It was a strange place. Martin and Tom wished that they had not accepted Jack?s dare. They liked camping, but not near this swamp. “So,” Martin asked as they sat watching the hot coals. “How did this place get its name ? ” “Are you sure you want to hear it ? It?s a scary story,” warned Jack. “Of course!” cried out Tom. “If there were anything to be scared of, you wouldn?t have chosen this place!” “Ok, but don?t say I didn?t warn you,” said Jack, and he began this tale. “Way back in time, a man called Dennis tried to start a farm here. He built that cottage over
there to live in . In those days, the area looked quite different ---- it was covered with tall trees and the swamp was a crystal-clear river. After three hard years, Dennis had cleared several fields and planted crops. He was so proud of his success that he refused to listen to advice. “ ?You are clearing too much land, ? warned one old man. ? The land is a living thing. It will hit back at you if you abuse it. ? “ ? Silly fool,? said Dennis to himself. ?If I clear more land, I can grow more crops. I?ll become wealthier. He?s just jealous!?” “Dennis continued to chop down trees. Small animals that relied on them for food and shelter were destroyed. He was so eager to expand his farm that he did not notice the river flowing slowly towards his door. He did not notice salt seeping to the surface of the land. He did not notice swamp plants choking all the native plants.” “What happened ? ” Martin asked. It was growing colder. He trembled, twisting his body closer to the fire. “The land hit back ---- just as the old man warned, ” Jack shrugged. “Dennis disappeared. Old folks around here believe that swamp plants moved up from the river and dragged him underwater. His body was never found.” “What a stupid story, ” laughed Tom. “Plants can?t …” Before he had finished speaking, he screamed and fainted(晕倒). The other two boys jumped up with fright, staring at Tom. Suddenly, they burst out laughing. Some green swamp ivy (常春藤) had covered Tom?s face. It was a while before Tom could appreciate the joke. 21. The underlined word “dare” in Paragraph 1 is closed in meaning to ________. A. courage B. assistance C. instruction D. challenge 22. Why did Dennis ignore the warning of the old man ? A. The old man envied him. B. The old man was foolish C. He was too busy to listen to others. D. He was greedy for more crops. 23. Why did Tom scream and faint ? A. He saw Dennis?s shadow B. He was scared by a plant C. His friends played a joke on him. D. The weather became extremely cold. 24. What lesson can we learn from the story of Dennis ? A. Grasp(抓住) all, lose all. B. No sweat, no sweet. C. It is no use crying over spilt milk. D. He who makes no mistakes makes nothing. B Do you know how to use a mobile phone without being rude to the people around you? Talking during a performance irritates (激怒) people. If you are expecting an emergency call, sit near the exit doors and set your phone to vibrate (振动). When your mobile phone vibrates, you can leave quietly and let the others enjoy the performance. Think twice before using mobile phones in elevators, museums, churches or other indoor public places—especially enclosed spaces. Would you want to listen to someone?s conversation in these places? Worse yet, how would you feel if a mobile phone rang suddenly during a funeral!
It happens more often than you think. Avoid these embarrassing situations by making sure your mobile phone is switched off. When eating at a restaurant with friends, don?t place your mobile phone on the table. This conveys the message that your phone calls are more important than those around you. Mobile phones have sensitive microphones that allow you to speak at the volume you would on a regular phone. This enables you to speak quietly so that others won?t hear the details of your conversations. If you are calling from a noisy area, use your hand to direct your voice into the microphone. Many people believe that they can?t live without their mobile phone. Owning a mobile phone definitely makes life more convenient, but limit your conversations to urgent ones and save the personal calls until you are at home. 25. What should you do when you need to answer a phone call during a performance? A. Call back after the performance. B. Answer it near the exit door. C. Talk outside the exit door. D. Speak in a low voice. 26. Putting your mobile phone on a restaurant table may make your friends think_____. A. you prefer to talk to your friends at the table B. you value your calls more than your friends C. you are enjoying the company of your friends D. you are polite and considerate of your friends 27. The author implies that the use of mobile phones in such places as museums should be_____. A. limited B. expected C. encouraged D. recommended C Low-Cost Gifts for Mother's Day Gift No. I Offer to be your mother's health friend. Promise to be there for any and all doctor's visits whether a disease or a regular medical check-up. Most mothers always say "no need," another set of eyes and ears is always a good idea at a doctor's visit. The best part ? This one is free. Gift No. 2 Help your mother organize all of her medical records, which include the test results and medical information. Put them all in one place. Be sure to make a list of all of her medicines and what times she takes them. "Having all this information in one place could end up saving your mother's life," Dr. Marie Savard said. Gift No. 3 Enough sleep is connected to general health conditions. "Buy your mother cotton sheets and comfortable pillows to encourage better sleep," Savard said. "We know that good sleep is very important to our health." Gift No. 4 Some gift companies such as Presents for Purpose allow you to pay it forward this Mother's Day
by picking gifts in which 10 percent of the price you pay goes to a charity (慈善机构) Gift givers can choose from a wide variety of useful but inexpensive things -many of which are "green" and then choose a meaningful charity from a list. When your mother gets the gift, she will be told that she has helped the chosen charity. 28. What are you advised to do for your mother at doctor's visits? A. Take notes. B. Be with her. C. Buy medicine. D. Give her gifts. 29. Where can you find a gift idea to improve your mother?s sleep? A. In Gift No. 1. B. In Gift No. 2. C. In Gift No. 3. D. In Gift No. 4. 30. Buying gifts from Presents for Purpose allows mothers to A. enjoy good sleep B. be well-organized C. bet extra support D. give others help 第二节：七选五（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选 项。 My mother is a diligent and kind woman.
