The Fruit Is Sweet
My mother liked to fill our house with plants. She treasured her little
garden and the lives she created with tiny seeds (种子 ). I remember the
happiness on her face when she showed me what had grown.
One day in high school, I passed through a gardening store, hoping to
find something that I could use for my art piece. I had no luck finding one,
so I decided to take bags of 30 seeds home instead. I had never
planted anything in my life.
For some reason, these colorful seed packets attracted me. I 31_ many bags: roses, morning glories, lilies and even some moonflowers.
When I got home, my mother told me seriously that, if I was going to plant these flowers, it would have to be on my own. Not discouraged, I planted the different seeds in different pots. Every day,1 32 them, hoping that the next day a little green head would spurt (冒出 ) to say "hello." But each day, I became 33 when I saw that my flowers hadn't grown. After about a week, when I was ready to give up on them, my mom said to me, "You need patience (耐心 )."
I did wait. One sunny afternoon, I came home from school. Walking up to the house, I took a quick look at the pots, really not 34 to see that anything had grown. To my surprise, there was a long green stem (茎) in one of the planted pots. A big 35 lit up my face. The morning glory vine suddenly spurted while I was at school.
In the past few years, I've learned that mothers are usually 36 . My mother taught me well, even though she really didn't have to use much effort. I learn to treasure those little lives that I create. She taught me to 37 . I believe that patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.

Riley read so many stories about pirates (海盗 ) and treasure chests that he
wanted to find a treasure chest of his own. One day, Riley went to the library
and read a story about a man that buried (i~) expensive gold coins in his
backyard in a chest. Riley was so interested in the story. "Mom, tell him that
treasure chests are only in books and movies," said his old brother Ted. "It
could really happen," said Riley. "Riley's right," said mom. "If you believe in
something strong enough, it could happen."
That night Riley's mom told Riley's dad how much Riley wanted to find a treasure chest. "I have an idea," said Riley's mom. "Saturday is Riley's birthday. Let's put his gift in a treasure chest and bury it in the yard for him to find." "That's a great idea!" said Riley's dad. They decided to put his new watch in the treasure chest. They would give him a map with clues (线索 ) to look for the treasure chest outside.
After Riley left for school the next day, his mom wrapped the watch and went to the party store to buy a treasure chest. She came home and buried the treasure chest underneath the oak tree. She then drew a map with clues to where the treasure chest was buried. When Saturday came, mom and dad gave Riley his map, and told him that he would have to find his gift in the treasure chest using the clues on the map. Riley was so excited!

Okay to Eat?
At least 50% of U.S. adults have eaten food off the floor. That's according to a
2017 Harris Poll. Many people use the five-second rule. The rule says that fallen
food is safe to eat if it has been on the floor for less than five seconds. Can people
really use the five-second rule to save a dropped sandwich? Or should they throw it
and make a fresh one?
Donald Schaffner is a professor of food science. His study shows that the five-second rule should not always be used. In his 2016 report, he says it's not wise to eat dropped wet food. The wet food takes in bacteria (细菌 ) as soon as it falls. "Bacteria don't have legs, they move with the moisture," Schaffner says. The wetter the food is, the more bacteria it soaks up (吸收 ) .
Anthony Hilton studied the five-second rule too. He is a professor of Life and Health Sciences.
Hilton found that a dry food on the floor collects fewer bacteria than a wet food. Hilton also found that carpeted floors pass fewer bacteria than wood floors. Still, one should be careful. "Food that is on the or is never completely risk-free to eat," he says. "But if you drop a dry food in your house, it's usually okay if you pick it up very quickly. Most clean homes don't have bad bacteria."
Should you eat food that was dropped on the kitchen counter? Dr. Steven Dowshen is a doctor for children. He says that floors are not the only place that can make food unsafe to eat. "Kitchen counters can contain more harmful bacteria," Dowshen told TFK. This is because raw foods sometimes have bad bacteria called salmonella. These raw foods can be on kitchen counters. "If people eat food off a surface Lt has salmonella, they can get very sick," says Dowshen.
With the five-second rule, the type of food and the place where it falls matter. So perhaps use this e instead: When in doubt, throw it out.
45. What's Donald Schaffner's opinion about the five-second rule?
A. The five-second rule should always be used.
B. The drier the food is, the more bacteria it takes in.
C. It's a good choice to eat the dropped wet food.
D. The minute the wet food falls, it soaks up bacteria.
46. The underlined word "risk-free" probably means “ ”
A. delicious B. dangerous C. safe D. easy
47.What can you infer from the passage?
A. People should not eat a dropped sandwich on any places.
B. People cannot eat food that is on the floor because of salmonella.
C. People need to consider the type of the dropped food before eating.
D. People should be careful about the food dropped on the kitchen counter.
48. What's the writer's purpose of writing the passage?
A. To introduce the five-second rule to people.
B. To encourage people to use the five-second rule.
C. To show different people's opinions about the five-second rule.
D. To advise people to think twice before using the five-second rule.
Rik-rrork. That's the sound made by frogs singing at night.
u might have thought the noises were just the musical sounds of
ure. You probably didn't realize that you were listening to frogs
nmunicating with one another. These familiar sounds are not random
i意的) but are actually meaningful to frogs.
Being Heard but Not Seen
Frogs are good at being heard but not seen. These animals have several characters that protect them n predators (捕食者 ). One is their size. Most frogs are small, which helps them hide easily. Many frogs have coloring that allows them to hide in their environment, making it difficult for predators to find them. In addition, most frogs are active at night. So it is difficult for most animals to see them in the dark.
Small but Loud
Frogs call to tell other frogs where they are. Their voices can be very loud. But when frogs feel the footsteps of a larger animal, they become silent.
Many of the world's frogs live in rain forests, where there are many different animals calling to their own species (物种 ) in their own ways. Frogs need to call loudly enough to be heard through the noise in order to find other frogs.
Singing with Purpose
Peter Narins is a scientist who studies how frogs call to one another. He has learned that frogs use their calls to help them tell friend from enemy. They sing the same notes at the same volume (音量 ) each time they call. In addition, Narins has found that frogs of the same species always sing the same patterns (模式 ). These patterns are like a code that is different from other animals' calls and difficult
for others to copy. Narins also observed that timing plays a role in frog calls. Many frogs call only at a certain time of night.
More Work to Do
Scientists want to better understand the purpose of frog calls. Studies continue to explore the details of frogs' unique communication. Being heard but not seen is one way frogs stay safe. The idea that they have found a way to survive in a dangerous world is simply amazing.
49. Frogs are good at being heard but not seen because
A. they can not jump high B. they can hide easily
C. they are not active enough D. they have bright colors
50. Frogs need to call loudly to

C. be heard by other frogs D. feel the footsteps of a larger animal
51. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Frogs always sing the same notes at different volumes.
B. Frogs stay safe in a dangerous world only by their calls.
C. Some frogs call accidentally at different times of night.
D. Some details of frogs' communication still leave unknown.
52. Which is probably the best title of the passage?
A. Frog Songs B. Life of Frogs C Frog Secrets D. World of Frogs
Sometimes the world may feel like an unhappy place. However．you can make a difference. If you make even a person smile today, you can help make this world a better place. Here is a list of ideas to help you.
Send a handwritten letter
In this age where everything is sent by email, it is a shock to receive a letter
through the post. Writing a few words on paper to a friend is an easy way to
make one smile. Even a postcard with a couple of sentences could really make someone's day- all for the price of a stamp！
Volunteering is one of the nicest things you can do. It requires (需要 ) some time
and research to find the perfect project before volunteering. Whether you volunteer at
your local youth group or take dogs from the shelters for a walk, the simple fact that you are giving up your time to help someone else is unbelievable. There are so many chances, so you are sure to find one that is right for you. And it doesn't necessarily have to take up all your time-it could be once a week or a couple of times a year.
Make something for a special person
Whether you're creative or not, taking time to make something for someone else
M shows how much you appreciate (感激 ) them. Even if you think you are not creative,
the receiver will feel lucky to get such a special gift that you put your time into. Some
ideas could include a card, painting, drawing, song, poem or cake!
Tell someone "I love you"
It can be anyone-a family member or a friend. You don't even have to say "I
love you". Perhaps you can tell a friend that you appreciate all they are to you, or
remind your mum that you love her. Sometimes, in our busy lives, we forget to take a
moment to tell people what they mean to us.

A possible version
A School Trip to Yichang
Last term we went to Yichang and had a wonderful school trip, which is a great memory to me. We visited many interesting places. On the first day, we went to the Three Gorges Museum and saw many pictures of the famous project. The next day we took a boat on the Yangtze River and had a great time. I liked the visit to the tea garden most because we learned about the tea culture and tried making tea by ourselves.
In my opinion, it is a meaningful school trip. We not only get close to nature but also gain knowledge.

Your eyes allow you to see color, light, buildings and the faces of those you love. The eyes are a clear way to feel the world. Here are some tips about how to look after your eyes.
Take an eye break
Many people need to look at computer screens when they work or study. That puts a lot of pressure on their eyes. So for every 20 minutes spent looking at a screen, you should take an eye break of around 20 seconds. During the break, you should look at something that is at least 6 meters away.
Wear a sun hat or sunglasses
There are some harmful rays from the sun. UV rays can be harmful to eyes, so it’s best to get in the habit of protecting them from an early age. Wearing a sun hat or sunglasses is the best way to protect your eyes.
Eat eye-friendly foods
You can also protect your eyes by eating some eye-friendly foods. Green vegetables and fish can reduce the risk of eye problems.
Have a good sleep
Make sure you have a good night’s sleep. You may think you are doing nothing when you are sleeping. But it’s the time for your body to rebuild and repair. At night, your eyes keep cleaning out the dirty things which come in during the day.
