When young people begin to live independently, home-hunting can be difficult. But they would do
well to remember that a new choice is available --- micro-homes.
Fondly called “tiny houses,” these houses have all living necessities in a small package, including
kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Generally under 50 square meters, most tiny houses can hold just one or
two people though some claim the space for more. What’s lost in size is not lost in design(设计) as these
homes are often quite modern in design. Besides an attractive appearance, tiny houses can also have practical features(特点). Making the best
of urban space, the 72-to-122-centimeter-wide Keret House in Warsaw, the world’s narrowest home, filled in an alley(小巷). The home Ecocapsule uses solar power, wind power and rainwater collection to enable
its owner to live practically anywhere.
Although micro-homes are attractive, there are a few disadvantages to consider before getting
comfortable on a minicouch. Moving into a tiny house, you should throw aw ay unnecessary things. It is also mostly impossible to invite guests. And finally, a micro-home is likely a temporary(暂时的) living
choice for most people since they will probably start families and own more things.
Though the limitation will scare some, there is usually a benefit. A small size results in low prices and
small bills, making tiny houses easier to save up for. And though you won’t have many things around the
house, it makes it easy and simple to keep it clean. Micro-homes are also eco-friendly, which can’t be
matched by other homes. They probably aren’t for everyone or forever, but when it comes to your next (or
first) home, they could be just what you need.
54. What can be learnt about micro-homes from Paragraph 2?
A. People can’t take a package into the tiny houses.
B. All of the houses can hold more than two people.
C. These houses are convenient though tiny in size.
D. Such houses are poorly designed due to the small size.
55. The author develops Paragraph 3 mainly _____.
A. by examples
B. by comparisons
C. by order in space
D. by causes and ef fects
56. Micro-homes are especially suitable for _____.
A. a young person who has many things B. a person who doesn’t have much money
C. a couple who want to protect environment D. a family hoping to settle down in a city
57. What can be the best title for the text?
A. East or west, home is the best.
B. Micro-homes --- more than tiny!
C. Home-hunting --- no easy matter!
D. Tiny or large, this is a choice
Parents of very young children know this: You catch your child in the act of stealing the cookie--the
evidence of candy written on his or her face. However, you get a wide-eyed denial: “I didn’t do it!” Learning to tell the truth, even at the risk of punishment, is an important part of moral (道德)
development, and new research suggests it can take seven or more years for kids to get there.
Early 2017 Professor Craig E. Smith published a study. He and his workmates chose 48 children
between four and nine years of age. They told the kids a story about a boy or girl doing something wrong,
such as taking a classmate’s toy or candy, and then either lying about the wrongdoing to a parent or confessing (承认) it. In each case, they asked the children, How would the child feel? How would the
The children’s answers were generally divided according to age, which is in agreement with the
stolen candy, lying and getting unpunished. They imagined the parent in the study would be angry with the child who confessed. However, the seven-to-nine-year-olds were more likely (可能的) to think the child
would feel better confessing the crime and that the parent would have positive (积极的) feelings towards a
Smith says, “Kids of all ages who expect that a parent would feel happy about a child’s confession
are more likely to tell the truth rather than lie. Reward the honesty even if you feel you must punish the
wrong action.” He adds, what parents can learn from these studies is to listen calmly without getting angry
right away when their child confesses.
58. What does the underlined word “denial” in Paragragh 1 mean?
59. What does Paragraph 2 mainly tell us?
A. Kids can’t tell “right” from “wrong”.
B. It takes time for kids to learn to tell the truth.
C. It’s wrong to punish kids for telling the truth.
D. All the kids are willing to confess to a bad act.
60. What did Smith and his workmates find in their study?
A. Older kids are more likely than younger children to confess to a bad act.
B. Younger children are more likely than older kids to confess to a bad act.
C. The four-to-five-year-olds would feel better confessing the crime
D. The 7-to-9-year-olds thought parents would be angry with their confessions.
61. According to Professor Smith, what can parents learn from these studies?
A. Parents should at once punish the children who lied.
B. Parents should tell children the wrongness of lying.
C. Parents should never get angry after their children’s confessions.
D. Parents should show positive feeling about their children’s confessions.
Every boy wants to find treasure. And Tom was no different. One summer day Tom told Huck about
“Where can we look for treasure?” asked Huck. “It’s hidden on islands, under dead trees, but mostly under the floors in haunted(闹鬼的) houses.”
So, one Saturday afternoon Tom and his friend went to look for treasure at the haunted house on
Cardiff Hill. It was a quiet and lonely which made the boys feel very frightened. They entered quietly, and
explored downstairs. There were cobwebs everywhere and everything was old and broken. Then they threw
their tools in a corner and walked upstairs, but there was nothing there. They were just about to go
downstairs and start digging when Tom stopped.
“What is it?” whispered Huck, going white with fright.
“Keep quiet! There’s someone downstairs.”
The boys lay down, looking through the holes in the wooden floor. There were two men downstairs.
One was an old Spaniard in a wide sombrero hat and the other was duty and unpleasant-looking.
Tom and Hack shook with fear when they heard the Spaniard speak because they found it was Indian
Joe. He said. “It’s time for us to move, partner. What will we do with the $650 form the robbery(抢劫)?”
“Let’s keep $30 each and leave the bag here.”
The dirty man went to the fireplace and moved a stone. Then he lifted out a bag full of money and
look out some coins. The two boys forgot all their fears when they saw there was real treasure downstairs.
Then Indian Joe started digging a hole with his knife and the knife hit something.
“What is it?” asked the other man.
“It’s a box,” said Indian Joe. And he put in his hand and pulled out a handful of gold coins. The other
man found the boys’ tools, and they soon pulled out the box.
“Where’s thousands of dollars in there,” said Indian Joe.
“The Murrell Gang used this area one summer,” said his partner.
“They most have hidden their money here.”
“What will we do with this, Joe? Will we bury(埋)it again?”
“No, someone might find it,” said Indian Joe. “Let’s bury it in the member two den.”
Tom and Huck got up as soon as the two men left. They decided to watch out for the “man in the
sombrero” when he came to town and find out where the member two den was.
62. Where did the two boys go to find treasure one Saturday afternoon?
A. To a haunted house.
B. To a small island.

C. The owner of the house left it there. D. Tom and Huck buried it there.
64. Which is the right order of what happened in the story?

b. The duty man lifted out a bag full of money.
c. Tom and Huck went to look for treasure one day.
d. Indian Joe found a box full of gold coins.
e. The Murrell Gang hid their money in the house.
B. c-d-b-e -a
65. What can we infer(推断) from the passage?

B. The man in the sombrero was Indian Joe.
C. Tom would join Indian Joe and be a robber.
D. Tom and Hack would try to get the treasure.

One possible version:
In life we can hardly do without friends. Friends are an important part in our lives. Why?
As we know, life is no t easy. There are many difficulties and problems we can't overcome
through our own efforts alone. We need friends to support and help us out of them. Also, we
need friends to share our joys and sorrows.
There are many kinds of friends. However, what is true friendship? As the popular saying
goes, "A friend in need is a friend indeed." True friends are those who never desert you when
you are in trouble. They will offer you practical help sincerely and unselfishly even at the cost
of their own interests. What's more, they will encourage you to stick to what is right and to
avoid doing what is wrong or illegal.
It is lucky enough for everyone to have some true friends. But how to maintain such
true friendship? I think it is of great significance for us to learn the a rt to get along with our
friends such as being honest to each other, listening to the inner hearts of each other and
leaving each other some freedom. What’s more, when conflicts occur, communication is a good choice to break the ice.
