No. Parents aren‘t rational because ___36_ isn‘t rational. Young people can understand this about romantic love, but they find it hard to 37 this element (元素) in parental love. My eldest daughter‘s 38 the other day brought this up. ―Let me ask you something, Dad,‖ she began in a tone of patiently controlled 39 that every experienced parent knows. ―I sailed around the Mediterranean in a yacht (游艇) when I was seventeen,‖ she said. ―I hiked through the Pyrenees from Spain to Paris. I‘ve done rock climbing and deep-sea diving and slept in rainforests in the jungle of Indonesia. Right?‖ ―Right,‖ I said, ―So 40 ?‖ ―So this,‖ she went on. ―When I go to the corner drugstore to pick up some shampoo, why do you always tell me to be 41 when I cross the street?‖ There is no 42 answer a parent can give to this. All I could mumble (嘟囔) in 43 was that when I was 50, my mother would _44_ me not to drive too fast. If I were 80 and she were still alive, I would be getting the __45 warning. No matter what the 46, a child is a child. There is something else, too, that children find it hard to 47 . When they are far away, there is nothing we can do about their 48 .

But when the children are 50 , the old protective urge quickly comes back, and it doesn‘t 51 how far they have been or what experiences they have got through. Most 52 happen around the corner, not in the rainforest. The most instinctive (本能的) act of almost every creature is to 53 its young, and with humans this 54 stays for a lifetime. In the parent‘s mind, a child ages but does not 55 . Rational?

The highest peak of Ali Mountain is Tower Hill with the height of 2,663 meters (about 8,736 feet). Ali Mountain is world famous for its ―five rare sites‖ including the Sunrise, the Ali Mountain Forest Railway, the famous Alishan Sacred Tree, the Grand Sea of Clouds, and the Flamboyant Cherry Blossom. It is said that one who has not been to Ali Mountain will never know its wonderful beauty. The sunrise is a must for everyone who travels the Ali Mountain. Many have said, ―To miss viewing the sunrise on Ali Mountain is like returning empty after entering the Golconda, a source of great wealth.‖ The best place to view the sunrise is on the top of Zhu Hill. The place and time of the sunrise are different due to the changes of the four seasons. If you plan to view the sunrise, it is best to ask the local people the time of sunrise, so you don‘t miss this magnificent opportunity. The Ali Mountain Forest Railway is regarded as one of three mountain climbing railways. Traveling along the 72-kilometer-long railway, the train climbs from 30 meters (about 98 feet) to 2,450 meters (about 8,038 feet) above sea level. Its gradient （坡度） is so great that it is rarely seen in the whole world. From the bottom of Ali Mountain to the top, the train crosses four forest areas—tropical, subtropical, temperate and frigid zones. There is a Chinese juniper (杜松) within the Ali Mountain forest area, with some 53 meters (about 174 feet) high, and 23 meters (about 75 feet) wide. This juniper is so huge that more than ten people can surround it. It has a history of more than 3,000 years, thus is called Alishan Sacred Tree. The most wondrous tree is a ―three-generation‖ tree. The three generations of this tree exist in the same trunk. While the first and second generations have faded, the third generation is still flourishing. This tree is really a wonder of nature. The sea of clouds and the cherry blossom should not be overlooked. If you want to avoid sunstroke, the comfortable climate in mid-summer on Ali Mountain will be a good choice. 56. What‘s the main idea of the first paragraph? A. Location of Ali Mountain. B. Five rare sites of Ali Mountain. C. Hills of Ali Mountain. D. An introduction to Ali Mountain. 57. What does the underlined word ―flourishing‖ in the fourth paragraph mean? A. Growing well. B. Surrounding. C. Disappearing. D. Dying. 58. What‘s the best time to appreciate the sea of clouds and the cherry blossom? A. April. B. February. C. August. D. December.
59. According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE? A. The place and time of the sunrise are the same despite the changes of the four seasons. B. The best place to view the sunrise is on the top of Tower Hill. C. The highest peak of Ali Mountain is Tower Hill with the height of 2,450 meters. D. The juniper has a history of more than 3,000 years, thus it is called Alishan Sacred Tree. B Mobile phone users will be able to charge their devices wirelessly for the first time from 2015. Fujitsu, the Japanese technology company, has created a system capable of charging quite a few portable electronic devices in the meanwhile, such as mobile phones, digital cameras and laptop computers without the need for cable connections. Electric cars users may also eventually be able to charge their vehicles wirelessly using the same technology according to Fujitsu, which presented a system at an Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers Conference at Osaka Prefecture University. Claiming to be the world‘s first of its kind, the technology works on the basis of the transmission of electricity using magnetic fields between the charger and the electronic device. The system enables wireless charging at distances of up to several metres, with the final aim of installing public ―charging spots‖ on the streets in order to enable easy charging around the clock. Scientists at Fujitsu Laboratories are planning to commercially sell products including the new wireless charging system as early as 2012 but did not make it clear how much they would cost. ―This technology makes it possible to add compact wireless charging functions into mobile phones and enabling several portable devices to be charged at the same time without any restrictions（限制）on their position in association with the charger,‖ the company said in a statement. The growing popularity of portable electronic devices ranging from iPads to e-readers is expected to fuel a boom in wireless recharging technology developments over the coming decade. Mobile phone users in Japan can currently fill up their batteries using disposable（一次性的） portable plug-in battery-operated devices -- available at most train stations and convenience stores -- although phone companies warn any use for too long can damage the phones. The new system displayed by Fujitsu, however, is significantly advanced and represents the next generation of portable recharging systems using highly tuned wireless technology. The company added, ―We are also looking at applying the results of this work to fields other than portable electronics, including power transmission between circuit boards or computer chips, and providing mobile charging systems for electric cars.‖ 60. The writer‘s purpose of writing the passage is . A. to analyze the current international situation B. to introduce a new technology applied to charging wirelessly C. to encourage customers to purchase the new charging devices D. to warn people against using disposable portable plug-in battery-operated devices 61. According to the new technology, electricity can be transmitted by . A. using batteries B. using the electronic devices C. using magnetic fields D. using disposable portable plug-in battery-operated devices 62. What is certain according to the passage is that . A. the charging system can serve one portable electronic device at a time B. all the convenience stores in Japan can provide the charging service now C. wireless charging works within a distance of up to several metres D. the new product doesn‘t look promising C
The story I would like to tell happened about a year ago. I accepted a position in a company. John, an acquaintance of mine, told me much about the job and took my curriculum vitae (简历) to his supervisor. I did not refer to him as a friend because at the time we did not take part in activities together outside of work, nor did our wives. The first week was fine. Nothing was obviously strange with John at first until the second week, when our communication began to get a little strange. John began making comments like ―you would have had to pay an employment agency several hundred dollars for a job like this‖. I soon forgot his words till the next day when he made another similar comment. Right then I started to really pay attention to what he meant. He acted as if I owed him money for helping me to get the job. He began to get short with me and I had only been there for two weeks. He was supposed to train me in building our e-mail servers and setting up the entire standard monitor software. Instead, he went through the process so fast that even an experienced worker could hardly keep up. He would not slow down or check whether I was with him or not. If there was something wrong with a server, he would just buzz through the solution and not stop to say anything like ―you might want to remember this.‖ I began to get very frustrated. By the third week I began to get tired of his condescension (傲慢). So I began to challenge him in a way that was only one to one. He would respond to a question of mine with a question or just make me repeat it, and then interrupt me. I began to hate him. Later I tried to avoid him as much as I could, so I wouldn‘t run into him. He stopped me one day and asked me what had happened. I told him he was very condescending in his tone and manner. He asked me, ―What can I do so that you will not feel like this way in the future?‖ I simply asked him to treat me with the same respect he would like to be treated with. He did it and we got along better gradually. I believed there was hope and eventually we would become friends and now we are. 63. Why didn‘t the author refer to John as a friend at first? A. They seldom spent free time together. B. They had only met for two weeks. C. Their wives didn‘t know each other. D. They had many disagreements on work. 64. What did John most probably mean by saying the underlined sentence? A. The company he and the author worked in was very good. B. The author was wise not to ask an employment agency for help. C. He had helped the author get a job without a penny. D. The author should have paid him several hundred dollars to express his gratitude. 65. Which of the following is TRUE according to the third and fourth paragraphs? A. John was an experienced and hard-working employee. B. The author was very slow in learning new things. C. John hardly lent an ear to what the author expressed. D. The author gradually got accustomed to his work. 66. What‘s the author‘s purpose of sharing his story? A. To express his dissatisfaction with John. B. To stress the importance of communication between colleagues. C. To remind us what problems can occur at work. D. To describe how to become qualified for a job. D John Blanchard stood up from the bench, straightened his Army uniform, and studied the crowd of people making their way through Grand Central Station. He looked for the girl whose heart he knew, but whose face he didn‘t, the girl with the rose. His interest in her had begun thirteen months before in a Florida library. Taking a book off the shelf he found himself intrigued, not with the words of the book, but with the notes penciled in
the margin. The soft handwriting reflected a thoughtful soul and insightful mind. In the front of the book, he discovered the previous owner‘s name, Miss Hollis Maynell. With time and effort he located her address. She lived in New York City. He wrote her a letter introducing himself and inviting her to correspond. The next day he was shipped overseas for service in World War II. During the next year and one month the two grew to know each other through the mail. Each letter was a seed falling on a fertile heart. A romance was budding. Blanchard requested a photograph, but she refused. She felt that if he really cared, it wouldn‘t matter what she looked like. When the day finally came for him to return from Europe, they scheduled their first meeting -- 7:00 PM at the Grand Central Station in New York. ―You‘ll recognize me,‖ she wrote, ―by the red rose I‘ll be wearing on my lapel.‖ So at 7:00 he was in the station looking for a girl whose heart he loved, but whose face he‘d never seen. I‘ll let Mr. Blanchard tell you what happened: A young woman was coming toward me, her figure long and slim. Her blonde hair lay back in curls from her delicate ears; her eyes were blue as flowers. Her lips and chin had a gentle firmness, and in her pale green suit she was like springtime come alive. I started toward her, entirely forgetting to notice that she was not wearing a rose. As I moved, a small, attractive smile curved her lips. ―Going my way, sailor?‖ she murmured. Almost uncontrollably I made one step closer to her, and then I saw Hollis Maynell. She was standing almost directly behind the girl. A woman well past 40, she had graying hair tucked under a worn hat. She was more than plump, her thick-ankled feet thrust into low-heeled shoes. The girl in the green suit was walking quickly away. I felt as though I was split in two, so keen was my desire to follow her, and yet so deep was my longing for the woman whose spirit had truly companioned me and upheld my own. And there she stood. Her pale, plump face was gentle and sensible, her gray eyes had a warm and kindly twinkle. I did not hesitate. My fingers gripped the small worn blue leather copy of the book that was to identify me to her. This would not be love, but it would be something precious, something perhaps even better than love, a friendship for which I had been and must ever be grateful. I squared my shoulders and saluted and held out the book to the woman, even though while I spoke I felt choked by the bitterness of my disappointment. ―I'm Lieutenant（中尉）John Blanchard, and you must be Miss Maynell. I am so glad you could meet me; may I take you to dinner?‖ The woman's face broadened into a tolerant smile. ―I don't know what this is about, son,‖ she answered, ―but the young lady in the green suit who just went by, she begged me to wear this rose on my coat. And she said if you were to ask me out to dinner, I should go and tell you that she is waiting for you in the big restaurant across the street. She said it was some kind of test!‖ It's not difficult to understand and admire Miss Maynell's wisdom. The true nature of a heart is seen in its response to the unattractive. ―Tell me whom you love,‖ Houssaye wrote, ―And I will tell you who you are.‖ 67. How did John Blanchard get to know Miss Hollis Maynell? A. They lived in the same city. B. They were both interested in literature. C. John came across Hollis in a Florida library. D. John knew Hollis's name from a library book. 68. Hollis refused to send Blanchard a photo because _____. A. she thought true love is beyond appearance B. she wasn't confident about her appearance C. she was only a middle-aged woman D. she had never taken any photo before they knew
69. When Blanchard went over to greet the woman, he was _____. A. disappointed but well-behaved B. satisfied and confident C. annoyed and bad-mannered D. shocked but inspired 70. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. Don't Judge a Book by its Cover B. The Symbol of Rose C. Love is blind D. A Test of Love

Commercial advertisement was once thought of as a technique of the marketers to inform the potential buyers about the availability of certain products. It was seen more as a medium to inform the buyers rather than persuade them to buy. The present day marketers see advertisement as a medium to damage the image of their competitors and their products. This indeed, is an undesirable and an immoral practice. Instead of speaking about their own products, these marketers speak about the drawbacks (often without any basics) of the competing products. People watching TV advertisements would notice that there has always been an advertisement war between the marketers of different consumer goods. A few such cases are given below. 1. Parachute Coconut Oil vs. V.V.D. Gold Some time back, the producer of V.V.D Gold Coconut Oil claimed in their TV advertisement that only their products was superior and the one sold in blue colour bottles (the reference was to Parachute coconut oil) was suitable only for un-natural hair. 2. Tata Salt vs. Captain Cook Tata salt was first iodised (碘处理) salt marketed by an Indian Company. It has been enjoying a good and steady market. Captain Cook, another producer of iodised salt, who entered the market later, had to adopt some strategy to get control of the market. The TV advertisement of Captain Cook stressed on ?Free flow‘ of their salt when transferred to a container. The producer of Tata Salt retaliated (报复) by saying that the claim of Captain Cook was a trick and those who were quality conscious should deal with it with caution. 3. Pepsi vs. Coco Cola Coca Cola was selected as the official soft drink for the Wills World Cricket 1996. When the cricket series was on, the marketers of Pepsi constantly advertised on TV. Their advertisement gave the idea that the cricketers preferred only Pepsi and as a matter of fact there was nothing official about it. 4. Horlicks vs. Complan Sometime back, the TV advertisement of Complan, a health drink directly attacked Horlicks, which has been in the market for several decades. The claim of Complan was that their brand (which according to them was Brand C) has a higher percentage of ingredients (材料) compared to Brand H (reference was nothing but to Horlicks). The above examples clearly show how the technique of advertisement is misused by some marketers to ruin the image of their competitors. This, certainly, is not a healthy trend. Any marketer should only speak about his products and not about his competitors‘ products. The awareness of consumers has certainly increased over the years and they are no longer easily taken in. There are many consumer products like salt, oil shaving blades etc. But one thing for sure is that offering the same product in a different container will not make the product different. Mass media like Radio, Television and newspaper should not allow advertisements that tell lies. Legal regulations, in this regard, should also be made stricter.

And he went to a store. ―How much do they cost?‖ he asked the clerk. ―That depends,‖ said the salesman. ―They range from US$2 to US$2,000.‖ As he was unwilling to spend a lot of money on it, the man was interested in the US$2 model, and asked, ―Can I have a look at the US$2 model?‖ The clerk put the device around the man‘s neck. ―You just stick this button in your ear and run this little string down to your pocket,‖ he instructed. ―How does it work?‖ the man asked. ―For US$2, it doesn‘t work,‖ the salesman replied. ―But when people see it on you, they will pay attention. And listen to you!‖ As we all know, most communication problems are not due to people talking too softly. Unfortunately, it is because we are not always good listeners. Do you know that people will pay hundreds of dollars an hour, for no other reason than to have someone listen to them? We all need someone to listen to us, and to listen well to people is to respond to a great human need.

After reading the story, the thing that struck me is that we should spend more time listening to others – one of the most important things that we can do in communication. Listening to others brings about better understanding. I learned that from my mother. Once she took me to lunch; instead of asking questions about my grades and school life, she just sat there and listened. Her silence worked so well that it actually worried me. She told me that through my words she saw my desire to do well in school, to have better relationships with others and to lead a life in which I could feel happier about myself. Since then, our relationship has been improved. Therefore, we should master the art of listening and will find effective ways to communicate with others. Let‘s take the opportunity to remember what really matters and communicate with others from the heart.
