In July 1994 Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, was struck by 21 pieces of a comet(彗星). When the fragments(碎片)landed in the southern part of the giant planet, the explosions were watched by scientists here on earth. But what if our own planet was hit by a comet?
The year is 2094. It has been announced that a comet is heading towards the Earth. Most of it will miss our planet, but two fragments will probably hit the southern part of the Earth. The news has caused panic.
On 17 July, a fragment four kilometres wide enters the Earth’ s atmosphere with a huge explosion. About half of the fragment is destroyed. But the major part survives and hits the South Atlantic at 200 times the speed of sound. The sea boils and an enormous wave is created and spreads. The wall of water rushes towards southern Africa at 800 kilometres an hour. Cities on the African coast are totally destroyed and millions of people are drowned. The wave moves into the Indian Ocean and heads towards Asia.
Millions of people are already dead in the southern part of the Earth, but the north won’ t escape for long. Tons of broken pieces are thrown into the atmosphere by the explosions. As the sun is hidden by clouds of dust, temperatures around the world fall to almost zero. Crops are ruined. Wars break out as countries fight for food. A year later civilization has collapsed. No more than 10 million people have survived.
Could it really happen? In fact, it has already happened more than once in the history of the Earth. The dinosaurs(恐龙)were on the Earth for over 160 million years. Then 65 million years ago they suddenly disappeared. Many scientists believe that the Earth was hit by a space fragment. The dinosaurs couldn’ t survive in the cold climate that followed and they became extinct. Will we meet the same end?
48.Which of the following is NOT TRUE according to the author’ s description of the disaster in 2094?(C)
A. The whole world becomes extremely cold.
B. All the coastal cities in Africa are destroyed.
C. The whole mankind becomes extinct.
D. The visit of the comet results in wars.
解析：推理判断题。作者在这篇科幻小说中描述了2094年7月17日彗星撞击地球后的情形。在倒数的第二段作者说，A yearlater civilization has collapsed．No more than 10 million people havesurvived．而不是人类在地球上灭绝了。extinct意为“灭绝”。所以正确的答案为C。
49.Why does the author mention dinosaurs at the end of the passage?(C)
A. Because they could only live in the warm climate.
B. Because they once dominated the Earth.
C. Because their extinction indicates future disasters.
D. Because dinosaurs and humans never live in the same age.
50.In writing the passage, the author intends to______.(D)
A. give an accurate description of the possible disaster in the future
B. prove that humans will sooner or later be destroyed
C. tell the historical development of the Earth
D. warn of a possible disaster in the future
It is often difficult for a man to be quite sure what tax he ought to pay to the government because it depends on so many different things; whether the man is married; how many children he has; whether he supports any relations; how much he earns; how much interest he receives; how much he has spent on his house during the year, and so on and so forth. All this makes it difficult to decide exactly how much the tax is.
There was a certain artist who was always very careful to pay the proper amount.
One year, after posting his check as usual, he began to wonder if he had paid enough, and after a lot of work, with a pencil and paper, he decided that he had not. He believed that he owed the government something.
He was just writing another check to send to the tax-collector when the postman dropped a letter into the box at the front door. Opening it, the artist was surprised to find inside it a check for five pounds from the tax-collector. The official explained that too much had been paid, and that therefore the difference was now returned to the taxpayer.
51.It is mentioned in the passage that one has to pay tax according to______.(B)
A. how much education one has received
B. whether one is single or married
C. how old one’ s children are
D. where one lives
解析：事实细节题。题十意为“文章提到，一个人应该根据什么来缴税?”由文章的第一段第一句话看出，一个人所缴税款是由很多方面决定的。whether the man is married是其中的一项。所以正确的答案为B。
52.The word \(C)
53.After a lot of work,the artist thought that he had paid the government______.(A)
A. less tax than he should have
B. more tax than he should have
C. as much tax as usual
D. just enough tax
解析：事实细节题。题干意为“经过计算后，艺术家认为这次他缴纳的税款如何?”从文章的第三段内容可知，He believed that heowed the government something．根据意思，他认为自己仍欠政府的钱，缴纳的应该比实际缴的多。所以正确的答案为A。
54.Why did the tax-collector send a letter to the artist?(B)
A. To send him a new tax form.
B. To return the money over-paid.
C. To remind him of paying the tax.
D. To explain the rules of tax-paying.
解析：推理判断题。题干意为“为什么税务官给艺术家钱?”由文章的最后一句话可知，too much had been paid，他的税额交多了，因此，多余的税款现在退还纳税人。所以正确的答案为B。
Eyesight plays a very important role in our daily life. Every waking moment, the eyes are working to see the world around us. Over forty percent of Americans worry about losing eyesight, but it’ s easy to include steps into our daily life to ensure healthy eyes. Here are five suggestions for a lifetime of healthy eyesight:
Schedule yearly exams.【B1】______ Experts advise parents to bring babies 6 to 12 months of age to the doctor for a careful check. The good news is that millions of children now can have yearly eye exams and following treatment, including eyeglasses.
Protect against UV rays(紫外线). Long-term stay in the sun creates risk to your eyes. No matter what the season is, it’ s extremely important to wear sunglasses.【B2】______
Give your eyes a break. Two-thirds of Americans spend up to seven hours a day using computers or other digital products.【B3】______ Experts recommend that people practice the 20/20/20 rule: every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break and look at something 20 feet away.
【B4】______ As part of a healthy diet, eat more fruits and vegetables each day. Vitamins(维生素)C and E help protect eyesight and promote eye health.
Practice safe wear and care of contact lenses(隐形眼镜). Many Americans use contact lenses to improve their eyesight. While some follow the medical guidance for wearing contact lenses, many are breaking the rules and putting their eyesight at risk.【B5】______ Otherwise, you may have problems such as red eyes, pain in the eyes, or a more serious condition.
[A]Eat your greens.
[B]Eye care should begin early in life.
[C]They can properly protect your eyes.
[D]Stay in good shape by taking more vitamins.
[E]Parents usually don’ t care about their own eyesight.
[F]Always follow the doctor’ s advice for appropriate wear.
[G]This frequent eye activity increases the risk for eye tiredness.
解析：根据本段第一句“Schedule yearly exams．”和空格后的“Experts advise parents to bring babies 6 to 12 months of age…”与B选项中的Eye care和early in life相符，故选B项。
解析：Eat your greens．多吃绿色蔬菜。本段空格后面的内容均与饮食有关，并说明了健康饮食对保护视力的作用，所以选A项。
解析：上下文均与戴隐形眼镜有关，所以选择含有关键词wear的选项。同时medical guidance和doctor’s advice也互为暗示。故F为正确选项。
参考词汇：谋职：alpply for a position
