         In different countries around the world, most children must start schooling at early ages.

     And they become "adults" at different ages. Being an adult means having the right to do certain

     things, such as getting a part-time job, voting(投票), getting married, or getting a driving license

     It also means accepting the responsibilities that go along with these rights.

         In many countries, sixteen or eighteen is the age when a person becomes an adult. Young

     men and women at this age can get a part-time job, and begin to receive an income of their own.

     They no longer have to depend on their parents for money all the time. In Canada and America,

     sixteen is the age when one can get a driving license; in England, it is seventeen.

         There are responsibilities that go along with both of these rights. Getting a part-time job

     means that you have to pay income tax. Driving a car demands that you follow certain rules like

     buying car insurance.

        Voting is another right that young people enjoy when they become adults. In the United

    States, Canada and Britain, young people have the right to vote at the age of eighteen. With this

    right also comes responsibility. For young people to use their right to vote wisely, they must

    have an understanding of the needs of society, and they must also learn how politics work.

    1. The underlined word "right" in Paragraph One means              in Chinese.

          A.正确            B.右边               C.权利

    2. In America and Canada, young people who are          can get their driving licenses.

          A. at the age of 16   B. at the age of 15    C. at the age of 14

    阅读理解,根据短文内容,从短文后各题所给的ABCD四个选项中,

    选择最佳选项。

    For some people, the sight of a mouse can be the reason to scream. For other mice, the same sight can be the reason to sing.

    Mice will possibly never sing their way to Broadway (百老汇), but researchers from Washington University in the United States have found evidence that mice do, in fact, sing. Until now, singing mice have become stars in cartoons, but they have never been heard singing out in real life before.

    Scientists already knew that mice make ultrasonic (超声波) sounds—noises that are too high for people to hear without special equipment(仪器). Mouse babies cry out when they lose their mothers. Male mice make noise when they smell females.

    To find out whether mice put such sounds together in song-like pattern(模式), the researchers recorded the sounds of 45 male mice. They put each mouse in its own room and cause them to make noise. Microphones recorded the sounds.

    Using computer software, the researchers found the mice produced about 10 syllables(音节) every second.

    The results showed that nearly all of the mice repeated sequences (顺序)of syllables in different ways. Scientists call that a song. Birds, whales, and people do the same thing.

    Not all scientists are sure that what the mice are doing is actually singing. To prove it, the researchers must show that mice are able to learn to sing. And, they need to figure out why the mice sing. One guess, the researchers say, is that male mice use songs to attract females that they like.

    However, the discovery that mice produce such complicated sounds could be useful for the study of communication in animals, including people.

    1. We hear mice singing only when we      .

    A. pay special attention to them                           B. go to Broadway

    C. have learned a lot about them                            D. watch a cartoon movie

    2. From the third paragraph, we know        .

    A. mice often sing their songs to warn other mice

    B. mice are more clever than human beings

    C. mice only use ultrasonic sounds to communicate

    D. mice’s ultrasonic sounds are too high for people to hear without special equipment

    3. What does the passage mainly tell us?

    A. Mice sing in real life.                              B. Mouse babies cry in real life.    

    C. Mice sing for no reasons.                      D. Computers are used to study mouse songs.

    China is a country with many colorful days and festivals. The Dragon Head Raising Day (Longtaitou) is one of them.

    This special day is on the second day of the second month in the Chinese lunar calendar (阴历). It stands for the start of spring and farming. This year, the day fell on March 10.

    The dragon is important in Chinese culture. We Chinese people call ourselves the “descendants (传人) of the dragon”. Therefore, people celebrate the Dragon Head Raising Day with many customs(传统) about dragons.

    On the day in ancient times(古代), people put ashes () in the kitchen. This was to “lead the dragon into the house”. People believed that with the help of the dragon, they could have a good harvest (收成) in autumn.

    Also, people eat special foods on that day. The foods are usually named after dragons. For example, people eat “dragon whisker (细须)” noodles and dumplings called “dragon teeth”.

    Today, many customs have faded away (消退). But one that has remained is the cutting of hair. It was said that a haircut during the first lunar month may bring bad luck to the mother’s brothers. So many people have their hair cut on the Dragon Head Raising Day.

    In the eyes of many foreigners, Chinese are the best hosts and the worst guests in the world. They’re not really bad guests, but because the guest-host relationship(关系) in China is much different than in some western countries. It seems that they are not nice guests. And western guests sometimes look rude in the eyes of Chinese guests.

       In China, guests are almost like gods(上帝). Whenever I enter a Chinese person’s home, there is always fruit on the table for me, and someone is quick to bring me a cup of tea or water. In the west, generally the guest is not a god. Acting according to(根据) the host’s way of doing things is usual behavior for a guest.

       My wife’s mother, a very kind elderly Chinese lady, doesn’t smoke. When I see some of her guests smoking in her house, as a non-smoker, I feel unhappy. Usually I want to stop them directly(直接地), but I must realize that in China, to be a good host, she must not do that. In most North America homes, if you are a guest, and the hosts are not smokers, you should not smoke in their house. At the very least, you could ask, “Is it OK if I smoke?” But don’t besurprised if the hosts say, “No, you can’t smoke.” In our culture, if you smoke in their home, you are a bad guest, but if they don’t allow you to smoke in their house, they are not a rude host.

       Guests in China also have special habits. Some western people may not adapt to these habits very soon. Thankfully my wife is Chinese, so whenever we visit a Chinese family she tells me to buy them a gift. However, giving a gift to a host is not always necessary in my country. So, if you invite international guests to your home, don’t be too surprised if they don’t bring you a gift.

    In China, you probably won't need to change the guest-host relationship very much because you will probably only be the host, and Chinese are naturally very good hosts. If western hosts invite you to their house, try not to be too surprised if their style of treating you is not what you have expected.

    (    ) 1. Many foreigners think that Chinese hosts are the _________in the world.

                  A. best           B. worst     C. most natural      D. most difficult

    (    ) 2. When a western guest visits a Chinese family, he often _________.

    A. buys some fruit       B. feels like a god   

    C. wants some gifts    D. takes a cup of tea

    (    ) 3. If the writer’s guests want to smoke in his house, what will he probably say?

    A. It’s OK if you smoke here.     B. Let’s smoke together.

    C. Sorry, you can’t smoke here.    D. Smoking is a bad habit.

    (    ) 4. What is the meaning of the underlined phrase “adapt to” in the passage?

    A. think back to    B. get used to    C. look forward to   D. keep close to

    (    ) 5. What is the main idea of this passage?

    A. Foreigners should learn from Chinese.

    B. Hosts must do things in the guest’s way.

    C. Western hosts are always nice to guests.

    D. People should understand cultural differences.

    We usually see ancient plants or insects in amber(琥珀). But recently, a group of researchers found something unusual in amber — a feathered tail!

    The tail includes bones, soft tissue and even feathers. It is 37 mm long, which is about the length of a matchstick. It looks like a plant at first sight. But researchers later identified(确定) it as part of the tail of a dinosaur that couldn’t fly almost 100 million years ago.

    Xing Lida of Beijing’s China University of Geosciences discovered the amber in a market in Myanmar in 2015. “It is an amazing fossil(化石) and the finest details of feathers can be seen in 3-D.” he said.

    The researchers note in their paper that this finding is particularly special because, although dinosaur feathers have been found in amber before, we don’t know which dinosaurs they came from. But this time researchers know more.

    The tail is likely to belong to a tiny dinosaur called coelurosaur. Famous coelurosaurs include the T-rex(霸王龙) and Velociraptor(迅猛龙) — the latter of which would finally evolve into birds.

    So with the “once in a lifetime” finding, can we hope for the possibility of a real Jurassic Park (侏罗纪公园)? In the movie series, scientists bring dinosaurs back to life by getting their DNA from blood found in amber.

    But Canadian scientist Ryan Mckellar said that although soft tissue and blood of the tail were found in the amber, no genetic material was kept. “The Jurassic Park answer is still a ‘no’ — this is in the science fiction.” he said.

    1. What did a group of researchers find in amber recently?

    A. Ancient plants.                                B. A tail of some ancient birds that couldn’t fly.

    C. Ancient insects.                               D. A tail with feathers that belongs to a dinosaur.

    2. What do you know about the amber?

    a. It is about 100 million years old.         b. It was discovered in Myanmar.

    c. It was discovered this year.                     d. It is a valuable fossil.

    A. ab                     B. bc                      C. ac                      D. bd

    3. What does the underlined phrase “evolve into” in Paragraph 5 mean?

    A. come into          B. break into        C. grow into        D. get into

    4. Why is the finding particularly special?

    A. Because it is the first time that dinosaur feathers have been found in amber.

    B. Because researchers know which dinosaur the tail might belong to.

    C. Because researchers learned that Velociraotpors evolved into birds.

    D. Because researchers learned that there were two types of coelurosaurs.

    5. The movie Jurassic Park is mentioned to        .

    A. talk about the use of DNA in this area   B. call on people to watch it

    C. compare different dinosaurs           D. talk about science fiction

        Clothing is a language. It tells us about individual people: their personality, their aye, their place in society and so on. If we want to know more about societywe can look at traditional clothing.

    The continent of Africa has a long history and a rich cultureand this is shown in traditional dress . You often find three coloursredgold and green in the clothing. The first colour stands for the blood of millions of people who suffered as slaves(奴隶); the second is for the rich resources of the African earth; and the third represents the grasslands of home.
        The patterns(
    图案) on the clothing also have a meaning. A common pattern is in the form of a cross ×, which stands for unity. Another pattern is a rectangular box, which represents strength.
        Because clothing has a strong social meaning, people are very careful in choosing what to wear. It would
    n't be good to wear the wrong clothing, or to wear clothes in the wrong way. For instance, in Ghana, a woman should wear her waistband differently according to the importance of the social event.
        Traditional dress also tells us about everyday life. African designs are famous for loose(
    宽松的) clothing. The climate, with the hot sun and wide temperature changes, requires that the clothes are comfortable for daily life.
        Although many people wear western clothes, particularly in the big cities in Africa, traditional dress is very highly valued. This is because it has deep cultural meanings.

    1. According to the passagered       .

    A . represents the setting sun

    The Silk Road is the name of different roads that long ago connected Europe, Africa and Asia. People reached these different places along these roads. Scientists believe people began to travel

    the Silk Road about 3000 years ago. By the time the Chinese silk trade became important in the

    world. The Silk Road covered almost 6500 kilometers. It went from Rome to China, which is from

    the West to the Far East.

    Merchants travelled along the Silk Road to carry silk, of course. They also carried and traded

    other things like spices (香料), cloth, jewels and gold.

    countries to meet each other and mix. The Silk Road allowed the sharing of valuable things and

    new ideas. It included people and trading goods from different areas. All these peoples travelled

    the Silk Road. And they shared goods, stories, languages, and cultures.

    In modern times, the old Silk Road routes (路线) are still used, but now they are crossed by

    trains instead of camels and horses. There is even silk route museum in Jiuquan in China. It

    has over 35, 000 objects from all along the Silk Road. In this way, China protects the history of

    Copenhagen, one of the world's most bicycle-friendly cities, has begun to turn its network of usual highways (公路) into bike highways in order to push more commuters (每日往返上班着) to leave their cars at home.

    Copenhagen and Amsterdam are called Europe's two "bicycle capitals", Copenhagen counts more bicycles than people and cycling is so popular that its numerous bike paths () can become very crowded.

    Traffic jams caused by bikes are usually common on the main Noerrebrogade (诺勒布洛加德街) street used by around 36,000 cyclists a day. "Copenhagen's roads are packed with people who want to ride their bicycles in all kinds of weather. You have to be careful cycling your way forward and some cyclists aren't always thoughtful," complains 22-year-old university student Lea Bresell.    "The creation of bike highways comes right on time," he adds.

    If in the 1960s Danes (丹麦人) thought of the car as a sign of freedom, today the bicycle has taken its place. Bicycle has become an important part of people's life, even politicians ride bikes to work.

    It is on crowded Noerrebrogade - the busiest bicycle street in Europe, the city planners have                                             

    decided to build the first Copenhagen's environmentally friendly street. The jammed bike paths will be widened to four meters on either side of the road.

    "The idea is to make Noerrebrogade Europe's great cycling street". says Andreas Rochl the Copenhagen bicycle program manager who is also known as "Mr. Bike". But Rochl is not satisfied with making life easier for cyclists in the city. He wants to get people living in the countryside out of their cars and onto bikes too.

    His goal is to push the percentage of countryside commuters cycling to and from the city from today's 37 percent to more than 50 percent by 2015- Within the city, 55 percent of commuters already travel by bike.

    Already Copenhagen's cycling environment is better than other European capitals with its bike paths of more than 390 kilometers.

    A)A university student.                     B) A city planner.

           Every year, in late March or early April, a boat race takes place on the Thames River, England. This boat race is an event between the two most famous and also the oldest universities in Britain – the Oxford(牛津大学)and the Cambridge(剑桥大学).

           The idea for the boat race between the universities came from two friends – Charles Merivale, a student at Cambridge, and his friend Charles Wordsworth who was at Oxford. They decided to set up a boat race between the two universities. On March 12, 1829, Cambridge sent a challenge to Oxford first.

           When the first boat race took place in a small town by Thames, eight students from each university became the competitors. Crowds of twenty thousand traveled to watch. It was so exciting. And the Oxford was clear winners. Later on, not only did the students from the two universities take part, but also some social groups attended the event. By 1845, with the small town becoming too crowded, the boat race had moved six miles up to the village – Putney. From 1856 on, the race has been held every year except war years. This boat race is considered to be “the world’s oldest sporting challenge”.

           The race is four and a quarter miles in just 20 minutes and the competitors often face difficulties. It usually takes six months for the two teams to prepare for the big days. In the past, the Oxford was mostly the winners. But things have changed from 1993 on. The Cambridge has won more.

    根据短文内容,判断正(T)误(F)。
