Passage Three
 
Banks are not ordinarily prepared to pay out all accounts; they rely on depositors (储户) not to demand payment all at the same time. If depositors should come to fear that a bank is not safe, that it cannot pay off all its depositors, then that fear might cause all the depositors to appear on the same day. If they did, the bank could not pay all accounts. However, if they did not all appear at once, then there would always be enough money to pay those who wanted their money when they wanted it. Mrs. Elsie Vaught has told us of a terrifying bank run that she experienced. One day in December of 1925 several banks failed to open in a city where Mrs. Vaught lived. The other banks expected a run the next day, and so the officers of the bank in which Mrs Vaught worked as a teller had enough money on hand to pay off their depositors. The officers simply told the tellers to pay on demand. The next morning a crowd gathered in the bank and on the sidewalk outside. The length of the line made many think that the bank could not possibly pay off everyone. People began to push and then to fight for places near the tellers‘ windows, The power of the panic atmosphere was such that two tellers, though they knew that the bank was quite all right and could pay all depositors, drew their own money from the bank. Mrs Vaught says that she had difficulty keeping herself from doing the same.

Passage Four
 
One of the greatest problems for those settlers in Nebraska in the last quarter of the previous century was fuel. Little of the state was forested when the first settlers arrived and it is probable that by 1880, only about one-third of the originally forested area remained, down to a mere 1 percent of the state‘s 77,000 square miles. With wood and coal out of the question, and with fuel needed year-round for cooking, and during the harsh winter months for heating, some solution had to be found.
 
Somewhat improbably, the buffalo provided the answer. Buffalo chips (干粪块) were found to burn evenly, hotly, and cleanly, with little smoke and interestingly, no odor, Soon, collecting them became a way of life for the settlers‘ children who would pick them up on their way to and from school, or take part in competitions designed to counteract their natural reluctance. Even a young man, seeking to impress the girl he wanted to marry, would arrive with a large bag of chips rather than with a box of candy or a bunch of flowers.
 
76. What is the main topic of this passage?
 
The solution to the Nebraska settlers‘ fuel problem.
 
Life in Nebraska in the late ninteenth century.
 
The imporance of the American buffalo.
 
Deforestation in Nebraska in the late nineteenth century.
 
77. Which of the following statements is NOT true?
 
Nebraska was not a densely-forested state even before the settlers arrived.
 
The children enjoyed collecting the buffalo chips.
 
The children spent a lot of time collecting the chips.
 
Buffalo chips were satisfactory as a fuel.
 
78. The passage implies that buffalo chips were needed _______.
 
A. in greater amounts in summer B. in greater amounts in winter
 
C. only in summer D. only in winter
 
79. Which of the following does the author not express surprise at?
 
The children needed competitions to them.
 
The buffalo chips gave off no smell.
 
Buffalo chips were the answer to the settlers‘ fuel problem.
 
Young men took bags of buffalo chips to their girl friends.
 
80. What‘s the best title of the passage?
 
A. Early Settlers B. One Use of the Buffalo Chips
 
C. Nebraska‘s Problems D. How Young Men Express Their Love for Girls
