Old age may not sound exciting. But recent findings offer good news for older people and for people who worried about getting older. Researchers found that people become happier and experience less worry after they reach the age of 50.In fact，they said，by the age of 85，people are happier with their life than they were when they were 18 years old. The findings came from a survey of more than 340,000 adults in the US.The Gallup Organization questioned them by telephone in 2008.At that time，the people were between the ages of 18 and 85. The researchers asked questions about emotions like happiness，sadness and worry.They also asked about mental or emotional stress. Arthur Stone in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at Stony Brook University in New York led the study. His team found that levels of stress were highest among adults between the ages of 22 and 25. The findings showed that stress levels dropped sharply after people reached their fifties. Happiness was highest among the youngest adults and those in their early seventies. The people least likely to report feeling negative emotions were those in their seventies and eighties. The study also showed that men and women have similar emotional patterns as they grow older. However，women at all ages reported more sadness，stress and worry than men.
The findings appeared in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Researchers said they didn’t know why happiness increases as people get older. One theory is that， people grow older， as they grow more thankful for what they have and have better control of their emotions. They also spend less time thinking about bad experiences. Professor Stone said the emotional patterns could be linked to changes in how people see the world，or maybe even changes in brain chemistry. The researchers also considered possible influences like having young children，being unemployed or being single. But they found that influences like these did not affect the levels of happiness and wellbeing related to age. 56．How many people were involved in this survey? A．More than 340 adults. C．More than 340,000 adults. B．Less than 314,000 adults. D．More than 3,000,000 adults.
57．What does the underlined word “negative” in Paragraph 6 mean? A．负面的 B．积极的 C．平和的 D．激烈的
58．What kind of people has the highest stress levels? A．People who were between the ages of 18 and 85. B．Those in their seventies and eighties. C．People who reached their fifties. D．Adults between the ages of 22 and 25. 59．Which of the following is NOT true? A．Men and women have similar emotional patterns as they grow older. B．Researchers know exactly why happiness increases as people get older. C．Women at all ages reported more sadness，stress and worry than men. D．Levels of stress were highest among adults between the ages of 22 and 25. 60．Which of the following is the best title for this passage? A．The Older，the Happier B．Why Elder People Feel Happier than Young people? C．Different Emotional Patterns Between Men and Women D．What Makes the Elder Happy？
Cell phone use has become more and more common among high school students, but a clear decision hasn’t yet been reached on their appropriate use in schools. Cell phones, supporters say, are useful to both parents and students. In addition, cell phones can be lifesavers in an emergency, providing police with important and timely information. Some teachers also point out that cell phones have acedemic uses. Older students can conduct phone interviews during class time with teacher supervision, for instance. Also, many cell phones now have Internet capability, built-in calculators,and memories able to hold entire books. For schools with limited technologies available to students, cell phones can be used as computers. But some argue that the disadvantages outweigh the benefits. The primary concern is that
cell phones take students’ attention away form their study. Even though most schools require that phones be turned off during school hours, such a rule is difficult to enforce; for instance , students who leave class for a bathroom break could use the phone while out of the room. Should a phone ring in class, the entire classroom is disrupted and teachers report that many students will answer the call. Cheating and inappropriate photos are also concerns related to cell phones. Teachers have caught high school students taking pictures of tests to pass along to students in later classes, for instance, or accessing photos of textbook pages or notes during tests. Inappropriate photos taken in dressing room and restrooms have also become a problem in some schools. Many school systems have banned camera phones while still allowing tradional cell phones. Cell phones have become a permanent part of society.But keeping up with technological advances is not easy. Schools need guidelines to govern inappropriate cell phone use. Teachers should post school and classroom policies regarding cell phones, and the class should discuss these policies at the beginning of the school year. 61. Some people argue that cell phones can be lifesavers for students because they ___________. A. can provide first aid B. can help inform the police in time C. can help police find criminals D. can receive important information 62. Some teachers support cell phone use among students because they think that__________. A. cell phone is a useful educational tool B. cell phones help students improve memory C. students need to know technological advances D. students need to know changes in school plans. 63. What is the main reason given by people against students’ use of cell phones? A. Students cannot focus on their study. B.Cell phones make noises in classroom. C. Cell phones are financial burdens to students. D. Students use cell phones to cheat during tests. 64. By saying the underlined sentence in the last paragraph, what does the writer mean? A. It’s not easy to keep up with modern technological developments. B. Cell phone technology has improved rapidly in the past few years. C. Cell phones have more functions because of technological advances. D. It’s not easy to prevent inapproapriate cell phone use among students. 65. The writer holds the idea that_________. A. students should use cell phones properly B. students should be forbidden to use cell phones C. it is impossible to make a cell phone use policy D. it is impossible to limit students’ use of cell phones
Parents and kids today dress alike, listen to the same music, and are friends. Is this a good thing? Sometimes, when Mr. Ballmer and his 16-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, listen to rock music together and talk about interests both enjoy, such as pop culture, he remembers his more distant relationship with his parents when he was a teenager. “I would never have said to my mom, ‘Hey, the new Weezer album is really great. How do you like it?’” says Ballmer. “There was just a complete gap in taste.”
Music was not the only gulf. From clothing and hairstyles to activities and expectations, earlier generations of parents and children often appeared to move in separate orbits. Today, the generation gap has not disappeared, but it is getting narrow in many families. Conversations on subjects such as sex and drugs would not have taken place a generation ago. Now they are comfortable and common. And parent—child activities, from shopping to sports, involve a feeling of trust and friendship that can continue into adulthood. No wonder greeting cards today carry the message, “To my mother, my best friend.” But family experts warn that the new equality can also result in less respect for parents. “There’s still a lot of strictness and authority on the part of parents out there, but there is a change happening,” says Kerrie, a psychology professor at Lebanon Valley College. “In the middle of that change, there is a lot of confusion among parents.” Family researchers offer a variety of reasons for these evolving roles and attitudes. They see the 1960s as a turning point. Great cultural changes led to more open communication and a more democratic process that encourages everyone to have a say. “My parents were on the ‘before’ side of that change, but today’s parents, the 40-year-olds, were on the ‘after’ side,” explains Mr. Ballmer. “It’s not something easily accomplished by parents these days, because life is more difficult to understand or deal with, but sharing interests does make it more fun to be a parent now.” 66. The underlined word “gulf ” in Para.3 most probably means _________. A. interest B. distance C. difference D. separation 67. Which of the following shows that the generation gap is disappearing? A. Parents help their children develop interests in more activities. B. Parents put more trust in their children’s abilities. C. Parents and children talk more about sex and drugs. D. Parents share more interests with their children. 68. The change in today’s parent-child relationship is _________. A. more confusion among parents B. new equality between parents and children C.1ess respect for parents from children D. more strictness and authority on the part of parents 69. By saying “today’s parents, the 40-year-olds, were on the ‘after’ side.” the author means that today’s parents _________. A. follow the trend of the change B. can set a limit to the change C. fail to take the change seriously D. have little difficulty adjusting to the change 70. The purpose of the passage is to _________. A. describe the difficulties today’s parents have met with B. discuss the development of the parent—child relationship C. suggest the ways to handle the parent—child relationship D. compare today’s parent—child relationship with that in the past

应番号后的横线上） 。（共5小题；每小题2分，满分10分） Doing fashion their way We all know about fashion shows in Paris and New York, but what about McLane High School in Fresno,California? At McLane, teenage models walked down the cafeteria stage to music, flashing pink lights and a smoke machine. A crowd of 500 students at the school’s show this month screamed as if Justin Bieber was walking down the catwalk instead of their 14-to 18-year –old classmates who had designed their own outfits. The Art Chic Fashion Show was the result of two months of work by about 200 students in Paul Germain’s art classes. Students were tasked with creating a completely new design---no Googling was allowed. Creating the outfits was harder than you might expect. Many students say the class is the hardest they’ve ever had. In a school that had the lowest graduation rate in Fresno last year, where 87 percent of students are poor enough to get a free or reduced-price lunch, Germain holds his students to high standards. As Germain puts it: “Expect a miracle and make your miracle happen.” Students handed in at least 32 sketches before Germain gives his approval. They spend a month and a half in the classroom using needle and thread, staples and cloth or other materials to create wearable art for student models to show off on the runway. Germain came up with the idea for the fashion show after the retired local fashion designer Richard Ingersoll spoke to his class. “The kids were just fascinated,” Germain says. “ They loved it.’’ Everybody wears clothes, so Germain thought the kids could relate to the topic. “That’s key”, says Susan Schlievert, a Fresno teacher. “Sometimes the arts are the reason they stay in school,” she says. “ That is the motivation. They’re not staying there to write an essay.
