Part II Reading Comprehension (40 points)

Finding fresh drinking water was not a problem in the Roman Empire. The ancient Romans built aqueducts (from the Latin words aqua, meaning "water," and ductus, meaning "channel"). The pipes and channels wound down hills and valleys, transporting freshwater from remote lakes and streams to cities. Engineers designed each aqueduct so that water would drop precisely 24 feet per mile. A steeper slope would bring too much water too quickly. Less of a slope would cause the water to stagnate. Stone bridges with multiple arches were built to support aqueducts where the land dipped too sharply. Many of the bridges can still be found in Europe. At the Roman Empire's peak in the first and second centuries, nearly 200 cities had water supplied by aqueducts.
Rome, the empire's capital, had 11 aqueducts for its estimated 1 million people. When the water reached Rome, it flowed into large containers, or tanks, on high ground. From there, it was distributed through pipes to different areas of the city. Some water was sold to rich citizens for their private use; some went to supply large public baths; the rest went to public fountains, located at crossroads throughout Rome that were never more than 109 yards apart. Experts say that each citizen of Rome could have used an average of 265 gallons of fresh, clean water per day — more than what's available in some cities today.

The Carr family of Wendell returns this week from Disney World on their first vacation ever, but the circumstances for taking it are one they would never have wanted. The trip was a result of the generosity of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the nation’s largest wish granting organization for children with life threatening illnesses.
Kaleb Carr, 3, has cancer in the retina of the eye. After six months of treatment, he is considered stable. One tumor is now dead cells and the other is a large mass and doctors aren't sure if it is active or not, said Kaleb's mother, Holly Carr.
The family enjoyed their first vacation and thus had a week of freedom from visits to the doctor and worry. “They take you step by step through things so you can be worry and carefree and just concentrate on having fun with the family,” said Holly.
The vacation included a three-day pass to Disney World, two days at Universal Studios, a day pass to Sea World, lodging and free food from restaurants at Give Kids the World Village, a resort for wish organizations. It also included VIP status at the parks which meant the Carrs didn't have to wait in lines.
"We are having a blast," said Holly last week from her cell phone. "They saw dolphins this morning and Kaleb got to feed the dolphins." Holly said the village where they stayed is a fantastic recreation of the children's Candy Land game with events every morning and night after park activities.
21. Why did the Carr family of Wendell visit Disney World?
A. Because some children suffered from life threatening illnesses.
B. Because they had planned to visit Disney World for a long time.
C. Because they received the support of a wish granting organization.
D. Because the children in the family enjoyed visiting the Disney World.
22. The family had one week of freedom from visits to the doctor and worry because__________.

D. a theme park of Sea World
24. What does the underlined sentence we are having a blast in the last paragraph mean?

B. We are queuing to see dolphins.
C. We are waiting to feed dolphins.
D. We are planning to extend our stay.

Most cell phones hate water. Get a few drops under the case, and that horrible little wetness indicator next to the battery goes red. Next thing you know, your phone doesn't work, and your carrier won't replace it. So bringing your phone to the beach can be a bad idea. The good news is that there are three types of cell phones built specifically for active fun.
The Casio Exilim C721 on Verizon Wireless is the ultimate summer phone. That is because it also doubles as a waterproof, 5-megapixel camera—so you can leave your old digital camera at home, too. The Exilim is covered by a protective coating so you can shoot underwater. It's also proven as being against shock. If you spend a lot of time at the beach, this phone will be your best friend.
Outdoors sportsmen should consider the unlocked Sonim XP3.20 Quest, which is the world's toughest phone--a claim I have tested. It can be tossed around violently, frozen, put into water, hit with a chisel, and used to hammer nails. Even if it does break, it comes with a no-questions-asked replacement promise.
The Nextel i580 is the way to go if you're worried about durability. Bear in mind: It isn't waterproof, it's water-resistant--it'll survive a quick dunk or splash, but you can't submerge it. In my tests, it survived freezing, washing, dropping from a second-story window, and getting run over by a sports car. The i580 also has great call quality and a built-in MP3 player.
26. According to the author, why is bringing your phone to the beach a bad idea?
A. Because your carrier does not permit the use of cell phones at the beach.
B. Because cell phones would not work if there is water inside.
C. Because the wetness indicator would go red at the beach.
D. Because few people bring their cell phones to the beach.
27. What makes the Casio Exilim C721 the ultimate summer phone?
A. Its stylish design.
B. Its protective coating.
C. Its resistance to shock.
D. Its waterproof, 5-megapixel camera.
28. What would happen if you want to replace your broken Sonim XP 3.10?
A. It would be replaced without question.
B. It would be replaced by a locked XP 3.10.
C. You would be questioned about how you broke it.
D. You have to pay a minimum amount of fees for repairing it.
29. What qualities does the Nextel i580 have?
A. It can be submerged, frozen and washed.
B. It can be submerged, washed, and run over by a sports car.
C. It can be frozen, washed, and dropped from a second-story window.
D. It can be submerged, frozen and dropped from a second-story window.
30. The main purpose of the passage is to __________.
A. explain how cell phones work
B. introduce three types of cell phones
C. discuss the fun of using mobile phones
D. describe the harm of water to cell phones
Laughter brings a range of health benefits into your daily life. Laughing boosts your immune system. Just look at the work of Dr. Lee Berk, of Loma Linda University in California. Berk doesn't tell jokes beside patients’ beds, but he does research humor. He has shown that laughing can lead to an increase in antibodies and other cells that fight viruses.
Other studies show that laughter might be helpful for people in hospitals. An organization called Rx Laughter carried out a study about humor in the hospital. The results suggest that laughter might help children deal with painful medical treatments.
The study involved children between the ages of 8 and 14. The kids placed their hands in cold water for as long as they could while watching funny old TV shows, such as I Love Lucy. Guess what happened? The kids were able to withstand pain for a longer period of time when they were watching a funny video than when watching no video. Those who laughed more felt less pain.
"This means that humor can keep you away from thinking about a painful process and thus make it seem less painful," says Dr. Margaret Stuber, the main researcher for the study. She works at the University of California at Los Angeles. As Stuber also points out, humor may even be good for your emotional health because physical and emotional health are connected. "If you can say to yourself that a medical treatment wasn't as bad as you thought it would be, then you're less likely to have nightmares, fears about going to the doctor, and other related anxieties," she says.
31. According to Dr. Lee Berk, laughing benefits us because __________.
A. it makes us more humorous
B. it helps us feel more relaxed
C. it helps us deal with painful medical treatments
D. it leads to an increase in antibodies and the cells that fight viruses
32. Why did the children between the ages of 8 and 14 put their hands in cold water?
A. Because they wanted to cool their hands off.
B. Because they took part in an experiment on laughter.
C. Because they wanted to test their ability to resist cold.
D. Because they used to do this while watching old TV shows.
33. According to Dr. Margaret Stuber, how does humor help children deal with painful medical treatments?
A. It makes them laugh more.
B. It makes them emotionally healthy.
C. It makes them think less about a painful process.
D. It makes them feel less worried about the treatments.
34. Which of the
following is true about laughter?
A. Laughter cures people of all their diseases.
B. Laughter solves all the mental problems.
C. Laughter is beneficial to both physical and emotional health.
D. Laughter makes children watch old TV shows for a longer time.

The fast-paced social life has brought us a variety of pressures. Cultivating a hobby could help us stay away from the daily troubles to a certain extent.
The cultivation of a hobby could offer us periodic moments of relaxation and enjoyment. For instance, when we are absorbed in the wonderful melody composed by, say, Bach, it is as if we were taking a journey in a different world. The enjoyment of a pastime could also improve our work efficiency because the intervals that hobbies bring us can refresh us and make us more focused when we continue with our work.
So don’t hesitate about the choice of hobbies. Just go ahead before it is too late. (116 words)
