At schools across the United States，students often sit down to cafeteria lunches made from processed foods that are high in fat，sodium，and sugar．But kids at Public School(P．S．)216 in Brooklyn have a different dining experience．Principal Donna Neglia reports that her students love eating flesh fruits and vegetables．
P．S．216 participated in the Edible Schoolyard Project，a nonprofit program founded by Chef Alice Waters in 1995．The program that Waters created helps public schools across the country start on-site gardens and weave principles of healthy eating into the curriculum．Students grow and maintain crops，harvesting the fruits and vegetables for cafeteria meals．
Waters expressed her passion for the principles of the farm-to-table movement．She advised schools to connect with the farmers in their area and change their buying practices when planning meals for students．
Waters has long been inspiring people to care about where their food comes from．In 1993，she put forward the idea of a White House vegetable garden．It was not until 2009 that Michelle Obama started the garden in the backyard of the White House．She and members of the kitchen staff spent hours tending to the garden，often with help from local school children．
“That gave people a sense that she cared about children and cared about where our food comes from，”Waters said，praising the former First Lady’s concern for young people’s health．“We are just building this movement，and it is very exciting．”
“Through the Edible Schoolyard Project，students also learn about the benefits of healthy eating in the classroom．”Neglia said．“P．S．216 is teaching kids about careers in the food industry—such as farming and agriculture，nutrition，food safety，and the restaurant business．”
Similar classes are taking place around the country．So far，the Edible Schoolyard Project has reached more than 1 million students in more than 367 schools．“I'm thinking about the future of the planet，”Waters said．“I'm doing this for our generation．”
4. What’s the purpose of the Edible Schoolyard Project?

C. Waters’ project is not well received by me us schools
D. Waters had no difficulty in starting vegetable garden
7. What can be the best title for the text?

C. Processed foods should be advised D. A chef helps create green schoolyards
【答案】4. B 5. C 6. A 7. D

细节理解题。答案定位在第二段Waters said，praising the former First Lady’s concern for young people’s health．可知Waters对米歇尔•奥巴马所做的事情评价很高，故选C。
推理判断题。根据第一段But kids at Public School(P．S．)216 in Brooklyn have a different dining experience．Principal Donna Neglia reports that her students love eating flesh fruits and vegetables．（但是在布鲁克林公立学校216的孩子们有不同的就餐体验。校长唐娜Neglia报告说，她的学生爱吃水果和蔬菜肉。）以及第二段P．S．216 participated in the Edible Schoolyard Project可知P．S．216属于Edible Schoolyard计划的开拓者，故选A。
All across the nation，in Americans’backyards and garages and living rooms，wild animals kept as pets live side by side with their human owners．It’s believed that more exotic animals live in American homes than are cared for in American zoos．The exotic-pet business has drawn criticism from animal welfare advocates and wildlife conservationists alike，who say it’s not only dangerous to bring wildlife into households but it’s cruel and criminal．Yet the issue is far from black or white．
The term exotic pet has no firm definition．It can refer to any wildlife kept in human households or simply to a pet that’s more unusual than the common dog or cat．Privately owning exotic animals is currently permitted in a handful of states with no restrictions in America．Adam Roberts of Born Free USA keeps a running database of deaths and injuries caused by exotic-pet ownership：In Connecticut a 55-year-old woman’s face was permanently disfigured by her friend’s lifelong pet monkey；in Ohio an 80-year-old man was attacked by a 200-pound kangaroo；in Nebraska a 34-year-old man was strangled(勒)to death by his pet snake．And that list does not include the number of people who become sick from coming into contact with zoonotic(动物传染的) diseases．
Some people see wild animals as pets as a way to connect with the natural world．Other exotic-pet owners say they are motivated by a desire to preserve threatened species．They believe climate change and human population growth could wipe out a species in record time，so having a backup population is a good idea．
But some groups like Born Free USA and the World Wildlife Fund gay that captive breeding(圈养)of endangered species by private owners—whether for commercial，conservation，or educational reasons—serves only to continue a booming market for exotic animals．That，in turn，results in a greater risk to animals still living in their natural habitat．
8. Which word can replace the phrase“far from black or white”in Paragraph 1?
A. contradictory B. ridiculous
C. controversial D. universal
9. Why does the writer list some deaths and injuries in the text?
A. To give us a clear and firm definition of exotic pets．
B. To show keeping exotic animals can be very dangerous．
C. To prove humans can not be infected by animal diseases．
D. To tell us it’s illegal to have exotic-pet ownership in USA．
10. What’s the main idea of Paragraph 3?
A. The reasons for keeping exotic animals as pets．
B. Worries about the endangered wild animals．
C. The differences between people who keep exotic pets．
D. The disadvantages of privately owning exotic animals．
11. The last paragraph of the text is intended to_______．
A. introduce some animal protection groups
B. argue against keeping exotic animals in captivity
C. warn people of the danger of animals being caught
D. prove captive breeding can encourage exotic-pet business
【答案】8. C 9. B 10. A 11. B
词义猜测题。上句说The exotic-pet business has drawn criticism from animal welfare advocates and wildlife conservationists alike，who say it’s not only dangerous to bring wildlife into households but it’s cruel and criminal．说外来宠物业务引起了动物福利倡导者和野生动物物种保护者的批评，他们把野生动物带入家庭不仅很危险，而且是残酷和罪恶的。由此推知这个问题有争议，“far from black or white”意思是有争议的，A. contradictory矛盾的；B. ridiculous荒谬的；C. controversial有争议的；D. universal普遍的，故选C。
推理判断题。答案定位在第二段Adam Roberts of Born Free USA keeps a running database of deaths and injuries caused by exotic-pet ownership（Adam Roberts记录着因养宠物而导致的死亡和受伤情况）以及结合下面惨痛的事例，可知作者在文中列举了一些伤亡事件是为了表明饲养野生动物是非常危险的，故选B。
写作意图题。答案定位在最后一段That，in turn，results in a greater risk to animals still living in their natural habitat．（反过来，结果在一个更大的风险中，动物仍然生活在它们的自然栖息地。）由此推断出最后一段目的在于反对圈养野生动物，故选B。
The United States Postal Service(LISPS)is offering a way to people who are interested in seeing tomorrow’s mail today．The postal service will send consumers images(图像)of their letters，magazines and other mail before they arrive．The new service is called Informed Delivery．It is an attempt to remain competitive in an ever—changing world．
Postal service officials say the increased use of email，digital messaging services and social media has made it difficult to stay relevant．David Rupert is a media relations specialist who spoke about the competition the agency now faces．Whether you turn on a television or your computer，or people come to your door with different products and services，all of those are competing for consumers’time and energy，he said．
Interested users are first required to sign up for Informed Delivery．Once registered，the consumer receives a daily email with virtual(虚拟)images of letters or other things to be delivered．The US Postal Service says it can especially help those who have a mailbox at their local post office，so they know when to get their mail：
Another postal offering is a service that seeks to make advertising-related mail-often called junk mail—more fun．The service uses virtual and augmented reality(虚拟现实和增强现实)to let consumers interact with their junk mail．Many companies put special coding on their advertising，which can give users an interactive experience．Some companies even put virtual reality eyeglasses in the mail to make their ads come to life．Consumers have mixed reactions to virtual and augmented reality advertising．“You can find some good things within junk mail．It is a good idea．We’11 see how it works，”Postal service user Victor Teah said．But Jocelyn Coatney doesn’t think it would change her mind about junk mail．“For some，that might be fun．But for me，it would be useless，”she said．
12. What does the underlined word“they”in the first paragraph refer to?
A. The images of the mail．
B. Informed Delivery services．
C. Letters，magazines and other mail．
D. The traditional advertising—related mail．
13. Why does the US Postal Service create Informed Delivery?
A. To make people interested in mails．
B. To improve its competitiveness．
C. To be relevant to other services．
D. To make a great fortune．
14. Which of the following best summarizes Paragraph 2?
A. The fall of the US Postal Service．
B. The replacement of the mail service．
C. The potential market for the new service．
D. The challenge the US Postal Service faces．
15. Why does the author write what Victor and Jocelyn said at the end of the text?
A. To prove virtual and augmented reality is helpful．
B. To show us many users are using advertising—related mail．
C. To give examples of users’mixed reactions to junk mail．
D. To wish virtual and augmented reality advertising to work better．
【答案】12. C 13. B 14. D 15. C
推理判断题。The postal service will send consumers images(图像)of their letters，magazines and other mail before they arrive．这句话的意思是在它们到达之前，邮政服务将向用户发送他们信件的图像，杂志和其他邮件。由此推断出“they”指的是信件、杂志和其他邮件，故选C。

China creates Harvest Festival for farmers
Recently China has set up a special day for farmers to celebrate the yearly harvest．It is the first festival ___41___ (create)by China specially for the country’s farmers．
“The country will celebrate the Chinese Farmers’Harvest Festival on the autumnal equinox(秋分)of China lunar calendar from this year，”said Han Changbin，minister of agriculture and rural affairs，at ___42___ press conference．Autumnal equinox usually ___43___(fall)between September 22 and 24， ___44___ the country’s agricultural harvest season．
The festival will give greater ___45___ (important)to rural work and push for ___46___ (fast) development of agriculture and rural areas．
A variety of celebrations will be organized ___47___ (display)the agricultural harvest，rural technology achievements and farmers’creativeness．Farmers ___48___ (encourage)to involve in activities related to their work and life，___49___ waste should be avoided in the celebrations．
The rural economy is a key part of China’s efforts to develop a modernized economy．By ___50___ (develop)its vast rural areas，China expects to see a strong agricultural sector，a beautiful countryside and wealthy farmers．
42. a 43. falls
44. during 45. importance
46. faster 47. to display
48. are encouraged
考查非谓语动词。create 与the first festival之间是被动关系，用过去分词作定语，所以填created。
I like the Spring Festival，during that I usually enjoy myself greatly．All the family members will get together to have a big dinner．We also visit our relatives or friends．To my great joy，my grandparent always give me some lucky money．Last year，I spent the spring Festival happily as usual，but one thing made me surprising．My grandparents didn’t give me 1ucky money at the first! It seemed that they had forgotten about them．Seeing I was puzzled，my grandpa laughed．Several minutes late，my mobile phone received a message．It was my grandpa sent lucky money to me secret through WeChat！What modern and humorous my grandpa was!
第九处： secret改成 secretly
【详解】第一处：考查定语从句。这里含有一个定语从句，the Spring Festival是先行词，介词+关系代词引导的定语从句，指物，只能用which，所以that改成which。
第六处：考查代词。指代上文的some lucky money，是不可数名词，用it，所以them改成it。
第八处：考查强调句。把It was去掉，这个句子仍然成分完整，语义清晰，所以这是一个强调句。强调句的基本结构是：it is / was + 被强调部分 + that + 句子的其他成分，如果被强调的部分是人，也可以用who代替that，所以grandpa后面加who或that。
第十处：考查感叹句。what和how都能引导感叹句，what后面接名词，而how之后接形容词， modern and humorous是形容词，所以what改成how。
