24.In which section of a website can you find the passage?
“Let’s go see Santa!” Samantha said，pointing.
I shrugged.I found out long ago that the real Santa doesn’t hang out in malls.He’s always too busy checking his list for kids twice and supervising the elves（小精灵）.
Last year，“Santa” had a tattoo on his arm.I pretended I didn’t notice and named all the toys I ever wanted，until he was about to kick me out.I like playing around with fake Santas.
We joined the line and after what seemed like ages，it was our turn.Samantha’s eyes were glowing with excitement as she listed her wishes.She went back to Mom and Dad with a delighted smile and some candies.
I sat on Santa’s lap and moved from side to side to get comfortable.He made a face.
“Have you been good this year? Ho! Ho!”
“Oh，yes! I played nicely with my sister，obeyed my parents，and teachers are fond of me.”
A suspicious smile appeared on his jolly face.“What would you like for Christmas，my boy?”
“Santa，I want a new teacher for Christmas.”
He got a little surprised and looked at me.“Don’t you want any new games，or a baseball mitt （手套）?”
“No.I want a new teacher who doesn’t give too much homework.I don’t have time to play anyway，with all those assignments I’m getting.”
It was worth waiting in line just to see the look on his face.He gave me a coloring book and a Christmas sticker.Just before I left，he pulled me closer and said in a low tone，“I’ll make sure Miss Coleman makes your wish come true.”
How did he … that voice … “Mr. Principal?”
I guess sometimes wishes do come true.I had a lighter workload until June!
25.Why did the author name all the toys?

Walk through the Amazon rainforest today and you will find it steamy，warm，damp and thick.But if you had been there around 15，000 years ago，during the last ice age，would it have been the same? For more than 30 years，scientists have been arguing about how rainforests might have reacted to the cold，dry climate of the ice ages，but till now，no one has reached a satisfying answer.
Rainforests like the Amazon are important for mopping up CO2from the atmosphere and helping to solve global warming.Currently the trees in the Amazon take in around 500 million tons of CO2 each year：equal to the total amount of CO2 given off in the UK each year.But how will the Amazon react to the future climate change? If it gets drier，will it survive and continue to draw down CO2? Scientists hope that they will be able to learn in advance how the rainforest will manage in the future by understanding how rainforests reacted to climate change in the past.
Unfortunately，collecting information is incredibly difficult . To study the past climate，scientists need to look at fossilized pollen （花粉）kept in lake mud.Going back to the last ice age means drilling down into lake sediments（沉淀物），which requires specialized equipment and heavy machinery . There are very few roads and paths，or places to land helicopters and aeroplanes.Rivers tend to be the easiest way to enter the forest，but this still leaves vast areas between the rivers completely unsampled（未取样）.So far，only a handful of cores have been drilled that go back to the last ice age and none of them provide enough information to prove how the Amazon forest reacts to climate change.
28.How do scientists study the past climate change?
A.By predicting the climate change in the future.
B.By drilling down deep into land sediments.
C.By taking samples from rivers in the Amazon.
D.By analyzing fossilized pollen in lake mud.
29.What is needed for drilling down into lake sediments?
A.The latest helicopter.
B.The special equipment.
C.The light machinery.
D.The narrow path.
30.What is the purpose of writing the passage?
A.To attract more people’s attent ion to CO2.
B.To call on people to protect rainforests.
C.To inform people of how scientists work on rainforests.
D.To warn people to stay away from the danger of rainforests.
31.The best title for the text may be .
A.Mystery of the Rainforest
B.Climates of the Amazon
C.The History of the Rainforest
D.Changes of the Rainforest
Whenever I talk about personality（个性）in relation to choosing a career，someone always complains like this：those tests are so stupid.When I was in the sixth grade，I took one of them and it said that I should be a farmer.While I don’t think I would be a very good farmer，the results are probably a lot more accurate（准确）than I’d like to admit.At the time，it seemed ridiculous—I hated the outdoors and physical work，and was particularly sick of being dirty or sweaty.Now，though，as I think in terms of personality，it might have had something to do with my personality：I like long-term planning，working by myself，and being the master of my own fate.
Personality tests are various，and some are complete nonsense. Be careful of any personality test that claims to be capable of concluding what your dream job is from your favorite food for breakfast，or by the type of animal you like best.While there are many personality assessments （评估）that are very accurate，I’d love to say that they are a second（and often expensive）step.The best choice is to find out about yourself for yourself.
Before determining the ways to examine your work preferences，it’s important to know the difference between liking a topic and liking the work.I once had a young guy who was a third-year marine （海洋的）biology student at a large state school in Ohio.He applied for and was placed into the Whale Watch program，where he found out that he became terribly seasick on any kind of boat—a big disadvantage for a student who thought he wanted to study whales in the wild.
32.What is some people’s opinion on choosing a career through personality tests?
A.It is well worth trying.
C.It’s of just a little help.
D.It might lead to failure.
33.What does the author think of the personality test she took when she was young?
A.She thinks it showed some part of her personality.
B.She admits it forecast her present job accurately.
C.She finds it helpless for her.
D.She has little interest in it.
34.What is the best way to know your personality?
A.Trying your dream job in real practice.
B.Doing accurate personality assessments.
C.Taking personality tests on your favourite things.
D.Knowing and understanding your own character.
35.Why was the marine biology student unsuitable for his job?
A.He liked his major but disliked the job.
B.He felt sick travelling on a boat.
C.He was somewhat afraid of marine animals.
D.He knew little about his preferences.

43 ，when I moved to another city eight years ago，I didn’t get to see them as much as I wanted to.Something always seemed to get in my 44 work，my dogs and，yes，the money to fly up for 45 visits.

It’s so close，and yet it always seemed so far away. 61 （get）to the rural district just a few hundred 62 （meter）away on the other side of the bay，native people used to have to jump on a boat or drive about 160 kilometers－part of that journey on 63 （dust）road.
Now anyone wanting to get from downtown Maputo，capital of Mozambique，to Katembe，or vice versa，can do so easily，and in a matter of minutes，thanks to the longest twin-tower suspension bridge in Africa，64 hangs over Maputo Bay.
“Mozambique had long planned to build a bridge linking the north and south of the bay，but nothing came of them because 65 a lack of money and technology，”said Wang Lijun，vice-president of China Road and Bridge Corporation（公司），which built 66 bridge.
The Maputo－Katembe Bridge 67 （open）in November after four years of construction，is part of the Maputo Bridge and Link Roads project which 68 （build）by CRBC. It 69 （be）187 kilometers long and serves as an important highway that directly links Maputo to the border with South Africa，to the south.
“By night，when the lights are on，it’s70 （especial）impressive，”Wang said，and as a landmark it could help develop tourism and attract overseas investment for Mozambique.
