    Directions:

    Read the text,match the items(61~65)to one of the statements(A to G)given below. Mark your answers on ANSWER SHEET 1.

    The house next door had been empty for so long that we had quite forgotten what it was like to have neighbours. One day,however,a great furniturevan drew up near our front gate,and in a short time,tables,chairs,beds,pictures,and numerous other things were heaped up on the pavement. A small car arrived out of which emerged seven people:a man,a woman,and five children of various ages. The children hurried out and began laughing loudly as the whole family trooped into the house. Windows were flung open;furniture was put into place;and little faces peered inquisitively at us over the fence and disappeared. It was our first introduction to the Robinsons.

    Though we became good friends with our new neighbours,we often irritated by them. We lent them so many things that we never quite knew whether something had been lost or lent. Our garden became an unsafe place:little boys dressed as cowboys or Indians would leap up from behind bushes,point wooden pistols at us and order us to put our hands up. Sometimes our lives were spared;at others,we were mown down pitilessly,in cold blood,at point_blank range,with a sharp “Bang!Bang!”Even more dangerous were the arrows that occasionally came sailing over the garden fence. They had no sooner fallen,than Robin Hood would appear to retrieve them,dragging his unwilling sister,Maid Marian,behind him.

    But we did not always go in fear of our lives. The Robinsons were friendly and helpful and when we left our house for the holidays,we knew we had nothing to fear so long as our neighbours were about. We understood what it was to have company in the long,friendless,winter evenings when Mrs. Robinson would drop in for a cup of tea and a chat;or when Mr. Robinson would lean against the fence and talk endlessly with father about gardening problems. The plot next door which had been so unsightly,so overgrown with weeds,blossomed in time into a delightful garden;and the empty house,so long deserted,was flooded with life and laughter.

    Now match each of the items(61 to 65)to the appropriate statement.

    Note:there are two extra statements.

    Statements

    61. Our garden [A] were naughty but lovely.

    62. The neighbour‘s garden [B] was soon in good order.

    63. The Robinsons [C] It was the children‘s favourite place.

    64. The children [D] seldom talked with each other.

    65. The house next door [E] were on good terms with the neighbour.

    [F] which was once deserted now flourished.

    [G] were very much annoying.
