It’s so beautiful outside that spending the day in the office would be very boring. So why not take the vacations off?
A new survey（调查）found that 31% of U.S workers don’t always take all of their vacation days. Americans have 12 vacation days on average（平均）each year，but they give back an average of 3 vacation days each year. They have fewer vacation days than workers in any other country surveyed.
Workers in Sweden receive an average of 25 vacation days a year，but they can’t find time to use them all. More workers there return vacation days than any other country surveyed.
The French take their vacations seriously. French workers get an average of 39 vacation days，and 40% plan to take at least one there-to-four-week vacation.
British workers have the longest working week in Europe，with 23 vacation days --the shortest vacation. So they feel overworked. 75% say their weekends or vacations are too short and 40% would
a day’s pay for one more vacation day.
1．Which country has the most workers working during the vacation days?
A. America. B. France. C. Sweden. D. Great Britain.
2．What does the word “sacrifice” mean in the last sentence?
A. Use up. B. Put up. C. Take up. D. Give up.
In 1801 thousands of people stood on the banks of a river in France. They were watching an
boat. It had no sails. It had no cabins. It was just a bare shell of a boat. Inside were two men, Robert Fulton and his helper. Before the eyes of everyone, the boat went under water.
Would the boat come up again? The people waited five minutes－ten minutes－fifteen minutes. But the boat was still out of sight. No men could stay under water for so long and live! Five more minutes passed. Then –many feet from where the boat had gone down－something was coming up! It was the odd-looking boat. The top of the boat opened up and two men looked out. Robert Fulton had shown everyone that a boat could stay under water for a long time. He also proved that it could move under water.
What made the boat go under water and come up again? Robert Fulton had opened a small door. The water came in fast and filled a large tank inside the boat. This made the boat heavy enough to go under. When Fulton was ready to come up again, he pumped the water out of the tank. Now the tank had only air in it and the boat was light enough to rise. The submarines of today go down and come up in the same way.
Just six years later, in 1807, many people were watching another stranger boat. This time it was on the Hudson River in New York. This boat had a long pipe sticking up in the air. From the pipe came heavy black smoke. On each side of the boat was a large wheel. On each wheel were paddles. Steam would make the wheels turn and make the boat move. Hardly anyone believed that the boat would work. But Fulton had done it again!
3. Mr. Robert Fulton’s boat was under the water for such a long time that all the people on the banks felt ______.
A. frightened B. surprised C. interested D. excited
4. We can know from the text that a submarine comes up by ______.
A. it is not mentioned in the article.
B. turning the paddles on the wheel
C. opening the small door on the top
D. pumping the water out of the tank
