What are some of the steps a person can take to prevent his house from being broken into while he is away? One step is tomake sure that the house seems a lived-in one. Living room curtains should be pulled down only half-way. Bedrooms that usually have the curtains pulled down at night should be left down . Another is to make sure that all outside locks are the
dead-bolt type (双保险) . Still another is to leave several 100W lights burning and make sure that one is in the kitchen.
Lights that turned on and off by themselves are the best. Then, too, it is a good idea to leave the radio turned on and set to a talking station. Any type of speaking makes a thief think twice before trying to enter. Finally, while away on holiday, make sure that nothing collects in front or in the house. Particularly, make certain that the newspaper is stopped and that a trusted neighbour has been asked to pick up the mail. Thieves are especially quick to notice piled-up newspapers and overpiled mail boxes.

Finally one day in June Mr Richards complained to a clever friend of his who lived in the same place. "One of my wife's cousins is going to bring her husband and children and spend ten days with us next month again. How have you prevented all your relatives from coming to live with you in ummer ?"

( C )
I wonder why American towns looks so much alike that I sometimes mix them up in my memory. The standard influence(影响)of mass production whose agents(代理商)are the travelling salesman, the mail-order house, the five-and-ten cent stores, the chain stores, the movies can hardly explain it. If you stay two days in Bologna and in Ferrare, or in Arles and in Avignon, you will never mix them up in all your life. But it may well happen that after you spend two days in St.Louis and in Kansas City the appearances of these two cities soon mix up. I think the reason for this is that these towns have not yet had time enough to develop their own characters. Similarly, children are much less different from each other than grown people.
Which two of the following towns look so much alike?[1分]
St. Louis and Kansas City
In line 4 the word "it" refers to ____________.[1分]
American towns look very much alike because of ____________.[1分]
the standard influence of mass production
their different appearances
not being fully developed
having everything in common

Millions of stars are travelling about in space. A few form groups which journey together, but most of them travel alone.
And they travel through a universe so large that one star seldom comes near to another. For the most part each star makes its journey in complete loneliness, like a ship on an empty ocean. The ship will be well over a million miles from its nearest neighbor. From this it is easy to understand why a star seldom finds another anywhere neat it.
We believe, however, that some two thousand million years ago, another star wandering(漫游) through space, happened to come near our sun, Just as the sun and the moon raise tides(潮汐)on the earth, so this star must have raised tides on the surface of the sun .But they were very different from the small tides that are raised in our oceans; a large tidal wave must have travelled over the surface of the sun, at last forming a mountain so high that we cannot imagine it. As the cause of the disturbance(动荡) came nearer, so the mountain rose higher and higher. And before the star began to move away again,its tidal pull had become so powerful that this mountain was torn to pieces and threw off small parts of itself into space.
These small pieces have been going round the sun ever since. They are the planets(行星).
Millions of stars are _______________.[1分]
following a regular path in space
moving about without a fixed course
seldom wandering about in the universe
always travelling together
Some two thousand million years ago, the mountain on the sun was raised probably because
a large tidal wave of a star travelled over the surface of the sun
another star happened to come near the sun
the sun and the moon raised the tides on the earth
the star moved away from the sun
The article suggests that _____________ .[1分]
our earth exists before the sun
no one knows where the earth comes from
our earth used to be a high mountain on the sun
The expression "the cause of the disturbance" refers to _________.[1分]
the star coming near the sun
In this article, the writer mainly wants to tell the readers __________.[1分]
that the universe is so large that we cannot imagine it
how the high mountains were formed on the sun
why the tides over the surface of the sun were so powerful
where the planets in the universe came from

Contacts(交往) between Japan and the rest of the world have grown a great deal in the twentieth century. In the last thirty years, business contacts between Japan and the West have become very important. Many foreign companies now have offices in Japan and Japanese businessmen do business around the world.
Differences between Japanese and Western ways of doing business, however, often bewilder the foreign businessman and make doing business in Japan difficult for foreigners.
The American businessman, for example , wants of start talking business immediately . He wants quick decisions. He does not wait. The Japanese, on the other hand , likes to arrive at decisions gradually after giving them a great deal of thought.
Another thing foreign businessmen have difficulty in understanding is when a Japanese means "Yes" or "No". This is because of cultural difference for a Japanese to say "No" directly.
In English, it is easy to say "No" to something we do not want to do. But in Japan it is very difficult to say "No". To refuse an invitation or a request with "No", or a similar phrase, is felt to be impolite. It is thought to be selfish(自私) and unfriendly. So instead of saying "No" directly, the Japanese have developed many ways to avoid saying "No". These enable them to avoid hurting other people's feeling. However, this often makes communication with the Japanese difficult for foreigners to understand and follow.
Paragraph one tells us that ______________ .[1分]
It is not always easy for foreigners to do business in Japan
Japan is a very important country for businessmen
business contacts between Japan and the West are important
Japanese businessmen do business all around the world
The word "bewilder" in paragraph 2 probably means _________.[1分]
From the passage we can know that _____________.[1分]
American businessmen do things more quickly than Japanese ones
American businessmen like to say "Yes" and "No"
Americans usually say what they are thinking
Americans do not express themselves clearly
The passage tells us that ________.[1分]
Japanese businessmen are good at business
foreign businessmen should first try to understand Japanese
foreign businessmen must be more polite
if you want to succeed you must learn from Japan

SunDAy SEptEmBEr 15
Today I went to the Fu&Nan Rivers as a young volunteer to clean the place. Early in the morning we started by bike. As soon
as we got there, we began to work. First we collected the rubbish on the river bank. Then we put up notices to tell people
to protect the environment. We kept on telling the visitors the importance of protecting the environment. Having cleaned
the river bank we said goodbye to the workers and went home. Though I was tired, I felt happy.
