During the COVID-19 pandemic, Julia began her second year as a first grade teacher in an online classroom.One September afternoon,she received a call from Cynthia, who was having technical difficulties with her granddaughter's tools for online learning.
Julia immediately knew something was wrong with Cynthia.The two women had spoken many times before, but Julia had never heard she sounded quite like this. Her words were so jumbled that Julia could barely understand her.Julia called her headmaster,Charlie, who convinced her that he would call and check on Cynthia himself.
Just like Julia, Charlie could barely understand Cynthia.He suspected she might be having a stroke（中风）—he recognized the signs from when his own father had suffered one. Charlie immediately became concerned that Cynthia's two grandchildren, ages six and eight, were probably home alone with her and scared. Charlie asked his office manager to send an ambulance to the grandmother's home.
The quick response from Julia and Charlie saved Cynthia's life.She arrived at the hospital in time to get treatment before long-term damage occurred.Thanks to an extended stay in the hospital, she has regained most of the movement throughout her body except for one hand and a region of her mouth.
"I'm proud of the people I work with, that they responded so quickly and that it did make a difference to Cynthia,"says Julia."I am so pleased to be part of such a caring community."But the school's crisis response is only one piece of the community's extraordinary efforts to help Cynthia and her granddaughters.Another family with young children took in the two girls.
Virtual learning has been a challenge across the country,but it's fair to say that it has helped the community grow closer. Many teachers there gave their personal phone numbers to students and families in case they needed extra help.In this case,the exchange was literally life-altering.
24. Cynthia called Julia in order to____________.
A.complain about the poor contents of online learning.

26.How did Charlie decide that Cynthia might have suffered a stroke?

B.By using his professional knowledge to form the judgment.
C.By combining Julia's call with the granddaughters' description.
D.By identifying the symptoms that a stroke patient may have.
27. What does the author think of virtual learning?
A. It has caused much inconvenience to parents.

Time to load up some popular games: new research indicates pigs possess the mental capability to play video games. The study, published in Frontiers In Psychology,tested the ability of four pigs(Hamlet, Omelette Ebony and Ivory) 10 play a simple joystick (操纵杆) game with their noses,moving a cursor(光标)to four targets on the screen.Although the animals didn't demonstrate the skills to win a round any time soon, they did show an understanding of some elementary games.
Performing well above chance, the pigs appeared to recognize the movement of the cursor was controlled by the joystick. The fact that they did so well despite a lack of flexible fingers is"extraordinary", according to the researchers.
"It is no small achievement for an animal to grasp the concept hat the behaviour they are performing is having an affect elsewhere.That pigs can do this to any degree should give us pause as to what else they are capable of learning and how such learning may impact them,"said Purdue University's Dr Candace Croney, the study's lead author.
Researchers also noted that while the pigs could be taught to play the game using food as positive motivation, they also responded well to social interaction.In fact, when the game was made more challenging and the pigs became unwilling to participate in, "only oral encouragement by the experimenter"would see training continue.
These findings are the latest to highlight the intelligence of pigs. Not only have they been shown to use mirrors to find hidden food, but studies have also demonstrated how pigs can be taught to "come"and "sit"after oral commands.
"As with any sentient （有感觉力的） beings，how we interact with pigs and what we do to them impacts and mattes to them,"Croney said."We therefore have a moral duty to understand how pigs acquire information,and what hey are capable of learning and remembering, because it ultimately offer the potential for how they understand their interactions with us and their environments."
28. What can we learn from Paragraphs 1 and 2?
A. Pigs have the potential to play games well.
B. Pigs have noses as flexible as human hands
C. Pigs posses the mental ability we didn't know.
D. Pigs know well about what they are playing
29. What does the underlined word "this"in Paragraph 3 refer to?
A.Playing joystick games so well. B. Realizing the effects of their acts.
C. Carrying out tasks with their noses. D. Following human oral commands.
30. Which of the following can improve the performance of trained pigs?
A. Less challenging video games. B. A nice treat before the experiment.
C. Severe punishment if necessary. D. Inspiring words from experimenters.
31. What does the author think of the research findings?
A. They reflect the needs to interact more with animals.
B.They offer humans ideas of how to live with animals.
C.They encourage us to explore how pigs interact with us.
D. They show us how pigs interact with their environments.
With the social media freely available,I've realized how easy it is to become a jealous cow. The truth is that however much I remind myself of the many wonderful things I have in my life, there are still moments when I look at those around me and feel bitterly upset by their success.
It's a horrible thing to admit! In an ideal world, I'd never want to be jealous of another person's achievements and I'd want to celebrate the successes of my friends. But sometimes it's hard, even when we want to.But I don't want to live my life as a jealous cow,and I assume you don't either.
It's easier to celebrate other people's wins if you celebrate your own. How often do we take the time to enjoy our success rather than instantly move onto the next thing we want to achieve? Last year, I decided to write a book. It was the only professional goal I set for myself and, while it tired me out,I got there.But as soon as it was done,I started planning my next goal—making the book a success.As I saw other people publishing books,I stopped celebrating and instead began to fear that mine wouldn't compete.
When I told a friend how I was feeling, she reminded me how much easier it is to clap for someone else when we also clap for ourselves.So,I took myself out for lunch, ordered a glass of wine and wrote myself a congratulations card.When I saw all those other books being written on my social media,I felt proud of each and every one of us who had battled to the end of the word count.
The other trick for celebrating other people's success is to realize that there is no limit on success. We can make more, which means that while it might seem as if others have everything and we have nothing, the reality is that life turns quickly and our luck could change at any time.If others have achieved those things,we can too.When we celebrate others, we're acknowledging their achievements but also cheering for ourselves as well as for our hopes and dreams and our belief that we can make them happen. And hopefully when we do,those people will her for us too.
32. What can we infer from Paragraph 1?
A.Social media is the source of the author's jealousy
B.Frequent successes on social media encourage envy.
C.It is a pleasure to face others' successes on social media.
D.People tend to be crazy about immediate success online.
33.As far as the author is concerned,what should we do after achieving success?
A.Appreciate what's been done. B. Show it off on social media.
C. Reflect on gains and losses. D. Waite for others' congratulations.
34.One of the keys to removing jealousy lies in___________.
A.pursuing those achievable goals. B.devoting yourself o the next goal.
C. admitting personal incompetence. D.changing your attitude to success
35. What is the best title for the passage?
A. I'm so happy for us! B. What a considerate friend!
C. I don't care about it! D.How selfless you can be!

Preparing for exams? Give yourself the best chance with these study tips,and try not to let the stress get to you! Remember: you've got this.
Give yourself enough time to study. 36 While some students do seem to succeed depending on last-minute hard-work, it's widely accepted that this is not the best way. To help sort out your time management, set up a timetable for your study and organize it accordingly.
Use flow charts and diagrams. 37 At the start of a topic,challenge yourself to write down everything you already know about a topic—and then highlight where the gaps lie. Closer to the exam,simplify your revision notes into one-page diagrams, which can help you to quickly recall everything you need during the exam.
Explain your answers to others.Take advantage of your parents and little brothers and sisters around exam time. Explain an answer to a question to them. 38
39 You may think it's best to study for as many hours as possible.However,this can turn out to be the opposite. Studies have shown that for long-term memory of knowledge, taking regular breaks really helps.
Plan your exam day. 40 Don't leave it to the day before to suddenly realize you don't know the way, or what you're supposed to bring. Check all the rules and requirements, and plan your route and journey time.If possible,do a test run of the trip.If not, write down clear directions.
A. Take regular breaks.
B. Think about what works for you.
C. Don't leave it until the last minute.
D. Avoid developing any study routine.
E. That will help you to get it clear in your head.

She looked at her son with an excited expression, expecting an immediate response.However, her son wondered how she could remember her date of birth in this old age when she forgot so many other things, so he didn't pay much attention to this.
