People often think of the North Pole(北极) and the South Pole as similar frozen(冰冻的)
wastelands. They are both places with very cold temperatures and few people live there. However, the North and South Poles are not much alike as people may imagine.
The North Pole has no land, only thick ice. Temperatures seldom go above 32°F, at which water turns into ice. Most of the time, it stays below zero. In winter temperatures are usually as low as -30°F.
Although conditions were very poor, people tried for many centuries to reach the North Pole. A bout 100 years ago, two men, Robert Peary and Mathew Henson, were able to get to this environment full of troubles and difficulties. They reached the North Pole on March 8th, 1909. It was really a hard trip for them.
There are few things more dangerous than crossing the Arctic(北极圈) on foot. People who stayed there may face many problems: very cold temperatures, sudden storms, and even hunger. Most of the area is uninhabited. Few people can live in such a difficult place.
People might think that with such low temperatures for most of the year, the ice would be thick and hard. However, this is not true in the Arctic. The movement of the ocean water under the ice may often cause many different changes on the surface. Sometimes the ice breaks into two opening lanes of water(水道) called “leads”. Anyone who falls into a lead can be frozen to death in a few minutes.
61. This passage is probably from ___________.
A. a book review B. a science book
C. a school report D. a computer magazine
62. According to the passage, what happened about 100 years ago ?
A. Two men succeeded in getting to the North Pole.
B. Temperatures in the North Pole went above 32°F.
C. The environment in the North Pole suddenly became worse.
D. The North Pole changed into thick ice because of the temperatures.
63. What does the underlined word “uninhabited” probably mean in Chinese?
A. 气候恶劣的 B. 充满危险的 C. 困难重重的 D. 无人居住的
64. The reason for the ice to break into two opening lanes of water is _____________.
A. that the tempe rature suddenly drops B. that the water under the ice is frozen
C. that the ocean water under the ice moves D. that the surface is covered with lots of ice
65. What does this passage mainly talk about?
A. The thick ice in the North Pole.
B. A difficult trip to the North Pole.
C. The real situation in the North Pole.
D. The differences between the North Pole and the South Pole.

What will happen if a family without the Internet for a month? One American family decides to find out. They have sent invitation to a leading US television station, expecting that it will send a film group to record their day-to -day life __71__ technology for a month.
When the film group meet __72__ Smiths, they find that Mr. Smith, Mrs. Smith and their two sons are so crazy about technology that __73__ hardly do things together. At mealtimes, no one __74__ at the dining table for their food. “Everyone just runs into the kitchen, takes their food and then goes back to their screen,” Mrs. Smith explains. “__75__ we don’t make a change, our family will become strangers to each other!”
Getting back to the normal life without the Internet is not __76__, especially when the Smiths lose themselves in it. They have to make many __77__. For example, the two brothers have to go to the school __78__ to borrow books for their scientific projects, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith need to go out shopping because they cannot buy things __79__. As the family have picked up the new lifestyle, they find that they can spend more time taking over meals, playing sports and doing all __80__ of activities together.
Would they be able to go for long without using the Internet after the challenge?
Our words carry huge weight. They may influence people for years, and even for a lifetime. They provide them with courage to go on or one more reason to give up.
When I was fourteen, my family moved to another city. Junior high was always a difficult time for me, and the move made my ninth-grade year even harder. I remember walking into the dining hall for the first time. The other kids had good friends with them, but I didn’t know anyone. I felt lonely and went to the nearest seat after getting some food. The kids beside me looked at me up and down and then laughed. I could feel my face turning red at that moment. Then one of the Kids broke the ice. “Man! You have one BIG nose!” I felt hurt and didn’t know what to say. I wanted to cry. But I managed a little smile---as if it didn’t hurt me at all. But it did. From then on, I would often look at myself in the mirror. I studied the big nose closely. It seemed that I was just living for my nose. Thankfully, I grew out of this influence finally. But it really took me twenty years
There is another thing that is kept deep in my mind. I remember going through a terrible business failure. I lost everything. I called my dad for help and he told me a lot about how to deal with the failure. What he said gave me a lot of courage and confidence（信心）to go on with my business.
The thing that may influence people for a long time 81.
Jason’s feeling when he entered the dining hall 82.
The part of Jason’s body that other kids laughed at 83.
The number of years that Jason spent growing out of the influence 84.
The person who gave Jason courage and confidence 85.
Ladies and gentlemen,
How will words influence others? Let me tell you one of my experiences. _______________

I’m Tony. Let me tell you about my summer camp. Last Friday night, I was so excited about going camping but I didn’t sleep well. I arrived at the camp earlier than anyone else the next morning. Then I learned how to put up a tent from David. It was very hard work in a hot sun. At noon, everyone was glad to have a picnic lunch. At 2:00 pm, on the way to the beach, our leader told us some skills we may need for our lives outdoors, such as how to deal with snakes and wild dogs. My favorite skill was how to tell the time by looking at the sun. In the evening, we had dinner followed by a drumming lesson. I didn’t take it because I had to sleep earlier to make up for the night before. I think it was a great experience and I learned a lot.

On the 12th of April, 2017, an airline in the Netherlands sent two pandas from Chengdu in China to the Netherlands. This is the first time for the airline to fly pandas from China to the Netherlands. The two pandas are called Xing Ya and Wu Wen. Sending the two pandas to the Netherlands helps to keep the good relationship between the two countries. The pandas would live in one of the zoos where a special area was built for them. The 3-year-old and 5-year-old pandas would stay there for a long time. During the welcome coming party, three government officers made short speeches. After that, people watched these two cute animals with great interest. And people also enjoyed a short video on the Internet about how the pandas were sent from China to the Netherlands
