Here are some findings and expert advice. 1. How many times did you brush your teeth yesterday? ●Finding：A full 33% of seniors brush their teeth only once a day. ●Step：Remove the 300 types of bacteria in your mouth each morning with a battery-operated toothbrush. Brush gently for 2 minutes, at least twice a day. 2. How many times did you wash your hands or bathe yesterday? ●Finding：Seniors, on average, bathe fewer than 3 days a week. And nearly 30% wash their hands only 4 times a day---- half of the number doctors recommend. ●Step：We touch our faces around 3,000 times a day----often inviting germs (病菌) to enter our mouth, nose, and eyes. Use toilet paper to avoid touching the door handle. And, most important, wash your hands often with hot running water and soap for 20 seconds. 3. How often do you think about fighting germs? ●Finding：Seniors are not fighting germs as well as they should. ●Step：Be aware of germs. Do you know it is not your toilet but your kitchen sponge (海绵)that can carry more germs than anything else? To kill these germs, keep your sponge in the microwave for 10 seconds. 21. What is found out about American seniors? A. Most of them have good habits. B. Nearly 30% of then bathe three days a week. C. About one third of them brush their teeth only once a day. D. All of them are fighting germs better than expected. 22. Doctors suggest that people should wash their hands _______. A. twice a day C. four times a day B. eight times a day D. three times a day
23. Which of the following is true according to the text?
A. A kitchen sponge can carry more germs than a toilet. B. There are less than 300 types of bacteria in the mouth. C. We should keep from touching our faces. D. We should wash our hands before touching a door handle. 24. The text probably comes from ________. A. a guide book C. a book review B I wish there would be a way to describe China in simple terms but that?s impossible. For the most part Chinese people are friendly, easy-going and optimistic. They are curious and unusually patient and they are also the hardest-working people I have ever met. In China, family is everything. In my English classes when the students were asked what they would do if they only had a few hours to live, most students told me how they would spend their last few hours with their families and parents. Many times the subjects in the classes center on families and friends. I teach many students a year, talking to them freely. The cost of living here is very low compared with that of the US. The city of Xiang Fan I live in isn?t large and I live better. Non-imported（非进口的） foods are very cheap, so are clothing and articles of everyday use. The cost of public transportation is very low, too. Chinese value education. However, it is reported that many children can?t afford the expenses of schooling and are forced to leave school in some poor areas in China. But they organized Project Hope many years ago. It creates conditions for the poor children to go back to school. In my opinion, Project Hope is of great importance to the development of the rural education. When we read news of China in the west, rarely, if ever, will we see anything mentioned of the positive changes China has gone through. While it is true that economic miracles have not reached many areas of China, but we also have the same problems. When I am asked which country I consider better, China or the US, my answer has always been the same, “We are not worse or better than each other, we are only different.” 25. What does the author think of Chinese people? A. He thinks most Chinese people hardly work. C. He thinks most Chinese people are proud. 26. What are not cheap in China in the author?s opinion? A. Clothes and shoes made in China. C. Imported foods . A. the progress of China is seldom reported in the US B. Public transportation tickets. D. Local foods. B. He praises most Chinese people a lot. D. He dislikes most Chinese people. B. an official document D. a popular magazine
27. We can infer from the passage that the author thinks __________．
B. China?s economic miracles have appeared everywhere C. the westerners have got to know China well D. the education in rural areas is never cared about in China C Have you ever run into a careless cell phone user on the street? Perhaps they were busy talking, texting or checking updates on WeChat without looking at what was going on around them. As the number of this new “species” of human has kept rising, they have been given a new name — phubbers（低头族）. Recently, a cartoon created by students from China Central Academy of Fine Arts put this group of people under the spotlight. In the short film, phubbers with various social identities bury themselves in their phones. A doctor plays with his cell phone while letting his patient die, a pretty woman takes selfie(自拍) in front of a car accident site, and a father loses his child without knowing about it while using his mobile phone. A chain of similar events eventually leads to the destruction of theworld. Although the ending sounds overstated, the damage phubbing can bring is real. Your health is the first to bear the effect and result of it. “Constantly bending your head to check your cell phone could damage your neck,” Guangming Daily quoted doctors as saying. “the neck is like a rope that breaks after long-term stretching.” Also, staring at cell phones for long periods of time will damage your eyesight gradually, according to the report. But that?s not all. Being a phubber could also damage your social skills and drive you away from your friends and family. At reunions with family or friends, many people tend to stick to their cell phones while others are chatting happily with each other and this creates a strange atmosphere, Qilu Evening News reported. It can also cost you your life. There have been lots of reports on phubbers who fell to their death, suffered accidents, and were robbed of their cell phones in broad daylight. 28. For what purpose does the author give the example of a cartoon in Para. 2? A. To warn doctors against using cell phones while treating patients. B. To inform people of the bad effects of phubbing. C. To indicate the world will finally be destroyed by phubbers. D. To advertise the cartoon made by students. 29. Which of the following is NOT a risk a phubber may have? A. He will cause the destruction of the world. B. His neck and eyesight will be gradually harmed. C. He might get separated from his friends and family.
D. His social skills could be affected. 30. Which of the following may be the author?s attitude towards phubbing? A. Supportive. B. Optimistic. C. Opposed. D. Objective. 31. What may the passage talk about next? A. Advice on how to use a cell phone. C. Consequences of phubbing. D These days a green building means more than just the color of the paint. Green buildings can also refer to environmentally friendly houses, factories, and offices. Green building means “reducing the effect of the building on the land”, Taryn Holowka of the U.S. Green Building Council(评议会) in Washington, D.C., said. According to Holowka, building accounts for 65 percent of total U.S. electricity use. But green buildings can reduce energy and water use. Also, the buildings are often located near public transportation such as buses and subways, so that people can drive their cars less. That could be good for the environment, because cars use lots of gas and give off pollution. Green buildings are often built on developed land, so that the buildings don?t destroy forests. Marty Dettling is project manager for a building that puts these ideas into action. The Solaire has been called the country?s first green high-rise building. According to Dettling, “We?ve reduced our energy use by one-third and our water by 50 percent.” The Solaire cuts energy in part by using solar power. “On the face of the building we have solar panels（光板） which change the sun?s energy into electricity,”Dettling explained. The Solaire also has lights that automatically turn off when people leave the room. In addition, the building has lots of windows, allowing people to use the sun for light during the day. The Solaire cuts water by reusing it. Not everyone is eager to move into a green building, however. Some people think that things like solar panels cost more money than more traditional energy sources. Anyhow, Holowka said, “It?s going to be big.” 32. A green building means ________________________. A. a building that uses no electricity C. a building that saves energy and water A. which has already been for buildings B. which has thick forests around C. where people of high income live D. where traveling around by car is most convenient B. a building occupying less land D. a green-colored building B. People addicted to phubbing. D. Measures to reduce the risks of phubbing.
33. A green building is often built on an area of land_________.
34. When Holowka says inthe last paragraph, “It?s going to be big”, she means that green buildings __________. A. will be more comfortable C. will be more environmentally friendly 35. Which is the main idea of the passage? A. Dettling designed the first green building in the U.S. B. The Solaire serves as a model of high buildings. C. Green buildings help save the environment. D. Energy shortage calls for buildings of new design. 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， 选项中有两项为多余选 项。 （注意：E 涂 AB，F 涂 AC，G 涂 AD。 ） How can I fight laziness?

Dear Li Ming, I?m sorry to hear that you are under great pressure and don?t know what to do. As your best friend, I?d like to offer you some advice. First of all, you should have enough sleep at night because staying up too late is bad for your health. Second, it doesn’t make sense to compare yourself with others because everyone is different from others physically and mentally. More importantly, it is beneficial to develop a positive attitude towards life. Although we attach importance to the College Entrance Examination, it is equally significant to improve our overall qualities. Besides, you should take regular exercise in order to keep fit. Only by relieving stress and pressure properly can you make full use of your time and achieve your goal. Just believe in yourself that you can make it. I do hope my advice will be of a little help to you.
Yours, Wang Hong
