More and more people are increasingly turning towards their friends for support and sharing rather than just communicating with their relatives. We may have a very unclear understanding of what makes a friend but we all want to have many good friends around us. There are certain steps that can win you friends or at least help you get close to those whom you want to make friends with. The first step to make friends with someone is to make him like you. If they don’t like you in the first place, it is unlikely that they’ll be eager to become your friends. To let someone know that you are interested in him, simple gestures like a little smile and calling him by his name can help. To make the other person feel important, you need to be a good listener and encourage the other person to talk. Give your honest and real opinions but do not make fun of him or her. The second step is to develop a full consideration between each other. You need to share his or her opinions. So, it is necessary for you to develop a habit of seeing things from the other person’s point of view. To become a best friend, you must show concern and consideration for your friend’s desires and opinions. The third and final step is to show your support and encouragement towards your friend. Moreover, you also need to be very clear about your expectations from your friend. If what you expect from the person you want to make friends with matches with what that person can and want to do in friendship, the developing friendship between you and your friend is sure to be easy and successful.
56. What can we learn about friends and friendship? A. Friendship is less important in our life. B. Friends do harm to our health and energy. C. Friends can provide us with support. D. Relatives can not become friends. 57. Which is the right order of making friends according to the writer? ①When you meet some questions, you ask him for help. ② When he is in trouble, you tell him your idea. ③ You smile to him to make him know that you like him. A. ②①③ B. ①②③ C. ③①② D. ③②① 58. What is the main purpose of the writer in writing the passage? A. To tell us the importance of making friends. B. To tell about advantages and disadvantages of making friends. C. To tell us how to make friends step by step. D. To tell us that friends are hard to make. B China’s government has been trying all measures to reduce pollution in the past few years. Now people can enjoy a fresh environment everywhere. The following two graphs are adopted from the column of “City Information” on the webpage of Beijing Review.
Graph 2: Chinese National Standard API Values When the API is in this range: 0 to 50 51 to 100 101 to 150 151 to 200 201 to 250 251 to 300 301 to 500 Levels of health concern ...air quality conditions are: Very good Good Slight pollution Moderate pollution Medium pollution High pollution Hazardous Colors ...as symbolized by this color: Blue Green Yellow Orange Red Purple Brown
Notes: **API stands for Air Pollution Index(指数). **Particulate matter (PM10) is a major component of air pollution that threatens both our health and our environment. It consists of very small liquid and solid particles floating in the air. **Sulfur dioxide(SO2) acts as an acid． Inhalation(吸入) results in labored breathing, coughing, or a sore throat and may cause permanent lung damage. 59. According to Graph 1, which of the following cities has the worst air pollution?
A. Qinhuangdao. B. Tianjin. C. Qingdao D. Shenyang 60. If your city is symbolized by either red or purple, the pollution in your city is ___________. A. Moderate or high. B. Moderate or slight. C. Medium or high. D. Medium or slight. 61. Which of the following statements is TURE? A. With API value below 150 the air is free from being polluted. B. The colors from purple to yellow indicate the air quality is becoming much worse. C. When there are floating solid particles and dust in the air, it is dangerous pollution. D. On September 8th the color-symbol of Beijing City’s air quality is ‘Blue’. 62. When more citizens are beginning to have labored breathing soon after they are in the open air, it suggests that _____________. A. there is a large amount of sulfur dioxide in the air B. it is so cold that they may have caught a cold C. they are starting to cough or have a fever D. they must be infected with permanent lung disease C For centuries, the body’s blood has been linked closely with the emotions. People who show no human emotions or feelings, are said to be cold-blooded killers. For example, the police are searching for a cold-blooded killer. He seems to kill for no reason, and no emotion, as if taking someone’s life as nothing. Cold can affect other parts of the body. The expression “get cold feet” has nothing to do with cold or your feet. The expression means being afraid to do something you have decided to do. For example, you agree to be president of an organization. But then you learn that all the other officers have resigned, and all the work of the organization will be your responsibility. You are likely to get cold feet about being president when you understand the situation. The expression “give someone the cold shoulder” probably comes from the physical act of turning your back toward someone, instead of speaking to him face to face. You may give a cold shoulder to a friend who has not kept a promise he made to you. Or, to someone who has lied about you to others. A cold fish is not a fish. It is a person. But it is a person who is unfriendly, unemotional and shows no love or warmth. A cold fish does not offer much of himself to anyone. Someone who is a cold fish could be cold-hearted. Now a cold-hearted person is someone who has no sympathy. Several popular songs in recent years were about cold-hearted men or cold-hearted women who, without feelings, broke the hearts of their lovers. Out in the cold means not getting something that everybody else got. A person might say that everybody but him got a pay raise---he was left out in the cold. And it is not a pleasant place to be. 63. There are _________ expressions related to cold that are mentioned in the passage. A. 3 will say _________. A. she is a cold-blooded killer C. she is a cold fish B. she gets cold feet D. she is out in the cold
64. If Sue shows absolutely no reaction to those awful pictures of starving children in Africa, you
65. We can use the expression “__________” to describe a man who abandons or hurts his lover without mercy. A. cold-blooded B. cold shoulder C. cold feet D. cold-hearted 66. The topic of this passage is about _________. A. the relationship between cold and our body B. some expressions about friendship C. some expressions connected with cold D. how cold weather comes into being

Parents “My daughter was so excited about the Korean-style uniform, saying it’s her dream to wear miniskirt to school every day,” a mom surnamed Cheng complained. “My daughter also called her classmates to talk about how handsome the boys looked in the uniform!” Cheng looked on the Internet and found that most Korean schoolboy uniforms are similar to western suits. “They are so handsome! My daughter is a fan of Korean fashion; that’s why she is crazy about the uniform!” Cheng said. “If the students wear such beautiful uniforms, how can they study well? I prefer the sports-wear which make me think of health and positive thinking.” School “The plan to change the current school uniform from sports-wear has been called off.” an employee of the school told the Jinling Evening Paper. “The students dislike the current uniform, so the school took advice from the students last November, knowing that most students prefer Korean or Japanese-style school uniforms. We know cities like Shanghai and Guang zhou have changed their sports-wear school uniforms to styles in fashion,” an employee surnamed Lin said. “However, we had to give up the plan because many parents are strongly against it. Some parents think it’s just a way for the school to make money, and others think the new uniforms will take students’ attention away from their studies.” Lin said. When asked about the possibility of problems with early romance between students because of the fashionable uniforms, Lin said they hadn’t considered it. He, however, agreed that the Korean-style uniform makes the students more charming. Students The disappointment of the students is beyond doubt at the school’s final decision. They think the sports-wear uniforms make them look androgynous(难分性别的). They said the Korean-style uniform has many advantages such as raising interest in class; lifting confidence; improving solidarity(团结) and creating good temperaments(气质). As for concerns about romance, the students believe that love is love and bears no relationship to the uniforms. Education department “We don’t have a unified(统一的) standard for school uniforms. The schools can choose their own styles. Either sports-wear or uniforms are OK,” an official from the Nanjing Bureau of
Education said. Title: Do pretty school uniforms lead to early romance? Event A technical secondary school planned to order Korean-style school uniforms for students ?
