Everybody has had at least one experience from which he knows the meaning of life． This time, which took place several years ago, but seems as if it just happened． On an afternoon several years ago, my brother-in-law opened the bottom drawer of my sister's dress and picked out a beautiful skirt．"Jan bought this the first time we went to New York, at least 8 or 9 years ago．She never wore it．She was saving it for a special occasion．" he said．I guess this was the occasion: it was the funeral of my sister, after her unexpected death． He took the shirt and put it on bed, with the other clothes we were taking to the funeral．Then he closed the drawer and turned to me, "Don't ever save anything for a special occasion．Every day you're alive is a special occasion．" I'm thinking about his words, and they've changed the way I live my life． spending more time with I'm my family and friends and less time in committee meetings．Whenever possible, life should be a kind of experience to enjoy, not to suffer．"Someday" and "one of these days" are losing their importance on my vocabulary．If it's worth seeing or hearing or doing, I want to see and hear and do it now． Ever since that day, I have been trying very hard not to put off, hold hack or save anything that would add laughter and color to our lives． Every morning when I open my eyes． tell myself that every day, every I minute, every breath, truly is a gift．So cherish every day and find the true meaning of your life． 41．Why did Jan buy the beautiful skirt but didn't wear it?
A．She waited for a special occasion to wear it on． B．She wanted to keep it for someone else． C．She saved it till she grew up． D．She would give it to herself as a gift some day． 42．What does the underlined word "cherish" mean?
43．From his experience, the author learns that _______． A．everybody can have a happy life through efforts B．every day in our lives is worth cherishing C．enjoying ourselves is the most important thing in our lives D．everybody will have some things left to do after his death 44．What's the best title for this passage? A．What Is the Meaningful Life Like C． Every Day Is a Gift B The newspaper seller was a clean, neat man, of about forty with a rather serious, unsmiling face. He didn’t speak much to the customers or to his helpers, but when he did he spoke slowly and quietly, as if to himself. He believed in efficiency, not conversation. and this was how the office workers, rushing to catch their trains, preferred it. It had been a good day. Lunch-time had been warm and sunny, and many people had bought magazines to read outside with their sandwiches. Now it was cold rainy, and people wanted an evening paper for a cheerless joyless journey ahead and a dull evening indoors. At 6:30, with the main rush over, he started to collect the money together and count it. Then he left the stand and went home. It was the assistant’s turn this evening to look after it till eight o’clock, when it would be packed away for the night. His large white Mercedes was in the private car park of a large government building. He’d parked there for six months, pretending to be part of a heating firm working in the building. They would find out about him soon, and he’d have to park in a garage again, which was annoying. Their charges were far too high. A couple of junior clerks, regular customers, happened to see him getting into his car. “must be a lot of money in papers, eh?” one of them shouted. He just smiled coldly in reply, and got into the car, placing the bags of money on the floor. He thought about the clerks on the way home. Like the majority of his customers, despite their white shirts and dark suits, they probably made in a week as much as he could make in a good day. 45．It seems unlikely that the newspaper seller would be the sort of man who would ______. A．be a cheerful companion C．trust his assistant much A．sell papers until 8 o’clock C. count the money taken that day B．try to cheat a customer D．earn a great deal of money B．start selling magazines at 8 o’clock D．lock up the car park B．My Sister Jan D．The Most Important Time in Your Life
46．The assistant’s job that evening was to ______.
47．If they realized that he was not a heating engineer he would have to _______. A．park his car in a government car park B． pay to park his car in a garage
C．look for another free parking place A．badly dressed C．not as rich as himself
D．pretend he was a government employee
48．When the newspaper seller thought about the two clerks he decided they were _______ B. very well off D. not as hardworking as himself C They may be small and not able to speak, but babies are proving their amazing cleverness. Scientists began finding infants’ skills are more than they are supposed to be. _________ Speaking of music, babies can’t seem to resist it. Not only are their ears turned to the beats, babies can actually dance to the music. To test babies’ dancing ability, the researchers played recordings of classical music, rhythmic beats and speech to infants, and recorded the results. They also invited professional dancers to analyze how well the babies matched their movements to the music. The babies moved their arms, hands, legs feet and heads in response to the music, much more than to the speech. The finding suggests this dancing ability is innate(与 生俱来的) in humans, though the researchers aren’t sure why it becomes weaker later in their life. Learning Quickly while Sleeping Babies can learn even while asleep, according to a 2011 study. In experiment with 26 sleeping infants, each just 1 to 2 days old, scientists played a musical tone followed by a puff of air to their eyes 200 times over the course of a half hour. 124 electrodes(电极) stuck on the head and face of each baby recorded brain activity during the experiments. The babies rapidly learned to foretell a puff of air upon hearing the tone, showing a four-time increase on average in the chances of tightening their eyelids in response to the sound by the end of the experiments. As newborns spend most of their time asleep, this newfound ability might be crucial to rapidly adapting to the world around them and help to ensure their survival, researchers said. Judging Characters Well Judging another person helpful or harmful is crucial when choosing friends. And that ability starts early. Kiley Hamlin of Yale University showed both 6-and 10-month-olds a puppet(木偶) show, in which one character helped another climb a hill. In another scene a third character pushed the climber down. The little ones then got to choose which character they preferred. For both age groups, most babies chose the helper character. This character-judging ability could be baby’s first step in the formation of morals, Hamlin thought. 49. Which of the following subtitles can fill in the underlined blank? A. Dancing to Music C. Born to Dance. A. the finding C. the response B. Babies’ Amazing Abilities D. Learning to Dance Quickly B. the baby D. the dancing ability
50. The underlined word “it” in the third paragraph refers to______.
51. The experiment with 26 sleeping infants prove that_______. A. babies can communicate with others while asleep
B. babies can learn even while asleep C. babies can tighten their eyelids in response to the sound D. babies can respond to the world around them 52. In the last experiment, most babies chose the helper character, showing that________. A. babies can judge a person helpful or harmful B. babies love to see a puppet show C. babies were born to help others D. babes have learned to help others D Recently we’ve observed an increasing request from disadvantaged and regional schools for attending one of our zoo areas at no cost or partly paid some organizations. Zoos Victoria believes that all children should have the opportunity to have an early memory of visiting the zoo, and gain an understanding of the wild and natural world that humans share with animals.

Memory really is learning. One needs memory to ride a bicycle. A dog needs to remember if it is to Come when called. Memory is said to be stored in the brain as a “memory trace.” What makes up this trace is not known. Some scientists believe that certain chemical substances may carry certain memories. For example, one substance, when given to rats, causes them to fear the dark. Other research into memory has to do with how the brain works. Psychologists use three means to find out how a person remembers. For example, give a person a grocery list. Let the person memorize the list, then put it away. The most natural way to find out how much a person remembers of the grocery list is to ask what he or she remembers. This is called the method of recall. Another method is called recognition. Give the person another grocery list. Ask him or her to choose items on the first list from the items that are on only the second list. Often a person will be able to recognize things that he or she cannot recall. A third method of finding how much a person remembers is called relearning. Here the person is asked to read over the first list. The person will probably learn the list the second time faster than he did the first time. The difference in the time it takes to relearn the list is thought of as a measure of how much a person has remembered. One way of remembering something is to repeat it many times. Interest is very important. Boring lists of facts are much more difficult to remember than something that we understand and are interested in. Motivation, or wanting to do something, is also important. Motivation is linked with reward. For example, a hungry animal quickly learns how to do something if that action gets the animal food. In humans, wanting
to learn is often motivation. The praise of a teacher or the knowledge that an answer is correct is rewarding. 57. We can learn from the 2nd paragraph that ___________ . A. it is hard to tell what a memory trace consists of B. bad memories may cause rats to fear the dark C. chemical substances carry certain memories D. memory is stored in the brain as a substance 58. The way to pick out the items on the first list from the second is known as ___________ . A. recall B. recognition C. memorization D. relearning 59. What is considered as a measure of how much one has remembered? A. The length of the list. C. The time difference of brain working. A. make the action easy C. reward it with food B. The type of list items. D. The time difference of relearning. . B. praise it in words D. weaken its motivation
60. A good way to train an animal to do something quickly is to
