Passage 1
Scientists have always wanted to know more about the other worlds in space. Years ago they knew a lot about the moon. They knew how far away it is from the earth. But they wanted to know more about it. They thought and thought. At last they found the only way to know more was to send men to the moon.
The moon is about 384 000 kilometres away from the earth. A plane can not fly to the moon because the air reaches only 240 kilometres high above the earth. Then there is no air. But something can fly even when there is no air. That is a rocket (火箭).
Rockets can fly out into space. Rockets with men in them have already reached the moon. Some rockets without men in them have flown to other parts, much farther away from the earth than the moon in the universe. One day, rockets may be able to go to any place.

Passage 2
In the past, people who graduated from college felt proud of their academic achievements and confident that their degree would help them to find a good job.
However, in the past four years the job market has changed dramatically. This year’s college graduates are facing one of the worst job markets. For example, Ryan Stewart, a graduate of San Jose State University, got a degree in religious studies, but he has not gotten any job offers. He points out that many people already working are getting laid off and don’t have jobs, so it’s even harder for new college graduates to find jobs.
Four years ago, the future looked bright for his class of 2006. There were many high-tech job opportunities, graduates received many job offers, and they were able to get jobs with high salaries and benefits such as health insurance and paid vacations. However, “Times have changed. It’s a new market,” according to an officer of the university.
The officer says students who do find jobs started preparing two years ago. They worked during summer vacations, they have had several short-time jobs, and they majored in fields that are still paying well, such as accounting or nursing.
In conclusion, these days a college degree does not automatically lead to a good job with a high salary. Some students can only hope that the value of their degree will increase in the future.
46. What did a college degree mean to people in the past?
A. It was a proof of their professional skills.
B. It would guarantee their quick promotion.
C. It built up their confidence in the job market.
D. It would help them to start an academic career.
47. Ryan Steward has not got any job offer because ________.
A. there are too many graduates of his major
B. he wants to find a job with very high salary
C. he has not received a degree in the university
D. the job market has changed greatly since 2002
48. According to the passage, ________ had the best job prospects in 2002.
A. computer science B. accounting C. teaching D. nursing
49. How did students make preparation for finding jobs?
A. They prepared all the time B. They worked during summer vacations
C. They did short-time jobs. D. Both B and C
50. It can be concluded from the passage that ________.
A. the value of a college degree has decreased now
B. new college graduates today can’t find jobs
C. a college degree can still lead to a good job
D. graduates must prepare early to find jobs
Passage 3
In Japan’s capital city of Tokyo, earthquake danger limits the height of buildings. The city has spread out so far and the traffic has become so heavy that it is very difficult to get from one place to another. The price of land, too, has become very high. All this explains why a group of Japanese land developers came to the conclusion that there was nowhere to go but down. So far they have dug out space underground for fifteen major shopping centers, and the underground construction(建筑)has only begun.
What are some of the advantages of shopping and eating underground? Clean, filtered(过滤的)air is one of them. The city of Tokyo has one of the most serious smog(烟雾)problems in the world. Another advantage is that there won’t be traffic accidents as that on the city’s busy streets. Still another is the convenience(方便)of moving from place to place. You’re usually right next to, or even in, a subway station. And you can even spend the night underground if you like. The Kyobashi Station, for example, in downtown Tokyo, has a hotel with a bar, restaurant and barbershop.

Passage 4
When you send a letter or a postcard, you have to put stamps on the envelope or on the card. When did people first begin to use stamps? Who was the first to think of this idea?
In the early nineteenth century, people did not use stamps. They had to pay postage(邮费)when they received letters. Sometimes they didn’t want to receive a letter at all, but they had to pay money for it. They were unhappy about this. The postage was high at that time, because the post offices had to send many people to get the postage.
Rowland Hill was a schoolteacher in England. He was the first to think of using stamps in 1850s. He thought it would be much easier for people to use stamps. People could go to the post office to buy stamps and put them on envelopes before they sent the letters. The post office could just put seals(邮戳)on the stamps so that people could not use the stamps again. In this way, the post office did not need to send postmen to get postage. It only needed fewer postmen to send letters.
56. People began to use stamps ________.
A. at the beginning of the nineteenth century
B. in the middle of the nineteenth century
C. more than two hundred years ago
D. when people first sent letters and postcards.

59. After stamps were used ________.
A. postmen needn’t get postage B. people needn’t pay postage
C. the post office could get more postage D. people should pay more postage
60. What is the main idea of the passage?

Dear Miss Liu,
I am writing to tell you that I found your handbag and hope to return it to you as soon as possible. I found your handbag on a bench of the park when I was walking there on Sunday afternoon last week. The handbag contains 2 000 RMB, your ID, two credit cards, and some other things. I know you are very much worried about it now. I suggest you meet me at 4:00 p.m. at the same place in the same park this Sunday to get your handbag back. I will be in red. If it is convenient for you, give a phone call to let me know if my ideas are all good enough. My phone number is 2457-3349.
