What would you do if you were a fifth grader facing a huge homework load every night,and you found out that there was a machine that would do all the work for you?T hat’s the situation presented tO Sam,Kelsey,Judy and Brenton in Dan Gutman’s entertaining new book for young readers,The Homework Machine.
The four children.all fifth graders in Miss Rasmussen’s class at Grand Canyon School,are as different as any four 11 year-olds could be,but they have one thing in common—all are somewhat separated from their classmates。Sam is a newcomer and has had his share of school trouble before:Kelsey quietly carries her pain at losing her father;Judy’s sense of justice(正义感)always annoys others;and Brenton…well,he is another story entirely.Brenton is easily the Smanest child in school, so smart mat even his parents and teachers have trouble keeping up with him.When Bren— ton and his three classmates are put into the same study group by their teacher,me others discover that Brenton has made a time-saving gadget(装置)to do his homework for him.While the boy genius(天才)is perfectly able to do the homework himself,Sam,Kelsey and Judy could use the help.
Having perfect grades is something new for these three,and as they meet every day to“ do homework”,they find that they’re learning a lot—about each other.Such a good thing Can't last though,and when a secret man starts trying to get in touch with them,the children begin to get nervous. Soon there’s an even more frightening problem--why can’t the Homework Machine be turned off?
Told in different voices(as all the children make statements to the Grand Canyon Police),the story develops in an interesting fashion.Gutman is a gifted writer who has written dozens of children’s books,each with a funny and impressing tale that should be equally liked by boys and girls.
56.
What type of text is it?[1分]
A book review.
A school report.
A science story.
A student,s diary.
57.
What is one common thing that all four children have to deal wim at school?[1分]
Getting along with classmates.
Overcoming sad feelings.
Following school rules.
Keeping good grades.
58.

What can we learn about Brenton?[1分]
He is careless.
He is clever.
He is brave.
He is quiet.
59.

Why did the children get frightened?[1分]
They had no idea how to stop the machine.
They lost the connection with each other.
They were questioned by a strange man.
They were tracked down by the police.

While car sharing is a concept that’s catching on,old—fashioned carpooling where a group of people take turns driving each other to work has always faced a resistance(抗拒).In a study on traffic problems by ABC News,84%of those who drive to work say that they still do it alone.More than half of those lone riders insist that carpooling is just too inconvenient,and 18%say they simply don’t know anyone to share a ride with.
Now technology makes carpooling easier and more fun.NuRide,a company provided an on-line carpooling service last year,offers daily travelers in the Washington area not just a web—based list of would—be carpoolers but also a way to arrange a trip online.Here’s how it works:rider seek—ers enter the positions where their trip will begin and end,the time they want to leave and if they’re willing to drive or just ride in someone else’s car.The website’s search engine then looks for matches and makes lists of the names of traveling companions,along with the car model and the ex—act time and place to meet for each trip.People who want to share the ride can show their interest in joining in online and then meet their car mates when it’s time to 90.
NuRide users aren’t riding with total strangers.They are required to provide the name of their employer and a work e—mail address,both of which need to be checked before being listed on the website.
To attract users,NuRide offers a frequent rider prize:anyone who shares a ride gets a$1 credit.So far,2,300 people have signed up.NuRide CEO Rick Steele said that more man 50.000 tides have been arranged on the website,resulting in 1.4 million fewer miles driven and 650 fewer tons of automobile emissions(机动车排放).
60.
What has the study found about people’s opinion on carpooling?[1分]
Most people think it is inconvenient.
Only l8%can find their road mates.
Some people consider it dangerous.
Half of the people accept the idea.
61.
What can NuRide do for you when you use the service?[1分]
Decide a car model for you to drive.
Help you arrange a shared car trip.
Find your car mates’true names.
Give you a list of car ownerS.
62.
One who wants to share a ride with NuRide users must.[1分]
give information about his interest
meet his car mates before the trip
offer the name of his employer
provide his home address
63.

We may infer that NuRide has helped in.[1分]
improving air quality
reducing driving speed
promoting safety of driving
increasing job opportunities

In my time here at Carleton College,I’ve picked up many valuable pieces of advice from oth—ers,and have come up with a few of my own.With my time here drawing to a close.here’s two of the most valuable ones l wish I had known as a freshman(一年级学生).
First,don’t expect to join all the clubs here.Taking part in them is good,but the workload here is too heavy and time with your friends is too limited to devote yourself to a million and one clubs.Find a couple of things you dig,and you’11 find yourself much happier than if you had spent your time joining every single organization that sounds somewhat interesting to you.Als0,don’t always think of your free time in terms of organizations you can join.Getting really good at some’ thing—an instrument(乐器),creative writin9,cooking—is just as good a use of your free time,e—ven if it might never be taken into any r6sum6(简历).
Second,when Socrates said“Know Yourself”,he was talking about your sleep schedule.You can fool yourself into thinking that an 8:30 a.m.class in the winter is the perfect way to get your day started,but you soon may find yourself emailing the teacher with excuses for being absent.Scheduling all your classes aflemoon is sometimes equally deadly;you might just end up going out the night before knowing you can safely sleep in.I’ve found that the way to take classes is to load them in the middle of the day:nothing before 9:50 a.m.,nothing after 3:10 P.m.
64.
Who is probably the author of this text?[1分]
A student’s parent.
A graduating student.
A university professor.
A freshman at Carleton.
65.
What does the underlined word“dig”in paragraph 2 mean.?[1分]
make a hole in
work hard on
research into
be fond of
66.
What’s the author’s advice about spending free time at college?[1分]
Setting up an interest group.
Enjoying your own hobbies.
Joining as many clubs as you can.
Staying with friends as much as possible.
67.
What’s the best way of taking classes?[1分]
Attend all the classes at night.
Schedule all the classes before noon.
Set them at 8:30 a.m.every mornin9.
Put them from 9:50 a.m.t0 3:10 P.m.

Your dog is as smart as any two year old,according to a new study.Dogs bring much happiness to their owners.and even improve human health.Most two year olds keep us busy in life—an important part of living a long and happy life.According to Stanley Coren,Ph.D.of the University of British Columbia,our dogs are smarter than we thought.
Dr.Coren reviewed many studies to find out that dogs are as smart as 2 to 2.5 year olds.For—get about one word orders--according to Coren,the smartest dogs can learn up to 250 words.Most dogs understand an average of l65 words.“The upper limit of dogs ability to learn language is partly based on a study of a Border Collie(博得牧羊犬)named Rico who showed knowledge of 200 spoken words,and fast—track learning’,which scientists believed to be found only in humans and language.1earning apes(猿).”
Dogs are also great at trickin9.During play,they have the ability to trick humans and other dogs in order to get treats.“And they are nearly as successful in tricking humans as humans are m tricking dogs,”says Coren.
Dogs can also count to four or five,which might explain how they know when their toys are missing.Coren explains,“Their astonishing flashes of smartness and creativity(创造力)are re—minders that they may not be Einsteins,but are sure closer to humans than we thought.”
Animals can do much to keep US happy,healthy,and protect tlS from harm.Stories of dog he-roes can be found using a simple Internet search.Pets teach US sense of duty,keep US from loneliness.and can help with treatment of the disabled.Dogs are smarter than we thought as smart as a two year old.
68.
How do dogs bring happiness and health to humans according to the author?[1分]
By doing funny tricks.
By keeping humans busy.
By serving their owners.
By playing with their owners.
69.
What makes Rico special?[1分]
He seldom uses one word orders.
He uses words like a 2.5 year old.
He is Coren’S favorite subject for study.
He shows a high level of language ability.
70.
What does Dr.Coren say about a d09’S counting ability?[1分]
It is as good as an ape’s.
It is close to human’S.
It leaves a lot to be studied.
It helps them keep their toys.
71.
For someone interested in knowing more stories about dogs,the author suggests that he__________.[1分]
