A woman is swimming at night in a dark sea. Suddenly, she is pulled underwater. She surfaces, cries in terror, then disappears forever. This is the opening scene from the 1975 film Jaws. This film was a great hit, but it made things worse.
Jaws made people frightened of sharks, especially of the great white shark. Some stopped swimming in the sea, afraid of the horrible creature from the film. Others started fishing for sharks, killing as many as they could. At that time, nobody cared if sharks were killed, or how many were killed. People just wanted them killed.
After 1975,the number of large sharks fell quickly around the world.This was not only due to fear of sharks, but also finning, a type of fishing where sharks are caught and their fins cut off. Unexpectedly, finning would have a powerful effect upon Peter Benchley, who wrote the book the film Jaws was based on.
One day in 1980,Benchley was diving when he came across an awful sight.He saw fishermen finning and sharks being killed,which caused a deep change in him.From then on, he saw people as a danger to sharks,rather than the other way round.Also,he admitted that his book was wrong about sharks' behavior."Sharks don't target(以…为目标）humans,"he said.Experts have proved that sharks do not see people as food, and they attack us by mistake. Only around six people are killed by sharks every year.
Today,as we learn more about sharks,more people than ever want to protect them from extinction.
1. The film Jaws led to

A. It woke him up to his false idea of sharks.
B. It inspired him to do research about sharks.
C. It drove him to learn how to protect sharks.
D. It encouraged him not to be afraid of sharks.
3. What is the best title for the text?

B. Jaws:the Hottest Shark Movie Ever
C. Shark Attacks:Not a Problem Anymore
D. Humans:the Favourite Target of Sharks
Last year,hundreds of people spent good money on an experience that they knew would include crowds,discomfort and danger.Many would become sick,due to the extreme cold and low air pressure,and a few would even lose their lives.However,by the end of the trip many were already planning a return to Qomolangma.For these people,climbing Qomolangma is an experience like no other,making some feel weak and others,powerful.
Mallory wrote of climbing Qomolangma,"What we get from this British climber George adventure is pure joy...We do not live to eat and make money.We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life.That is what life means."He added."There are a thousand reasons to turn going.You really have to focus on the one reason that matters around and only one to keep the most."
With most attempts(尝试）to climb Qomolangma resulting either in total success or failure,is there also a scientific reason behind this risk-taking?Recent studies indicate that risk-taking may be part of human nature,with some of us more likely to take risks than others. Psychologist Frank Farley has spent years studying people who jump out of planes and drive fast cars,as well as those who climb Qomolangma.He refers to the personalities of these people as"Type T",with the"T"standing for“thrill(激动）”Speaking to the LA Times about the"Type T”personalities,Farley said,"They'll say,'I'm not taking risks,I'm an expert...' They don't want to die and they don't expect to die."
With this in mind,is climbing Qomolangma worth the risks?It's totally up to you.
4. Why did many Qomolangma climbers decide to try again?
A. They didn't make it in early attempts.
B. They hoped to stay away from crowds.
C. They wanted to take unique adventures.
D. They couldn't live a life without climbing.
5. What can be inferred from George Mallory's words in Paragraph 2?
A. People care much about eating and making money.
B. It's hard to find a reason for climbing Qomolangma.
C. Nothing but joy can be felt in climbing Qomolangma.
D. Climbing Qomolangma is a journey of gaining life pleasure.
6. According to Frank Farley,which of the following best describes"Type T”people?
I thought I knew a lot about Hamlet.As an English literature major,I have to!Having seen quite a few productions of Hamlet and read the play many times,I was full of confidence-until Peking Opera came to town!
Peking Opera has over two hundred years of history,so does this mean it's easier than a Shakespeare play to understand?To find out the answer,I just had to go and see The Revenge of Prince Zidan- the Peking Opera version(版本）of Hamlet.
The opera brought a completely new sound to my Western ears.At first,I thought it was a violin.but later I learnt that it was a traditional Chinese instrument called jinghu.Then. seeing the characters in fantastic costumes and masks,I was amazed!They of course sang in Chinese,but the music and exaggerated movements helped get the meanings across to the audience.The voices sounded really unique-some of the female voices were so high that I was sure they could break glass!
Easily my favourite part of the show was how the characters moved on stage.I had never seen Prince Hamlet do a backflip(后空翻）before!It was so dazzling and energetic that I wasn't sure if the characters were performers or athletes!
Before experiencing The Revenge of Prince Zidan,I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it.But, in fact,I was on the edge of my seat!Feeling the strong emotions of love,anger,fear and grief in the performance,I could easily recognize the theme of Hamlet.So,if you want to see a show that combines music,singing,drama,poetry and costume design with explosive effect, The Revenge of Prince Zidan ticks all the right boxes!
7. Why did the author go to see The Revenge of Prince Zidan?
A. To have a full understanding of Hamlet.
B. To know about Shakespeare and his works.
C. To prove Peking Opera is a better way to perform Hamlet.
D. To see if Peking Opera is more understandable than English plays.
8. Which part of the opera attracted the author most?
A. The music effect.
B. The costume design.
C. The performers'movements.
D. The Chinese instrument jinghu.
9. What does the underlined"I was on the edge of my seat!"in Paragraph 5 suggest?
A. I became tired of the show.
B. I missed the best of the show.
C. I was held spellbound by the show.
D. I was to leave halfway through the show.
10. How did the the author feel about the Peking Opera version of Hamlet?
A. It's puzzling.
B. It's impressive.
C. It's humorous.
D. It's disappointing.

Sometimes I bring home food from the restaurant where I work. Once a week we do a big shop and buy a lot of frozen food. I know we should eat more fresh fruit and vegetables..._____14_____
