A. a cook B. a waitress C On a sunny day last August, Tim heard some shouting. Looking out to the sea carefully, he saw a couple of kids in a rowboat were being pulled out to sea. Two 12yearold boys, Christian and Jack, rowed out a boat to search for a football. Once they'd rowed beyond the calm waters, a beach umbrella tied to the boat caught the wind and pulled the boat into the open water. The pair panicked and tried to row back to shore. But they were no match for it and the boat was out of control. Tim knew it would soon be swallowed by the waves. “Everything went quiet in my head，”Tim recalled (回忆)．“I was trying to figure out how to swim to the boys in a straight line.” Tim took off his clothes and jumped into the water. Every 500 yards or so, he raised his head to judge his progress. “At one point, I considered turning back，” he says.“ I wondered if I was putting my life at risk.” After 30 minutes of struggling, he was close enough to yell to the boys, “Take down the umbrella！” Christian made much effort to take down the umbrella. Then Tim was able to catch up and climb aboard the boat. He took over rowing, but the waves were almost too strong for him. “Let's aim for the pier (码头)，” Jack said. Tim turned the boat toward it. Soon afterward, waves crashed over the boat, and it began to sink. “Can you guys swim？” he cried. “A little bit，” the boys said. Once they were in the water, Tim decided it would be safer and faster for him to pull the boys toward the pier. Christian and Jack were wearing life jackets and floated on their backs. Tim swam toward land as water washed over the boys' faces. “Are we almost there？” They asked again and again. “Yes，” Tim told them each time. After 30 minutes, they reached the pier. 28．Why did the two boys go to the sea? A．to go boat rowing. B．to get back their football. C．to swim in the open water. D．to test the umbrella as a sail. 29．What does “it” in Paragraph 2 refer to? A．the beach. B．the water. C．the boat. D．the wind. 30．Why did Tim raise his head regularly? A．to take in enough fresh air.

B．They swam to the pier all by themselves. C．They were washed to the pier by the waves. D．They were carried to the pier by Tim on his back. D People believed for a long time that the heart was the center of a person's emotions. That is why the word "heart" is used in so many expressions about emotional situations. One such expression is to "lose your heart" to someone. When that happens, you have fallen in love. But if the person who won your heart does not love you, then you are sure to have a "broken heart." In your pain and sadness, you may decide that the person you loved is "hard-hearted," and in fact, has a "heart of stone." You may decide to "pour out your heart" to a friend. Telling someone about your personal problems can often make you feel better. If your friend does not seem to understand how painful your broken heart is, you may ask her to "have a heart." You are asking your friend to show some sympathy for your situation. Your friend "has her heart in the right place" if she says she is sorry, and shows great concern for how you feel. Your friend may, however, warn you not to "wear your heart on your sleeve." In other words, do not let everyone see how lovesick you are. When your heart is on your sleeve you are showing your deepest emotions. If your friend says "my heart bleeds for you," she means the opposite. She is a cold-hearted person who does not really care about your situation. In the ever-popular motion picture, "The Wizard of Oz,"（绿野仙踪） the Tin Man seeks a heart. He wanted to feel the emotion of love, and was seeking help from the powerful Wizard of Oz to find a heart. The Cowardly Lion, in the same movie, did “have a heart”. But he lacked courage and wanted to ask the Wizard of Oz to give him some. You could say that the cowardly lion was "chicken-hearted." That is another way of describing someone who is not very brave. A chicken is not noted for its bravery. Thus, someone who is chicken-hearted does not have much courage. When you are frightened or concerned, your "heart is in your mouth." You might say, for example, that your heart was in your mouth when you asked a bank to lend you some money to pay for a new house. 32．What is the main idea of the passage? A．The heart was the center of a person's emotions. B．There are many expressions about heart and what do they mean. C．We should learn some expressions about “heart”. D．It is important to learn some expressions about “heart”
33．How many expressions about “Heart” are mentioned in the passage? A.10 B.8 C.9 D.11 34．If you hear one of your family members is hurt in a traffic accident, you will feel ________. A.heart is in your mouth. C. wear your heart on your sleeve A.To show that it is ever popular. B.To introduce a film to the readers C.To give some more examples about the phrases. D.To show that the Tin Man is not brave. 第二节 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余 选项。 Stress is a normal part of life and usually comes from everyday occurrences. __36__ ◆Try physical activity When you are nervous, angry or upset, try releasing the pressure through exercise or physical activity.__37__ ◆__38__ You should make every effort to eat well and get enough rest.
