I mean, have you tried 41 an insurance company lately? If you are kept 42 , you‘ll be forced to 43 some country or easy-listening type drivel(废话). Call your doctor‘s office, and the same thing 44 . How many times do you want to hear Eine Kleine Nacht‘s 45 in the daytime or ―Winter‖ from Vivadi‘s Four Seasons in the spring? 46 , I‘ve always thought that Handel‘s music was 47 and Vivadi‘s music was dull next to Handel‘s. I don‘t know how all this force-fed music got 48 . I suppose it was the background music in elevators. A few years ago, the governor of Georgia got the 49 that classical music was good for a 50 brain development. He actually got the legislature to appropriate (拨专款)
enough money to give every new mother a 51 music tape to take home with her. And you know 52 was probably on it? Eine Kleine Nacht‘s music and ―Winter‖. I‘ll bet that those 53 have done more to make babies 54 classical music than all the music appreciation 55 ever taught. And how about when you make a business call from your 56 and are forced to hear music while you have to wait to be 57 ?

Far too many people in financial problems are trapped in homes they can‘t sell, unable to move on to new centers of opportunity. The cities and regions with the lowest levels of homeownership—in the range of 55% to 60% like Los Angeles and New York—had healthier economies and higher incomes. They also had higher levels of happiness and well-being. I was shocked to read these interesting points that Richard Florida made in his recent article. Let me try to understand. The people in Detroit and St. Louis are less happy than the people in New York, and Los Angeles. And, the reason is because of home ownership rates? First, to compare them to New York City (the economic capital of the world), Los Angeles (the entertainment capital of the world) seems unfair. Most people in almost any other city in the world
might be less happy! Next, let‘s try a different way of determining whether renters are happier than homeowners. Why don‘t we ask them? Fannie Mae‘s National Housing Survey 2010 reported: 75% of current renters believe owning a home makes more sense. 67% plan to buy a home at some point in the future. When they asked current renters for the major reason to buy a house, these were their answers (they could pick several answers): 78% said it was a good place to raise children. 75% said because they would feel safe. 70% said because you have control your own space. If you believe renters are happier, you would also have to believe the majority enjoy living in a less safe environment, which wouldn‘t be a good place to raise children and would be a place where they have less control of their space. 61. Which of the following is a fact? A. People in Los Angeles earn high incomes because of its low homeownership rate. B. New York‘s low homeownership rate increases people‘s happiness levels. C. Detroit‘s high level of homeownership causes its economic problems. D. St. Louis has a higher level of homeownership than Los Angeles. 62. In his article, Richard Florida tried to express that ________. A. people in Los Angeles are happier than those in St. Louis B. Renting a house is better than owning a house C. Detroit‘s economy is healthier than New York‘s economy D. New York and Los Angeles are happiest cities 63. The writer believes that New York Cities and Los Angeles________. A. pay employee highest wages in America B. benefit from low levels of homeownership C. are leading cities across the globe D. are best American cities to live in 64. From Fannie Mae‘s survey report, we can know that________. A. paying rent makes more sense B. most homeowners plan to sell their houses C. most renters prefer to become homeowners D. parents need to buy a house for their children 65. According to the passage, current renters‘ reasons to buy a house are the follows except ___________. A. to have a good place to raise children B. to live in a safer environment C. to make money D. to have control of their own space B Su Hua is studying at Cambridge, UK. She has bought a bicycle and is worried about security. Her friend, Kate, found this article and sent it to her. Introduction 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). Locks Get a good lock. There are many different types in the shop. Buy one that has been tested against attack. Ask for a recommendation from a bike shop. Marking Security marking your bike can act as 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. Registration 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. Finally 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. 66. Which part of the article gives you information on how to lock up your bicycle when you leave it? A. Locks B. Marking C. Registration D. Basic Security 67. 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 68. The article advises you to keep a record of your bicycle ____________. A. in the bike shop and your computer B. in a police station and security company C. in a security company and your university D. by yourself and in a security company 69. 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 shouldn‘t keep your bicycle in a quiet place C The Beijing government has set out to recruit thousands of university graduates to work as junior officials in rural areas to both improve rural administration and ease the city's employment problems. The government plans to recruit 3,000 university graduates this year, 1,000 more than last year, to work as assistants to village heads or Party secretaries in suburban areas. People interested in jobs in Beijing's rural villages and townships can submit applications to the Beijing Municipal Personnel Bureau or online at www. Bjbys.com from February 1 through March 15.
"We hope university graduates will seize this opportunity to use their knowledge in rural villages and to start their careers," Sun Zhenyu, deputy director of Beijing Personnel Bureau, told Xinhua News Agency. The government has promised successful candidates a monthly salary of 2,000 yuan( $ 250) in the first year, 2,500 yuan ($ 320) the second year and 3,000 yuan ($ 385) the third year, provided their performance is up to the required standards, Sun said. Wang Lina, who graduated from Beijing Union University last year, was one of the first graduates to find work in the city's countryside. After majoring in industrial and commercial administration, Wang served as the assistant to the village head of Ertiaojie Village in suburban Beijings Pinggu District. For one project, Wang contacted people at the Beijing Academy of Agricultural Sciences and arranged for the local farmers to receive training in strawberry planting. Her efforts paid off. The village had a plentiful harvest of organic strawberries earlier this year. Nationwide, about 150,000 university graduates found employment in rural areas last year, according to figures provided by the Ministry of Education. The ministry predicts that 4. 95 million students will graduate from universities across the country this year, 820,000 more than last year. About 1.4 million of them are unlikely to find jobs when they graduate. In Beijing, a record 200,000 people are expected to graduate from university this year. Less than half of them are expected to be offered jobs, according to the personnel bureau. 70. The underlined word "recruit "in the first paragraph probably means ___________.

A. once you are hired as a junior official, you can get an endlessly rising salary B. the government guarantee a relatively high salary for the successful candidates C. working as junior officials is easy but very meaningful D. the competition for the job as junior officials is very fierce 72.

B. local farmers can get big harvests if they learn more knowledge. C. university graduates can also realize their value in rural areas. D. Wang had great difficulty in helping villagers planting organic strawberries. 73. The last two paragraphs aim to tell us that _____________________.

Which of the following can be the best title for this passage? A. Go to the Countryside B. A good Job Choice for University Graduates C. What Is the Best Career? D. Difficulty for University Graduates D It had been some time since Jack had seen the old man. College, career, and life itself got in
the way. In fact, Jack moved clear across the country in pursuit of his dreams. There, in the rush of his busy life, Jack had little time to think about the past and often no time to spend with his wife and son. He was working on his future, and nothing could stop him. Over the phone, his mother told him, ―Mr. Belser died last night. The funeral is Wednesday.‖ Memories flashed through his mind like an old newsreel as he sat quietly remembering his childhood days. ―Jack, did you hear me?‖ ―Oh, sorry, Mom. Yes, I heard you. It‘s been so long since I thought of him. I‘m sorry, but I honestly thought he died years ago,‖ Jack said. “Well, he didn‘t forget you. Every time I saw him he‘d ask how you were doing. He‘d reminisce(回忆) about the many days you spent over ‘his side of the fence’ as he put it,” Mom told him. ―I loved that old house he lived in,‖ Jack said. ―You know, Jack, after your father died, Mr. Belser stepped in to make sure you had a man‘s influence in your life,‖ she said. ―He‘s the one who taught me carpentry. I wouldn‘t be in this business if it weren‘t for him. He spent a lot of time teaching me things he thought were important… Mom, I‘ll be there for the funeral,‖ Jack said. Busy as he was, he kept his word. Jack caught the next flight to his hometown. Mr. Belser‘s funeral was small and uneventful. He had no children of his own, and most of his relatives had passed away. The night before he had to return home, Jack and his Mom stopped by to see the old house next door one more time, which was exactly as he remembered. Every step held memories. Every picture, every piece of furniture… Jack stopped suddenly. ―What‘s wrong, Jack?‖ his Mom asked. ―The box is gone,‖ he said. ―What box?‖ Mom asked. ―There was a small gold box that he kept locked on top of his desk. I must have asked him a thousand times what was inside. All he‘d ever tell me was ?the thing I value most‘,‖ Jack said. It was gone. Everything about the house was exactly how Jack remembered it, except for the box, He figured someone from the Belser family had taken it. ―Now, I‘ll never know what was so valuable to him,‖ Jack said sadly. Returning to his office the next day, he found a package on his desk. The return address caught his attention. ―Mr. Harold Belser‖ it read. Jack tore open the package. There inside was the gold box and an envelope. Jack‘s hands shook as he read the note inside. ―Upon my death, please forward this box and its contents to Jack Bennett. It‘s the thing I valued most in my life. ‖ A small key was taped to the letter. His heart racing, and tears filling his eyes, Jack carefully unlocked the box. There inside he found a beautiful gold pocket watch. Running his fingers slowly over the fine cover, he opened it. Inside he found these words carved: ―Jack, Thanks for your time! Harold Belser. ‖ ―Oh, My God! This is the thing he valued most…‖ Jack held the watch for a few minutes, then called his assistant and cleared his appointments
for the next two days. ―Why?‖ his assistant asked. ―I need some time to spend with my son,‖ he said. 75. What can be inferred from the conversation between Jack and his mother? A. Mr. Belser died. B.
