When I was six, Dad brought home a dog one day, who was called “Brownie”, My brothers and I all loved Brownie and did different things with her. One of us would walk her, another would feed her ,then there were baths, playing catch and many other games .Brownie, in return, loved each and every one of us. One thing that most touched my heart was that she would go to whoever was sick and just be with them. We always felt better when she was around.
One days, as I was getting her food, she chewed up(咬破) one of Dad’s shoes, which had to be thrown away in the end. I knew Dad would be mad and I had to let her know what she did was
Wrong. When I looked at her and said, “Bad girl.” She looked down at the ground and then went and hid. I saw a tear in her eyes.
Brownie turned out to be more than just our family pet. She went everywhere with us.
People would stop and ask if they could pet her. Of course she'd let anyone pet her. She was just
the most lovable dog. There were many dines when we'd be out walking and a small child would
come over and pull on her hair. She never barked (吠) or tried to get away. Funny thing is she
would smile. This frightened people because they thought she was showing her teeth. Far from
the truth, she loved everyone.

was with us.

When you're lying on the white sands of the Mexican Riviera, the stresses (压力) of the
world seem a million miles away. Hey. stop! This is no vacation - yon have to finish something!
Here lies the problem fat travel writer and food critic (评论家) Edie Jarolim. "I always
loved traveling and always liked to eat, but it never occurred to me that I could make money
doing both of those things." Jarolim said. Now you can read her travel advice everywhere-in
Arts and Antiques. in Brides. or in one of her three books. The Complete Idiot Travel Guide to
Mexico's Beach Resorts.
Her job in travel writing began Some eight years ago. After getting a PhD in English in
Canada. she took a test for Frommer's travel guides, passed it, and got the job. After working at
Frommer's, Jarolim worked for a while at Rough Guides in London, then Fodor's, where she fell
so in love with a description of the Southwest of the U.S. that she moved there.
Now as a travel writer, she spends one-third of her year on the road. The rest of the time is
spent completing her tasks and writing reviews of restaurants at home in Tucson, Arizona.
As adventurous as the job sounds, the hard part is fact-checking all the information. Sure,
it's great to write about a tourist attraction, but you'd better get the local (当地的) museum hours
correct or you could really ruin someone's vacation.
46. Which country does Jarolim have in now?

Thousands of people living in the Chinese capital will celebrate the start of the Chinese
New year by heading for the ski resorts (滑雪场). Never mind that Beijing's dry weather seldom
produces snow. It is cold enough in winter for snow-making machines to make a covering for the
hills north to the capital. And the rapid growth of a pleasure-seeking middle class has formed the basis for this new craze(热潮）
Since Beijing's first ski resort was opened ten years ago, the sport has enjoyed astonishing increase. There are now more than a dozen resorts. Clothes markets in the city have added bright colored ski suits to their winter collections. Mr. Wei, a manager of a newly-opened ski resort in Beijing, sees the growth of an industry that could soon lead Chinese to head for the ski resorts of Europe, In recent years ski resorts offering natural snow have opened in China. But many are in faraway areas of the country and can't really match the equipment and services of some ski resorts in Europe.
Beijing's skiing craze is partly a result of the recent increase in private (私有的) cars. This has led to the growth of a Ieisure industry in the capital's suburbs (郊区), which until the late-1990s were unreachable to ordinary people, According to Mr, Wei, about 40% of the visitors to his resort come in their own cars. The rest are bused in by schools, businesses or government Offices.
The problem is making money. Starting ski resorts requires quite a lot of money; hiring land from the local government, preparing the hills, buying snow machines, making sure there are enough water and electricity to run them, and buying ski equipment for hiring out to customers.
The ski resort where Mr. Wei works cost nearly $4m to set up. And. as so often in China when someone comes up with a good idea, many others hash in and price wars break out. Beijing now offers some of the cheapest ski training classes in the world, though with most people rather new to the sport, expecting a few more doing the same job.
50. What does this text mainly talk about?
A. Convenience for skiers brought about by private cars.
B. Skiing as a new way of enjoying one's spare time.
C. Things to be considered when starting a ski resort.
D. A sudden increase of ski training classes in Beijing.

A. To visit more ski areas. B. To ski on natural snow.
C. For a large collection of ski suits. D. For better services and equipment.

How words came into being is unknown. All we assume（推测）is that some early men invented certain sounds, in one way or another, to express thoughts and feelings, actions and things, so that they could talk with each other. Later they agreed upon certain signs, called letters, which could be put together to show those sounds, and which could be written down. Those sounds, whether spoken or written in letters, are called words.
The power of words, then, lies in their associations - the things they bring up to our minds. Words become filled with meaning for us by experience; and the longer we tire, the more certain words bring back to us the happy 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 have powerful effects on our minds and feelings. This clever use of words is what we call literary style（文体）. Above all, the real poet is a master of words. He can express 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 correctly, or they will make our speech silly and common.

59.What is mainly discussed in Paragraph 2?
A. The learning of new words.
B. The importance of old words
