Ms Pethrick was standing on a river bank Wednesday afternoon when the saltwater crocodile lunged (扑), locking its jaws on both her legs as it tried to drag her underwater. Norm Pethrick, who with his wife had been collecting water, immediately went to help her. He jumped onto the back, poked (戳) the eyes of the crocodile and finally got his wife free.

A．Asian climate will change greatly． B．Some islands may be flooded in the future． C．People may meet with some new diseases resulting from water． D.More than 50 million people have been ill in Asia the year before． D Students who date(约会) in middle school have significantly worse study skills. They are four times more likely to drop out of school and report twice as much alcohol and tobacco use as their single classmates, according to new research from the University of Georgia. “Romantic relationships are a trademark of adolescence, but very few studies have examined how adolescents differ in the development of these relationships,” said Pamela Orpinas, study author and professor in the College of Public Health and head of the Department of Health Promotion and Behavior. Orpinas followed a group of 624 students over a seven-year period from 6th to 12th grade. Each year, the group of students completed a survey indicating whether they had dated and reported the frequency of different behaviors, including the use of drugs and alcohol. Their teachers completed questionnaires about the students’ academic(学术的) efforts. He found that some students never or hardly ever reported dating from middle to high school, and these students always had the best study skills according to their teachers. Other students dated infrequently in middle school but increased the frequency of dating in high school. “At all points in time, teachers considered the students who reported the lowest frequency of dating as having the best study skills and the students with the highest dating as having the worst study skills,” according to the journal article. Study skills refer to behaviors that lead to academic success such as doing work for extra credit (学分), being well organized, finishing homework, working hard and reading assigned chapters.

“Dating a classmate may be as complicated as dating a co-worker,” Orpinas said, “when the couple break up, they have to continue to see each other in class and perhaps see the ex-partner dating someone else. It is reasonable to think this could be linked to depression and could divert (转移) attention from studying.” “Dating should not be considered a ceremony of growth in middle school,” Orpinas concluded. 32. According to the passage, students who date in middle school may_____ A. have poorer academic performances B. be more likely to hurt others C. enjoy better school lives D. be less likely to use alcohol and tobacco 33. When doing his study, Orpinas ________________. A. followed a group of students of 6th and 12th grade B. completed a survey and a report each year C. found that the students’ study skills have connection with their frequency of dating D. completed questionnaires about the students’ academic efforts 34. What can possibly happen to the school couples after they break up? A. They don’t want to see each other any longer. B. They will think it’s reasonable to get depressed. C. They will miss their ex-partners sometimes. D. Their attention to studying will be affected. 35. Orpinas’ attitude towards dating in middle school is_____ A. supportive B. negative C. positive D. unconcerned 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项，并在答案卡 36--40 将该项涂黑。选项中有两项为多余项。 __36__You probably think you will never be a top student.

Last Monday, we were having our Chinese class while the teacher suddenly slip
and fell. We were all worried about her. One of the boy carried her on the back, under the help of some others, to the clinic immediately. It turned out that her right leg was breaking and she had to stay in hospital. The following day, we went to visit her with flowers and fruit. Seeing her laying in bed with leg wrapped in bandages, we felt sorry for her and hoped that she would recover soon. Lucky enough, this Thursday she returned back to the class in a wheelchair to give us lessons. We were both deeply moved and proud of having such a responsible teacher. 第二节：书面表达 (共 30 分) 根据提示，写一篇建议信。假如你是某报编辑，昨天收到学生李华的来 信。请根据来信的内容和所给的要点提示用英语写一封回信。
