For hundreds of years, Japan has been hit, from time to time, by enormous (巨大的) tsunamis（海啸）. These awful sudden risings of the sea are caused by earthquakes or underwater volcanic actions. The story of the boy Yuuki is the story of such a disaster.
Yuuki lived with his family in a seaside village, below a small mountain. One day, as he played on top of the mountain, Yuuki felt a small earthquake but it was not strong enough to frighten anybody and passed quickly. Soon after, however, Yuuki noticed the sea darken and begin running away from the shore very fast, leaving
behind wide stretches of beach that had never been seen before.
With a grasp, Yuuki remembered reading that just before a terrible tsunami, the sea suddenly and quickly rolls backward. He ran to the beach, warning the villagers who had gathered to admire the new beach land. ―Get back!‖ shouted the boy, ―There is a terrible danger!‖
But no one listened. They laughed at him and continued playing in the new sand and watched the sea roll backward even more.
Desperate, Yuuki could think of only one thing to do. He lit a tree branch, raced to the rice fields and began burning the harvested rice. Then he called out, ―Fire! Fire! Everyone run to the mountain! Now!‖
When everyone reached the mountain-top, a villager cried out, ―Yuuki is mad! I saw him set the fire.‖ Yuuki hung his head in shame, but said nothing as the villagers cursed him. Just then, someone shouted, ―Look!‖ In the distance what seemed to be a huge dark line was speeding towards the shore. As it got nearer the people realized the long thin line of darkness was the returning sea, towering like a mountain.
The villagers watched in terror as the water struck the shore, smashing over their homes then tearing out the land as it receded.
On the mountain everyone stared speechlessly at the destruction below.
―I'm sorry I burned the fields,‖ said Yuuki, his voice trembling.
―Yuuki,‖ village-chief answered. ―You saved us all.‖
The villagers cheered and raised Yuuki into the air. ―We were going to
celebrate our rice harvest tonight,‖ said one, ―but now we’ll celebrate that we’re all still alive!‖

Fishing is a popular activity and every fisherman knows the rule: Keep the big ones, throw the smaller ones back. The idea behind Lt is simple - the larger fish are probably older. If you keep the smaller ones, they won’t be able to reproduce, and the fish population is in danger.
But fishing out the largest fish from a population has an unwanted effect: Over time, fewer adult fish get
really big. If only the smaller fish reproduce（繁殖）, then future generations become smaller. This is an example of evolution（进化） in action.
One scientist, Dr David Conover has spent the last decade studying the effects of the ―keep the big ones‖ rule and if they can be reversed（颠倒）.
To set up his experiment, Conover and his team caught hundreds of silverside fish and divided them into six groups. For two groups, Conover followed the ―keep the large ones‖ rule and took out the biggest fish. For two other groups, he removed only the small fish.
For the last two groups, he removed fish at random (随意的).
After five years, he measured the fish in each group. In the two groups where the largest fish were regularly removed, the average fish size was smaller than the average size in the other groups. Here was evolution in action: If only small fish survive to reproduce, then future generations of fish will also tend to be small.
For the second five years of his experiment, Conover changed the rules and took fish randomly from each group. At the end of the experiment, he found that the fish that were in the ―keep the large ones‖ group for the first five years had started to get larger again, although he calculated it would take at least 12 years for the fish in that group to return to their original size.
In other words, it takes less time to shrink(变小) than it does to recover.
60. The underlined word ―it‖ (Line 2) refers to ― ‖
A. the activity B. the fish C. the rule D. the fisherman
61. Why do many people follow the ―keep the big ones, throw the small ones back‖ rule?
A. It helps to protect fish numbers.
B. It helps to protect fish size.
C. It is the custom in most countries.
D. They will be punished if they don’t.
62. What did Conover find after the first five years of his experiment?
A. The ―keep the big ones‖ rule made no difference to fish size.
B. The ―keep the big ones‖ rule made fish smaller on average.
C. The ―keep the big ones‖ rule made the fish bigger on average.
D. The ―keep the big ones‖ rule affected all fish populations in the same way.
63. What is the author’s intention in writing this article?
A. To encourage people to fish more carefully.
B. To urge governments to change the rules of fishing.
C. To describe the results of a scientific experiment.
D. To introduce the rules of fishing to readers.
With only fish and birds for company, Eric Erden has been rowing across the Pacific Ocean to Australia in his 23-foot-long boat since he left California on July 10, 2009.
But crossing the Pacific is only part of his incredible journey. Eric has decided to go all the way around the world using only his own energy. He will row, bike, and walk without help from any motors at all. Oh, and his plan includes climbing the tallest peak on six of the continents along the way, to honour the memory of a fellow climber.
He says he is doing this to show kids that they can achieve any goal, but he hopes to have some great
adventures along the way.
As a solo traveller, Eric has already faced disappointments and challenges. Because he has to row about ten hours a day, he brought along an MP3 player to listen to music and pass the time. Unfortunately, the nearly daily tropical rain for several months has forced him to keep his player packed away where it's safe and dry.
Storms and huge wave wind regularly force him in the wrong direction and even threaten to overturn his boat. ―Sometimes I really feel scared,‖ says a somewhat embarrassed Eric. ―But that’s all part of the journey. I knew this wouldn’t be easy when I started. That's why I gave myself two years to finish.‖
Protein bars（蛋白棒） give him energy, and he boils water to heat freeze-dried meals on a one-burner stove.
A solar-powered machine removes salt from ocean water so he can drink it, but only when the sun shines. When that fails he sometimes tries to collect rainwater in buckets.
He’s not bothered by any of the hardships. Eric sees the world as a laboratory where there is much to learn. And when his trip around the world takes him across land, he enjoys meeting people - especially children. He has already visited several schools and shared his story.
64. Why is Eric making this trip?
A. To encourage children to reach for their goal.
B. To learn more about the world around us.
C. To have many great adventures in strange lands.
D. To honour the memory of a fellow climber.
65. What does Eric plan to do on each of the six continents he will visit?
A. Visit schools to share his story.
B. Study the culture of the local people.
C. Climb the tallest mountain.
D. Cycle from one end to the other.
66. When does Eric expect to finish his journey?
A. July 2009. B. June 2010. C. January 2011. D. July 2011.
67. Which of the following words best describes Eric’s character?
A. Determined. B. Intelligent. C. Fearless. D. Lonely.
―I had a Welsh speaking test. I'd had to memorize a paragraph in front of the whole class. I just couldn’t do it,‖ says 13-year-old Mary. ―I pretended to be ill.‖ But Mary did not enjoy her day off. ―I watched TV all day — it was boring. I wished I had gone to school.‖
Mary’s story is not unusual in Britain. According to the latest government figures, pupil absences are rising, 逃学)．
Philippa James, a PhD researcher at Cardiff University’s school of social sciences, thinks she knows why: ―The more schools improve methods of detection（检查）, the more children work out better methods of
deception.‖ Teenagers told her it was now harder to skip a single lesson, so they’d miss whole days to avoid being caught.
For several years, James has researched student truancy of 60 teenagers, aged 13 and 14, including Mary, to see how the teenagers truant, for how long, and why.
Through online conversations and face-to-face interviews, she discovered that most truancy was ―a response to factors within the school‖. Truants are not necessarily less advanced or less intelligent. They complained of teachers who failed to engage them, and of ―boring‖ lessons. ―Many truants really enjoy school and believe in education, but drop out when aspects of it were ineffective.‖ James says.
The views of students like Adam, who believes that skipping lessons has little impact on his schooling, were 6
common. ―I only take-off for a lesson, or a couple of days. It doesn’t affect my education,‖ he told James.
James’ study concludes that schools need to address the question of why pupils want to leave in the first place. ―Pupils need help from the start.‖ she says. ―It’s a two-way process – schools must be responsive. We need to look at the reasons for truancy rather than the number, so that instead of walking away from school, students have the skills and chances to talk through problems and make a change.‖
68. What is one of the reasons for school truancy according to James’ study?
A. Truants are fallen behind in their studies.
B. Truants have no interest in school subjects.
C. Truants have more interesting things to do.
D. Truants are not satisfied with the teachers.
69. The underlined phrase ―taking a hard line‖ (paragraph 2) is closest in meaning to― ‖.
A. experiencing a problem with B. having a strict attitude towards
C. finding it difficult to solve D. having little success with
70. By citing Adam's remark, James wants to show that .
A. school education is not efficient and needs improvement
B. it’s a popular belief that occasional truancy won't cause much harm
C. school truancy is becoming more serious and needs more concern
D. even good students may sometimes need a break from school
71. What is Philippa James’ suggestion to schools?
A. Schools should solve the problem of teachers.
B. Schools should be more active in helping beginner truants.
C. Schools should have a better control of hidden truants.
D. Schools should find out who truant and how they it.
For travelers with a sense of adventure and who so want to experience some of the history and mystery of the ancient world, here is a list of cool destinations that you may want to consider for your next holiday.
Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Built in the 12th century, Angkor Wat (meaning ―capital monastery‖) was a temple in the ancient Khmer capital city of Angkor. It is Cambodia’s best-known tourist attraction and appears on the country’s flag. The temple is known for its beautiful architecture and reliefs. You'll need at least three days to fully discover the delights of the magnificent site.
Machu Picchu, Peru
Machu Picchu was built high in the Andes Mountains of South America by the Inca in the 15th century. Although well preserved its exact purpose is unknown. It is famous throughout the world not only for its
incredible design but also for the natural beauty that surrounds it. Give yourself a week to explore this magnificent site and make you’re fit as there will be a lot of climbing.
The entire Stonehenge site was constructed over thousands of years. But why and how it was built remains a mystery. As the weather can be pretty bleak in winter and the crowds huge in summer, we suggest autumn is the best time to visit these monster rocks.
When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D., Pompeii was buried under many layers of ash, preserving the city exactly as it was when the volcano erupted. Because so many objects were preserved, archaeologists and visitors are able to better understand daily life in the ancient Roman Empire.
