  My senior year of high school was a very hectic one, to say the least. If I wasn’t studying or worrying about my grades, I was working on after-class activities. It seemed as if my life had turned into one crazy cloud of confusion and I hoped to find some sort of direction.

  Finally, I got a part-time job at the local coffee shop. I had thought it would be easy and, for the most part, stress-free. I pictured myself pouring coffee and becoming close friends with my customers.

  What I hadn’t expected was the people with so many orders. There were moments when I was very angry simply because I couldn’t seem to please anyone. There was always too much sugar, too little ice, or not enough skim milk. However, I kept at it.

  One day, one of my customers came in, depressed. Before he left, I handed him a bag along with his iced coffee. He looked at me questioningly because he hadn’t ordered anything but the coffee. He opened the bag and saw his favorite doughnut (甜甜圈) I had given him. He smiled and thanked me before heading out into the rain.

  The next evening, he came. Instead of ordering something, he handed me a single pink rose and a note.

  “Thanks for being so sweet and thoughtful yesterday. It is so nice to meet someone who’s warm and unselfish. Please don’t change your ways because I truly believe that you will do better. Have a great day!”

  As time went on, I did come across some customers really particular. But anytime I felt depressed, I thought of that man and his kindness. Then I would smile, hold my head up high, clear my throat and ask politely, “How can I help you?”

  4. What does the underlined word “hectic” in Paragraph 1 mean?

  A. Glad. B. Interesting. C. Productive. D. Busy.

  5. What can we know about the author’s part-time job?

  A. It is easy and stress-free. B. It is quite busy and challenging.

  C. It doesn’t need special skills. D. It gives the author a feeling of freshness

  6. The customer’s note ________.

  A. showed his thanks to the author. B. offered suggestions to the author.

  C. encouraged the author to work harder. D. gave an explanation of his condition.

  7. What’s the message the author want to convey?

  A. Kind words are worth much but cost little.

  B. It is impossible to satisfy everyone in our life.

  C. A small act of kindness can make a big difference.

  D. Our attitude determines our suffering or our freedom.

  C

  Tattoos (纹身) are becoming more and more common. But they are not a new thing. Scientists have found some frozen bodies from around 3,000 BC and their skin shows the marks of tattoos. For example, Otzi, the Iceman (the oldest body ever found), was discovered in the mountains of Austria. He had many different lines and crosses tattooed on his back and his knees.

  The most common places to get tattoos are the tops of the arms for men and the bottoms of the backs for women. Any mark can be used but there are some common ideas. Some people like to get animals, like dragons, birds and tigers. Other people like to get something written in a foreign language, so Chinese and Japanese words are common in America and the UK. If you can’t read the language, make sure you get someone to check what they represent because the tattoo artist could write anything and you would never know.

  It is a big decision to get a tattoo because they are very difficult to remove. It is possible with expensive laser surgery (激光手术) but this is very painful and amazingly expensive and the skin will never be perfect afterwards. You want to do a test, to see how you look with a tattoo, you can get a temporary tattoo which disappears after about a month. This kind is very popular in India, where people often have them for festivals.

  In some countries, such as Japan and Korea, tattoos are still connected with law-breaking activities and it isn’t normal to see a tattoo in public. In many places of Europe and America, most people don’t care very much whether you have a tattoo or not, though there are some types of job where they don’t like tattoos. But some Presidents of the USA have had them.

  8. What can we know about tattoos from the first paragraph?

  A. Some frozen bodies were 3,000 years old.

  B. Tattoos appeared early in human history.

  C. The Iceman was the first man to have tattoos.

  D. People in the past liked different lines and crosses.

  9. Why should we be careful when we get tattoos of languages?

  A. Because tattoos are hard to remove.

  B. Because the places to get tattoos are limited.

  C. Because the meanings of the foreign words are important.

  D. Because the educational level of tattoo artists is unreliable.

  10. Why are temporary tattoos getting popular?

  A. It is not difficult to remove them.

  B. They help make people’s skin perfect.

  C. People can have a laser surgery to get them.

  D. They play an important role in some festivals.

  11. What does the last paragraph tell us?

  A. It is impolite to show tattoos in public.

  B. The Japanese are not allowed to get tattoos.

  C. Presidents of the USA support people in getting tattoos.

  D. Tattoos are accepted more easily in some Western countries.

  D

  Born and raised in a digital age, today’s young people are generally tech savvy (技术娴熟的). But when it comes to basic life skills, they’re less capable than the older generation.

  According to a recent study, 69 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds in the UK have no idea how to bleed a radiator(暖气片换水). About 35 percent of them don’t know how to sew on a button, while about 11 percent don’t understand how to change a light bulb or iron clothes.

  It appears young people are losing the skills older generations took for granted. In fact, the problem is shared by young people in the United States. According to a report by Forbes in 2014, most millennial (千禧一代) drivers don’t know how to check their tire pressure. Cooking is another basic life skill that has been dropped, as millennials are much more likely to order food deliveries than previous generations.

  Technology may be to blame for this generational gap. Skills at using phones and computers are the ones valued these days, and the practical skills are now seen as functions that can be easily outsourced (外包). Indeed, improvements in technology have made young people unfamiliar with many basic life skills. For example, with GPS always at hand, young people have had no need to learn how to read physical maps.

  However, this change has raised concerns among many people. “If you have your master’s degree and you can’t live within your means or go home from your job and feed yourself a nutritious (有营养的) meal, you’re not a complete graduate,” Chris Moore, a professor from Brigham Young University, US, told HuffPost.

  That’s why there’s an increasing call for the return of “home ec” in the US, short for home economics, which teaches basic life skills like cooking and how to do laundry. It was very popular in the early 20th century, but was later taken out of schools and universities because of budget(预算) cuts. But recently, home ec was reintroduced in a small number of schools and universities.

  “The educational system would work better if every academic class had a practical course that applied the theory to do something regular people do in real life,” Robert Frost, instructor and flight controller at NASA, wrote on Quora, according to Huffpost.

  12. Compared with previous generations, today’s young people are ________.

  A. more capable in practical skills

  B. more capable in technological skills

  C. take changing light bulls and sewing for granted

  D. less likely to order food deliveries

  13. What is the reason for the gap between the present generation and previous ones?

  A. Today’s young people are lazy.

  B. Today’s young people are spoiled by their parents.

  C. The economic situation of the past was worse than the present one.

  D. Improvement in technology is to blame for it.

  14. What can we conclude from the last three paragraphs?

  A. The educational system would work better if practical courses are included in academic classes.

  B. The change caused by improvements of technology raised many problems among people.

  C. Home economics has returned in large scale.

  D. Home economics teaches basic home technological skills.

  15. What is the best title for the passage?

  A. The improvements of technology.

  B. Differences between the present and previous generations.

  C. Young people’s lack of basic home skills.

  D. The meaning and function of home economics.

  Color is fundamental in home design—something you’ll always have in every room. A grasp of how to manage color in your spaces is one of the first steps to creating rooms you’ll love to live in.

  Over the years, there have been a number of different techniques to help designers approach this important point. 17 , they can get a little complex.

  Medium color choices are generally furniture pieces such as sofas, dinner tables or bookshelves. 19 . They require a bigger commitment than smaller ones, and they have a more powerful effect on the feeling of a space.

  The large color decisions in your rooms concern the walls, ceilings, and floors. Whether you’re looking at wallpaper or paint, the time, effort and relative expense put into it are significant. 20 .

  A. If you’re experimenting with a color

  B. While all of them are useful

  C. Whatever you’re looking for

  E. Small color choices are the ones we’re most familiar with

  This morning, I, together with my parents, go to the second-hand book market near my home. There were so much people that we had to push their way through the crowd. Though the market was terribly noisy, but we felt quite pleasing to be able to pick up a really good bargain. Just as we were ready leave, however, a heavy rain began to pour down.
