The king waited excitedly till the next morning. To his joy, everything he touched changed
immediately into gold. ??I?m the richest man in the world now.” He shouted. Soon Mid as became hungry. He sat down at his table. All the foods and drinks turned into gold in his hand. ??I?m dying of hunger.” He cried. Just then his daughter came running in. ??Why are you so sad, dad?” she asked, putting her arms around him.

That?s what all doctors thought, until they heard about Al Herpin. Al Herpin, it was said, never slept. Could this be true? The doctors decided to see this strange man themselves. Al Herpin was 90 years old when the doctors came to his home in New Jersey. They thought for sure that he got some sleep of some kind. So they stayed with him and watched every movement he made. But they were surprised. Though they watched him hour after hour and day after day, they never saw him sleeping. In fact, he did not even own a bed. He never needed one. The only rest that Herpin sometimes got was sitting in a comfortable chair and reading newspapers. The doctors were puzzled by this strange continuous sleeplessness. They asked him many questions, hoping to find an answer. They found only one answer that might explain his condition. Herpin remembered some talk about his mother having been injured several days before he was born. But that was all. Was this the real reason? No one could be sure. Herpin died at the age of 94. 60. The main idea of this passage is that_____ A. large numbers of people do not need sleep B. a person was found who actually didn?t need any sleep
C. everyone needs some sleep to stay alive D. people can live longer by trying not to sleep 61. After watching him closely, the doctors came to believe that Al Herpin_____ A. needed some kind of sleep B. was too old to need any sleep C. needed no sleep at all D. often sleep in a chair 62. One reason that might explain Herpin?s sleeplessness was _____ A. his mother?s injury before he was born B. that he had gradually got rid of the sleeping habit C. his magnificent physical condition D. that he hadn?t got a bed 63. Al Herpin?s condition could be regarded as ______ A. a common one B. one that could be cured C. very healthy D. a rare one C Can we give a hand to those endangered animals? Yes, we may only do a little bit, but together our small actions add up to a lot. 1. Protect wildlife habitat. Perhaps the greatest threat that faces many species is the widespread destruction of habitat. Cutting down forests, farming, and development all result in loss of wildlife habitat. In areas where rare species live, habitat destruction can quickly force a species to extinction. By protecting habitat, entire communities of animals can be protected together naturally. Parks and reserves are now all too often the only habitats that are left untouched by habitat destruction. 2. Reduce the threat of invasive (入侵的) species. The spread of non-native species has greatly reduced native populations around the world. Invasive species compete with native species for resources (资源) and habitat. They can even prey on native species directly, forcing native species towards extinction. 3. Place decals (贴花纸) on windows. It is reported that as many as one billion birds in the United States die each year because of collisions (碰撞) with windows. You can help reduce the number of collisions simply by placing decals on the windows in your home and office. 4. Slow down when driving. Many native animals have to live in developed areas and this means they must move in human-living areas. One of the biggest obstacles (障碍) to them is that created by roads. Roads divide habitat and present a constant risk to any animal attempting to cross from one side to the other. So when you?re out and about, slow down and keep an eye out for wildlife. 64. What would be the best title for this passage? A. How animals go to extinction B. The importance of protecting wildlife C. What to do to help save wildlife D. How to protect wildlife habitat
65. By writing the underlined sentence, the writer means that _____. A. more parks and reserves should be built B. we should have more habitats free of destruction C. there is a need for improvement in parks and reserves D. parks and reserves are good examples of protecting wildlife 66. People are advised to put decals on windows to _____. A. decorate the houses and beautify the environment B. protect the windows from birds hitting C. attract more birds to make homes nearby D. avoid birds hitting the windows by mistake 67. The underlined phrase “prey on” in the passage means _____. A. drive away B. live with C. kill for food D. fight with D Most young people enjoy some form of physical activity. It may be walking, cycling or swimming, or in winter, skating or skiing. It may be a game of some kind, such as football, hockey, golf or tennis. It may be mountaineering. Those who have a passion for climbing high and difficult mountains are often looked upon with astonishment. Why are men and women willing to suffer cold and hardship, and to take risks on high mountains? This astonishment is caused probably by the difference between mountaineering and other forms of activity to which men give their leisure. Mountaineering is a sport and not a game. There are no manmade rules, as there are for such games as golf and football. There are, of course, rules of a different kind which it would be too dangerous to ignore, but it is this freedom from man-made rules that makes mountaineering attractive to many people. Those who climb mountains are free to use their own methods. If we compare mountaineering and other more familiar sports, we might think that one big difference is that mountaineering is not a “team game”. We should be mistaken in this. There are, it is true, no “matches” between teams of climbers, but when climbers are on a rock face linked by a rope on which their lives may depend, there is obviously team wor k. The mountain climber knows that he may have to fight forces that are stronger and more powerful than man. He has to fight the forces of nature. His sport requires high mental and physical qualities. A mountain climber continues to improve in skill year after year. A skier is probably past his best by the age of thirty, and most international tennis champions are in their early twenties. But it is not unusual for a man of fifty or sixty to climb the highest mountains in the Alps. They may take more time than younger men, but they probably climb with more skill and less waste of effort, and they certainly experience equal enjoyment. 68. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. Differences between Golf and Mountaineering. B. Sports and Games. C. Mountaineering. D. Why are so many people crazy about mountaineering? 69. The mountaineering can also be called a team sport because ____. A. mountain climbers usually compete in groups B. mountaineers depend on each other while climbing
C. mountaineering climbers are free to use their won rules to climb D. mountaineering is a sport not a game 70. The biggest difference between golf and mountaineering lies in ____. A. team game B. enjoyment C. age D. rules 71. In the author?s opinion, one of the most important reason why so many people enjoy mountaineering is that ____. A. there are no man-made rules for mountaineers B. mountaineering is a sport and not a game C. it is one of the most dangerous sports D. mountaineering brings us more enjoyment than other sports E Pingyao, in the center of Shanxi Province, is a famous historic cultural city of China and a world cultural heritage (遗产) site. It?s 90 kilometers south of Taiyuan on the Fen River. People lived in Pingyao during the New Stone Age. Its long period as a county government seat has left Pingyao with lots of historic buildings and sites, with a 2,700-year history. Ninety-nine o f them are under government protection, including Zhengguo Temple, Shuanglin Temple and Pingyao Ancient City. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, businessmen organized commercial (商业的) groups that did business nationwide. Shanxi Province had some of the most important ones and Pingyao was their center. In 1823, a store, known as Rishengchang (Sunrise Prosperity), traded in bank checks rather than in s ilver or gold coins. It was the beginning of modern Chinese banking. Branch (分支) banks were soon set up in major cities in China and other parts of Asia, leading to great development in Pingyao. I ts lacquer ware (漆器) became well known. In Pingyao Ancient City are many traditional houses and commercial buildings, 3,797 of which are protected and more than 400 of which are in good condition. Not only do the houses in Pingyao show Shanxi?s history and culture, but this large number is valuable for studying its history, customs, ancient buildings and art. Most of these houses are still used as homes and shops of local people. In 1997, Ancient Pingyao City was listed in World Heritage Lis t as “World Culture Heritage Site”. 72. What does the underlined word “them” (in Paragraph 2) refer to? A. Historic buildings and sites. B. The three temples C. The county government seats. D. The 2,700-year history. 73.
