The first involved America’s relations with France.France helped America win its war for independence from Britain. The friendship formed during the war continued afterward when Thomas Jefferson served as Minister to Paris. Relations began to go bad as soon as he returned home. The man who replaced him openly supported the losing side in the French revolution. After the revolution succeeded, the new French government demanded that he leave. Most Federalists(联邦主义者) didn’t want good relationships with France. They searched for any signs of insult(侮辱) and any excuse to declare war.President Adams wanted to improve relations with France through negotiations (协商). Yet he said the United States would strengthen its defenses. One incident, especially, brought the two nations close to war. It’s known in American history books as the “ X, Y and Z Affair ”. President Adams had appointed three ministers to negotiate with the French government. French officials kept these three men waiting for several weeks. While they waited, they had a visit from three Frenchmen---later called X,Y and Z. X,Y and Z told the Americans that France would sign an agreement if the United States did three things. It had to lend the French government twelve million dollars. It had to apologize for anti-French statements in a recent message from President Adams to the American Congress. And it had to pay the French foreign minister 250,000 dollars.The American ministers were willing to pay. But they wanted to sign the agreement first. The French foreign minister refused. First the money, then the agreement. The Federalists finally had the excuse they were looking for. France had insulted the United States. The only answer was war.24. Why did America and France have a good relationship at first?A. Because Thomas Jefferson worked hard on it.B. America supported the French revolution.C. America and France often helped each other.D. France helped America get away from Britain.25.What happened to the three ministers when they arrived in France?A. No one came to negotiate with them at first.B. They were treated very nicely.C. They were asked to apologize at once.D. They were watched over by three men.26. What was the excuse that the Federalists found?A. France hurt the three ministers.B. France looked down upon the United States.C. France asked for too much money.D. France was unwilling to sign the agreement.27. What is the passage mainly about?A. The relations between France and the US.B. John Adams’ great achievement as President.C. How the war between the US and France started.D. How the friendship between the US and France started.CWhen Mark Levine, an English-language instructor at Beijing’s Minzu University of China, was first invited to attend a Chinese colleague’s wedding in Jiangsu province in 2017, his second year in China, the California native was ready to present a small decorative gift for the new couple as he used to do in the United States.However, his gesture suddenly didn’t seem proper as he realized the Chinese at the ceremony had red envelopes filled with cash to present rather than a packed gift.“It’s a little bit embarrassing when you present something that people didn’t expect to receive on certain occasions,” Levine, who used to be a social worker in the US, told China Daily recently.“In the US, people do that as well but only for close relatives. People would normally give things as presents, while here in China red envelopes are more commonly welcomed.”It was the first time the 66-year-old discovered the ceremony－including taboos(禁忌)－in gift giving. He was not alone, as the recent argument following a British minister’s visit to Taipei, Taiwan, revealed.British Minister of State for Transport Baroness Susan Kramer presented a watch in January to Ko Wen-je, mayor of Taipei, when she visited the city, immediately sparking headlines as she broke a long-held taboo in Chinese culture.A clock or watch, or zhong in Mandarin, signifies “the end” in Chinese, and many associate it with death. Therefore, giving someone, especially an elder, a clock or watch implies “your time is up”.Kramer later apologized for the gaffe（失礼）, but Ko was also blamed for his “rude” response as he told reporters that he had no use for the watch and would sell it for cash.However, some foreigners in China, such as Mark Dreyer, support Ko in this particular debate. “When I heard about the story, I felt embarrassed,” said Dreyer, a British citizen who has lived and worked in China since 2007. “After all, ‘don’t give clocks or watches to your hosts’ is on page 1 of most China travel guides. I’m embarrassed by the lack of respect shown by the British for not even reading about the customs ahead of time.”28. What does the underlined word “that” in Paragraph3 refer to? A. Presenting gifts. B. Giving cash. C. Attending weddings. D. Receiving money. 29. How did the public view Ko’s response to the gift?A. They considered it a smart move. B. They believed he had no other choice. C. They saw it as a rudeness. D. They thought it proper. 30. What was Dreyer’s attitude to the British Minister’s gift?A. Negative. B. Supportive. C. Positive. D. Doubtful.31. What can we learn from the passage?A. Presenting red envelopes is a bad custom in China.B. British know nothing about Chinese customs.C. Americans don’t expect to receive cashes as gifts.D. Chinese don’t expect to receive clocks as gifts.DThe function of education is to prepare children for life, so we ought to concentrate on teaching them really useful things. Here is what I think our schools should teach. Courtesy(礼貌)—The sooner our young people learn this, the better. Politeness and consideration are the signs of civilization. In any case, a lot more can be accomplished by a smile and good manners than with a PhD（博士学位）. Managing Money—Like it or not, for most of us, our adult lives will be consumed by the struggle for this. Is borrowing on a credit card a good thing? How do you live within your means? No one should be expected to pick this up after leaving school (or worse, after getting a job). We have a responsibility to teach our young people this basic skill from the beginning. Health—Kids should learn to take care of their bodies. They should know that if they eat junk food, they will become fat and unhealthy. They should be very clear about what happens to their bodies when they drink, smoke, or take drugs. Society—The idea here is that all of us are part of something much bigger. We have rights and responsibilities. We ought to understand what they are, and why they are that way. We have to know a little bit of our immediate history and geography, because we need to have a context in which to relate to the people around us. Are these subjects too “low-brow”? Perhaps. Don’t get me wrong: science and literature are important. There will always be a place in the world for quantum (量子) physicists and Shakespearean scholars. But our schools cannot be designed to enable the best and the brightest to excel(胜出). They must also equip the weakest among us to survive.32. What would be the best title for the passage? A. The Functions of Education B. Schooling for the Future C. The Advantages of School Education D. Really Useful Schooling33. What can we infer from this passage? A. Courtesy is as important as academic (学业的)achievement. B. Eating junk food is the most serious health problem at present. C. The present school education attaches too much importance to textbooks. D. Managing money will soon be included as a subject in the school.34. What does the underlined word “low-brow” in the last paragraph probably mean? A. not demanding much intelligence to be understood B. not important C. not deserving much attention D. not practical35. What point of view does the author hold? A. It’s of little importance to learn history and geography. B. Schools should meet the needs of both the best and the weakest.C. Science and literature are the most important for school education. D. students don’t have to know about rights and responsibilities.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填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。Many students have to live with roommates while going to school or university.

I was playing joyfully in the park while a little boy of my age called Jason came to me and invited me to his house. I found him wear light colorful clothes, which could change colours. He told you it was in AD 3008 on the earth. Then the driverless car landed before us and we fly to his house, which was like a castle floating in the air.
