Edison Park Community（社区）Church stood for 87 years in northwest Chicago before it was pulled down in2016. Churches come and go, but what makes the passing of the church impressive is the beautiful way its members chose to go out.
Edison Park Community had 300 active members in the 1960s. But by the time the most recent minister（牧师）, Rev. Katherine Karch took over, 12 years ago, membership had shrunk unexpectedly. By last year, Edison Park Community was home to only 30 m3mbers. “We couldn’t pay the bills anymore.” Karch says. The church’s members had little choice but to sell their brick building. A developer paid $740,000 for the property（财产）and planned to tear down the church to make room for single-family homes.
Yet the sale of the property created a major change. Edison Park Community is part of the United Church of Christ, in which each church is owned by its members. That means the church belonged to its members. They had the right to deal with the earnings from the sale as they wished.
Yet almost a century of baptisms（洗礼）and Sunday socials had laid down strong community roots. Karch says there was only one idea considered from the start. “What they have chosen to do is donate（捐赠）that money to charities.” she says.
Their first check, for $100,000, went to the Greater Chicago Food and provided more than 300,000 meals for the hungry. Other beneficiaries（受益者）include United Church of Christ’s disaster-relief efforts, and a no-kill animal shelter. Let these extraordinary stories of generosity inspire you to give back to your community.
24. When did Edison Park Community Church begin to stand?
A. In 1929. B. In 1960. C. In 1987. D. In 2004.
25. What does the underlined word in paragraph 2 “shrunk” probably refer to?

26. What did the church members do after the sale of the church?
A. They rebuilt another church. B. They equally shared the money.
C. They gave away the earnings. D. They created different ideas.
27. What effect will the story have on people?

My first week in the United States was a cultural shock. Everything felt new to me, including the style of conversation, the community I lived in and even the type of food people ate.
In our community back home, people eat mutton and chicken. Pork and beef are also common among other communities, but eating beef is taken as an illegal act. Unlike Nepal, eating beef is common in the West where most of the people follow religions other than Hinduism.
Food is just an example. When people move from one part of the world to another, they should adapt（适应）themselves to the new culture. For example, going to the bars or getting drunk is not acceptable in my community, but it is common in the US after a certain age.
I was raised in a traditional Hindu family in Nepal. We have a conservative（保守的，谨慎的）opinion towards marriage. Arranged marriages（包办婚姻）are common in which families decide whether the two should get married. Free love marriages are not allowed and are seldom seen. Same-sex marriage is also considered impossible.
To me, culture is a matter of habit. The culture is so deep-rooted in people’s minds that most people are against changes. It is always easy for them to do what they have been doing throughout their life. It may be difficult for anyone to adapt to a new culture.
However, with travel being an unavoidable thing for modern people, one always comes across different cultures. In such cases, one should be respectful and adaptive to the culture other people follow. The world is always a better place to live in when we have spaces for people of all cultures.
28. What does the Nepal law forbid people to eat?
A. Pork. B. Beef. C. Chicken. D. Mutton.
29. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Most westerners believe in Hinduism. B. Getting drunk in Nepal is acceptable.
C. Anyone can enter the bars in the US. D. The writer came across a cultural shock.
30. Which may be seen most in Nepal?
A. Open marriages. B. Free love marriages.
C. Same-sex marriage. D. Arranged marriages.
31. What is the writer’s attitude to different cultures?
A. Negative. B. Respectful. C. Conservative. D. Indifferent.
If all the food that’s thrown away in three American cities could be saved, it would provide 68 million meals for people who don’t have enough to eat, according to a recent study.
The researchers found that, in the cities they surveyed（调查）, more than a kilogram of edible food per person is wasted each week. Edible food is food you can eat. It doesn’t include things like apple cores（果核）, egg shells, or bones from meat. Fruits and vegetables were the most common edible foods found in the dustbin, followed by food leftover from meals. Eggs, bread and milk were also commonly thrown out.
The people taking part in the survey gave several reasons for throwing edible food away. Most said the food went off. Some said they weren’t interested in eating leftovers. A few said the food had passed the “Best Before” date printed on the label（标签）. When food is wasted—by families, restaurants or grocery stores—we are also wasting all of the resources that go into producing that food. That means we are wasting water, land, energy and labour, as well as the fuel needed to transport food.
A lot of food is wasted before it even reaches the grocery store（食品杂货商）. Some food is damaged while it is being transported from the farm to the stores. Fruits and vegetables that don’t look attractive enough don’t even get put onto the shelves because most people won’t buy them. Grocery stores, restaurants and hospitals also waste a large amount of food. The researchers suggest that grocery stores should donate any food that is still okay to eat to homeless shelters, instead of throwing it away. Prepared meals from hospitals or restaurants could also be donated to shelters.
32. What do we know about edible food from the second paragraph?
A. Fruits are the most common. B. Some has been wasted.
C. It weighs over a kilogram. D. Bone is also edible food.
33. What is the major reason why the edible food is thrown away?
A. It has gone bad. B. People prefer other food.
C. It is not their favorite. D. The date hasn’t been printed.
34. What do the researchers advise grocery stores to do?
A. Help people in need. B. Beautify any food.
C. Discount fine food. D. Throw away outdated food.
35. Which of the following is probably the best title of the passage?
A. How Much Food do You Buy? B. How Much Food do You Eat?
C. How Much Food do You Waste? D. How Much Food do You Need?

One of my happier days was hearing that I was admitted into a medical school. It has been a dream of me for as long as I can remember. My father played big role in my desire to become a physician. See him live a life of services to others inspired me from a young age. Watching him to put on his white coat with the stethoscope（听诊器）around his neck was liked looking at a superhero. Hearing him share stories of how medical care saved patients’ lives was enjoyable. As for me, medicine were the perfect mixture of wonder and science, that deeply attracted me.
