It may seem strange that ice itself sometimes can protect crops from frost (霜 冻)! Some growers actually spray their crops with water on a freezing night. Water freezes quickly on the plants and then a strange thing happens. As long as ice stays wet, it can't get colder than 0 ℃, a temperature many plants can stand. If the ice ever became entirely frozen and dry, it might drop many degrees lower, ruining (毁 坏) the plants. But continually spraying water on the ice, the growers keep it from going below 0 °C even if the air is much colder. This may be unbelievable but it saves the plants. This strange kind of "ice blanket" works only on plants that are strong enough to stand the weight of frozen spray. The system is used even to protect banana plants on some Central American plantations. 36. As used in this passage, "ice blanket" means A. a cold blanket C. a covering of ice B. a spray of frost D. a warm blanket
37. This passage is intended__________. A. to explain why some plants can withstand (耐) ice B. to show how ice forms C. to show that frost can be prevented D. to give tips(窍门) on preserving (保护) crops 38. It can be concluded from the passage that ice would not protect ____________ from frost. A. banana trees B. pine trees C. tender rose bushes D. apple orchards (果园) 39. The best title would be__________. A. Frost Triumphs Again B. Ice Can be Nice C. Battle of the Farmer D. The Helpless Plant
B I was very disappointed not to be able to go to the jazz concert last Friday. The advertisement in the paper said that you could buy tickets at the theatre box in Richland Hill any day between 10:00 and 4:00. Since I work from 9: 00 to 5:30, the only time I could go to the theatre was during my 45-minute lunch break. Unfortunately, the theatre is on the other side of the town, and the bus service between my office and Richland Hill is not very good. But if you are lucky you can make the round trip in 45 minutes. Last Monday, I stood at the bus stop for fifteen minutes waiting for the bus. By the time I saw one come round the corner, there was not enough time left to make the trip. So I gave up and went back to the office. The same thing happened on Tuesday, and again the next day. On Thursday, my luck changed. I got on a bus right away and arrived at the theatre in exactly twenty minutes. When I got there, however, I found a long line of people at the box office. I heard one man said he had been waiting in line for over an hour. Realizing I would not have enough time to wait in line, I caught the next bus and headed back across the town. By Friday I realized my only hope was to make the trip by taxi. It was expensive, but I felt it would be worth it to hear the concert. The trip by taxi only took 10 minutes, but it felt like an hour to me. When I got to the theatre, I was relieved to see that nobody was waiting in line. The reason, however, I quickly discovered, was that they had already sold all the tickets. 40. The man learned ___________ that there would be a concert last Friday. A. from his friends B. from one of his workmates C. over the radio D. from the newspaper 41. He tried to go to the theatre every day but managed to get there only__________. A. once C. three times A. surprised C. puzzled A. a good concert B. the bad bus service in the city C. the difficulty of getting a ticket for a concert D. someone's disappointment (失望) at missing a concert B. twice D. four times B. pleased D. sorry
42. The underlined word "relieved" may best be replaced by__________.
43. The story is mainly about__________.
