When you are travelling, whether on business or for pleasure, you often need to stay in a hotel. The kind of hotel you choose probably is decided above all according to how much money you want to spend. There are small hotels with very few services, where the prices are low, or there are large hotels with all the very latest comforts, where you could spend a lot of the money you have in the bank for one very comfortable night.
There are several different kinds of people who go to hotels. Some want to live, rather than just stay, in a hotel; the hotels which are designed to meet their needs are called residential hotels(长住型饭店). However, most people who stay in hotels are either business people or tourists on holiday.
In most hotels, there are two kinds of rooms: single rooms, for the use of one person, and double rooms, for the use of two people. In addition, in large hotels, there are also suites(套房), which include two or more rooms connected together — perhaps a bed-room and a living room. They are for people who are very rich or very important.
21. One’s choice of a particular hotel is made mainly according to _______.
A. how much one is willing to pay for a night

The Gold Coast family holidays are always great fun whether you are from Australia or from abroad. There are beautiful beaches, adventure parks, nature parks and so much more.
There are so many sights to see here. It is a pity to drive in a car and you’ll miss a great part of it. Australia is home to many animals and birds that can only be seen when moving slowly and going into the areas where they live.
When you are on a bicycle, you have the strength of being able to stop whenever you want to see an interesting animal or bird that you have never seen before. It is a quieter way of transportation as well, so you might even be able to take a picture. When you are on the beach, you can breathe that clean air and view the beauty of the water and sand. It is a totally different experience from either simply sunbathing or passing it in a car.
There are many choices of hiring a bicycle to experience the Gold Coast attractions. There are stores that will fit a bike perfectly to your size.

Once upon a time, there lived a rich man. He had a servant (仆人). He and the servant loved wine and good food very much. Each time the rich man left his home, the servant would drink the wine and eat up all the nice food in the house. The rich man knew what his servant did, but he had never caught his servant doing that.
One morning, when he left home, he said to the servant, “Here are two bottles of poison (毒药) and some nice food in the house. You must take of them.” With these words, he went out.
But the servant knew that the rich man had said was untrue. After the rich man was away from his home, he enjoyed a nice meal. Because he drank too much, he was drunk and fell to the ground. When the rich man came back, he couldn’t find his food and his wine. He became very angry. He woke the servant up. But the servant told his story very well. He said :“a cat had eaten up everything.

In the early days of human history, people survived by hunting wild animals, or gathering wild grains and plants for food. Then, some people learned to grow crops and raise animals for food. They were the first farmers.
From the sixteenth century on, the word “farm” has meant agricultural land. But a much older meaning of the word “farm” is linked to economics. The word “farm” comes from the Latin word “firma”, which means an unchanging payment. Experts say the earliest meaning of the English word “farm” was a yearly payment made as a tax or rent.
Farmers in early England did not own their land. They paid every year to use agricultural lands. In England, farmers used hawthorn trees along the edges of houses. They called this row of hawthorns a hedge. Hedging fields was how careful farmers marked and protected them. Soon, people began to use the word “hedging” to describe steps that could be taken to protect against financial loss. Hedging is common among gamblers who make large bets. A gambler bets a lot of money on one team. But, to be on the safe side, he also places a smaller bet on the other team, to reduce a possible loss.
You might say that someone is hedging his bet when he invests in several different kinds of business. One business may fail, but likely not all. Farmers know that it is necessary to make hay while the sun shines. Hay has to be cut and gathered when it is dry. So a wise farmer never postpones gathering his hay when the sun is shining. Rain may soon appear. A wise person copies the farmer. He works when conditions are right.
33 We can know from the 3rd paragraph that farmers in early England _________.
A had land of their own B paid to use hawthorn trees every year
C used hedging fields D often suffered from financial loss
34 Which of the following is wise?
A A mother tries to sleep as soon as her baby is quiet
B Hay has to be cut and gathered before it is dry
C Put off gathering hay when the sun is shining
D Gather hay as it is rainy
35 If a boy is carefully listening to his teacher in class, he learns to _________.
A become a wise farmer B hedge his bet
C gather his hay D make hay while the sun shines
It is a tendency that more and more people enjoy keeping pets to drive off their loneliness. You will, of course, take them when you are not at home. 36 There is no reason why your dog shouldn’t be treated just like every member of the family and kept safe throughout your travels. 37 These dangers include accidents and even sudden stops that can cause serious injuries. You have to keep in mind that these dangers that could affect you, could also affect your dog! 38
However, there are many ways for you to protect your dog while traveling. There are many companies that make seat belts and harnesses (安全吊带) designed to protect dogs while traveling. 39 While a car is moving it acts as lifesaving devices during accidents.
A safe car travel with your dog is very important to your safety and also to your dog. If your dog is not harnessed down while driving, it could jump onto your lap and could cause you to have an accident. 40 Additionally, there are many countries that require that any animal in a car should be put in a travel kit.
A This could result in injury to yourself and also to your dog.
B There are many dangers that you may come across while you are traveling.
C Maybe your dog could escape or be killed facing the dangers.
D If you often travel with your dog, there is no doubt that you should be just as concerned about your dog’s safety as yours and other passengers.
E All blame must attach to your dog.
F Therefore, you should take proper safety measures to protect it.
G These devices are created and designed to keep dogs in place.

Mr. Smith had a 8-year-old son named Tony, who enjoyed listen to music very much. So he bought a piano to Tony, hoping that he can become a famous pianist one day. The little boy put her heart into practising the piano day after day and seemed to enjoy every minute of it. Therefore, half a year later, he told his father that he was tiring of practising the piano. Hearing this, Mr. Smith said, “Tony, it is one thing to be fond listening to music, but it is another thing to perform good by yourself. You can never play the piano well even if you don’t practise more.”

One possible version:
Recently, we held a heated discussion about how to live harmoniously in the school. Here are the opinions of our group.
First of all, as middle school students, we should be kind and friendly to others, always ready to give a helping hand to those in need. Besides, we must behave ourselves, obeying both class and school rules and doing what we can for the class. Also, it matters a great deal to be honest and trustworthy in our daily life. Secondly, we should respect the old and love the young, especially showing concern for our parents and our teachers by understanding them and following their instructions. Last but not least, we should learn to communicate with others. Try to be considerate and put ourselves in others’ shoes, especially when frictions come about.
We hope all of us can enjoy our school life.

More and more office workers are using standing desks．According to scientists like
Amy Williams，(1 7)if you sit for many hours every day,you might have health problems．
Companies have been designing special standing desks．Some people even exercise while
working at an“exercise desk”．Not everyone likes these new desks．People who wear high
heels or fancy suits to work don’t like them．They think it isn’t a good idea to stand all
day in their professional clothing．(1 8)Some managers are concemed it may look funny to
customers．Others have trouble working on difficult projects unless they are sitting down．
Standing desks are also expensive．Lisa Brown of Strong International Trading Company agrees：“What a waste of money!(19)If I need to move at work，I take a break and go for a walk．”Yet another worker at Strong，a man named James Ryan，states，“Since I put in my standing desk I have more energy and I can get more done at work．”
