If you think you are sick, you are       no matter what anyone else says. On the other hand, if you believe in your       , and if he tells that you are going to feel better, you probably will. The effect of the mind upon the body       and sometimes can be powerful. It exists       one is aware of it or not.
Take the case of Mrs. Green, for example. She       get to sleep at night and was too tired during the day to do some       things that she used to enjoy doing. She had headaches more often which prevented her from reading or watching TV. The more she thought about conditions,       she felt. At last she went to see her doctor, whom she had known       . The doctor listened to her and gave her a very       . Then he said to her. “There is       wrong with you physically,       I accept the fact that you don’t feel well. I’m going to give you some       that should help. I want you to       one after dinner and one half an hour       going to bed tonight. Call me tomorrow and tell me       you feel.”
The next day Mrs. Green      , “Doctor, I had the first       night’s sleep in two months night.       is in this pills?” The doctor said, “It’s an old formula (配方) I have       for years. Just keep on taking them for a week.” Turning to the nurse, he said, “It’s       what a little baking soda (苏打) can do!”

She once said: "When people ask me if writing has been a hard or easy road I always answer with the famous saying, "the end is nothing; the road is all.'” That is what I mean when I say writing has been a pleasure. I have never faced the type-writer (打字机) with the thought that one more task had to be done."
Like most writers, Willa Cather did not write books for the money that they brought her, but rather for the pleasure that came in their writing. Her works were, like her, simple and full of the vigor (活力) of her days in Nebraska, where she grew from childhood to young womanhood and where she developed a deep love for the treeless land of the Great Plains with its wild flowers, wheat fields and rivers.
"It's a rather strange thing about the flat country," she wrote later. "It takes hold of you, or it leaves you perfectly cold. A great many people find it very dull; they like a church tower, an old factory, a waterfall country all made to look like a German, Christmas card... But when I come to the open plains, something happens. I'm home. I breathe differently."
【小题1】What did Cather mean by "the end is nothing; the road is all"?

A.Writing is the only path to success. " D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
B.I feel happy when I finish writing a book." D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
C.I enjoy writing whether it is hard or easy. " D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
D.Writing itself, not its result, is important." D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
【小题2】What was the place like where Cather grew up?
A.It was cold, plain and without a church." D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
B.It was a colorful world of wild flowers." D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
C.It was like a German Christmas card" D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
D.It was vast, open, flat and wild." D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
【小题3】When she said "It takes hold of you, or it leaves you perfectly cold", Willa Gather meant ______.
A.you either love the place or hate it" D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [
B.you decide either to stay or to leave" D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [

D.some find the place peaceful; others find it wild" D7 X' W) \( V8 [5 D" C" T9 N$ h" [

People who show confidence really seem to have it made. They seize more rewarding careers, keep good relationships, and just seem to do everything with more styles than the rest of us.
So what is the secret? There isn’t one. Self-confidence is a skill and habit that anyone can learn to develop. And although people who are raised in an encouraging environment with confident role models have a hard start in self-confidence development, we all can learn to become more confident at any age.
Try these simple tips for practising and increasing your self-confidence levels:
Dare to fail. Anybody who’s out there bravely performing is going to fail repeatedly. If you are not failing, you are not trying. So don’t take failure too hard or too personally. Just learn to deal with it and use its lessons to keep improving.
When in doubt, pretend you know what you are doing. Because, if you are confident of your abilities, by the time you have done it, you will be experienced.
Dress for success. You don’t have to be beautiful to be confident. Make the most of your own unique physical characters and weaken your disadvantages.
Listen to yourself. You are the only person who knows what’s right for you. Don’t put others’ opinions above your own inner voice.
Build a confident vocabulary. Stop putting yourself down and give up continually blaming your tiny weaknesses. Learn to show up your strong points and the world will learn to see and celebrate them with you.
Pass on the praise. Praise others for their virtues and strengths. This practice will not decrease your confidence, but help increase it.
【小题1】The passage is written mainly __________.

A.to explain the definition of self-confidence; X `. D4 ^! M

One Monday morning, Paul and his classmates were in science laboratory for their practical chemistry lesson. The students were going to work in pairs to do an experiment. Before they began, the teacher gave them this description of the different stages of the experiment.
Stage 1: Prepare the equipment: a test tube, a crucible, a Bunsen burner and tongs.
Stage 2: Weigh 5 grams of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and put it in a crucible.
Stage 3: Heat 10 ml of hydrochloric acid (盐酸) in a test tube.
Stage 4: Pour the warm acid onto the baking soda and continue to heat the mixture.
Result: The acid reacts with the bicarbonate(碳酸氢盐)to form water, carbon dioxide gas and salt. The hotter the mixture, the quicker the reaction. Continue to heat the mixture until the water evaporates, leaving the salt in the crucible.
Paul and his partner followed the instructions and set up their equipment. Paul went to the cupboard to get a bottle of hydrochloric acid. He found that there was only one bottle in the cupboard so he took that. There was no label on the bottle and Paul didn’t check with the teacher if it was the right solution.
He measured the liquid and poured it into a test tube. Using tongs to hold the test tube, he heated it over the Bunsen burner. That’s when things started to go wrong. The liquid in the test tube was not hydrochloric acid. When it was heated, it formed a thick cloud of white gas. Soon the room was full of this strong smelling white gas.
All the students started coughing and their eyes hurt. The teacher immediately opened the windows and ordered the students to leave the laboratory at once. She realized that the liquid was a crylamide (丙烯酰胺) and that it is poisonous.
Fortunately, nobody was injured in the incident. However, it taught the students and the teacher a good lesson.
【小题1】What lesson did the incident teach the students and the teacher?

A.Never have a bottle without a label in the chemistry lab!/ L, R: O+ _* A& T
B.Obey your teacher’s instructions in the Chemistry lab./ L, R: O+ _* A& T
C.A crylamide can’t take the place of hydrochloric acid./ L, R: O+ _* A& T
D.Finding something unusual happened, you have to leave the laboratory at once./ L, R: O+ _* A& T
【小题2】What substance were the students making in the experiment?
A.Water/ L, R: O+ _* A& T B.Carbon dioxide gas/ L, R: O+ _* A& T C.Salt/ L, R: O+ _* A& T D.Poisonous gas/ L, R: O+ _* A& T
【小题3】Why did Paul make the mistake?
A.He went to the cupboard to get the bottle by himself./ L, R: O+ _* A& T
B.He found that there was only one bottle in the cupboard so he took that./ L, R: O+ _* A& T
C.There was no label on the bottle./ L, R: O+ _* A& T
D.Paul didn’t check with the teacher that it was the right solution./ L, R: O+ _* A& T
【小题4】Why did the teacher send the students out of the classroom?
A.Becausethe room was full of this strong smelling white gas./ L, R: O+ _* A& T
B.Because all the students started coughing and their eyes hurt./ L, R: O+ _* A& T

A quarter of US adults say they read no books at all in the past year, according to an Associated Press-Ipsos survey. The typical person said that he / she read four books in the last year and, excluding those who had not read any books at all, the usual number of books read was seven.
Of those who did read, women and pensioners (领养老金者) were the most eager readers, and religious works and popular fiction were the top choices. The number of books read was nine books for women and five for men. The number also showed that those with college degrees read the most, and people aged 50 and over read more than those who are younger.
People from the West and Midwest are more likely to have read at least one book in the past year. Southerners who do read tend to read more books — mostly religious books and romance novels — than people from other regions.
Those who said they never attend religious services read nearly twice as many books as those who attend frequently, but the Bible and religious works were read by two thirds of the people in the survey, more than all the other categories. Popular fiction, histories, biographies and mysteries took up about half, while one in five read romance novels. Politics, poetry and classical literature were named by fewer than 5% of readers. More women than men read every major category of books except for history and biography books. Men tend to prefer non-fiction.
Book sales in the US have been flat in recent years and are expected to stay that way, which, experts think, results from competition from the Internet and other media, and the unsteady economy.
【小题1】The passage mainly tells us ______.

Last year, over 206,000 students from the United States studied abroad. Does that number surprise you? These students already know the benefits of studying abroad. You may be wondering why you should study abroad. Here are some answers for you.
◆ Timing
The absolutely best time in your life to study abroad is when you are in college. If you miss this opportunity, it’s almost impossible for you to do it later in life.
◆ To gain cross-cultural experience
Life overseas makes you see your everyday world in a whole new light. You don’t even realize it, but our culture shapes the way we view the world and affects us every minute of the day. Differences in culture are more than just differences in language, food, clothing and art.
◆ To improve your communication skills and your self-confidence
People who study abroad tend to be willing to take risks, willing to put themselves in unusual situations, and able to solve problems.
◆ To become more fluent in a language or to learn a new language
The world market is becoming smaller, and many companies require a second language. Foreign languages are not only valuable in the job market but also valuable in the real world.
◆ For the adventure
Travel to other cities within your host country and around neighboring countries. As you get to know your new classmates, roommates, and host family, you will gain a unique view on the host culture. Discover the differences and, more importantly, the many similarities between your worlds. The friendships you make will last long after the program.
◆ To learn more about yourself
Find out who you really are. What are your limits? How do you overcome the difficulties you’ve never encountered before? How independent are you? These questions are hard to answer until you are removed from your usual surroundings. After solving difficult problems on your own overseas, you’ll find that almost nothing will confuse you at home. Students who study abroad commonly report that their study abroad experience actually changed their lives.
