  Questions 11—15 are based on the following passage:

  In the Fall 2006, the National Basketball Association (NBA) started using basketballs made with synthetic, or manmade material instead of leather. They made the switch because they wanted every basketball they use to feel and bounce the same.

  However, some players complained right away that the new balls bounced differently and were actually harder to control than leather ones. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban asked for help the Department of Physics at the University of Texas. The scientists investigated friction that affects the ability of a player to hold onto a ball. “ The greater the friction, the better it will stick to his hand,” explains Horwitz, one of the physicists who worked on the project.

  Tests on both wet and dry balls showed that while the plastic ball was easier to grip when dry, it had less friction and became much harder to hold onto when wet. That′s because sweating stays on the surface of the synthetic balls but gets absorbed into the leather balls – an important detail for sweaty athletes.

  In January, the NBA went back to using the traditional leather balls. They aren′t perfect, but for now, that′s just the way the ball bounces. (197 w.)

  A. NBA players had used the leather balls for too long a time

  B. NBA officials wanted a switch with which to start a reform

  C. they emphasized that synthetic materials are manmade

  D. they wanted every basketball to feel and bounce the same

  12. How did some NBA players respond to the switch to synthetic balls?

  A. They felt that the new balls were worse than the leather balls.

  B. They thought differently about the leather balls.

  C. They felt much more comfortable with the synthetic balls.

  D. They believed the new balls would soon be replaced.

  13. Which of the following contributes to the better control of the balls?

  A. Stronger affection.

  B. More ownership.

  C. Greater friction.

  D. Fewer investigations.

  14. When is it harder for an NBA player to hold onto a synthetic ball?

  A. When sweating sticks to the ball.

  B. When the ball is wetted by water.

  C. When tests are done on the ball.

  D. When the ball is dried with a towel.

  15. In the last paragraph, “that′s just the way the ball bounces” probably means _______.

  Questions 16—20 are based on the following passage:

  A mother dolphin (海豚) chats with her baby over the telephone! They were in separate tanks connected by a special underwater audio link. “It seemed clear that they knew who they were talking with,” says Don White, whose Project Delphis ran the experiment. But what were they saying?

  Scientists think dolphins “talk” about everything from basic facts like their age to their emotional state. “I speculate that they say things like ‘there are some good fish over here,′ or ‘watch out for that shark because he′s hunting,′” says Denis Herzing, who studies dolphins in the Bahamas.

  Deciphering (译解) “dolphin speak” is also tricky because their language is so dependent on what they′re doing, whether they′re playing, fighting, or going after tasty fish. During fights, for example, dolphins clap (碰撞) their jaws to say “Back off!” But their jaws clap while playing, too, as if to show who′s king of the underwater playground.

  16. How did the mother dolphin talk with her baby over the telephone?

  A. Two connected tanks were separated for the talk.

  B. A clear voice could be heard in the two separate tanks.

  C. Both the mother dolphin and the baby knew each other.

  D. AS special underwater audio link was sep up for the talk

  17. Dolphins seem to talk to each other about any of the following EXCEPT ______.

  A. their age

  B. audio link

  C. food sources

  D. their emotional state

  18. Why is it challenging to interpret “dolphin speak”?

  A. Because playing and fighting are part of dolphins′ life.

  B. Because dolphins like to talk about their language.

  C. Because dolphins′ language heavily relies on their actions.

  D. Because tasty fish are difficult for dolphins to catch.

  19. A dolphin might be saying “________” when it claps its jaws.

  A. Go back to your home!

  B. I am the king here!

  C. Who is playing here?

  D. Show me who the king is!

  20. When scientists describe dolphins′ communicative skills, their tone is rather ________.

  A. affirmative

  B. negative

  C. playful

  D. speculative

  答案:16. D 17. B 18. C 19. B 20. D

  Questions 21—25 are based on the following passage:

  An American company has started testing a new program aimed at increasing security. Three workers from CityWatcher.com, a company that provides security camera equipment, have volunteered to be electronically monitored. They will have a silicon chip put inside their arms. The tiny device is the size of a grain of rice and will send out radio signals. These will provide information to a central monitoring system that will give the workers access to secure areas of the workplace. The chips were originally designed for medical purposes.

  Sean Darks, CEO of CityWatcher, said the chips were like identity cards. He said the only difference is that they are inserted inside the person′s body. He added they are very different from Global Positioning Satellite technology, which allows people′s location to be monitored. Mr. Darks insisted that they were not dangerous and even decided to have a chip implanted in his own body. However, many people are worried about the issue of privacy. Many believe the technology could be abused and that new laws will have to be made. Mr. Darks said his workers always choose to have the chips removed.
