More than two thousand years ago the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle defined (定义) jokes as the pleasure that results from a feeling of triumph by showing we’re better than someone else in a certain way. According to Aristotle and many other philosophers,all jokes depend mainly on showing inferiority in another person or group of persons — that is,putting it clearly,on showing that they are worse off than ourselves. Jokes raise our good opinion of ourselves at someone else’s expense. Showing how much better than other people we are is only one reason we like jokes. Someone may also use a joke to express their anger or their cruelty or any other kind of action that is not acceptable to us. We feel free to laugh when we hear about someone sliding on a banana skin. The joke lets us express those attitudes which are usually unacceptable to society. This is probably the reason why some of the jokes,especially those involving cruelty,are so popular with certain people. Besides,all jokes depend on our enjoyment of laughing at something that is strange and out of place because it’s different from things which are happening around it. The same situation can be either sad or pleasant,depending entirely on how strange and out of place it is. If a girl in a bathing suit falls into a swimming pool,we don’t laugh because nothing unusual has happened. But if a man in a smart suit falls in,the situation is at once unusual in a pleasant way and we laugh. A good joke-teller will always try to build up a situation in which one thing is expected until something unexpected suddenly happens,and so we laugh. 41. The underlined word “inferiority” (in Paragraph 1) means ______. A. something that is not as good as something else B. something that is better than something else C. someone that is not as good as someone else D. someone that is better than someone else 42. According to Aristotle, all jokes depend mainly on ______. A. showing inferiority in another person or group B. resulting in a sense of success

3

C. having a good opinion of other people D. making people laugh unexpectedly 43 What’s the main idea of Paragraph 2? A. Showing we are better than other people is the only one reason we like jokes. B. When people are angry, they would like to hear jokes. C. People who like jokes are usually cruel. D. To express those attitudes usually unacceptable to society is one of the reasons we like jokes. 44. What will a good joke-teller always try to do? A. Make a sad situation into a pleasant one. B. Make different things happen at the same time. C. Make an unexpected thing happen in an expected situation. D. Make people laugh at something unusual and out of place. B 2004 was a good year for American farmers. Total farm earnings were estimated (估 计) at 74,000 million dollars for the year. That means the average(平均的) farm income was about 71,000 dollars, or a gain of about three percent from the year before. However, the growth in earnings depended on the size of the farm. Large farms had increased earnings of six and one-half percent. Smaller farms saw growth in earnings of less than three percent. Part of American farm income came from the federal (联邦的) government. The Department of Agriculture reports that about thirty-nine percent of farmers accepted some kind of aid(援助), or subsidy in 2003. Reports say the total amount of farm aid paid last year is estimated at 15,700 million dollars. An organization called the Environmental Working Group keeps information on all farm subsidies paid by the government. The group examined subsidies between 1995 and 2003. It says ten percent of farms received seventy-two percent of government subsidies during that nine-year period. The group says big farms that are organized as corporations (公司) or partnership businesses receive the most aid. It says the big farms receive more aid, even when they are more profitable(盈利的) than smaller family farms. Critics(评论家) say farm subsidies are costly and wasteful. Critics also note that subsidies go only to growers of widely traded crops, like corn, cotton, wheat and soybean. But many farmers, including the ones who only receive a few thousand dollars a year, support the subsidy programs. They say small farming communities in states like Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota would not survive without the aid. 45. What is the probable number of American farms? A. 10 million. B. 1 million. C. 10 thousand. D. 100 thousand. 46. Why was 2004 a good year for American farmers? A. American farmers’ earnings increased a lot in 2004.

B. The federal government gave American farmers more aid in 2004. C. Big farms were organized as partnership businesses in 2004. D. The federal government reduced farmers’ taxes in 2004. 47. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. All American farmers can get the government aid. B. Only big farms can get the government aid. C. Only profitable farms can get the government aid. D. Farmers growing crops like corn and cotton may get the government aid easily. c A large number of women in Western European countries wish that they were born men. The number is said as high as 60% in West Germany. “Women often wish that they had the same chance as men have, and believe it is still men’s world,” said Dr James Holden, one of the scientists who did the study. Anne Harper has a very good job for an international oil company. She also believes in “Women’ s Liberation(解放)”. “I don’t wish that I were a man,” she says, “and I don’t think many women do. But I do wish that people would stop looking down upon us women. At work, for example, we often do the work that men do but get paid less. There are still a lot of jobs that are usually the best ones and open only to men. If you’re a man, you have a much better chance of leading an exciting life. How many women pilots are there ... or engineers or scientists?” 48. What can we learn from the first paragraph? A. 60% Western European women wish that they were born men. B. Most women in Western European countries wish that their babies were all boys. C. 60% women in West Germany wish that they were born men.

There’re more men scientists or engineers than women scientists or engineers in the world C. Women cannot live without men D. Women have not been given the same chance as men 50.

A. has got a very good job B. believes in “Women’s Liberation” C. does the work that a man can’t do D. isn’t looked down upon by anyone 52. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A. Usually the best jobs are not open to women. B. Women are less paid than men for the same job. C. There’re more men pilots, engineers and scientists than women ones. D. Women are looked down upon because they’re the second-class citizens.

D There is one language that is used in every country in the world. The people who use it are young and old, short and tall, thin and fat. It is everybody’s second language. It is easy to understand, although you can’t hear it. It is sign language. When you wave to a friend who is across the street, you are using sign language. When you smile at someone, you are saying, “I want to be friendly”, but you are not using speech. You are using sign language. When you raise your hand in class, you are saying, “Please ask me. I think I know the correct answer.” Babies who can’t talk can point at things. They are using sign language. A policeman who wants to stop traffic holds up his hands. He is using sign language. Many years ago, a French priest, Charles Michel de Epee, became interested in education for deaf people. He invented a finger alphabet (字母表). It is still in use. People can make the sign for letters and spell words with their hands, and deaf people can read and understand them. Soon there were schools for the deaf in many countries. The only university for the deaf is Gallaudet College in Washington, D.C. Today, in the United States, there are special TV news programs for deaf people. The newsreader tells the news in sign language. At the same time, the words appear on the TV screen. The actors in the Theatre of Deaf don’t spell every word. Sometimes they use hand signs. When they put two hands together, it means sandwich. They can make a roof with their hands when they want to show a house. One finger in front of an actor’s mouth can mean quiet. You can talk to people who are behind windows that are closed. And when you go swimming with your friends, you can have conversations under water. How many hand signs do you use every day? 53. Which of the following about sign language is TRUE? A. It is a special language used in a few countries in the world. B. It is a way to express one’s ideas without words. C. It is only used by the deaf. D. It can be heard. 54. If you want to express the idea that “I am very friendly” to someone, you will ______.
