Many schools have their art programs removed in an effort to improve test scores and save
money. However, some researchers believe that this is not correct. Students can master some basicskills in art class that they cannot find in a normal classroom. Allow me to share why you have to take art class.
First and most important ,it stimulates creativity (激发创造力). Art schools encourage you tothink outside the box and be creative enough to create something artistic. It can be used not only in art but in life, too Besides, it helps you make the right choice. In art class, you are usually free to do what you want. In every art class, you are required to make decisions that can determine what your painting will turn out to be.
In addition,students can learn the art of critical (批判性的) thinking as a skill of observation (观察). For example, art students find ways to imagine. That is a skill they need to become better readers and problem settlers.
What is more, it is noted that the company' s bosses are actively looking for employees who can think creatively. Creative thinking is one of the most important skills that students can learn in art courses.
Finally, students who are trained in art class have interesting mental habits. They learn how to work on a task for a long time and how to continue to work even if they are discouraged. They are better for creating a link between the classroom and the outside world. In addition, children who do art work are able to look back on their work and make judgments about themselves.
44. Why are art programs removed from many schools?
A. To make students have their own hobbies.
B. To improve students' test scores and save money.
C. To help students master some job skills.
D. To give students more free time.

B. Art programs may bring a lot of money.
C. Art class can help students in many ways.
D. Art teachers should pay more attention to tests.
You know what a hotel is, of course. And perhaps, you also know what a condo is--a residential(居住的) building divided into separate units that are owned by different people. What you may not know is that in some U. S. cities, the two have come together into something called a "condo hotel".
Some condo hotels can now be found in beach and mountain towns and a few small cities.However, none is more famous than the great lOS-year-old Plaza Hotel in New York, on Fifth Avenue across from Central Park. The Plaza closed for repair in 2005. When it reopened two years later, more than half of it had been changed into one of these modern condo hotels.
Here' s how it works : You buy what equals to an apartment (公寓). If it' s at The Plaza, it will cost you between $1.5 million and $9 million. So you own a part of the building. But there' s some inconvinience. You may stay there no more than 120 days a year. The rest of the time, the hotel' s workers can book guests into your place,just as they would in the regular hotel' s rooms. So if you' re lucky and rich,you can now live in really special quarters up to almost one third of the year,while others pay off your mortgage (房贷) the rest of the year.
So far,a great many of the nation's condo hotel units have been purcltased not by rich peoplebut by richer companies, including foreign ones. They want a nice place for their bosses to stay when they're in town or working late at the office.

48. How long can you stay in your own condo hotel unit at most each year?

C. Half a year.

B. It is built for foreign travellers.
C. It is usually sold at a low price.
D. It is owned by different people.
