    Getting less sleep has become a bad habit for most American kids. According to a new survey(调查) by the National Sleep Foundation, 51% of kids aged 10 to 18 go to bed at 10 pm or later on school nights, even though they have to get up early. Last year the Foundation reported that nearly 60% of 7- to 12-year-olds said they felt tired during the day, and 15% said they had fallen asleep at school.

    How much sleep you need depends a lot on your age. Babies need a lot of rest: most of them sleep about 18 hours a day! Adults need about eight hours. For most school-age children, ten hours is ideal(理想的). But the new National Sleep Foundation survey found that 35% of 10- to 12-year-olds get only seven or eight hours. And guess what almost half of the surveyed kids said they do before bedtime? Watch TV.

    More children are going to bed with TVs on, and there are more opportunities(机会) to stay awake, with more homework, the Internet and the phone, says Dr. Mary Carskadon, a sleep researcher at Brown University Medical School. She says these activities at bedtime can get kids all excited and make it hard for them to calm down and sleep. Other experts say part of the problem is chemical. Changing levels of body chemicals called hormones not only make teenagers’ bodies develop adult characteristics, but also make it hard for teenagers to fall asleep before 11 pm.

    Because sleepiness is such a problem for teenagers, some school districts have decided to start high school classes later than they used to. Three years ago, schools in Edina, Minnesota, changed the start time from 7:25 am to 8:30 am. Students, parents and teachers are pleased with the results.

    25. What is the new National Sleep Foundation survey on?

    A. American kids’ sleeping habits.                           B. Teenagers’ sleep-related diseases.

    C. Activities to prevent sleeplessness.                       D. Learning problems and lack of sleep.

    26. How many hours of sleep do 11-year-olds need every day?

    A. 7 hours.                        B. 8 hours.                C. 10 hours.              D. 18 hours.

    27. Why do teenagers go to sleep late according to Carskadon?

    A. They are affected by certain body chemicals.

    B. They tend to do things that excite them.

    C. They follow their parents’ examples.

    D. They don’t need to go to school early.

    This month, Germany’s transport minister, Alexander Dobrindt, proposed the first set of rules for autonomous vehicles(自主驾驶车辆). They would define the driver’s role in such cars and govern how such cars perform in crashes where lives might be lost.

    The proposal attempts to deal with what some call the “death valley” of autonomous vehicles: the grey area between semi-autonomous and fully driverless cars that could delay the driverless future.

    Dobrindt wants three things: that a car always chooses property(财产) damage over personal injury; that it never distinguishes between humans based on age or race; and that if a human removes his or her hands from the driving wheel — to check email, say — the car’s maker is responsible if there is a crash.

    “The change to the road traffic law will permit fully automatic driving,” says Dobrindt. It will put fully driverless cars on an equal legal footing to human drivers, he says.

    Who is responsible for the operation of such vehicles is not clear among car makers, consumers and lawyers. “The liability(法律责任) issue is the biggest one of them all,” says Natasha Merat at the University of Leeds, UK.

    An assumption behind UK insurance for driverless cars, introduced earlier this year, insists that a human “be watchful and monitoring the road” at every moment.

    But that is not what many people have in mind when thinking of driverless cars. “When you say ‘driverless cars’, people expect driverless cars.” Merat says. “You know — no driver.”

    Because of the confusion, Merat thinks some car makers will wait until vehicles can be fully automated without operation.

    Driverless cars may end up being a form of public transport rather than vehicles you own, says Ryan Calo at Stanford University, California. That is happening in the UK and Singapore, where government-provided driverless vehicles are being launched.

    That would go down poorly in the US, however. “The idea that the government would take over driverless cars and treat them as a public good would get absolutely nowhere here,” says Calo.

    46. What does the phrase “death valley” in Paragraph 2 refer to?

    A. A place where cars often break down.

    B. A case where passing a law is impossible.

    C. An area where no driving is permitted.

    D. A situation where drivers’ role is not clear.

    47. The proposal put forward by Dobrindt aims to __________.

    A. stop people from breaking traffic rules

    B. help promote fully automatic driving

    C. protect drivers of all ages and races

    D. prevent serious property damage

    48. What do consumers think of the operation of driverless cars?

    A. It should get the attention of insurance companies.

    B. It should be the main concern of law makers.

    C. It should not cause deadly traffic accidents.

    D. It should involve no human responsibility.

    49. Driverless vehicles in public transport see no bright future in _________.

    A. Singapore                         B. the UK                           C. the US                                  D. Germany

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

    A. Autonomous Driving: Whose Liability?

    B. Fully Automatic Cars: A New Breakthrough

    C. Autonomous Vehicles: Driver Removed!

    D. Driverless Cars: Root of Road Accidents

    Some of the world’s most famous musicians recently gathered in Paris and New Orleans to celebrate the first annual International Jazz Day. UNESCO( United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) recently set April 30 as a day to raise awareness of jazz music, its significance, and its potential as a unifying(联合) voice across cultures.

    Despite the celebrations, though, in the U.S. the jazz audience continues to shrink and grow older, and the music has failed to connect with younger generations.

    It’s Jason Moran’s job to help change that. As the Kennedy Center’s artistic adviser for jazz, Moran hopes to widen the audience for jazz, make the music more accessible, and preserve its history and culture.

    “Jazz seems like it’s not really a part of the American appetite,” Moran tells National Public Radio’s reporter Neal Conan. “What I’m hoping to accomplish is that mu generation and younger start to reconsider and understand that jazz is not black and write anymore. It’s actually color, and it’s actually digital.”

    Moran says one of the problems with jazz today is that the entertainment aspect of the music has been lost. “The music can’t be presented today the way it was in 1908 or 1958. It has to continue to move, because the way the world works is not the same,” says Moran.

    Last year, Moran worked on a project that arranged Fats Waller’s music for a dance party, “Just to kind of put it back in the mind that Waller is dance music as much as it is concert music,” says Moran. “For me, it’s the recontextualization. In music, where does the emotion(情感) lie? Are we, as abstract as a Charlie Parker record gets us into a dialogue about our emotions and our thoughts? Sometimes we lose sight that the music has a wider context,” says Moran, “So I want to continue those dialogue. Those are the things I want to foster.”

    28Why did UNESCO set April 30 as International Jazz Day?

    ATo remember the birth of jazz.

    BTo protect cultural diversity.

    CTo encourage people to study music.

    DTo recognize the value of jazz.

    29What does the underlined word that in Paragraph 3 refer to?

    AJazz becoming more accessible.

    BThe production of jazz growing faster.

    CJazz being less popular with the young.

    DThe jazz audience becoming larger.

    30What can we infer about Morans opinion on jazz?

    AIt will disappear gradually.

    BIt remains black and white.

    CIt should keep up with the times.

    DIt changes every 50 years.

    31Which of the following can be the best title for the text?

    AExploring the Future of jazz.

    BThe Rise and Fall of jazz.

    CThe Story of a jazz Musician.

    DCelebrating the Jazz Day.

    A new commodity brings about a highly profitable, fast-growing industry, urging antitrust(反垄断)regulators to step in to check those who control its flow. A century ago, the resource in question was oil. Now similar concerns are being raised by the giants(巨头) that deal in data, the oil of the digital age. The most valuable firms are Google, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft. All look unstoppable.

    Such situations have led to calls for the tech giants to be broken up. But size alone is not a crime. The giants’ success has benefited consumers. Few want to live without search engines or a quick delivery, Far from charging consumers high prices, many of these services are free (users pay, in effect, by handing over yet more data). And the appearance of new-born giants suggests that newcomers can make waves, too.

          But there is cause for concern. The internet has made data abundant, all-present and far more valuable, changing the nature of data and competition. Google initially used the data collected from users to target advertising better. But recently it has discovered that data can be turned into new services: translation and visual recognition, to be sold to other companies. Internet companies’ control of data gives them enormous power. So they have a “God’s eye view” of activities in their own markets and beyond.

    This nature of data makes the antitrust measures of the past less useful. Breaking up firms like Google into five small ones would not stop remaking themselves: in time, one of them would become great again. A rethink is required—and as a new approach starts to become apparent, two ideas stand out.

    The first is that antitrust authorities need to move form the industrial age into the 21st century. When considering a merger(兼并), for example, they have traditionally used size to determine when to step in. They now need to take into account the extent of firms’ data assets(资产) when assessing the impact of deals. The purchase price could also be a signal that an established company is buying a new-born threat. When this takes place, especially when a new-born company has no revenue to speak of, the regulators should raise red flags.

           The second principle is to loosen the control that providers of on-line services have over data and give more to those who supply them.Companies could be forced to consumers what information they hold and how much

     money they make from it. Governments could order the sharing of certain kinds of data, with users’ consent.

           Restarting antitrust for the information age will not be easy But if governments don’t wants a data economy by a few giants, they must act soon. 

    61.Why is there a call to break up giants?

    A. They have controlled the data market.                            B. They collect enormous private data.

    C. They no longer provide free services.                      D. They dismissed some new-born giants.

    62.What does the technological innovation in Paragraph 3 indicate?

    A. Data giants’ technology is very expensive.               B. Google’s idea is popular among data firms

    C. Data can strengthen giants’ controlling position.              D. Data can be turned into new services or products

    63.By paying attention to firms’ data assets, antitrust regulators could        .

    A. kill a new threat                                                    B. avoid the size trap

    C. favour bigger firms                                               D. charge higher prices

    64.What is the purpose of loosening the giants’ control of data?

    A. Big companies could relieve data security pressure.

    B. Governments could relieve their financial pressure.

    C. Consumers could better protect their privacy.

    D. Small companies could get more opportunities.

       Hollywood’s theory that machines with evil(邪恶) minds will drive armies of killer robots is just silly. The real problem relates to the possibility that artificial intelligence(AI) may become extremely good at achieving something other than what we really want. In 1960 a well-known mathematician Norbert Wiener, who founded the field of cybernetics(控制论), put it this way: “If we use, to achieve our purposes, a mechanical agency with whose operation we cannot effectively interfere(干预), we had better be quite sure that the purpose put into the machine is the purpose which we really desire.”

       A machine with a specific purpose has another quality, one that we usually associate with living things: a wish to preserve its own existence. For the machine, this quality is not in-born, nor is it something introduced by humans; it is a logical consequence of the simple fact that the machine cannot achieve its original purpose if it is dead. So if we send out a robot with the single instruction of fetching coffee, it will have a strong desire to secure success by disabling its own off switch or even killing anyone who might interfere with its task. If we are not careful, then, we could face a kind of global chess match against very determined, super intelligent machines whose objectives conflict with our own, with the real world as the chessboard.

       The possibility of entering into and losing such a match should concentrate the minds of computer scientists. Some researchers argue that we can seal the machines inside a kind of firewall, using them to answer difficult questions but never allowing them to affect the real world. Unfortunately, that plan seems unlikely to work: we have yet to invent a firewall that is secure against ordinary humans, let alone super intelligent machines.

       Solving the safety problem well enough to move forward in AI seems to be possible but not easy. There are probably decades in which to plan for the arrival of super intelligent machines. But the problem should not be dismissed out of hand, as it has been by some AI researchers. Some argue that humans and machines can coexist as long as they work in teams—yet that is not possible unless machines share the goals of humans. Others say we can just “switch them off” as if super intelligent machines are too stupid to think of that possibility. Still others think that super intelligent AI will never happen. On September 11, 1933, famous physicist Ernest Rutherford stated, with confidence, “Anyone who expects a source of power in the transformation of these atoms is talking moonshine.” However, on September 12, 1933, physicist Leo Szilard invented the neutron-induced(中子诱导) nuclear chain reaction.

    67. Paragraph 1 mainly tells us that artificial intelligence may         .

    A. run out of human control

    B. satisfy human’s real desires

    C. command armies of killer robots

    D. work faster than a mathematician

    68. Machines with specific purposes are associated with living things partly because they might be able to        .

    A. prevent themselves from being destroyed

    B achieve their original goals independently

    C. do anything successfully with given orders

    D. beat humans in international chess matches

    69. According to some researchers, we can use firewalls to           .

    A. help super intelligent machines work better

    B. be secure against evil human beings

    C. keep machines from being harmed

    D. avoid robots’ affecting the world

    70. What does the author think of the safety problem of super intelligent machines?

    A. It will disappear with the development of AI.

    B. It will get worse with human interference.

    C. It will be solved but with difficulty.

    D. It will stay for a decade.

        They are most likely to be healthy, wealthy and wise, according to the old saying.

    But those who are early to bed and early to rise do not always have the upper hand, researchers say. They have revealed that night owls are generally brighter and wealthier than those able to get up early in the morning.

        Experts from the University of Madrid carried out tests on around 1,000 teenagers and found that those who preferred to stay up late demonstrated the kind of intelligence associated with honored jobs and higher incomes. ‘Larks' or ‘morning people’, however, often acquired better exam results, possibly because lessons are held at the wrong time of day for night owls. The researchers examined the habits and body clocks of the youngsters to determine whether they liked to stay up late and sleep in later in the morning, or preferred to go to bed early and were at their peak in the morning. School performance and inductive (归纳的) intelligence, or problem solving, were measured and academic grades in the major subjects were also taken into account. The results showed that evening types scored higher than morning types on inductive reasoning, which has been shown to be a good estimate of general intelligence and a strong indicator of academic performance. They also had a greater capacity to think conceptually as well as analytically. Such abilities have been linked to innovative thinking, more admired occupations and better incomes.

        Famous night owls include President Obama, Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill, Keith Richards and Elvis Presley. George W. Bush, who is regularly in bed by 10pm, Thomas Edison, Napoleon, Condoleezza Rice, who wakes at 4.30am, and Ernest Hemingway are among those known as larks. Jim Horne, professor of psychophysiology at Loughborough University, said: "Evening types tend to be the more active and creative types, like the poets, artists and inventors, while the morning types are the deducers (推断者), as are often seen with civil servants and accountants." A previous study of US Air Force recruits found evening types were much better at thinking laterally (横向) to solve problems than larks.

    28. The following features belong to night owls except that _______.

     A. Night owls are much healthier, wealthier and wiser

     B. Night owls have a strong ability to reason logically

     C. Night owls stay up late and sleep later in the morning

     D. Night owls are expert in analyzing and innovative thinking

    29. What's the author's attitude towards night owls?

     A. Skeptical.    B. Negative.        C. Subjective.      D. Objective.

    30. According to the passage, which of the following is true?

     A. The early bird will catch the worm.

     B. Morning types have a tendency to do some creative jobs.

     C. Night owls usually do poorer in the examinations than larks.

     D. President Obama and George W. Bush are models of night owls.

    How old is “old”? The answer has changed over the years. Two Hundred years ago, you were old at 35. At the beginning of the 20th century, the average life span(平均寿命) was 45. In 1950, 70-year-olds were really old. Today a healthy 70-year-old is still thought young.

           “Nobody grows old by living a number of years, ” Wrote a writer. “People grow old when they don’t have their ideals(理想).” People shouldn’t have the wrong ideas about aging. Sometimes, older minds can be bright as young minds. Alice Brophy once said, “It makes me unhappy when people say, ‘You look young for your age.’ What does that mean? You know you can die old at 30 and live young at 80.” as

    Thoughts are our own ideas and opinions. They have deep effects on your life and guide us through both happiness and adversities, especially when we meet with life troubles.

    Thoughts can be divided into two parts: good and bad thoughts. Good thoughts or positive thinking lead to good character and when it appears in action, which is known as behaviors. On the contrary, bad thoughts lead to bad mental quality. Gandhi and Mandela were the result of good thoughts whereas Hitler and Mussolini became the villains(坏人) of history because of bad thoughts.

    Our thoughts are magical. Thoughts are powerful forces of energy. Thoughts create everything we want in life. Thoughts only come from our mind and we are the person in charge of our mind. So we create the thought and it create the circumstances (形势) in our life. Since our thoughts create our reality, we create our reality too. Life is full of hardships and dreams may break, but the reality remains the same. So our words and thoughts are more valuable than quotes (引述) pulled from texts or webs. Intelligence, nature and temperament are born qualities and never change. They have great influence on thought.

      A person’s feelings and thoughts could be best presented through the words and sentences that flow naturally from his heart. When we use our thoughts, what we think becomes a pioneer and it represents us. Shakespeare had used his own words and today he’s still alive as “king of dramas”. No pioneers in the history mixed their thoughts and feeling with those of their seniors.

      In conclusion, positive thought changes a person in doing magical deeds. Life is a constant struggle against the forces of darkness that exists in form of the anger, hatred, violence, greed and root cause of all ignorance. The starting point of success truly then is optimism and hope, positive thinking and faiths. Thus the use of our own words and thoughts are more valuable than quotes pulled from webs.

    27. What does the underlined word refer to?

    A. Healthy states.                   B. Useful suggestions. 

    C. Unusual experiences.              D. Daily difficulties.

    28. What can positive thinking bring about?

    A. Good mental quality.              B. Polite behaviors.  

    C. Every success.                    D. Unbelievable failures.

    29. We can infer from the third paragraph that ______.

    A. thoughts are powerful forces of energy.   

    B. thoughts can create everything

    C. we’d depend on our thoughts rather than quotes of textbooks or webs.

    D. thoughts come from human beings and other living creatures.

    30. How do people best present their feelings and thoughts?

    A. By communicating with others.         B. By saying what they think naturally.

    C. By expressing his cheating words.         D. By giving examples and stories.

    Augusto Esquivel is a sculptor who, in his own words, is “crazy with comparisons of reality and potential and the balance between them.” Perhaps the best example of what he’s talking about are his most famous creations: the suspended(悬挂的) button sculptures.

    Made entirely from buttons hanging on various lengths of string, Esquivel’s sculptures are made to look like common objects: a piano, a gumball machine, and even a toilet. If it wasn’t for the clear string hanging above, these objects, these sculptures, would look solid, yet you can put your hands right through them. The process starts with him deciding on a subject and setting the acrylic (丙烯酸树脂)from where the buttons are being suspended. He buys buttons of different shapes and sizes, paints them with spray paint, and carefully hangs them. After that, it’s a manner of hanging each individual button, which takes a lot of time. For his piano, for example, he individually hung over 60 pounds worth of tiny buttons.

    Esquivel’s sculptures, while mostly housed inside art galleries, perfectly capture one of the main principles of street art: something that is eye-catching and something that invites interaction. Often the best sculptures outside the art galleries aren’t the ones behind guards and fencing, but the ones people can go right up to and touch. In Vancouver, a series of laughing old men are attracting people for pictures and to just generally hang around, but the people who simply walk by and see the sculptures almost always leave with a smile on their face. That’s good street art: it draws the viewer in rather than relying on a gallery to draw in an audience and point them to certain pieces.

    Esquivel’s art is not only a presentation of talent, something that mentions larger philosophical questions, like the ones he stated above, but also just the right combination of interesting idea and painstaking work. One can look at his work in a critical way, or simply appreciate his idea and execution(艺术品的制作).

    13. What are Esquivel’s sculptures mainly made of?

    A. Clay.

    B. Iron.

    C. Gum.

     D. Buttons.

    14. Which statement is WRONG according to Paragraph 3?

    A. Some of Esquivel’s sculptures are displayed outside art galleries.

    B. Esquivel’s art is good street art.

    C. People can’t touch Esquivel’s sculptures involve interaction.

    D. Esquivel’s sculptures can catch people’s eye and involve interaction.

    15. Which of the following in NOT what Esquivel’s art wants to present?

    A. Talent.

    B. Idealism.

    C. Philosophical questions.

    D. Painstaking work.

    While the U.S. is still debating about getting rid of the penny, Sweden is rapidly moving towards abolishing currency altogether. Though this may sound radical(过激的), it is a natural evolution in this digital society.

    Sweden, which was the first European country to introduce banknotes in 1661, has just been working harder to convince its residents that digital payments are a safer alternative to carrying cash.

    Over the years, the idea has gained popularity with residents, especially the younger generation that is much more comfortable with technology. Today many banks dont even have ATMs and some have stopped handling cash altogether!

    Tickets to ride public buses in most Swedish cities can only be purchased via cell phones. Numerous businesses are also moving towards accepting only digital payments. Even the homeless that sell street paper to make ends meet have to start accepting this mode of payment!

    But despite its growing popularity, some people dont like this radical idea. They include the homeless, elderly people as well as those living in rural areas who are still uncomfortable with mobile phones and computers. But the officials are confident that in the very near future, they will be able to convince everyone to move this safe and more cost-effective payment system.

    Sweden is not the only country trying to abolish paper currency and coins. The movement is rapidly gaining ground in Denmark and Finland as well. In 2014, Israel announced a three-step plan to go cashless and just last week the vendors(小贩)of a popular street in Sydney declared they would stop accepting currency from customers. Whether this phenomenon spreads remains to be seen. But one thing is for sureWith increasingly advanced payment systems being introduced every day, pulling out cash is rapidly becoming uncool.

    9. What can we infer from Paragraph 3 and 4?

    A. Many banks in Sweden dont have ATMs.

    B. You dont have to buy tickets when riding buses.

    C. People dont give the homeless money but food.

    D. People can just take cell phones when shopping.

    10. According to the passage, which information is RIGHT?

    A. Sweden was the first country to get the idea to abolish currency.

    B. The younger generation is opposed to the measures.

    C. Bus fare can only be purchased via cell phones in most Swedish cities.

    D. Banks in Sweden have stopped dealing with cash completely.

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

    A. An Advanced Country Sweden

    B. A Controversial Government Policy

    C. Sweden to Influence the Worlds Cash Payment

    D. Sweden to Become the Worlds First Cashless Society

    12. Which of the following categories does this passage belong to?

    It seems the more time we have, the longer we put off living the life we see in our heads, because we feel like we’ve got some time to kill.

    I know where you think I’m going with this, and I also know you’ve heard it all before: seize the day, make the most of it, live life to its fullest, and so on. But that’s the problem. You’ve heard it all before. These ideas have their impact and have become a cliché. Luckily, that’s not my thing.

    The real answers wake something up inside you. They make you think. That’s what I want to give you today, the story of Bobby Darin, which wakes you up to the truth.

    If you haven’t heard of the man, I know you’ve heard his songs. Among his many hits are Mack the Knife, Beyond the Sea, Dream Lover, and Splish Splash.

    If seven years, Darin had several top ten hit songs, was nominated(提名) for four Grammy Awards (winning two), nominated for four Golden Globes (winning one), and even nominated for an Oscar.

    So what was his secret?

    All his life, Darin had a heart condition that developed from a childhood illness. The doctors at the time said he would be lucky to live to 16. In other words, his time was limited. And this was secret. He knew the truth. He knew that we all have such a hard time accepting: Life is short. You can’t just say it; you can’t just hear it. You have to know it, believe it, and feel it. Because Darin knew his time was limited, he packed as much life as he could into the time he had. But he had an unfair advantage. He knew, without a doubt, his time was limited.

    There was no fooling himself, no putting it off. It was now or never.

    1. Why do we all have the habit of delaying doing things?

    A. Because we think we have time to count our thumb.

    B. Because we want to live our life to its fullest.

    C. Because we think time and tide wait for no man.

    D. Because it takes time to build castle.

    2. The underlined word “cliché” in the second paragraph probably means            .

    A. motto 

    B. legend

    C. often-made remark

    D. long-lost verse

    3. What can we know about Bobby Darin from the passage?

    A. He was nominated and won the Oscar Reward.

    B. He committed suicide at home at last.

    C. He got involved I not only music field but directing.

    D. He took a positive attitude towards his illness.

    4. What is the secret to Bobby Darin’s success?

    A. He knew his life expectancy was short.

    B. He was too eager to become famous.

    C. He was so devoted to music.

    D. He was talented.

    Among rich countries, people in the United States work the longest hours. They work much longer than in Europe. This difference is quite surprising because productivity per hour worked is the same in the United States as it is in France, Spain and Germany, and it is growing at a similar speed.

        In most countries and at most times in history, as people have become richer they have chosen to work less. In other words, they have decided to “spend” a part of their extra income on a fuller personal life. Over the last fifty years Europeans have continued this pattern, and hours of work have fallen sharply. But not in the United States. We do not fully know why this is. One reason may be more satisfying work, or less satisfying personal lives.

    Longer hours do of course increase the GDP (国内生产总值). So the United States has produced more per worker than, say, France. The United States also has more of its people at work, while in France many more mothers and older workers have decided to stay at home. The overall result is that American GDP per head is 40% higher than in France, even though productivity per hour worked is the same.

    It is not clear which of the two situations is better. As we have seen, work has to be compared with other values like family life, which often get lost in interest. It is too early to explain the different trends(趋势) in happiness over time in different countries. But it is a disappointing idea that in the United States happiness has made no progress since 1975, while it has risen in Europe. Could this have anything to do with trends in the work-life balance?

    31.Which of the following countries has more of its people at work?

    A. Spain           B. France       C. Germany         D. America.

    32.In the last paragraph, the underlined word “which” refers to_______.

    A. family life       B. situations     C. other values       D. trends

    33.What message can we get from the text?

    A. The GDP of Europe is higher than that of America.

    B. Two possible reasons are given for working longer hours in the US.

    C. People all over the world choose to work less when they are richer.

    D. Americans are happier than Europeans.

    34.From the text we know that the author        .

    A. believes that longer working hours is better

    B. prefers shorter working hours to longer ones

    C. says nothing certain about which pattern is better

    D. thinks neither of the patterns is good

    35.Which of the following would be the best title for the text?

    A. Americans and Europeans        B. Staying at Home

    C. Work and Productivity           D. Work and Happiness

    While reading a book in English, every few lines of text, you run across a word or two that you don’t know. You look up every new word in the dictionary. Bad move. All that does slow you down. Even electric or CD –ROM dictionaries can get in the way of your reading progress. A dictionary is like a road map. It can help you if you get lost and point you in the right direction. But if you stop to look at the “map” each time you take a step, you’ll get nowhere fast.
        On your English learning “journey”, a dictionary can be a helpful “travel companion ”--if it is not overused. To help you start thinking in English, use an English-to-English dictionary. Otherwise, you will always depend on your native language and end up translating in your head.
        A good dictionary can help you do more than just find the meaning of a word. It can help you verify (test and check) spelling, check word forms and grammar usage, find example sentence and learn pronunciation. Some dictionaries even provide exercises to teach you how to use their resources (
    资源) .
        Take time to get to know your dictionary. Learn the pronunciation symbols (
    符号). Understand what the abbreviations (缩写字) mean. Try to master the important grammar rules. Look for charts, diagrams and lists that might be useful in the future. You will discover how helpful it can be to make friends with your dictionary. And as they say, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.”
    28. Why do we need a good English-to-English dictionary?
    A. Because it is a good friend.
    B. Because it can help us to find the right direction if we get lost.
    C. Without it we’ll always depend on our native language and end up translating in our head.
    D. Because it can help us to start thinking in English and in Chinese.
    29. The underlined word “that ” in the last paragraph refers to __________.
    A. pronunciation symbols and grammar rules

    Frankenstein

    Frankenstein was a book by Mary Shelly ----it’s been adapted for the screen dozens of times.  The story of Frankenstein is told through a series of letters written by Captain Robert Walton to his sister , as he leads an expedition (长征)to the North Pole . On the way , he meets Victor Frankenstein , who tells Walton the story of his life. Frankenstein is the surname of the guy who creates the monster . The monster doesn’t actually have a game . Anyway , Victor is a scientist who’s desperate to discover the secret of life . After years of study , he makes an enormous creature out of human remains and brings it to life . Victor intends it to be beautiful . Unfortunately , the creature turns out really hideous , and Victor runs away in terror . Although the monster is good and kind , humans are scared of it . When they mistreat it , the monster becomes angry and evil . Wanting revenge on its creator , the monster murders Dr. Frankenstein’s brother , his wife , and his best friend . When Victor figures out the monster is behind all the deaths , he swears to track it down and kill it .

    This book was written in 1816, right after  a period called the Enlightenment . The Enlightenment emphasized the pursuit of knowledge and reason , and gave rise to the scientific method . Mary Shelley criticized the Enlightenment through the character of Victor Frankenstein , He is a negative example of an Enlightenment scientist -------he pursues knowledge at any cost , and his obsession with discovering the secret of life destroys him , as well as his friends and family . Some Enlightenment thinkers might have seen such a loss as necessary for the advancement of science , but not Mary Shelley . She and her husband , poet Percy Shelly , were part of the Romanic Movement in art and literature . Romancism was a reacrion against the Enlightenment’s embrace of rationality and reason . The Romantics emphasized emotion over rationality , and thought people should feel awe and terror in regard to nature . Frankenstein incorporates all these ideas. To Shelley , Frankenstein doesn’t fear and respect the world of nature enough ------she says that by tempering with  nature , he brings about complete disaster . Frankenstein is not just a great Romantic novel . It’s also considered one of the first major works of science fiction . It influences a whole generation of writers , and the monster has become one of the most recognizable figures in Western culture.

    56. Which of the following is closest in the meaning to ‘hideous’ in Paragraph 1?

    A. Unattractive    B. Engaging   C. Charming   D. Handsome

    58.  How was the Romantic era different from the Enlightenment ?

    A. The Romantic era emphasized emotion ; the Enlightenment emphasized reason .

    B. The Romantic era occurred during the 20th century ; the Enlightenment occurred during the 19th century .

    C. The Romantic era emphasized poetry ; the Enlightenment emphasized prose .

    D. The Romantic era saw major scientific discoveries ; the Enlightenment was an era of literary discovery .

    Its hard to find Alice Munro in the media. Even after she won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Canadian writer just appeared for a quick interview and then dropped out of sight. On Dec 29th, she still didnt seek the spotlight when she was named one of the five Women of the Year by the Financial Times.

    In Munros eyes, ordinary lives always hide larger dramas. So she records what we casually think of as the everyday actions of normal people. She often focuses on life in her hometown, a small village in Ontario which she is most familiar with. She writes about the ordinary things in the village — trees in the Ontario wilderness, poor country schools and long last illnesses. Above all, she talks about girls and women who have seemingly ordinary lives but struggle against daily misfortune.

    She has a special talent for uncovering the extraordinary in the ordinary. These are ordinary people, ordinary stories, but she has the magic. Her precise language, depth of detail and the logic of her storytelling have made her stories inviting.

        Runaway, one of Munros representative works, is a good example of her writing style. One of the stories centers on the life of an ordinary woman Carla, who lives in a small Canadian town with her husband Clark. The story slowly forms a picture of Carla, trapped in a bad marriage, her unhappiness building into desperation until she decides to flee. The story of Carla is a story of the power and betrayals of love. It is about lost children and lost chances that we can all find in life. There is pain beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart.

        Since she published her first collection of short stories in 1968, Munro has won many awards, with the Nobel Prize being her biggest honor. On Oct 10th, 2013, the Nobel Prize committee named Munro the “master of the contemporary short story”.

    32. We learn from Paragraph 1 that Alice Munro          .

    A. didn't get on well with the media

    B. was surprised at winning the Nobel Prize

    C. remained modest though very successful

    D. didn't value the title of Women of the Year

    33. Many of Alice Munros works         .

    A. focus on everyday life of ordinary people

    B. center on the happy life of country women

    C. are about betrayals of love and violence

     D. are romantic stories setting in her hometown

    34. What makes Alice Munros stories fascinating according to the text?

    A. The complicated plots.  

    B. Her rich imagination.

    C. The humorous language.

    D. Her writing techniques.

    35. What is the text mainly about?

    A. Alice Munro and her hometown.  

    B. Alice Munro and her writing style. 

    C. Alice Munro's representative works.

       Text messaging is a surprisingly good way to receive candid responses to sensitive questions, according to a new study to be presented this week at the annual meeting of the American Association for Public Opinion Research. “The preliminary(初步的)results of our study suggest that people are more likely to disclose sensitive information via text messages than in voice interviews,” says Fred Conrad, a psychologist at the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research.

        “This is sort of surprising,” says Conrad, “since many people thought that texting would decrease the likelihood of disclosing sensitive information because it creates a persistent, visual record of questions and answers that others might see on your phone and in the cloud.”

        With text, the researchers also found that people were less likely to engage in “satisficing”--- a survey industry term referring to the common practice of giving good enough, easy answers. “We believe people give more precise answers via texting because there's just not the time pressure in a largely asynchronous(非同步的)mode like text that there is in phone interviews, ” says Conrad. “As a result, respondents are able to take longer to arrive at more accurate answers.”

        Conrad conducted the study with Michael Schober, a professor of psychology at the New School for Social Research. “We're in the early stages of analyzing our findings,” says Schober. “But so far it seems that texting may reduce some respondents' tendency to shade the truth or to present themselves in the best possible light in an interview, even when they know it's a human interviewer they are communicating with via text. What we cannot yet be sure of is who is most likely to be disclosive in text. Is it different for frequent texters, or generational, for example? ”

        For the study, the researchers recruited approximately 600 iPhone-users through Google Ads, offering them iTunes Store rewards to participate in the study. Their goals were to see whether responses to the same questions differed depending on several variables(可变因素)whether the questions were asked via text or voice, whether a human or a computer asked the questions, and whether the environment, including the presence of other people and the likelihood of multitasking, affected the answers.

    32. The underlined word “candid” in Para.1 probably means       .

        A. straightforward     B. doubtful  C. general      D. imaginary

    33. We can learn from the passage that       

    A. people fond of text messaging are more honest

    B. texting will give away less sensitive information

    C. different variables might affect the responses of messaging

    D. about 600 iPhone users have been awarded iTunes by researchers

    34. Compared with phone interviews, texting has the advantage that people could       .          

    A. present their best to the interviewers

    B. have more time to make a reply

    C. pay less for sending a message

    D. enjoy more freedom of speech

    35. Which is the best title for the passage?

    A. Texting Downs Responses         B. Texting Exposes Identity

    C. Texting Benefits Interviewees      D. Texting Ups Truthfulness

        “This is sort of surprising,” says Conrad, “since many people thought that texting would decrease the likelihood of disclosing sensitive information because it creates a persistent, visual record of questions and answers that others might see on your phone and in the cloud.”

        With text, the researchers also found that people were less likely to engage in “satisficing”--- a survey industry term referring to the common practice of giving good enough, easy answers. “We believe people give more precise answers via texting because there's just not the time pressure in a largely asynchronous(非同步的)mode like text that there is in phone interviews, ” says Conrad. “As a result, respondents are able to take longer to arrive at more accurate answers.”

        Conrad conducted the study with Michael Schober, a professor of psychology at the New School for Social Research. “We're in the early stages of analyzing our findings,” says Schober. “But so far it seems that texting may reduce some respondents' tendency to shade the truth or to present themselves in the best possible light in an interview, even when they know it's a human interviewer they are communicating with via text. What we cannot yet be sure of is who is most likely to be disclosive in text. Is it different for frequent texters, or generational, for example? ”

        For the study, the researchers recruited approximately 600 iPhone-users through Google Ads, offering them iTunes Store rewards to participate in the study. Their goals were to see whether responses to the same questions differed depending on several variables(可变因素)whether the questions were asked via text or voice, whether a human or a computer asked the questions, and whether the environment, including the presence of other people and the likelihood of multitasking, affected the answers.
