Look at a map of Spain and point a the center. You’ve located the county’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 place, 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 artwork. 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 with out 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 pm, 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, dry-cured ham: Spain is famous for it.
Time for a break
After a day of touring, relax in 350-acre Retire Park with its beautiful gardens,fish pond and lake. It is the perfect place to reflect on all you’ve enjoyed in this impressive Spanish city.
21. What do we know about the Royal Palace?

B. It can hold 2, 800 people.

A. Enjoying flamenco.
B. Having dinner earlier.
C. Relaxing in Retiro Park.
D. Drinking in a tapas bar.
Steve Brosnihan is the “resident cartoonist” at the children’s Hospital, who wanders from room to room drawing and chatting and doing whatever else he can think of to cheer up the sick children. During one visit, he was saying good night to a teenage patient when he had a bright idea.
Steve told the teenager to look out of the window after he left. Outside, Steve flickered(闪烁)his bike light up toward the hospital. To his surprise, the teen responded, flickering his own room lights right back.
Every night after that, Steve flickered his light, and more and more kids flickered back. When he mentioned it to a friend working at a restaurant, the owner said he wanted in too. He started to flick the restaurant sign for one minute every night at 8:30. Soon enough, the customers started joining in with flashlights and cell phones. Almost by accident, a simple gesture was changing into a powerful connection between local people and sick children.
Now more than 20 groups are on board for the *:30 p.m. flicker. Every Wednesday night, police officers line up their cars and flash them. Even boats on the river join in to give their bright good-night wave to kids who are going through frightening situations and sleeping in a strange place.
“it is all I look forward to basically all day” says Abigail Waldron, aged ten. “ It just shows you that somebody is helping you through your whole experience in the hospital.”
“It would be very hard not to do this,” says Steve, “ once you start.” The most powerful of all, he adds, comes from the families of children who have died. They continue to return to the hospital to flicker a light outside in support of children who are still patients.
24. Why did Steve Brosnihan flicker his bike light?
A. To get light for the hospital.

With the ever-increasing popularity of online shopping, users’ reviews are becoming more and more important. Given that you can’t actually touch, see, smell or hear the product you’re buying online, these reviews provide buyers valuable information on the product itself. But how far can you trust them?
Barnaby Bicken had an unpleasant experience. “I took some friends to a restaurant in Manchester that had excellent review on a food website. However, the service was awful and we were ignored most of the time. Later, I wrote a review to the same site only to be told that the review site owner would not accept and bad reviews—only the good ones.
So, how can you get a useful review? Web expert Hilary Saunders has a few top tips. “If there are only a few reviews of a place, there is a good chance they have been planted by friends or enemies. If there are many reviews, start by dropping the most extreme comments. Also, watch out for similarities in style between reviews from people with different usernames, particularly if those reviews were placed about the same time. The best thing is to look for reviewers who show some relevant knowledge of the product they are reviewing.
Some companies seem to be contributing to the problem. A publishing house offered gift vouchers(礼券) to anyone who would give their textbook a five-star review. But not all online companies operate like this. “Amazon works hard to keep the completeness of its customer reviews,” said a spokesperson for the company. “We have very clear guidelines, and when a customer reports a review that they feel is inappropriate, we check, and may take it down.
So, next time you see that 5-star review for something you want to buy, be aware—it could be the work of a false reviewer!
28. What does “them” in Para. 1refer to?
29. What does Barnaby Bicken’s story imply?
A. The food served was awful.
B. Not all reviews are believable.
C. Many people are easily cheated.
D. He likes to write bad reviews.
30. What reviews of products are useful?
A. Those by competitors.
B. Those by different users.
C. Those with good comments.
D. Those with related information.
31. How does Amazon deal with the customer reviews?
A. Helps to finish the reviews.
B. Pays attention to the bad reviews.
C. Offers gifts for the good reviews.
D. Tries to make the reviews objective.
As missing children age, they outgrow their last known photographs, which makes finding them tough. Now AI(Artificial Intelligence) could make it quicker to match any found children to those old photos.
Police can use software to age photos of people who have been missing for a while, but these tend to work best in adults, as age-related changes to adult faces are more predictable and so easier to make.
With children, these aged images(图像) don’t tend to resemble the older child, and matching photos of found children to old images in a database of missing children is difficult. “Given a recent face image of a child, it is extremely hard for a human to recognize, visually, who the child is from a large data set of child face images,” says Debayan Deb at Michigan State University.
Now Deb and his colleagues have created an algorithm(算法) to do this for them. They created a face-recognition algorithm on data sets, which contains images of nearly 1000 children between 2 and 18 years old. Each was photographed at least four times over a period of six years.
The AI learned to match recent photographs of children with images taken 2.5 years earlier80 percent of the time.
With one year between the two photographs, the method was 90 percent accurate a recognizing faces. This dropped to 73 percent after three years. The approach beats comparing children with photos taken when they were aged 0 to 4 that have been aged by software, which stays at 50 percent recognition after six months. The new AI might help to improve accuracy of this kind of software as well.
Deb’s next goal is to make the age gap wider. His team also hopes to develop an app that could be used to fight child trafficking.
32. What is suggested in Para.1?
A. The old photos are hard to read.
B. Found children change greatly
C. Children’s faces are unpredictable.
D. Photos of children are easy to match.do the research?
33. Why do Ded’s team do the research?
A. To prove the advantages of AI function
B. To help the police change their software
C. To build a data base to find the missing children.
D. To improve the accuracy of children’s face-recognition.
34. What does the underlined word “trafficking” in the last paragraph mean?
A. Image matching
D. Illegal trade.
35. What is the main idea of the text?
A. Al could match missing kids to old photos.
B. Age-related changes to faces are predictable.
C. A face-recognition algorithm has been created.
D. A new software is improved to find missing kids.
The holiday season is supposed to be the most festive and fun time of the year, but all those plans and expectations of joy can turn tougher and more stressful than they sound. This is especially true for those of us who struggle with mental illness.
36. Sometimes you’re forced to spend time with family you rarely see and don’t always get along with. Or you are off from work, with more time to think troubling thoughts. Or you are put into party situations that you don’t like.
When you have a routine, it’s easier to manage whatever mental struggles you may face, and when that routine is broken, it can(引发)things you may not be ready to face. 37 . It was during the holidays when I hit a low moment and, with the help of my mother, decided to seek help for my eating disorder.

Take a walk in nature. Talk to a friend you trust. Sit out one of the holiday gatherings in favor of some personal time, 39 .
Trying to spend all of your time pleasing everyone else is not only exhausting—it’s impossible. And you know what? 40.
A. I know it has for me.
B. The holidays break your routine.
C. There are many things crowding in your mind.
D. I will accompany my friends to go wherever they like.
E. I have the added guilt of knowing it’s the season of giving
F. Just do whatever helps you calm down and gives you a break from the stress.
G If you take a little time for yourself, you will be much better company for those around you.

The Year of the dog began on Feb. 16, 2018 according to the Chinese Lunar calendar. Though dogs 61(see) as companions and part of the family today, China and Western countries do not have the same cultural 62 (belief) about dogs.
In Chinese, some words 63(concern) dogs have not very good meanings, such as “No ivory(象牙)can come out of a dog’s mouth”. But in English, the situation is 64 (differ). “Every dog has his day” describes a person with a period of good fortune and “work like a dog” is used 65 (describe) a hard worker.
The dog-human relationship goes right 66 to the beginnings of Western civilization, and the friendship between humans and dogs was a common subject for artists.
67 facts, people were close to dogs in a way they weren’t close to cows, pigs or even horses. Farmers worked 68 (close)with dogs. But even after science came to agriculture and dogs lost 69 traditional roles, the relationship between man and dogs remained.
Nowadays in the West, millions of people keep dogs as pets. People food them, take them on holidays 70 look after them. In return, dogs are loyal(忠诚)in a way that friends sometimes aren’t. This loyalty is the origin of the English saying, “A dog is man’s best friend.”
