The end of the year is drawing near，and winter is in full swing. The Season brings along with it strong winds and snow-an environment that’s never comfortable to be in.
This unpleasant and even frightening aspect of winter can often be seen in literature．In Shakespeare’s King Lear(1606)，the king has given away his kingdom and been rejected by his two ungrateful daughters．He is out in the winter cold，suffering things that are usually reserved for the poorest and most unfortunate human beings．
The winter is bad enough for Lear，but being abandoned by his family is worse．A song from another Shakespeare play，As You Like It(1599)，is fitting for this poor old man’s situation：“Blow，blow，thou winter wind，/Thou art not so unkind／As man’s ingratitude(忘恩负义)”．Here，winter is used to bring out the ugliness of inhumanity(不人道)．There aren’t many things that are worse than winter，according to Shakespeare．
Once winter became less of a threat to human beings，literary works featuring it became more positive．Since Charles Dickens，the representation of the season in literature has often featured happy Christmas celebrations．
The cold of the winter weather provides a contrast to the fun going on indoors．
Dickens’A Christmas Carol(1843)was the start of this，but Christmas is still a common，cheery element(元素) in stories that feature winter scenes today．Consider the joy felt by Harry Potter and his friends in J．K．Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone(1997)as they sit down for their festive meal：
“Harry had never in all his life had such a Christmas dinner．A hundred fat，roast turkeys；mountains of roast and boiled potatoes；platters of chipolatas；tureens of buttered peas，silver boats of thick，rich gravy and cranberry sauce”．
It is almost as much a pleasure to read about the meal as it might have been to eat it．
Although winter still isn’t the most cheerful season in novels and poems，it’s safe to say that writers have certainly“warmed up”since Shakespeare's days．
25．What’s the author’s main purpose in writing this article?
A．To recommend some winter stories in literature．
B．To explain what winter is like in literary works．
C．To describe certain customs that are related to winter．
D．To tell us why winter is described as unpleasant in literature．
26．What can we learn from Shakespeare’s works?
A．Shakespeare didn’t like winter for its bad weather．
B．King Lear dies of cold one night during winter．
C．Winter is a time to think about our family members．
D．Winter is compared with the ugly side of humanity．
27．The author mentions Charles Dickens in the article because___________．
A．a lot of his works are relevant to winter
B．he is the most popular author of winter’stories
C．he started a new way of representing winter
D．his works make people feel cheerful in winter
28．The example of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is used mainly to show_______.
A．traditional Christmas food makes the winter cheery
B．Christmas is still a symbol of joy in modern stories
C．it’s a pleasure to read Christmas-related books in winter
D．winter has become the happiest season in literary works
The human beings seem to be facing a crisis(危机)．After Our best Go players were defeated one by one by the artificial intelligence(AI)AlphaGo，we lost our pride of being at the top of the intelligence chain. And in October，when Saudi Arabia gave citizenship to a robot named Sophia，another privilege of being human was take away．It looks like everything that separates humans and AI is at risk fight now．
But we keep hoping that instead of“everything ”，there’s still something left in us that makes us irreplaceable.
To Hao Jingfang，winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Novelette，that“something”is our consciousness.“AlphaGo is intelligent in a certain way，but not intelligent enough to ask the important questions – Do I like playing Co? Do I want to play Go today? Why do I have to play Go when you tell me to?”she once said．In other words，computer programs don’t have a choice to say“no”．They probably don’t even know what a“choice”is – all they ever do is calculate．
And to He Huaihong，a philosophy(哲学)professor at Peking University，imagination and creativity are also what make us special. A machine couldn’t have come up with the theory of gravity just because it was hit by a falling apple，he said．It’s human imagination that connects what seem to be completely random and irrelevant concepts，something that a machine—which works by fixed rules only—can't do，at least for now．
This is why BBC reporter Viktor Mayer-Schonberger suggested that instead of focusing on how computers have overshadowed us on calculating abilities than humans，we should probably“consider our quality at a different end of the spectrum(光谱)：creativity，originality(原创性)，even plain illogical craziness，instead of hard-nosed(顽固的)logic”，he wrote．
So maybe in the future，as artificial intelligence becomes even more intelligent，humans and A1 will learn to use each other’s talents for good．If AI can handle the boring tasks like calculating and driving for us，we’11 have more time to create，think，and be busy with“being human”．
29．What can we learn about AlphaGo，according to Hao Jingfang?
A．It will be taught to say no in the future．
B．It will be more intelligent than humans one day．
C．It has difficulty answering personal questions．
D．It is unable to think independently as humans do．
30．What does He Huaihong believe is unique to humans?
C．The ability to make rules． D．The ability to make choices．
31．What does the underlined word“overshadowed”in paragraph 5 probably mean?
A．Competed with B．Taken control of
C．Been more successful than D．Influenced
32．What could be the future of AI according to the author?
A．It will be used to help humans，rather than compete with us．
B．It may develop creativity besides better logical thinking．
C．It might be very dangerous to humans in different fields．
D．It’will be applied to provide driving service for humans．
Jan 20 is a special day，the International Day of Acceptance to call attention to the lives of inspirational of different ethnic(种族的)and cultural backgrounds who fight to be accepted. The disabled woman who founded the day，Annie Hopkins，was herself an inspiration. Hopkins aimed to encourage the acceptance of people from communities that are different．
But the world is full of people like Hopkins，as the following stories show．
Fatjona，an Albanian girl，had a terrible accident which left her unable to walk，speak or write. She was in a wheel chair，which was difficult，but even more difficult because her school wasn’t built for people with disabilities．
But within four years，Fatjona had recovered her spirits enough to think about her old dream again—to be a dancer．Although it was very difficult，her doctor told her that it would be possible that she could walk again．And if she can walk，she can dance．
Sometimes，adults have more difficulty with“race”than children do，as the following story from Kansas in the US shows. The children were all orphans(孤儿)，black and white，boys and girls．But they got along well．Their problem was that they couldn’t be together enough.They feared that they would one day have to leave Kansas and would never see each other again．
Their solution was to become one big，happy family together．However，they needed two permanent foster parents，so the children put all ad in the Kansas City Star：“Wanted：parents for five mixed ethnicity children．”There was an enormous response to the ad．Fostering agencies had no trouble putting the group of kids together in single home，with a single set of parents．Now they have what they always wanted，a“forever home”．
In our world of strife and prejudice，Fatjona，the Kansas kids and Hopkins herself all have a lot to teach us．
33．Why did Annie Hopkins found the International Day of Acceptance?
A．To inspire herself to fight to be accepted．
B．To help people with disabilities fit into society．
C．To finish the task required by the United Nations．
D．To encourage the acceptance of people with various backgrounds．
34．What can we learn about Fatjona according to the article?
A．She was unable to wall speak or write because of a severe accident．
B．Her school had no difficulty in providing convenience for people like her．
C．She gave up her dream of becoming a dancer after four years of recovery．
D．Her doctor thought that it would be impossible for her to walk again.
35．What is the Kansas kids’story about?
A．A“forever home”means a lot to orphans．
B．Children have more“race”problems than adults do．
C．The mixed ethnic children were finally accepted by a family．
D．It's difficult to find a foster family for orphans in Kansas．
A beginner skier or snowboarder trying to read a snow report for the first time might become confused．Words like“com”and“hard pack”seem more suited for a produce stand than the ski slopes(滑雪斜坡)．An entire lexicon(词典)exists for reporting mountain conditions at ski resorts(度假地)． 36
What most skiers want to know is how much snow，if any，has fallen overnight，and which runs(滑道)have been groomed．The snow report provides this info．Groomed runs are ones that have been，uniformly conditioned，by snow-tracking machines． 37 That’s because non-groomed runs may contain icy patches or powder that's more difficult to turn in．
The “base”in a snow report gives an average depth of how many inches of snow the resort has over its skiable terrain(地形)，as opposed to fresh-fallen snow．“Com”means wet，granular snow(粒状雪)，a condition usually occurring in spring and easy for beginners to navigate．“Hard pack”is the opposite of corn，almost like skiing down an ice cube. 39
Conditions at the bottom of a mountain are often different than those at the top．Chalkboarrds positioned at the base of lifts at many resorts report these differing conditions．The runs may be“frozen granular”at the summit but“wet granular”near the base． 40 Variable conditions are common at any ski resort，so always check before settling into the chairlift．
B．A Few Important Words
C．It is a snow condition that should be avoided by beginners．
D．It may be blowing snow up top，but clear and sunny at the bottom．
E．Beginners will want to avoid non-groomed runs and stick to the groomed slopes．
F．The risk of injury can be reduced by wearing the proper equipment，taking lessons if you are a beginner and using common sense．
G．Learning some basic terminology(基本术语)will help ensure a more enjoyable day on the slopes for those just starting out．
My father was born in a small town in the US．But he wanted to get out and begin a new 41 ．He began that adventure 42 to cities in the US，before going on to foreign countries．He took his 43 and three daughters with him and went wherever the road 44 him．
It's easy to feel 45 when you’re on the road．We often spent hours in repair shops，but that was way better than 46 by the roadside while waiting for the engine to 47 when it was 40℃ outside．
Getting along sometimes seemed 48 ．There were always a lot of 49 ，but even if it was hard，we did learn a lot about 50．
One day when we were traveling，my mother found she had 51 to take the suitcase as we arrived at the destination．That was how a seven—hour car trip 52 a 16-hour car trip，which was mostly spent 53 ．
On occasions like that，we had to learn to 54 our anger because we were 55 in a rolling box with the same people for the rest of the journey．
This is why road trips were like 56 universities to us．We 57 our PhDs in how to get along with other people just by traveling in that 58 car．
And if we were 59 given a second chance at life，we would do it all over again.Only this time，I'd put the 60 in the car myself．

What the drawing 61 (vivid)describes is that a pupil tells his mother he does not need 62 (go)to school since his phone has already known everything．This picture illustrates that many students are highly dependent on their phones， 63 (overlook)the importance of personal studies．However，as far as I am concerned，the phones play 64 important but not indispensable role in students’education．
There is no denying the fact 65 mobile phones have brought much convenience，but we are not 66 (suppose)to rely on them too much in the process of study．In the first place，we should have a good command of knowledge on our own to cope with 67 (vary)situations without phones at hand．In the second place，it is our personal knowledge that 68 (promote)the development of phones．Without the basic education at school，the phones can’t appear in our life．
All in all，over-dependence on phones does more harm than good．Therefore，We should properly balance the 69 (relate)between phones and studies．Only 70 this means can we benefit most from our learning process.
I’d 1ike to invite you join us for a visit to the nearby nursing home last Sunday for the Double Ninth Festival．It is the day for an elderly in our culture．We’11 go and make dumpling and cakes with the elderly people there．We’11 also spend some fun time together singing，dancing and play games，which we hope will make them happily．We should be come back around 3o’clock in the afternoon．If you can come with them，please let us know or we’11 wait for you at the gate at 8 in the morning．
I'm look forward to your reply．

W: I’m gonna throw out this ugly dress! I don’t even remember why I bought it in the first place!
M: Well, it’s such a beautiful material. Just get it to a tailor. A few changes will make it lovely.
M: Father’s sixtieth birthday is coming.
W: How should we celebrate it for him?
M: I plan to take the whole family for a big meal in a fancy restaurant. I’ll also invite some relatives.
W: Guess what happened to me last night.
M: What was it?
W: My phone rang when I was sound asleep. It was my friend Mary. Her car couldn’t start when she passed my house. So I invited her to spend the night.
W: Do you want to watch a movie tonight?
M: No, I want to spend the night at grandma’s.
W: If you go, I’ll go with you. I miss her so much.
M: Then let’s go over to her place after Mom comes back.
M: Before we begin today’s lecture, I want to invite Dr. Kathleen White to talk about the plan for the afternoon.
W: Prof. Brookings, I just talked to Dr. White. She said she will be a little late today because she got stuck in traffic.
M: Oh, thank you, Dr. Mildens. In that case, I’ll begin the lecture now, and Dr. White can tell us about the afternoon later on.
M: Did you and your brother have a good time at the Media Camp?
W: Yes, it was great. He went for film-making and I chose poster design.
M: What made you decide to go there? Did your brother talk you into it(说服)?
W: Actually I persuaded him. I read about it in a magazine. I knew he’d be interested because he wants to work in the movie industry. I don’t, but I was getting a bit fed up with（对……厌倦）always spending the summer doing the same old things, so I applied as soon as I heard about it.
M: Hey, Julia. You look unhappy. What’s the matter?
W: Oh hi, James. I really want to be in my friend’s band, but they say I can’t sing.
M: Well, you’ve got a great new electric guitar, haven’t you?
W: Yes, but they don’t need another guitar player.
M: You see, I play in a band. Perhaps you could play with us. I’ll ask the others.
W: Really? Who’s in your band?
M: There’s Pete and Danny. They’re brothers. And then there’s Joe—the pianist, you know, the tall American boy. We need a girl in the band. Let me ask them.
W: OK. We can practice in my garage.
M: Next month all the people in our class have to spend a week going to work instead of going to school. I wondered if I could come to work with you.
W: But you don’t want to be a lawyer. You’ve always said you want to do something different from your dad and me. Let’s think of somewhere else you could go, like a hospital.
M: But I might want to be a lawyer.
W: What are all your friends going to do during this special week?
M: Most of them want to work with children in a primary school for a week. I really want to know what a lawyer is really like and what you really do.
W: Well, I’m not happy about it. But if it’s what you really want and you promise not to be upset if you’re bored, I’ll do it.
M: OK, I promise.
W: Chris, I would like to know, what kind of food you eat in Belgium.
M: We have our fish, our meat, our wines, our fruit…
W: I mean what is popular about Belgian food?
M: Well, it’s a bit different in Belgium as I think it is here in New York. We really enjoy the tables. We don’t go out for dinner that often but when we go out we stay at a table for three or four hours. It starts with appetizers, then it may be a soup, then it’s the main dish, then it’s still an ice-cream or something.
W: It takes so much time to have dinner in your country!
M: Yeah. We really enjoy eating and it goes slow. Last winter, a friend from Portugal went to Belgium with me. For Christmas dinner, we met at 5:30 and then we started with some drinks. I think we ate from 6 o’clock in the afternoon till 12 o’clock that night.
W: Wow! You must be fat there if you eat that much.
M: In fact we don’t. We don’t do it that often, but if we do, then of course the next day or the next few days you see people just don’t eat much.
W: And now for our Mystery Person of the week and your chance to win one of our amazing prizes. Last week’s competition produced a huge response and the first five answers pulled out of the box received$100 worth of sports bags. And if you didn’t win last week, here’s another chance.
