III、阅读理解 A The very wealthy English Baron Fitzgerald had only one child, a son, who understandably was the apple of his eye. His wife died when the child was in his early teens. So Fitzgerald devoted himself to fathering the kid. Unfortunately the son died in his late teens. Meanwhile, Fitzgerald's wealth greatly increased. He spent a lot on art works of the masters. Later Fitzgerald himself became seriously ill. Before his death, he had carefully prepared his will as to how his wealth would be settled-to sell his entire collection at an auction(拍卖）. Because of the large quantity and high quality of his collection, a huge crowd of possible buyers gathered for the auction. Many of them were museum directors and private collec tors eager to bid（出价）. Before the auction, the art works were shown, among which was a painting of Fitzgerald's son by an unknown artist. Because of its poor quality, it received little attention. When it was time for the auction, the auctioneer gaveled （敲槌） the crowd to attention. First the lawyer read from Fitzgerald's will that the first art work to be auctioned was the painting of his son. The poor-quality painting didn't receive any bidders. . . except one-the old servant who had served the son and loved him, and who for emotional reasons offered the only bid. As soon as the servant bought the painting for less than one English pound, the auctioneer stopped the bidding and asked the lawyer to read again from the will.
The crowd became quiet, and the lawyer read from the will: “Whoever buys the painting of my son gets all my collection. ”Then the auction was over. 41. The English Baron Fitzgerald was __________. A. a museum director B. a master of art C. an art collector D. a n art dealer 42. Why did the old servant bid for the painting of Fitzgerald's son? A. He was devoted to the family. B. He saw that no one bid for it. C. He knew the content of the will. D. He found it cheap for him to buy. 43. Fitzgerald's will showed __________. A. his desire to fool the bidders B. his invaluable love for his son C. his sadness at the death of his son D. his regret of having no children to take over his wealth 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. 44. What is the prob able number of American farms? A. 10 million. B. 1 million. C. 10 thousand. D. 100 thousand. 45. 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. 46. 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 governmen t aid. C. Only profitable farms can get the government aid. D. F armers growing crops like corn and cotton may get the government aid easily. C Have you ever heard your own voice？ “Of course,” you say． Has anyone else ever heard your voice？ Again you say， “Of course.” But that's not quite true． Nobody else has ever heard your voice—the way you hear it． When you talk， you set up sound waves． The air outside your head carries the sound waves to your outer ears． But， of course， the sound of your voice begins inside your head． The bones of your head pick up the sound waves， too． They carry the sound waves straight to your inner ears． You get the sound from the outside and the inside too． Other people get just the sound waves from the outside． That is why they don't hear your voice the way you do． 47.You ________ hear your voice the same way others hear it． A ． can't B ． seldom C ． sometimes D．always 48.Sound travels in the form of __________． A．bones B．air C．waves D．voice 49.When you talk， sound waves are set up inside _________． A ． your inner ears B ． your outer ears C ． your head D．your head bones 50.The underlined phrase “pick up” here means _________． A ． to raise B ． to gain C ． to select D．to pull 51.The passage is mainly about __________． A．waves in the air B．the way you hear your own voice C．voice spreading far and wide D．the different way people hear their voices D Monkeys are very similar to us in many ways．Most have ten fingers and ten toes， and brains much like ours．In fact，Charles Darwin's theory of evolution says that monkeys and humans share a common ancestor．We enjoy watching them because they often act like us，and we also love to use many expressions about monkeys in almost every language This is why many monkey expressions are about tricky people or playful acts． Monkeyshine is one of these expressions to show tricks or foolish acts．The meaning is clear if you have ever watched a group of monkeys playfully chasing each other： pulling tails，stealing food，doing tricks．
Monkeying around with something means that you do not know what you are doing．When you feel like doing something but have no firm idea of what to do，you are monkeying around. It is just a way to pass the time． Monkey business usually means secret，maybe illegal activities You may come across a news report that there is monkey business involved in building the new airport， with some officials getting secret payments from builders． Monkey suits are common names for clothes or uniforms soldiers wear．In earlier years in many American cities， you would find men playing musical hand organs on the street．Dancing to the music would be the man's small monkey that was dressed in a tight—fitting，colorful jacket similar to a military uniform．So，people began to call a military uniform a monkey suit． 52．Which of the following is NOT true about the similarities between humans and monkeys? A．Most monkeys have ten fingers and ten toes． B．Monkeys have the same brains as humans． C．Monkeys often act like humans in many ways． D．Monkeys are humans closest relatives in species． 53．According to the passage，an idle wander（徘徊）on the street can he described as A．monkeyshine B．monkeying around C．monkey suit D．monkey business 54.Monkey suits are commonly used to call military uniforms because they . A．are created particularly for soldiers' uniforms B．are originally designed for American soldiers C．share typical features with military uniforms D．make American soldiers look like monkeys 55．Most monkey expressions are ． A．used only in western cultures B．used on some formal occasions C．about tricks and naughtiness D．about terrible funny behaviors E 56. A study of art history might be a good way to learn more about a culture than is possible to learn in general his tory classes. Most typical history courses concentrate on politics, economics, and war. But art history focuses on much more than this because art reflects not only the political values of a people, but also religious beliefs, emotions, and psychology. 57. In addition, information about the daily activities of our ancestors – or of people very different from our own — can be provided by art. In short, art express the essential qualities of a time and a place, and a study of it clearly offer us a deeper understanding than can be found in most history books. 58. In history books, objective information about the political life of a country is presented; that is, facts about politics are given, but opinions are not expressed.
Art, on the other hand, is subjective: it reflects emotions and opinions. The great Spanish painter Francisco Goya was perhaps the first truly “ political” artist. In his well- known painting The Third of May 1808, he criticized the Spanish government for its misuse of power over people. 59. In the same way, art can reflect a culture's religious beliefs. For hundreds of years in Europe, religious art was almost the only type of art that existed. Churches and other religious buildings were filled with paintings that depicted people and stories from the Bible. Although most people couldn't read, they could still understand biblical stories in the pictures on c hurch walls. 60. By contrast, one of the main characteristics of art in the Middle East was ( and still is) its absence of human and animal images. This reflects the Islamic belief that statues are unholy.
