My father and I were very close. I loved pleasing him, and he was always proud of my success. If I won a spelling contest(竞赛) at school, he was on top of the world. Later in life whenever I got a promotion(提升), I'd call my father right away and he'd rush out to tell all his friends.

You’re out to dinner. The food is delicious and the service is fine. You decide to leave a big tip. Why? The answer may not be as simple as you think.
Tipping, psychologists( 心理学家 ) have found, is not just about service. Instead, studies have shown that tipping can be affected by psychological reactions to a series of different factors ( 因素 ) ranging from the waiter’s choice of words to how they carry themselves while taking orders to the bill’s total. Even how much waiters remind customers of themselves can determine how much change they pocket by the end of the night.
“ Studies before have shown that mimicry ( 模仿 ) brings into positive feelings for the mimicker,” said Rick van Baaren, a social psychology professor. “These studies show that people who are being mimicked become more generous ( 大方的 ) toward the person who mimics them.”
So Rick van Baaren divided 59 waiters into two groups. He requested that half respond to diner’s meal orders with a phrase such as, “Coming up!” Those in the other half were instructed to repeat the orders and preferences back to the customers. Rick van Baaren then compared their take-home pay. The results were clear ── it pays to mimic your customer. The copycat waiters earned almost double the amount of tips than the other group.
Leonard Green and Joel Myerson , psychologists at Washington University in St. Louis, found the generosity of a tipper might be limited by his bill. After research on the 1,000 tips left for waiters, taxi drivers and hair stylists, they found tip percentages in three areas dropped as customers’ bills went up. In fact, tip percentages appear to plateau ( 稳定 ) when bills topped $100 and a bill for $200 made the worker gain no bigger percentage tip than a bill for $100.
“That’s also a point of tipping,” said Green. “ You have to give a little extra to the taxi driver for being there to pick you up and something to the waiter for being there to serve you. If they weren’t there you’d never get any service. So part of the idea of a tip is for just being there.”
49. According to the passage, a passenger gives the taxi driver an extra tip for ___
A. driver’s politeness B. driver’s mimicry C. driver’s attitudes D. being there
50. According to the passage, which of the following will be likely to show the right change of the tip percentages ?
A B C D
51. According to the passage, we know the writer seems to ______________.
A. oppose Mr. Green’s idea about tipping
B. think part of Mr. Green’s explanation is reasonable
C. give his generous tip to the waiters very often
D. support the opinions of Mr. Green and Rick van Baaren about tipping
Doodles are signs which you draw unconsciously when you are holding a pen in your hand and just happen to start writing aimlessly. However, there is more to these” diagrams( 图形) of the unconscious” than what you see. Free from the restriction(limitation) of the conscious mind, they can be useful in finding your character and personality, and many of your secret hopes, ambitions, fears, and dreams.
Faces are a sign of sociability or lack of it. If you doodle happy, smiling faces, you have a friendly, out -going disposition(character) which people respond to, and you enjoy an active social life. If your faces are bad, this may mean hating others. Faces looking to the right are a sign of out-going personality and confident expectation about the future, to the left, a sign of shyness and self-control.
Bare or narrow trees show a lack of warmth. You’ve probably been disappointed in life or could even be suffering from a minor illness that needs attention.
If you build a house in layers( 层) , each layer separate, you could be too proud, too eager to make your loved ones follow your order and jump to attention. A little untidiness in a house makes the people feel comfortable, safe and happy.
If your doodle looks like a web, you are making a cry for help in solving a problem, you feel trapped, and are seeking a way out; perhaps you even want to travel, try out new ideas and realize your ambitions. But you lack confidence to step out into the world on your own because of the web you’ve created around you.

A.a leader B.a self-controlled person C.a shy person D.an attentive person

Very pleased to know that you are coming to study in Beijing and it is really a good idea to improve your Chinese before the new term begins next September.
Here is an introduction to a school of Chinese. Compared with the other schools, I think it is a suitable one that you can go to. First, it is very convenient for you to get there by No. 16 bus. Next, the classes are very small. There are 24 teaching hours a week. After class, you can enjoy sports and activities with other students. Staying with a Chinese family will provide you with a chance to practise your Chinese and know more about the Chinese family life. The time will suit you and only 200 yuan is paid per month. I’ll get in touch with them if you are interested in this school.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
