More American people take their troubles with them on holiday, according to a new survey. Although 40 percent said that the main reason for going away is to escape pressure (压力) from work, almost all said they worry more than they do at home. Only four in every 100 said that they are happy and free of care.
The most common worry is burglary ( 入室盗窃) , with four out of 10 worrying about their homes being broken into while they're abroad. More than a quarter fear they will feel crazy with some other noisy and rough holiday-makers and 22 percent worry they may be attacked or their possessions will be missing. One in five think the car may break down; and the same number worry about the chances of bad weather.
The survey also showed that the stay-at-home Americans are no more. Three out of every five want to have a holiday abroad, a great increase from the figures only three years ago. The hotel holiday is still a winner, with about one third of all Americana preferring to go on a self-catering ( 自助 ) holiday.
56. The underlined word "survey" in the first paragraph most probably means ______.
57. According to the text, about ___ of people worry more on holiday than when they are at home.
A. 25% B. 40%
C. 80% D. 95%
58. The third most common worry of American holiday-makers is that they may ______.
A. be attacked or lose their possessions
B. have problems with their cars on the road
C. have bad weather on holiday
D. get mixed with some rough fellow holiday-makers

B. In a quiet place.
C. At a friend's house.
D. Where they can cook for themselves.
When a rather dirty , poorly dressed person kneels at your feet and puts out his hands to beg for a few coins , do you hurry on , not knowing what to do , or do you feel sad and hurriedly hand over some money ? What should our attitude to beggars be ? There can be no question that the world is full of terribly sad stories . It must be terrible to have no idea where our next meal is going to come from . It seems cruel not to give some money to beggars.
Certainly , most of the world's great religions (宗教) order us to be open-hearted and share what we have with those less fortunate than ourselves .But has the world changed ?Maybe what was morally（道德方面）right in the old days ,when one knew exactly who in the village had suffered misfortune and needed help ,is no longer the best idea. Quite a few people will not give to beggars .Let us look at their arguments.
First ,some believe that many city beggars dress up on purpose to look pitiable and actually make a good living from begging .Giving to beggars only encourages this sort of evil(恶行).Secondly ,there is the worry that the money you give will be spent on beer ,wine or drugs .Thirdly ,there is the opinion that there is no real excuse for begging. One might be poor ,but that is no reason for losing one's sense of pride and self-dependence.
Related to this is the opinion that the problem should be dealt with by the government rather than ordinary people .Some people think beggars should go to the local government department and receive help.
It is hard to come to any final conclusion ;there are various cases and we must deal with them differently .A few coins can save a life in some situations ,and even if the money is wasted ,that does not take sway the moral goodness of the giver.
60．What is mainly discussed in the passage?
A．Moral deeds of people.
B．Religious activities of the church.
C．Moral goodness of the giver.
D．Arguments on giving to beggars.
61．What can we infer from the sentence "But has the world changed ?"in the second paragraph?
A．People no longer know who suffers misfortune in the village.
B．Some people will not do what was morally right in the past .
C．We don't meet with those who need help any more.
D．Now it is the government's duty to help the beggars.
62．Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage?
A．Some people dress up to pretend to be beggars .
B．Some beggars want money to help their children go to school.
C．Some beggars use the money to buy drugs.
D．Some beggars have no excuse for begging.
63．In the last paragraph ,the writer thinks that it is hard to come to any final conclusion ,because
A．the cases can be so different
B．there are so many beggars
C．there is so much money wasted
D．there are so many different arguments
Walk through the Amazon rainforest today and you will find it is steamy ,warm ,damp and thick .But if you had been around 15,000 years ago, during the last ice age ,would it have been the same ?For more than 30 years, scientists have been arguing about how rainforests like the Amazon might have reacted（反应）to the cold ,dry climates of the ice ages ,but until now ,no one has reached a satisfying answer.
Rainforests like the Amazon are important for mopping up CO2 from the atmosphere and helping to slow global warming . Currently the trees in the Amazon take in around 500 million tones of CO2 each year; equal to the total amount of CO2 giving off in the UK each year. But how will the Amazon react to future climate change? If it gets drier ,will it still survive and continue to draw down CO2 ?Scientists hope that they will be able to learn in advance how the rainforest will manage in the future by understanding how rainforests reacted to climate change in the past.
Unfortunately ,getting into the Amazon rainforest and collecting information are very difficult .To study past climate ,scientists need to look at fossilized pollen ,kept in lake muds .Going back to the last ice age means drilling deep down into lake sediments （沉淀物）,which requires specialized equipment and heavy machinery .There are very few roads and paths ,or places to land helicopters and aero planes .Rivers tend to be the easiest way to enter the forest ,but this still leaves vast areas between the rivers completely unsampled（未取样）.So far ,only a handful of cores have been drilled that go back to the last ice age and none of them provide enough information to prove how the Amazon rainforest reacts to climate change.
64．The underlined phrase "mopping up" in the second paragraph means ______
65．How will the Amazon rainforest react to future climate change?
A．It'll get drier and continue to remove CO2 .
B．It'll remain steamy ,warm ,damp and thick .
C．It'll get warmer and then colder and drier.
D．There is no exact answer up to present.
66．What's the main idea of the last paragraph?
A．It's important to drill deep down into lake sediments to collect information.
B．It's impossible to prove how climate changes in the Amazon rainforest.
C．It's hard to collect information for studies of the past climate in the Amazon rainforest.
D．It's necessary to have specialized equipment and machinery to study the past climate.
67．The best title for this passage may probably be ______.
A．Studies of the Amazon
B．Climates of the Amazon
C．Secrets of the Rainforests
D．Changes of the Rainforests

Do you have any strong opinion on co-educational or single-sex schools?
A supporter of co-educational schools would probably say that schools should be like the societies they belong to .In Hong Kong , men and women mix socially on a day-to-day basis .In many fields men are even likely to have female bosses .It is ,therefore, desirable that boys and girls grow up together ,go to school together ,and prepare themselves for a society that does not value sexual separation.
Some would go on to argue further that growing up with members of the opposite sex is important for personal development .Regular contact （接触）can remove the strange ideas about the opposite-sex and lead to more natural relationships .Single-sex conditions are seen as leading to more extreme opinions, and possibly even as encouraging homosexuality（同性恋）,though there is no proof that this is the case.
Those who are against coeducation often also fix their attention on the sexual side .Some parents fear that close contact with members of the opposite sex is dangerous for teenagers .They want their children to be attentive to their studies .Such parents feel uncomfortable with modern ways and the free mixing of the sexes.
A stronger argument comes from research into school results .Girls grow up earlier than boys ,tend to be more orderly and are likely to be better at languages .In a mixed class ,boys who might do well in a single-sex class become discouraged and take on the rule of troublemaker .Certainly in the UK this situation has greatly alarmed （惊动）the government for it to be encouraging co-educational schools to have some single-sex classes .In the UK the best schools are all single-sex ,strongly suggesting that co-education is not the best answer .This may ,however ,not be as simple as it looks .It may simply be that the famous old schools that attract the best students happen to be single-sex ,rather than that being single-sex makes them better schools.
72．In the third paragraph ,by saying "though there is no proof that this is the case" ,the writer means that ______
A．students in single-sex schools will certainly become homosexual
B．students in co-educational schools cannot have extreme opinions
C．students in co-educational schools are likely to be homosexual
D．single-sex school conditions may or may not have effects on the students.
73．All the following arguments can be found in the passage EXCEPT that ______.
A．co-education can produce a society-like situation
B．co-educational schools may lead to love affairs between boys and girls
C．co-education will help develop a better understanding about the opposite sex
D．co-education can make boys perform well in mixed classes
74．Alarmed by the situation ,the UK government encourages ______.
C．single-sex classes in co-educational schools
D．co-educational classes in single-sex schools
75．At the end of the passage the writer suggests that ______
A．single-sex schools are the best schools in the UK
B．being single-sex does not necessarily make a school better
C．co-educational schools are better for both sexes in personal development
D．because boys cannot compete with girls in study ,they go to single-sex schools

My Opinion on Cheating in Examinations
It is known to us all that some students cheat in examinations at school.
As students, we often take examinations at school, but sometimes we have too many examinations which are too difficult for us. On the other hand, some of us are lazy and don't work hard at their lessons. So when taking examinations, they sometimes cheat in order to get better results to please their parents and teachers.
In my opinion, it is wrong to cheat in examinations because it breaks the rules of schools, we students should be honest and try to get good results by studying hard instead of cheating in examinations. What's more, we should improve our study methods and get well prepared for examinations.
