My grandma had told me my aunt’s money problems and always feels so bad for her . My aunt , Jenney Brown , is in her early thirties and she has three little children, along with serious heart problems.Her hunsband died of cancer a few years ago and she has lost her job recently. She has a lot of fanancial difficulty. She told me some things in her life: She couldn’t get milk for her little boy since it is too expensive. She was so happy to find $2 jeans(工装裤) at a shop even though it couldn’t really fit her, she was worried about the long drive to my grandparants’house, beacause she had no food for the next day and no money to buy gas on the way as she had spend her last $20. I had saved some money . After hearing about her troubles, I went downstairs and put a note of $50 in the front pocket of the handbag in secret. I didn’t want to give her money directly, because I knew it would embarrass （使难堪） her and that she would refuse it since I’m a kid and don’t have a job. However, I’m very happy with what I did. Although I do not know whether she can find who has given her the money, I know it is of use to her. She is raising a family and has large medical needs! I hope more people know how bad my aunt’s situation really is so that she get more help . 21.What has happened to Jenney according to the passage ? A. Her hunsband is suffering from cancer. B. Her hunsband has serious heart problems . C. She has to raise three little children by herself . 20. What did the picture on the right side of the card describe?

What if the rain forests and all of the plants and colorful animals suddenly did not exist(存在)? In 1962, Gaylord Nelson decided something needed to be done to protect the environment. The work that he began led to what we now know as Earth Day, which is celebrated each year around the world. Nelson realized very few people were concerned(关注) about environmental problems. He then went to Washington, D.C., where he hoped to persuade President John F. Kennedy to take a stand on environmental problems. It wasn’t long before President Kennedy agreed that action should be taken. The President set out on a five-day, eleven-state environmental protection tour in September 1963. Although Kennedy’s tour was not a success, Nelson was not ready to give up. Nelson continued to speak to audiences across 25 states about the importance of the environment. Although his point of view began to be accepted among most people, politicians were still not listening. It was September of 1969, at a meeting in Seattle, when Nelson announced that he would hold a nationwide demonstration(游行) for environmental protection the next spring. On April 22, 1970, more than 20 million Americans took part in Nelson’s demonstration. It made people sit up and pay attention to environmental problems. One year later, that day was set up as an official international holiday by the UN. Each year on Earth Day, people plant trees, clean up rubbish, and do other things to care for the environment. 24. What is the main idea of the second paragraph? A．Nelson did everything to protect the environment. B．Nelson tried to win the support of the government. C．President Kennedy made an unsuccessful conservation tour.
D．Nelson prepared for the nationwide demonstration. 25．When did Earth Day become an official international holiday? A．In 1963. B．In 1969. C．In 1970. D．In 1971.

President Kennedy set out on a conservation tour. d. More than 20 million people joined in Nelson’s demonstration. A．c,a,d,b B．a,c,d,b C．c,d,b,a D．b,c,a,d
27．The best title for the passage could be “________”. A．Gaylord Nelson’s life C．Demonstration on April 22, 1970 B．A great environmentalist D．History of Earth Day C To me, life without music would not be exciting. I realize that this is not true for everybody. Many people get along quite well without going to the concert, and listening to the record. But music plays an important part in everyone's life, whether he realizes it or not. Try to imagine, for example, what films or TV plays would be like without music. Would the feelings, the moving plot, and the greatest interests, be so exciting or dramatic? I'm not sure about it. Now, we have been speaking of music in its more common meaning----the kind of music we hear in the concert hall. But if we look at some parts of music more closely, we discover them in our everyday life， too----in the rhythm of the sea, the melody of a bird in the woods and so on. So music surely has meaning for everyone, in some way or other. And, of course, it has special meaning for those who have spent all their lives working on playing or writing music. It is well said, “Through music a child enters into a world of beauty, expresses himself from his heart, feels the joy of doing things alone, learns to take care of others, develops his mind and makes his body strong.” 28. What dose the writer say more about in the text? A. Life full of music. B. Life without music. C. The importance of music.
D. The development of music. 29. From the text, we learn that many people________. A. don't realize the importance of music B. get along quite well without music C. go to the concert instead of enjoying music D. think music would be less exciting than films 30. What does the underlined word “melody” mean in the text? A. flying B. looking C. singing D. living
31. From the last paragraph, we learn that music________. A. is very important, especially for children B. is very necessary for our everyday life C. can make our life exciting and dramatic D. can enter into another beautiful world D What is courage? It is the choice to do what we think we should do. It is the choice to ignore the worries and fears. It is the choice to do right, to realize our dreams, to be successful people and to lead the way for others. Courage can change lives. The day you begin to stare down your fears and worries, and instead act bravely, your life will change. You will be set free to fly high. You will finish things you once only dreamed of. You will realize that you fears are just paper tigers. You will begin to fullfill your dreams. You will also change the lives of others. Simply put, courageous people pull others along with them. Everybody benefits from courageous people. I have a friend whom I admire greatly. A few year ago he decided to leave a well-paid career and run after his dream. All difficulties then appeared. The day he left his company, he found out that his wife had cancer. He went into a great deal of debt. But he never lost heart. He managed to raise some money and acted courageously, putting his name and reputation(名声) on the line. He finally made it. A year later, he had a company with over fifty employees. Those employees got benefits from his courage and his wife, who beat cancer and was acting bravely with him! How to be courageous? Be clear about your dream. Do not worry. Worry is just thinking about all the bad possibilities. Courage is just thinking about all the great possiblities and then acting upon them! Do your homework. It helps you get the facts. It helps because you can make an informed decision. Then act. No action, no success. Yes, courage does change lives, and the key lies in your action. 32. In the writer’s opinion, courage is the choice to . A. do what others think we should do
B. ignore our dreams C. be a successful businessman D. to lead the way for others 33. The underlined phrases “stare down”(paragraph 2) probably means “ A. overcome by staring B. fell or realize C. look for a long time D. give in to or accept 34. The writer uses the case of his friend to . A. prove anyone can succeed if he runs after his dream B. prove people who have courage can beat cancer C. tell readers how his friend succeeded by having courage D. show doing own business is better than working for others 35. What can we do to be courageous？ A. Do not dare to have many dreams. B. Think about the great possibilities instead of bad possibilities. C. Finish all of your homework that teachers give you. D. Make a quick decision and then insist on it.
