30. Which is the most suitable word for 30 ?
Garrison had been treasuring his last piece. All he had left now was a sheet of the beautiful brown paper Pa had brought back from his last sailing trip.
"You’ve been quiet, " Pa said, "Could I see your picture? "
Garrison handed over his sketch. Pa studied it, then looked at his son. "You’re ten now, eh? " Garrison nodded, hoping Pa wouldn’t say that he was too old to be fooling around with pencils and paper.
"When I was ten, I wanted to work on my father’s ship, " Pa said, "When Thomas was ten, he asked me to let him plant the corn. "
Garrison’s throat (嗓子) tightened. "I know I’m not like either of you. " Pa looked at the drawing again.
"No, you are like both of us. You work hard, like Thomas. And you’re like me, too. I have wandering feet, but you have a wandering mind. We need to see things differently.
Garrison frowned. "I’d rather love the land, like Thomas, or the sea…"
Pa patted his hand. "Thomas cares about our family very much-that’s why he’s worked so hard to bring us food. And my love for the sea makes good money. But there’s more in life than food and money. There’s happiness, for one. Does it make you happy to draw? "
"And it makes me happy to look at your drawings. Not many folks can catch happiness on a piece of paper. Some might say drawing’s a waste of time, but they don’t understand how things are. Why, asking you to stop drawing like asking Thomas to stop farming, or me to stop going to sea. It would be like asking us to stop breathing, wouldn’t it? "
Garrison considered this, then replied, "No, sir. Not quite like breathing. If I couldn’t draw any more, it would be… like someone took away my voice. " He hung his head. In his mind he?could hear Thomas laughing, "It’s not like you ever speak up, anyway. "
But Pa patted his shoulder and said, "That would be a pure shame. Your voice is important, Garrison, whether it’s out loud or on paper. And speaking of paper…" Pa smiled. "Take a look in my bag. "
Garrison reached into the bag and found a sketchbook. For a moment he was speechless happiness seemed to fill his body and stick in his throat. Then he managed to find his voice. "Oh, Pa-thank you. "
31. Why did Garrison’s throat tighten?
A. Because he felt thirsty.
B. Because he felt very scared.
C. Because he knew he was not like Pa or Thomas.
D. Because he thought Pa would stop him drawing.
32. When Garrison frowned, he most probably felt _________________.
33. What can we infer from the passage about Garrison?
A. He lived in a big wealthy family.
B. He was his father’s favourite son.
C. He would go on with his drawing.
D. He would learn to work on the farm.
In 1845, a deadly disease struck the farms of Ireland, killing all the Lumper potato plants. In another place or time, the death of single crop species (物种) might not have been so important. But in Ireland, in 1845, people depended almost solely on the patato for food. The death of one species caused a terrible famine(饥荒). Now, some scientists are worried that such a famine could happen again, but on a much wider scale.
Over the centuries, farmers have discovered thousands of different species of food crops. Each species has special qualities. Some can be grown in very hot or cold climates. Others are not affected by certain diseases. However, you won’t find many of these species in your local supermarket. To feed the seven billion people on Earth, most farmers today are growing only species of plants and farming only species of animals that are easy to produce in large numbers.
For example, in the Philippines, there were once thousands of varieties of rice: now fewer than 100 are grown there. In China, 90 percent of the wheat varieties grown just a century ago have disappeared. Scientists believe that over the past century, we have allowed more than half of the world’s food varieties to disappear.
One solution to this problem is to collect and store the seeds (种子) as many different plant varieties as we can before they disappear. The idea was first suggested by Russian scientist Nikolay Vavilov. In the 1920s and 1930s, he collected around 400,000 seeds from five contients. More recently, others are continuing the work he began.
In the U.S. state of Iowa, Diane Ott Whealy wanted to protect?historic plant varieties, like the seeds her great –grandfather brought?to the U.S. from Germany more than a hundred years ago. She and her?husband started a place called Heritage Farm, where people can store?and trade seeds.
More importantly, the people at Heritage Farm don’t just store the seeds; they plant them. By doing this, they are reintroducing foods into the marketplace that haven’t been grown for years. These food species are not just special in terms of appearance or taste. They also offer farmers?food solutions for the future, from the past.
34. What is this passage mainly about?
A. The need to protect different food species.
B. How to increase the number of food species.
C. The fact that many food species are dying out.
D. How to prevent food species from disappearing.
35. Why are some scientists worried that such a famine could happen again?
A. Because people depend on certain species of food crops.
B. Because the same deadly disease may attack crops again.
C. Because the world’s population is larger than that in 1845.
D. Because farmers grow the same potatoes as those in the past.
36. The following sentence would best be placed at the end of _______________.
Meanwhile, thousands of other species are dying out.
A. Paragraph 1
B. Paragraph 2
C. Paragraph 3
D. Paragraph 4
37. What can we learn from the passage?
A. The disease spread very quickly and killed thousands of people in Ireland.
B. Around 80 percent of the rice varieties in the Philippines have disappeared.
C. People have been storing seeds to save plane varieties for less than 100 years.
D. Heritage Farm is the first place in the U.S. for people to store and trade seeds.

Britons are well known for drinking tea. The average (典型的) person in the UK drinks around 1.9 kg of tea every year. That’s around 876 cups of tea. Tea is drunk by all levels of society. But tea does not grow in Britain. Most tea grows in India and China. So, how did it become an important part of British culture?
Tea arrived in London in the 1600s. At this time, British ships were exploring the world and came across the drink in China. It was not long before green tea could be bought from the market. However, it was only for the rich people.
At the beginning of the 1700s, the amount（数量）of tea arriving in Britain increased rapidly . Black tea arrived at this time. At first this tea served exactly as it was in China. They soon discovered that it mixed really well with a little milk and sugar, giving the drink a special British colour.
In the 1800s, tea was still a product enjoyed only by people with money. At this time they began to have “afternoon tea”. They drank tea with a snack around 4 pm to avoid feeling hungry between lunch and dinner. It is a still going today but has become less popular in recent times.
It’s very important and _________________________________________.
