Henry Ford was the first person to build cars which were cheap，strong and fast．He was able to se11 millions of cars because he could produce them in large numbers at a time；that is，he made many cars of the same kind．Ford’s father hoped that his son would become a farmer，but the young man did not like the idea and he went to Detroit（底特律）where he worked as a mechanic（机械师）．By the age of 29，in 1892，he had built his first car．However，the car made in this way，the famous “ Model T ” did not appear until 1908.

Many of the expressions using water have different kinds of meaning in English. “Throwing cold water” means “not to like an idea”.
For example，you want to buy a new car because the old one has some problems but your parents throw cold water on the idea, because they think a new car costs too much.
“Water over the dam” is another expression about a past event. It’s something that finishes and it can’t be changed．
The expression comes from the idea——water has run over a dam and it can’t be brought back again . When a friend is troubled by a mistake he has made, you might tell him to forget about it．You can say “It’s water over the dam”.
“Be in hot water” was used five hundred years ago to mean being in trouble．One story says it got the meaning from throwing hot water down on enemies attacking a town．That happens no longer，but we still get into hot water.
When we are in hot water，we are in trouble．It can be any kind of trouble，serious or not serious．A person who breaks a rule can be in hot water with the police．A young boy can be in hot water with his mother if he walks in a house with dirty shoes.

45.What’s the best title of this passage?
Man has a big brain. He can think, learn and speak. Scientists thought that men are different from animals because they can think and learn. They know now that dogs, cats and birds can learn too. They are beginning to understand that. They make noises when they are afraid, or angry or unhappy. Apes(猿) can understand some things more quickly than human, one or two of them have learnt a few words. But they can not join words to make sentences. They can not think like us because they have no language. Language is a wonderful thing. Man has been able to build a modern world because he has language. Every child can speak his own language very well when he is four or five, —but no animal learns to speak. How do children learn it ? Scientists do not really know. What happens inside our body when we speak? They do not know. They only know that man can speak because he has a brain.
