Foreign drivers will have a pay on-the-spot fines of up to ￡900 for breaking the traffic law to be carried our next month.

Find Which Direction Is South
Do you have a good sense of direction? If not, please take with you a compass. But if you forget to take a compass, you can still find your way.
It’s never a good idea to imagine that the family member who was entrusted（委托）with the job of map-reading actually knows where the family is. You can tell by the slightly confused load on their faces that nothing on the ground seems to match the map. Never mind. The shu is shining and it’s still morning. If you don’t know the exact time, you can still find out where south is, but you’ll need to be patient.
①Find a straight sick and put it in the ground in a place where you can mark its shadow.
②Try to position the stick as vertically（垂直）as you can. You can check this by making a simple plumb line （铅锤线）with a piece of string and weight. You haven’t got any string? OK, use a thread from your clothes with a button tied at the end to act as a weight.
③Mark the end of the shadow cast by the stick.
④Wait approximately half an hour and mark the end of the shadow again.
⑤Keep doing this until you have made several marks.
⑥The mark nearest the stick will represent the shortest shadow, which is cast at midday, when the sun is highest in the sky and pointing to the exact south.
⑦Pick a point in the distance along the line between the shortest shadow and the stick.
⑧That point is south of where you are.
⑨Now you can turn the map, like you did before, and find which way you should be travelling.
68. To find the direction, we ought to be patient probably because
A. it is not easy to find a proper stick B. it is not easy to position the stick
C. it takes hours to make the marks D. it takes about half an hour to make the marks
69. The passage would probably be most helpful to .
A. those who draw maps B. those who get lost
C. those who make compasses D. those who do experiments
70. Which of the following pictures best shows the way of finding the direction of south?
71. The author presents this passage by .
A. telling an interesting story B. describing an activity in a lively way
C. testing an idea by reasoning D. introducing a practical method
We already know the fastest, least expensive way to slow climate change: Use less energy. With a little effort, and not much money, most of us could reduce our energy diets by 25 percent or more―doing the Earth a favor while also helping our wallets.
Not long age. My wife, PJ, and I tried a new diet―not to lose a little weight but to answer an annoying question about climate change. Scientists have reported recently that the world is bending up even faster than predicted only a few years ago, and that the consequences could be severe if we don’t keep reducing emissions（排放）of carbon dioxide（CO2）and other greenhouse gases that are trapping heat in our atmosphere.
We decided to try an experiment. For one month we recorded our personal emissions of CO2. . We wanted to see how much we could cut back, so we went on a strict diet. The average US household（家庭）produces about 150 pounds of CO2 a day by doing common-place things like turning on air-conditioning or driving cars. That’s more than twice the European average and almost five times the global average, mostly because Americans drive more and have bigger houses. But how much should we try to reduce?
For an answer, I checked with Tim Flannery, author of The Weather Makers: How Man Is Changing the Climate and What It Means for Life on Earth. In his book, he had challenged readers to make deep cuts in personal emissions to keep the world from reaching extremely important tipping points, such as the melting（融化）of the ice sheets in Greenland or West Antarctica. “To stay below that point, we need to reduce CO2 emissions by 80 percent,” he said.
Good advice, I thought. I’d opened our bedroom windows to let in the wind. We’d gotten so used to keeping our air-conditioning going around the clock. I’d almost forgotten the windows even opened. We should not let this happen again. It’s time for us to change our habits if necessary.
72. Why did the author and his wife try a new diet?
A. To take special kinds of food B. To respond to climate change.
C. To lose weight D. To improve their health
73. The underlined words “tipping points” most probably refer to
A. freezing points B. burning points C. melting points D. boiling points
74. It can be inferred from the passage that
A. it is necessary to keep the air-conditioning on all the time
B. it seems possible for every household to cut emissions of CO2
C. the average
D. the average European household produces about 1,000 pounds of CO2 a month
Composition, which i the following steps.
Firstly, we should read the topic c and organize our ideas.
Then we start to shape our thoughts our own word and finish
our writing in the g time. After that, we have to check our

advice on how to improve our writing. If （可能）, we may leave

Sometimes we cry because we are sad and sometimes because we are extremely happy An irritant（刺激物）, such as onion smell or grains of sand in the eye, can also make cry In this case tears perform an obvious role in getting rid of substances（物质）that might harm the surface of the eye
Dr William Frey of the Dry Eye and Tear Research Center at St Paul in Minnesota,
So far, Dr Frey has failed to find out the difference between emotional tears and tears caused by an irritant in the eye This may be because these substances themselves cause a degree of stress land emotion What he has identified in all tears is a variety of biochemicals（生化物）which are one of。If the causes of stress A more detailed study may help us understand why sufferers from stress-related disorders cry less often than healthy people Dr Frey is also interested to see if there are any physiological（生理学的）explanations for why women, in general, cry five times more often than men, on average
68 The main purpose of Dr Frey’s study of tears is to
A show that there are two types of tears, caused by irritants and by emotions
B find out the cause of stress-related problems and emotional disorders
C explain why women cry more often than men
D prove that tears can remove a chemical in the blood caused by strong emotions

B Irritants in the eye result in tears without causing stress and emotion

D substances that might not harm the surface of the eye
The audience nodded in agreement when the speaker, a teacher from a community college, said, “High school English teachers are not doing their jobs.”He described the shortcomings of his students, all high school graduates who can use language only at Grade 9 level. I was unable to determine from his answers to my questions ho. w this grade 9 level had been raised.
My topic is neither standards nor its decline（衰退）. What the speaker was really saying is that he is no longer young; he has been teaching for sixteen years, and is able to think and speak like an adult.
My point is that the frequent complaint（抱怨）of one generation about the next is unavoidable. It is also human nature to look for the reason for our dissatisfaction. Before English became a school subject in the late nineteenth century, it was difficult to find the target of the blame for language limitation. But since then, English teachers have been under constant attack.
The complainers think they have hit upon an original idea. As their own command of the language improves, they notice that young people do not have this same ability. Unaware that their own ability has developed through the years, they take as true the new generation of young people must be hopeless in this respect. To the eyes and ears of adults the language of the young never seems enough.
Since this concern about the fall of the English language is not taken as a generation phenomenon but rather as something new to today’s young people, it naturally follows that today’s English teachers cannot be doing their jobs. Otherwise, young people would not make mistakes of the language.
72. The speaker the author mentioned in the passage believed that
A. the language of the younger generation is usually better than that of the older generation
B. students had a poor command of English because they didn’t work hard
C. he was an excellent teacher because he had been teaching English for 60 years
D. English teachers should be responsible for the students’ poor command of English
73. In the author’s opinion, the speaker .
A. gave a correct judgment of the English level of the students
B. had made the language problems of the students seem larger
C. was fight in saying that English teachers were not doing their jobs
