I was walking down the road one day when my cell phone rang. A strange voice on the other end spoke to me, “Dad, please come back soon. I miss you so much!” I judged that it was a 1 number. A little while later, the call came once again, so I rudely 2 , “You’ve dialed the wrong number!” and then 3 .
During the following days, I got the same 4 now and then. But I didn’t care much about it.
Then one day she constantly called me even though I didn’t answer. Finally I answered the phone and heard a weak voice, “Dad, please come back. I miss you so much! Dad, I’m 5 so much pain! Mom said you were too busy to take 6 of me. But, dad, please kiss me again, OK?” The innocent ( 天真 ) 7 was difficult to refuse. I made a 8 kiss on the phone and heard the weak voice say, “Thank you... Dad, I am so... happy, so....happy…”
Shortly after this, I became 9 about who had been on the other end of my phone. So I called back, and a woman answered, “Sorry, sir. I am really sorry to have bothered you. My daughter has suffered from bone cancer 10 she was born. And her father... died in an 11 a short while ago. I dare not tell her this sad news. Poor baby. When she couldn’t bear the painful chemotherapy ( 化疗 ), she would cry for her dad, who had always 12 her. I really couldn’t bear it, so I gave her my phone number...”
“How is your daughter now?” I couldn’t 13 to ask.
“She’s 14 . You must have kissed her on the phone, because she passed away with a smile, tightly holding the cell phone...”
15 filled my eyes and I was so sad to hear that.

It is well-known that all the world is a stage and all the men and women are merely players. 1 , now one homeless dog in the Turkish city of Izmit seems determined to perform on that stage as well. It is surprising but heart-warming.

As Uzunsoy lay on the ground 6 a fall from a horse, the dog came up to him and 7 began to lick his face and neck. It took a few seconds for Uzunsoy to 8 what was happening. “I felt warmth on my face.

While the audience and cast members were obviously amused by the dog and didn’t mind the 12 , the dog was led offstage later. Uzunsoy continued his character and the 13 went on.

Why do most of us live our life always caring what people might say or think? Some of the decisions we make are just to please the outside world around us. I have always lived life pleasing the ever over-demanding society. This had a great effect on my search for authenticity ( 真实性 ). I only felt good enough when people paid attention to me. So I would frequently do things to catch people’s eye instead of placing emphasis on what really matters to me.
A recent experience changed my view. I had been looking for a tailor to mend some of my clothes. With the help of a few friends, I found one, who just so happened to go to the same gym as me. As we chatted, he shared his story and his use of drugs for muscle development with me. In his words, he weighed over 240 pounds and was the envy of a lot of people. So many people wanted to be like him and have a body like his, which made him use more drugs.
But within two years something happened. He began to have problems with his liver. The doctor advised him to stop using drugs and give up lifting heavy weights for a while. This was a hard decision because he had got so used to the attention from people. He didn’t want to give that up; who would? Right? That was it. He made me understand how he lived his life for people. He lost sight of what was best for him.
He told me not to live life thinking about too much what people think, feel, or say. Instead, live life with meaning. His story really has an effect on me. I have to look at my life to see what I do. I am not saying we shouldn’t take the advice of others into consideration, but we must work hard for continuous self-awareness ( 自我认识 ). If we can know what we’re doing and why we’re doing it, we can realize just how important that thing is to us.

C ． We should have a good understanding of ourselves.
D ． Nothing is more important than good health in our life.
Remote technologies will play an increasingly-vital role in driving the education industry, as the COVID-19 pandemic( 流行病 ) forced the world to go remote, according to an industry insider.
“Remote technology is continuing to empower ( 授权 ) online education, with large migrations online. With the continuous application of new technology methods such as big data and artificial intelligence, students’ learning outcomes have been significantly improved,” said Wang Yan, chief architecture officer at Zuoyebang( 作业帮 ).
“Technology and outcomes are two major challenges that companies face when they transform from offline to online. The education industry is facing the largest traffic challenge ever,” Wang said.
To upgrade the infrastructure( 基础设施 ), Zuoyebang has continued to upgrade its technology, changing from its original single cloud service to multiple cloud services and from mostly using third-party live broadcast systems to now relying on an independent system.
“For online classes, only live-streaming can achieve a real interacting( 交互式的 ) effect, which can get both students and teachers more involved. It is impossible to achieve such outcomes through recorded and broadcast lessons,” he added.
The Beijing-based company developed a complete set of live-streaming architecture based on the ZRTC agreement. It can fully support classes, including one-on-one tutoring and six-to-six small interactive classes. In the five weeks from February 3 to March 9 last year, Zuoyebang has helped 275 teachers bring 1,832 classes to more than 33 million primary and middle school students across the country.
1 ． Which technique is most beneficial to students who have online classes?

2 ． It can be inferred from the passage that ________.

D ． Zuoyebang has helped thousands of primary and middle school students to have online classes.
