Almost every family buys at least one copy of a newspaper every day. Some people subscribe(订阅)to as many as two or three newspapers. But why do people read newspapers?
Five hundred years ago, news of important happenings—battles lost and won, kings or rulers overthrown(推翻)or killed—took months and even years to travel from one country to another. The news passed by word of mouth and was never accurate. Today we can read in our newspapers of important events that occur in far away countries on the same day they happen.
Apart from supplying news from all over the world, newspapers give us a lot of other useful information. There are weather reports, radios, television and film guides, book reviews, stories and, of course, advertisements. The bigger ones are put in by large companies to bring attention to their products. They pay the newspapers thousands of dollars for the advertising space, but it is worth the money, for news of their products goes into almost every home in the country. For those who produce newspapers, advertisements are also very important. Money earned from advertisements makes it possible for them to sell their newspapers at a low price and still make a profit.
Newspapers often have information on gardening, cooking and fashion as well as a small but very popular section on jokes and cartoons(漫画).

A. Advertisements are the most important part in newspapers.

46.The section on jokes and cartoons is______.(D)
A. read only by children
B. of no value
C. not helpful
D. read by many people
解析：由文章最后一段…but very popular section on jokes and car—toons．可知，笑话和漫画很受欢迎，因此推断有很多人看。

Pepys and his wife Jane had asked some friends to dinner on Sunday, September 2nd, 1666. They were up very late on the Saturday evening, getting everything ready for the next day, and while they were busy they saw the glow(微弱的光)of a fire start in the sky. By 3 o’clock on the Sunday morning, its glow had become so bright that Jane woke her husband to watch it. Pepys slipped on his dressing-gown and went to the window to watch it. It seemed fairly far away, and after a time he went back to bed. When he got up in the morning, it looked, though the fire was dying down, as though he could still see some flames. So he set to work to tidy his room and put his things back where he wanted them.
While he was doing this, Jane came in to say that she had heard the fire was a bad one; hundreds of houses had been burned down in the night and the fire was still burning. Pepys went out to see for himself. He went to the Tower of London and climbed upon a high part of the building so that he could see what was happening. From there, Pepys could see that it was, indeed, a bad fire and that even the houses on London Bridge were burning. The man of the Tower told him that the fire had started in a baker’s shop in Pudding Lane(小巷); the baker’s house had caught fire from the over-heated oven(烤箱)and then the flames had quickly spread to the other houses in the narrow lane. So the Great Fire of London, a fire that lasted nearly five days, destroyed most of the old city and ended, as it is said, at Pie Corner.
50.What is the passage about?(A)
A. The Great Fire of London.
B. Who was the first to discover the fire.
C. What Pepys was doing during the fire.
D. The losses caused by the fire.
51.They were up very late because______.(C)
A. it was Sunday morning
B. they were not very sleepy
C. they were preparing for the dinner
D. they saw the great fire start
解析：题干问“他们晚上待到很晚是为了——”。由第一段第二句They were up very late on the Saturday evening，getting everything readyfor the next day…可知是为第二天的宴会做准备。
52.In the sentence\(D)
A. to be wearing
B. to be pushing
C. to take off
D. to put on
解析：由下文…and went to the window to watch it．可知要去窗户那儿看火光，要穿上睡衣才行。to be wearing表示穿着的状态；to takeoff“脱下”；to be pushing“正在推”，均不符合文义。
53.Why did the flames spread quickly?(B)
A. The oven became very hot.
B. The houses were close together.
C. The baker did nothing to stop it.
D. The baker’s house was burning quickly.
解析：题干问“大火为什么迅速蔓延?”由文章第二段倒数第二句…and then the flames had quickly spread to the other houses in the narrowlane．中的“narrow lane”可推知，这是一个狭窄的小巷，房子一定挨得很紧。

解析：空格处的句子用以引出话题staycation，而下文“As a newword，staycation…”用以解释staycation的含义。故选C项。
解析：D选项及下文都是在解释“There are shortcomings to everypositive thing…”的内容。故应选择讲在家度假缺点的选项。故选D项。

The Manager Office
Victor: Hello, Jenny.
Jenny: Hi, Victor. How are you? You look really tired.
Victor: Yes. I’ve been under a lot of pressure with our project stalling. But you always look so fresh. How can you possibly always remain energetic?
Jenny: Actually, sometimes I find it difficult to progress in work, too. But recently I found doing Yoga can really help you both keep fit and let go of your frustrations.
Victor: That sounds amazing.
Jenny: It really is. Yoga is a five-thousand-year old form of practice which comes from India. It teaches people how to unite mind, body and spirit.
Victor: People practicing yoga do a lot of difficult postures, don’t they? Like holding a foot in the air with only one foot standing. I’ m worried I’ m not that flexible.
Jenny: People practice yoga by doing different postures as well as breathing and meditation. The emphasis is not on how difficult the posture is, but on increasing awareness of your body and rejuvenating it. Also, your flexibility and strength will both improve as you progress.
Victor: Oh, sounds good. I just hope it can help me manage my stress.
Jenny: It will definitely do that.
Yoga is a popular form of practice to keep fit and manage stress. It originates in India and has a history of five thousand years. Yoga practice consists of doing different postures, breathing and meditation. By increasing people’s awareness of their body, it helps to bring a harmony between the mind, body and spirit. Meanwhile, it helps to make people stronger and more flexible. It is especially loved by modern people because it helps to keep healthy and relieve pressure.
