Read the two passages and answer the questions.(20 points)
Passage 1
Britain almost more than any other country in the world must seriously face the problem of building upwards,that is to say of accommodating a considerable proportion of its population in high blocks of flats.It is said that the Englishman objects to this type of existence,but if the case is such, he does in fact differ from the inhabitants of most countries of the world today.In the past our own blocks of flats have been associated with the lower-income groups and they have lacked the obvious provisions,such as central heating,constant hot water supply, electrically operated lifts from top to bottom,as well as such details,important notwithstanding(然而),as easy facilities for disposal of dust and rubbish and storage places for baby carriages on the ground floor, playgrounds for children on the top of the buildings,and drying grounds for washing.It is likely that the dispute regarding flats versus(对抗)individual houses will continue to rage on for a long time as far as Britain is concerned.And it is unfortunate that there should be hot feelings on both sides whenever this subject is raised.Those who oppose the building of flats base their case primarily on the assumption(设想)that everyone prefers an individual home and garden and on the high cost per unit of accommodation.The latter ignores the higher cost of providing full services to a scattered community and the cost in both money and time of the journeys to work for the suburban resident.
41.We can infer from the passage that________.
  A.English people,like most people in other countries,dislike living in flats
  B.people in most countries of the world today are not opposed to living in flats
  C.people in Britain are forced to move into high blocks of flats
  D.modern flats still fail to provide the necessary facilities for living
42.What is said about the blocks of flats built in the past in Britain?
  A.They were mostly inhabited by people who did not earn much.
  B.They were usually not large enough to accommodate big families.
  C.They were sold to people before necessary facilities were installed.
  D.They provided playground for children on the top of the buildings.
43.The word “rage” means“________”.
  A.be ignored   B.develop with great force
  C.encourage people greatly  D.be in fashion
44.Some people oppose the building of flats because__________.
  A.the living expenses for each individual family are higher
  B.it involves higher cost compared with the building of houses
  C.they believe people like to live in houses with gardens
  D. the disposal of rubbish remains a problem for those living in flats
45.The author mentions that people who live in suburban houses__________.
  A.do not have access to easy facilities because they live away from the city
  B.have to pay a lot of money to employ people to do service work
  C.take longer time to know each other because they are a scattered community
  D.have to spend more money and time traveling to work every day
Passage 2
Many a young person tells me he wants to be a writer.I always encourage such people, but also explain that there's a big difference between“being a writer”and writing.In most cases these individuals are dreaming of wealth and fame,not the long hours alone at a typewriter.“You've got to want to write,”I say to them,“not want to be a writer”.
  The reality is that writing is a lonely, private and poor paying affair.For every writer kissed by fortune there are thousands more whose longing is never rewarded.When I left a 20-year career in the U.S.Coast Guard to become a freelance writer(自由撰稿人),I had no prospects at all. What I did have was a friend who found me in my room in a New York apartment building.It didn't even matter that it was cold and had no bathroom.I immediately bought a used manual typewriter and felt like a genuine writer.
  After a year or so,however, I still hadn't gotten a break and began to doubt myself.It was so hard to sell a story that barely made enough to eat.But I knew I wanted to write.I had dreamed about it for years.I wasn't going to be one of those people who die wondering.What if? I would keep putting my dream to the test even enough it meant living with uncertainty and fear of failure.This is the Shadow land of hope,and anyone with a dream must learn to live there.
46.The passage is meant to________.
  A.warn young people of the hardships that a successful writer has to experience
  B.advise young people to give up their idea of becoming a professional writer
  C.show young people it's unrealistic for a writer to pursue wealth and fame
  D.encourage young people to pursue a writing career
47.What can be concluded from the passage?
  A.Genuine writers often find their work interesting and rewarding.
  B.A writer's success depends on luck rather than on effort.
  C.Famous writers usually live in poverty and isolation.
  D.The chances for a writer to become successful are small.
48.Why did the author begin to doubt himself after the first year of his writing career?
  A.He wasn't able to produce a single book.
  B.He hadn't seen a change for better life.
  C.He wasn't able to have a rest for a whole year.
  D.He found his dream would never come true.
49.“…people who die wondering.What if?”refers to“those_______”.
  A.who think too much of the dark side of life
  B.who regret giving up their career halfway
  C.who think a lot without making a decision
  D.who are full of imagination even upon death
50.“Shadow land”in the last sentence refers to_______.
  A.the wonder land one often dreams about
  B.the bright future that one is looking forward to
  C.the state of uncertainty before one's final goal is reached
  D.a world that exists only in one's imagination  .
