Some people make you feel comfortable when they are around. You spend an hour with them and feel as if you have known them half your life. These people have something in common. And once we know what it is, we can try to do it ourselves.
How is it done? Here are several skills that good talkers have. If you follow the skills, they’ll help you put people at their ease, and make friends with them quickly.
First of all, good talkers ask questions. Almost anyone, no matter how shy he is, will answer a question. One well-known businesswoman says, “At business lunches, I always ask people what they did that morning. It’s a common question, but it will get things going.” From there you can move on to other matters—sometimes to really personal questions. And how he answers will let you know how far you can go.
Second, once good talkers have asked questions, they listen to the answers. This point seems clear, but it isn’t. Your questions should have a point and help to tell what sort of person you are talking to. And to find out, you really have to listen carefully and attentively.
Real listening at least means some things. First it means not to change the subject of conversation. If someone sticks to one topic, you can take it as a fact that he’s really interested in it. Real listening also means not just listening to words, but to tones of voice. If the voice sounds dull, then, it’s time for you to change the subject.
Finally, good talkers know well how to deal with the occasion of parting. If you’re saying good-bye, you may give him a firm handshake and say, “I’ve really enjoyed meeting you.” If you want to see that person again, don’t keep it a secret. Let people know what you feel, and they may walk away feeling as if they’ve known you half their life.
36. Asking questions might be a quite good and suitable way _______.
A. for you to make more and more new friends
B. to begin your business talks
C. to get the conversation going smoothly
D. for you to make a deep and lasting impression on others
37. After having asked somebody a question, it’ll be polite of you to _______.
A. make clear what kind of person he is
B. listen to his reply attentively
C. wait quietly and patiently for his answer
D. go on asking him more questions
38. Generally speaking, good talkers are persons who _______.
A. are good at making any topic interesting
B. never talk too much or too little
C. always speak in a gentle way
D. know how and when they should change the topic of the talk
39. If you really take delight in meeting someone again, _______.
A. you may take him as your lifelong trustworthy friend
B. it seems necessary for you to let him know it
C. it’s proper for you to give him a second handshake
D. it’ll be helpful for you to have further understanding of him
Making an advertisement for television often costs more than a movie. For example, a two-hour movie costs $6 million to make. A TV commercial （商业广告）can cost more than $6000 a second. And that does not include cost of paying for air time(电视节目开始的时间). Which is more valuable, the program or the ad? In terms of money – and making money is what television is all about– the commercial is by far the more important.
Research, market testing, talent, time and money—all come together to make us want to buy a product. No matter how bad we think a commercial is, it works. The sales of Charm went up once the ads began. TV commercials actually buy their way into our head. We, in turn, buy the product.
And the ads work because so much time and attention are given to them. Here are some rules of commercial ad making. If you want to get the low middle-class buyer, make sure the announcer has a tough, manly voice. Put some people in the ad who work with their hands. If you want to sell to upper-class audience, make sure that the house, the furniture, and the hair style are the types that the group identifies(识别) with. If you want the buyer feel superior to the character selling the product, then make that person so stupid or silly that everyone will feel great about himself or herself.
We laugh at commercials. We don’t think we pay that much attention to them. But facts show we are kidding（哄骗，嘲弄）ourselves. The making of a commercial that costs so much money is not kid stuff. It’s big, big business. And it’s telling us what to think, what we need, and what to buy. To put it simply, the TV commercial is a form of brainwashing.
40. TV commercials are more important than other programs to television because _______.
A. they bring in great profits(利润)
B. they require a lot of money to make
C. they are not difficult to produce
D. they attract more viewers than other programs
41. The purpose of all the efforts made in turning out TV commercials is _______.
A. to persuade people to buy the product
B. to show how valuable the product is
C. to test the market value of the product
D. to make them as interesting as TV movies
42. From the rules set for making commercial ads, we can see that_______.
A. the lower-middle-class buyer likes to work with his hand
B. the more stupid the characters, the more buyers of the product
C. ad designers attract different people with different skills
D. an upper-class buyer is more interested in houses and furniture than a lower-middle-class buyer
43. It is believed by the writer that_______.
A. few people like to watch TV commercials
B. TV commercials are a good guide to buyers
C. TV commercials often make people laugh
D. people do not think highly of TV commercials

Thirteen vehicles lined up last March to race across the Mojave Desert，seeking a million in prize money. To win，they had to finish the 142¬miles race in less than 10 hours.
Teams and watchers knew there might be no winners at all，because these vehicles were missing a key part—drivers.
DARPA，the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency，organized the race as part of a push to develop robotic vehicles for future battlefields. But the Grand Challenge，as it was called，just proved how difficult it is to get a car to speed across an unfamiliar desert without human guidance. One had its brake lock up in the starting area. Another began by throwing itself onto a wall. Another got tied up by bushes near the road after 1.9 miles.
One turned upside down. One took off in entirely the wrong direction and had to be disabled by remote(远距离的) control. One went a little more than a mile and rushed into a fence；another managed to go for six miles but stuck on a rock. The “winner，” if there was any，reached 7.8 miles before it ran into a long，narrow hole，and the front wheels caught on fire.
“You get a lot of respect for natural abilities of the living things，” says Reinhold Behringer，who helped design two of the car ¬size vehicles for a company called Sci¬Autonics. “Even ants(蚂蚁) can do all these tasks effortlessly. Its very hard for us to put these abilities into our machines.”
The robotic vehicles，though with necessary modern equipment such as advanced computers and GPS guidance，had trouble figuring out fast enough the blocks ahead that a two-¬year¬-old human recognizes immediately. Sure，that very young child，who has just only learned to walk，may not think to wipe apple juice off her face，but she already knows that when theres a cookie in the kitchen she has to climb up the table，and that when she gets to the cookie it will taste good. She is more advanced，even months old，than any machine humans have designed.
48.Watchers doubted if any of the vehicles could finish the race because ______.
A．they did not have any human guidance
B．the road was not familiar to the drivers
C．the distance was too long for the vehicles
D．the prize money was unattractive to the drivers
49.DARPA organized the race in order to ______.
A．raise money for producing more robotic vehicles
B．push the development of vehicle industry
C．train more people to drive in the desert
D．improve the vehicles for future wars
50.From the passage we know “robotic vehicles” are a kind of machines that ______.
A．can do effortlessly whatever tasks living things can
B．can take part in a race across 142 miles with a time limit
C．can show off their ability to turn themselves upside down
D．can move from place to place without being driven by human beings
