Look at the map of Spain and point at the center. You've located the country's capital and one of Europe's most beautiful cities: Madrid. This popular destination is considered a city of contrasts with its abundant historic sites, resting in the shadows of modern skyscrapers.
This city of over 3 million people is proud of Western Europe's largest royal palace, and some consider it to be Madrid's most beautiful building.
Inside the Royal Palace 2, 800 rooms are decorated in glory with museum－quality furniture and artworks. Tourists can tour 50 of these large and splendid rooms.
The Internationally respected Prado Museum is the largest and most impressive art gallery in Spain. Opened in 1819, it is filled with works of art that feature the world's most comprehensive collection of Spanish paintings.
Madrid has some of Europe's best shopping, and potential buyers love to look through the stores looking for bargains. But for 500 years, shoppers have gathered to an extremely large outdoor flea market known as the Rastro where they find everything from antiques to CDs.
No trip to Madrid is complete without seeing a performance of Spain's famous art form, flamenco. Every day, flamenco performers sing, dance or play the guitar in small cafes and grand theaters alike.
Madrid has a wide variety of restaurants, but because the Spanish typically eat late at about 9 or 10 p．m., it's difficult to find good dinner food earlier. If you get hungry before then, the best solution is to try a tapas bar where light snacks are served. Be sure to try the jamon, a kind of dry－cured ham: Spain is famous for it.
21. What do we know about the Royal Palace in Madrid?
A. It has 50 rooms for visit. B. It can hold 2, 800 people.
C. It's been visited by 3 million people. D. It is thought to be the largest in Europe.
22. What kind of market is “the Rastro”？
A. For discount. B. For artworks. C. To sell various goods. D. To sell antiques and CDs.
23. What is a must when travelling in Madrid?

C. Visiting Prado Museum. D. Drinking in a tapas bar.
Years ago, I volunteered at a homeless shelter in Los Angeles, handing out food. Once I got talking with Albert., a tall and skinny young guy in line. He said he liked my socks. “Want to see mine?” he joked, lifting his leg. He was barefoot. I felt a sinking feeling in my stomach.
The next day, after work, I stopped at Ross and filled up my truck with socks. The following early morning, I drove over to Santa Monica's Palisades Park, which is a common destination for homeless people.
I took one of the bags from my trunk. It was still dark out. I headed for a group of three men, standing around a tree, probably using it as a windbreaker. Two were asleep under heavy blankets, and the third was digging through his collection. As I walked toward him, he watched me, perhaps questioning my motives. “I thought you guys might need some fresh new socks,” I said, handing him a pair. He looked confused at first but took them and said, “Thank you.” I gave him two more pairs for his friends.
I moved on. An hour later, I had given out all the socks. Most people were sleeping, and I felt like Santa. I knew that when they wake up they would find a very meaningful present.
That was nine years ago. Every week I’ll hand out as many socks as I can. If I’m on vacation or on a business trip for more than a week, I bring a bag of socks with me and hand them out to the homeless on the streets in other states and countries.
It’s extremely satisfying to operate “under the radar（雷达）” to help make some people’s lives a little bit easier. Part of me hopes to see Albert out there one of these days, but even if I don’t, I like to think one of the pairs will find him.
24. What does the underlined part in Paragraph I most probably mean?
A. Sorry. B. Homesick. C. Regretful. D. Embarrassed.
25. What is Ross most probably?
A. A garage. B. A store. C. A public park. D. A homeless shelter.
26. What made the author feel especially satisfied with giving out socks?
A. Playing Santa in public. B. Helping others silently.
C. Spending early morning at a park. D. Making weekends as holidays.
27. Which of the following could be the best title?
A. Satisfactory Return from Kindness. B. The Easy Way Out of Helping the Poor.
C. A Unique Experience at a Homeless Shelter.
D. Helping the Homeless in an Unexpected Way.
Finland is the happiest place on Earth, according to the 2018 World Happiness Report of 156 nations.
The report, released Wednesday by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Solutions Network, ranks the countries of the world based on six different categories of well-being: income, freedom, trust, life expectancy, generosity and social support. This year's report also pays special attention to the happiness of each country’s immigrants.
The U.S. dropped four spots from 2017 and landed in 18th place, and last year’s winner, Norway, came in second place — followed by Denmark, Iceland and Switzerland.
“The top five countries all have almost equally high values for the six factors found to support happiness, and four of these countries—Denmark, Switzerland, Norway and now Finland — have been in first place in the six World Happiness Report rankings since the first report" in 2012, ”co-editor John Helliwell told CNN. “In a division with such excellent teams, changes in the top spot are to be expected."
Rounding out the top 10 happiest countries was Canada in sixth place, then New Zealand, Sweden and Australia. The order of the top 10 nations changed from the 2017 list but the countries did not, according to the report. They were also 10 of the 11 top spots in the immigrant happiness category (including Mexico — 24th overall, but 10th in immigration).
“The most striking finding of the report is the remarkable consistency between the happiness of immigrants and the locally born,” Helliwell said in a statement. “Although immigrants come from countries with very different levels of happiness, their reported life evaluations resemble those of other residents in their new countries. Those who move to happier countries gain, while those who move to less happy countries lose.”
Other major world powers placed in significantly low spots on the list. Germany came in 15th, the UK was 19th — followed by Japan in 54th place, Russia in 59th and China in 86th.
The report, based on surveys completed by citizen volunteers, came just under a week before World Happiness Day on March 20, when the UN declared to recognize “the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives”
28. The US ranked ______ in 2017.
A. 14 B. 10 C.18 D. 22
29. What is the most significant finding of the report?
A. That immigrants are different from residents in the country.
B. That immigrants come from countries with different levels of happiness.
C. That immigrants become happy when they leave the country.
D. That immigrants and locals feel the similar level of happiness.
30. What can be inferred from the last paragraph?
A. Happiness is no less important than any other aspect in life.
B. People’s happiness and well-being should be considered when it comes to policy-making.
C. The happiness report came under a week before World Happiness Day.
D. What the UN declared was beneficial to all human beings.
31. What is the best title of the passage?
A. World Happiness Day. B. Happiness¬¬ — forever pursuit.
C. What's your happiness index(指数)? D. The 2018 World Happiness Report.
Ever walked to the shops only to find, once there, you’ve completely forgotten what you went for? Or struggled to remember the name of an old friend? For years we’ve accepted that a forgetful brain is as much a part of aging as wrinkles and gray hair. But now a new book suggests that we’ve got it all wrong.
According to The Secret Life of the Grown-up Brain, by science writer Barbara Strauch, when it comes to the important things, our brains actually get better with age. In fact, she argues that some studies have found that our brain hits its peak between our 40s and 60s — much later than previously thought.
Furthermore, rather than losing many brain cells as we age, we keep them, and even produce new ones well into middle age. For years it’s been assumed that brain, much like the body, declines with age. But the longest, largest study into what happens to people as they age suggests otherwise.
This continuing research has followed 6,000 people since 1956, testing them every seven years. It has found that on average, participants performed better on cognitive (认知的) tests in their 40s and 50s than they had done in their 20s. Specifically, older people did better on tests of vocabulary, verbal memory (how many words you can remember) and problem solving. Where they performed less well was number ability and perceptual speed — how fast you can push a button when ordered. However, with more complex tasks such as problem-solving and language, we are at our best at middle age and beyond. In short, researchers are now coming up with scientific proof that we do get wiser with age.
Neuroscientists are also finding that we are happier with aging. A recent US study found older people were much better at controlling and balancing their emotions. It is thought that when we’re younger we need to focus more on the negative aspects of life in order to learn about the possible dangers in the world, but as we get older we’ve learned our lessons and are aware that we have less time left in life: therefore, it becomes more important for us to be happy.
32. Barbara Strauch probably agrees that ______.
A. the young are better at handling important things
B. people’s brains work best between their 40s and 60s
C. aging leads to the decline of the function of the brain
D. wrinkles and gray hair are the only symbols of aging
33. The continuing research has found older people perform better on ______.
A. perceptual speed B. number ability C. vocabulary tests D. body balance
34. People are happier with aging because ______.
A. they learn to value the time left B. they know how to share feelings
C. they cannot focus on negative aspects D. they do not realize the possible dangers
35. What is the main idea of the passage?
A. People get happier with age. B. People get wiser with age.
C. People get more forgetful with age. D. People get more self-aware with age.

I believe we can create our own happiness. I believe the real magic in the world is done by humans.
I was sitting in my 41 at a stoplight listening to the radio, thinking how happy and warm I was in it. It was 42 outside, and I thought, “Life is good."
Now, this was a long line．As I 43 , I noticed two people huddled（挤在一起） together at the bus stop. The couple seemed to be doing their best to keep 44 .To my eyes, they were unhappy and uncomfortable. They looked 45 ．Their coats looked like they came from a bargain store.
But then I saw their 46 . Yes, they were huddling, but they were also laughing. They seemed to be sharing a good 47 , and suddenly, instead of pitying them, I envied them. I thought, "Huh, what's so funny?" They didn't notice the wind. They weren't looking at my car thinking, "I 48 I had that."
You know 49 a single moment feels like an hour? Well, in that moment, I realized I had 50 things were all bad for them, but they weren't. And I understood we all have the 51 to make moments of 52 happen.
Now, maybe that's easy for me to say. I feel lucky to have a house with a roof and a wife who 53 me. I felt this 54 even when I was working at Long John Silver's. In the beginning, it didn’t seem like a promising job. But 55 I had a job．And frankly, it was 56 ．After two weeks, I knew all I needed to know, and it freed my mind. The job allowed me to 57 about what my life could become.
The first year I worked there, we got robbed. I thought I was going to die．But everything 58 out all right. A lot of people 59 life as a series of miserable tasks, but after that, I didn't.
I believe this is 60 all of us can do: Try to be happy within the context of the life we are actually living. Happiness is not a situation to be longed for or a convergence of luck. Through the power of our own minds, we can help ourselves.

Rain is of greatly importance to us. Without rain, our water supply would cut off and we would die, such would plants and animals. Therefore, too much rain does a lot of harms to us. It floods fields, towns and cities, cause great losses for us. So far, man’s control over rain had never stopped. If we can gain more effective control over rain, we will enjoy more freedom from the nature. Luckily, we humans have taken steps, such as planting more trees or using weather forecasts, to help avoiding flood damage and protect our water supply.

I am glad that you are interested in Chinese idioms. Chinese idioms, mainly consisting of four Chinese characters, have been appealing to those absorbed in the Chinese language because they are an important part of Chinese culture. The benefits of learning them can be listed as follows.
First, with many of Chinese idioms widely used in our daily life, having a good knowledge of them contributes to better understanding both spoken Chinese and written Chinese. Second, they usually possess vivid and profound meanings, making what you try to convey more convincing.
As far as I’m concerned, I have a preference for the interesting stories behind some of the Chinese idioms. Not only are they interesting, but also they tend to teach some wisdom, which helps me a lot.
I sincerely hope you can learn them well.
