may result in a great increase in unemployment. If the people on the installment plan lose their jobs, they will probably not be able to make their payments. If great numbers of people are not able to pay their installment debts, there is a possibility that businessmen cannot collect their debts and will therefore lose money. If businessmen lose money or fail to make a satisfactory profit, it becomes more likely to have a depression (萧条). This is why, in some countries, the government controls the installment plan by fixing the amount of the down payment and installments to discourage people from buying more than they can pay for on the installment plan. 71. Which of the following is NOT TRUE about the installment plan? A. A lot of British families use the installment plan. B. More than 10 percent of American families buy things on installments. C. Americans depend more on installment than British people do. D. Americans spend one tenth of their income on installment buying. 72. Goods bought on installments are more expensive than goods bought by cash because A. the buyer has to pay extra money as interest. B. the delivery of the goods charges extra money. C. the buyer has to pay a down payment. D. the service offered by installment plan charged extra money. 73. What will happen to a buyer if he fails to make the full payment for an item bought on installments? A. He might lose his job. B. He will stop owning the item he has bought. C. He will have to sell what he has bought. D. He will go into debt. 74. The advantage of installment buying might include all the following EXCEPT that _____. A. purchasing power is strengthened. B. employment might be increased. C. people develop a good habit of saving money. D. young couples are able to furnish their homes. 75. In some countries, the governments control the installment plan to _____. A. increase employment. B. avoid depressions. C. ensure that businesses make good profits. D. ensure that people can pay for what they buy.

参考范文 Dear Sir, I'm writing to tell you something about our discussion on the topic―Whether Middle School Students Can Carry Mobile phones (Cell phones)" at the class meeting. Forty percent students agreed, for they thought it was convenient for them to communicate with their relatives and friends. They also thought they could surf the Internet to search for some information and store some useful information in the meantime. Besides, they could play games for rest if they feel tired after a long time's study. However, sixty percent of us were against it. They said the radiation of cellphones was harmful to health, and the ringing sound did somewhat affect the cellphone holders and others. Also, cellphones were luxurious things for middle school students and it was easy to lead them to compare with each other. As far as I am concerned, I agree with the majority. It is not suitable for middle school students to have cellphones. We can get in touch with others by other means and we can read more books to enrich ourselves. Best wishes.
