Diana Jacbs thught her family had a wrkable plan t pay fr cllege fr her 21-year-ld twin sns: a cmbinatin f savings, incme, schlarships, and a mdest amunt f brrwing. Then her husband lst his jb, and the plan fell apart.
“I have tw kids in cllege, and I want t say ‘cme hme,’ but at the same time I want t prvide them with a gd educatin,” says Jacbs.
The Jacbs family did wrk ut a slutin: They asked and received mre aid frm the schls, and each sn increased his brrwing t the maximum amunt thrugh the federal lan (贷款) prgram. They will each graduate with $20,000 f debt, but at least they will be able t finish schl.
With unemplyment rising, financial aid administratrs expect t hear mre families like the Jacbs. Mre students are applying fr aid, and mre families expect t need student lans. Cllege administratrs are cncerned that they will nt have enugh aid mney t g arund.
At the same time, tuitin（学费）cntinues t rise. A reprt frm the Natinal Center fr Public Plicy and Higher Educatin fund that cllege tuitin and fees increased 439% frm 1982 t 2007, while average family incme rse just 147%. Student brrwing has mre than dubled in the last decade,
“If we g n this way fr anther 25years, we wn’t have an affrdable system f higher educatin,” says Patrick M. Callan, president f the center. “The middle class families have been financing it thrugh debt. They will send kids t cllege whatever it takes, even if that means a huge amunt f debt.”
Financial aid administratrs have been having a hard time as many cmpanies decide that student lans are nt prfitable enugh and have stpped making them. The gd news, hwever, is that federal lans accunt fr abut three quarters f student brrwing, and the gvernment says that mney will flw uninterrupted.
66. Accrding t Paragraph 1, why did the plan f Jacbs family fail?
A. The twins wasted t much mney.
B. The father was ut f wrk.
C. Their saving ran ut.
D. The family fell apart.
67. Hw did the Jacbs manage t slve their prblem?
A. They asked their kids t cme hme.
B. They brrwed $20,000 frm the schl.
C. They encuraged their twin sns t d part-time jbs.
D. They gt help frm the schl and the federal gvernment.
68. Financial aid administratrs believe that _______.
A. mre families will face the same prblem as the Jacbuses
B. the gvernment will receive mre letters f cmplaint
C. cllege tuitin fees will duble sn
D. America’s unemplyment will fall
69.What can we learn abut the middle class families frm the text?
A. They blamed the gvernment fr the tuitin increase.
B. Their incme remained steady in the last decade.
C. They will try their best t send kids t cllege.
D. Their debts will be paid ff within 25 years.
70.Accrding t the last paragraph, the gvernment will .
A. prvide mst students will schlarships
B. dismiss sme financial aid administratrs
C. stp the cmpanies frm making student lans
D. g n prviding financial supprt fr cllege students
【解析】考查细节理解。该段的最后一句话告诉我们他们计划失败的原因：Then her husband lst his jb，也就是B项所说的：The father was ut f wrk。
【解析】考查细节理解。根据第三段中的“The Jacbs family did wrk ut a slutin: They asked and received mre aid frm the schls, and each sn increased his brrwing t the maximum amunt thrugh the federal lan (贷款) prgram.”，可知选D项。
【解析】考查细节理解。由倒数第二段中的最后两句“They will send kids t cllege whatever it takes, even if that means a huge amunt f debt.”无论需要什么他们都会送孩子去上大学，即使那意味着大笔的债务。可知，中产阶级不惜任何代价送他们的孩子上大学。由此可知C项正确。
【解析】考查细节理解。根据最后一段的最后一句话可知，政府将继续向大学生提供资金援助（g n prviding financial supprt fr cllege students）。
I hated dinner parties.But I decided t give them anther sht because I’m in Lndn.And my friend Gallery invited me.And because dinner parties in Lndn are very different frm thse back in New Yrk.There，“I’m having a dinner party” means “I’m bking a table fr 12 at a restaurant yu can’t affrd and we’ll be sharing the check evenly，n matter what yu eat.”
Wrse，in Manhattan there is always smene wh leaves befre the bill arrives.They’ll thrw dwn cash，half f what they we，and then peple like me，wh dn’t drink，end up paying even mre.But if I try t use the same trick，the hstess will shut“Where are yu ging？”And it’s nt like I can say I have smewhere t g：everyne knws I have nwhere t g.
But in Lndn，dinner parties are in peple’s hmes.Nt nly that，the guests are an interesting mix.The last time I went t ne，the guests were frm France，India，Denmark and Nigeria；it was like a gathering at the United Natins.In New Yrk，the mix is less striking.It’s like a gathering at Blmingdale’s，a well-knwn department stre.
Fr New Yrkers，talking abut ther parts f the wrld means Brklyn and Queens in New Yrk.But at Callery’s，when I said that I had been t Myanmar recently，peple knew where it was.In New Yrk peple wuld think it was a usual new club.
( )1. What des the wrd “sht” in Paragraph 1 prbably mean?
A. Chice. B. Try. C. Style. D. Gal.
( )2. What des the writer dislike mst abut dinner parties in New Yrk?
A. There is a strange mix f peple. B. The restaurants are expensive.
C. The bill is nt fairly shared. D. Peple have t pay cash.
( )3. What des the authr think f the parties in Lndn?
A. A bit unusual. B. Full f tricks.
C. Less cstly. D. Mre interesting.
( )4.What is the authr’s pinin f sme New Yrkers frm her experience?
A. Easy-ging. B. Self-centered.
C. Generus. D. Cnservative.
( )5.What is the main idea f this article?
A．I hated dinner parties.
B．I prefer dinner parties in Lndn t thse in New Yrk.
C．The difference between Lndn and New Yrk.
D．Mallry invited me t a party.
1. B 词义猜测题。从第一句的hated，到But意义上的转折，说明尽管不喜欢，还是要“尝试一下”，所以try的意思更接近sht。
2. C 细节理解题。根据第一段中“They'll thrw dwn cash, half f what they we, and then peple like me, wh dn't drink, end up paying even mre.”可知类似作者这样的人在纽约吃饭吃亏，因为付钱多。故C项意思正确。
3. D 推理判断题。根据第二段和其中的句子Nt nly that, the guests are an interesting mix.可以推断伦敦的party要比纽约有趣。
4. B 推理判断题。从最后一段的talking abut ther parts f the wrld means Brklyn and Queens in New Yrk.和In New Yrk peple wuld think it was a usual new club 可以推断，作者对一些纽约人的看法是“以自我为中心的”。
5．B 主旨大意题。A，D都不全面，C 范围扩大。由伦敦和纽约的dinner parties间的不同扩大到两座城市所有的不同。整篇文章都是在比较两个城市间的“dinner parties”的不同之处，同时也表达了作者对纽约聚会的诸多不满，和对伦敦parties的喜欢。

关于 雾霾 的英语作文（篇2）
I’m glad t receive yur letter,thank yu fr yur caring fr the weather and my health.Nw I’d like t tell yu smething abut the smg.
Since the winter last year,the smg has ccurred a lt f times.it has dne great harm t ur daily life.many traffic accidents happened just because f the heavy smg weather,mre and mre peple have t g t see the dctr because the serius disease caused by the smg,quite a lt f flights have t be put ff,a great number f peple have t stay at hme fr fear f the pisnus air caused by the smg.
Peple have realized the great harm caused by the smg and the imprtance f prtecting the envirnment.peple all ver the cuntry are taking measures t reduce the smg weather.the gvernment suggests peple g t wrk r schl with the public traffic, such as the bus and the undergrund.Als we shuld plant mre trees.
Accrding t me, I will g t schl by bike r n ft, and I wn’t thrw the waste anywhere.in additin, I will tell the peple I meet t prtect the envirnment as pssible as they can.wuld yu like t tell me sme gd ideas?i’m lking frward t yur reply.
Bnus(奖金) culture has becme the subject f many studies nwadays. Many peple have been angered by the way sme bankers and high fficials seem t have been rewarded fr failure. Others find the idea f ffering many-millin-dllar bnuses mrally disgusting.
But few have asked whether perfrmance-related bnuses really d imprve perfrmance. The answer seems s bvius that even t ask the questin can appear ridiculus. Indeed, in spite f all the cmplaints abut them, financial encuragements cntinue t be intrduced in mre and mre areas, frm healthcare and public services t teaching and universities.
S it may cme as a shck t many t learn that paying fr results can actually make peple perfrm badly in many circumstances, and that the mre yu pay, the wrse they perfrm.
N ne is arguing that bnuses can help cmpanies and institutins attract and keep the best staff. Nr des anyne argue against the idea that yu can encurage peple t d specific tasks by linking payments t thse tasks. Rather, the pint is abut hw t get the best ut f peple. D emplyees really perfrm better if yu prmise t pay them mre fr getting results?
There are sme bvius reasns why such payments can fail. It has been argued, fr instance, that cash bnuses cntributed t the financial crash, because traders had little enthusiasm t make sure that their cmpanies enjyed lng-term survival.
Mst bnus prjects are prly designed, says Prfessr Malclm Diggs. He thinks the reasn is that rganizatin try t keep bnus arrangements simple. Nevertheless, he thinks bnus prjects can wrk as lng as they link the interests f individual emplyees with the lng-term gals f a business.
Bnuses can als encurage cheating. “Once yu start making peple’s rewards dependent n utcmes rather than behavirs, the evidence is peple will d whatever they can t get thse utcmes,” says Prfessr Edward Dec i. “In many cases the high fficials simply lied and cheated t make the stck (股票) price g up s they gt huge bnuses.”
But the wrk f Deci and thers suggests the prblem with bnuses runs far deeper than pr design r cheating. In 1971, he asked students t slve puzzles, with sme receiving cash prizes fr ding well and thers getting nthing. Deci fund thse ffered cash were less likely t keep wrking n puzzles after they had dne enugh t get paid.
These studies suggest that ffering rewards can stp peple ding things fr the pure jy f it. This was the basis fr a series f bks by Khn in which he argues that rewarding children, students and wrkers with grades, schlarships and ther “bribes” (贿赂) leads t lw-quality wrk in the lng run.
Thse wh believe in the pwer f bnuses fail t distinguish between inner drive and utside pressure — wanting t d smething because yu like it fr itself in cntrast t ding smething because yu want the reward, Khn says. “It’s nt just that these tw are different, it’s ften that the mre yu reward peple fr ding smething, the mre their inner drive tends t decline.”
A “d this and get that” apprach might imprve perfrmance in the shrt term, but ver lnger perids it will always fail, Khn says. Peple wh receive bnus will naturally play safe, becme less creative, cperate less and feel less valued, he adds. What’s mre, the studies als suggest that ffering rewards can als stp peple taking respnsibility.

“Children shuld nt be left unsupervised(无人监督的) t play with a dg.”say experts in this week's British Medical Jurnal. Their advice is part f a review aimed at dctrs wh deal with dg bites.
“Dg bites and maulings are a wrldwide prblem, particularly in children.” write Marina Mrgan and Jhn Palmer. Every year 250,000 peple wh have been bitten by dgs attend minr injuries and emergency units in the United Kingdm, and half f all children are reprtedly bitten by dgs at sme time, bys mre than girls.
Accurate death figures are difficult t btain, but in the past five years, tw t three cases a year have made news headlines.
Based n the latest medical evidence, they advise dctrs hw t examine and treat a patient presenting with a dg bite. They discuss the risk f infectin and when t refer t specialist care. Fr travelers bitten abrad, they suggest assessing the risk f rabies(狂犬病).
In terms f preventin, they suggest that children shuld be taught t treat dgs with respect, avid direct eye cntact, and nt tease them. They shuld be taught nt t apprach an unfamiliar dg; play with any dg unless under clse supervisin; run r scream in the presence f a dg; pet a dg withut first letting it sniff yu; r disturb a dg that is eating, sleeping, r caring fr puppies.
“Dg wners als need t change their behavir”, says Rachel Besser, a children's dctr and lifetime dg wner, in an article.
“It is clear that nt all dg wners appreciate that children shuld nt be left unsupervised with a dg”, she says. Just as sme parents are bliged t take parenting classes, she wuld like t see cmpulsive classes fr expectant dg wners t teach them abut the respnsibilities f dg wnership. Educatinal prgrams are als needed t teach children abut sme precautinary behavirs arund dgs.
Finally, she wuld like t see vets advising dg wners abut bite preventin, and dctrs prmting bite preventin when treating patients wh have been bitten by dgs.
66. Dg biting studied by the experts is a prblem ____________.
A. dctrs dealing with dg bites shuld pay attentin t
B. happening nly t a few children f the wrld
C. nly bys may meet with
D. abut which experts get accurate statistics frm the news headlines
67. The underlined wrd “they” in paragraph 4 refers t “____________ ”.
A. dctrs B. parents C. experts D dg wners
68. T avid dg bites, a child shuld ____________.
A. treat dgs with respect and direct eye cntact B. apprach an unfamiliar dg
C. run r scream in the presence f a dg D. leave a dg feeding itself
69. What are Rachel Besser’s wrds mainly abut ?
A. All the dg wners wuld like children nt t be left unsupervised with a dg.
B. All the dg wners have a crrect behavir tward dgs.
C. Nt all dg wners appreciate that children shuld be left with dgs under supervisin.
D. Nt all dg wners shuld attend classes abut the respnsibilities f dg wnership.
70. Which f the fllwing can be the best title fr the passage?
A. Dgs, Dangerus T Children
B. Children Shuld Knw Behavirs Arund Dgs.
C. Dctrs, Treat Dg Bites Crrectly.
D. Never Leave Children Unsupervised With Dgs
66. A. 细节理解题。根据第一段“Their advice is part f a review aimed at dctrs wh deal with dg bites.”可知，专家所研究的狗咬人的问题也应该是相关医生应给予重视的问题，故答案选A项。
67. C. 词义猜测题。第四段共有三句，其主语均为“they”，应指同样的人，根据“Based n the latest medical evidence”再结合第一段专家的讲话可推断，他们就指研究狗咬人这一问题的专家们，故选C项。
68. D. 细节理解题。根据第五段“They shuld be taught nt t apprach an unfamiliar dg; play with any dg unless under clse supervisin; run r scream in the presence f a dg; pet a dg withut first letting it sniff yu; r disturb a dg that is eating, sleeping, r caring fr puppies.”可知，为了避免狗咬，小孩应该让狗自己吃，而不要云打扰它，故选D项。
69. C. 细节理解题。根据第七段“It is clear that nt all dg wners appreciate that children shuld nt be left unsupervised with a dg”可知，雷切尔医生认为，并非所有的狗的主人都认为孩子们和狗在一起的时候要有大人的照看。由此判断选C项。
70. D. 主旨大意题。狗咬人，尤其是狗咬小孩的现象比较严重，那么如何避免狗咬小孩呢？这才是本文的写作重点，而只有D项更能说明此问题，故正确答案选D项。

Stnehenge may have been a prehistric health center rather than a site fr bserving stars r a temple in hnr f the dead, scientists said yesterday. New evidence unearthed at the Wrld Heritage Site in mre than 40 years suggests that the mnument was a place where the diseased and injured went in grups, seeking cures.
After a tw-week dig, scientists have cncluded that Stnehenge was "the ancient healthcare centre f suthern England" because f the existence f "bluestnes"-the smaller clumns f dlerite (辉绿岩) that frmed an earlier stne structure.
By dating pieces f remains t arund 7330BC, Tim Darvill, f Burnemuth University, and Gff Wainwright, f the Sciety f Amtiquaries have fund that hunter-gatherers were at the site n Salisbury Plain 4,000 years earlier than thught. The first stage f Stnehenge, a rund earthwrk structure, was built arund 3000BC. Prfessr Wainwright added: "I did nt expect the degree f cmplexity we discvered. We're able t say s much mre abut when Stnehenge was built and why-all f which changes ur previus understanding f the mnument."
The research reveals the imprtance f the henge's famus bluestnes. Hundreds f bluestne chips gathered at the site have led the team t cnclude that the bluestnes were valued fr their curing effects-the key reasn that abut 80 f them, each weighing up t 4 tns and a half, were dragged mre than 150 miles frm the Preseli Hills t Wiltshire. After years f research, Prfessrs Darvill and Wainwright have cncluded that, fr thusands f years, the Preseli muntain range was hme t magical health centers and hly wells.

The Matterhrn f Switzerland had been climbed hundreds f times since it was first cnquered by Edward Whymper in 1865. He, and the many that fllwed him ver the years, had scaled the muntain by the relatively easy suthern apprach. The vertical (垂直的) nrthern face presented a much mre frightening challenge. Althugh sme climbers had scaled the nrth wall, their attempts were made in summer. Experts had predicted that it was unimaginable t make the climb in the winter.
Water Bnatti annunced that he was ging t attempt a winter climb f the near-vertical ice-cvered nrthern face in the February. What was shcking was that he intended t use the mre direct rute frm base t peak withut any f the passes made by his pineers. It seemed a suicidal bid.
Cvered in a yellw wind-breaker, Bnatti gathered his skills, nerves, strength and vigr against the nrth face. Slwly and carefully, his strng but cld-stned fingers searched fr hand-hlds. One false mve and he wuld plunge straight dwn thusands f feet t his death. The higher he went, the mre the wind increased its frce, striking him with icy pwer, threatening t dash him nt the rcks belw. After tw tugh days, he reached 12,800 feet. At night, he napped in a hammck (吊床) between tw steel sticks hammered in the rck face.
At first light, he cntinued ever upward, withut a thught f turning back. The cruel, sub-zer temperature cracked his gggles (护目镜) and he struggled half-blinded. Often his hands which were bleeding, failed t settle n an pening and he had t make attempts with his instinct. His tiring bdy was in pain but still climbed up twards the peak.
At dawn n the furth day, he was n the edge f cmplete exhaustin, but with victry in sight, he prepared himself fr the critical
trek. Just after three in the afternn, excited spectatrs in the helicpters saw Bnatti suddenly appear crawling ver the shining tip f the muntain. He had achieved the impssible and wn the wrld acclaim.
1. Why was Bnatti’s attempt regarded as an impssible task?
A. Because n ne had climbed the muntain since the last cnquest by Whymper.
B. Because the muntain presents the biggest challenge in the wrld.
C. Because n ne had reached the peak frm the nrth in cld weather.
D. Because the Swiss gvernment frbade peple t climb the muntain in severe weather.
2. Hw did he manage t climb up?
A. He used the wind-breaker t lcate hles n the nrth face and climbed up.
B. He made his hands fish fr penings and relied n them t climb.
C. He tk advantage f steel hammer t climb up the muntain.
D. He brrwed the frce frm the ice t help him rise.
3. The underlined wrd trek in the last paragraph is clsest in the meaning t _____.

C. difficult jurney
D. bad weather cnditin
