I’m speeding through a questionnaire until I hit this question:”What strongly influenced you as a young child?” Is it too strange to say that it was the place mats（餐垫）at my childhood breakfast table?
The place mats included colorful drawings of many European cities, which dad was happy to talk about. But the one of Paris always drew extra attention. “That’s the most wonderful city in the world,” he would tell me. “The language they speak there is just like music. But in each of these cities, they all speak a different but beautiful language.” I would say almost every morning, “I want to go to these cities. Can I?” And he always gave me the same answer: “Absolutely. You can and you will.”
Dad was a great lover of Broadway musicals. He often drew me to the table with songs from them. I loved them and couldn’t wait to be a grown-up so I could go to the theater. “Will I be able to see all these shows someday?” I would ask. And dad would answer: “Of course. You can and you will.” Talking about Broadway shows often brought us to another of my dad’s great love: New York. He would list the wonderful things to do in New York. When I asked my usual question, he changed the subject for his answer. “Of course we can and we will.” And we did.
It’s been decades since I could enjoy a meal with my dad. But the impressions of our breakfast together can be seen all over my résumé（简历）. I spent two years of graduate school in Europe. I lived in New York for 20 years. And to this day there’s never a month in which I don’t go to the theater.
So back to the questionnaire: “What strongly influenced you as a young child?” “Breakfast with my dad,” I write. “Why?” “Because he told me that I could and I would. And so I did.”
24. The author thinks his answer “the place mats” may sound ______ to others.
A. unusual B. disappointing C. casual D. unacceptable
25. What often attracted the author to the table as a young child?
A. The scenery on the mats. B. The songs from musicals.
C. The languages his dad spoke. D. The stories about New York.
26. What does the author’s résumé show?
A. He is successful in his career. B. He misses his dad very much.
C. His life is beyond expectation. D. His dad has greatly influenced him.
27. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. Like Father, Like Son B. A Question that Changed My Life
C. Breakfasts that Encouraged My Dreams D. An Unforgettable Childhood Experience
The keys to reaching or staying at a healthy weight are regular exercise and good eating habits. Some people think exercise and good eating require lots off effort or planning. But that’s not true. In fact, the best way to work them into our lives is by making small changes that gradually become part of our routine.
We’ve all succeeded in making changes that are now deeply rooted in our lifestyles—learning to brush our teeth, for example. Here’s the information you need to make these other healthy habits just as easy.
Teens should get 60 minutes or more of physical activity a day. Note the word “activity”: As long as you’re getting your body moving, it doesn’t have to mean doing complex exercises or hitting the gym every day. All that matters is that each week you get the right balance of activities, including aerobics（有氧运动）, strength building, and flexibility exercise. Make exercise a habit by scheduling some every day.
On days when you have soccer practice or an aerobics class, you may have no trouble exercising for an hour or more. But most of us are busy, and 60 minutes a day of activity seems like a lot of time. The good news is that it’s OK to divide it into shorter “exercise breaks” throughout the day.
Just as you might have a healthy snack to stop yourself getting hungry, exercise snacks can keep energy levels high. So get up 15 minutes early and so dome yoga or other stretching（伸展）activity. Fast walk or jog for 15 minutes at lunch. Do the same thing after school—or walk or bike home. Add to that taking the stairs, gym class, and walking between classes during the day, and you’ve probably reached your 60 minutes.
28. What does the author want to prove by mentioning brushing teeth?
A. Lifestyles are hard to change. B. Forming healthy habits is easy.
C. Teeth are important for our health. D. Small changes make a big difference.
29. What are teens advised to do to develop exercise habits?
A. Do complex exercises. B. Go to the gym every day.
C. Balance the weekly activities. D. Schedule all activities every day.
30. How can teens achieve the exercise goal with a busy schedule?
A. Have some soccer practice.
B. Exercise 60 minutes each time.
C. Shorten your daily exercise time.
D. Break the exercise time into parts.
31. What does the underlined phrase “exercise snacks” in the last paragraph refer to?
A. Healthy food. B. Short exercise breaks.
C. Gym classes. D. The one-hour exercise.
While most consumers wish to reduce plastic waste, it’s not an easy goal to achieve. That’s because the cheap and long-lived material is found in almost every daily necessity. Now, an Indonesian-based company has come up with a delicious solution.
David Christian, the co-founder of Evoware, says after investigating various materials, the company settled on seaweed. Unlike corn, commonly used for containers, seaweed does not require water, fertilizers, or large amounts of space. According to Evoware, as much as 40 tons of seaweed can be grown in an area the size of a baseball field. Since Indonesian farmers harvest more seaweed than they can sell, it’s easy to find the material.
The seaweed packaging is safe to consume and can entirely dissolve（溶解）in hot water. While the eatable wrappers（包装纸）may not have any taste, Dubbed Ello Jello, the single-use cups invented by Evoware, are available in four tastes—orange, lychee, peppermint, and green tea. The best part? You can order the powder and make them at home! Though currently they cannot stand hot liquids, Evoware is working on making heat-resistant（耐热的）cups as well.
While the seaweed products seem like a perfect replacement, it’s a hard-sell in Indonesia. According to Christian, “The awareness and sense of urgency to minimize the use of single-use plastic is still very low. This makes our bioplastic seem unnecessary.” Also a factor is the cost, which is higher than using plastic. However, Evoware believes they can reduce the price once the company moves to mass production. Hopefully, Evoware will succeed in convincing people worldwide that switching to their products will go a long way in protecting our beautiful planet.
32. How does seaweed differ from corn?
A. It sells better. B. It’s less expensive.
C. It takes less labor to process. D. It needs less resources to grow.
33. What nature do seaweed wrappers have?
A. They melt in cold water. B. They are easy to break down.
C. They can be made at home. D. They come in several tastes.
34. What does the underlined word “they” in Paragraph 3 refer to?
A. Evoware’s current cups B. Plastic containers
C. Heat-resistant cups. D. Eatable packaging.
35. What can we infer from Christian’s words in the last paragraph?
A. The price of plastics will go down.
B. Indonesians care little about the planet.
C. It takes much effort to promote the new product.
D. The seaweed products need much improvement.
How to find a hobby
Hobbies let you explore interests outside of your line of work. They let you creative and try all kinds of new things. To pick a new hobby, read the following tips.
Examine your skills and personality（性格）. Certain hobbies require certain skill sets. If you don’t have much of patience, then maybe hand sewing isn’t something you’d enjoy. However, if you love building things, maybe you should consider a hobby like building furniture. 36
Look at what interests you. 37 Do you enjoy reading books? Maybe you want to try your hand at writing them. Do you like a cold juice at the end of the day? Maybe your hobby could be trying to make it at home. Turn what you already love into a hobby.
38 The first one try might not be the right fit. Don’t be afraid to move on and try something else. You have a right to decide when you’re not interested in something.
Say “yes”. That is, don’t be afraid to say “yes” to activities you normally bow out of. Maybe going to the art museum doesn’t sound very exciting to you, but when your friend invites you to go, give it a try anyway. 39
Improve your self-knowledge. One thing that may be preventing you trying new things is your thinking. Maybe you think you’re not brave enough for certain activities. 40 For instance, maybe you’ve always wanted to learn the guitar but didn’t think you had the talent. Sign up for a class anyway.
A. These are very natural things.
B. Anyway, play to your strengths.
C. Check out the wide variety of choices.
D. Be willing to try more than one hobby.
E. Examine what takes up your spare time.
F. Don’t be afraid to step outside those boundaries.
G. You might find a hobby you never expected to enjoy.

One possible version:
I have just arrived home and can’t wait to write you a letter. I am hoping to show my sincere appreciation for your kind help during my stay in America.
It is with your help that I have a better knowledge of the life and study of the students here. What impressed me most is your beautiful campus and the friendly students. What’s more, you have helped me improve my spoken English a lot. I don’t think I was as confident as I am now when talking with others in English. It’s all because of your generous help.
I really hope you can come to China so that I can do something for you in return. You are warmly welcome.
