It should always be 43 the tip of our 44 if we are truly grateful to others who help us each day and to 45 who has richly blessed（赐福） us with more wealth and freedom than any other countries in history. Despite all of God’s abundant （充裕的） blessings, we’re often too 46 to give thanks and too quick to complain. Maybe we’re so focused on ourselves and 47 with our lives that we forget to give thanks. Or maybe it’s because those of us in America have gotten used to our level of wealth and leisure which is beyond even the imagination of much of the world’s population.
We tend to 48 our blessings for granted, like the story about a homeowner who 49 a real-estate agent （房地产经纪人） to prepare an ad to 50 his home. The homeowner 51 the ad in the paper about his home’s many 52 features. He called the real-estate agent to say he no longer wished to sell the house. When 53 what changed his mind, the homeowner said, “After reading your ad, I 54 that I already live in the house I have 55 wanted to live in.” In this season of Thanksgiving in particular, it’s time to count our blessings and use that simple phrase, “I thank you.” 36.

A I still remember the last time I went to the playground with two of my children. It had rained during the night and the playground was very muddy (泥泞的). They had just put on clean clothes, so I was a little worried about the mud on the playground. It was not long before Kathy got her beautiful skirt dirty on the playground. She dug through the rocks. I was about to blame (指责) her for getting her clothes dirty when she ran towards me with a smile on her face. When she got to me, she handed me a little heart-shaped rock and said, "Here, Mom! Here is a heart for you —just because I love you! Keep it!" With tears in my eyes, I thanked her. Should I blame her for getting her clothes muddy? No way! I still have that little heart-shaped rock. It is one of the best gifts that I have ever received. I realized that many times it was not necessary for us adults to worry about the small things our children did. Let them do what they’d like to. I will spend a lot more time on the playground with my children. I’m sure I will learn a lot from them. It makes me think of the days when my grandfather told me, "You would not enter the kingdom of happiness until you pretended (假装) to be a small child." 56. At first, the author wanted to blame Kathy because she __________. A. ran on the playground B. dug through rocks C. got her clothes dirty D. gave her a muddy rock 57. The author was deeply moved by her daughter’s _____.
A. digging task on the playground C. smile on her face when running A. allow kids to do whatever they like B. keep the presents given by children
B. love of the muddy playground D. special way to show her love
58. From Paragraph 2, we can learn that the author thought parents should _________.
C. not give too much care to their own children D. not worry about the small things their children do 59. The author’s grandfather’s words imply that _______. A. children may find happiness more easily in life B. children care more about happiness than adults C. adults can not share children’s happiness D. adults find it hard to know children’s happiness 60. The last paragraph mainly tells us _____________. A. the theme of the story B. the discussion on the story C. the author’s future life with her kids D. the author’s memory of her grandfather B Drinking green tea is known to be good for you. Some people suggest drinking 2-3 cups of it a day, and I would say at least one is highly advisable. As many people have already known, tea is filled with powerful antioxidants (抗氧化剂) that will help stop free radicals (自由基). Free radicals are harmful to our systems in that they can lead to cell (细胞) and DNA change, even cell death, and can lead to cancer. Green tea has been drunk throughout Thailand, China, India and Japan for centuries. It is known in these places that green tea can help improve digestion (消化) and mental clearness and lower one’s blood sugar. It can also help control bleeding, so that injuries can be cured more quickly. Some studies even suggest that drinking green tea on a regular basis can help a person lose weight. Green tea can help a person feel fuller throughout the day with its pleasant smell and taste, and just taking the time to smell it can help ease (减轻) one’s hunger. In short, both studies of green tea and its history show that it is a great thing to drink for your health. 61. Which of the following can cause DNA change and even cell death? A. Cell change. C. Free radicals. B. Blood sugar. D. Antioxidants.
62. According to Paragraph 3, drinking green tea has all the following effects EXCEPT ______________. A. being good for digestion B. curing high blood pressure C. improving mental clearness D. helping stop bleeding
63. How can drinking green tea help one lose weight? A. By making one feel less hungry. B. There is no fat in green tea. C. By burning one’s energy. D. By making one stop wanting to drink. 64. From the passage we learn that _______. A. a cup of tea a day keeps the doctor away B. tea is popular in Asian countries C. the more tea we drink, the more weight we lose D. green tea is healthier than other kinds of tea 65. The purpose of the passage is to tell us ____________. A. how to stay healthy B. what kind of tea one should drink C. green tea helps one stay slim D. drinking green tea is healthy C
Without proper planning, tourism can cause problems. For example, too many tourists can crowd public places that are also enjoyed by the inhabitants of a country. If tourists create too much traffic, the inhabitants become annoyed and unhappy. They begin to dislike tourists and to treat them impolitely. They forget how much tourism can help the country's economy. It is important to think about the people of a destination country and how tourism affects them. Tourism should help a country, keep the customs and beauty that attract tourists. Tourism should also advance the wealth and happiness of local inhabitants. Too much tourism can be a problem. If tourism grows too quickly, people must leave other jobs to work in the tourism industry. This means that other parts of the country's economy can suffer. On the other hand, if there is not enough tourism, people can lose jobs. Businesses can also lose money. It costs a great deal of money to build large hotels, airports, air terminals, first-class roads, and other support facilities（配套设施）needed by tourist attractions. For example, a major international class tourism hotel can cost as much as 50 thousand dollars per room to build．If this room is not used most of the time, the owners of the hotel lose money. Building a hotel is just a beginning. There must be many support facilities as well, including roads to get to the hotel, electricity, sewers to handle waste and water. All of these support facilities cost money. If they are not used because there are not enough tourists, jobs and money are lost. 66. Which of the following do you think has been discussed in the part before this selection? A．It is extremely important to develop tourism. B．Building roads and hotels is essential. C．Support facilities are highly necessary. D．Planning is of great importance to tourism. 67. The underlined word "inhabitants" (in Paragraph 1) probably means_______ . A．tourists B．passengers C．population D．citizens 68. Too much tourism can cause all these problems EXCEPT ________ . A．a bad effect on other industries
B．a change of tourists' customs C．over-crowdedness of places of interest D．pressure on traffic 69. It can be inferred from the text that ________ . A．the author doesn't like tourism developing so fast B．local people will benefit from tourist attraction C．other parts of a country's economy won't benefit from tourism much D．we can't build too many support facilities 70. The author thinks it is good for local people to know that tourism will ________ . A．waste a lot of money B．weaken their economy C．help establish their customs D．help improve their life
