Robots aren’t only in the movies or on TV. One “real” robot recently married a couple at a wedding ceremony in Tokyo, Japan.
Fifty guests stood as the music played and the bride(新娘)walked down towards the groom
(新郎). Only one guest stayed seated - the minister(牧师), who happened to be a robot. For this special ceremony, the four-foot tall robot named I-Fairy wore flowers around her head. I-Fairy’s eyes flashed colored lights as she pronounced the couple man-and-wife and asked the groom to kiss the bride. The wedding was the first time a marriage had been led by a robot, according to the company that built I-Fairy.
A robot might seem like an unusual choice(选择)to lead a wedding, but if you knew the couple you would think I-Fairy was the perfect choice. That’s because the groom teaches robotics at a university and the bride works for the company that built I-Fairy. The newly married couple hopes their wedding will encourage more uses for robots. They hope their wedding will give people ideas about ways in which they might use robots to do “everyday things” in their lives in the near future.

Lightning(闪电)is shocking, and it happens all over the world! Scientists think that there are more than three million lightning strikes(袭击)every day in the world-that’s thirty strikes every second.
Lightning can also be very dangerous. Every year, lightning kills people because it can start big fires or because it reaches temperatures up to 28,000 degrees centigrade. American Roy Sullivan, who worked in a park, holds the record for surviving the most lightning strikes. Between 1942 and 1983, he was hit seven times!
So, why does lightning strike? Lightning strikes happen when ice and water in clouds rub(摩擦)together, and cause atmospheric(大气层的)changes. When this happens, it creates a static charge(静电电荷). Lightning can strike inside the cloud, between two clouds and between a cloud and Earth. It’s the last type of strike that is the most dangerous for humans. About 1,000 people get struck by lightning every year in the United States, and about 100 of them die as a result.
Lightning is certainly not something to toy with. When lightning strikes, it’s best to stay inside a large building. To stay safe, do not stand under trees, on hills or near water. Trees attract lightning. Also, do not lie down on the ground, otherwise the electricity may go through you and cause a heart disease.
( )11. Lightning strikes ________.
A. happen three billion times each day B. will start when there are big fires
C. can reach very high temperatures D. kill all those who work in a park
( )12. What does “surviving” in paragraph 2 mean in Chinese?
A.目睹 B.幸存 C.制造 D. 遇难
( )13. We can infer(推断)from paragraph 3 that ________.
A. lightning strikes are caused whenever ice and water meet
B. lightning between two clouds is the most dangerous for humans
C. lightning strikes create static charge
D. about one tenth of the people struck by lightning die every year in America
( )14. Which expression means “to toy with” in the last paragraph?
A. to play with B. to take seriously C. to show off D. to take it easy
( )15. Where’s the best place to be when lightning strikes?
A. On top of a hill. B. In a swimming pool. C. In a tree. D. Inside.
It is true that people with better education are usually able to get better paying jobs. In other words, they have more chances to choose a good job while people with little or no education don’t. It seems that the purpose of education is to make people get jobs. But this isn’t accepted by all people.
Some people may think that a person should spend the best years of his life to get education only for a way of living. This was probably one of the earliest reasons of education. In fact, if education is just a way of making a living, people don’t need to spend so much time in school. People can get education for a living in a short time. Subjects like history and geography need not be taught to everyone. Even language and mathematics need not be taught in detail (详细地)，either. Here it is clear that education is much more than teaching a man to get a way of living.
Education is well-rounded and it is mainly for improving a man. It is not only to teach him to speak, read and write, but also to develop his creative thinking and other abilities. After that, it is to make him a wise man and thankfully enjoy the achievements of human. Education is to make a man lead a better life. Educated people are expected to be able to listen to good music, read good books, watch plays and most of all take an interest in the world.
I would agree that making a good living is an important reason for education, but certainly not the most important or the main reason.
( )16. People with little education usually _______.
A. spend a long time in school B. have a good chance to get a job
C. spend the best years choose jobs D. have fewer chances to get a good job
( )17. The earliest education was probably to __________.
A. make a man lead a better life B. teach a man to write and think
C. make people get a way of living D. teach people to read good books
( )18. The underlined word “well-rounded” in the passage means “ _______” in Chinese.
A. 圆满的 B.崭新的 C. 公平的 D. 全面的
( )19. It is expected that educated people will be able to _________.
A. accept education as a way of living B. take an interest in the whole world
C. develop their abilities to make plays D. learn subjects like language and math
( )20. The passage mainly tells us that _________.
A. education should make a man improve B. people can get education in a short time
C. people should be able to get better paying jobs D. all subjects are so important for a way of living
