One summer day, with a heavy heart and four dollars in my pocket, I was on my way to get some milk and bread. In those days, I was a 36 visitor to the supermarket because there never seemed to be 37 money for a whole week’s food-shopping 38 , because the part-time job I held hardly 39 enough money to feed my children after my wife’s death.
As I came to a red traffic light, I 40 a couple and a child by the roadside. The hot noonday sun beat down on them without 41 . The man held up a sign which 42 , “Work for Food.” The woman just stared at the cars waiting 43 the red light while the child sat on the grass 44 a one-armed doll.
I wanted so desperately to 45 them some money, but if I 46 that, there wouldn’t be enough left to buy the milk and bread. Four dollars will only go 47 . As the light changed, I took one last glance at the three of them and sped off feeling both 48 and sad.
As I kept driving, I couldn’t get the 49 of them out of my mind. I could 50 it no longer. I turned around and drove back where I had 51 seen them. I pulled up and handed the man two of my four dollars. 52 he thanked me, I saw tears welling up his eyes. I 53 back and drove on to the supermarket. Perhaps milk and bread would be 54 , I thought.

The city of Venice，in Italy，is one of a kind.It is built on more than 120 islands，just off arrival.After explaining where my new house was，I told him that I had left the key under the doormat.Since I knew it would be quite late before I could get back，I suggested that he make himself at home and help himself to anything that was kept in the refrigerator(冰箱).
Two hours later my friend phoned me from the house.At the moment，he said，he was listening to some of my records after having had a nice meal.He had found the pan and meat in the refrigerator.Now，he was drinking a cup of tea and hoped that I would join him soon.When I asked him if he bad any difficulty finding the house，he answered that the only problem was that he had not been able to find the key under the doormat，but luckily，the living room window by the apple tree had been left open and he had climbed in through the window.I listened to all this in great surprise.There is no apple tree outside my window，but there is one by the living room window of my next-door neighbor’s house!

Your body, which has close relations with the food you eat, is the most important thing you own, so it needs proper treatment and proper nourishment (营养).The old saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away ”is not as silly as some people think. The body needs fruit and vegetables because they contain vitamin C. Many people take extra vitamins in pill form, believing that these will make them healthy.
But a good diet is made up of nourishing food and this gives all the vitamins you need. The body doesn’t need or use extra vitamins, so why waste money on them?
In the modern western world, many people are too busy to bother about eating properly. They throw anything into their stomachs, eating hurriedly and carelessly. The list of illnesses caused or made worse by bad eating habits is frightening,
61.“Your body has close relations with the food you eat.” It really means that ______.
A. all kinds of food you eat can be made into your body
B. your body is made up of the food you eat
C. what you eat has great effect on your health
D. the more you eat, the fitter you will feel
62. In the second paragraph, the writer tries to let us know ______.
A. our bodies need food or we can’ t live
B. often eating apples is a good habit
C. taking extra vitamin pills is completely useless
D. a good diet is of great importance for our health
63.In the modern western countries ______.
A. people don’t want to pay more attention to their eating
B. lots of people’ s illnesses are caused or made worse by bad eating habits
C. people throw everything into their stomachs without chewing
D. people are only too busy to cook meals for themselves
64.From the passage we can draw a conclusion that if we want to keep healthy, we should ______.
A. only eat an apple a day
B. eat properly
C. take as many vitamin pills as possible
D. throw something into our stomachs slowly and carefully
Two recent studies might end the great grocery bag debate. The debates over which type of grocery bag is best break down into two issues: which are better for the environment, and which are better for your health.
The first study focused on the question of cloth bag contamination(传染). It’s well-known that supermarkets offer many opportunities for people to pick up contaminated food: other shoppers contaminate shopping carts, and stockroom clerks contaminate containers. When shoppers put such things into cloth bags, they can contaminate the bag, and then wind up contaminating uncontaminated foods on their next shopping trip. Large numbers of bacteria were found in almost all bags.
Washing the bags might help, but researchers found that “reusable bags are seldom washed and often used for different purposes”.
The second study should end the “use reusable grocery bags” argument. In the study, researchers evaluated(评估)the bags on a set of environmental standards, including global warming potential. The table below shows how many times that non-HDPE bags must be used in order to bring their global warming potential down to that of an HDPE bag. The first column, for example, shows that a paper bag should be reused three times to reduce its global warming potential to that of an HDPE bag, while you have to use an LDPE bag four times, a non-woven PP bag 11 times, and a cotton bag up to 131 times to achieve the same end.
Type of carrierHDPE bag (No secondary reuse)HDPE bag (40.3% reused as rubbish bags)HDPE bag (100% reused as rubbish bags)HDPE bag (Used three times)
Non-woven PP bag11142633
So the conclusion seems clear: the traditional, thin plastic bag has better environmental performance and is likely to be quite safer for human health.
65. The researchers in both studies might agree that ________.
A. we should reuse our grocery bags as much as possible
B. cotton bags are environment-friendly when they are reused
C. plastic bags are good for the environment and our health
D. grocery bags, if washed, can reduce global warming potential
66. The underlined phrase “wind up” in Paragraph 2 probably means _________.
A. give upB. end upC. pick upD. take up
67. What’s the problem with cloth bags according to the first study?
A. They are easily contaminated when reused.
B. They produce large numbers of bacteria.
C. They are poisonous and can pollute foods.
D. They need washing before being reused.
On hearing the words “Just do it!”, you will know there is a Nike product nearby.If it’s “Always Coca-Cola”, you can be sure someone wants to sell you a refreshing drink.
An advertising slogan(广告标语) is to a brand what eyes are to a person.The slogan helps people understand the brand better by telling them what it wants to sell to its customers.Good slogans leave a message inside people’s minds.It’s almost certain that every brand has a popular slogan.
Here are a few examples:
“Just do it!”—This slogan speaks out to teens.It tells them to do something, but only if they think it’s worth it.And if so, why not do it wearing Nike?
“Always Coca-Cola.”—Coke’s slogans change every few years, but this one has enjoyed a lasting popularity because it shows the brand’s spirit.It seems to say “Coke is the only drink there is; there are no other forms of drinks.”
“Share moments, share life.”—This slogan from Kodak connects photos and beauty.It asks people to remember the happy moments in life by taking photos of them—using Kodak film of course!
68.What would be the best title for the text?
A.Just Do It! B.Slogan And Brand
C.Famous Slogans D.What Is A Good Slogan?
69.Which of the following can best explain the underlined sentence (paragraph 2)?

B.A brand should have an advertising slogan just as people have eyes.
C.An advertising slogan is as important to a brand as eyes are to a person.

During the weekend I traveled by the air for the first time in my life. I usual travel by train or bus. It’s both cheaper and safe. But to fly in the sky was something new to me. At the end I felt a little nervous. But very soon I became exciting when I found me high up in the sky among the clouds. I also found that mountains, fields, river and so on were interestingly small. I enjoy the frightening and comfortable journey very much. After all, it is more interesting take a plane than to take a car.

One possible version,
It is difficult to imagine what life would be like without water. Water is very important to all living things. There would be no life without water.
Water shortage has become a serious problem. One reason for this is that the growing population and the development of industry and agriculture need much more water. Another is that water is being wasted in some areas.
Therefore, measures must be taken to solve this problem. First of all, we must make good use of water and avoid polluting it. In addition, we can get useful water through purifying rain water or sea water.

Each morning, Billy leaves the house at 5:15 to go to the corner where the newspapers are. The newspapers were delivered to the corner by truck at midnight.
In the winter it is still dark when he gets up, but during the rest of the year it is light. Billy must deliver the newspapers to the houses of people on his route in all kinds of weather. He tries to put each paper on the place where it will be protected from wind and rain or snow. His customers think he does a good job. Sometimes they give him tips.
Billy earns about $70 per month, and he is saving some of the money to go to college. He spends the rest on records and clothes. Once a month, he has to collect money from his customers. Since many of them work during the day, Billy has to collect the money at night.
Billy has seventy customers now, but he hopes to get more soon. Someday, if he gets many more customers, Billy might win a prize for being an outstanding newspaper boy. He wants to win a trip to Europe, but he will be happier if he wins a new bicycle.
