阅读理解 There is one type of illness in the world that affects more people than anything else and is very deadly. If untreated this illness could affect everything you do. What is this illness? Depression. Serious depression requires professional treatment. Self-induced depression is something each of us can change. Everyone's circumstances are different, but the causes of self-induced depression are common: low self-esteem, hurtful thinking and a bad attitude. So how can we change the way we think, feel, and cultivate a cheerful attitude? First we must look at ourselves, truly and honestly examining our motives for what we wish to achieve. If you are dissatisfied because you feel you haven't or can't do anything, then one step is needed - to set goals. Always start your goals relatively small and easy to attain. Think of them as sand; one grain may be insignificant but as a group they form the beach. Once you have set and attained small goals for yourself, move on to slightly larger, more challenging goals. It takes more than just setting goals to be happy. It takes positive thinking. How can we attain this? There are a number of factors that can make us think negatively and one of those is diet. In my opinion, a person who eats a lot of take out and fast food is feeding their body junk. Start by eating better foods which give the body much NEEDED minerals. If your physical body is happy, it's much easier for your mental body or "thinking ability" to be happy. Next, exercise. A half-hour a day is recommended for positive well being. Then think about good memories you had, or generally think of things that make you smile. Remember, everything you wear costs money but to wear a smile is free. A smile can be the difference between an average day and a great day. If you follow these steps, positive change is inevitable. 1. Which of the statements about depression is TRUE? A. Depression is a kind of illness that can’t be cured like some cancer.
B. C. D.
Depression can all be cured successfully by patients themselves. Those who suffer from depression feel dissatisfied with themselves. Those who suffer from depression live in similar circumstances.
1. According to the passage we can learn that ____________. A. a practical goal can help people to achieve a sense of success B. we shouldn’t be satisfied with small goals that are insignificant C. we should avoid challenging goals that may lead to failure D. people can enjoy happiness only if they set reasonable goals 2. In order to achieve positive thinking a person should do these things EXCEPT____________. A. set challenging goals C. exercise half an hour a day B. eat healthier foods D. always wear a smile
4. What can we infer from the reading passage? A. Those who can achieve small goals can surely achieve big ones. B. Take out and fast food cannot provide peop le with enough minerals. C. You can only exercise half an hour if you want to get rid of depression. D. Smile is the cheapest thing compared to other possessions you have. 5. What’s the passage mainly about? A. To prove the argument that depression can be changed. B. To analyze the danger depression can bring to people. C. To introduce to readers how to keep positive thinking. D. To recommend some ways to deal with depression.

【甘肃省武威三中 2013 模拟（5） 】C When your pet meets your infant(婴儿)，it might not be love at first sniff. When Jennifer brought her baby home from the hospital, her cherished dogs had very different
reactions. Her Boxer, Sonya, was immediately gentle and prot ective. But Tiger, the Pomeranian, was less welcoming. “If any diapers(尿布)or toys were on the floor, he peed on them,” says the Greenbrier, mom. In the eyes of a pet, there’s a new star in home who’s stealing his spotlight. Even the gentlest animal will probably act up if he doesn’t get his usual attention. These simple steps will help your pet adjust and keep your baby safe. Introduce Them with Care Your newborn and per’s first encounter can set the tone for their relationship. To make it as smooth as possible, try this trick from Caryn Ruiz：“Before we left the hospital, my husband took blankets home to our dog, Daisy, so she’d know our newborn Devon’s smell.” When you get home, have your husband carry the baby so you can greet your pet without worrying about her jumping on you. A cat will likely walk away at first, while a dog probably wants to investigate right away. To introduce your baby, get down on your pet’s level and let her have a hello sniff. Don’t panic and pull your baby away unless your pet is barking or hissing, because it’ll send the message that the baby is a threat. Learn the Safety Basics No matter how smoothly the introduction goes, there are certain safety rules you should follow. Never leave your baby alone with the pet. Even the gentlest animal can react unpredictably. Your baby’s crying could frighten your cat, or your dog could suddenly become territorial. Consider setting up baby gates to limit your pet’s access. To keep your cat from jumping into the bassinet(有篷盖的摇篮), try putting mosquito netting over the top. Cats hate sticky paws, so keep the crib(有栏杆的 婴 儿床)and changing table o ff-limits by lining the edges with sticky strips made for furniture. You can also train your dog to sleep in a crate(大木箱). 64. At the beginning of the passage, the author uses the stories to_____.
