2.(8分)The moment I see a beautiful cloud while driving,taking in the colorful light during a sunset,or watching birds flying south,I begin to think what we are supposed to learn from nature and animals.Nature does not hurry,yet everything is accomplished.As seasons change,we are guided to learn acceptance and non﹣resistance.A green leaf doesn't resist turning red when autumn approaches.Trees don't resist leaves falling when winter arrives.They stand deeply rooted in the ground,with their vulnerability out in the open and branches spread wide,giving up to the universe.Do what you will with me;I trust it is for my highest good.

  Who said that the bamboo is more beautiful than the maple tree and maple tree is more valuable than the bamboo?Does the bamboo feel jealous of the maple tree because it is bigger and its leaves change color?The idea of trees comparing themselves to others is ridiculous,as should humans comparing themselves to one another.We must compare our growth to who we were yesterday not to the growth of another.Everyone is incomparably unique.

  The community of bees and ants all participate together to benefit all those in their community.We each have our own calling that is best performed by us.Each part is necessary for a functioning family,community,nation and world.Embrace your special responsibility,share it proudly with the world,and always do your best.

  Birds flying through the sky represent the limitless freedom and potential available to us if we release our fears.Taking off to fly for the first time can be scary and bring about feelings of fear.Without taking the risk of the first flight,we won't find the internal freedom we desire.We must dare to take our feet off the ground,spread our wings and fly.

(1)What does the underlined word "vulnerability" in paragraph 2 mean?     





(2)What does the example of the bamboo and the maple tree indicate?     

A.We humans should learn from one another.

B.There is no sense in comparing different plants.

C.Everyone has his own quality and strengths.

D.Each part is necessary for a functioning world.

(3)What can we learn from bees and ants?     





(4)Which is the main idea of this text?     

A.Acceptance and non﹣resistance are the law of nature.

B.The bamboo is more beautiful than the maple tree.

C.Animals' way of living has changed human's life.

D.Humans can learn from nature and animals.

3.(8分)Latin and the works of Sophocles(索福克勒斯,诗人)are no longer the preserve of private schools thanks to a project that links professors with underprivileged teenagers.

  The new project between King's College London(KCL)and Newham Sixth Form College in east London offering lessons in Classics to bright senior﹣three students is now in its second year.

  Students from disadvantaged backgrounds with high academic potential can attend the classes,which are designed to inspire and engage them in challenging topics that are often the preserve of private schools.

  Lecturers cover subjects including ancient literature,religion,theology,Persian history and philosophy.Some teenagers from neighbouring state schools also attend.The students act out Greek plays such as Antigone by Sophocles and are encouraged to consider Classics as a degree.

  Edith Hall,a Classics lecturer at KCL,said:"We wanted to enable the students from Newham to understand the richness and relevance of the classical world.They have a unique opportunity to engage with world﹣class lecturers,"

  Juned Malek,19,who is in his first year at KCL,was introduced to literature,theology,history and philosophy by the classical outreach program when he was at Newham.He now helps to run it.He said the program was "essential in making the myths that surround studying Classics disappear,namely that it is an elitist(精英)subject or that it has limited career opportunities".

  The analytical skills that the degree develops are in high demand by employers,particularly investment banks and law firms.

  He said all schools should teach Classics to give a "basic introduction of historical principles passed down through millennia",adding:"A limited classical education leaves you stuck in the constant present,lacking the ability to use the past as a frame of reference when making decisions."

(1)Why do the professors start the project?     

A.To control the study time.

B.To help the underprivileged students.

C.To help the talented students from KCL.

D.To inspire and engage all students in challenging topics.

(2)According to the text,who may attend the classes?     

A.A naughty student with no talent in study.

B.A bright student with a talent for music.

C.A clever student with disadvantaged background.

D.A talented student with private school learning background.

(3)According to the text,which is one of the benefits of studying Classics?     

A.Being admitted to the private school.

B.Having limited career choices.

C.Observing the life of the elitists.

D.Having reference when making decisions.

(4)Which section in a magazine is this text most likely from?     





4.(8分)Authorities in China have approved a drug for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease(早老性痴呆),the first new medicine with the potential to treat the cognitive(认知的)disorder in 17 years.

  The seaweed﹣based drug,called Oligomannate,can be used for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer's,according to a statement from China's drug safety agency.The approval is conditional however,meaning that while it can go on sale during additional clinical trials,it will be strictly monitored and could be withdrawn if any safety issues should arise.

  In September,the team behind the new drug,led by Geng Meiyu at the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica under the Chinese Academy of Sciences,said they were inspired to look into seaweed due to the relatively low incidence of Alzheimer's among people who consume it regularly.

  In a paper in the journal Cell Research,Geng's team described how a sugar contained within seaweed prevents certain bacteria contained in the gut(肠子)which can cause neural decline and infection of the brain,leading to Alzheimer's.

  This mechanism was confirmed during a clinical trial carried out by Green Valley,a Shanghai based pharmaceutical company that will be bringing the new drug to market.

  Conducted on 818 patients,the trial found that Oligomannate﹣which is got from brown algae(海藻)﹣can statistically improve cognitive function among people with Alzheimer's in as little as four weeks,according to a statement from Green Valley."

  The company said Oligomannate will be available in China "very soon",and it is currently seeking approval to market it abroad,with plans to launch third﹣phase clinical trials in the US and Europe in early 2020.

(1)What can Oligomannate be used for?     

A.Curing the severe Alzheimer's.

B.Treating the minor Alzheimer's.

C.Killing all bacteria in the body.

D.Treating all cognitive disorders.

(2)What inspired the team to look into the seaweed?     

A.The praise from a patient with Alzheimer's.

B.An incident of brain infection in the laboratory.

C.The approval for the seaweed research from the authorities.

D.The low occurrence of the disease among people eating the seaweed.

(3)What causes the Alzheimer's?     

A.The brown algae.

B.The wound of the head.

C.Some bacteria contained in the gut.

D.A sugar contained within seaweed.

(4)What is the company Green Valley's attitude to the future of Oligomannate?     







Protecting Yourself Against COVID﹣19
