your house, a few more feet from the station to your office, and a few more feet from your office to a

One day, nearly two years after the Philippines (菲律宾) became my 2 , I was told to go to the
office of Lieutenant Colonel (中校) Boyd. He seemed to be a kind man, but I was pretty sure that he hadn't
called me in to 3 the time of day.
Standing before his desk, I waited 4 as he read through some paperwork. Then he looked up.

which in turn informed me about that. Then he said, "Go to that desk, and you'll find some paper and a
pen. Sit down right this minute and write to your mother, Private?"
When I finished a short letter, I stood before him again.
"Private, I'm 6 you to find something to say to your mother at least once a week. Do you
understand?" I did.
Some thirty-five years later, my 7 mother's mind was not as good as it used to be, and I had

阅读下面材料，根据材料内容从每题所给的四个选项中选择最佳选项。 The first person who'd sent emails was an American friend who was in a big company. Some years ago,
when this method of communication first came into business life, his company in New York and its satellites
across the earth were among the first to get it.
One evening in New York, the American friend was late for a drink we'd arranged (安排). "Sorry," he
said, "I've been away and had to deal with 998 emails." "Wow," I said, "I'm really surprised you made it before
midnight." "It doesn't really take that long," he explained, "if you simply delete (删除) them all."
The friend had developed his own way on dealing with emails before most of us heard of emails. If any
information he got was very important, his no reply would make the sender ring him up. If the sender wasn't
important enough to have his phone number, the communication couldn't be important enough.
Almost every week now, we have to spend lots of time in dealing with emails. But if this happens, it's only
because we haven't developed the same thing in dealing with emails as we do with post. Have you ever regarded
an important letter as a piece of advertisement and thrown it out? Of course you haven't. Junk (垃圾) email
looks unnecessary to read. But I cannot understand why so many people would like to open emails which come
from this kind of address such as SPECIALOFFER@junk.com.
Dealing with emails is an art. Firstly, you delete anything from any address you don't know. Secondly, not
all the emails have to be answered. Thirdly, a reply email doesn't have to be the same length as the original (原始

B. Because he had to deal with quite a lot of emails.
C. Because he had to finish his work before midnight.
D. Because he had to delete quite a lot of emails.
2. What is the American friend's opinion on e-mails? [ ] A. He would get all the important information whether he replied the emails or not.
B. He would only reply the emails whose sender had his phone number.
C. He would only reply the important emails.
D. He thought communication through the phone would be better than through the emails.
3. Which of the statement is true according to the writer? [ ] A. All the emails should be answered.
B. A reply email should be the same length as the original.
C. To find an important letter among the advertisements is easier than to find an important e-mail among the
D. Most of people would hardly open the emails from the address they don't know.
4. The best title for the passage is "_______________". [ ] A. Emails
B. An American friend invented emails
C. Emails changed our life
D. How to deal with emails

take my dog Rosie with me, so I spoke to my vet (兽医) before I booked the tickets. Rosie would have to
travel in a large wooden box, and I wanted to check that she would be OK. The vet said that Rosie would be

until Rosie was taken off the plane. The flight attendant told me to get off the plane immediately, and that I
should wait for Rosie at the baggage claim area (行李认领处). So I went to the baggage claim area and
waited until all the baggage had been taken off the plane. Soon I was the only person waiting and there was
still no sign of Rosie.
After forty-five minutes, I asked a woman who worked for the airline if she could find out where my
dog was. After I'd waited another thirty minutes, she told me that the plane was now flying to Los Angeles.
Rosie was still on the plane! It wasn't until eleven thirty that night that the airline found Rosie in Los Angeles.
There were no more flights that night so she had to spend the night in her box at Los Angeles airport.
I got Rosie back the next morning, but by this time she had been in her box for over eighteen hours.

handed him some money to pay for it. He wouldn't take the money. "I'll pay for it, mama. I broke it. I didn't
hit the wood in the right place."
"But Jerry, no one hits the wood in the right place all the time. And it was a weak handle. I'll speak to the
seller." It was only then that he would take the money.
Another thing about Jerry was that he would do those little but helpful things. The things would not be
badly needed but would make life so much easier. For example, he found a hole near the fireplace. "I'll put
some wood in the hole, mama. Then when a sudden storm (暴风雨) comes up, you can stay warm."
One cold day, Jerry sat close by me near the fire. We watched the fire bum. He suddenly talked of
something he had never talked of before. "You look like my mother, especially (特别) next to the fire."

阅读下面短文。根据短文内容从每题所给的四个选项中选择最佳选项。 Mr. Brown lived in a house less than two miles from his office, so he was able to drive home every day for
lunch. Every time he drove home at noon, he found many cars were parked outside his house and there was no
room for his own car. He had to drive somewhere else to park his car. Then he had to walk back home. This
made him very angry.
He had put up a board, which said, "No parking in the garden facing the road,"but nobody noticed it. People seemed to obey (遵守) only a police notice with white letters on a blue board:
Mrs. Brown suggested (建议)that he should steal a police notice. He was afraid to do so. She then
suggested that he should make one just like a police notice. He said he was not the police and couldn't use the
word "police". Several days later, Mr. Brown made a blue board with white letters:
"Oh,"Mrs. Brown said, "You told me you weren't going to use the word "police", but why do you use it
now?" "Really?"he asked, looked at it again.
She started to laugh, "You are really clever."
