阅读下面短文,从短文后各题所给的四个选项(ABCD)中,选出可以填入空白处的最佳选项黑。

People fail to realize the importance of training some personal characteristics in young people, despite of their important roles in the development of one’s intelligence.

The so-called ‘non-intelligence factors’非智力因素include    36     feelings , will and etc. After a 30-year follow-up study of 8000 males , American psychologists 心理学   37     that the main cause of differences in intelligence is not intelligence     38    , but non-intelligence factors including the desire to learn , will power and self-confidence .

    39   people all know that one should have a strong will and good learning habits , quite a number of teachers and parents don’t pay much ___40___ to cultivate(培养) these factors

Some parents are greatly worried    41     their children fail to do well in their studies . They blame either genetic 遗传的factors or laziness , but they never take     42    consideration these non-intelligence factors . At the same time , some teachers don’t inquire into reasons    43    students do poorly . They simply give them more courses and exercises , or     44   criticize or laugh at them .As a result, some of them just feel defeated and     45   themselves up as hopeless .   46     investigation of more than 1,000 students in Shanghai showed that 11.5 per cent of them were   47      of learning , because of examinations , 1.4 per cent lacked initiative 主动and 10.3 per cent were sick of learning .

It is clear    48    the lack of cultivation of non-intelligence factors has been a main     49   to intelligence development in teenagers . It even causes an imbalance between physiological 生理的and    50    development among a few students .

If we don’t start now to   51      the cultivation of non-intelligence factors , it will affect the development of the   52     of teenagers as well as the quality of a whole generation . Some experts have put forward    53    about how to cultivate students’ non-intelligence factors .

First , parents and teachers should    54    understand teenage psychology, which can help them     55  their interests and toughe their willpower .

The Environmental Film Festival in Washington, D.C. has been bringing movies to America’s capital for seventeen years. This year, the twelve-day festival showed more than one hundred and thirty movies from thirty-four countries.

The movies were shown in fifty-two museums, embassies, and other places around the city this month. Many movies were about the state of the world’s oceans and sea life. (The aim of the festival is to educate people about environmental issues affecting our planet.)

The Museum of Natural History showed many other movies about the ocean. These included “Fisheye Fantasea”, which explores how fish see in the ocean. “Cracking the Ocean Code” is about the work of scientist J. Craig Venter. In the movie he travels around the world documenting the genetic information of small sea creatures.

At the Library of Congress, festival visitors could watch “The Silent World” directed by Jacques Cousteau and Louis Malle. When this movie came out in nineteen fifty-six, it was the first to show scuba diving exploration to the world. The movie takes place during a trip across the Mediterranean, Red Sea and Indian Ocean.

The Environmental Film Festival in Washington was started by Flo Stone. “I founded the festival in nineteen ninety-three. I’d worked on other film festivals, one on cultural diversity at the Natural History Museum in New York City. But in Washington, I thought it would be wonderful to do a festival on the environment very broadly, cooperating with many museums, universities, libraries, environmental organizations and even embassies from around the world.” Flo Stone said.

Not all movies at the festival were about oceans. One movie shown at the National Building Museum is called “Designing a Great Neighborhood: Behind the Scenes at Holiday”. It tells about building a community housing project in Boulder, Colorado. The future owners of the houses work together with different building designers to create environmentally safe houses that do not pollute.

65. Which film shows scuba diving exploration to the world?

A. “Fisheye Fantasea”

B. “Cracking the Ocean Code”

C. “The Silent World”

D. “Designing a Great Neighborhood: Behind the Scenes at Holiday.”

66. The aim of the Environmental Film Festival is to

A. ask people to pay attention to sea creatures

B. let people know how environmental issues affect the earth

C. advise people on how to save energy

D. tell people how to create environmentally safe houses

67. J. Craig Venter was a scientist who

A. explored how fish see in the ocean

B. recorded the genetic information of small sea creatures

C. made a trip across the Mediterranean, Red Sea and Indian Ocean

D. was engaged in stopping pollution

68. The above passage is probably taken from       .

A. a textbook    B. a sci-fiction    C. a news report    D. a TV talk show

D

Of all the problems facing modern astronomers, perhaps the most fascinating is: “Can intelligent(有智能的) life exist elsewhere?” Since the Earth is an unimportant planet moving round an unimportant star, it would be a pride on our part to suppose that we are the only intelligent beings in the universe. But to obtain proof is difficult.

The main trouble is that our neighbor worlds, the bodies in the solar system appear to be unsuitable for advanced life forms. The Moon may be ruled out at once; it has hardly any atmosphere. Venus金星 is little better; the surface temperature is extremely high and the atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide. Mars火星 with a very thin atmosphere and a severe shortage of water, may well support simple plant life but there seems no hope of finding animals, while the attractive Martians of the story – tellers have long since been given up.

Of course this has not stopped the flow of bright ideas for communicating with the supposed people on Mars. In the early nineteenth century the great mathematician Gauss suggested planting tree – patterns in Siberia, so that the Martians would see them and replay suitably. Following up this idea, the Austrian scientist Karl Littrow proposed digging very wide ditches in the Sahara, triangular in patterns, and then filling them with petrol or some substance so that, when lit, the ditches would present Martian observers with a “flaming triangle” which would show the existence here of intelligent minds. Even better were the plans of Charles Cross, a French writer of the 1870’s, who wanted to build a large mirror to reflect the sun’s rays and concentrate them on the surface of Mars, thereby making a vast burning – glass. By swinging the mirror around, Cross explained it would be practicable to write words in the Martian deserts simply by burning the sand. For many years he bombarded (鼓吹) the French government with literature about this plan and was very disappointed when no official interest was shown.

69From the passage we can learn that the opinion of the writer is that       .

       Apeople on the earth are almost certainly the only intelligent beings in the universe

       Bpeople on the earth are definitely the only intelligent beings in the universe

       Cthere may be other intelligent beings in the universe

       Dthere are other intelligent beings in the universe

70Why is there unlikely any life on Venus?

       ABecause the weather is too cold.

       BBecause it is severely short of water.

       CBecause it has a very thin atmosphere.

       DBecause the surface temperature is too hot.

71According to the passage, it seems that Mars        .

       Amay have both vegetable and animal life

       Bmay be inhabited by attractive Martians

       Cmay have some vegetable life[

       Dcan have no life at all

72It can be learned from the last paragraph that Charles Cross felt          .

       Adisappointed at the lack of official interest shown in his plan

       Bsurprised that the officials were interested in his suggestion

       Cangry when the government paid little attention to his ideas

       Dpleased when the government did take notice of his plan

E

Your beliefs are very powerful and have the power to create or to destroy your life. In most cases, whatever you believe is what you will become. If you believe that you are a loser, that you never get a break in life, that you can’ t accomplish anything, these.things will be your reality. Believe that you are unlimited, that you can do anything you are determined to do, and when you do, your achievements will know no bounds. You control your beliefs, and that is how you unlimitedly control your life.

This is a very important point. So how do you develop beliefs that will enable you?

    Many of our beliefs come from our environment, the world we live in on a daily basis. If your environment is limiting your beliefs, then work very hard on changing it. If you are constantly around people who are negative and limiting, find other people to hang out with. Get around positive, successful people.

    Beliefs also come from past experiences. That is why it is so important to experience success on a regular basis. Set small, achievable goals, and then try your best to reach them. "I will finish this project by early afternoon. " "I will make six calls on the phone in the next hour. " "I will exercise for 20 minutes tonight." When you start to experience success, then you start to believe in success, and that leads to more and bigger success.

Beliefs come from knowledge. The more you learn, the more things you will know to be possible. Always take advantage of opportunities to learn something new. It will bring new possibilities into your beliefs and your life. Most importantly, you can develop new beliefs by setting and imagining goals for your life. Define your goals clearly and accurately. Then, in your mind, see yourself achieving them in all of their sensible details. Mentally live the experience, see the sights, hear the sounds, feel the feelings. Your brought-up beliefs will lead you to their reality.

73. What does the author want to tell the reader in the 1st paragraph?

   A. The importance of having beliefs in oneself.

   B. Positive beliefs in oneself does one good in his life.

   C. Negative beliefs in yourself surely will destroy you.

   D. Do whatever you want to in your life.

74. Which of the following is true according to the passage?

   A. It is important to experience all kinds of success and failures.

   B. When you learn more, you find there’s so much for you to learn.

   C. Beliefs can be build up little by little.

   D. Beliefs will tum into realities if you have them in mind.

75. What’s the best title for the passage?

   A. Turn your beliefs into realiry    B. Hard-working and success

   C. Ways to success              D. Beliefs

  First of all, in my opinion, it’s important for us to study hard every day and make careful plans for every exam. In this way we can avoid suffering from the pressure of exams.

Besides, enough sleep can make us energetic and enable us to perform well in an exam. Therefore, during the period of exams, we should not stay up too late. We can also try a warm bath or a cup of warm milk before going to bed. They might help us to have a sound sleep.

  (We’d better go out for a walk or do some outdoor exercises before an exam so that we can keep ourselves relaxed and then concentrate ourselves on exams.)
