Although thought by many to be a phenomena of the 20th Century, crop circles and formations have been around for a very long time, and records even date back well before the invention of the camera.

The recorded incidence of crop circles in more modern times seems to have started in the early 20th century, with a gradual increase in numbers through to a marked increase in the 1960s,leading to a quite dramatic upturn in the 1990s.At least 190 formations were discovered and documented in 1999,perhaps an omen for what is to come in the new millennium.

There are many who are under the impression that crop circles are only indigenous to the U.K. Sure, they are more prevalent here than elsewhere in the world, but there are countless examples of them

appearing all over the world—in the USA from 1920,in Europe from the mid 20th century and in Africa, Canada, Australia, Central & Southern America, Russia in 1970,and Japan in the late 70s. Many visitors to the U.K. are amazed to discover that crop circles actually appear in their own country. What odds, that formations in the 21st century will be found on the surface of the Moon and Mars, and beyond? Yetis

Reported sightings of the mysterious creatures called Yetis (“Wildman”) are common at the Shennongjia National Nature Reserve, located between the Daba Mountains and the Wudang Mountains in western Hubei province. The existence and nature of such creatures are questions still being investigated by scientists from China, the former Soviet Union, and the United States. Many stories circulate about Yetis in Shennongjia. On February 6,1980,a young Yeti was reportedly spotted at Shennongjia. In March that same year a red-haired Yeti was seen sunning himself on a rock. Later that month, a red-haired creature was seen walking erect in the forest. Now many tourists hope to be lucky and see a Yeti for themselves. About UFO

UFOs are unidentified flying objects, but no one really knows what they are. Many researchers(called “ufologists”) have theories about what UFOs might be, but because no one can examine a UFO in a scientific laboratory, all of these ideas are really only educated guesses. We can offer a definition of UFOs, however, that you may find useful when you study the subject: A UFO is the reported sighting of an object or light seen in the sky or on land, whose appearance, actions, motions, lights, and colors do not have a logical, conventional, or natural explanation, and which cannot be explained, not only by the original witness, but by scientists or technical experts who try to make a common sense identification after examining the evidence.

Like pairs of dogs you can find in any neighborhood, these two loved each other and played together so often that they had worn a path through the grass of the field between their houses. One evening, Brownie’s family noticed that Brownie hadn’t returned home. They went looking for him with no success. Brownie didn’t show up the next day, and, although they made their efforts to find him, by the next week he was still missing. Curiously, Spotty showed up at Brownie’s house alone, barking and jumping. Busy with their own lives, they paid no attention to the nervous little neighbour dog. Finally, one morning Spotty refused to take “no” for an answer. Ted, Brownie’s owner, was continuously disturbed (打扰) by the angry, determined little dog. Spotty followed Ted about, barking all the time, then darting toward a nearby empty lot and back, as if to say, “Follow me! It’s urgent!” Eventually, Ted followed Spotty across the empty lot as Spotty stopped racing back and bark encouragingly. The little dog led the man to a deserted spot a half mile from the house. There Ted found his beloved Brownie alive, one of his legs crushed in a steel trap(圈套,陷阱). Frightened, Ted now wished he’d taken Spotty’s earlier appeals(呼吁) seriously. Then Ted noticed something. Spotty had done something else besides leading Brownie’s human owner to his trapped friend. In a circle around the injured dog, Ted found some food remains of every meal Brownie had been fed that week!Spotty had been visiting Brownie regularly, in the hope of keeping his friend alive. Spotty had actually stayed with Brownie to protect him from hunger and other dangers, and keep his spirits up. Brownie’s leg was carefully treated and he soon got well again. For many years there after the two families watched the faithful friends chasing each other down that well-worn path between their houses. 1. At the very beginning, Ted paid little attention to Spotty because________. A. he was not free at the moment B. he was sure Brownie would be OK C. he didn’t like Spotty at all D. his missing dog made him sad

2. The underlined word “darting” in the third paragraph can be replaced by_________. A. walking B. shouting C. rushing D. looking 3. After Ted was brought where Brownie was trapped, he__________. A. managed to free his dog at once B. was very thankful to Spotty C. regretted not following Spotty earlier D. was angry with the trapmaker 4. The BEST title for this passage might be . A. Dogs in Love B. A Friend in Need C. Humans & Dogs D. Dogs Are Loyal 5. We can infer from the passage that . A. humans and animals depend on each other for comfort B. it’s not right to hunt for animals in any neighborhood C. Ted has to take better care of his beloved dog later on D. Brownie would have died without Spotty’s timely help B (Mr. Jones,the owner of a farm,was one day driven out of the farm by all the animals he raised. The animals were excited to be free and independent. More important,they were masters of their own and,of
10

course,their farm. The animals made seven rules of their own and Snowball painted them on the wall.) THE SEVEN COMMANDMENT 1.Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. 2.Whatever goes upon four legs,or has wings,is a friend. 3.No animal shall wear clothes. 4.No animal shall sleep in a bed. 5.No animal shall drink alcohol. 6.No animal shall kill any other animal. 7.All animals are equal. It was very neatly written,and except that “friend” was written “friend” and one “S” was the wrong way round,the spelling was correct all the way through. Snowball read it aloud for the benefit of the others. All the animals nodded in complete agreement,and the cleverer ones at once began to learn the commandments by heart. “Now,comrades,”cried Snowball,throwing down the paintbrush,“to the hayfield!Let us make it a point of honor to get in the harvest more quickly than Jones and his men could do.” But at this moment the three cows,who had seemed uneasy for some time past,let out a loud lowing. They had not been milked for twenty four hours,and their udders were almost bursting. After a little thought,the pigs sent for buckets and milked the cows fairly successfully,their trotters(蹄子)being well adapted to this task. Soon there were five buckets of frothing creamy milk at which many of the animals looked with considerable interest. “What is going to happen to all that milk?”said someone. “Jones used sometimes to mix some of it in our food,”said one of the hens. “Never mind the milk,comrades!”cried Napoleon,placing himself in front of the buckets. “That will be attended to. The harvest is more important. Comrade Snowball will lead the way. I shall follow in a few minutes. Forward,comrades!The hay is waiting.” So the animals trooped down to the hayfield to begin the harvest,and when they came back in the evening it was noticed that the milk had disappeared. 6. Who is the leader of the animals? A. Snowball. B. Jones. C. Napoleon. D. Cows. 7. When does the story take place? A. In spring. B. In summer. C. In fall. D. In winter. 8. What can we infer from the story? A. The animals are having a revolution. B. The animals are doing a play. C. The animals don't think they are equal. D. The animals will live a harmonious life. 9.Who is indicated as the animals' enemy? A. The chicken. B. The human being. C. The cow. D. The pig. 4)Error-correction Last winter vacation, some of my classmates decide to 1.____________ travel with their friends, while I chose to take part-time job 2. ____________ to gain experience and earn some money. I learned from my 3.____________ teacher that a nearby company was looking after students 4._____________ with good handwriting to write address on envelope.

12

1.may/might 表示许可,否定式 may not。但表示“不可以、禁止、阻止”等时,或对于 may 提问的问句作 否定回答时,常用 must not 或 mustn't;表示“请求、 允许”时,might 比 may 的语气更委婉,而不表示 may 的 过去式,回答时,要用 may,而不用 might。如:? —Might I use your pen?? 我能用你的钢笔吗?? —Yes,you may.(No,you mustn't.)? 是的,可以。(不,不可以。)? 2.may/might 也可表示可能性或是对事物作出“不太肯定的推测”。如:? He may be very busy now.? 他现在可能很忙。? 3.may/might+动词原形:表示现在的可能性,或对现在情况作出的不太肯定的推测。? may/might+have done 表示对过去发生的情况的不太肯定的推测。如:?

He must have been to Shanghai because he knows Shanghai very well.? 他肯定去过上海因为他对上海非常熟悉。? 2.否定推测不能用 mustn't,因为 mustn't 是用来表示“禁止”的,而应用 can't/couldn't。疑问推测也可用 can/could。? “can/could not+动词原形”表示对现在情况的否定推测;“can/could+ not+ have done”表示对过去情况的 否定推测。如:? This cannot be done by him.? 这件事不可能是他做的。? He cannot have been to that town.? 他不可能去过那个小镇。? 情态动词 should/ought to+have done? should/ought to+ have done 表示“本应该做某事而没有做”。shouldn't/ought not to+ have done 表示“本不 应该做某事而做了”。如:?

Reading comprehension: For many people in the US, sports are not just for fun. They're almost a “religion”. Thousands of sports fans buy expensive tickets to watch their favorite teams and athletes play in person. Other fans watch the games at home,sticking to their TV sets,never missing a game. Many a wife becomes a “sports widow” during her husband's favorite season. Americans' devotion to sports has created a new class of wealthy people: professional athletes. Sports stars often receive milliondollar salaries. Some even make big money by appearing in advertisements for soft drinks,shoes and almost everything.

Error-correction: (10 mistakes) I often quarrel about my mother over whether I can watch TV after school. She holds view that Senior Three students have to make fully use of every minute to work hard at their lessons. It seems to me that once I am allowed to do that, I'll unable to control myself and forget all about my study. She also thinks it is bad for my eye. But I really can't accept her ideas. In my opinion, watch TV can set my mind at rest after a day's hard works. Besides, it is important for us to know what had happened at home and at abroad. Thus, we shouldn't be forbidden to watch TV. 4.

A As the sound of footsteps behind her grew louder,she quickened her pace. She didn't want to turn around as the memory of that morning's newspaper headline made her afraid of what she would see:“City Killer Claims Fourth Victim”. “Why did I stop for a few drinks in the bar after work?” she thought to herself. Now it was dark and the streets deserted. She was alone and a_sitting_duck. She felt as if she was walking in the rain. Her clothes were damp from nervous sweat and as each short hot breath hit the night air,it turned to steam,coating her glasses in a thin film so all she saw seemed
23

covered in fog. The footsteps were closer now. She needed to get off this street. Her eyes began a useless search for an open store or lighted window. Passing a small lane she looked through,for a possible escape route. But the lane was a dead-end and she laughed to herself at the irony. The sound of a car behind her turning onto the street interrupted her self-pity. Escape was at hand. But as she was about to throw herself onto the road and shout for the car to stop,the car's headlights cast a shadow that paralyzed her with terror. It was the footsteps' owner. The figure was huge and in its raised arm it held what looked like a lead-pipe,no doubt the one that was about to claim victim number five. The shadow dissolved as the car passed by and disappeared into the distance. She felt a hand on her shoulder. It was all happening as if in slow-motion. She was waiting for her life to flash before her eyes like all those novels said it would—but it didn't. The only thing she thought of was her dear husband. She recalled phoning him from work that very afternoon and joking about,of all things,the city killer. It was a night full of ironies. There was a voice talking to her now but she was lost in thoughts of her fate and didn't respond. The hand then began turning her around. It was surprisingly gentle given what was about to come. She allowed it to guide her without resistance. She looked up. She recognized the face,but she didn't know from where. Its mouth was still talking to her but she couldn't understand. Then she remembered. The face belonged to the foreign looking man who had served her at the bar. She looked down to his hand and saw in it not a lead-pipe but a rolled up copy of a work report she had been correcting in the bar as she drank. His words suddenly started to register in her brain and she could hear him. “Miss,Miss. Are you OK? You left this in the bar and it looked important so I thought I'd better give it to you.” 1. The woman was feeling nervous because ________. A. she had left her report in the bar B. there was a killer in the city C. she was being followed by someone D. the streets were dark and empty 2. The underlined expression “a sitting duck” (in Paragraph 2) is closest in meaning to“________”. A. an easy target B. a frightened person C. a foolish animal D. a still position 3. What is the correct order of events that happened to the woman on the day of the story? a. She went for a drink in a bar. b. She corrected the report. c. She heard loud footsteps. d. She read the newspaper. e. She called her husband. f. She felt a hand on her shoulder. A. d,c,a,e,b,f B. c,d,a,e,f,b C. d,a,b,e,c,f D. d,e,a,b,c,f 4. Why did the woman laugh when she looked into the lane? A. She was excited because she thought it may be a way to escape. B. She felt bitter because she had no chance to escape. C. She was becoming more and more nervous. D. She realized that she was behaving foolishly. 5. Which of the following can be inferred from the passage? A. It was raining when she left the bar. B. The woman had felt nervous about the city killer for days. C. The temperature was very low that evening. D. The woman was behaving unreasonably. B I used to watch her from my kitchen window. She seemed so small as she muscled her way through the crowd of boys on the playground. The school was across the street from our home and I would often
24

watch the kids as they played during break. I remember the first day I saw her playing basketball. I watched in wonder as she ran circles around the other kids. She managed to shoot jump shots just over their heads and into the net. The boys always tried to stop her but no one could. I began to notice her at other times, basketball in hand,playing alone. One day I asked her why she practiced so much. Without a moment of hesitation she said,“I want to go to college. The only way I can go is to get a scholarship. I am going to play college basketball. I want to be the best. My Daddy told me if the dream is big enough,the facts don't count.” Well,I had to give it to her—she was determined. I watched her through those junior high years and into high school. Every week, she led her school team to victory. One day in her senior year,I saw her sitting in the grass,head in her arms. I walked across the street and sat down in the cool grass beside her. Quietly I asked what was wrong. “Oh,nothing,” came a soft reply,“I am just too short.” The coach told her that at 5’5” she would probably never get to play for a top ranked team—much less offered a scholarship—so she should stop dreaming about college. She was heartbroken and I felt my own throat tighten as I sensed her disappointment. I asked her if she had talked to her dad about it yet. She told me that her father said those coaches were wrong. They just did not understand the power of a dream. He told her that if she truly wanted a scholarship and that nothing could stop her except one thing—her own attitude. The next year,as she and her team went to the Northern California Championship game,she was offered a scholarship and on the college team. She was going to get the college education that she had dreamed of. 6. The author was probably the girl's ________. A. neighbor B. friend C. mother D. teacher 7. Why was the girl heartbroken? A. She was considered too short to be a top player. B. Her coach stopped her training because of her height. C. She couldn't be on a college basketball team. D. She wouldn't be admitted by an ideal college. 8. We can learn from the passage that ________. A. her family wouldn't like to pay her college fee B. her father forced her to play basketball in college C. being a top basketball player can win her a scholarship for college D. she wouldn't like to turn to her father for help when in difficulty 9. Which word can best describe her father? A. Encouraging. B. Optimistic. C. Stubborn. D. Cruel. 10. Which proverb best matches the story? A. Practice makes perfect. B. Rome was not built in a day. C. Where there is a will,there is a way. D. Pride comes before a fall.

Their work may enable abandoned farms to become productive once more. Tim Flowers and Tony Yeo, from Sussex University's School of Biological Sciences, have spent several years researching how crops, such as rice, could be made to grow in water that has become salty. The pair have recently begun a three-year programme, funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, to establish which genes enable some plants to survive salty conditions. The aim
27

is to breed this capability into crops, starting with rice. It is estimated that each year more than 10 m hectares(公顷) of agricultural land are lost because salt gets into the soil and stunts(妨碍生长) plants. The problem is caused by several factors. In the tropics, mangroves(红树林) that create swamps(沼泽) and traditionally formed barriers to sea water have been cut down. In the Mediterranean, a series of droughts have caused the water table to drop, allowing sea water to seep(渗透)in. In Latin America, irrigation often causes problems when water is evaporated(蒸发) by the heat, leaving salt deposits behind. Excess salt then enters the plants and prevents them functioning normally. Heavy concentrations of minerals in the plants stop them drawing up the Water they need to survive. To overcome these problems, Flowers and Yeo decided to breed rice plants that take in very little salt and store what they do absorb in cells that do not affect the plants' growth. They have started to breed these characteristics into a new rice crop, but it will take about eight harvests before the resulting seeds are ready to be considered for commercial use. Once the characteristics for surviving salty soil are known, Flowers and Yeo will try to breed the appropriate genes into all manners of crops and plants. Land that has been abandoned to nature will then be able to bloom again, providing much needed food in the poorer countries of the world. 31. Which of the following statements about Flowers and Yeo is true? A. They are students at Sussex University. B. They are rice breeders. C. They are husband and wife. D. They are colleagues at an institution of higher learning. 32. Flowers and Yeo have started a programme_____________. A. to find ways to prevent water pollution B. to identify genes that promote growth in salty soil C. to breed rice plants that taste salty D. to find ways to remove excessive salt from soil 33. Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a cause of the problem discussed in the passage? A. Natural barriers to sea water have been destroyed. B. The water table has gone down after droughts. C. Sea level has been continuously rising. D. Evaporation of water leaves salt behind. 34. The word "affect" in Paragraph 6 could be best replaced by "_________” A. influence B. effect C. stop D. present 35. The attitude of the author towards the research project is__________. A. positive B. negative C. suspicious D. indifferent B If there is one thing certain to get Brazilians dancing in the streets on their feet, it is the Rio carnival (狂欢节). Held in Rio de Janeiro, the country's biggest city, the carnival began on February 20 when the mayor gave key of the city to Rei Momo--the lord of misrule(无序之皇) on his orders, each year people turn the city into a paradise of dance and music, the following six days are so fun of parades, street dancing, fantastic clothes and partying(聚会)that many people forget about eating and sleeping. "It was the passion of the carnival that attracted me to Brazil and made me settle down in Rio.” Said Bob Nadkarni, a British man who has lived 'in the city for several years for many Brazilians. The centerpiece of the carnival is samba(桑巴舞), a typical Brazilian dance. Every year, tens of thousands of visitors and locals show off their passion and energy in the streets. Following the beat(节拍)of the Latin music, the climax to this street party is the float(彩车)parade, in which floats decorated with tons of fresh flowers by various samba schools and local communities move through the city. On the top of each float stands the candidate .for the drum queen, who is chosen at the end
28

of the party. While most people are free to enjoy the celebrations, Rio's police officers have to keep a clear head. Following the murder of three officers in a gunfight early last week, the Brazilian government has tightened security in Rio. The street fighting, robbery and sex crimes that accompany the carnival are very difficult to the police. Carnivals began in ancient Rome as a celebration at which people fed wild wolves, in honor of the city's founder who was said to have been raised by a she-wolf. Brazil gave a new life to this tradition and so. Despite the trouble, the carnival will remain a symbol of the country's culture. 36. According to the passage, during the carnival people in Rio did all of the following except A. dancing in the streets B. putting on colorful clothes C. eating a lot of food D. holding exciting parades 37. How long does the carnival last? A. Six days. B. A whole week. C. Eight days. D. The whole of February. 38. The underlined word "centerpiece" in the 3rd paragraph means_________. A. the most important part B. the middle part C. the central part of the city D. the most attractive decoration 39. According to the passage, Bob Nadkami is_____________. A. a Brazilian who has come back from Britain B. a British man who visits Rio for the carnival C. a British man who has come to live in brazil D. a Brazilian who is attracted by the carnival 40. Which of the following statements is incorrect? A. The earliest carnivals were held in ancient Rome. B. Carnivals were originally a tradition of the Brazilians. C. Carnivals were originally a tradition of the Romans. D. the Brazilians have integrated the roman carnival into their culture. C Ford Abandons Electric Vehicles The Ford motor company’s abandonment of electric cars effectively signals the end of the road for the technology, analysts say. General Motors and Honda’ceased production of battery, powered cars in 1999, to focus on fuel cell and hybrid electric gasoline engines, which are more attractive to the consumer. Ford has now announced it will do the same. Three years ago, the company introduced the Think City two-seater car and a golf cart called the Neighbor. It hoped to sell 5,000 cars each year and 10,000 carts. But a lack of demand means only about 1,000 of the cars have been produced, and less than 1,700 carts have been sold so far in 2002. “The bottom line is we don't believe that this is the future of environment transport for the mass market.” Tim Holmes of Ford Europe said on Friday. "We feel we have given electric our best shot. " The Think City has a range of only about 53 miles and up to a six-hour battery recharge time. General Motors’ EVI electric vehicle also had a limited range of about 100 miles. The very expensive batteries also mean electric cars cost much more than petrol-powered alternatives. An electric Toyot~ RAV4 EV vehicle costs over $ 42,000 in the US, compared with just $17,000 for the petrol version. Toyota and Nissan... are now the only major auto manufacturers to produce electric vehicles. “There is a feeling that battery electric has been given its chance. Ford now has to move on with its hybrid program, and that is what we will be judging them on," Roger Higman, a senior transport campaigner at Uk Friends of the Earth, told the Environment News Service. Hybrid cars introduced by Toyota and Honda in the past few years have sold well. Hybrid engines Offer
29

greater mileage than petrol--only engines, and the batteries recharge themselves. Ford says it thinks Such vehicles will help it meet planned new guidelines "on vehicle emissions" in the US. However , it is not yet clear exactly what those guidelines will permit. In June, General Motors and Daimler Chrysler won a court injunction, delaying by two years Californian legislation requiring car-makers to offer 100,000 zero-emission and other low-emission vehicles in the state by 2003. Car manufacturers hope the legislation will be rewritten to allow for more low-emission, rather than zero-emission, vehicles. 41. What have the Ford motor company, General Motor's and Honda done concerning electric cars? A. They have started to produce electric cars. B. They have done extensive research on electric cars. C. They have given up producing electric cars. D. They have produced thousands of electric cars. 42. According to Tim Holmes of Ford Europe, battery-powered cars_________. A. will be the main transportation vehicles in the future B. will not he the main transportation vehicles in the future C. will be good to the environment in the future D. will replace petrol-powered vehicles in the future 43. Which auto manufacturers are still producing electric vehicles? A. Toyota and Nissan. B. General Motor’s and Honda. C. Ford and Toyota. D. Honda and Toyota. 44. According to the eighth paragraph, hybrid cars___________. A. offer fewer mileage than petrol driven cars B. run faster than petrol driven cars C. run more miles than D. offer more batteries than petrol driven cars 45. Which of the following is true about the hope of car manufacturers according to the last paragraph? A. Low-emission cars should be banned. B. Only zero-emission cars are allowed to run on motorways. C. The legislation will encourage car makers to produce more electric cars. D. The legislation will allow more 10w. emission to be produced. D More Than a Ride to School The national education association claims, "The school bus is a mirror of the community. "They further add that, unfortunately, what appears on the exterior(外部) does not always reflect the reality of a chosen community, they are right, and sometimes it reflects more! Just ask Liesl Denson. Riding the school bus has been more than a ride to school for Liesl. Bruce Hardy, school bus driver for Althouse Bus Company has been Liesl's bus driver since kindergarten. Last year when Liesl's family moved to Parkesburg, knowing her bus went by her new residence, she requested to ride the same bus. This year Liesl is a senior and will enjoy her last year riding the bus. She says, "It's been a great ride so far! My bus driver is so cool and has always been a good friend and a good listener. Sometimes when you're a child, adults do not think that what you have to say is important. Mr. Hardy always listens to what you have to say and makes you feel important. " Her friends Ashley Batista and Amanda Wolfe agree. Bruce Hardy has been making Octorara students feel special since 1975. This year he will celebrate 30 years working for Ahhouse Bus Company. Larry Althouse, president of the company, acknowledges Bruce Hardy's outstanding record: "You do not come by employees like Bruce these days. He has never missed a day of work and has a perfect driving record, recognized in 2000 by the Pennsylvania School Bus Association for driving 350,000 accident free
30

miles. Hardy’s reputation is made further evidence through the relationships he has made with the students that ride his bus.” Althouse further adds, “Althouse Bus Company was established 70 years ago and has been providing quality transportation ever since. My grandfather started the business with one bus. Althouse Bus Company is delighted to have the opportunity to bring distinctive and safe service to our local school and community and looks forward to continuing to provide quality service for many more years to come.” Three generations of business is not all the company has enjoyed. Thanks to drivers like Bruce Hardy, they have been building relationships through generations. Liesl’s mother Carol also enjoys fond memories of riding Bruce Hardy’s bus to the Octorara School District. 46. the word “mirror” in the first line could be best replaced by “__________”. A. vehicle B. device C. company D. reflection 47. How long has Bruce Hardy been working for Althouse Bus Company? A. For 30 years. B. For 70 years C. Since last year D. Since 2000. 48. Which of the following statements is NOT true of Bruce Hardy? A. He is cool B. He is good friend. C. He is impatient. D. He has driven 350,000 accident free miles. 49. Who founded Althouse Bus Company? A. Larry Althouse. B. Althouse’s grandfather. C. Liesl’s mother. D. Ashley Batista. 50. What has Althouse Bus Company been mainly aiming at? A. Making as much money as possible. B. Building up its fame. C. Developing its business. D. Providing the local community with quality service. 第四节 短文改错(共 10 小题;每小题 1.5 分,满分 15 分) Dear Ralph, I\'m a newcomer here of a small town. I would 51. ________ describe myself as shy and quietly.
