Languages have been coming and going for thousands of years, but in recent times there has been less coming and a lot more going. When the world was sill populated by hunter-gatherers , small tightly knit (联系) groups developed their own patterns of speech independent of each other. Some language experts believe that 10000 years ago, when the world had just five to ten million people, they spoke perhaps 1200 languages between them.
Soon afterwards, many of those people started settling down to become farmers, and their languages too became more settled and fewer in number. In recent centuries, trade, industrialization, the development of the nation-state and the spread of universal compulsory education, especially globalization and better communications in the past few decades, all have caused many languages to disappear, and dominant languages such as English, Spanish and Chinese are increasingly taking over.
At present, the world has about 6800 languages. The distribution of these languages is hugely uneven. The general rule is that mild zones have relatively few languages, often spoken by many people, while hot, wet zones have lots, often spoken by small numbers. Europe has only around 200 languages; the Americas about 1000; Africa 2400; and Asia and the Pacific perhaps 3200, of which Papua New Guinea alone accounts for well over 800. The median number (中位数) of speakers is a mere 6000, which means that half the world's languages are spoken by fewer people than that.
Already well over 400 of the total of 6,800 languages are close to extinction (消亡), with only a few elderly speakers left. Pick, at random, Busum in Cameroon (eight remaining Speaker), Chiapaneco in Mexico (150), Lipan Apache in the United States (two or three) or Wadjigu in Australia (one, with a question-mark) none of these seems to have much chance of survival.
28. What can we infer about languages in hunter-gatherer times?
A. They developed very fast. B. They were large in number.
C. They had similar patterns. D. They were closely connected.
29. Which of the following best explains “dominant” underlined in paragraph 2?
A. Complex. B. Advanced.
C. Powerful. D. Modern.
30. How many languages are spoken by less than 6000 people at present?
A. About 6800 B. About 3400
C. About 2400 D. About 1200
31. What is the main idea of the text?
A. New languages will be created.
B. People’s lifestyles are reflected in fewer languages.
C. Human development results in fewer languages.
D. Geography determines language evolution.
细节题。由hunter-gatherer times定位到第一自然段，根据when the world had just five to ten million people, they spoke perhaps 1200 languages between them. 可是当时人少，但是语言很多。
猜题题。根据第二段后半部分dominant languages such as English, Spanish and Chinese are increasingly taking over, 列举的英语、西班牙语、中文等都是使用人数较多等语言，所以选择powerful。
细节题。根据第三段At present, the world has about 6800 languages和The
median number (中位数) of speakers is a were 6000 ,which means that half the world's languages are spoken by fewer people than that. 可知现在有3400种语言被少于6000人说。
主旨题，根据Languages have been coming and going for thousands of years, but in recent times there has been less coming and a lot more going .可知增加的语言少消失的语言多，且本文按照时间顺序写作，讲了随着人类发展，很多语言消失。所以选择C。
We may think we’re a culture that gets rid of our worn technology at the first sight of something shiny and new, but a new study shows that we keep using our old devices（装置）well after they go out of style. That’s bad news for the environment – and our wallets – as these outdated devices consume much more energy than the news ones that do the same things.
To figure out how much power these devices are using. Callie Babbitt and her colleagues at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York tracked the environmental costs for each product throughout its life – from when its minerals are mined to when we stop using the device. This method provided a readout for how home energy use has evolved since the early 1990s. Devices were grouped by generation. Desktop computers, basic mobile phones, and box-set TVs defined 1992. Digital cameras arrived on the scene in 1997. And MP3 players, smart phones, and LCD TVs entered homes in 2002, before tablets and e-readers showed up in 2007.
As we accumulated more devices, however, we didn't throw out our old ones. “The living-room television is replaced and gets planted in the kids’ room, and suddenly one day, you have a TV in every room of the house,” said one researcher. The average number of electronic devices rose from four per household in 1992 to 13 in 2007. We’re not just keeping these old devices – we continue to use them. According to the analysis of Babbitt’s team, old desktop monitors and box TVs with cathode ray tubes are the worst devices with their energy consumption and contribution to greenhouse gas emissions（排放）more than doubling during the 1992 to 2007 window.
So what's the solution（解决方案）? The team's date only went up to 2007, but the researchers also explored what would happen if consumers replaced old products with new electronics that serve more than one function, such as a tablet for word processing and TV viewing. They found that more on demand environment viewing on tablets instead of TVs and desktop computers could cut energy consumption by 44%.
32. What does the author think of new devices?
A. They are environment-friendly. B. They are no better than the old.
C. They cost more to use at home. D. They go out of style quickly.
33. Why did Babbitt's team conduct the research?
A. To reduce the cost of minerals. B. To test the life cycle of a product.
C. To update consumers on new technology. D. To find out electricity consumption of the devices.
34. Which of the following uses the least energy?
A. The box-set TV. B. The tablet.
C. The LCD TV. D. The desktop computer.
35. What does the text suggest people do about old electronic devices?
A. Stop using them. B. Take them apart.
C. Upgrade them. D. Recycle them.
根据第一段最后一句“That’s bad news for the environment – and our wallets – as these outdated devices consume much more energy than the news ones that do the same things.”可知，做同样的事，旧的过时的装置比新装置消耗更多能源，对环境有害。通过对比可知，新装置对环境有益，所以选A。B、C不对，D没提到。
根据第二段第一句“To figure out how much power these devices are using.”可知，Babbitt 团队组织这个研究是为了弄清这些装置使用多少能源，所以选D。当题干中出现why时，在原文中找to或because。
根据第二段“This method provided a readout for how home energy use has evolved since the early 1990s…before tablets and e-readers showed up in 2007.”可知，tablet便签是最新出现的，又因为第一段最后一句“That’s bad news for the environment – and our wallets – as these outdated devices consume much more energy than the news ones that do the same things.”可知，新装置比旧装置消耗能源少，所以tablet消耗最少的能源，选B
根据最后一段 “consumers replaced old products with new electronics” 可知，文章建议人们用新装置代替旧装置，所以选A，停止使用旧装置。
Color is fundamental in home design – something you’ll always have in every room. A grasp of how to manage color in your spaces is one of the first steps to creating rooms you’ll love to live in. Do you want a room that’s full of life? Professional? Or are you just looking for a place to relax after a long day? 36 , color is the key to make a room feel the way you want it to feel.
Over the years, there have been a number of different techniques to help designers approach this important point. 37 , they can get a little complex. But good news is that there’re really only three kinds of decisions you need to make about color in your home: the small ones, the medium ones, and the large ones.
38 . They’re the little spots of color like throw pillows, mirrors and baskets that most of us used to add visual interest to our rooms. Less tiring than painting your walls and less expensive than buying a colorful sofa, small color choices bring with them the significant benefit of being easily changeable.
Medium color choices are generally furniture pieces such as sofa, dinner tables or bookshelves. 39 . They require a bigger commitment than smaller ones, and they have a more powerful effect on the feeling of a space.
The large color decision in your rooms concern the walls, ceilings, and floors. Whether you’re looking at wallpaper or paint, the time, effort and relative expense put into it are significant. 40 .
A. While all of them are useful
B. Whatever you’re looking for
C. If you’re experimenting with a color
D. Small color choices are the ones we’re most familiar with
E. It’s not really a good idea to use too many small color pieces
F. So it pays to be sure, because you want to get it right the first time
G. Color choices in this range are a step up from the small ones in two major ways
36. B 上文中提到“你是否在寻找你意中的房间”并给出了几种选择。B选项承接了上句的问题，“无论你在寻找什么”并且引出了下句的答案“颜色是重要因素”。
37. A 选项中的them 指代上文中的 different techniques 和下文中的they 指代内容相同。
38. D 上一段末尾提到要介绍三种颜色选择，本段详细介绍第一种small color choice.
39. G 本段主要内容是medium color choice, 前半句承接上文中medium是small的升级，后半句引出下文的两种方式。
40. F 上文中提到时间、努力和相应的费用付出是巨大的，迎合F选项中so it pays to be sure.

While running regularly can’t make you live forever, the review says it 64 (be) more effective at lengthening life 65 walking, cycling or swimming. Two of the authors of the review also made a study published in 2014 66 showed a mere five to 10 minutes a day of running reduced the risk of heart disease and early deaths from all 67 (cause).
The best exercise is one that you enjoy and will do. But otherwise … it’s probably running. To avoid knee pain, you can run on soft surfaces, do exercises to 68 (strength) your leg muscles (肌肉), avoid hills and get good running shoes. Running is cheap, easy and it’s always 69 (energy). If you are time poor, you need run for only half the time to get the same benefits as other sports, so perhaps we should all give 70 a try.

During my last winter holiday, I went to countryside with my father to visit
my grandparents. I find a big change there. The first time I went there, they were
living in a small house with dogs, ducks, and another animals. Last winter when
I went here again, they had a big separate house to raise dozens of chicken. They
also had a small pond which they raised fish. My grandpa said last summer
they earned quite a lot by sell the fish. I felt happily that their life had improved. At the
end of our trip, I told my father that I planned to return for every two years, but he agreed. and

How are you doing? Learning that you are about to pay a visit to a Chinese friend and confused about the Chinese customs, I am writing to put forward some advice.
To begin with, I would like to suggest that you arrive 5 to 10 minutes earlier, which is common in Chinese traditional culture. In addition, if I were you, I would bring some appropriate gifts with me, such as souvenirs from my own country. Besides, table manners are also what you should pay attention to. For example, you are not supposed to stick your chopsticks into your food. Instead, laying them on your dish is a smart choice.
If you have any other problems, please don’t hesitate to contact me. May you have a wonderful day with your friend.
