We all like to feel close to someone. It is nice to have a friend to talk，laugh，and do things with. Surely，there are times when
we need to be alone. We don't always want people around. But we would feel lonely if we never had a friend. No two people are just the same. Sometimes friends don't get along well. That doesn't mean that they no longer like each other. Most of the time they will make up and go on being friends. Sometimes friends move away. Then we feel very sad. We miss them very much. But we call them and write to them. It could be that we would even see them again. And we can make new friends. It is surprising to find out how much we like new people when we get to know them. Families sometimes name their children after a close friend. Many places are named after men or women who have been friendly to people in town. Some libraries are named this way. So are some schools. We think of these people when we go to these places. There's more good news for people who have friends. They live longer than people who don't. Why？It could be that they are happier. Being happy h elps you stay well. Or it could be just knowing that someone cares. If someone cares about you，you take better care of yourself. 36．The main idea of this passage is ______. A．that people are all friends B．that people need friends C．how to get to know friends D．h ow to name a place 37．Friends ______. A．get along well all the time B．no longer like each other C．sometimes don't get along well D．don't move away 38．Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A．People are not happy when their friends leave them. B．People can know their friends in different ways. C．People will never see their friends after they move away. D．People like their friends very much if they get to know them. 39．Why do people who have friends live longer than those who don't? A．Because they feel happier and are healthy. B．Because they get a lot of help from their friends. C．Because they take better care of their friends. D．Because they are being well taken care of by their doctors. 解题导语：本文是一篇说明文，主要说明了在学校我们该如何做才能成为别人的好朋 友。 B One of the most important things in the world is friendship.In order to have friends，you have to be a friend. But how can you be a good friend at school? Listen—Listen when they are talking.Don't say anything unless they ask you a question.Sometimes it's not necessary for you to have anything to say；they just
need someone to talk to about their feelings. Help them—If your friend is ever in need of something， be there to help them.You should try to put them first，but make sure you don't do everything they want you to do.Try to take an extra(额外的) pencil or pen with you to classes in case(以 防) they forget one.Have a little extra money in your pocket in case they forget something they need. Be there for them—Try to make something for your friend to help make them feel better in hard times.Making cards and encouraging them are among the nicest things you can do for a friend.Marilyn Monroe，a famous U．S.actor，once said， “I often make mistakes.Sometimes I am out of control.But if you can't stay with me at my worst，you are sure not to deserve(值得) to be with me at my best.”Always remember this！If you don't want to stay with your friends when they're in hard times，then you don't deserve to be with them when they're having a good time! ______—Try to make plans with your friends.Go shopping，go for ice cream， have a party，go to a movie and so on.Take time to know each other even better by doing something you both enjoy.By planning things together，you both can have a good time.And you'll remember these things when you're all old! 40．While your friend is talking to you about his or her feelings，you should ______.

B．Enjoy yourself. C．Understand your friends. D．Play with your friends. C My name is Chelsea Chowderhead.A chowder is a kind of soup.I was laughed at because of my last name as soon as I started school.So when my family moved to South Carolina，I asked my dad if I could change my name. “You shouldn't change who you are.Let people get to know you first and your name later.When you meet someone new，ask them a good question，something you're really interested in.Once people start talking about themselves ， they don't judge(评价) you.” Two days later I headed to my new s chool for the first day of class.At lunch， I noticed that there were twin brothers who were talking to each other.I remembered my dad's advice，so I decided to try.
I noticed that their lunchboxes were identical.“What's it like being a twin？” I asked. They looked surprised.Then one said，“No one has ev er asked us that！” “Most of the time it's good，”the other said.“When you're a twin you always have someone to talk to and have lunch with.” In no time we were laughing and talking.Then one of the brothers said，“I'm Nicholas，and this is my brother，Nathaniel.What's your name？” I took a deep breath and said，“I'm Chelsea Chowderhead.” “Chowder？Like the soup？”asked Nathaniel. “Yes，” I replied，looking down. “Hey，cool！Do you want to come over after school and play basketball with us？” Nathaniel asked.I nodded. And that is how I became friends with the twin brothers. 44．Why did the writer want to change his name? A．People made fun of it. B．He wanted to make more friends. C．It was hard to remember. D．He wanted to be cool in the new school. 45．The writer's father advised him to ______. A．move to a new class B．say hello to others C．share his interests D．ask good questions 46．The underlined word “identical” in Paragraph 4 probably means ______. A．same B．beautiful C．big D．full 47．When the twin brothers asked his name，the writer felt ______. A．surprised B．angry C．nervous D．proud D I decided to go to South Carolina to meet my former schoolmates there.“I could go by bus，but is there any other way？”I wondered.Suddenly an idea occurred to me. On the school bulletin boa rd(布告牌)，I put up a notice：“Need a drive to Columbia，South Carolina.Weekend.Will share gas.Call Yu at 3853427.” Jim called.He was a student of history and was going to South Carolina to meet his girl friend.We arranged where to meet and when to start.Then I prepared food and drinks enough for two persons. It was a long way.Jim proved himself to be a good driver by driving his car fast and steady(稳)．The cars in front of us were lagging behind one by one.From time to time I served him with food and drink，and we enjoyed talking a lot. Jim showed great interest in Chinese history. “It's wonderful that you have such a long history，”he said，“Maybe one day I will visit China as a history researcher.”“Good idea！I will be your tour guide.”I encouraged his future plan. We talked and laughed all the way to the very doorstep of my friends'
flat.“I'll come to pick you up on Sunday morning at 10.”Saying this，he drove away. Needless to say，it was a happy reunion for several of our old schoolmates to meet in a foreign country.We had photos taken，and made jiaozi in a big flat.“For our getting togethe r in the US，cheers！”we proposed(提议) to drink to this happy moment. In South Carolina there were many Shanxi Chinese students ， because South Carolina and Shanxi have a sistership connection，which was set up through the help of the Chinese ambassador(大使) to the US，who was also from S hanxi.When those I met got to know that I had once settled down in Shanxi for eight years，they all talked to me like fellow villagers. The good time passed quickly.It wasn't long before Jim came to pick me up.All of my friends got out to see me off.We shook hands and promised to communicate with each other as often as possible.I waved good?bye to them as the car drove away. 48．From the passage we know that the writer was a Chinese ______. A．tour guide B．traveller C．student D．ambassador 49．The writer must have ______ the trip. A．paid nothing at all for B．suffered a great deal because of C．spent a dozen of days on D．paid for half of the gas during 50．The underlined sentence in the fourth paragraph suggests that ______. A．Jim drove at a high speed B．the road was rather crowded C．they didn't start early D．Jim's car ran very slowly 51．We can conclude from the passage that ______. A．Jim and the writer didn't study at the same school B．the writer didn't return to the school in Jim's car C．Jim was not easy to get along with D．the writer seemed not to be from Shanxi E Two may well be the number of kids accepted by most Americans.But for many， deciding how many kids they could or should have isn't that easy.As today's couples are starting families at older ages than their parents or grandparents，and they are facing the pressure of low pay and increased job demands，many are looking for help making the “right” decision about family size. Well，the idea of two children wasn't always the generally accepted standard， says Steven Mintz，an expert on childhood and culture.In 1800，most American women had seven to ten children，he says.But by the end of the 20th century—and as women became a growing presence in the workplace—two became the number of kids people wanted. What has changed，Mintz suggests，is the way adults view children. “In earlier times，kids were clearly assets(财产)，”he says.“You put them to work，and they took care of you when you were old，and you didn't have to spend on their education.What is happening now is that we begin to believe children require investment(投资) in order to have a successful future.”
Robin Gorman Newman became a mother at 42.She says there's a lot of pressure on parents of only children. “Moms feel like they should have had more than one，”she says.But part of the reason is that “they don't want to feel they're burdening(加负担于) their child when they get into old age.” In his new book，Creating Your Perfect Family Size：How to Make an Informed Decision About Having a Baby，Alan Singer suggests things to think about when trying to find the perfect number for your own family，rather than arguing what number of kids is the best. “We've been forced into thinking two children is the perfect size for a family，”says Susan Newman，author of The Case for the Only Child：Your Essential Guide. She isn't suggesting one?child families are right for everyone，but “it's an increasingly popular decision”． 52．Why did two become the standard number of kids by the end of 20th century? A．Because many couples started families at older ages. B．Because many women were tired of taking care of children. C．Because more and more women began working outside their families. D．Because many couples didn't have enough money to raise more children. 53．Which of the following is adults' view on children nowadays? A．Children are their assets. B．Children shouldn't work at an early age. C．Parents have to spend money in order to help their children succeed. D．Parents should depend on their child ren when they get into old age. 54．What's the main idea of Alan Singer's new book? A．What should be considered when deciding the number of kids. B．Parents' realization of their investment in children has gone up. C．How to decide the best time to have a baby. D．What number of kids is the best for a family. 55．What's the best title for the text? A．Why do women decide to have fewer children nowadays? B．Does family size matter？For today's families it does! C．The great pressure today's parents are facing D．The change of family size through the years
