The Leaning Tower of Pisa has defied (违背) the laws of gravity for seven and a half centuries.
Every year, on June 19th, a professor from the University of Pisa climbs to the bell tower and
measures the increase in the slant with special instruments. And every year the professor makes
the same report: the tower has leaned a fraction of an inch more. Last summer, the 125 foot-high
tower was leaning an incredible 15 feet out of line. Scientists say that unless a way is found to stop
the tilt, the tower will collapse in less than 80 years.
The tower is leaning because the soft subsoil of Pisa will not support it. Its foundation is
sinking into the soil at an angle, causing the tower to lean. Since a tremor could shake the
foundation loose, the ringing of the tower’s bells was forbidden in 1959. Trucks are not allowed to
pass in the neighborhood of the tower for this same reason.
36. The statement which best expresses the main idea of this passage is that ______.
A. the Leaning Tower of Pisa is in increasing danger of collapsing
B. every year a professor measures the increase in the tower’s slant
C. the tower is leaning because the subsoil of Pisa will not support it
D. there is only one way to save the Leaning Tower of Pisa
37. It can be inferred from the passage that last summer the tower was found tilted further by
A. 15 feet B. more than one inch
C. a fraction of an inch D. several inches
38. The tower tilts more and more because ______.
A. the ringing of the bells causes a tremor
B. there are passing trucks nearby
C. it is built on soft soil
D. its foundation has been shaken loose
39. Why is the tower described as defying the laws of gravity?
A. It had resisted shaking tremors for hundreds of years.
B. It was built on soft ground.
C. It leans a fraction of an inch more every year.
D. Scientists think that it should have collapsed long ago.
Dr. Hausman is a hair detective (侦探). Once a mountain lion killed a thirteen-year-old boy. The
town offered a reward of thousand dollars for anyone who would kill the lion.
One day an excited hunter came to the town to say that he had killed the mountain lion. As
proof that he had killed the right animal, he showed a ball of human hair. He said he had taken the
hair from the stomach of the mountain lion.
However, another hunter soon showed up to claim (要求得到) the reward. He too had a ball
of human hair that he said he had taken from the dead lion's stomach. The town did not know
which man to pay. Maybe neither one had killed the right mountain lion. To settle the argument,
they decided to turn the whole thing over to Dr. Hausman.
Dr. Hausman studied the hair and reported that the second hunter should be paid. The hair in
the stomach of the mountain lion he had killed matched the hair of the boy. The whole town was
relieved to know for sure that the killer had been found.
There are other kinds of detectives who do not wear a uniform but who, like Hausman, solve
endless mysteries every year. There is, for example, the dust detective. Tiny bits of dust stick to
your clothes, your fingernails, your hair, or your shoes. They catch in your nose and in your ears.
They tell where you have been and what you have done lately. The dust detective often helps
catch a criminal (罪犯) by proving that he has been on the scene (现场) of the crime.
Then there is the wood detective. By studying a piece of wood he can tell what kind of tree
the piece of wood came from. He can tell where it was grown, and how old it is. He can even tell
you what the weather was like at a certain place the year Columbus landed in America. The
growth rings on a tree tell him.

The winter holiday season is the most happy time of the year. Students from elementary school
through college have about two weeks' vacation, beginning shortly before Christmas and ending
soon after New Year's Day. Many families go away for the holidays, but those who stay home
have fun, too. There are many parties to celebrate the birth of Christ and the arrival of the new
Christianity (基督教) is based on the teachings and life of Jesus Christ. Jesus was born in
Bethlehem in ancient Judea. No one knows exactly when Jesus was born. The year 1 A.D. is
supposed to be the year of his birth, but historians now know that he was actually born several
years before that time. No one knows the exact date of his birth either, but Christians have
celebrated it on December 25 since the fourth century.
The spirit of Christmas arrives about a month before the holiday itself. Late in November,
street lights and store windows are decorated with Christmas colors of red and green.
Stores depend on Christmas shoppers for about one-fourth of their yearly sales. Smart
shoppers buy their gifts far in advance, before the Christmas rush. Christmas is expensive. To earn
extra money for gifts, in December many Americans get part-time jobs.
The most beautiful and meaningful parts of the holiday occur at home and in church. Many
families go to church on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning. After that, they gather around the
tree and open their gifts. Then they sit down to enjoy a Christmas dinner --turkey (火鸡) or ham,
sweet potatoes, and vegetables.
44. According to some historians, Jesus ______.
A. was sent by the God to earth to save the human race
B. was born on December 25
C. was born several years before the year 1 A.D.

Although we do not know the exact origin of the earliest Olympic games, we do know that the
ancient Greeks had a festival in which athletes (运动员) competed in sports. On the opening day
of the festival, perhaps 30,000 visitors crowded the streets. There were no sports on this day and
the athletes took a sacred oath (神圣的誓言). They promised to play fair in the sports, a promise
that is part of the oath Olympic athletes take today.
On the second morning of the festival, young athletes ran out onto the field. The first event
will be a foot race 607 feet in length. In the evening, after the sports, the visitors to Olympia
would enjoy food, songs and speeches. They also did some business. At Olympia, keen minds (学
者) from all over Greece exchanged ideas. Philosophers argued before the public. Poets recited
This celebration was held every four years and was open to all men and boys who spoke
Greek as their native language. The competition itself consisted of a single race and it was over in
The Olympic games came into being in 776 BC (before the Christ) and were most popular
around the fifth century BC. At that time, the winner of a game received neither gold nor silver but
a simple crown of olive leaves (橄榄叶) -- the highest honor a Greek could win. His family and
his city were prouder of his victory than of winning a war. His name and achievement were carved
The first of the modern Olympics took place in the same country as the original festivals: two
hundred eighty-five athletes from thirteen countries competed in Athens in 1890. Today over ten
thousand athletes from over one hundred seventy countries and regions compete --- every four
years in a different city of the world.

A certain hunter had found a piece of forest where there were plenty of animals to hunt. The only
trouble was that the place was very difficult to get to.
He returned from his first visit to the place in late autumn, and could not get back until the
snow melted in the following spring. Then he went to the pilot of a small plane, who earned his
living by carrying hunters over parts of the country where there were no roads and no railways. He
asked the pilot to take him back to the piece of forest.
The pilot did not know the place, so the hunter showed it to him on the map. "But there is
nowhere to land there," said the pilot. "I have flown over that we can't land anywhere between this
river and these mountains."
"I thought you were a wonderful pilot," said the hunter, "some of my friends said you could
land a plane on a postage stamp."
"That's right," answered the pilot. "I can land a plane where nobody else can. But I tell you
there is nowhere to land in the place you are talking about."
"And what if I tell you that another pilot did land me there last spring?" said the hunter.
"Is that true?" asked the pilot.
"Yes, it is. I swear (发誓) it."
Well, this pilot could not let himself beaten by another, so he agreed to take the hunter.
When they reached the place, the hunter pointed out a small spot without trees in the middle
of the forest, with a steep rise (陡坡) at one end. The pilot thought there was not enough room to
land there, but the hunter said that the other pilot had done so the year before, so down went the
plane. When it came to the rise, it turned right over (翻转) onto its back. As the hunter climbed
out, he smiled happily and said, "Yes, that is exactly how the other pilot managed it last time."

D. a pilot who had never heard of such a place

A. the place for landing was as big as a room
