Unlike other gifts, it came without wrap. On September 11th, 1958, Mum gave birth to Richard. After she brought him home from hospital, she put him in my lap, saying, “I promised you a gift, and here it is. “ What an honor! I turned four a month earlier and none of my friends had such a baby doll of their own. I played with it day and night. I sang to it. I told it stories. I told it over and over how much I loved it! One morning, however, I found its bed empty. My doll was gone! I cried for it. Mum wept and told me that the poor little thing had been sent to a hospital. It had a fever. For several days, I heard Mum and Dad whispering such words as “hopeless”， “pitiful”， and “dying”， which sounded ominous. “Christmas was coming. Don't expect any presents this year，” Dad said, pointing at the socks I hung in the living room. “If your baby brother lives, that'll be Christmas enough.” As he spoke, his eyes were filled with tears. I'd never seen him cry before. The phone rang early on Christmas morning. Dad jumped out of bed to answer it. From my bedroom I heard him say, “What? He's all right？” He hung up and shouted upstairs. “The hospital said we can bring Richard home！” “Thank God！” I heard Mum cry. From the upstairs window, I watched my parents rush out to the car. I had never seen them so happy. And I was also full of joy. What a wonderful day! My baby doll would be home. I ran downstairs. My socks still hung there flat. But I knew they were not empty; they were filled with love! 16. What happened to the author on September 11th, 1958? A. He got a baby brother. C. He became four years old. A. Impossible. A. decorate the room A. Excitement. Disappointment. 20. What is the passage mainly about?

The Ministry of Health has called for more awareness from the public on the mental health of the young，as part of efforts to mark World Mental Health Day. More than 15 percent of the Chinese youth have been found with mental problems， and about 30 million young people under 17 are suffering from depression，the Shanghai-based Wenhui Daily reported. The World Health Organization estimated that before 2020，the rate of children with mental problems will increase to 50 percent，and mental problems will become a major factor behind death and illness in the young worldwide. Deng Xiaohong，the spokesperson for the Beijing Municipal Health Bureau，said rapid social change is one of the reasons behind the rising number of youngsters with psychological problems. If these mental diseases are not addressed on time， occurrence of crime， drugtaking and other dangerous behavior are expected to rise. Experts said mental disease could be caused by many factors ， such as the inability to handle interpersonal relations well， unstable emotions and pressure from the overload of study. A number of experts have also said the one-child policy is another reason leading to poor mental health in the young. Children were said to be too “spoiled” and “selfish” in one-child families. Schools in many cities were reported to roll out measures to help students maintain their mental well-being. Yin Jingmiao，a teacher of the Beijing No. 105 Middle School，told China Daily that the school invites psychologists to provide counseling to students three times a month. “Students can be arranged to have 40-minute counseling sessions，” Yin said. The school also gives lectures on mental health to senior grade students before they take the national college entrance exams，to help ease any anxiety arising from the tests. 21．What is the purpose of the passage? A．To urge awareness on mental health of the young. B．To give the details of the problems the Chinese youth are facing today. C． To recommend that schools should invite more psychologists to help solve the mental problems among the youth. D．To show us the causes of the mental problems among students. 22．The underlined word “addressed” in the fifth paragraph most probably means ________. A．talked about ________. A．one-child policy well C．lack of special training in mental health D．heavy burden from study B．lack of ability to handle interpersonal relations B．dealt with C．satisfied D．introduced 23．From the passage we can know that the causes of mental problems are mainly the following EXCEPT
24．Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? A．By 2020，about 50 percent of the students in China will have mental problems. B．Mental problems mainly appear among the youth while they are seldom seen among adults.
C．China has the largest number of youngsters with psychological problems. D．Many schools have realized the problem and taken measures. 25．We can infer that to bring down the occurrence of mental problems among the youth， _______. A．Attention should be paid to the education of the only child B．Psychology must be a necessary part of school C．The government will cancel tests to ease the pressure on the students D．Rapid social change plays the leading part in causing mental problems C Have you seen Jurassic Park? In this film, scientists use DNA kept for tens of millions of years to clone dinosaurs. They find trouble, however, when they realize that the cloned creatures are smarter and more dangerous than expected. That’s nothing more than a fiction. But could we really clone endangered animals? To date, the most successful attempt to do so was the cloning of a gaur, a rare ox-like animal from southeast Asia. Scientists used a cow to bring the cloned baby gaur, named Noah. Two days after birth, however, Noah died from a common bacterial infection. Other endangered species that may be cloned include the African bongo antelope (邦戈羚羊), the Sumatran tiger, the cheetah (猎豹), and the giant panda. Next, could we really clone extinct animals? In theory? Yes. To do this, you need a well-kept source of DNA from the extinct animals such as wool mammoth (毛象), Tasmanian tiger, or even dinosaur, and a closely related species, still living, which could serve as a surrogate mother. In reality? Probably not. On the one hand, it’s not likely that extinct animals’ DNA could survive undamaged for such a long time. Cloning extinct animals as wool mammoth, Tasmanian tiger, or dinosaur is much more difficult due to the lack of properly well-preserved DNA. On the other hand, for example, a gaur can have a cow as a surrogate mother, definitely not a monkey. But what about an extinct animal as unique as the panda? What species could possibly serve as a surrogate mother? Cloning presents many exciting possibilities. However, even if extinct animals are brought back, they could not survive in today’s world. Not only do most extinct animals have no habitat to live in, but the other plants and animals they depended on for food may also be gone as well. 26. It can be learned from the passage that ________. A. scientists have cloned the African bongo antelope B. both the cheetah and the giant panda live in Asia C. the gaur lives in Asia and is endangered D. the gaur is an extinct species 27. The underlined words “a surrogate mother” probably refer to a female who __________. A. contributes its eggs to another female C. gives birth to a baby of its own B. gives birth to a baby for another female D. cannot give birth to a baby
28. The difficulty in cloning an extinct species is the lack of ______. A. both the well-preserved DNA and plants to live on B. both the habitat to live in and the well-preserved DNA C. both habitat to live in and plants to live on D. both the well-preserved DNA and a surrogate mother
29. In the author’s opinion, it is possible that ______. A. some extinct species may be cloned, but not survive B. extinct species may be cloned and easily survive C. a gaur can have a monkey as a surrogate mother D. all the extinct species may be cloned 30. Which of the following statements is true according the passage? A. Jurassic Park is a cloned animal. C. We could clone extinct animals in reality. 第二节 （共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Kid’s health: Four steps for fighting stress Everybody gets stressed from time to time. __31__ Some ways of dealing with stress-like screaming or hitting someone –don’t solve (解决) much.

It’s reported that in China many children in mountainous areas still can’t go to school because of poverty. Last week, our class held a discuss ion about how to help them to go to school and live a happy childhood. Here are our suggestions. First, some old textbooks and clothes can be collected and sent to those children so that they can be reused by them. Second, it’s also ve ry important to appeal to more people and social organizations to help and care for those poor children. As far as I’m concerned, we should save some of our pocket money and give it to those children in need. Above all, we should give them respect, never looking down upon them because they are poor. We’ll really appreciate it if you can, through the English Weekly, increase public awareness of the poor children’s living conditions and call on more people to help them.
