After the board meeting, Frank began to tell us of his childhood. "I grew up in San Pedro. My dad was a fisherman and had his own 16 . But it was hard making a living on the sea. He worked hard and would stay out until he 17 enough to feed the family."
He looked at us and said, "I 18 you could have met my dad. He was a big man and strong from pulling the nets and fighting the seas for his catch. When you got close to him, he 19 like the ocean. He would wear his old canvas, foul-weather coat and overalls with the rain hat 20 down over his brow. No matter how much my mother washed them, they would still smell of the sea and of fish."
Frank's voice 21 a bit as if he were back to his childhood. "When the weather was bad he would drive me to school. His truck was older than he was, which you could hear coming for 22 . As he would drive toward the school, I would shrink down into the seat hoping to 23 ."
"When the truck stopped, it would throw out a cloud of smoke. He would pull right up in front, and it seemed like 24 would be standing around and watching. Then he would 25 and give me a big kiss on the cheek and tell me to be a good boy. It was so 26 for me at that time."
He paused and then went on, "I 27 that day I decided I was too old for a goodbye kiss. When we got to the school, he had his 28 big smile. He started to lean toward me, 29 I put my hand up and said, 'No, Dad."
"It was the first time I had ever talked to him that way, and he had this 30 look on his face. My dad looked at me for the longest time, and his eyes started to tear 31 . I had never seen him cry. He turned and looked out of the windshield. 'You are right, 'he said, 'You are a big boy --a man. I won't kiss you any more. '"
Frank got a funny look on his face, and tears began to well up in his eyes as he spoke. "It wasn't long 32 that when my dad went to sea and never came back. It was a day when most of the fleet stayed 33 but not dad."
I looked at Frank and saw that tears were running down his cheeks. Frank spoke again, "Guys, you don't know 34 I would give to have my dad give me just one more kiss on the cheek ... If I had been a 35 , I would never have told my dad I was too old for a goodbye kiss."

Baranda Historic Society
Mr Tim Benton PO Box 22
55 Hillview Terrace Baranda, NSW 2526
Bellevue Hill NSW 2023
Dear Mr Benton,
Baranda Historic Society (BHS) has recently restored a slab hut (板条木屋)which we believe was built by your great-grandfather, Mr George Bentonin the early 1880s. The hut is on the Old Wattle Road, 10 kilometres from Baranda in central New South Wales.
In August there was an article in the Baranda Times about the restoration of the hut. BHS asked if anyone had any information about the original owners of the hut and about any living relatives. We were flooded with responses. As a result, we have already found several of Mr George Benton's descendents (后代).
BHS is officially opening the slab hut on Saturday October 28th. We would be very honoured if you and your family would attend the opening followed by a barbecue lunch. We would also love to hear any stories you know about the hut's history. We have invited many of your relatives as you can see from the list enclosed. We would appreciate it if you could let us know of any relative not on the list. I also enclose a copy of the newspaper article and a photo of the slab hut.
I look forward to hearing from you.
RSVP: October 1st

Norah has a cottage on a cliff above a big bay. In winter it could be very dirty because of strong winds and sea spray. In fact, when a gale (大风) was blowing, Norah and her husband got used to sleeping in a small room downstairs, because their bedroom upstairs, which faced the gales, had a very big window, and they were afraid that an extra violent gust might break it and blow pieces of broken glass over them.
Also, the salt spray from the sea put an end to many of the colorful plants Norah planted in the garden. She tried putting up a fence to protect them, but the wind just hit it, went up over the top and then down the other side, so in the end she filled the garden with trees and bushes that liked salt.
But most of the summer Norah enjoyed her cottage and garden very much. At weekends she could sit out-of-doors in the sun, looking at the beautiful view, with interesting ships and boats passing by, and she could very easily cycle down to the sea for a swim.
Now, Norah and her husband had plenty of friends and relations. In the summer lots of them used to come to enjoy the beautiful place, and in the end it really became quite annoying for Norah and her husband. When they were at home, they found friends and relations arriving, expecting to be given unlimited drinks and meals, and to sit in the sun for hours, talking as if Norah and her husband had nothing else to do but entertain and listen to them.
This went on for several years. Norah did no wish to appear rude by refusing to let her friends and relations in, but on the other hand, she was getting tired every summer.
Then one day Norah was complaining about this to her hairdresser while she was doing her hair. "You're disturbed by too many uninvited guests, are you?" said the hairdresser. "Why don't you try my way of escaping?"
"What's that? " asked Norah.
"Well," the hairdresser answered, "when the bell rings, I put on my coat and take my shopping bag. If it's someone I don't want to see, I say innocently, 'I'm sorry, but I've got to go out. But... '"
40. In paragraph One the underlined word "spray" probably means _________.
A. wastes produced by some birds living near the sea
B. great waves caused by strong wind
C. plants floating on the surface of the sea
D. very small drops of sea water sent through the air by something
41. We can infer that _________.
A. a lot of friends came to visit them in winter
B. few friends came to visit them in winter
C. Friends came to visit them only for drinks and meals
D. Norah was a good cook
42. The best title for the passage might be _________.
A. A Good Place of Enjoying the Sea B. A Warm-hearted Couple
C. A Clever Way of Escaping D. A Visit to Norah
43. What the Hairdresser is likely to continue to say in the end is _________.
A. If I am tired, I say, 'Sorry, can you come next time?
B. If it's someone I like to see, I say, 'How lucky! I've just come in!'
C. If it's someone I like to see, I say, 'How happy to see you! I was going shopping, but now I've changed my mind.
D. If it is fine that day, I My, 'I am tired, but I'll show you around the place, anyhow. '
What do we think with? Only the brain? Hardly. The brain is like a telephone exchange. It is the switchboard, but not the whole system. Its function is to receive incoming signals, making proper connections and send messages through to their destination. For efficient service, the body must function as a whole. But where is the "mind"? Is it in the brain? Or perhaps in the nervous system? After all, can we say that the mind is in any particular place? It is not like a thing; like a leg, or even the brain. It is a function, an activity. Aristotle, 2,300 years ago, observed that the mind was to the body what cutting was to the axe.
When the axe is not in use, there is no cutting. So with the mind. "Mind", said Charles H. Woolbert, "is what the body is doing". If this activity is necessary for thinking, it is also necessary for carrying thought from one person to another. If you have never done this with great efforts, you have a surprise in store, for good conversationalists are almost constantly in motion. Their heads are continuously nodding and shaking sometimes so vigorously (精神旺盛地) that you wonder how their necks can stand the strain (过劳). Even the legs and feet are active. As for the hands and arms, they are seldom still for more than a few seconds at a time. These people, remember, are not making speeches. They are only common people trying to make others understand what they have in mind. They are not conscious of movement. Their speech is not studied. They are just human creatures in a human environment, trying to adapt themselves to a social situation. Yet they converse, not only with oral language, but with visible actions that involve practically every muscle in the body. In short, because people really think all over, a speaker must talk all over if he succeeds in making people think.
44. The best title for the passage is probably ________.
A. Body Communication B. Written Language C. Spoken Language D. Conversations
45. The statement which the author agrees with would be that ____________.
A. thinking is a social activity
B. thinking is only a brain function
C. thinking is a function of the nervous system
D. thinking is the total sum of body activity
46. It can be inferred from the passage that the basic function of bodily activity in speech is to ____________.
A. make the listener have strong feeling B. make the speaker understood
C. attract the listeners' attention D. convey the speaker's implied meaning to the listeners
47. Which of the following is true?
A. The brain is compared to a telephone exchange.
B. The mind is an activity of the nervous system.
C. Some people remain still while talking to others.
D. Many people move their bodies on purpose while talking.
To be sure, only children experienced some things differently from those with sisters and brothers. Many feel more pressure to succeed. They also tend to look only to their parents as role models in the absence of brothers and sisters.
In India, 10-year-old Saviraj Sankpal founded a support group for the tiny minority of only children. Among other things, the group does volunteer work to counter (反对) the myth that they are not responsible. "People think we're treated too kindly and ruined, "says Sankpal, a computer engineering student. "But I'd like to remind them how lonely it can get."
Most only children, however, say they wish for sisters or brothers only when it comes to caring for aging, unhealthy parents. Britain's David Emerson, coauthor of the book The Only Child, says that such a person bears terrible burden in having to make all the decisions alone. Emerson knows from experience: After his father died, he chose to move his elderly mother from their family home, where she was vulnerable (易受攻击的) to house breakers, to a new one with more security. "The move was quite hard on her, and she might feel that I pushed her into it, "he says, "After all, I am left with that responsibility."
In the future, more and more only children will likely face similar choices. With working mothers increasing, many families are finding they simply don't have the time, money or energy to have more than one child. As only children become common, perhaps the world will realize that the Charge made against them is unjust.
48. It can be inferred from the passage that the author's attitude towards only children is _______.
A. ironic B. objective C. unfriendly D. unjust
49. It can be inferred from the passage that only children's parents should ___________.
A. found a support group for their only children
B. do volunteer work to help their only children
C. let their only children make all the decisions alone
D. set good examples for their only children
50. Emerson decided to move his elderly mother to a new house because he ___________.
A. is the only one who cares about her B. doesn't want to leave her alone
C. wants to share the responsibility with her D. is worried about her safety
51. It is quite usual now for a working mother to ____________.
A. spend all her time and money on her only child
B. be responsible for bringing up her only child
C. have and bring up only one child
D. devote all her energy to her job
52. The main idea of the passage is that ________.
A. only children are ruined and irresponsible
B. only children have to face many challenges
C. most only children want to have brothers and sisters
D. most only children share their responsibility with their parents
For most of the 20th century, the solution to the mystery of the original Americans --- where did they come from, when and how? -- seemed as clear as the geography of the Bering Strait, the climate of the last ice age, and the ubiquity (普遍存在)of finely wrought (磨制的) stone hunting weapons knows as Clovis points.
According to the ruling theory, bands of big--game hunters tracked out of Siberia sometime 11,500 years ago. They crossed into Alaska when the floor of the Bering Strait, drained dry by the accumulation of water in a frozen world's massive glaciers, was a land bridge between continents, and found themselves in a trackless continent, the New World when it was truly new.
The hunters, so the story went, moved south through a corridor between glaciers and soon flourished on the great plains and in the southwest of what is now the United States, their presence widely marked by distinctive stone projectile (抛射) points first discovered near the town of Clovis, New Mexico. In less than 1,000 years, these Clovis people and their distinctive stone points made it all the way to the tip of the south of America. They were presumably (大概)the founding population of today's American Indians.
Now a growing body of very interesting evidence is telling a much different story. From Alaska to Brazil and southern Chile, artifacts and skeletons are forcing archaeologists to abandon Clovis orthodoxy (传统观念) and come to terms with a more complex picture of earliest American settlement. People may have arrived thousands to tens of thousands of years sooner, in many waves of migration and by a number of routes. Their ancestry may not have been only Asian. Some of the migrations may have originated in Australia or Europe.
53. What is the main idea of the text?
A. Hunters from Siberia crossed the Bering Strait 11,500 years ago.
B. The Clovis people may not have been the first to arrive.
C. Clovis points were first found in New Mexico.
D. During the last ice age, the Bering Strait was dry land.
54. The Clovis people are named after the place where ________.
A. they first camped in North America B. their tents and burials were first found
C. they crossed into North American D. their stone points were first found
55. Scientists now believe that native Americans originally came from _______.
A. Siberia in a single migration about 11,500 years ago
B. all parts of North and South America
C. Europe only
D. many places, including Siberia, Europe, and Australia

My classmates and I took part in a wildness survival program from July 10th to July 13th this summer.
Before we started, we were equipped with a compass, a map, a first-aid kit, tents, flashlights, some food, some clothes and so on. On the way we climbed three hills and swam across two rivers. We lost our way in the forest. Luckily we found the right direction with the compass. As soon as we arrived at the campsite, we put up our tents, made a fire and then started cooking. We also learned how to give first-aid.
Through the program, we learned to use knowledge gained in class to solve problems. It was quite an unforgettable experience for me.
