Using them again, they slowly become strong again. Everybody knows this and nobody would think of 37 this fact. Yet there are many people who do not seem to know that memory works in the 38 way.
39 Someone says that he has a good memory: he 40 means that his memory by practicing exercising it. When someone else says that his memory is poor, he actually means that he does not give it enough chances to become 41 . Have you ever 42 that people who cannot read or write usually have 43 memories than those who can? This is 44 those who cannot read or write have to remember things. They have to remember dates, places. Names, songs and stories. So their memory is the whole time being used. So if you want to have a good memory, you should learn from those people, 45 by remembering what you see, hear, feel and write. If so, you must have a good memory.

Can you imagine traveling to work in a one man submarine? Some scientists believe that some day one man submarines will be as many as automobiles are today. A famous French driver says, “One day soon, men will walk on the ocean floor as they do on the street!” Perhaps during your lifetime people will travel, work, and live in the sea.
If human beings want to live in the ocean, many human problems will need to be studied first.
Some of these problems, similar to those of living in outer space, are pressure, lack of oxygen and weightlessness. Many questions are still unanswered. For example, can our blood make itself fit for underwater surroundings? What will happen to our muscle if we live in the water very long? Scientists are looking for answers.
Perhaps in the future man will live in the sea, away from the crowded and noisy cities on land. Then sea has plenty of space, not only for floating living buildings and parks, but also for storing supplies and for underwater travel.
Some scientists believe that ocean living will benefit man in more than physical ways. In the freedom and beauty of the deep sea, man may find new sources of joy.
46. What can we do if we live in the ocean?
A. We can have plenty of oxygen.
B. We can be fit to live in the water very well.

47. Why do some people hope to leave cities to live in the sea? Because__________.
A. people think they can live crowdedly in the sea

48. In what ways could ocean living be helpful for man?

C. The sea can supply people with enough foods and other things, so people needn’t work.
D. People can go boating and go to the park as often as possible.

A. The scientists have not solved the problem of weightlessness underwater.
B. The scientists have solved the problem of weightlessness when man live in space.
C. Some scientists believe that ocean living will benefit man in no more than physical ways.

Some people have the feeling that nothing can be done about their poor reading ability. They feel hopeless about it. Can you learn to read better, or must you agree that nothing can be done about it?
To be sure, people are different. You cannot expect to do everything as well as certain other people do. If all the students in a class tried out for basketball, some would be very good players; others would be very poor; and many would be in between. But even the very poor players can become much better players if they are guided in the right way, and with plenty of practice. It is the same with reading. Some seem to enjoy reading and to read well without any special help. Others find reading a slow and tiring job. In between, there are all degrees of reading ability.
Many experiments have shown that just about every poor reader can improve his reading ability. In these experiments, the poor readers were given tests of reading ability. After some of the causes of their reading were discovered, they were given special instruction and practice in reading. After a few months, another test of the same kind was given. In nearly all cases, these people had raised their reading scores.

Years ago it was very difficult to travel from one place to another. The journeys were often long，tiring and dangerous. Today the picture has changed. Science has improved transportation and communication facilities a great deal. Traveling has become safer，more enjoyable and above all，more economical.
Traveling—whether within one‘s country or abroad—brings many invaluable benefits. People travel for pleasure，business or for education and knowledge. In the world of yesterday most people were only able to read about strange and fascinating places across the mountains and seas. Later， with the coming of the cinema and television， man’s curiosity about faraway places with strange sounding names was further stirred up. Today man‘s curiosity can be satisfied in luxurious comfort. There are first-class ships and airplanes to take him where his dreams lie.
We travel to increase our knowledge of the world in which we live. Knowledge obtained from books alone is not enough. New knowledge of different lands and peoples enrich our mind and soul. Books generally do not give us a very true picture of lands beyond our shores. Some of them are even misleading.

On Modern Transportation
With the help of science，transportation makes traveling safer and easier，which brings lots of benefits like satisfying man’s curiosity and increasing man’s knowledge of the world.
I can‘t agree more. As the legend goes：To carry the news of the Greek victory，Philippines，a professional runner，had to run 42 kilometers without stopping. He dropped dead of exhaustion after shouting，“Rejoice， we conquer！” That happened in 490BC，but now it’s easy for us to cover this distance by car. With the help of modern transportation， we can go everywhere we prefer to. Even the journey to outer space is not a dream any more.
Despite the obvious advantages of modern transportation，it has also created many negative effects such as air pollution，traffic jams and lack of energy. To solve the problems，in my mind，there are two ways. On one hand，rules should be made for drivers to follow. On the other hand，if possible，we‘d better use bicycles instead of cars to save energy as well as easing traffic jams.
