He was 38 on the ground with two doctors beside him. This time my 39 paused. He wasn’t a 40 at all. He was 41 certainly, but he wore a nice suit and was clean-shaven. Shame rocked me. How painful for that sick, old man to have 42 from the coldness of the entire day! He probably reached out to 43 for help. No one stopped, out of sight, out of 44 .

However, the 48 of the old Winter Man came back to me vividly. I walked back to him and 49 down to ask him if he was OK. He told me he was diabetic（糖尿 病的）and it might be a good idea to 50 an ambulance, which I did—it was a few minutes away. In a whisper, he said to me, “Thank you. Nobody 51 .except you.” We looked into each other’s eyes for a moment. 52 was spoken without a word being said. As the 53 ambulance’s alarm bell shows the arrival of help, a number of emotions rushed at me. I felt sad for the Winter Man and ashamed that I had almost walked past another person 54 .

But did you know that there are ways to make your brain healthier and smarter?
Studies show that when the brain is compelled to do something new, it creates new neural pathways（神经通路）. The more pathways you have, the faster you can think and the better memory you will have. Ten steps toward a smarter brain Limit your TV time Watching an average TV show requires very little brain power and brings the same result as neglecting physical exercise. Your brain will become weak just as your muscles do. If you watch TV, choose something educational and informative. Travel Traveling to a new country forces you to see and do things in a new way, providing stimulation （刺激） to the brain. Learn a new language Acquiring a new language involves different learning methods. Learning a language sharpens your brain and helps prevent memory problems in later years. Master a new subject Each week, select an animal, a bird or a fish, and read everything you can about it. Stretch （最 大限度利用）your brain as you become an expert on the subject. Use your non-dominant hand If you are right-handed, use your left hand for everyday activities, or use your right hand if you are left-handed. Doing familiar things in a new way will cause your brain to create new neural networks. Read often As you read, take the time to look up people or places that aren’t familiar. Reading expands your vocabulary if you search for words and definitions that you don’t know. Do puzzles According to the Mayo Clinic, doing sudoku and crossword puzzles keeps the brain sharp into your senior years. Calculate while you shop As you put things in your grocery cart, total everything in your head. See how much close you get to the actual total. Play video games Studies have found that certain video games force you to use critical decision-making skills and can even improve students’ math scores. Tweet!（推特，类似中国的微信） Read messages from people who represent a wide range of interests. And some say that learning to express yourself in just 140 characters is a great brain challenge! So get in the habit of challenging your brain, and make yourself smarter! 56. What’s the main idea of the passage? A. Get in the habit of learning something new B. Develop an exercise plan C. Make Your Brain Smarter D. Tips to make yourself healthier 57. What does the underlined word “compelled” mean? A. requested B. allowed C. completed D. forced
58. What can we learn from the passage? A. Educational and informative TV shows are helpful to limit your TV time. B. Doing sudoku and crossword puzzles may make you confused. C. Playing certain video games may help you sharpen your mind. D. Writing short messages often can also make you healthier . B CONFUCIUS would be happy if he lived in the modern world. He would see his works and philosophies still popular among teenagers even though they speak Internet slang (网络语言), like PK, PLMM and GG. In Changzhou No 2 Middle School, Jiangsu, all Senior 1 students now take a course in "Lun Yu" (The Analects of Confucius, 《论语》), once a week. The school aims to improve students' appreciation of the Confucian heritage as well as ancient Chinese civilization. "Students' attendance in this course will account for 30 percent of their Chinese score on the final exam. This reward encourages their interest in the course, which is difficult but full of wisdom," said Cao Yongzhong, a Chinese teacher at the school. It won't be easy for students to enjoy The Analects of Confucius in ancient Chinese as they have so many other subjects to learn and exams to prepare for. Cheng Yun, 17, didn't like the "additional burden" at first, but now it turns out to be a course that she looks forward to. "I thought it would take up my time for homework, but it doesn't. Confucius' sentences are short and concise (精炼的). I even use some of his wise sayings in my compositions, which makes my writing more persuasive," Cheng said. Despite the fact that all students are required to learn some chapters of the book when in junior school, they may be too young to understand the truths revealed by Confucius. "Although I prefer the language we use nowadays to Confucius', 'The master said' in the book does help me shape my personality," said Zhang Junzhuo, 17. Here are some of Confucius' sayings. See if you can figure out to which sentences they are in "The Analects of Confucious": ? Learning without thought is labour lost; thought without learning is perilous. ? The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions. ? The gentle man is open and at ease; the mean man is full of worries and anxieties. ? Don't do to others what you would not want done to yourself. ? The mechanic who wishes to do his work well must first sharpen his tools. 59. Which do you think is the best title for this passage? A. Difficult But Interesting B. “Confucius Says” Into Classes C. I Appreciate Lun Yu D. The Analects of Confucius 60. What does the phrase “account for” in paragraph 3 mean? A. To explain why something happens. B. To form a particular amount or part of something. C. To tell the number of something. D. To work out something. 61. What can we infer from the passage? A. Students can easily enjoy the ideas in Lun Yu. B. You’ll get 30 marks from learning Lun Yu.
C. Learning “Lun Yu” is an additional burden to students, as they have so many other subjects to learn and exams to prepare for. D. The No. 2 Middle School stress that students should enjoy ancient Chinese civilization. C Dear Kind-Trustee-Who-Sends-Orphans-to-College, Here I am! I traveled yesterday for four hours in a train. It’s a funny feeling, isn’t it? I never rode in one before. College is the biggest, most puzzling place — I get lost whenever I leave my room. I will tell you more about it later when I’m feeling less confused; also I will tell you about my lessons. Classes don’t begin until Monday morning, and this is Saturday night. But I wanted to write a letter first just to get acquainted(认识的). It seems strange to be writing letters to somebody you don't know. It seems strange for me to be writing letters at all — I've never written more than three or four in my life, so please overlook it if these are not a model kind. Before leaving yesterday morning, Mrs. Lippett and I had a very serious talk. She told me how to behave all the rest of my life, and especially how to behave towards the kind gentleman who is doing so much for me. I must take care to be very respectful. But how can one be very respectful to a person who wishes to be called John Smith? Why couldn’t you have picked out a name with a little personality? I might as well write letters to Dear Flagpole or Dear Clothes-line. I have been thinking about you a great deal this summer; having somebody take an interest in me after all these years makes me feel as though I had found a sort of family. It seems as though I belonged to somebody now, and it’s a very comfortable feeling. I must say, however, that when I think about you, my imagination has very little to work upon. There are just three things that I know: I.You are tall. Ⅱ. You are rich. Ⅲ. You hate girls. I suppose I might call you Dear Mr. Girl-Hater. Only that's rather rude to me. Or Dear Mr. Rich-Man, but that's rude to you, as though money were the only important thing about you. Besides, being rich is such a very external（外在的） quality. Maybe you won’t stay rich all your life; lots of very clever men get broke in Wall Street. But at least you will stay tall all your life! So I've decided to call you Dear Daddy-Long-Legs. I hope you won’t mind. It’s just a private pet name we won’t tell Mrs. Lippett. The ten o’clock bell is going to ring in two minutes. Our day is divided into sections by bells. We eat and sleep and study by bells. It's very lifeful. There it goes! Lights out. Good night. Observe how precisely I obey rules — due to my training in the John Grier Home. Yours most respectfully, Jerusha Abbott To Mr. Daddy-Long-Legs Smith 62. Jerusha thought that she couldn’t be very respectful to “John Smith” because __________. A. he was a total stranger to her B. she was sure it was a false identity C. the name was too common D. nobody would like to be called that way 63. According to Jerusha, being rich may be __________. A. temporary B. unimaginable C. traditional D. rude 64. The fact that her day is “divided into sections by bells” makes Jerusha feel __________. A. too busy B. restricted by rules C. pressed for time D. full of energy 65. Jerusha decided to call the trustee Dear Daddy-Long-legs __________. A. in order to show her respect for him B. because it was his only inner quality C. in order to make them feel closer to each other D. because she had always wanted a father V. 单词拼写（每题 1 分，共 10 分） 66.

As for me, I want dream, friendship and an admission notice to a famous university most. Dream would be on the top of my list. Only by pursuing our dreams can we enjoy a meaningful and fulfilled life. Money can buy a comfortable life, but without dream, even a millionaire would find his life boring.
A person without friends can never be happy. Our life is full of joys and sorrows, which we need people to share with. Faced with difficulties, we need friends to give us comfort and help. Just as a saying goes, “A friend in need is a friend indeed”. Friendship can help us go through ups and downs of life, so friendship would be on my list as well. After working hard for so many years, I deserve to go to a good university, because being admitted to a famous university can help me live up to my parents’ expectations and bring me a bright future.
