1. Everyone likes things that are free，and businesses often give things for free to customers as a way of getting more people to pay attention to their products.
Ariely，a scientist from MIT，did an experiment on what people would do when __21__ things that were free.He __22__a group of students two kinds of chocolates: the good one for 15 cents each and the poor one for 1 cent each.The good chocolate was worth＄1.00，so 15 cents was very cheap，__23__the poor quality chocolate was worth 5 cents，so __24__ it for 1 cent wasn’t very cheap.
Most people chose the high quality chocolate for 15 cents. That’s not a__25__.But then Ariely lowered the__26__ of both pieces of chocolate by 1 cent.If people were__27__correctly，then they should __28__ choose the good quality chocolate.But that __29__ what happened.Most people chose the free chocolate.This doesn’t make sense in our__30__ way of understanding economic behavior(经济行为).
What is happening here? Ariely__31__ that people want to get a good bargain，but they also want to reduce risk(风险).That is，they want to __32__ the chance of making a__33__.If you pay 14 cents for a piece of chocolate，and then you don’t __34__ like it when you eat it,you have lost 14 cents.But when something is free and you don’t like it，you haven’t lost anything.People would__35__ not to take a risk over getting a better bargain.
Moods,say the experts,are feelings that are likely to become fixed,having effects on one’s outlook（way of looking at things ）for hours,days or even weeks.That’s great if your mood is a pleasant one,but a problem if you are sad,anxious,angry or simply lonely.
Perhaps the best way to deal with such moods is to talk them out;sometimes,though,there is no one to listen.Modern pharmacology（药物学）offers a lot tranquilizers（镇定剂）and anti-anxiety drugs.What many people don’t realize,however,is that scientists have discovered the effectiveness of several non-drug methods to make you free from an unwanted mood.These can be just as useful as drugs,and have the added benefit of being nonpoisonous.So next time you feel out of sorts,don’t head for the drug store—try the following method.
Of all the mood-changing self-help techniques,aerobic exercise seems to be the best cure for a bad mood.“If you could keep the exercise,you’d be in high spirits,”says Kathryn Lance,author of Running for Health and Beauty.
Researchers have explained biochemical and various other changes that make exercise compare favorably to drugs as mood-raiser.Physical work such as house-work,however,does little.The key is aerobic exercise-running,cycling,walking, swimming,or other repetitive and sustained activities that increase the heart rate and circulation（循环）,and improve the body’s use of oxygen.Do them for at least 20 minutes a time,three to five times a week.

“Are you crazy?”people around him shouted as Alex Bien，a 33-year-old immigrant(移民)，ran toward three cars in a chain accident along the highway in Miami，which were burning down.Alex didn’t think twice.
The article“Against the Flames” reported how he put out the fire on a car and pulled a couple out of another.But when he returned to his own car,steam was coming out from it.It was damaged beyond repair.
Back in his tiny flat,alone and with little money,Alex didn’t know what to do.He was already working，going to college and supporting his wife，Aline，and children back in Haiti.He worried about his wife’s health；doctors thought she had cancer(癌症).Every cent was important to him.And now this.
Within weeks of reading the article，readers sent hundreds of letters offering jobs，money and best wishes.One delivered a car—used，but in fine condition.Others helped Aline come to Miami，where a medical team found out it was not cancer.
Readers also wrote to U.S.government officials to support the immigration of Alex’s family to Miami.Consul General Roger Daley even invited Alex to discuss the matter.Aline，together with their children，joined Alex in Miami this past March.Alex says，“I would like to say a beautiful thanks to the readers.There are good people everywhere in this world.”
2-1.Why did people say that Alex was crazy?
A.He had an accident.
B.He made a fire on the highway.
C.He burned his car.
D.He ran toward the burning cars.
2-2.What do we know about Alex from the text?
A.He and his wife worked in the U.S.
B.He was a full-time student in Haiti.
C.He was an immigrant with little money.
D.He wrote the article “Against the Flames”.
2-3.What did Roger Daley invite Alex to discuss?
A.Alex’s new job as a news reporter.
B.The medical treatment of Alex’s wife.
C.Alex’s further studies at a U.S.university.
D.The immigration of Alex’s family to the U.S.
2-4.What made Alex say “There are good people everywhere in this world”?

Most musicians agree that the best violins(小提琴)were made in Cremona,Italy,about 200 years ago.They even sound better than violins made today.Violin makers and scientists try to make instruments(乐器)like the Italian violins，however,they are not the same.Why are these old Italian violins so special?No one really knows.But many people think they have an answer.
Some people think it is the age of the violins.But there is a problem here.Not all old violins sound wonderful.Only the old violins from Cremona are special.So age cannot be the answer.
Other people think the secret to those violins is the wood.It must be from certain kinds of trees.It must not be too young or too old.Perhaps the violin makers of Cremona knew something special about wood for violins.
But the kind of wood may not be so important.It may be more important to cut the wood in a special way.Wood for a violin must be cut into the right size and shape.The smallest difference will change the sound of the violin.Musicians sometimes think that this is the secret of the Italians.
Size and shape may not be the answer either.Scientists make new violins that are exactly the same size and shape.But the new ones still do not sound as good as the old ones.Some scientists think the secret may be the varnish(清漆).It makes the wood look shiny,but it also helps the sound of the instrument.Since no one knows what the Italian violin makers used in their varnish,no one can make the same varnish today.
There may never be other violins like the violins of Cremona.And there are not many of the old violins left.So these old violins from Cremona become more and more precious.
3-1.What would be the best title for the text?
A.The Secrets of Cremona Violins.

Many people thought babies were not able to learn things until they were five or six months old.But doctors now say babies begin learning on their first day of life.A baby will smile if his or her mother does something the baby likes.A baby learns to get the best care by smiling to please her mother or other care givers.This is when babies learn to connect and “talk” with other people.
Language skills are believed to develop best in the first three years when the place is rich with sounds and sights.Scientists say children should hear the speech and language of other people again and again.The first signs of communication(交际)happen during the first few days of life，when a baby learns that crying will bring food and attention.
Research shows that most children recognize the general sounds of their native language by six months of age.By that time，a baby usually begins to make sounds.By the end of their first year,most children are able to say a few simple words，although they may not understand the meaning of the words.By 18 months of age，most children can say between eight and ten words.By two years of age，most children are able to make simple sentences.By ages three，four and five，the number of words a child can understand quickly increases.It is at these ages that children begin to understand the rules of language.

1. 假如你是李华,你的美国朋友Peter来信说他将九月份到北京旅游三天,希望你帮他安排日程。请你写一封回信告诉他你将去机场接他,并会带他去游览。建议游览故宫(the Forbidden City)和颐和园(the Summer Palace)一天,长城一天,游览天安门广场和市中心购物一天。
I was so pleased to receive your letter and knew that you would pay a visit to Beijing in September.I would like to meet you at the airport on your arrival and show you around during your visiting.
Beijing is a wonderful city with a history of more than 2,000 years.There are a lot of places of interest for visitors.Seven days are not enough to tour in Beijing,I would say.As you have only three days in Beijing,I suggest that you visit the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace on the first day,climb the Great Wall on the second day and on the last day,go to Tiananmen Square and do some shopping in the downtown.
I’m looking forward to meeting you in Beijing.
