I live on the open grasslands of Africa with my family. Lions living in a group are called a pride. My father is strong and powerful. He and his cousin are the leaders of our pride. The other members are my mother, her sisters, and their children. The area where a pride lives is big! We roar (咆哮) to tell each other where we are and to warn strangers to stay away. Meet my new baby brother. His name is Leon. See the spots on his fur? We lions are born spotted or striped (有条纹的). As we grow older, the spots gradually disappear. Lionesses usually spend their entire lives with their birth pride, but Leon will leave when he is about three years old. He’ll run around with a male (雄性的) friend or
relative for a few years until they take over a pride of their own. But for now, we have lots of fun together. We often play and fight for hours, which can help us practice skills that we will need for hunting. We lions keep ourselves very clean. Just like a house cat, I clean my fur ( 毛) with my tongue. We clean for each other, too, to show we’re friends. Lions like to sleep for most of the day. We hunt in the cool evening. Female (雌性 的) lions hunt more often than male lions. We work together as a team. At the right moment, we attack and kill our prey. Then we share it. Male lions usually eat first. Females eat next. Baby lions are the last to eat. The smallest one gets the least food. Since we are full, it’s time to go to find a nice place for a sleep. Bye! 41. Lisa in this passage is the name of _____. A. a girl B. a male lion C. a female lion D. a pride 42. According to the passage, Leon _____. A. hunts more often than his sisters B. will have spots on his fur for the whole of his life C. will leave his birth pride when he is about three D. will take over his birth pride when his father dies 43.

Which of the following is NOT true? A. Lions sometimes clean their fur for each other. B. Lions also develop their skills of hunting by having fun. C. Lions in Africa usually hunt for food in the evening. D. Baby lions are often the first to get food in their group. B I work in a nursing home and my job is to take care of the elderly. This year, a very sweet old lady that I cared for, Alice, had gone through a difficult time. She got dementia and so she had been in the hospital twice. In November I was finally able to get her back to her “home”. Alice had thought her daughter was coming to visit her on Christmas day and that they were going to have the whole family together like the old days. When she finally realized that that happy moment was not going to happen, she was very sad. Knowing that her daughter was coming after Christmas was not enough to make her feel happy, I hated the idea of her being alone on the holiday! On Christmas Eve, I gave her a surprise by asking if she would like to go to a candlelight service at church that night. Instead of taking her to my church, I took her to her old neighborhood church
where all her friends were. We got there early and I got her a seat where her friends could see her as they came in. Then soon some of her friends came to the church and they rushed over to greet her and sit with her. The candlelight service was beautiful and Alice got a lot of love from her old and new friends there. The truth of the story is that I am the one who got the best gift: the smile on Alice’s face. 45. The underlined word “dementia” in Paragraph 2 probably is _____. A. an illness B. a letter C. a house D. a plan 46. Where did Alice spend her Christmas Eve according to the story? A. In her old house. B. In her old neighborhood church. C. In the nursing home. D. In the hospital. 47. What was the best gift that the author got on Christmas Eve? A. Alice’s happiness. B. Praise from Alice’s friends. C. Thanks from Alice’s daughter. D. The candlelight service. 48. What is the best title for this passage? A. A special candlelight Christmas Eve B. The dream of an old lonely lady C. A real present D. The true love C When traveling abroad, it is wise to carry your money in traveler's checks because checks are protected against loss or theft. If your checks are lost or stolen, the issuing authority will refund(赔偿) your money. Not only are they safe, they are also convenient. They are available in different currencies(货币) and they can be cashed at most banks throughout the world. Most shops, hotels and restaurants also accept them. Traveler's checks are very easy to use. When you collect them, you sign each check once. The cashier enters the amount in your passport. When you cash, you sign each check again. The cashier will usually ask to see your passport again too.

For the safety and convenience of traveler's checks, you are charged two commissions( 佣金，酬劳 ): an insurance commission when you buy them and an encashment commission when you cash them. It is suitable to make a note of the serial numbers of your checks. Keep this separate from your traveler's checks.

Dear Mr. Li, I’m glad to tell your that I have made great progress in my English study since I became a senior high school student. When I started senior English in the beginning, I found it much more difficult than what we learned in junior school and I almost lose heart. Later, I realized the importance of English, so I got up early every morning, recited English words, listened to English tapes and did a lot of exercises. I also asked my teachers and classmates for better ways of learning English. Now, I’m improving my English greatly. And I’m getting more and more interested in learning it. Thank you so much for your great help in your class. Wish you all the best
