As cultural symbols go, the American car is quite young. The Model T Ford was built at the Piquette Plant in Michigan a century ago, with the first rolling off the assembly line (CE) or September 27, 1908. Only eleven cars were produced the next month. But eventually Henry For would build fifteen million of them.

Modern America was born on the road, behind a wheel. The car shaped some of the most lasting aspects of American culture: the roadside diner, the billboard, the motel, even the hamburger. For most of the last century, the car represented what it meant to be American- going forward at high speed to find new worlds. The road novel, the road movie, these are the most typical American ideas, born of abundant petrol, cheap cars and a never- ending interstate highway system, the largest public works project in history.

In 1928 Herbert Hoover imagined an America with a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage." Since then, this society has moved onward, never looking back, as the car transformed America from a farm-based society into an industrial power.zxx.k

The cars that drove the American Dream have helped to create a global ecological disaster. In America the demand for oil has grown by 22 percent since 1990.

The problems of excessive (过度的) energy consumption, climate change and population growth have been described in a book by the American writer Thomas L. Friedman. He fears the worst, but hopes for the best.

Friedman points out that the green economy (经济 ) is a chance to keep American strength. “The ability to design, build and export green technologies for producing clean water, clean air and healthy and abundant food is going to be the currency of power in the new century.”

28. Why is hamburger mentioned in paragraph 2?

ATo explain Americans love for travelling by car.

BTo show the influence of cars on American culture.

CTo stress the popularity of fast food with Americans.

DTo praise the effectiveness of America' s road system.

29. What has the use of cars in America led to?

ADecline of economy.

BEnvironmental problems.

CA shortage of oil supply .

DA farm-based society.

30. What is Friedman's attitude towards America's future?

In 1812, the year Charles Dickens was bom, there were 66 novels published in Britain. People had been writing novels for a century- most experts date the first novel to Robinson Crusoe in 1719-

but nobody wanted to do it professionally. The steam-powered printing press was still in its early stages; the literacy (识字) rate in England was under 50%. Many works of fiction appeared without the names of the authors, often with something like“By a lady.”Novels, for the most part, were looked upon as silly, immoral, or just plain bad.

In 1870, when Dickens died, the world mourned him as its first professional writer and publisher, famous and beloved, who had led an explosion in both the publication of novels and their readership and whose characters- from Oliver Twist to Tiny Tim- were held up as moral touchoustones.Today Dickens' greatness is unchallenged. Removing him from the pantheon(名人堂)of English literature would make about as much sense as the Louvre selling off the Mona Lisa.

How did Dickens get to the top? For all the feelings readers attach to stories, literature is a numbers game, and the test of time is extremely difficult to pass. Some 60,000 novels were published during the Victorian age, from 1837 to1901; today a casual reader might be able to name a half-dozen of them. It's partly true that Dickens' style of writing attracted audiences

from all walks of life. It's partly that his writings rode a wave of social, political and scientific progress. But it' s also that he rewrote the culture of literature and put himself at the center. No one will ever know what mix of talent, ambition, energy and luck made Dickens such a singular writer. But as the 200th anniversary of his birth approaches, it is possible- and important for our own culture- to understand how he made himself a lasting one.

21. Which of the following best describes British novels in the 18th century?

AThey were difficult to understand.

BThey were popular among the rich.

CThey were seen as nearly worthless.

DThey were written mostly by women.

22. Dickens is compared with the Mona Lisa in the text to stress

Ahis reputation in France

Bhis interest in modern art

Chis success in publication

Dhis importance in literature

23. What is the author's purpose in writing the text?

ATo remember a great Wvriter.

BTo introduce an English novel.

CTo encourage studies on culture.

DTo promote values of the Victorian age.

Steven Stein likes to follow garbage trucks.His strange habit makes sense when you consider that he'san environmental scientist who studies howto reduce litter, including things that falloff garbage trucks as they drive down the road.What is even more interesting is that one of Stein's jobs is defending an industry behind the plastic shopping bags.

Americans use more than 100 billionth in film plastic bags every year.So many end up in

tree branches or along highways that a growing number of cities do not allow them at checkouts( 收 银 台 ) .The bags are prohibited in some 90 cities in California, including Los Angeles.Eyeing these headwinds, plastic-bag makers are hiring scientists like Stein to make the case that their products are not as bad for the planet as most people assume.

Among the bag makers'argument:many cities with bans still allow shoppers to purchase paper bags, which are easily recycled but require more energy to produce and transport.And while plastic bags maybe ugly to look at, they representa small percentage of all garbage on the ground today.z.x.xk

The industry has also taken aim at the product that has appeared as its replacement:reusable

shopping bags.The stronger a reusable bag is, the longer its life and the more plastic-bag use it cancels out.However, longer-lasting reusable bags often require more energy to make.One study found that a cotton bagmustbeusedatleast13l times to be better for the planet than plastic.

Environmentalists don't dispute(质疑)these points.They hope paper bags will be banned

someday too and want shoppers to use the same reusable bags for years.

It was summer,and my dad wanted to treat me to a vacation like never before.He decided to take me on a trip to the Wild West.

We took a plane to Albuquerque,a big city in the state of New Mexico.We reached Albuquerque in the late afternoon.Uncle Paul, my dad's friend, picked us up from the airport and drove us up to his farm in Pecos.

His wife Tina cooked usa delicious dinner and we got to know his sons Ryan and Kyle.My dad and I spent the night in the guestroom of the farmhouse listening to the frogs and water rolling down the river nearby.Very early in the morning, Uncle Paul woke us up to have breakfast. "The day starts at dawn on my farm, "he said.After breakfast, I went to help Aunt Tina feed the chickens.while my dad went with Uncle Paul to take the sheep out to graze( 吃 草 ) .I was impressed to see my dad and Uncle Paul riding horses.They looked really cool.

In the afternoon, I asked Uncle Paul if I could take a hose ride, and he said yes, as long as my dad went with me.I was n't going to take a horse ride by myself anyway.So, my dad and I put on our new cowboy hats, got on our horses, and headed slowly towards the mountains."Don't be late for supper, "Uncle Paul cried, "and keep to the track so that you don't get lost!""OK!"my dad cried back.After awhile Uncle Paul and his fam house were out of sight.It was so peaceful and quiet and the colors of the brown rocks, the deep green pine trees, and the late afternoon sun mixed to create a magic scene.It looked like a beautiful woven(编织的) blanket spread out upon the ground just for us.
