Last year, my boyfriend suggested that I should run the London marathon, and I laughed. He laughed too, but he laughed too long and too loud. That made me think. I 16 that he didn’t believe that I could do it. That made me angry, but determined.
On the day of the race in London, I 17 up with about 30,000 other runners. The faster runners were at the front, while slower runners like me were 18 further back. In that way, the professional runners and club runners were not slowed down by the amateurs (业余者).
For the first 10 km I felt happy and my legs felt very 19 . However, at 15 km I got a pain in my side and running became difficult, but I kept going and the pain disappeared. At the 30 km 20 , I felt extremely tired, and wanted to stop, but I kept on going. I 21 another 3 km and then I began to feel better again.
When I finished 35 km, I knew I was going to get to the end of the course. Somehow that 22 made me feel lighter and faster and it seemed as if my legs 23 over the last few kilometers.

A few years ago I was shopping with a friend and his 12-year-old daughter in downtown San Francisco. A street musician, whom my friend happened to know from his own musician days, was playing the saxophone(萨克斯管) on a street corner. His name was Clifford, and he had attracted a large crowd with his performance. After he finished, my friend introduced him to me and his daughter. Clifford asked her if she played any instrument. When she replied that she was taking trumpet(小号) lessons and played in her junior high school band, he said, “That’s fine, little lady. Learn your instrument well and you can play anything. ”
Somehow these simple yet wise words struck me as appropriate not only for a trumpet player but also for a reader. If you learn to read well, you can read anything you want-not just newspapers and magazines, but more difficult material like philosophy, file criticism, military history-whatever interests you as your confidence grows. You would not be limited in any way. If you have the vocabulary-or at least a good dictionary near at hand-you can pick up a book, concentrate on it, and make sense of the author’s words.
In the United States, reading instruction often ends at elementary school, so students sometimes have difficulty as they progress through school. They must take their assignments armed only with their elementary school reading skills. The result, too often, is frustration and loss of confidence. And the assigned reading in your college courses will be even greater than they were in high school. Developing Reading Skills is designed to accomplish several tasks : to show you the skills that will enable you to read with greater comprehension, to help you cope with reading assignments with confidence, and to teach you to become an active reader.
26. The author develops his point by starting with ______.
A. an example B. an incident

A. Clifford was good at playing the saxophone.
B. The author’s friend was once a street musician.
C. The 12-year-old girl played the trumpet very poorly.
D. Clifford was a good music teacher.
28. “Struck … as appropriate” in Line 1, Paragraph 2 most probably means ______.
A. seemed to be appropriateB. proved to be appropriate
C. happened to be appropriateD. found to be appropriate
29. With good reading skills, you can ______.
A. understand anything you read without difficulty
B. work out the author’s meaning if only you concentrate on the book

A. is directed to elementary school students

That experiences influence subsequent behavior is evidence of an obvious but nevertheless remarkable activity called remembering. Learning could not occur without the function popularly named memory. Constant practice has such an effect on memory as to 1ead to skilful performance on the piano，to recitation of a poem，and even to reading and understanding these words. So-called intelligent behavior demands memory，remembering being a primary requirement for reasoning. The ability to solve any problem or even to recognize that a problem exists depends on memory. Typically，the decision to cross a street is based on remembering many earlier experiences.
Practice (or review) tends to build and maintain memory for a task or for any learned material. Over a period of no practice what has been learned tends to be forgotten；and the adaptive consequences may not seem obvious. Yet，dramatic instances of sudden forgetting can be seen to be adaptive. In this sense，the ability to forget can be interpreted to have survived through a process of natural selection in animals. Indeed，when one’s memory of an emotionally painful experience leads to serious anxiety，forgetting may produce relief. Nevertheless，an evolutionary interpretation might make it difficult to understand how the commonly gradual process of forgetting survived natural selection.
In thinking about the evolution of memory together with all its possible aspects，it is helpful to consider what would happen if memories failed to fade. Forgetting clearly aids orientation in time，since old memories weaken and the new tend to stand out，providing clues for inferring duration. Without forgetting，adaptive ability would suffer，for example，learned behavior that might have been correct a decade ago may no longer be. Cases are recorded of people who (by ordinary standards) forgot so little that their everyday activities were full of confusion. This forgetting seems to serve that survival of the individual and the species.
Another line of thought assumes a memory storage system of limited capacity that provides adaptive flexibility specifically through forgetting. In this view，continual adjustments are made between learning or memory storage (input) and forgetting (output).Indeed，there is evidence that the rate at which individuals forget is directly related to how much they have learned. Such data offers gross support of contemporary models of memory that assume an input-output balance.

A. sudden forgetting may bring about adaptive consequences
B. forgetting for lack of practice tends to be obviously inadaptive
C. if a person gets very forgetful all of a sudden, he must be very adaptive
