1.It was Mother?s Day morning last year and I was doing my shopping at our local supermarket with my five-year-old son, Tenyson. As we were leaving, we found that only minutes earlier an elderly woman had fallen over at the entrance and had hit her head on the concrete. Her husband was with her, but there was blood everywhere and the woman was embarrassed and clearly in shock. Walking towards the scene, Tenyson became very upset about what had happened to the couple. He said to me, “Mum, it?s not much fun falling over in front of everyone.” At the front of the supermarket a charity(慈善) group had set up a stand selling cooked sausages and flowers to raise funds. Tenyson suggested that we should buy the lady a flower. “It will make her feel better,” he said. I was amazed that he?d come up with such a sweet idea. So we went over to the flower seller and asked her if we could buy a flower for the lady to cheer her up. “Just take it,” she replied. “I can?t take your money for such a wonderful gesture.” By now paramedics (救援人员) had arrived, and were attending the injured woman. As we walked up to her, my son became intimidated by all the blood and medical equipment. He said he was just too scared to go up to her. Instead I gave the flower to the woman?s husband and told him, “ My son was very upset for your wife and wanted to give her this flower to make her feel better.” At that, the old man started crying and said, “Thank you so much, you have a wonderful son. Happy Mother?s Day to you.” The man then bent down and gave his wife the flower, telling her who it was from. Though badly hurt and shaken, the old lady looked up at Tenyson with love in her eyes and gave him a little smile. What would be the best title for the passage? A. Flower Power B. Mother?s Day C. An Accidental Injury D. An Embarrassing Moment 2.Elizabeth Freeman was born about 1742 to African American parents who were slaves. At the age of six months she was acquired, along with her sister, by John Ashley, a wealthy Massachusetts slaveholders. She became known as “Mumbet” or “Mum Bett.” For nearly 30 years Mumbet served the Ashley family. One day, Ashley?s wife tried to strike Mumbet?s sister with a spade. Mumbet protected her sister and took the blow instead. Furious, she left the house and refused to come back. When the Ashleys tried to make her return, Mumbet consulted a lawyer, Theodore Sedgewick. With his help, Mumbet sued(起诉) for her freedom. While serving the Ashleys, Mumbet had listened to many discussions of the new Massachusetts constitution. If the constitution said that all people were free and equal, then she thought it should apply to her. Eventually, Mumbet won her freedom---- the first slave in Massachusetts to do so under the new constitution. Strangely enough, after the trial, the Ashleys asked Mumbet to come back and work for them as a paid employee. She declined and instead went to work for Segdewick. Mumbet died in 1829, but her legacy lived on in her many descendants(后裔). One of her great-grandchildren was W.E.B. Du Bois, one of the founder of the NAACP, and an important writer and spokesperson for African

American civil rights. Mumbet?s tombstone still stands in the Massachusetts cemetery where she was buried. It reads, in part: “She was born a slave and remained a slave and remained a slave for nearly thirty years. She could neither read nor write, yet in her own sphere she had no superior or equal.” What is the test mainly about? A. A story of a famous writer and spokesperson B. The friendship between a lawyer and a slave C. The life of a brave African American woman D. A trial that shocked the whole world 3.So you thought the hamburger was the world?s most popular fast food? After all, McDonald?s Golden Arches span the globe. But no, there is another truly universal fast food, the ultimate (极好 的)fast food. It?s easy to make, easy to serve, much more varied that the hamburger, can be eaten with the hands, and it?s delivered to your front door or served in fancy restaurants. It?s been one of America?s favourite foods for over 50 years. It is, of course, the pizza. It?s kind of silly to talk about the moment when pizza was “invented”. It gradually evolved over the years, but one thing?s for certain—it?s been around for a very long time. The idea of using pieces of flat, round bread as plates came from the Greeks. They called them ?plakuntos?and ate them with various simple toppings such as oil, garlic, onions, and herbs. The Romans enjoyed eating something similar and called it ?picea?. By about 1000 a.d. in the city of Naples, ?picea? had become ?pizza? and people were experimenting with more toppings: cheese, ham, anchovies, and finally the tomato, brought to Italy from Mexico and Peru in the sixteenth century. Naples became the pizza capital of the world. In 1889, King UmbertoⅠand Queen Margherita heard about pizza and asked to try it. They invited pizza maker, Raffele Esposito, to make it for them. He decided to make the pizza like the Italian flag, so he used red tomatoes, white mozzarella cheese, and green basil leaves. The Queen loved it and the new pizza was named ?Pizza Margherita? in her honour. Pizza migrated to America with the Italians at the end of the nineteenth century. The first pizzeria in the United States was opened in 1905 at 53 Spring Street, New York City, by Gennaro Lombardi. But the popularity of pizza really exploded when American soldiers returned from Italy after World WarⅡ and raved about ?that great Italian dish?. Americans are now the greatest producers and consumers of pizza in the world. Which one is the best title for the passage? A. McDonald?s and Pizza. B. The Popularity of Pizza in the United States. C. Global Pizza. D. How to Make Pizza. 4.As you grow older, you?ll be faced with some challenging decisions--like whether to cut class or try cigarettes. Making decisions on your own is hard enough, but when other people get involved and try to pressure you one way or another it can be even harder. People who are your age, like your classmates, are called peers. When they try to influence how you act, to get you to do something, it?s called peer pressure. Peers can have a positive influence on each other. Maybe another student in your science class

taught you an easy way to remember the planets in the solar system. Maybe you got others excited about your new favorite book, and now everyone?s reading it. These are examples of how peers positively influence each other. Sometimes peers influence each other in negative ways. For example, a few kids in school might try to get you to cut class with them; your soccer friend might try to convince you to be mean to another player and never pass him the ball. It is tough to be the only one who says “no” to peer pressure, but you can do it. Paying attention to your own feelings and beliefs about what is right and wrong can help you know the right thing to do. You?ve probably had a parent or teacher advising you to “choose your friends wisely.” Peer pressure is a big reason why they say this. If you choose friends who don?t cut class, smoke cigarettes, or lie to their parents, then you probably won?t do these things either, even if other kids do. If you continue to face peer pressure and you?re finding it difficult to handle, talk to someone you trust. Don?t feel guilty if you?ve made a mistake or two. What is the topic of the passage? A. Friendship B. Making decisions C. Self-confidence D. Peer pressure 5. I guess I always knew about the little fish treat, but this past summer it was all I could see. Pipin and Nemo were balancing on one front flipper(鳍), flying through hoops, dancing with the trainer, and we were all applauding — the little kids screaming with delight. That?s when the trainer, who wore a little treat bag on her belt, slipped Pipin and Nemo a fish. Each time they successfully performed a trick, they?d get an immediate reward. These creatures weren?t really dancing, of course. They were performing a series of movements that they knew would produce a fish. It?s such a good show because the sea lions look like they?re having such fun. These talented performers who love to be in front of an audience seem almost human. Somewhere in our faith journey, we all have a sea lion moment. You see how you?ve spent years jumping through hoops, balancing a ball on your nose, not because it?s really who you are, but because you?ve always done it and the system rewarded you for your performance. But when you?ve done that for ten or twenty years, you start to ask yourself, “Whose approval am I working for? What do I really believe?” Suddenly you see it: you?ve spent most all your life taking direction from other people. They?ve told you what to believe in, what to work for, what to value, how to live your life. You don?t want to end your life like Sinclair Lewis?s George Babbitt, the middle-aged real-estate broker(经纪人) who has everything and reached the top. But on the last page of Babbitt, George is speaking to his son Ted, who cannot follow in his father?s steps. He wants to leave college and head off on his own way. “Dad, I can?t stand it any more,” the boy says. “Maybe it?s all right for some fellows. Maybe I?ll want to go back some day, but now, I want to get into mechanics.” Babbitt, seeming old and subdued, says, “I?ve never done a single thing I?ve wanted to in my whole life!” The Good-Bye Gate brings us naturally to a second passage, leading from dependency to self-possession. As you start separating from the whole worn-out system, you discover that where
