As a bus driver, Mike would be interested in __________. A. A and B. A. an advertisement C. a newspaper report B After numerous warnings over the years, you thought coffee probably had a negative effect on your health? Perhaps the drink is not so bad after all. The new study, conducted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), has been published and suggests that coffee does not have a harmful effect on your health. Researchers suggest, based on data examined, older adults who drink a lot of coffee, have a lower risk of death when compared to their non-drinking coffee peers. The team of researchers conducting the study analyzed data on 400,000 U. S. men and women, aged 50 to 71 years; the individuals had participated in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study. This study started in 1995-1996 and was tracked until the day a participant passed away, or Dec. 31, 2008. According to a press release on the report, researchers shared that coffee drinkers are “less likely to die from heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes, and infections, although the association was not seen for cancer.” Results indicated participants that drank three or more cups of java a day reduced their risk of death by 10 percent. Based on the findings that both caffeinated and non-caffeinated coffee found similar results, researchers are thinking caffeine is not the protective ingredient(原料), although which ingredient in coffee might be, they are not sure. Researchers indicate that despite these observational findings, they caution it is not clear B. C and D. C. A and C. B. a science fiction D. a research paper D. B and D. 41. This passage is most probably taken from __________. B. ResQMe. D. Swiss Tech UKCSB-1.
whether or not drinking coffee actually extends life expectancy. “Coffee is one of the most widely consumed drinks in America, but the association between coffee consumption and risk of death has been unclear. We found coffee consumption to be associated with lower risk of death overall, and of death from a number of different causes,” said Neal Freedman, Ph. D., Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, NCI. “Although we cannot infer a relationship between coffee drinking and lower risk of death, we believe these results do provide some comfort that coffee drinking does not adversely affect health,” Freedman said. Dr. Cheryl Williams, a registered dietician, told ABC News, “Overall, more research needs to be done to truly understand the compounds in coffee and their biological activity and effect on health,” said Williams. 42. The passage is mainly about __________. A. medical benefits of coffee C. coffee’s negative effects on health B. benefits of planting coffee D. new study results on coffee
43. We can learn from the passage that __________. A. drinking coffee can help reduce the risk of death from some diseases B. people rely heavily on coffee drinking and that proves to be a problem C. people who often drink coffee are more likely to suffer different diseases D. caffeine is the very ingredient which protects people from developing diseases 44. The underlined word “java” in Paragraph 5 refers to __________. A. caffeine B. ingredient C. coffee D. drink 45. What can we infer from William’s words? A. People should drink more caffeinated coffee. B. People should analyze the cause of human death. C. People should take advantages of drinking coffee. D. People should carry out more related and effective studies. C When my friend put out the idea of homeschooling to her parents, the first reaction they gave was, “you are cutting the child off the world”. Did the child really get cut off or did the child socialize better? The moment we hear of homeschooling, we think the child will have no opportunities to interact with peers. However, my friend said we forget that when attending a regular school, the child is not into socializing all the while. The child is restricted to so many other activities. Studies take a major role in a child’s life. The child hardly has the time to interact at school as well after getting back home. The child might be meeting and studying along with many of its peers; however, how many kids interact with all the kids in a class? However, in homeschooling system, as my friend mentioned,
the kid has all the time and can plan its day accordingly. During the day the child studies like other schoolgoing kids but with no burden of homework and project work, the child has so much free time in the evening as to effectively interact and play with peers. The quality time the child spends in education is really impressive. Homeschooling kids have the opportunity to socialize more often as they have a lot of time in their hands. They can also make socializing a regular habit. Just as my friend said, her child goes to a neighboring park almost every day and has a set of friends who come there daily. Other children get back home to finish off homework and project work while her child who is already through with studies gets the opportunity to spend time with family members. When I heard this, I really felt how lucky the child was. Definitely the child had a better opportunity to socialize when compared with my kids. However, I might not consider the homeschooling for my kid, as I am so used to the conventional(传统的) schooling system and feel regular schooling the safest bet. 46. Which of the following is true according to the author’s friends? A. Homeschooling can give children more chances to join in activities. B. Homeschooling can give children more time to stay with people. C. Homeschooling can help children know how to arrange time. D. Homeschooling can help children study more effectively. 47. The author’s purpose in writing the passage is to __________. A. introduce her friend’s teaching plan B. explain what homeschooling is C. share her view on education D. advertise homeschooling 48. How does the passage mainly develop? A. By presenting facts. B. By giving examples. C. By making comparison. D. By analyzing cause and effect. 49. What is the author’s attitude towards homeschooling? A. Supportive. B. Negative. C. Objective. D. Uncertain.

It was sunny that day. In the morning, we got to the farm on our school bus. We queued up at the gate and went in one by one. Shortly afterwards, we were divided into several groups to prepare lunch. Most of us had never cooked before, so we were really excited to get the chance to have a try. We collected wood, made fire and cooked. Soon, our lunch was ready. Eating the dishes cooked by ourselves, we all agreed that they were the tastiest food we had ever had. After lunch, we got involved in planting trees. Some dug holes. Some carried and planted young trees. Others watered them. Seeing the lines of trees, we felt we had done something meaningful for the environment. Before leaving the farm, we had a photo taken to record the unforgettable experience, which gave us a good chance to be independent and aroused our awareness of environment protection. 附：听力录音材料 Text 1 W: I wonder if you have some change. I want to make a call. M: Sorry. I have only three coins, and I need them for my bus fare. Text 2 M: Sam had a car accident when he did sightseeing in a port city and had his leg broken. W: I bet that he realizes how important driving safely is. Text 3 M: We’ve been waiting for a table for half an hour. W: Yeah. It’s almost eight-thirty. We’ll be late for the movie. M: Let’s just get some fast food. W: Good idea. Text 4 M: Excuse me. I’m trying to do some work. I’m afraid your children are making a lot of noise. Don’t they ever go to sleep? W: I’m sorry. They are noisy. But you know it’s difficult to keep boys quiet. M: I couldn’t work and I couldn’t sleep last night, and I was woken by the noise they made early this morning. W: I’m terribly sorry. You know they never listen to me. They’re only afraid of their father. He is away on business, but he’ll be back tomorrow. M: I hope he can do something about it. Text 5 W: Good afternoon. I’d like some information about the trains, please. M: Yes, madam. Which train? Where are you going to? W: To London. You see, I have a sister and... When is the next train to London, please? M: At half past four. That’s about a minute. W: Thank you very much. Oh! Can I get something to eat on the train? I always have something to eat when I travel. I find that a cup of tea and a cake always calm me down.
M: Yes, madam. You can get what you want on the train. W: Oh, good! Err, how much does a cup of tea cost? M: I’m not sure, madam. Fifty pence, I think. W: Fifty pence! Oh, dear! Things are getting so expensive! M: Yes, madam. Your train’s going to leave in half a minute now. W: Thank you. Oh! Which platform does the train leave from? M: Platform 13. W: Platform 13! Oh, dear! I never travel on trains that leave from platform 13! It’s obvious that 13 is an unlucky number. When is the next train after the 4: 30? Text 6 You might notice something new in the next few years as you watch Disney programs. Starting in 2015, there won’t be any candy, sugary cereal or fast food advertisements aimed at kids. The Walt Disney Company became the first major media company to remove ads for junk food from its TV channels, radio stations and websites. It hopes this will stop kids from making poor food choices. In addition, Disney plans to make changes to its kids’ menus at theme parks. Fast-food choices will be replaced with healthier choices, such as apples, vegetables and yogurt. Disney isn’t the only one getting rid of unhealthy foods. Last week, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that the sale of drinks over 16 ounces would be forbidden in movie theaters, restaurants and convenience stores in the Big Apple. He says large, sugary drinks are partly to blame for obesity. “Getting rid of junk-food ads could make it easier to keep a family on a healthy diet”, says Nadine Haskell, a mother of two sons, 8 and 11, from Columbus, Ohio. “If they see an advertisement on TV, then the next time we go to the grocery store they’ll say they want to try it.” says Haskell. Text 7 M: Hello. Chaoyang North Road Police Station. Can I help you? W: Yes. I’m calling to report a missing credit card. M: What’s your name and phone number? W: My name is Joan Katherine. K-A-T-H-E-R-I-N-E. My phone number is 89017258. M: OK. Joan Katherine, 59 Fragrant Grass Road. You are not a Chinese citizen, are you? W: No, I’m an Italian. M: Did you say your card was lost or stolen? W: Lost. I went to the fitting room to try the dress on in the shopping mall. When I came out of the fitting room, I forgot to take it with me. M: Did you go back to have a look? W: Yes. But it was gone. I asked the counter whether someone found my purse, they said no. M: No need to worry. Once we get your card number, your card won’t work within 30 seconds simply by informing the terminal. W: Thank you very much.
M: That’s all right.
