共用题干Why would They Falsely Confess?Why on earth would an innocent person falsely confess to committing a crime?To most people,it just doesn't seem logical.But it is logical,say experts,if you understand what can happen in a police interrogation（审讯）room.Under the right conditions,people's minds are susceptible（易受影响的）to influence, and the pressure put on suspects during police grillings（盘问）is enormous.______(1) “The pressure is important to understand.because otherwise it's impossible to understand why someone would say he did something he didn't do.The answer is:to put an end to an uncomfortable situation that will continue until he does confess.”Developmental psychologist Allison Redlich recently conducted a laboratory determine how likely people are to confess to things they didn't do.______(2)The researchers then intentionally crashed the computers and accused the participants of hitting the“alt”key to see if they would sign a statement falsely taking responsibility.Redlich's findings clearly demonstrate how easy it can be to get people to falsely confess:59% percent of the young adults in the experiment immediately confessed.______(3)Of the 15-to 16year-olds,72 percent signed confessions,as did 78 percent of the 12-to 13-year-olds.“There's no question that young people are more at risk,”says Saul Kassin,Professor at Williams College,who has done similar studies with similar results.______(4)Both Kassin and Redlich note that the entire“interrogation”in their experiments consis-ted of a simple accusation一not hours of aggressive questioning一and still,most participants falsely confessed.Because of the stress of a police interrogation,they conclude,suspects can become con-vinced that falsely confessing is the easiest way out of a bad situation.______(5)______(5)A:In her experiment,participants were seated at computers and told not to hit the“alt” key,because doing so would crash the systems.B:“In some ways,”says Kassin,“false confession becomes a rational decision.”C:“It's a little like somebody's working on them with a dental（牙的）drill, ”says Frank-lin Zimring,a law professor at the University of California at Berkeley.D:“But adults are highly vulnerable too.”E:How could an innocent person admit to doing something he didn't do?F:Redlich also found that the younger the participant,the more likely a false confession
共用题干第三篇Book Shops in LondonLondoners are great readers.They buy vast numbers of newspapers and magazines and of books一specially paperbacks,which are still comparatively cheap in spite of ever-increasing rises inthe costs of printing. They still continue to buy"proper"books,too,printed on good paper and bound between hard covers.There are many streets in London containing shops which specialize in book-selling. Perhaps the best known of these is Charring Cross Road in the very heart of London.Here bookshops of all sorts and sizes are to be found,from the celebrated one which boasts of being"the biggest bookshop in the world"to the tiny,dusty little places which seem to have been left over from Dicken's time. Some of these shops stock,or will obtain,any kind of book,but many of them specialize in second-hand books,in art books,in foreign books,in books on philosophy,politics or any other of the myriad subjects about which books may be written.One shop in this area specializes solely in books about ballet.Although it may be the most convenient place for Londoners to buy books,Charring Cross Road is not the cheapest. For the really cheap second-hand volumes,the collector must venture off the beaten track,to Farringdon Road,for example,in the East Central district of London.Here there is nothing so grandiose as bookshops.Instead,the booksellers come along each morning and tip out their sacks of books on the small barrows（流动集售货车）which line the gutters（街沟）.And the collectors,some professional and some amateur, who have been waiting for them,pounce（一把抓住）upon the dusty cascaded（一叠叠图书）.In places like this one can still, occasionally, pick up for a few pence an old volume that may be worth many pounds.The best topic for this passage is________.A:Bookshops in LondonB:The biggest bookshop in the worldC:Charring Cross RoadD:Buying books in London

共用题干第二篇Kobe BryantAfter 10 seasons wearing the No 8 on his back,Kobe Bryant will become No 24 next season.The reason for the surprising decision by the Los Angeles Lakers super guard last week has become a hot topic for debate.Bryant wore No 24 when he was in early high school,but he changed to No 33 in his senior year.He switched to No 8 when he was selected by the Lakers in 1996,and has not been changed since.Bryant has refused to explain the decision until the end of the play-offs（季后赛）.So guessing Bryant's motive has become a popular game among NBA fans and newspaper columnists（专栏作家）.There are all kinds of speculations.Many say that Bryant wants to leave the past behind and have a fresh start.He has often been criticized for playing to benefit himself and not the team as a whole.Others say that he may be trying to compare himself to Michael Jordan.Jordan was famous for his No 23 jersey（运动衫）.Some, such as NBC Sport columnist Michael Ventre,argue that it is"all about money".Bryant will make more money by selling new jerseys to his fans.Some speculations are more about fun.For example,there is an opinion that Kobe is actually just a diehard（非常执着的）fan of the popular TV drama "24".All this talk has turned the number change into a major issue.It seems that there is a lot of fuss（大惊小怪）over something that should be pretty simple.Jersey numbers have their own special significance in American sports,especially basketball.Players choose their number when they join a team and they usually stick with that number for the rest of their career.When a great player retires,his team will honor him by retiring his number.To some extent,the jersey is the player,and the player is the jersey.Thus,when you see the famous No 23 for the Chicago Bulls,you immediately think about Michael Jordan.A No 32 Miami Heats jersey recalls the image of Shaquille O'Neal,and the Houston Rockets' No 11 belongs only to Yao Ming.Lots of stories are behind players' jersey number selections.Jordan said that he chose No 23 because it was roughly half of 45.Jordan's elder brother wore the No 45 in college.Yao Ming once revealed that the No 11 stands for two people in love一meaning him and his girlfriend Ye Li.Why did Jordan choose No 23?A:Because that number would make him famous.B:Because that number would make his fans miss him.C:Because that number was related to the number his brother once wore.D:Because that number was easy to remember.
共用题干Mau Piailug,Ocean NavigatorMau sailed from Hawaii to Tahiti using traditional methods.In early 1976,Mau Piailug,a fisherman,led an expedition in which he sailed a tradi-tional Polynesian boat across 2,500 miles of ocean from Hawaii to Tahiti.The Polynesian Voyaging Society had organised the expedition.Its purpose was to find out if seafarers（海员） in the distant past could have found their way from one island to the other without naviga-tional instruments,or whether the islands had been populated by accident.At the time,Mau was the only man alive who knew how to navigate just by observing the stars,the wind and the sea.He had never before sailed to Tahiti,which was a long way to the south.However,he understood how the wind and the sea behave around islands,so he was confident he could find his way.The voyage took him and his crew a month to complete and he did it without a compass or charts.His grandfather began the task of teaching him how to navigate when he was still a baby.He showed him pools of water on the beach to teach him how the behaviour of the waves and wind changed in different place.Later,Mau used a circle of stones to memorise the positions of the stars.Each stone was laid out in the sand to represent a star.The voyage proved that Hawaii's first inhabitants came in small boats and navigated by reading the sea and the stars.Mau himself became a keen teacher,passing on his traditional secrets to people of other cultures so that his knowledge would not be lost.He explained the positions of the stars to his students,but he allowed them to write things down because he knew they would never be able to remember everything as he had done.Mau was familiar with the sea around Tahiti.A:RightB:WrongC:Not mentioned
