Do you have trouble trying to create the next big idea? Sometimes the answer isn’t to just force an idea out of your mind. Instead, you might want to try sitting back, relaxing and letting your mind wander. Yes, you heard that correctly. If you are in need of a new idea, try daydreaming.
Researchers from the university of California, Santa Barbara, found an association between daydreaming and creative problem-solving. Their study includes having participants first do an “unusual-use task”. They had to try to come up with as many different ways to use an object as they could.
Then, the participants chose to do one of the following four things before doing the “unusual-use task” again: complete a difficult task; complete an easy task; take a 12-minute break; or skip the 12-minute break and move right on to the task exercise again.
Surprisingly, the group that performed best was the one that completed the easy task. Many participants reported that they were daydreaming while performing the easy task. So the researchers believed that this daydreaming might have helped unlock their creativity.
But how could daydreaming help the brain come up with creative ways? The answer is something known as “unconscious thought”. Even when you are not actively working to solve a problem, it is still in the back of your mind. Your brain is still thinking about the problem, but in a much more subtle (不易察觉的) way.
When you daydream, your mind is allowed to think in ways it normally would not. Because it is free of control, it can create completely new and out-of-the-box ideas.
Great ideas never come easily, but that does not mean you always have to work hard to get them. Feel free to do what you want and let your mind wander.
58. The “unusual-use task” in Paragraph 2 means that participants ______.
A. complete an easy task B. complete a very difficult task
C. take a 12-minute break D. think of various ways to use an object
59. Why did the participants who completed the easy task perform best?
A. They were not actively working to solve the easy task.
B. They daydreamed and it helped them be more creative.
C. They were daydreaming while performing the difficult task.
D. They skipped the 12-minute break to complete the task again.
60. What does the underlined phrase “unconscious thought” in Paragraph 5 mean?
A. Your brain wander in a subtle way within your control.
B. Your brain knows clearly what you’re thinking and doing.
C. Your brain is thinking about a problem outside of your awareness.
D. Your brain refuses to receive any information from the outside world.
61. The passage mainly wants to tell us that ______.
A. brainstorming is important to creative ideas
B. daydreaming is a way to improve creativity
C. problem-solving skills are important in our lives
D. the more we exercise brains, the more ideas we’ll get
California has become the first U.S. state to approve plans to require newly-built homes to include solar equipment.
The state’s Energy Commission voted 5-0 to approve the new rules, which are to take effect in 2020. The rules will deal with most newly-built residential (住宅的) buildings up to three stories high.
The move is California’s latest step aimed at reaching renewable energy targets and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
California has set a goal of filling half of its electricity needs with renewable energy by 2030. Officials said they had reached 30 percent by the end of 2017. The state’s Governor, Jerry Brown, plans to hold an international climate meeting in September.
①The Energy Commission said the cost of adding solar equipment to a single-family home would be about $9,500. But, the group added that homeowners would save at least $19,000 in energy costs over 30 years.
Robert Raymer is the technical director for the California Building Industry Association. He says the action is a step forward for the wider use of solar power in the U.S. “You can bet every other of the 49 states will be watching closely to see what happens,” he told the Associated Press.
②Solar companies praised the new requirements, which officials have said will likely raise demand for solar equipment in California by 10-15 percent.
The Solar Energy Industries Association called it a “historic decision for the state and the U.S.” It estimated the action would produce “huge economic and environmental benefits,” including bringing tens of billions of dollars into California.
③Some legislative and community leaders argued that Californians cannot afford to pay any more for housing in what is already an extremely high-priced market.
“That’s just going to drive the cost up and make California, once again, not affordable to live in,” said California Assemblyman Brian Dahle.
④Severin Borenstein is an energy economist at the University of California, in Berkeley. He sent an email to the head of California’s Energy Commission to urge the state to reconsider its decision.
He expressed his belief that it is a mistake for California to approve such a policy instead of centering on efforts to develop large solar farms to produce renewable energy. He said these farms would cost much less to operate.
“Every energy economist I know is shaking their head at this,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “In many ways, this is setting the wrong example,” he added.
62. According to the rules to take effect in 2020, newly-built homes are expected to ________.
A. replace large solar farms B. be equipped with solar equipment
C. have the height of three stories D. stop greenhouse gas emissions
63. From what Robert Raymer says, we can know that _______.
A. other 49 states won’t follow in the footsteps of California
B. California can achieve its goal of renewable energy by 2030
C. the action will help homeowners save money in the long term
D. the new rules will probably enjoy a great popularity in the US
64. The sentence “But some individuals and groups were against the new rules.” should be placed in
A. ① B. ② C. ③ D. ④
65. The purpose of the passage is _______.
A. to show different attitudes towards an approval
B. to express the significance of renewable energy
C. to inform a new way of dealing with climate change
D. to prove a new plan of solar equipment unreasonable
Mayor Day called me that morning, his voice full of an urgency I’d never heard before. “These Chinese big people are coming to our town and I need you to prepare something really special for them. I’m relying on you, Adrian. The whole town is. This could be just the thing to put us over the top.”
“Okay, I’m on it,” I said. I’m a caterer (酒席承办人), and for years I’ve done all the mayor’s events for Thomasville, Alabama, our little town of 4,099. He likes everything I make, but I knew exactly what he wanted this time, banana pudding, his favorite.
It’s my mama’s recipe. It was her desserts that she was known for. Mama cooked her banana pudding on the stove. Hers was thick and cream-colored, not dark yellow like the other ladies made. I remember practicing in the kitchen when I was a young girl. Mama showed me how to make banana pudding properly. “Good job, Adrian,” Mama would say. I was so proud when I finally got mine just right, the way she did.
For months Mayor Day had tried his best to persuade some Chinese businessmen who ran a copper company to build their new plant in Thomasville, but our little town didn’t have the land they needed. “We are leaning toward Houston or Lamar,” the company representative told Mayor Day. “There is nothing personal, just business.”
“Wait! What about Wilcox County?” the mayor asked. Wilcox, just east of us, was one of the poorest counties in the entire United States and had got plenty of land. There hadn’t been any kind of plant built there since the 1970s.
“But that’s not your county,” the company representative said. “Why are you lobbying (游说) for them?”
“Because if you build in Wilcox County their economy will grow and so will Thomasville’s. Besides, there’s something to be said for loving your neighbor, isn’t there?”
The representative agreed to visit Wilcox County before the final decision was made. All the top leaders would come and have lunch in Thomasville, lunch that I cooked. And for dessert, the dish the mayor hoped would sweeten the deal. Banana pudding with 300 jobs riding on it, I knew it had to be perfect, like Mama’s.
The luncheon was held at the Thomasville Civic Center. Next to each plate I’d placed a little cup of pudding. I looked on anxiously as the Chinese businessmen eyed the dessert. Were they curious or sickening? One of the men pointed at his cup and said something to the translator. I couldn’t hear his answer but the businessman still looked puzzled. He took a spoon, inserted it into the pudding, then put barely a taste to his lips. For a moment there was no reaction. Then he smiled, a grin that went from ear to ear. The rest of the businessmen started eating their pudding, one bite after another. In seconds all the cups were empty.
One of the businessmen looked toward me and said something to the translator, who waved me over to the table. “Excuse me,” he said. “Is there more? More …” he searched for the word, “… pie?” I brought out all the banana pudding. Even last cup was finished. By the time the men put down their dessert spoons they’d reached an agreement. They needed to know more about Wilcox County. There would be another meeting, another lunch.
“And we will have again the banana pie?” one of the leaders asked.
Mayor Day didn’t miss a beat. “Absolutely,” he said. “Adrian’s lunches always come with banana pie.”
And a few months later, when it was announced that the plant would be built in Wilcox County instead of Houston, everyone joked that the decision had come down to one thing. Mama’s been away for a few years now, but I like to think she’s up in heaven, looking down on that new copper plant going up in Wilcox County, and saying, “Good job, Adrian.”
66. Mayor Day asked the writer to prepare banana pudding to ______.
A. satisfy his appetite B. appeal to Chinese businessmen
C. honor her mother D. show off her cooking skills
67. The writer was a caterer who ______.
A. invented the recipe of banana pudding B. made banana pudding when she was young
C. prepared banana pudding for her mother daily D. cooked dark yellow banana pudding frequently
68. What does Mayor Day probably disagree with?
A. His neighbor town was much richer than his town.
B. No plant was built in the neighbor for many years.
C. The plant in the neighbor would benefit his town a lot.
D. His town didn’t have the land Chinese businessmen needed.
69. What can we infer from the passage?
A. The food at lunch was so delicious that all the plates were empty soon.
B. All the Chinese businessmen tasted the pudding with a spoon together.
C. The Chinese businessmen asked for more pudding with fluent English.
D. The perfect banana pudding took effect and finally sweetened the deal.
70. What would be the best title for the passage?

WeChat is a part of our daily life. We can chat with friends, share our photos on Moments and kill time by reading WeChat public accounts. And now, we can even gain new knowledge in WeChat study groups. Some teachers assign (布置) homework on WeChat groups or through other learning software. Song Xueying, a 16-year-old girl from Zhejiang province thinks that online homework makes our life more convenient because students are able to hand in their homework any time and anywhere. Hao Xiangjie, Song’s classmate argues that online homework can do harm to students. This is because they are too young to get rid of the temptation (诱惑) of the Internet.

Nowadays, some teachers take advantage of Wechat group, which is gaining more and more popularity, to assign homework. However, opinions on it vary. Some are for it, while others against.
From my perspective, I strongly disapprove of this idea. First, it’s easy for students to cheat when they do their homework assigned through Wechat group. They can search for answers on the Internet any time, which takes away the point of being given homework. Second, They can play computer games in the name of doing homework, which may have a bad effect on their studies. Last but not least, online homework isn’t the same as working through a problem using your brain, which is how most tests are performed.
In conclusion, while Wechat can bring much convenience to our life and study, I do think that assigning homework through Wechat group isn’t a good choice.
