  17.Read the following paragraph and underline the topic sentence.

  The central symbol for Canada is undoubtedly survival, a multi-faceted and adaptable idea. For early explorers and settlers, it meant bare survival in the face of ‘hostile’ elements and natives: carving out a place and a way of keeping alive. But the word can also suggest survival of a crisis or disaster, like a hurricane or a wreck, and many Canadian poems have this kind of survival as a theme; what you might call ‘grim’ survival as opposed to ‘bare’ survival. For French Canada after the English took over it became cultural survival, hanging on as a people, retaining a religion and a language under an alien government. And in English Canada now while the Americans are taking over it is acquiring a similar meaning. There is another use of the word as well: a survival can be a vestige(痕迹) of a vanished order which has managed to persist after its time is past, like a primitive reptile. This version crops up in Canadian thinking too, usually among those who believe that Canada is obsolete.

  18.Read the following paragraph carefully and select the best topic sentence from the four possible answers that follow the paragraph.

  Read the following paragraph and cross out the irrelevant sentences.

  As her wedding date approached, I think that I was almost as excited as my sister. She claims she did not sleep at all the week before the wedding, and I don‘t really think I did either. Usually I go to bed about 10∶30 and sleep until around 7:30. I know that at least two of those nights we sat up all night reviewing plans, checking to see that we had done everything on our “to do” list. Two days before the wedding, my excitement had reached such a peak that I didn’t even eat. I usually enjoy eating a lot of candies every day. Maybe I had borrowed love from my sister and was living on it. but I just went sailing through the day, full of energy and not the least bit hungry. On the day of the wedding, I was up at 4:30 in the morning, shouting at everyone to get up, this was the day. I even began to get dressed for the wedding an hour before my sister did. And after I was dressed in my bridesmaid‘s gown, I couldn’t sit down. I just paced the floor - for an entire hour. I don‘t think I could take having a sister get married very often.
