Intelligence is a born ability while goodness is a choice. Gifts are easy – they’re given after all. Choice can be hard. I got the idea to start Amazon 16 years ago. I came across the fact that the Internet usage was growing at 2300 percent per year. I'd never seen or heard of anything that grew that fast, and the idea of building an online bookstore with millions of titles was very exciting to me. I had just turned 30 years old, and I’d been married for a year. I told my wife MacKenzie that I wanted to quit my job and go to do this crazy thing that probably wouldn’t work since most start-ups don’t and I wasn’t sure what to expect. MacKenzie told me I should go for it. As a young boy, I’d been a garage inventor. I’d always wanted to be an inventor, and she wanted me to follow my passion.

I was working at a financial firm in New York City with a bunch of very smart people and I had a brilliant boss that I much admired. I went to my boss and told him I wanted to start a company selling books on the Internet. He took me on a long walk in Central Park, listened carefully to me, and finally said, “That sounds like a really good idea, but it would be an even better idea for someone who didn’t already have a good job.” That logic made some sense to me, and he convinced me to think about it for 48 hours before making a final decision. Seen in that light, it really was a difficult choice, but finally, I decided I had to give it a shot. I didn’t think I’d regret trying and failing. And I suspected I would always be haunted by a decision to not try at all. After much consideration, I took the less safe path to follow my passion, and I’m proud of that choice. For all of us, in the end, we are our choice. 2l.What inspired the author with the idea of building an online bookstore? A. His dream of being an inventor. B. The support of his wife. C. The greatly increasing usage of the Internet. D. Millions of exciting titles. 22. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined sentence? A. The idea of not trying would keep coming to his mind and disturb him. B. He would be very excited if he tried it out. C. He would be always having a doubt if he didn’t tr y. D. The decision to not try the online bookstore would terrify him. 23. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage? A Cleverness and Kindness B. The Starting of Amazon C. Following My Passion D. We Are What We Choose 24. We can know from the passage that_______ A. the boss thought the idea was suitable for the author B. the author wanted someone else to try the idea C. the author might not regret if he failed the idea D. the author might go back to his boss if he failed B With the development of modern society, human beings are increasingly invading wild animals’ habitat as well as the wild plants’. Nearly a third of the world’s cacti (仙人掌 ) are facing the threat of extinction, according to a shocking global assessment of the effects. Cacti are an important provider of food and water to desert wildlife ranging from wolves and deer to tortoises, bats and birds, and these fauna spread the plants’ seeds in return. But the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)’s first worldwide health check of the plants says that they are coming under huge pressure from human activities such as land use changes, commercial and residential developments and shrimp farming. But the paper said the driver of cacti species extinction was the “uncontrolled collection of live plants and private decorating collections, and annual agriculture.” The findings were described as “disturbing” by Inger Anderson, the IUCN’s director-general. “They confirm that the scale of the illegal wildlife trade, including the trade in plants is much greater than we had previously thought, and that wildlife illegal trade concerns many more species than the elephants which tend to receive global attention.” Cacti are almost always delicious but unlike most others, they store water in their stems alone,

enabling them to survive extreme draughts. The plants can be as small as one centimeter in diameter and grow above 19 meters in height. Well over half of the species are used by humans for display decoration, food or medicine. Almost 1,500 types of cacti were surveyed by the IUCN specialists over a five-year period, mostly in America. Dealing with the illegal trade is a hard task as they can be hidden in suitcases or even socks. While cou ntries such as Peru have made progress in blocking the illegal trade, the IUCN is calling for more strictly carrying out the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (Cites) in the “hotspots” of Uruguay, Brazil and Chile. Mexico has made advances but still has work to do, according to Goettsch. 25. What does the third paragraph mainly tell us? A. What causes cacti species extinction B. What gives people pressure C. What IUCN has found D. What farmers have planted 26. In Inger Anderson’s opinion, ________. ?. the findings of the IUCN are not disturbing B. the illegal plant trade is less serious than we had thought C. cacti have received much global attention D. the illegal plant trade threatens lots of wildlife 27. Why is it hard to fight against cacti trade ? A. Because cacti can be made into socks. B. Because cacti are easy to carry secretly. C. Because many countries carry out Cites strictly. D. Because some countries made advances to trade cacti. C It is widely acknowledged that nearly every kid might come across some kind of school bullying, however, the age at which kids first fall victim to bullying (欺侮) could influence how strongly they are affected, suggests a new study. And, surprisingly, it is not the youngest kids who are hurt the most in the long term. Bullying can have long-lasting effects, but particularly when it begins in adolescence, the researchers say. people subjected to either verbal ( 口头的) or physical bullying are known to be at greater risk of developing depression, anxiety disorders or to behave violently. But not everyone reacts in this way. C hildren bullied for the first time before they hit adolescence seem to get over it, but those who are bullied for the first time later on in adolescence seem to become more aggressive or are more likely to turn to drink as the conclusions of psychologist Matthew Newman and colleagues of Texas at Austin, US. The team gave questionnaires to nearly 1,500 college students regarding their experience of physical and psychological bullying before adolescence- before high school- and in late adolescence- at high school. They assessed mood and mental state, judging by signs of anxiety or depression, such as sleeplessness. The group was also questioned about how they would react to certain challenges, such as humiliation. People who were bullied all revealed slightly higher levels of stress. But while those bullied earlier in life seemed to respond normally to provocation (煽动), people bullied for the first time late in adolescence are more withdrawn and sensitive to violence. There are also sex differences between those bullied for the first time during adolescence, with females m ore likely to react aggressively when provoked and males are much more likely to turn to alcohol to escape bad situations. The best solution in all cases was strong social support, whether

from friends, family or school. Those with no one to share their problems with suffered the most. So perhaps it is best not to shelter children completely from bullying early on, suggests Newman “They may get stressed, but unhealthy coping really jumps out when they are bullied for the first time later on.” 28. What determines the degree of bullying’s effect on people according to the study? A. The reason why they are bullied. B. The place where they are first bullied. C. The age at which they are first bullied. D. The person who first bullies them. 29. What may happen to those first bullied later on in adolescence according to Newman and his colleagues? A. Some are likely to be more aggressive. B. They seem to easily get over the effect of bullying. C. Most of them will respond to bullying normally. D. Most of them are afraid of sharing their problems. 30. What does the underlined word “humiliation” in Paragraph 4 mean? A. Carrying out an important plan. B. Being made to feel ashamed C. Trying hard to survive an accident. D. Feeling hopeless in an emergency. 31. The sex differences between people bullied for the first time during adolescence are reflected in _______. A. the support they get from the society B. the effect bullying has on them C. the way they react to provocation D. the type of bullying they receive
