A There was a gardener who looked after his garden with great care .To water his flowers, he used two buckets(水桶) .One was a shiny and new bucket. The other was a very old and dilapidated one,which had seen many years of service, but was now past its best. Every morning, the gardener would fill up the two buckets. Then he would carry them along the path, one on each side, to the flowerbeds. The new bucket was very proud of itself. It could carry a full bucket of water without a single drop spilled (溢出). The old bucket felt very ashamed because of its holes: before it reached the flowerbeds, much water had leaked (漏出) along the path. Sometimes the new bucket would say,“ See how capable I am ! How good it is that the gardener has me to water the flowers every day! I don't know why he still bothers with you. What a waste of space you are!” And all that the old bucket could say was. “ I know I am not very useful, but I can only do my best. I am happy that the gardener still finds a little bit of use in me, at least.” One day, the gardener heard that kind of conversation .After watering the flowers as usual, he said , “You both have done your work very well .Now I am going to carry you back .I want you to look carefully along the path.” Then the two buckets did so. All along the path, they noticed, on the side where the new bucket was carried, there was just bare(光秃秃的)earth; on the other side where the old bucket was carried, there was a joyous row of wild flowers, leading all the way to the garden. 36. What was the old bucket ashamed of? A. His past. B. His aging. C. His manner. D. His leaking. 37. What does the underlined word “dilapidated” probably mean? A. dirty B. dark C. worn-out D. ordinary-looking. 38.The new bucket made conversations with the old one mainly to _________. A. take pity on the old one B. laugh at the old one C. show off its beautiful looks D. praise the gardener’s kindness 39. Why was the old bucket still kept by the gardener? A. Because it was used to keep a balance B. Because it stayed in its best condition

C. Because it had its own function D. Because it was taken as a treasure B A German study suggests that people who were too optimistic about their future actually faced greater risk of disability or death within 10 years than those pessimists who expected their future to be worse. The paper, published this March in Psychology and Aging, examined health and welfare surveys from roughly 40,000 Germans between ages 18 and 96.The surveys were conducted every year from 1993 to 2003. Survey respondents were asked to estimate their present and future life satisfaction on a scale of 0 to 10, among other questions. The researchers found that young adults (age 18 to 39) routinely overestimated their future life satisfaction, while middle-aged adults (age 40 to 64) more accurately predicted how they would feel in the future.Adults of 65 and older, however, were far more likely to underestimate their future life satisfaction.Not only did they feel more satisfied than they thought they would, the older pessimists seemed to suffer a lower ratio of disability and death for the study period. “We observed that being too optimistic in predicting a better future than actually observed was associated with a greater risk of disability and a greater risk of death within the following decade.” wrote Frieder R.Lang, a professor at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. Lang and his colleagues believed that people who were pessimistic about their future may be more careful about their actions than people who expected a rosy future. “Seeing a dark future may encourage positive evaluations of the actual self and may contribute to taking improved precautions (预防措施),” the authors wrote. Surprisingly, compared with those in poor health or who had low incomes, respondents who enjoyed good health or income were associated with expecting a greater decline.Also, the researchers said that higher income was related to a greater risk of disability. The authors of the study noted that there were limitations to their conclusions.Illness, medical treatment and personal loss could also have driven health outcomes. However, the researchers said a pattern was clear.“We found that from early to late adulthood, individuals adapt their expectations of future life satisfaction from optimistic, to accurate, to pessimistic,” the authors concluded. 40.According to the study, who made the most accurate prediction of their future life satisfaction? A.Optimistic adults. B.Middle-aged adults. C.Adults in poor health. D.Adults of lower income. 41.Pessimism may be positive in some way because it causes people ______. A.to fully enjoy their present life B.to estimate their contribution accurately C.to take measures against potential risks D.to value health more highly than wealth 42.How do people of higher income see their future? A.They will earn less money. B.They will become pessimistic. C.They will suffer mental illness. D.They will have less time to enjoy life. 43.What is the clear conclusion of the study? A.Pessimism guarantees chances of survival. B.Good financial condition leads to good health. C.Medical treatment determines health outcomes.

D.Expectations of future life satisfaction decline with age. C Hello and welcome. My name is Shelley Ann Vernon and I am glad that you want to find out more about teaching English through games.

D (London) —If it really is what’ s on the inside that counts, then a lot of thin people might be in trouble. Some doctors now think that the internal(内部的) fat surrounding important organs like the heart or liver could be as dangerous as the external fat which can be noticed more easily. “Being thin doesn’t surely mean you are not fat,” said Dr Jimmy Bell at Imperial College. Since 1994, Bell and his team have scanned nearly 800 people with MRI machines to create “fat maps” showing where people store fat. According to the result, people who keep their weight through diet rather than exercise are likely to have major deposits(沉积物) of internal fat, even if they are slim. Even people with normal Body Mass Index scores can have surprising levels of fat deposits inside. Of the women, as many as 45 percent of those with normal BMI scores (20 to 25) actually had too high levels of internal fat. Among men, the percentage was nearly 60 percent. According to Bell, people who are fat on the inside are actually on the edge of being fat. They eat too many fatty and sugary foods, but they are not eating enough to be fat. Scientists believe we naturally store fat around the belly first, but at some point, the body may start storing it elsewhere. Doctors are unsure about the exact dangers of internal fat, but some think it has something to do with heart disease and diabetes. They want to prove that internal fat damages the body’s communication systems. The good news is that internal fat can be easily burned off through exercise or even by improving your diet. “If you want to be healthy, there is no short cut. Exercise has to be an important part of your lifestyle,” Bell said. 48. Doctors have found _____. A. being slim doesn’t mean you are not fat inside B. internal fat is the cause of heart disease and diabetes C. being slim is not dangerous at all D. the exact dangers of internal fat 49. According to the passage, which of the following is WRONG? A. Exercise can help to reduce the internal fat. B. People can get rid of internal fat by improving diet. C. Men are more likely to have too much internal fat. D. People with heart disease all have internal fat. 50. From the last paragraph, we can find that _____. A. whether internal fat can lead to disease has been proved B. exercise plays an important role in people’s life for keeping healthy C. thin people usually have internal fat even if they are slim D. it is easier to burn off internal fat than external fat 51.The underlined part in the last paragraph means _____. A. a long road B. a clear difference C. an easy way D. a short distance E For some students, especially those from poor families, taking a job is not a matter of choice, but necessity. They need to work to save for college, or even to supplement family income.

Counselors should help students who have a real need to work improve time management skills and seek employment that helps their educational goals. “College costs are high, and young adults also want the amenities (便利设施) that extra money brings,” according to John B. Boshoven, counselor for continuing education at Community High School in Michigan. However, he warns, “School is my students’ full-time job.” Studies show that students who work are more confident and possess better time management skills than students who are not employed. In addition to offering a paycheck, some independence, and satisfaction, a part-time job can provide teenagers with both training and experience. Working teaches students about responsibility and can also reinforce (充实) what they are learning in school. “Colleges want to find candidates who demonstrate maturity, responsibility, independence, and initiative, and good workers certainly demonstrate those important character traits,” Boshoven says. “Employers can write excellent recommendation letters for the students who have worked for them.” On the other hand, experts agree that students who work more than 15 to 20 hours per week often experience lessened school success, which can lead to dropping out entirely. Working long hours can also limit opportunities to build friendships and explore interests that enhance a teenager’s intellectual and emotional development. The major point that students should keep in mind is the importance of balance. Dan Crabtree, college and career counselor at Wheaton Academy in Illinois, explains, “We want our students to establish a healthy balance in life and work to maintain it throughout their lives.” If working will interfere with completing school work, participating in extracurricular activities, spending time with family and friends, or getting enough rest, it may not be a wise decision. 52.What’s the purpose of the passage? A.To show how students can find a part-time job. B.To explain what is a part-time job. C.To stress the importance of students’ part-time work. D.To discuss the issue of students’ part-time work. 53. In Boshoven’s opinion, students _____. a.shouldn’t depend on their families financially b.should take their studies as the first priority c.can benefit from part-time work d.can form healthy habits in their lives A.b c B.b d C.a b D.a c 54.According to the passage, we know that _____. A.without counselors' help, few students can get employed B.teenagers show strong interest in part-time work C.too much part-time work can lead to bad academic performance D.experts encourage students do more part-time work 55.What can be concluded from the passage? A.Part-time work is important for most students at college. B.Students should balance part-time work well with other things. C.Experts’ advice is the key to finding a good part-time job. D.All in all, students had better not spend time on part-time work.
