A

Before the 1980s, models were just beautiful people in magazine photographs.

People knew very little about them. They didn't know how old they were, where

they lived or what their favourite sports were. Most people didn't even know their

names.

Then came the 1980s, the era(时代) of the supermodel. This was when some

models became so famous that they became as well known as Hollywood film

stars. Most people today have heard of Naomi Campbell,

Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer and the other supermodels.

Stories about them appear in magazines. Journalists interview them. Televisio

n documentaries have been made about their lives. There are also hundreds of

supermodel websites created by fans. On these websites, fans include information

about the models' weight, shoe size and hair colour.

One of the reasons these models became so famous was the huge amounts of money they were paid. Canadian supermodel Linda Evangelista once said, “I won't get out of bed for less than $10,000 (£6500) a day.” Claudia Schiffer had a four-year contract (合同) with the cosmetics (化妆品) company Revlon. The company paid her £4,000,000 for just thirty days' work per year—that's more than £130,000 per day!

Supermodels don't make their money just from posing for the camera or walking down the catwalk. They have discovered many other areas where they can market themselves: films, television shows, exercise videos, calendars, and even the lingerie(女内衣) business. Elle Macpherson has her own underwear company which makes millions of pounds a year.

Supermodels have many other things in common, too. They travel all over the world to work. They own houses and flats in many different places.

51. Before the 1980s, _________.

A. supermodels didn't exist

B. models were as well known as Hollywood stars

C. some models were called supermodels

D. people knew the names of many models

52. How do people get to know about the lives of supermodels?

A. By watching their shows. B. By calling their mobiles.

C. By surfing their websites. D. By sending presents to them.

53. For one day's work, Linda Evangelista expects to be paid _________.

A. £6,500 or more B. less than £6,500

C. £4 million D. more than £130,000

54. Which of the following is not true?

A. Supermodels are paid too much money.

B. Nowadays supermodels are just as famous as Hollywood stars.

C. Supermodes don't just make money from modelling.

D. All the supermodels have their own underwear companies.

55. What makes supermodels so famous?

A. Stories, interviews, TV documentaries, etc.

B. Their physical appearance.

C. The modelling jobs they do.

D. The businesses they run.

B

The yo-yo is one of the oldest and most popular

of all toys. The Greeks were playing with

yo-yos around 500 BC. It was a popular

children's toy in the Philippines during the

16th century, and it was the toy to own in

Britain in the early 19th century. Even the

Prince of Wales had one!

The first American yo-yo company was

started in 1928. The American yo-yos had a

special feature. They could stop at the end

of the string and spin(旋转) in one place before moving up again. This was called “sleeping”. It allowed the user to do tricks while the yo-yo was spinning. Soon yo-yo fans of all ages were doing tricks with names like “walk the dog”, “rock the baby” and “around the world”.

During the 1970s, yo-yo companies began making their yo-yos more interesting and exciting. Yo-yos lit up in the dark, they whistled, and they had funny shapes. In 1985, the yo-yo even went into space. It was taken on the space shuttle Discovery to see how it would perform in zero gravity(重力). It would still spin, but without gravity to pull it down, it would not “sleep”.

Over the years, competitions and exhibitions have led more and more people to take ‘yo-yoing' seriously. In 1990, the first international yo-yo convention (大会) was held. In 1993, the American Yo-Yo Association was started. For serious yo-yo fans, there's even a National Yo-Yo Museum in Chico, California.

The best thing about yo-yos, though, is that you don't have to be a genius to figure them out. You just need to keep practising, and pretty soon you'll be spinning with the best of them.

56. Why is the yo-yo one of the oldest and most popular of all toys?

A. It was played around 500 BC.

B. Philippine children played with it during the 16th century.

C. The British have had it for over 200 years.

D. All of the above.

57. A special feature of the American yo-yos allows you to _________.

A. figure out how to use your yo-yo B. whistle with your yo-yo

C. go around the world with your yo-yo D. do tricks with your yo-yo

58. On the space shuttle Discovery, the yo-yo _________.

A. did not spin B. would spin but didn't “sleep”

C. could do lots of tricks D. could not be controlled at all

59. What has made more people interested in yo-yos?

A. The history of yo-yos.

B. The special features of yo-yos.

C. More yo-yo competitions and exhibitions.

D. The toys for the Royal family.

60. Which of the following is true?

A. American yo-yos could stop and spin at the end of the string.

B. The American Yo-Yo Association began in 1928.

C. The National Yo-Yo Museum is in the UK.

D. Without practice people can figure out how to use a yo-yo.

C

Note: —Afternoon shows start before 5:00 pm. Tickets are $5.00 each. Tickets for all other shows are $8.50 each.

—Movie snacks (like popcorn and candy) at the Plaza Theatre and Movie City are expensive. Snacks are cheap at the Century 2000 and UA Blossom Hill.

Karen and Steve want to see a movie. There are five movies now showing. Children's Toys and The Three Sisters are comedies. Revenge in Paris is an action movie. Everybody's in Love is a romance. Daytime Nightmare is a horror film.

Karen likes comedies and action movies. She sometimes sees romances. She doesn't like horror films. Steve loves action movies and horror movies. He sees comedies once in a while. He doesn't like romances.

Steve finishes work at 5:30. Karen will meet him at his office. First, they will have dinner. Then, they'll go to a movie. All of the theatres are near Steve's office, except the UA Blossom Hill. It's a 30-minute drive away.

61. The 7:30 pm movie _________ at _________ would be best for Steve and Karen.

62. The Plaza Theatre opens _________ than the other ones.

63. The UA Blossom Hill is _________ from Steve's office, but the snacks there are _________. D

People often say that living with teenagers is worse than living with any other age group. Is this true? We talked to one parent with

teenage children to find out.

Marilyn Scott

Yes, sometimes it's really difficult

living with teenagers. It isn't only their

age, it's also the type of people they are.

My two sons are completely different. Tom's

easier to live with than Harry. Harry's a

typical moody (情绪坏的) fifteen-year-old.

He's a lot noisier and more aggressive(性

格暴燥的) than Tom, and he isn't as

considerate. So he's much harder to live with.

But Harry's got his good side too. He's very bright and his exam results are always better than Tom's.

Tom's two years older than Harry, so he's more mature (成熟的) and less stubborn (倔强的) than his brother. He's also a bit more patient and can be very helpful when he wants to be. But he's got bigger problems at school. He's as intelligent (聪明的) as Harry, but he's much lazier and his exam results are always worse than his brother's. Harry wants to be a pilot when he leaves school, but Tom doesn't know what he wants to do.

In some ways I'm a bit more worried about Harry because he isn't as happy as Tom. But I also worry about Tom because he hasn't got any plans for his future. Yes, life is hard living with teenagers, but I'll miss them when they leave home.

64. According to Marilyn, what makes it difficult to live with teenage children?

65. Translate the underlined sentence into Chinese.

66. Tom's as _________ as Harry, but Harry gets _________ exam results than Tom.

67. What is Marilyn's worry about Harry?

E

68. Translate the underlined sentence into Chinese.

Dear Sir / Madam,

I am writing regarding your advertisement about the ten-day tour of Thailand. I am very interested in the tour and would be grateful if you could answer a few questions. Your advertisement states that the price includes a return flight from Gatwick. What time does the flight leave?

The advertisement also mentions that the price includes 10 nights accommodation in a five-star hotel. Where exactly in Thailand is the hotel? Finally, the advertisement mentions that there will be sightseeing tours of Thailand. Will there also be time to go shopping?

Thank you for your help.

Yours

faithfully,

Danny Burns

B) Possible versions:

a) Have you ever considered becoming a teacher? There are many advantages and disadvantages to doing this kind of job.

One of the main advantages to being a teacher is that it is rewarding because you work with children. Besides, it is exciting as you will teach lots of different things.

Nevertheless, a teacher's job can be difficult sometimes. First of all, it can be stressful because you have to do things in a very short time. Moreover, it is tiring because you have a lot of homework to correct.

All things considered, I think becoming a teacher is a good idea.

b) Have you ever considered becoming a doctor? There are many advantages and disadvantages to doing this kind of job.

One of the main advantages of being a doctor is that it is rewarding as you treat people. Besides, it is well paid because the job takes a lot of skill.

Nevertheless, a doctor's job can be very difficult sometimes. First of all, it can be depressing because you have to be around sick people all day. Moreover, it is a stressful job as you have to work long hours.

All things considered, I think becoming a doctor is a good idea as long as you know the disadvantages.
