           Mom and Dad are two of the most important people in your life. You probably see at least one of them every day. If your dad worships(崇拜) the Pittsburgh Stealers, you’re likely to grow up being a big fan of that football team. And if your mom loves to read, you just might grow up carrying a book wherever you go, just like she does.

           Here are four ways you can stay close and build a strong relationship with your parents.

           (1)Spent time together. How much time do you spend just enjoying each other’s company?

    Instead of playing a computer game or watching TV, maybe you can ask your mom and dad to play with you. Go outside together, try a board game, or read a book out.

           (2)Share your feelings and ask for help. Your mom or dad might not know that you’re having a problem. Tell a parent if you’re sad or struggling with something.

           (3)Show your care. Some families are always kissing, hugging, and saying “I love you”. It’s important to show that you care for each other. In addition to kisses and hugs, kids and parents show their love by respecting each other, being caring, polite, and thoughtful.

           (4)Whatever you do, do your best! You don’t have to be perfect, but when you do your best, you make your parents proud. It makes them happy to see how you’re turning into such a great kid. Why? Because it lets them know they’re doing a good job.

    8.The first paragraph mainly tells us     .

           A. the Pittsburgh Stealers is a famous football team

           B. the kid will like reading if his or her mother likes

           C. parents influence their kids greatly

           D. we should follow our parents’ hobbies

    9.In the third paragraph, the author suggests that     .

           A. you keep your parents company all the time

           B. you stay at home with your parents

           C. you enjoy games when your parents watch TV

           D. you do something together with your parents

    10.The underlined part “they’re doing a good job” means     .

           A. they have very good jobs                                        B. their jobs can bring the family much money

           C. they make you become a great kid                         D. they make you find a good job

    11.The text intends to tell us     .

           A. parents are important to everyone                          B. how we get along with our parents

           C. to respect our parents                                             D. to share feelings with our parents

    My parents and two older brothers arrived in Queens from Cuba in 1967, squeezing into a one-bedroom apartment that got even more cramped when I showed up two years later. Suspicious of everyone and unable to communicate in English, my parents weren’t about to let their kids hang out in the streets. And since they both worked, we boys spent a lot of time at home.

    The main public library on Merrick Boulevard was the first place I was allowed to visit on my own. I started going there when I was eight. Everything I needing was located on what seemed to me an endless single floor. Wandering around that building aimlessly on a Saturday afternoon offered a sense of freedom I’d never experienced before.

    Once my father dropped me off, it didn’t really matter what I did so long as I could explore. I find it interesting that people today say that libraries are no longer about books; they weren’t really about books for me back in the 1970s, either. It was more about being around other people who looked like they were being productive-turning pages, making copies, patiently waiting for items. All this was attractive to me.

    I felt a certain level of dignity and self-respect at the library. I didn’t borrow books from the library despite spending practically every Saturday of my childhood there. I certainly went over hundreds and hundreds of them during my walks around the building- sports, politics and the solar system were my favorite sections. But I felt no great need to bring books home. We had no room for books in our apartment anyway. I felt like a poor kid when I read books at home. I felt like everyone else when I read books at the library.

    4. The underlined word “cramped” in Paragraph I probably means “________”.

    A. dangerous    B. shabby    C. messy    D. crowded

    5. What did the author appreciate most about the library?

    A. The atmosphere it provides.    B. The books he could explore.

    C. The productive people in it.    D. The seemingly endless floor.

    6. The author didn’t borrow books from the library because ________.

    A. he had finished reading all the books he preferred

    B. he felt like reading at the library to enjoy freedom

    C. he didn’t want to lose his dignity and self-respect

    D. he was too poor to afford the cost of borrowing books

    7. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?

    A. How a Public Library Set Me Free

    B. Culture Shock Is Never a Barrier

    C. My Aimless and Boring Childhood

    D. A Building Shaped a Nation’s Spirit

    Many kids help out around the house with chores(家庭杂务) such as emptying the dishwasher, putting laundry away, and taking out the trash. In exchange, some kids get allowances(补贴) or other rewards such as extra computer time.

    But some people do not think that kids should get rewards for doing chores. Susie Walton, a parenting educator and family coach, believes that by rewarding kids, parents are sending a message that work isn’t worth doing unless you get something in return. "Running any kind of household is a team effort," Susie said. "A home is a living space for everyone in the family. It’s important for kids to see that we all have responsibilities in the house, and that families decide together how they want their home to look, and how they are going to keep it looking like everyone wants it to look."

    Other people believe that getting a cash allowance or other rewards motivates kids to do chores, and it also teaches them real world lessons about how we need to work to earn money. There are also new applications that give kids points and digital gifts that can be redeemed(兑取) either online or in the real world. With the ChoreMonster app, kids earn digital points by completing chores that they can turn in for real-life rewards such as extra Xbox time or a trip to the mall. "Our goal is to encourage kids to earn rewards," says Chris Bergman, founder of ChoreMonster. "Kids need positive reinforcement(强化) to help motivate them."

    What do you think? Should kids be rewarded for doing chores? Or should kids help out around their homes without getting anything in return?

    Write a 200-word response. Send it to tfkasks4youtimeforkids.com. Your response may be published in a future issue of Time For Kids. Please include your grade and contact information of your parent or teacher if you want your response to be published. The deadline for responding is February 18.

    8. How does the author start the passage?

    A. By comparing different views.

    B. By listing some evidence.

    C. By presenting some facts.

    D. By stating his own experiences.

    9. According to Susie Walton, _______.

    A. kids should be rewarded for doing chores

    B. parents decide what kids can do for the family

    C. kids have the responsibility to share housework

    D. kids can get extra computer time for doing chores

    10. Paragraph 3 is mainly about ________.

    A. Chris Bergman’s opinion on raising kids

    B. the advantage of rewarding kids for doing chores

    C. main reasons why kids need encouragement

    D. how to motivate kids to try new applications

    11. The purpose of writing the text is to __________.

    A. inform readers of two different opinions

    B. call on readers to reflect on their behavior

    C. present the author’s viewpoint about parenting

    D. invite readers to express their opinions

    Cherish the Moments with Our Parents

    There was something in an elderly woman's behavior that caught my eye. Unsure of her steps, the woman moved slowly, along with a younger woman who I guessed was her daughter. The daughter was rolling her eyes and checking her watch every few seconds.

    The older woman left the younger one and began to tick through the DVDs on the nearest shelf. Without hesitation, I walked over and asked if I could help her find something. The woman smiled at me and showed me a title on a piece of paper.

    Rather than rush off to locate the DVD for the woman, I asked her to walk with me so I could show her where she could find it. Looking back, I think I wanted to enjoy her company for a moment. Her movements reminded me of my own mother, who had passed away the previous Christmas.

    As we walked, the woman seemed glad of the unrushed company and casual conversation. We found the movie and she told me it was the one she'd enjoyed when she was her son's age and that she hoped he would enjoy it as much as she had. Maybe, she said he could enjoy it with his own young children.

    I accompanied her to the queue at the cashier. As the cashier put the DVD into a plastic bag, I went over to the younger woman, who was still tapping her foot at the front of the store.

    "Is that your mom?" I asked.

    I had expected her to tell me it was none of my business. But she rolled her eyes and said, "Yeah." There was annoyance in her reply. Still watching the mother, I said, "Mind some advice?"

    "Go ahead," said the daughter.

    I smiled to show her I wasn't criticizing "Cherish her," I said, "When she's gone, it's the little moments that'll come back to you. Moments like this. I know.”

    It was true. I missed my mom still and remembered with sadness the moments when I'd used my impatience to make her life miserable.

    The elderly woman moved slowly back to her daughter. Together they made their way toward the store's exit. They stood there for a moment, side by side, watching the rush of the holiday current. Then the daughter glanced over and slowly placed her arm with apparently unaccustomed affection around her mother's shoulders and gently guided her home.

    36. The daughter checked her watch frequently because she ________.

    A. had to wait for a friend

    B. wanted to buy a new watch

    C. was impatient to shop with her mom

    D. was uninterested in watching the DVD

    37. From Paragraphs 3 and 4 we know that ________.

    A. the elderly woman hadn't seen the movie before

    B. the elderly woman found her son's favorite movie

    C. the author and the eldly woman hurried to find the DVD

    D. the author and the elderly woman enjoyed each other's company

    38. We can learn from the passage that ________.

    A. the author had treated her mom very well

    B. the elderly woman looked like the author's mom

    C. the author scolded the daughter for her behavior

    D. the daughter changed her attitude toward her mom

    I read somewhere that we spend a full third of our lives waiting. But where are we doing all of this waiting, and what does it mean to an impatient society like ours? To understand the issue, let’s take a look at three types of “waits”.

        The very purest form of waiting is the Watched-Pot Wait. It is without doubt the most annoying of all. Take filling up the kitchen sink(洗碗池) as an example. There is absolutely nothing you can do while this is going on but keep both eyes fixed on the sink until it’s full. During these waits, the brain slips away from the body and wanders about until the water runs over the edge of the counter and onto your socks. This kind of wait makes the waiter helpless and mindless.

    A cousin to the Watched-Pot Wait is the Forced Wait. This one requires a bit of discipline. Properly preparing packaged noodle soup requires a Forced Wait. Directions are very specific. “Bring three cups of water to boil, add mix, simmer three minutes, remove from heat, let stand five minutes.” I have my doubts that anyone has actually followed the procedures strictly. After all, Forced Waiting requires patience.

    Perhaps the most powerful type of waiting is the Lucky-Break Wait. This type of wait is unusual in that it is for the most part voluntary. Unlike the Forced Wait, which is also voluntary, waiting for your lucky break does not necessarily mean that it will happen.

    Turning one’s life into a waiting game requires faith and hope, and is strictly for the optimists among us. On the surface it seems as ridiculous as following the directions on soup mixes, but the Lucky-Break Wait well serves those who are willing to do it. As long as one doesn’t come to rely on it, wishing for a few good things to happen never hurts anybody.

    We certainly do spend a good deal of our time waiting. The next time you’re standing at the sink waiting for it to fill while cooking noodle soup that you’ll have to eat until a large bag of cash falls out of the sky, don’t be desperate. You’re probably just as busy as the next guy.

    51. While doing a Watched-Pot Wait, we tend to ___________.

    A. keep ourselves busy

    B. get absent-minded

    C. grow anxious

    D. stay focused

    52. What is the difference between the Forced Wait and the Watched-Pot Wait?

    A. The Forced Wait requires some self-control.

    B. The Forced Wait makes people passive.

    C. The Watched-Pot Wait needs directions.

    D. The Watched-Pot Wait engages body and brain.

    53. What can we learn about the Lucky-Break Wait?

    A. It is less voluntary than the Forced Wait.

    B. It doesn’t always bring the desired result.

    C. It is more fruitful than the Forced Wait.

    D. It doesn’t give people faith and hope.

    54. What does the author advise us to do the next time we are waiting?

    A. Take it seriously.

    B. Don’t rely on others.

    C. Do something else.

    D. Don’t lose heart.

    55. The author supports his view by _________.

    A. exploring various causes of “waits”

    B. describing detailed processes of “waits”

    C. analyzing different categories of “waits”

    D. revealing frustrating consequences of “waits”

    Owning a smart phone may not be as smart as you think. They may let you surf the Internet,

    listen to music and snap photos wherever you are... but they also turn you into a workaholic (工作狂). A study suggests that, by giving you access to emails at all times, the all-singing, all-dancing mobile phone adds as much as two hours to your working day.

    Researchers found that Britons work an additional 460 hours a year on average as they are able to respond to emails on their mobiles. The study by technology retailer Pixmania, shows the average UK working day is between nine and ten hours, but a further two hours is spent

    responding to or sending work emails, or making work calls. Almost one in ten admits spending up to three hours outside their normal working day checking work emails. Some workers confess (坦白) they are on call almost 24 hours a day, with nine out of ten saying they take work emails and calls outside their normal working hours. Nearly two-thirds say they often check work emails just before they go to bed and as soon as they wake up, while over a third have replied to one in the middle of the night. Ghadi Hobeika, marketing director of Pixmania, said,  “The ability to access millions of apps, keep in contact via social networks and take photos and video as well as text and call has made smart phones valuable for many people. However, there are drawbacks. Many companies expect their employees to be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and smart phones mean that people cannot get away from work. The more constantly in contact we become, the more is expected of us in a work capacity (容量).”

    28. The text is probably taken from __________.

    A. a scientific report    B. a financial report   

    C. a newspaper          D. a travel journal

    29. The underlined word “drawbacks” in the last paragraph probably means __________.

    A. disagreements       B. disadvantages           

    C. mistakes            D. features

    30. Ghadi may agree that __________.

    A. employees are supposed to be on call 24 hours a day

    B. the ability to access many apps made smart phones worthless

    C. smart phones might turn a person into a workaholic

    D. people cannot get away from work without smart phones

    My wife and I have always been friendly with the clerks at the local store. I don’t think many people appreciate what a difficult job these clerks have. They work for a little money and I often wonder how they make ends meet.

    One of the clerks, Charlie, was always wearing his glasses but he didn’t one day. I asked him about it and he said they’d been out of order and that he couldn’t afford a new pair. His family needed money. It was clear that he was having a difficult time.

    We wanted to help him, so we turned to our own eye doctor for help with a plan. We had his secretary contact him, asking him to come in for an eye exam for free. We told the doctor to let him order whatever glasses he wanted and that we would pay for them. Although Charlie questioned what was going on, the doctor just told him that someone had offered the money for his new glasses. When we went in to pay the bill, the doctor told us he was touched by our idea so that he waived the exam fee and only charged us for half the price of the glasses!

    It was so wonderful to see Charlie in his new glasses and he enjoyed telling all the regular customers how the gift came about. I’m sure that upon hearing his story, ideas of kindness may have come in the minds of many people.

    5. Why didn’t the clerk Charlie wear glasses one day?

    A. It was very warm and fine.  B. His glasses were missing.

    C. His old glasses were broken.  D. He forgot to wear his glasses.

    6. From the passage, we can infer that ______.

    A. Charlie was a young man with skills

    B. Charlie couldn’t support his family with enough money

    C. Charlie completely accepted the money for the new glasses

    D. Charlie knew who paid the money for the new glasses

    7. The underlined word “waived” in the third paragraph can be replaced by ______.

    A. took up           B. gave up     C. cut down                             D. put off

    8. Which of the following could be the best title for the passage?

    A. Customers’ Gift to an Employee               B. A Friendly Clerk — Charlie 

    C. The Wonderful Feeling of Helping others           D. An Expensive Pair of Glasses

    The sight of a tailor-shop gave me a strong wish to throw off my old clothes and get a new suit. Could I afford it? No, I had nothing in the world but a million-pound note. So I forced myself to go on by. But soon I was drawing back again. The temptation troubled me cruelly. I must have passed that shop six times during that struggle. At last I gave in; I had to. I asked if they had a cheap suit. The fellow I spoke to made no answer at first, looked me up and down, noticed that I was almost in rags(衣衫褴褛), then said, “Just a minute.”

    I waited till he had finished his work. Then he took me into a back room to choose a cheapest suit for me. I put it on. It didn’t fit, but it was new and I was anxious to have it, so I said shyly:

    “Could you wait a few days for the money? I haven’t any small change on me.”

    The fellow looked at me coldly and said, “Oh, you haven’t? Well, of course, I know that gentlemen like you carry only large notes.”

    I was angry, and said, “My friend, you shouldn't judge a stranger always by the clothes he wears. I am quite able to pay for this suit; I simply didn't wish to put you to the trouble of changing a large note. ” “Why do you think we can’t change your note? Instead, we can.”

    I handed the note to him and said: “Oh, very well, I apologize.”

    He received it with a smile, and then as he looked at the note, his smile froze.

    Realizing what was going on, the owner of the shop gave a low whistle and talked excitedly, as if to himself.

    “To sell such a suit as that to a millionaire! Tod’s a fool. Please get those clothes off, sir. Wait till you see what we’ll make for you to your own measure.”

    Before I could get in a word he had measured me, and was giving orders for evening suits, morning suits, shirts and all sorts of things.

    32. The underlined word “temptation” in paragraph 1 has the same meaning with ________.

    A. attraction          B. happiness          C. anger           D. attention

    33. What can be inferred from the passage?

    A. The author knew he couldn’t afford that suit.

    B. Gentlemen always carried large notes.

    C. The note the author carried was too large to change.

    D. The shop owner recognized the author was a millionaire at the first sight..

    34. Which of the following is true according to the passage?

    A. The author liked the suit very much and decided to have it.

    B. Both Tod and the owner of the shop welcomed the author warmly.

    C. The author was looked down upon because of the clothes he wore.

    D. The author couldn’t have any new suit because he had no small change.

    35. What does the passage mainly tell us?

    A. No pains, no gains.                 B. Never forget to say thanks.

    C. A bad beginning makes a bad ending.       D. Never judge a person just by his appearance.

    Mom and Dad are two of the most important people in your life. You probably see at least one of them every day. If your dad worships (崇拜) the Pittsburgh Steelers, you’re likely to grow up being a big fan of that football team. And if your mom loves to read, you just might grow up carrying a book wherever you go, just like she does.

    Here are four ways you can stay close and build a strong relationship with your parents.

    1. Spend time together. How much time do you spend just enjoying each other’s company? Instead of playing a computer game or watching TV, maybe you can ask your mom and dad to play with you. Go outside together, try a board game, or read a book out.

    2. Share your feelings and ask for help. Your mom or dad might not know that you’re having a problem. Tell a parent if you’re sad or struggling with something.

    3. Show your care. Some families are always kissing, hugging, and saying “I love you”. It’s important to show that you care for each other. In addition to kisses and hugs, kids and parents show their love by respecting each other, being caring, polite, and thoughtful.

    4. Whatever you do, do your best! You don’t have to be perfect, but when you do your best, you make your parents proud. It makes them happy to see how you’re turning into such a great kid. Why? Because it lets them know they’re doing a good job.

    I always felt sorry for the people in wheelchairs. Some people, old and weak, cannot get around by themselves. Others seem perfectly healthy, dressed in business suits. But whenever I saw someone in a wheelchair, I only saw a disability, not a person.

    Then I fainted (晕倒) at Euro Disney due to low blood pressure. This was the first time I had ever fainted, and my parents said that I must rest for a while after First Aid. I agreed to take it easy but, as I stepped towards the door, I saw my dad pushing a wheelchair in my direction. Feeling color burn my cheeks, I asked him to wheel that thing right back to where he found it.

    I could not believe this was happening to me. Wheelchairs were fine for other people but not for me, as my father wheeled me out into the main street, people immediately began to treat me differently.

    Little kids ran in front of me, forcing my father to stop the wheelchair suddenly. Bitterness set in as I was thrown back and forth. “Stupid kids… they have perfectly good legs. Why can’t they watch where they are going?” I thought. People started down at me, with pity in their eyes. Then they would look away, maybe because they thought the sooner they forgot me the better.

    “I’m just like you!” I wanted to scream. “ The only difference is you’ve got legs, and I have wheels.”

    People in wheelchair are not stupid. They see every look and hear each word. Looking out at the faces, I finally understood: I was once just like them. I treated people in wheelchairs exactly the way they did not want to be treated. I realized it is some of us with two healthy legs who are truly disabled.

    21. The author once _________ when she was healthy.

    A. showed respected to disabled people

       B. looked down upon disabled people

       C. imagined herself sitting in a wheelchair

       D. saw some healthy people moving around in wheelchairs

    22. Facing the wheelchair for the first time, the author _________.

       A. felt curious about it                B. got ready to move around in it right away       

       C. thought it was ready for her father    D. refused to accept it right away

    23. The experience of the author tells us that_________.

       A. life is the best teacher

       B. people often eat their bitter fruit

       C. life is so changeable that nobody can predict

       D. one should never does to others what he would not like others do to him

    24. Which is the best title for this passage?

       A. How to Get Used to Wheelchairs.

       B. Wheelchairs Are as Good as Two Legs.

       C. People with Two Legs Are Truly Healthy

       D. The Difference Between Healthy People and the Disabled.

    Raised in a motherless home, my father was extremely tightfisted towards us children. His attitude didn’t soften as I grew into adulthood and went to college. I had to ride the bus whenever I came home. Though the bus stopped about two miles from home, Dad never met me, even in severe weather. If I grumbled, he’d say in his loudest father-voice, “That’s what you are for!”

    The walk didn’t bother me as much as the fear of walking alone alone the highway and country roads. I also felt less than valued that my father didn’t seem concerned about my safety. But that feeling was cancelled one spring evening.

    It had been a particularly difficult week at college after long hours in labs. I longed for home. When the bus reached the stop, I stepped off and dragged my suitcase to begin the long journey home.

    A row of hedge(树篱)edged the driveway that climbed the hill to our house. Once I had turned off the highway to start the last lap of my journey, I always had a sense of relief to see the hedge because it meant that I was almost home. On that particular evening, the hedge had just come into view when. I realized it was the top of my father’s head. Then I know, each time I’d come home, he had stood behind the hedge , watching, until he knew I had arrived safely. I swallowed hard against the tears. He did care, after all.

    On later visits, that spot of gray became my watchtower. I could hardly wait until I was close enough to watch for its secret movement above the greenery. Upon reaching home, I would find my father sitting innocently in his chair.“So! My son, it’s you!” he’d say, his face lengthening into pretended surprise.

    I replied, “Yes, Dad ,it’s me. I’m home.”

    21. What does the underlined word “grumbled”in Paragraph I probably mean?

    A. Accepted happily.       B. Spoke unhappily.        C. Agreed willingly.       D. Explained clearly.

    22. What made the author feel upset was _____.

    A. the tiredness after long hours in labs.                        B. the fear of seeing something moving.

    C. the feeling of being less than valued.                        D. the loneliness of riding the bus home.

    23. The author’s father watched behind the hedge because_______.

    A. he wanted to help his son build up courage.       

    B. B. he was concerned about his son’s safety.

    C. he didn’t want to meet his son at the doorway.  

    D. he didn’t think his son was old enough to walk alone.

    24. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?

    Life is difficult.

    It is a great truth because once we truly understand and accept it, then life is no longer difficult.

    Most do not fully see this truth. Instead they complain about their problems and difficulties as if life should be easy. It seems to them that difficulties stand for a special kind of suffering especially forced on them or else on their families, their class, or even their nation.

    What makes life difficult is that the process of facing and solving problems is a painful one. Problems, depending on their nature, cause sadness, or loneliness or regret or anger or fear.

    These are uncomfortable feelings, often as painful as any kind of physical pain. And since life causes a lot of problems, life is always difficult and is full of pain as well as joy.

    Yet, it is in this whole process of solving problems that life has its meaning. Problems are the serious test that tells us success from failure. When we want to encourage the growth of human spirit, we encourage the human ability to solve problems, just as in school we set problems for our children to solve. It is through the pain of meeting and working out problems that we learn. As Benjamin Franklin said, Those things that hurt, instruct(指导). It is for this reason that wise people learn not to fear but to welcome the pain of problems.

    46. From the passage, it can be inferred that          .

    A. problems and difficulties represent a special kind of suffering.

    B. we become stronger by facing and solving problems of life.

    C. life is difficult because our problems bring us pain.

    D. people like to complain about their problems.

    47. The writer probably used just one short sentence in the first paragraph to ___.

    A. save space              B. persuade readers

    C. make readers laugh      D. get readers’ attention

    48. The main idea of paragraph 3 is that _________.

    A. most people feel life is easy

    B. the writer feel life is easy

    C. the writer likes to complain about his problems

    D. most people complain about how hard their lives are

    49. According to the passage, we give school children difficult problems to solve in order to ______.

    A. encourage them to learn

    B. teach them to fear the pain of solving the problems

    C. help them learn to deal with pain

    D. teach them how to respect problems

    50. The saying from Benjamin Franklin “Those things that hurt, instruct” suggests that ______.

    A. we do not learn from experience

    B. we do not learn when we are in pain

    C. pain teaches us important lessons

    D. pain cannot be avoided

    Cell phone feels like a part of your body? A global survey has found that most people can't live without their mobiles, never leave home without them and, if given a choice, would rather lose their wallet.

    Calling mobile phones the "remote control" for life, market research firm Synovate's poll said cell phones are so ubiquitous that by last year more humans owned one than did not.

    Three-quarters of the more than 8,000 respondents polled online in 11 countries said they take their phone with them everywhere, with Russians and Singaporeans the most attached.

    More than a third also said they couldn't live without their phone, topped by Taiwanese and again Singaporeans, while one in four would find it harder to replace the mobile than their purse.

    Some two-thirds of respondents go to bed with their phones nearby and can't switch them off, even though they want to, because they're afraid they'll miss something.

    "Mobiles give us safety, security and instant access to information. They are the number one tool of communication for us, sometimes even surpassing face-to-face communication. They are our connections to our lives," Jenny Chang, Synovate's managing director in Taiwan, said in a statement.

    Mobiles have also changed the nature of relationships, with the survey finding nearly half of all respondents use text messages to flirt, a fifth set up first-dates via text and almost the same number use the same method to end a love affair.

    Apart from the obvious calling and texting, the top three features people use regularly on their mobile phones globally are the alarm clock, the camera and the games.

    As for email and Internet access, 17 percent of respondents said they checked their inboxes or surfed the Web on their phones, led by those in the United States and Britain.

        One in 10 respondents log onto social networking websites such as Facebook and MySpace regularly via mobile, again led by Britain and the United States.

        "As the mobile becomes more and more an all-in-one device, many other businesses are facing challenging times. The opportunities for mobile manufacturers and networks however are enormous," said Synovate's global head of media, Steve Garton.

    Not everyone is tech savvy, however: 37 percent of respondents said they don't know how to use all the functions on their phone.

    28. According to the passage, the top two regular functions of mobile phones may be


    A. camera and game

    B. calling and texting

    C. email and calling

    D. surfing and texting

    29. According to Jenny Chang, why is cell phone important for people?

    A. There are many functions on their phones.

    B. About half of all respondents end a love affair via text.

    C. Mobiles make people feel safe, secure and help them to get information.

    D. Mobiles used as the tool of communication is not popular with people.

    30.What can be inferred from paragraph 1?

    A. Cell phone plays an important part in body.

    B. As for most of people, wallet is less important than cell phone.

    C. More humans would rather own their wallet than cell phones.

    D. Poll considered mobile phones as the “remote control” for life.

    31.What does the underlined word in Paragraph 2 mean?

    Are you addicted to computer games? Do you stay up all night playing them? Do you feel happy after you play computer games?

    There’s no doubt that the excitement and appealing of games these days makes them hard to put down. We are attracted by the choice when it comes to gaming: You can role play--creating your own fantasy characters and stories, giving you a chance to step out of everyday life into an imaginary world. And there are shooting games where you can let out your anger and depression in violent situations where you kill people with guns. You can get excited from the games.

    However, can these kinds of games really be fun and can being absorbed in virtual reality be good for us? Should we worry about their effects on our health? Popular games like Grand Theft Auto have been blamed for everything from falling results at school to causing acts of extreme violence. Internet safety adviser, Alan MacKenzie, thinks “any people understandably will just think that a game is just a game and not realizing the exact content that’s in there”. He gives an example of the violence, which he says is “wholly inappropriate for anybody, not to mention children.”

    Others will argue that gaming is a harmless form of entertainment. There is evidence that playing video games could actually be good for us. Some games like Game of Thrones and World of Warcraft are educational and using games certainly can help children learn good qualities. Studies have also shown that the skills used in playing games can cause growth in certain areas of the brain, the ability to think in 3D and even improve our eyesight.

    Video game players are also no longer just simple creatures. For some, gaming is having a positive effect on their social lives with games like Halo and World of Warcraft often being played in groups. When your group works together to win the game, your sense of achievement is higher than when winning by yourself.

    So every coin has two sides. It seems today, gaming isn’t just for game fans and if used in a proper way, we can all take part. If video games have two sides, what side do you stand by? 

    28.The writer used a lot of questions at the beginning to _______.

    A. show his worries about the effect on health

    B. lead into the topic of the passage

    C. ask the reader for their own opinions about games

    D. doubt the advantage of playing computer games

    29.Paragraph 3 mainly talks about _______.

    A. the contents of the game are complex

    B. games contain extreme violence

    C. popular games lead to students’ falling results at school

    D. gaming is a harmful form of entertainment

    30.According to the passage, which of the following shows the good influence on social lives?

    A. Han Meimei passed the exam after playing the games.

    B. Li Hua leant many English words from playing games.

    C. Sunyan worked well with his teammates.

    D. Yang Li let out his anger and expressions.

    31.In Paragraph 4, the author supports his idea _______. 

    A. by giving some examples                B. with descriptive words  

    C. by providing some numbers              D. with some research results

    How I Turned to Be Optimistic

    I began to grow up that winter night when my parents and I were returning from my aunt’s houseand my

    mother said that we might soon be leaving for America.We were on the bus then.I was crying,and some people on

    the bus were turning around to look at me.I remember that I could not bear the thought of never hearing again the

    radio programs for school children to which I listened every morning.

    I do not remember myself crying for this reason again.In factI think I cried very little when I was saying

    goodbye to my friends and relatives.When we were leaving I thought about all the places I was going to see—the

    strange and magical places I had known only from books and pictures.The country I was leaving never to come

    back was hardly in my head then.

    The four years that followed taught me the importance of optimism,but the idea did not come to me at once.

    For the first two years in New York I was really lost—having to study in three schools as a result of family moves.

    I did not quite know what I was or what I should be. Mother remarried,and things became even more complex for

    me. Some time passed before my stepfather and I got used to each other. I was often sad,and saw no end to “the

    hard times”

    My responsibilities in the family increased a lot since I knew English better than everyone else at home.I

    wrote letters,filled out forms,translated at interviews with immigration officerstook my grandparents to the doctor

    and translated there,and even discussed telephone bills with company representatives.

    From my experiences I have learned one important rulealmost all common troubles eventually go away

    Something good is certain to happen in the end when you do not give upand just wait a littleI believe that my

    life will turn out all right,even though it will not be that easy.

    28How did the author get to know America before she went there?

    AFrom her relatives.      BFrom her mother.

    CFrom books and pictures. DFrom radio programs.

    29.Upon leaving for America the author felt ________.

    Aconfused Bexcited Cfrightened Damazed

    30For the first two years in New Yorkthe author ________.

    Aoften lost her way                 Bdid not think about her future

    AShe worked as a translator.           BShe attended a lot of job interviews.

    CShe paid telephone bills for her family.  DShe helped her family with her English.

    Housework is a frequent source of disputes (争论) between lazy husbands and their hard-working wives, but women have been warned not to expect men to pull their weight any time soon.

    A study from Oxford University has found that men are unlikely to be doing an equal share of housework before 2050. Mothers, the researchers warned, will continue to shoulder the burden of childcare and housework for the next four decades, largely because housework such as cleaning and cooking is still regarded as “ women’s work”.

    The gap between the amount of time men and women spend on housework has narrowed slowly over the past 40 years. But it will take another four decades before true housework equality (平等) is achieved, the study concluded.

    The research found that in the Nordic countries, the burden of housework is shared more equally between men and women. In the UK, women spend an average of four hours and forty minutes each day on housework, compared with two hours and twenty-eight minutes for men. This is an improvement from the 1960s, when British women typically spent six hours a day on housework, while men spent just 90 minutes every day.

    But progress towards housework equality appears to be slowing in some countries. Dr Oriel Sullivan, a research reader from Oxford’s Department of Sociology, said, “we’ve looked at what is affecting the equality in the home, and we have found that certain tasks seem to be given according to whether they are viewed as ‘men’s work’ or ‘women’s work’.”

    Dr Sullivan said cultural attitudes taught at school may be responsible for the views of housework. “At school it is much easier for a girl to be a tomboy, but it is much more difficult for a boy to enjoy baking and dancing,” she said.
    28.The underlined part “pull their weight” in Paragraph 1 probably refers to “__________”.
           A.lose weight               B.be lazy
           C.earn money               D.do equal housework
    29.Women will continue to do more housework before 2050 mainly because _________.
           A.men are too busy to help
           B.they would like to do so
           C.they can do better in housework
           D.housework will still be considered as women’s work
    30.From Paragraph 4 we know that in the UK ___________.
           A.men now spend just 90 minutes a day on housework on average
           B.women now are too busy with their work to do housework
           C.women now spend less time on housework than before
           D.housework is shared equally between men and women
    31.In Dr Sullivan’s opinion, what is to blame for the housework inequality?
           A.Cultural attitudes towards housework.
           B.Policies made by the government.
           C.The time spent on work.
           D.The type of housework.

    Have you ever run out of coffee or tea? Found no eggs in the fridge? No bread for the sandwich and the nearest shop is too far away? Well, all that can change in the future.

    If all goes well, the intelligent future kitchen will soon help solve all your problems. In the future, all kitchen units will be connected to the Internet. The intelligent future kitchen will give wise advice on planning your menu for the day. Worried about your weight? — It will tell you the right diet and what is good for your health. It will even keep in mind your likes and dislikes!

    Designed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, this smart kitchen promises to pay attention to all your needs. The computer’s system will help keep an “eye” on the fridge. If the fridge is empty, the kitchen will automatically call and place an order at the local supermarket. So you don’t have to worry about it at all.

    You get home late, and don’t know what to make from the collection of ingredients (原料) in your fridge. A while back you might have ordered a take-out but now, instead of worrying about eating a collection of this and that, you’re excited. You can pull out each vegetable, and pass each one in front of a web camera next to your fridge. A few moments later, a screen on your fridge would display a tasty recipe.

    After dinner, you take your plates to a box next to the sink. You don't have to clean them, your machine does. It produces new plates every time you need to eat. Later in the evening, you phone your other half, who is on a business trip half-way around the world.
