    When I was growing up, I had an old neighbor named Doctor Gibbs. He didn't look like any doctor I'd ever known. He never yelled at us for playing in his yard, but was always very kind.

    When Doctor Gibbs wasn't saving lives, he was planting trees. He had some interesting theories about planting trees. He believed in the principle: "No pain, no gain". He hardly watered his new trees, which flew in the face of conventional wisdom. Once I asked why and he told me that watering plants spoiled them because it made them grow weaker. He said you had to make things tough for the trees so that only the strongest could survive. He talked about how watering trees made them develop shallow roots and how, if they were not watered, trees would grow deep roots in search of water. So, instead of watering his trees every morning, he'd beat them with a rolled-up newspaper. I asked him why he did that, and he said it was to get the tree's attention.

    Doctor Gibbs died a couple of years after I left home. Every now and then, I walked by his house and looked at the trees that I'd watched him plant some twenty five years ago. They were all tall and strong.

    I planted a couple of trees myself a few years ago. Two years of attending these trees meant they grew up weak. Whenever a cold wind blew, their branches trembled. Adversity(逆境) seemed to benefit Doctor Gibb's trees in ways comfort and ease never could.

    Every night before I go to bed, I check on my two sons. I often pray that their lives will be easy. But lately I've been thinking that it's time to change my prayer. I know my children are going to meet with hardship. There's always a cold wind blowing somewhere. What we need to do is to pray for deep roots, so when the rains fall and the winds blow, we won't be torn apart.

    21. With the trees planted, Doctor Gibbs often __________.

    A. kept watering them every morning        B. beat them to make them grow deep roots

    C. talked to them to get their attention        D. paid little attention to them

    22. Which prayer does the author wish for his sons?

    A. Have an easy life, without too much to worry about.

    B. Be able to stand the rain and wind in their lives.

    C. Have good luck, encountering less hardship in their life.

    D. Meet people like Dr Gibbs in the future.

    23. Which of the following can be the best title of the passage?

    A. Prayers for my sons.   B. Doctor Gibbs and his trees.   C. Growing roots.  D. Watering trees.

    When my daughter Sally was five, I bought Grimm’s Fairy Tales and read Snow White to her one night. At the end of the original Grimm tale, Snow White’s stepmother is made to put on red-hot iron shoes and dance until she falls down dead.

    This came as something of a shock. I always thought fairytales had happy endings. And I didn’t want my five-year-old daughter going to sleep thinking: “Thank goodness they tortured (折磨) that old woman to death.” That’s when I decided to write fairy tales.

    In the years that followed, I wrote tales non-stop and read them to Sally at bedtime. The Corn Dolly was based on a child who was always complaining; The Silly King was just a silly story Sally loved; I wrote The Witch and the Rainbow Cat for Sally because of her enormous  appetite for stories about witches while Dr Bonocolus’s Devil is a new version of the Faust legend

    Nifobobinus, however, was different. I wrote this book when Sally was older and took up all things girls have to do — who’s friends with who, who stuck a sticker on the back of whose boyfriend, or whatever thing she felt funny.

    Nicobobinus, the boy who could do anything, came out of my desire for a more innocent world. He lived a 1ong time ago, in a city called Venice. Only his best friend, Rosie, knew he could, and nobody took any notice of anything Rosie said, because she was always having wild ideas anyway.

    Nicobobinus was so different that it turned out to be an instant hit. The Times called me “an author setting out to rival the classic fairytales”. I asked Sally what she thought of Nicobobinus. She said it was her favourite.

    32. What led the writer to start writing fairy tales for her daughter?

    A. The frightening ends of past fairy tales.

    B. His daughter’s strong interest in fairy tales.

    C. His desire to let his daughter know more stories.

    D. His attempt to fill his daughter’s bedtime with something.

    33. We can infer from the third paragraph that the writer _____.

    A. was a very productive fairy tale writer

    B. based all his stories on some old legends

    C. never described witches in his fairy tales

    D. created his stories out of his own interest

    34. When creating Nicobobinus, the first thing the writer considered was _____.

    A. the changes of his daughter’s interests

    B. what story the publisher wanted to get

    C. ways to keep his daughter Sally innocent

    D. the difference of the story from other stories

    35. The underlined word “rival” in the last paragraph can be replaced by _____.

    A. follow                    B. explore           C. challenge              D. recommend

    A GRANDMOTHER, Michelle Riotton, 78, survived after falling down a mountain valley. She set off for a walk alone dressed only in a light jacket and trousers. “I slipped into a valley!” said Mrs Riotton, who said the fall happened in a deep forest close to her home village.

        It was warm and sunny when the accident happened, but temperatures dropped to very low when night fell, and it rained. “I wasn’t afraid,” said Mrs Riotton. “But I was worried that my children and grandchildren would become too worried about me.” Mrs Riotton said she covered herself in leaves when feeling cold, taking very small bites of two biscuits which she had in her pocket and drinking rainwater which fell down her face.

        She spent six nights before she was found on Saturday. She was lying at the bottom of the valley, which was less than a mile from her home. The search had once been stopped, but Patrice Fossard, one of her neighbors, insisted that the search continue. “There was no way we could give her up, even if deep inside we felt we had little hope of finding her alive,” said Mrs Fossard. “It was a miracle that Michelle was finally found.”

        Mrs Riotton said she would be taking life easier from now on. “Enough is enough!” she said, “No more forests---don’t want to visit one again.”

        A mountain policeman said walking alone in the mountain was not recommended and that Mrs Riotton should have carried a mobile phone with her. “The mountains are particularly dangerous at this time of year as sunny afternoons can quickly change into cold, wet and stormy evenings.” He said. “Anybody walking into the mountains should carry safety equipment and be prepared for any kind of emergency.”

    5. When Michelle Riotton was in the valley, she_______.

      A. was hurt too badly to move             B. missed her home very much

      C. didn’t feel afraid                      D. felt very hungry

    6. Michelle Riotton covered herself with leaves to_____.

      A. keep warm during her suffering          B. prevent the harmful animals

      C. make herself noticed by others           D. avoid getting wet in the rain

    7. Michelle Riotton got lost on__________.

      A. Sunday       B. Saturday       C. Wednesday        D. Monday

    8. According to the mountain policeman, ___________.

      A. the mountain in the morning are very dangerous

      B one had better not walk in the mountains alone

      C. people should carry safety equipment every day

      D. people wouldn’t be safe without a mobile phone

        I live in a city, and I like quiet life. I hate nosy (爱管闲事的) neighbors but it’s very unlucky that I had one for myself. They moved in a couple of months ago and although I never felt that they were a strange family, I’ve always hated the way they get “too close” to me, my house, my garden, and even my garbage cans.
        One day, my neighbors were mowing their lawn (
    草坪). My garbage cans were near their lawn. For some strange reason, I found the wife looking through my garbage cans. I felt angry but since they were from a different culture, I thought that maybe it was “normal” from their ideas.
        That afternoon, the couple knocked on my front door. When I opened, they gave me a plastic bag. Inside were my old daily bills, credit cards and bank statements, and an old birthday card that my old uncle sent. They said that they were returning them to me because these documents contained very private information that may be used by others.
        I’ve heard of it before. I asked them how those documents can be used by others and they started telling me their very own experience, which forced them to leave their home and move next door to us. The wife told me that she never destroyed the bills. They also had a “nosy neighbour” who looked through their garbage cans which they actually thought was pretty strange. Little did they know that this “nosy neighbor” was collecting their personal information from their rubbish. Then all their money was taken out from the bank by their neighbor.
        It was a very painful experience for all of them and they wanted to leave it all behind so they left. I was very thankful. They were not nosy neighbors. They simply didn’t want us to experience the same thing that they did.
    1. What made the author angry?
    A. His neighbors came to knock at his door at night. 
    B. His neighbors were mowing their lawn one morning.
    C. His neighbors got too close to his own home.
    D. His neighbor’s wife was looking through his rubbish.
    2. Why did the couple come to the author’s home?
    A. To return the documents to the author.
    B. To get to know each other better.
    C. To introduce themselves to the author.
    D. To borrow some money from the author.
    3. The neighbors moved to live next door to the author because       .
        A. they no longer had money to live in their former home
        B. their personal documents were used by their former neighbor
        C. they didn’t want to live in such a noisy home as before
        D. they thought the author was much better than their former neighbor
    4.Which of the following can we infer from the last paragraph?
    A. The author was kind and helpful to the neighbors.
    B. The author changed his idea about his neighbors.
    C. The neighbors didn’t have enough money.
    D. The neighbors had to move from place to place.

     “Annabel, I think there is a bear in our house,” I shouted up the stair. She didn’t hear me properly. “There is a what?” she shouted back. “You’ve found a chair in the house?” I cleared my throat and said again, as calmly as possible, “I think there is a bear in the house.” If there is a world speed record for repacking a backpack and leaving a building, Annabel must be a competitor, for we were outside the building within seconds.

    Annabel and I had already spent three days walking 80 kilometers over the mountains from the Pacific. We were in Canada’s Yukon Territory, heading towards Car cross, on the shore of Lake Bennett. Here our boat was waiting where we had left it the week before. Our plan then was to boat down the 3,000 kilometers of Yukon River to the Bering Sea.

    On this day, we were walking the last 48 kilometers towards Car cross, following a disused railway line. You had to keep an eye out for black bears, whose presence was obvious from the huge piles of dung(粪便)that littered the tracks.

    As the day drew on, we started to look for somewhere to sleep. We finally found an old railway building, which looked as if it might keep us safe from bears. Though the windows and doors had large scratch and chew marks, they were covered with boards and looked safe. Annabel went upstairs and started to unpack and settle in while I looked around downstairs.

    I was moving around in what was once clearly a kitchen, when, from out of a darkened doorway that I took to the storeroom, came a soft but unusual deep moan(呻吟). My curiosity raised, I started to walk towards the slightly opne door. I was halfway across the room when a low rough sound came out of the darkness and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. My natural ability was to ruin. I backed out of the room, my eyes staring at the dark doorway. We thought it might be a better idea to spend the night elsewhere.

    We got up early in our small tent in the morning. The night’s sleep had been all right except when a little troubled by dreams of bears. But our mood rose with the sun. We were walking along, relaxing with each step and looking forward to a big lunch at Car cross.

    Crossing a small wooden bridge, we left the rail tracks to have a drink. As we returned, Annabel cried out “Stop!” Looking up, I saw a familiar black shape behind us: another black bear was following us, moving up slowly from behind, and then disappearing rapidly into the trees when we turned to face it. How long it had been following us, we could not say.

    25. What can you know from the first paragraph?

    A. Annabel set a world speed record.

    B. The author was calmer than Annabel.

    C. Annabel’s hearing was so poor that she couldn’t hear any sounds.

    D. The two girls ran out of the house at high speed for fear of the bear.

    26. What is the author and Annabel’s final destination?

    A. The Pacific

    B. Yukon Territory

    C. Car cross

    D. The Bering sea

    27. Which is TURE about the old railway building according to the passage?

    A. Trains pass here along the railway track.

    B. Bears might have come and gone around here.

    C. It was really a safe place to play and sleep in.

    D. A rough sound could be heard from the kitchen.

    Every man wants his son to be somewhat of a clone,not in features but in footsteps.As he grows you also age, and your ambitions become more unachievable.You begin to realize that your boy,in your footsteps,could probably accomplish what you hoped for.But footsteps can be muddied and they can go off in different directions.

    My son Jody has hated school since day one in kindergarten.Science projects waited until the last moment.Book reports weren't written until the final threat.

    I've been a newspaperman all my adult life.My daughter is a university graduate working toward her master's degree in English.But Jody? When he entered the tenth grade he became a “vo-tech” student(技校学生).They're called “motorheads” by the rest of the student body.

    When a secretary in my office first called him “motorhead”,I was shocked.“Hey,he's a good kid,” I wanted to say.“And smart,really.”

        I learned later that motorheads are,indeed,different.They usually have dirty hands and wear dirty work clothes. And they don't often make school honor rolls(光荣榜).

    But being the parent of a motorhead is itself an experience in education.We who labor in clean shirts in offices don't have the abilities that motorheads have.I began to learn this when I had my car crashed.The cost to repair it was estimated at $800.“Hey,I can fix it,” said Jody.I doubted it ,but let him go ahead,for I had nothing to lose.

    My son ,with other motorheads,fixed the car.They got parts(零件)from a junkyard,non-toasting toaster have been fixed.Neighbours and co-workers trust their car repair to him.

    Since that first repair job,a broken air-conditioner,a non-functioning washer and a non-toasting toaster have been fixed.Neighbors and co-workers trust their car repairs to him.

    These kids are happiest when doing repairs.They joke and laugh and are living in their own relaxed world.And their minds are bright despite their dirty hands and clothes.

    I have learned a lot from my motorhead: publishers need printers,engineers need mechanics,and architects need builders.Most important,I have learned that fathers don't need clones in footsteps or anywhere else.

    My son may never make the school honor roll.But he made mine.

    24.What used to be the author's hope for his son?

    A.To avoid becoming his clone.                            B.To resemble him in appearance.

    C.To develop in a different direction.                   D.To reach the author's unachieved goals.

    25.What can we learn about the author's children?

    A.His daughter does better in school.                  B.His daughter has got a master's degree.

    C.His son tried hard to finish homework.              D.His son couldn't write his book reports.

    26.The author let his son repair the car because he believed that_______.

    A.His son had the ability to fix it.                           B.it would save him much time.

    C.it wouldn't cause him any more loss                D.other motorheads would come to help.

    27.In the author's eyes,motorheads are _______.

    A.tidy and hardworking             B.cheerful and smart         C.lazy but bright          D.relaxed but rude

    28.What did the author realize in the end?

    A.It is unwise to expect your child to follow your path.         B.It is important for one to make the honor roll.

    C.Architects play a more important role than builders.              D.Motorheads have greater ability than office workers.

    Joanna Cole, born on August 11, 1944 in Newark, New Jersey, has been credited to be one of the most popular children’s authors of all time. She has written over 250 books and is famous for writing one of the most popular children’s book series. She knew as early as early as 5th grade that she was interested in writing and science. Cole has owed a large part of her passion to one of her elementary school teachers.

She does this by writing ideas instead of just facts. She also tries to ask questions in her books that require children to think and discover the answers as they read. This creates an engaging experience for children, so it is no wonder why younger readers are hooked on her books.

    Long, long ago there were a lot of donkeys. The donkeys worked hard every day. They had no time to play or to relax, but they never felt appreciated (得到赏识的)  for the work they did.

        One day two donkeys got bored. They wanted to live a comfortable life, so the donkeys went to see a wise old man. They told him their problem. The wise old man agreed they worked too hard, and he wanted to help the donkeys. “I have an idea,” he said.

        “What is your idea?” asked the donkeys.

        “I will paint you and no one will know you are donkeys,” said the man.

        The man went off to find some paint and he returned in just a matter of minutes. He had two pots of paints. One pot was filled with white paint, and the other black paint.

        The old man first painted them white, and then painted stripes(斑纹) over the white paint. When he finished, the donkeys did not look like donkeys at all. “You no longer look like donkeys,” the old man said. “Everyone will be fooled (欺骗). I will call you something else, zebras(斑马).”

        The zebras went to a field to eat grass. Now they did not have to work.

        Soon, other donkeys saw the zebras. They asked the zebras where they came from. When the zebras told the donkeys their secret, the donkeys all rushed to see the old man.

        “Please make us into zebras, too,” they pleaded.  So the wise old man painted more donkeys. As he did, more and more donkeys came.

        The old man could not paint fast enough. Soon the donkeys became impatient(不耐烦的). They began to kick about, and they knocked over the paint pots.

        There was no more paint. The painted donkeys ran off to become zebras. The unpainted donkeys, because of their impatience, had to return to work.

    My husband hasn't stopped laughing about a funny thing that happened to me. It's funny now but it wasn't at the time.

    Last Friday, after doing all the family shopping in town, I wanted a rest before catching the train, so I bought a newspaper and some chocolate and went into the station coffee shop that was a cheap self-service place with long tables to sit at. I put my heavy bag down on the floor, put the newspaper and chocolate on the table to keep a place, and went to get a cup of coffee.

    When I went back with the coffee, there was someone in the next seat. It was one of those wild-looking youngsters, with dark glasses and worn clothes, and hair colored bright red at the front. Not so unusual these days. What did surprise me was that he'd started to eat my chocolate!

    Naturally, I was annoyed. However, to avoid trouble and really I was rather uneasy about him I just looked down at the front page of the newspaper, tasted my coffee and took a bit of chocolate. The boy looked at me closely. Then he took a second piece of my chocolate. I could hardly believe it. Still I didn't dare to start an argument. When he took a third piece, I felt more angry than uneasy. I thought, "Well, I shall have the last piece." And I got it.

    The boy gave me a strange look, and then stood up. As he left he shouted out. "This woman's crazy!" Everyone stared. That was embarrassing enough, but it was worse when I finished my coffee and got ready to leave. My face went red as red as his hair when I realized I'd made a mistake. It wasn't my chocolate that he'd been taking. There was mine, unopened, just under my newspaper.

    28. The woman telling the story ________.

    A. wanted a newspaper and some chocolate to take home to her family

    B. bought some chocolate so that she could keep a place at the table

    C. had been very busy and needed some time to recover

    D. always went shopping with her family on Fridays

    29. When the woman saw the boy go on eating the chocolate, she felt ________.

    A. more and more disappointed at losing the chocolate

    B. too shy to look in the boy's direction

    C. more and more angry with the boy

    D. too tired to start an argument

    30. The woman's face turned red ________.

    A. because she realized that she had been quite wrong about the boy

    B. because she realized that the boy was poor and angry

    C. because she saw everyone staring at her

    D. because she hated being shouted at

    31. From the story we can see the woman ________.

    A. was careless and selfish       B. often made mistakes

    C. was being careless             D. was crazy

    Since Abbi Hickman was just a little girl, she has been surrounded by animals. Chickens, cats, a dog, rabbits, and sometimes goats are just some of the animals she cares for. At the age of 9, Abbi went to the Tracy Animal Shelter, in her hometown of Tracy, California, to adopt Sheldon, her favorite cat. There, she saw the poor conditions that the animals were kept in. Abbi knew that it was her duty to take action.

    Pins (识别号码) for Pets is Abbi’s solution. For the last three years, she has organized a bowling tournament to raise funds for the Tracy Animal Center. She has raised more than $30,000, resulting in a better home for the animals. “Now the shelter is nicer and cleaner and animals have more space. It is far better, a hundred percent better,” Abbi says.

    To commend Abbi for her outstanding efforts, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) named her the 2015 ASPCA Tommy P. Monahan Kid of the Year. This award is given to kids who make a substantial effort to help animals. Abbi responded to the news of her win with shock. “I was pretty excited. I'm really honored to receive it,” she says.

I want to spread my free services to more shelters. I really just hope people are kinder to animals and respect them more,” says Abbi, sharing her goals for her organization. By the age of 12, Abbi has already accomplished so much.

    The advice she has for kids like her, who want to accomplish their goals, is, “Nothing is impossible. You can do anything you put your mind to. Even if it is something small, it can make a huge difference.” Abbi’s work has improved the lives of animals, and she plans to keep coming up with new ways to help them.

     “Joe? Is that you?” The woman speaking to me at the baseball game looked a little familiar. “Marci?” I asked.

    “It IS you!” she cried out, smiling broadly. “Gosh, it’s good to see you again!”

    It was good to see Marci, too. Off and on during the past few decades, I’ve wondered about her. I almost tried to search for her a few years ago after talking to a friend who had indicated that the 1990s had been pretty rough for Marci. So meeting her at the baseball game was really out of expectation.

    We spent a few minutes talking about our lives the good old, bad old days. Then Marci grew quiet for a moment. “You know, Joe,” she said, “I’ve always wanted to tell you ... how ... how sorry for the way I treated you. You must have been hurt both physically and mentally.” I was a little embarrassed. I tuned and looked at her. “It’s OK,” I said, “No big deal!” “But I was such a jerk,” she continued. Yes, you were, I thought. “We were both pretty young,” I smiled. “I know, she said, “It’s just always bothered me, remembering how mean I was to you. And I’ve wanted to tell you that I’m sorry.”

    The expression on her face was warm and sincere. And there was something in her eyes it looked a lot like relief. “OK,” I said, “Apology accepted!” Overcome by the sweetness of the moment, I reached an arm around her and gave her a quick hug. Just then, the crowd erupted with a huge cheer, and Marci and I both returned our attention to the game. By the time I looked over to where she had been, she was gone. But the warm, wonderful feeling of our brief exchange was still there, and continues to the day whenever I think about it.

    It isn’t enough to just say “I’m sorry” and “you’re forgotten”. But when those words are truly felt and sincerely expressed, they can open the door to the miracles of the heart. Forgiveness can give peace to an injured soul even years after the fact, even at a baseball game.

    21. What kind of life did Marci live during the late 20th century according to the passage?

       A. Happy.            B. Busy.           C. Hard.        D. Simple.

    22. What does the underlined “jerk” in the third paragraph mean?

       A. A humorous person.  B. A cruel person.  C. A careless person.  D. An honest person.

    23. Why did Marci look in relief after talking with the author?

       A. Because her favourite team won the game,

       B. Because her learned Joe was living a good life.

       C. Because she made an apology to the author.

       D. Because she found she was not mean any longer.

    24. What might be the best title for the passage?

       A. Excitement of a Baseball Game.          B. Mental Burden of a Woman

       C. Relief of Finding a Friend.              D. Miracles of Forgiveness.

        Dr. Michael Prager, a leading Botox expert, said that a growing number of women are developing something called “computer face”. He also mentioned that professionals who worked long hours in front of a screen were ending up with saggy jowls(颚骨下垂),“turkey neck” and deep-set wrinkles(皱纹) on their forehead and around their eyes.

        The Botox expert said that, of all his clients, office workers were most likely to show premature (过早的)signs of aging. “ If you are one of the unfortunate people who frown(皱眉)while you are concentrating on the screen then, over time, you will inevitably(不可避免地) end up with frown lines.’’ Dr. Prager said. “What is perhaps more surprising is the number of women with saggy jowls because they are sitting in one position for so long. If you spend most of the time looking down then the neck muscles shorten and go saggy, eventually giving you a second neck.”

       Dr. Prager, who has a practice near Harley Street in London, said he encourages his clients(客户) to put a mirror next to their computer so they can see if they are frowning at the screen. “When people are stressed or thinking hard about something, then they will often put on a ‘grumpy(脾气暴躁的)face’ without even knowing what they are doing. When my clients put a mirror next to their desk, they are often shocked by the angry, frowning face which stares back at them.”

       He said, “The women I am seeing at the moment have only been using computers at work for the last decade or so. But women in their 20s have grown up with them and use them for every single task. I think the problem is going to become much, much worse. In another ten years, they could be looking quite awful.”

       Dr. Prager said there were several simple steps which could avoid “computer face” such as regular screen breaks and stretching the neck muscles. And, of course, there was always Botox. He said that , after a couple of sessions of Botox, the habit of “grumpy face” could be broken. 33.According to the passage, which of the following are signs of aging?

    A. Saggy jowls and short necks                 B. Turkey neck and frown lines

    C. Deep-set wrinkles and angry faces            D. Second neck and stressed muscles

    34. Why does Dr. Prager suggest a mirror for his clients?

    A. To be aware of their “computer face”          B. To see if they have got a second neck

    C. To make sure their make-up is perfect         D. To find more signs of premature aging

    35. From the last 2 paragraphs, we can know that_____

    A. “computer face” is avoidable           B. we should give up using computers

    C. we should break the habit of “grumpy face”    

    D. the younger generation is worse at computers
