The trouble started at 9:30 p.m. last New Year’s Eve, in Newmark. When the fire engines (消防车) arrived at the fire, a very old woman was sitting in a third floor window. The firefighters placed a ladder (梯子) against the wooden house, and 26-year-old Marcus Reddick climbed 35 feet to the third floor.
The woman, 60 years old and very fat, was sitting with both feet out of the window. When Marcus reached the top of the ladder, the woman, afraid and nervous, put her two legs around him. Suddenly Marcus fell backwards off the ladder, with the large woman sitting on him. Marcus landed first — hitting a wall beside the front stairs — and broke the woman’s fall. She fell no more, but he fell another ten feet down the stairs. When the fire officer reached him, Marcus was unconscious.
Within an hour, a doctor told the men that Marcus was nearly brain dead, and would only get worse. Doctors talked of turning off the life-saving machine and asked if the family would like to give away his heart. The answer was “yes”.
On January 6, firefighters lifted Marcus’ coffin (棺材) — covered with an American flag — onto a yellow fire engine. Hundreds of firefighters from all over the state joined the procession (行列) through Newmark streets. Children watched silently from school windows. The day Marcus died, his heart was given away to a young girl. His family said that it was the second life Marcus had saved.
21. After reaching the top of the ladder, Marcus _____.
A. was very afraid and nervous B. couldn’t see anything clearly
C. found it difficult to get down D. was knocked off and got hurt
22. The underlined word “unconscious” in Paragraph 2 means “_____”.
A. homeless B. senseless C. breathless D. helpless
23. We can infer from the end of the text that Marcus’ family might feel _____.
A. sad but proud B. shy but excited
C. angry and doubtful D. worried and surprised
The British are known for their sense of humor. However, it is often difficult for foreigners to understand their jokes. The main point to remember is that the British often use understatement.
Understatement means saying less than you think or feel. For example, if someone gets very wet in a shower of rain, he might say, “Its a little damp (潮湿的) outside.” Or, if someone is very impolite and shouts at another person, someone else might say, “She isn’t exactly friendly.” Understatement is often used in unpleasant situation or to make another person look silly. Understatement plays an important part in British humor.
Another key to understanding British humor is that the British like to make fun of themselves as well as others. They often laugh about the silly and unpleasant things that happen to our everyday life when someone accidentally falls over in the street. They also like to make jokes about people from different classes of society. They like to make jokes about their accents, the way they dress and the way they behave. What’s more, the British love to watch comedies (喜剧) about people who do not know how to behave in society. The comedies series Mr. Bean is a good example of this kind of humor.
Mr. Bean is the character created by British actor Rowan Atkinson in 1990. Mr. Bean doesn’t talk often, and instead he uses his body movement and facial expressions to make people laugh. Perhaps what makes Mr. Bean so funny is that he does things that adults in the real world cannot do. Mr. Bean is popular in many countries around the world because you do not have to speak English to understand the humor. Because of this, many people have become familiar with the British sense of humor.
24. Why is it difficult for foreigners to understand British jokes?
A． The British often enlarge the fact.
B． British jokes are connected with many different cultures.
C． British jokes are not as funny as jokes in other countries.
D． The British try to make out that something is less important than it is.
25. Mr. Bean makes laugh by ______.
A． using his body movement and facial expressions
B． making jokes about others’ accent
C． copying how others behave
D． telling funny stories
26. What can be the best title for the text?
A． British Humor in Comedy
B． Humor in Different Cultures
C． Understanding British Humor
D． Developing Your Sense of Humor
Almost all of us have thought about, or been asked to think about, our future careers. Our answers may differ greatly. Even now your selections may have changed from when you were in primary school.
However, it seems that career options are not only based on personal taste. In a survey carried out by Teens, doctors, lawyers and bankers were some of the most popular careers that people said they hoped to follow and medicine was the top choice among UK teenagers aged between 13 and 17.
Medicine and law are two of the oldest and best known professions. Their fame may come from the fact that doctors and lawyers are some of the most admired members of society, and they make good money. Joining these highly attractive professions is often seen as a sign of upward social mobility (社会流动性).
It is equally unsurprising that banking is now one of the most common career choices. Youngsters worldwide think of banking and see the money rolling in. It is increasingly becoming one of the most important factors of a successful career. British young men list the UK business tycoon Alan Sugar, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg as their top role models “for their money”, just as Chinese teenagers see being a banker as a good and fun pathway to “fortune”.
However, not every child has the makings of a doctor, lawyer or banker. There are those who see fulfillment (满足感)and happiness in other areas, and many teenagers dare to ink more individuality (个性)into their career options. A variety of unconventional (非传统的) jobs--- coffee shop owner, gourmet(美食家), waiter at a fast food restaurant--- are among teenagers’ career choices. They can be equally interesting and rewarding jobs.
With every choice comes responsibility and challenge, and all career paths require specific education and training. You have to learn to balance optimism and confidence with being realistic about your particular talents and skills.
27. According to the text, all of the followings are the benefits of being a doctor except _______.
A. high pay B. upward social mobility
C. the oldest profession D. respect from others
28. What is greatly considered in teenagers’ career choices?
A. Relationship. B. Fame.
C. Finance. D. Communication.
29. What can we learn from the last paragraph?
A. Responsibility is the most important thing when you choose a good job.
B. You should be realistic according to your particular talents and skills.
C. With specific education and training, you can get a job easily.
D. You must choose your favorite career according to your particular talents and skills.
30. Which of the following may serve as the best title of the passage?
A. A career in teenagers’ mind.
B. Teenagers dream of being doctors.
C. The choice of career needs challenge.
D. Choosing a good job is very important.

I am a hardworking girl and want to be the number one in my class. But in the exams, I always make mistakes that I should have avoided. I really worry about it. What can I do to improve my performance in exams?
Dear Wang Li,
It’s good that you know what prevents you achieving satisfying scores in exams.
Many years ago, when I was fresh out of school and working in Denver, I was driving to my parents’ home in Missouri for Christmas. I stopped at a gas station(加油站) about 50 miles from Oklahoma City, where I was planning to stop and visit a friend. While I was standing in line at the cash register (收款台)，I said hello to an older couple who were also paying for gas.
I took off, but had gone only a few miles when black smoke poured from the back of my car. I stopped and wondered what I should do. A car pulled up behind me. It was the couple I had spoken to at the gas station. They said they would take me to my friend’s. We chatted on the way to the city, and when I got out of the car, the husband gave me his business card.
I wrote him and his wife a thank-you note for helping me. Soon afterward, I received a Christmas present from them. Their note that came with it said that helping me had made their holidays meaningful.
Years later, I drove to a meeting in a nearby town in the morning. In late afternoon, I returned to my car and found that I’d left the lights on all day, and the battery（电池）was dead. Then I noticed that the Friendly Ford dealership—a shop selling cars—was right next door. I walked over and found two salesmen in the showroom.
I entered the shop, and one of the salesmen came to me. ____________________________________
After a while, they quickly drove a pickup truck to my car and started it. _______________________

Dear Wang Li,
It’s good that you know what prevents you achieving satisfying scores in exams. However, don’t put too much pressure on yourself.
Learning from the errors you’ve made is an effective way to avoid making the same mistakes next time. If you have problems you cannot solve, turn to your teacher or classmates for advice.
When you attend the exam, plan how to distribute your time according to the number of questions. Spare a few minutes to review your work in order that you can spot the silly mistakes.
I believe a good learning habit can eventually help you gain success.
W: Did you see that, Jimmy? A red airplane just flew right over our house!
M: Oh, no! I missed it! I was looking at our neighbor’s big black dog outside the window.
W: David, could you tell me something about your trip to Europe.
M: Sure. We spent four days in Scotland, five days in Sweden, and finally one week in Spain.
W: That’s really wonderful.
M: How do you like your new house?
W: It’s comfortable inside and it is far from the city center. But the sound of the bar next to my house is really annoying.
M: I can’t decide whether to buy a new car or try to find a second-hand one.
W: If you buy a new one, you’ll probably save money in the long run.
M: Thank you so much for the hot coffee. Would you give me a blanket?
W: OK, here you are. I hope you can enjoy the rest of the flight, sir.
M: Disneyland, Disneyland… I can’t remember ever being so excited about anything.
W: Honestly, every time we’re in a car going somewhere, you say that you can’t remember ever being so excited about going there.
M: But this time I really mean it. The games, the food, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck! I’m going to see Donald Duck! How exciting!
W: Is that what you’re looking forward to the most?
M: Totally! You’re going to have to take my photo with him, OK?
W: But it’s just a guy in a suit…
W: Let’s work out the schedule for your stay here, Mr. Smith.
M: All right. I will stay here for three days, and will fly back to New York the day after tomorrow.
W: So we’ll get down to business today. We are going to visit the factory this morning, and you could have a look at our product. We’ll discuss our agreement tomorrow.
M: Yes, certainly. Hopefully we’ll come to a deal.
W: That’ll be great. The day after tomorrow I’ll take you on a tour of the city in the morning so you could do some shopping.
M: That’s fine. And I’ll leave in the afternoon.
M: I’d like a large cup of coffee and an egg-and-cheese sandwich, please.
W: Sure. Would you like us to toast your sandwich, or is it fine the way it is?
M: Toasted, please. And could you tell me what your Wi-Fi password is?
W: It’s CoffeeBeans123, but we have been having trouble with our Internet, so that might not work.
M: Oh, OK… Wait a minute… This coffee is cold. And my sandwich isn’t toasted.
W: I’m sorry, sir. This is my first day on the job. I don’t know how to work the oven.
M: Well, why don’t you just put it in the microwave, then? And could you tell me where the sugar and milk is?
W: I’m sorry, sir. The sugar is in the corner, but we ran out of milk earlier this morning.
M: You know what? Never mind. I’ll just go to Starbucks.
M: Hi. Do come in. There are two apartments. The one for rent is upstairs.
W: Thank you. I like the carpet.
M: The colors are nice, aren’t they? This apartment is kept clean and tidy. Here is your living room. You can see there are some lovely pictures on the wall.
W: Good. Where would we eat?
M: You can use your kitchen. Come and see.
W: The kitchen is quite bright but it’s very small.
M: Yes, but it’s easy to clean and it has almost everything except for a dishwasher. Let me show you the two bedrooms. This is the smaller one.
W: It’s a good size, though. Is all the furniture included?
M: Only what is fixed. You will have to provide tables, chairs, and beds.
W: That’s a lot.
M: Come into the other room. You can see the bathroom, too.
W: Yes, it’s very nice, but I will have to ask my friend first and we will come together.
