A. Banff and Portland. 小学+初中+高中

小学+初中+高中 C. Portland and Bordeaux. B The first drawings on walls appeared in caves thousands of years ago. Later the Ancient Romans and Greeks wrote their names and protest (抗议) poems on buildings. Modern graffiti (涂鸦艺术) seems to have appear ed in Philadelphia in the early 1960s, and by the late sixties it had reached New York. The new art form really took off in the 1970s, when people began writing their names, or “tags”, on buildings all over the city. In the mid-seventies it was sometimes hard to see out of a subway car window, because the trains were completely covered in spray (喷射) paintings known as masterpieces. In the early days, the “taggers” were part of street crowds who were concerned with marking their territory (领地). They worked in groups called “crews” and called what they did “wri ting”—the term “graffiti” was first used by The New York Ti mes and the novelist Norman Mailer. Art galleries in New York began buying graffiti in the early seventies. But at the same time when it began to be regarded as an art form, John Lindsay, the then mayor of New York, declared the first war on graffiti. By the 1980s it became much harder to write on subway trains without being caught, and instead many of the more established graffiti artists began using roofs of buildings. The debate over whether graffiti is art or deliberate damage is still going on. Peter Vallone, a New York city councilor ( 顾问 ), thinks that graffiti done with permission can be art, but if it is on someone else’s property it becomes a crime. “I have a message for the graffiti destroyers out there,” he said recently, “and your freedom of expression ends where my property begins.” On the other hand, Felix, a member of the Berlin-based group Reclaim Your City, says that artists are reclaiming (开拓,改造) cities for the public from advertisers, and that graffiti represents freedom and makes cities livelier. For decades graffiti has been a springboard (跳板) to international fame for a few. Jean-Michel Basquiat began spraying on the street in the 1970s before becoming a respected artist in the 80s. The Frenchman Blek le Rat and the British artist Banksy have achieved international fame by producing complex works with stencils (模板), 小学+初中+高中 D. Lisbon and Banff.

小学+初中+高中 often making political or humorous points. Works by Banksy have been sold for over ? 100,000. Graffiti is now sometimes big business. 24. Why was the seventies an important decade in the history of graffiti? A. That was when modern graffiti first appeared. B. That was when modern graffiti first became really popular. C. That was when graffiti first reached New York. D. That was when graffiti first appeared on subway car windows. 25. What does the underlined word “taggers” in the second paragraph mean? A. Names of people who draw graffiti. B. Building where paints were sprayed. C. People who marked surface with graffiti. D. People who were interested in graffiti. 26. The Berlin-based group Reclaim Your City holds the view that_____. A. involving young people in graffiti stops them being involved with serious crime. B. graffiti helps the public to own the streets and take control away from advertisers. C. graff iti actually increases the value of property by making the area more attractive. D. graffiti can free artist from being caught by the police. 27. What is the author’s final opinion about graffiti? A. Graffiti has now become mainstream and can benefit artists. B. Graffiti is not a good way to become a respected artist. C. Some popular graffiti artists end up being ignored by the art world. D. Some graffiti caused inconvenience to the local environment. C A hybrid electric vehicle ( 混 合 动 力 车 ) or HEV is a vehicle driven by the combination of petrol engine and electric motor. Terrence has been driving a HEV for five years. He really doesn’t understand why more people aren’t accepting them. “I probably spend about $ 7 a day on petrol,” the taxi driver told news. com. au. In his previous conventional vehicle Terrence said he was spending up to $ 30 a day 小学+初中+高中

小学+初中+高中 on petrol, meaning he saves almost $ 6000 every year. The Toyota spokesman said this was quite a high saving and official tests estimate (估计) an average driver would only save about 33 percent off their current bill. This means a driver paying $ 30 a day on petrol would see their bill drop to about $ 20 using the hybrid. “A taxi driver that drives in built-up areas and spends little time on highways will notice a higher fuel saving,” he said. “Low speeds allow the electric motors to be used more and the petrol engine used less.” While some people are skeptical about how reliable hybrids are, Terrence said he had never run out of power. His Camry cost about $ 34,000 and so after five years, it’s nearly paid for itself. “For cab drivers, it’s a real advantage because of the cost-effectiveness,” he said. Terrence has no complaints about the car. “I love it, the calm and quietness of it, the simplicity of it—you just jump in and go. The maintenance(保养)is really low. But the only difficulty is finding someone to service the car as there are not many experienced mechanics(机修工).” Terrence said it’s “extraordinary” that more drivers aren’t buying more hybrid electric vehicles and that governments are not encouraging this more. “I think people have a view that you have to plug it in, which is not true. A lack of information about the cars may be stopping people from t aking the plunge. It’s not promoted at all for the public to understand—it’s simplifying the actual owning of a car—you don’t have to do so many things to own it and run it, it’s just so much simpler. Why wouldn’t the government promote such a thing?” 28. How much does an average driver save each day by driving a hybrid, according to the Toyota spokesman? A. $ 30 B. $ 20 C. $ 10 D. $ 7

29. Terrence’s problem with his HEV at the moment is about the ________. A. speed B. power C. price D. service

30. When saying “extraordinary”, Terrence thinks it is ________. A. understandable B. wonderful C. doubtful D. unbelievable

31. What does Terren ce think prevent the popularity of hybrid cars? A. The difficulty in servicing the car. 小学+初中+高中

小学+初中+高中 B. The restriction of the government. C. The lack of information about HEV. D. The inconvenience with charging the car.

D If you are taking vitamin supplements to reduce your risk of heart disease or cancer, a group of health experts want you to know that those vitamins may actu ally increase your risk of cancer. The US Preventive Services Task Force came to this conclusion after reviewing dozens of studies. Nearly half of adults in the US take at least one vitamin or mineral supplement on a regular basis. These pills are advertised as a way to promote general health. In some cases, producers promote them as cancer fighters and heart protectors. Studies in animals and in laboratory dishes suggest that oxidative( 氧化性的) stress contributes to diseases like cancer and heart disease. If so, there is a reason to believe that antioxidants—including beta-carotene, vitamins A, C, and E—could be useful as preventive medicines. But when the Task Force examined the medical evidence on vitamins, it found “inadequate(不充分的) evidence” to support the claims that vitamin and mineral supplements benefit healthy adults. “Cardiovascular(心血管的) disease and cancer have a significant health impact in America, and we all want to find ways to prevent these diseases,” Dr. Virginia Moyer, who heads the Task Force, said in a statement. But so far, she added, the medical evidence does not show that taking vitamins is helpful in this aspect. However, the Task Force did find “adequate evidence” that people with a raised risk for lung cancer actually increase their risk further by taking beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. The Task Force recommendations of taking vitamins regularly apply to healthy adults aged 50 and older who don't have “ special nutritional needs”. The advice does not apply to children, women who are pregnant or may become pregnant, people 小学+初中+高中

小学+初中+高中 with chronic illnesses, or people who have to take supplements because they can't get all their essential nutrients from their diet. 32. Studies in animals and in laboratory dishes find out________. A. adequate evidence that taking vitamins are helpful for treating lung cancer B. cardiovascular disease spreads very fast in America C. oxidative stress can lead to heart disease and cancer D. people must take vitamins on a regular basis 33. What can we conclude from Task Force's findings? A. Scientists want to control cardiovascular disease. B. In some aspects, taking vitamins is not useful. C. Producers cannot produce medical-use vitamins. D. Vitamins must be useful to prevent cancer and heart disease. 34. Who can take vitam ins regularly according to the advice of the Task Force? A. A 60-year-old healthy worker. B. A 15-year-old boy with short-sightedness. C. A 34-year-old pregnant lady. D. A 40-year-old man who never eats vegetables or fruits. 35. What's the best title for the text? A. An Inside Look at Vitamins B. Task Force: Ending to Vitamins C. Vitamins: To Live or to Kill D. Taking Vitamins to Prevent Diseases May Fail
