The legal limit for driving after drinking is 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood in the U.S. When tested. But there is no sure way of telling how much you can drink before you reach this limit. It varies with each person depending on your weight, sex, and the sort of drinks you have had. Some people might reach their limit after only about three standard drinks.
In fact, your driving ability can be affected by just one or two drinks. Even if you're below the legal limit, you can still be taken to court if a police officer thinks your driving has been affected by alcohol. It takes about an hour for the body to get rid of the alcohol in one standard drink. So, if you have a heavy drinking in the evening, you might find that your driving ability is still affected the next morning, or you could even find that you are still over the legal limit. In addition, if you have had a few drinks at lunchtime, another one or two drinks in the early evening may well put you over the legal limit.
In a test with professional drivers, the more alcoholic drinks they had had, the more certain they were that they could drive through a set of moveable posts in the driving test... and the less able they were to do it! So the only way to be sure you're safe is not to drink at all. Alcohol is a major cause of road traffic accidents. One in three of the drivers killed in road accidents have levels of alcohol which are over the legal limit, and road accidents after drinking are the biggest cause of death among young people. More than half of the people stopped by the police to take a breath analyzer test have a blood alcohol concentration of more than twice the legal limit.
It is important to remember that driving after drinking doesn't just affect you. If you are involved in an accident, it affects a lot of other people as well, at least the person you might kill or injure.
46.The amount of alcohol one can drink before reaching the legal limit________.
A. is 80 milligrams of pure alcohol B. is bout three standard drinks
C. is different for different people C. is not related to one’s body weight
47.When might you be taken to court by the police for drinking and driving?
A. When you have driven a vehicle after drinking any alcohol at all.
B. When you have had at least three drinks before driving.
C. Only when you tests show that you have 80 milligrams of alcohol at all.
D. When the police think that you r driving is affected by alcohol.
48.According to the passage, which of the following is NOT TURE?
A. When you have been drinking heavily in the evening, you might be still over the legal limit the next morning.
B. The more alcoholic drinks the drivers have had, the more likely they are to pass the driving test.
C. If you have had a standard drink, you may drive an hour later.
D. If you want to drive safely, you had better not drink at all.

She always went there on Thursday. It was a nice outing for an old woman who lived alone. At six o’clock she came home, let herself in and at once smelt cigarette smoke. Cigarette smoke in her house? How? Had someone got in? She checked the back door and the windows. All were locked or fastened, as usual. There was no sign of forced entry.

With the kettle of boiling water in her hand, she moved quietly toward the front door. A long piece of wire appeared through the letter-box, and then a hand. The wire turned and caught around the knob on the door-lock. Mrs. Clarke raised the kettle

No one knows exactly how many disabled people there are in the world, but estimates suggest the number is over 450 million. The number of disabled people in India alone is probably more than double the total population of Canada.
In the United Kingdom, about one in ten people have some disability. Disability is not just something that happens to other people: as we get older, many of us will become less mobile, hard of hearing or have failing eyesight.
Disablement can take many forms and occur at any time of life. Some people are born with disabilities. Many others become disabled as they get older. There are many progressive disabling diseases. The longer time goes on, the worse they become. Some people are disabled in accidents. Many others may have a period of disability in the form of a mental illness. All are affected by people's attitude towards
Disabled people face many physical barriers. Next time you go shopping or to work or visit friends, imagine how you would manage if you could not get up steps, or on to buses and trains. How would you cope if you could not see where you were going or could not hear the traffic? But there are other barriers: prejudice can be even harder to break down and ignorance inevitably represents by far the greatest barrier of all.

Part V Writing(共20分)
It is inevitable that we may experience failure in life. If we don’t work hard or try our best, it is very likely that we will fail in what we do. Sometimes, even when we have already worked hard enough and made every effort, still we may end in failure. Probably it is fair to say that every one has experienced some failure.
People have different attitude towards failure. Some people get very discouraged when they fail, as if there would be no other way out. Others believe failure can be instructive as they can learn from it. If they don’t give up and ;earn their lesson from their past failures, they will succeed eventually.
I believe it is normal that we may fail since failure is part of our life. It is encouraging if we can succeed; however, it is more important that we should not give up if we fail. We should develop our capacity to learn from failures. By doing so, we will definitely succeed in the end.
