    More than 10 years ago, it was difficult to buy a tasty pineapple. The fruits that made it to the UK were green on the outside and, more often than not, hard with an unpleasant taste within. Then in 1966, the Del Monte Gold pineapple produced in Hawaii first hit our shelves.
    The new type of pineapple looked more yellowy-gold than green. It was slightly softer on the outside and had a lot of juice inside. But the most important thing about this new type of pineapple was that it was twice as sweet as the hit-and-miss pineapples we had known. In no time, the Del Monte Gold took the market by storm, rapidly becoming the world’s best-selling pineapple variety, and delivering natural levels of sweetness in the mouth, up until then only found in tinned pineapple.
   In nutrition it was all good news too. This nice tasting pineapple contained four times more vitamin C than the old green variety. Nutritionists said that it was not only full of vitamins, but also good against some diseases. People were understandably eager to be able to buy this wonderful fruit. The new type of pineapple was selling fast, and the Del Monte Gold pineapple rapidly became a fixture in the shopping basket of the healthy eater.
   Seeing the growing market for its winning pineapple, Del Monte tried to keep market to itself. But other fruit companies developed similar pineapples. Del Monte turned to law for help, but failed. Those companies argued successfully that Del Monte’s attempts to keep the golden pineapple for itself were just a way to knock them out of the market. 
1.We learn from the text that the new type of pineapple is __________.
A.green outside and sweet inside
B.good-looking outside and soft inside
C.yellowy-gold outside and hard inside
D.a little soft outside and sweet inside
2.Why was the new type of pineapple selling well?
A.It was rich in nutrition and tasted nice.
B.It was less sweet and good for health.
C.It was developed by Del Monte.
D.It was used as medicine.
3.The underlined word in Paragraph 3 probably refers to something _________.
A.that people enjoy eating
B.that is always present
C.that is difficult to get
D.that people use as a gift
4.We learn from the last paragraph that Del Monte _________.
A.slowed other companies to develop pineapples
B.succeeded in keeping the pineapple for itself
C.tried hard to control the pineapple market
D.planned to help the other companies

根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项,选项中有两项为多余选项。
Public Speaking Training
    ·Get a coach
    ①, so get help. Since there are about a billion companies out there all ready to offer you public speaking training and courses, here are some things to look for when deciding the training that's right for you.
    ·Focus on positives
    Any training you do to become more effective at public speaking should always focus on the positive aspects of what you already do well. Nothing can hurt confidence more than being told that you aren't doing well. ②, so good public speaking training should develop those instead of telling you what you shouldn't do.
    ·③.
    If you find a public speaking course that looks as though it's going to give you lots of dos and don'ts, walk away! Your brain is so full of what you're going to be talking about. ④. As far as we're concerned, there are basically no hard and fast rules about public speaking. Your audience can be your friends.
    ·You are a special person not a clone
    Most importantly, good public speaking training should treat you as a special one, with your own personal habits. ⑤. Your training course should help you bring out your personality, not try to turn you into someone you're not.
A.You aren't like anybody else
B.Turn your back on too many rules
C.You already do lots of things well
D.Check the rules about dos and don'ts
E.Whatever the presentation, public speaking is tough
F.The one thing you don't want is for them to fall asleep
G.So trying to force a whole set of rules into it will just make things worse.

    Christine was just a girl in one of my classes. I never knew much about her except for that she was strange. She didn’t talk many.Her hair was black and purple, and she worn black sports shoesand a black sweater, although in the summer. She was, in fact, rather attractively, and she never seemed to care how the rest of usthought about her. Like the rest of my classmate, I didn’treally want to get closest to her. It was only when we did their chemistry project together that I begin to understand why Christine dressed the way she did .
