However, computers were still very expensive and the Internet was difficult to use. By the start of the 1900s, computers became cheaper and easier to use. Scientists had also developed software ( 软件 ) that made surfing ( 浏览 ) the Internet more convenient ( 方便 ). Today it is easy to get on-line ( 上网 ) and it is said that millions of people use the Internet every day. Sending e-mail ( 电子邮件 ) is more popular among students.

Aristotle lived in Greece over 2,000 years ago. He was very interested in plants and animals and in how human body works. The Greeks weren’t the only people interested in how the body worked. Old drawings and texts from China and the Middle East also showed human organs. Some even showed planted argans.

Atomic( 原子的 ) energy is a great discovery of last century, and many people have played a part in its development. Albert Einstein told the world about its basic idea in his famous Theory of Relativity in 1905. As he and other scientist began to discover more about the atom, they learned that a great amount of energy could be released ( 释放 ) by splitting ( 分裂 ) an atom. However, it was also necessary that energy be controlled. If it were not, it would be dangerous.
Now atomic energy is used to move ships, and it may prove useful for spaceships. In fact, this source of power has so many uses that it is almost impossible to imagine all the great changes it will bring into our lives.
Some scientists say the world needn’t be afraid of a possible shortage （ 短缺 ）of coal, oil, natural gas or other sources of fuel for the future. They day that if these were used up, herer would be enough of this type of energy to last forever.

People who are selling things usually put out advertisements about their articles
in newspapers and magazines, and on radio and television. Asvertisements tell us what we can get to buy, and they help us to get what we want. If you look at the page of classified ( 分类的 ) advertisemrnts in newspapers, you will see many advertisements that give you just useful information about goods.
But, since we always have to choose what to buy with our money, every advertiser uses different ways to get us to choose the things he is advertising. How can we judge what to believe, and what no to believe, before we spend our money ? The answer is by learning to see through the tricks some advertisers use, so that we do not get fooled very easily.
First, we have to know people can be persuaded to make a certain choice if someone peomises them sonthing they. We have certain wishes, needs, feelings and weaknesses as human beings. A person whousuggests that a certain need will be satisfied will have us ready to do what hw wants us to do, unless we can find out what his aim is. As Samuel Johnson, a famous writer, once said, “Promise, large promise, is the soul of an advertisement.”

the crowded streets, on top of a 40

绷索 ) between the two towers pf the World Trade Center.
Philippe took his frist 42
with great care. The wire held. Now he was
he could do it. 44
only a balancing pole, Philippe walked his way across, a 45
of 131 feet.
Soon the rush-hour 46
began to notic. What a 47
! There, 1350 feet above the street, a 48
figure was walking on air.
Philippe made seven 49

. At times, he would turn, sit down, and 51
go on his kness. Once, he had the astonishing 52
to lie down on the thin thread. And thousands of 53
watchers stared with their hearts beating fast.

Now satellites are helping to forecast ( 预报 ) the weather. They are in space, and they can reach any parts of the world. The satellites take pictures of thr atmosphere ( 大气 ), because this is where the weather forms ( 形成 ). They senf these pictures to the weather stations. So meteorologists ( 气象学家 ) can see the weather of any part of the world. From the pictures, the scientists can often say how the weather will change.
Today, nearly five hundred weather stations in sixty countries receive satellite pictures. When they receive new pictures, the meteorologists compare ( 比较 ) them with earlier ones. Perhaps they may find that the clouds have changed during the last few hours. This may mean that the weather on the ground may soon change, too. In their next weather forecast, the meteorologists can say this.
So the weather satellites are a great help to the meteorologists. Before satellites were invented, the scientists could forecast the weather for about 24 or 48 hours. Now they can make good forcasts for three or five days. Soon, perhaps, they may be able to forecast the weather for a week or more ahead ( 提前 ).

A. when they have received satellite pictures
B. after they have compared new satellitepictures with earlier ones

respect“尊敬”, miss“想念”, praise“表扬”, admire“钦佩”, 由于下文说期待每天都能见到她，因此本句用miss,衔接最自然。
disappearance“消失,不见”, appearance“出现”, misfortune“不幸”, fortune“幸运”,依据上文，作者是在想她不出现的原因。故选A。
forget“忘记”, lose“丢失”, know“认识”, hurt“伤害”。依据全文内容，她不见了，作者倒感觉认识她了，（天天见时却很陌生）。
familiar strangers“熟悉的陌生人”,冒号后面的三种人都属于familiar strangers。故选B。
regularly“有规律地”由下文的every morning可推断出，那个妇女在街上遛狗是很有规律发生的动作。Actually“事实上”, hardly“几乎不”, probably“可能”,均不符合文义。
common“公共的，普通的”, pleeasant“令人愉快的”, important“重要的”, faithfl“忠诚的”。“熟悉的陌生人”是我们生活中重要的一部分，这也是本文所阐述的观点。
choice“选择”, knoeledge“知识”, decision“决定”, sense“感觉”。正是由于这些“熟悉的陌生人”的存在，才使我们对某物或某事印象深刻。
keep“保持”, change“改变”, pass可指“经过某人或某处”, mention“提到”,由下文的when we pass a familiar person ,可知此处选C。
此处的“familiar , though unnamed , person”指“很熟悉 、常见 ，但却不知道名字的人”,符合全文所指的“熟悉的陌生人”这一概念。
由第一段第二句和第二段“it can tell you nothing about a student’s ability”可知，现在的考试制度并不能测试出一个学生的能力。
由文章第四段第三句“Students are encouraged to remember what is taught”可知，现在的考试制度只是让学生记住学过的东西。
由文章最后一段第一句“…the examinations often teachers to train students what to do with the coming examination from time to time”可知，为了让学生在考试中取得高分，老师们要向学生灌输很多信息。
本文是一篇说明文 ，从检查病人的身体状况方面说明了医学的进步。二百年前是通过医生和患者的交流来检测病人的身体状况，现在是通过专门的仪器来检测 ，于是更多的生命得到挽救。但是同时也有一些弊端，医生和病人之间的交流少了，病人觉得自己是破损的机器。
由文章第一段倒数第三句“…stethoscope , an instrument for listening to patients’ heartbeat and breathing.”可知 ，这种仪器是用来检查身体状况的。
题干意为“从文章中我们可以知道170年前，美国的妇女是怎样的”。从文章的第一段最后一句Decisions about family matters and about the children wrere made by her husband , the“head of the family”.可知 ，当时 ，美国的妇女根本没有权利过问家庭事务，甚至是孩子的抚养等问题。所以本题的正确答案为D。
题干意为“文章中划线单词assemble是什么意思”。从文章的第二段第二句话In 1884 the leaders of this movement(some of whom were antislavery activities as well )assemble the first Women’s Rights Convention , demanding equality .可知 ，由于美国的妇女没有多少权利可言，她们准备发动运动来请愿。这里的assemble的意思就是“为了一定的目的而聚集在一起”。所以本题的正确答案为A。
由文章第三段可知 ，到1900年 ，不少州的妇女已经赢得了选举权 ，但这并不意味着美国妇女在1900年以前没有选举权。
推断题。题干意为“下列哪一项是正确的”。从文章的第四段第一句话The women’s Liberation movement , which developed during the 1960s , has focused on economic rights such as“equal pay for equal work”.可知 ，在20世纪60年代 ，美国妇女的权利运动主要集中在同工同酬方面 ，主要关注的是自己的经济地位。所以本题的正确答案为B。
主旨题。题干意为“下列哪一项是文章最好的标题”。通读文章后我们可以知道 ，本文主要说明了美国妇女权利运动的前前后后 ，主要的发展历程 ，以及所取得的成果。所以本文主要说的是美国的妇女权利运动。所以本题的正确答案为C。
这是一篇记述文 ，写了一位战士回家过圣诞节的情景 ，虽然圣诞树不是很漂亮 ，但他觉得所有的圣诞树都是完美的 ，因为是在家和家人一起。
由文章第一段可知 ，并不是所有的士兵都回家过圣诞节 ，只有一部分人很幸运可以回家过圣诞节。
用文中第一段第七句“There were…against the green of a pine.”可知选C。
由第二段中母亲的话“It’s not like the ones you used to find”,“Yours were always in good shape.”可推知 ，作者以前砍的圣诞树很漂亮。
由第一点“Knowing why you are reading…”和第二点“Some things…”以及第三点“Some thing…”，可知 ，读书的速度与书的性质和读书的目的都有关。
由文中第三点“Examples are simple stories meant for enjoyment ,…”讲到的 ，应选A。
由文中第二点“Example are directions for making or doing something ,…”可知 ，指导做事的说明书要慢读。
这篇文章主要说明了影响读书速度的因素。读书的速度由读书的目的和书的性质决定 ，所以提高读书速度并非所要达到的目的 ，故B不能选。C、D两项在文中并未提及 ，故也不能选。
安排周末计划 ，在笔者心目中的周末应是特制的 ，故用定冠词the。
most后接of才能接形容词性物主代词/冠词 + 名词。
由上下文判断 ，此处出现转折：听音乐会很惬意 ，可是太贵了。用but表示转折关系。
a concert是第三人称单数作主语 ，谓语动词应与它保持一致。
need为不可数名词 ，there be中的谓语be用单数形式is。
Dear Sir/Madam ,
I’m writing for more information about the day tour to London.
As a student at Oxford University , I’d like to know if you have any special price for students. As for the money you charge , does it cover the entrance fees for visiting the places listed ? What about lunch ？Is it included ? Or do I need to bring along my own ？How long will the tour last ? Since I need to prepare my lessons for the next day , I’d like to know the time to return .
Looking forward to your reply .
