(A) A student was one day taking a walk with a professor. As they went along, they saw lying in the path a pair of old shoes, which they supposed belonged to a (an) 21 man working in a field nearby. The student turned to the professor, saying, ―Let‘s hide his shoes, and then we‘ll 22 ourselves behind those bushes, and wait to see his 23 when he cannot find them.‖ ―My young friend,‖ answered the professor, ―we should never 24 ourselves at the expense of the poor. You‘re rich. Why not use a little of your wealth to help the poor man and get pleasure this way. Put a coin into each shoe, and then we‘ll go behind the bushes and watch how the 25 affects him.‖ The student did as the professor instructed. The poor man soon finished his work, and came across the 26 to the path where he‘d left his coat and shoes. While putting on his coat, he put his foot into one of his shoes; but 27 something hard, he bent down to see what it was, and found the coin. 28 and wonder were seen upon his face. He 29 the coin, turned it round, and looked at it again and again. He then looked around but saw nobody. He now put the money into his pocket, and went on to 30 on the other shoe; but his surprise was 31 on finding the other coin. He was so 32 that he fell upon his knees, and let out a loud cry of 33 , in which he spoke of his sick wife and his 34 children and the importance of the money to them.

My younger brother and I run to every room to collect the tall 36 and place them in the living room, a few candles in each corner. I take one to the coffee table to use to 37 .

（A） The Date’s Off Thanks to my sheltered upbringing, I once thought the world consisted only of people who, like me, respected use-by dates. That is, until I met my husband. He thinks that I am ―fussy‖ and ―overcautious‖ when it comes to my food rules. I, on the other hand, believe that I‘m just doing what food producers advise. And the food that I am strictest about is milk. I believe that milk should spend its entire existence going from fridge to fridge. I figure that each bottle of
milk has a total of about five minutes that it can safely spend unrefrigerated. I think those five minutes are all taken up by the time it takes to remove a carton of milk from the supermarket and drive it to its new home. My husband begs to differ. While he also believes that milk has a limited time it can spend outside of a fridge, that period is, oh, around half a day. So, whenever we go shopping he gets upset when I make him wait in line with everything bar the milk. Only when the cashier is beginning to check through our items do I dash back to the supermarket refrigerator and grab our dairy items. I wish there was an express counter that people could quickly pass through to minimise the milk‘s out-of-fridge exposure time. When my husband and I first moved in together, I was like the food police, doing daily fridge checks and throwing out all old items. But soon I got sick of constantly hearing, ―What happened to that stew thing? I could have sworn there was still some left.‖ So I loosened up a little; I decided to live on the wild side. And I was doing OK. That is, until I noticed there was green, mouldy (发霉的) stuff growing in our fridge. You see, my husband also believes that any food is savable. The cheese is getting mouldy? Ah, easy, just cut the green bits off and the rest is good as gold. The pasta sauce is sprouting fungus as big as a head of broccoli? Scoop off the top layer and the rest is fine. After leaving him on fridge-cleanout duty for a while, I imagined that we had become the topic of a terrifying news report ―They may seem like an everyday couple, but what lives in their fridge would sicken anyone. Join me tonight as I enter the Deadly Zone…‖ the news reporter would say. And so I have regained my food-policing role – and my husband does admit that, even though food gets thrown out a little earlier than he would like, he‘s feeling a lot less sick lately. And he no longer argues with me at the supermarket checkout as I race back to get the milk. 51. The writer was brought up to believe _______. A. there existed people who respected use-by dates just like her B. all the people in the world took use-by dates very seriously C. few people she knew fell sick from food poisoning D. her future husband would respect her living style 52. The purpose of sharing the experience of the couple buying milk in the supermarket is _______. A. to demonstrate how cautious she is about food safety B. to show how foolish her husband thinks she is C. to argue that there should be a special express checkout counter D. to advise people should not take the milk before they are ready to pay 53. Which is closest in meaning to the underlined word ―bar‖ in Para. 4? A. including B. like C. before D. except 54. Why did the writer decide to ―live on the wild side‖ like her husband? A. Because she was tired of her husband‘s complaints. B. Because she didn‘t want to be like the food police. C. Because it turned out that the food in the fridge didn‘t go bad easily. D. Because her husband could always save mouldy food. 55. What is the writer‘s tone in the article? A. Ironic. B. Formal. C. Humorous. D. Serious. (B) It is common sense that children who walk or cycle to school have a lower risk of obesity than those by car. But driving your youngsters to the gates could also cause their academic work to suffer. Researchers found children who were driven to school, or who took public transport, had poorer concentration levels than those who took a more active route such as walking or cycling.
The joint study by researchers at two Danish universities found that regular exercise could advance a student up to half a year in their studies. Children who were driven to school, or who took public transport, performed less well in a test measuring concentration levels, than those who had walked or cycled. The results surprised the researchers, as their hypothesis originally focused on the effects of eating breakfast and lunch on pupils‘ ability to concentrate. ―The exercise a student uses to transport him or herself to school is reflected in the level of concentration he/she has about four hours later,‖ Niels Egelund, a co-author of the report said. ―The results showed that having breakfast and lunch has an impact, but not very much compared to having exercise.‖ ―As a third-grade pupil, if you exercise and bike to school, your ability to concentrate increases to the equivalent of someone half a year further in their studies,‖ he added. In the survey, taken by 19,527 pupils aged five to 19 years old, participants were asked about their exercise habits and were then given a basic test measuring their concentration. ―Most people know the feeling of being refreshed after having exercised, but it is surprising that the effect lasts for so long,‖ Egelund said. Previous research from the University of Montreal has found that exercise helps our brains make better use of oxygen. It may also reduce mental tiredness and sharpen your thinking in between gym sessions. And last week Swedish researchers said they found that muscular boys will live longer than their weaker friends. And even if they are overweight by the time they get to adulthood, those with stronger muscles tend to live longer. 56. It can be inferred from the passage that ___________________. A. concentration is very important in deciding students‘ academic work B. those cycle to school do worse than those who go to school on foot C. students who are stronger can do better in their academic work D. people who are overweight tend to live shorter than those thinner people 57. Originally, researchers were attempting to prove that _________________. A. having exercise helped to improve students‘ concentration B. eating breakfast and lunch could improve students‘ concentration C. taking public transportation helped to improve students‘ concentration D. having stronger muscles contributed to students‘ concentration on study 58. What does the underlined word ―equivalent‖ in Paragraph 6 probably mean? A. higher level B. similar talent C. less concentrated D. same level 59. According to Niels Egelund, what is surprising? A. Exercise helps us to make better use of oxygen. B. Muscular boys live longer than the weaker ones. C. The effect of exercise can last for such a long time. D. Biking or walking can sharpen people‘s thinking. 60. With this passage, the author is trying to convince students of ____________. A. the importance of public transportation B. the benefit of taking exercise C. the significance of concentration D. the effect of having breakfast
(C) A Low-Carbon Economy (LCE) or Low-Fossil-Fuel Economy (LFFE) is a concept that refers to an economy which releases the minimal amount of greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere, especially the most dangerous greenhouse, carbon dioxide. A carbon footprint is "the total amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) produced by an organization, event or product". For simplicity of reporting, it is often expressed in terms of the amount of carbon dioxide, or its equivalent of other GHGs, released in doing the activity or making the product. A new purpose-built office complex that will offer environmentally friendly accommodation across 66,250 square feet is under construction in Wales. It is reported that the Cardiff Waterside Project is a ? 140 million construction project and will aim to offer business in the area an environment that has a lower carbon footprint than traditional office space. A one-year carbon gas reduction program proposed by China's Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) was started here Wednesday, on World Earth Day, to encourage citizens nationwide to adjust their lifestyle and live a "low-carbon" lifestyle. A low-carbon lifestyle covers many aspects of modern life, such as transportation, home heating, and holiday travel. The goal is to do these activities in a way that produces the minimum amount of carbon dioxide possible. 61. What does the text intend to do? A. To define the green house effect. B. To teach humans a lesson. C. To appeal to us to focus on environment D. To explain some definitions related to low carbon. 62. When was the‖ carbon gas reduction program‖ released most probably? A. In 2009. B. In late March. C. A decade ago. D. Unknown. 63. A ― Low Carbon Economy‖ includes the following except _______. A. Eco-travel. B. To take the public means of transport C. Car-pooling. D. To become a couch potato. 64. As used in the last paragraph, what does the underlined word ?proposed‘ mean? A. To put forward. B. To nominate. C. To offer a marriage. D. To plan. 65. From the last paragraph we can infer that the Chinese government‘s attitude to ―low carbon life‖ is _________. A. neutral B. doubtful C. supportive D. self-confident
