A few months before I was born, my Dad met a stranger who was new to our small town. From the beginning, Dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live with our family. The stranger was quickly accepted and was around to welcome me into the world a few months later. As I grew up, I never questioned his place in my family. In my young mind, he had a special position. My parents were complementary instructors： Mom taught me the words, and Dad taught me to obey them. But the stranger... He was our storyteller. He would keep us spellbound for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and comedies(喜剧). If I wanted to know anything about politics，history or science，he always knew the answers about the past, understood the present and even seemed able to predict the future! He made me laugh, and he made me cry. The stranger never stopped talking, but Dad didn't seem to mind.
I now know that my early concepts about relationship were influenced strongly by the stranger. Time after time, he opposed the values of my parents, yet he was seldom blamed...and NEVER asked to leave. More than fifty years have passed since the stranger moved in with our family. He has blended(融合) right in but is not nearly as fascinating as he was at first. Still, if you were to walk into my parent's room today, you would still find him sitting over in his corner, waiting for someone to listen to him talk and watch him draw his pictures. His name? We just call him...“TV”. He has a younger sister now. We call her “Computer”. 51．The stranger can do all the following things EXCEPT that he can ________. A. tell us some funny stories B. reject our proposals(提议) C. influence the children's character D. predict the future 52．The underlined word “spellbound” in Paragraph 2 most probably means ________. A. concentrated B. puzzled C. fascinated D. astonished 53．What can we learn from the last three paragraphs of the passage? A. The computer is more advanced and has gained greater popularity. B. Old as he is，we like the stranger best. C. The TV set is out of fashion and often breaks down. D. We decide to throw the TV set away immediately.
Sushi is a kind of food made with a mixture of cooked or raw fish, vegetables, and rice. Although Sushi is most commonly considered to have its origin in Japan, it actually began in China during the 7th Century. At that time, any fish caught had to be preserved. Raw fish was cleaned and then pressed between layers of heavy salt. After a couple of months, the whole process was complete. Over time, a discovery was made that by rolling the fish in rice that had been soaked in vinegar the fish was easily fermented (发酵) in a few days rather than months. The rice was then thrown away and the fish was eaten. However, with a food shortage, people began consuming the rice as well as the fish and thus, Sushi today as we know was born. However, in the 1800s, a famous chef by the name of Yohei created two styles of Sushi—one called Edo, and the second, Osaka, for two cities. Sushi is usually consumed with hot green tea. Also, Gari is offered free and eaten between bites to create a better taste. Two kinds of sauce are usually available: one is soy sauce, which is poured on most kinds of Sushi; the other is a thick sweet sauce used on eel (鳗鱼). Sushi has taken the world by storm and today is a multi-billion dollar industry. Its popularity continues to rise because people are looking for healthy food that is quick and easy to make. With such unbelievable popularity as well as the health benefits of eating Sushi, it is likely that this food will continue to be a part of everyday life for many more centuries to come. 54. Two kinds of Sushi, Edo and Osaka, were probably named after _______.
A. the chef’s name B. their birthplaces C. the name of fish D. some kinds of food 55. When people eat Sushi, Gari is used to _______. A. keep Sushi last long B. make green tea better C. digest Sushi more quickly D. make Sushi more delicious 56. Why do people like Sushi today? A. It is cheap and delicious. B. It is served with free Gari. C. It is beneficial to people’s health. D. It is easy to be kept for a long time. 57. What can be the best title for the text? A. Delicious Sushi and Its Origin B. How to Make Delicious Sushi C. Yohei and Two Styles of Sushi D. The Birthplace of Sushi—China
Two friends have an argument that breaks up their friendship forever, even though neither one can remember how the whole thing got started. Such sad events happen over and over in high schools across the country. In fact, according to an official report on youth violence, "In our country today, the greatest threat to the lives of children and adolescents is not disease or starvation or abandonment, but the terrible reality of violence". Given that this is the case, why aren't students taught to manage conflict the way they are taught to solve math problems, drive cars, or stay physically fit? First of all, students need to realize that conflict is unavoidable. A report on violence among middle school and high school students indicates that most violent incidents between students begin with a relatively minor insult (侮辱). For example, a fight could start over the fact that one student eats a peanut butter sandwich each lunchtime. Laughter over the sandwich can lead to insults, which in turn can lead to violence. The problem isn't in the sandwich, but in the way students deal with the conflict. Once students recognize that conflict is unavoidable, they can practice the golden rule of conflict resolution (解决):stay calm. Once the student feels calmer, he or she should choose words that will calm the other person down as well. Rude words, name-calling, and accusation only add fuel to the emotional fire. On the other hand, soft words spoken at a normal sound level can put out the fire before it explodes out of control. After both sides have calmed down, they can use another key strategy for conflict resolution; listening. Listening allows the two sides to understand each other. One person should describe his or her side, and the other person should listen without interrupting. Afterward, the listener can ask non-threatening questions to clarify the speaker's position. Then the two people should change roles. Finally, students need consider what they are hearing. This doesn't mean trying to figure out what's wrong with the other person. It means understanding what the real issue is and what both sides are trying to accomplish. For example, a shouting match over a peanut butter sandwich might happen because one person thinks the other person is unwilling to try new things. Students need to ask themselves questions such as these:
How did this start? What do I really want? What am I afraid off? As the issue becomes clearer, the conflict often simply becomes smaller. Even if it doesn't, careful thought helps both sides figure out a mutual solution. There will always be conflict in schools, but that doesn't mean there needs to be violence. After students in Atlanta started a conflict resolution program, according to Educators for Social Responsibility, "64 percent of the teachers reported less physical violence in the classroom; 75 percent of the teachers reported an increase in student cooperation; and 92 percent of the students felt better about themselves". Learning to resolve conflicts can help students deal with friends,. teachers. parents, bosses, and coworkers. In that way, conflict resolution is a basic life skill that should be taught in schools across the country. 58. This article is mainly about______. A. the lives of school children B. the cause of arguments in schools C. how to analyze youth violence D. how to deal with school conflicts 59. From Paragraph 2 we can learn that________ . A. violence is more likely to occur at lunchtime B. a small conflict can lead to violence C. students tend to lose their temper easily D. the eating habit of a student is often the cause of a fight 60. Why do students need to ask themselves the questions stated in Paragraph 5? A. To find out who to blame. B. To get ready to buy new things. C. To make clear what the real issue is. D. To figure out how to stop the shouting match. 61. After the conflict resolution program was started in Atlanta, it was found that______. A. there was a decrease in classroom violence B. there was less student cooperation in the classroom C. more teachers fell better about themselves in schools D. the teacher-student relationship greatly improved
Festivals play an important role in a culture’s identity．I can’t think of a better way of appreciating a new culture than by taking part in one of its festivals.

Even if you know the material, you can still get the problem wrong. Knowing how to go through your math test and check your
work can save you from handing in a test full of mistakes that can be avoided. 66 Write it out You can also check a math problem by writing everything out on paper. 67 Writing out math problems reduces your chances of missing anything to the lowest possible level, which is a common cause of incorrect answers. 68 Make sure your answers work by doing the opposite procedure of what your problem calls for, including the answer you got the first time around. In other words, you would use the opposite of this addition problem—subtraction ( 减法 )—to determine whether or not your answer is the correct one. Plugging in You may find that a variable(变量) isn’t good enough or have a problem where you have to solve for a variable. 69 This is the only real way to assure yourself that the answer you’ve found is correct. Check for a reasonable answer 70 For example, if you get an answer in the millions and you know it should be in the thousands, you’ve likely misplaced a point. Go back through the work on your paper to make sure all of your formulas and calculations are correct. If everything looks okay, do the problem again and compare the result of the second try to what you’ve got on the first try. A. Do the opposite B. Correct the answers C. Plug the variable in the equation (方程) to check it out. D. Therefore you’ll improve your grades, as well as your math skills. E. It also helps you to figure out everything after you have already finished the test. F. If the result of a problem seems to make no sense, it indicates that the answer is incorrect. G. This helps you to know what information you have and what information you need to solve.

What’s in her hand? Is it a gift? She must have stopped for a gift and that’s why she is late. Text 7 W: Can I help you? M: Yes, (8)I need to apply for a parking permit. W: Are you a professor? M: What? Are you kidding? I’m only 22 years old! W: Yes, I am kidding. But don’t you know only professors and students with disabilities can apply for parking permits? M: Yes, I know. I have a disability.(9)My hip was broken last year. And I can’t walk well. W: Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know. M: It’s alright. You didn’t see me walk to the desk. W: Here is the application form. I also need to see your student ID and your permission letter from the university. M: Here you are. W: Thank you. Text 8 ：M: Hi, Mary, how’s your new flat? W: It’s great. I really like it. M: How big is it? W: It’s one big room, and it has a bathroom and a small kitchen, too. M: How far is it from the office? W: (10)It’s only about 10 minutes. M: 10 minutes by bus or by car? W: (11)On foot. I walked to work this morning. I was 10 minutes early. M: You are lucky. I was 10 minutes late. W: What happened? M: All the buses came late.
W: What did Lily say? M: She was late too. W: What happened to her? M: (12)She took the train, and it was late, too. W: Well, then, you’re really lucky after all. But what are you going to do tomorrow? M: (13)I’ll start out 15 minutes earlier. Text 9 M: There never seems to be enough of me to go around. I wish there could be another me. W: What are you saying? M: (14)I read an article. It said scientists created a clone sheep. (15)I had a dream last night about someone cloning me. And I could do so many things. One of me went to work. The other stayed at home to clean the house and even cook dinner. W: It is strange to see you cooking dinner. M: Very funny! But back to the science topic, it is amazing to see science advance so rapidly. W: Now, they are studying how to copy human DNA. We may see two of you. M: You are right. But realistically, I like having only one of me. (16)We already have a problem with over-population. I don’t think we need to have two of everybody. W: I must say, it all sounds interesting. I can’t imagine what they will think of next. Text 10 W: One-Day Course: Introduction to Complex Systems Date: (17)Sunday, October 6.
