    Benjamin West, the father of American painting, showed his talent for art when he was only six years of age. But he did not know about brushes before a visitor told him he needed one. In those days, a brush was made from camel’s hair. There were no camels nearby. Benjamin decided that cat hair would work instead. He cut some fur from the family cat to make a brush.

    The brush did not last long. Soon Benjamin needed more fur. Before long, the cat began to look ragged (蓬乱). His father said that the cat must be sick. Benjamin was forced to admit what he had been doing.

    The cat’s lot was about to improve. That year, one of Benjamin’s cousins, Mr. Pennington, came to visit. He was impressed with Benjamin’s drawings. When he went home, he sent Benjamin a box of paint and some brushes. He also sent six engravings(版画) by an artist. These were the first pictures and first real paint and brushes Benjamin had ever seen. In 1747, when Benjamin was nine years old, Mr. Pennington returned for another visit. He was amazed at what Benjamin had done with his gift. He asked Benjamin’s parents if he might take the boy to Philadelphia for a visit.

    In the city, Mr. Pennington gave Benjamin materials for creating oil paintings. The boy began a landscape(风景) painting. William Williams, a well-known painter, came to see him work. Williams was impressed with Benjamin and gave him two classic books on painting to take home. The books were long and dull. Benjamin could read only a little, having been a poor student. But he later said,Those two books were my companions by day, and under my pillow at night.While it is likely that he understood very little of the books, they were his introduction to classical paintings. The nine-year-old boy decided then that he would be an artist.

    21. What is the text mainly about?

    A. Benjamin’s visit to Philadelphia.

    B. Williams’ influence on Benjamin.

    C. The beginning of Benjamin’s life as an artist.

    D. The friendship between Benjamin and Pennington.

    22. What does the underlined sentence in paragraph 3 suggest?

    A. The cat would be closely watched.

    B. The cat would get some medical care.

    C. Benjamin would leave his home shortly.

    D. Benjamin would have real brushes soon.

    23. What did Pennington do to help Benjamin develop his talent?

    A. He took him to see painting exhibitions.

    B. He provided him with painting materials.

    C. He sent him to a school in Philadelphia.

    D. He taught him how to make engravings.

    24. Williams’ two books helped Benjamin to ________.

    A. master the use of paints

    B. appreciate landscape paintings

    C. get to know other painters

    D. make up his mind to be a painter

    Fifteen years ago, I took a summer vacation in Lecce in southern Italy. After climbing up a hill for a panoramic(全景的) view of the blue sea, white buildings and green olive trees, I paused to catch my breath and then positioned myself to take the best photo of this panorama.

           Unfortunately, just as I took out my camera, a woman approached from behind, and planted herself right in front of my view. Like me, this woman was here to stop, sigh and appreciate the view.

           Patient as I was, after about 15 minutes, my camera scanning the sun and reviewing the shot I would eventually take, I grew frustrated. Was it too much to ask her to move so I could take just one picture of the landscape? Sure, I could have asked her, but something prevented me from doing so. She seemed so content in her observation. I didn’t want to mess with that.

           Another 15 minutes passed and I grew bored. The woman was still there. I decided to take the photo anyway. And now when I look at it, I think her presence in the photo is what makes the image interesting. The landscape, beautiful on its own, somehow comes to life and breathes because this woman is engaging with it.

           This photo, with the unique beauty that unfolded before me and that woman who “ruined” it, now hangs on a wall in my bedroom. What would she think if she knew that her figure is captured(捕捉) and frozen on some stranger’s bedroom wall? A bedroom, after all, is a very private space, in which some woman I don’t even know has been immortalized(使……永存). In some ways, she lives in my house.

           Perhaps we all live in each others’ spaces. Perhaps this is what photos are for: to remind us that we all appreciate beauty, that we all share a common desire for pleasure, for connection, for something that is greater than us.

           That photo is a reminder, a captured moment, an unspoken conversation between two women, separated only by a thin square of glass.

    41. What happened when the author was about to take a photo?

    A. Her camera stopped working.

    B. A woman blocked her view.

    C. Someone asked her to leave.

    D. A friend approached from behind.

    42. According to the author, the woman was probably_______.

    A. enjoying herself

    B. losing her patience

    C. waiting for the sunset

    D. thinking about her past

    43. In the author’s opinion, what makes the photo so alive?

    A. The rich color of the landscape.

    B. The perfect positioning of the camera.

    C. The woman’s existence in the photo.

    D. The soft sunlight that summer day.

    44. The photo on the bedroom wall enables the author to better understand ________.

    A. the need to be close to nature

    B. the importance of private space

    C. the joy of the vacation in Italy

    D. the shared passion for beauty

    45. The passage can be seen as the author’s reflections upon _________.

    A. a particular life experience                                                 B. the pleasure of traveling

    C. the art of photography                                                       D. a lost friendship

           I work with Volunteers for Wildlife, a rescue and education organization at Bailey Arboretum in Locust Valley. Trying to help injured, displaced or sick creatures can be heartbreaking; survival is never certain. However, when it works, it is simply beautiful.

           I got a rescue call from a woman in Muttontown. She had found a young owl(猫头鹰) on the ground. When I arrived, I saw a 2-to 3-week-old owl. It had already been placed in a carrier for safety.

           I examined the chick(雏鸟) and it seemed fine. If I could locate the nest, I might have been able to put it back, but no luck. My next work was to construct a nest and anchor it in a tree.

           The homeowner was very helpful. A wire basket was found. I put some pine branches into the basket to make this nest safe and comfortable. I placed the chick in the nest, and it quickly calmed down.

           Now all that was needed were the parents, but they were absent. I gave the homeowner a recording of the hunger screams of owl chicks. These advertise the presence of chicks to adults; they might also encourage our chick to start calling as well. I gave the owner as much information as possible and headed home to see what news the night might bring.

           A nervous night to be sure,but sometimes the spirits of nature smile on us all! The homeowner called to say that the parents had responded to the recordings. I drove over and saw the chick in the nest looking healthy and active. And it was accompanied in the nest by the greatest sight of all LUNCHThe parents had done their duty and would probably continue to do so.

    24.What is unavoidable in the author’s rescue work according ro paragraph 1?
    A.Efforts made in vain.
    B.Getting injured in his work.
    C.Feeling uncertain about his future.
    D.Creatures forced out of their homes.
    25.Why was the author called to Muttontown?
    A.To rescue a woman.

    B.To take care of a woman.
    C.To look at a baby owl.

    D.To cure a young owl.
    26.What made the chick calm down?
    A.A new nest.

    B.Some food.
    C.A recording.

    D.Its parents.
    27.How would the author feel about the outcome of the event?
    A.It’s unexpected.

    B. It’s beautiful.
    C. It’s humorous.

    D. It’s discouraging.

        It was a cold March day in High Point, North Carolina. The girls on the Wesleyan Academy softball were waiting for their next turns at bat during practice, stamping their feet to stay warm, Eighth-grader Taylor Bisbee shivered(发抖) a little as she watched her teammate Paris White play. The two didn’t know each other well — Taylor had just moved to town a month or so before.

        Suddenly, Paris fell to the ground,“Paris’s eye rolled back,” Taylor says. “She started shaking. I knew it was an emergency.”

        It certainly was, Paris had suffered a sudden heart failure. Without immediate medical care, Paris would die.  At first no one moved. The girls were in shock. Then the softball coach shouted out, “Does anyone know CPR?”

        CPR is a life-saving technique. To do CPR, you press on the sick person’s chest so that blood moves through the body and takes oxygen to organs. Without oxygen the brain is damaging quickly.

    Amazingly, Taylor had just taken a CPR course the day before. Still, she hesitated. She didn’t think she knew it well enough. But when no one else came forward, Taylor ran to Paris and began doing CPR, “It was scary. I knew it was the difference between life and death,” says Taylor.

    Taylor’s swift action helped her teammates calm down. One girl called 911. Two more ran to get the school nurse, who brought a defibrillator, an electronic devices(器械) that can shock the heart back into work. Luck stayed with them: Paris’ heartbeat returned.

    “I know I was really lucky,” Paris says now. “Most people don’t survive this. My team saved my life.”

    Experts say Paris is right: For a sudden heart failure, the single best chance for survival is having someone nearby step in and do CPR quickly.

    Today, Paris is back on the softball team. Taylor will apply to college soon. She wants to be a nurse. “I feel more confident in my actions now,” Taylor says. “I know I can act under pressure in a scary situation.”

    56.What happened to Paris on a March day?

    A. She caught a bad cold.

    B. She had a sudden heart problem.

    C. She was knocked down by a ball.

    D. She shivered terribly during practice

    57.Why does Paris say she was lucky?

    A. She made a worthy friend.

    B. She recovered from shock.

    C. She received immediate CPR.

    D. She came back on the softball team.

    58.Which of the following words can best describe Taylor?

    A. Enthusiastic and kind.

    B. Courageous and calm.

    C. Cooperative and generous.

    D. Ambitious and professional.

    I first met Paul Newman in 1968, when George Roy Hill, the director of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, introduced us in New York City. When the studio didn’t want me for the film— it wanted somebody as well known as Paul— he stood up for me. I don’t know how many people would have done that; they would have listened to their agents or the studio powers.

    The friendship that grew out of the experience of making that film and The Sting four years later had its root in the fact that although there was an age difference, we both came from a tradition of theater and live TV. We were respectful of craft(技艺)and focused on digging into the characters we were going to play. Both of us had the qualities and virtues that are typical of American actors: humorous, aggressive, and making fun of each other— but always with an underlying affection. Those were also at the core (核心)of our relationship off the screen.

    We shared the brief that if you’re fortunate enough to have success, you should put something back— he with his Newman’s Own food and his Hole in the Wall camps for kids who are seriously ill, and me with Sundance and the institute and the festival. Paul and I didn’t see each other all that regularly, zxx.k but sharing that brought us together. We supported each other financially and by showing up at events.

    I last saw him a few months ago. He’d been in  and out of the hospital.He and I both knew what the deal was,and we didn’t talk about it.Ours was a relationship that didn’t need a lot of words.

    24.Why was the studio unwilling to give the role to author at first?

    A.Paul Newman wanted it.

    B.The studio powers didn’t like his agent.

    C.He wasn’t famous enough.

    D.The director recommended someone else.

    25.Why did Paul and the author have a lasting friendship?

    A.They were of the same dge.

    B.They worked in the same theater.

    C.They were both good actors.

    D.They han similar charactertics.

    26.What does the underlined word “that” in paragraph 3 refer to?

    A.Their belief.

    B.Their care for chileden.

    C.Their success.

    D.Their support for each other.

    27.What is the author’s purpose in writing the test?

    A.To show his love of films.

    B.To remember a friend.

    C.To introduce a new movie.

    D.To share his acting experience.

    Many years ago, I made a living by driving a car. One night I went to pick up a passenger at 2:30 am. When I arrived to collect, I found the building was dark except for a single light in a ground floor window.

    I walked to the door and knocked.“Just a minute,” answered a weak, elderly voice.

    After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her eighties stood before me. By her side was a small suitcase.

    I took the suitcase to the car, and then returned to help the woman. She took my arm and we walked slowly towards the car.

    She kept thanking me for my kindness.“It’s nothing,” I told her, “I just try to treat my passengers in the way I would want my mother treated.”

     “Oh, you’re such a good man,” she said. When we got into the taxi, she gave me an address, and then asked, “Could you drive through downtown?”

    “It’s not the shortest way,” I answered quickly.

    “Oh, I’m in no hurry,” she said.“I’m on my way to a hospice(临终医院). I don’t have any family left. The doctor says I don’t have very long time.”

    I quietly reached over and shut off the meter(计价器).

    For the next two hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the building where she had once worked, the neighborhood where she had lived, and the furniture shop that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.

    Sometimes she’d ask me to slow down in front of a particular building and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.

    At dawn, she suddenly said, “I’m tired. Let’s go now.”We drove in silence to the address she had given me. “How much do I owe you?”she asked.“Nothing,” I said. “You have to make a living,” she answered.“Oh, there are other passengers, ”I answered.Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug. She held onto me tightly. Our hug ended with her remark, “You gave an old woman a little moment of joy.”

    33. The old woman chose to ride through the city in order to ______.

      A. show she was familiar with the city

      B. see some places for the last time

      C. let the driver earn more money

      D. reach the destination on time

    34. Which of the following statements is Not true?

      A. The old lady didn’t have very long time.

      B. The old lady was on her way to her daughter’s home.

      C. The taxi driver gave the old woman a little moment of joy.

      D. The taxi driver didn’t charge the old lady any money.

    35. What can we learn from the story?

      A. Giving is always a pleasure.

      B. People should respect each other.

      C. An act of kindness can bring people great joy.

      D. People should learn to appreciate others’ concern.

    There was once an old wise man living on the top of a mountain. Whenever the villagers had a problem, they would climb up the mountain and ask the old man for advice.

    One day a young man arrived. “Wise man,” he asked, “What makes a man truly great?”

    The old man said, “Do you sincerely want to know?”

    “Yes, yes!” the young man replied.

    “Well,” the wise old man said to him, “Let me tell you in the form of a story.”

    There was once a Greek man who suffered from a deadly disease. Knowing that he would die soon, he was the first to join the army when his country was in a battle with the enemy.

His general (将军) was so impressed with his bravery which contributed much to the victory.

    The general decided to promote him and award him with medals of bravery and honor. On the day of presentation (授予仪式), he was looking very down and sad. Curiously, the general asked him why he was so sad on a day he should be so proud. The soldier told him of his deadly disease. “How could I let such a brave soldier die?” the general thought.

    Grandparents Answer a Call

    As a third generation native of Brownsville, Texas, Mildred Garza never pleased move away. Even when her daughter and son asked her to move to San Antonio to help their children, she politely refused. Only after a year of friendly discussion did Ms. Gaf finally say yes. That was four years ago. Today all three generations regard the move to a success, giving them a closer relationship than they would have had in separate cities.

    No statistics show the number of grandparents like Garza who are moving closer to the children and grandchildren. Yet there is evidence suggesting that the trend is growing. Even President Obama’s mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, has agreed to leave Chicago and into the White House to help care for her granddaughters. According to a study grandparents com. 83 percent of the people said Mrs. Robinson ‘s decision will influence the grandparents in the American family. Two-thirds believe more families will follow the example of Obama’s family.

    “In the 1960s we were all a little wild and couldn’t get away from home far enough fast enough to prove we could do it on our own,” says Christine Crosby, publisher of Grate magazine for grandparents. We now realize how important family is and how important to be near them, especially when you’re raining children.”

    Moving is not for everyone. Almost every grandparent wants to be with his or her grandchildren and is willing to make sacrifices, but sometimes it is wiser to say no and visit frequently instead. Having your grandchildren far away is hard, especially knowing your adult child is struggling, but giving up the life you know may be harder.

    Jolly Joe always arrived at my neighborhood at exactly half past noon. The clang (叮当声) of the bell on his red and black truck was then the sweetest sound in the world. Brightly colored stickers advertising his amazing kinds of treats could be found on all sides of his truck. The whole neighborhood would magically come to life.

    Holding a nickel (五分镍币), I’d run to the back of the vehicle, where children were already gathering. Jolly Joe would jump out of his truck, the sun shining on his hair. He was an older man, short and round, with a pleasant face and a welcoming smile.

    I don’t know how, but he knew us all by name, as well as which treats we preferred. My favorite was the Buried Treasure. By eating all the ice cream, you’d discover the treasure inside: a lion, a dog or even a funny clown — printed onto a plastic stick.

    When it was finally my turn, he’d put his arm deep inside one of the boxes, and pause (停顿) for a moment, a puzzled look crossing his face. Then, suddenly, he’d pull it out: the Buried Treasure! I couldn’t wait to enjoy the cool, sweet ice cream.

    As quickly as he arrived, it was time for Jolly Joe to go, leaving behind laughing, excited children with sticky hands and faces. Soon the sound of his clanging bell would slowly disappear in the distance.

    I always hated to see Jolly Joe go, because I knew the rest of the day would be as hot and boring as before. But I took some comfort in knowing that the next day he’d come round the corner at half past noon and once again spread his magic.

    32. Jolly Joe was liked mostly by _____.

    A. children                         B. passengers         C. advertisers                    D. drivers

    33. Why did the author like the Buried Treasure best?

    A. It gave great pleasure to his pet.            B. It was the cheapest of all the treats.

    C. It contained something very interesting.      D. It was the most delicious of all the treats.

    34. Which of the following can best describe Jolly Joe?

    A. Dishonest and tricky.                    B. Wealthy and kind.

    C. Brave and hard-working.                  D. Happy and humorous.

    35. What would be the best title for the text?

    A. Lost treasure found at last.                B. A clanging bell in the distance.

    C. Ice cream man spreads frozen magic.        D. My friendship with an ice cream man.

           When I was six, Dad brought home a dog one day, who was called "Brownie". My brothers and I all loved Brownie and did different things with her. One of us would walk her, another would feed her, then there were baths, playing catch and many other games. Brownie, in return, loved each and every one of us. One thing that most touched my heart was that she would go to whoever was sick and just be with them. We always felt better when she was around.

        One day, as I was getting her food, she chewed up (咬破) one of my Dad's shoes, which had to be thrown away in the end. I knew Dad would be mad and I had to let her know what she did was wrong. When I looked at her and said, “Bad girl,” she looked down at the ground and then went and hid. I saw a tear in her eyes.

        Brownie turned out to be more than just our family pet. She went everywhere with us. People would stop and ask if they could pet her. Of course she'd let anyone pet her. She was just the most lovable dog. There were many times when we'd be out walking and a small child would come over and pull on her hair. She never barked () or tried to get away. Funny thing is that she would smile. This frightened people because they thought she was showing her teeth. Far from the truth, she loved everyone.

        Now many years have passed since Brownie died of old age. I still miss the days when she was with us. 

    28. What would Brownie do when someone was ill in the family?

       A. Look at them sadly.             B. Stay with them.

       C. Play games with them.           D. Touch them gently. 

    29. We can infer from Paragraph 2 that Brownie ________.

       C. loved playing hide-and-seek          D. disliked the author's dad 

    30. Some people got frightened by Brownie when she ________. 

       A. smiled      B. barked      C. rushed to them      D. tried to be funny 

    31. Which of the following best describes Brownie?

       A. Shy.      B. Polite.         C. Rude.          D. Caring.

    Many parents have learned the hard way that what sounds like open communication is often the very thing that closes a youngster’s ears and mouth. One common mistake is the Lecture, the long monologue that often starts with “When I was your age….” Eighteen-year-old Kelly calls lectures “long, one-side discussions in which I don’t say much.”

    Kids reflexively(条件反射地)shut down in the face of a lecture. Their eyes glaze over(呆滞), and they don’t register any incoming information. Listen to 13-year-old Sarah describe her least favorite times with her mom and dad. “First, they scream. Then comes the ‘We’re so disappointed’ speech. Then the ‘I never did that to my parents’ lecture begins. After that, even if they realize how ridiculous they sound, they never take it back.”

    Lines like “When you have children of your own, you’ll understand have been seriously said by parents since time immemorial. But many of our expert parents, like Bobby, a registered nurse and mother of three, feel that by falling back on clichés(陈词滥调)to justify our actions, we weaken our position.

    Since kids are creatures of here and now, the far-off future has no relevance to them. Therefore, good communicators like Bobby suggest, “Give specific

    reasons for your actions in present language: ‘I’m not letting you go to the party because I don’t think there will be enough adult supervisions(监护).’

    Betty, who lives in Missouri, uses an indirect approach. “I find that warnings are accepted more readily if I discuss a news article on a subject I am concerned about. My husband and I talk about it while our children absorb the information.

    Then they never think I’m preaching(布道).”

    This really helped when Betty’s kids began driving. Instead of constantly repeating Don’t drink; don’t speed,” she would talk about articles in the paper and express sympathy for the victims of a car crash. Betty made no special effort to draw her kids into the conversation. She depended on a teenager’s strong desire to put in his opinions---especially if he thinks he isn’t being asked for them.

    46.    The purpose of the passage is to                     .

    A.   compare two ways of parents communicating with their kids

    B.  give parents advice on how to communicate with their kids

    C.   explain why kids won’t listen to their parents.

    D.  introduce kids’ reaction to the communication between them and their parents

    47.    Which of the following statements is NOT right?

    A.   Kids won’t listen to their parents because they think what their parents say is

    boring.

    B.  Many kids think they have no right to express their own opinions.

    C.   Some kids think their parents should apologize when they are wrong.

    D.  Kids don’t like any discussion at all.

    48.    What does the underlined wordmonologue” in the first paragraph mean?

    A. a long speech by one person                             B. a speech by two persons

    C. conversation                                                   D. discussion

    49.    Which of the following topic may appeal to kids?

    A.   Parents’ own experience

    B.   Kids possible life in the future

    C.   Something related to kids’ present life

    D.  What parents have done to their own parents.

    50.    In order to make kids follow their advice, parents should                            _.

    A.   tell their kids to listen carefully

    B.  set out their warnings directly

    C.   list out as many examples as possible

    D.  arouse kids’ desire to express themselves.

    It was the summer of 1965. DeLuca, then 17, visited Peter Buck, a family friend.

    Buck asked DeLuca about his plans for the future. “I’m going to college, but I need a way to pay for it,” DeLuca recalls saying. “Buck said, ‘You should open a sandwich shop.’

    That afternoon, they agreed to be partners. And they set a goal: to open 32 stores in ten years. After doing some research, buck wrote a check for $1000.

    DeLuca rented a storefront (店面) in Connecticut, and when they couldn’t cover their start-up costs, Buck kicked in another $1000.

    But business didn’t go smoothly as they expected. DeLuca says, “After six

    months, we were doing poorly, but we didn’t know how badly, because we didn’t have any financial controls.” All he and Buck knew was that their sales were lower than their costs.

    DeLuca was managing the store and going to the University of Bridgeport at

    the same time. Buck was working at his day job as a nuclear physicist in New York. They’d meet Monday evenings and brainstorm ideas for keeping the business running. “We convinced ourselves to open a second store. We figured we could tell the public, ‘We are so successful, we are opening a second store.’” And they did—in the spring of 1966. Still, it was a lot of learning by trial and error.

    But the partners’ learn-as-you-go approach turned out to be their greatest

    strength. Every Friday, DeLuca would drive around and hand-deliver the checks to pay their suppliers. “It probably took me two and a half hours and it wasn’t necessary, but as a result, the suppliers got to know me very well, and the personal relationships established really helped out,” DeLuca says.

    And having a goal was also important. “There are so many problems that can

    get you down. You just have to keep working toward your goal,” DeLuca adds.

    DeLuca ended up founding Subway Sandwich, the multimillion-dollar restaurant chain.

    41.    DeLuca opened the first sandwich shop in order to                         .

    A. support his family                                           B. pay for his college education

    C. help his partner expand business                        D. do some research

    42.    Which of the following is true of Buck?

    A.   He put money into the sandwich business.

    B.  He was a professor of business administration.

    C.   He was studying at the University of Bridgeport.

    D.  He rented a storefront for DeLuca.

    43.    What can we learn about their first shop?

    A.   It stood at an unfavorable place.

    B.  It lowered the prices to promote sales.

    C.   It made no profits due to poor management.

    D.  It lacked control over the quality of sandwiches.

    44.    They decided to open a second store because they                          .

    A.   had enough money to do it.

    B.  had succeeded in their business.

    C.   wished to meet the increasing demand of customers.

    D.  wanted to make believe that they were successful.

    45.    What contributes most to their success according to the author?

    A. Learning by trial and error.                               B. Making friends with suppliers.

    C. Finding a good partner.                                    D. Opening chain stores.

    A woman was walking her dog along a beach in New Zealand in late June when she saw something that looked like a white ball in the sand. It turned out to be a young Emperor penguin that was lost. At his age, he should have been close to the Antarctic, swimming for fish and playing on the ice floes(冰川) . But this penguin started swimming north and just kept going.

    The penguin attracted a lot of attention in New Zealand. It has been 40 years since an Emperor penguin was last seen there. Researchers at the Department of Conservation were called in. They decided to watch the penguin closely, but not to disturb it in any way. Many New Zealanders came to Peka Beach to look at the elegant penguin. They were careful to keep their dogs away from it so it wouldn’t be frightened.

    The public nicknamed the animal Happy Feet. Researchers started to notice that Happy Feet didn’t seem well. It turns out that he had been eating the sand from the beach, likely thinking it was snow.

    The public raised more than 11,000 pounds for an operation to get the sand out of his stomach. The operation was a success, and Happy Feet was taken to a zoo in Wellington, NZ. A group of experts met to decide how to help Happy Feet return to the wild.

    Last Sunday, they put him on a boat called the Tangaroa, in a specially built ice-filled box and took him out into the Southern Ocean, southeast of New Zealand. There, they released him into the ocean, which is his natural habitat. He took one last look at his human helpers and then dived into the ocean.

    “Emperor penguins spend their first five years at sea,” said Peter Simpson of New Zealand’s Department of Conservation. “ What happens now is up to the penguin.”

    Happy Feet was fitted with a satellite transmitter(发射机)so they can monitor his progress using the Internet. So far, the trackers shows that he swam northeast for a little while before getting his bearings and heading south.

    28. Where is the young penguin supposed to appear?

    AOn the sunny beach               B. Inside the hole in the ice.

      CNear the Antarctic               DIn the epths of the ocean.

    29. How was the penguin treated after he was found in New Zealand?

    A. He was protected well and taken good care of .

    B. He was sent to the local zoo and attracted much attention.

    C. He was taken to the lab by researchers for study.  

      D. He was disturbed by many curious New Zealanders.

    30. The public collected some money to______.

    Ado some research on the penguin          Bbuild a home for the penguin

    Cget the sand out of the penguin’s belly     Dreturn the penguin to his habitat

    31. What happened to the penguin in the end according to the passage?

      AHe was put in a specially built ice-filled box on a boat .

     BHe was bought to the Southern Ocean and released.

     CHe reached his home--The Antarctic.

    DHe swam northeast from the the Southern Ocean. .

      “Sorry I had to keep you waiting, but I was pretty sure I made the right decision to have you as part of our workforce before you even stepped into the office. I just know you’d be a trustworthy worker. Congratulations!” Jimmy sat down and they shared a cup of well-deserved coffee as he landed himself a new job.

       I still remember my first day at school in London and I was half-excited and half-frightened. On my way to school I wondered what sort of questions the other boys would ask me and practiced all the answers: “I am nine years old. I was born here but I haven’t lived here since I was two. I was living in Farley. It’s about thirty miles away. I came back to London two months ago.” I also wondered if it was the custom for boys to fight strangers like me, but I was tall for my age. I hoped they would decide not to risk it.

    No one took any notice of me before school. I stood in the center of the playground, expecting someone to say “hello”, but no one spoke to me. When a teacher called my name and told me where my classroom was, one or two boys looked at me but that was all.

    My teacher was called Mr. Jones. There were 42 boys in the class, so I didn’t stand out there, either, until the first lesson of the afternoon. Mr. Jones was very fond of Charles Dickens and he had decided to read aloud to us from David Copperfield, but first he asked several boys if they knew Dickens’ birthplace, but no one guessed right. A boy called Brian, the biggest in the class, said: “Timbuktu”, and Mr. Jones went red in the face. Then he asked me. I said: “Portsmouth”, and everyone stared at me because Mr. Jones said I was right. This didn’t make me very popular, of course.

    “He thinks he’s clever,” I heard Brian say.

    After that, we went out to the playground to play football. I was in Brian’s team, and he obviously had Dickens in mind because he told me to go in goal. No one ever wanted to be the goalkeeper.

    “He’s big enough and useless enough.” Brian said when someone asked him why he had chosen me.

    I suppose Mr. Jones, who served as the judge, remembered Dickens, too, because when the game was nearly over, Brian pushed one of the players on the other team, and he gave them a penalty (惩罚). As the boy kicked the ball to my right, I threw myself down instinctively (本能地) and saved it. All my team crowded round me. My bare knees were injured and bleeding. Brian took out a handkerchief and offered it to me.

    “Do you want to join my gang (帮派)?” he said.

    At the end of the day, I was no longer a stranger.
