DOGS DRIVE CAR
Auckland, New Zealand
After two months of learning, Monty, and Porter were able to drive an automobile around a racetrack. “We wanted to prove how smart rescue dogs are,” animal behaviorist Mark Vette says. Vette first used voice commands and treats to teach the dogs how to turn a steering wheel and how to change gear(换挡).
The dogs’ ride only accelerated up to 7.5 miles an hour, and trainers could stop the auto using a remote control.
Zoe the zebra’s markings are special. The animal has white and golden stripes. Zoe’s appearance resulted from a rare condition called amelanosis(黑素缺失症). Her body doesn't make enough melanin, the substance in an animal’s skin and hair cells that produces color. “Only 25 other golden zebras are known to exist in the world,”says Ann Goody, who runs the wildlife refuge where Zoe lives. In the wild, life may be difficult for animals with amelanosis because predators(捕猎者) can easily spot them. But Zoe is protected at her refuge.
COCKATOO MAKES TOOLS
When Figaro the cockatoo spots food lying just out of reach from his cage, he builds a tiny wooden tool to sweep the tasty prize in his way.
The bird first revealed his talent when a stone he was playing with rolled out of his cage. The cockatoo couldn’t reach the stone. So he flew away and returned with a small branch, slipping it through the fence to slide the stone toward him.
Wondering if he would do it again, scientists placed a nut exactly where the stone had been. This time, Figaro pulled out a small piece of wood in his cage and dragged the nut toward him.
21. If Zoe the zebra is set free in the wild, she will _____ .
A. meet no natural predators B. not get along with other zebras
C. manage to make enough melanin D. be easily found for her appearance
22. What’ s special about Figaro the cockatoo?
A. He’ s particular about his food.
B. He’s extremely fond of stones.
C. He’s good at drawing support from outside forces.
D. He can tell the difference between stones and nuts.
23. What is the text mainly about?
A. Amazing animals. B. Ways to help animals.
C. Animals’ unique talents. D. Tips on training animals.
On a Friday night in May 2015, Oliver and Lone Kleven heard angry shouts coming from their front lawn. Lone, 68, stepped onto the porch and saw two men in dark clothes struggling with something on the ground—right where she and her grandson had planted a flower bed the weekend before.
“Go fight somewhere else!” she shouted, worried her plants would get damaged. At the sound of her voice, the face of a boy appeared from beneath the two men. He looked 13 or 14 or so. “They’re trying to kill me!” the boy screamed. Lone ran toward them and, without hesitation, caught the boy’s arm, pulling him out.
“Leave him alone!” she shouted. When the men stood up, Lone saw what looked like a sharp object in one man’s hand. When she turned back toward the boy, he was moaning in pain and holding his stomach. The attackers began to move in on the boy again when Lone’s husband shouted: “Get lost!” The two men walked quickly and quietly across the street and drove off in a dark car.
“I have to get to the hospital!” the boy cried. He lifted his shirt, and Lone could see a bloody wound on his stomach. Oliver hugged the trembling boy while Lone caught her cell phone and car keys inside the house. She handed the phone to Oliver. “Call 911,” she told him. “I’m going after them.” Lone took off but was unable to find the car.
The Klevens then learned what had happened. Earlier that night, as the boy waited for his parents to pick him up from the high school across the street from the Klevens’ house, two men approached and demanded his wallet. When he refused, one of the men hit him in the face. The boy ran across the street. The men caught up with him, and one hurt him in the back and stomach with a sharp knife. That’s when Lone stepped in.
The boy’s wounds required operations, but he has fully recovered.
“He was alone and outnumbered,” says Lone. “There was no time to do anything except what I did.”
24. Why did Lone shout at the man at the beginning of the story?
A. To stop them fighting with each other. B. To prevent her flowers being ruined.
C. To stop them stealing in the flower bed. D. To keep the boy from being wounded.
25. What’s Lone’s first reaction when she got close to the men?
A. She kept them separate. B. She was shocked at the boy’s wounds.
C. She pulled the boy out. D. She called her husband for help.
26. What’s the main idea of the passage?
A. An old couple rescued a boy by fighting against two robbers.
B. A boy was saved.
C. Two robbers were driven away.
D. An old lady didn’t track the two robbers.
27. What’s the correct order of the following events?
a. Lone stepped in the fight.
b. The two men drove off in a dark car.
c. The boy waited for his parents to pick him up.
d. Lone’s husband boomed from the porch.

It is commonly believed that all over the world, boys and girls attend a mixed school, where they study together. But boys' schools are the perfect place to teach young men to express their emotions and involve them in activities such as art, dance and music.
Always boys at single-sex schools were said to be more likely to get involved in cultural and artistic activities that helped develop their emotional expressiveness, rather than feeling they had to correspond to(和…相符) the "boy code" of hiding their emotions to be a "real man".
Surprisingly, the findings of the study go against received wisdom that boys do better when taught alongside girls.
George Carl, headmaster of Eton, warned that boys were being failed by the British education system because it had become too focused on girls. He criticized teachers for failing to recognize that boys are actually more emotional than girls.
The research argued that boys often perform badly in mixed schools because they become discouraged when girls do better earlier in speaking and reading skills.
But in single-sex schools teachers can adjust lessons to boys' learning style, letting them move around the classroom and getting them to compete in teams to prevent boredom, wrote the study's author, Abigail James, of the University of Virginia.
Teachers could encourage boys to enjoy reading and writing with "boy-focused" approaches such as themes and characters that appeal to them. Because boys generally have more acute vision, learn best through touch, and are physically more active, they need to be given "hands-on" lessons where they are allowed to walk around. "Boys in mixed schools view classical music as feminine（女性的) and prefer the modern genre (类型) in which violence and sexism are major themes," James wrote.
Single-sex education also made it less likely that boys would feel that they had to be "masterful and in charge" in relationships. "In mixed schools, boys feel forced to act like men before they understand themselves well enough to know what that means," the study reported.
28. The writer argues that a single-sex school would __________.
A. encourage boys to express their emotions more freely
B. help boys to be more competitive in schools.
C. force boys to he their emotions to be "real men"
D. naturally strengthen boys’ traditional image of a man
29. Traditionally, in a mixed school boys __________.
A. behave more responsibly. B. perform relatively better.
C. grow up more healthily. D. receive a better education.
30. In Abigail James’ opinion, one of the advantages of single-sex schools is ______.
A. boys can choose to learn whatever they are interested in
B. boys can focus on their lessons without being distracted
C. teaching can be adjusted to suiting the characteristics of boys
D. teaching can be designed to promote boys' team spirit
31．The underlined word “acute” in paragraph 7 is closest in meaning to ______ .
A. lovely B. serious C. sharp D. dull
Often a nickname is a shortened form of a person's name, and it can also be a descriptive name for a place or a thing. Many American cities have nicknames. These can help build up an identity, spread pride among citizens and build their unity. Nicknames can also be funny.
Los Angeles, California is the second largest city in population, after New York City. Los Angeles has several nicknames. One is simply the city's initials, L.A. It is also called the City of Angels because Los Angeles means "the angels" in Spanish.
Los Angeles often has warm, sunny weather. So another nickname is City of Flowers and Sunshine. New York is called The Big Apple. So Los Angeles is sometimes called The Big Orange because of the fruit that grows in that city's warm climate.
The American movie and television industries are based in Los Angeles. So it is not surprising that it is called The Entertainment Capital of the World. Many films are made in the area of Los Angeles called Hollywood. Millions of people visit the area. No trip to Los Angeles is perfect without seeing the word "Hollywood" spelled out in huge letters on a hillside.
Many movie stars live in Los Angeles. The city is sometimes called Tinseltown. This nickname comes from the shiny, bright and often unreal nature of Hollywood and the movie industry.
Another nickname for Los Angeles is La-La Land, using the first letters of Los and Angeles. This means a place that is fun and not serious, and maybe even out of touch with reality.
A good place for watching unusual-looking people is Venice, an area on the west side of Los Angeles. A system of waterways designed after the Italian city of Venice has been built there. Many people love Los Angeles for its warm sunny weather, beautiful mountains and beaches, and movie stars. That includes Randy Newman, who sings about his hometown.
On the whole, Los Angeles is growing attractive just for its rich nicknames.
32. Choose the one that isn’t the function of a nickname of a place.
A. Uniting surrounding cities B. Entertainment
C. Bringing pride to the locals D. Establishing characteristics
33. Which of the following can best replace the underlined sentence?
A. Seeing the big letters "Hollywood" on a hillside means you've been really to Los Angeles.
B. Not seeing the word "Hollywood" on a hillside means you haven't been to Los Angeles.
C. If you visit Los Angeles you should first pay a visit to "Hollywood" s on a hillside.
D. Your trip to Los Angeles is not complete if you miss the big letters "Hollywood" on a hillside
34. What’s the number of the nicknames given to Los Angeles?
A. 5 B. 4 C. 7 D. 6
35. According to the passage, the true statement is ________.
A. Los Angeles was built after the Italian city of Venice
B. Hollywood alone adds fame to Los Angeles
C. Los Angeles is most famous for its nicknames
D. All the nicknames increase the charm of Los Angeles
Imagine going to bed not knowing where your next meal is going to come from. 36 Today, nearly 11 percent of people on Earth suffer from hunger, according to a recent State of Food Insecurity in the World report published by the United Nations. But it turns out that this number is something to celebrate!
Though the numbers look like a lot, the number of hungry people in the world has actually decreased by about 209 million since 1992. This has been mainly due to the hard work of organizations such as the UN, the FAO and the WFP.
According to the WFP, the world produces enough food to feed the entire population of 7 billion people. 37 There are many reasons why food does not go from the producers to the consumers.
People living in poverty cannot afford nutritious foods. This makes them weaker and it is harder for them to earn money to escape from poverty and hunger. 38 An average person in the US spends just 6.6% of the income on food.
Drought is one of the most common causes of food shortage in the world. 39 In many countries, climate change is worsening the situation.
Conflicts around the world can disrupt farming and food production. Fighting forces millions of people to flee their homes. These people don’t have the means to feed themselves.
40 Food that is wasted uses up precious natural resources.
A. How can we solve the problem?
B. Each nation has its own challenges.
C. One-third of all food produced is never consumed.
D. But not everybody has access to food when they need it.
E. That is the fate of nearly 805 million people in the world.
F. Natural disasters such as flood and tropical storms can impact food output too.
G. Do you know in poor countries people spend over 80% of their earnings on food?

The International Volunteer Day approaching, some volunteers of our school are organized to assist the policemen with traffic control in our city. At 8 o’clock on the morning of last Sunday, we gathered at the school gate. One of our teachers was in the charge of this activity but he divided us into four groups. Then we went to different crossings near our school. The police officers told us that we should do and how to protect themselves from danger. We spent the whole morning keep the streams of traffic flowing smooth. With a red banner in our hands, we stopped some road user running the red light. Some citizens praised us our good deeds. Because we were very tired that morning, we were proud to have offered service to our society.

I’m delighted to hear that you’ll be a senior student. Now, I’d like to share my study tips with you.
First, you’d better communicate with your teachers regularly. In this way, they may offer some great advice on both your study and life.

We have to get up early to make our beds before our teacher
comes to inspect. After breakfast, we have some free time. Yesterday I went down to the nearby stream to fish, but the only thing I caught was a tree branch. In the afternoon, there are different activities like singing, horseback riding, and hiking. None is new to me. In the evening, everyone is assigned different tasks to get dinner ready. Yesterday, I was in charge of preparing the hot dogs, but I accidentally dropped them in the fire. The other kids are always laughing at me about it. At night, we sit around a campfire and tell stories. That's the most interesting moment to me. But one night while trying to find more sticks for the fire, I almost got lost in the forest. Well, today is another day and I will go home the day after tomorrow.
