When I come across a good article in reading newspapers, I often want to cut and keep it. But just as I am about to do so I find the article on the 36 side is as much interesting. It may be a discussion of the way to 37 in good health, or 38 about how to behave and conduct(引导) oneself in society. If I cut the front article, the opposite one is likely to 39 damage, leaving out half of it or keeping the text 40 the title. Therefore, the scissors (剪刀) would 41 before they start, 42 halfway done when I find out the 43 result.
Sometimes two things are to be done at the same time, both worth your 44 . You can only take up one of them, the other has to wait or be 45 up. But you know the future is unpredictable (不可预料)- the changed situation may not allow you to do what is left 46. Thus you are 47 in a difficult position and feel sad. How 48 that nice chances and intelligent ideas should gather around all at once? It may happen that your life 49 greatly on your preference of one choice to the other.
In fact that is what 50 is like: we are often 51 with the two opposite sides of a thing which are both pleasing like a newspaper cutting. It often happens that our attention is drawn to one thing only 52 we get into another. The 53 may be more important than the latter and give rise to a divided mind. I 54 remember a philosopher's remarks: "When one door shuts, another opens in life." So a casual (不经意) 55 may not be a bad one.

A year ago, I paid no attention to English idioms, though my teacher emphasized(强调) the importance again and again. But soon, the importance of English idioms was shown in an amusing experience.
One day, I happened to meet an Englishman on the road, and soon we began to talk. As I was talking about how I was studying English, the foreigner seemed to be astonished. Gently shaking his head and shrugging his shoulders, he said, “You don’t say!” “You don’t say!” I was puzzled. I thought, perhaps this is not a proper topic. “Well, I’d better change the topic.” So I said to him, “Well, shall we talk about the Great Wall? By the way, have you ever been there?” “Certainly, everyone back home will laugh at me if I leave China without seeing it. It was wonderful.” He was deep in thought when I began to talk like a tourist guide. “The Great Wall is one of the wonders in the world. We are very proud of it”. Soon I was interrupted again by his words：“You don’t say!” I couldn’t help asking, “Why do you ask me not to talk about it?” “Well, I didn’t request you to do so,” he answered, greatly surprised. I said, “Didn’t you say ‘you don’t say’?” Hearing this, the Englishman laughed to tears. He began to explain, “‘You don’t say’ actually means ‘really?’ It is an expression of surprise. Perhaps you don’t pay attention to English idioms.” Only then did I know I had made a fool of myself. Since then I have been more careful with idiomatic expressions.
Remember: what the English teachers said is always right to us students.

Plants seem to know which way is up and which way is down. Further more, they seem to know right from left. If a cutting from a Lombardy poplar (白杨树) is kept alive, new shoots will grow from the end that grew upper most in the tree.
There is no visible difference between the top and the bottom of the living stick, even under a microscope. Even so, the stick will not send out shoots from the end it views as bottom even if this end happens to be on top!
Scientists studying this subject further split their cuttings lengthwise. To their surprise, they made another interesting discovery. A good many more buds (芽) grew on the right-hand side of the split surface than on the left. They split the sticks again and found that the buds again grew on the right side.
The results of the entire study showed a 60-40 preference（偏爱）for the right side, proving that growing plants are basically “right- handed”.

B. one end slightly darker than the other
C. no difference between them
D. a difference that only the microscope reveals (展现)

The most frightening words in the English language are, “Our computer is down.” You hear it more and more when you are on business. The other day I was at the airport waiting for a ticket to Washington and the girl in the ticket office said, “I’m sorry, I can’t sell you a ticket. Our computer is down.”
“If your computer is down, just write me out a ticket.”
“I can’t write you out a ticket. The computer is the only one allowed to do so.”
I looked down on the computer and every passenger was just standing there drinking coffee and staring at the black screen. Then I asked her, “What do all you people do?”
“We give the computer the information about your trip, and then it tells us whether you can fly with us or not.”
“So when it goes down, you go down with it.”
“That’s good, sir.”
“How long will the computer be down?” I wanted to know.
“I have no idea. Sometimes it’s down for 10 minutes, sometimes for two hours. There’s no way we can find out without asking the computer, and since it’s down it won’t answer us.”
After the girl told me they had no backup(备用)computer, I said. “Let’s forget the computer. What about your planes? They’re still flying, aren’t they?”
“I couldn’t tell without asking the computer.”
“Maybe I could just go to the gate and ask the pilot if he’s flying to Washington, ” I suggested.
“I wouldn’t know what gate to send you to. Even if the pilot was going to Washington, he couldn’t take you if you didn’t have a ticket.”
“Is there any other airline flying to Washington within the next few hours?”
“I wouldn’t know,” she said, pointing at the dark screen. “Only ‘IT’ knows. ‘It’ can’t tell me.”
By this time there were quite a few people standing in lines. The word soon spread to other travelers that the computer was down. Some people went white, some people started to cry and still others kicked their baggage.
64. The best title for the article is _______.
A. When the Computer Is Down B. The Most Frightening Words
C. The Computer of the Airport D. Asking the Computer
65. What could the girl in the ticket office do for the passengers without asking the computer?
A. She could sell a ticket. B. She could write out a ticket.
C. She could answer the passengers’ questions. D. She could do nothing.
66. According to this passage, how long would the computer be down?
A. For ten minutes. B. For an hour.
C. It would be down for two hours. D. It wasn’t clear.
67. Why do you think they had not a backup computer?

May I have your attention, please? The weather report says a hurricane is likely to land our city at about 24:00 on 20th October 2003. It’s said the hurricane this time will move across our city with winds up to 180 kph and last two hours or so. It will be the worst hurricane in history. Maybe, the wind will blow over some trees.

We’ll try our every effort to fight against it. We’ll do our best to let us have the lowest loss in this disaster.
