C Green is an important color in nature(自然). It is the color of grass and the leaves on trees. It is the color of most growing plants, too. Sometimes, the word green means young, fresh and growing. Sometimes, it describes something that is not yet finished or plants that are not ripe. For example, a greenhorn is someone who has no experience, who is new to a situation（情景）. In the fifteenth century, a greenhorn was a young cow or ox whose horns （角） had not yet developed. A century or so later, a greenhorn was a soldier who had not yet had any experience in war (战争). By the eighteenth century, a greenhorn had the meaning it has today--a person who is new in a job. About one hundred years ago, greenhorn was a popular expression in the American west. Old-timers used it to describe a man who had just arrived from one of the big cities in the e ast. The greenhorn didn?t have the skills that he would need to live in the hard, rough country. Someone who has the ability to grow plants well is said to have a green thumb 拇指）The expression（表 （ . 达方式）comes from the early nineteen hundreds. A person with a green thumb seems to have a magic power（魔力） that makes plants grow quickly and well. You might say that the woman next door has a green thumb if her garden continues to grow long after your plants have died.
The Green Revolution (革命) is the name which was given some years ago to the development of new kinds of rice and other grains. The new plants produced much larger crops. The Green Revolution was the result of hard work by agricultural (农业的) scientists who had green thumbs. 56. According to the passage（文章）, a greenhorn means________ now. A. a young cow or ox whose horns have not yet developed B. a soldier who has not had any experience in war C. a person who is new in a job D. a man who doesn?t have the skills to live in the country 57. The meaning of the underlined word “ripe” in the second paragraph is ________. A.未完成的 B. 成熟的 C. 青涩的 D. 老练的 58. Which of the following about the Green Revolution is NOT right? A. If there weren?t the Green Revolution, we would have no rice to eat. B. The expression “the Green Revolution” appeared several years ago. C. Because of the Green Revolution, we have more kinds of rice and other grains. D. Agricultural scientists with green thumbs started the Green Revolution. 59. We can know from the passage that _______. A. all growing plants is green B. green is the most important color in nature C. a person with a green thumb can make plants grow well D. the expression “a green thumb” has a history of two hundred years 60. The main idea of the passage is ________. A. a greenhorn B. a green thumb C. t he Green Revolution D. the word “green” and its story D Here's one very simple advice that I first heard from a famous man. Cut down on the TV at night by just one hour. Instead, use that hour to read books that could improve your life.If you're a salesman, look for the best and most useful books on improving your sales(销售). This applies (适用) to all fields （领域） not just the work-related (与工作相关的) ones. Maybe you want to , improve your health, become a more energetic（精力充沛的） person. Or maybe you want to improve your study, your relations（关系） or perhaps do some personal（个人） development. One hour a day is not much. But if you read for one hour a day on weekdays, that's about 260 hours a year. That's a large number of books and a lot of useful advice. If you follow the ideas, who knows what great things and feelings could come into your life. Also, all that information and advice will start to open up your mind. You will start to see more chances in your life. Now, you might think something like this: 1. I really don't have the money... Answer: Visit your public library or search the database (数据库). Or look for books that are used in places like amazon.com. 2. I really don't have the time...
