In 1926, a Frenchman named Niepce needed pictures for his business. But he was not a good artist. So he invented a very simple camera. He put it in a window of his house and took a picture of his garden. That was the first photo. The next important date in the history of photography was in 1837. That year, Daguerre, another Frenchman, took a picture of his reading room. He used a new kind of camera in a different way. In his picture you could see everything clearly, even the smallest thing. This kind of photo was called a Daguerreotype(银版照相). Soon other people began to use Daguerre’s way. Travelers brought back wonderful photos from all around the world. People took pictures of famous buildings, cities and mountains. In about 1840, photography was developed. Then photographers could take picture of people and moving things. That was not simple. The photographers had to carry a lot of film and other machines. But this did not stop them, for example, some in the US worked so hard. Mathew Brady was a famous American photographer. He took many pictures of great people. The pictures were unusual because they were very lifelike(栩栩如生的). Photography also became one kind of art by the end of the 19th century. Some photos were not just copies of the real world. They showed feelings, like other kinds of art.

“Life is speeding up. Everyone is getting unwell.”
This may sound like something someone would say today. But in fact,
an unknown person who lived in Rome in AD（公元） 53 wrote it.
We all love new inventions. They are exciting, amazing and can even change our lives. But have all these developments really improved the quality of our lives?
Picture this. You’re rushing to finish your homework on the computer. Your mobile phone rings, a QQ message from your friend appears on the screen, the noise from the television is getting louder and louder. Suddenly the computer goes blank and you lose all your work. Now you have to stay up all night to get it done. How happy do you feel?
Inventions have speeded up our lives so much that they often leave up feeling stressed and tired. Why do you think people who live far away from noisy cities, who have no telephones, no cars, not even any electricity（电） often seem to be happier? Perhaps because they live simpler lives.
One family in the UK went “back in time” to see what life was like without all the inventions we have today. The grandparents, with their daughter, and grandsons Benjamin, 10 and Thomas, 7, spent nine weeks in a 1940s house. They had no washing machine, microwave（微波炉）, computer or mobile phones.
The grandmother, Lyn, said, “The more things you have, the more difficult life becomes.” The boys said they fought less. Probably, they said, because there was less to fight over, such as their computer. Benjamin also noticed that his grandmother had changed from being a
“trendy（赶时髦的）, beer-drinking granny”, to one who cooked things.
56. The writer uses the quote（引号） at the beginning of the story to ________.
A. tell us a truth about our lives
B. tell us what life was like long time ago C. point out what causes such a thing to happen
D. point out some problems we will meet in the life
57. In the passage the writer describes a picture to show that new
A. have speeded up our lives B. have improved the quality of
C. may make people feel very happy D. may bring people some trouble
58. The family chose to spend some time in a 1940s house because _______.
A. they loved to live simple lives
B. they wanted to know how people lived without modern inventions
C. they were troubled by modern inventions
D. living in a different time would be a lot of fun for them
59. According to the passage, which id NOT right?
A. People who live far away from noisy cities often seem to be happier.
B. An unknown Roman was sure that the quality of life would get better.
C. The family had some changes when they lived in a 1940s house.
D. With the improvement of our lives, we often feel stressed and tired.
60. The passage is mainly about ________.
A. problems with technology B. improvements of our lives with technology
C. changes happening to technology
D. the importance of technology

A forest fire that burned 55 square kilometres was finally brought under control on Wednesday morning. The fire started on Sunday in Black Bear State Park and quickly spread to nearby areas.
On Monday, police evacuated（疏散） the small town of Lawson and ordered the people to leave their homes. The fire destroyed 20 homes in the area and caused heavy damage to 40 others.
Nobody was hurt. Officials said the damage to homes and cars was between $l million and $2 million. The government declared the town a disaster (灾难) area. The fire spread quickly in the hot, dry weather. Fire fighting was difficult because of strong winds. Firemen from 55 fire departments in the state joined the National Fire Service to put out the fire. Some kept fighting for 24 hours. Fire engines and helicopters
dropped water onto the fire. In order to control the fire, firemen cleared a way around the fire.
Police closed King Road to traffic on Tuesday because of heavy smoke. Thousands of tourists had to drive an hour north to Queen Road to pass the fire area.

83. Why was fire fighting difficult?
84. How did the firemen drop water onto the fire?

七、One possible version：
Now, more and more people keep animals as pets at home. They regard their pets as members of their families. Pets are loved more and more because they can give people a lot of pleasure
and help a person feel less lonely.
We must keep our pet clean and healthy. If the pet is ill, we should take her to see the vet. We must try to prevent the spread of diseases that animals carry. If we do like this, the pet will give us pleasure rather than trouble.
