If you have ever had a cat, or have watched one of the many funny cat videos online, you’ll know that cats have a mind of their own. A lot of the things they do are hard to understand---they like to climb up tall furniture, fit themselves in small spaces and attack small objects for no reason at all.
Now scientists have managed to figure out what exactly is going on in the brains of our little friends. According to Tony Buffington, a professor at Ohio State University in the US, cats’ strange behavior largely comes from their way of life back in the wild. “Cats today still have many of the same instincts(本能)that allowed them to live in the wild for millions of years.” he said in a TED Talk. “To them, our homes are their jungles.”
In the wild, cats are hunters. Their bodies and great balancing abilities allow them to climb to high spots to better look at the environment. Even though they don’t have to hunt anymore in human houses, they still keep the old habit of viewing the living room from, for example, the top of the refrigerator.
Cats’ hunting instinct is also what makes them attack small things like keys and USB drives. In the wild, they hunt whatever they can get, and most of the animals they kill are small.
However, cats can also be prey. This explains why they like to stay in small spaces like drawers or washing machines---they are hiding, or they think they are hiding, from more dangerous animals. This is also why cats prefer a clean box: a smelly one could easily show enemies where they are.
Knowing how cats’ minds work is not only useful for better understanding them. It may also help cats’ owners to better meet cats’ needs. For example, owners could try to make climbing easier for cats by moving their furniture around. They could also use “food puzzles” to make eating feel more like hunting instead of just giving food to the cats.
24. According to Tony Buffington, ________.
A. cats’ strange behavior is hard for people to understand
B. cats are more used to living in the wild than in humans’ homes
C. cats behave strangely mainly because of some instincts in the wild
D. cats’ instincts are as helpful to them today as they were millions of year ago
25. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the text?
A. Cats like to climb up high because they want to hide from dangerous animals
B. Cats attack keys and USB drives because they have a habit of hunting small animals
C. Cats enjoy staying in small spaces because they usually live in small caves in the wild

26. The underlined word “prey” in Paragraph 5 probably means _________.
A. an animal that is too lazy
B. an animal that likes hiding games
C. an animal that keeps itself clean
D. an animal that is hunted
27. This article is mainly written to _________.
A. explore the reasons behind cats’ strange behavior
B. describe cats’ past wild experience to readers
C. tell cat owners how to make life easier for cats
D. compare cats’ behavior in human homes with that in the wild
China dropped its decades-long, one-child policy last year to allow each family to have two children. This change has put 270 million married women of childbearing age in the position of choosing between family and work. The employers also face big challenges as more female workers will have two maternity leaves(产假)for a total of seven to eight months.
In a survey published by classified advertising website Ganji.com, career women who might be considering having a second child were asked what kinds of pressure they might expect. More than 76 percent of the women who were questioned mentioned concerns about the financial burden of raising two children, while more than 71 percent said it would be difficult to balance career and family. In addition, nearly 56 percent said that having a second child would definitely have a negative effect on their career.
Another survey conducted by Chongqing-based human resources webstie job.cq.qq.com found that over 70 percent of job seekers believe that having a second child would make females less popular in the job market, although two-thirds of the employers said the policy will make no difference in their employment of staff.
Feng Lijuan, s senior expert on human resources at 51 job.com, a leading Chinese job finding platform, said she would not say “there is prejudice against career women.” Feng said Chinese women shoulder more family responsibility. “It is not only about maternity leave; a female employee might only fully get back to work after three to five yeas after having her first child.”
Wang Yixin, a senior employment adviser, said the positive side is that more companies are trying to attract more talents by providing support to career women. “Different from before, it is not only employers choosing employees. Many talents, including professional career women, also choose employers.” said Wang. “According to our survey, many large companies are very open to their employees’ choice of having a second child.”

30. Which of the following shows the structure of the whole text?

When I was in my third year at university, my roommates were American footballers, so I decided to join them. I remember seeing them in front of me wearing pads(防护垫), and thinking they were going to kill me. I got tackled(阻截)so hard that I was frightened. But then I realized it was just physical contact. I’ve been addicted since.
The fundamental aim of the game is to score by running with the ball into, or receiving the ball inside the opposition’s end zone. Every player on the field has a set responsibility. I’m a running back. My job is using my speed, strength and skill to carry the ball and keep running until either I score or I get put down. And it does hurt.
I’ve broken two fingers and hurt my shoulder, but the worst was when I trapped the ligaments(韧带)in the back of my leg. I had to take a year out. But none of that put me off-all I could think was how I was going to come back stronger. Besides training with the team, I now have my gym routine to get fitter, faster and stronger.
Although people think American football is aggressive, there’s much more to it. Every team has its own playbook, outing everyone’s role in different scenes. My playbook was 73 pages long. Words can’t describe how it feels when it all comes together on the field.
American football has changed my life for the better. I’ve learned time management, how to take responsibility for my actions, and how much I treasure being part of a team. Within the four lines of the field, it is physical. Emotions run high. If you’re on the opposing team, you are my enemy. But once the game is done, we’re like a big family.

A. Relaxing B. Challenging C. Boring D. Rewarding

A. the rules of playing American football
B. how painful it is to play the sport
C. how the sport has changed the author’s life
D. the reason for the author playing American football
Spring festival is the most important holiday for Chinese people. 36 The arrangements they have to make for family reunions, buying necessities and preparing food keep them busy throughout the holiday. With the country’s economic development and globalization, as it is celebrated today, Spring Festival has undergone many changes.
___37 People could not get good food they desired in earlier times, but three decades of economic growth has ensured that most people in China can enjoy good meals whenever they want to. Some people suffer from obesity and other health problems associated with extreme eating.
In the past, Spring Festival celebrations were limited to events, such as songs and dances, dragon or lion dances or fireworks. 38 But economic development and urbanization (城市化)seems to have weakened the social links among people. Many, especially those living in cities, are not interested in celebrating the festival with people they hardly know.
___39 In the past, people used to visit relatives and friends with gifts and lots of good wishes. Today, many people especially the youth, use their cell phones or the Internet to send their good wishes and even “gifts”. Some may say this is sign that people have become less caring about their near and dear ones, but we should see this development as a time-and energy-saving exercise brought by the information age.
Also we can see, some people have started praying to God or the Buddha for a career promotion or more chances instead of for a long life or a fortune of their family. However, the number of such people is decreasing now. 40
A. They require the joint efforts of the entire community.
B. But something like that does not apply to society today.
C. Yet no Spring Festival is complete without food.
D. Many Spring Festival customs have changed, too.
E. It is the busiest time of the year for Chinese people.
F. Many of them travel back home and meet friends.
G. That shows people are becoming more reasonable.

Lily is a good friend of me. She is an exchange student from America, that has been studying in China for one and a half month. In order to make full use of her short stay here, Lily works hardly. Because she had not studied any Chinese before coming, so she has much trouble communicating with the local people. She got up early in the morning to study after class. She is so independent while live far from her family and quite helpful to our Chinese. However busy she is, she would rather take her time help us with our English.

One possible version:
I am writing to invite you to join a hiking to Hanyangling Museum, which lies about 10 kilometers away from our school. The hikers consist of almost all the school staff and students. The following are the details.
First, we’ll start off at 8:00 a.m. this Sunday from our school gate, and the whole journey will take one or two hours. Then, we’re to visit the museum at about ten o’clock and next, enjoy the beautiful scenery outdoors, which needs about one and a half hours. After that, having some photos taken and a picnic together is what to end our activities.
We would feel much honored if you could make it.
