On a cloudless summer day, 13-year-old Charlie Finlayson was ready for a long hike with his father, David.
Around noon, David was inching his way across a cliff 800 feet above the valley, searching for a line of cracks that would lead them to the top. Charlie stood on a rock a dozen yards to the right as he fed rope to his dad. Reaching up, David missed his step. In the next moment, he heard a sharp crack from above as something larger broke loose.
When Charlie saw his father sailing through the air alongside the huge rocks that had struck him, he pulled the rope fiercely.
“Tell me it’s OK,” Charlie begged, struggling to control his fear.
“I think I broke my leg,” David told him. “And we must get off this mountain.” He proposed a plan: Charlie would lower David half a rope length at a time, then lower himself to the same level, and at a new place, begin again.
As hours passed, they came to the base of the cliff, and David was shaking with cold and exhaustion.
Worried that David would die if he fell asleep, Charlie kept the conversation going; they talked about past travels. Eventually Charlie allowed himself to catnap, checking on his father each time he awoke. When the sun rose on their camp, Charlie was relieved to see that his father was awake.
Just after dawn, Charlie headed off on the trail toward the volunteers’ cabin 12 miles away, bringing back a helicopter that would carry his father to safety.
“Charlie’s as strong as anyone I know,” says his father, “I’m so proud of him.”

Lots of people like a good fright at Halloween. Yet, the most frightening thing of all about the night is that twice as many children are killed while out and about on Hallween compared to any other day of the year, according to a study by Safe Kids Worldwide. It can also be a worrying time for others, especially elderly people living alone. Bu many people think it’s just harmless fun.
But is it harmless fun?
Police forces across Britain are giving warnings about Halloween night. They are asking all those wishing to celebrate Halloween this year to respect those who don’t want to join in.
Some forces, like West Mercia Police, have produced “Sorry, No Trick or Treat” posters which can be downloaded from their website, and put up in windows. They want people to send them to the old or anyone who may be frightened by ghosts(鬼)knocking on their doors.
A spokesman said: “Children should not call on houses where the posters are put up, neither should they call on strangers, as this can put young people at risk and also make some house owners anxious, especially those who are elderly or living alone.”
The police want all trick or treaters to remember that disturbing other people or throwing objects at their homes or cars are all criminal offences(刑事罪). “What may start off as a bit of fun could end up with someone getting a criminal record,” they warn. “Parents may want to consider having a Halloween party at home, instead.”
Kent Police are warning young people never to go into the home of someone they don’t know----and to remember not to frighten people.
Warwickshire Police are also warning that tricks may seem like harmless fun but can cause trouble to others. They say behaviour such as throwing eggs can quickly cross the line between being anti-social and causing criminal damage. This can result in fines of ￡2,500 for small offences.
28. What has the study made by Safe Kids Worldwide found?
A. Halloween brings people no fun
B. Halloween night puts some kids at risk
C. kids are involved in criminal offences
D. kids are afraid of Halloween
29. Why are British police forces making efforts to?
A. Control anti-social behaviours
B. Put an end to trick or treat
C. Make Halloween safe and trouble-free
D. Punish those who frighten others
30. Why are the “Sorry, No Trick or Treat” posters designed?
A. To express disagreement with Halloween
B. To ask people to respect the elderly
C. To warn little kids to behave themselves
D. To make some people free from harm
31. Which of the following things is encouraged by the police during Halloween?
A. Having a Halloween party at home
B. Inviting the elderly to join in the celebration
C. Going trick or treating from door to door
D. Giving strangers a good fright
Sometimes the toughest thing about feelings is sharing them with others．Sharing your feelings helps you whether your feelings are wonderful or terrible．Sharing also helps you to get closer to people you care about and who care about you．But how?
You can’t tell your friends what’s inside your backpack if you don’t know what’s in there yourself．Feelings are the same way．Before you can share them with anyone，you have to figure out what feelings you have．
Making a list of your feelings can help．You can do this in your mind or by writing it out or even by drawing pictures．Is something bothering you? Does it make you frustrated or terrified? Do you feel this emotion only once in a while or much of the time?
The way a person feels inside is important．If you keep feelings locked inside，it can even make you feel sick! But if you talk with someone who cares for you，you will almost always start to feel better．It doesn’t mean your problems and worries magically disappear，but at least someone else knows what’s bothering you and can help you find solutions．
Your mom and dad want to know if you have problems and what’s happening in your life．But what if a kid doesn’t want to talk with parents? Then find another trusted adult，like a relative or a teacher at schoo1．Maybe this person can help you talk with your parents about your problem or concern．
Once you know who you can talk with，you'll want to pick a time and place to talk．You can talk publicly in your family．But some kids are more private than others and they will feel shy about sharing their feelings．Then find a quiet place or write it down on a piece of paper．A kid doesn’t have to share every feeling he or she has．
32. What does the passage mainly tell us?
A. The importance of feelings． B. How to figure out your feelings．
C. How to share your feelings． D. The people sharing your feelings．
33. What can we learn from Paragraph 2?
A. Kids can’t tell their friends about their backpack．
B. Kids should know about themselves first before sharing．
C. Kids need to find out what others think of them first．
D. Kids’feelings are the same in a way．
34. What might happen after sharing your feelings with others?
A. You’11 recover from your illness． B. Your worries will magically disappear．
C. You’11 like more private talks． D. You will feel relieved．
35. Where is this passage probably taken from?

I am writing to you about the discussion we recently had about whether it is good or not for families to have private cars.
With the development of people’s living conditions, more and more people have their own cars. Some of us think it is good to have private cars. Firstly, it is a convenient, fast and comfortable means of transportation tool. You can go to any places at any time. Secondly, it shows people are becoming richer and the county stronger. It also makes businesses and industries develop faster. However, others have different opinions. They think cars give off waste gas, and pollute the environment. Too many cars will have bad effects, such as more accidents. Besides, parking cars is another problem. Maybe people should think carefully before they buy a car.
