B)Read the following three passages and follow the instructions for each section.(阅读下面的三篇短文,然后按短文后的要求完成所给出的题目。) A

Do you send messages on your cellphone? Do you email your friends? Do you chat on the Internet? Then you are part of the language revolution. Computers and technology are changing the language. When people type on the computer or send cellphone messages, they usually want to do it quickly.

An email is electronic mail. You send it to people from a computer. Emails don't have a long history. The world lived without emails for a very long time. People used faxes or the post office to send letters. Now, we can send emails, and things are much faster. We all need emails because they are easy, and almost everyone has access to the Internet.

Since people send emails, they don't write any more. Regular mail is slower than email, and people call it “snail mail”. A snail is a very slow creature, and regular mail is slow, too. People don't write letters any more, and it is sad. People like to receive letters because it shows the time and care of the letter writer. It is nice to receive a kind letter from a friend. You can keep letters in a pretty box and read them again later. You can also keep emails, but must people just erase them. Also, people don't try to write well in emails. They just write short messages. Emails are helpful, but we miss old-fashioned letters too.

Questions 51-55: Fill in the blanks using suitable words according to the passage above. Use only one word for each blank.

Emails are a kind of computer mails, which don't have a long (51)____. Emails are (52)____ and (53)____ than regular mails, which are called“snail mails”. But emails are not as nice to receive as regular mails. People don't write them

(54)____, and they usually don't (55)____ their emails. Emails are not as special as old-fashioned letters.

Reading is a very important skill. Reading is also an excellent way to improve your English. However, to make sure what you read isn't too difficult, it's important to know what makes texts difficult and how you can improve your understanding of them. Here are some suggestions:

1.Understand the purpose of your reading. The way you read something depends very much on your reasons for reading it. The kind of reading you do in class or for your homework is different from how you read a novel for pleasure in the summer holidays.

2.Find background information. Find something out about the topic you are

going to read. (61)The more background information you have, the easier it'll be to understand the text. You can get this background information in your own language.

3.Increase your vocabulary. Of course, reading itself is an excellent way to improve your vocabulary, but there are many other things you can do. The more vocabulary you have, the easier your reading will be.

4.Use your dictionary correctly. (62)A common mistake is to read everything very slowly and carefully, looking up each unknown word. Sometimes this is necessary, for example, when reading exam questions. However, it takes a long time and can be very boring;it can even make understanding more difficult!

If you've followed the above advice and still can't understand a text, then it's simply too hard for your. Stop reading and ask someone to help you. Nobody likes to give up, but you'll just be wasting your time if you continue to work at a text that's beyond you.

Questions 61-62: Translate the underlined sentences into Chinese.

Questions 63-65: Answer the following questions.

63.What are the above four suggestions about?

64.How can you get background information according to the passage?

65.What is an excellent way to improve your vocabulary?

B)One possible version:

In my opinion, teenagers should have a rest after school and on weekends. We should be allowed to go out with our classmates or friends to enjoy ourselves and relax well, and also have life experience outside of school. Some life experiences are more important than the lessons in school.

However, before we go out to relax, we should finish all our homework and should also let our parents know we are safe and we won't allow these activities to interfere with our school work.
