Once a landlord wanted to plant garlic in his fields. He found a group of boys and asked them to do the work for him. At lunch time he did not invite the boys to have lunch with his family. The boys had to sit by the door and have lunch on the ground. The landlord was afraid that other people would see the bad food for the boys. So with a smile on his face he said to them： “Boys， go and eat in the house. This is for your food. If you eat here by the door， the dogs will bite you.” The boys were surprised. But they said nothing and went to eat in the house. The landlord was quite pleased.
Supper time came and the boys went into the house again. When they walked past the landlord's room， they looked in through the window.

She dashed back to the supermarket, got the tea and went towards the cash-desk.

For some time past， it has been widely accepted that babies—and other creatures—learn to do things because certain acts lead to “rewards”， there is no reason to doubt that this is true. But it used also to be widely believed that effective rewards， at least in the early time， had to be directly connected to such basic physiological “drives” as thirst or hunger. In other words， a baby would learn if he needed food or drink or some sort of physical comfort， not otherwise.
It is now clear that this is not so. Babies will learn to behave in ways that produce results in the world with no reward except success in sight.
Papousek began his studies by using milk in the normal way to “reward” the babies and so teach them to carry out some movements， such as turning the head to one side or the other. Then he noticed that a baby who had had enough to drink would refuse the milk but would still go on making， the learned response with clear signs of pleasure. So he began to study the children's responses in situations where no milk was provided. He quickly found that children as young as four months would learn to turn their heads to right or left if the movement “turned on” some lights—and indeed that they were able to learn some more turns to bring about this result， for example， two left or two right， or even to make as many as three turns to one side.
Papousek' s light experiment was placed directly in front of the babies and he made the interesting observation that sometimes they would not turn back to watch the light closely although they would “smile and speak” when the light was on. Papousek concluded that it was not the sight of the lights which pleased them. It was the success they were achieving in solving the problem， in mastering the skill， and then there is a basic human nature to make sense of the world and bring it under control.
70.According to Papousek, the pleasure babies get in achieving is a reflection of ____.
A. a basic human desire to understand and control the world
B. the satisfaction of certain physiological needs
C. their strong desire to solve complex problem
D. an important human urge to display their learned skills
71. According to the writer， babies learn to do things which _______.
A. will satisfy their surprise
B. will meet their physical needs
C. are directly connected to pleasure
D. will bring them a feeling of success
72. Papousek noticed in his studies that a baby _________.
A. would make learned responses when it saw the milk
B. would continue the simple movements without being given milk
C. would turn its head to right or left when it had enough to drink
D. would carry out learned movements when it had enough to drink
73.In Papousek’s experiment babies make learned movements of the head in order to ____.
A. have the lights turned on
B. be rewarded with milk
C. please their parents
D. be praised
74. The babies would “smile and speak” at the lights because ________.
A. they succeeded in “turning on” the lights
B. the sight of lights was interesting
C. they need not turn back to watch the lights
D. the lights were directly connected to some basic “drives” Ⅳ. Reading Comprehension
Generations of Americans have been brought up to believe that a good breakfast is one life's essentials. Eating breakfast at the start of the day, we have all been told, and told again, is as necessary as putting gasoline in the family car before starting a trip.
But for many people the thought of food first thing in the morning is by no means a pleasure. So despite all the efforts, they still take no breakfast. Between 1977 and 1983, the latest year for which figures are available, the number of people who didn't have breakfast, increased by 33 percent.
For those who feel pain of guilt about not eating breakfast, however, there is some good news. Several studies in the last few years indicate that, for adults especially, there may be nothing wrong with omitting breakfast. “Going without breakfast does not affect performance,” said Arrold E. Bender, former professor of the nutrition at Queen Elizabeth College in London, “nor does giving people breakfast improve performance.”
Scientific evidence linking breakfast to better health or better performance is surprisingly inadequate, and most of the recent work involves children, not adults, “The literature”， says one researcher, Dr. Erresto at the University of Texas, “is poor”。
75. The latest year for which figures could be obtained is _______.
A. the year the author wrote the article
C. any year between 1997 and 1983
76. For those who do not take breakfast, the good news is that _______.
A.several studies have been done in the past few years
B.the omission of breakfast does no harm to one's health
C.adults have especially made studies in this field
D.eating little in the morning is good for health
77. “…nor does giving people breakfast improve performance” means ______.
A.anyone without breakfast does improve his performance
B. not giving people breakfast improve performance
C.having breakfast does not improve performance, either
D.people having breakfast do improve their performance
78. The word “literature” in the last sentence refers to _______.
A. stories, poems, plays, etc.
B. written works on a particular subject
C. any printed material
D. the modern literature of America
79. What is implied but NOT stated by the author is that _______.
A. breakfast does not affect performance
B.Dr. Erresto is engaged in research work at an institution of higher learning
C.not eating breakfast might affect the health of children
D.Professor Bender once taught college courses in nutrition in London

Yesterday some of my classmates and I spent our weekend at the seaside.
It was sunny and a little hot， but the water was too cool to swim in. The sea was blue and calm. It shone merrily under the bright sun. There were boats floating here and there. People in them laughed and sang happily.
We took off our shoes and went into the cool water. We walked along the beach in the water. Some girls looked for shells on the shore. Then we lay down and bathed in the sun or played games until it was time to go home.
We all enjoyed a pleasant time at the seaside.
