Passage 1Sante Fe, New Mexico multimillionaire Forrest Fenn has always loved a good adventure. As a small child before eight, he and his brother, Skippy, spent summer vacations making explorations in Yellowstone National Park.As a teen, Fenn idolized the decorated World War Ⅱ fighter pilot, called Robin Olds and latter emulated his hero during the Vietnam War as an air force fighter pilot to go to New Mexico and settled there as an arts and antiques dealer, hunting down valuable paintings, rugs, war memorabilia, and other antiques to sell.In 1998, Fenn was diagnose with terminal kidney cancer. As he had always been doing, he conceived a grand adventure that he assumed would be his last one. “I wanted to create some excitement, some hope, before I died,” says Fenn, 82, adding that he also wanted to “get kids out of the game room and off the couch”. With those ideas in his mind, he started to devise a treasure hunt.Little by little, Fenn began stocking a small bronze chest with gold coins, prehistoric bracelets and other valuable things. When his cancer went into remission in 1993, he decided he would carry out his plan anyway.In 2010, Fenn topped off the chest with jewels and valuable stones and hid it somewhere deep in the Rocky Mountains, north of Sante Fe. Later that year, he wrote a poem for his selfpublished memoir, The Thrill of the Chase. It contained nine clues about the treasure box’s whereabouts. One stanza reads like this: Begin it where warm waters halt, and take it in the canyon down. Not far, but too far to walk. Put it below the home of Brown.A few months later, a story about the treasure appeared in a magazine. Since then, Fenn has received thousands of emails from treasure hunters. Some request more clues to the box. But mostly “people thanked me for bringing their family together”, he says with a selfcomforting smile on his face.In April, Fenn told a crowd at an Albuquerque bookstore that two groups of treasure hunters had gotten within 500 feet of the chest. “They walked right by it,” he said.Fenn is confident that the treasure will be unearthed eventually and says it will take the right combination of cunning and perseverance. “It will be discovered by someone who has read the clues carefully and successfully. But nobody is going to happen upon it,” he predicts.He hopes that whoever finds the loot will relish the riches and the adventure of finding them.

请阅读Passage 2, 完成第26～30小题。
Passage 2The ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras is best known today for his mathematical theorem, which haunts the dreams of many geometry students, but for centuries he was also celebrated as the father of vegetarianism. A meatless diet was referred to as a “Pythagorean diet” for years, up until the modern vegetarian movement began in the mid1800s.While Pythagoras was an early proponent of a meatless diet, humans have been vegetarians since well before recorded history. Most anthropologists agree that early humans would have eaten a predominantly plantbased diet; after all, plants can’t run away. Additionally, our digestive systems resemble those of herbivores closer than carnivorous animals. Prehistoric man ate meat, of course, but plants formed the basis of his diet.Pythagoras and his many followers practiced vegetarianism for several reasons, mainly due to religious and ethical objections. Pythagoras believed all living beings had souls. Animals were no exception, so meat and fish were banished from his table. Strangely enough, he also banished a vegetable that has a place of honor on most vegetarian menus today, the humble bean. His followers were forbidden to eat or even touch beans, because he thought beans and humans were created from the same material. Fava beans were especially bad, as they have hollow stems that could allow the souls of the dead to travel up from the soil into the growing beans.While the edict against beans was lifted not long after Pythagoras’ death, his followers continued to eat a meatless diet. His principles influenced generations of academics and religious thinkers, and it was a group of these likeminded individuals who founded the Vegetarian Society in English in the mid1800s. The virtues of temperance, abstinence and selfcontrol were all tied to vegetarian ideals, while lust, drunkenness and general hooliganism all resulted from a diet too rich in meat products. Notable early vegetarians included Leo Tolstoy, George Bernard Shaw, Mahatma Gandhi and American Bronson Alcott, a transcendentalist teacher, reformer and the father of Little Women author Louisa May Alcott.It wasn’t until the 1960s that vegetarianism moved into mainstream American life and the movement’s growth picked up speed in the 1970s when a young graduate student named Francis Moore Lappe wrote a book called Diet for a Small Planet. In it, she advocated a meatless diet not for ethical or moral reasons, but because plantbased foods have much less impact on the environment than meat does. Today, many vegetarians refuse meat because of animal rights issues, or concern over animal treatment, a principle first espoused in Peter Singer’s 1975 work Animal Liberation.

A.A meatless diet was supported and practiced by Pythagoras.
B.After his death, Pythagoras’ followers continued to eat beans.
C.Pythagoras influenced a lot of people who chose not to eat meat.

A.Environmental protection.B.Animal rights.
