Ⅱ．Cloze Test(10 points，1 point each)
From Monday to Friday most people are busy working or studying, but in the evenings and at weekends they are free and 11themselves. Some watch television or go to the movies, others12sports. This is decided by their own interests.
There are many different ways to spend our free time.
Almost everyone has some kind of13 : it may be something from collecting stamps to 14model planes. Some hobbies are very15 ,but others don’t cost anything at all. Some collections are worth a lot of money; others are valuable only to their owners.
I know a man who has a coin collection worth several16dollars. A short time ago he bought a rare fifty-cent piece which 17him $250!

Ⅲ. Reading Comprehension(30 points，2 points each)
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage．
What will man be like in the future-in 5000 or even 50,000 years from now? We can only make guesses, of course, but we can be sure that he will be different from what he is today. For man is slowly changing all the time.
Let us take an obvious example. Man, even five hundred years ago, was shorter than he is today. Now, on average, men are about three inches taller. Five hundred years is relatively short period of time, so we may assume that man will continue to grow taller. Again, in the modern world we use our brains a great deal. Even so, we still make use of only about 20% of the brain's capacity. As time goes on, however, we shall have to use our brains more and more, and eventually we shall need larger ones! This is likely to bring about a physical change to the head, in particular the forehead, will grow larger.
Nowadays our eyes are in constant use. In fact, we use them so much that very often they become weaker and we have to wear glasses. But over very long period of time it is likely that man's eyes will grow stronger.
On the other hand, we tend to make less use of our arms and legs. These, as a result, are likely to grow weaker. At the same time, however, our fingers will grow more sensitive because they are used a great deal in modern life.
But what about hair? This will probably disappear from the body altogether in course of time because it does not serve a useful purpose any longer. In the future, then, both sexes are likely to be bald.
Perhaps all this gives the impression that future man will not be a very attractive creature to look at! This may well be true. All the same, in spite of all these changes, future man will still have a lot in common with use. He will still be a human being, with thoughts and emotions similar to our own.
21. The passage mainly tells us that____.
A. man's life will be different in the future
B. future man will look quite different from us
C. man is growing taller and uglier as time passes
D. man's organs' functions will be on the change
22. What serves as the evidence that man is changing?
A. Man has got stronger eyes now than he ever had.
B. Man's hair is getting thinner and thinner.
C. Man's arms and legs have become lighter and weaker.
D. Man has been growing taller over the past 500 years.
23. The change in man's size of forehead is probably because____
A. he makes use only 20 % of the brain's capacity.
B. his brain has grown larger over the past centuries.
C. the other 80% of his brain will grow in due time.
D. he will use his brain more and more as time goes on.
24. What is true about a human being in the future?
A. He is hairless because hair is no longer useful.
B. He has smaller eyes and wears better glasses.
C. His fingers grow weaker because he doesn't have to make use of them.
D. He thinks and feels in different way.

A. human beings will become less attractive in the future.

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage
Many people go to school for an education. They learn languages, history, politics, geography, physics, chemistry and mathematics. Others go to school to learn a skill so that they can make a living. School education is very important and useful. Yet, no one can learn everything from school. A teacher, no matter how much he knows, can not teach his students everything they want to know. The teacher’s job is to show his students how to learn. He teaches them how to read and how to think. So, much more is to be learned outside school by the students themselves.
It is always more important to know how to study by oneself than to memorize some facts or a formula. It is actually quite easy to learn a certain fact in history or a formula in mathematics. But it is very difficult to use a formula in working out a math problem. Great scientists before us didn’t get everything from school. Their teachers only showed them the way. Edison didn’t even finish primary school. But they were all so successful. They invented so many things for mankind. The reason for their success is that they knew how to study. They read books that were not taught at school. They would ask many questions as they read. They did thousands of experiments. They worked hard all their lives, wasting not a single moment. Above all, they knew how to use their brain.

I will greet this day with love in my heart.
And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and I will be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.
