       Have you ever run into a careless cell phone user on the street? Perhaps they were busy talking, texting or checking updates on WeChat without looking at what was going on around them. As the number of this new “species” of human has kept rising, they have been given a new name — phubbers(低头族).

    Recently, a cartoon created by students from China Central Academy of Fine Arts put this group of people under the spotlight. In the short film, phubbers with various social identities(身份) bury themselves in their phones. A doctor plays with his cell phone while letting his patient die, a pretty woman takes selfie in front of a car accident site, and a father loses his child without knowing about it while using his mobile phone. A chain of similar events eventually leads to the destruction of the world.

    Although the ending sounds overstated, the damage phubbing can bring is real.

    Your health is the first to bear the effect and result of it. “Constantly bending your head to check your cell phone could damage your neck,” Guangming Daily quoted doctors as saying. “the neck is like a rope that breaks after long-term stretching.” Also, staring at cell phones for long periods of time will damage your eyesight gradually, according to the report.

    But that’s not all. Being a phubber could also damage your social skills and drive you away from your friends and family. At reunions with family or friends, many people tend to stick to their cell phones while others are chatting happily with each other and this creates a strange atmosphere, Qilu Evening News reported.

    It can also cost you your life. There have been lots of reports on phubbers who fell to their death, suffered accidents, and were robbed of their cell phones in broad daylight.

    24. For what purpose does the author give the example of a cartoon in Paragragh2?

    A. To inform people of the bad effects of phubbing.

    B. To advertise the cartoon made by students.

    C. To indicate the world will finally be destroyed by phubbers.

    D. To warn doctors against using cell phones while treating patients.

    25. Which of the following is NOT a risk a phubber may have?

    A. His social skills could be affected.

    B. His neck and eyesight will be gradually harmed.

    C. He will cause the destruction of the world.

    D. He might get separated from his friends and family.

    26. Which of the following may be the author’s attitude towards phubbing?

    A. Supportive.      B. Opposed.        C. Optimistic.      D. Objective.

    27. What may the passage talk about next?

    A. Advice on how to use a cell phone.

    B. People addicted to phubbing.

    C. Measures to reduce the risks of phubbing.

    D. Consequences of phubbing.

    "I didn't hear them call my name," explained Shelley Hennig to Active Teens (AT) as she talked about that exciting moment on national television when she won the honor of Miss Teen USA 2004. "Are you ready?" is what she heard. Then she said, "I shook my head no, and then they said 'yes' and it was announced again."

    It was four days after that life changing moment for the seventeen-year-old high school student from Destrehan, Louisiana -- she was still on cloud nine.

    "I was so shocked! I never believed that it could actually really happen." Present in the audience that day were: her mother and father, older brother, her friends, and her dance teacher.

    Understanding why members of her family and her friends would be there, AT asked why her dance teacher had traveled so far to see her compete. "She's always been my role model. I've danced with her since I was six. She's been through so many difficulties and came through them all. I've learned to get over bad life's experiences and learned how to move on because of her."

    One of those bad life's experiences for Shelley happened three years ago when her brother Brad was killed in a drunk driving accident. He was 18. She found writing helped her get through the rough days. She said, "I write a lot about my brother. I write a lot, a lot, a lot..."

    As Miss Louisiana Teen, she traveled around the state speaking to teens about the dangers of drinking and driving. In her role as Miss Teen USA, Shelley will continue to speak to youth about safe driving, in addition to many other things to help the youth.

         When AT asked Miss Teen USA if she had any advice for our readers, she said, "Don't let anyone change you. Hang out with people that make you feel good about yourself. That way, it is easy to be yourself."

    9. What do the words "on cloud nine" in Paragraph 2 probably mean?

    A. frightened     B. troubled     C. very happy    D. very angry

    10. Shelley takes her dance teachers as a role model mainly because she is ________.

    A. determined    B. friendly      C. strict        D. experienced

    11. What suggestion does Shelley give to the teens?

    A. Be yourself with the support of friends.             B. Meet friends whenever possible.

    C. Go easy on yourself and others.                   D. Have a good role model.

    Whether you love happy endings or a dark reality in TV dramas,you could soon be able to decide what you get. Netflix,the TV-streaming company behind hit shows such as The Crown and House Of Cards,is working on ways to give viewers control of key plot decisions.

    Some of the storylines will be simple and linear,like the Choose Your Own Adventure books that many grew up with.For example,viewers might decide whether a prisoner in the drama Orange Is The New Black joins a gang (黑帮) or not.

Netflix president Reed Hastings confirmed that the company is working on interactive shows,saying,"Once you have got interactivity,you can try anything."

    At least five million UK households are thought to be signed up to Netflix,and it is challenging traditional broadcasters.Earlier this year,BBC boss Lord Hall promised to reinvent the iPlayer so that it overtakes Netflix as a destination in its own right,rather than a catch-up service.

    Younger students experience school bullying (欺凌) more frequently than older ones, and male students are bullied more than their female peers, a survey found.

    It also found that nearly half of students had been intentionally hit or knocked down by classmates. About 6 percent said they are targeted by bullies on campus every day. The survey also found that students from ordinary schools experienced more bullying than peers from key institutions, and children from poor families are more likely to be bullied at school.

    Being bullied can have a negative impact on a child’s personal development and academic performance, according to Zhou Jinyan, a researcher who led the study at Beijing Normal University. “Children being bullied will find it hard to trust others,” Zhou said. “They may often feel anxiety, anger, resentment or depression. These emotions will further undermine their ability to control their own life.”

    In recent years, bullying on Chinese campuses has been frequently reported and has attracted widespread attention and concern. The most recent incident to arouse heated discussions took place in December at Beijing’s Zhongguancun No.2 Primary School. A fourth-grade student was bullied and laughed at by classmates, causing him acute stress disorder.

    The Supreme People’s Procuratorate (最高人民检察院) received about 1,900 cases related to school bullying in 2016. Meanwhile, there was a notable increase in bullying reports involving middle school students from 14 to 18 years old.

    Zhou came up with some ways to solve the problem, including boosting communication between teachers, parents and students and trying to establish more harmonious relationships among children. She said it was strongly suggested that parents try to be involved in their children’s educational experience, as their presence and companionship have proved effective in reducing bullying and its negative effects.

    32. Who is the most likely to become the target of bullying?

    A. A 10-year-old boy from a poor family        B. A 17-year-old boy from a rich family

    C. A 17-year-old girl from an ordinary school D. A 10-year-old girl from a key school

    33. Being bullied will cause students to go through the following EXCEPT _____.

    A. a lack of trust in other people

    B. a drop in the sense of depression

    C. a lack of confidence in themselves

    D. a drop in academic performance

    34. We can learn from the text that _____.

    A. bullying on campus has been brought into sharp focus by the media

    B. students who enjoy parents’ companionship will be bullying-free

    C. the government should consider taking further action against bullying at school

    D. bullying at school usually leads to acute stress disorder

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

    A. Negative effects on children caused by bullying

    B. Is anything we can do about bullying?

    C. The reasons for bullying on campus

    D. Bullying affects half of students

    Pop idols  are celebrities  who burn brighter  than regular  stars. If a star is someone you can recognize on the street, an idol is someone who will cause a stir at a public appearance.

    Without fans, an idol is just an ordinary person, like you and me. As Reese Witherspoon once said  while  announcing  the  Oscar  for  best  make-up,  movie  stars   look  just  like  people   in documentaries(纪录片) if you see them without make-up.

    I was once invited to a private party where about half of the guests were stars and the other half entertainment

    reporters. Guess what? The good-looking ones were the reporters because they tend to be young, and they glow without make-up.

    Some idols are born; some are made. Most idols are created by a machine called the entertainment industry. They may have some charms and talent, but not enough to become famous. They are the raw material out of which a star, or even an idol, is made. An army of behind-the-scenes assistants will hype(炒作) or even make up their virtues and hide their shortcomings.

    Paris Hilton is the kind of star who possesses no real talent but yet is quite well-known. This is the result of endless hype. If you are thrust into the limelight often enough, you can become a celebrity without having any talent.

    Television contest shows create a much fairer more transparent platform where young people can compete and showcase their talent. The soap opera is another platform for idol making. These drama

    series are long, giving an actor much needed exposure. The actors and actresses are always well-lit, made up and beautifully dressed. Now all they need is some good dialogue from the scriptwriter( 编 剧).

    1. Which of the following statements agrees with the writer’s viewpoint?

    A. Most idols are born.

    B. The entertainment industry is more popular.

    C. Many stars are often good looking

    D. Pop idols are not as pretty as you think.

    2. Why does the writer use the example of Paris Hilton?

    A. To show that hype is an important element in making a star.

    B. To indicate that Paris Hilton is very famous.

    C. To prove a star often lacks talent.

    D. To show a star is popular because of the acting skills.

    3. What does the writer think of the television contest show?

    A. More practical    B. More formal    C. More equal    D. More competitive

    Although being famous might sound like a dream coming true, today’s stars, feeling like zoo animals, face pressures that few of us can imagine. They are at the center of much of the world’ s attention. Paparazzi (狗仔队) camp outside their homes, cameras ready. Tabloids (小报) publish thrilling stories about their personal lives. Just imagine not being able to do anything without being photographed or interrupted for a signature!

    According to psychologist Christina Villareal, celebrities—famous people—worry constantly about their public appearance. Eventually, they start to lose track of who they really are, seeing themselves the way their fans imagine them, not as the persons they were before everyone knew their names. “Over time,” Villareal says, “they feel separated and alone.”

    The phenomenon of tracking celebrities has been around for ages. In the 4th century B.C., painters followed Alexander the Great into battle, hoping to picture his victories for his admirers. When Charles Dickens visited America in the 19th century, his sold-out readings attracted thousands of fans, leading him to complain (抱怨) about his lack of privacy. Tabloids of the 1920s and 1930s ran articles about film-stars in much the same way that modern tabloids and websites do.

    Being a public figure today, however, is a lot more difficult than it used to be. Superstars cannot move about without worrying about photographers with modern cameras. When they say something silly or do something ridiculous, there is always the Internet to spread the news in minutes and keep their “story” alive forever.

    If fame is so troublesome, why aren’t all celebrities running away from it? The answer is that there are still ways to deal with it. Some stars stay calm by surrounding themselves with trusted friends and family or by escaping to remote places away from big cities. They focus not on how famous they are but on what they love to do or whatever made them famous in the first place.

    Sometimes a few celebrities can get a little justice. Still, even stars who enjoy full justice often complain about how hard their lives are. They are tired of being famous already.

    12. It can be learned from the passage that stars today ________.

    A. are often misunderstood by the public

    B. can no longer have their privacy protected

    C. spend too much on their public appearance

    D. care little about how they have come into fame

    13. What is the main idea of Paragraph 3?

    A. Great heroes of the past were gener ally admired.

    B. The problem faced by celebrities has a long history.

    C. Well-known actors are usually targets of tabloids.

    D. Works of popular writers often have a lot of readers.

    14. What makes it much harder to be a celebrity today?

    A. Availability of modern media.                

    B. Inadequate social recognition.

    C. Lack of favorable chances.

    D. Huge population of fans.

    15. What is the author’s attitude toward modern celebrity?

    A. Sincere.    B. Skeptical.

    C. Disapproving.    D. Sympathetic.

    For a year and half, kids sent hurtful messages like “You are ugly.” or “Why are you still alive?” to Rebecca Sedwick. In 2013, Rebecca, then 12, couldn’t stand it anymore. She took her own life near her home in Florida. Soon afterward, Trisha Prabhu read about the story. “I was surprised and heart-broken,” said Trisha, now 15, who is from Naperville, Illinois, “I know that I had to do something to stop this from happening again.”

    Trisha did some research. Studies show that one fourth to half of all teens in the US have been cyberbullied (网络欺凌). Experts say that if you are ever bullied online, you should tell a trusted adult. Tell the cyberbully to stop, and prevent him or her from contacting you again. Print and save messages to share with the police. This is good advice, agrees Trisha. But these methods all take place after the bullying has already happened. Trisha had a different idea. Why not teach cyberbullies to stop before they post these messages?

    Trisha’s research won awards, including a prize in the Google Science Fair. Then, Tresah built the ReThink app (应用软件). It is programmed to recognize words or phrases that could be hurtful. When that happens, different warning messages come out. “Don’t say things that you may regret later!” says one message. Others ask, “Are you sure you want to say this?” and “Are these words really yours?”

    Now Trisha is working on a version(版本) of ReThink for computers. “I am a big dreamer,” she says. “I want to stop cyberbullying before the hurt is done.”

    21. What do we know about Rebecca Sedwick?

    A. She was one of Trisha’s best friends.    B. She sent hurtful messages to others.

    C. She ended her life at the age of 12.       D. She went to Florida to study further.

    22. What is Trisha’s suggestion for stopping cyberbullying?

      A.Stop talking with the cyberbully.    B.Stop the messages before they are sent.

      C.Turn to your parents or close friends. D.Show the messages to the police at once.

    23. What is the third paragraph mainly about?

      A. How the ReThink app works.          B. Trisha’s research on cyberbullying.

      C. People’s attitudes to the ReThink app.     D. The Google Science Fair.

    24. Which of the following can best describe Trisha?

      A. Honest and careful.                          B. Strange and impatient.

      C. Proud and impolite.                         D. Helpful and clever.

      Another day, another crash involving a Tesla.

       On  Wednesday Tesla said one of its customers in Beijing was caught  unprepared  last week when his car, which had autopilot  enabled, sidcswiped another vehicle that was partially parked off the side of the road. The accident caused some damagebut nobody was hur.

         Tesla's analysis of the vehicle data records showed that the driver didn't have his hands on the wheel. The driver doesn’t appear to argue about that account, accusing Tesla salespeople of misleading him into thinking that the car had fully self-driving capabilities.

         Here’s how Tesla described the crash in a statement to The Washington Post:

        The customers dash earn video shows that the Tesla was being driven on a highway in China where a vehicle was parked on the left shoulder straddling the left lane. The Tesla was following closely behind the car in front of it when the lead car moved to the right to avoid hitting the parked car- The driver of the Teslawhose hands were oot detected on the steering wheel (方向盘)did not steer (转向) to avoid the parked car and instead scraped against its side. As clearly communicated to the driver in the vehicle. Autosteer is an assist feature that requires the driver to keep his hands on the steering wheel at all times,to always maintain control and responsibility for the vehicleand to be prepared to take over at any time.

         Considering the number of Tesla accidents that have made the news in the last three to four months, it's vital that drivers fully understand what Tesla’s autopilot can and can t do. It's not like one of Google's driverless cars, where engineers hope passengers will someday be able to push a buttonsit back and enjoy the ride. Tesla s autopilot is much closer to a form of advanced  cruise conlrol.

        The autopilot feature was rolled out in October 2015. But unlike a fully driverless car—which the government would classify as “Level 4 automation”Tesla's  autopilot is designed to keep you within a lane, and from hitting other carsunder a limited set of circumstances.

          Tesla is generally up  front in its marketing these days, reminding people  that autopilot is a driver-assist featurenot a driver automation feature. For instance, to  enable the automatic steering feature on a Tesla, drivers first have to click through a warning that appears on their car’s screens.

    61. We can conclude from the passage that          .

    A.Tesla accidents take place frequently

    B.Tesla drivers need to be well trained

    C. Tesla victims are fully compensated

    D. Tesla market keeps shrinking steadily

    62.The underlined  phrase "take over” in  Paragraph 5 means “    ”.

    A.cooperate with another driver    B.stick to driving on your   own

    C.take the place of another driver  D. switch to driving    for yourself

    63. According to the passager a car with Level 4 autoniation       .

    A. can run within a lane without bumping into other cars

    B. might be in some potential danger on a busy highway

    C. is completely con I rolled by some device while running

    D. requires its driver to keep his hands on the steering wheel

    64.The passage mainly tries to convince us that     .

    A.all drivers should park properly for  everyone's safety

    B.the involved drivers are responsible  for the accidents

    C.Tesla salespeople haven't done their job well enough

    D. Tesla must try to find ways to overcome its  drawback

    Being able to count at least ten people as friends makes us happy, but those with five or fewer are likely to be miserable, researchers say.      

    Their study of hundreds of men and women also found that people who feel satisfied with their lives always have lots of close friends and regularly make new ones. While it is not clear whether our friends make us happy or we make friends because we are happy, the researchers say it is clear that we should maintain our friendships. Psychologist Richard Tunney said, “Whatever the reason is, actively working on friendships in the same way as to maintain a marriage is a prerequisite(必备条件) to happiness. ”Dr. Tunney, of Nottingham University, quizzed(询问) more than 1,700 people about their satisfaction with their lives and the state of their friendships. Those with five friends or fewer had just a 40 percent chance of being happy. In other words, they were more likely to be unhappy than happy. Ten was the first number at which people were more likely to be happy than unhappy. The happiest people were those with dozens of friends, according to the study, which was carried out for the National Lottery(彩票).

       For women, this meant having 33 friends; for men, the number was 49. Dr. Tunney said, “People who were extremely satisfied with their lives had twice the number of friends of people who were extremely dissatisfied.” Women tended to have fewer friends than men but formed tighter relationships. Interestingly, the study found that childhood friends are no more likely to make us happy than people we become close to later in life. Lottery winners, however, have a different opinion on life. They are always happier than others despite spending their time with a small circle of old friends. This could be because they trust people they’ve known for a long time.

    32. What’s the best title for this passage?

    A. The Secret to Happiness Is to Make New Friends

    B. Having at Least 10 Good Friends Makes People Happy

    C. Why Most People Like to Make Friends Regularly

    D. Men’s and Women’s Friends Are Different

    33. Which of the following opinions may Richard Tunney NOT agree with?

    A. People with few friends are sure to be unhappy.

    B. Our friends can make us happy.

    C. Happiness may come from a good marriage life.

    D. We may become happier if we have more friends. 

    34. According to the passage, lottery winners ________.

    A. enjoy making new friends                 

    B. make new friends easily

    C. like staying with old friends                

    D. have no time to make friends

    35. We can conclude from the passage that ________.

    A. it’s enough for one person to have ten friends

    B. unhappy people must have few friends

    C. childhood friends make people happier than adulthood ones

    D. friendships play a major role in people’s life

       Have you ever run into a careless cell phone user on the street? Perhaps they were busy talking, testing or checking updates on WeChat without looking at what was going on around them. As the number of this new “species” of human has kept rising, they have been given a new name — phubbers (低头族).

        Recently, a cartoon created by students from China Central Academy of Fine Arts put this group of people under the spotlight. In the short film, phubbers with various social identities bury themselves in their phones. A doctor plays with his cell phone while letting his patient die, a pretty woman takes selfie(自拍照) in front of a car accident site and a father loses his child without knowing about it while using his mobile phone. A chain of similar events eventually leads to the destruction of the world.

         Although the ending sounds overstated, the damage phubbing can bring is real. Your health is the first to bear the effect and result of it. “Constantly bending your head to check your cell phone could damage your neck,” Guangming Daily quoted doctors as saying. “The neck is like a rope that breaks after long-term stretching.” Also, staring at cell phones for long periods of time will damage your eyesight gradually, according to the report.

         But that’s not all. Being a phubber could also damage your social skills and drive you away from your friends and family. At reunions with family or friends, many people tend to stick to their cell phones while others are chatting happily with each other and this creates a strange atmosphere, Qilu Evening News reported.

         It can also cost you your life. There have been lots of reports on phubbers who fell to their death, suffered accidents, and were robbed of their cell phones in broad daylight.

    28. For what purpose does the author give the example of a cartoon in Para. 2 ?

    A. To inform people of the bad effects of phubbing.

        B. To advertise the cartoon made by students.

        C. To indicate the world will finally be destroyed by phubbers.

        D. To warn doctors against using cell phones while treating patients.

    29. Which of the following is NOT a risk a phubber may have?

        A. His social skills could be affected. 

        B. His neck and eyesight will be gradually harmed.

        C. He will cause the destruction of the world.

        D. He might get separated from his friends and family.

    30. Which of the following may be the author’s attitude towards phubbing?

        A. Supportive.       B. Opposed.       C. Optimistic.         D. Objective.

    31. What may the passage talk about next?

        A. Advice on how to use a cell phone.                   B. People addicted to phubbing.

        C. Measures to reduce the risks of phubbing.         D. Consequences of phubbing.

    China dropped its decades-long, one-child policy last year to allow each family to have two children. This change has put 270 million married women of childbearing age in the position of choosing between family and work. The employers also face big challenges as more female workers will have two maternity leaves(产假)for a total of seven to eight months.

    In a survey published by classified advertising website Ganji.com, career women who might be considering having a second child were asked what kinds of pressure they might expect. More than 76 percent of the women who were questioned mentioned concerns about the financial burden of raising two children, while more than 71 percent said it would be difficult to balance career and family. In addition, nearly 56 percent said that having a second child would definitely have a negative effect on their career.

    Another survey conducted by Chongqing-based human resources webstie job.cq.qq.com found that over 70 percent of job seekers believe that having a second child would make females less popular in the job market, although two-thirds of the employers said the policy will make no difference in their employment of staff.

    Feng Lijuan, s senior expert on human resources at 51 job.com, a leading Chinese job finding platform, said she would not say “there is prejudice against career women.” Feng said Chinese women shoulder more family responsibility. “It is not only about maternity leave; a female employee might only fully get back to work after three to five yeas after having her first child.”

    Wang Yixin, a senior employment adviser, said the positive side is that more companies are trying to attract more talents by providing support to career women. “Different from before, it is not only employers choosing employees. Many talents, including professional career women, also choose employers.” said Wang. “According to our survey, many large companies are very open to their employees’ choice of having a second child.”

    28. Women employees take longer time to concentrate on work after childbirth because __________.

       A. there is more prejudice against career women

       B. they have longer maternity leaves to enjoy

       C. they shoulder more family responsibility

       C. having a second child makes them less popular

    29. What are women concerned about when having two children in the first survey?

       ①Financial burden of raising two children

       ②Fewer opportunities to get a pay rise

       ③Negative effects on their career

       ④Difficulty in balancing career and family

       A. ①②③                B.②③④               C. ①②④           D.①③④

    30. Which of the following shows the structure of the whole text?

    (P: Paragraph)

    31. Which is the best title for the next?

       A. Disadvantages of Raising Two Children           B. Responsibilities of Career Women

    Housework is a frequent source of disputes (争论) between lazy husbands and their hard-working wives, but women have been warned not to expect men to pull their weight any time soon.

    A study from Oxford University has found that men are unlikely to be doing an equal share of housework before 2050. Mothers, the researchers warned, will continue to shoulder the burden of childcare and housework for the next four decades, largely because housework such as cleaning and cooking is still regarded as womens work.

    The gap between the amount of time men and women spend on housework has narrowed slowly over the past 40 years. But it will take another four decades before true housework equality (平等) is achieved, the study concluded.The research found that in the Nordic countries, the burden of housework is shared more equally between men and women. In the UK, women spend an average of four hours and forty minutes each day on housework, compared with two hours and twenty-eight minutes for men. This is an improvement from the 1960s, when British women typically spent six hours a day on housework, while men spent just 90 minutes every day.

    But progress towards housework equality appears to be slowing in some countries. Dr Oriel Sullivan, a research reader from Oxfords Department of Sociology, said, weve looked at what is affecting the equality in the home, and we have found that certain tasks seem to be given according to whether they are viewed as mens work or womens work.

    Dr Sullivan said cultural attitudes taught at school may be responsible for the views of housework. At school it is much easier for a girl to be a tomboy, but it is much more difficult for a boy to enjoy baking and dancing, she said.
    28.The underlined part
    pull their weight in Paragraph 1 probably refers to __________.
           A.lose weight               B.be lazy
           C.earn money               D.do equal housework
    29.Women will continue to do more housework before 2050 mainly because _________.
           A.men are too busy to help
           B.they would like to do so
           C.they can do better in housework
           D.housework will still be considered as women
    s work
    30.From Paragraph 4 we know that in the UK ___________.
           A.men now spend just 90 minutes a day on housework on average
           B.women now are too busy with their work to do housework
           C.women now spend less time on housework than before
           D.housework is shared equally between men and women
    31.In Dr Sullivan
    s opinion, what is to blame for the housework inequality?
           A.Cultural attitudes towards housework.
           B.Policies made by the government.
           C.The time spent on work.
           D.The type of housework.

    Chinas new term, tuhao, may be in next years Oxford EnglishDictionary. The word caught the attention of the dictionary's editing team after BBCs recent program on influential Chinese words. If its influence continues, it is very likely to appear on our updated list of words, said Julie Kleeman, project manager with the editing team.

    In Chinese tu means uncouth (笨拙的) and hao means rich. It has traditionally been referred to rich people who throw their weight around in Chinas countryside. The word became more popular in September with the launch of Apples new gold-colored iPhone, which is loved by Chinas rich people. The color became known as tuhao gold. The word is now also used by the online community to refer to people who have the cash but lack the class to go with it. Kleeman also mentioned two other Chinese words dama and hukou which may also make it into the dictionary.

    People can have an intuitive (直观的) grasp of the meanings if they see pinyin, Kleeman said, adding that people avoid using an English word to keep the original meaning.

    We have nearly 120 Chinese-linked words now in Oxford English Dictionary, she said. Some of them are: Guanxi, which means connection; Taikonaut, a mix of taikong, meaning outer space, and astronaut.

    The new words will be first uploaded on the official websitebefore the dictionaries arrive. The online version is also renewed every three months. It at least broke our old rules. It used to take 10 years to include a new word but now we keep the pace with the time, according to a statement from ex-chief-editor John Simpson.

    29. Which of the following statements is true according to the text?

    A. Dama and hukou have made it into Oxford English dictionary.

    B. Some influential Chinese words appeared on one of BBCs recent programs.

    C. tuhao refers to people who have both the cash and the class.

    D. John Simpson thinks that it is not good to break old rules.

    30. What does the underlined part in paragraph 2 mean?

    A  Go on a diet.             B. Get ready to help others.

    C. Give orders to others.     D. Put on weight.

    31. Tuhao becomes more popular in September partly because ______.

    A. it is very likely to appear in Oxford English Dictionary

    B. Apple launched a new gold-colored iPhone

    C. people use Chinese pinyin to keep the original meaning

    D. it is often used by the online community

    32. The main idea of the text is that ______.

    A. Oxford English Dictionary Includes new words faster than before

      B. sometimes pinyin makes Chinese words better understood

    C. tuhao has a new meaning at the present time

    D. tuhao may end up in Oxford English Dictionary

    After a terrible electrical accident, which caused him to become both blind and deaf, the whole world became completely dark and quiet for Robert Edwards for almost ten years. The loss of sight and hearing threw him into such sadness that he tried a few times to put an end to his life. His family, especially his wife, did their best to look after and comfort him and finally he regained the will to live.

    One hot summer afternoon, he was taking a walk with a stick near his house when a thunderstorm started all at once. He stood under a large tree to avoid getting wet, but he was struck by the lightning. Witnesses thought he was dead but he woke up some 20 minutes later lying face down in muddy water at the base of the tree. He was shaking badly, but when he opened his eyes, he could hardly believe what he saw: a plough and a wall. When Mrs. Edwards came running up to him, shouting to their neighbors to call for help, he could see her and hear her voice for the first time in nearly ten years.

    The news of Robert regaining his sight and hearing quickly spread and many doctors came to examine him. Most of them said that he regained his sight and hearing from the shock he got from the lightning. However, none of them could give a real answer as to why this should have happened. The only reasonable explanation given by one doctor was that, since Robert lost his sight and hearing as a result of a sudden shock, perhaps, the only way for him to regain them was by another sudden shock.

    24. The reason for Robert’s attempts to kill himself was that ___________..

    A. a terrible traffic accident happened to him          

    B. he had to live in a dark and silent world

    C. he was struck by the lightning once more           

    D. nobody in the world cared about him

    25. What was Robert doing when he was struck by the lightning?

    A. Sheltering from the rain under a tree.       

    B. Driving a car.

    C. Taking a walk with his wife.                

    D. Lying on the ground.

    26. Which of the following sentences is NOT true according to the passage?

    A. Robert had been deaf and blind for nearly ten years.

    B. Robert hid himself under the tree for 20 minutes.

    C. Robert could hear his wife’s shouting for help when he woke up.

    D. The family’s love helped Robert regain confidence to live.

    27. We can infer from the text that ___________.

    A. there was no exact explanation for Robert’s recovery

    B. many doctors came because Robert was badly injured

    C. Robert’s wife sent for doctors immediately after the shock

    D. a sudden injury in the head led to Robert’s recovery

    You never played the video dance game? Now such games are used to help lose weight!

           Like many other teenage boys, Jones loves sports. But at 5 feet, 175 pounds, he found his weight in trouble. His doctor wanted him to lose 50 pounds so that he may be a good football game player by the end of the summer.

           Jones chose the popular Dance Revolution video game at home to increase his activity. He had lost about 10 pounds by changing his diet. Now, after two weeks’ playing the game, he has lost another 10!

           A health study is being done by an insurance company. The company hopes that the game will lead to better health and lower costs. “Obesity claims (肥胖索赔) last year cost us $ 77 million. We have to cut those costs,” said a member of the insurance group. The company provides a game console (游戏主机), a dance mat and software for the six-month, $ 60,000 study.

           The study is more than a commercial thing of an insurance company. It is widely supported by physical education and health professionals.

           In West Virginia, 43% of the nearly 6,000 children examined for heart disease risk were considered over-weighted; more than 25% were too fat. “We are in a crisis of childhood obesity not only in West Virginia but in America,” said a researcher.

           Researchers are now looking at the potential for improving effects by using the game. A teacher in West Virginia has been using the video games in her classes since last fall. She reported that the game does improve heart health as well as eye-hand coordination (协调能力), and her students take the video game as a great alternative to jumping rope or ball games.

           The US Education Department is putting the game in 20 schools to control childhood obesity. Well, are you going to try such to dance away your extra weight?

    56. The underlined part is trying to tell us _____.

    A. the study involves many insurance companies

    B. the study is only an insurance company’s business

    C. the study is less important than the insurance company’s money

    D. it’s not only the insurance company that is concerned about the study

    57. It can be inferred that _____.

    A. the government thinks highly of the dance game

    B. in West Virginia, more than 25 % of the adults were too fat

    C. a teacher is a failure in using the video game in her classes

    D. the US Education Department isn’t interested in the game

    58. The most suitable title of the passage is _____.

    A. Dance Away Your Weight     B. Play the Video Dance Game   

    C. Solve the Problem of Obesity  D. Cut the Cost of Obesity Claims
