Several years ago， while attending a communication course， I experienced a most unusual process. The instructor asked us to list something in our past that we felt 36 of， regretted， or incomplete about and read our lists aloud.
This seemed like a very 37 process， but there s always some 38 soul in the crowd who will volunteer. The instructor then 39 that we find ways to make apologies to people， or take some action to right any wrong doings. I was seriously wondering how this could ever 40 my communication.
Then the man next to me raised his hand and volunteered this story： "Making my list， I remembered an incident from high school. I grew up in a small town. There was a Sheriff 41 of us kids liked. One night， my two buddies and I decided to play a 42 on him.
After drinking a few beers， we climbed the tall water tank in the middle of the town， and wrote on the tank in bright red paint： Sheriff Brown is a s. o.b. （畜生）。 The next day， almost the whole town saw our glorious 43. Within two hours， Sheriff Brown had us in his office. My friends told the truth but I lied. No one 44 found out."
"Nearly 20 years later， Sheriff Brown s name 45 on my list. I didn t even know if he was still 46 . Last weekend， I dialed the information in my hometown and found there was a Roger Brown still listed. I tried his number. After a few rings， I heard， "Hello？" I said， " Sheriff Brown？" Paused. "Yes." "Well， this is Jimmy Calkins. "
"And I want you to know that I did it."Paused. "I knew it！" he yelled back. We had a good laugh and a 47 discussion. His closing words were： "Jimmy， I always felt bad for you because your buddies got it off their chest， but you were carrying it 48 all these years. I want to thank you for calling me …… for your sake."

There are two factors which determine an individual s intelligence. The first is the sort of brain he is born with. Human brains differ considerably， some being more capable than others. But no matter how good a brain he has to begin with， an individual will have a low order of intelligence unless he has opportunities to learn. So that second factor is what happens to the individual， the sort of environment in which lie is reared. If an individual is handicapped environmentally， it is likely that his brain will fail to develop and he will never attain the level of intelligence of which he is capable.
The importance of environment in determining an individual s intelligence can be demonstrated by the case history of the identical twins， Peter and Mark. Being identical， the twins had identical brains at birth， and their growth processes were the same. When the twins were three months old， their parents died， and they were placed in separate foster homes. Peter was reared by parents of low intelligence in an isolated community with poor educational opportunities. Mark was reared in the home of well - to - do parents who had been to college. He was read to as a child， sent to good schools， and given every opportunity to be stimulated intellectually. This environmental difference continued until the twins were in their late teens， when they were given tests to measure their intelligence. Marks IQ was 125， twenty- five points higher than the average and fully forty points higher than his identical brother. Given equal opportunities， the twins， having identical brains， would have tested at roughly the same level.

Are you aware that you actually possess six senses？ The sixth is a muscular sense responsible for directing your muscles intelligently to the exact extent necessary for each action you perform. For example， when you reach for an object， the sensory nerves linking the muscles to the brain stop your hand at the correct spot. This automatic perception of the position of your muscles in relation to the object is your muscular sense in action.
Muscles are strongly bundles of fibers varying from one five - thousandth of an inch to about three inches. They have three unique characteristics， they can become shorter and thicker； they can stretch； and they can retract to their original positions. Under a high -powered microscope， muscle tissue is seen as long， slender cells with a grainy texture like wood.
More than half of a person s body is composed of muscle fibers， most of which are involuntary- in other words， work without conscious direction. The voluntary muscles， those that we move consciously to perform particular actions， number more than five hundred. Women have only 60 to 70 percent as much muscle as men for their body mass. That is why an average woman cant lift as much， throw as far， or hit as hard as an average man.
66. According to the selection， the muscular sense is responsible for______.
A. the efficiency of our muscles
B. the normal breathing function
C. directing our muscles intelligently
D. the work of only our involuntary muscles
67. Intelligent use of the muscles means that______.
A. one always knows what his muscles are doing
B. one performs simple actions without working
C. ones muscles are used only to the extent necessary for each action they perform
D. one improves muscular action consciously
68. Muscles are unique fibers because they can______.
A. contract B. stretch
C. retract D. do all of the above
69. Under a microscope， muscle cells appear to be______.
A. textured like wood B. colored like wood
C. smooth and red D. short and thick
70. According to the selection more than half of a person s body is composed of______.
A. voluntary muscles B. muscle fibers
C. involuntary muscles D. sensory nerves
An apprenticeship is a form of on - the -job training that combines workplace experience and classroom learning. It can last anywhere from one to six years， but four years is typical for most.
One of the advantages of apprenticeship is that it does not cost apprentices anything. The companies that hire them pay for school. What s more， it offers apprentices an "earn while you learn" opportunity. They usually start out at half the pay of a journeyman （学徒期满的熟练工）， and the pay increases gradually as they move further along in the job and studies.
Despite the advantages， apprentices are usually required to work during the day and attend classes at night， which leaves little time for anything else. Sometimes， they might be laid off （下岗） if business for the employers is slow.
Once they completed the apprenticeship and become journeymen， they receive a nationally recognized and portable certification and their pay also increases again. Some journeymen continue employment with the companies they apprenticed with； others go on to different companies or become self- employed contractors.
（1） The typical period of apprenticeship is ______.
（2） The school of apprentices is paid by ______.
（3） A journeyman usually gets ______ the pay of an apprentice.
（4） The apprentices have little time for anything else because ______.
（5） Apprentices receive a nationally recognized and portable certification after ______.
How much sleep is enough for a person？ There are different answers for different people. Eight hours a night is considered the average amount of sleep. For teenagers， the least number of sleeping hours advised by doctors are： ten hours for primary school students， nine for junior highs and eight for senior highs. Some people seem to get along just fine with very little sleep at night. Leading American scientist Thomas Edison said that sleep was a waste of time. He did， however， take naps during the day. On the other hand， Albert Einstein， another great scientist， said he needed at least ten hours sleep at night.
（1） This passage mainly tells us ______.
Nowadays， there is a growing concern over such a phenomenon， that is， some parents take care of almost everything concerned with their children， including study， work， and marriage. Some parents believe that this is love； however， it is only to destroy childrens independence thoroughly. For the future of the next generation， more efforts should be made by parents to help their children to be independent. The fundamental one is to cultivate the awareness， namely， the importance and necessity of being independent， which is supposed to begin from childhood. Children should be taught that no one can be stronger and more helpful than themselves in this world.
（2）The main idea of this passage is ______.
