    The clock struck eleven at night. The whole house was quiet. Everyone was in bed except me. Under the strong light, I looked sadly before me at a huge pile of that troublesome stuff they call “books”.

       I was going to have my examination the next day. “When can I go to bed?” I asked myself. I didn’t answer. In fact I dared not.

       The clock struck twelve. “Oh, dear!” I cried. “Ten more books to read before I can go to bed!” We pupils are the most wretched creatures in the world. Dad does not agree with me on this. He did not have to work so hard when he was a boy.

       The clock struck one. I was quite desperate now. I forgot all I had learned. I was too tired to go on. I did the only thing I could. I prayed, “Oh God, please help me pass the exam tomorrow. I do promise to work hard afterwards, Amen.” My eyes were so heavy that I could hardly open them. A few minutes later, with my head on the desk, I fell asleep.

    The wedding took place in a Birmingham hotel. The bride and her father arrived in a new black American sports car. Her father looked nervous and uncomfortable in front of the cameras. The bride wore a silk wedding dress. She smiled nervously at the waiting photographers and went to a room on the first floor where she met her future husband for the very first time.

    Carla Germaine and Greg Cordell were the winners of a radio station’s competition. The aim of the competition was to find two strangers prepared to marry without having met each other. Miss Germaine, 23, is a model. Mr. Cordell, 27, is a TV salesman. They were among the two hundred people who entered for a particular “experiment” organized by BMRB radio in Birmingham, England. Greg and Carla were among eight finalists who were interviewed live on radio. They took a lie detector test and the station also spoke to their friends and family about their personalities. The competition judges included an astrologer(占卜家)who declared that they were suited.

    The couple celebrated their wedding with a wedding breakfast and a party for 100 guests in the evening, but not everyone shared their joy. Miss Germaine’s mother looked anxious throughout the wedding and Mr. Cordell’s parents are reported to be less than delighted.

    Organizations, including the marriage guidance service Relate, have criticized the marriage. As one expert put it, “we have enough problems getting young people to take marriage seriously. Marriage should always be about love.”

    The couples are now on a Caribbean honeymoon followed by journalists. Their other prizes include a year’s free use of a wonderful apartment in the centre of Birmingham, and a car. But will it last?

    28. How did the couple’s parents react to the wedding?

      D. The bride’s father felt uncomfortable about the wedding.

    29. Some experts believe that ________.

      A. marriage without the couple’s meeting each other first ends up in divorce.

      B. most young people take marriage seriously except this couple.

      C. taking a lie detector test can not solve all the marriage problems.

      D. young people nowadays are too careless about marriage.

    30. One of the prizes for the couple is ________.

      A. to use an apartment free for some time.

      B. to spend their honeymoon wherever they like.

      C. to have a wedding dress free.

      A. A Marriage Based on Love.          B. A Short-lived Marriage. 

      C. Two Strangers and a Wedding.         D. A Well-matched Couple.

    At first sight, you would think the collection of hundreds of colored shards(碎片)could be a work of abstract art. But the objects are the contents of the stomach of a sea turtle that lost its battle against plastic pollution.

    Environmentalists examined the stomach of the turtle found off the coast of Argentina. What they found is the symptom(征兆;症状) of the increasing threat to sea turtles from a human addiction to plastic.

    Sea turtles often mistake plastic items for jellyfish or other food. Ingesting(摄取)ocean pollution can cause a digestive blockage(消化堵塞) and internal cuts. The result can be dangerous, followed by death.

    Humans produce 260 million tons of plastic a year. When those products are pulled into the sea’s currents, the plastics are just broken into smaller pieces which are consumed by marine life at the bottom of the food chain. An examination of a green turtle found off Florida discovered that, over the course of a month, the animal’s faeces(粪便)had contained 74 foreign objects, including “four types of balloons, different types of hard plastic, a piece of carpet-like material and two 2-4 mm tar balls(原油球块).”

    “The oceans have become a giant refuse bin(垃圾箱;废渣仓)for all manner of plastics. All sea turtle species may be seriously harmed.”, according to the biologists Colette Wabnitz, from the University of British Columbia, “The symptom of this growing crisis can be seen inside and on sea turtles as well as their oceanic and terrestrial habitats. It is urgently necessary to directly face the source of plastic pollution, redesign packaging and rethink the very idea of the ‘throwaway culture’.”

    “Almost all marine species, from plankton to whales, have ingested plastic. But, even in small quantities, plastic can kill sea turtles.” the biologists said.

    Fifty out of 92 turtles found dead, stranded(搁浅)on the shorelines of Rio Grande do Sul state in Brazil, had ingested a “considerable amount of man-made debris”.

    32. What’s the passage mainly about?

        A. Sea turtles suffering from plastic pollution.

        B. Why plastic is dangerous to the sea turtle.

        C. Protecting the sea turtle from being polluted.

        D. How to prevent the sea turtle from plastic.

    33. The author mentions the “throwaway culture” probably in a(n) _________ tone.

        A. favorable        B. positive        C. comedic       D. ironic   

    34. The underlined word in the last paragraph probably means _________.

        A. a kind of food                      B. pieces of rubbish

        C. pieces of cloth                      D. a kind of fish

    35. The paragraph following the last one will probably talk about ________.

        A. how to prevent plastic pollution

        B. some tips on how to make sea turtles avoid plastic

        C. the way the biologists examined the sea turtle

        D. the reason why we should protect the sea turtle
