NO.1 As is known to all, many things can be measured in terms of data. Sometimes data can indeed tell the truth. With the help of data we can easily know the price of a can of Coke in the sup
ermarket or the result of a football match. 71______ What is more important, data seem to be fairer than words or statements. If the data are true, we don' t have to worry about being cheated. Nowadays, as lies exist in the world, data are expected to tell the truth. Therefore, many of us would rather believe data. On the other hand', if we judge things only by data from the so -c alled specific research， aren't we a little too narrow-minded? Many people often treat the so -called specific data unwisely just to make sure that they are making the right decisions. 72 ______For example，how can you tell that somebody isn't a good student just because he or she doesn’t get high marks in the final examination? 73______ For example，the degree of your feeling happy in your life， the depth of love between you and your friends, and the faith you have in your country. We can only feel them in our hearts but can never express them in data. There is no doubt that analyzing the exact data is important to assessment of an actual event. But data should be dealt with wisely. We often get wrong data which mislead us. 74______Remember, data have no feeling but we humans have. Data do not mean much to people if we do not have the abilities to analyze the data with the knowledge and confidence to judge whether they are true or false. 75______ Data are data after all. Life is much more colorful than the pale data. So give the cold data a warm heart and we' 11 find that the world is far more wonderful than the pale data can describe. A. We should try our best to be wise thinkers.
B. Data can make our life easier and more comfortable. C. But sometimes we may find that data aren't everything. D. Sometimes our hearts and mind are more sensitive than data. E. Now and then the so-called specific data puzzle us very much. F. The exact data should come from assessment of an actual event. G. There are many things in our life which cannot be measured by data.
NO.2 It doesn’t come as a surprise to you to realize that it makes no difference what you read or study if you can’t remember it. You just waste your valuable time. ___71___ One dependable aid that does help you remember what you study is to have a specific purpose or reason for reading. Why does a clerk in a store go away when your reply to her offer to help is, ―No, thank you. I’m just looking.‖? Both you and she know that if you aren’t sure what you want, you are not likely to find it. But suppose you say instead, ―Yes, thank you. I want a pair of sun glasses.‖ She says, ―Right this way, please.‖ ___72___ If you choose a book, ―just looking‖ for nothing in particular, you are likely to get just that — nothing. But if you do know what you want, you are almost sure to get it. Your reasons will vary; they will include reading or studying ―to find out more about‖, ―to understand the reasons for‖ and ―to find out how‖. ___73___ Before you start to study, you say to yourself something like this, ―I want to know why Stephen Vincent Benet happened to write about America‖. Because you know why you are reading or studying, you relate the information to your purpose and remember it better. ___74___ At least two important processes go on at the same time. As you read, you take in ideas rapidly and accurately. But at the same time you express your own ideas to yourself as you react to what you read. You have a kind of mental conversation with the author. This additional process of thinking about what you read includes evaluating it, relating it to what you already know, and using it for your own purposes. ___75___ One part of critical reading, as you have discovered, is distinguishing between facts and opinions. Facts can be checked by evidence. Opinions are one’s own personal reactions. Another part of critical reading is judging sources. Still another part is drawing accurate inferences.
A. Maybe you have already discovered some clever ways to keep yourself from forgetting. B. It is important for students to have a positive attitude to their study. C. You remember better when you know what you are reading. D. In other words, a good reader is a critical reader. E. It’s quite the same with your studying.
F. Reading is not one single activity. G. This is the way it works.

met on the campus just signed on with Trilogy, right at that table on the grass, with the recruiters who do not "recruit．" _74_ I once asked one young man why he was going to a smaller city in Texas．The company is excellent, he told me．There are also terrific people and the work is challenging．Though he had several good job offers from Pittsburgh' s high tech firms and knew the city well, he said he felt the city lacked the lifestyle options, cultural diversity, and tolerant attitude that would make it attractive to him． _75__ He is a member of what I call the creative class: a fast - growing, highly educated, and well - paid part of the workforce．They do not consciously think of themselves as a class．Yet they share a common attitude that values creativity, individuality, difference, and advantage． A．An obvious lazy guy avoiding work, I thought.

G．This young man represents a lively new force in the economy and life of America.

Have your favorite-meal and stay quiet after that?_ 71 But it never lets you know, because, you keep it busy thinking about your friends or favorite stars．So it silently serves your needs and never lets itself grow． When mind loses its freedom to grow． creativity sets a full stop． This might be the reason why we all sometimes think "What happens next?", "Why can't I think?" 72 Why reading but not watching TV?

NO.8 If you have ever been in a school play or even made believe you were a doctor, detective, or a space traveler, you know the enjoyment that acting brings. Almost all of us have the wish to play the part of someone—or something—else. 71 In the ancient world, acting was often associated with religious ceremonies and other special occasions. As far back as 2200 B.C. trained Chinese actors performed ceremonial dances in costume and makeup at harvest festivals. 72 To the dance was gradually added pantomime—the imitation of movements and gestures—as well as the wearing of masks, the singing of chants, and finally the use of dialogue. While acting was coming into its own in the ancient Chinese classical theatre, it was doing the same in the western world, in Greece. From about 500 B.C. on, acting became a highly specialized art in Greece. Greek actors, however, still wore masks, and their motions were largely fixed by custom. 73 Modern acting, by contrast, gives the individual actor great opportunity to develop his or her personal talents for serious, comic, or musical drama. The names, faces, and styles of famous movie actors are known worldwide. 74 A special form of acting takes place in radio drama, which was highly popular before television. In radio drama the actors face an unique challenge. They are unseen by their audience. So they must rely on voice alone to make their characters real to the listeners. 75 Only forty percent of Broadway actors are employed, most of them for only part of the year. Those who become stars need not only talent, but determination. They must not be easily discouraged. Otherwise, they might give up before the opportunity for stardom presents itself. A. The origins of acting are in the act of remembering. B. Drama in Greece began with festivals honoring Dionysus. C. It is believed that this was the first step in the development of acting. D. Historical records indicate that this desire is as old as civilization itself. E. Acting is not, as many people think, a quick, easy road to fame and riches. F. Broadway and television provide other stages on which actors can display their talent. G. Consequently, they had little opportunity to demonstrate their individual personalities.
