Part III   Reading Comprehension  (30 points)
Directions: There are three passages in this part. Each passage is followed by five questions. For each question there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. You should decide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.
Children in the United States are exposed to many influences other than that of their families. Television is the most significant of these influences, because the habit of watching television usually begins before children start attending school.
Parents are concerned about the lack of quality in television programs for children. The degree of violence in many of these shows also worries them. Studies indicate that, when children are exposed to violence, they may become aggressive or insecure.
Parents are also concerned about the commercials (商业广告) that their children see on television. Many parents would like to see fewer commercials during programs for children. And some parents feel that these shows should not have any commercials at all because young minds are not mature enough to deal with the claims made by advertisers.
Educational television has no commercials and has programs for children that many parents approve of. The most famous of these is Sesame Street, which tries to give preschool children a head start in learning the alphabet (字母) and numbers. It also tries to teach children useful things about the world in which they live.
Even though most parents and educators give Sesame Street and shows like it high marks for quality, some critics argue that all television, whether educational or not, is harmful to children. These critics feel that the habit of watching hours of television every day turns children into bored and passive (被动的) consumers of their world rather than encouraging them to become active explorers of it.

A．Parents are worried about the influence from television on their children.

Trees are useful to man in three very important ways: they provide him wood and other products they give him shade and they help to prevent drought (干旱) and floods.
Unfortunately, in many parts of the world, man has not realized that the third of these services is the most important. In his eagerness to draw quick profit from the trees, he has cut them down in large numbers.
Two thousand years ago, a rich and powerful country cut down its trees to build warships, with which to gain itself an empire. It gained the empire but, without its trees, its soil became bare and poor. When the empire fell to pieces, the country found itself faced by floods and starvation.
Even where a government realizes the importance of a plentiful supply of trees, it is difficult sometimes to make the people realize this. They cut down the trees but are too careless to plant and look after new trees. So, unless the government has a good system of control, or can educate the people, the forests slowly disappear.
This does not only mean that there will be fewer trees. The results are even more serious: for where there are trees, their roots break the soil up, allowing the rain to sink in, and also bind the soil. This prevents the soil from being washed away. But where there are no trees, the rain falls on hard ground and flows away on the surface, and this causes floods and the rain carries away the rich topsoil in which crops grow. When all the topsoil is gone, nothing remains but worthless desert.
36. Trees are useful to man mainly in three ways, the most important of which is that they can ____________.
A. keep him from the hot sunshine
B. enable him to build warships
C. make him draw quick profit from them
D. protect him from droughts and floods
37. It’s a great pity that ____________.
A. man is only interested in building empires
B. man is not eager to make profits from trees
C. man hasn’t realized the importance of trees to him
D. man hasn’t found out that he has lost all trees
38. Sooner or later the forests will disappear_________________________.
A. unless a country has a plenty supply of trees
B. unless people stop cutting down their trees
C. unless all people are taught the importance of planting trees
D. unless the government punishes those who cut trees instead of planting them
39. The word “bind” in Paragraph 5 means “_______________”.
A. to wash away
B. to make wet
C. to make stay together
D. to improve
40. When there is a heavy rain, trees can help to prevent floods, as they can _____________.
A. keep rain from falling down to soft ground
B. make it possible for the soil to allow rainwater to sink in
C. prevent the soil from being washed away
D. make the topsoil stick together
Do you find getting up in the morning so difficult that it’s painful? This might be called laziness, but Dr. Kleitman has a new explanation. He has proved that everyone has a daily energy cycle.
During the hours when you labor through your work, you may say that you’re “hot”. That’s true. The time of day when you feel most energetic (精力充沛) is when your cycle of body temperature is at its peak. For some people the peak comes before noon. For others it comes in the afternoon or evening. No one has discovered why this is so, but it leads to such familiar sayings as: “Get up, John! You’re late for work again!” The possible explanation to the trouble is that John is at his temperature-and-energy peak in the evening. Much family quarrelling ends when husbands and wives realize what these energy cycles mean, and which cycle each member of the family has.
You can’t change your energy cycle, but you can learn to make your life fit it better. Habit can help, Dr. Kleitman believes. If your energy is low in the morning but you have an important job to do early in the day, rise before your usual hour. This won’t change your cycle, but you’ll work better at your low point.
Get off to a slow start which saves your energy. When you get up, sit on the edge of the bed a minute before putting your feet on the floor. Avoid the troublesome search for clean clothes by laying them out the night before. Whenever possible, do routine work in the afternoon and save tasks requiring more energy or concentration for your sharper hours.
41. According to the new findings of Dr. Kleitman, if a person finds getting up early a problem, most probably __________________.
A. he is a lazy person
B. he refuses to follow his own energy cycle
C. he is not sure when his energy is low
D. he is at his energy peak in the afternoon or evening
42. Which of the following may lead to family quarrels according to the passage?
A. Unawareness of energy cycles.
B. Familiar saying.
C. A change in a family member’s energy cycle.
D. Attempts to control the energy cycle of other family members.
43. If one wants to work more efficiently at his low point in the morning, he should _________.
A. change his energy cycle
B. overcome his laziness
C. get up earlier than usual
D. go to bed earlier
44. You are advised to act slow when you rise in the morning because it will ____________.
A. help to keep your energy for the day’s work
B. help you to control your mood early in the day
C. enable you to concentrate on your routine work
D. keep your energy cycle under control all day
45. Which of the following statements is NOT true?
A. Getting off to work with a minimum effort helps save one’s energy.
B. Dr. Kleitman explains why people reach their peak at different hours of day.
C. Habit helps one adapt to his own energy cycle.
D. Children have energy cycles, too.
