It was another attack of pneumonia(肺炎). My husband and I stayed with him for the weekend but had to return to our jobs on Monday. Local relatives would help Dad get home from the hospital and look after him. But I longed to be able to let him know that we cared too, even when we weren’t with him. Then I remember a family tradition when our children were small. When leaving their grandparents’ home after a visit, each child would write a note to their grandparents. They hid notes in the cereal(麦片), under a hairbrush, next to the phone or even in the microwave oven. For days, their parents would smile as they discovered these signs of our love. So as I tidied Dad’s kitchen and made up a bed for him downstairs in the living room, I wrote some notes. Some were practical, “Dad, I put the food in the fridge so it wouldn’t spoil.” Some expressed my love, “Dad I hope you will sleep well in your new bed.” Most notes were downstairs where he would stay for several weeks until he recovered strength, but one note I hid upstairs under his pillow, “Dad, if you have found this one, you must be feeling better. We are so glad. ” Just like his medicine strengthened him physically, these “emotional vitamins” would improve his spiritual health. Several weeks later, in one of our regular phone calls, I asked Dad how he was doing. He said, “Pretty good. I just found your note under my pillow upstairs!” 24. We can infer from the text that the author’s father________. A. got home from hospital alone B. had suffered from the same illness before C. asked her to return to work D. lived with his relatives 25. The children hid notes in their grandparents’ home in order to ________. A. follow a family tradition B. play tricks on their grandparents C. show their gifts to their grandparents D. give their grandparents a pleasant surprise 26. Following the family tradition, the author________. A. often called her father B. wrote some notes to her father C. longed to visit her father D. worried about her father 27. Having heard what her father said, the author would feel________. A. surprised B. lucky C. pleased D. sad C Searching for airfares often seems like a game that passengers are bound to（一定，注定）lose. Prices change from day to day, even minute to minute. Looking through multiple websites for the best deal can be a big challenge. Even when you do book, there’s no guarantee that you are going to get the best price. “You just don’t know when to pull the trigger. It’s not like buying anything else I can think of,” said George Hobica, founder of Airfarewatchdog.com. Harriet Levy paid $179 for a recent round-trip flight on American Airlines between New York and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Sitting just one row behind her, Shirley Harrison paid $215. A few rows back, Ellis and Dianne Traub paid $317 each. There were at least 12 fares on the flight, ranging from $169 to $360. There’s no reason for it, Harrison said. Fares can vary significantly in just a few hours. One Delta flight from New York to Los Angeles jumped from $755 to $1,143 from a Friday to Saturday in late April, then fell to $718 on Sunday. The flight was one of a dozen the Associated Press (美国联合通讯社)followed over three months for a vacation between July 16 and 22. The number one finding: avoid booking tickets on weekends. It’s the most expensive time to buy. There’s no way to guarantee the best fare. But before booking, travelers should pay attention to this additional advice: ● Book on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. That’s when airlines most often offer sales. ● Buy in advance, but not too early. The best time is four to six weeks before traveling. In general, prices for any given flight are highest eight to ten weeks and two to three weeks in advance. ● Make use of social media. Airlines are giving more benefits like exclusive (独家) sales to travelers who interact (互动) with them on Twitter and Facebook. Those specials are often gone
within hours. ● The so-called discount airlines --- JetBlue, Air-Tran, Southwest and Frontier --- adjust their fares less frequently than other airlines, so you can feel more confident that the price will stay the same. But their prices aren’t always the lowest. Researching multiple airlines’ fares is the only way to get a good deal. 28. What can we infer from the first sentence of the text? A. Passengers are unable to search for airfares. B. Airlines often play games with passengers. C. Airfares are set in different situations. D. It’s difficult for passengers to get the best price. 29. The underlined phrase “pull the trigger” in Paragraph 3 probably means________ . A. start searching B. get the highest price C. make a purchase D. get on board the plane 30. By using a lot of figures, the author intends to ________. A. show there is standard price for every single airline B. prove airfares can vary widely C. guarantee passengers a low price D. discover the rules behind airfares 31. Passengers are advised to book flights ________. A. in the middle of the week B. on special websites C. several months before traveling D. with airlines which are famous for offering discount prices D Can you remember the first time you learned to ride a bike or drive a car? Learning these skills changed your life forever and opened up new horizons. Learning about computers can be like learning how to ride a bike or drive a car. Once you have invested the time to master the skills, you will never go back to the old days. The new technology is simply too convenient and too powerful. Technological developments through the years have enabled us to do more with less effort. We have continuously looked for better ways of doing things. Each invention and new development has allowed us to extend our capabilities. Today we see one of the most dramatic technologies ever developed—the computer. It extends the capabilities of our minds. Computers have saved organizations millions of dollars. Furthermore, these same computer systems have opened up new opportunities that would have gone undiscovered or neglected. The computer may multiply what we can do, and the return on investment is high. The growth of computer usage is surprising. On the other hand, the computer can do serious damage. Invasion of privacy(侵犯隐私), fraud(欺诈), and computer-related mistakes are just a few shocking examples. The computer is like a double-edged sword. It has the ability to cut us free from some activities, but it can also cut deep into profits, personal privacy, and our society in general. How it is used is not a function of technology. It is strictly a function of how people decide to use or misuse this new technology. The choice is yours, and only through a knowledge of computer systems will you be able to avoid the dangers while enjoying the many, many benefits of the computer age. 32. The writer thinks learning about computers is like learning how to ride a bike or drive a car because ________. A. it is simple and practical B. it needs a lot of practice C. it takes much time to master the skills D. it leads people to new life experiences 33. According to the passage, computers bring people the following benefits except ________. A. avoiding mistakes B. saving money C. making money D. opening up opportunities 34. According to the writer, the bad effects of computers can be avoided if we ________. A. have sound knowledge of computer systems B. tell people not to misuse computers C. have strict rules over the use of computers D. make more investments in the technology 35. This passage is probably written for ________. A. computers B. computer producers C. computer learners D. computer programmers

Saving is very important because natural resources in our world may run out one day, so we should save some for our offspring. Meanwhile, saving can help us avoid producing waste, which will make our homeland more beautiful. As students, we should make contributions to saving resources and protecting our environment. For example, we can recycle our textbooks or use both sides of our exercise books. In this way, more trees would be saved. What’s more, we Chinese have a good tradition of saving and regard wasting as a shame, so we c all for everybody’s action to do what we can to make our beautiful life last forever. Best wishes!
