Giving Back Fair Way
The Westborough High School golf team had taken the official photos with the state prize. The other teams, disappointed, were on the bus heading home. And then Westborough instructor Greg Rota noticed something wrong on one of the score cards. A 9 had been recorded as a 7. They were not the state prize winner; Woburn High had won. "No one would have known," said Woburn’s instructor, Bob Doran. For Rota, it wasn’t a difficult decision: "The prize wasn’t ours to take." 
Coin Stars
"College students are lazy, but they also want to help," says University of Pennsylvania graduate Dana Hork. So she made it easy, placing cups in rooms where students could leave their spare coins, and handing out cups to first-year students to keep in their rooms. Her " Change for Change" effort has collected $40,000 for charities (慈善机构), which were decided upon by students.

When someone has deeply hurt you, it can be extremely difficult to let go of your anger. But forgiveness is possible - and it can be surprisingly helpful to your physical and mental health. Indeed, research has shown that people who forgive report more energy, better appetite (胃口) and better sleep patterns. "People who forgive show less anger and more hopefulness," says Dr. Frederic Luskin, who wrote the book Forgive for Good. " So it can help save on the wear and tear on .our system and allow people to feel more energetic." 
  So when someone has hurt you, calm yourself first. Take a couple of breaths and think of something that gives you pleasure: a beautiful scene in nature, someone you love. Don’t wait for an apology. "Many times the person who hurt you may never think of apologizing," says Dr. Luskin. "They may have wanted to hurt you or they just don’t see things the same way. So if you wait for people to apologize, you could be waiting a very long time. " Keep in mind that forgiveness does not necessarily mean accepting the action of the person who upset you. Mentally going over your hurt gives power to the person who brought you pain. Instead, learn to look for the love, beauty and kindness around you. Finally, try to see things from the other person’s perspective (视角). You may realize that he or she was acting out of ignorance (无知), fear——even love. To gain perspective, you may want to write a letter to yourself from that person’s point of view.

【題組】65、The text is mainly written to explain ____.
(A) how to keep yourself from being hurt
(B) how to stay mentally healthy
(C) how and when to remain calm
(D) why and how to pardon others
11.【題組】66、According to the writer, what is the right way to calm down after being hurt?
(A) Try to figure out why you get hurt.
(B) Write a letter to the person who hurt you.
(C) Persuade yourself to accept what others have done to you.
(D) Think about pleasant things and forget about the hurt.
12.【題組】67、Dr. Luskin advises us not to wait for an apology after being hurt because _____.
(A) we are not patient enough
(B) we’d feel worse accepting others’ apology
(C) people seldom want to apologize
(D) people don’t mean it when they apologize

Before a new type of airplane goes into service, every part of it is tested again and again. But there are two tests that are more important than all the others. 
The first is called the " tank test". A modem airplane must fly very high in the sky. Air must be pumped into the plane so that the passengers can breathe. The metal structure (结构)of the plane has to be very strong for this reason. When the plane is filled with air, the air presses against the skin of the plane inside. The pressure (压力) on a small window is like a huge foot that is trying to get out. If a small part of the plane were to fail, the plane would explode in the sky. To test the structure of the plane, the plane is lowered into a huge tank or container of water. Then it is filled with air. The pressure inside the plane is greater than it ever will be when it is high up in the air. Finally, there is an explosion. This does not cause so much damage inside the water tank as it would anywhere else. Engineers can discover which part of the plane has broken. Then that part is made stronger. 
The most dangerous test happens when the new plane is going through test flights in the air. The test pilot must find out exactly what happens when the engines (发动机) are all shut off at once. The plane begins to fall like a stone. It is the pilot’s job to find out how he can get control of the plane again. These two tests are examples of how planes are made safe before they ever carry passengers.

【題組】68、By doing the "tank test", the engineers can find out ____.
(A) the amount of air in the plane
(B) the strength of the plane structure
(C) the. pressure inside and outside the plane
(D) the power of the airplane engines
14.【題組】69、What will happen to the plane under the "tank test"?
(A) It will be broken.
(B) It will be made stronger.
(C) It will be filled with water.
(D) It will be tested by pilots
15.【題組】70、According to the text, why are test flights most dangerous?
(A) The plane may explode in the air.
(B) The pilot may lose control of the plane.
(C) The engines may be damaged.
(D) Too much air may get into the plane.
16.【題組】71、What might be the most suitable title for the text?
(A) Two Important Tests on Airplanes
(B) The Importance of Flying Safely
(C) The Danger of Testing Airplanes
(D) How Airplanes Are Made and Tested

If you are a recent social science graduate who has had to listen to jokes about unemployment from your computer major classmates, you may have had the last laugh. There are many advantages for the social science major because this high-tech "Information Age" demands people who are flexible (灵活的) and who have good communication skills. 
There are many social science majors in large companies who fill important positions. For example, a number of research studies found that social science majors had achieved greater managerial success than those who had technical training or pre-professional courses. Studies show that social science majors are most suited for change, which is the leading feature (特点) of the kind of high speed, high-pressure, high-tech world we now live in. 
Social science majors are not only experiencing success in their long-term company jobs, but they are also finding jobs more easily. A study showed that many companies had filled a large percentage of their entry-level positions with social science graduates. The study also showed that the most sought-after quality in a person who was looking for a job was communication skills, noted as "very important" by 92 percent of the companies. Social science majors have these skills, often without knowing how important they are. It is probably due to these skills that they have been offered a wide variety of positions. 
Finally, although some social science majors may still find it more difficult than their technically trained classmates to land the first job, recent graduates report that they don’t regret their choice of study.

【題組】72、By saying that "you may have had the last laugh" in the first paragraph, the author means that you may have ____
(A) shared the jokes with computer majors

19.【題組】74、The underlined word "land" in the last paragraph probably means ____
