There have been numerous wake-up calls about the effects of climate change on sea life. As ocean waters heat up, they are making coral lose color. Growing levels of carbon dioxide are making seawater more acidic. Now climate change is starting to affect fish's sense of smell, a phenomenon that will worsen in the coining years if global warming continues growing.
A sense of smell is what the fish can't do without. They use it to find food, detect upcoming danger, escape from predators（捕食者），find safe environments, and even recognize one another. “Future levels of carbon dioxide can have large negative effects on the sense of smell of fish, which can affect fish population numbers and the entire ecosystem,” said an ocean life expert. “This can be prevented, but we must reduce carbon emissions now before it's too late.”
Experts believe that about half of carbon dioxide emissions produced by human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels-have over time ended up in the oceans, lowering the pH of seawater, and making it more acidic.
Researchers found that sea bass（鲈鱼）exposed to the more acidic conditions swam less and were less likely to react when encountering the smell of a predator. Also, they were more likely to “freeze"， a sign of anxiety, according to the study. They found the longer the fish were in high CO2, the worse they got along. The researchers also measured the ability of the fish to detect certain odors（气味）in different levels of acidity（酸度）.The study showed that their ability to detect and respond to some odors connected with food and threatening situations was more strongly affected than other odors.
The research is important because 20 percent of the protein consumed by 3 million people comes from seafood, and about 50 percent of this comes from fish caught from the wild. “Therefore, increases in carbon dioxide in the ocean have the potential to affect all fish species, including those that many people rely on food and livelihood,“ the ocean life expert warned.
28. What do we know from the first paragraph?
A. Global warming will continue in the coming years.
B. Global warming is starting to affect fish's sense of smell.
C. The temperature of seawater is rising to a dangerous level.
D. Few people are worried about the impact of climate change.
29. Why does the author attach great importance to the sense of smell of fish?
A. It can affect the survival of fish.
B. Fish can stay safe with their sense of smell.
C. Fish rely on their sense of smell to find food.
D. Fish can find each other by their sharp noses.
30. Why does the author mention human activities in the text?
A. He wants to blame human beings for global warming.
B. He wants to criticize human beings for overuse of fossil fuels.
C. He concludes that human activities can destroy the sense of smell of fish.
D. He concludes that human activities can improve the ecosystem of the ocean.
31. What is the author's attitude toward the future of fish industry?
A. Satisfied.B. Enthusiastic.
C. Disappointed.D. Concerned.
ByteDance（今日头条）Group's TikTok, an overseas version of Chinese short video sharing app Douyin, faces an existential crisis in the United States, as murmurs of a “crackdown（强制取缔from the White House forced the Chinese company to engage in talks on selling its US business to Microsoft.
TikTok is the fastest-growing registered global mobile internet app, with more than 100 million users, and its rapid growth, especially in the US, is seen as a threat to Facebook. The US government has long viewed globally competitive Chinese high-tech companies including Huawei as a threat and done whatever it could to crack down on（打击）them in the name of “national security”.
The US government has not introduced any specific policy against TikTok, only threatened it through a number of unclear statements.
According to the latest media reports, Microsoft is prepared to press ahead with the negotiations to take over TikTok's US operations and complete the negotiations by Sept 15, following talks between Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and US President Donald Trump.
This means that TikTok will have to hand its fate over to some unpredictable power, and even have to sell its assets without the option of setting a price.
The US government has failed to find a reasonable legal excuse to deal with TikTok. All private data of TikTok's US users are stored in the US and are unlikely to be transferred. Considering the US government is trying to deal with TikTok in a political way, TikTok should consider incorporating（合并）the dispute into the US legal process to assert（坚持）its legal rights and interests.
TiKTok's core value lies in its unique algorithms, a product of artificial intelligence that represents the expertise of Chinese engineers and programmers with high-value intellectual property.
The US government's move, which has forced ByteDance to sell TikTok to a US company, is similar to a forced technology transfer and an example of the US' open seizure of Chinese intellectual property.
If ByteDance sells TikTok to a US company for “security reasons"， that would set a dangerous precedent, motivating other countries where TikTok operates to follow the US administration's example and cause a chain reaction.
ByteDance is a young Chinese private company that cannot deal with a political game played by the US. But as a Chinese company that has gone global, ByteDance has reasons to take up legal means to defend its legal rights. The Chinese government can also consider examining whether the technology transfer in the deal violates China's law and harms the country's national interests.
32. What is the most valuable as for TikTok?
A. Its global popularity.
B. Its artificial intelligence.
C. Its registered global mobile internet app.
D. Its private data of TikTok's worldwide users.
33. Why does the American government force the Chinese company to hand over TikTok's US operations to a US company?
A. Out of so-called political reasons.B. Out of so-called debt reasons.
C. Out of so-called technical reasons.D. Out of so-called security reasons.
34. What does the underlined word “seizure“ probably mean in Para. 8?
A. An untrue spoken statement about someone.
B. The use of legal authority to take sth from sb.
C. The crime of stealing sth from a person or place.
D. The act of trying to hurt somebody using physical violence.
35. What can be the best title for the news report?
A. TikTok must defend its rights legally
B. TikTok is seen as a threat to Facebook
C. ByteDance has to sell TikTok to a US company
D. ByteDance agrees to transfer technology

假如你是两周前从电动车上摔下来并且右腿流血较多的高三学生李华，目前你已康复。你 打算写一封感谢信给当时曾经帮助过你的某公司职员David的经理Mr. Green,表达你对 David的感激。
Dear Mr Green,
I'm Li Hua,
Once there was a ship travelling on the rough sea and on the ship there was a pair of couple. All of a sudden, the ship met with an accident and the couple had no choice but to run to the lifeboat without delay. After reaching there, they realized that there was space only for one person. At that very moment, the husband pushed his wife behind him and jumped onto the lifeboat himself, leaving his wife standing on the sinking ship, shouting something desperately to her husband, eyes filled with tears.”
The teacher stopped her story-telling and asked her students, “Guys, guess what it was that she shouted.”
Most students answered, “I hate you!”
After listening to all this reply, the teacher glanced through the whole class again and noticed that there was a boy sitting silently throughout. Then she asked him the same question.
The boy answered, “I believe she would have shouted — Take care of our child.”
Listening to his remarks, the teacher was surprised and asked the boy doubtfully, “Have you heard of this story before?”
Shaking his head, the boy said softly and sadly, “No, I haven’t. But that’s what my mother said to my father before she died of a deadly disease.”
Moved and feeling sad, the teacher replied, “Your answer is absolutely right!”
Then she continued, “Let’s take up the story. The ship sank eventually and the husband went home and brought up their daughter alone. Many years later after the death of the man, their daughter was tidying up all his belongings when she found his diary. In his diary she found that when her parents were on the ship, her mother had already been diagnosed (诊断) with advanced illness and at the critical moment, the father rushed to the only chance of survival.”
In his diary, the man mentioned he wished to sink to the ocean with his wife but for their daughter he had to live.
The story was finished and the class was silent.
