There was a gardener who looked after his garden with great care. To water his flowers, he used two buckets(桶). One was a shiny and new bucket. The other was a very old and dilapidated one, which had seen many years of service, but was now past its best.
Every morning, the gardener would fill up the two buckets. Then he would carry them along the path, one on each side, to the flowerbeds. The new bucket was very proud of itself. It could carry a full bucket of water without a single drop spilled (溢出)．The old bucket felt very ashamed because of its holes:before it reached the flowerbeds, much water had leaked along the path.
Sometimes the new bucket would say, "See how capable I am! How good it is that the gardener has me to water the flowers every day! I don't know why he still bothers with you. What a waste of space you are!"
And all that the old bucket could say was, "I know I'm not very useful, but I can only do my best. I'm happy that the gardener still finds a little bit of use in me, at least."
One day, the gardener heard that kind of conversation. After watering the flowers as usual, he said, "You both have done your work very well. Now I am going to carry you back. I want you to look carefully along the path."
Then the two buckets did so. All along the path, they noticed, on the side where the new bucket was carried, there was just bare(光秃秃的) earth;on the other side where the old bucket was carried, there was a joyous row of wild flowers, leading all the way to the garden.

On April 2，we said goodbye to Tiangong I，China’s first space lab．According to the China Manned Space Agency(中国载人航天)，Tiangong I re-entered the Earth's atmosphere （大气层）and fell into the South Pacific Ocean．
There are many spacecraft that are still in orbit above the Earth．They are flying at heights ranging from 300 to 1,000 kilometers．After finishing their trips，they will all re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere like Tiangong I．
There are two types of re-entries：controlled(受控的)re-entry and uncontrolled re-entry．
Some satellites(卫星)and manned spacecraft come back to the Earth in a controlled re-entry．Scientists calculate(计算)the path of the falling spacecraft and its speed．They can guide the spacecraft to fall in a chosen area．In 2017,Tianzhou I，China’s first cargo(货运)spacecraft, was directed to fall in the South Pacific Ocean．
Some spacecraft may have problems while in space, or are simply no longer usable
after a certain amount of time. These craft come back in an uncontrolled re-entry. It is
hard to tell when and where these spacecraft will fall until the last few hours．The US
space station Skylab came back partially uncontrolled in l979．Parts of the station fell
in western Australia, but no one was injured．
During re-entry, most of the spacecraft will burn up while passing through the
Earth’s atmosphere．Only a small amount of the debris(碎片)will reach the ground．
The debris typically ends up falling into the ocean，China Daily reported．Tiangong I
weighs about 8.5 tons．The amount of debris that falls to the Earth might be about l to
1.5 tons, the Beijing News reported . That is about the same weight as a car．
8．The debris from Tiangong I_____
A. fell into the South Pacific ocean B. fell in western Australia
C. fell in the central part of the US D. fell into the North Pacific Ocean
9．When the spacecraft finishes its trip，it will_____
A. burn up and disappear B. re-enter the Earth's atmosphere
C. speed up and fly back to Earth D. enter another orbit and stay in space
10．Which of the following is TRUE about the US space station Skylab?
A. It came back in a controlled re-entry．
B. Some people were injured by its debris．
C. It was hard to tell where it would fall in advance．
D. 1t was directed to fall into the ocean．
11．This story most likely comes from
A. a storybook B. a government report
C. a science magazine D. a movie review
If you live in Shanghai, Beijing or many other cities, you may see many orange bicycles on the streets these days.
These bikes are owned by a company called Mobike. You can order a bike through an app on your phone. When you find a bike, you just scan a QR code (扫描二维码) on the bike so you can use it. You don't need to return the bike to a station- you can park it anywhere.
China was known as "the kingdom of bicycles" about 30 years ago. But more people choose to drive cars and catch the subway these days. Bike rental（租凭的) services like Mobike are bringing bikes back.
“Back then, I got the feeling that Chinese people were trying to be modern and push away the past. So they did not want to be linked with bicycles," said Ines Brunn, a German woman who runs a bike store in Beijing. "I do believe changes in people's tastes will shape new thinking about bikes."
Online rental services are making biking more convenient, but it's still not easy to ride bikes in Chinese cities. Cars often take up bicycle lanes (道路). Bikers have to ride next to cars in car lanes, which can be very dangerous.
Beijing plans to build over 3,200 km of new bike lanes. Drivers who drive in bike lanes will be punished. Traffic signs will be put up to better protect bikers.
12. If you want to use a Mobike,____.
A. you have to scan a QR code B. you don't need to pay for it
C. you don't have to return it D. you have to pay for an app
13. Which of the following is NOT true, according to Paragraph 3?
A. China had the most bicycles in the world about 30 years ago.
B. There are more bicyclists than motorists these days.
C. More people are driving cars or taking the subway these days.
D. Bike rental services are becoming more popular.
14. What does Ines Brunn mean when she says people's tastes are changing?
A. Chinese people like modern things.
B. Chinese people like riding bicycles.
C. People in Beijing are changing their tastes.
D. More people will start riding bikes.
15. Which is the best title for the passage?
A. How to use a Mobike B. Orange bikes will be fashionable
C. Bringing back bikes D. Why is Beijing building new bike lanes?
Life is filled with regrets. 16 When we look back, we always wish that we had made better choices. Then what can we do to avoid future regrets?
Make better plans.
If you start to do something, you need to make a plan before doing it. The earlier, the better. 17 You'll also know what you should do and what you shouldn't do.
You can go around more often. More outdoor activities can keep you relaxed and active. You also need to be kind. 'Thank you' can bring a smile to someone's face. Learn to say 'sorry' and don't be angry with others.
Find the right friend.
A friend may make your life and can break your life as well. 19 Good friends will always better your ideas.

Last summer holiday, I paid visit to Hong Kong with my parents. To our surprises, we found the streets there were not as wide as that in our city. The buses and cars were running very fast. The sidewalks were always crowding because many visitors went there every day. The people there were friendly, and when we were asked them for help, they were willing to help us. We take many photos there and then shared them to our friends. We also bought some gifts there for much things were sold at a discount. We found it hardly to say goodbye to Hong Kong. We hope to go there once more unless we have chances.

One possible version:
I am sorry to know you were in hospital because you had a stomachache yesterday resulting from not eating breakfast. I’d like to offer you some advice.
As we all know, it is important to have a good breakfast that consists of grain, fruit and vegetables. However, you don’t have the habit of having breakfast on time, which is harmful to your health. I think you should develop a healthy way of life from now on. Besides, it is also wise to take enough physical exercise every day, which will help you stay energetic and free form disease.
I hope that my advice will be of great help to you.
