I was traveling alone through the UK. To reach places that were off the public transportation map, I bought an old car, which cost most of my money. I couldn't afford to stay in the hotel, so I had to camp in my car for the rest of the trip.
One morning I awoke in my old car on a country road in Ireland and saw a single house. The water in my thermos(保温瓶) had gone cold, so I knocked on the door of the house. A woman opened it. I asked her for some hot water. But she wouldn't let me get away with just that! I was invited indoors. She asked me to sit at the table and have breakfast with her family. They filled my thermos before I left.
I was greatly moved. And I decided to pass the kindness on. The other day I met a young man who had been driving around to look for a parking lot. He looked increasingly upset. I was glad that I was able to point one out to him. His thankful smile was the hugest reward(奖赏) for me.

A scientist named Charles had a strange idea. He wanted to invent a new kind of car which could go without a driver. It could also be used at a living room. That means you can go anywhere on your sofa in the car. You might say that it's impossible. But Charles succeeded in making it in a factory and named it Tridika.
Tridika has no wheels and it starts working when it reaches the magnetic levitation tracks(磁悬浮轨道). It takes its energy from the tracks. And it works in the same way as a magnetic train. It moves very fast. As everyone knows, cities are developing rapidly. There are more and more cars running on the road. So parking space is limited. Sometimes it's hard to find a place to park(停车). Tridika can solve this problem easily because it needn't park on the ground. Actually, it can park on the outside wall of the building with the help of an elevator system(电梯系统). In this way, much parking space can be saved. When Tridika parks itself in front of your apartment, you can get into your room directly. Of course, there must be a side door in the outside wall. Then Tridika becomes another living room. It's really amazing, isn't it?
Tridika can hold six passengers. So you can go on vacation in it with your family in your free time. Of course it can also be used at an office while you are traveling on the road. That is to say, you can travel and work at the same time.
( )16.Who invented the new kind of car?
A．Charles. B．A driver.
C．A factory worker.
( )17.When does Tridika start working?
A．When it gets into your room.
B．Before it parks on the outside wall.
C．When it reaches the magnetic levitation tracks
( )18.What does the underlined word “limited” mean in Chinese?
A．封闭的 B．有限的 C．开放的
( )19.Why can Tridika help save the parking space?
A．Because it can move very fast.
B．Because it can hold six passengers.
C．Because it needn't park on the ground.
( )20.Which is the best title(题目) for this passage?
A．Tridika: A new driverless car
B．Tridika: A fast magnetic train
C．Tridika: A strange side door
On Saturday morning, every boy in town was happy, except Tom Sawyer. Tom's aunt said he had to paint the fence (围栏). It was thirty yards long and three yards high! When he was working, some boys came along and made fun of him.
Ben was the first one that came happily with an apple in his hand.
“I'm going swimming，” said Ben. “Do you want to come? Oh, you have to work, don't you？”
Tom got a little angry, but soon he had a wonderful idea.
“Work？” he said. “I don't think this is work. It's fun. Does a boy get a chance like this every day？”
Ben thought about this. He was watching Tom's every move and was getting more and more interested.
After a while, he said, “Tom, will you let me do some painting？”
“No way. You see, Aunt Polly wants it to be done properly. I'm the only one that can do it right.”
“Oh, please, Tom，” Begged(恳求) Ben. “I'll be really careful. Let me try! I'll give you my apple in return.”
“Well, all right, Ben，” said Tom. “But you must be careful.”
He gave Ben his brush with worry on his face but joy in his heart. He started to eat Ben's apple.
All day, boys passed by and wanted to paint. When Ben got tired, Billy began to paint. He gave Tom his favorite kite. Then Johnny gave him twelve marbles (玻璃球), and so on.
That afternoon, Tom got many toys, and the fence got three coats of paint. Aunt Polly was so pleased when she saw the painted fence that she gave him a large cake!
