As the mother drove along the road, she saw her little girl walking alone in the rain. To her great surprise, she found that when a lightning came, her daughter stopped, looked up and smiled. Another lightning came and then another followed. With each lightning, the little girl stopped, looked up and smiled.
Inside the car, the mother asked her daughter, “What were you doing?

The right name is important in the business world. All you have to do is think of the names for some of the products you buy every day and you’ll agree that the name and the product are connected in the everyone’s mind.
In many countries, successful trade or brand names are protected by law. This is so that other companies cannot make a product and, in fact, be buying something different. Businesses register a company or a product name with the government. In fact, more than 1,000 product and company names are registered every hour. Many companies spend a lot of money to find the right name for their products. A good example of this is. In the car industry. Some successful names for cars have powerful associations （联系）.The Ford Mustang and the Jaguar are only two examples of choosing the names of animals that are fast and strong.
When a U. S company decides to sell its product in another country, it has to make sure that the product name translates properly. When Coca-Cola introduced its soft drink to China, it looked for the right name. It wanted a name that would do two things. One was to present its image（形象）in Chinese and the second was to be close to its first brand name—Coke. It took some efforts before finding the right word —which sounds similar and translates as “happiness in the mouth”. Asian company names are not new to the United States. The brand names of Samsung and Sony have been successful. Finding the right brand name is a big business. Asian companies that sell to foreign markets pay to find a name that will connect with its customers. There are even naming companies that specialize in inventing product names. These companies can charge （要价）up to $100,000 a word for their creations. But it’s worth it. Successful companies know how important the right brand names are for their development.

解析：本题考查used to结构的反义疑问句。由于前半部分为肯定且主语为Tom’s grandfather，所以反义疑问部分为否定加第三人称主格。
解析：本题考查used to结构的肯定句及一般现在时。used to后面加动词原形，横线后为形容词shy,所以应为be。第二个空前有now表示现在的状态，应用一般现在时。由于横线后为long hair同时主语为第三人称，所以应该填has.
解析：考查used to结构肯定句的用法。used to后加动词原形，故答案为B。
解析：形容词的考查。当动词转化为形容词时，以ed结尾的形容词描述人的感受。两个空前的主语均为人most of the girls和Lucy，故答案选A。
解析：考查固定搭配。pay attention to表示关注、注意。
解析：宾语从句的考查。宾语从句在选择时应注意语序、特殊疑问词和时态。本题中由于B、D选项中含有助动词为疑问句，故语序不对。主句为I didn’t understand，时态为一般过去式，故从句时态也应为一般过去时，故选C。
解析：下文提到另一位教授读了早前的研究（another professor read about the earlier study.），所以应该是25年后。故选A。
解析：search for, look for都表示寻找，see表示看见，find out 表示找出，查明。根据语境应选B。
23. 答案： A
解析：细节题。由最后一段“Linda is a very confident girl and she is really kind”可知。
解析：细节题。由第二段Then I moved to America with my family及When I went to college in New York, Ana and I shared the same room可知。
解析：细节题。由文章第一句话“A little girl walked to and from school every day”可知。
26. 答案： D
解析：细节题。由文章第二段第一句话“The mother of the little girl felt worried that her daughter would be afraid and that lightning might frighten(惊吓) her child.”可知。
解析：本题是细节理解题。考察学生对具体信息的寻找和理解能力。本题难度适中。根据题干，我们能够容易地在文中找出类似的句子，即第二段第一句话。而不难看出，第二句话就是对第一句话的解释“This is so that other companies cannot make a product that looks like another.”(这是为了其他公司不能都制造一款看起来很像的产品。)因此只有选项D的意思符合。
解析：本题是细节分析题。考察学生对信息的寻找和分析能力。本题较难。通过文章的最后一句话。“Successful companies know how important the right brand names are for their development.”（成功的公司知道正确的品牌名称是对他们的发展有多重要）。因此确定选B.
选项A，在文章最后倒数第三句话“These companies can charge up to$100,000 a word for their creations. But it’s worth it。”（这些公司为他们的创意，一个字要价10万$，但是是值得的）
选项D，在文章第二段最后两句话。Some successful names for cars have powerful associations. 文中的范围是some，选项D的范围太广，故而不能选。
选项D，“选择品牌名称的方法”，这个观点只是在文章举例说明品牌与产品的关系中出现2次。（The Ford Mustang and the Jaguar这两款汽车的命名，以及 Coca-Cola的中文翻译）但是并不能完全涵盖文章主要大意，故而是错误的。
解析：固定搭配 take pride in，对……感到自豪。
41．答案：He used to be afraid of the dark.
解析：考查used to 的肯定句的用法，即没有人称和数的变化。
42.答案：She didn’t use to wear glasses.
解析：考查used to结构的否定句，即 didn’t use to do sth.
43. 答案：Did Paula use to be really quiet?
解析：考查used to结构的一般疑问句，即 Did +主语+ use to…?
44. 答案：He is no longer interested in study.
解析：考查no longer和not…any more的区别。no longer用在句中, be动词的后面，实意动词的前面。not…anymore使用时，not在句中与相应的助动词或be动词构成否定，anymore放在句末。
45.答案：What did you use to like doing?
46. cause 47. absent 48. influenced 49. attention 50. proud
My friend Mike has changed a lot in the last few years. He used to be thin and short, but now he is tall and strong. Besides, he wears glasses now. As for personality, he used to be quiet, but now he is outgoing. I think the changes in his appearance and personality are because the changes of his hobbies. Mike used to watch TV and he seldom played outside. However, at present, he is interested in playing basketball and reading books. Exercising and reading make him more energetic and outgoing. I am so glad to see the good changes and I believe my friend Mike will be healthier and smarter.
