Children dream of meeting Santa Claus and receive desirable presents. I'm sure that grandparents are waiting for their kids' and grandchildren's visit. If your holiday schedule is tightly packed, then you should find at least two hours to pay a visit to your grandparents. We often forget about three magic words “l love you". Love is not a sign of weakness and our grandparents deserve to hear these pleasant and healing words. Don't feel shy of showing and proving your love. Your hug and a frank smile can be the best cure for different diseases to your dear grandparents. Old people are very sensible creatures. They need both physical and mental supports. Younger people should be patient enough to pay attention, hear out and don't let their grandparents feel too old, lonely and useless. There're hundreds of ideas on how to make something good and useful for your grandparents. The best one is to bring a fresh and bushy Christmas tree to their house. Do your best to decorate it with lights and ribbons. Encourage your grandparents to do it together. Unfortunately, people are like candles. The light of their eyes can die out in a moment. Chances are high that their hearts will stop one day. Why don't we begin to value things before we lose them? I know that not everyone can answer this challenging question. I hope this week will bring a lot of joy to children, parents and their
grandparents. Don't forget to treat grandparents with respect because they're an essential part of your family. 24. How does the author describe children in the passage? A.

Chinese New Year's Day's date is calculated according to the Chinese lunar calendar. In 2015 it's Thursday, February 19. Many people clean their homes to welcome the Spring Festival. They put up the red posters with poetic verses on it to their doors, Chinese New Year pictures on their walls, and decorate their homes with red lanterns. It is also a time to reunite with relatives so many people visit their families at this time of the year. In the evening of the Spring Festival Eve, many people set off fireworks and firecrackers, hoping to cast away any bad luck and bring forth good luck. Children often receive lucky money. Many people wear new clothes and send Chinese New Year greetings to each other. Various activities such as beating drums and striking gongs, as well as dragon and lion dances, are all part of the Spring Festival festivities.
The Spring Festival is a national holiday in China. Government offices, schools, universities and many companies are closed during the period from the Spring Festival Eve to the seventh day of the first lunar month in the Chinese calendar. However, some enterprises such as banks often arrange for workers to be on shift duty. Public transport is available during the Chinese New Year period. The red posters with poetic verses on it were initially a type of amulet(驱 邪物) , but now it simply means good fortune and joy. Various Chinese New Year symbols express different meanings. For example, an image of a fish symbolizes “having more than one needs every year". A firecracker symbolizes “good luck in the coming year". The festival lanterns symbolize “pursuing the bright and the beautiful". 28. The passage mainly tells us . A.

Fast food advertisements significantly affect teens' eating habits, leading to consequences such as obesity. TV Advertising The television is the largest source of food ads to teens. It is worth noting that TV watching may not be the chief cause of obesity, but rather the fast food commercials. This implies that fast food commercials greatly influence teens' eating habits, since food is the most advertised item on
television. Online Advertising The Internet has become part of a teen's daily life. Fast food manufacturers have taken advantage of this to target teenagers with food commercials. McDonald's corporation has created websites such as 365Black. com. which target minority groups. MeEncanta. com is a McDonald's website that targets Latino youth, who are four and a half times more likely than other youth to visit the site. Eating Habits There is a strong connection between teens' eating habits and fast food commercials. In a study of more than 12,000 teenagers to inquire into the effects of fast food advertising on teenagers, teens who spent more than two hours watching commercial TV were likely to allow themselves to eat more unhealthy foods like fast foods, sugary drinks and snacks than those who did not. Obesity Teens who view fast food ads are at a higher risk of becoming overweight than those who do not, reports the American Academy of Pediatrics. In a survey of 3,342 youths aged between 15 and 23 researchers found that a higher percentage of obese and overweight participants identified with fast food ads. 32. What's the author's attitude to fast food advertisements? A. Objective. B. Favorable. C. Critical. D. Doubtful. 33. The author refers to two websites in the passage . A. to give examples of how the teenagers are affected B. to advise the young to learn the Internet C. to show manufacturers created the websites D. to warn teenagers not to visit such websites 34. What does the underlined part in the passage mean? A. Deal with. B. Look into. C. Change into. D. Lead to. 35. It can be concluded from the passage that A. all the teenagers like to watch fast food advertisements B. parents must forbid their children to watch TV programs C. teachers must know what fast food advertisements are D. teenagers should be away from fast food advertisements 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。 Teenagers are especially likely to suffer loneliness. Here are some suggestions
for speeding a recovery from loneliness. Reach out to others, but start small.A smile and a friendly greeting for the student behind you in line at the cafeteria won't make you best friends. 36 It also can make it easier to interact（一起活动）the next time. Find a safe place to make connections. If going to the school dance makes you feel like you just don't belong, try joining a special-interest group. Maybe it's the drama club or the marching band. 37 Find other ways of making connections. Lonely people hunger for acceptance and friendship. Sometimes feeling accepted and liked comes more easily when you do something for others. 38 Teach a child in reading. Take notes for a disabled classmate. You might be surprised at the connections you make after reaching out in these ways. 39 Loneliness is an absence of quality friendships, not of a particular quantity of friends. That's why it's important to know how to select a friend. The best friendships are those based on similar values and attitudes. You get what you expect, so expect the best. If you expect others to be friendly, you will behave in similar ways. 40 it goes away as teens learn how to find their way through their social world and connect with others. A. But it will make you both feel pretty good. B. So consider becoming a volunteer. C. Some teens aren't so adaptable, however. D. Encourage people to be friendlier to you. E. Choose the right people. F. For most young people, loneliness is only temporary. G. Look for a group that allows you to ease in gradually. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A.B.C 和 D）中，选出可以填人空白处 的最佳选项，并在答 题卡上将该项涂黑。 For Donna Peters,a dream of living in Cowra comes true.
