But, it is often the belief of others that gives us the courage to try. J. K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter book series，began writing at the age of 6. In her biography, she remembers with great fondness when her good friend Sean, whom she met in secondary school, became the first person to encourage her and help build the confidence that one day she would be a very good writer. “He was the first person with whom I really discussed my serious ambition to be a writer. He was also the only person who thought I could be a success at it, which B. Wearing short hair. C. Wearing large B. He will get a low mark. C. He will be
meant much more to me than I ever told him at the time.” She continued writing for many years in spite of difficulty. However, it wasn't until 1990 that she first thought of Harry Potter. As she recalls，it was on a long train journey from London to Manchester that the idea of Harry Potter simply fell into her head. “To my disappointment, I didn't have a functioning pen with me, and I was too shy to ask anybody if I could borrow one.” That same year, her mother passed away after a ten-year battle with cancer, which deeply affected her writing. She went on to marry and had a daughter, but separated from her husband shortly afterwards. During this time, Rowling was in poor condition. Unemployed, she completed her first novel in area cafes, where she could get her daughter to fall asleep. After being rejected by 12 publishing houses, the first Harry Potter novel was sold to a small British publishing house. Now with seven books that have sold nearly 400 million copies in 64 languages, J. K. Rowling is the highest earning novelist in history. And it all began with her dream of writing that was inspired by the confidence of a friend! 21. Rowling first came up with the idea about Harry Potter________. A. at the age of 6 C. after her mother’s death B. on a train journey D. in her secondary school
22.It can be concluded from Paragraph 5 and 6 that Rowling is________. A. open-minded C. good-natured B. warm-hearted D. strong-willed
23. She felt disappointed on the train because_______. A. the train journey was too long her C. her mind suddenly went blank 24.The text mainly tells us________. A. the broken marriage makes a good novelist B. the courage to have a try is a special ability C. a wonderful idea can come up everywhere D. no one would offer her help B. she didn’t have a pen with
D. encouragement contributes to one’s success B We grew up with the familiar toy bricks that gave us the imagination to build towers and castles. Generations have been attracted by this toy that lets children and adults alike create anything and everything. But with over 200 millions sets being sold a year in over 100 countries, the question remains — where did Lego actually come from? Lego was born from the creative mind of Danish carpenter , Ole Kirk Christiansen, back in the early 1930s. He established a small business in Denmark. He and his team built a variety of household goods like ironing boards along with wooden toys. The Lego name was adopted in 1934, formed from the Danish words “Leg Godt” or “play well”, which means “I study” or “I put together” in Latin. Christiansen’s company continued to make wooden toys until 1942 when fire struck — the entire Lego factory burned to the ground. Unwilling to give in, the factory was rebuilt and the production line restarted soon after. By 1954, Christiansen’s son, Godtfred, had become the junior managing director of the Lego Group. It was during his cooperation with an overseas buyer that he was struck by the idea of a toy system. For over 30 years, the Lego Company made only toys and related goods. Then, in 1968, the company opened its first Legoland in Denmark. Combining the Lego building bricks with a computer, the Robotics Invention System 1.5 is now the most advanced toy in the Lego Company, which is targeted at users aged twelve and above, and that includes any parents or grandparents that want to join in. Now the Lego Company is expanding its production lines to include lights, cameras and so on. Lego Company has done a lot to entertain many children around the world. 25. The author presents the text by ________. A. telling an interesting story B. showing the process in different stages C. introducing a practical method D. describing many different activities 26. Which of the following is NOT true about the Robotics Invention System 1.5?
A. It is the most advanced toy in the Lego Company. B. It combines the Lego building bricks with a computer. C. It is intended for users aged twelve and above. D. It is the most expensive toy invented since 1968. 27. What is the correct order of the following events in the development of Lego? a. The entire Lego factory burned to the ground. b. The company and its products adopted the name Lego. c. The company opened its first Legoland in Denmark. d. Godtfred had become the junior managing director of the Lego Group. A. cadb B. cbad C. abcd D. badc
28. What can we learn from the text A. The Lego Company expands its production lines with computers. B. The author thinks highly of Lego, which entertains many children. C. The name Lego means “I put together” in the Danish language. D. Lego enjoys the greatest popularity among children of 12. C As we all know, getting benched in sports is usually a bad thing. But at one school in Florida, a girl has taken a bench and turned it into something entirely different—a place to find friends. It's called the Friendship Bench. And it's the brainchild of a sixth grader at Palm Bay Elementary—a girl named Acacia Woodley. Acacia' was born without a right hand. And her left hand did not form properly. But Acacia says that it has not stopped her from achieving her goals. “You need to believe in your dreams. If you don't believe in your dreams, I can definitely tell you that they are not going to come true.” She said. Acacia came up with the idea for the Friendship Bench after seeing kids getting bullied at school. She says she has also experienced bullying herself — kids whispering about her or picking on her because she is different. “Some people say they feel sorry for me. I tell them not to， ” she said. “I don't care that I'm different. I like being different.”
The Friendship Bench looks like a lot of other benches. It has arm sets and a place to lean on. But there are also words painted on it —words such as “hope”， “respect”， “listen” and “dream”. Acacia put the benches together with the help from her mother and brother. Any time a kid feels he or she needs a friend, all that kid needs to do is sit on the bench. It is then up to the other kids —or grown-ups —to fill that need. “It's a perfect idea，” Palm Bay Elementary Principal Lori said. “It's something we've needed so badly.” The Friendship Bench has been such a success at Palm Bay Elementary that other schools are now interested in installing one too. “There's a saying in my teacher's classroom，” Acacia said. “If you can dream it, you can achieve it.” 29. The underlined words “getting benched” is closet in meaning to______. A. Having a rest because of tiredness. B. Being kept out of a game in sports. C. Cheering for game players in sports. D. Being encouraged to play in sports. 30.What can be learned about Acacia from the passage? A. She is disabled but leads an active life. B. She is gifted in designing benches. C. She finds it difficult to achieve her goals. D. She finds herself always in need of help. 31. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage? A. Acacia has also suffered from other kids' bullying. B. The kids who sit on the bench feel they need friends. C. Grown-ups are allowed to offer their help to the one in need. D. The Friendship Bench is different from others in the arm sets. 32. What is the best title of this passage? A. Acacia's New Invention C. Help from a Special Bench D B. The Friendship Bench D. Getting Benched in School
