21. Dear Sunday Globe,
I am writing to tell you about your article Smartphones Make Life Easier
in last Sunday’s newspaper. You did an excellent job explaining the good points of smartphones, but you didn’t talk about their bad points at all. So, I hope you’ll let me give your readers some advice on smartphone etiquette (礼仪).
The first point I’d like to address
is loudness. When you talk on your smartphone in public, please don’t shout. In fact, the microphones in smartphones are very sensitive (灵敏的). So, you can be heard even if you speak quiet
Another point is about personal space. I don’t think it is polite to make calls in small spaces full of people. This makes others uncomfortable and forces them to listen to your personal business. What’s worse, it stops many face-to-face conversations from ever beginning.
Lastly, doing two things
at the same time is dangerous. For example, making calls while driving is a bad habit. Pay attention to the road! Similarly, when staying with your friends, turn off your smartphone and enjoy their company.
79. Amber Jala wrote the letter to ________ .
A. find a good job B. provide advice
C. make her life easier D. buy a smartphone
80. What does the underlined word “address
” in Paragraph 2 probably mean?
A. 致函 B. 称呼 C. 陈述 D. 选址
81. According to Paragraph 3, what makes people around you uncomfortable?
A. Discussing face-to-face. B. Speaking quietly on your phone.
C. Minding your own business. D. Calling in small spaces full of people.
82. What can we learn from the last paragraph?
A. It is dangerous to drive on the road.
B. It is easy to start a company with others.
C. It is bad to turn off our phones while driving.
D. It is important to use our smartphones properly.
22. Kaitlin Riffel’s dream to end poverty(贫困) started when she was visiting her father, who worked for the homeless.
“I never realized there were people in the world who didn’t have a home or food before,” said Kaitlin, who is now sixteen. “I knew there was something I had to do about that.”

In 2014, When Kaitlin was thirteen, she visited Central America, and saw people going hungry and families living in houses made of cardboard. That year, we set Kids on a Mission, which has helped hundreds of people there.

There was once an old and deep well. People got water by dropping a bucket(木桶) tied to a rope. The rope passed over a wheel just above the well. On the other side of the rope was another bucket.
A strong pull brought one bucket to the top while the other down to the water. They always passed each other on the way up and down, but never had time to speak.
At last, the rope became worn. So a new rope had to be put in its place. While this was being done, the two buckets were left standing together near the well.
“What a boring life we have!” said one bucket to the other. “I am quite tired of it. No matter how full we come up, we are always sent down empty.”
But the other bucket laughed and said, “What a funny way you have of looking at things! Don’t you see that whenever we are sent down empty, we always come up full?’
Boys and girls sometimes talk like these two buckets. You may hear one of them say, “Just as we are having a good game, we are made to stop and go to work again.” “Yes,” the other will reply, “but as soon as work is over, we always get to go out and have fun again.”
There are two ways of looking at things. If you want to be happy, look at the bright side.
