I felt an urge to explore the world and pursue my unknown dreams the moment I was able to climb up the tree growing just by a roll of wall near my house. When no mate played with me, I would climb it and sit on the top to see the scenery outside of the wall. You may ask me, what I had seen. Telling you the truth, there was nothing special. Outside of the wall was just a big vast farmland with green plants. Sitting on it, I saw flying birds catching insects, heard the sound of crickets, smelt the breath of greens, enjoyed the scene of seeding and harvesting, and counted the stars at night. They were quite simple and natural, but I strongly felt there was something unspeakable at that time. I could sense the tree was whispering me to go out to explore the world with my own feet and legs, and feel the world with my own heart. As time goes by, the tree disappears, and I am not a small boy anymore. The sky is not as blue and crystal as before; the green become less and less; the singing of the lovely birds is hard to catch. Living in the hazy and buzzy city, I often miss that a trace of peace and nature on the top of the tree rooted in my heart. Faced with fierce competitions and challenges, cold eyes, and dark sides of society, daily troubles, they automatically approach me like invisible angels making me calm and relieved, and endowing me confidence and power. 61. What can be inferred from the passage? A. The author lives in the countryside trees C. The author dislikes the city life 62. What does "something unspeakable" refer to? A. the scene of nature C. unknown dreams 63. Which is the best title? A. My world on the tree C. The world is changing 64. What's the style of the passage?

B. actors B. giving

B. The author likes climbing D. The author loves nature B. an urge to explore the world D. a kind of curiosity B. My dream D. My childhood C. fiction B. novel

Let us take an obvious example. Man, even from hundreds years ago, was shorter than he is today. Now, on average, men are about three inches taller. So we may assume that man will continue to grow taller. Again, in the modern world, we use our brains a great deal. Even so, we still make use of only about 20% of the brain’s capacity. This is likely to bring about a physical change too: the head, in particular the forehead, will grow larger. Nowadays, our eyes are in constant use. In fact, we use them so much that very often they become weaker and we have to wear glasses. But over a very long period of time, it is likely that man’s eyes will grow stronger. On the other hand, we tend to make less use of our arms and legs. These, as a result, are likely to grow weaker. At the same time, however, our fingers will grow more sensitive because they are used a great deal in modern life. But what about hair? This will probably disappear from the body altogether in course of time because it does not serve a useful purpose any longer. In the future, then, both sexes are likely to be bald. Perhaps all this gives the impression that future man will not be very attractive creature to look at! This may well be true. All the same, in spite of all these changes, future man will still have a lot in common with us. He will still be a human being, with thoughts and emotions similar to our own. 69. What serves as the evidence(证据) that man is changing? A. Man has got stronger eyes now than he ever had B. Man’s hair is getting thinner and thinner C. Man’s arms and legs have become lighter and weaker D. Man has been growing taller over the past 500 years 70. The change in man’s size of forehead will probably happen because___ A. he makes use of only 20% of the brain’s capacity B. his brain has grown larger over the past centuries C. the other 80% of his brain will grow in due time D. he will use his brain more and more as time goes on 71. What will be true about a human being in the future? A. He will be hairless because hair is no longer useful B. He will have smaller eyes and will wear better glasses C. His fingers will grow weaker because he won’t have to make use of them D. He will think and feel in a different way 72. It is implied that ___ A. human beings will become less attractive in the future B. less use of bodily organ may lead to its degeneration (退化) C. human beings hope for a change in the future life D. future life is always predictable D
While it's true that we all have the same amount of time in each day, there are ways we can better use the time we have to make it feel like we have more of it. on your side as a result. 1. Check email less Email is one of the greatest time sucks that we have coming at us every day of the week. Set some standards to live by with your email management and you'll find you'll have more hours to live with in the end. 2. Plan the night before Take some time the night before – or even at the end of your work day – to map out what you plan to do the next day. 3. _______________________ If you're an early riser, great. If you're a night owl(鹰), that's fine. Just don't try to change that unless you absolutely have to for reasons that can't be avoided. Go with the flow on this one – you'll be better off for it and so will your work. 4. Eat less and eat well – but eat more frequently Breakfast, lunch and dinner are key meals to have every day, and you need to eat breakfast well, but a bit less in lunch and dinner. And if it is not enough, try to eat a little bit frequently during the time. Of course, you need to eat well. 5. Stay hydrated Drink plenty of water. Keep a water bottle nearby and try to drink water that isn't ice cold – the body has an easier time dealing with it that way. Tea is also great if you need a break from the mundane(平常的 ), but remember to limit the caffeine intake – some teas contain much of it. These 5 tips may seem simple enough, but they are not so simple to maintain. But if you keep at it and keep your eyes on the prize – which is more time for you to do what you really want – then you'll find that sticking to them is time well spent. 73. The passage is most probably written for ____ A. students D. officers 74. Which one is the best subtitle for the No. 3 tip? A. Sleep earlier C. Don't make change 75. Which one is not true according to the writer? A. Don’t to try to check unnecessary emails time C. Drinking tea does good to you are good 76.

are 6 tips that you can use to get more time out of your day – and get more time
B. Be a night owl D. Don't fight your body clock B. Make plans ahead of D. Healthy eating habits
E If you compare a chimpanzee’s (大猩猩) bones with those of a modern human, one difference will immediately jump out at you. Chimp bones are densely(稠密的） packed with microscopic structures known as spongy( 海绵的 , 有弹性的 ) bone. Human bones aren’t. That relative lack of spongy bone makes our skeletons lighter and increases our risk of fractures(骨折) and osteoporosis（骨质疏松）. But weaker skeletons and more broken bones don’t seem like great evolutionary strategies. So why the change? Two papers published online today in the Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences propose an explanation. In the first, they compare
skeletons form modern chimpanzees, the early human ancestor Australopithecus
africanus, Neandertals, early Homo sapiens, and today’s modern humans. They found
that chimpanzees, Australopithecus, Neandertals, and even the early modern humans had much higher densities of spongy bone than today’s humans. That suggests that the driving force behind the change might be modern human’s sedentary lifestyle, free of the bone-strengthening exercise of chasing the prey(猎物)and spending hours in search of food. The second paper further supports that hypothesis( 假 说 ) by comparing the density of spongy bone in the hip joints of nonhuman primates（灵长 类动物）,ancient hunter-gatherers, and ancient farmers. The hunter-gatherers’ hip (臀部) joints were about as strong as those of the apes（猿人）, however, the ancient farmers’ hips showed a significant loss of spongy bone. The researchers conclude that a lack of necessary exercise, rather than any evolutionary pressure toward lighter skeletons, is the reason for modern human’s weak bones. So if you want a stronger skeleton, start exercising like a hunter-gatherer. 77. Which is not the feature of the chimpanzee’s bone compared with human beings? A. Spongy B. densely C. loose D. stronger 78. According to the passage what the meaning of the underlined word “sedentary” ? A. Often taking exercises moving C. bone-strengthening exercises A. 1-B; 2-C; 3-D 4-A C. 1-A; 2-D; 3-B; 4-C D. active B. 1-C; 2-D; 3-B; 4-A D. 1-A; 2-B; 3-D; 4-C 79.

Firstly, the color I want is golden but you sent the black one; secondly, the volume is so small that I can’t hear clearly; thirdly, there are some white dots on the screen, what’s more the color of the screen shows abnormal; what’s worse, it often starts and switches automatically.

And I will reserve the right to resort to legal claims. Sincerely yours
