It was Sharing Day! The teacher had asked the students to bring something interesting to class. Jimmy found the little box he and Dad had made. Inside was a piece of rock, a sand dollar and a shark(鲨鱼)tooth. Nobody could have anything as interesting as these!
In class, Jimmy waited anxiously, hoping to be called on first by the teacher. But Kara was first. She held up a sand dollar. Jimmy's eyes grew big.
"I found this on the beach, "Kara said. "It's interesting. The little holes that make the sand dollar look like a flower are breathing holes. See all the needles? They help the sand dollar move and dig into the sand. "
Jimmy was a little uneasy. Oh, well, he still had his rock and shark tooth.
Then Mark stood up. "This is my favorite rock, called pumice(浮石)。 ”Then Mark dropped the rock into a glass of water. " Look! Pumice is the only rock that floats! "
Jimmy put up his hand and waved, but the teacher called on Justin instead.
"I found this shark tooth in Hawaii last Christmas, "Justin said.
The class was excited, but Jimmy lowered his head.
"Sharks have rows of teeth. Every time a shark loses a tooth, another one takes its place. "
Justin passed the tooth around.
Jimmy heard the teacher call him. He stood on one foot and then the other. "Well, ah, see……my treasure box is interesting! It was just a piece of wood until Dad and I cut it into piece sand finally made a box out of it. It smells good, reminding us of camping. "
"What's inside? "asked Lisa.

D
Nineteen-year-old Melissa Goza couldn't figure out why she failed to get a bank card time and time again. It only became clear when she was unsuccessful while looking for a new job in a Target store: Three different people are using her Social Security number(社会保障号)。
Target is one of the companies using credit(信用)reports when hiring new workers. At least one credit report didn't favor Goza in getting the job. A very low credit rate(评价)was under Goza's Social Security number. Target, as required by law, told Goza why the company couldn't offer her the job.
Sacramento lawyer Jennifer Shaw, a specialist in workplace law, says credit reports are just one more way employers use to find dishonest job seekers. "I think we need to know that, right now, there's more information out there. And that means, there's more information that can be used against us, "said Shaw.
Goza's dark cloud may, however, have a silver lining. Target told her she'd be considered again for the job if she could get a letter from the Social Security Department proving that she's the right owner of the Social Security number.
Now that Goza knows she's suffered from other people's wrongdoings, she will order copies of her credit reports to see what she can do to put things right.
47. What do we know about Goza?
A. She got the job from Target.
B. She has had three bad friends.
C. She doesn't have a bank card yet.
D. She was not honest with Target.
48. What did Target first do when refusing to offer Goza the job?
A. They asked her for credit reports.
B. They told her why she couldn't get the job.
C. They found out her wrongdoings.
D. They reported it to the Social Security Department.
49. What does "a silver lining" in Paragraph 4 probably mean?
A. A hopeful future.
B. A bank report.
C. An official letter.
D. A Social Security number.
50. What does Goza have to do next?
A. Clear up her wrong credit reports.
B. Get a new Social Security number.
C. Find a job in another company.
D. Apply for a new bank card.
