This is a tale of two friends --- one is blind, the other has no arms. On their own, the two are “disabled”. But together, they are a powerful team that has changed part of their village in North China’s Hebei Province into a rich, green forest. Meet 53-year-old Jia Haixia and Jia Wenqi!

Their story began in 2000, when Haixia, who was already blind in his right eye, lost his left one after an illness. Wenqi lost his arms in an accident when he was just three. Neithercould find a job, so the two decided to team up. They rented some poor land and began to plant trees. In return, the local officials paid them a small fee. Haixia and Wenqi never imagined that they would end up creating an environmental paradise. Their forest now has over 10,000 trees, hundreds of birds and many other wild animals. In addition, it saves the village from river flooding during the rainy season. When the friends work together, they focus on their strengths not their disabilities. Their day begins at 7 a.m. when the sightless Haixia carries Wenqi across the river to get to their worksite. Since they cannot afford to buy young trees to plant, the two use branches from existing trees. Haixia climbs to the tree-top and with Wenqi’s direction, selects the perfect branch. He then digs a hole and carefully plants it. Finally Wenqi waters the area.

Though hard-working, the men don’t make much money. But as Wenqi puts it, “.”

Neither Haixia nor Wenqi cares about money. Together, they already have everything they need --- a perfect pair of eyes, two strong hands, and the best friendship in the world!

C. They wanted to improve the environment. D. They were required to do so by local offcials.

47. Haixia and Wenqi’s forest has helped the village by______ .

48. Why do Haixia and Wenqi plant tree branches?

A. They are easy to get. B. They do not cost money.

C. They can grow very quickly. D. They are preferred by animals.

49. In paragraph 5, when Wenqi says “We stand on our own feet, so the fruits of our work taste sweeter”, he means that “______”.

A. they hope to make the forest even better B. the fruits from their trees are very sweet

C. they are proud not to depend on others D. they are able to do any difficult work

50. What can we learn from this story?

Most of us probably live without vegetables, but a world without chocolate? Now that would be hard! According to chocolate makers it could happen if we don’t act soon.

There are two main causes of the chocolate shortage --- chocolate’s growing popularity and less production of cocoa, the plant from which chocolate is made. With more and more people in India and China loving chocolate, not much can be done about the first cause.

Therefore, the only thing we can do is to increase cocoa production. However, new plant diseases and little rain in Ivory Coast and Ghana, the world’s largest producers, have reduced cocoa production by 40 percent in the past 10 years. What’s worse, many cocoa farmers in Africa and other cocoa-producing countries like Indonesia and Venezuela are changing to easier-to-grow crops such as corn or rubber. This way, the farmers can make more money.

To prevent more farmers from changing, researchers at the newly opened International Cocoa Control Centre, in the UK, are trying to create new cocoa plants that are stronger and faster

growing. But first they must make sure the new plants are safe to grow. This takes a long time.

First, each new plant is stored at the Control Centre for six months to make sure it is healthy. It is then planted in the Centre’s fields, studied and tested for another two years. Only after

scientists are certain that they’re disease-free, will the plants be sent to farmers in West Africa or wherever else they are needed.

To create new stronger types of cocoa, scientists at the Centre are combining the best parts from different cocoa plants. Though the world is facing a serious chocolate shortage, there is now hope!

51. The first paragraph tells us that______.

A. chocolate is healthier than vegetables B. the world could soon be without chocolate

C. people love vegetables more than chocolate D. it’s not necessary to eat so much chocolate

52. In which countries has chocolate become more popular in recent years?

A. Venezuela and Indonesia. B. Ivory Coast and Ghana.

C. Indonesia and China. D. China and India.

53. Cocoa farmers are choosing to grow rubber and corn because these crops______.

A. can make them more money B. need less rain to grow

C. can be planted more times each year D. are not damaged by plant diseases

54. How long does it take scientists at the Centre to make sure a cocoa plant is safe to grow?

A. 6 months. B. 12 months. C. 24 months. D. 30 months.

55. What is one of the purposes of the Cocoa Control Centre?

A. To introduce cocoa production to more countries.

B. To provide more chocolate for British people.

C. To produce stronger types of cocoa plants.

D. To make sure that cocoa is healthy to eat.


On March 3, 1887, the lives of two amazing women were changed forever when Anne

Sullivan, a poor university graduate, arrived at the home of the wealthy Keller family to teach theirsix-year-old daughter Helen. It was a difficult job as Helen was unable to see, hear or speak because of illness.

Anne had been suggested to the Kellers by her university professor, a close friend of Mr. Keller. Before she arrived, Anne expected her new pupil to be a quiet, weak child. But Helen was nothing like that. When Anne first walked through the Kellers’ door, the energetic Helen nearly knocked her over in her hurry to feel Anne’s face, clothing and bag.

Helen was used to visitors bringing her sweets, and angrily tried to force open Anne’s case to take her candy. But Anne calmed her down by allowing Helen to play with her watch. So began one of the most successful student-teacher relationships in history.

Anne Sullivan was only twenty years old when she began teaching Helen. She had to not only teach the child all the usual school subjects, but also control Helen’s sometimes wild

behaviour. Her well-meaning parents allowed Helen to do as she liked at home. Realizing that such an environment was unsuitable for learning, Anne requested that she and Helen live in a small house nearby.

As soon as Helen began learning, it became clear that she was especially intelligent. She

quickly learned to read and write, and by the age of ten she could also speak.

In 1900, Helen started studying at Radcliffe University, and graduated first in her class in 1904. She was the very first blind and deaf person to get a university degree. How did she do it? Anne Sullivan read all of Helen’s books and then signed the information into her hand. Anne

remained at Helen’s side until her death in 1936. Helen became a world-famous writer, and fought for disabled people’s rights until her death on Jun 1, 1968.

56. How did Anne come to work at the Kellers’ home?

A. She replied to a job advertisement.

B. She was introduced by her family friend.

C. she was recommended by her university professor.

D. She met Mr. Keller while studying at university.

57. What surprised Anne most about Helen when they first met?

A. How intelligent Helen was.

B. Helen gave Anne a gift.

C. The way Helen’s parents treated her.

D. How forceful Helen was.

58. According to the passage, Helen’s parents______.

A. allowed her to do as she wished B. gave her too many gifts and sweets.

C. did not spend much time with her D. cared little about her education.

59. Which of the following is NOT true about Helen’s university studies?

A. She was greatly helped by Anne. B. She was the best student in her class.

C. She was able to graduate in three years. D. She was the first deaf and blind university graduate.

60. According to the passage, both Anne and Helen______.

A. died in their 60s B. were well educated C. came from rich families D. fought for human rights
