After a busy day of work and play, the body needs to rest. Sleep is necessary for good health. During this time, the body recovers from the activities of the previous day. The rest that you get while sleeping enables your body to prepare itself for the next day.
There are four levels of sleep, each being a little deeper than the one before. As you sleep, your muscles relax little by little. Your heart beats more slowly, and your brain slows down. After you reach the fourth level, your body shifts back and forth from one level of sleep to the other.
Although your mind slows down, from time to time you will dream. Scientists who study sleep state that when dreaming occurs, your eyeballs begin to move more quickly (although your eyelids are closed). This stage of sleep is called REM, which stands for rapid eye movement.
If you have trouble falling asleep, some people recommend breathing very slowly and very deeply. Other people believe that drinking warm milk will help make you drowsy. There is also an old suggestion that counting sheep will put you to sleep!
1、A good title for this passage is_____.
D、Work and Rest
2、The word “drowsy” in the last paragraph means____.
D、a little sleepy
3、This passage suggests that not getting enough sleep might make you____.
A、dream more often

A、 your eyes move quickly
C、you are restless
D、both A and B
5、The average number of hours of sleep that an adult needs is _____.

Obviously television has both advantages and disadvantages.
In the first place, television is not only a convenient source of entertainment, but also a comparatively cheap one. With a TV set in the family people don’t have to pay for expensive seats at the theatre, the cinema, or the opera. All they have to do is to push a button or turn a knob, and they can see plays, films, operas and shows of every kind. Some people, however, think that this is where the danger lies. The television viewers need do nothing. He does not even have use his legs if he has a remote control. He makes no choice and exercises, no judgment. He is completely passive and has everything presented to him without any effort on his part.
Television, it is often said, keeps one informed about current events and the latest developments in science and politics. The most distant countries and the strangest customs are brought right into one’s sitting room. It could be argued that the radio performs this service as well; but on television everything is much more living, much more real. Yet here again there is a danger. The television screen itself has a terrible, almost physical charm for us. We get so used to looking at the movements on it, so dependent on its pictures, that it begins to control our lives. People are often heard to say that their television sets have broken down and that they have suddenly found that they have far more time to do things and that they have actually begun to talk to each other again. It makes one think, doesn’t it?
There are many other arguments for and against television. We must realize that television itself is neither good nor bad. It is the uses that it is put to that determine its value to society.
1、What is the major function of paragraph 1?
A、To arouse the reader’s concern
B、To introduce the theme of the whole passage
C、To summarize the whole passage
D、To state the primary uses of TV
2、Television, as a source of entertainment, is____.
A、not very convenient
3、Why are some people against TV?
A、Because TV programs are not interesting
B、Because TV viewers are totally passive
C、Because TV prices are very high.
D、Because TV has both advantages and disadvantages
4、One of the most obvious advantages of TV is that____.
A、it keeps us informed
B、it is very cheap
C、it enables us to have a rest
D、it controls our lives
5、According to the passage, whether TV is good or not depends on____.
B、people’s attitude towards it
C、how we use it

Too often young people get themselves employed quite by accident, not knowing what lies in the way of opportunity for promotion, happiness and security. As a result, they are employed doing jobs that afford them little or no satisfaction. Our school leavers face so much competition that they seldom care what they do as long as they can earn a living. Some stay long at a job and learn to like it; others quit from one to another looking for something to suit them. The young graduates who leave the university look for jobs that offer a salary up to their expectation.
Very few go out into the world knowing exactly what they want and realizing their own abilities. The reason behind all this confusion is that there never has been a proper vocational guidance in our educational institution. Nearly all grope (摸索) in the dark and their chief concern when they look for a job is to ask what salary is like. They never bother to think whether they are suited for the job or, even more important, whether the job suits them. Having a job is more than merely providing yourself and your dependants with daily bread and some money for leisure and entertainment. It sets a pattern of life and, in many ways, determines social status in life, selection of friends, leisure and interest.
n choosing a career you should first consider the type of work which will suit your interest. Nothing is more pathetic than taking on a job in which you have no interest, for it will not only discourage your desire to succeed in life but also ruin your talents and ultimately make you an emotional wreck (受到严重伤害的人) and a bitter person.
1、The reason why some people are unlikely to succeed in life is that they
A、have ruined their talents
B、have taken on an unsuitable job
C、think of nothing but their salary
D、are not aware of their own potential
2、The difficulty in choosing a suitable job lies mainly in that_____.
A、much competition has to be faced
B、many employees have no working experience
C、the young people only care about how much they can earn
D、schools fail to offer students appropriate vocational guidance
3、Which of the following statements is most important according to the passage?
A、Your job must suit your interest.
B、Your job must set a pattern of life.
C、Your job must offer you a high salary.
D、Your job must not ruin your talents.
4、The best title for this passage would be____.
A、What Can A Good Job Offer
B、Earning A Living
C、Correct Attitude On Job-hunting
D、How To Choose A Job
5、The word “pathetic” in Paragraph 3 most probably means____.

Looking back on my childhood, I am convinced that naturalists are born and not made. Although we were brought up in the same way, my brothers and sisters soon abandoned their pressed (紧抱的) flowers and insects. Unlike them, I had no ear for music and languages. I was not an early reader and I could not do mental arithmetic.
Before World War I we spent our summer holidays in Hungary. I have only the dim memory of the house we lived in, of my room and my toys. Nor do I recall clearly the large family of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who gathered next door. But I do have a crystal-clear memory of the dogs, the farm animals, the local birds and, above all, the insects.
I am a naturalist, not a scientist. I have a strong love of the natural world, and my enthusiasm has led me into varied investigations. I love discussing my favorite topics and enjoy burning the midnight oil while reading about other people’s observations and discoveries. Then something happens that brings these observations together in my conscious mind. Suddenly you fancy you see the answer to the riddle (谜), because it all seems to fit together. This has resulted in my publishing 300 papers and books, which some might honor with the title of scientific research.
But curiosity, a keen eye, a good memory and enjoyment of the animal and plant world do not make a scientist; one of the outstanding and essential qualities required is self-discipline, a quality I lack. A scientist, up to a point, can be made. A naturalist is born. If you can combine the two, you get the best of both worlds.
1、According to the author, a born naturalist should first of all be _____.
B、full of enthusiasm
C、full of ambition
2、The first paragraph tells us that the author _____.
A、was interested in flowers and insects in his childhood
B、lost his hearing when he was a child
C、didn’t like his brothers and sisters
D、was born to a naturalist’s family
3、The author says that he is a naturalist rather than a scientist probably because he thinks he _____.
A、just reads about other people’s observations and discoveries
B、comes up with solutions in most natural way
C、has a great deal of trouble doing mental arithmetic
D、lacks some of the qualities required of a scientist
4、The author can’t remember his relatives clearly because _____.
A、he was fully occupied with observing nature
B、he didn’t live very long with them
C、the family was extremely large
D、he was too young when he lived with them
5、Which of the following statements is true?
A、The author believes that a born naturalist cannot be a scientist.
B、The author’s brothers and sisters were good at music and languages.
C、The author read a lot of books about the natural world and the oil industry.
D、The author spent a lot of time working on riddles.

Studies in advanced economies show, as one would expect, that for every 1,000 pounds increase in income there is, indeed, an increased sense of well-being (幸福)---but only for the poorest fifth of the population. Beyond that, there is almost no increase in people’s satisfaction with their lives as income levels increase. In Australia, there is a slightly closer relation between level of income and well-being, but in the US and England there is only an unimportant and irregular relationship. The rich are no happier than the middle classes and the upper middle class is no happier than the lower middle class. Beyond poverty or near-poverty levels of income, if money buys happiness, it buys very little and often it buys none at all.
This is strange because market economists report that the purpose of the market is to maximize the satisfaction of human wants. But they measure that satisfaction, called “utility”, in a circular manner: satisfaction with something is revealed by the very fact that it was bought.
Yet studies show that the things that contribute most to a sense of well-being cannot be bought, such as a good family life, friendship, work satisfaction, and satisfaction with the uses of one’s leisure. There is little relation between these things and people’s incomes. For many people security of income actually contribute more to measured well-being than does level of income.
Most people believe that if they had 25 percent more income they would be much more satisfied with their lives, but those whose incomes are now at that higher level are not more satisfied with their lives. Changes in income do briefly influence our sense of well-being, but even the happiness that comes with an increase in income does not last long.
1、According to the author, people from ____ would feel happier if there is an income increase.
A、upper middle class
B、lower working class
C、lower middle class
D、upper rich class
2、The author implies, but does not directly say, that market economists would NOT agree with one of the following suggestions. Which one?
A、Income increase cannot bring about sense of happiness.
B、Happiness can be bought in a certain sense.
C、Satisfaction of human demands can be met through purchases of goods.
D、Markets can provide people with satisfaction and happiness.
3、According to the passage, all of the following contribute more to the sense of happiness EXCEPT ____.
C、level of income
D、good family life
4、It can be inferred from the passage that in the author’s opinion, sense of happiness is all of the following EXCEPT that ______.
A、it can vary from one social class to another
B、it always changes with the increase in income
C、it is related to many factors
D、it cannot be increased easily
5、What kind of relationship is the passage mainly discussing about?
A、Income increase and sense of happiness
B、Poverty and happiness
C、Income and satisfaction
D、Income increase and social classes
