Xin g suggested the government give out 1,000 Yuan to each Chinese since the government income has increased rapidly in recent years. He said his suggestion would allow everyone to directly e
njoy the fruits of the country's economic success, help the lower-income groups deal with rising prices and increase consumption（消费）around the country. Recent years have seen the government carry out a series of pro-poor (扶贫) and pro-rural（惠农）policies, including increasing spending on public healthcare and calling off the agricultural tax. But the lower-income group still needs more help while being hit hard by an 11-year high in prices and recent snowstorms. Xing said while making the draft, he has borrowed many ideas from practices in countries like the United States and Singapore. Earlier this year, the governments of the two nations offered cash handouts （救济） to their citizens as the result of a surplus in government income. As for in China, "We can even encourage the rich to donate their 1,000 Yuan red packet to the poor," said Xing. Although Xing's suggestion has gained wide support among ordinary Chinese on the Internet, many other economists criticized it as unpractical. Even Xing himself admitted he made the suggestion without any careful calculation. But they agreed with Xing's point that the growing economic pie should be shared among the people. "To better use the increase of money, handing out money is not a solution that holds
good for all time. It could be better to improve the public service or cut the price of energy use in daily life," said Qiao Xinsheng, an economic professor. 21. Xing Pu suggested that the government give out 1,000 Yuan to each Chinese because ____. A. the poor should get help from the rich B. the government should help the rich C. the growing economic pie should be shared among the people D. the government doesn?t know how to use the money 22. What has the government done to help the lower-income group? A. Spending less on public health care. B. Increasing the agricultural tax. C. Handing out money to every Chinese. D. Carrying out pro-poor policies. 23. According to some experts, what is better than giving out money? A. Supplying food to everyone every day. B. Cutting the price of energy use in daily life. C. Controlling the rising of prices. D. Increasing the government income. 24. Xing Pu's ideas of giving red packets to every Chinese citizen mainly came from ______. A. children receiving red packets from their families B. the US and Singapore governments offering cash handouts to their citizens C. the government's increasing spending on public health care D. the rising prices in the country B Shellharbour City Library provides a range of Library Special Needs Services for people who are unable to access our library service in the usual way.

He fired people who didn't do well without giving them a second chance. "Watson," said Mr. Smith, "this past year your department hasn't earned money. We're going to drop that department. It's finished. I?m sorry, —but you'll have to go." "But, sir — if I just had a little more time. For the moment I need the job to keep my son at Riverside School." "What's that!" said the boss. "Riverside! I didn't know you had a boy there. That's an expensive school for a man with your salary." "I know, sir. But he likes it there so much! He's a star athlete and the best boxer in the school. The boys call him Champ (冠军)there." The boss sat perfectly still for a long time — a faraway (恍惚的) look in his eyes. Then, suddenly, he said, "We've got to close your department, Watson. But you'll take over a new job in another department. It means longer hours—maybe more pay. Now get out. You're here for life." Watson got out, with surprise on his face. Then the boss took a letter from the top drawer of his desk. It was Herbie's last letter from Riverside School —written a few days before he
died. He had read it over and over again with sick pain. The letter read: I can?t say the boys here are any nicer to me than the others were. I guess it's the same everywhere when you're a cripple (跛脚的人). But don't worry about me, Dad. They've got a good chemistry department here. And there?s one boy here who is really great. He's a track star and boxing champ and just tops in chemistry. The boys call him Champ. He made them stop throwing my books around. And he knocked a boy down who hit me. He is the best friend I ever had. Dad, when I grow up, I want to do something for Champ. Something big — that he won?t even know about. Your son, Herbie 29. Mr. Smith wanted to fire Watson because _____. A. Watson would take over a new job in another department B. Watson had his son study in Riverside School C. Watson's son knocked a boy down who hit Herbie D. Watson's department didn't earn money that year 30. We can learn from the text that _____. A. Mr. Smith didn't know that Champ was Watson's son at first B. Mr. Smith was told not to fire Watson by Herbie C. Mr. Smith decided to give Watson another chance in no time D. Mr. Smith wanted to realize Champ's dream 31. According to the text, which words can best describe Mr. Smith? A. Sympathetic and grateful. B. Selfish and greedy. C. Hardworking and strict. D. Easy-going and optimistic. 32. The author wrote the text in order to _____. A. make our children enjoy life B. share a moving story with us C. provide us with tips on work D. help us to deal with our boss D If Confucius(孔子)were still alive today and could celebrate his September 28 birthday with a big cake, there would be a lot of candles. He'd need a fan or a strong wind to help him put them out. While many people in China will remember Confucius on this special day, few people in the United States will give him a passing thought. It's nothing personal. Most Americans don't even remember the birthdays of their own national heroes. But this doesn't mean that Americans don't care about Confucius. In many ways he has become a bridge that foreigners must cross if they want to reach a deeper understanding of China. In the past two decades, the Chinese studies programs have gained huge popularity in Western universities. More recently, the Chinese government has set up Confucius Institutes in more than 80 countries. These schools teach both Chinese language and culture. The main courses of Chinese culture usually included Chinese art, history and philosophy(哲学).Some social scientists suggest that Westerners should take advantages of the ancient Chinese wisdom to make up for the drawbacks of Westerners philosophy. Students in the United
States, at the same time, are racing to learn Chinese. So they will be ready for life in a world where China is an equal power with the United States. Businessmen who hope to make money in China are reading books about Confucius to understand their Chinese customers. So the old thinker's ideas are still alive and well. Today China attracts the West more than ever, and it will need more teachers to introduce Confucius and Chinese culture to the West. As for the old thinker, he will not soon be forgotten by people in the West, even if his birthday is. 33. The opening paragraph is mainly intended to ______. A. provide some key facts about Confucius B. attract the readers' interest in the subject C. show great respect for the ancient thinker D. prove the popularity of modern birthday celebrations 34. We can learn from Paragraph 4 that American students______. A. have a great interest in studying Chinese B. take an active part in Chinese competitions C. try to get high scores in Chinese exams D. fight for a chance to learn Chinese 35. What is the best title for the passage? A. Forgotten Wisdom in America B. Huge Fans of the Chinese Language C. Chinese Culture for Westerners D. Old Thinker with a Big Future
