Though I usually left in the evening ,for some reason last time I had to choose to set off after midnight I was on my way back to Austin when I realized I left an important file , and knew I had to return to get it. I took the first exit I could, but When I rounded the corner, an 18-wheeler was stopped dead in the exit lane. I swerved(急转弯) to avoid it, and then I realized that there was something wrong with my car So I pulled into a small parking lot and unsurprisingly found the area deserted at 3 :15 am. I've lived in urban areas most of my life. I'm fairly street-wise and don' t become frightened easily , but I knew I was in a pretty tough neighborhood. There was no one in Houston to pick me up. I immediately locked the doors and picked up my phone to call a tow truck. Soon a young man knocked on my driver's side window and asked if he could help me Judging from his appearance, he was far from a mad man, but I knew he was far more likely to rob than help me. So I lied to him. After a while ,he asked again ,but this time I politely refused and told him the tow truck was due any minute. He finally said, "Madam ,you need help. A tow truck in Houston will arrive anywhere between 45 minutes and approximately never ( which I knew was true) , and you aren't going anywhere until you change your flat tire. " After considering thoroughly , I got out. He looked surprised, but got right to work. He changed the tire ,returned the seat to its place and said, " Thank you for letting me help you. You gave me a chance when most people would never open the door to someone like me. Would it be okay if I gave you a hug?" When I recovered ,I gave him a giant hug ,I left with a new tire and a renewed faith in human nature. 21. What's the matter with the author's car? A. It couldn't get started. B. Its tire blew out C. It was out of control. D. Its oil ran out. 22. Why did the author lie to the man and refuse his help in the beginning? A. Because she thought the man was playing jokes. B. Because she thought the man wanted to get a lift. C. Because she thought the man might be a bad man D. Because she thought the. man was a mad man. 23. Which of the following can best .describe the author? A Cautious and brave. B. Impolite and dishonest C. Stubborn but brave. D. Generous but dishonest. 24. Which of the following might be the best title for the text? A. Help in the Dead of Night B. Attitude Determines Everything C. The Fight against Robbing on My Way D. An Unexpected Traffic Accident B

exposed to low levels of lights overnight can develop signs of clinical depression. Investigators , curious as to whether the color of light contributed to depressive symptoms in Humans ,designed an experiment that exposed hamsters (仓鼠) to different colors. Hamsters sleep during the day and are active at night ,in reverse, humans sleep at night and are active during the day. That is why they chose hamsters to do the experiment. The first group of hamsters ( G1) was kept in the dark during their nighttime period. The second group of hamsters ( G2) was exposed to blue light and the third group (G3) slept in the presence of white light. The fourth group of hamsters (G4) was exposed to red light. After four weeks, researchers noted how much sugary water the hamsters drank. Randy Nelson, chair of Ohio State University's Department of Neuroscience and co-author of the study, said animals that slept in blue and white light appeared to be the most depressed. " What we saw is these animals didn't show any sleep disruptions at all but they did have disturbed the biological clock genes and they did show depressive symptoms. However ,if they were in the dim red light ,they did not, " Nelson said. Nelson said there's a lot of blue in white light, and this type of light is similar to daylight, convincing the brain that it is still daytime, which explained why hamsters seemed more depressed in blue light and white light than hamsters exposed to red light or darkness Nelson had suggestions for so-called "night owls" or people who work the night shift. " My recommendation is that you should live a typical mostly active life during the day and The mostly inactive at night You should limit exposure to TVs which are quite bluish in the light they give off and computer screens and things like that, " stated Nelson. " Of course , you can also install protective glass on your computer screen. " 29. What does the underlined phrase "in reverse" in Paragraph 2 probably mean?

The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing simply because you can only do a little. In fact , it is far more productive to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a giant leap. 37 Figure out where you want to go, take a step, and keep on stepping. Diligence and persistence will get you there 2. 38 Two people can be affected by the same circumstance but respond in completely different ways. The reason is that it just depends on their attitudes. When you expect life to be unkind, it will always live up to your expectations. On the other hand , when you consider yourself to be in a fortunate situation ,you will find yourself in many more. 39 3. You can only change yourself. Don't wait for someone who hurt you to make it up to you; this kind of thinking only keeps your old wounds from healing. 40 You have no control over them, and they may never change. Inner peace is found by changing your thinking, not the people who hurt you. So forgive those who have hurt you in the past, and even more importantly, forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you. Then smile like you've never cried re-open your heart and mind like you've never been hurt ,and live the rest of your life like you're running out of time. A. Fear always exists. B. Attitude makes all the difference. C. Waiting for them to change is not the answer. D. Here are some important reminders to jog your memory E. The path to every goal requires a hundred small steps-one after the other. F In the end ,we learn even more from our failures than we do from our successes. G.
