Mary had a yellow dress
Bought from the department store.
It looked as beautiful as the moon,
And as bright as the sun.
Mary wore all the time
The yellow dress I felt so right.
Every day from day to night
I saw her in the dress so bright.
“Buy me a yellow dress,”
I cried to Mom and Dad,
“As beautiful and bright
As the dress the girl living near has!”
I cried and cried and cried,
Until they said with sad eyes,
“We need food for your baby sister,
And clothes for your coming brother.”
Since then I’ve learned
Mary’s yellow dress
Is better to dream of
Than to ask for.
( ) 44. From the poem, we know that Mary and the writer may be ____________.
A. classmates B. relatives C. neighbours D. sisters
( ) 45. Why does the writer say, “Every day from day to night / I saw her in the dress so bright”?

( ) 46. What did the writer’s parents mean by their words?

It is believed in some ways that the daughter is father’s lover. But my experience has taught me in a different way. For a long time, my father has been a very vague (模糊的) figure to me. He was a man of few words, tall but slim and nothing else.
When I was in primary school, my father was never there to pick me up, and he never came to any of my parent-teacher meetings. He was always busy doing projects. I remember when I was in middle school and my head was badly hurt in a PE class. During my operation, my father was still busy with his work. This hurt me most. At that moment, I thought my father as a cold-blooded man who did not care about me at all.
But things seemed different. I would give a speech at my high school graduation ceremony (毕业典礼). My father, once again, couldn’t attend it because he had a business trip in a place outside the city. “Don’t come. I will be nervous if I see you.” I told him.
I remember my speech was a success. After the ceremony, I was about to leave, I suddenly noticed a man sitting in a corne r of the hall. It was my father! I was so surprised that I rushed to him with tears running down my face. “Well done.” he said. His eyes were also filled with tears.
Later, I knew that my father had managed to finish his work by staying up late, and he drove for eight hours to get back. He sat in the corner because he didn’t want me to see him. My father remembered every word in my speech.
For much of my life, I described my father was a cold-blooded man who only cared about his work. But when I thought deeply about this, it was clearly not true. At my graduation ceremony I could feel my father’s deep love. The fact is that seeing is not believing, and seeing may not be the fact if we don’t perceive (感知) the world with our hearts and minds. Life is full of love, but sometimes our eyes have trouble seeing it.
( ) 47. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. The writer’s father was in the hospital during her operation.
B. The writer’s father attended her high school graduation ceremony.
C. The writer’s father sometimes picked her up when she was in primary school.
D. The writer’s father went to parent-teacher meetings when she was in primary school.
( ) 48. The writer rushed to her father with tears running down her face because _________.
A. she gave a speech successfully
B. the graduation ceremony was over
C. she was so nervous that she couldn't help crying
D. she was touched to find her father cared about her
( ) 49. What does the underlined word “this” in the last paragraph refer to (指代) ?
A. That my father was always doin g projects.
B. That my father was a cold-blooded man.
C. That my father sat in the corner of the hall.
D. That my father’s eyes were filled with tears.
( ) 50. What’s the best title of the passage?
A. My busy father B. Life is full of love
C. Seeing is not believing D. A wonderful speech

What do you do in a situation like this? You’re having dinner with friends at a nice restaurant. You’re having a great time when a phone rings at the table next to you. A man takes out his phone and starts talking loudly about problems he’s having with his girlfriend. He talks for almost ten minutes! This happens all the time－on buses, in restaurants, everywhere!
Many people find cell phones useful in their daily lives. But we’ve all sat next to someone talking too loudly on a cell phone. You may want to tell the loudmouth to end the conversation, but let the management take care of those noisy customers. You can only control your own behavior. Here are a few rules:
Off means off! Follow the rules of restaurants and other public places. If a sign says “turn off cell phones”, don’t use your phone. If you are allowed, speak softly for a short time and try to move away from other people.
Lights off, phone off! Never make calls in a theater or at the movies.
Pay attention! Talking on a cell phone while driving is dangerous. And watch where you’re going when you’re walking down the streets and talking on the phone.
As more people use cell phones, things are only going to get worse. So, the next time you’re getting ready to make a call, stop and consider the people around you.
86. How many rules are mentioned in the passage to control our behavior?
87. What should we do if we’re allowed to use cell phones in public places?
88. Where shouldn’t we make calls according to the passage?
89. When should we watch where we’re going?
90. What other situation do you think we shouldn’t make calls?
学习 不努力，玩电脑游戏 学习刻苦，多阅读
礼仪 没礼貌，乱扔垃圾 行为得体，保护环境
