Sometimes they try to remember a solution from the last time they had a 16 problem. They often accept the opinions or ideas of other people. Sometimes they begin to act without thinking. They try to find a solution by trial and error. Instead, when all of these methods 17, the person with a problem has to start analyzing. There are six stages in analyzing a problem. First, the person must recognize that there is a problem. For example, Sa m?s bicycle is broken, and he cannot ride it to class as he usually does. Sam must 18 that there is a problem with the bicycle. Next, the person must find the problem. Before Sam can repair his bicycle, he must know why it does not work. For example, he must 19 the parts that are wrong. Now the person must look for 20 that will make the problem clearer and lead to 21 solutions. After 22 the problem, the person should have 23 suggestions for a possible solution. Take Sam as an example 24 , his suggestions might be: tighten or loosen the brakes; buy new brakes and change old ones. In the end, one 25 seems to be the solution to the problem. Sometimes the 26 idea comes quite 27 because the thinker suddenly sees something new or sees something in a different way. Sam, for example, suddenly sees there is a piece of chewing gum stuck to a brake. He 28 hits on the solution to his problem: he must 29 the brake. Finally the solution is 30 . Sam does it and finds his bicycle works perfectly. In short, he has solved the problem. 16. A. serious B. usual C. similar D. comm on 17. A. fail B. work C. change D. develop

Songs from Elvis Presley to Ricky Martin, from the Beatles to Eminem and from Natalie Cole to Britney Spears have all been enjoyed by people around the world, even for people who don?t speak English,
and even for people who speak zero English. From my experience, some people listen to English songs for 20-30 years but still don?t achieve any good English skills. Some people choose English songs to be their main learning method, but most of them fail. Listening to English songs does not help you to speak English fluently. It does help you gain some vocabulary, but most of these words are unusual ones that you don?t use in everyday life. You won?t learn the sentence “It is a difficult project. We really need to meet the deadline.” in any English songs. All you will hear are love, passion, affection, hate and blue, for the feeling, not the color. People like using English songs to practice English skills because it?s easy and enjoyable. They think that sitting in the car listening to English songs day after day will improve their English skills. It actually will not. You will definitely not improve your listening skills because normal people don?t speak with a tune. People don?t talk like Eminem?s songs. You can?t get yourself familiar with English pronunciation or accent just from listening to English songs. The words that they pronounce in the songs are not the words that you will hear in your everyday life. They can even confuse you more about how English is pronounced. I would fully encourage you to watch English movies and listen to radio news or other normal talks, but not music. Of course, you can consume it for fun but not with the aim of improving your English skills. Having good English skills is not that easy. Remember you should work hard to improve your English step by step. 41. According to the passage, listening to English songs can help you _____ A. improve your English grammar B. speak English more fluently C. gain the skills of writing D. learn more new words 42. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage? A. Most people think it is convenient to learn English by listening to English songs. B. It?s hard for people to improve their listening skills by listening to English songs. C. It?s a good idea to learn to speak with an English accent by listening to English songs. D. It?s rare to hear normal people speak English like they are singing. 43. What can we learn about the words in English songs? A. Most of them are vivid and interesting. B. They are seldom used in people?s everyday life. C. English learners should learn more of them. D. They can help people improve their pronunciation. 44. It can be inferred from the passage that the writer may be _____. A. an experienced English learner B. a well-known pop singer C. a Chinese music fan D. an American teacher 45. The last paragraph is written mainly to _____. A. give us some advice on how to learn English B. encourage us to go to see more films C. tell us learning English is hard for everyone D. warn us not to listen to music in our daily life
(B) Imagine a classroom missing the one thing that?s long been considered a necessary part to reading and writing -- paper. No notebooks, no textbooks, no test paper. Nor are there any pencils or pens, which always seem to run out of ink at the critical moment. A “paperless classroom” is what more and more schools are trying to achieve. Students don?t do any handwriting in this class. Instead, they use palm （手掌）size, or specially-designed computers. The teacher downloads texts from Internet libraries and sends them to every student?s personal computer. Having computers also means that students can use the Web. They can look up information on any subject they?re studying from maths to social science. High school teacher Judy Herrell in Florida, US, described how her class used the Web to learn about the war in Afghanistan over one year ago. “We could touch every side of the country through different sites, from the forest to refugee camps（难民营）,” she said. “Using a book that?s three or four years old is impossible.” And exams can go online too. At a high school in Tennessee, US, students take tests on their own computers. The teacher records the grades on the network for everyone to see and then copies them to his own electronic grade book. A paperless classroom is a big step towards reducing the waste of paper. High school teacher Stephanie Sorrell in Kentucky, US, said she used to give about 900 pieces of paper each week to each student. “Think about the money and trees we could save with the computers,” she said. But, with all this technology, there?s always the risk that the machines will break down. So, in case of a power failure or technical problems, paper textbooks are still widely available for these hi-tech students. 46. What does the part of the last sentence in the first paragraph, “run out of ink at the critical moment” mean? A. Pens may not write well at the critical moment. B. Pens get lost easily, so you may not find them at the critical moment. C. Pens may have little or no ink at the critical moment. D. Pens use ink, while pencils don?t. 47. In a paperless classroom, what is a must? A. Pens. B. Computers. C. Information. D. Texts. 48. The high school teacher, Judy Herrell, used the example of her class to show that ________. A. the Web could take them everywhere B. the Web taught them a lot C. the Web is a good tool for information D. the Web, better than the textbooks, can give the latest and comprehensive （全面的） information 49. The paperless classrooms will benefit ________ the most. A. students B. teachers C. trees D. computers 50. What does the phrase in the last paragraph ?break down? mean?
A. Break into pieces. C. Fall down.
B. Stop working. D. Lose control
(C) Did anyone find the names of “Great Britain”, “the United Kingdom”, “England” and “the British commonwealth” which have the same meaning? Strictly speaking, these names all refer to something different. None of them are exactly the same as any of the others. The British isles refer to the main islands and several thousand small ones as well, which you can see on the map. Great Britain, or Britain, refers to the larger of the two main islands. But the word “Britain” is often used as a short form for the United Kingdom or you call it the UK. N ow as for England, it refers simply to the largest of the three countries on the island of Great Britain. The United Kingdom is the name of the state and the official name of the country, which many people popularly refer to England. Finally, the Britain commonwealth is the usual name for what is left of the British Empire (帝 国). This change shows the weakening of British Empire and the rising of the national liberation movements throughout the world today. 51. According to the passage, we know that _____________. A. Great Britain has the same meaning as Britain B. all the names refer to England C. the United Kingdom has the same meaning as Britain or England D. all the names in the first paragraph have the same meaning 52. It is clear that the British isles refer to _____________. A. Britain, England and the UK B. the two main islands and thousands of small ones C. three countries and several islands D. Great Britain or the United Kingdom 53. We can infer that . A. The country hasn?t an exact name. B. Few people know its real name. C. All the names have exact meaning. D. Generally speaking,the names can all be used to stand for the country. 54. Which of the following shows the right relationship (关系) between the British isles (BI), Britain (B) and England (E)? A. B>BI>E. B. BI>E>B. C. E>B>BI. D. BI>B>E. 55. If you want to write to someone in Edinburgh that lies in Scotland, you should write the address as _____________. A. Edinburgh, England B. Edinburgh, Scotland ,Great Britain C. Scotland, Edinburgh, England D. Great Britain, Scotland, Edinburgh

The survey aroused a heated discussion across the country and people from all walks of life expressed their opinions. " I would say I'm pretty happy at present because my dear daughter has graduated from college and found herself a good job. " said a woman in her fifties with a big smile on her face. Though it seemed that most people said they were happy, different voices were still heard and should not be ignored. There was a migrant worker( 农民工 ) whose answer to the question was widely spread online. When asked if he was happy, he said " My family name is Zeng", showing his determination to refuse the interview as well as his annoyance to mention happiness.

The Nobel Prize winner Mo Yan said he didn't know whether he was happy or not. At present, I am pretty happy because I am doing what I like. As a high school student, I study hard every day and live it to the fullest. It feels good to study hard to fulfill my dreams. It reminds me of the experience of receiving the scholarship in the middle school. It was a time when my family was going through the extreme financial difficulties. So I made up my mind to win the scholarship, hoping to lighten my parents' financial burden. With great efforts, I made it. At the ceremony, I could see my mom’s smile was brightest among those parents. It was the happiest thing that I will treasure forever. As far as I am concerned, happiness lies in the effort of making those we love smile. When we bring happiness to them, it gives happiness to ourselves.
