Part IH Reading Comprehension (40%)
On Thursday afternoon Mrs.Clarke, dressed for going out, took her handbag with her money and her key in it, locked the door and went to the club.She always went there on Thursdays.It was a nice outing for an old woman who lived alone.
At six o'clock she came home, let herself in and at once smelt cigarette smoke.Cigarette smoke in her house?How?How?Had someone got in? She checked the back door and the windows.All were locked or fastened, as usual.There was no sign of forced entry.
Over a cup of tea she wondered whether someone had a key that fitted her front door—"a master key” perhaps.So she stayed at home the following Thursday.Nothing happened.Was anyone watching her movements? On the Thursday after that she went out at her usual time,dressed as usual,but she didn't go to the club.Instead she took a short cut home again,letting herself in through her garden and the back door.She settled down to wait.
It was just after four o'clock when the front door bell rang.Mrs.Clarke was making a cup of tea at the time.The bell rang again,and then she heard her letter-box being pushed open.With the kettle of boiling water in her hand,she moved quietly toward the front door.A long piece of wire appeared through the letter box,and then a hand.The wire turned and caught around the knob on the door-lock.Mrs.Clarke raised the kettle and poured the water over the hand.There was a shout outside,and the skin seemed to drop off the fingers like a glove.The wire fell to the floor,the hand was pulled back,and Mrs.Clarke heard the sound of running feet.

We find that bright children are rarely held back by mixed-ability teaching.On the contrary, both their knowledge and experience are enriched.We feel that there are many disadvantages in dividing pupils into different groups.It does not take into account the fact that children develop at different rates.It can have a bad effect on both the bright and the not-so-bright child.After all,it can be quite discouraging to be at the bottom of the top grade!
Besides,it is rather unreal to grade pupils just according to their intellectual ability.This is only one aspect of their total personality.We are concerned to develop the abilities of all our pupils to the full,not just their academic ability.We also value personal qualities and social skills,and we find that mixed-ability teaching contributes to all these aspects of learning.
In our classrooms,we work in various ways.The pupils often work in groups:this gives them the opportunity to learn to co-operate,to share,and to develop leadership skills.They also learn how to cope with personal problems as well as how to think,to make decisions,to analyze and evaluate,and to communicate effectively.The pupils learn from each other as well as from the teacher.
Sometimes the pupils work in pairs;sometimes they work on individual tasks and assignments,and they can do this at their own speed.They also have some formal class teaching when this is appropriate.We encourage our pupils to use the library,and we teach them the skills they need in order to do this effectively. An advanced pupil can do advanced work:it does not matter how old the child is.We expect our pupils to do their best,not their least,and we give them every encouragement to attain this goal.

In the 1960s,medical researchers Thomas Holmes and Richard Rahe developed a checklist of stressful events.They appreciated the tricky point that any major change can be stressful.Negative events like “serious illness of a family member”were high on the list,but so were some positive life-changing events,like marriage.When you take the Holmes-Rahe test you must remember that the score does not reflect how you deal with stress-it only shows how much you have to deal with.And we now know that the way you handle these events dramatically affects your chances of staying healthy.
By the early 1970s, hundreds of similar studies had followed Holmes and Rahe.And millions of Americans who work and live under stress worried over the reports.Somehow, the research was described briefly in a memorable message. Women’s magazines ran headlines like“Stress causes illness!”If you want to stay physically and mentally healthy, the articles said,avoid stressful events.
But such simple advice is impossible to follow.Even if stressful events are dangerous,many-like the death of a loved one-are impossible to avoid.Moreover,any warning to avoid all stressful events is a prescription(处方)for staying away from opportunities as well as trouble.Since any change can be stressful,a person who wanted to be completely free of stress would never marry,have a child,take a new job or move.
The notion that all stress makes you sick also ignores a lot of what we know about people.It assumes we're all weak and passive in the face of difficulties.But what about human initiative and creativity? Many people come through periods of stress with more physical and mental energy than they had before.We also know that a long time without change or challenge can lead to boredom,and physical and metal strain.

44. If a person wanted to avoid stress completely,he would have to_____.

45. Which of the following best describes the writer's tone in the passage?
Even plants can run a fever,especially when they're under attack by insects or disease.But unlike humans, plants can have their temperature taken from 3,000 feet away---straight up.A decade ago,adapting the infrared(红外线)scanning technology developed for military purposes and other satellites,physicist Stephen Paley came up with a quick way to take the temperature of crops to determine which ones are under attack.The goal was to let farmers precisely target pesticide(杀虫剂)spraying rather than rain poison on a whole field,which always includes plants that don't have pest(害虫)problems.
Even better,Paley's Remote Scanning Services Company could detect crop problems before they became visible to the eye.An infrared scanner,on a plane flying at 3,000 feet at night,measured the heat send out by crops.The data was turned into a color-coded map showing where plants were running “fevers”.Farmers could then spot-spray,using 50 to 70 percent less pesticide than they otherwise would.
The bad news is that Paley's company closed down in 1984,after only three years.Farmers resisted the new technology and long-term supporters were hard to find.But with the renewed concern about pesticides on produce,and refinements in infrared scanning,Paley hopes to get back into operation.Agriculture experts have no doubt about how the technology works."This technique can be used on 75 percent of agricultural land in the United States",says George Oerther of Texas A&M.Ray Jackson,who recently retired from the Department of Agriculture,thinks long-distance infrared crop scanning could be adopted by the end of the decade,but only if Paley finds the financial support which he failed to obtain 10 years ago.

A friend of mine met with an accident driving in darkness.His legs were so hurt that he couldn't move.What was the 51 was that he found himself unable to ask for help---his mobile phone went out of 52 because of the exhausted battery. 53 could be done but to wait in cold wilderness.It was eight hours later that day broke, and then the rescue arrived.
It can 54 be imagined that he could stand the horror in the darkness for so long.Even more surprising was his 55"First of all, I checked up my physical conditions and found myself not in mortal danger.As there was no tools to 56 help,I leaned back in my seat trying my best to 57 the wound from bleeding.In this way I dozed off.”

Don't you think you can compare it with life 64 ?When you meet with difficulty in life and work,and you are not clear about it yet,you 65 put up struggle immediately.It seems to be a negative attitude,but a person who can afford to do so must have foresight as well as a great courage in the first place.
