    I’m still very much figuring out what I want to do with my life, but I can honestly say now that I feel very proud of where I am right now. I’ve written about the teachers in high school and college I had that made a big impact on me, but I haven’t mentioned the person that made the biggest difference.

    Growing up, Mom was always there for me. People think of Asian mothers as scary and demanding, but my mother was never like that. During the summers, we had some math and Chinese lessons every day before we could go outside and play, which may sound dull, but somehow Mom made it fun. She took our education very seriously and spent countless hours copying math problems into notebooks with colored pens. She made hundreds of index(索引) cards, each with a Chinese character on it, which we would rearrange to make sentences. I still smile when I open up my math notebooks and see those colorful pages of math problems-if I got them all right, I’d get a smiling face and “100%!” or “Next Einstein!” on the top with a sticker. If didn’t do so well, I’d get a “Pretty Good!”

    I was the only girl on the math Counts team in middle school. I came home one day from middle school and told her that some of the boys in my class made fun of me because I was doing better than them in math. She went to my teacher and told her that she didn’t want her daughter to feel like she couldn’t be good at math or to be teased because of it. I didn’t know this until recently my mom told me that she herself was the only female engineer where she started working, and gained the respect of her coworkers.

    24Who made the lasting and deepest influence on the author?

    AHer teachers in high school.      BHer mom.

    CHer teachers in college.          DHer friends in college.

    25When the author was young, her math and Chinese lessons made her feel     .

    Amore confused since mom wasn’t a teacher

    Bfun with Mom’s wonderful instructions

    Chopeless to keep up with other classmates

    Ddull without classmates to study together

    26Why did the author love learning from her mother?

    AShe liked to play word games with Mom at home.

    BShe knew Mom liked playing tricks on her.

    CMom drew many smiling faces for her.

    DMom always encouraged her whatever happened.

    27Why was the author made fun of when in Math Counts team in middle school?

    ABecause her mother wasn’t good at math.

    BBecause no other girls liked to learn math.

    CBecause her math was better than the boys.

    An idea that started in Seattle’s public library has spread throughout America and beyond. The concept is simple: help to build a sense of community in a city by getting everyone to read the same book at the same time.

    In addition to encouraging reading as a pursuit (追求) to be enjoyed by all, the program allows strangers to communicate by discussing the book on the bus, as well as promoting reading as an experience to be shared in families and schools. The idea came from Seattle librarian Nancy Pearl who launched the “If All of Seattle Read the Same Book” project in 1998. Her original program used author visits, study guides and book discussion groups to bring people together with a book, but the idea has since expanded to many other American cities, and even to Hong Kong.

    In Chicago, the mayor appeared on television to announce the choice of To Kill a Mockingbird as the first book in the “One Book, One Chicago” program. As a result, reading clubs and neighborhood groups sprang up around the city. Across the US, stories emerged of parents and children reading to each other at night and strangers chatting away on the bus about plot and character.

    The only problem arose in New York, where local readers could not decide on one book to represent the huge and diverse population. This may show that the idea works best in medium-sized cities or large towns, where a greater sense of unity (一致)can be achieved. Or it may show that New Yorkers rather missed the point, putting all their energy and passion into the choice of the book rather than discussion about a book itself.

    Ultimately, as Nancy points out, the level of success is not measured by how many people read a book, but by how many people are enriched by the process, or have enjoyed speaking to someone with whom they would not otherwise have shared a word.

    28. What is the purpose of the project launched by Nancy?

    A. To invite authors to guide readers.        B. To encourage people to read and share.

    C. To involve people in community service.   D. To promote the friendship between cities.

    29. Why was it difficult for New Yorkers to carry out the project?

    A. They had little interest in reading.

    B. They were too busy to read a book.

    C. They came from many different backgrounds.

    D. They lacked support from the local government.

    30. According to the passage, where would the project be more easily carried out?

    A. In large communities with little sense of unity.

    B. In large cities where libraries are far from home.

    C. In medium-sized cities with a diverse population.

    D. In large towns where agreement can be quickly reached.

    31. According to Nancy, the degree of success of the project is judged by  _________.

    A. the careful selection of a proper book

    B. the growing popularity of the writers

    C. the number of people who benefit from reading

    D. the number of books that each person reads.

      Children need "risky play", like climbing and jumping from a height, playing with knives, or playing near water or cliffs, says a study report on active outdoor play in the Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. It adds that children who do so improve their reaction time in detecting risk, increase their self-confidence and are less likely to takes risks related to sex and drugs as adolescents.

        The US study found that, while 86% of children between the ages of 7 and 11 went to school without an adult in the 1970s, this fell t0 25% in 2015. 81% of parents of 10-to-12-year-olds were worried about "stranger danger", yet researchers point out that the chances of abduction(诱拐) by a total stranger are one in a million. Serious risks from playgrounds (i.e. choked by equipment when parks used to have ropes) have largely been removed. A large New Zealand study of nearly 31,000 children reported no head injury from playgrounds in 2015. Broken bones, mostly in upper arm, do happen, but are rare - the US study reports an average of 3 injuries per 10,000 hours of play last year. "Parents have to have a balanced view of this. Their child at home is 500 times more likely to meet a stranger - the Internet actually has many cyber-bullies."

        Mark Tremblay, the author of the study report, believes that children won't develop adaptability without getting a little hurt and getting back up again. "The evidence suggests that children self-regulate in play in response to risks. An unmoving lifestyle might stop them dislocating shoulders, but leads to obesity and other diseases in later life. playing unsupervised outside leads to better self-regulation and psychological health. "

        There's even a term for overprotected kids: risk shortage disorder. Tremblay suggests parents train themselves by first letting their children go off on their own for 20 minutes (having made sure they know how to cross the road).

    32. Which of the following is probably a "risky play"?

       A. Playing in the neighborhood supervised.  B. Reading adventurous stories on the bus.

       C. Cycling fast down from the top of a lull.  D. Taking part in an online role-play game.

    33. From Mark Tremblay's report, we know that         

       A. most parents of kids between 10 and 12 worried too much.

       B. a quarter of children in the US now attend school alone.

       C. head injury is the primary cause for children to get hurt.

       D. only 3 in 10,000 US children broke their bones in 2015.

    34. Researchers believe that children need "risky play" because           

       A. parents will learn to balance their views towards safety and risk.

       B: a child playing alone is less likely to be taken away by a stranger.

       C. it saves children from diseases such as "risk shortage disorder".

       D. it will do much good for children both mentally and physically.

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

       A. Children Are Overprotected.      B. Risky Plays Are Necessary.

    C. Playgrounds Are Riskless.        D. Outdoor Activities Benefit Children.
