In some science fiction movies, evil robots refuse to die, no matter how hard people fight back.

Now science fiction has become science fact. For the first time, scientists have made a robot that can take a beating (挨打) and keep on going. Scientists from Cornell University made the robot, which looks like a spider with four legs.

Until now, even the most advanced (先进的) robot was almost certain to break down when it was damaged. That is because its computer inside simply doesn’t know how to make the machine work after its shape has changed.

To deal with this problem, the scientists put eight motors (发动机) and two sensors (传感器) that read how the machine is working. They all give signals to the machine’s software. Using this information, the computer can then figure out the machine’s shape??????? at any moment.

The new technology is a big advance in robot-making, scientists say, and it’s far from scary. It may someday help scientists create better artificial (假的) arms and legs and give new freedom to people who losethem. It might also help scientists understand how people and animals figure out their own sense of place in space.

“It has been difficult to design robots that can work well when the environment changes or when it’s damaged,” says Olaf Sporns of Indiana University in US. “With this work, we are nearer to solving this problem.”

1.Why do robots easily break down when they are damaged?

A.They cannot repair themselves.

B.The computer has changed a lot.

C.They have no computers inside.

D.The computer cannot work if the robot changes.



2.The new technology allows the robot to _________. house work for humans

B.keep working after being damaged

C.remember a lot of information

D.tell people where it is

3.The underlined word “them” in Paragraph 5 refers to ________.



C.arms and legs


4.How do the sensors in the robot work?

A.They can replace the computer when it’s broken.

B.They can find out where the damage comes from.

C.They help the computer learn the robot’s condition.

D.They can send signals to the person who uses the robot.


??? On January 27, in order to win the new pneumonia Resistance War (抗新型肺炎战)? , the Ministry of Education issued (公布) a notice on putting off the start time of school in spring 2020. It was said that school should not start before February 17. The exact start time of school will depend on situations and further notices.

However, many parents are very worried that putting off the start of school may affect children's studies. If they have such a long winter vacation, children will not learn any knowledge, read books or study at all. They may forget what they have learned before. Staying at home for a long time will make them keep eating, sleeping and playing, which seriously affect their physical and mental health.

In short, the close of school influences learning and develops bad habits, so how should we avoid these problems? Local education departments have also issued a notice, that is, to organize online teaching and create a network platform (平台) , where necessary courses will be shown every day, and online teaching will be given by excellent teachers of the subject, and students can learn at home through computer or mobile network.

It should be said that such a method is very good. It can not only keep students indoors and not worry about the infection (感染) of the disease, but also make them study at home, improve their learning ability, and truly achieve "no suspension of classes". Both the platform itself and the recorded lesson resources are more useful, and are welcomed by parents and teachers.

Of course, except for learning at home, it is also necessary to teach children about health knowledge, especially how to keep away from touching virus and other knowledge popularization; at the same time, it is also necessary for children to do some physical exercises or some games, which is good for physical health at home.

1.Parents worried about putting off the start time of school because________.

A.children may be infected by virus

B.they don't like the idea of online learning

C.children's study may be affected

D.parents have no time to look after children

2.The underlined word "suspension" in Paragraph 4 probably means________.

A.plan B.stop C.growth D.change

3.Which is TRUE according to the passage?

A.Students would rather go to school.

B.The date of going to school is decided.

C.Online teaching will help students study.

D.Parents believe children can teach themselves.

4.What's the best title for this passage?

A.A Special Way to Learn at Home

B.A New War with a New Chance

C.A Way to Keep Mentally Healthy

D.A Method to Make Parents Worried

Every Sunday morning, I take a light jog around a park near my home. There’s a lake in one corner of the park. Each time I jog by this lake, I see the same elderly woman sitting by the lake with a small metal cage beside her.

Last Sunday, my curiosity (好奇心) got the better of me, so I stopped jogging and walked over to her. As I got closer, I found that inside the metal cage were three turtles, slowly walking around. She had a fourth turtle on her lap (大腿) that she was carefully brushing.

??? “Hello,” I said. “I’d love to know what you’re doing with these turtles.”

??? She smiled. “I’m cleaning their shells,” she replied. “Anything on a turtle’s shell, like algae (海藻) or scum (浮沫), stops the turtle from swimming. It can also weaken the shell over time. I’m doing this to help the turtles. It’s my own way of making a difference.”

??? “Wow! That’s really nice of you! But there are turtles living in lakes all around the world. And few of these turtles have kind people like you to help them clean their shells. So how exactly are you sure that you are truly making a difference?” I questioned. 

??? The woman laughed aloud. She then looked down at the turtle on her lap, brushed the last piece of algae from its shell, and said, “Sweetie, every act of kindness matters. If this little guy could talk, he’d tell you I just made all the difference in the world.”

Would you like to be comfortable talking to other people? Holding conversations may help. Holding conversations may not seem like a skill. After all, everyone talks to other people frequently. But talking to new people makes many people nervous.

Here are some ways to make conversations more fun and less awkward (尴尬的).

Body language

As strange as it may seem, much communication happens without any words. The way you stand and act tells people a lot about you. When you’re talking with someone, stand up straight and look them in the eye. This shows your confidence. And if you’re nervous, acting like you aren’t can help you feel better. When you’re listening, look at the other person. Lean forward to show that you’re interested in what they’re saying.

Back and forth

A good conversation is not a speech, which means that both people need to participate. If you’re doing all the talking, pause to allow the other person to speak. If they don’t say anything, try asking them a question.

Questions can also help if you’re struggling (挣扎) to think what to say. Maybe they’ll say something you know or you can reply to. When you ask questions, try to think of open-ended ones. That means questions where the answer is more than just “yes” or “no”. Open-ended questions in English usually start with who, what, when, where and why.

Don’t fear silence.

Don’t feel worried or frightened if the conversation has quiet moments. Every conversation has some. Treat them as chances to change the subject to something you’re interested in. You could also comment on (评论) something you’ve done recently. Or you can ask a question about the other person.

So if you’re shy, be brave, ask a question, and start a conversation. As with any skill, you will improve on holding conversations with time.

Learn to be 1. talking to others


Everyone needs to talk to others often. But talking to new people makes many people nervous. Holding conversations may be of some 2. to you.

??? The clock struck twelve.

Scrooge looked around him for the Ghost, but he couldn’t see it. Then he remembered old Jacob Marley’s prediction. He lifted his eyes, and he saw a serious Ghost. The ghost wore a black robe (长袍). The robe covered its head, its face and its body. The only thing visible was a hand. The ghost neither spoke nor moved. Scrooge was terrified. 

“Are you the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come?” asked Scrooge.

The Ghost didn’t answer, but it pointed its hand in front of it.

“You are going to show me the future,” Scrooge continued. “Am I right, Ghost?”

The Ghost nodded its head. That was the only answer Scrooge received.

“Ghost of the Future,” he said, “I’m more afraid of you than of all the other ghosts. But because I want to be a better man, I will go with you. Please, speak to me.”

It didn’t reply. The hand pointed straight in front of them.

“Lead on!” said Scrooge.

The Ghost moved forwards. Scrooge followed in the shadow of its robe. And the robe carried him along. The city suddenly appeared around them. There they were, in the heart of it. The Ghost stopped beside some businessmen at the Stock (股票) Exchange. Its hand was pointing to them, so Scrooge listened to their conversation. 

“I only know he’s dead,” said a great fat man.

“When did he die?” asked another.

“Last night, I think.”

“What was the matter with him?” asked a third.

“God knows,” said the first, with a yawn.

“What has he done with his money?” asked a red-faced gentleman.

“I don’t know,” said the great fat man, yawning again. “He hasn’t left it to me. That’s all I know.”

Everybody laughed.

“It will be a very small funeral (葬礼),” said the great fat man. “I don’t think anybody will go to it.”

Scrooge knew the men. And he looked towards the Ghost for an explanation. He didn’t understand why this conversation was important. But he knew it must be. 

Scrooge looked around the place. He looked at the clock. It was strange. He was usually there at this time, but he couldn’t see himself.

??? Loneliness, a natural feeling, is not something most people want to experience. When you feel lonely as a result of missing a loved one or a place, or preparing for a time spent away from your friends and family, here are some suggestions for you to avoid it.

Focus on your health

Studies have shown that poor sleep, lack of physical activity and unhealthy food can let you feel tired and sad, causing the feeling of loneliness. Try to get eight hours of sleep every night, try to take part in at least 30 minutes of physical activity, and don’t eat junk food. Eating more fruits and vegetables will also help.

Bring an old hobby back to life

It’s much more difficult to feel lonely if you’re actively enjoying an activity, especially one that you are good at. If you’ve got a hobby that you love, try to spare time for your hobby even if you are busy, such as reading, playing a sport, cooking, painting ...

Avoid staying at home all day long

Spending your time in nature will probably improve your feelings and help you get over loneliness. Sunshine makes you feel happier and less focused on your loneliness. You can go hiking, go boating or go on a bike ride if you are not interested in just walking around. You may go for a coffee with your friends or even make big plans so that you have events to look forward to. First, you can make possible activities you might want to take part in, then, spend a few days planning out the event, so that you are fully prepared and stress-free. If possible, include other people in your plan to make your activity more interesting.

All in all, it seems that facing your own loneliness is the first step to avoid loneliness. Do your best to follow the things above. It takes efforts, but it is worth your try.

1.Why do people feel lonely?

A.Because they live in a poor place.

B.Because they miss their loved people.

C.Because they like to experience that feeling.

D.Because they don’t want to stay with their friends and family.

2.Which of the following can make people feel lonely?

A.Junk food. B.Enough sleep.

B.Enjoy the sunshine and you can feel less lonely.

C.Spending time at home alone can help avoid loneliness.

4.What is the main idea of the passage?
