ASoon they began to 16 about the stress in work and life.
The old teacher went to the kitchen and returned 17 a pot of coffee and different kinds of cups: glass, plastic; nice-looking ones, ugly ones; some 18 , some cheap. He told them to help 19 to the coffee.
When all the students were holding a cup of coffee, the teacher said: “I’ve found that all the nice-looking expensive cups were 20 and you’ve left behind the ugly and cheap 21 . While it is 22 for you to take only the best for yourselves, your problems and stress come along.

YThat way, you’ll want to spend more time using the language. One way to do this is to watch amusing TV shows in English.
Chuck is an action comedy TV series about a character named Chuck. One day Chuck receives a classified (机密) e-mail from an old friend who is working at the CIA. The e-mail contains an entire database filled with classified U.S. government information. Chuck is the kind of person who naturally commits large amounts of information to memory, and all of the spy secrets are accidentally embedded in his mind. So Chuck becomes the most important person to the government. As a result, Chuck hides his identity (身份) and works as a computer expert at a store called Buy More. There are two secret agents who protect Chuck from danger. To ensure his safety, they also take undercover jobs as his girlfriend and a store employee.
Without a doubt, watching Chuck is going to provide you with hours of rib-tickling laughter while you learn English.

It was once thought that only time could mend a broken heart, but now scientists think taking a couple of aspirin might be the best way to get over a break-up.
Previous studies have shown that people experience feelings of romantic rejection (失恋) in the same way that they experience physical pain. And Psychology Professor Water Michel, of Columbia University, also believes that the psychological pain of ending a relationship is similar to physical pain, and should be treated like any other injury. “When we speak about rejection experiences in terms of physical pain, it is not just a metaphor – the broken heart and emotional pain really do hurt in a physical way," he said. “When you look at a picture of the one who broke your heart, you experience a pain in a similar area of the brain which is activated when you burn your arm. ”
Research shows that people who are given a simple painkiller, like aspirin, are able to handle feelings of rejection better than those given a placebo (安慰剂) .
‘Take two aspirins and call me next morning’ would be a cold-hearted response to a friend’s late-night report of fresh heartbreak, but it has a solid basis in the research.
34. The aspirin is a kind of _________.
A. wine B. fruit C. dessert D. medicine
35. According to the passage, maybe taking aspirins can ______.
A. mend a broken heart B. burn your arm
C. make people feel pain D. help people get over a break-up.
36. The underlined word “those” in Paragraph 3 means ______.
A. pains B. hearts C. people D. areas
37. The best summary for the passage would be “Broken-hearted? _______________ !”.
A. Just take an aspirin or two B. Just call me at any time
C. Just wait for a long time D. Just eat as much as you can
Imagine a world where air pollution is no longer a problem. Clean air is all around us. People don’t have to worry about polluting the air every time they take the bus.
A city in California has got some new buses. They cost $490,000 each. The new buses are different from the old ones. These new buses are better for the environment. They are called hybrid buses. They run on diesel (柴油的) and electric power. This will help keep the air cleaner.
The man drove the new bus on Wednesday and noticed a difference right away. “I get to have clean air for a change”, said driver Melvin Day. “I’m smelling diesel all day long when I drive the old ones.”
The company that builds the buses had many good things to say about them. For example, they said they use a lot less fuel (燃料). They also said that they are 90% cleaner for the environment. The buses are very quiet, too.The buses have a diesel engine in the back and batteries (电池) on top. When the engine starts up, it is powered by electricity. Then the diesel power takes over.Over time the city would like to use the new hybrid buses instead of all 50 of their buses. They hope to do this over the next three years. The city will give money to help buy the new kind of buses.
One other bit of good news: the price of the bus ticket will not rise because of the new buses.
38. Why are the new buses better for the environment?
A. Because they’re cheaper than the old ones. B. Because they’re very quiet.
C. Because they run on diesel and electric power. D. Because they are new.
39. The underlined word “hybrid” in Paragraph 2 means ______ in Chinese.
A. 混合动力的 B. 前卫的 C. 新颖的 D. 节约的
40. Which one is NOT true about the new buses?
A. The buses are very quiet. B. They use a lot less fuel.
C. They will keep the air cleaner. D. They can drive faster than the old ones.
41. How many buses does the city have now?
A. 50 B. 90 C. 45 D. 490
