Watching TV is a very popular pastime in the UK, but what kind of programs do British people like to watch? Well, the most-watched TV programs every week are very popular dramas that are usually on at least four times every week. They are dramas based on one neighborhood that try to depict ordinary life in the UK--We call these dramas \
In the early days of TV, there were often dramas on during the day. Back in those days, it was traditional for the husband to go out to work and for the wife to stay at home and look after the house and the children. Most of these daytime dramas were aimed at entertaining the housewives who would traditionally be at home, probably doing the washing. Companies selling washing powder would advertise their products at times when these dramas were on, and sometimes those companies would even sponsor the drama. Hence the word \
So what about the word \exaggeration of real life. They are supposed to represent, ordinary lives but to make them entertaining, lots of dramatic events like murders, divorces, affairs etc. all happen probably much more regularly than they would in a normal neighborhood. 1. The most-watched TV programs in the UK are ―soap operas‖. A. T B. F
2. These dramas are called ―soap operas‖ because housewives like using soaps. A. T B. F
3. In the early days of TV, there were no dramas on in the evening. A. T B. F
4. These ―soap operas‖ are often an exaggeration of real life. A. T B. F
5. Dramatic events like murders, divorces, etc. do not happen very often in real life. A. T B. F
Crime has its own cycles, a magazine reported some years ago. Police records that were studied for five years from over 2,400 cities and towns show a surprising link between changes in the season and crime patterns in UK.
The pattern of crime has varied very little over a long period of years. Murder reaches its high during July and August, as do rape and other violent attacks. Murder, moreover, is more than seasonal: it is a weekend crime. It is also a nighttime crime: 62 percent of murders are committed between 6 p. m. and 6 a. m.
Unlike the summer high in crimes of bodily harm, burglary has a different cycle. You are most likely to be robbed between 6 p. m. and 2 a. m. on a Saturday night in December, January or February. The most uncriminal month of all is May; however, more dog bites are reported in this month than in any other month of the year. On the other hand, our intellectual seasonal cycles are completely different from our criminal tendencies. Professor Huntington, of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles, made extensive studies to discover the seasons when people read serious books, attend scientific meetings, make the highest scores on examinations, and propose the most changes to patents. In all instances, he found a spring peak and an autumn peak separated by a summer low. On the other hand, Professor Huntington's studies indicated that June is the peak month for suicides and admissions to mental hospitals. June is also a peak month for marriages!
6. The seasonal cycle of crime patterns is proved by_________. A. the figures in police records B. 2,400 cities and towns C. a magazine report
D. the studies by police officers
7. According to paragraph 2, a murder would most possibly occur on _________. A. a weekday morning in spring B. a weekday morning in autumn C. a weekend night in summer D. a weekend night in winter
8. What makes May a special month of the year? A. All types of crimes happen in May. B. There is no crime happened in May. C. Criminals increase in number in May. D. Dog attacks are most frequent in May.
9. Which behavior is NOT an example of human intellectual activities?
A. Reading books on philosophy. B. Attending wedding ceremony. C. Working on mathematics questions. D. Innovating engineering machinery.
10. According to Professor Huntington’s study, June is the peak month when people _________. A. get divorced
B. recover from mental illness C. try to kill themselves
D. climb high and low mountains
Cars are an important part of life in the United States. Without a car most people feel that they are poor. And even if a person is poor he doesn't feel really poor when he had a car.
Henry Ford was the man who first started making cars in large numbers. He probably didn't know how much the car was going to affect American culture. The car made the United Stated a nation on wheels. And it helped make the United States what it is today.
There are three main reasons why the car becomes so popular in the United States. First of all, the country is a huge one and Americans like to move around in it. The car provides the most comfortable and cheapest form of transportation. With a car people can go anyplace without spending a lot of money.
The second reason cars are popular is the fact that the United States never really developed an efficient and inexpensive form of public transportation. Long-distance trains have never been as common in the country as they are in other parts of the world. Nowadays there is a good system of air-service provided by planes. But it is too expensive to be used frequently.
The third reason is the most important one, though. The American spirit of independence is what really made cars popular. Americans don't like to wait for a bus, or a train or even a plane. They don' t like to have to follow an exact schedule. A car gives them the freedom to schedule their own time. And this is the freedom that Americans want most to have.
The gas shortage has caused a big problem for Americans. But the answer will not be a bigger system of public transportation. The real solution will have to be a new kind of car, one that does not use so much gas.
11. Most Americans feel they are poor when they ________. A. have no job B. have no food C. have no money D. have no car
12. Henry Ford was the first to ________ cars in large numbers. A. invent B. sell C. have D. produce
13.―A nation on wheels‖ means that ________.
A. the country is producing the best cars in the world B. everyone in this country owns a car
C. cars play a very important role in people' lives D. there are more cars than trains in this country 14. With a car people can go ________ easily. A. anywhere B. to anyplace C. to anywhere D. any place
15. The real solution to the gas shortage problem is ________. A. to make less cars
B. to develop a public transportation system C. to make gas-saving cars D. to develop train service
Why don't birds get lost on their long flights from one place to another? Scientists have puzzled over this question for a long time. Now they're starting to fill in the blanks.
Not long ago, experiments showed that birds use the sun to guide them during daylight hours. How do birds fly at night? Tests with artificial stars have proved that certain night-flying birds are able to follow the stars in their long-distance flights.www.Ｅxamda.CoM
A dove had spent its lifetime in a cage and had never flown under a natural sky. But it had an inborn ability to use the stars for guidance. The bird's cage was placed under an artificial star-filled sky. The bird tried to fly in the same direction as that taken by his outdoor cousins. Any change in the position of the artificial stars caused a change in the direction of his flight.考试大论坛
But the stars are apparently their main means of navigation（航行）. When the stars are hidden by clouds, they apparently find their way by such landmarks (路标)as fiver courses, mountain ranges, coast lines. But when it's too dark to see these things, the doves circle helplessly, unable to find their way.来 源：考试大

As we know, if we want to keep our healthy and have a strong body, our eating habits are very important in our daily life. There 'are times when most of us would rather eat sweets and ice cream than meat and rice. Actually, sweets and ice cream are not bad for the stomach if we eat them at the end of a meal. If we eat them before a meal, they may take away our appetite. Meanwhile, it is important for us to eat our meal at the same time each day. When we feel hungry, it shows that our bodies need food. When we feel angry or excited, we may not want to eat. When we are worried, we may not want to eat, either. A long time ago, in England, some judges used to decide whether a man was telling the truth by giving him some dry bread. If the man could not swallow the bread, it was a sign that he wasn't telling the truth. Although this seems very strange and rather foolish, it is indeed an excellent way of finding out the truth. A man who is worrying about something has difficulty in swallowing anything dry. He loses his appetite and does not want to eat anything if he is worrying something.
21. We have to develop good eating habits because ________. A. we want to be healthy and strong B. we want to enjoy our food C. we want to eat more D. we want to save time
22. ________ may take away our appetite before we have our meal. A. Either meat or rice

23. We had better have our meals ________. A. when our work is over B. at the same time each day C. when the meal is still hot D. when we go back home
24. A man who is angry has ________. A. a better appetite B. to eat more food C. a poor appetite D. to eat nothing
25. The judges in old England considered that a man could ________ if he didn't tell a
A. swallow dry bread easily B. eat a lot of dry bread C. drink milk or hot water D. hardly swallow dry bread
Shopping for clothes is not the same experience for a man as it is for a woman. A man goes shopping because he needs something. His purpose is settled and decided in advance. He knows what he wants, and his objective is to find it and buy it;the price is a secondary consideration. All men simply walk into a shop and ask the assistant for what they want. If the shop has it in stock, the salesman promptly produces it, and the business of trying it on proceeds at once. All being well, the deal can be and often is completed in less than five minutes,with hardly any chat and to everyone's satisfaction.
For a man, slight problems may begin when the shop does not have what he wants, or does not have exactly what he wants. In that case the salesman, as the name implies, tries to sell the customer something else—he offers the nearest he can to the article required. No good salesman brings out such a substitute bluntly;he does so with skill and polish: “I know this jacket is not the style you want, sir, but would you like to try it for size? It happens to be the color you mentioned.” Few men have patience with this treatment, and the usual response is:“This is the right colour and may be the right size, but I should be wasting my time and yours by trying it on.”
Now how does a woman go about buying clothes? In almost every respect she does so in the opposite way. Her shopping is not often based on need. She has never fully made up her mind what she wants, and she is only “having a look round”.She is always open to persuasion;indeed she sets great store by what the saleswoman tells her, even by what companions tell her. She will try on any number of things. Uppermost in her mind is the thought of finding something that everyone thinks suits her. Contrary to a lot of jokes, most women have an excellent sense of value when they buy clothes. They are always on the lookout for the unexpected bargain. Faced with a roomful of dresses, a woman may easily spend an hour going from one rail to another, to and often retracing (折回) her steps, before selecting the dresses she wants to try on. It is a laborious process, but apparently an enjoyable one. Most dress shops provide chairs for the waiting husbands.

From childhood to old age, we all use language as a means of broadening our knowledge of ourselves and the world about us. When humans first evolved, they were like newborn children, unable to use this valuable tool. Yet once language developed, the possibilities for human kinds future attainments and cultural growth increased.
Many linguists believe that evolution is ___1___ for our ability to produce and use language.

Proponents of this innateness theory say that our ___3____ for language is inborn, but that language itself develops gradually, ___4___ a function of the growth of the brain during childhood.
