Do you know that vegetables can grow in the climates they are not used to？Cool climate vegetables like asparagus(芦笋) are now able to be grown in places as hot as Hawaii.In Hawaii，marine(海的) engineers have been able to actually let you believe such vegetables that they are living in cooler climates.In that way they grow faster and taste better.What these engineers have been using is very simply cold sea water.How did they use it? They place pipes in the soil and cold water flowing through them cools the earth.This causes plant grow and enables gardeners in tropical climates(热带气候) to grow crops from cooler climates. Also some of these pipes are exposed to the air and they make the air ?wet? and thus water the gardens. What especially makes people happy about this process is that nothing to the natural conditions is being used.Another new use for cold ocean water is to cool buildings. Engineers believe that for example the entire west coast of the United States could be airconditioned using sea water.

Education is not an end，but a means to an end.In other words，we do not educate children only for the purpose of educating them.Our purpose is to fit them for life.
In some modern countries it has for some time been fashionable to think that by free education for all—whether rich or poor，clever or stupid—one can solve all the problems of society and build a perfect nation.But we can already see that free education for all is not enough；we find in such countries a far larger number of people with university degrees.They refuse to do what they think “low” work，and in fact，work with hands is thought to be dirty and shameful in such countries.But we have only to think a moment to understand that the work of a completely uneducated farmer is far more important than that of a professor，we can live without education but we die if we have no food.If no one cleaned our streets and took the rubbish away from our houses，we should get terrible diseases in our towns...
In fact，when we say that all of us must be educated to fit us for life，it means that we must be educated in such a way that，firstly，each of us can do whatever work suited to his brain and ability and，secondly，that we can realize that all jobs are necessary to society，and that it is very bad to be ashamed of one’s work.Only such a type of education can be considered valuable to society.
25．From the passage we can conclude that________.
A．free education can do nothing to help the world
B．free education will provide us a perfect world
C．all the problems of society can’t be solved by education

How to Do Well in Exams
Do not underestimate the power of revision in the days and hours before an examination.The closer you are to the exam，the more chance you have of storing and retaining crucial information.But do not overdo it.__36__ An effective daily routine can help you through an exam period, so in the days leading up to your first exam，get into the habit of being up and ready to work by game.It can be a shock to the system after months of working to your own timetable to be mentally alert at that time if you have not prepared for it.
On the day of the exam，have a good breakfast，pack two of everything you need (pens，pencils，erasers，etc.)，then make your way to the examination hall in good time.____
Once in your seat, simply pause for a few seconds and collect your thoughts.Close your eyes and take in a few slow，deep breathes to help you relax.When you turn over the test paper，spend a short period reading through all the instructions and questions，paying particular attention to key verbs such as “discuss”,“compare” and “evaluate”．__38__ It is wise always to allow for 10 minutes at the end of the exam to give yourself time to go back over your answers.Once you have selected the questions you wish to tackle，begin by attempting the one you think is your strongest.It will give you more confidence when you see a wellanswered question down on the paper.Also remember to write clearly，and do not be afraid to express the unexpected：after all，examiners can get very bored marking stereotypical answers.
____ If you do need something else to focus on to help collect your thoughts，choose a fixture in the room，such as the ceiling or anything else that will not allow you to be distracted.
Finally，once you have finished，never hang around outside afterwards to attend the discussion by other students.__40__
A．Do not arrive too early，though，as other people’s anxiety can be infectious，and you may suffer from unnecessary panic.
B．Try not to be tempted to look at those around you，or at the clock.
C．When you get home，read the examination paper through and look up all the words you didn’t understand.
D．Sleep，exercise and relaxation are all just as important.
E．Map out a quick plan of points you wish to make and how much time you should spend on each question.
F．Go and have a wellearned rest，then prepare for your next exam.
G．Underestimate the test in your mind.
