M: No. I don't think so. I really wish there would be no in-class presentations. It's really unfair for people like us.
W: Why do you think it's unfair for you?
M: I mean some people are really good at speaking in public. For such people giving an in-class presentation is just a piece of cake. But for people like me, it's just too hard. And I don't think such presentations are helpful.

A.Parks' survival. B.Workers' job chances. C.The frequency of cleaning rides.
【3】What does the speaker mainly talk about?
A.Food safety. B.Consideration for reopening. C.Florida's theme parks' loss.
Florida's theme parks are among the biggest economic engines in the state. But the parks have closed because of the coronavirus crisis. Theme park operators are now weighing the issue of public safety and business interests as they try to decide when to reopen. Under normal conditions, theme parks are not just fun rides,but hotels, restaurants, stores and television and film production centers. All these activities and businesses have different requirements to operate safely in order not to contain the virus. For example, long lines form as people wait around to get on theme park rides. This makes people free of getting infected. However, questions such as how often rides will be cleaned remain. The closure of central Florida's theme parks has temporarily left tens of thousands of workers without a job. Although losing over $ 85 million a month, the company said it can find enough money to survive until the end of 2021 under current conditions.
Equipped with an electronic chessboard,cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vaguer played in zero gravity against 30-year-old Russian former child prodigy(神童)Sergei Karyakin. The game was broadcast live and ended in a draw after about 15 minutes.
It was organised by the space agency Roscosmos and the Russian Chess Federation to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Space-Earth game of chess played on June 9, 1970. "It's a huge honor for us not to lose to a grandmaster," Ivanishin said, while Vaguer added that US astronauts on the ISS watched the game and gave tips.
Karyakin, who played from Moscow's Museum of Cosmonautics, said he was jittery during the game and could not fall asleep until 4 a. m. on the night before the match.
"They played well," he said. "I can say that the human brain functions very well in space, and I have seen this today." At the age of 12 years and seven months, Karyakin became the world's youngest ever grandmaster.
Ivanishin, Vagner and US astronaut Chris Cassidy arrived on the ISS in April. On May 31, they were joined by US astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on the first manned private (light to the ISS. SpaceX made history by becoming the world's first commercial company to send humans to the ISS, leading Russia to lose its long-held monopoly(垄断)on space travel.
【1】Why did the two Russian astronauts play chess on the ISS?
A.To offer a live show from the ISS.
B.To prove their success in boarding the ISS.
C.To test the human brain functions in zero gravity.
D.To celebrate the first Space-Earth chess game 50 years ago.
【2】What does the underlined word "jittery" mean in the fourth paragraph?
A.Bored. B.Disappointed. C.Anxious. D.Frightened.
【3】What is the best title of the passage?
A.A Space-Earth Chess Game B.A Former Child Chess Prodigy
C.A Chess Game Played on the ISS D.A Celebration of Human Space History
细节理解题。根据第一段Two Russian cosmonauts(宇航员)aboard the International Space Station (ISS) played chess against an Earth-bound grandmaster on Tuesday, in celebration of the first such game half a century ago.(为了庆祝半个世纪前的首次这种形式的国际象棋比赛，国际空间站上的两名俄罗斯宇航员与地球上的一位象棋大师下了一盘国际象棋)和第三段第一句It was organised by the space agency Roscosmos and the Russian Chess Federation to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Space-Earth game of chess played on June 9, 1970.( 它是由俄罗斯航天局和俄罗斯国际象棋联合会组织的，目的是庆祝1970年6月9日第一场太空—地球国际象棋比赛的50周年)由此可知，两名俄罗斯宇航员在国际空间站上下棋，是为了庆祝50年前的第一场太空地球棋局。故选D。
词义猜测题。根据划线词后文and could not fall asleep until 4 a. m. on the night before the match.可知，Karyakin在比赛前凌晨4点才入睡，这说明他非常紧张。故划线词jittery意为“紧张不安的”。A. Bored.无聊的；B. Disappointed.失望的；C. Anxious.紧张的；D. Frightened.害怕的。故选C。
主旨大意题。通读全文，特别是根据第一段Two Russian cosmonauts(宇航员)aboard the International Space Station (ISS) played chess against an Earth-bound grandmaster on Tuesday, in celebration of the first such game half a century ago.可知为了庆祝半个世纪前的首次国际象棋比赛，国际空间站上的两名俄罗斯宇航员与地球上的一位象棋大师下了一盘国际象棋。结合文章主要介绍了两位身处国际空间站的俄罗斯字航员与在地面上的俄罗斯国际象棋大师进行的一场象棋比赛。该场比赛是为了纪念50年前首次在太空和地球之间进行的象棋比赛。故A选项“一场太空——地球棋局”最符合文章标题。故选A。
The meat industry is pointing out the differences between fake meat and real meat. First, they want the states or the federal government not to allow the words "meat" or "beef" to be on the fake burger labels. Second, they want the meatless products removed from the meat shelves. Third, they want the word "imitation" placed on all fake meat products. The plant-based burger industry has a few points it wants to make. The biggest is that raising cattle is a huge burden on the planet. Their meatless burgers have required less land and water. They create fewer greenhouse emissions than meat burgers from cattle.
But what are the real issues for consumers? First, how do the meatless burgers taste? That is up to the eater. One study says that 90 percent of the customers buying the meatless burgers also eat meat. These customers think the products are good for their health. And they believe the meatless burgers are better for the environment. Observers say it is the millennials who are driving the meatless demand. Millennials are people born between 1980 and 2000.
A taste test of the meatless burgers said they tasted very well. That is, they tasted like meat hamburgers. Thus, the new products have a future.
Another issue promises to be the big one for the future. To look and taste like meat hamburgers, they need a lot of doctoring. Are the meatless burgers better for your health? The answer is not yet in. The high amount of sodium(钠)in the meatless burgers is a factor. An expert said there are fewer health benefits if eaters eat the burgers with ketchup or mustard.
【1】Why are the hamburgers called “fake meat” hamburgers?
A.They are "real meat" hamburgers' challengers. B.They are made from plants.
C.There is no ham or meat in them. D.There is "processed" meat in them.
【2】What can we learn from the second paragraph?
A.The government doesn't allow "meat" to he on the fake burger labels.
B.The meatless products will be removed from the meat shelves.
C.The meatless burger industry may be more environmental-friendly.
D.The meat burger industry raises far more cattle than the meatless one.
【3】What is the writer's attitude towards the "fake meat" hamburgers?
A.Objective. B.Supportive. C.Opposed. D.Doubtful.
细节理解题。根据第一段第三句The new "fake" challengers have no ham or meat in them.可知新的“假”汉堡里没有火腿或肉。由此可知，这些汉堡被称为“假肉”汉堡，是因为里面没有火腿或肉。故选C。
推理判断题。根据第二段中The biggest is that raising cattle is a huge burden on the planet. Their meatless burgers have required less land and water. They create fewer greenhouse emissions than meat burgers from cattle.可知最大的问题是，养牛对地球来说是一个巨大的负担。他们的无肉汉堡需要更少的土地和水。它们产生的温室气体比用牛做的肉饼要少。由此可推知，无肉汉堡产业可能更环保。故选C。
About one out of four people on the planet are facing a shortage of water. Seventeen countries around the world are dealing with high-water stress. This means they are using almost all the water they have access to. Many are dry countries. Some waste much of their water. Some may currently use too much of their groundwater that they should be saving. Several big cities face acute shortages. These include Sao Paulo, Brazil; Chennai, India; and Cape Town, South Africa. A year ago, Cape Town faced nay Zero-the day when all its dams would he dry.
Climate change adds to the risk of water shortages. Rainfall is less steady. The water supply becomes less reliable. The days grow hotter. More water evaporates(蒸发)from lakes and rivers even as demand for water increases. By 2030, the number of cities in the high-stress category may have risen to 45 and include almost 470 million people.
All over the world, farmers compete with city residents for water. Rich urban places, such as Los Angeles, use too much water for pools and golf courses. But the worst problem is the growth of cities. Bangalore, India, for example, had a few years with little rain. It built over its many lakes or filled them with city waste. The lakes are no longer the rain water storage tanks they once were. Bangalore now imports water. A lot of the imported water, however, gets lost on the way to Bangalore.
To address this issue, what can be done? First, cities can plug leaks in their water distribution system. Wastewater can be recycled. Rain can be harvested and saved for hard times. Lakes and wetlands can be cleaned up and old wells can be restored. And farmers can switch from water-intensive crops like rice to less-thirsty crops like millet(小米).
Experts are looking at ways to reduce the number of people on the planet. They are looking at ways to reduce the size of cities. They are looking for ways to encourage people, factories and farmers to use less water.
【1】What can we know from Paragraph 2?
A.A quarter of the world's population is living with water shortages.
B.Nearly all countries are facing acute water shortages now.
C.Underground water should he used to meet the water demand.
D.Measures have been taken to deal with the water shortage in India.
【2】What is the main idea of the third paragraph?
A.Rainfall is not as steady as before. B.Climate change may lead to water shortages.
C.The water supply relies more on rainfall. D.Hotter weather changes the water demand.
【3】What can farmers do to deal with water shortage?
A.Plug leaks in the water distribution system. B.Clean up lakes and wetlands and restore wells.
C.Reduce the number of people in the cities. D.Grow less-water consumption crops instead.
【4】What will be discussed if the passage continues?
A.How to prevent from climate change. B.How to inspire people to save water.
C.How to recycle wastewater in cities. D.How to make people get access to clean water.
细节理解题。根据第二段第一句About one out of four people on the planet are facing a shortage of water.可知，世界，上四分之一的人生活在水资源短缺的环境中。由此可知，世界上四分之一的人口生活在水资源短缺之中。故选A。
段落大意题。根据第三段Climate change adds to the risk of water shortages. Rainfall is less steady. The water supply becomes less reliable. The days grow hotter. More water evaporates(蒸发)from lakes and rivers even as demand for water increases. By 2030, the number of cities in the high-stress category may have risen to 45 and include almost 470 million people.可知气候变化增加了水资源短缺的风险。降雨量也不稳定。供水变得不那么可靠了。天气越来越热。更多的水从湖泊和河流蒸发，即使对水的需求增加。到2030年，处于高压力状态的城市数量可能会上升到45个，包括近4.7亿人口。由此可知，第三段主要内容是气候变化使得水资源短缺问题更加严重。故选B。
细节理解题。根据第五段最后一句And farmers can switch from water-intensive crops like rice to less-thirsty crops like millet(小米).可知，农民可以通过种植需水量较少的作物，来代替需水量大的作物，以应对水资源短缺问题。由此可知，农民们能通过种植耗水量少的作物，来解决水资源短缺的问题。故选D。
推理判断题。根据最后一段最后一句They are looking for ways to encourage people, factories and farmers to use less water.可知他们正在寻找鼓励人们、工厂和农民减少用水的方法。由此可推知，文章接下来会讨论如何鼓励人们节约水资源。故选B。
【2】It is common for runners to push themselves about the same amount each time, running similarly challenging runs and gradually increasing difficulty. Outstanding runners, however, alternate(交替)an easy, resting run with a very challenging one. It is during these difficult runs，when you really push yourself, that your body snakes the most significant gains.【3】Rather, it is helping rebuild and relax the muscles needed for your big runs.
Keep a relaxed but strong upper body to conserve energy efficiently. You want to keep your chin(下巴)up and your shoulders back, with loose, relaxed arm and hand muscles. Your elbows are bent at 90 degrees but swing freely. If anything, the only muscles you want to focus on keeping strong and tight are the ones in your core(核心).【4】
Use your light run to work up a light sweat. A higher body temperature ensures your muscles are loose and flexible, and your body is pumping blood effectively throughout. For everything other than easy runs, use the first five to ten minutes to build a light sweat and get your body ready for exercise.【5】Slowly pick up speed for short 10 second runs, then return to normal warm-up pace. This helps prepare your muscles for speed.
A.Don't feel like an easy day is "cheating".
B.Alternate easy and hard runs to build strength rapidly.
C.Even five minutes of walking is a good way to get started.
D."Warming up" truly means you want to warm up your body.
E.You are to pay a little attention to details and a smart training plan.
F.That's because this will naturally help you efficiently channel energy.
G.Remember to relax your face and neck muscles instead of tensing them
下文In that case, you can make large improvements as a runner in a relatively short time, no matter what your sport, race, or running habits.(这种情况下，无论你从事什么样的运动、比赛，或有什么样的跑步习惯，你都可以在相对较短的时间内取得巨大的进步。)与E. You are to pay a little attention to details and a smart training plan.(你需要注意一些细节并(制定)一个巧妙的训练计划)承接自然，下文的“这种情况”就是选项所提到的“制定细节和训练计划”，故选E项。
根据下文的It is common for runners to push themselves about the same amount each time, running similarly challenging runs and gradually increasing difficulty. Outstanding runners, however, alternate(交替)an easy, resting run with a very challenging one. (在跑步时逐渐增加难度、对自己提出挑战、施加压力是很常见的。然而，杰出的跑步者会交替进行一种简单、休息式的跑步和一种非常有挑战性的跑步。)可知，本段主要讲述跑步时要进行轻松和艰难模式的交替，且快速积累能量。因此B. Alternate easy and hard runs to build strength rapidly.(要交替进行轻松和艰难的跑步，快速积聚力量。)可以作为本段中心句，故选B项。
下文Rather, it is helping rebuild and relax the muscles needed for your big runs.(它帮助你为进行大量运动重塑并放松你的肌肉。)与A. Don't feel like an easy day is "cheating".(不要觉得轻松的一天就是在‘作弊’。)承接自然，“轻松”的一天对你有巨大帮助，下文的it就指代选项中的an easy day，故选A项。
上文Your elbows are bent at 90 degrees but swing freely. If anything, the only muscles you want to focus on keeping strong and tight are the ones in your core(核心).(将你的手肘弯曲成90度，自然摆动。集中注意保持你的核心肌肉处于紧绷的状态。)与F. That's because this will naturally help you efficiently channel energy. (因为这样会自然地帮助你有效地输送能量。)承接自然，选项是将手肘弯曲成90度的作用，故选F项。
上文For everything other than easy runs, use the first five to ten minutes to build a light sweat and get your body ready for exercise.(除了简单的跑步外，先用5到10分钟来做一些(能让你)轻微出汗的运动从而让你的身体准备好去运动。)与C. Even five minutes of walking is a good way to get started.(即使步行五分钟也是一个很好的开始方式)承接自然，five minutes是关键词，故选C项。

考查动词时态和主谓一致。根据上文Since lockdown began可知，remain表示动作开始于过去且对现在有影响，应用现在完成时；且主语为“the Environment Agency”，助动词应用has。故填has remained。
考查非谓语动词。句意：自隔离开始以来，环境署一直在全力运作。大部分工作人员在家工作，而一线工作人员仍在现场积极应对洪水风险和污染等问题。此处为“with+名词+现在分词”的独立主格结构，the majority of staff与work为主动关系，故应用现在分词。故填working。
考查固定搭配。句意：工作人员一直在充分利用技术来继续工作——比如远程法律听证会，使用无人机监控受监管的站点，并研究未来如何实施这些做法来提高效率和改善效果。固定搭配make the best use of意为“充分利用”。故填best。
考查形容词。句意同时。根据本句中的“be more efficient and”可知，此处应用形容词effective，作表语，与efficient 并列。故填effective。
考查动词时态语态和主谓一致。句意：上个月，一项重要的海岸防洪计划完成了，这将保护West Sussex的300多处房产。分析句子结构可知，谓语动词complete与主语plan构成被动关系，此处应用被动语态；根据时间状语Last month可知，应用一般过去时的被动语态；且主语为plan，故谓语动词应用第三人称单数形式。故填was completed。

I was a single mother in my 20s who lived clown and out with my daughter Peggy in a small apartment, struggling hard to make our needs meet.
One day, I headed to the downtown for an interview. I sat clown in the streetcar, and there against the seat was a beautiful silk umbrella with a silver handle decorated with gold scrolls, among which there was a name carved.
On impulse(冲动)I determined to find the owner myself. I got off the streetcar in the heavy rain and thankfully opened the umbrella to protect myself. Then I searched a telephone hook for the name. I found it immediately and called it, waiting patiently, and then a lady answered.
"Yes," she said in surprise, with extreme excitement. "Ii was my umbrella which had been stolen a year ago."
So appealing was her pleasure that I forgot I was looking for a job and went directly to her small house. She took the umbrella, with teary eyes, explaining with choked voice that the umbrella was given by her parents, now dead. Her happiness at retrieving(找回)this special possession was such that to have accepted her reward would have spoiled something, so I refused her offer and left.
The following months were hard. I can only obtain temporary employment, for a small salary. What was worse, I had just lost my last job before Christmas, with only fifteen dollars left. Unless a miracle happened, I would be homeless in January, foodless and jobless. I had prayed steadily for weeks, and there had been no answer but this coldness and darkness.
The air was full of Christmas merriment, with the bells ringing and children shouting in the bitter dusk of the evening. But there should be no Christmas for me, I knew, no gifts, no remembrance whatsoever.
Thinking of this, I couldn't control my tears on my way front the streetcar to home, but I managed a smile so I could greet my little daughter. She opened the door for me and threw herself in my arms, screaming joyously and demanding desirably for her Christmas gift. There I stood, frozen, overwhelmed by misery.
Suddenly, the doorbell rang and Peggy rushed to answer it, calling that it must be Santa Claus.
Suddenly, a note attached to one package caught my eyes.
【答案】One possible version
Suddenly, the doorbell rang and Peggy rushed to answer it, calling that it must be Santa Claus. Then I heard a man talking heartily to her and went to the door. He was a delivery man, and his arms were full of parcels. “This is a mistake,” I said, but he read the name on the parcels and they were for me. When he had gone, I didn't know what to do. Later, Peggy and I sat on the floor, looking at each other. What a surprise! I looked for the name of the sender.
Suddenly, a note attached to one package caught my eyes. I picked up the note, which read “Thanks for your returning of the umbrella. Merry Christmas!” It was sent by the lady. Holding the note tightly, I was on the verge of tears, with a stream of warmth spreading through my body. On that cold Christmas, I forgot I had no money for the rent and only fifteen dollars in my pocket. We just sat in our small apartment unwrapping the gifts one by one in happiness. A sweet peace flooded me like a benediction, which made me hopeful again.
