On earth, you can easily change the appearance of your face. In space, astronauts’ faces also change and there is little they can do to stop the change.
When you are in space, you don’t feel the pull of gravity as you do on the earth. You can
float! This also means every part of your body is also floating—including everything inside your body. Astronauts can feel the fluid (such as water and blood) moving into their heads.
They often talk of having a “ stuffy nose,” “ sinus pressure(窦压)”, or even “ headaches” as their heads start holding more fluid than before. The extra fluid creates more pressure inside the
head. As the pressure builds, it pushes outward on the skin. This makes the skin on their face
“ puff out” and they can look different.
Studies have shown that astronauts can lose 1—2% of their bone density(骨密度) every month they are in space. This seems to happen because your bones aren’t needed in space to support your weight like they do on the earth. This can be a problem if they lose too much of
the bone material and then return to the earth. Their bones could become weak and possibly
Astronauts also grow 1—2 inches in space. Gravity no longer pulls on the bones of the
backbone. This allows those bones to move apart a bit which lets you literally “ stretch out”
while in space. Of course, you will shrink back to your normal height when you return to the
When astronauts return to the earth, they need to be careful to take time to allow their
blood to return to “ normal” as it is pulled out of their head again into their chest and legs.
Astronauts risk fainting if they stand or move too quickly.
31. People can float in space because ______.
A. they lose their weight B. they can feel no gravity
C. the air is much thinner D. their bones become smaller
32. The “ headache” of an astronaut is result of _____.
A. the loss of balance in space B. no gravity in space
C. pressure from the extra fluid D. less bone density
33. Astronauts may _____ when they are in space.
A. have stronger bones B. put on weight
C. have blood problems D. become taller
34. The underlined phrase “ stretch out” in paragraph four might mean ______.
A. make longer by pulling B. lie down comfortably
C. pull in opposite directions D. increase in quantity
35. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?
A. Astronauts change their body size when in space.
B. Low bone density may cause broken bones.
C. Astronauts may faint if they move too fast in space.
D. People need bones to support their weight on earth.
Country music is one of the most popular kinds of music in the United States today,
because it is about simple but strong human feelings and events like love, sadness, good times,
and bad times. It tells real-life stories and sounds the way people really talk. As life becomes
more complicated and difficult, it is good to hear music about ordinary people.
Country music is sometimes called country-western music. It comes from two kinds of
music. One is the traditional music of the people in the Appalachian Mountains in the eastern
United Stated. The other is traditional cowboy music from the American West. The singers
usually play guitars or electric guitars when they sing.
At first city people said country music was for the lower class. It was popular mostly in
the South. But during World War II, thousands of southerners went to the Northeast and
Midwest to work in the factories. They took their music with them. Soldiers from the rest of the
country went to army camps in the south. They learned country music. Slowly it became
popular all over the country.
Today country music is also popular everywhere in the United States and Canada—in
small towns and in New York City, among black and white, and among educated and
uneducated people. About 1,200 radio stations broadcast country music twenty-four hours a day.
English stars sing it in British English, and people in other countries sing it in their own
languages. The music that started with cowboys and poor southerners is now popular all over
36. It can be learned from the passage that country music comes from ______.

Dolphins can talk
After a long period of studies, scientists are finding out surprising new findings about
dolphins. They believe that dolphins do “talk” to
each other, whistling “names” among themselves
and others in their group. They help one another
when in trouble. Like bats, they use sound waves
to “see”. Because of these and many other findings,
many scientists now place dolphins among the
cleverest animals on earth.
Dolphins love to copy the way someone
speaks or acts. If we swim on our backs, they do too. If we dive, they follow. Once a trainer
blew a puff (喷) of cigarette smoke against the window of an observation tank, a young dolphin
suddenly swam to its mother, nursed a moment, and spit out a cloud of milk against the glass.
It is even more surprising that dolphins are able to understand sign language. One of
Herman's dolphins has mastered more than 50 sign words. For example, it understands the
difference between “bring the surfboard to the person” and “bring the person to the surfboard”.
Now scientists are learning how dolphins “speak” to each other. “Each dolphin,” says
Peter Tyaok, “has its own signature whistle.” Dolphins can also copy the signatures of others.
Dolphins help one another. When birth-giving takes place, females gather to keep off
sharks. Later, while the mother looks for food, they take care of the young dolphin, swimming
in a circle. Dolphins reach out to us in astonishing ways. What would the world be like without
46. To the best of our knowledge, dolphins are ____________.
A. surprising fish B. interesting animals
C. intelligent mammals D. man’s friend 47.The underlined word “nursed” in the second paragraph most probably means______________.
A. brought the mother something to eat B. sucked milk from the mother dolphin
C. asked to be taken care of D. gave some milk to her
48. The young dolphin suddenly swam to its mother to____________.
A. have a little fun B. dive into the deep sea
C. make the trainer happy D. copy the action of “smoking”
49. The females swim in a circle to ______________.
A. find food for the young dolphins
B. be sure that the young dolphin can play safely inside
C. teach the young dolphin to swim in a circle
D. let the mother have a chance to meet the father
50. Which of the following best expresses the main idea?
A. Man should protect lovely dolphins.
B. Scientists are making studies on dolphins.
C. We have little difficulty in understanding dolphins.
D. Man will be able to talk freely to dolphins in the near future.

Everyone needs friends. We all like to feel close to s 51 . It is nice to have a friend to
talk, laugh, and do things with. Surely, there are times when we need to be alone. We don’t always want people a 52 . But we would feel l 53 if we never had a friend.
No two people are just the same. Sometimes friends don’t get along well. That doesn’t mean that they no longer like each other. Most of the time they will make up and go on b 54
Sometimes friends move away. Then we feel very sad. We m 55 them very much. But we call them and write to them. It could be that we would even see them again. And we can
make new friends. It is surprising to find out how much we like new people w 56 we get to know them.
Families sometimes name their children after a close friend. Many places are named after
men and women who have been f 57 to people in a town. Some libraries are named this
way. So are some schools. We think of these people when we go to these p 58 .
There’s more good news for people who have friends. They live l 59 than people
who don’t. Why? It could be that they are happier. Being happy helps you stay well. Or it could
be just knowing that someone cares. If someone cares about you, you take better care of y

Someone is singing next door, but you feel unhappy because her singing is terrible. So you
think she is just making noise. We know that too much noise makes people feel terrible.
Scientists are still trying to find out more about noise, but already it is known that a noise
of over 85 decibels can make some people tired and anxious.
In the past we thought only workers in very noise places became deaf easily. Today,
scientists believe that 10% of all workers in Britain become deaf in their work.
There are also new dangers from noise. Pop music, for example, can reach 120 decibels
when it is played loudly five feet away! Only a plane can make such loud noise when it takes
There was an experiment in the United States.
63 Some people would be given a lot of money if they stood below a jet when it was taking off over their heads. No one got the money
after the jet flew past because all of them died in the noise.
64People cannot center their attention on what they are doing when there is much noise.
Workers in noise office, for example, do their work more slowly than workers in quiet offices.
Another study shows that workers in factories can do dull jobs better when lively music is
played for them.
61. What noise can make people tired and anxious?
