Popular music in America is what every student likes. Students carry small radios with earphones and listen to music before class, after class, and at lunch. Students with cars buy large speakers and play the music loudly as they drive on the streets. Adult drivers listen to music on the car radio as they drive to work. They also listen to the news about sports, the weather, politics, and activities of the American people. Most of the radio broadcast is music. Pop or popular music singers make much money. They make a CD or tape which radio stations use in every state. Once the popular singer is heard throughout the country, young people buy his or her tapes.

45. The underlined word “leg” probably means _____. A. the whole training B. the whole race C. part of the tour 46. When will the Brazilian Football Club play Beijing Guo’an Team? A. 4:30 a.m.. B. 5:30 a.m.. C. 4:30 p.m.. 47. Which telephone number will you call if you want to find something to do for Saturday afternoon? A. 46750278 B. 50123722 C. 71431771 D Robots have come a long way since 15th century. We’ ve got robots to build cars, carry heavy things, work in dangerous places and explore planets. But things haven’ t stopped there. In 1986, Honda made a robot called ASIMO. And now, it has been developed greatly. Standing at 130cm and weighing 54kg. ASIMO is very much like a small astronaut wearing a bag on the back. And he can walk, flight, climb and run fast. Isn’t it wonderful? The world’s first robot teacher is Saya. With her human-like face, she can show expressions like happiness, surprise, sadness, dislike, fear and she can even smile or show anger at students, which look much like a real teacher’s. To do this, her rubber skin is pulled from the back with motors inside. And her eyes and mouth have wires too. She can also say some simple words like “hello” or “thank you”. In the UK, the development of robots is exciting. The mini-robots will send food, clean floors, collect and throw away waste. These robots can open doors by themselves and stop if anything or anyone is in the way. These mini-robots are very useful for controlling infection(传染). Usually clean and dirty work is done by the same person, but here, you’ll have robots that do “dirty work”, like collecting dirty sheets, or taking away hospital waste; and you’ll have robots that do “clean work”, like bringing meals or clean sheets to patients. The robots have separate work so there’s no way for infection, which is great. But of course, robots would not take the piece of humans, but would free up more time for nurses to be with patients. But if this is what it’s like in 2011, what’s it going to be like to 2021? 48. In the following, which is ASIMO’s behavior? A. Smiling at people, saying “hello”. B. Sending food or opening doors by himself C. Fighting, climbing or running fast 49. What makes Saya look real? A. Her face and rich expressions. B. Her clothes and shoes. C. Her walking and running speed. 50. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. Robots have come a long way since 1986. B. If anyone or anything is in the way, mini-robots will stop. C. Saya looks like a small astronaut. 50. The main idea of Paragraph 5 is that _______.
A. nurses would have more free time with patients B. robots would not take the place of humans C. mini-robots are useful for controlling infection E Using too much water or throwing rubbish into our rivers are clear ways that humans can put our water supply in danger, but we also affect our water supply in less obvious(明显的) ways. You may wonder how paving(铺砌) a road can lead to less useable fresh water. A major part of the water we use every day is groundwater. Groundwater does not come from lakes or rivers. It come from underground. The more roads and parking lots we pave, the less water can flow into the ground to become groundwater. Human activity is not responsible for all water shortages(短缺). Drier climates are of course more likely to have droughts(干旱) than areas with more rainfall, but in any case, good management can help to make sure there is enough water to meet our basic needs . Thinking about the way we use water every day can make a big difference, too. In the United States, a family of four can use 1.5tons of water a day! This shows how much we depend on water to live, but there’s a lot we can do to lower the number. You can take steps to save water in your home. To start with, use the same glass for your drinking water all day. Wash it only once a day. Run your dishwasher (洗碗机)only when it is full. Help your parents fix any leaks in your home. You can even help to keep our water supply clean by recycling batteries instead of throwing them away . 52. Which of the following is most likely to lead to less groundwater ? A. Paving parking lots. B. Using river water . C. Throwing batteries away . 53. What can be inferred from the text ? A. All water shortages are due to human behavior . B. It takes a lot of effort to meet our water needs . C. There is much we can do to reduce family size . 54. The last paragraph is intended to . . A. show us how to fix leaks at home B. tell us how to run a dishwasher C. suggest what we do to save water at home 55. The text is mainly about . . A. why paving roads reduces our water B. how much we depend on water to live C. how human activity affects our water supply
