Jack Wang, a high school student, just moved to the United States with his family last month. Today
is Jack’s first day at his new school, and he is 1 nervous that he just stands at the gate worriedly. The
students 2 walk past him are chatting and do not seem to notice him. Jack just does not have the 3 to
ask for help. At that time, the principal sees Jack and finds him 4 confused. She comes over, says “hi”,
and tries to help him. In her office, she gives Jack a class schedule and asks him to go to his homeroom
5 the beginning of the school day. She also tells Jack that he 6 check out his class schedule really
carefully because he then has to go to many other classrooms for different classes. After Jack leaves the
principal’s office, he 7 for his locker. A friendly Asian boy is standing 8 him. He says “hi” and
introduces himself. After talking with him for a while, Jack is surprised 9 that classes end much earlier
in the U.S. Though there are many differences, Jack still has 10 hopes of having a wonderful life here.
And now he cannot wait to start his second day at school.

High school is a busy, important time for students. “What high school life is like for students around
the world?” Many students may have 1 . After having some 2 with students from different countries,
they'll learn that different countries have different expectations for their teenagers. Therefore, students' 3
can vary from country to country.
For instance, some high school students in Taiwan spend plenty of time in school. School starts at
about 7:00 am and doesn't end until 5:00 pm. Afterward, these students usually go to cram school where
they prepare for the college entrance exams. Thus, they usually go home late at night. Parents don't expect
them to do housework or get a part-time job because they hope their children can concentrate on their
study without being 4 .
In the United States, high school classes usually begin around the same time, but most students flood
into the 5 and head for their lockers in the early afternoon because they are done with classes by half
past two. Many students spend the rest of their time doing part-time jobs in order to pay for a car or save
for college tuition. Though most parents agree that schoolwork is important, they have also 6 their
children to have time for the activities they enjoy. It is a part of learning 7 time management. That way,
students can develop other useful skills and also make more new friends with different people. These
open the door for more opportunities for success in their future.
On the other hand, in Denmark, the high school program each student attends depends on whether
they are planning to go to college or start working right after graduation. Students there may not feel as
8 about the long hours at school every day as students in Taiwan do—some days, the students go to
school from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm, but other days, school ends two hours earlier. By the way, like
Americans, many Danish students work after school.
It is 9 that high school students all around the world are busy. However, since not all countries
expect the same things from their students, the 10 the students around the world play may be
different. The high school experience is also different from person to person.

Welcome international students from Asia! We are senior students from student council . We believe
you are excited and nervous to enter our school. And we are here to help you fit in. First, you must have
noticed the differences between the schools in America and the ones in Asia. The biggest difference is that
classes end around half past two here, so you don’t need to hurry home for dinner. Instead, there are many
other things for you to do after school. For example, there are student clubs, part-time jobs, or different
kinds of sports. Besides studying, you will gain a lot from these choices as well. Be sure to make plans
ahead so that you can make the most of your school life. Second, you have to check out your class
schedule very carefully. Your homeroom is just the place where you go to at the beginning of the school
day. Don’t just stay there; move to different classrooms according to the class schedule. If you have too
many things with you, you can store them in your locker. And finally, the cafeteria is the place where you
can have lunch and make new friends. We do hope you can get used to the life here soon.

Thailand has had a monarchy since ancient times, and since then, kings have pardoned criminals. In early times, kings often acted as judges and decided the fate of their citizens. This relationship has often
been compared to that of father and child. The father has to be strict, so his children will obey him. But at
the same time, he must show love and care.
Although Thailand now has a separate judicial branch, the king still keeps the power to pardon
people. A special tradition has developed where the king will pardon several people on his birthday each
year. To be eligible, prisoners must behave well in prison and express sorrow for their crimes. Many
people beg the king to release their family members in letters to the king.
In 2011, the king pardoned 26,000 people because he wanted to give these people a second chance.
In 2007, a Swiss man was arrested and sentenced to ten years in jail for spray-painting images of the king.
In Thailand, any criticism against the monarchy is treated as a serious crime. After reviewing his case, the
king decided to pardon him so he could go home. It is not hard to see the king's mercy in this case and
others, and it sets a good example for all Thais and also makes him a more loved figure to his people.
______ 1. According to the passage, which of the following is NOT one of the advantages of pardoning
prisoners in Thailand?
(A) It sets a good example for all Thais.
(B) The king will be more loved by his people.
(C) The Thais can write criticism against the king.
(D) The king can show his love for his people.
______ 2. Based on the passage, which of the following statements is true?
(A) There had been no royal pardon in Thailand in history.
(B) Kings in Thailand are described as people's friends. 5 (C) If criminals behave well in prison, they will have a chance to be pardoned.
(D) The king shares the power to pardon people with the separate judicial branch.
______ 3. The word “eligible” in the second paragraph refers to “
(A) being rightly judged (B) being allowed to be chosen (C) returning a favor (D) criticizing someone bitterly .” ______ 4. According to the passage, which of the following rules in Thailand remains the same in the
past and in the present?
(A) The role of the king as a judge has never changed.
(B) A royal pardon now only takes place when the new king begins to rule.
(C) The judicial branch is less strict than before.
(D) The king continues to be like the father who punishes and pardons his children.
______ 5. What is the author's attitude towards the tradition of the royal pardon in Thailand?
(A) The author doesn't want criminals to be freed.
(B) The author agrees to it.
(C) The author thinks the tradition shouldn't exist in modern times.
(D) It is not mentioned.

1 the saying goes, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Many wonderful devices were developed just to 2 simple needs. The Post-it note is a good example that can 3 this point.
When Spencer Silver, the inventor of the Post-it note, was trying to invent a strong glue and
experimenting with different chemicals, he made a very weak 4 by accident. Then he began to think what a weak glue could be used for and was excited to tell others in his company 5 important his invention might be. They did not believe him, 6 . But later Art Fry, Silver’s co-worker, proved that the
weak glue was useful. One day, as Fry was 7 that his bookmarks kept falling out of his hymn book, he
thought, “If I could mark the right page without damaging the book, that 8 great.” Suddenly, he came
up with the idea of using Silver’s weak glue 9 a piece of paper, and that worked! Fry shared this experience with his fellow workers and the company decided to 10 his idea into 10 . Thus, the Posit-it
note was born and then successfully spread around the world.

The roads can be dangerous places because of speeders, drunk drivers, and people watching televisions and talking into cell phones while they're behind the wheel. Because the number of cars is
increasing, traffic jams become more common in big cities. One way to all these problems may be to put
the driver out of the picture altogether by letting cars do the 1 driving.
The idea of self-driving cars has been around for a long time—the question is how to respond to the
2 challenges. One major problem is how to make a car “see” the road. One possible 3 is a system that
7 would rely on magnets buried in the road. Magnetic sensors on the bottom of the car would detect the
car's position and feed that information to a control computer. Another possibility is a computer vision
system, but a camera's ability to see what's ahead might 4 because of bad weather.
Another complex matter is how to make a car see and react to other cars and objects in front of it.
Two possible 5 are millimeter-wave radar and laser rangefinders. Scientists have been both of these technologies in some expensive cars. An 7 6 in using has also been carried out on wireless communication technology to let cars keep “talking” to each other to make sure that there is always a safe
distance between vehicles.
Organizing all this information about the road, other vehicles, and what's ahead into actual steering,
speed, and braking adjustments is the next big challenge. In a driver-less car, controllers would have to
physically replace “the driver.” It is 8 for these motors to make the adjustments, all in the blink of an
eye, after receiving signals from the control computer.
Scientists and car 9 are hard at work on these problems. Most experts don't 10 self-driving cars to
become a reality within the present decade. It's likely only a matter of time.

invented a faucet controlled by a built-in sensing device, which earned him a large amount of money and
changed people’s habit of using faucets. Since then, Teng has invented more than 200 things that make
people’s lives a lot easier, including flush toilet, Bluetooth Headset on the mobile phone, and Blueray
