    One answer to the question of land shortage was suggested by an organization some years ago. A city was to be built at sea, housing 30,000 people.

     The suggestion was to shape the city like a harbor(港口).The outer wall of the

    harbor would stand on steel columns resting on the sea-bed. Naturally this could only be where the water was fairly shallow. The people would like to live in flats in the fifty-metre high outer wall. The flats would be all face inwards, and would be made of concrete(混泥土) and glass. The glass would be specially made and colored to control the heat and strong light from the sun. The planners called this man-made harbor would be calm. On it would be floating islands carrying more building: a hospital, two theaters, museum, an art exhibition hall and a church. On one of the islands would be a special factory to take the salt out of sea water and turn it into fresh water.

     People living in the city could move around on small boats driven by electricity, so there would be no air pollution from the burning of gas. There would be platforms outside the man wall for ships bringing supplies. People could also travel to the mainland by motorboat or water plane.

    36. What was suggested about the construction of a new city at sea?

    A. The city was to be designed together with a harbor.

    B. The walls around the city would be made of steel and glass.

    C. The building of the city would rest on a floating island.

    D. The people would live in tall building surrounded by a wall.

    37. How would fresh water be supplied to the city?

    A. By treating sea water.

    B. By getting it from the surrounding islands.

    C. By building a small lake of fresh water inside the city.

    D. By transporting it from the mainland.

    38. The suggestion made by the organization is to solve the problem that _______.

    A. there is not enough space for building cities on land

    B. land transportation has became increasingly difficult

    C. there are too many people on land

    D. present cities are heavily polluted by cars

    39. The purpose of the writer is _______.

    A. to suggest how new type of harbor could be built at sea

    B. to give a description of a new-type city

    C. to draw people's attention to the problem of air pollution

    D. to introduce a new way of building harbor-cities

    More than 6000 children were expelled(开除) from US school last year for

    bringing guns and bombs to school, the US Department of Education said on May 8.

    The department gave a report to the expulsions(开除) as saying handguns

    accounted for 58 percent of the 6093 expulsions in 1996---97, against 7 percent for rifles(步枪) or shotguns and 35 percent for other types of firearms.

     ―The report is a clear sign that our nation's public schools are cracking down(

    ) on students who bring guns to school,‖ Education Secretary Richard Riley said in a statement. ―We need to be tough-minded about keeping guns out of our schools and

    do everything to keep our children safe.‖

    In March1997, an 11 years old boy and 13 years old boy using handguns and rifles shot dead four children and a teacher at a school in Jonesboro, Arkansas. In October, two were killed and seven wounded in a shooting at a Mississippi school. Two months later, a 14-year-old boy killed three high school students and wounded five in Dasucah, Kentucky.

    Most of the expulsions, 56 percent, were from high school, which have students from about age 13. 34 percent were from junior high schools and 9 percent were from elementary schools, the report said.

    44. The main idea of the passage is that in the US schools _______.

    A. students enjoy shooting

    B. students are eager to be soldiers

    C. safety is a problem

    D. students can make guns

    45. From what Richard Riley said we can infer that ________.

    A. the number of the expulsions is not large

    B. the number of the expulsion is wrong

    C there are soldiers hiding among the students

    D. guns are out of control in US schools

    46. The main idea of paragraph four shows us ______.

    A. some examples of shoot in US schools.

    B. the American's feeling.

    C. some famous schools.

    D. that some teachers were killed by students.

    47. From this passage we get to know that ________.

    A. every American cannot have guns

    B. only soldiers and police can have guns

    C. every American citizen can own guns

    D. teachers have no money to buy guns


     All over the world, libraries have begun the Herculean(巨大的) task of making

    faithful digital copies of the books, images and recordings that preserve the intellectual effort of mankind. For armchair scholars, the work promises to bring such a wealth of information to desktop that the present Internet may not match.

     Librarians see three clear benefits to going digital. First, it helps them preserve rare and fragile objects without refusing the demands of those who wish to study them.

The British Library, for example, holds the only medieval manuscript?手稿,of

    Beowulf in London. Only qualified scholars were allowed to see it until Kevin S. Kiernan of the University of Kentucky scanned the Manuscript with three different light sources and put the images up on the Internet for anyone to use.

     A second benefit is convenience. Once books are changed to digital form, readers can find them in seconds rather than minutes. Several people can read the same book or view the same picture at the same time. Clerks are spared the chore of reshelving. And libraries could use the Internet to lend their collections to those who are unable to visit in person.

     The third advantage of electronic copies is that they occupy millimeters of space on a magnetic disk rather than meters on a shelf. The cost of library buildings is increasingly high. The University of California at Berkeley recently spent $ 46 million on an underground addition to house 1.5 million books----an average cost of $30 per volume. The price of disk storage, on the contrary, has fallen to about $ 2 per 300-page publication and continues to drop.

48. What is the message in the first paragraph?

     A. More people can read precious books.

     B. The Internet provides more information.

     C. Libraries are making efforts to preserve books.

     D. Libraries are making digital copy of books.

    49. Which words in the second paragraph help you to identify the supporting points?

     A. three, First, for example B. benefits, manuscript, scholars

     C. helps, holds, scanned D. clear, qualified, different

    50. Which of the following is mentioned in the text as benefits of going digital?

     A. Fewer staff will be required in libraries.

     B. Libraries will be able to move underground.

     C. Borrowers need not go to the library building.

     D. Old manuscripts can be moved more easily.

    51. How is the text organized?

     A. Opinion Description B. Message Explanation

     C. Main idea Comparison D. Introduction Conclusion


    Well, when the huge wave hit the boat, my safety belt broke and I was swept overboard. I don’t really understand how it happened, but it did. I heard someone yell

    out, but then my boat, Wild One, went off into the darkness and I was alone in a very rough sea. I then spent five and a half hours in the water. The place where it happened was, oh, about 50 kilometers from shore. It was likely that I wouldn’t see another day, but I always thought I’d overcome the difficulties. At first I was watching out for Wild One. The rest of the crew knew I was gone, so they were sure to come back and look for me. After a while, I saw the boat’s lights when it came looking for me. They were within about 300 meters of me, but the spotlight just missed me. The reason why they didn’t see me was because of the huge waves. You know, I started sailing when I was

    seven, and started ocean racing when I was about eighteen, but I’d never been overboard before. I believed I was going to survive, but it was very cold, and as the hours passed I started to get desperate——and frozen! It was around 5 am when I saw

    the lights of a tanker coming towards me. I figured it was probably my last chance. At first, I thought they were going to miss me, and then they made a slight turn and I yelled out ―Help!‖ and they heard me. Then another yacht appeared. These guys were

    terrific. They gave me dry clothes, and then one jumped into the bunk and hung onto me. They covered us with as much dry clothing as they could, and the guy in with me stayed to transfer his body heat to me.

    52. The author of the passage was alone in the sea NOT because ______. A. the wind was too strong B. the wave hit the boat

    C. the safety belt was broken D. his boat was in the darkness

    53. He was not saved by his crew because _______.

    A. he didn’t yell out ―Help!‖ B. 300 meters was long distance

    C. he was not found D. he didn’t see the spotlight
