For hundreds of years, the people of a Scottish town believed that a dinosaur-like monster lived in a nearby lake called Loch Ness. Many said they saw the creature, but no one could prove it was real.
In 1934, a London doctor, Robert Kenneth Wilson, gave a newspaper a photo of the monster. He took the picture, he said, when he suddenly saw the animal in the lake one morning. The news travelled around the world. People came from everywhere to see this creature, now called the “Loch Ness Monster”. Then, in 1993, a man named Christian Spurling surprised everyone. He said the photo of the Loch Ness Monster was a fake. He and some friends created the famous picture themselves, and then Wilson gave it to the newspaper as a practical joke.
Today, tricks and jokes like this are common, and many are spread using e-mail or micro-blog. Some can be funny, but others can cause trouble. In August, 2000, an e-mail was sent from a large British supermarket chain—Safeway—to thousands of its customers. It said, “Store prices are going to increase 25 percent. If you don’t like this, go to another store.” It was signed, “the Safeway Team”. The e-mail upset many of Safeway’s customers and caused big problems for the supermarket. Later, Safeway discovered what happened. Someone broke into the company’s web site and sent the fake e-mail.
Not all the tricks are as bad as this one. Some make us laugh, and others surprise us. In the end, they all show us that seeing is not always believing.

29. Which of the following is the best title of this passage?

C. Seeing is believing D. Loch Ness Monster
Before I came to England, I’d read about English customs (习俗). For example, I knew English people drove on the left side of the road. I knew that English people said “please” and “thank you” a lot and I knew that the money they used was called pounds and pence. It was quite a shock when I bought a newspaper and a bottle of drink at the airport, and the woman behind the counter said, “That’ll be 2 quid, love.” I made a quick calculation (计算) and decided to hand over two ￡1 coins. Imagine my relief when she said “Ta, love”. I didn’t know what that meant either, but at least she was smiling, so I must got the money right.
I soon learned that a “quid” is a pound. There are several explanations for this, but the one I like best is that “quid” comes from “Quidhampton Mill”, which used to produce the special paper that pound notes (纸币) were printed on.
My new English friends often talked about “fivers” and “tenners” but the meaning of these was
obvious: a fiver is simply a ￡5 note and a tenner is a ￡10 note. They would also speak about things like computers or cars costing a “grand” or a “couple of grand”. It took me a while, but I finally figured out that a “grand” was a thousand pounds.
Just when I thought I had got used to English money, I saw the following advertisement in a local newspaper: “Wanted: Sales Clerk, London Area, ￡25k”. I was completely confused. I knew from my computer course that “k” meant “kilobyte”. I didn’t know that it could also mean “thousand” in newspaper advertisements. A few days later a friend explained the mystery. The advertisement was not for a 25-kilobyte clerk, but for a clerk who would earn ￡25,000 a year.
30. Why did the writer feel shocked after he heard the woman’s words at the airport?
A. Because the woman called him “love”.
B. Because the woman’s smile made him nervous.
C. Because he didn’t understand what “quid” meant.
D. Because the newspaper and mints at the store were expensive.
31. What does “Quidhampton Mill” in the second paragraph refer to (所指)?
A. A pound note. B. A paper factory.
C. The name of a person. D. A special kind of paper.
32. What does the passage talk about?
A. English customs. B. English money.
C. The English language. D. Shopping in England.
When I was a boy, I belonged to the Boy Scouts (童子军), so I used to go camping every summer, and once something happened which I have never been able to explain.
We were camping in a place above a river. After arriving, we all rushed down to the river and had a swim. Standing by the river, we noticed that it was surrounded (环绕) by cliffs (悬崖). If someone wanted to reach the river at this point, he had to walk past our camp.
Several days later, the scoutmaster had to be away for a day. That afternoon, we had supper early. We were sitting round the fire, eating and talking, when a man walked past and went down towards the river. We all felt that this man looked very strange, but, because each of us was afraid of looking very stupid, no one said anything.
We ate rather slowly, taking as long as possible. After finishing, we collected our plates together so that we could take them to the river where we always washed them. But no one moved towards the river—we stood looking at each other ashamed. Then all shouting at once, we began talking about the man who had walked past us. We agreed how strange he looked and we wondered what he could be doing by the river. We knew that he could only return by passing through our camp.
An hour passed. Then one of the boys suggested we should creep (悄悄移动) down by the river so that we could see what the man was doing. Moving very slowly and keeping in the shadow, we crept down towards the bank. One boy climbed a tree so that he could see everything clearly. He called to us that there was no one there, so we ran down to the bank, looking everywhere carefully. We could not understand where the man had gone.
When it got dark, we went back to our camp feeling bewildered. We told the scoutmaster what had happened in the evening. Smiling, he doubted if we had seen the man, but finally suggested we go and look again. We did, but there was no one there.
Many years have passed, but I still remember it as if it were yesterday. What did we see? I do not know.

It is well known that everyone has his own dream as well as his own future. But do you know w future really is? I have to say that future is now. That is to say we must treasure (珍惜) every future, we should know how important time is and how to use it well.
There is an old English saying: “Gain t, gain life.” Then what’s time? Time is something that we can’t see or tit passing by. Time is always with us. When we are at table, time passes; when we play, time goes by unnoticeably. We always say “Time is money”, but more precious (珍贵的) than money, because when money is spent, we can earn it . So, some of us even say time is priceless (无价的).
We should always remember: future is now. For us students, we should try our best to work hard a great future of our own. We should make the best use of every hour and be the master of today. We should do everything before us as well as possible. And never put off what can be today till tomorrow.
As we all know, “Time and tide wait for no man.” If you wtoday, you will regret (遗憾) Remember: “No pains, no gains.” Today’s hard work is the cause of tomorrow’s harvest.
