Su Hua is studying at Cambridge, UK. She has bought a bicycle and is worried about security (安全). Her friend, Kate, found this article and sent it to her.


A lot of crime is against bicycles. About 150, 000 bicycles are stolen every year and most are never found. You can prevent this happening by following a few careful steps.

Basic Security

Do not leave your bicycle in out-of-the-way places. Always lock your bicycle when you leave. Secure it to lampposts or trees. Take off smaller parts and take them with you, for example lights and saddles (车座).


Get a good lock. There are many different types in the shops. Buy one that has been tested against attack. Ask for a recommendation from a bike shop.


Security marking your bike can act a deterrent to a thief. It can also help the police find your bicycle. It should be clearly written and include your postcode and your house or flat number. This will provide a simple way to identify your bicycle.


There are a number of companies who will security mark your bicycle for you. They will then put your registration number and personal details on their computer database. Then if your bicycle is found it will be easy to contact you.


Keep a record of the bicycle yourself: its make, model and registration number. You can even take a photograph of it. This will prove the bicycle belongs to you.

56. Which part of the text gives you information on how to lock up your bicycle when you leave it?

A. Locks.

B. Marking.

C. Registration.

D. Basic Security.

57. The underlined phrase “act as a deterrent to a thief” means ______.

A. help you recognize your bike

B. help the police find your bicycle

C. stop someone stealing your bicycle

D. stop you worrying about your bike

58. The article advises you to keep a record of your bicycle _______.

A. in the bike shop and your computer

B. in the police station and a security company

C. in a security company and your university

D. by yourself and in a security company

59. The main purpose of this article is _________.

A. to tell you what to do if your bicycle is stolen

B. to suggest ways of keeping your bicycle safe

C. to give you advice on where to buy a good lock

D. to say why you sh ouldn’t keep your bicycle in a quiet place


Professor Barry Wellman of the University of Toronto in Canada has invented a term to describe the way many North Americans interact (互动) these days. The term is “networked individualism”. This concept is not easy to understand because the words seem to have opposite meanings. How can we be individuals (个体) and be networked at the same time? You need other people for networks.

Here is what Professor Wellman means. Before the invention of the Internet and e-mail, our social networks included live interactions with relatives, neighbors, and friends. Some of the interaction was by phone, but it was still voice to voice, person to person, in real time.

A recent research study by the Pew Internet and American Life Project showed that for a lot of people, electronic interaction through the computer has replaced this person-to- person interaction. However, a lot of people interviewed for the Pew study say that’s a good thing. Why?

In the past, many people were worried that the Internet isolated (孤立) us and caused us to spend too much time in the imaginary world of the computer. But the Pew study discovered that the opposite is true. The Internet connects us with more real people than expected —helpful people who can give advice on careers, medical problems, raising children, and choosing a school or college. About 60 million Americans told Pew that the Internet plays an important role in helping them make major life decisions.

Thanks to the computer, we are able to be alone and together with other people — at the same time!

60. The underlined phrase “networked individualism” probably means that by using computers people ________.

A. stick to their own ways no matter what other people say

B. have the rights and freedom to do things of their own interest

C. do things in their own ways and express opinions different from other people

D. are able to keep to themselves but at the same time reach out to other people

61. according to the Pew study, what do many people rely on to make major life decisions?

A. Networks.

B. Friends.

C. Phones.

D. Parents.

62. It can be inferred from the Pew study that _______.

A. people have been separated from each other by using computers

B. the Internet makes people waste a lot of time and feel very lonely

C. the Internet has become a tool for a new kind of social communication

D. a lot of people regard the person-to-person communication as a good thing

63. Which would be the best title for this passage?

A. We’re Alone on the Internet.

B. We’re Communicating on the Internet.

C. We’re Alone Together on the Internet.

D. We’re in the Imaginary World of the Internet.

Some scientists claim that we humans are the only living things that are conscious (有意识的) —we alone are aware that we are thinking.

No one knows how consciousness works —it is one of science’s last great mysteries.

All your thoughts take place in the cerebrum (大脑皮质), which is at the top of your brain, and different kinds of thought are linked to different areas, called association areas.

Each half of the cerebrum has four rounded ends called lobes (脑叶) —two at the front (frontal and temporal lobes) and two at the back (occipital and parietal lobes).

The frontal lobe is linked to your personality and it is where you have your bright ideas.

The temporal lobe is where you hear and understand what people say to you.

The occipital lobe is where you work out what your eyes see.

The parietal lobe is where you record touch, heat and cold, and pain.

The left half of the brain controls the right side of the body. The right half controls the left side.

One half of the brain is always dominant (in charge). Usually, the left brain is dominant, which is why 90% of people are right-handed.

68. Which part of your cerebrum is most active when you are making a telephone call?

A. The frontal lobe.

B. The temporal lobe.

C. The occipital lobe.

D. The parietal lobe.

69. Which of the following statements is true?

A. One’s personality has something to do with the frontal lobe.

B. Bright ideas come from the parietal lobe.

C. The occipital and temporal lobes are at the back of the cerebrum.

D. The occipital lobe is in charge of sound.

70. From the passage, we know the reason why around 10% of people are left-handed is that ________.

A. their frontal lobe is usually dominant

B. their temporal lobe is usually dominant

C. their right brain is usually dominant

D. their left brain is usually dominant


Some people bring out the best in you in a way that you might never have fully realized on your own. My mom was one of those people.

My father died when I was nine months old, making my mom a single mother at the age of eighteen. While I was growing up, we lived a very hard life. We had little money, but my mom gave me a lot of love. Each night, she sat me on her lap and spoke the words that would change my life, “Kemmons, you are certain to be a gre at man and you can do anything in life if you work hard enough to get it.”

At fourteen, I was hit by a car and the doctors said I would never walk again. Every day, my mother spoke to me in her gentle, loving voice, telling me that no matter what those doctors said, I could walk again if I wanted to badly enough. She drove that message so deep into my heart that I finally believed her. A year later, I returned to school — walking on my own!

When the Great Depression (大萧条) hit, my mom lost her job. Then I left school to support the both of us. At that moment, I was determined never to be poor again.

Over the years, I experienced various levels of business success. But the real turning point occurred on a vacation I took with my wife and five kids in 1951. I was dissatisfied with the second-class hotels available for families and was angry that they charged an extra $2 for each child. That was too expensive for the average American family. I told my wife that I was going to open a motel (汽车旅馆) for families that would never charge extra for children. There were plenty of doubters at that time.

Not surprisingly, mom was one of my strongest supporters. She worked behind the desk and even designed the room style. As in any business, we experienced a lot of challenges. But with

my mother’s words deeply rooted in my soul, I never doubted we would succeed. Fifteen years later, we had the largest hotel system in the world — Holiday Inn. In 1979 my company had 1, 759 inns in more than fifty countries with an income of $ 1 billion a year.

You may not have started out life in the best situation. But if you can find a task in life worth working for and believe in yourself, nothing can stop you.

71. What Kemmons’ mom often told him during h is childhood was ______.

A. caring

B. moving

C. encouraging

D. interesting

72. according to the author, who played the most important role in making him walk back to school again?

A. Doctors.

B. Nurses.

C. Friends.

D. Mom.

73. What caused Kemmons to start a motel by himself?

A. His terrible experience in the hotel.

B. His previous business success of various levels.

C. His mom’s support.

D. His wife’s suggestion.

74. Which of the followin g best describes Kemmons’ mother?

A. Modest, helpful, and hard-working.

B. Loving, supportive and strong-willed.

C. Careful, helpful and beautiful.

D. Strict, sensitive and supportive.

75. Which of the following led to Kemmons’ success according to th e passage?

A. Self-confidence, hard work, higher education and a poor family.

B. Mom’s encouragement, clear goals, self-confidence and hard work.

C. Clear goals, mom’s encouragement, a poor family and higher education.

D. Mom’s encouragement, a poor fa mily, higher education and opportunities.
