    Want to try something new for your next trip? Push your family out of your comfortable home with these ideas for an adventure you can have together.

       New Zealand

       New Zealand's natural beauty and excellent fame for outdoor activities make it a popular tourist area for families. Finding a camper car to explore the country not only saves you money but also lets you travel freely on the open road and enjoy the fun of outdoor life without having to put a tent up each night.

       South Africa

       Seeing animals in the wild gets pretty high scores on the adventure for most people. South Africa's Kruger National Park is loved by children because they like watching animals at a small distance travelling round the southern part of the park. There are also family-friendly hotels with pools when everyone needs to cool off.

       Southwestern Australia

       Do your kids have their heads in the clouds? Treat them to a 600m-long walk in the Valley of the Giants. Or do they prefer to go underground? Check out the attractive caves in the Margaret River region. Go whale watching in Geographe Bay. Bike riding? Tree climbing? You've guessed it.

       Japan

       For robot-loving, game-playing, tech-happy teens, a trip to Japan is a dream that comes true. You can visit ancient temples and palaces. Pay a visit to one of the national park or island beaches when everyone needs to breathe out. Before you know it, you've got a trip to please even the most popular adventurers in your family.
    21. What does the text mainly introduce?
    A. The most popular adventure activities.
    B. Tourist places for family adventures.
    C. The culture of western countries.
    D. Asian countries most people like.


    22. If interested in high technology, your family should make a trip to ________.
    A. Southwestern Australia          B. New Zealand
    C. South Africa                        D. Japan


    23. What can you learn from the text?
    A. Children can take a walk in the valley in Southwestern Australia.
    B. Tourists think it is difficult to find camper cars to explore New Zealand.
    C. Tourists will have to put up a tent each night in New Zealand.
    D. Children can't visit ancient temples and palaces in Japan.

    Baby girls make their way to dolls as soon as they can crawl, while boys will head for the toy cars, a study has shown. The findings, the first to show consistent differences in very young babies, suggest there is a biological basis to their preferences
      Psychologists Dr Brenda Todd from City University London carried out an experiment involving 90 babies aged nine months to 36months. They were allowed to choose from seven toys. Some were typically boys' toys---a car, a digger, a ball and a blue teddy. The rest were girls' toys: a pink teddy, a doll and a cooking set. They were placed a meter away from the toys, and could pick whichever toy they liked. Their choice and the amount of time they spent playing with each toy were recorded

      Of the youngest children(nine to 14months), girls spent much longer playing with the doll than boys, and boys spent much more time with the car and ball than the girls did. Among the two-and three-year-olds, girls spent 50percent of the time playing with the doll while only two boys briefly touched it. The boys spent almost 90percent of their time playing with cars
    which the girls barely touched. There was no link between the parents' view on which toys were more appropriate for boys or girls, and the children's choice
      Dr Brenda Todd said:"Children of this age are already exposed to much socialization
    Boys may be given toys that go while girls get toys they can care for, which may help shape their preference. But these findings agree with the former idea that children show natural interests in particular kinds of toys. There could be a biological basis for their choices. Males through evolution have been adapted to prefer moving objects, probably through hunting instincts, while girls prefer warmer colors such as pink, the color of a newborn baby. "
    24..Baby boys and girls have different toy preferences probably because ______
    A. baby boys are much more active
    B. baby girls like bright colors more
    C. there may be a biological difference
    D. parents have an effect on their views


    25..Both baby boys and baby girls like to play with ______ according to the study

    A. a ball        B. a teddy       C. a car         D. a doll


    26.What can we infer from Paragraph 3

    A. Nine-month-old baby boys don't play with dolls at all

    B. Two-year-old baby girls sometimes play with cars and balls

    C. Parents should teach their babies to share each other's toys

    D. The older the babies are, the more obvious their preference is

     
    27. What conclusion did Dr. Brenda Todd draw from the results of the study?
    A. Adults bring about babies' preference on purpose

    B. Babies' preference isn't affected by social surroundings

    C. Baby boys preferring to moving toys will be good at hunting

    D. Baby girls preferring warmer colors will be warm-hearted

    It was a late Wednesday night when the dreading phone call reached our home. I sat up, so I could hear the phone call better. To my surprise, I heard my mom burst into tears. "Get the carDean! Andrea has been in a car accident. "
      We ran every stop sign on the way to the hospital and our tires screeched around every corner. We got to the hospital, but were not allowed to see Andrea. The next morning, after wearing masks, we were allowed to go to the ICU to see Andrea. Well, the least I could say was that everything was injured in her body and she lost all of her memories. It was a fatal accident.
      Over the next two months, I lived more at the hospital than I did at my house. I watched as Andrea worked so hard to gain back everyday motor skills. She never once complained or pitied herself; her determined spirit was shining through. After two weeks in the ICU and two months of the regular hospital treatment, Andrea was able to come home. She missed several months of school, so it was hard for her to catch up. Andrea had tasks to accomplish, and no matter how hard it was, she stuck with them until the job was done. Though busy with dealing with pain and therapy, she always found time to love and play with me. 
      I'll never forget the impact that this incident made on my life. I admire her strong-willed personality and her determined spirit. Today she is perfectly normal
    despite the scars and the pins holding her leg in place. I couldn't ask for a better sister, hero, or best friend
    28.The writer sat up to hear the call because he ______
    A. sensed that something terrible had happened

    B. expected to get the phone call

    C. wanted to scold the people who phoned so late

    D. was not sure whether the telephone concerned him

     
    29.From the underlined sentence in the second paragraph
    we can infer that ______
    A. the family did not obey the traffic rules

    B. the writer's father was not good at driving

    C. the whole family were too anxious to see Andrea

    D. their house was very far from the hospital


    30. During the treatment, Andrea ______
    A. had to give up all her studies
    B. stopped playing with the writer

    C. refused to be accompanied

    D. showed unbelievable strength

     
    31.What would be the best title for the passage

    A. A Miracle Happening to my sister
    B. My Sister----the Hero in My Life
    C. An Accident Which Changed My Sister
    D. An Incident Which Influenced Me Much

       Do you ever wish for a little more time to do everything you need to doWell, on July 1 you'll be getting it--but only one more second
      On July 1 at exactly 7:59:59 a.m. Beijing time (or on June 30 at 23:59:59 UTC
    Coordinated Universal Time), the world's atomic clocks will pause for a single second, or, more precisely, change to the unusual time of 7:59:60according to theverge.com. The addition of a leap second(闰秒), announced by the Paris Observatoryis to keep our clocks in the time with the slowing of Earth's rotation and astronomical time as measured by the sun
      Just one extra second could cause big problems and affect the way computers and websites work, however. When the last leap second was added back in 2012
    more than a few websites had some trouble. As reported by Phys.org, popular sites like the community websites Reddit crashed when the leap second was added. For Reddit, the problem was eventually found to be with a Linux system that got confused when it checked the network time and found an extra second
      Speaking to Wired about the problem back in 2012
    Linux creator Linus Torvalds commented:"Almost every time we have a leap second, we find somethingIt's really annoying, because it's code that is almost never usedand thus not tested by users under their normal conditions."
      Companies have had to think of their own solutions, and Google's "leap smear" may be the best-known example. As company engineer Christopher Pascoe explains in a blog post, companies usually try to fix the problem by turning back the clocks by one second at the end of the day so that they play that second again. However
    Pascoe believes this creates problems. He asked:"What happensDoes e-mail that comes in during that second get stored correctly"
      Google has a solution
    Cut the extra second into milliseconds and then put these tiny amounts of time into the system throughout the day"This means that when it became time to add an extra second at midnight"says Pascoe"Our clocks have already taken into account over the course of the day."
      For many companies without Google's money, however, the leap second will likely still cause some crashes. Don't worry, though-at least it won't last long!
    32.Why do we need to add a leap second

    A. The world's atomic clocks are set to do so

    B. To keep in time with the world's computers

    C. To keep atomic clocks in time with the slowing of Earth's rotation

    D. To record the changes to astronomical time

     
    33.What happened to the website Reddit when the leap second was added in 2012

    A. It crashed because of a virus attack

    B. Its network time added two extra seconds

    C. All of the code in its Linux system went wrong

    D. One of its software systems got confused and the site broke down


    34.What does the underlined word "something" refer to in the5th paragraph

    A. The code not working properly
     B. The extra second
    C. The problem
                             D. Normal conditions


    35.How do companies usually deal with the problem of the extra second

    A. By shutting down computers at the end of the day

    B. By stopping receiving emails that come in during that second

    C. By turning the clocks back by one second at the end of the day

    D. By cutting the extra second into milliseconds throughout the day
