One day, a poor boy who was trying to pay his way through school by sending newspapers door to door, was so hungry that he decided to beg for a meal at the next house.
However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe (欠…债) you?”
“You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Then I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” With these words, Howard Kelly left that house.
Year later the woman became badly ill and as finally sent to the hospital in a big city. Dr. 2
Howard Kelly, now famous, was called in. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.

At last the woman was saved. Dr. Kelly asked the business office to pass the final bill to him. He looked at it and then wrote something on the side. The bill was sent to her room. She was afraid to open it because she was sure that it would take the rest of her life to pay for it off. Finally she looked, and the note on the side of the bill caught her attention.

People usually use modern machines to produce things in large numbers. This method lowers the cost of their products（产品） and the price of these products in the markets is lower, too. Thus they give us better values. At the same time, new technology and science are always at work, improving the quality of products. In this way, better quality products at good values are one after the other being brought to the people of all income groups.
As an example of how this works, when facial tissues, pieces of thin soft paper that you use to blow your nose, were first put on the market in 1924, they were made in small numbers and sold at 60 cents per box of 200. People liked these facial tissues immediately and began asking for them when they went into different stores.
Because there was such a market for the product, producers began making tissues in larger and larger numbers. Because the producers were making tissues in greater numbers, the costs were lowered, so that the cost of tissues went down. At the same time, the quality of facial tissues was improving, because more producers went into the business of making tissues, and each producer tried to make his product better than his competitors（竞争者）. Today, instead of costing 60 cents, a box of 200 facial tissues costs around one third of that price, and they are both softer and stronger.
When people are free to compete, when they are free to make more things and make them better, we all feel much better.
37．How do the makers cut the cost of their products?
A．They cut the price of their products in the supermarkets.
B．They have many different machines in their factories.
C．They improve the quality of their products.
D．They produce things in large numbers.
38．How much does a box of 200 tissues cost today?
A．80 cents. B．60 cents. C．40 cents. D．20 cents.
39．Why does the writer of the passage set facial tissue as an example?
A．To show how the price of tissues becomes lower.
B．To show how the quality of tissues becomes higher.
C．To tell the readers how the tissues are made.
D．To tell the readers how the tissues are sold.
40．Which is true according to the passage？
A．The more products they make, the better quality the products will be.
B．The lower the price of the products is, the more value we can get.
C．The more products they sell, the less money they make.
D．The freer you are, the better you feel.
Jeanne Calment took up skating at age 85, made her first movie appearance at age 114, and held a concert in the neighborhood on her 121st birthday.
When it comes to long life, Jeanne Calment is the world’s recordholder. She lived to the ripe old age of 122. So is 122 the upper limit（限制） to the human life span（寿命）? If scientists come up with some sort of pill or diet that would slow aging, could we possibly make it to 150—or beyond?
Researchers don’t entirely agree on the answers. “Calment lived to 122, so it wouldn’t surprise me if someone alive today reaches 130 or 135,” says Jerry Shay at the University of Texas.
Steve Austad at the University of Texas agrees. “People can live longer than we think,” he says. “Experts used to say that humans couldn’t live past 110. When Calment blew past that age, they raised the number to 120. So why can’t we go higher?”
The trouble with guessing how old people can live to be is that it’ s all just guessing. “Anyone can make up a number,” says Rich Miller at the University of Michigan. “Usually the scientist who picks the highest number gets his name in Time magazine.”
Won’t new anti-aging techniques keep us alive for centuries？ Any cure, says Miller, for aging would probably keep most of us living until about 120. Researchers are working on treatments that make the life span of mice longer by 50 percent at most. So, if the average （平均） human life span is about 80 years, says Miller, “adding another 50 percent would get you to 120.” So what can we learn from this little disagreement among the researchers？ That life span is flexible（有弹性的） , but there is a limit, says George Martin of the University of Washington. “We can get flies to live 50 percent longer,” he says. “But a fly’s never going to live 150 years.” Of course, if you became a new species（物种）, one that ages at a slower speed, that would be a different story, he adds.
Does Martin really believe that humans could evolve（进化） their way to longer life? “It’s pretty cool to think about.” He says with a smile.
B41．What does the story of Jeanne Calment prove to us？ ________
A．People can live to 122. B．Old people are creative.
C．Women are sporty at 85. D．Women live longer than men.
D42．According to Steve Austad at the University of Texas, ________.
A．the average human life span could be 110
B．scientists cannot find ways to slow aging
C．few people can expect to live to over 150
D．experts aren’t sure how long one can live
C43．Who thinks that a scientist will become famous if he makes the wildest guess at longevity?
A．Jerry Shay. B．Steve Austad. C．Rich Miller. D．George Martin.
C44．What can we infer from the last three paragraphs？ ________
A．Most of us could be good at sports even at 120.
B．The average human life span cannot be doubled.
C．Scientists believe mice are aging at a slower speed than before.
D．New techniques could be used to change flies into a new species.
Who are the pop stars singing all day long on your MP3 player? They may be Jay Chou, Angela Chang or S. H. E. But when it comes to a foreign singer, Avril Lavigne is the one who is worth listening to.
The Canadian star’s hit single Girlfriend was named the top download of 2007 by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry（国际唱片业协会）. She came to China last year for her “The Best Damn Tour” concerts.
The pop/rock princess（公主） played at Guangzhou first on September 27, followed by other cities including Chengdu（September 30）, Shanghai（October 4） and Beijing（October 6）. Lavigne performed her most popular hits in the concerts, including Complicated, Girlfriend, and My Happy Ending.
Lavigne has been on the music scene for six years. She has proven that she is not simply another pretty face. Lavigne prefers to wear loose（宽松的） trousers, old T-shirts and a frown（皱眉）. That’s not like the tight clothes and sweet smiles of many pop stars.
Lavigne knew that she could never be like Britney Spears. In her high school days, “I was only around guys,” she said. “I hung out with guys, playing hockey（曲棍球） and sometimes getting in fights. My band members were all guys.”
It was not until she got older that she started acting more girly. “From then to now, I look really different—but that’s called growing up,” she said.
Lavigne was only 15 when she was discovered. At that time she had no idea how to make an album. “A career（职业） just came early for me. I was trying to figure out this life,” she said. “My friends still don’t know if they want to be a teacher or a doctor. When I talk to them, they’ll tell me they have exams the next day.”
So what does Lavigne think about life? “Life is like a roller coaster（过山车）. Live it, be happy,” she said.
45．Where is Avril Lavigne from?
46．Has she ever been to China?
47．Was she like a boy or a girl when she was in high school？
48．How old was she when she began to be famous?
49．What’ s the difference between her life and her friends’?
