Everyone has an ambition to travel. But those who cannot do so themselves might find it interesting to work in a travel agency, arranging journeys for other people. Brian Lawtey does this, working in a small travel agency in an industrial city. Most of his work is concerned with holiday, both at home and abroad. Every autumn, the agency sends out hundreds of booklets full of attractive, colored photographs, describing the holidays that their customers will be able to have the next year. Soon, people begin to come into the office to book their holidays: perhaps a week’s skiing in

One of the first things that Jim discovered while living with the Greens was that there were different television channels（频道）in Britain, the BBC broadcasts on two channels: BBC1 and BBC2. There is a mixture of serious and light programmes on BBC1; there are mainly serious programmes on BBC2. ITV is an independent（独立的）channel which carries advertisements（广告）. There are no advertisements on the BBC, so everyone must pay some money to the BBC each year. There are both serious and light programmes on ITV. Because of the different channels, it is not surprising that you often see each member in Mg. Green’s house wants to choose his or her own favorite channel. This is the sort of thing you hear:
“There’s sports programme on ITV.”
“What’s that, children?”
“We were wondering if we could watch the sports programme on ITV.”
“But I was wondering whether to watch the other programme on BBC1.” And so on. The children like ITV; mother prefers BBC1; father prefers BBC2. Jim hasn’t made up his mind.
66. We can conclude（推论）that Jim .
A. is a member of the Greens
B. had no idea whether to watch TV
C. was once a guest in the Greens
D. prefers ITV to the BBC
67. There are no advertisements on .
A. ITV B. BBC1 only C. BBC2 only D. BBC1, nor on BBC2
68. What programme did the children want to watch?
A. A sports programme. B. A serious programme.
C. A light programme. D. An advertisement.
69. Why do people have to pay some money each year?
A. Some of the TV channels are not free.
B. All of the TV channels are free
C. None of the TV channels are free.
D. People are not free to choose their favorite programmes.

IS IT TIME TO GET MP3?
Your computer has been playing music for years, one CD at a time. Now hundreds of songs can be stored in your PC (personal computer) if they’re in the MP3 format.
What is it?
MP3 compresses music into small computer friendly files. You access MP3 music several ways : Music can be downloaded from websites that have converted vast music libraries into MP3. Or you can prerecord CDs into your PC and convert songs in minutes into MP3. Once MP3 music is on your PC’s hard drive, you can play it through your computer’s speakers, “burn” it onto blank CDs or exchange MP3 files with friends using E-mail.
Software needed to play and convert MP3 music is often free. It comes preinstalled on most new computers or can be downloaded from many websites, including MP3. com. Some MP3 sites are free. Just type “MP3 sites” into any search engine. The popular MP3 players start at around $50and can hold hundreds of songs. A blank CD on which you can record music costs about a dollar.
MP3 turns your home PC into a tape recorder. Tiny MP3 players are the size of a card, making it easy to take hundreds of songs with you.
You may find that music at many sites is limited. And some only allow you to listen rather than download offerings. Others let you download music that then can’t be copied to MP3 players. And a growing number of new CDs make it impossible to copy songs to a computer.
9. How can you get MP3 music?
A. By turning your home PC into a tape recorder
B. By taking your own music or songs with you
C. By copying songs to a PC through the speakers.
D. By downloading from websites which have converted music libraries into MP3.

London, Reuters--What could annoy teenagers enough to make them stop hanging out with friends and go home？
No, it's not a visit from their mothers, and not a threat to take away their cellphones or pocket money.
It's high-frequency noise. The UK police recently agreed to use a device (装置) called the Sonic Teenager Deterrent. It sends out a sound that makes teenagers become so impatient and angry that they have to cover their ears tightly and walk away.
The sound is at extreme high-pitch that can be heard by those under 20. The body's natural ability to detect some wave bands (波段) decreases almost entirely after 20, so few adults can hear the sounds. The black-box device, nicknamed the Mosquito because of its sound, can be fixed to the outside walls of shops, offices and homes. It sounds to youngsters like a crazy insect or a badly played violin. But it causes no physical damage.
A number of police forces and councils have given permission to use the system and want to install it at trouble spots.
Staffordshire Police Inspector Amanda Davies, who has given the device to shopkeepers in the Moorlands area, said," It is controlled by the shopkeepers--if they can see through their window that there is a problem, they turn the device on for a while until the group has run away."
56. The device can be used to ____________.
A. threaten teenagers in public B. drive away trouble-makers under 20
C. help mothers control their teenage children D. help the police control shopkeepers
57. From the passage we can know that ___________.
A. young people often suffer from pains in ears
B. shopkeepers are troubled by noisy insects
C. high-frequency noise is beyond the listening ability of people' over 20
D. the police invented a new device to deal with teenagers
58. The purpose of the writer to write the passage is ________.
A. to advertise a new hi-tech device
B. to tell the reader a piece of news
C. to sell the device to shopkeepers
D. to inform the public as the spokesman of the police
59. Who will welcome the device most?
A. Shopkeepers. B. The police. C. Young people. D. The producer.

So much to do, so little time. So much information, so little time to read. In this age there is more information than ever before. There is not enough time to read everything we want to read. However, you can take in and understand more information in shorter time through speed-reading. This article will not make you read 3 000 words per minute, but it will show you how to increase your speed greatly. You will also learn the basic techniques of speed reading, along with the dos and don'ts of speed-reading.
When you first learned to read, you would say the word out loud and sound it out. Then you might whisper the word because people can become annoyed when you read aloud. The stage you are now at is saying the word in your head. Most people tend to read this way. Saying the word in your head will cut your reading speed tremendously (极大的).
How do you calculate your reading speed? The speed is measured by how many words per minute you can read. Get some reading material, preferably a book. Find out how many words are on the page. Time yourself one minute. Start your timer and start reading. When the timer sounds, stop at once. If you counted 500 words on the page and you read half of the page, then you are probably reading at 250 words per minute.
The first thing about speed-reading is looking at the word and recognizing it. Don't say the word in your mind, just look at it and recognize its appearance. Later you will recognize groups of four words or more to increase your speed. This is the first and most important step in speed-reading.
The next step is technique. As with any other skill, speed-reading requires technique. You should first be sitting up straight with your book on a horizontal (水平的) surface, such as a table or desk. Next, should be able to see the entire page. This is necessary if you want to recognize clumps of words. Lastly, you should be focused. It's hard to read with a lot of noise. Find a quiet place to read. This will help your understanding of the text. You need something to guide your eyes while reading. Then right, you should use your hand. Remember when you were little, you would read using your finger. That is a great technique, only now you're using your hand to underline each line. Move your finger smoothly across page. No need to go rush, start out slow. Keep your eyes focused on words as you recognize them while using your hand as a guide. This will increase your speed.
The third step is practice. Practice makes perfect. Set time intervals (间歇). Read using different techniques, but make sure you understand what you're reading.
72. Which of the following statements is true according to the text?
A. Now there is limited information than ever before.
B. Now conditions ask people to use less time to know more information.
C. Now people can read what they like.
D. The less you read, the more time you will spend.
73. What is the subject discussed in the text?
A. What speed-reading is.
B. Why we need speed-reading.
C. Now it is much information time.
D. People should practice speed-reading in different kinds of ways.
74. The underlined sentence “you should be focused” in the fifth paragraph means that _________.
A. a person should devote his attention to it while reading
B. your feelings will be hurt while reading
C. a person should smooth away difficulties while he reads
D. you should pay attention to your faults while you are reading
75. To speed up your reading, you should_________.
A. sit up straight with your book flat and use something to guide your eyes
B. say every word out loud and sound it out
C. know it is necessary to read quickly
D. underline some important words while you say them
