sent to me on October 18. That night one leg of the table broke while my wife was putting our dinner on it. It fell on one of the chair, and that broke, too. Our $ 2.50 steak landed on the floor, and the dog ate it. I spoke to the salesmen who had sold me the table and the chairs. He told me to write you a letter. I wrote you on October 20, saying that I was not going to pay for the furniture. On October 21 some men came and took it back to the store. Please do something about your records. I do not want to receive another bill for the furniture which I returned. Yours truly Albertson 21.

B “Folk singers are more like poets than singers,” Li Yahe, a music businessman, once told China Youth Daily. That saying perfectly describes Zhang Lei, the 34-year-old champion of the fourth “Voice of China” singing competition, which ended on Oct 7. Critics thought Zhang’s success as a victory for folk singers. The Voice of China used to attach great importance to singing skills and vocal techniques, which are not necessarily what folk singers are good at. “Folk songs are more about emotions and storytelling,” said Li. Folk is one of the oldest musical styles. It dates back to ancient times, when people sang about their everyday lives and the society around them. A powerful comeback Folk music became popular again in the Western world in the 1960s. During social revolutions, many young Westerners turned to the simple rhythms of folk. Pioneers included US singer Bob Dylan, whose songs are reflections of some social issues like the Vietnam War. Singers at that time used traditional folk instruments like the banjo, the upright bass, the mandolin and the piano. In the late 1970s, folk music was introduced to Taiwan. The rise of singers like Lo Tayu and Chyi Yu popularized folk music, particularly among young Chinese people. At that time, folk tunes were based on simple song structures, with pleasant chord
B. angry. D. calm.
progression and pretty lyrics, just like during old times. But they focused more on the dreams and sorrow of youth than on politics. This continued to be the case when the folk “wave” swept Chinese mainland in the 1990s. Folk pioneers Sadly, it didn’t last long in China. Folk gave way to pop in the late 1990s, when people started living more fast-paced lives. But that didn’t mean folk music had disappeared from the music world entirely. “The drop in the popularity of folk songs is because the business mode of the music industry is outdated, not because of the music itself,” folk singer Song Ke once said. He was right. Recent years have seen folk songs gaining popularity, with the appearance of singers like Li Jian and Song Dongye. “The popularity of the Internet has shocked the traditional profit model in music industry,” Lu Zhongqiang, manager of 13-Month, a music recording and publishing company, told Tencent Entertainment. “Not-so-well-known music starts showing i ts strength when the production of mainstream music is declining,” he added. 24. Which would be the best title of the passage? A. The History of Folk Music. C. The Folk M usic Industry. A. the popularity of folk music. C. the tradition of folk pioneers. 26. Which statement is true according to the passage? A. The Voice of China is very popular among young Chinese people. B. Folk music once was a way to voice opinions about social issues. C. Folk songs are more about expressing emotions than storytelling. D. Outdated music mode is what leads to the decline of folk songs. 27. Which word can best describe the attitude of Lu Zhongqiang towards folk music? A. Objective C. Critical. C Every people uses its own special word to show its ideas and feelings. Some of these expressions are commonly used for many years. Others are popular for just a short time. One such American expression is “Where’s the beef?” It is used when something is not as good as it is said to be. In the early 1980s “Where’s the beef?” was one of the most popular expressions in the United States. It seemed as if everyone using it at the time. Beef, of course, is the meat from a cow, and food is more popular in America than a hamburger made from beef. In the 1960s a businessman named Ray began building small restaurants that sold hamburgers at a low price. Ray called this “McDonald’s”. Ray
B. Folk Music Pioneers D. The Voice of China B. the focus of folk music. D. the new model of pop music.
25. The underlined world “it” in the last but four paragraph means________.
B. Confident. D. Worried
became one of the richest businessmen at last in America. Other business people watched his success. Some of them opened their own hamburger restaurants. One company called “Wendy’s” said its hamburgers were bigger than those sold by McDonald’s or anyone else. The Wendy’s Company began to use the expression “Where’s the beef?” to make people know that Wendy’s hamburgers were the biggest. The Wendy’s television advertisement showed three old women eating hamburgers. The bread that covered the meat was very big, but inside there was only a bit of meat. One of the women said she would not eat a hamburger with such a little piece of beef. “Where’s the beef?” she shouted in a funny way. The advertisement for Wendy’s hamburger restaurants was a success. As we said, it seemed everyone began using the expression “Where’s the beef?” 28. _______ started McDonald’s restaurant. A. McDonald B. Ray C. Wendy D. Three old women 29. Other people wanted to open hamburger restaurants because they thought _______. A. they could sell hamburgers at a low price B. beef was very popular in America C. they could make a lot of money A. by a television advertisement D. hamburgers were easy to make B. with many old women eating hamburgers D. at the McDonald’s restaurant 30.

B. the hamburgers are not as good as they are said to be. C. Wendy’s beef is the biggest one in American restaurant. D. it is used when something is not as good as it is said to be. D When her five daughters were young, Helene An always told them that there was strength in unity ( 团结 ). To show this, she pick up one chopstick, taking it as one person. Then she easily broke it into two pieces. Next, she tied several chopsticks together, taking them as a family. She showed the girls it was hard to break the tied chopsticks. This lesson about family unity stayed with the daughters as they grew up Helene An and her family own a large restaurant business in California. However, when Helene and her husband Danny left their home in Vietnam in 1975, they didn't have much money. They moved their family to San Francisco. There they joined Danny's mother, Diana, who owned a small Italian sandwich shop. Soon afterwards, Helene and Diana changed the sandwich shop into a small Vietnamese restaurant. The five daughters helped in the restaurant when they were young. However, Helene did not want her daughters to always work in the family business because she thought it was too hard. Eventually the girls all graduated from college and went away to work for themselves,
31. We can learn from the passage that the expression “Where’s the beef?” means that
but one by one, the daughters returned to work in the family business. They opened new restaurants in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Even though family members sometimes disagreed with each other, they worked together to make the business successful. Daughter Elisabeth explains, "Our mother taught us that to succeed we must have unity, and to have unity we must have peace. Without the strength of the family, there is no business.” With three generations of Ans working together, now the Ans' business makes more than $20 million each year. Although they began with a small restaurant, they had big dreams, and they worked together. Now they are a big success. 32. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A.

Some of them are even dying out. The reasons are as follows: To start with, people have been cutting down tress for building, causing some animals to lose their habitats. Besides, farmers use too much pesticide, which endangers the lives of some animals. In addition, to make money, some people have been killing rare wild animals. In my opinion, it’s time we took immediate measures to change the situation. We shouldn’t cut down trees without permission. Instead, we are supposed to plant more trees to protect the animals’ living conditions. At the same time, more nature reserves are expected to be set up. I believe as long as we take action immediately, we will live in harmony with animals and life will become better.

As I said just now, there are just too many things to do in my spare time.
