Prehistoric people are human beings who lived before writing was invented about 5,500 years ago. Writing 26 people to record information they wished to save,27 descriptions of events in their lives.28 this way, the invention of writing marked the beginning of history. The period before human beings learned to write is called prehistory.
Scientists first discovered evidence of prehistoric people in the mid-1800's .Most of this evidence 29 ancient, sharp-edged stone tools and fossilized （已变成化石的）bones of prehistoric people.
30 scientists collected more fossils of prehistoric people, they began to form a clearer 31 of what these early people looked like. For example, scientists learned that early human beings had smaller brains than most modern men and women have. This evidence indicated 32 humans had evolved-that is, modified their physical structure over time. Scientists developed a set of ideas about human origins 33 the theory of human evolution. This theory states that as the 34 of the prehistoric world changed, our prehistoric ancestors went 35 a series of changes that resulted in the first human beings. They, 36 , evolved into modern human beings.
Evidence of prehistoric people is 37 and difficult to find. Scientists must 38 their theory on this extremely limited evidence. As a result, scientists cannot 39 present a detailed picture of early human life. 40, new discoveries sometimes disprove theories that scientists already hold.

Policemen, both in Britain and in the United States, hardly find anything in common between their lives and what they see on TV- if they ever get home in time. There are similarities, of course, but the cops don't think much of them.
The first difference is that a policeman's life is centered around the law. Most of his training is in criminal law. He has to know exactly what actions are crimes and what evidence can be used to prove the crimes in court. He has to know nearly as much as a professional lawyer. What is more, he has to apply it on his feet, in the dark and in the rain, running down an alley after someone he wants to talk to.
Little of his time is spent in chatting with women of the street or in dramatic confrontations with desperate criminals. He will spend most of his working life typing millions of words on thousands of forms about hundreds of sad, unimportant people who are guilty—or not –of stupid, petty crimes.
Most television crime drama is about finding the criminal. As soon as he is arrested, the story is over. In real life, finding criminals is seldom much of a problem. Except in very serious cases like murders and terrorist attacks –where failure to produce results affects the standing of the police –little effort is made in searching. The police have elaborate hi-tech devices which eventually show up most wanted men.
Having made an arrest, a detective starts to work. To prove his case in court, he often has to gather a lot of different evidence. Much of the evidence has to be given by people who don't want to get involved. So a detective has to be out all hours of the day and night interviewing the witnesses and persuading them to help him.
A third big difference between the drama detective and the real one is the unpleasant moral twilight in which the real one lives. The detective is subject to two opposing pressures: first, as a member of the police he always has to behave with absolute legality; second, as an expensive public servant he has to get results. He can hardly ever do both. Most of the time he has to break the rules in small ways.
If the detective has to deceive the world, the world often deceives him. Hardly anyone he meets tells him the truth. And this separation the detective feels between himself and the rest of the world is deepened by the simple-mindedness-as he sees it-of citizens, social workers, doctors, lawmakers, and judges, who, instead of stamping out crime, punish the criminals less severely in the hope that this will make them reform. The result, he feels, is that nine-tenths of his work is re-catching people who should have stayed behind bars. This makes him rather cynical.
51．It is essential for a policeman to be trained in criminal law______.
A．so that he can catch criminals in the street
B．so that he can justify his arrests in court
C．because many of the criminals he has to catch are dangerous
D．because he has to know nearly as much about the law as a lawyer
52．The everyday life of a policeman or detective is_____.
A．exciting and glamorous
B．full of danger
C．devoted mostly to routine matters
D．wasted on unimportant matters
53．When murders and terrorist attacks occur the police_____.
A．prefer to wait for the criminal to give himself away
B．make much effort in trying to track down their man
C．try to make a quick arrest to keep up their reputation
D．usually fail to produce results
54．The real detective lives in “an unpleasant moral twilight”(L. 2, Para. 6) partly because _____.
A．he is an expensive pubic servant
B．he works under constant pressure to get results
C．he feels himself to be cut off from the rest of the world
D．he is obliged to break the law slightly in order to keep it
55．The detective is rather cynical because _____.
A．society does not punish criminals severely enough
B．nine-tenths of his work involves arresting people
C．hardly anyone tells him the truth
D．too many criminals escape from jail
When the French Institute in Haiti asked me to speak on a subject of my own choice, I picked heroism. It's a subject I know well. I’ve read many books about it.
I spoke of some well-known heroes. I suggested that I was something of a hero myself. Then I described how the hero, in face of danger, discovers all the great, lasting values of life.
When I left the platform, a gentleman came to me. “Great lecture,”he said. “I'm Doctor Bonbon. I’ve been asked to make your stay here as pleasant as possible. Would you like to go hunting sharks with me? You seem to enjoy facing danger.”
I accepted gladly. I saw myself struggling with a huge fish on my rod…
I was to speak again the next afternoon. So we agreed to start early that morning.
“By the way,”the doctor said as we set out ,“you should try out your Cousteau.”
“Your snorkel. You need to breathe. I'll show you how to work the underwater gun too. What’s the matter? Something wrong?”
I had to sit down. I tried to tell myself it wasn't so. But there was no doubt about it. I wasn’t to fish with a rod, I was to go right down into the water. I opened my mouth to protest…
“You know,”the doctor said. “I can't tell you how much we all enjoyed your lecture on courage.”
I said nothing. There are times when you have to protect your means of earning a living. I was known as a good speaker. If I had to be eaten by sharks to keep my reputation, I was ready. I put on my mask.
“Now put on the lead belt. It will get you down there instantly,”the doctor said. “They'll go down with you.”He pointed to the four giants on board.
Bodyguards, I thought with relief.
“They're the beaters,”the doctor said. “They’ll go ahead and drive the sharks toward you. Then all you have to do is shoot.”I didn't have the courage to object. They helped me over the side.
At the bottom the first thing I saw was a big fish. I screamed.
I can't quite remember what followed. All I know is that, contrary to what I had said in my lecture, at the moment of danger the hero does not discover the great values of life. When I opened my eyes again, the big fish was gone.
I tried to return to the surface. Then I saw a huge form above my head. I seized my gun, I closed my eyes and I pressed the trigger.
The gun was torn from me.
In seconds I was at the surface. Luckily, the boat was near. I was on board in an instant.
“Where's your gun?”asked the doctor.
I explained that I had hit a shark. The beast had torn the weapon from my hands.
The black swimmers were climbing back into the boat now. One of them had my gun. He spoke to the doctor in Creole.
“It seems,”the doctor said to me, “that yon shot at the hull of the boat.”
He was trying to suggest that I had mistaken the boat passing over my head for a shark. The very idea!
When I stepped onto the platform that afternoon, Doctor Bonbon was sitting in the front row. But I didn't let his mocking stare disturb me. I was determined to rise once more to the level of my subject.
“Ladies and gentlemen,”I began,“when the hero finds himself facing danger, the first thing he discovers…”
