        Australia is a nation of pet lovers but it may be loving its animals to death because pet owners pass on rising levels of obesity(肥胖) by overfeeding their cats and dogs, the country's main animals welfare body says. Despite its image as a sports-mad country full of fit, sun-bronzed youth, Australia in reality is battling the obesity and challenging the United States as the world’s fattest nation. The problem now extends to household pets.

     Obesity rates for Australia have doubled over the past 20 years, with 62 percent of men and 45 percent of women overweight. The same trend applies to household pets, with an increase in the number of overweight cats and dogs being dealt with by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals(RSPCA) and even one case of a fat pet mouse. “It's a big problem, and quite reflective of what's happening in the human situation,” said Mark Lawrie, the RSPCA's chief . Australia is a nation of 20 million people, almost 4 million dogs, 2.5 million cats, 8.7 million pet birds and more than 12 million pet fish. It has one of the world's highest rates of pet ownership at 64 percent of households, compared to 62 percent in the United States and 44 percent in Britain.

    Lawrie said that surveys had found that between 40 and 44 percent of dogs and more than one in three household cats were now overweight, due to poor diet and a lack of exercises. Fat cats and dogs were much easier to suffer from heart problems and liver disease. The RSPCA said low levels of exercises had an impact on pet obesity, but the key problem was over-eating.

    32. In Australia many pets are involved in obesity problem due to the fact that __________.

       A. they are fed too much                    B. they dislike doing physical exercise

    C. their owners suffer from similar problems    D. their diet is poor in nutrition.

    33. It is certainly a problem to Australians that __________.

    A. there are too many household pets in the country

    B. they don't know how to deal with the overweight pets

    C. their country is the world's fattest nation

    D. more and more people are becoming over-weighted

    34. We can infer from the passage that __________.

       A. there is a variety of households pets, mice included in Australia

       B. dogs are the most popular household pets in Australia

       C. all Australians love sports exercises

       D. nobody is really concerned about pet obesity

    35. The passage is best titled with __________.

    A. Love Me, Love My Dog              B. Loving Your Pets To Death

       C. How to Keep Pets                   D. A travel in Australia

        Going shopping seems easy, but actually it takes a lot of learning, especially in America. In fact, many Americans who are not so well-off often shop at “sales” or at special stores that sell things at low prices, which you may find interesting. In America, the important rule of dressing is that one should change his or her clothes every day. For example, in an American college, neither professors nor students are seen in the same clothes two days in a row. So you may find it necessary to buy more clothes than you have in China. While you are shopping in the States, you will discover that prices range considerably from time to time. The purchase of used, second-hand clothing, furniture, or other household articles may be an excellent way of saving money. Most second-hand clothes are of pretty good quality. If you are going to settle down in the States and want some furniture, you may go to a “loan closet”, where furniture rents at low cost, or you may also go to a “furniture exchange” place in the community.

    Sheets, blankets, and other bedclothes go on sale in most communities twice a year. Advertisements for “white sales” on bed linen, towels, etc., often appear in January, as well as in May, June or July. Once or twice every season, there will be “garage sales”, where you can get almost anything, from a yacht to a pair of shoes, at low prices. Prices at “discount stores” and “thrift shops” are also as low as you can imagine.

    When shopping for food, you should look for special prices for various items that are put on sale weekly. To economize, it would be a good idea for you to plan the weekly menu according to what is on sale, including in it the meats, vegetables, fruits, etc. that can be bought at special prices that week.

    Exchange and return policies vary from store to store. You should also keep in mind that exchange and return policies for sales items can be different from standard store policies, especially if the price of the items has been reduced. Ask the merchant about their exchange and return policies before making your purchase. Obtaining an exchange or a return without a store receipt is often difficult. So, to save yourself the headache, you’d better hold on to any paper or other proof of purchase.

    51. People shopping in America will discover ________.

    A. American goods are excellent      

    B. most clothes come from China

    C. prices vary much sometimes       

    D. used clothes are of poor quality

    52. A person who needs furniture can ________.

    A. exchange their goods for furniture   

    B. settle in a place that has furniture

    C. get some free of charge            

    D. rent some at low cost

    53. At a “white sale”, one can buy ________.

    A. almost anything       

    B. meats, vegetables, fruits

    C. bed linen, towels      

    D. shoes at low prices

    54. Garage sales are held ________.

    A. once or twice every three months       

    B. once or twice every year

    C. from time to time                   

    D. in January, May, June or July

    55. What does “any paper or other proof” in the last paragraph refer to?

    A. The exchange and return policy.      

    B. A store receipt.

    C. A sales item.                     

    D. The standard store policy.

    Nowadays, especially in China, everything seems to favor social intercourse, such as gatherings of friends, KTV, group travel, dining tighter, playing cards and Mahjong, plus the Chinese-style street-crossing group. Back home, discussions can still be boisterously carried on within the circle of friends of WeChat.

    However, these scenes cannot always ease a sense of loneliness. Zhu Ziqing, a well-known professor of Tsinghua University, signed with emotion: My loneliness increases as scene becomes much busier. One popular song today is also called A lonely man in crowds. Actually, engaging in social intercourse requires ability, while being alone involves the whole character.

    These days, it is not easy to calm down totally and return to ones true self. Willpower, intellect and discipline are required. Einstein said: It is not your working time but your spare time that determines the possibility of whether you will be successful or not. The spare time he referred to could be taken as spending time by yourself.

    Lonely life could be either dull, boring and tasteless or abundant, interesting and colorful, depending on ones quality, ambition and inspiration.

    Just as the body constantly requires energy, the mind and soul also demand unceasing inputs. However, information, to processed and integrated(融入)into knowledge, thoughts and feelings, instead of bustle(忙碌)seems to be the right condition. Successful careers in all walks of life worldwide have proved that the soul grows in peace and talent is nurtured in loneliness. In a sense, it may be reasonable to say that Happiness tends to be shallow while loneliness involves profundity.

    Man, in fact, needs loneliness more than happy time, and only abundant loneliness can produce quality happiness.

    28. Which of the following can replace the underlined the word boisterously in paragraph 1?

    A. surprisingly

    B. sadly

    C. busily

    D. peacefully

    29. What can we infer from the second paragraph?

    A. Being alone marks people depressed.

    B. Social intercourse improves our happiness.

    C. One may feel lonely even when surrounded by people

    D. We should attend social intercourse to decrease our loneliness.

    30. What can we know from Einsteins words?

    A. You should be successful if you spend all your time by yourself.

    B. You should exercise more if you want to keep your minds healthy.

    C. You will not become successful if you join in more social intercourse.

    D. You will be more successful if you can make your lonely time meaningful.

    31. Which may be the best title for this passage?

    A. Live On Your Own

    B. Happiness and Loneliness

    C. The secret of success

    D. Practice Your Social Ability

    If you’re encouraged by the tiny house movement and think 160 square feet is just enough for your needs, you may want to contact the Academy of Construction and Design (ACAD) at IDEA Public Charter School in northeast Washington.

     Students in the program built a micro house with a kitchen, a bathroom, a sleeping loft with space for a queen-size bed and a storage loft, all set on a trailer for mobility. The exterior of the house was part of a continuous living exhibit in 2015 and was moved to the IDEA campus so students could work with builders to complete the interior earlier this year.

    McMahon said the D. C. government’s approval to push companies to hire District residents was at odds with the school system not preparing students for careers in construction, exploring or electrical work. McMahon gathered industry and community leaders to establish ACAD in 2005, and he said 100 percent of the companies he contacted responded positively to the idea, including major firms such as JBG, Clark Construction, Hines Construction and Boston Properties.

    “When students make the connection between what they are learning a potential career, their academics improve dramatically,” said Carol Randolph, chief operating officer of the D. C. Students Construction Trades Foundation. “Some of them who didn’t think college was an option now have a better chance because their classes have become relevant to a job.”

    “We teach them life skills and explain that even if you start as a laborer, there are opportunities to move up quickly,” he said. “We rewrite the story for them and explain that they can work for a few years, make good money, get promoted, and start their own business or go to school with less debts.”

    “Parents and school advisor can be the biggest obstacles because of the negative idea of construction as a blue-collar career,” Karriem said. “I get middle-school advisor on board to talk about the opportunities this education provides. These kids are learning lifelong skills that can help them in other fields, provide them with income and allow them to take care of their homes.”

    32. What might be the main purpose of the first paragraph?

       A. To advise the students to build houses

       B. To show IDEA Public Charter School

       C. To introduce the tiny house movement

       D. To get in touch with the ACAD organization

    33. What is the program of building a micro house aimed at?

       A. Experiencing living in the tiny house

       B. Improving cooperating with related companies

       C. Learning lifelong skills from college classes

       D. Providing the opportunities to get a job

    34. What does the underlined part “at odds with” mean in the 3rd paragraph?

       A. Inconsistent            B. Favorable        C. Unusual           D. Satisfactory

    35. What can we infer from the words of Karriem?

       A. Students tend to choose the blue-collar career

       B. It’s hard to make the micro house movement popular

       C. Education should provide more job opportunities

       D. Life skills help improve students’ academics greatly

       China has the highest adoption rate in the world for technology-enabled payment systems, according to a report released on Wednesday. The report, from the market research firm Nielsen, is based on a survey of 13,000 respondents in 26 countries.

    The survey showed that 86 percent of Chinese respondents said they paid for online purchases during the past six months via digital payment systems compared with a global average of just 43 percent.

    "Chinese consumers have more payment choices for products and services than ever while digital payments will continue to win over more Chinese consumers due to its convenient nature," said Kiki Fan, managing director of Nielsen China.

    At 71 percent, food-related businesses topped the list of purchases made via smart phones while event ticket purchases stood at 51 percent.

    The rising use of digital payments has attracted numerous players to the Chinese market.

    Apple's rival Samsung Electronics Co Ltd is expected to bring its own mobile payment service to China in mid-March—Sam-sung Pay.

    China's Internet giants Alibaba Group Holding Ltd and Tencent Holdings Ltd have already taken about 90 percent of the mobile payment market, but industry observers said the competition is just about to start.

       A. China has the most digital payment users

       B. a digital report is released on Wednesday

       B. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has already brought its own mobile payment service to China

       C. The competition concerning the digital payment will began soon

    If Confucius(孔子)were still alive today and could celebrate his September 28 birthday with a big cake, there would be a lot of candles. He’d need a fan or a strong wind to help him put them out.

    While many people in China will remember Confucius on his special day ,few people in the United States will give him a passing thought. It’s nothing personal. Most Americans don’t even remember the birthdays of their own national heroes.

    But this doesn’t mean that Americans don’t care about Confucius. In many ways he has become a bridge that foreigners must cross if they want to reach a deeper understanding of China.

    In the past two decades, the Chinese studies programs have gained huge popularity in Western universities. More recently, the Chinese government has set up Confucius Institutes in more than 80 countries. These schools teach both Chinese language and culture. The main courses of Chinese culture usually include Chinese art, history and philosophy(哲学).Some social scientists suggest that Westerners should take advantage of the ancient Chinese wisdom to make up for the drawbacks(缺点) of Western philosophy. Students in the United States, at the same time, are racing to learn Chinese. So they will be ready for life in a world where China is an equal power with the United States. Businessmen who hope to make money in China are reading books about Confucius to understand their Chinese customers.

    So the old thinker’s ideas are still alive and well.

    Today China attracts the West more than ever, and it will need more teachers to introduce Confucius and Chinese culture to the West.

    As for the old thinker, he will not soon be forgotten by people in the West, even if his birthday is.

    29. The opening paragraph is mainly intended to ________

    A. provide some key facts about Confucius

    B. attract the readers’ interest in the subject

    C. show great respect for the ancient thinker

    D. prove the popularity of modern birthday celebrations

    A.  have a great interest in studying Chinese

    B. take an active part in Chinese competitions

    D. fight for a chance to learn Chinese

    31. What is the best title for the passage?

    A. Forgotten Wisdom in America

    B. Huge Fans of the Chinese Language

    C. Old Thinker with a Big Future

    D. Chinese Culture for Westerners

    Failure is probably the most exhausting experience a person ever has.There is nothing more tiring than not succeeding.

    We experience this tiredness in two ways: as start-up fatigue(疲惫) and performance fatigue.In the former case, we keep putting off a task because it has either too boring or too difficult.And the longer we delay it,the more tired we feel.

    Such start-up fatigue is very real,even if not actually physical,not something in our muscles and bones.The solution is obvious though perhaps not easy to apply: always handle the most difficult job first.

    Years ago,I was asked to write 102 essays on the great ideas of some famous authors.Applying my own rule,I determined to write them in alphabetical(按字母顺序),never letting myself leave out a tough idea.And I always started the day's work with the difficult task of essay-writing.Experience proved that the rule works.

    Performance fatigue is more difficult to handle.Though willing to get started,we cannot seem to do the job right. Its difficulties appear so great that,however hard we work,we fail again and again.In such a situation,I work as hard as I can-then let the unconscious take over.

    When planning Encyclopaedia Britannica (《大英百科全书》),I had to create a table of contents based on the topics of its articles.Nothing like this had ever been done before,and day after day I kept coming up with solutions, but none of them worked.My fatigue became almost unbearable.

    One day,mentally exhausted,I wrote down all the reasons why this problem could not be solved.I tried to convince myself that the trouble was with the problem itself,not with me.Relived,I sat back in an easy chair and fell asleep.

    An hour later,I woke up suddenly with the solution clearly in mind.In the weeks that followed,the solution which had come up in my unconscious mind provided correct at every step.Though I worked as hard as before,I felt no fatigue.Success was now as exciting as failure had been depressing.

    Human beings,I believe must try to succeed.Success,then,means never feeling tired.

    33.What does the author recommend doing to prevent start-up fatigue?

    A.Writing essays in strict order.                          B.Building up physical strength.

    C.Leaving out the toughest ideas.                       D.Dealing with the hardest task first.

    34.On what occasion does a person probably suffer from performance fatigue?

    A.Before starting a difficult task.                          B.When all the solutions fail.

    C.If the job is rather boring.                                 D.After finding a way out.

    35.What could be the best title for the passage?

    A.Success Is Built upon Failure                           B.How to Handle Performance Fatigue

    C.Getting over Fatigue: A Way to Success          D.Fatigue: An Early Sign of Health Problems

    One event that helps educate young people about things they can do for others is National Youth Service Day (NYSD). Every year on this day, organizations all over the country celebrate young volunteers, educate young people about how they can help their country, and invite them to participate in service projects. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said, “National Youth Service Day honors young volunteers and is an invitation to others to join hands and do our part as Americans.”

    Founded in 1988, NYSD originally took place on a Tuesday. Now the event lasts from Friday until Sunday so that more people can participate in it. More than 200 organizations work together to create thousands of projects each year. Millions of young people across the United States take part in these service projects.

    Long before the event, people, community groups, schools, and nonprofit organizations think of ways to meet their communities’ needs. Then, they plan projects for young volunteers. Projects include bringing food to hungry people, tutoring younger children and helping senior citizens. During the event, young people from the community do things like planting neighborhood gardens and cleaning up local parks.

    The organizations that contribute to NYSD believe that volunteering and community service are important activities for people of all ages, but especially for young people. Young people who volunteer are more likely to do well in school, vote, and contribute to charities. More important, they help other people and make the world a better place for everyone.

    That is the subject of a new report from the United Nations refugee(难民) agency. The report says that 3.7 million children under the U.N. agency’s care are unable to attend school. The situation gets worse as the children get older. The percentage drops from 50 percent for young children to 22 percent at secondary school age.

    U.N. information also shows that only one percent of refugees attend a university, compared to 34 percent of the world’s population . As refugee children grow, their chances for education severely decrease.

    The issue of providing refugees with an education is more difficult because of the expanding population and a lack of necessary financing. According to the U.N. report, the population of school-age children grew by 30 percent in 2014. That number requires an extra 20,000 teachers.

    Many host nations already struggle to provide simple, but necessary services for refugees. But now, they must also find a place to hold classes and a way to purchase additional school supplies. Often , the children struggle in their studies after missing several years of school and do not speak the local language.

    In 2015, most of the donations for this education program arrived in the final two months of the year. U.N. officials said this hurt the ability of host countries to make effective long-term plans for schooling.

    The U.N. is asking donors to provide dependable funding over many years to help those countries better plan for providing teachers and supplies. It also urges the host governments to include refugees in their national education systems instead of separate schools.

    The new report discusses the helpful effects of education, saying it helps children avoid child labor and membership in armed groups. It also said that not providing schooling only extends conflict and leads to more people being homeless.

    32. What issue did the U.N. report raise?

       A. More and more children drop out of school.

       B. Refugees can not afford to attend a university.

       C. A large number of children can not receive education.

       D. Only 22 percent of children are able to attend school.

    33. Why is giving refugees an education becoming more difficult?

       A. No host nations want to change education systems.

       B. It is impossible to find so many extra teachers.

       C. Parents can’t afford to send their kids to school.

       D. The refugee population grows but there’s not enough money.

    34. What does Para. 4 mainly talk about?

    A. The difficulty host nations have in helping refugees.   

    B. The challenges both host nations and children face.

    C. The language problems children meet with.

    D. The schools host nations built for refugees.

    35. What do you know from the last paragraph?

    A. The necessity of education.        

    B. The threat to children’s lives.

    C. The bright future of children.         

    D. The bad living conditions of children.

    Chinese kungfu is one of the earliest and longest-lasting sports that use both muscle and brain. Over its long history it has developed as a unique combination of exercise, practical self-defense, self-discipline and art.

    It is estimated that Chinese kungfu can date back to primitive society. At that time, people used sticks to fight wild beasts. Gradually, they accumulated a great deal of self-defense experience. When the Shang Dynasty began, hunting was considered an important part of kungfu training .

    During the Shang and Zhou dynasties, martial arts(武术) evolved to become a kind of dancing. Usually, the dancing of martial arts was used to train soldiers and inspire their morale. At the same time, the skill and technology of sword making as well as sword ceremonies developed rapidly.

    Starting from the Tang Dynasty, a kungfu examination was proposed and introduced. Excellent candidates would receive titles and awards through the examination, largely promoting the development of martial arts. By then, martial arts had evolved to become an art form and an independent genre. Kungfu was gradually introduced to many countries in Southeast Asia. Today , kungfu is honored as the ancestor of kickboxing(跆拳道), karate(空手道) and judo.

    The Song and Yuan dynasties witnessed the climax of kungfu development. The practice of kungfu by civil organizations became more and more popular. People actually made a living as martial arts performers all over the country. Usually their performance was carried out by a single person or two people as a pair.

    Chinese kungfu achieved greater development in the Ming and Qing dynasties. In the Ming Dynasty, a lot of genres came into being and numerous books on martial arts were published. In the Qing Dynasty, the ruling empire banned the practice of martial arts, and the people had to set up various clubs or societies to pass on the skills in secret.

    Today, kungfu continues to be practiced by many people for the purpose of keeping fit or improving body image.

    28. According to the text, ___________ was an important part of the development of kungfu

       A. promote the national economy

    30. What can we learn from the text ?

       A. The production of swords reached the highest point during the Tang Dynasty.

       B. Kungfu was performed by many people during the Song and Yuan dynasties.

       C. Kungfu has had a great impact on many activities in Southeast Asia.

    In the middle of the 20th century people were worried about whales.The number of whales killed worldwide came up to 66,000 per year.However,people weren't worried about the whale as an endangered animal.Instead,they were worried about the whale industry,which would disappear if there were no whales.In 1946,the International Whaling Commission was established.It limited the whale hunting for every country and controlled the whale industry.But the commission recognized that the limitation wasn't enough.They set a worldwide law against hunting whales with only two exceptions: the hunt for scientific research and "aboriginal whaling".Aboriginal whaling allows some countries to hunt a limited number of whales because it is a part of their culture.Some countries like Japan and Norway don't care about the law;they make excuses to hunt whales and sell the products.They only care about the money.

    Many fishermen complain that dolphins,also a kind of whale,steal their fish.Therefore,they kill thousands of them.In fact,this is not the truth.In reality there are so many fishermen who steal the fish from each other.Some whale hunters say that they catch the animals for scientists.They have to research what whales are eating.For that, they kill them and look into their stomach.The truth is that they only want to sell the meat.Today scientists want to observe live whales for their research.

    Many whale families are not protected and thousands of them are killed.Nobody knows if all whale families would survive,even if humans end all whale hunting today.The pollution of the oceans increases fast and the poison gets into the bodies of the animals.Many of them get sick and die.The human being has killed 90%-95% of many whale families.Others are already extinct.

    Today some international organizations try to protect whales.They make reports to explain how important and endangered whales are.Now people are becoming more interested in whales and a complete new industry has developed,whale watching,which you may want to learn about.

    21.The text is mainly about      .

    A.whale industry            B.whale research            C.whale product         D.whale protection

    22. In the middle of the 20th century,what people really worried was that      .

    A.more whales would be killed worldwide per year        B.the whale would become an endangered animal

    C.the whale industry would disappear                    D.the law against hunting whales would come into effect

    23.Why does Aboriginal whaling allow some countries to hunt a limited number of whales?

    A.Because there are many whales in their countries.     B.Because hunting whales is a part of their culture.

    C.Because they only care about money.                   D.Because they live on hunting whales.

    24.Why do many fishermen complain about dolphins?

    A.Because dolphins steal their fish.

    B.Because they want to make an excuse for killing dolphins.

    C.Because there are so few dolphins for them to hunt.

    D.Because people have misunderstood their purpose of hunting dolphins.

    Every week in China, millions of people will sit in front of their TVs watching teenagers compete for the title Character Hero, which is a Chinese-style spelling bee(拼写大赛). In this challenge, young competitors must write Chinese characters by hand. To prepare for the competition, the competitors usually spend months studying dictionaries.

    Perhaps the show’s popularity should not be a surprise. Along with gunpowder and paper, many Chinese people consider the creation of Chinese calligraphy(书法)to be one of their primary contributions to civilization. Unfortunately, all over the country, Chinese people are forgetting how to write their own language without computerized help. Software on smart phones and computers allows users to type in the basic sound of the word using the Latin alphabet. The correct character is chosen from a list. The result? It’s possible to recognize characters without remembering how to write them.

    But there’s still hope for the paint brush. China’s Education Ministry wants children to spend more time learning how to write.

    In one Beijing primary school we visited, students practice calligraphy every day inside a specially decorated classroom with traditional Chinese paintings hanging on the walls. Soft music plays as a group of six-year-olds dip brush pens into black ink. They look up at the blackboard often to study their teacher’s examples before carefully attempting to reproduce those characters on thin rice paper. “If adults can survive without using handwriting, why bother to teach it now?” we ask the calligraphy teacher, Shen Bin. “The ability to write characters is part of Chinese tradition and culture,” she reasons. “Students must learn now so they don’t forget when they grow up.” says the teacher.

    12. Which of the following is closest in the meaning with the underlined sentence is paragraph 2?

     A. Ever Chinese can write Chinese characters easily, especially with computers

     B. Only with the help of computers can some Chinese people write Chinese characters

     C. Despite the help of computers, Chinese people have forgotten how to write

     D. Computers are the only means to rely on to write Chinese characters for many people

    13. What can we learn about the Character Hero?

     A. It’s open to people of all ages and all walks.

     B. It’s the most-viewed TV programs in China.

     C. It aims to spread Chinese culture to the world.

     D. It draws great public attention across the country.

    14. Why are Chinese people forgetting how to write the characters?

     A. Chinese people don’t refer to dictionaries very often.

     B. Chinese people no longer use brush pens or practice calligraphy.

     C. Chinese people are using the Latin alphabet instead of the characters.

     D. Chinese people needn’t write by hand as often with the help of technology.

    15. According to Shen Bin, being able to write characters by hand is__________.

     A. necessary for adults to survive in China

     B. a requirement made by the Education Ministry

     C. helpful to keep Chinese tradition and culture alive

     D. an ability to be developed only when you are students

    Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami is to offer advice to troubled readers in an agony uncle column on his website, his publisher said Tuesday. The website, named “Murakami-san no tokoro” or “Mr. Murakami’s place” will seek problems from fans of the surrealist, whose novels are published in dozens of languages around the world.

    The publicity-shy writer will pen answers to queries, offering his opinions and advice on how to deal with difficulties, said Shinchosha Publishing. “He will receive questions of any kind,” a company spokesman said, adding that he will answer queries written in a variety of languages. Murakami will also answer fans’ questions on his likes and dislikes - including cats, a favorite animal of his, and the Yakult Swallows, the Japanese baseball team he supports. Problems and queries will be accepted until the end of January, and Murakami’s answers will be published over the following two months. The activity offers a rare chance for Murakami’s fans to communicate directly with a writer who spends much of his time hiding from the glare of the media. “After so long, I want to exchange emails with readers,” Murakami was quoted by the publisher as saying.

    The 65-year-old, who reportedly spends much of his time in the United States, has a cult following for his intricately-crafted tales of the absurdity and loneliness of modern life, and peppers his work with references to pop culture. The website’s URL or email address for questions is not yet available, the publisher’s spokesman said.

    21.which statement is right about Murakami?

    A. He has answered some questions from his fans on the website

    B. He will meet his fans face to face

    C. He will write more new books to answer the questions

    D. He will write e-mails or answer his fans in his website 

    23. When will Murakami publish the answers

    A. Now                                B. February and March

    C. January and February               D. March and April

    Experts estimate that by the end of the century, half of the 6,000 languages spoken on our planet will have disappeared. In West Africa, academics in Togo are trying to protect the small country’s rich cultural and language heritage.

    At the University of Lorne, Professor Goeh-Akue shows a visitor some videos of Gen cultural celebrations. The professor is a cultural heritage expert, and he is also a Gen, one of many ethnic groups in Togo (多哥). He is making films of Gen cultural customs with financial help from the United States. He says, “The Gen have an important place in Togo’s history and culture. The Gen believe in numerous voodoo deities (伏都神). But today, fewer and fewer Gen children go through voodoo initiation (入教) ceremonies. Increasingly, the new generation does not recognize the importance of these cultural traditions.”

    He says formal education and the spread of Christianity have reduced their influence. Many young people think traditional practices are uncivilized. And while the Gen language is widely spoken in Lorne, the capital, the professor says it is not taught in schools.

    Gen is one of approximately thirty-nine languages spoken in Togo. An expert in the UNESCO endangered language program says that, by the end of the century, more than half of Africa’s languages will be gone.

    “A language needs speakers, preferably people who speak it as their mother tongue or first language. But a language at least needs people who can speak it as their second language,” said the specialist, Anahit Minasyan.

    “People switch to a language or they raise their children in a language which they think will provide for a better economic opportunity in the future,” said Ms. Minasyan. “In Africa, for example, people often switch to larger African languages, which have more speakers and provide more economic opportunities than their mother tongues.”

    Socio-linguist (社会语言学家) Komlan Essiewa says that today, many young urban Togolese (多哥人) switch between several languages, and these include the Mina language spoken in cities. “As a linguist, we have to be very worried about it. Because today, even when people move back to their village, they don’t use the language of the village as they used to.”

    32. According to the text, which of the following is NOT true?

    A. Gen is one of the ethnic groups in Togo.

    B. There are about 39 languages spoken in Togo.

    C. Christianity is the main religion of Gen people.

    D. Students don’t learn the Gen language in schools.

    33. Which of the following is NOT one of the reasons why some African languages will disappear?

    A. Formal education has reduced the influence of these languages.

    B. Some of the African languages are very difficult to learn.

    C. Many young people don’t think the cultures symbolized by these languages are civilized.

    D. They can’t provide better economic opportunities.

    34. What can we learn from the last paragraph?

    A. Many young urban Togolese can speak several languages.

    B. Linguists are worried about the situation and have a solution to the problem.

    C. People didn’t use the language of their village in the past.

    D. The Mina language is only spoken in cities.

    35. What is the main issue discussed in this passage?

    A. An introduction to the culture and history of Gen.

    B. The history of Togolese.

    C. Concern over endangered cultural and language heritage.

    D. The rich culture of Togo.

      Written in the first chapter of the book Pride and Prejudice is an extraordinary sentence of which even a person who has had only a brief look upon the book will not fail to receive a deep impression ---It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. In terms of Sherlock Holmes, we’d better alter the sentence into “It is a fact universally accepted by readers throughout the world that an excellent book in possession of our famous detective Sherlock Holmes is undoubtedly a masterpiece of all times.” Perhaps this is one of the most obvious explanations for the unrivaled popularity of “Holmes series” in the field of detective stories. Overwhelmed by the recommendations provided by my friends, I decided to take a look on this Sherlock Holmes and the Duke’s Son originally published by Oxford University Press.

      As a whole, this book is about a case concerning the Duke’s missing son. Arthur, the Duke’s son, was found out in a certain morning to have disappeared, accompanied with which was also the disappearance of the German teacher. The school master Dr. Huxtable then turned to the famous detective of the time Sherlock Holmes for help. Realizing how tough and important the case is, Holmes immediately made up his mind to accept the case and followed Dr. Huxtable back to Mackleton by train. Having formed a rough idea about the whole matter, Holmes probed into the case immediately and had a careful investigation of the entire area shortly after the arrival, during the process of which he discovered the body of the German teacher Heidegger. Finally, primarily due to his prominent ability as a detective, he managed to unravel the mystery.

      Having once started reading this fiction, I was completely immersed in the mysterious story. At the beginning, unlike other detective stories, this story first delineates the client’s strange behavior at length to indicate the severity of the incident in order to attract the readers to continue reading it. As is known to all, vivid depiction is essential to detective stories as it makes the story more authentic and attractive. Therefore, trying to present a “real world” to his readership, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the original “Holmes series”, has skillfully arranged the plots of the whole story from the perspective of Dr. Watson, a friend of Homes’. In this way, he elaborately (精心)depicted every scene and character in the book, Apart from the special start, the ending of the whole story, being dramatic but reasonable, is certainly an outstanding one. After all, except the author himself, who knows that the Duke’s seemingly ordinary secretary is in fact the Duke’s bastard(私生子)? In addition, who knows that the Duke actually has already been acquainted with the whole thing before Holmes solves this complicated problem? Yet, surprising as it is, this ending seems so natural that it fits all the plots of the story perfectly well. Closing my eyes, I can even “see” the story happening just like watching a film.

      As far as I am concerned, nothing is more admirable and surprising in the hero Sherlock Homes than his profound knowledge which has certainly assisted him a lot when he was studying the case. Take the bicycle tyres for instance, Holmes is capable of recognizing 42 different varieties of bicycle tyres. Except for his illimitable knowledge, Holmes also specializes in arranging the facts in order and then finding the fact leading him to a great discovery or even the truth itself. In this case, after getting rid of unrelated facts, Sherlock Homes eventually grasped the clue and discovered the amazing fact.

       Needless to say, as a world-renowned masterpiece, Sherlock Holmes and the Duke’s Son has attracted and is still charming numerous readers from all corners of the world and people from all walks of life. The “Holmes series” has already set up a standard against which all the following detective fictions are measured. Sherlock Holmes, beyond all doubt, has been a name firmly rooted in people’s memories. Although Dr. Watson’s closing The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes in 1927 was a great pity to the readers, the discontinuance of the entire “Holmes series” may have actually added to the legendary stature of Sherlock Holmes.

    91. Why does the author mention the book Pride and Prejudice?

       A. To show his/her impression on it

       B. To change a sentence in it to evaluate the Holmes series

       C. To quote a sentence to directly illustrate its impressiveness

       D. To state the reason why he/she began reading Sherlock Holmes and the Duck’s son

    92. Many factors contribute to the author’s positive attitude toward the book EXCEPT that __________.

       A. the detailed description of a client’s strange behavior arouses the readers’ interest

       B. the plots are well laid out and all scenes and characters are artfully presented

       C. the book is even adapted into a film and the author really enjoys watching it

       D. its ending is so surprising that it makes the author deeply impressed.

    93. What kind of a person is Sherlock Holmes according to the passage?

       A. Knowledgeable            B. Arbitrary          C. Mysterious         D. Courageous

    94. How is the passage organized?

      

    (p=paragraph)

    95. What’s the passage mainly about?

       A. It mainly introduces the plots of the book Sherlock Holmes and the Duck’s son

       B. It’s mainly about the author’s attitude towards Sherlock Holmes

       C. It’s mainly about the thoughts of the author after reading Sherlock Holmes and the Duck’s son

       D. It’s mainly a comparison between the book Pride and Prejudice and the Holmes series

           There has been a technological revolution where kindles, e-books, and various online reading apps have taken over the world. Is reading a print book out of date? Well, not exactly.

           There are so many wonderful factors involved with reading a print copy of the book. I remember the excitement of going to the bookstore with my mom when I was in elementary school. The feel of sitting down in the book store and selecting the books I wanted to read was just so much fun! I think that reading paperback books has its own charm and excitement that cannot be replaced by an electronic book. Holding the physical copy of the book in my hands, and turning over each page makes the reading experience so much more real and memorable.

           Admittedly, e-books seem to be more convenient than print books, Purchasing an e-book can take place in seconds and these books are often priced less expensively than print copy books. With e-books, there likely isn’t going to be a storage problem, unless the device has a limit on how many books can be purchased. Then again, in order to read e-books one must have a particular device-tablet, iPad, kindle or laptop to read it on. Thus, an additional payment has to be made in order to read e-books, whereas reading print copies does not involve any extra device.

           Print books never actually stopped leading the charge, considering that e-book sales have never made up more than a third of all book sales. And although they rose to that number extremely quickly--Amazon, only introduced the kindle in 2007-the majority of all books sold has always been print. The reality is that there is absolutely no reason print and e-books can’t coexist in the book market, but print books may carry the day.

    33.What advantage do e-books have according to the passage?

           A. The reading experience is more real

           B. There is no storage problem at all

           C. Purchasing them takes less time

           D. They are very priceless

    34.What can we infer about the book market?

           A. E-book sales make up more than 1/3 of all book sales

           B. E-book sales have never surpassed print book sales

           C. Amazon occupies most of the market

           D. Print books and e-books can’t coexist

    35.What’s the author’s attitude towards the future of print books?

           A. Worried                                                            B. Optimistic

           C. Indifferent                                                         D. Doubtful

           It’s inevitable for us to meet and contact with strangers. Also talking to strangers matters but how does it work? There are unwritten rules we tend to follow. The rules are very different depending on what country we’re in and what culture we’re in.

           In most parts of the US, the baseline expectation in public is that we maintain a balance between politeness and privacy. This is known as civil inattention(礼貌性疏忽). So, imagine two people are walking towards each other on the street. They’ll glance or wave at each other from a distance. That’s the civility. And then as they get closer, they’ll look away, to give each other some space.

           In other cultures, people go to extraordinary lengths not to interact at all. People from Denmark are unwilling to talk to strangers, and they would rather miss their stop on the bus than say “excuse me” to someone that they need to get around. They move the backpacks on purpose or use their bodies to say that they need to get past, instead of using two words.

           In Egypt, it’s rude to ignore a stranger, and there’s a remarkable culture of hospitality. Strangers might ask each other for a sip of water. Or, if you ask someone for directions, they’re very likely to invite you home for coffee. We see these unwritten rules most clearly when they’re broken, or when you’re in a new place and you’re trying to figure out what the right thing to do is.

           When you talk to strangers, you’re making beautiful interruptions into the expected narrative of your daily life and theirs. You’re making unexpected connections. If you don’t talk to strangers, you’re missing out on all of that. We spend a lot of time teaching our children about strangers. What would happen if we spent more time teaching ourselves? We could make a space for change.

    29.Which of the following can be regarded as civil inattention in most parts of the US?

           A. Avoiding talking to strangers

           B. Glancing at each other anytime

           C. Greeting someone in the distance

           D. Inviting strangers home for coffee

    30.How does a Dane get past on the bus?

           A. By saying ”excuse me ” politely

           B. By tapping others on the shoulders

           C. By forcing his way through people

           D. By making a gesture

    31.Why does the author advise making a space for change?

           A. To let us create private space between strangers and us

           B. To let us show hospitality to strangers

           C. To let us make improvement on how to treat strangers

           D. To let us maintain a balance between politeness and privacy

    32.What does the passage mainly talk about?

           A. How to contact with strangers

           B. Different rules of treating strangers

           C. The meaning of civil inattention

           D. Making unexpected connections

    Brain-training software may be a waste of time.People who played "mind-boosting" games made the same modest cognitive gains as those who spent a similar amount of time surfing the web."It didn't really make any difference what people did,"says Adrian Owen of the Medical Research Council Cognition,who tested brain-training software on volunteers recruited through a BBC television program.

    Owen and his colleagues asked 11,000 volunteers to take tests to measure their reasoning ability and verbal and spatial(空间的)memory.Participants then spent six weeks playing on one of two computer programs,or just surfing the web for pleasure.In one program,which imitates commercial brain-training software,the volunteers solved simple mathematics problems and puzzles that tested their memories.The other was designed specifically to boost cognitive abilities such as reasoning and planning.

    After six weeks,the participants underwent a second round of cognitive tests.Both groups who played the games made modest improvements,yet so did the web surfers.Skills learned via the programs didn't transfer to the cognitive tests,even when they relied on similar abilities,says Owen.For instance,people who played a game in which they had to find a match for a briefly overturned card struggled at a similar test that used stars "hidden" in boxes,"Even when the tests were conceptually quite similar we didn't see any improvement,"says Owen.He concludes that brain-training software only makes people better at the specific tasks they have been practicing.

    Yet Klingberg,who founded a cognitive-training firm called Cogmed,is indignant at the conclusion that all brain training is bunk.The participants in Owen's study didn't practice for long enough and there was no quality control over what practice people did,he says."Asking subjects to sit at home and do tests online,perhaps with the TV on or other distractions around,is likely to result in noisy data,"he says."This paper does in no way disprove that the brain is plastic or that cognitive functions can be improved by training."Owen counters that his team's research took place in settings similar to the ones people are likely to practice in."This is what people are doing.They're sitting at home on their computers doing brain training."
