    Alexis, 17, sat quietly in the passenger seat of her dad's car. She let her eyes lazily scan the landscape for wildlife. Then a deer came into view about 200 yards in front of them. “Dad, there's a deer there!” Alexis said. It was a male deer with sharp antlers () on each side of its head.

    As the car moved closer, Alexis saw that the deer's head was bent toward the ground. Then she heard a scream and saw an arm fly up near the deer's head. Alexis realized the deer was attacking a woman. Sue, a 44-year-old mother, had been out for her morning run. The deer followed her and edged closer. “I knew I was in trouble,” Sue says. She went to pick up a stick for self-defense, and the deer charged. It lifted her with its antlers and threw her into the air. Sue could feel blood flew down her leg. Within seconds, the deer had pushed her off the road.

    When Alexis and her father pulled up, the deer was throwing Sue like a doll. Alexis looked into the woman's terrified eyes, and before her father had even stopped the car, the teenager jumped quickly out of the car and ran toward the deer. "I was kicking it to get its attention," she says. Then her father, who had followed his daughter, pushed the deer away from the women.

    Alexis helped Sue into the car, and then applied a piece of cloth to Sue's injured leg. “We’re going to get you to a hospital,” Alexis said. Then she heard her father shout loudly. He had been knocked to the ground. Alexis took hold of a hammer from the car and ran to where her father lay on his back. She beat the deer’s head and neck, but the blows didn’t scare it away. “I was losing faith,” she says. “A couple more strikes, Alexis,” said her father. “You can do it.”

    Turning the hammer around, Alexis closed her eyes and beat the deer's neck with all her strength. When she opened her eyes, the deer was running away. Alexis got in the driver's seat and sped toward the nearest hospital.

    After Sue was treated, she tearfully thanked her rescuers. “You expect a teenage girl to get on the phone and call for help,” she says, “not to beat up a deer.”

    21. What was Sue doing when she was attacked by the deer?

    A. She was driving home.  B. She was resting on the road.

    C. She was taking exercise. D. She was feeding wild animals.

    22. What did Alexis do to save Sue?

    A. She pushed the deer away.    B. She hit the deer with her feet

    C. She drove the car to hit the deer.  D. She beat the deer with a hammer.

    23. Which of the following words can best describe Alexis?

    A. Strong.  B. Cruel.  C. Energetic.  D. Brave.

    24. What is the best title for the passage?

    A. A Woman Was Seriously Injured

    B. A Dangerous Deer Attacked a Woman

    C. A Girl Rescued Her Father Successfully

    D. A Teenager Saved Others from a Deer Attack

    Once Dr. Mellinkoff invited me to join him at the hospital to discuss interesting cases with his students. The case at hand was a Guatemalan man, aged 34, who had a fever and many other medical problems. His condition was not improving, and there was not much hope he would live.

    Dr. Mellinkoff asked to see the patient. He introduced himself in Spanish and, in a very gentle voice, asked how he felt. The patient smiled and said everything was all right. Then the doctor asked if he was able to eat. The patient said that he had no desire to eat.

    “ Are you getting food you like? ”

    The patient said nothing.

    “ Do you get the kind of food you have at home? ”

    The answer was no.

    The doctor put his hand on the man’s shoulder and his voice was very soft.

    “ If , you had food that you liked , would you eat it? ”

    “ Yes , yes. ” the patient said.

    The change in the patient’s appearance couldn’t have been more obvious. Nothing was said , but it was easy to tell that a message had been sent and had also been received.

    Later, the doctor asked why the Guatemalan man wasn’t getting food he could eat. One of the students said, “ We all know how difficult it is to get the kitchen to make special meals. ”

    “ Suppose, ” the doctor replied, “ you felt a certain medicine was absolutely necessary but that our hospital didn’t carry it, would you accept defeat or would you insist the hospital meet your request? ”

    “ I would probably insist, ” the student said.

    “ Very well, ” the doctor said. “ You might want to try the same method in the kitchen. It won’t be easy, but I can help you. Meanwhile, let’s get some food inside this man as fast as possible, and stay with it. Or he’ll be killed by hunger. By the way, there must be someone among you who can speak Spanish. If we want to make real progress, we need to be able to talk with him. ”

    Three weeks later, Dr. Mellinkoff told me that the Guatemalan man had left the hospital under his own power. It takes more than medicine to help sick people; you also have to talk to them and make them comfortable.

    21. The patient had no desire to eat because __________.

    A. he was not hungry                            B. he was seriously ill

    C. he was given special meals                  D. he was not satisfied with the food

    22. According to the passage , we can conclude that __________.

    A. the patient was from another country .

    B. the patient’s illness was caused by hunger

    C. Dr. Mellinkoff performed an operation on the patient

    D. the hospital failed to provide the right medicine for the patient

    23. Which of the following words can be used to describe Dr. Mellinkoff ?

    A. Cold.          B. Considerate.           C. Curious .         D. Confident.

    24. What do you think Dr. Mellinkoff wanted to tell his students in this case?

    A. Doctors should know their patients’ real problems.

    B. Doctors should be able to speak foreign languages.

    C. Doctors should try to improve their medical skills.

    D. Doctors should give more medicine to patients.

    My mother is the only living person who has never communicated via email or text. She has never turned on a computer, registered an email account, used data storage media or searched the Internet. Since 1955, she has settled in Silicon Valley, married to an extremely technical specialist in applied physics and engineering, designing photometric systems for NASA. Only when Dad suffered from cancer could we convince her she needed a cell phone. Mom’s being separated from the information age is voluntary and deliberate.

         Mom is still that farm girl, and she takes the most pride in it. She sees her neighbor and her community “real”. She shows no interest in the digital and virtual life. My mother saw Depression, World War II and the beginning of the Cold War before reaching voting age. She enjoyed country music on “The Sons of the Pioneers”, a Canadian broadcast. The battery was so precious a resource that radio was limited to the barn because Grandma thought it helped cows produce milk. In the age when Churchill moved millions for the first time with radio broadcasts, she only experienced live media monthly, if at all.

        In her early twenties, Mom completed nurses’ training and worked in that field before marriage, family and church became her life’s concerns. She never really warmed up to television, though I think she appreciated a few of the series we watched, comedies like All in the Family. Computers, the Internet and mobile apps are simply not part of her experience.

        Mom disagrees with the opinion that technology simplifies life. In her life, she sees online records, email and paperless systems as mysteries in which no written reference can assist her.

        However, I can partly understand: I like such kind of experience and relationship one has with physical books. I am a child of television who only recently switched to online viewing. I’ve written down my awkward, love-hate relationship with my devices. Mom’s technophobia surely played a role here, but it works for her. She’s happiest as she is.

    21. The author’s mother began to use mobile phone when           .

    A. she found it hard to contact with her husband 

    B. she settled in Silicon Valley for fifty years

       C. she got marred to a technical specialist

       D. her husband suffered from cancer

    22. What is the author’s mother most proud of according to the passage?

       A. Having so many close neighbors.            B. Experiencing too much all her life.

       C. Living simply and in her own style.          D. Being involved in modern technology.

    23. What is the author’s attitude towards his mother’s such kind of experience?

       A. Critical.            B. Positive.           C. Neutral.          D. Negative.

    24. It is implied in the underlined sentence that              .

       A. the author should make efforts to learn from his mother

       B. the author prefers watching movies online to watching TV

       C. Mom’s attitude towards technology has an effect on the author

       D. Mom should also set down the relationship with physical books

       I walked to Mrs. Windsor’s house and waited outside. She was working with another student, and I was not supposed to bother them by ringing the bell. I stood against the wall and daydreamed what I’d rather be doing. I had been tutored enough to read, understand, and even write some musical compositions, but I just didn’t have a gift for it. Mrs. Windsor had offered to give me the lessons for free, so I felt my duty to try.

        The door opened and Wendy Barton came out. I walked in, sat down on the piano bench and began to sort through my sheet music. Today Mrs. Windsor introduced her niece Pasha to teach me. With a smile, Pasha sat beside me on the piano bench, opened my sheet music to the beginning page and asked me to play. I arranged my fingers on the keys. Then I frowned(皱眉) and concentrated to make the notes on the page match the finger movements. I had to admit I was a rather mechanical (呆板的)pianist.

       After about a page or two, Pasha gently put her hand on top of mine as if to calm my fingers. There was a long pause. “What are you hearing in the music?” I looked at her rather strangely and admitted I didn’t know what she meant. “Like a story. Here, let me try and you listen,” Pasha advised.

       She closed her eyes and took a deep breath, letting her fingers dance lightly over the keys. Then, she began to play. “See, it begins here beside some kind of river. Hear the water flowing beside you?”

       Her fingers rose and fell gently on the keys. “Now the princess appears and she’s picking flowers from the water’s edge.” A happy piece of music filled the air in time to Pasha’s dancing fingers. “Oh, but she slips!” The music changed. “And our princess is being carried off by the fast-flowing stream. Quickly, the princess’ horse sees her plight (困境) and races to the river’s edge where he swims out to let her catch hold of him. Luckily, they make it to the bank.” Pasha said.

       I played many pieces of music that afternoon, finding the stories in the music and learning that sometimes it takes a friend to pull you out of the river onto dry land again.

    1. By describing herself as a mechanical pianist, the author meant  _______.

       A. she could remember the notes in a short time       

       B. she was playing the piano without emotion     

       C. her fingers couldn’t move freely     

       D. it had been a long time since she played last time

    2. Which of the following can best describe Pasha?

       A. Creative.         B. Honest.           C. Humorous.        D. Brave.

    3. Pasha’s magic of playing the piano lies in that she ______.

       A. imagined herself as a princess    B. knew its original background story   

       C. had a strong desire to make a friend        D. combined the music with a story

    4. Which of the following is the best title for the text?

    A. A Friend Forever         B. Never Give up    

    C. A Piano Lesson               D. My Favorite Piece of Music

    He has the coolest hair, and he is so funny. Every time you see him, you feel shy and embarrassed.

    You don’t even know her, but you feel nervous whenever you see her and when she looks at you, you just smile like an idiot.

    If a girl or a boy is making you feel this way, it sounds like you have a crush(爱恋).

    Nothing your first crush is an exciting time. Sometimes , feelings for a crush can be confusing because they’re new to you. If you feel awkward around your crush, you’re not alone.

Likewise, never let anyone behave in a way that makes you feel funny or uncomfortable.

    When you develop special feelings toward someone, you might want to talk with friends about it, but sometimes kids tease(取笑) other kids about crushes. Getting teased is never fun, so if you need someone to talk with about a crush, a parent can be a good choice. They were kids once, too, and they know what it’s like. Maybe they’ll tell you about their own first crush!

    When you have a crush on someone and you find out that he or she likes you, too, it’s a wonderful feeling. But sometimes it doesn’t work out that way. You might feel sad, disappointed, and rejected . If you feel heartbreak, those feelings can last for a while, but they will fade. And, try to be kind if you’re on the other end of a crushwhen someone likes you. It’s a compliment when someone thinks you’re special. If you don’t feel the same way, try to tell him or her in a nice way.

    It snowed again. My seventh Christmas was around the corner. I dreamed of getting the present from Santa Claus until my elder sister told me: “There is no Santa Claus.”

        I ran to my grandmother’s house, for she always told the truth. Grandmother was at home. I told her everything.

        “No Santa Claus?” she said. “Ridiculous (荒谬的)! I don’t believe it. Put on your coat and let’s go.”

        “Go where?” I asked.

        As we walked through the doors of the general store, Grandma handed me 10 dollars and said: “Buy something for someone who needs it.”

        I just stood there, thinking about what to buy and who to buy it for.

        I thought of everybody I knew. Then I thought about Bobbie Decker. He didn’t have a coat. He never went out to play games in winter. I would buy him one.

        That evening, Grandma helped me wrap the coat and write, “To Bobbie, from Santa Claus” on it. Then she drove me over to his house.

        Grandma parked down the street, and we hid behind the trees near Bobbie’s house. Then she said: “All right, Santa Claus is coming.”

        I rushed for his front door, and put down the present outside his door. I rang his doorbell then flew back to the trees. We waited breathlessly in the dark for the front door to open. Finally it did and there stood Bobbie. That night, I realized Santa was alive and well, and we were on his team.

    24. After hearing her sister’s words, the writer was ______.

    A. It was always better to tell the truth.     

    B. Giving can make a person feel happy.

    C. There was a real Santa Claus in the world.

      The Big Brother in the novel 1984 listens to everything and nothing can escape his ears . Now in reality , we have Facebook . The social media giant has never denied that it’s keeping track of conversations you have near your phone ( if the Facebook app is open , that is ) , but not , one expert has told NBC that Mark Zuckerberg’s empire may be keeping ears on you at a more regular basis . According to Professor Kelli Burns , who teaches mass communication at the University of South Florida , it may be listening more often than it lets on .

    To prove her point , Burns turned on the microphone feature on her phone , and said , “ I’m really interested in going on an African journey . I think it’d be wonderful to ride in one of those jeeps . ” Less than a minute later , when she checked her Facebook page , she was met by a story about a journey – the first post on her newsfeed . There was also a car ad on her page .

    While Facebook says that it’s only keeping its ears open to help “ identify the music you’re listening to and TV matches you’re watching , ” Burns’ little experiment suggests that there may be other motivations at play as well . But the social media company has denied claims that it records any conversations , and told The Independent , “ Facebook does not use microphone audio to inform advertising or News Feed stories in any way . Businesses are able to serve related ads based on people’s interests and other statistic information , but not through audio collection . ”

    Whether you believe this statement or not , there are ways to stop Facebook from listening in at all . Simply turn off your phone’s microphone by heading over into Settings ( if you’re an iPhone user ) , going to the Privacy tab , then clicking on Microphone . From there , you can remove Facebook’s mic privileges , and probably , stop the company from hearing your conversations . On Android , you can also go to Privacy under the Settings tab , and change Facebook’s permissions .

    So the next time you’re chatting with your friends about your summer vacation plans , keep an eye on your Facebook feed . There may be more participants in your conversation than you realize .

    28. Why does the author mention the Big Brother in the first paragraph ?

    A. To explain who Big Brother is .

    B. To stress the importance of Facebook .

    C. To introduce the topic about Facebook .

      Like many new graduates, I left university full of hope for the future but with no real idea of what I wanted to do. My degree, with honors, in English literature had not really prepared me for anything practical. I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world somehow, but I had no idea how to do that. That’s when I learned about the Lighthouse Project.

      I started my journey as a Lighthouse Project volunteer by reading as much as I could about the experiences of previous volunteers. I knew it would be a lot of hard work, and that I would be away from my family and friends for a very long time. In short, I did not take my decision to apply for the Lighthouse Project lightly. Neither did my family.

      Eventually, however, I won the support of my family, and I sent in all the paperwork needed for the application. After countless interviews and presentations, I managed to stand out among the candidates and survive the test alone. Several months later, I finally received a call asking me to report for the duty. I would be going to a small village near Abuja, Nigeria. Where? What? Nigeria? I had no idea. But I was about to find out.

      After completing my training, I was sent to the village that was small and desperately in need of proper accommodation. Though the local villagers were poor, they offered their homes, hearts, and food as if I were their own family. I was asked to lead a small team of local people in building a new schoolhouse. For the next year or so, I taught in that same schoolhouse. But I sometimes think I learned more from my students than they did from me. Sometime during that period, I realized that all those things that had seemed so strange or unusual to me no longer did, though I did not get anywhere with the local language, and returned to the United States a different man. The Lighthouse Project had changed my life forever.

    24. What do we know about the author?

    A. His university education focused on the theoretical knowledge.

    B. His dream at university was to become a volunteer.

    C. He took pride in having contributed to the world.

    D. He felt honored to study English literature.

    25. According to Paragraph 2, it is most likely that the author __________.

    A. discussed his decision with his family

    B. asked previous volunteers about voluntary work

    C. attended special training to perform difficult tasks

    D. felt frightened about having to leave his family and friends

    26. In his application for the volunteer job, the author ___________.

    A. participated in many discussions

    B. went through challenging survival tests

    C. wrote quite a few papers on voluntary work

    D. faced strong competition from other candidates

    27. What can we infer from the author’s experiences in Nigeria?

    A. He found some difficulty adapting to the local culture.

    B. He had learned to communicate in the local language.[学优高考网]

    C. He had overcome all his weaknesses before he left for home.

    D. He was chosen as the most respectable teacher by his students.

    Alexander von Humboldt was born in 1769 in Berlin, Germany. As a young boy, he wanted to learn about the world. Humboldt followed his dream. In 1799, he traveled with a friend to Central and South America.

    On their trip, Humboldt and his friend saw and did many things. They sailed down the Amazon River. They watched dolphins play in the ocean. They explored the rain forest and climbed mountains and volcanoes. They were able to make the first maps of the northern part of South America.

    Humboldt set a world record for mountain climbing. He also made a discovery. During his climb, Humboldt became very sick. He found out that the higher he climbed, the less oxygen there was in the air. This made it more difficult to breathe. Later, this became known as mountain sickness.

    Science was another part of Humboldt’s interests. He wanted to write about all of the new things he saw. He described the new plants, animals, and rocks which had never been seen by scientists before.

    Humboldt also studied the way of life of the local people. He learned how the native people along the Amazon River used plants in their daily lives. For example, they used a strong poison from a vine(蔓生植物) to make poisoned arrows. The natives used these arrows for hunting their food.

    The Amazon Indians also used a native plant to treat malaria (疟疾), a serious illness. The plant grew wild, but after it was dug up, it was never replanted.

    Christmas was two days away. Had the packages with a camera in already been placed under the Christmas tree? That was the only thing that I had longed for. A million times I had kept dropping hints to my parents. Taking photos is my favorite. My bedroom walls are covered with photos I had taken with my mom’s old camera. I’m always trying to snap(抓拍) those wonderful moments in which you can hear the laughter or touch the beautiful scene, but my camera has always seemed to fall short.

    I knew Mom had put a few presents under the tree this morning, so I went on a hunt in my mom’s room. I opened the door and found my Christmas present was lying unwrapped on the floor --- a big pink cat. My heart sank.

    Mom seemed to notice that, and she tried to cheer me up. “Jenny, I got your present today. I am so excited to surprise you!” “I can’t wait,” I said.

    The next day I couldn’t wait any longer. I needed to tell her.

    “Mom, may I talk to you for a moment?”

    “Sure, dear. What do you need to talk about?” she asked.

    And so it came ---how upset I was that I was getting a cat! 

    “Jenny, that cat is for your sister Julia!” she said with a smile.

    “Then what am I getting” I asked.

    She just smiled. “You’ll have to wait and see.”

    Next morning, I happily got into the living room and sat next to the tree. I pulled out the box with my name on it and opened the wrapping paper to find …

    My camera! “Thank you!” I said to both Dad and Mom.

    Dad picked up the camera and took a picture of Julia, Mom and me. It has become one of my favorite pictures. Just on that Christmas morning, I took lots of photos with my camera --- my little sister making a face, my parents giving me a soft smile --- and all of these photos have come to mean one thing to me: love.

    21.The underlined phrase “fall short” in Paragraph 1 probably means _____.

    A. be too expensive                                   B. be not good enough  

    C. become short after falling                     D. drop to the ground

    22.Why did Jenny’s heart sink at first?

    A. Her mother refused to talk to her.           B. She mistook her sister’s Christmas gift for hers.

    C. Her present was not well wrapped.        D. Her mother forgot to buy her any Christmas gift.

    23.We can learn form the passage that ________.

    A. Jenny was happy to accept the pink cat

    B. Jenny’s mother bought her a camera after discovering her disappointment

    C. Jenny thought it was OK to have an old camera

    D. Jenny’s mother knew what she wanted as a Christmas gift

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

    My 11-year-old son and I ride bikes to and from his school every day. I accompany him on the 20-minute ride through Manhattan, drop him off and return at the end of day to pick him up. We always ride together; sometimes he leads; sometimes I do. And as we ride, we communicate the ways to minimize the dangers: Don’t go too fast, and watch out for doors suddenly swinging out from parked cars and jaywalking pedestrians, etc. Some friends worry about the risk of riding in traffic, but is there a better way to let my son know how to deal with traffic dangers?

    But recently he requested me to start hanging back a half block or so. This way he could enjoy the feeling of riding on his own, with the security of knowing that I was nearby in case he needed me. This is healthy, of course, as my son needs space to develop independence in preparation for his inevitable (不可避免的) departure from home. However, that means soon he will want to ride to school on his own, and I will no longer have this wonderful routine. “Let your children go if you want to keep them.” I understand this and am trying to let my son go in age-appropriate phases, but I still suffer. It’s one of the most troubling experiences of parenthood — recognizing that your presence is becoming less welcome.

    My dilemma as a husband mirrors the concern I feel as a parent. My wife has just left on a six-month mission to cover the situation in Libya. In the days leading up to her departure, we spoke openly about the possibility, however unlikely, that she might be killed. But while I influence her decisions, I do not control them. Finally, it was her decision. I know that letting go is the wisest path in this case too.

    As we travel through life’s phases, we must let go of so much. And I don’t think it gets easier with practice. But maybe just accepting that eventually we will have to let go is the secret to living a full life.

    21. According to the passage, when riding bikes together, ________.

      A. the writer and his son take turns leading the way to school

      B. the writer hopes that his son could learn to be more dependent

      C. the writer and his son share opinions to reduce possible dangers

      D. the son always keeps the writer hanging back a half block or so

    22. Although he thinks his son’s request understandable, the writer ________.

      A. regrets not giving his son enough space        B. feels upset for being rejected by his son      

      C. shows great concern for his son’s safety        D. feel proud that his son rides on his own

    23. We can infer that the writer’s wife may be a(n) ________.

      A. journalist          B. soldier.           C. politician           D. activist

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

      A. Live a full life                           B. Learn to let go

      C. Father love is great                       D. Practice makes perfect

    When I was 16 years old, I made my first visit to the United States. It wasn’t the first time I had been abroad. Like most English children I learned French at school. And I had often been to France, so I was used to speaking a foreign language to people who didn’t understand English. But when I went to America, I was really looking forward to having a nice easy holiday without any language problems.

    How wrong I was! The misunderstanding began at the airport. I was looking for a public telephone to give my friend Danny a call and tell her that I had arrived. A friendly old man saw me looking lost and asked if he could help me.

    “Yes,” I said. “I want to give my friend a ring.”

    “Well, that’s nice,” he said. “Are you getting married? But aren’t you a bit young?”

    “Who is talking about marriage?” I replied. “ I only want to give my friend a ring to tell her I’ve arrived. Can you tell me where’s a phone box?”

    “Oh!” he said, “there’s a phone downstairs.”

    When at last we met, Danny explained the misunderstanding to me.

    “ Don’t worry,” she said to me, “ I had so many difficulties at first. There are lost of words which the Americans use differently in meaning from the British. You will soon get used to all the funny things they say. Most of the time British and American people understand each other!”

           My family often had a get-together with friends in my childhood.  As I was smart, there was always someone who would come up to mention my high intelligence and ask, "What are you going to do when you grow up?" Well,  it started out being a teacher or a hero.  Later it was a fireman, an artist. . . As I grew older, my dreams of the future changed. When I was going to college, I was asked, "What will you major in?", another question  designed to find out what I would be when I grew up.

       By then I made up my mind to become a computer programmer.  So I was studying software for much of my

    life. I am happy that I could realize my dream.  The realization of my life purpose encourages me to help others to succeed in their own lives.

       However, for many, there is a "thief" which goes around stealing our dreams and robbing us of the

    necessary mental state to achieve our goals. Sometimes, the thief will come as a parent, a relative, or a friend, but the greatest thief is just ourselves.   Usually when we are about to reach the aim, a "small" voice inside will say, "You will never succeed. ""Very few have ever done this successfully. " And on and on the "small" voice makes us lose heart and fail.

         Failure, though, helps our dreams to come true. It is one of the most important tools we have, because it teaches us valuable lessons.  And, when we learn these lessons well, we are ready for success.

        There are no "overnight" successes, but with perseverance, they will come. So just don't give up. Let dreams stay in your life.

    32. Some people would always ask the author's future plan because

        A. they wanted to find some topic to talk with the author

        B. the author was very clever and would do great things in their opinion

         C. they had nothing to do in the author's house

         D. the author's parents asked them to do

    33. Who will be most likely to steal our dreams according to the author?

        A. A parent.         B. A relative.         C. A friend.            D. Ourselves.

    34. Which of the following has the closest meaning to the underlined word "perseverance" in the last paragraph?

         A. Determination.         B. Expression.         C. Organization.      D. Confidence.

    35. What can we infer about the author?

        A. His parents are well educated.

        B. He didn't like others to ask his future plan.

        C. He finally became a computer programmer.

        D. He thought the failure was not a good thing.

    Many years ago, when I graduated from school and was working in Denver, I was driving to my parents' home in Missouri for Christmas. I stopped at a gas station about 50 miles from Oklahoma City, where I was planning to stop and visit a friend. While I was standing in line at the cash register (收款台), I said hello to an older couple who were also paying for gas.

    I took off, but had gone only a few miles when black smoke poured from the back of my car. I stopped and wondered what I should do. A car pulled up behind me. It was the couple I had spoken to at the gas station. They said they would take me to my friend's. We chatted on the way into the city, and when I got out of the car, the husband gave me his business card.

    I wrote him and his wife a thank-you note for helping me. Soon afterward, I received a Christmas present from them. Their note that came with it said that helping me had made their holidays meaningful.

        The other day, I was thinking about the phrase "It's a dog's life". According to my dictionary, this means "life is hard and unpleasant", but that definition is surely obsolete. A dog's life these days, at least in my house, is extremely comfortable.

        This is by no means the only phrase in the English language that suggests a dog's life is a sad one. When we become less successful than we were in the past, we "go to the dogs";when we do something very badly, we make a "dog's breakfast" of it; if we feel really bad,we're "as sick as a dog". Unattractive or unpleasant people are considered "such a dog"!      .

        Cats do no better. They are described as humourless and cruel rulers ("While the cat's away, the mouse will play") or as self-satisfied ("The-cat that got the cream"). They are also related to unspeakable horrors. For example, "There's not enough room to swing a cat".

    "Cat" is a short form of the cat-o'-nine-tails (九尾鞭). The phrase probably originated at sea,where unfortunate sailors were beaten in tiny spaces. Despite all the above, "the cat's whiskers()” are the most desirable whiskers.

        How our lovely companions entered the language in this way remains a mystery, but there are some explanations. "To let the-cat out of the bag" probably refers to traders who tried to pass off(冒充) an old cat as a nice juicy little pig. "It's raining cats and dogs",meanwhile,is related to cats with the mysterious(神秘的) force controlling the weather and dogs with the wind. Other sources suggest that it dates from the time when inner-city gutters(排水沟) overflowed with rubbish and dead animals.

        Many of these phrases reflect a time when cats and dogs were not as cherished as they are now. My own personal motto "Love me; love my dog" dates back as far as 1485, when it was recorded in a book called Early English Miscellanies. Although originally it may imply

    "If you really love me, you will have to accept my boils and scars(疤痕), it now means "If you love me, you will get to play with my little doggies, too".

    28.The underlined word "obsolete" in Paragraph I probably means        .

    A. wrong         B. out of date       C. unclear        D. beyond recognition

    29.If someone goes downhill, we can say he        .

    A. is such a dog            B. is as sick as a dog

    C. has gone to the dogs      D. has made a dog's breakfast

    30.In what way is "the cat's whiskers" different from the other phrases in Paragraph 3?

    A. Its origin is unknown.               B. It is not used anymore.

    C. It presents a positive image of cats.    D.Its meaning has changed over the years.

    31.One of the origins of "It's raining cats and dogs" is associated with        .

    A. fairy tales                       B. a mysterious event

    C. animals' poor conditions           D. a dishonest businessman

    He met her at a party. She was outstanding; many guys were after her, but nobody paid any attention to him. After the party, he invited her for coffee. She was surprised, so as not to appear rude, she went along.

    As they sat in a nice coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything and she felt uncomfortable. Suddenly, he asked the waiter, “Could you please give me some salt? I'd like to put it in my coffee."

    They stared at him. He turned red, but when the salt came, he put it in his coffee and drank. Curious, she asked, "Why salt with coffee?" He explained, "When I was a little boy, I lived near the sea. I liked playing on the sea. I could feel it salty, like salty coffee. Now every time I drink it, I think of my childhood and my hometown. I miss it and my parents, who are still there."

    She was deeply moved. A man who can admit that he's homesick must love his home and care about his family. He must be responsible. She talked too, about her faraway hometown, her childhood, her family. That was the start to their love story.

    They continued to date. She found that he met all her requirements. He was tolerant, kind, warm and careful. And to think she would have missed the catch if not for the salty coffee! So they married and lived happily together. And every time she made coffee for him, she put in some salt, the way he liked it.

    After 40 years, he passed away and left her a letter which said:

    My dearest, please forgive my life-long lie. Remember the first time we dated? I was so nervous that I asked for salt instead of sugar. It was hard for me to ask for a change, so I just went ahead. I never thought that we would hit it off. Many times, I tried to tell you the truth, but I was afraid that it would ruin everything.

    Sweetheart, I don't exactly like salty coffee. But as it mattered so much to you, I've learnt to enjoy it. Having you with me was my greatest happiness. If I could live a second time, I hope we can be together again, even if it means that I have to drink salty coffee for the rest of my life.

    21. She accepted his invitation for coffee because_______

      A. she fell in love with him                   B. she didn’t want to be impolite

      C. no one paid attention to him               D. no one else was interested in her

    22. Why the man asked for some salt was because ____________ 

      A. salty coffee made him miss his parents. 

      B. he want to catch the attention of the lady.

      C. he was so nervous that he made a mistake 

      D. he was telling a lie on purpose.

    23. What might be the women’s feeling after she read the letter?

    Every school has an ugly girl. In my primary school, it was me.

    From first grade through fourth, I had to wear heavy orthopedic(整形外科的)shoes because of my weak ankles. I sounded like overweight elephant wearing bricks whenever I took a single step.
          “Hey, Bigfoot!”
          “Geez, you’re going to start an earthquake!”
          Then in sixth grade I had to start wear glasses. Mom asked for the least expensive ones and that made me look like a fool.
          “Four eyes!”
            “Couldn’t you cover up more of your faces? Why stop at the eyes?”
          In Seventh, I started competing on the city swim team, thinking that if I got a killer body, nobody would notice my face. Wrong again. I loved being fast and winning ribbons now and then, but now I had red, wet eyes from the chlorine(
    ) in the pool. I also did not develop a killer body.
          I changed my strategy at Eighth grade, the last year of middle school. I offered my help to anyone who needs. I worked for other girls, so they could hang out with their friends. My new program began to work. People who would never have acknowledged my existence before were suddenly seeking me out.
          I’d been feeling pretty good until one day I went to Christine’s house to help her fill envelopes. Going into each envelope was invitation to Christine’s birthday party; it was a big event at a fancy hotel. Complete with dinner. She asked me to help her address these envelopes. There was no envelope for me.
          My heart was broken. I tried to escape from all the eyes. High school had to be better, right
    Yes and no. Now that I’m here, I know there are still lots of shallow people judging you on what you’re wearing or how cool your hair is , but there are also kids who talk to you because they liked your answers or just as you’re kind, honest, and a good friend.
          I still do kind things because I like the feeling I get when I am helping people. I, with my friends, went to Children’s hospital, playing games and reading to the sick kids.
          I still had wet red and not a smart look, but you cannot tell me I am not beautiful. Every time I visit hospital, five-year-old Terry grasps my hand, “Morri, you are so nice. I want to grow up to be just like you.”
