阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项 （A 、B 、C和D）中，选出最佳选项。
LONDON ( Reuters)——Organic fruit, delivered right to the doorstep. That is what Gabriel Gold prefers, and he is willing to pay for it. If this is not possible, the 26-year-old computer technician will spend the extra money at the supermarket to buy organic food.
“Organic produce is always better,” Gold said, “The food is free of pesticides (农药), and you are generally supporting family farms instead of large farms. And more often than not, it is locally grown and seasonal, so it is more tasty. ” Gold is one of a growing number of shoppers buying into the organic trend, and supermarkets across Britain are counting on more like him as they grow their organic food business. But how many shoppers really know what they are getting, and why are they willing to pay a higher price for organic produce? Market research shows that Gold and others who buy organic food can generally give clear reasons for their preferences—but their knowledge of organic food is far from complete. For example, small amounts of pesticides can be used on organic products. And about three quarters of organic food in Britain is not local but imported to meet growing demand. “The demand for organic food is increasing by about one third every year, so it is a very fast-growing market. " said Sue Flock, a specialist in this line of business.
21. More and more people in Britain are buying organic food because .
A. they consider the food free of pollution
B. they can get the food anywhere
C. they are getting richer
D. they like home-grown fruit
22. Which of the following statements is TRUE to the facts about most organic produce sold in Britain?
A. It grows indoors all year round. B. It is grown on family farms.
C. It is produced outside Britain. D. It is produced on large farms.
23. What is the meaning of the underlined words “the organic trend” in Paragraph2?
A. Higher prices of organic food. B. Better quality of organic food.
C. Rising market of organic food. D. Growing interest in organic food.
When I was 5, my father worked the night shift as a nurse in a hospital. He was always carrying his stethoscope (听诊器) so naturally, so I called him “Dr. Saldivar” while I pressed his stethoscope against his chest. But my father, as a humble man, was always correcting me: “I am not a doctor, son, but you can be one.” I grew up feeling like I had no limits because of moments like this, which has helped me take risks personally and professionally in spite of the hardships I had to endure.
Being born to Mexican immigrants meant that my parents had to work very hard to provide for my family and I had to learn to struggle through school paperwork on my own, because my parents' English was limited and they couldn't always be there motivating us through the process. If I wanted to succeed academically, my perseverance, and strength would be tested.
Perseverance, strength and good education are the gateway to success. And this is especially true when you look at the obstacles that Latinos have to overcome to succeed in public schools. For instance, while the national high school dropout (辍学) rate has decreased significantly, we still have the highest dropout rate in the country. We are more likely to live in poverty and attend racially separated schools. These issues create many other problems for Latinos.
To help relieve my family burden, I found my first job when I was 14 at a local hotel. Despite the long hours on my new job, I worked hard. Meanwhile, I continually stressed the importance of getting a respectable education and did everything possible to get one step closer to making my dream a reality.
Nearly a decade later, I became the first in my family to graduate from the University of Southern California. Knowing the social, economic, and political struggles that a community faces, I began to pursue journalism to give the disadvantaged minorities a voice.
24. What inspired the author when he was a child?

B. racial separation has long been forbidden in America

A. speak for the disadvantaged Latinos B. enjoy a different life
C. show his success as a Latino D. repay the sacrifice his parents made
27. What can we learn from the author's experience?
A. Immigration is an approach to personal success.
B. American Dream is difficult for the Latinos to achieve.
C. Disadvantaged Latinos are still facing many challenges.
D. Good education is a way to successful life.
Cities are likely to be affected by overheating, thanks to something called the urban heat island effect. Cities tend to be short of trees, which provide shade, and they are covered with black pavement, which absorbs heat from the sun. Think of how it feels to wear a dark shirt versus a white shirt on a sunny day. A black shirt absorbs light, heating you up. But a white shirt reflects light, keeping you cool.
The average temperature in a city of a million or more people can be more than 5 degrees F hotter than surrounding areas. That extra 5 degrees can turn a hot day from uncomfortable to deadly. As temperatures rise, cities will be an especially dangerous place to be during a heat wave. To protect public health, city officials are going to make the city cooler.
As part of that effort, Los Angeles is coating its roads in CoolSeal, a gray paint that keeps streets and parking lots 10 degrees cooler than black asphalt（沥青）. It will help Angelinos save money during the summer, when air conditioning sends power bills soaring（猛增）. And it will save lives by lowering temperatures and improving air quality. Hot weather worsens air pollution by turning car exhaust into smog, which can make life miserable for people with asthma（哮喘）and other breathing problems.
Of course, LA will have to do more than paint over a few streets to cool off the city. Angelinos will also need to plant more trees and apply white paint to rooftops—at least those not already covered in solar panels. While LA is a pioneer of reflective streets, other cities, like New York, are already experimenting with reflective roofs or, like Melbourne, lowering the temperature by planting trees. LA is hardly alone in its effort to stay cool.
“This is an urgent challenge, and it's much bigger than one person,” said Mayor Garcetti in a recent statement. “Climate change is a fact of life that people in Los Angeles and cities around the world live with every day.”
28. The urban heat island effect results from .
A. planting more trees in the streets
B. furnishing every house with air conditioners
C. applying reflective paint to rooftops
D. covering the streets with white paint
29. What should the city officials emphasize during hot summer?
A. When to coat the roads with black paint.
B. Where to wear a white shirt.
C. How to cool the city .
D. When to cut off the electricity supply.
30. What benefit can people gain from the use of CoolSeal?
A. Making life easier and more comfortable.
B. Promoting the sale of air conditioners.
C. Increasing the indoor activities.
D. Reducing the number of cold days.
31. What's the main idea of the passage?
A. L.A. adopted many approaches to fight against the heat.
B. L.A. is painting its streets white to keep the city cool.
C. L.A. has begun to plant trees in the streets.
D. L.A. calls on people to fight against global warming.
A new keyboard can tell whether you are its owner. The keyboard records information about the typing pattern and sends it to a computer program. The program then checks to see if the pattern matches the right user, If not, an alarm sounds, and the computer locks the typist out. It locks out anyone else, even if the person knows password. What's more, this device needs no batteries. It harvests all the energy it needs from the action of your typing. Besides, the keyboard is also self-cleaning and the keys are free of damage from water, oil and dirt.
The keys of the new keyboard are made of the same inexpensive plastic that might be found on any other standard keyboard. But instead of being smooth, the keys have millions of tiny plastic nanowires（纳米线）on their surface area to every key, increasing the effective contact area between the plastics and fingers. This ensures that there's enough power to run the keyboard as someone types.
Liming Dai, a scientist, did not work on the new keyboard, but he thinks the design could be important in getting better performance from a variety of devices. “It could also be applied to a touch screen, for instance,” Dai says. “ Then smart phones and notepads could harvest energy from the action of someone typing or drawing.”
“Future work might make the keyboard even more useful,” Dai adds. “A later design might build tiny capacitors（电容器）onto the nanowires,” he suggests. Capacitors are little devices that temporarily store electric charges. Those might then LEDs to light a Keyboard in the dark.
Zhonglin Wang is a co-designer of the new keyboard. His team has build a working model of the keyboard. “If a company decides to fund（投资）its production, this keyboard could be in stores in as little as two years,” says Wang.
32. How does the new keyboard tell whether you are its owner?
A. By matching the typing pattern to the right user.
B. By sending alarms to a computer program.
C. By checking the right user's passwords.
D. By recording information about the typing pattern.
33. Why are there many nanowires on the surface of the keys?
A. To increase the effective contact area.
B. To improve the speed of typing.
C. To make the keys smooth.
D. To help produce power.
34. What's Dai's attitude to the new keyboard?
A. Unconcerned B. Doubtful C. Positive D. Critical.
35. What is the best title for the text?
A. A New Keyboard Made of Nanowires
B. A New Keyboard Entirely Owned by you
C. A New Keyboard’s Future.
D. A New Keyboard Powered by Typing
We need to fail—failure is how we learn. If we never fail at anything, we probably haven't learned all that life has to teach us. 36
Don't criticize yourself for trying and never stop trying.
Trying or learning something new is often half the battle. Babies don't give up until they learn to walk. If you really want to change some behavior or learn to do something new, don't give up trying. 37 , although you may get depressed by the lack of progress sometimes.
Understand the power of optimism.
While optimism is the ‘new happiness’, there is a certain power in optimistic thinking whether you believe it or not. Putting yourself in a more optimistic mindset（心态）can open you up to more possibilities.
Learn to rely on yourself first, then others.
Those who are self-reliant are also usually more resilient—meaning they can bounce back from problems, stress and heartbreak more quickly than those who aren't. 38 —just become your own best friend, do everything that you can possibly do for yourself, and learn what your strengths and weaknesses are.
Don't look back.
39 . But in fact, there's nothing back there to see. Spend just 10 percent more of your time looking forward to what life holds for you in the future, and I suspect you'll find yourself in a better position.
Failure is a normal and natural pan of life that is neither good nor bad---it's just how we learn. 40 , but how quickly you can accept your failure, learn something from it and try again.
A. We should cherish today.
B. But how can we avoid failure?
C. But what can help us when we fail?
D. So the question is not whether you fail or not.
E. If you give up, your progress will come to an end.
F. Becoming more self-reliant is easier than it sounds.
G. We spend too much of our adult lives looking back.
A few years ago, Adina Lichtman was handing out sandwiches on the streets of New York City to help people experiencing homelessness. One man, 41 for the sandwich, approached her and 42 some surprising insight（见识）.
“It's great that you're 43 sandwiches,” he said, “but one thing we really 44 is socks, especially as winter approaches.”
“Here I was, sandwiches in 45 , assuming I knew the best way to help people, when in reality, helping is about 46 , and hearing the needs of different communities,” Lichtman said. “It was a powerful 47 , and I wanted to put it into 48 .”
She began that night, with a 49 step: going door-to-door on the floor of her 50 at New York University, asking 51 classmates if they could each just donate just one pair of their own socks to someone 52 home.
She got 40 pairs of socks in a single 53 , from a single floor. The next morning she opened her door to find a huge 54 of socks that other people had donated.
“College students love to do 55 , but sometimes they need a literal（实实在在的）knock on their 56 to do so. And almost everyone has a(n) 57 pair of socks they can donate,” Lichtman said.
That morning Lichtman 58 kicked off Knock Knock, Give a Sock, a new nonprofit organization that has now 59 over 350,000 pairs of socks for the homeless in cities and states across America. It is also now Lichtman's full-time job.

When we see well, we do not think about our eyes very often. It is only when we cannot see perfectly 61 we realize how important our eyes are.
People who are near-sighted can only see things that are very close to their eyes. When people do a lot of work, such as 62 （write）, reading and sewing, they become near--sighted.
People who are far-sighted can see things that are far away, 63 they have difficulty in reading a book unless they hold it at an arm's 64 （long）. If they want to do much reading, they must wear glasses.
Other people do not see clearly because they have astigmatism (散光). This, too, can 65 （correct） by wearing glasses. Some people's eyes become cloudy because of cataracts (白内障). Long ago these people often became blind. Now, however, it is possible to operate on the cataracts and remove 66 .
Having two good eyes 67 （be） important when you judge distances. Each eye sees things from a 68 （slight） different angle. To prove this to yourself, look at an object out of one eye; then look at the same object out of your other eye. You will find 69 object's relation to the background has changed. The difference 70 these two different eye views helps us judge how far away an object is. So protect your eyes well.

I’m writing to invite you to China to spend the approaching summer holiday with me. There are only several days left for me to graduate from high school and then I’ll have a long vacation without any homework. Here are some wonderful plans for you.
First of all, I can’t wait to travel to Beijing. Just as an old Chinese saying goes, he who doesn’t reach the Great Wall is not a true man. We can compete to see who is the first to climb to the top of the Great Wall. If you promise to join me, I can pick you up at the Capital Airport. We can also pay a visit to the Forbidden City to see what remains a mystery to you. There is no doubt that we can have a meaningful and unforgettable vacation together.
Looking forward to your reply.
