      The destruction of habitats(栖息地)all over the world is the primary reason

      species are

      becoming extinct( 灭 绝 )or endangered.Houses,highways,dams,industrial


      ever-spreading farms now dominate 21 formerly occupied by forests,deserts,and


      22 the beginning of European settlement in America,23,over 65,000,000 acres of

      wetlands have been drained.One million acres alone vanished 24 1985 and 1995.

      Habitat destruction can be 25 or it can be subtle,occurring over a 26 period of time

      without being noticed.27 such as sewage from cities and chemical runoff from

      farms,can change

      the 28 and quantity of water in streams and rivers.To 29 living in a delicately


      habitat,this disturbance can be as 30 as the clear-cutting of a rainforest.

      31 remaining habitats are carved into smaller and smaller pockets or


      species are forced to exist in these 32 areas,which causes further habitat 33 .These

      species become less adaptable to environmental 34;in fact,they become 35 endangered.

      Scientists believe that when a habitat is cut by 90%,one-half of its plants,animals

      and insects will

      become extinct.

      Passage One

      Woman nabbed for a DUI at same crash spot

      Wed May 21,2:17 AM ET

      TRUCKEE,Calif.-Call it drunken driving deja vu(记忆幻觉).For the second time

      in five

      months,a 23-year-old California woman has been arrested after she crashed her car

      while driving

      under the influence(DUI)at the exact same spot north of Lake Tahoe.

      And to top it off,Truckee Police say that in both cases,her blood alcohol content

      was more

      than three times the legal limit.

      The police say Melissa Dennison of Truckee crashed at about noon on Sunday on


      Drive just south of the Glenshire Bridge.They say she was extremely drunk and had

      trouble standing

      or walking.Her blood alcohol level initially was measured at.346.The legal limit


      Sergeant J.Litchie said Dennison also had been charged with a DUI in January

      when she

      crashed at the same spot and registered a blood alcohol level of.380.If found guilty

      of the second

      offense,she faces up to 10 years in prison and fines in excess of$2,000.

      A telephone message the Associated Press left at a listing for Dennison in

      Truckee on Tuesday was not immediately returned.

      36.Who is the author of the passage?

      39.What does the word"nabbed”in the title mean?





      Passage Two

      There were many different cultures in the ancient world,but the two that had

      the most influence on European and American civilizations were the Greek and the

      Roman.Often these two cultures are lumped together in our minds,as if they were

      really exactly alike.But that is not the case.In many ways the Greeks and the Romans

      could not have been more different.

      The Greeks were truly democratic,often without a single leader but instead

      governed by a group of men chosen by the people.The Romans were semi-democratic.They

      had a governing Senate,but the political power was mostly or completely in the hands

      of a single emperor.

      Both cultures were great builders.But the construction interests of the two

      cultures were also different.The Greeks tended to be more artistic.Their buildings

      were well constructed and they were especially interested in temples,columns,and

      decorative forms.The Romans,on the other hand, were more engineers than artists.They

      concentrated their efforts on urban planning,well-functioning water pipes,and the

      best roads.

      Only in cooking and eating habits are the two cultures really similar.Both

      peoples ate very well indeed:lots of fish,fresh vegetables and fruits,healthy

      meals,holding at the same time long

      discussions and tasting excellent wines.

      In fact,it would probably be fair to say that they both loved life in their


      climates,and they both lived a full life.

      40.What is the first paragraph about?

      A.The Greek and the Roman were similar.

      B.People misunderstood European civilization.

      C.Greek civilization was quite different from Roman civilization.

      D.European civilization influenced American civilization greatly.

      41.Which of the following is TRUE?

      A.The Romans had more political awareness.w.

      B.The Romans had less political freedom and democracy..

      C.The Romans had more freedom to choose their leader.

      D.The Romans had fewer people elected into the government.

      42.What were the Greeks famous for?

      A.The overall planning of a city or a town.

      B.The artistic decoration of the buildings.

      C.The practical functions of the buildings.

      D.The system of water supply and transportation.

      43.How are the two cultures alike?

      A.Both loved the sea.

      B.Both lived long lives.

      C.Both loved cooking.

      D.Both enjoyed talking over meals.

      Passage Three

      As recently as three decades ago,many Americans believed that using credit was an

      unwise and

      dangerous way to pay for what they bought.Some even thought that owing money to a

      store or a

      credit company was something to be ashamed of.Good citizens,they believed,always

      bought what

      they wanted with real money and they paid the full price immediately.

      Today,however,all that has changed.Credit,as some observers have noted,has become


      way of life in the United States.More and more Americans now are depending on those

      small pieces

      of plastic,credit cards,to pay for large purchases such as televisions,record

      players or furniture.

      Many people today would consider it unusual not to use a credit card to pay for a

      costly restaurant

      dinner,a hotel room or an airline trip.And there are some situations in which

      Americans must have

      credit cards.If they want the temporary use of a car,for example,they first must

      give the car rental

      company the number of their credit card.That number is considered a guarantee that

      they will return

      the car and pay for using it.

      Credit cards offer two major services to Americans.First of all,they are easier and

      safer to

      carry than large amounts of money.Second,they permit people to borrow,to have the


      pleasure of owning something,even if they do not have enough money to pay for it

      at the time.With

      credit cards people pay for goods or services at the end of each month instead of

      when they buy them.

      And when the time does come to pay,most credit cards offer people a choice.They can

      pay all of

      what they owe for the month or they can just pay usually between 5 and 10 percent

      of what they owe.

      44.What do Americans feel about using credit cards nowadays according to the passage?

      A.They consider it valuable.dB.They regard it as a shame.

      C.They think it dangerous.

      D.They find .it quite convenient.

      45.Why does the car rental company ask for the credit card number?m

      A.To prevent the overuse of the car.

      B.To make sure that the car won't be damaged.

      C.To make sure the user return the car and pay for using it.

      D.To ensure that the car is safely and timely returned.

      46.What advantage can credit card holders have?

      A.They can choose not to pay for their purchases.

      B.They can easily borrow money at a lower interest.

      C.They can own something before they actually pay for it.

      D.They can pay only a small amount of what they owe.

      47.What is the best title for the passage?

      A.Credit-a Way of Life in America

      B.Credit Services in America

      C.Convenience of Living in America

      D.History of Credit Cards in America

      Passage Four

      At the 1893 Columbian Exposition,a World Fair held in Chicago,chocolate-making


      made in Germany was displayed.It caught the eye of M.S.Hershey,who saw the potential


      chocolate.He installed chocolate machinery in his factory in Lancaster,and produced

      his first

      chocolate bars in 1894.

      Other Americans began mixing in other materials to make up new candy bars

      throughout the end of the 1890's and the early 1900's.But it was World War l that

      really brought attention to the candy bar.

      The U.S.Army Quartermaster Corps requested various American chocolate

      manufacturers to

      provide 20 to 40 pound blocks of chocolate to be shipped to quartermaster bases.The

      blocks were cut into smaller pieces and distributed to American soldiers in

      Europe.Eventually the task of making smaller pieces was turned back to the

      manufacturers.By the end of the war when the soldiers arrived home,the American candy

      bar business was assured.Why?Because the returning soldiers had grown fond of

      chocolate candy and wanted more of the same.As a result,from that time on and through

      the 1920's,candy bar manufacturers became established throughout the United

      States,and as many as 40,000 different candy bars appeared on the scene.

      The original candy bar industry had its start on the eastern coast in such cities

      as Philadelphia,

      Boston,and New York.The industry soon spread to the Midwest because shipping and

      raw materials such as sugar,corn syrup,and milk were easily available.Chicago became

      the seat of the candy bar industry and is even today an important base.

      48.Why did M.S.Hershey start the production of chocolate bars?

      A.He was deeply impressed by the Columbian Exposition.

      B.He realized that it was possible for chocolate to become popular.

      C.There was nothing to produce in his factory in Lancaster.

      D.He was interested in the chocolate machinery displayed at the fair.

      49.Which event brought the booming of American candy bar business?

      A.The adding of new materials.

      B.The demand in the army during WWI.

      C.The purchase of new machines.

      D.The appearance of smaller candy bars.

      50.What does the underlined word "seat”in the last paragraph most probably mean?





      51.What is this passage mainly about?

      A.A World Fair held in Chicago in 1893.

      B.The popularity of the American candy bar industry.

      C.The candy bar industry during World War I.

      D.The spread of the candy bar business to the Midwest.

      Passage Five

      Mark Twain is one of America's much-beloved authors,creating imaginative and


      classics for children and adults alike,such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,The

      Prince and The

      Pauper,and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.Twain passed away in 1910,leaving behind

      a treasure

      of great literature.But now,100 years after his death,he'll have a brand-new book

      on the shelves:

      a three-volume autobiography.

      Twain hasn't been keeping busy in his tomb:it was his wish that publishers wait

      until 100

      years after his death to publish his memoirs(自传),which he spent the last decade

      of his life

      working on.

      The autobiography totals more than 5,000 pages,and likely won't be all sunshine

      and roses.It

      seems that Twain harbored some bitterness against former girlfriends and

      ex-friends.He also writes

      negatively about politicians of his day,such as Teddy Roosevelt.It's likely that

      he requested such

      a long lead time for the memoirs because he didn't want to hurt the feelings of anyone

      mentioned in

      this work.

      Although small sections of the memoirs have been previously published,the

      autobiography has

      never been available in full,and should provide great insights into the man behind

      the classic

      books.The first volume of the set will be available in November,and the trilogy is

      being published

      by the University of California,Berkeley.

      "There are so many biographies of Twain,and many of them have used bits and pieces

      of the

      autobiography,"editor Robert Hirst told The Independent.“But biographers pick and

      choose what

      bits to quote.By publishing Twain's book in full,we hope that people will be able

      to come to their

      own complete conclusions about what sort of a man he was.”

      52.According to Paragraph 1,which of the following statements is TRUE of Mark Twain?

      A.He left behind lots of money.

      B.His works were written for children.

      C.His works are full of adventures.

      D.He is famous for his great works.

      53.What can we learn about Mark Twain's autobiography from the passage?

      A.It has been published against Twain's will.

      B.It shows Twain's respect for politicians.

      C.It will be published in full.

      D.It has been recently finished.

      54.What does the underlined word“trilogy”in Paragraph 4 mean?

      A.A work in three volumes.

      B.An imaginative work.

      C.A collection of stories.

      D.Memoirs of famous people.

      55.What is the purpose of publishing Twain's autobiography?

      A.To supplement other biographies.

      B.To help readers to understand Mark Twain.

      C.To introduce Mark Twain's works.

      D.To expose new discoveries about Mark Twain.

      V.Daily Conversation(15 points)
