Any mistake made in the printing of a stamp raises its value to stamp collectors. A mistake on a two-penny stamp has made it worth a million and a half times its face value. Maybe you think it impossible. But it is true. And this is how it happened. The mistake was made more than a hundred years ago in the former British colony(殖民地)of Mauritius, a small island in the Indian Ocean. In 1847 and order for stamps was sent to London. Mauritius was about to become the fourth country in the world to put out stamps. Before the order was filled and the stamps arrived from England, a big dance was planned by the commander-in-chief of all the armed forces on the island. The dance would be held in his house and letters of invitation would be sent to all the important people in Mauritius. Stamps were badly needed to post the letters. Therefore, an islander, who was a good printer, was told to copy the pattern of the stamps. He carelessly put the word “Post Office” instead of “Post Paid”, two words seen on stamps at that time, on the several hundred that he printed. Today, there are only twenty-six of these misprinted stamps left --- fourteen One-penny Reds and twelve Two-penny Blues. Because there are so few Two-Penny Blues and because of their age, collectors have paid as much as $16,800 for one of them. 1. When a mistake is made in the printing of the stamp, the stamp _____________. A. will become useless and thrown away B. is worth no more than its face value C. is well worth buying D. may increase in value 2. Why did Mauritius print some stamps too? Because _____________. A. London stamps were not well printed B. London would not print them C. invitations to a big dance had to be posted quickly D. Mauritius had a very good printer 3. The mistake on the island-printed stamps was in the ___________. A. price B. design C. spelling of words D. wrong use of words 4. What can be inferred from the passage? A. In the 1840’s most countries of the world were not yet using stamps B. Only in England were stamps printed C. All people like to buy misprinted stamps D. Stamps with printing mistakes are worth more than sixteen thousand dollars B In the United States the most popular form of folk dancing since the earliest days has been square dancing. In early times, when men and women worked in groups to build a barn (building where grain or animals kept) or harvest crops, they danced when the work was done. The music came from a violin from the most part, but if there was no one to play an instrument, clapping hands was used to produce the rhythm by which to dance. The early settlers danced in a store, in a barn, or in a farm kitchen. A square is formed by four couples who stand facing the center of the square. Each couple stands on one side of the square, the boy on the left and girl on the right. The caller is an important part of the dance since he tells the dancers which steps to do. If the dancers do not know the steps, he teaches them. It takes time for a learner to be a good caller, and good callers are always in need. These are the names of some of the steps the dancers do. Form a square; Circle; Honour your partner; Promenade (walk about slowly); Swing your partner; Form a star. There are many more. As the caller tells the dancers what to do next, they move to form the pattern he calls. Large or small numbers of people can dance at one time. Sometimes 800 or 1,000 people may be dancing at the same time. Or there may be only one square of eight people. Special clothes are worn by dancers while dancing, which makes the dancing more colorful to watch. The Special clothes tumecoses are different from place to place. Women often were full skirts of various colors with a pretty blouse. Men have colored shirts and western trousers which they wear only when square dancing. In some country areas, everyone wears his best clothes. Today in all parts of the United States you will find some school, club, or other group square-dancing for fun. 5. From the passage we know that square dancing came from __________. A. the clubs B. the schools C. the countryside D. big cities 6. How many steps do the dancers usually do while square dancing? A. At the most five B. At least six C. At the most nine D. at least one thousand 7. Which of the following statements is TRUE? A. The caller is the most beautiful person in square dancing. B. It’s easy to learn to be a good caller. C. The caller plays an important in square dancing D. There are always enough good callers 8. If 1,000 people dance at the same time, how many squares can be formed? A. Over 100 squares B. 1,000 squares. C. Only on big square. D. Less than 100 square.

D It is common for older people to forget things. Now an American study has found that memory starts to fail when we are young adults. People younger than thirty years of age usually do not know that they are starting to forget information. But scientists from the University of Michigan say the loss of memory has usually already started. Researchers say people do not observe this slow reduction in mental ability until the loss affects their everyday activities. Denise Park led the new study, directing the Centre for Aging and Cognition at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan. Her team studied more than 350 men and women between the ages of twenty and ninety years. The study identified people in their middle twenties with memory problems. She says young adults do not know they are forgetting things because their brains have more information than they need. But she says that people in their twenties and thirties are losing memory at the same rate as people in their sixties and seventies. Ms. Park says people between the ages of sixty and seventy may note the decrease in their mental abilities. They begin to observe that they are having more trouble remembering and learning new information. The study found that older adults are more likely to remember false information as being true. For example, they remembered false medical claims as being true. Younger people remembered hearing the information. But they were more likely to remember that it was false. Ms. Park is now using modern imaging equipment to study what happens in the brains of people of different ages. She is studying what parts of the brain older adults use for different activities compared to younger adults. Ms. Park says mental performance is a direct result of brain activity and brain structure. She says keeping the brain active is important. She hopes future studies will identify ways to improve the operation of our aging minds. 13. The passage is meant to _________________. A. emphasize the importance of exercising the brain B. analyze the difference between different age groups on the loss of memory C. expose the decrease in mental ability of young adults as well as older adults D. introduce effective ways to improve memory 14. According to the passage, young adults differ from older adults in that ________. A. they lose their memory at a slower rate B. they rarely realize they have memory problems C. their brains can store much more information D. all of the above 15. It can be inferred from what Denis Park says that ___________. A. mental performance can be improved B. mental ability is determined entirely by brain structure D. different parts of the brain are responsible for different mental activities 第二节(共5小题;每小题2分,满分10分) 根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 These years traveling abroad is becoming more and more popular with ordinary Chinese people.
