Passage OneQuestions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.
Among the company was a lawyer, a young man of about twenty-five. On being asked his opinion, he said, “Capital punishment and life imprisonment are equally immoral. If I were to make a choice between them, I would rather choose the latter Anyway, it’s better to live than not to live at all.”
A lively discussion followed. A banker, who was then younger and more nervous than the lawyer, suddenly lost his temper and cried out, “It’s a lie. I bet you two million .You wouldn’t stick in a cell even for five years.”
“If you mean it,” replied the young lawyer, “I bet I’ll stay there longer; make it fifteen instead of five.”
“Fifteen! Done!” cried the banker. “Gentleman, I bet you two millions.”
“Agreed. Two millions for my freedom,” said the lawyer.
So this wild, ridiculous bet came to pass. The banker could not hide his excitement During supper he said to the lawyer jokingly, “Come to your senses, young man, before it’s too late. Two millions are nothing to me, but you stand to lose three or four of the best years of your life. I say three or four because you’ll never stick it out any longer Don’t forget that voluntary imprisonment is much harder to put up with than a enforced one. The idea that you have the right to free yourself any moment will poison your life in the cell. I pity you.”
And now the banker, pacing from comer to comer, recalled all this and asked himself, “Why did I make this bet? What’s the good? The lawyer lost fifteen years of hi life and I threw away two millions. Will it convince people that capital punishment is worse or better than imprisonment for life? No, no! Rubbish! On my part, it was the caprice （心血来潮） of a well-fed millionaire; on the lawyer’s part, it’s the pure greed c gold.”

Passage ThreeQuestions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.
An understanding of man’s effect on the balance of nature is crucial (关键的) to being able to find the appropriate remedial action. It is a very common belief that the problems of the population explosion are caused mainly by poor people living in poor countries who do not know enough to limit their reproduction. This is not true. The actual number of people in an area is not as important as the effect they have on nature. Developing countries do have an effect on their environment, but it is the populations of richer countries that have a far greater impact on the earth as a whole.
For example, tropical forests are known to be essential to the balance of nature, yet we are destroying them at a great rate. They are being cleared not to benefit the natives of that country, but to satisfy the needs of rich countries. Central American forests are being destroyed for grassland to make pet food in the United States cheaper; in Papua slew Guinea, forests are destroyed to supply cheaper cardboard packaging for Japanese electronic products; in Burma and Thailand, forests have been destroyed to produce more attractive furniture in Singapore and Hong Kong. Therefore, a rich person living thousands of miles away may cause more tropical forest destruction than a poor person living in the forest itself.
In short, it is everybody’s duty to safeguard the future of mankind—not only through population control, but by being more aware of the effect his actions have on nature. Nature is both fragile and powerful. It is very easily destroyed; on the other hand, it can easily destroy its most dangerous enemy—man.

A.poor people in poor countries contribute to the imbalance of nature

A. developing countries should be responsible for environmental problems
B. overpopulation in the world is created by the developed countries
C. rich countries exercise worse influence on environment than poor countries
D. all countries should bring the population growth under control
33. The purpose of the second paragraph is mainly to illustrate __.
A. how the forests in the U. S. are being destroyed
B. which countries are the victims of the imbalance of nature
C.what Japan has done to develop its own economy
D. how South Asian countries make quality furniture
34. Nature is very easily destroyed by __.

When you turn on the television, put on your shoes or drive to a store, you’re using energy. Energy is one of the most fundamental forces in the world. Animals use energy to walk and run. Trees and plants use energy to grow. People use it to work and play.
Energy is everywhere in nature—in the light of the sun, in the wind, in the forest, in water currents and erupting volcanoes. Without energy, there is no life. We use our own energy constantly and we continually make use of all kinds of energy.
Energy can be divided into two different types: stored energy and dynamic energy.
Stored energy is called potential energy, and the latter refers to energy in motion. If you stretch out a rubber band, this produces potential energy. If you let it go, it moves an produces the dynamic energy.
