Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.

Oceanography has been defined as “The application of all sciences to the study of the sea”.

Before the nineteen century, scientists with an interest in the sea were few and far between. Certainly Newton considered some theoretical aspects of it in his writings, but he was reluctant to go to sea to further his work.

For most people the sea was remote, and with the exception of early intercontinental travelers or others who earned a living from the sea, there was little reason to ask many questions about it, let alone to ask what lay beneath the surface. The first time that question “What is at the bottom of the oceans?” had to be answered with any commercial consequence was when the laying of a telegraph cable from Europe to America was proposed. The engineers had to know the depth profile (起伏形状) of the route to estimate the length of cable that had to be manufactured.

It was to Maury of the US Navy that the Atlantic Telegraph Company turned, in 1853, for information on this matter. In the 1840s, Maury had been responsible for encouraging voyages during which soundings (测声) were taken to investigate the depths of the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Later, some of his findings aroused much popular interest in his book The Physical Geography of the Sea.

The cable was laid, but not until 1866 was the connection made permanent and reliable. At the early attempts, the cable failed and when it was taken out for repairs it was found to be covered in living growths, a fact which defied contemporary scientific opinion that there was no life in the deeper parts of the sea.

Within a few years oceanography was under way. In 1872 Thomson led a scientific expedition (考察), which lasted for four years and brought home thousands of samples from the sea. Their classification and analysis occupied scientists for years and led to a five-volume report, the last volume being published in 1895.

21.   The proposal to lay a telegraph cable from Europe to America made oceanographic studies take on ________.

A) an academic aspect

B) a military aspect

C) a business aspect

D) an international aspectC

22.   It was ________ that asked Maury for help in oceanographic studies.

A) the American Navy

B) some early intercontinental travelers

C) those who earned a living from the sea

D) the company which proposed to lay an undersea cableD

23.   The aim of the voyages Maury was responsible for in the 1840s was ________.

A) to make some sounding experiments in the oceans

B) to collect samples of sea plants and animals

C) to estimate the length of cable that was needed

D) to measure the depths of the two oceansD

24.   “Defied” in the 5th paragraph probably means “________”.

A) doubted

B) gave proof to

C) challenged

D) agreed toC

25.   This passage is mainly about ________.

A) the beginnings of oceanography

B) the laying of the first undersea cable

C) the investigation of ocean depths

D) the early intercontinental communications

 

  The drawing shows a man who deposits a small amount of money into the bank and that turns out to be some fortune when he takes away the money later. One might think it is a bank advertisement, but in fact, as the subtitle suggests, it is a promotion that encourages all people to form the habit of exercising.

  The artist uses this unique metaphor in order to endow us with the concept that, to _______[habit] exercises_______[be]  like to deposit money bit by bit in the bank. If we manage to exercise every day for a considerable period of time, the habit would contribute invaluably to our health. I firmly believe that exercise should become a life-long pursuit, part and parcel of our life. In this way, not only will our longevity be greatly _______[length], the improvement and maintenance of health could also lead to a happier life.

  At the eve of China’s hosting the 2008 Olympic Games, I think it is high time to launch a campaign spurring every citizen to exercise. Though being difficult at the beginning, we should be aware that exercise is a long-term investment that might benefit us even more than our _______[anticipate].

 

 

译文:

   这幅图刻画了一个男人把一笔钱存入银行,以后当他取出这笔钱的时候已经是一笔不小的财富了。我们可能会以为这是一个银行的广告,但是实际上题目暗示了这是在鼓励人们养成锻炼身体的好习惯。

    通过这个独特的比喻,作画者意在让我们接受这样的一个概念,即锻炼身体的习惯就像往银行中一点点地存钱。如果我们坚持在一段时间里每天锻炼,这个习惯对于我们健康的贡献将是无价的。而且我坚信锻炼是一项一生都应该坚持的事情,是我们生活的一个重要组成部分。这不仅能够延长人们的寿命,而且健康的改进和保持会给人们带来一个更加幸福快乐的生活。

    因此,在北京举办2008年奥运会的前夕,我认为这是一个非常好的时机发起全民健身的热潮。尽管坚持这个习惯在一开始比较困难,但是我们应该相信锻炼是一种一生的投资,我们可能得到比我们预期更多的收获。
