One afternoon while preparing dinner in her kitchen, Anne Peters, a 32-year-old American housewife, suddenly had severe pains in her chest accompanied by shortness of breath. Frightened by the thought that she was having a heart attack, Anne screamed for help. Her husband immediately rushed Anne to a nearby hospital where her pains were diagnosed (诊断) as having been caused by panic, and not a heart attack.
More and more Americans nowadays are having panic attacks like the one experienced by Anne Peters. Studies discover that approximately 1.2 million adult individuals are currently suffering from severe and recurrent (重复发作) panic attacks.
There have been a lot of explanations as to the causes of panic attacks. Many claim that psychological stress could be a logical cause, but as yet, no evidence has been found to support this theory. Recent reports have shown there are at least three signs that indicate a person is suffering from a panic attack rather than a heart attack. The first is age. People between the ages of 20 and 30 are more often victims of panic attacks. The second is sex. More women suffer from recurrent panic attacks than men. The third is the variety of symptoms. A heart attack victim often experiences only pain and shortness of breath while a panic attack victim usually suffers more symptoms than the two mentioned.
It is generally agreed that a panic attack does not directly endanger a person’s life. All the same, it can negatively affect a person’s life by making him or her so afraid of having a panic attack in at a public place that he or she may refuse to leave home. Dr. Crocker’s advice to anyone who thinks he is suffering from a panic attack is to consult a doctor for a medical examination to rule out the possibilities of physical illness first. Once it has been confirmed that he or she is, in fact, suffering from a panic attack, the victim should turn to psychologists and doctors.
21. What happened to Anne?
A. Her heart failed.B. She hurt her chest.
C. She had a panic attack.D. Her breath stopped.
22. What can we learn from Paragraph 3?
A. Panic attacks go hand in hand with heart attacks.
B. Old people are more likely to have panic attacks.
C. Panic attacks involve a wider range of symptoms.
D. It is psychological stress that causes panic attacks.
23. What is Dr. Crocker’s advice to victims of panic attack?
A. To have a thorough medical check.
B. To rule out the possibilities of illness.
C. To examine the symptoms on their own.
D. To seek psychological and medical help.
In any given week about four dozen kids visit Dr. David Abramson’s preschool-like clinic at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. And while most of them are barely old enough to speak, because of Dr. Abramson and the groundbreaking medical procedure he has created for a rare and potentially deadly eye cancer called retinoblastoma, they can see.
In the past, if the cancer didn’t respond well to then-available treatments, survival required removing the cancerous eye. The parents, however, will often choose to let their children die with their eyes intact rather than live without them.
“This was a transformational change in our field,” says Dr. Abramson, who began using the technique in 2006. “Overnight, we went from taking out children’s eyes to not taking out children’s eyes.”
But there’s an aspect of the technique that Dr. Abramson doesn’t talk about much, even though it is as inspirational as the technique itself. He refused to patent it. Pursuing a patent, he feared, would have meant the technique would be kept secret for a long period of time while the paperwork was approved by the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office. In the meantime, untold numbers of children would have suffered and perhaps died.
Patent experts wouldn’t make a guess on exactly how much money Dr. Abramson left on the Table by not patenting his procedure. But the purpose of a medical procedure patent is that it allows a doctor to profit by teaching others to perform the procedure.
“I want people to know that when I do something, it’s from my scientific heart, not because I have any financial benefit,” he says. “And ultimately, our goal is to help children. Our driving force in this is not to make money. ”
24. What does the underlined word “them” in Paragraph 2 refer to?
A. Eyes.B. Parents.
C. Children.D. Treatments.
25. Why didn’t Dr. Abramson get the technique patented?
A. He feared that the technique might be kept secret forever.
B. He didn’t like the idea of teaching others about the technique.
C. The application process meant many sufferings and even deaths.
D. The application process would require too much money and time.
26. What is the author’s purpose in writing this article?
A. To introduce an eye cancer.
B. To give credit to Dr. Abramson.
C. To recommend an evolutionary cure.
D. To show the difficulty of a patent application.
Before the end of the year, employees at Ubiquitous Energy, a company in Redwood City, Calif, will gather in a window-lined conference room to stare toward the future. That’s because their new glass windows will offer more than an amazing view of the North California landscape. They will also be able to power the company’s lights, computers and air conditioners.
Several years in the making, Ubiquitous’ energy-producing glass is a remarkable technological achievement. Its power lies in the layers of organic polymers (聚合物) between sheets of glass. As light enters the window,the flow of electrons between the polymer layers creates an electric current, which is then collected by tiny wires in the glass.
“It’s sort of like a transparent computer display run in reverse (反过来),” says Veeral Hardev, director of business development at Ubiquitous Energy. “Instead of electricity being shuttled to different points in a display to light them up, light is producing electricity to be shuttled out of different points in the window.”
Right now the windows produce about a third as much electricity from a given amount of sunlight as the typical solar cells used in roof panels (板).These windows, about half as transparent as ordinary glass, don’t work as well as transparent ones. Hardev says the company is likely to improve the transparency significantly. As for the lower output of electricity, he notes that windows can cover a much greater surface area than a roof, so numerous windows will produce a surprisingly larger amount of electricity than the production from a rooftop full of higher-efficiency solar panels. “You could do both.” says Hardev. “But you’ll get more from the windows. The biggest challenge, he adds, is increasing the windows from less than two square feet currently to about 50 square feet.”
27. What makes the new glass windows special?
A. They can offer an amazing view.
B. They are controlled by computers.
C. They can power the conference room.
D. They can help stare toward the future.
28. What is Hardev trying to explain in Paragraph 3?
A. The source of light.
B. The significance of different points.
C. The similarity of computer and glass.
D. The working principle of energy-producing glass.
29. What can affect power production according to the passage?
A. The transparency of the glass.
B. The quality of the rooftop.
C. The height of the solar panels.
D The thickness of the glass.
30. Which of the following is the best title for the passage?
A. Windows: A New Challenge of Technology
B. Windows: No Longer Just for Letting in the Light
C. Power: A Pressing Problem in the Near Future
D. Power: Not Enough from Rooftop Solar Panels
Many healthcare workers know that washing hands is important to prevent the spread of infectious disease. ___31___ During a study conducted by Nicas and Best at Berkley University, they counted the number of times people touched their face with their hands. ___32___Whether we are aware of our actions or not, most of us can agree that we touch our face with our hands frequently enough.

___35___If you have children, it is even more important to set the example because children are known to learn from adults. Let’s start a good habit of washing hands. As for your friends, don’t be shy about checking to make sure their hands are clean. Asking someone if they have washed their hands is caring.

At Dana’s yard sale, Tim chose a baseball from the toys spread on the card table and asked about the price. Dana told him everything was a quarter except Nezumi,a cotton toy rat. It was gray with some cotton sticking out from the hole where an ear had been torn off. “Nezumi is extra special, so he has ten dollars. He needs a safe new home,” Dana sighed.
Tim laughed saying he didn’t have ten dollars. Dana laughed, too and gave Nezumi to Tim as a free gift because he was her friend. When Tim whispered it was sort of old, Dana said old toys were the best. She then invited Tim to her birthday party the next evening, adding that her parents were giving her a real rat for her birthday. Tim was amazed and asked if it was a live rat. “Of course,” Dana said.
At home, Tim’s mother showed him the gift she had bought for Dana. It was a knitting spool (编织线轴) shaped like a mushroom. Mom said Dana could knit a scarf for her doll. Tim sighed that Dana wasn’t a knitting kind of person but a rat kind of person. Mom laughed after knowing what had happened. Together they drove to the pet store, where Tim searched and searched and selected a clear plastic ball, one in which the rat could run around on the floor safe from cats and dogs. Tim thought of Nezumi’s ear and decided Dana’s new rat would need this ball.
The next day, Dana brought cupcakes to class. When she handed a cupcake to Tim,she asked if Tim brought Nezumi to school as Nezumi liked to ride in backpacks. Tim was at a loss because Nezumi was at home on his bed. Then Dana asked what gift he was giving her. Tim replied it was a surprise. In silence they sat for a while before he heard Dana say her parents were giving her a new bike for her birthday instead of a live rat because they thought rats would bite things.
At home that afternoon, Tim stared at the plastic rat ball.
All of a sudden, he had an idea.

Possible version 1:
I’m Li Hua, a student in your class. I’m writing to ask you for a favor as I’ll attend an English interview by Beijing Foreign Studies University next month.
My first concern is how to express myself fluently in English, as I’m afraid of making mistakes whenever I speak. I also wonder if you can give me some tips on impressing the interviewers. Besides, what other preparations should I make?
Looking forward to your reply.
I’m Li Hua, a student in your class. I’m writing to consult you about my English admission interview by Shanghai International Studies University next month.
Language proficiency is of vital importance for such an interview, so I’m in urgent need of your professional guidance in my oral English. Besides, any constructive advice on interview techniques will be highly appreciated. Finally, if there are any do’s and don’ts in terms of dressing, manners and so on, please do let me know.
One possible version:
At home that afternoon, Tim stared at the plastic rat ball. Wondering about the use of the clear plastic ball if Dana had no rat, he started walking up and down the room with a frown on his face. Mom was surprised and asked him what was happening. Tim told her Dana wasn’t getting a live rat from her parents but a bike. As they were racking their brains to come up with an appropriate gift, Tim turned around and saw Nezumi on his bed.
All of a sudden, he had an idea. He lifted Nezumi and squeezed Nezumi into the plastic ball with great caution so that Nezumi would be safe from cats and dogs. Seeing this, Mom asked Tim whether he was giving Dana an old cotton rat with one ear as a gift, Tim nodded with a smile saying she would definitely like it. Looking at Mom’s confused expression, Tim added that Dana was a Nezumi kind of person who thought old toys were the best.
All of a sudden, he had an idea. “What about buying a live rat for Dana as she likes rats so much?” Tim asked. Mom smiled and gave him a thumbs-up. Again they drove to the pet store, where Tim found some lovely small rats, each in its own cage running around full of energy. Carefully he examined them one by one and finally chose a gray one looking quite like Nezumi. “This certainly is a surprise yet the best!” Tim beamed at it.
