A Susan Williams went to a boarding school. Here is one of the letters she wrote to her parents from the school. Dear Mom and Dad, I’m afraid I have some very bad news for you. I have been very naughty and the school principal（校 长）is very angry with me. She is going to write to you. You must come and take me away from here. She does not want me in the school any longer. The trouble started last night when I was smoking a cigarette in bed．This is against the rules, of course. We are not supposed to smoke at all. As I was smoking, I heard footsteps coming towards the room. I did not want a teacher to catch me smoking, so I threw the cigarette away. Unfortunately, the cigarette fell into the waste-paper basket, which caught fire. There was a curtain near the waste-paper basket which caught fire, too. Soon the whole room was burning. The principal phoned for the fire department. The school is a long way from the town and by the time the fire department arrived, the whole school was in flames. Many of the girls are in the hospital. The principal says that the fire was all my fault and you must pay for the damage. She will send you a bill for about a million dollars. I am very sorry about this. Much love, Susan. P.S. None of the above is true, but I have failed my exams. I just want you to know how bad things could have been! ★36．Susan wrote home ________. A．to tell her parents about the fire B．to ask for a million dollars C．to tell her parents she had failed her exams D．to tell her parents she had to leave school 37．The principal was angry with Susan for the reason that ________.

★39．How true was the letter before the P.S.? A．Partly true. B．All true. C．Completely untrue D．The story doesn’t really tell us. B 2 If you can only do three things, do these to get a good night’s sleep, says Helene A. Emsellem, , director of the Center for Sleep && Wake Disorders in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and an associate 4 clinical professor of neurology at George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, DC. , 1. Allow one hour before bedtime for a relaxing activity. Watching the news or answering e-mails 6 does not count! Better choices are reading or listening to soft music. 2. If your mind is relaxed but your body is tense, do some low-intensity stretches and exercises to relax your muscles, especially those in your upper body, neck, and shoulders. Before you get into bed, use light weights (3 to 5 pounds for women, 5 to 10 pounds for men) to calmly exercise these muscles. Do one set of 8 to 10 repetitions of a basic exercise for each upper body muscle. We call this automassage. 3. Allow at least three hours between dinner and bedtime. The brain does not sleep well on a full stomach. If you know that you have a busy day planned the following day, have your big meal at lunchtime and a lighter meal as early as possible in the evening. If you find you are still hungry before bedtime, try one of the many protein-enriched power bars (without chocolate) for your bedtime snack. 40. The writer’s main purpose is to ______.

D Shyness is the cause of much unhappiness for a great many people. Shy people are anxious and self-conscious; that is, they are over concerned with their own appearance and actions. Worrisome thoughts are constantly occurring in their minds; what kind of impression am I making? Do they like me? Do I sound stupid? Am I wearing unattractive clothes? It is obvious that such uncomfortable feelings must affect people unfavorably. A person’s self-concept is reflected in the way he or she behaves and the way a person think about themselves which has a deep effect on all areas of their lives. Shy people, who have low self-esteem（自尊）, are likely to be passive and easily influenced by others. They need faith that they are doing “the right thing”. Shy people are very sensitive to criticism. It makes them feel inferior （自卑） . They also find it difficult to be pleased by praises because they believe they are unworthy of praise. A shy person may respond to a praise with a statement like this one: “You’re just saying that to make me feel good, I know it’s not true.” It is clear that, while self-awareness is a healthy quality, overdoing it is harmful. Can shyness be completely got rid of, or at least reduced? Fortunately, people can overcome shyness with determination. It is important for people to accept their weaknesses as well as their strengths, for example, not fair for them to label themselves inferior because they have to be realistic. Living on the impossible leads to a sense of inadequacy（不适当，不充足）. Each one of us has his or her own characteristics. We are interested in our own personal ways. The better we understand ourselves, the easier it becomes to live up to our chances for a rich and fulfilling life. 48．The first paragraph is mainly about ______. A．the thoughts of shy people B．the cause of shyness C．the effect of shyness on people D．the questions in the minds of shy people ★49．According to the writer, self-awareness is ______. A．harmful to people B．a weak point of shy people C．the cause of unhappiness D．a good characteristics 50．What is the shy people’s reaction to praise? A．They are pleased by it B．They feel it is not true C．They are very sensitive to it D．They feel they are worthy of it ★51．We can learn from the passage that shyness can ______. A．block our chances for a successful life B．help us to live up to our full development C．enable us to understand ourselves better D．have nothing to do with lack of self-esteem E While small may be beautiful，tall is just plain uncomfortable it seems，particularly when it comes to staying in hotels and eating in restaurants. The Tall Persons Club Great Britain(TPCGB ) ， which was formed six months ago to campaign(发起运动)for the needs of the tall．has turned its attention to hotels and restaurants Beds
that are too small，shower heads that are too low ,and restaurant tables with hardly any leg-room all make life difficult for those of above average height it says. But it is not just the extra-tail whose needs are not being met. The average height of the population has been increasing yet the standard size of beds，doorways，and chairs has remained unchanged. “The bedding industry says a bed should be six inches larger than the person using it ,so even a king-size bed at 6'6"(6feet and 6 inches) is falling short for 25％of men，while the standard 6'3" bed caters for( 满足需要 )less than half of the male( 男性 )population ， "said TPCGB president Phil Heinricy ,"Seven-foot beds would work fine." Similarly ,restaurant tables can cause no end of problems Small tables ， which mean the long-legged have to sit a foot or so away from them are enough to make tall customers go elsewhere. Some have already taken note, however At Queens Moat Houses’Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh ． 6'6" beds are now put in as standard after requests for longer beds from taller visitors,particularly Americans. 52. What is the purpose of the TPCGB campaign? A. To provide better services B. To rebuild hotels and restaurants C. To draw public attention to the needs of the tall D. To attract more people to become its members 53. Which of the following might be a bed of proper length according to Phil Heirtricy? A .7 ' 2 ' ' B. 7 ' C. 6 ' 6 ' ' D .6 ' 3 ' ' ★★54. What may happen to restaurants with small tables? A .They may lose some customers B. They may start businesses elsewhere C .They have to find easy chairs to match the tables D .They have to provide enough space for the long—legged ★★55. What change has already been made in a hotel in Edinburgh? A .Tall people pay more for larger beds B. 6 ' 6 ' ' beds have taken the place of 6 ' 3 ' ' beds C. Special rooms are kept for Americans D. Guest rooms are standardized F Money Matters Parents should help their children understand money. ★★ 56 So you may start talking about money when your child shows an interest in buying things, candy or toys, for example. 1. The basic function of money Begin explaining the basic function of money by showing how people trade money for goods or services. It is important to show your child how money is traded for the things he wants to
have.If he wants to have a toy, give him the money and let him hand the money to the cashier(收银员).57 When your child grows a bit older and understands the basic function of money, you can start explaining more complex ways of using money. 2. Money lessons Approach money lessons with openness and honesty. 58 If you must say no to a child’s request to spend money, explain, “ You have enough toy trucks for now.” Or, if the request is for many different things, say, “ You have to make a choice between this toy and that toy.” 3. ★59 Begin at the grocery store. Pick out two similar brands of a product--- a name-brand butter and a generic (无商标产品)，for example. You can show your child how to make choices between different brands of a product so that you can save money. more expensive choice leaves less money for other purchases. A. Wise decisions B. The value of money C. Permit the child to choose between them. D. Tell your child why he can or cannot have certain things. E. Ask yourself what things that cost money are most important to you F. Talk about how the money bought the thing after you leave the toy store. G. The best time to teach a child anything about money is when he shows an interest. 60 If he chooses the cheaper brand, allow him to make another purchase with the money saved. Later, you may explain how the

Dear Li Hua, It’s time to say goodbye. It’s time to recall those beautiful days we spend together. You are the very person who gives me a hand when necessary. You are the most considerate person who knows exactly what I need. Still remember that night two years ago? When I suddenly fell ill, it was you who carried me on your back to a nearby hospital. You took good care of me while I was having an injection. Later, you managed to help me with my lessons. Without your help, I would have failed in the examination. I still have hundreds of stories to share with you. I still have thousands of blessings for you. May all your dreams come true! May our friendship last till the end of the universe.! Yours, Wang Ping
