My brothers and I all loved Brownie and did different things with her. One of us would walk her, another would feed her, then there were baths, playing catch and many other games. Brownie, in return, loved each C. Writing skills. 英语知识运用
and every one of us. One thing that most touched my heart was that she would go to whoever was sick and just be with them. We always felt better when she was around.
One day, as I was getting her food, she chewed up one of my Dad's shoes, which had to be thrown away in the end. I knew Dad would be mad and I had to let her know what she did was wrong. When I looked at her and said, "Bad girl," she looked down at the ground and then
went and hid. I saw a tear in her eyes. Brownie turned out to be more than just our family pet. She went everywhere with us. People would stop and ask if they could pet her. Of course she'd let anyone pet her. She was just the most lovable dog. There were many times when we'd be out walking and a small child would come over and pull on her hair. He never barked or tried to get away. Funny thing is she would smile. This frightened people because they thought the truth, she loved everyone. Now many years have passed since Brownie died of old age. I still miss the days when she was with us. 21.What would Brownie do when someone was ill in the family? A. Look at them sadly. C. Keep them company. B. Play games with them. she was showing her teeth. Far from
D. Touch them gently.
22.We can infer from Paragraph 2 that Brownie _____. A. would eat anything when hungry C. felt sorry for her mistake B. loved playing hide-and seek D. disliked the author's dad
23. Why does the author say that Brownie was more than just a family pet? A. She was treated as a member of the family. B. She played games with anyone she liked. C. She went everywhere with the family. D. She was loved by everybody she met. 24 Some people got frightened by Brownie when she _____. A. barked B. smiled C. rushed to them D. tried to be funny
25.Which of the following best describes Brownie? A. Caring. B. Polite. C. Brave. D. Shy B When Mary Moore began her high school in 1951, her mother told her, “Be sure and take a typing(打字) course so when this show business thing doesn’t work out, you’ll have something to rely on.” Mary responded in typical teenage fashion. From that moment on, “the very last thing I ever thought about doing was taking a typing course,” she recalls. The show business thing worked out, of course. In her career, Mary won many awards. Only recently, when she began to write Growing Up Again, did she regret ignoring her mom. “I don’t know how to use a computer,” she admits.
Unlike her 1995 autobiography(自传), After All, her second book is less about life as an award-winning actress but more about living with diabetes (糖尿病). All the money from the book is intended for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), an organization she serves as international chairman. “I felt there was a need for a book like this,” she says. “I didn’t want to teach others, but I wanted other diabetics to know that things get better when we’re self-controlled and do our part in managing the disease.” But she hasn’t always practiced what she teaches. In her book, she describes that awful day, almost 40 years ago, when she received two pieces of life-changing news. First, she had lost the baby she was carrying, and second, tests showed that she had diabetes. In a childlike act, she left the hospital and treated herself to a box of doughnuts (甜甜圈). Years would pass before she realized she had to grow up－again－and take control of her diabetes, not let it control her. Only then did she kick her three-pack-a-day cigarette habit, overcome her addiction(瘾) to alcohol, and begin to follow a balanced diet. Although her disease has affected her eyesight and forced her to the sidelines of the dance floor, she refuses to fall into self-pity. “Everybody on earth can ask, ‘why me?’ about something or other,” she insists. “It doesn’t do any good. No one is immune ( 免疫的 ) to heartache, pain, and disappointments. Sometimes we can make things better by helping others. I’ve come to realize the importance of that as I’ve grown up this second time. I want to speak out and be as helpful as I can be.” 26. Why did Mary feel regretful? A. She didn’t achieve her goal. B. She didn’t follow her mother’s advice. C. She didn’t complete her high school. D. She didn’t take care of her mother. 27. We can know that before 1995 Mary A. received many career awards C. knew how to use a computer B. had two books published D. supported the JDRF by writing
28. Mary’s second book Growing Up Again is mainly about her A. living with diabetes C. service for an organization B. successful show business D. remembrance of her mother
29. When Mary received the life-changing news, she A. behaved in an adult way C. tried to get a treatment B. began a balanced diet D. lost control of herself
30. What can we know from the last paragraph? A. Mary feels pity for herself. B. Mary has recovered from her disease. C. Mary wants to help others as much as possible.
D. Mary determines to go back to the dance floor B The Wife-carrying World Championship has been celebrated in a small town in central Finland since 1992. In 1992, the people of the town decided that it was time to restart some long-forgotten traditions. Back in the late 1800s, there was a robber called Rosvo-Ronkainen in that area. He was said to only accept men as members of his gang who proved their worth in challenges. At that time, it was also a common practice to steal women from neighboring villages. The Wife-carrying World Championship is becoming increasingly popular. A large number of competitors, people, and journalists from Finland to Canada attend the Wife-carrying World championship every year. The event is well-known for its warm and humorous atmosphere. The Wife-carrying World Championship is held on a 253.5 meters long official track. The track has two dry obstacles and a water obstacle, about a meter deep. There are a few basic rules and the winning team is the couple who complete the course in the shortest time. The wife to be carried may be your own, or your neighbor’s. The minimum weight of the wife to be carried is 49kg. If she is less than 49kg, the wife will be given a heavy bag to carry. Each time a competitor drops his wife, that couple will be fined 15 seconds. Along with the Wife-carrying World Championship, there is also a team competition. The distance is the same but three men in the team carry the wife in turns. At the exchange point the carrier has to drink the official “wife-carrying drink” before continuing the race. A special prize is awarded to the team with the best costumes. Alongside with the Wife-carrying World Championship, there are bands playing music, a life-carrying dance and other forms of entertainment. 31. According to the passage, the Wife-carrying World championship ___________. A. was first celebrated in 1992. B. was first held by Rosvo-Ronkainen C. is celebrated in Finland or Canada every year D. will award “wife-carrying drinks” to the winners 32.The Wife-carrying World championship is famous because ___________.
