A. Tour package 1 C. Tour package 2 B A couple of years ago I graduated from art school. After graduation I was unsure of what to do with my degree. I had majored in Illustration（插图） and loved it, but didn’t really feel interested in doing illustrations for any companies. This left me with few options other than freelance（自由 B. Tour package 3 D. Tour package 1&2
作家） and a nannying（保姆） job. I spent two years working as a nanny doing freelance illustration on the side. It just wasn’t quite enough to pay rent, but I loved it, so I worked well over 50 hours a week trying to keep up with both. Just under a year ago I went to a friend’s wedding. I couldn’t think of a gift for them and really didn’t have a lot of money to spare so I used my talents to create a portrait for them. It wasn’t much, and I hoped it would be a good gift. When I handed the portrait to them and they
unwrapped it the looks on their faces was something I did not expect. There were joyful tears in their eyes as they cried, ―That’s us! This is so beautiful!‖ It’s funny because when I was in art school portraits were always my least favorite assignment. I hated drawing people and was always so much more interested in drawing little furry creatures. Once I saw the looks on my friends’ faces after giving them their portrait it was all over. I suddenly loved portraits and wanted to do more. I now take portraits to every wedding I go to and have given them as gifts to the families I nannied for. Every time the reaction makes all of the hard work and time I put into them so worth it. I’ve just started offering couple, family and pet portraits as an item on my etsy shop. 24.After graduation, the author chose to ___________. A.do illustrations for a company. C.work as a nanny&a freelance B.draw portraits. D.draw furry creatures.
25.Why did the author decide to draw a portrait for her friends as a wedding present? A.Her friends requested her to do so. B. She thought it was meaningful. C. She hadn’t enough money available to buy one.
D. She was fond of drawing people best. 26.How did the customers feel when they received their portrait? A.delighted B.frightened C.embarrassed D.shocked
27. What may be the best title of the passage? A. Your major is your future career. B. I gave a gift and it turned into a career. C. I sacrificed a lot for my job. D. You are to do what you desire to do. C About a century ago, the average life-span (寿命) for Americans was about 50 years. Today, the typical American lives for around seventy-eight years. According to a German aging study, the maximum life span in industrialized countries has increased by two years every decade since the mid 19th century. What accounts for such increased longevity? Between 1900 and 1950, inventions such as refrigeration（制冷技术）and sewage treatment （污 水处理） meant that medical young people were able to survive longer. Moreover,
breakthroughs helped contain diseases such as polio（小儿麻痹症）, which killed many children. These advances helped increase the average life span. Medical discoveries after World War II tended to benefit older people. Treatments for heart disease, for example, have allowed the elderly to live longer on average. So does this mean that future medical breakthroughs will result in even longer average life spans, or have we reached our limit? Scientists disagree. Some argue that if science is one day able to remove disease and old-age infirmity, there will be virtually no limit on how long humans can live. Some even predict that by the year 2150, the average life span will have increased to around 120 years.
Other life-expectancy researchers find that scenario(假设) highly unlikely. Our bodies’ cells can keep reproducing for only so long before they peter out（分裂）. Only when science finds a way to keep our cells dividing longer will we see another significant leap in life expectancy. Still, with plenty of exercise and a healthy diet, those who hold the view can always hope that they’ll live long enough to break the record held by Jeanne Louise Calment of France, who lived to be 122. 28.Compared with the average life-span about a century ago, the typical American lives about _______ years longer at present. A.50 B.78 C.28 D.42
29.After World War II, the longer average life spans mainly resulted from________. A.refrigeration and sewage treatment B.medical breakthroughs
C.keeping the cells dividing longer D.reducing polio 30.What is the scientists’ attitude towards the view ―we have reached our life-span limit‖? A.supportive B.objective C. optimistic D.disapproving
31.According to some life-expectancy researchers, keeping our bodies’ cells reproducing before they peter out may be________. A.impossible B. possible C. exciting D.concerning
D Certain aspects of music have the same effect on people even when they live in very different societies, a new study reveals. Researchers asked 40 Mbenzele Pygmies in the Congolese rainforest to listen to short clips of music. They were asked to listen to their own music and to unfamiliar Western music.
The same 19 selections of music were also played to 40 amateur or professional musicians in Montreal. Musicians were included in the Montreal group because Mbenzele Pygmies could be considered musicians as they all sing regularly for ceremonial purposes, the study authors explained. Both groups were asked to rate how the music made them feel using emoticons, such as happy, sad or excited faces. There were significant differences between the two groups as to whether a specific piece of music made them feel good or bad. However, both groups had similar responses to how exciting or calming they found the different types of music. "Our major discovery is that listeners from very different groups both responded to how exciting or calming they felt the music to be in similar ways," Hauke Egermann, of the Technical University of Berlin, said in a news release from McGill University in Montreal. Egermann conducted part of the study as a postdoctoral fellow at McGill. The Montreal participants felt a wider range of emotions as they listened to the Western music than the Pygmies expressed when listening to either their own or Western music. This may be due to the different roles music plays in the two cultures. "Negative emotions are felt to disturb the harmony of the forest in Pygmy culture and are therefore dangerous," Nathalie Fernando, of the University of Montreal's faculty of music, said in the news release. "If a baby is crying, the Mbenzele will sing a happy song. If the men are scared of going hunting, they will sing a happy song -- in general, music is used in this culture to evacuate all negative emotions, so it is not really surprising that the Mbenzele feel that all the music they hear makes them feel good," she explained.
32. Why could Mbenzele Pygmies be regarded as musicians? A. They are crazy about music. B. They major in music at school. C. They can play musical instruments well. D. They often sing songs on ceremony. 33. The study mainly finds that___________. A. Music is universal across cultures. B. Music varies among different countries. C. Western music results in negative emotions. D. Music makes people happy. 34. The underlined word ― evacuate‖ probably means_________. A. set off B. benefit from C. get rid of D. account for
35. The examples mentioned in the last paragraph are to show that_______________. A. music plays different roles in the two cultures B. music plays the same role in the two cultures C. negative music disturbs the harmony of the forest D. happy music is welcomed everywhere

Below is a list of quick and easy steps which will get people to like you. Eye contact and body language. This is important to show that you are polite and respectful. Make sure you make eye contact with the person you are speaking to. 36 For example, don't keep looking at the ground or staring into space, or talk with your arms crossed. 37 38 When engaged in a conversation with someone, be sure to ask them questions about themselves. People generally like to talk about themselves, so it is fairly easy to get people to like
you by being a good listener and taking interest in what they are saying. Know their name. If you are meeting someone for the first time, it is assumed that within the first 90 seconds you will get their name. 39 At the end of the meeting, say your goodbyes but make sure to
use their name, as it makes it more personal ("It was lovely to meet you Grace, hope to see you again soon"). Dress appropriately. People judge on first impressions and this includes your clothes. 40 Nobody
