In March 2013, on a rainy night，my partner Reece remembered that he had forgotten a box in his car and went out to get it. On his way back inside he noticed a small shadow moving on the driveway.

We named the hedgehog Alf because, just like the TV show character of the，80s，this little hedgehog was Not only did he learn to eat his dinner and drink water from his bowls, but he also learnt to wait for us inside and also jump into his pet carrier whenever we took him out with us.

One evening, Reece set up a video call for me from my hospital bed and I felt extremely happy when I saw him appear on my cell phone.
When I told Alf that I was okay and that I would be home soon, he started moving his head and reaching out his arms as if trying to touch me through the screen.

On her first day tutoring students from low-income families at an after-school program in New York City, A lyssa Kapasi noticed how many kids were lining up for free sandwiches and fruit in the cafeteria. One of the teachers explained that many of these students didn’t get enough to eat at home, so a school lunch or an after-school meal might be the most food they would get all day.
Kapasi，who attends a private high school, was shocked. What’s more, she was determined to help .“I want my classmates to understand that if you see a problem, you don’t have to wait to be an adult to fix it，” says Kapasi. She and a group of friends are now putting their programming skills to work to create an app called Food for Thought, which will allow parents，students，and even kindhearted strangers to donate to a lunch account for a student in need at a nearby school.
About 20 million American kids receive free lunches. Two million more qualify for reduced-price meals, and those students’ families have to pay for part of their food. When they don’t have the money on any given day, the students might have to settle for small amounts of “alternative meal” such as a cheese sandwich.
One smart feature of the app — which is being funded by corporate and social investors, and a GoFundMe page 一 is that it provides anonymity (匿名)to lunch recipients and gives.To receive financial help，a family will need only a recommendation from school headmasters, and no one else has to know,

The Ventura County Public Works Agency (VCPWA) has conducted a study to observe the effectiveness of hawks (鹰)in controlling wild rodent (啮齿动物)populations because these ground rodents cause great damage to dams and other flood control channels every year. This
study was done in order to discover if these birds could be more effective than poisons to control rodent populations in California.
Unfortunately,these poisons are not only effecting the rodent populations; other larger animal in the area have also been poisoned in this process. Dead foxes, wolves, and mountain lions in the area have been found with poisons in their blood.
This is the first. time that any agency has tested the influence of these birds on wild rodent populations.Over the course of 17
months ,the agency freed hawks into highly populated rodent areas and studied the effects of their presence on the rodent populations. These birds were able to reduce the populations safely, eliminating the need for poisons in the area.
According to this information, as well as the poisoned blood found in dead larger animals in the area, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors order all county agencies to discontinue the use of poisons.
This study has not only proven that these birds are an environmentally-friendly substitute to using poisons, but that they are more effective than using harmful poisons in the circa. The VCPWA showed in this study that using these birds to hunt the rodents actually reduced damage by 50 percent when compared to using poisons.
“We believe the study is the first to calculate the great impact of attracting birds and finds a natural, chemical-free way to control the rodents，” said Karl Novak, VCPWA Deputy Director of Operations and Maintenance. “We think that comprehensive monitoring and continued expansion of the hawk program will result in cost effective and environmentally safe rodent control.”
32. What were hawks used to do in the VCPWA study?
A. Hunt foxes. B.Test poisons.
C.Protect dams. D.Kill rodents.
33. What does the underlined word “eliminating” in Paragraph 3 mean?

C.Meeting. D. Showing.
34. What is Karl Novak’s attitude to the VCPWA study?
A. Cautious. B. Favorable.
C. Ambiguous. D. Disapproving.
35. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. Replacing Poisons with Hawks for Rodent Control
B. Protecting Large Animals in Ventura County
C.Defending Dams Against Rodent Populations
D. Rescuing Hawk Populations in the Wild Area
If you want to be productive, you must complete work. Almost everything we do has many stages to completion. 36 Farmers can’t sell their grain until it is harvested. Car makers can’t sell cars that have made it 90% of the way through the production line.
Now all those things require starting, but if you have work in progress, the most valuable thing you can do is to pick something and finish it. Finishing is where you start benefiting from the value you’ve created, I've noticed that many successful people aren’t the ones who are the smartest or have the best ideas. 37 A good idea fully carried out is better than a great idea that never gets completed.
38 Not necessarily, but if you don't think something is finishing, be honest with yourself and end the project. Don1! leave hundreds of half-finished efforts lying around physically or mentally acting like you are going to come back and pick them up. 39.Sometimes if you've put significant effort into a project, you may still benefit from finishing it even if you wouldn’t start it again based on changed circumstances.
40 Someone who focus on finishing will look for ways to get value from their final goal. For example, a community college degree as a step toward a four-year degree locks in some value from your education in two years that you can use for your four-year degree.
What projects do you have that are currently in progress? Can you find something and finish it?
A. We have to start working with firm beliefs.
B. If you need to drop something, do so wisely.
C. Does this mean you need to finish everything you start?
D.We also aim to establish ourselves with some good work.
E.Actually you don’t create value until you finish the last stage.
F.Instead, they are the ones who do their best to complete their ideas.
G. When you focus on finishing, it influences how you manage your work.

I have taught in China for about two months now. The biggest chal lenge for me 61 (be) that sometimes plans in China change unexpectedly 62 (compare) to the British way of life.
In China it is common to be asked to attend an event last minute, For example，three days 63 (fcarly) a fellow teacher invited me to deliver a spontaneous (即席的)speech to room of 250 students. As you can imagine, at first this cultural difference was difficult 64 .
(understand), especially since in the UK most arrangements 65 (make) a week ahead!
However once you adapt 66 the Chinese lifestyle and accept that in China no plan is definite and that everything can change 67 (sudden), you begin to relax more. These differences are not bad, and in fact help me develop many different 68 (skill), including public speaking.
I am often reminded of the many wonderful aspects of China, 69 never fail to amass me, such as the overcrowded buses，The lights of the city, the kindness of strangers and of course the "change of plan”! These differences are what makes China such 70 interesting place and makes my experience so exciting!

M: Yes. She ought to be leaving New York very soon, because her husband has taken a job in Los Angeles.
M: Are you sure you’ve corrected all the mistakes in the paper?
W: Perhaps I’d better read it through again.
M: Does this bill belong to you?
W: Oh, thanks. I’ve just lost five pounds.
M: I’m glad that I’ve found the owner; otherwise I would have to go to the Lost and Found.
M: We’d better hurry. I think that’s our flight.
W: Have I got time to get a newspaper?
M: Well, I don’t think we have time.
W: All right, well, you take that bag and I’ll take this one.
M: Do you want your television repaired?
W: Yes, but not by the man you suggested.
M: Why not? The repairmen are very good and the charges are so reasonable.
W: That may be, but I couldn’t find the place.
M: But you couldn’t miss it. I told you it is at the first right after the railroad bridge.
W: I took that. I went to the end of the road. There is no such place.

W: Hey, thanks a lot.
M: No problem.
M: Is it true that you don’t swim at all now?
W: I’m afraid so, I’m too old.
M: But you are only twenty.
W: That’s too old for a swimmer. If I swam in an international competition now, I wouldn’t win. So I’d rather not swim at all.
M: But don’t you enjoy swimming?
W: I used to when I was small. But if you enter for big competitions you have to work very hard. I used to get up at 6 to get to the pool. I had to train every day. I had to train before school, after school and on weekends. I swam thirty-five miles every week!
M: But you were so famous at fifteen. And look at all those cups.
W: It’s true that I did have some wonderful memories. The Olympics were very exciting. But I missed some important things too. While other girls were playing, I was swimming.

M: Well, did he take care of it for you?
W: Yes, but he said it would take a lot more work to do a really good job.
M: What does he mean by a really good job?
W: He said we need new electric wires throughout the house and a lot of other things.
M: Did he tell you how much it would cost?
W: Yes, about a thousand dollars.
M: A thousand dollars? That’s a lot of money. And just when we need to get some work done on our car, too.
It was 2:05 in the afternoon. When I entered the classroom, I was surprised to see a video camera. Our class teacher was operating the camera, and my classmates were all talking among themselves slowly. Most of us had never been in front of a video camera before, so we were quite nervous. As for myself, I had once faced one at home; my uncle was shooting when we were celebrating my sister’s birthday. But this was completely different. We had to talk about our articles as if we were reading news on TV. The funny thing was that every time I tried to face the camera and talk about my article, I forgot the article and couldn’t resist looking down at it. It was a completely different experience for me, thanks to our class teacher.

Games in class
Playing computer games is getting serious. Washington teacher Tammie Schrader is so enthusiastic about computer games in education that she thinks they can be used to teach programming skills which will help students in college- starting in middle school.
Canadian teacher Justin Holladay wrote a few simple games to help his students practise math skills, and when they caught on, he started his own company to create more of them.
And the University of Washington’s Zoran Popovic got more than 4,000 Washington students to master their lessons this spring by playing a computer game for just a few hours.
The growing availability(可获得性) of inexpensive tablet computers and a new generation of young teachers who grew up playing on computers have spurred (激发)interest in games for serious purpose.
“Six or seven years ago, selling games to schools was forbidden,” said David Martz of Muzzy Software, a Boston, US Company that produces games for publishers such as McGraw-Hill. Now he said schools are interested in the promise of games-perhaps because gaming is so much more popular.
Software and education companies have tried for many years to combine youngsters’ passion for computer games with educational progress, without much success.
Popovic thinks the first efforts to combine games with education fell flat because they were created by commercial companies. These companies were more interested in selling products than seeing students master a skill.
Teachers say there are some pretty good games in the marketplace now.
Holladay, the math teacher from Alberta, Canada, began moving paper-based math games to the iPad, building games that allowed students to compete with each other and giving them instant feedback(反馈) on their progress.
The games reinforced (强化) the lessons he was teaching, and his students had fun playing, he said. “They were a lot more engaged(参与)”.
21. What factors have helped promote computer games in schools according to the article?
a. The affordability of tablet computers.
b. The preferences of young teachers
c. The advertisements of commercial companies
d. Parents’ support
e. Better games being produced
A. a, c, d B. a, b, e C. b, c, d D. b. d. e
22. What is Holladay’s attitude to the idea of using computer games in class?
A. It is not as helpful as people thought.
B. He allows students to learn in a fun way.
C. It reduces the interaction between teachers and students.
D. It sounds good but is inconvenient to get feedback from students.
23. What does “fell flat” in Paragraph7 mean?
A. Ended up in failure. B. Lost plenty of money.
C. Was a huge success. D. Gained wide popularity.
British children generally learn how to ride a bike at a young age. I am an exception to that rule. It’s not my dad’s fault—he tried to teach me. I remember cycling around the neighbourhood. To be honest, though, I never saw the appeal. One of my earliest memories is falling from my bike and into some spiny(多刺的) plants. I definitely didn’t want to repeat that.
So I stopped learning. My dad wasn’t going to waste his time teaching someone who didn’t want to be taught. Time passed and I accepted that I couldn’t ride a bike. It never affected my life in high school because I lived close enough to walk.
I never felt like I was missing out until I couldn’t go on a bike ride with friends in Byron Bay because I was only confident that I could go on a flat surface in a generally straight line. So when the opportunity came up to bike the wall of Xi’an, I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it and make up for missed time. So, with a friend who is very patient, I got on the bike. Instantly nothing came flooding back to me, I had absolutely no idea how to start! “Push off with one foot hard” was my instruction. It sounded simple enough but it just would not happen. Until something clicked and suddenly I was off, going in a straight line on a flat surface and managing to avoid the Chinese tourists who obviously found exaltation on my face.
At 22 years old, I finally learnt how to ride a bike, and nothing can hold me back.

Indian scientists have designed a new device and they hope it will solve one of the biggest problems with the use of solar energy. They call the device a solar tree. Solar trees have metal ‘branches’ which are just from a tall pole at different levels. Each branch holds a solar panel. These panels(面板) have large metal boards that collect energy from the sun and turn it into electricity.
The shape of the solar trees makes it possible to fit more solar panels in a space than traditional systems do. This means less land would be needed to produce solar energy. It takes about four square meters of space to produce energy which may otherwise need 400 square meters of space. So almost 100 times the space is saved, which is very valuable.
Buying land to develop roads, factories and other infrastructure(基础设施) has been a troublesome issue in India. Disagreements often lead to protests(抗议) by those forced to move.
Scientists believe the energy a solar tree collects will be enough to power five homes. The space-saving tree will make it easier to provide solar energy for homes in cities, they say. The trees will also take less space from farmers in rural areas. Solar trees will collect more energy than normal panels on the tops of buildings.
India is the world’s third largest producer of greenhouse gases. The country promised to reduce its rate of greenhouse gas production at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris last year. India said, by 2030, it would reduce its rate of greenhouse gas production by one third over its levels in 2005.
The country’s promise depends heavily on increasing solar energy. India has set a difficult goal of getting 40 percent of its total energy from renewable sources by 2030.
28. What is unique about the new solar device?
A.Its color. B.The way it works.
C.Its shape. D.The place where it is fixed.
29. What’s the major advantage of the solar device?
A. Its price is lower.
B. It can work in rainy weather.
C. It sends electricity directly to farmers.
D.It takes up less land and produce more electricity.
30. Which of the following can replace the underlined word “troublesome” in Paragraph 3 ?
A. new B. major C. special D. difficult
31. Why is the greenhouse gas production mentioned in the text?
A. The warming climate gets serious.
B. The solar device can help reduce it.
C. India has a difficult task to complete.
D. India will mainly use the new energy.
Rome, Paris and New York are the world’s top fashion cities, all of which have produced some of the top trends, from high-low skirts to the hottest new shoes. But have you ever wondered about the negative ideas that they’ve produced?
In April 2017, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in Britain banned an ad from Gucci that featured models dancing around and having fun because they were all extremely thin. Banning ads due to unhealthy weight isn’t new. The ASA banned an ad in 2016 for the same reason. In France, it has been a rule that models are to provide a doctor’s note proving that they are at healthy weight.
So what is healthy weight for models? Twenty years ago, the average fashion model weighed 8% less than average weight. Today, it weighs 23% less. When is it okay for anyone including models to weigh less than average?
The images of models promote the idea that being at unhealthy weight will help one gain the richness and the benefits that the models do. This provides a standard of beauty and richness; therefore, people who want to achieve those things may attempt to obtain them through unhealthy ways. People may think that they are overweight, due to the images of model’s thin figures. They see something wrong with their bodies, whether they are overweight or not. This is a key factor to a lowered body image, low self esteem(自尊) depression and possibly even eating disorders.
I’m not blaming the fashion industry by any means. It’s not their fault that many people look up to the models and expect to live a life like theirs. I’m glad that the ASA is raising its voices when discussing the growing issue of body images in the fashion industry. By banning the photos and videos, speaking out against them and requesting them to provide doctors’ notes, it’s pushing for the idea that the traditional fashion industry’s body image demands should be questioned and changed.
32. Why was one of Gucci’s ads banned?
A. Its models had unhealthy weight.
B. None of its models had a doctor’s note.
C. Its models didn’t act according to the rules.
D. Its models were dancing in an unhealthy way.
33. The figures mentioned in Paragraph 3 show that _______.
A. people don’t know when models weigh less
B. many women are on a diet to become models
C. healthy weight for models hasn’t been decided
D. models are becoming thinner as time goes by
34. The possible purpose of the NSA’s measures is to _______.
A. stress the importance of healthy weight
B. voice people’s opinions of models’ body images
C. introduce new standards of models’ body images
D. challenge traditional standards in the fashion industry
35. What is the author’s tone of writing this text?
A. Objective. B. Humorous. C. Negative. D. Critical.
Are you afraid of math? If yes, you aren’t alone. A dislike of math can begin as early as first grade, and be with you for life. 36 Actually, more and more people get uninterested in math at school.
If you suffer from math anxiety, it isn’t because you “just have no ability to study math well”; it is because, at some point, someone or something destroyed your confidence. 37 However, if you work hard to gain confidence again, you’ll have the ability to understand as much math as you need to.
38 For this, you should learn differently. For example, check out books from the library or study on the Internet to master the fundamental(基本的) principles. Do exercises you can do without a struggle to build up your confidence. It is also very important to actually understand what the formula (公式) is about, and why you are using that formula instead of another one.
Though you may feel it difficult to study math well, don’t give up so easily. You can begin by preparing for the class ahead of time. 39 Take excellent notes and read them after class. Do all the required homework and exercises at the recommended time. 40 Also you can turn to classmates who study math very well.
In short, the ability to be good at math isn’t born with, and you have to try hard, start early, and give yourself permission to fail.
A. Ask questions during class.
B. Math is useful in our daily life.
C. It is quite common at all age levels.
D. If you still need help, ask for help from teachers.
E. Fortunately, the fear of math can be overcome.
F. In a word, whatever learning method speaks to you, use it.
G. If you think you are bad at math, you’ll probably be bad at math.

Have a big test coming up late in the day? You’ better plan some time for a nap(打盹) before 61 (hit) the books. According to a new study, a little nap time can improve your memorization(记忆)skills 62 (great).
Researchers at University of California, Berkeley asked a group of volunteers to take part in a memorization task in the morning, then a second group in the evening. Some 63 (give) a quiet room to take a 100-minute sleep during the afternoon, while others were not. The difference was 64 (surprise). The sleepers got 20% points higher than those 65 didn’t have the sleep.
“It’s not enough to sleep after learning,” Matthew Walker, one of the 66 (researcher) told Livescience. It turns out that you also need to sleep 67 learning. It’s almost like 68 (clear) out your informational inbox of your e-mail so you can start to receive new e-mails the next day.
So if you want 69 (get) ahead, plan time for a nap. “While sleeping, the brain is very active for things like learning and memorizing, ”says Walker. “I think we should think of sleep as a biological need rather than 70 waste of time.

their elders in person, giving them specially-making gifts. And adults usually give away a red
envelope containing some money to children, that is believed to bring good lucky.
During the NMET this year in Hangzhou, some good-looking women security guards were specially chosen to work for the very important exam. About this, people voice different opinions.
On one hand, some speak highly of it for the following reasons. Firstly, it’s considerate and effective to reduce nervousness. Naturally examinees feel stressed, but they get relaxed with female beauty and gentleness in sight. Moreover, the cheerful and energetic appearance sets a good example to them, reminding them about the expectations from family and society.
On the other hand, others don’t agree. In their view, it is a burden. It’s hard to find so many beautiful guards. Besides, it may miss-lead teenagers to value appearance more than ability.
Personally I think it’s a good idea to take such a new move. Encouraged, examinees can perform better and do their part well in society in the future.

Disease, poverty, hate, love—Charles Dickens’ stories opened his readers’ eyes to the most important themes of his age. Two hundred years later, his stories still speak volumes across the world, proving that Dickens’ legacy (遗产) was far greater than just “great literature”.
February 7 marks the 200th anniversary of the writer’s birthday. To mark this date, BBC writer Alex Hudson listed six things Dickens gave the modern world. Let’s take a look at two of them.
A white Christmas
Dickens is described as “the man who invented Christmas” —not the religious festival, but the cultural aspects that we associate with the festive (喜庆的) season today.
In the early 19th century, Christmas was barely worth mentioning, according to critic and writer Leigh Hunt. The committee which ran the Conservative Party even held ordinary business meetings on Christmas Day—unthinkable in the West nowadays, when everyone, but the most necessary workers takes at least three days off.
Many people believe that Dickens’ popular descriptions of the festive period became a blueprint for generations to come. In his classic novel, A Christmas Carol, he not only put forward the idea of snow at Christmas, but also painted a picture of glowing warmth—“home enjoyments, affections and hopes”.
In his biography of Dickens, Peter Ackroyd wrote, “Dickens can be said to have almost single-handedly created the modern idea of Christmas.”
Dickens was one of the first to take an honest look at the underclass and the poor of Victorian (the period during British Queen Victoria’s reign from 1837 to 1901) London.
He helped popularize the term “red tape” to describe situations where people in power use needless amounts of bureaucracy (官僚作风) in a way that particularly hurts the weaker and poorer members of society.
“Dickensian” has now become a powerful word for describing an unacceptable level of poverty. In 2009, when the president of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers in the UK wanted to talk about poverty in some areas of Britain, she did not use words like “terrible” or “horrific”, but rather described it as “life mirroring the times of Dickens”.
25. The article is mainly about __________.
A. Charles Dickens’ impact on the world.
B. An introduction to Charles Dickens’ classic novels
C. Charles Dickens’ amazing characters
D. Why Charles Dickens is popular across the world
26. Why is Dickens called “the man who invented Christmas”?
A. Because he created the religious festival.
B. Because one of his novels helped to shape Christmas celebrations.
C. Because many of his novels have something to do with Christmas.
D. Because he was the first man to have proposed celebrating Christmas.
27. According to the passage, the underlined phrase “red tape” refers to __________.
A. rules or procedures that are required to accomplish a task
B. a situation in which poor members of society are hurt
C. conflict between people in power and weaker people
D. pointlessly time-consuming official procedures
28. We can learn from the passage that __________.
A. Charles Dickens’ novels reflect the true life at his age
B. everyone can take three days off for Christmas
C. Dickens invented Christmas
D. Dickens gave the modern world six things
We live in a sweet world. The average American kids eat more than 20 teaspoons of sugar per day, and adults eat 50% more sugar today than they did in the 1970s. We all know that too much sugar isn’t good for us. Researchers at the University of Utah used mice to do a study on the bad effects of sugar. They found it could have serious effects on people’s health seriously.
During the 58-week-long study, mice were fed a diet containing 25% more sugar. This percentage equals a healthy human diet along with three cans of soda daily. The team found that these mice were twice as likely to die as mice fed a similar diet without the sugar. Though the mice did not show signs of obesity or high blood pressure, male mice produced 25% fewer offspring (后代) than the other mice.
Scientists often use mice for research because they have a similar genetic (基因的) structure to humans. “Since most substances (物质) that are dangerous in mice are also dangerous in people; it’s likely that those physical problems that cause those mice to have increased deaths also work in people,” says the study author James Ruff of the University of Utah. Findings from this study show bad effects that are not as noticeable as weight gain or heart problems. Sugar can contribute to long-term changes in the body that can change development and even shorten lives.
Different types of sugar have different effects on the human body. Some of the sugar we consume comes from foods we might expect—candy, soda and cookies. But much of the sugar that we eat is hidden. Food companies add large amounts of sugar to items we may not classify as sweets. To help cut down extra sugar consumption, nutrition experts suggest looking at the ingredients on food packages. Cutting sugar out of the American diet altogether may be difficult. But making the effort to control our nation’s desire for sugar will avoid a sweeter future.
29. According to Paragragh 2, we can know ________.
A. mice eating more sugar will live longer
B. the study on mice lasted less than a year
C. the study showed the bad effects of more sugar on mice
D. mice eating more sugar will become fatter and fatter
30. Why did the scientists choose mice to do the study?
A. Because a substance may have the same effects on mice and humans.
B. Because mice have a longer lifespan (寿命) than other animals.
C. Because mice take in the harmful substances easily and quickly.
D. Because mice are sensitive to the sweet taste.
31. Which would be the best title for the passage?
A. Living a sweet life B. Kids eat much more sugar
C. Genetic structure of humans D. Danger of too much sugar
Almost everybody in America will spend a part of his or her life behind a shopping cart. They will, in a lifetime, push the chrome-plated contraptions many miles. But few will know—or even think to ask—who it was that invented them. Sylvan N. Goldman invented the shopping cart in 1937. At that time he was in the supermarket business. Every day he would see shoppers lugging groceries around in baskets they had to carry.
One day Goldman suddenly had the idea of putting baskets on wheels. The wheeled baskets would make shopping much easier for his customers, and would help to attract more business.
On June 4, 1937, Goldman’s first carts were ready for use in his market. He was terribly excited on the morning of that day as customers began arriving. He couldn’t wait to see them using his invention.
But Goldman was disappointed. Most shoppers gave the carts a long look, but hardly anybody would give them a try.
After a while, Goldman decided to ask customers why they weren’t using his carts. “Don’t you think this arm is strong enough to carry a shopping basket?”one shopper replied.
But Goldman wasn’t beaten yet. He knew his carts would be a great success if only he could persuade people to give them a try. To this end, Goldman hired a group of people to push carts around his market and pretend they were shopping! Seeing this, the real customers gradually began copying the phony(假冒的)customers.
As Goldman had hoped, the carts were soon attracting larger and larger numbers of customers to his market. But not only did more people come—those who came bought more. With larger, easier-to-handle baskets, customers unconsciously bought a greater number of items than before.
Today’s shopping carts are five times larger than Goldman’s original model. Perhaps that’s one reason Americans today spend more than five times as much money on food each year as they did before 1937—before the coming of the shopping cart.
32. What do the underlined words “chrome-¬plated contraptions” in Paragraph1 refer to?
A. Baskets. B. Private cars. C. Suitcases. D. Shopping carts.
33. What was the purpose of Goldman’s invention?
A. It was to prove him to be a good inventor.
B. It was to reduce the burden of his employees’ work.
C. It was to make shopping easier and attract more business.
D. It was to help the disabled make shopping easily in his market.
34. Goldman hired a group of people to push carts around his market in order to ________.
A. attract people to buy things in his market
B. encourage people to use his shopping carts
C. make his market different from the others
D. keep the groceries from being stolen
35. What can we infer from the last paragraph?
A. Goldman will become very famous because of his invention.
B. Goldman’s invention will be regarded as the greatest one in the world.
C. Supermarket business has benefited a lot from Goldman’s invention.
D. There will be nothing that can replace Goldman’s invention.
Lots of people find it hard to get up in the morning and put the blame on the alarm clock. In fact, the key to easy morning wake-up lies in resting your body clock 36 Here is how to make one.
37 In order to make a change, you need to decide why it’s important. Do you want to get up in time to have breakfast with your family, get in some exercise, or just be better prepared for your day? Once you are clear about your reason, tell your family or roommates about the change you want to make.
Rethink mornings. Now that you know why you want to wake up, consider re-arranging your morning activities. If you want time to have breakfast with your family, save some time the night before by setting out clothes, shoes, and bags. 38 That’s a quarter-hour more you could be sleeping if you bought a coffee maker with a timer.
Keep your sleep/wake schedule on weekends. If you’re tired out by Friday night, sleeping in on Saturday could sound wonderful. But compensating on the weekends actually feeds into your sleepiness the following week, a recent study found. 39
Keep a record and evaluate it weekly. Keep track of your efforts and write down how you feel. After you’ve tried a new method for a week, take a look at your record. 40 If not, take another look at other methods you could try.
A. Get a sleep specialist.
B. Find the right motivation.
C. A better plan for sleep can help.
D. And consider setting a second alarm.
E. If the steps you take are working, keep it up.
F. Stick to your set bedtime and wake-up time, no matter the day.
G. Reconsider the 15 minutes you spend in line at the café to get coffee.
Nowadays, more and more young people are becoming too 41 and over-confident. They think they can do everything. So they simply 42 their old parents, and believe that their parents’ 43 are out of date. Actually I used to be one of them, but after hearing a story told by my father, I changed my mind 44 . Now I would like to 45 it with you.
Once, there was a young man who 46 the old. He always thought that the old, including his father, were 47 . One day, the father and the son went for a walk in the 48 . As they walked, a beautiful 49 came into their sight. The son 50 to one pretty flower and said, “We young people are like this fragrant (芳香的) flower, so healthy, vigorous, and full of spirit. What about you oldsters? Just like the 51 leaves from a dying tree.”
Hearing this, the father smiled but said 52 . They continued the walking in silence. When they passed a(n) 53 , the father stopped and went in. He bought a walnut (核桃) and showed it to his son, and said, “We old are like this walnut. We’ve 54 many hard events in life. So we built up such a 55 shell, and at the same time we built up a 56 inner world. Every fruit is so full-grown.”
“But every fruit was born by a 57 .” argued the son.
“Yes, but not every flower can bear fruit…”
From then on, I always keep this 58 in mind. It has taught me a lot. We should try to be a flower that can bear fruit. we also have to know that our 59 aren’t falling leaves but experienced walnuts, masterpiece of 60 . They are the ones we should appreciate forever.

Snake dishes 61 (become) popular in recent years. Snake meat in various flavors (风味) is often seen in restaurant advertisements. Eating snake seems to be now in vogue (盛行), and 62 you haven’t eaten snake yet, you are considered “out of date”. But I wonder whether all the trends are worth 63 (follow).
Some people may defend themselves 64 saying that snake meat is nutritious. But these people don’t realize that many parasites (寄生虫), 65 (find) inside snakes, will do harm to our health.
According to a survey, about 1,000 tons of snakes are eaten every year in China and sometimes as many as 10 tons of snakes 66 (serve) on dinner tables in Shenzhen in a single day!
These figures warn us that if no 67 (act) is taken, the number of snakes will drop and that will make 68 increase in mice and worms population, 69 will result in a decrease of crops output. Who will see such tragedy happen?
So let’s start not to eat snakes any more because “to protect the snake is to protect 70 .”
The summer holiday is coming. My classmates and I are talking about how to do during the holiday. We can chose between staying at home and take a trip. If we stay at home, it is comfortable but there is no need to spend money. But in that case, we will learn little about world. If we go on a trip abroad, we can broaden your view and gain knowledges we cannot get from books. Some classmates suggest we can go to places of interest nearby. I thought that it is a good idea. It does not cost many, yet we can still learn a lot.

world. If we go on a trip abroad, we can broaden your view and gain knowledges we cannot
get from books. Some classmates suggest we can go to places of interest nearby. I thought that
should /can think
it is a good idea. It does not cost many, yet we can still learn a lot.
One possible version：
Our school photography club is going to hold an International High School Student Photography Show. The theme of the show is environmental protection. It will start from July 15th and last three weeks. Any student who is interested is welcome to participate. I know you take good pictures and you’ve always wanted to do something for environmental protection. I remember you showed me some photos on that theme the last time you visited our school. This is surely a good chance for more people to see them. If you want to join in it, you can send your photos to [email protected]
I hope to hear from you soon.
