  Man's story in China began many thousands of years ago.Remains of an early form of man discovered in China, known as Peking Man, indicate that Stone Age men lived in the area as long as 500,000 years ago.During the centuries that followed, their descendants laid the foundations of civilization in China.

  Throughout its history, China has been a rich source of inventions. Silk, the compass, tea and porcelain originated there. In addition, they are responsible for the invention of paper and printing.

  The Chinese had used ink as early as 1200 B. C., an excellent type which they made from lampblack and which is known in English as India ink or China ink. By the end of the first century A. D., the Chinese had invented paper.

  The Chinese also invented printing. Early Chinese printing is called block printing. The printer carved raised characters on a block of wood, wet the surface of the characters with ink, and pressed sheets of paper against them. Printers in the llth century went on to invent movable type of baked clay. The characters of the movable type could be rearranged to form different words and thus be used over and over again. The Chinese alphabet has about 40 thousand characters. Because of the difficulty of producing so many pieces of type, most Chinese printers continued to use block printing.

  Passage Three

  People often speak of fire as though it were a living creature--It grows, dances, needs oxygen,feeds on whatever it can find, and then dies. And when a forest fire rages out of control, threatening human lives and homes, it must be fought like a "wild animal. " The fight is often desperate, since firefighters' best efforts may be dwarfed by the fury of a large fire. But the fire's own traits can be used against it.

  The heated air above a fire rises in a pillar of smoke and burnt gases, pulling fresh air in from the sides to replace it. Firefighters use this fact when they "fight fire with fire. " They start a fire well in front of the one which they are fighting. Instead of traveling on in front of the huge fire, the smaller fire is pulled back toward it by the updrafts of the larger blaze. As it travels back to meet the large fire, the smaller backfire burns away the fuel that the forest fire needs to survive.

  Even when a backfire has been well set, however, the fire may still win the struggle. The wind which the firefighters used to help them may now become their enemy. When the backfire meets the main fire, before both die for lack of fuel, there is tremendous flame, great heat and wild winds. A strong gust may blow the fire into the treetops beyond the area, giving the fire new fuel and a new life.

  44. This passage focuses on__________.

  A. how fires start

  B. damage caused by fire

  C. the fascination of fire

  D. fighting forest fires

  45. A backfire is started__________.

  A. behind a forest fire

  B. ahead of a forest fire

  C. on the sides of a forest fire

  D. all around a forest fire

  46. This passage suggests that a fire will travel__________.

  A. faster than a horse can run

  B. in all directions at the same speed

  C. in whatever direction the wind is blowing

  D. toward the nearest source of fuel

  47. In the last paragraph, the writer again refers to the fire as a living creature by saying that it__________.

  A. can be blown around by the wind

  B. dwarfs man's best efforts

  C. heats the air above it

  D. may still win the struggle

  Passage Four

  When Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer in rural Illinois, he and a certain judge in town once got to bantering with one another about horse trading. The upshot of the discussion was that they agreed that the next morning, at nine o'clock, they would meet in front of the general store and make a trade.

The large crowd viewing the spectacle burst out laughing, already knowing that Abe Lincoln was bound to get the worst of the deal. A poorer horse just couldn't exist anywhere and still be walking.

As he drew nearer, the crowd saw what it was, and great shouts and laughter broke out.
