                               A    
      It was Molly’s job to hand her father his brown paper lunch bag each morning before he headed off to work.
    One morning,in addition to his usual lunch bag, Molly handed him a second paper bag. This one was worn and held together with staples(书钉).“Why two bags?” her father asked. “The other is something else” Molly answered.“What’s in it?” “Just some stuff.Take it with you.” Not wanting to discuss the matter, he put both sacks(bags) into his briefcase, kissed Molly and rushed off.At midday he opened Molly’s bag and took out the contents:two hair ribbons,three small stones,a plastic dinosaur,a tiny sea shell,a small doll,and 13 pennies...The busy father smiled,finished eating,and swept the desk clean into the wastebasket, Molly’s stuff included.
    That evening,Molly ran up behind him as he read the paper.”Where’s my bag?” “What bag?” “The one I gave you this morning” “I left it at the office, why ?” “I forgot to pu t this note in it”  she said. “And,besides,Daddy,the things in the sack are the things I really like.I thought you might like to play with them.You didn’t lose the bag,did you,Daddy?” “Oh,no” he said,lying. “I just forgot to bring it home.I’ll bring it back tomorrow” While Molly hugged her father’s neck,he unfolded the note that read” I love you,Daddy.” Molly had given him her treasures-all that a 7-year-old held dear.
    Love in a paper bag,and he missed it-not only missed it, but had thrown it in the wastebasket. So back he went to the office. Just ahead of the night janitor(看门人), he picked u p the bag from the wastebasket. He put the treasures inside and carried it home carefully. The bag didn't look so good, but the stuff was all there and that’s what counted.
   After dinner, he asked Molly to tell him about the stuff in the sack. It took a long time to tell. Everything had a story or a memory. “Sometimes I think of all the great times in this sweet life,” he thought.
    We should all remember that it’s not the destination that c ounts in life, but the journey. That journey with the people we love is all that really matters. It is such a simple truth but it is so easily forgotten.

Babies born in summer are more likely to become short-sighted in late life, a study has shown.
    As many as a quarter of all cases of short-sightedness are caused by too great an exposure to sunlight in the first weeks of life, say eye experts. They are advising all parents to put sunglasses on their babies during the first weeks. Scientists had already established that over-exposure to sunlight caused shortsightedness in animals. Researchers who compared the months in which babies were born with whether they needed glasses later on say the principle also applies to humans. A study of almost 300,000 young adults---the largest of its kind showed that those born in June and July had a 25 per cent greater chance of becoming severely short-sighted than those born in December or January. Research leader Professor Michael Belkin of Tel Aviv University, said it was because prolonged illumination(光照) causes the eyeball to lengthen, causing short-sightedness. Therefore, the more light a newborn is exposed to, the more the eyeball lengthens and the worse the short-sightedness will be. The mechanism which lengthens the eyeball is associated with levels of melatonin(褪黑激素), a pigment (色素) which protects the skin against harmful rays of the sun. In young babies not enough melatonin is released as protection, meaning they are more vulnerable to sunburn and changes to eyeball shape.
    Sight expert Professor Daniel O’Leary, of Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, said “At the moment we don’t know the precise cause of why light exposure affects sight, but the evidence seems to prove that it is one of the reasons for people becoming shortsighted.”
28. Babies born in summer are more likely to be shortsighted ____________.
    A. because the summer sun is too strong for babies
    B. because babies who are born in summer have lengthened eyebal ls
    C. if exposed to much sunlight in the first weeks after they are born
    D. if parents don’t know a proper way to protect their babies’ eyes
29. Melatonin is a kind of material to ___________.
    A. prevent the eyes from becoming near-sighted
    B. protect the skin from harmful sun rays
    C. make our body strong
    D. protect babies’ eyes from summer sun
30. From what Professor Daniel O’Leary says we can conclude that ___________.
    A. there is no evidence that shortsightedness is related to exposure to sunlight
    B. whether light exposure aff ects sight still needs to be further proved
    C. he believes that light exposure can cause shortsightedness
    D. he tries to give the cause of why light exposure affects sight
31. The underlined word “vulnerable” in the passage probably means __________.
A. easy to be harmed          B. resistant    C. protective       D. changeable
                                      D  
Last winter, when I was heavily pregnant, I was visiting my sister and brother-in-law's house and had to park in a nearby parking lot because they didn't have accessible parking. The snow was extremely heavy and there was lots of ice on the ground --- not many people had ventured out that evening!
    When I returned to my car around 11.pm, I noticed that I was the only car left. Nervously, I hopped into the car and let it warm up a bit. When I finally tried to drive away, my wheels began to spin. I was stuck! I spun and spun and wondered what to do.
    All of a sudden, in my rear view mirror, I saw four teen-aged boys approaching my car. They were walking side by side in a line and dressed a bit like gang members --- at least I thought that's what they looked like. My car was in a very isolated area and I began to panic. I was certain they were coming to my car to harm me. Terrified, I just froze. One of the young men tapped on my window and said "Excuse me, Ma'am, can we help you? You seem stuck." Still afraid and fearing the worst, I said "I am stuck." And the young man said "It's okay, stay in your car and we'll push you out of the snow." And they did!
    When they finally got me out of the snow, they smiled and waved. I rolled down my window and thanked them, embarrassed to have judged them so poorly
32.Why did the author just freeze when the four young men walking toward her car?
A. Because she was afraid of being harmed
B. Because she sat in her car for too long a time
C. Because she was cold indeed in that freezing evening
D. Because she knew they would rob her of the car
33.The author failed to drive away because __________.
A. she was terrified at the four young men   B. her car wasn’t warm enough
C. it was icy and full of snow on the ground.  D. something was wrong with the wheels.
34.Which of the following is TRUE according to the text?
A. One of the four teenagers was a gang member
B. The kids wanted to help the author out of trouble
C. The author would have a baby in her car
D. The young men enjoyed pushing cars out of the snow
35.The best title for the text would be___________
A. Every man has his faults          B. Fortune favors those who use their judgment
C. Don't judge a book by its cover     D. Think twice before you do
第二节(共5小题;每小题2分,满分10分)
根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项,并在答案卡36—40 将该项涂黑。选项中有两项为多余项。
If you think you’ve gained too much weight or are too skinny, you can talk to a doctor. Your doctor will tell you ______36________.
If it is concerned about your height, weight, or BMI (体重指数), your doctor may ask questions _______37. _______. Your doctor may also ask about your family background to find out if you’ve received something from your parents that might make you taller, shorter, or a late bloomer (someone who develops later than other people of the same age). The doctor can then put all the information together to decide ______38_______.
If your weight isn’t in a healthy range, you will probably get specific diet and exercise recommendations based on your individual needs. Following a doctor’s or dietitian’s plan designed especially for you will work much better than following fad (时尚) diets. For teens, fad diets or starvation plans can actually slow down growth, and the weight loss usually doesn’t last.
What  ______39________? Most teens who weigh less than other teens of their age are just fine. They may be going through puberty on a different schedule than kids of the same age, and their bodies may be growing and changing at a different rate. Most underweight teens catch up in weight as they finish puberty during their later teen years so there’s rarely a need to try to gain weight.
 In a few cases, teenagers can be underweight because of a health problem that needs treatment. If you feel tired or ill a lot, or _____40_______, or other problems that have lasted for more than a week or two, be sure to let your parents or your doctor know.
A. whether you might have a weight or growth problem.
B. if you have symptoms like a cough, stomachache
C. about your health, physical activity, and eating habits
D. if you’re worried about being too skinny
E. if you take care of it
F. whether you’re growing normally
G. about your dieting
