Stop Spam When I first got an e-mail account ten years ago, I received communications only from family, friends, and colleagues. Now it seems that every time I check my e-mail, I have an endless series of advertisements and other correspondence that do not interest me at all. If we want e-mail to continue to be useful, we need specific laws that make spamming(发送垃圾邮件) a crime. If lawmakers do not do something soon to prohibit spam, the problem will certainly get much worse. Computer programs allow spammers to send hundreds of millions of e-mails almost instantly. As more and more advertisers turn to spam to sell their products, individual(个人的) e-mail boxes are often flooded with spam e-mails. Would people continue to use e-mail if they had to deal with an annoying amount of spam each time? This problem is troubling for individuals and companies as well. Many spam e-mails contain computer viruses that can shut down the entire network of a company. Companies rely on e-mail for their employees to communicate with each other. Spam frequently causes failures in their local communications networks, and their employees are thus unable to communicate effectively. Such a situation results in a loss of productivity and requires companies to repeatedly repair their networks. These computer problems raise production costs of companies, which are, in the end, passes on to the consumer. For these reasons, I believe that lawmakers need to legislate (立法) against spam. Spammers should be fined, and perhaps sent to prison if they continue to disturb people. E- mail is a tool which helps people all over the world to communicate conveniently, but spam is destroying this convenience. 1. What does the underlined word“correspondence” in the Paragraph 1 probably mean? A. messages B. ideas C. connections D. programs 2. According to the text, what is the major cause of the flooding spam? A. Companies rely on e-mail for communications. B. More people in the world communicate by e-mail. C. Many computer viruses contain spam e-mail. D. More advertisers begin to promote sales through spam. 3. What is the purpose of the text?
A. To inform D. To instruct
B. To educate
C. To persuade
My father was always a good gardener. One of my earliest memories is standing without shoes in the freshly tilled(翻耕的) soil, my hands blackened from digging in the ground. As a child, I loved following Dad around in the garden. I remember Dad pushing the tiller(耕作机) ahead in perfectly straight lines. Dad loved growing all sorts of things: yellow and green onions, watermelons almost as big as me, rows of yellow corn, and our favorite--- red tomatoes. As I grew into a teenager, I didn’t get so excited about gardening with Dad. Instead of magical land of possibility, it had turned into some kind of prison. As Dad grew older, his love for gardening never disappeared. After all the kids were grown and had started families of their own, Dad turned to gardening like never before. Even when he was diagnosed with cancer, he still took care of his garden. But then, the cancer, bit by bit, invaded his body. I had to do the things he used to do. What really convinced me that Dad was dying was the state of his garden that year. The rows and rows of multicolored vegetables were gone. Too tired to weed them, he simply let them be. For the first few years after he died, I couldn’t even bear to look at anyone’s garden without having strong memories pour over me like cold water from a bucket. Three years ago, I decided to plant my own garden and started out with just a few tomatoes. That morning, after breaking up a fair amount of soil, something caught the corner of my eye and I had to smile. It was my eight-year-old son Nathan, happily playing in the freshly tilled soil. 21. Why did the author like the garden when he was a child? A. He wanted to be a garden-crazy like his father. B. He loved being in the garden with his father. C. The garden was full of his favorite food. D. The garden was just freshly tilled. 22. When all the kids started their own families, the author’s father _____. A. stopped his gardening B. turned to other hobbies C. devoted more to gardening D. focused on planting tomatoes 23. What happened to the garden when the author’s father was seriously ill? A. There was a great harvest. B. The garden was almost deserted. C. No plant grew in the garden at all. D. The author’s son took charge of the garden. 24. Why did the author start his garden with tomatoes?
A. He wanted to honor his father. B. His son liked the fields of tomatoes. C. He only knew how to grow tomatoes. D. He thought tomatoes were easy to manage.

Now with so many frogs killed, the insects were increasing more rapidly. They were damaging the crops and spreading diseases. Now, the people are still poor. But in the evenings they sit in the village square and listen to sounds of insects and frogs. These sounds of the night now have a much deeper meaning. 56.From paragraph I we learn that the villagers __________.

As to this, we hold a heated discussion. There are two different
viewpoints about them. Some think it necessarily. Firstly, with cellphones, students would have focused their attention on studying instead of wasting their precious time reading junk message. Secondly, the examination will be fair if no one cheats using cellphones. However, the others think it otherwise. For one thing, at the age of information, cellphones have become a necessity. For another, students can use cellphones for study. Personally spoken, even if some students use cellphones for no good reason, we should educate them more than destroy cellphones in such an extreme way.
