Drawing a picture is the simplest way of putting an idea down on paper.That is     21   men first began to write six thousand years ago or     22   .The alphabet we now use    23      down to us over a long period of time.It was developed from the picture-writing of ancient Egypt.
Picture-writing was useful in many     24     .It could be used to express ideas as well as   25    .For example, a drawing of a   26   meant the object “man”.    27     a drawing of a man lying on the ground with a spear in him meant “   28    ”.
Besides the Egyptians,the Chinese   29   the American Indians also developed ways   30     writing in pictures.But only   31   much could be said this way.Thousands of pictures would have been needed   32     express all the ideas that people might have.It would have taken many thousand more to express all the objects   33     to men.No one could    34       so many pictures in a lifetime.Nor could anyone learn the meaning of all     35   drawings in a lifetime.

Ⅳ.Reading Comprehension(60 points)
Directions:There are five reading passages in this part.Each passage is followed by four questions.For each question there are four suggested answers marked A,B,C and D.Choose the best answer and blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.

Passage One
We can make mistakes at any age.Some mistakes we make are about money.But most mistakes are about people.“Did Jerry really care when I broke up with Helen?”“When I got that great job, did Jim really feel good about it, as a friend? Or did he envy my luck?” When we look back, doubts like these can make us feel bad.But when we look back, it’s too late.
Why do we go wrong about our friends or our enemies? Sometimes what people say hides their real meaning.And if we don’t really listen closely we miss the feeling behind the words.Suppose someone tells you, “You’re a lucky dog.” That’s being friendly.But“lucky dog”? There’s a bit of envy in those words.Maybe he doesn’t see it himself.But bringing in the “dog” puts you down a little.What he may be saying is that he doesn’t think you deserve your luck.
“Just think of all the things you have to be thankful for” is another noise that says one thing and means another.It could mean that the speaker is trying to get you to see your problem as part of your life as a whole.But is he? Wrapped up in this phrase is the thought that your problem isn’t important.It’s telling you to think of all the starving people in the world when you haven’t got a date for Saturday night.
How can you tell the real meaning behind someone’s words? One way is to take a good look at the person talking.Do his words fit the way he looks? Does what he says agree with the tone of voice? His posture? The look in his eyes? Stop and think.The minute you spend thinking about the real meaning of what people say to you may save another mistake.
* 36.According to the author,the reason why we go wrong about our friends is that .
* 37.In the sentence “Maybe he doesn’t see it himself” in paragraph 2, the pronoun “it” refers to .
* 38.When we listen to a person talking, the most important thing for us to do is to .
* 39.The author most probably is a           .
Passage Two
There is no creature that does not need sleep or complete rest every day.
If you want to know why, just try going without sleep for a long period of time.You will discover that your mind and body would become too tired to work properly.You would become irritable and find it hard to think clearly or concentrate on your work.So sleep is quite simply the time when the cells of your body recover from the work of the day and build up supplies of energy for the next period of activity.
One of the things we all know about sleep is that we are unconscious in sleep.We do not know what is going on around us.But that doesn’t mean the body stops all activity.The important organs continue to work during sleep, but most of the body functions are slowed down.
For example, our breathing becomes slower and deeper.The heart beats more slowly, and the blood pressure is lower.Our arms and legs become limp(柔软的)and muscles are at rest.It would be impossible for our body to relax to such an extent if we were awake.So sleep does for us what the most quiet rest can not do.
Your body temperature becomes lower when you are asleep, which is the reason people go to sleep under some kind of covers.And even though you are unconscious, many of your reflexes(反射动作)still work.For instance, if someone tickles(使觉得痒)your foot, you will put it away in your sleep, or even brush a fly from your forehead.You do these things without knowing it.
* 40.If you don’t have as much sleep as your body needs, you will          .
* 41.The cells of your body develop supplies of energy             .
* 42.In the clause“…that we are unconscious in sleep”(Para.3),the word “unconscious” means          .
* 43.When you are sleeping,           .
Passage Three
Space is a dangerous place,not only because of meteors but also because of rays from the sun and other stars.The atmosphere again acts as our protective blanket on earth.Light gets through,and this is essential for plants to make the food which we eat.Heat,too,makes our environment endurable.Various kinds of rays come through the air from outer space,but enormous quantities of radiation from the sun are screened off.As soon as men leave the atmosphere they are exposed to this radiation.But their spacesuits or the walls of their spacecraft,if they are inside,do prevent a lot of radiation damage.
Radiation is the greatest known danger to explorers in space.The unit of radiation is called “rem”.Scientists have reason to think that a man can put up with far more radiation than 0.1 rem without being damaged;the figure of 60 rems has been agreed on.The trouble is that it is extremely difficult to be sure about radiation damage—a person may feel perfectly well,but the cells of his or her sex organs may be damaged,and this will not be discovered until the birth of deformed(畸形的)children or even grandchildren.Missions of the Apollo flights have had to cross belts of high radiation and,during the outward and return journeys,the Apollo crew accumulated a large amount of rems.So far,no dangerous amounts of radiation have been reported,but the Apollo missions have been quite short.We simply do not know yet how men are going to get on when they spend weeks and months outside the protection of the atmosphere,working in a space laboratory.Drugs might help to decrease the damage done by radiation,but no really effective ones have been found so far.
* 44.According to the first paragraph,the atmosphere is essential to man in that .
* 45.We know from the passage that .
* 46.It can be inferred from the passage that .
* 47.The best title for this passage would be .
Passage Four
How men first learned to invent words is unknown;in other words, the origin of language is a mystery.All we really know is that men, unlike animals, somehow invented certain sounds to express thoughts and feelings, actions and things, so that they could communicate with each other;and that later they agreed upon certain signs, called letters, which could be combined to represent those sounds and which could be written down.Those sounds, whether spoken, or written in letters, we call words.
The power of words, then, lies in their associations—the things they bring up before our minds.Words become filled with meaning for us by experience;and the longer we live, the more certain words recall to us the glad and sad events of our past;and the more we read and learn, the more the number of words that mean something to us increases.
Great writers are those who not only have great thoughts but also express these thoughts in words which appeal powerfully to our minds and emotions.This charming and telling use of words is what we call literary(文字的)style.Above all,the real poet is a master of words.He can convey his meaning in words which sing like music,and which by their position and association can move men to tears.We should therefore learn to choose our words carefully and use them accurately,or they will make our speech silly and rude.
* 48.The origin of language           .
* 49.One of the reasons why men invented certain sounds to express thoughts and actions is that             .
* 50.What is true about words?
* 51.The real power of words exists in their .
Passage Five
It seems so natural to put up an umbrella to keep the water off when it rains.But actually the umbrella was not invented as protection against rain.Its first use was as a shade against the sun!
Nobody knows who first invented it, but the umbrella was used in very ancient times.Probably the first to use it were the Chinese, as early as the eleventh century B.C.
We know that the umbrella was used in ancient Egypt and Babylon as a sunshade.And there was a strange thing connected with its use: it became a symbol of honour and authority.In the Far East in ancient times the
umbrella was allowed to be used only by royalty or by those in high office.
In Europe, the Greeks were the first to use the umbrella as a sunshade.And the umbrella was in common use in ancient Greece.But it is believed that the first persons in Europe to use the umbrella as protection against the rain were the ancient Romans.
During the Middle Ages, the use of the umbrella practically disappeared.Then it appeared again in Italy in the late sixteenth century.And again it was considered a symbol of power and authority.By 1680, the umbrella appeared in France, and later on in England.
By the eighteenth century, the umbrella was used against rain throughout most of Europe.Umbrellas have not changed much in style during all this time, though they have become much lighter in weight.It wasn’t until the twentieth century that women’s umbrellas began to be made, in a whole variety of colours.
* 52.Which of the following statements is NOT true about the umbrella?
* 53.A strange feature of the umbrella’s use is that it was used as             .
* 54.In Europe, the umbrella was first used against the rain            .
* 55.This passage talks mainly about .
