（阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项中，选出最佳答案，共 20 小题。每小题 2 分，满分 40 分。） （ A ） Now, We're always hearing about road accidents 事故,and when we're in a car we try to drive carefully, but how many of us take the same degree of care in our homes? Any large hospital will tell you the number of accidents that happen in the home is almost the same as those on the road. I don't pretend to be an expert, but I've thought a lot about how and why these accidents happen and what we can do to prevent them. One of the commonest and most dangerous causes of home accidents is wrong and careless use of electrical equipment 设备. People will continue to use a loose plug or pull out a plug without first turning off the power. In spite of warnings, one will carry an electric heater 电炉 into the bathroom when he is going to have a bath. Sometimes one forgets to cut off the power before mending a lamp or some thing else. All this will cause accidents. So the rule about anything that works by electricity is: Switch off before you touch anything and don't pretend you know when you actually don't.
If you've got children in the house, it's always best to keep medicines of any kind out of their reach. Otherwise, they may be taken for candies or a new kind of drink. When there are older people living with you, you have to take particular care in a number of ways in order to make them safe and happy. Fire, of course, is always a risk. So, remember not to dry clothes in front of fires, or leave stoves in the middle of rooms where they can easily be knocked over. And don't forget to keep the children away from fire. Smoking, too, may cause fire. So you'd better give it up. Safety First may mean a little more time and care, but it may save you a lot of trouble. 36. The writer thinks the reason why there are so many accidents in our homes is that we are ____. A. less careful in our homes than in a car B. more careful in our homes than in a car C. as careful in our homes as in a car D. not so careful in a car as in our homes 37. One of the most dangerous and most common causes of home accidents is ____. A. continuing to use loose plugs B. taking a bath with an electric heater in the room C. mending a lamp without cutting off the power D. using electrical equipment in an improper way 38. The writer advises you ____ about the use of electrical equipment. A. to appear as if you know everything B. to pretend that you don't know anything C. to pretend that you know everything D. not to think you know everything 39. It's best to keep medicines in places that children can't ____. A. get on B. get to C. get in D. get over 40. One way to prevent fires at home is to _____. A. leave stoves in the middle of the rooms B. dry clothes near stoves C. tell children to stay away from fire D. smoke away from fires （ B ） How Can a Small Stamp Be Worth $16,800?
Any mistake made in the printing of a stamp raises its value（价值）to stamp collectors. A mistake on a two-penny（便士，英国辅币） stamp has made it worth a million and a half times its face value. Do you think it impossible? Well, it is true. And this is how it happened. The mistake was made more than a hundred years ago in the former British colony（前英殖民地） of Mauritius, a small island in the Indian Ocean. In 1847 an order（订货单） for stamps was sent to London. Mauritius was about to become the fourth country in the world to put out stamps. Before the order was filled and the stamps arrived from England, a big dance was planned by the commander-in-chief of all the armed forces on the island. The dance would be held in his house and letters of invitation would be sent to all the important people in Mauritius. Stamps were badly needed to post the letters. Therefore, an islander, who was a good printer, was told to copy the pattern of the stamps. He carelessly put the words "Post Office" instead of "post Paid", two words seen on stamps at that time, on the several hundred that he printed. Today, there are only twenty-six of these misprinted stamps left-fourteen One-penny Reds and twelve Two-penny Blues. Because there are so few Two-penny Blues and because of their age, collectors have paid as much as $ 16,800 for one of them. 41.The mistake on a two-penny stamp has made ______. A. a lot of trouble for the post office. B. Mauritius the fourth country to put out stamps. C. it worth half a million times its face value. D it worth as much as sixteen thousand and eight hundred dollars. 42. When was the mistake in printing made? It was made _____. A. not long ago B. in the eighteenth century C. in the nineteenth century D. after some stamps arrived from London 43. In 1847 most countries of the world were ______. A. not yet using stamps B. printing stamps in Mauritius C. printing their own stamps D. collecting valuable stamps 44. Why did Mauritius print some stamps too? Because _____.
A. London stamps were not well printed B. London would not print them C. invitations to a big dance had to be posted quickly D. Mauritius had a very good printer 45."Post Paid" means ___________. A. the same as "Post Office" B. the Post Office is the place to buy stamps C. money has been paid for the stamp D. the letter must be posted C I had just gone to bed after a very hard day when the phone rang. It was an eccentric（怪僻的）farmer. I had never met him before although I had often heard people talk about him. He sounded quite nervous and he had been talking for a minute or so before I understood anything. Even then all I could make out was that someone called Milly had had a very bad accident. I hadn't the slightest idea who she was but I obviously had to go . It had been snowing heavily that day and I didn't know the way. I had been driving for at least an hour when I finally found his place. He was standing there, waiting for me. It seemed Milly had died. "She meant more to me than anyone…even my own wife!" he said. I could see that he had been crying. I thought something terrible had taken place, a possible scandal（丑闻）. I was even more shocked when he told me he had put her in the barn （厩）."I wouldn't leave her out in the cold!" he said. Milly had clearly been a secret lover of his. I was about to tell him he could not expect me to cover anything up when he opened the barn door .He lifted his candle and I saw a dark figure on the ground." She was such a good cow! I wouldn't let anyone but a doctor touch her!" he said, and burst into tears again. 46. The underlined phrase make out in the first paragraph means _____. A. expect B. understand C. see clearly D. hear clearly 47. Before he arrived at the farmer's house, the writer expected to see Milly lying ______. A. on the ground of a barn B. on the floor of a room. C. in bed in a room D. in bed in a barn 48. What do we know about Milly from he story? A. She had met with an accident.
B. She had caused a scandal C. She was seriously ill. D. She was hidden somewhere. 49. The farmer wished that the writer might ______. A. look into the matter B. bring Milly back to life C. free him from a scandal D. keep the whole thing a secret 50. The person who told the story is probably a _____. A. farmer B. policeman C. country doctor D. newspaper reporter
D We cannot feel speed. But our senses let us know that we are moving. We see things moving past us and feel that we are being shaken. We can feel acceleration, an increase in speed. But we noticed it for only a short time. For instance, we feel it during the takeoff of an airliner. We feel the plane’s acceleration because our bodies do not gain speed as fast as the plane does. It seems that something is pushing us back against the seat. Actually, our bodies are trying to stay in the same place, while the plane is carrying us forward. Soon the plane reached a steady speed. Then, because there is no longer and change in speed, the feeling of forward motion stops. 51. We can tell that our train is moving ____________. A. when we see a green light ahead of the train B. by watching the neighboring train move past ours C. when the building outside the window moves past us D. according to the time-table 52. Acceleration means ____________. A. a fast speed B. a full speed C. an increased speed D. an increase in speed
53. When the jeep starts to run, we feel that ______________. A. we are pushed back against the seat B. we are thrown forward B. we are lifted high up in the sky C. everything is strange to us
54. Why do we feel the acceleration when a bus starts? A. Because the bus can’t gain the speed so fast as we do. B. Because the bus is not in good condition. C. Because we can’t gain the speed as fast as it does. D. Because an acceleration doesn’t disappear in a minute. 55. Which of the following statements is correct? A. There is still an acceleration as a car slows down. B. There is no longer an acceleration when a ship is going as fast as she can. C. We can feel acceleration in an train all the time. D. There isn’t any acceleration when you start to ride a bike.
