A friend of mine told me that when he was a young man,he went to work as a teacher in one of the states of India.One day,he received an invitation to dinner at the ruler's palace.Very pleased,he went to tell his colleagues.They laughed, and told him the meaning of the invitation.They had all been invited,and each person who was invited had to bring with him a certain number of silver and gold coins.The number of coins varied according to the person's position in the service of the government.My friend's income was not high,so he did not have much to pay.Each person bowed before the ruler,his gold went onto one hip,his silver went onto another hip.And in this way he paid his income tax for the year.This was a simple way of collecting income tax.The tax on property was also collected simply.The ruler gave a man the power to collect a tax from each owner of land or property in a certain area,if this man promised to pay the ruler a certain amount of money.Of course,the tax collector managed to collect more money than he paid to the ruler.The difference between the sum of money he collected and the sum of money he gave to the ruler was his profit.
11.What do we know about the speaker's friend??
12.What was the real purpose of the ruler's invitation??
13.What does the passage say about the tax collectors??
Around the year 1000 A.D,some people from northwest India began to travel westward.Nobody knows why.After leaving their homes,they did not settle down again,but spent their lives moving from one place to another,their later generations are called the Romany people,or Gypsies.There're Gypsies all over the world,and many of them are still travelling with no fix homes.There are about 8,000,000 of them,including 3,000,000 in eastern Europe.Gypsies sometimes have a hard time in the countries where they travel,because they are different,people may be afraid of them,look down on them, or think that they are criminals. The Nazies treated the Gypsies cruelly,like the Jews,and nobody knows how many of them died in Hitler
's deathcamps.Gypsies have their own language Romany.They liked music and dancing.And they often work in fairs and travelling shows.Travelling is very importantto them,and many Gypsies are unhappy if they have to stay in one place.Becauseof this,it is difficult for Gypsy children to go to school,and Gypsies are often unable to read and write.In some places,the education authorities tried to arrange special travelling schools for Gypsy children,so that they can get the same education as other children.
14.Why did the ancestors of Gypsies leave their home??
15.What is the attitude of some people toward Gypsies??
16.What measure has been taken to help Gypsy children??
As the car industry develops,traffic accidents have become as familiar as the common code.Yet,their cause and control remain a serious problem that is difficult to solve.Experts have long recognized that this discouraging problem has multiple causes.At the very least,it is a problem that involves three factors:the driver,the vehicle,and the roadway.If all drivers exercise good judgement at all times,there would be few accidents.But that is rather like saying that if all people were honest,there would be no crime.Improved design has helped make highways much safer.But the type of accidents continued to rise because of human failure and an enormous increase in the numbers of automobiles on the road.Attention is now turning increasingly to the third factor of the accident,the car itself.Sincep eople assume that the accidents are bound to occur,they want to know how cars can be built better to protect the drivers.?
17.What does the speaker think of the causes of automobile accidents??
18.What measure has been taken to reduce car accidents??
19.What remains an important factor for the rising number of road accidents??
20.What is the focus of people's attentions today according to the passage?
