In 1782, Harvard started a medical school for young men who wanted to become doctors. Later, lawyers could receive their training in Harvard's law school. In 1825, besides Latin and Greek, Harvard began teaching modern languages, such as French and German. Soon it began teaching American history.

Passage Three


Trees should only be pruned (修剪) when there is a good reason for doing so. Many gardeners believe that more damage results from doing it unnecessarily than from leaving the tree to grow in its own way.


First, pruning may be done to make sure that trees have a desired shape. The object may be to get a tree of the right height, and to help the growth of small side branches which will thicken its appearance or give it a special shape. Secondly, pruning may be done to make the tree healthier. You may cut out diseased or dead wood, or branches that are rubbing against each other and thus causing wounds. A tree may grow healthier by removing the branches that are locking up the centre and so preventing the free movement of air.


One result of pruning is that an open wound is left on the tree and this provides an easy entry (进入) for diseases, but it is a wound that will heal. Often there is a race between the healing and the disease as to whether the tree will live or die. Pruning is usually clone in winter, for then you can see the shape of the tree clearly without the interference from the leaves.


41. According to the article, which of the following statement is NOT true?


A. Pruning is necessary when there are unwanted branches.


B. Damage is done to a tree if it is left to grow in its own way.


C. Diseased or dead branches should be cut away if they are found to rub against each other.


D. Growing side branches often prevent air from moving freely.


42. Which of the following usually causes a tree to grow unhealthy?


A. Giving a tree a special shape and a definite height.


B. Removing small side branches and making a tree look less thick.


C. Allowing too many branches to grow in the middle.


D. Having a tree surrounded by many other trees.


43.


43. The wounds result from pruning will do the following EXCEPT______.


A. damage the tree


B. heal itself


C. cause the disease


D. give the tree a desired shape


44. The writer suggests that pruning should be done in winter because______.


A. the cut surface can heal more quickly


B. open wounds on the tree run the less risk of getting diseased


C. a gardener can do pruning more easily


D. the leaves can interfere


45. The writer's purpose when writing this passage is______.


A. to describe how pruning a tree is done


B. to discuss different ways of pruning trees


C. to give practical instructions for pruning a tree


D. to explain how a tree wound gets diseased and heals


Passage Four


"We're more than halfway (中途) now; it's only two miles farther to the tavern (客栈) ," said the driver.


"I'm glad of that," answered the stranger, in a more sympathetic way. He meant to say more but the east wind blew clear down a man's throat if he tried to speak. The girl's voice was quite attractive; however, later he spoke again.
