But the 5 is: there is no better time to be happy than right now. Your life will always be filled with challenges. It’s best to 6 this and decide to be happy anyway. One my 7 quotes (语录) comes from Alfred D. Souza, who said, “For a long time it had seemed to me life was about to begin---real life. But there was always some 8 in the way.” This viewpoint has helped me to see that there is no 9 to happiness. Happiness is the way itself. So, 10 every moment that you have now and share it with your loved ones… and 11 that time waits for no one.

the shark, while police hoped to identify its species by the shape of the bite marks. But they said it was too early to say what type of shark attacked the boy. “I don't even know if he saw it,”Miller said. Many shark species live in the waters off Sydney's beaches,but attacks on humans are still relatively rare. However,there were two attacks on successive days earlier this month,one on a navy diver in Sydney harbor,not far from the famous Opera House,and the other on a surfer at the city's world-famous Bondi beach. Fishermen say shark numbers are on the rise. There is a ban on commercial fishing in the harbor,which has increased fish stocks. Marine experts also claim environmental protection has created a cleaner environment,attracting sharks closer to the shore as they chase fish. Many shark species,including the Great White—the maneaters made famous in Steven Spielberg's Jaws—are protected in Australian waters. 31.The report mainly tells us ________. A.shark attacks on humans are on the rise B.sharks attacked humans three times in one month C.a boy was attacked by a shark at a Sydney beach D.shark numbers are increasing in the waters off Sydney's beaches 32.The underlined word “savaged” in the first paragraph probably means “________”.

After I started to go to high school, Lili and I were too busy to communicate much with each other. In biology class I began to be depressed. When the teacher showed us a picture of a butterfly, I was scared and screamed. I had a vision of thousands of butterflies flying to ward me. That night I told Lili about it. The next morning, I saw that she had red eyes with black circles around them. She took me to see a therapist (治疗师). Three hours later, the therapist told Lili that my life was like a wheel spinning (旋转) faster and faster and that was the reason for what had happened to me. I only realized it when my body couldn’t stand the pressure anymore. At these words, Lili burst into tears. “It’s all my fault, she’s just a kid and I didn’t have time to take care of her….” To be honest, I had never seen Lili cry before. After that, Lili began to spend more time at home, cooking and dragging me to do sports. I realized she was the one who would always be there when I was in real trouble.

Nobody knows for absolute certainty all the details of the life of Aesop. However, scholars have been working to established some facts and this is the brief story of Aesop as it is accepted today. Aesop was born a slave around the year 620 B.C. In Ancient Greece, it was a privilege and tradition of freedmen to be interested in public affairs, so Aesop worked hard to raise himself from a servile slave's position to a high position of renown. He was a thinker and philosopher and eventually became widely admired. Aesop was a smart man and a good speaker. He liked to learn and to also teach people, so he traveled through many countries. He came to Sardis, the capital of the famous king Croesus of Lydia who was a patron of learning and learned men. Croesus was so impressed by Aesop that he invited Aesop to permanently reside at Sardis. The king hired Aesop to do diplomatic government work such as trying to establish peace between the various republics of Greece. Aesop reconciled the inhabitants of these cities by telling his wise fables. It was on one of these ambassadorial missions that Aesop was killed. Croesus had sent him to Delphi with lots of gold which was to be distributed among the citizens. After talking with the people of Delphi, Aesop got so mad at the citizens because of their covetousness. He refused to divide the money and instead sent it back to his master. The Delphians were so mad they executed Aesop as a public criminal. As it often happens in Greek history, the Delphians were visited by a series of calamities as a sort of retribution for Aesop's death. This is where the phrase "the blood of Aesop" originated. The saying means "wrongful deeds will not go unpunished". In memory of Aesop, a statue was erected in Athens. The statue was created by the famous Greek sculptor, Lysippus. 41. Why did Aesop work so hard? A. Because he wanted to be an official. B. Because he desired to join in public affairs. C. Because he wanted to make more money. D. Because he wanted to write wise fables. 42. According to Paragraph 3, Aesop traveled through many countries to __________. A. spread knowledge B. seek help C. admire the scenery D. collect facts 43. Croesus hired Aesop to _______________. A. establish relations with other republics B. handle interal affairs of Lydia C. be in charge of his wealth D. publish the neighboring republics of Greece 44. Which of the following word can best describe Croesus? A. Strong-willed. B. Generous. C. Adventurous. D. Knowledgeable. 45. The phrase “the blood of Aesop” probably means “__________”. A. No pains, no gains. B. Well begun is half done. C. It’s no use crying over spilt milk. D. Wrongful deeds will not go unpunished. 第二节 信息匹配(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 阅读下列应用文及相关信息,并按照要求匹配信息。 首先, 请阅读下面招聘信息: A.
