Many of us spend part of each day surrounded by strangers, whether on our daily commute(上下班往返）， or sitting in park or cafe. But most of them remain just that-strangers. However, new evidence has shown that plucking up(鼓起）the courage to strike up conversation might be good for our health.
Nicholas Epley from the University of Chicago and Juliana Schroeder from the University of California are behavioral(行为的）scientists. They wanted to know whether solitude is a more positive experience than interacting with strangers, or if people misunderstand the consequences of distant social connections. They found that many people feel uncomfortable and frightened talking to others and their research suggested that when we make an initial conversation"we consistently underestimate(低估）how much a new person likes us. " It seems we think that all the things could go wrong and why someone wouldn't want to talk with us.
Their research involved an experiment with a group of Chicago commuters and found that"every participant in our experiment who actually tried to talk to a stranger found the person sitting next to them was happy to chat. "From this and other research, the conclusion is that connecting with strangers is surprisingly pleasant and it has a positive impact on our well-being. It's true that talking can make you feel happier and happiness can lead to better mental health.
However, if you're an introvert(性格内向者），the thought of speaking to someone new might make you anxious. But the American research found"both extroverts(性格外向者）and introverts are happier when they are asked to behave in an extroverted manner. "So maybe, if you're a loner, it's time to come out of your shell and make some small talk with a stranger-it could be the beginning of a new friendship.
24. What does the underlined word"solitude"in paragraph 2 mean?
A. Being calm. B. Being pleasant. C. Being alone. D. Being healthy.
25. Why might we not want to speak to a stranger?
A. Because we don't trust a new person.
B. Because we can't find a common topic.
C. Because we like distant social connections.
D. Because we feel the stranger may dislike us.

D. Behaving in polite manner.
27. Which of the following is the best title for the text?

＂I have cancer. "Mom said and held me in a tight hug. I could feel her chest shaking as she tried not to cry but failed.
For all of my twenty-four years, my mom had been supportive. Strength and protection had always flowed from her to me. Now I knew it would have to flow the other way.
Mom didn't stay down for long. After the shock of breast-cancer, she armed herself with a notebook and a pen and a thousand questions for the doctors. She took notes on white blood cell counts and medications（药物）with long names as though she were studying for entrance exams into medical school. "The not-knowing is the worst. "she said.
The operation was successful. The chemo(化疗）was the harder part. I went with Mom to every chemo treatment. She rarely complained, though her hair was gone and her toenails and fingernails fell out one by one. She joked that she could save money on nail polish and put it toward the doctor bills, even though she never wore nail polish. "Cancer can take my hair, my nails, my health, my very life. But it can't take my smile. "Mom said.
Mom learned to share her fears with me, and it formed an even deeper bond between us. Yet I am certain there were fears she didn't share because she was still protecting me-worries she only shared with Dad. Even in the darkest hours, she would just joke about the cancer. Mom always said, "When you look your greatest fear in the eye and laugh at it, you take away some of its power. "

Though leaders from the International Olympic Committee(IOC)have announced a first-of-its-kind postponement of the Tokyo Summer Olympics because of the corona virus epidemic, people all over the world are still concerned about its preparations. Officials from the Tokyo Olympic Committee say they are sparing no effort and announce the Tokyo Summer Olympics in 2021 is going green. The 5, 000 medals Japan has made are more special than most.
One novel focus of the Tokyo Olympics is to be"sustainable”－to avoid using too many natural resources, so that the games are easy on the environment. As part of this goal, the organizers decided to make all of the Olympic medals out of metal recycled from old electronics.
Almost all electronics are made with small amounts of"precious metals", like gold and silver. But collecting enough of these metals to make 5, 000 medals was a huge challenge. That's because the amount of metal in each device is tiny. It would take about 20, 000 cell phones to get just l kilogram of gold.
Beginning in April 2017, the organizers placed collection boxes around the country, and asked people to turn in their old electronic devices. Soon people began to respond to the initiative(倡导），turning in smart phones, digital cameras, handheld games, and laptops. At first, collection went slowly, but soon more and more areas began to take part. By the end, 1, 621 local governments had helped out with the collection process.
Then came the job of breaking those devices down into smaller pieces. After eing taken apart and sorted, the small electronics were smelted(熔炼）to get all the gold, silver, and bronze elements. This is a tricky job, which calls for careful attention and good skill. It's also dangerous, because some of the metals and other things
aren't safe for people to touch or breathe.
By the end of March, 2019, the organizers had hit their targets of getting enough metal for the medals. They had collected around 32 kilograms of gold, 4, 100 kilograms of silver and 2, 200 kilograms of bronze. And now all the 5, 000 medals are available for the would-be winners.

D. They are designed uniquely.
33. What does Paragraph 4 mainly tell us?
A. The difficulty of making the medals.
B. The initiative to recycle used smart phones.
C. The classification of the collected devices.
D. The process of collecting old electronics.
34. The underlined word "tricky" in Paragraph 5 means"
A. creative B. demanding C. well-paid D. time-consuming
35. What's the purpose of Tokyo's way of making the medals?
A. To advocate sustainable use of resources.
B. To promote the spirit of Olympic Games.

People are always denying their pain. They don't want to recognize it because they want to be sensed as okay, especially at this age. People are so concerned with being cool and being popular that they don't want to be the person with problems. 36
Talking about matters will help you deal with what is bringing you down. Figuring out what makes you feel painful can be very beneficial because a lot of the time we are so mixed up with our emotions that we need to sort them out with others' help. 37 Find someone you trust and open your heart to them. Talk to an adult, a tutor or your parent. You'd be surprised to learn how kind people will be. 38 They are willing to make sure you are okay and if you're not, they want to do whatever they can to help you.
39 It's always okay to have secrets and things you simply want to keep to yourself. However, if something is really disturbing, meaning that you can't stop thinking about it, and that it is really bothering you, then you have to try to open up and talk about it. If you really don't want anyone to know, but still feel the need to talk about the issue and get help, there are hot lines in your area that you can call. The worst thing is to suffer alone. 40 Remember that you deserve to be heard and you deserve to be helped.
A. Your silence is not making you stronger
B. A calm heart allows you to think logically.
C. It's not always possible to just rely on ourselves.
D. You don't have to share everything in your heart.
E. They worry about you and they just want the best for you.
F. People like to talk to you and share with you their inner world.
G. However, what you choose to run away from will finally catch up with you.

第一节 应用文写作（满分 15分）
In our kitchen, there was a wooden table and three chairs-one for Pa, one for Ma, and one for me. I tried not to look at Pa's empty place. Pa had gone to the city to look for work. He had been gone for a long time.
Every night, lying awake in bed, I waited for the train to stop, waited for the sound of his work boots dropping on the step, and waited for his voice calling, “I'm home!"
Every night, as I lay there, I stared at the window and the curtains Ma made from empty flour sacks(面粉袋）。Sometimes the train stopped-for someone else' s Pa coming home. Not mine, not yet.
Every night, Ma came to kiss me good-night-after the train had gone by. She had been listening, too. “Go to sleep. Your Pa will be home soon. Maybe for Thanksgiving. ”
How could I be thankful without my Pa?
I went to sleep with the sound of train wheels in my head, whispering, “Maybe tomorrow, maybe tomorrow. ”
One morning, the smell of coffee woke me. I ran into the kitchen. There he was!Pa lifted me onto his shoulders. "How's my boy?You've gotten so big that I can barely lift you up anymore. ”
He put me down, and I stared at the two sacks on the table. One said FLOUR. I tried reading the other: S-U-G-A-R. Pa whistled admiringly and winked(眨眼）at me. Ma didn't say no when Pa sprinkled(撒）a bit of that precious white sugar on my bread.
Ma said, "I'm going to bake a pie for your Pa's homecoming dinner. Go downstairs, Jimmy, and bring me that jar of apples. "She smiled at me with a"mind now"look.
There was no need. I knew how to be careful. It was the last jar-the one we had been saving and saving to welcome Pa home. "When Pa comes home, there' ll be apple pic. "I could hardly remember what pies tasted like.
I took the steps two at a time. .
Seeing this, I felt like crying.
