the 1960s，while studyg the voic history of Yellowstone National Park，Bob Christs e puzzled about sometg that，oddly，had not troubled yone before：he cou't d the park's voo. It had own for a long te that Yellowstone was voic nature - that's what accounted for all its hot sprgs d other sty features. But Christs cou't d the Yellowstone voo ywhere.
Most of us， we talk about vooes，tk of the classic cone（圓錐體）shapes of a Fuji or jaro，which are created eruptg a（巖漿）piles up. These form rarkably quickly. 1943，a Mex farmer was surprised to see smoke risg from a small part of his d. one week he was the confused owner of a cone five hundred feet high. Wit two years it had topped out at ost fourt hundred feet d was more t half a mile across. Altogether there are some t thousd of these vooes on Earth，all but a few hundred of t extct. There is，however，a second les own type of voo that doesn't volve mount bug. These are vooes so explosive that they burst op a sgle big crack，leavg d a vast hole，the caldera. Yellowstone obviously was of this second type，but Christs cou't d the caldera ywhere.
Just at this te NASA decided to test some new high-altitude eras by tg photographs of Yellowstone. A thoughtful official passed on some of the copies to the park authorities on the assumption that they might make a nice blow-up for one of the visitors' ters. As soon as Christs saw the photos，he realized why he had failed to spot the caldera; ost the whole park-2.2 million acres-was caldera. The explosion had left a hole more t forty miles acrossuch too huge to be s from ywhere at ground level. At some te the past Yellowstone must have blown up with a vioce far beyond the scale of ytg own to hus.
58. What puzzled Christs he was studyg Yellowstone？
A. Its complicated geographical features.
B. Its ever-lastg fluce on tourism.
C. The mysterious history of the park.
D. The exact location of the voo.
59. What does the second-paragraph ly talk about？
A. The shapes of vooes.
B. The pacts of vooes.
C. The activities of vooes.
D. The heights of vooes.
60. What does the undered word "blow-up" the last paragraph most probably ？
A. Hot-air balloon. B. Digital era.
C. Big photograph. D. Bird's view.
Who cares if people tk wrongly that the ternet has had more portt fluces t the wasg e? Why does it matter that people are more pressed by the most rt ges?
It would not matter if these misjuts were just a matter of people's opions. However, they have real pacts, as they result misguided use of scarce resources.
The fasation with the ICT(formation d Counication Tology) revolution, represted by the ternet, has made some rich countries wrongly conclude that g tgs is so "yesterday" that they should try to live on ideas. This belief "postdustrial society" has led those countries to neglect their ufacturg sector(制造業) with negative consequces for their economies.
Ev more worrygly, the fasation with the ternet by people rich countries has moved the ternational counity to worry about the "digital divide" bet the rich countries d the poor countries. This has led compies d dividuals to donate money to developg countries to buy computer equipt d ternet facilities. The question, however, is whether this is what the developg countries need the most. Perhaps givg money for those less fashionable tgs such as g wells, extg electricity networks d g more affordable wasg es would have proved people's lives more t givg every child a laptop computer or settg up ternet tres rural villages, I not sayg that those tgs are necessarily more portt, but y donators have rushed to cy progrmes without carefully assessg the relative long-term costs d efits of alternative uses of their money.
yet other exple, a fasation with the new has led people to believe that the rt ges the tologies of counications d trsportation are so revolutionary that now we live a "borderless world". As a result, the last tty years or so, y people have come to believe that whatever ge is happg today is the result of great tological progress, gog st which will be like tryg to turn the clock back. Believg such a world, y governts have put d to some of the very necessary regulations on cross-border flows of capital, labour d goods, with poor results.
Understg tological trds is very portt for correctly desg economic policies, both at the national d the ternational levels, d for g the right career choices at the dividual level. However, our fasation with the latest, d our under valuation of what has already become coon, , d has, led us all sorts of wrong directions.
61. Misjuts on the fluces of new tology lead to __________.
A. a lack of conce tology
B a slow progress tology
C. a conflict of public opions
D. a waste of ited resources
62. The exple Paragraph 4 suggests that donators should __________.
A. take people's esstial needs to account
B. make their progrmes attractive to people
C. sure that each child gets cial support
D provide more affordable ternet facilities
63. What has led y governts to rove necessary regulations?
A. Neglectg the pacts of tological advces.
B. Believg that the world has become borderless.
C. org the power of economic developt.
D. Overphasizg the role of ternational counication.
64. What we learn from the passage?
A. People should be couraged to make more donations.
B. Traditional tology still has a place nowadays.
C. g right career choices is crucial to personal success.

The Cost of Tg
Despite their y differces, all hu gs share several g characteristics. such as large brs d the ability to walk upright on two legs.
The first unique hu characteristic is that hus have extraorarily large brs compared with other als. It ss obvious that evolution should select for larger brs. mals（哺乳動物）g sixty kilogrs have average br size of 200 2. Modern has a br averg 1200-1400 2. We are so fond of our high tce that we assume that it comes to br power, more must be better. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
The fact is that a huge br is a huge dr-consumption of ergy-on the body. I's not easy to carry around, especially boxed side a massive skull（傾骨）. It's ev harder to provides ergy. modern , the br accounts for about 2-3%of total body weight but it consumes 25% of the body's ergy the body is at rest. By comparison, the brs of apes(類人猿）require only 8%of rest-te ergy. Early hus pad for their large brs two ways. Firstly, they spt more te search food. Secondly, their muscles grew smaller d weaker. It's hardly obvious conclusion that this is a good way to survive. A pzee(黑猩猩) 't argut with a modern , but it tear the apart like a rag doll.
other unique hu characteristic is that we walk upright. Stg up, it's easier to d food or ies. addition, their arms that are unnecessary for movg around are freed for other purposes, like throg stones or sg. As a result, hus perform very complex tasks with their ds.
Yet g upright has its disadvtage. The bone structure of our cestors developed for millions of years to support a creature that walked on all fours d has a relatively small head. Adjustg to upright position was quite a ge, especially the bones had to support extra-large skull. Hud paid for its broad vision d skillful ds backaches d pful necks.
We assume that a large br makes huge advtages. It ss obvious that these have made hud the most powerful al on earth. But hus joyed all of these advtages for a full 2 million years durg which they red weak d maral creature. Thus hus who lived a million years ago, despite their big brs d sharp stone tools, lived constt fear of meat-eatg als.
The Cost of Tg
? Large brs for their bodies d the ability to walk upright are two (71)_________ of hu gs.
The (72)_________ of large hu brs
? The larger brs may not be better because of the cost.
? The big brs make it harder for the body to move around d consume more ergy.

81. Possible version one:
Li g d Su Hua are discussg what to wear receivg the British stuts next month. Li recods the traditional ese dress while Su prefers the school uniform.
I would be happy to wear traditional ese clothes at the welcome cerony. Firstly, this is precisely what the British visitors are expectg. They come to learn about ese culture with their own eyes. Their ese peers the typical ese dress would be highly pressive. The school uniforms are e, but not special ough to give a unique ese flavour. Secondly, the convce is not a pro if our purpose is to share ese culture. It is just the so-called convce that displays the ress, delicacy d great fasation of ese culture with a history of thousds of years.
The traditional ese clothes, it ss to me, will make the occasion very ese d vitg to the British guests.
Possible version two:
Li g d Su Hua don't agree on what to wear greetg the British stuts. Li suggests traditional ese clothes while Su tks the school uniforms are more suitable.
I prefer the school uniform to the traditional ese dress at the welcome cerony next month. Although the traditional ese dress may look more beautiful d stylish, it is a little bit strge to walk around it. We feel at ease our school uniforms every day. What's more, the traditional ese dress 't reflect the unique culture of our school. From the des d colour of our uniforms, the British frds will learn more about our school. Besides, the choice of the traditional ese dress s extra money, d extra te, for we have to ge it back after the evt.
So the school uniforms are a better choice t the traditional ese dress for such occasion.
