A A man walked into a restaurant and asked for a glass of water. Then the girl in the restaurant pulled out a gun and shot him dead. Why? People asked to give reasonable explanation for the strange happening. All kinds of suggestions were made. She was able to recognize him as a dangerous prisoner who ran away from the prison; she thought he was to rob her; she misheard what he said; asking for a glass of water had a special meaning for her and so on. All these explanations showed that the gun was used on purpose(有目的) to harm the man. The idea was easily accepted. In fact, the explanation was that the man had an attack of hiccups(严重打嗝). It so happened that the girl in the restaurant knew that a great and sudden fear could get rid of hiccups. But she didn’t know the gun happened to be loaded(上子弹) that day. 36. The man asked for a glass of water because ______. A. he was too thirsty B. he was walked into a restaurant C. he wanted to kill himself D. he was having an attack of hiccups 37.

Just a Little Smile Mark was walking home from school one day when he saw the boy in front of him fall over and drop all of the books he was carrying, along with two sweaters, a basketball and a walkman. Mark stopped and helped the boy pick up these things. Since they were going the same way, he helped to carry some of his things. As they walked, Mark knew that the boy’s name was Bill, that he loved computer games, basketball and history, and that he was having lots of troubles with his other subjects and that he had just broken up with his girlfriend. They arrived at Bill’s home first and Mark was invited(邀请) in for a Coke and to watch some television. The afternoon passed happily with a few laughs and some small talk, and then Mark went home. They often saw each other at school, had lunch together once or twice, and then they both finished middle school. They ended up in the same high school where they sometimes saw and talked with each other over the years. At last just three weeks before they finished high school, Bill asked Mark if they could talk. Bill asked Mark if he still remembered the day years ago when they had first met. “Did you ever think why I was carrying so many things home that day?” asked Bill. “You see, I cleaned out my locker(锁柜) because I didn’t want to leave anything for anyone else. I had put away some of my mother’s sleeping pills and I was going home to kill myself. But after we spent some time together talking and laughing, I began to understand that if I killed myself, I would have missed that time and so many others
that might follow. So you see, Mark, when you picked up those books that day, you did a lot more. You saved my life.” 39. When Mark met him the first time, Bill was going _______. A. to have a basketball game B. to his classroom C. to see Mark D. back home 40. From what Bill was carrying, we can know that he _______.

A. knew he could save Bill’s life B. knew who Bill was and wanted to help him C. didn’t know why he was going to help him D. didn’t know what he was doing was very important to Bill C The idea of rain making is almost as old as man, but it was not until 1946 that man succeeded in making rain. In ancient(古代的) times, rainmakers claimed(声称) to be able to bring rain by many methods; dancing, singing, killing various kinds of living creatures(including humans), and blowing a stream of water into the air from a kind of pipe. More recently, some rainmakers claimed to make rain by shooting guns, causing explosions, or burning chemicals, the smoke of which was supposed to cause rain to fall. These rainmakers asked for as much as 1, 000 dollars to make an inch of rain. One was so effective that he was almost hanged. He was believed to have caused a twenty-inch rain in southern California that flooded that land, killed several people, and did millions of dollars’ worth of damage. Before 1946, rainmakers were either liars or honest people who happened to have good luck. Scientific rain making was started in that year by Vincent J. Schaefer, a scientist at the laboratories of the General Electric Company in New York State. His success was the result of a lucky accident that changed years of failure into victory. 44. One rainmaker was almost hanged because ______. A. he did not make rain at all B. he asked for too much money C. people thought he caused too much rain D. he killed several people 45. Which of the following methods can make rain? A. Killing pigs and sheep. B. Blowing a stream of water into the air from a kind of pipe.
C. Shooting guns or causing explosions. D. None of the above is right. 46. Who was the first rainmaker succeeding in making rain? A. The one who caused a twenty-inch rain in southern California. B. Before 1946, a rainmaker who happened to have good luck.. C. Vincent J. Schaefer, in 1946. D. The passage doesn’t tell us his or her name. D Another Way of Thinking “Failure” In one way of thinking, failure is part of life. In another way, failure may be a way towards success. The “spider-story” is often told. Robert Bruce, the leader of the Scots in the 13th century, was hiding in a cave from the English. He watched a spider spinning a web. The spider tried to reach across a rough place in the rock. He tried six times to span(跨过) the gap. On the seventh time he made it and went on to spin his web. Bruce is said to have taken heart and to have gone to defeat the English. Edison, the inventor of the light bulb(灯泡), made hundreds of models that failed before he found the right way to make one. Once he was asked why he kept on trying to make a new type of battery when he had failed so often, he replied, “Failure? I have no failure. Now I know 50 000 ways it won’t work.” So what? First, always think about your failure. What caused it? Were conditions right? Were you in top form yourself? What can you change so things will go right next time? Second, is the goal you’re trying to reach the right one? Try to do some thinking about what your real goals may be. Think about this question: “If I do succeed in this, where will it get me?” This may help you prevent failure in things you shouldn’t be doing anyway. The third thing to bear in mind about failure is that it’s a part of life. Learn to live with yourself, even though you maybe have failed. 47. This passage deals with _______. A. failure and success B. two sides of failure C. the “spider-story” D. the invention of light bulb 48. In the first paragraph the writer tells mainly about _______. A. the value of failure B. how people fail C. famous failures D. how not to fail 49. Robert Bruce is put in the passage to show that _______. A. failure must come before success B. we should face failure directly and overcome difficulties C. nature will help us if we let it D. people who fail have plenty of companies 50. The thing the writer does NOT tell you to do to deal with failure is to _______. A. check out your goals to see if they are right for you B. think about failure as part of your life C. think about failure to find out what went wrong

But along with intense competition, parents have less time to consider children’s needs in all-round. One method to solve this contradiction is to give children some pocket money. Pocket money is useful to children. But whether the children are considerable enough to make correct use of this money? There are two viewpoints about the pocket money. Some people think that giving children pocket money will make them become luxurious. Others think that will not lead to such disadvantage. In my opinion, both of them are partially reasonable. Someone believes that giving children pocket money really has many advantages. With pocket money, children can buy their daily necessities such as pencils, little toys, and snack food they like. It will give children a certain freedom to select what they want, make them aware rules of the equivalent exchange. Since time to parents is very precious, giving pocket money to children help them to save time spent in shopping, but used in busy working and earning money. Others insist that there are undoubtedly some disadvantages in spending pocket money. First, young children do not know how to use pocket money appropriately, they possibly consume all the money to buy expensive merchandise that they like, and then ask for extra money from their parents. Some parents cosset their children, and always give them a large amount of pocket money. Such conditions will make children become more and more prodigal. Second, since adults do not supervise the procedure of shopping, children could probably buy something that is not suitable for their age, such as adult magazines. Judging these two viewpoints above-mentioned, I think that parents should give their children a limited amount of pocket money. There are some preconditions: the amount of pocket money must be finite; the parents should instruct their children how to use the pocket money moderately and what is suitable to them; for a costly merchandise, parents themselves should take children to buy it. With these preconditions, pocket money will do no harm to their children. Title: Giving Children Pocket Money Someone is in (2)_________of giving pocket money.

On behalf of our group, I’d like to give a brief summary of our discussion on the topic “Is Recycling Textbooks a Good Suggestion?” As we know, when high school students graduate from school, their textbooks are thrown away, which are still in good condition. What a great waste it is! A suggestion has been put forward that we should recycle the textbooks. Some students in my group agree to this suggestion. For one thing, recycling textbooks can save a lot of natural resources, which are used to make textbooks. And it can also save plenty of family expenses. For another, in western countries, recycling textbooks is very popular and it gives us a good example. But some others have different opinions about it, for the content of the textbooks are often renewed. What’s more, it is not proper to make notes in the textbooks. But in my opinion, this is a wonderful idea because this will do good to both the government and the families.
