    Without proper planning, tourism(旅游业) can cause problems. For example, too many tourists can crowd public places that are also enjoyed by the local people of a country. If tourists create too much traffic, the local people become unhappy. They begin to dislike tourists and to treat them impolitely. They forget how much tourism can help the countrys economy(经济). It is important to think about the people of a destination country and how tourism affects them. Tourism should help a country keep the customs and beauty that attract tourists. Tourism should also advance(推进) the well-being (health and happiness) of local people.

    Too much tourism can be a problem. If tourism grows too quickly, people must leave other jobs to work in the tourism industry. This means that other parts of the countrys economy can suffer.

    On the other hand, if there is not enough tourism, people can lose jobs. Businesses can also lose money. It costs a lot of money to build large hotels, airports, air terminals, first-class roads and other support facilities needed by tourist attractions. For example, a major international-class tourism hotel can cost as much as 50 thousand dollars per room to build. If this room is not used most of the time, the owners of the hotel will lose money.

    Building a hotel is just a beginning. There must be many support facilities as well, including roads to get to the hotel, electricity, sewers to handle waste, and water. All of these support facilities cost money. If they are not used because there are not enough tourists, jobs and money are lost.

    1. What is probably the reason if local people dislike tourists?

    A. Tourists come to enjoy the customs and beauty.

    B. Local people lose jobs.

    C. A lot of hotels are built.

    D. Too many tourists cause traffic problems.

    2. What can we do to solve the problems caused by tourism?

    A. Make plans properly.  B. Help the countrys economy.

    C. Build fewer hotels.   D. Advance the well-being of local people.

    3. If tourism grows too quickly, ___________.

    A. businesses will lose money 

    B. other parts of the countrys economy will make more money

    C. local people will be happier

    D. more local people will work for tourists. 

    4. If the writer wants to add Paragraph 5 to the passage, he may tell us ________.

    A. whether people need to build more hotels 

    B. whether people need to plan tourism properly

    C. how to deal with the problems above

    D. how to prevent tourism growing too quickly

    American country music is also known as country western music. It has a very long history. It comes from the folk songs of immigrants (移民) from Britain.

    Country music uses simple music and words to express everyday feelings such as loneliness, love and sadness. That is to say, country music describes life. It talks about friends and enemies, trucks and roads, farms and crops. People in many parts of the world like country music, because everyone can understand what the music is about.

    Country western music became popular first among cowboys (牛仔) from the American west countryside. Cowboys had to take care of cows day and night. When they were alone with the cows, they often sang beautiful and peaceful songs to calm the animals and to overcome their own fear. They were not well-educated so they sang about their daily life in very simple words. They played guitars, violins and other instruments. In the South of America, many people added instruments from their homes, like bottles and spoons. When cowboys visited their friends and families on holidays like Thanksgiving, they usually sang and played country western music.

    In recent years, many musicians have made country western music a little different from the one in the past. These changes make the songs sound even better. Today singers as Carth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Eddie Rabbit, LeAnn Rimes, Randy Travis and a group called Alabama are singing and playing in different styles.

    Rock-paper-scissors is a game played all around the world. Ever since we were kids. we have relied on it to deal with disagreements with friends——from which channel to watch to who gets to eat the last ice Cream——all because we think the results are completely random.

    But are they?

    Wang Zhijian, PhD, a professor at Zhejiang Universitybelieves that there is a regulation behind this simple game. So he gathered 360 students, divided them into

    groups of six and had each group play 300 rounds of rock-paper-scissors, reported USA Today.

    After the first results, Wang thought he was wrong, because players chose each of the three moves about one-third of the time, suggesting that the game is random after all. However, Wang later noticed a surprising regulation of behavior in the data. When players won a round, they usually stuck to the same choice. But when they

    lostthey tended to change to a more powerful move. For example, if Player A had

    just thrown down scissors to beat Player B's paperPlayer A was more likely to throw down scissors again while Player B was likely to choose rocksince rock beats scissors. According to Wang, this might be a function that is called conditional response.

    So, for the next step of his study, as he told BBC, Wang plans to do some research about how human brains make quick decisions when competing.

    Now that you've learned how to predict the moves of your opponent, youll have an advantage next time you play rock-paper-scissors with your friends. But there is one problemmake sure they havent read about Wang's study, or your advantage

    will disappear.

    Also, Wang pointed out that his predictions were made depending on the results of the prior round, so when it comes to the very first round, it is always a matter of chance. This means that if you and your friends want to decide something by only one round, the study wont be much help to you.

    1.What does the underlined word random in the first paragraph probably mean?

    A.Equal (平等的)B. Amusing                            C. Unpredictable    D. Strange

    2.which of the following is TRUE about  Wang Zhijian and his study?

    A. He found a new game theory called conditional response.

    B.He asked 360 students to play a total of 300 rounds of rock-paper-scissors.

    C.After studying the first several results, Wang discovered the pattern behind the game.

    D.The study suggested that the traditional belief that rock-paper-scissors game is random is wrong.


    3.According to the study, if play A has just used rock to beat Player Bs scissors, then A is more likely to choose   and B is more likely to choose  

    A.rockpaper  B. rock: scissors  C. scissor; rock  D. paper; scissors

    4.What will Wang study about rock-paper-scissors in the future, according to the article?

    A.The functions related to the game that are hard-wired into our brains.

    B.  How human brains make quick decisions when competing in the game.

    C. The psychological behind the players who always win the game.

    D. How to improve playersability to predict opponents moves.

        Most people are born with straight hair, but why are there people born with curly hair? It may look like a simple question that we can easily answer, but the answer is not as simple as it seems.

        The colour and shape of your hair are decided by your genes(基因). Whether you have straight hair or curly hair comes from your parents' genes. "If both your parents give you the curly version(版本) of the gene, you end up with curly hair, " Barry Starr, a geneticist at Stanford University, US, told Popular Science. If both give you the straight version you end up with straight hair. And if one gives you curly genes and the other straight, you could end up with either.  But how does DNA work on a single hair?

        Scientists show that the curls of hair depend on the nature of its follicle(毛囊). When a follicle is asymmetrical(不对称的), the hair that it produces is curl. Another point is that the follicle of curly hair has a hooked(钩状的) end. The more hooked the follicle is, the curlier the hair is. Follicles for straight hair have no hooks.

        But even if you are born with straight hair, there are some ways that straight hair can turn curly. Scientists have found that a cell(细胞) called EGFR in follicles appears to control the growth of hair. For example, certain cancer medicine that stop these cells may cause a patient to develop curly hair as a side effect.

    (    )1. The number of people born with curly hair is___ that of people born with straight hair.

             A. larger than                         B. smaller than

             C. twice as large as                 D. as big as

    (    )2. From Paragraph 2, we can know that ________.

             A. our genes can decide the length of our hair

             B. our parents' genes decide whether we have straight or curly hair

             C. Barry Starr is a geneticist from Popular Science

             D. If one boy's parents have straight hair, he may have curly hair

    (    )3. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to Paragraph 3?

             A The nature of hair's cells decides the curls of hair.

             B. If a follicle is asymmetrical, the hair produced is straight.

             C. If follicles for a girl's hair have no hooks, she may have curly hair.

             D. If follicles for a girl's hair have more hooked ends, she has curlier hair.

    (    )4. The passage is possibly from_______.

             A a novel                                    B. a poem

             C. a science book                    D. a news report

    Monarch butterflies from eastern Canada make the most amazing journey in the insect world. Each year, this butterfly travels about 3000miles to its winter home in central Mexico(墨西哥). How can it fly so far? And why does it make this long and dangerous trip? Scientists still don’t have an answer.

    For many years, people in Mexico wondered where the orange-and-black butterflies came from every winter. Then, in 1937, a scientist started to follow and study the butterflies. For the next 20 years, he discovered that one butterfly started its journey in Canada. Four months later, it arrived in Mexico.

    The length of the butterflies find their way back to the same place? Another amazing thing is that the butterflies always return to the same area in central Mexico.

    How do the butterflies find their way back to the same place? This is an interesting question because only every fourth generation()makes the trip south. In other words, the butterfly that travels to Mexico this year is the great-great-grandchild of the butterfly that traveled there last year.

    Each year, four generations of a Monarch butterfly family are born. Each generation of the family has a very different life. The first generation is born in the south in late April. It slowly moves north, reproduces(繁衍), and then dies. On the trip north,two more generations are born, reproduce, and die.

    Each of these generations of butterflies is born. This generation has a much longer life. It lives for about eight months. This generation of butterflies makes the amazing journey back to the winter home of its great-great-grandparents. The butterflies spend the winter there, and in the spring they reproduce and then die. Their offspring will be the first generation of the next circle of life.

    Today, people are still studying the Monarch butterfly. But they are not clear about everything.

    1.The best title of the passage can be ________.

    A.Family of Monarch butterflies

    B. Mystery of Monarch butterflies

    C.Monarch butterflies’ birthplace

    D.Monarch butterflies’ winter home

    2.It took the scientist ______ to find out that monarch butterflies came from Canada.

    A. 20 years          B. four months   C.five weeks         D.eight months

    3..We know that the _____ generation of Monarch butterflies travel back to central Mexico.

    A.first             B. second   C.third             D.fourth

    4.Which statement is true according to the text?

    A.Monarch butterflies spend winter in eastern Canada.

    B.The four generations have the same length of life.

    C.Some generations die on the way north to Canada.

    D.Scientists are clear about everything of the butterflies

    Can you imagine the very first modern Olympics in 1896 with no landing mats (海绵垫), no stopwatches and no photo finishes? In fact, cameras and stopwatches were not used until the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, USA. Thanks for technology, Olympics have been developing at an unbelievable speed.

        Today technology has completely changed sports. Take sports equipment for example. Electronic eyes hanging at the starting lines, together with digital cameras, could catch correct race time and also help to catch runners who “jump the gun”. As runners cross the finishing line, special digital cameras can also easily decide the winner. The days of “dead heats” are gone.

        Technological developments are also good for athletes. New sports suits, which get less wind effects, can help cut up to one-tenth of a second from runners’ race time. Top athletes, like Liu Xiang, are even provided with hand-made sports shoes. These shoes are made to fit the athlete exactly -- and there are some more changes in the shoes that meet each runner’s personal needs.

        Technology has also changed the way of many sports. Take one example -- the pole vault. The landing mat makes a big difference to the vaulting style as athletes no longer need to worry about hurting themselves as they fall. Without these worries, athletes could jump higher. New swimming pools have been used to help swimmers swim with easier effort and sports scientists have worked out a new swimming style to improve the speed.

    The increasing technological developments have led many sportsmen to suggest that the “Olympic spirit” is being lost in a rush to break records and win medals. Many developing countries say that technology has become too important in sport and that athletes from developing countries are disadvantaged. There are no easy answers but one thing is sure -- we cannot turn back times. Technology cannot go backwards.

    1.The underlined phrase “dead heats” means __________.

    A.      sports equipment which was out of date

    B.      runners who jumped the gun while running

    C.      diseases which killed runners in hot weather

    D.     races in which runners finished at the same time

    2.What infers from the fourth paragraph?

    A.      Scientists can measure the speed of swimming.

    B.      The pole vault was not quite safe in the past.

    C.      Pole vaulters jump lower with landing mats.

    D.     New pools have changed the style of swimming.

    3.The purpose of the writer in writing this article is _______.

    A.      to suggest we should keep up with the times

    B.      to suggest we reduce technology in Olympics

    C.      to suggest we train better athletes like Liu Xiang

    D.     to suggest we care more about developing countries
