A
Vincent Van Gogh was a man in a hurry, an artist of tremendous energy and prodigious (巨大的) output. He killed himself when he was only 37, but he left behind him more than 2,000 paintings and drawings, which established his reputation in a way he would never have considered possible.
Van Gogh was born on March 30, 1853 at Groot Zundert Province of Noord Nrabant in Dutch. He was the son of a clergyman. His first artist impressions were formed as a boy, from his uncle who was an art dealer. The motivation bore early fruit and from the age of 12 the young Vincent was drawing. The interest led to an apprenticeship (学徒) in an art dealer's firm, Groupil's, in the Hague. When he was only 20, he was transferred to the firm's London office.
In London Van Gogh faced his first major crisis, when he was rejected in love. After that, he turned to religion, expressed disapproval with art-dealing and neglected his work. Groupil transferred him from London to Paris but, when his work was still unsatisfactory, dismissed him in 1876.
The young Van Gogh made religion a consuming interest and during the next few years travelled in Britain, Belgium and Holland, trying to establish himself as a preacher (传道人), but without success.
In 1880, at the age of 27, he found himself drawn back to art. He had a job as an assistant evangelist(传教士) in the mining village of Borinage in Belgium but realized an artist drive which was to motivate him unceasingly until his death 10 years later.
Late in 1881, he moved to the Hague and established a relationship with a woman, Christine Hoornik, with whom he lived for a time. He broke with her in 1883, however, and never again established a significant intimate relationship with a woman.
In 1886 Van Gogh left Holland forever and travelled via Antwerp to Paris, and to major changes in artistic style. Van Gogh's work became more youthful in Paris. He lived with his brother, Theo, who managed the modern department of an art dealer's. A new, more animated, painting style emerged and the impressionist tendencies of earlier work weakened somewhat.
Van Gogh developed a taste for personalized brushwork and brilliant, unmixed colors. Among his most prominent experiments with color were a series of some 30 flower paintings, a fascination which stayed with him until his death.
16. When did Van Gogh die?
A. 1890 B. 1892 C. 1886 D. 1883
17. what made Van Gogh become interested in religion?
A. That he was dismissed by Groupil B. His experience in an art dealer's firm
C. That a girl refused his love D. His consuming interest in art
18. By saying "Vincent Van Gogh was a man in a hurry" in paragraph 1, the author means ______.
A. Van Gogh always did something in a hurry
B. Van Gogh tended to move from one place to another hurriedly
C. Van Gogh is a quick-tempered man
D. Van Gogh passed away very early
19. What's the right order of the events related to Van Gogh?
①He ended the relationship with Christine Hoornik.
②He lived with Theo in Paris.
③He failed to establish himself as a preacher
④He formed his first artist impressions from his uncle
⑤He worked as an apprentice in Groupil's company.
⑥He found himself interested in art again after several years of disapproval with art.
A. ④⑤③⑥①② B. ④⑤③⑥②①
C. ⑤④③⑥②① D. ④⑤③①⑥②
20. What is the author's attitude towards Van Gogh?
A. Critical B. Favorable C. Ironic D. Objective

All Ric O Barry wants is to stop the dolphin-killing, so he is headed to this seaside Japanese town, Taiji.The American activist, who is the star of a new award-winning documentary that portrays the dolphin-killing here, got an unwelcome reception when he showed up here this week for the start of the annual hunt.
His movie, The Cove(海豚湾), directed by National Geographic photographer Louie Psihoyos, was released in the United States a month ago but has not yet to come out in Japan.
Scenes in the film, some of which were shot secretly, show fishermen banging on metal poles stuck in the water to create a wall of sound that scares the dolphins-which have supersensitive sonar(声纳系统)-and sends them fleeing into a cove.
There, the fishermen sometimes pick a few to be sold for aquarium shows, for as much as $150,000.They kill the others, spearing(刺)the animals repeatedly until the water turns red.The meat from one dolphin is worth about 50,000 yen, and is sold at supermarkets across Japan.
Greenpeace and other groups have tried to stop the hunt for years.Activists hope The Cove will bring the issue to more people internationally-and eventually in Japan.
Already, the Australian town of Broome dropped its 28-year sister-city relationship with Taiji last month, partly because of the movie.
"Some regions have a tradition of eating dolphin meat," said fisheries official Toshinori Uoya."Dolphin-killing may be negative for our international image, but it is not something orders can stop."
The town government in Taiji-which has made whales and dolphins its trademark-refused to comment about The Cove, or the growing international criticism against dolphin-killing.
Many in Taiji take the dolphin hunt for granted as part of everyday life.They are defensive about The Cove, seeing themselves as powerless victims of overseas pressure to end a simple and honest way of making a living.
21.Ric O Barry made The Cove because he wanted to .
A.stop the dolphin-killing
B.win an international award
C.support Green peace's efforts
D.make Taiji well-known in the world
22.Viewers can learn from The Cove .
A.the advanced techniques to catch dolphins
B.the cruel and bloody dolphin-killing
C.the beautiful Japanese seaside town Taiji
D.the sale of dolphin meat around the world
23.What is the response to The Cove on the Japanese side?
A.Taiji broke up with its western sister-city Broome.
B.Japanese officials decided to ban dolphin-killing.
C.The town government in Taiji kept silent on criticism.
D.Most Japanese people were against eating dolphin meat.
24.What does the underlined word "defensive" probably mean?
A.Feeling guilty for killing dolphins.
B.Protecting themselves against criticism.
C.Attacking those against dolphin-killing.
D.Making the determination to change.
25.What can we infer from the passage?
A.Many people in Japan have seen The Cove in the cinema.
B.The Cove has not influenced Japan's international image.
C.Taiji's dolphin-killing industry has been seriously damaged.
D.The Cove has brought international attention to dolphin-killing.
C
Have you ever wondered what you would look like if you were an Asian, Middle Eastern, black, white or Indian person? By stepping into the Human Race Machine, you can find out. When you sit inside it, the machine creates a digital image of your face. After pushing certain buttons, the machine uses various photos of people of a certain ethnic group mixed with your own facial features. From this, it can come up with an image showing how you would look as a member of a different race.
The machine is part of a traveling retrospective (回顾展) called " Seeing and Believing: The Art of Nancy Burson." Burson is a famous American photographer and inventor. The show of 100 photos and multimedia works was on view at the Grey Art Gallery in New York on April 20.
"It is a strange feeling, just like stepping into someone else's skin." said Hathy Zajchenko, a museum visitor from Pennsylvania, US. As soon as she sat down, she tried out a range of ethnic groups. "The Middle Eastern image worked pretty well for me," she said with a smile.
According to Burson, the machine is a prayer for unity. It is about seeing through differences to find the things we all share in common. Burson added the database of Middle Eastern faces, both Arab and Jewish, after the terrorist attacks on September 11. "I have always wanted to allow people to see differently. I am a photographer. I am recording the unseen, because what we can not see is so much more interesting than what we can see," Burson said.
For those who missed the show, the Human Race machine will be on view at the New York Hall of Science in the Queens district full-time as of June.
26.The Human Race Machine can ____.
A. tell you what you would look like if you were a member of another ethnic group
B. create a digital image of your face and change it
C. turn your pray into reality
D. let people step into someone else's skin
27. The phrase "come up with" in the first paragraph means ____.
A. get nearer B. produce C. come out D. change
28.When Kathy Zajchenko said that the Middle Eastern image worked well for her, she meant that ____.
A. she would like to change her face
B. she had a strange feeling
C. she was satisfied with what she looked like as a Middle Eastern person
D. she could buy the Human Race machine
29. The underlined sentence "The machine is a prayer for unity." means _____ .
A. the Human Race machine can unite the facial feather of a different ethnic group with your own
B. the machine shows that no matter what race people are, there are some things we all have in common
C. one can pray before the machine
D. if you want, the machine can change your face
30. Burson added the database of Middle Eastern faces after the September 11 attack because ____.
A. she wanted to show people what terrorists look like
B. she wanted to record what people cannot see
C. she wanted to be famous as a photographer
D. she wanted to let people see the foreign people
D
  Ten years ago, Pierre Omidyar, a software engineer working in California's Silicon Valley, began thinking about how to use the internet for a trading system in which buyers and sellers could establish a genuine market price. Over a long holiday weekend he wrote the computer code. At first, a trickle (细流) of users arrived at his website-including his girlfriend, who traded PEZ candy dispensers. By the end of 1995, several thousand auctions had been completed and interest in eBay was growing. And it grew and grew. From this modest beginning, eBay has become a global giant, with around 150m registered users worldwide who are set to buy and sell goods worth more than $40 billion this year.
  The remarkable tale of eBay's growth points to some important lessons for any business trying to operate online-and today that includes, one way or another, most firms. The commercial opportunities presented by an expanding global web seem almost limitless. But the pace of change is rapid, and so is the ferocity(残暴)of competition. To succeed, firms need agility, an open mind and the ability to reinvent themselves repeatedly. Most of all, they need to listen carefully to their customers, paying close attention to what they do and don't want.
  Such qualities, of course, would be valuable in any kind of business. Yet for online firms they are not a luxury, but necessary for mere survival. This is true for a variety of reasons. The internet is not only growing, but changing rapidly-which, in turn, changes the rules of the game for any business relying on it. The barriers to entry are still low compared with those for most offline businesses, which means that just keeping track of your existing rivals is not enough. These may not represent the greatest competitive threat tomorrow or the next day. That could come from a number of directions-a firm in a different type of online business; one that does not yet exist; or even from one of your own customers. On top of all this, the behavior of many consumers is constantly changing as well, as individuals discover new ways to shop and interact with each other via the web.
  All these factors make the internet a dangerous place to do business, as well as one full of promise. eBay's history demonstrates both of those things. It is probably safe to say that nothing like eBay could have existed without the internet-or could have grown so fast. Even though there have been signs of the firm's rapid pace slowing a bit in America, its most "mature" market, there remain vast opportunities overseas, particularly, some argue, in China. Meg Whitman, eBay's chief executive, believes the company is still only at the beginning of what it could achieve.
31. What is the purpose of the first paragraph?
  A. To introduce the founder of eBay and his girlfriend.
  B. To demonstrate how clever the founder of eBay is.
  C. To show how eBay started and has grown.
  D. To introduce eBay to people.
32. Which of the following best summarizes Pierre Omidyar's intention with regard to eBay?
  A. To set up a global internet business.
  B. To allow people to freely buy and sell on the internet at acceptable prices.
  C. To set up a mechanism on the internet to allow people to trade at true market prices.
  D. To se up a business mechanism for his girlfriend.
33. Which of these is NOT necessary for a company selling on the internet to do?
  A. Have the most competitive price for each of their online products.
  B. Be able to change to suit the prevailing market conditions.
  C. Be prepared to consider all options and alternatives.
  D. Have a good idea of what their customers do not want.
34. What does "barriers to entry are still low compared with those for most offline businesses" in paragraph 3 mean?
  A. It is easier to set up an internet business than a conventional one.
  B. Internet trade is growing faster than traditional business sector.
  C. It is cheaper to set up an internet business than a traditional one.
  D. Companies generally prefer to do business online rather than offline.
35. Why does the article conclude that the internet "is a dangerous place to do business"?
  A. Because companies that sell online may be unreliable.
  B. Because there are no controls on doing business on the internet.
  C. Because doing business online is unpredictable.
D. Because even companies like eBay have problems doing business online.

The holiday's upon us. After months of study, you have some time to yourself. So, why not read a book? Well, some people will say, 'Why trouble with books? We have the Internet and 41 media that offer a lot more 42 (colour) programs. Books are history!"
But don't be fooled. There's still a lot to be said for reading and reading as widely as possible.
One clear reason is that a well-chosen book is a wonderful collection 43 words and expressions, so long as you have a good dictionary, of course. Believe me, it's far easier to get new English words and expressions from a book or article 44 it is from the TV or the Internet.
But an even more important point is 45 books give you something that modern media simply can not: The webpage is always full of pictures and the text is often designed to make it as easy to read as possible.
Though "easy" may be welcome, 46 (luck) it's of little use for any long-time development of reading skills and the general language level. For that, there's still no substitute(替代品) for a book.
But perhaps the best single reason is that simply 47 (choose) what you read and doing it by yourself 48 (mean) that it's something you do by and for yourself. You can choose what you want to read. It's hard work, 49 while you are reading, you'll find that what once 50 (seem) like a duty is now a pleasure.

Peter,
I'm very glad to receive your e-mail asking something about the host family we have arranged for you to stay.
Located in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, a large fully equipped apartment meets all your needs. Apart from the convenient public transportation, the family's own car can also take you to some nearby places of interest. Because all the members of the family can speak fluent English and have outgoing personalities, I'm sure you will have no difficulty communicating with them. Above all, they hosted two American students last year, through which they've gained lots of experience. In addition, the hostess's expert cooking can guarantee you a wonderful chance of tasting delicious Chinese food.
Now they are fully prepared to host you and make friends with you. And I hope you will have a pleasant time in China. See you soon.
Yours,
Li Gang
