    Air travel is such an everyday experience these days that we are not surprised when we read about a politician having talks with the Japanese Prime Minister one day, attending a meeting in Australia the following morning and having to be off at midday to sign a trade agreement in Hong Kong. But frequent long-distance flying can be so tiring that the traveler begins to feel his brain is in one country, his digestion(消化) in another and his powers of concentration nowhere – in short, he hardly knows where he is.

     Air travel is so quick nowadays that we can leave London after breakfast and be in New York in eight hours, yet what really disturbs us most is that when we arrive it is lunch time while we have already had lunch on the plane and are expecting dinner.

    Doctors say that air travelers are in no condition to work after crossing a number of time zones. Airline pilots, however, often live by their own watches.

    24. After a long air travel, a traveler _______.

       A. finds himself in a different world      B. finds his brain apart from his body 

    C. has little sense about where he is

    D. finds himself in Hong Kong the following morning   

    25. Which of the following is right according to the passage?

       A. A traveler from London to New York needs lunch during his travel.   

    B. A traveler from London to New York doesn’t need any lunch on the plane. 

    C. The lunch hour in New York is eight hours later than that in London.  

    D. In fact, the distance from London to New York is only four hours’ trip by air.

    26. Which one of the following statements has the same meaning with the sentence “Airline pilots often live by their own watches.” ______?

       A. They don’t trust others’ watches.       B. They often change their watches.

       C. They make a living by their own watches.

    D. They live according to the time by their watches, whatever the local time is.

    27. Doctors suggest air travelers_______.

       A. should rest in a place with good condition

       B. should work in good condition since they just finish a long journey

       C. should rest after a long journey

       D. give up long journey since it makes them tired

    You are a new manager at the American branch of your German firm in Chicago. With a few minutes to spare between meetings, you go to get a quick cup of coffee.

      “Hey, David, how are you?” one of the senior partners at the firm asks you.

      “Good, thank you, Dr. Greer,” you reply. You’ve really been wanting to make a connection with the senior leadership at the firm, and this seems like a great opportunity. But as you start to think of something to say, your American colleague breaks in to steal your spotlight.

       “So Arnold”, your colleague says to your boss, in such a casual manner that it makes your German soul cringe(畏缩), “So what’s your Super bowl prediction? I mean, you’re a Niners fan, right?”

       The conversation moves on, and you walk silently back to your desk with your coffee. You know how important small talk is in the U.S., and you feel jealous of people who can do it well.

       There’s nothing small about the role that small talk plays in American professional culture. People from other countries are often surprised at how important small talk is in the U.S. and how naturally and comfortably people seem to do it ------ with peers, men, women, and even with superiors. You can be the most technically skilled worker in the world, but your ability to progress in your job in the United States is highly dependent on your ability to build and maintain positive relationships with people at work. And guess what skill is critical for building and maintaining these relationships? Small talk.

       What can you do if you are from another culture and want to learn to use small talk in the U.S. to build relationships and establish trust? Work hard to hone(磨练) your own version of American-style small talk. Watch how others do it. You don’t have to imitate what they do; in fact, that would likely backfire because people would see you as inauthentic. But if you can develop your own personal version, that can go a long way toward making you feel comfortable and competence

    28. The author introduces the topic of the passage by______.

       A. offering a plot                                           B. describing an interesting scene

       C. making comparisons                               D. telling a small joke

    29.What do we know about German people?

       AThey don’t make so much small talk

       BThey hate making small talk

       CThey usually make small talk in work breaks

       DThey are good at making small talk too

    30.What makes people from other countries surprised in American professional culture?

       A American workers’ ability to make progress

       BAmerican workers’ attitude towards superiors

       CThe special meaning of small talk

       DThe role small talk plays in work settings

    31. What does “backfire” underlined in the last paragraph mean?

       Ahave a warm atmosphere                      Bhave the opposite effect

       Chave a good result                            Dhave a hard time

           Scientists are debating how to limit their newly-discovered power to change genetic structure. Scientists already modify the genes of farm animals and agricultural plants to make them more productive or stronger. But now they can also change genes in wild animals and plants. These genes would continue into later generations. For example, it may be possible for scientists to remove from existence the kind of mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus. They might also be able to permanently remove species of plants and animals that are destructive to other species.

           In a report published last week, the U.S.National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NAS) said it supports continued research on this kind of gene control. But it warned that it is not possible to know what will happen when these changed plants and animals are released into the wild.

           Sixteen biologists, ethicists(伦理学家) and policymakers are on an NAS committee that is examining the issue. They say that there is value to the new technology. But, they say, there is not enough evidence to support the release of modified organisms (生物体) from the laboratory into nature.

           Many people would support stopping mosquitoes and rats from carrying diseases. But scientists say we must understand the possible scientific, ethical, legal and social results of such action before we decide whether to take it. Gene modification is spread through reproduction(繁殖).

           Changed genes will continue to spread as long as an animal or plant continues to reproduce. They cannot be limited to a farm or kept within a country’s borders. Scientists are wondering what may happen if a modified organism mates with another species. They are not yet sure how the modified genes would affect the other species. It is possible that those genes could harm those creatures or even lead to their disappearance from our planet.

    32.What possible advantage does gene control in wild animals and plants have?

        A. Making all the species more productive and stronger.

        B. Changing the Zika virus permanently.

           C. Removing the destructive species forever.

           D. Having changed genes in their next generations.

    33Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?

           A. Scientists are not sure what exact results gene modification leads to.

           B. Scientists won’t modify any genes before they make the final decision.

           C. Gene modification has benefited some farm animals and agricultural plants.

           D. Scientists have not applied gene modification to wild animals and plants in case of possible danger.

    34. What can be the best title for the passage?

           A. Stop research on gene control

           B. Power and danger of gene control

           C. How to change genetic structure

           D. Advantages of gene control in wild animals and plants

    35. As for genetically changed wild animals and plants , what are scientists worried about?

    A. Their genes may spread to later generations.

    B. They may be more productive.

    C. They may cause damage to their living habitat.

    D. They may become weaker or die out.

    Restaurant chefs, home cooks, and foodies — people who love good food — often say that we eat with all of our senses.

    First, we use our sense of sight to appreciate how a meal is presented, either on a dinner plate or a dining table.   36   Additionally, with our sense of smell, we breathe in the mouth-watering smell rising up from the meal. Finally, we enjoy the food with our sense of taste.

    But does sound also affect our dinning experience? A new report from researchers at Brigham Young University said yes. Hearing is often called “the forgotten food sense,” says Ryan Elder, an assistant professor of marketing at Brigham Young University.   37   On the other hand, watching loud television or listening to loud music while eating can hide such noises. And this could lead to overeating.

    During the experiments, the test subjects wore headphones and listened to noise at either a high or low audio level.   38   The study found that subjects who listened to the higher volume noise ate more pretzels than those with the low audio levels.

    Elder says that when hiding the sounds of eating, like when you watch television or listen to loud music while eating, we take away the sense of hearing.   39   The researchers are calling this the “crunch effect”, which they admit may not seem like much at one meal. But over a week, a month, or a year, all that food can really add up. So hearing the sound of eating does reduce the amount of food you consume.

      40   Hearing the noises of your meal as you eat could also help you to be more mindful of the experience and perhaps help you to enjoy it more.

    A.     But besides not overeating, there is another benefit.

    B.     Our sense of touch can also be important when preparing or sharing food.

    C.     He notes that soft and sweet sound is thought to enhance the taste of food.

    D.     And this may cause you to eat more than you would normally.

    E.      In fact, beautiful food is healthier than food that doesn’t look appealing.

    F.      He says that if people notice the sound the food makes as they eat it, they might eat less .

    G.     Then researchers gave them a hard snack: pretzels
