Part II Reading Comprehension
A 3-year-old boy who was lost in the woods for two days is now safe at home.But Casey Hathaway told his rescuers that he was not along in the rainy,freezing cold woods.He said he was with a friend—a bear.
The child went missing on January 22 while playing with friends at his grandmother’s house in the southern state of North Carolina.When the other children returned to the house and Casey did not,the family searched the area for almost an hour before calling the police.
Police formed a search and rescue team to look for the young boy in the nearby woods.But two days went by and still—no Casey.The woods of North Carolina are home to many black bears,like this one.It seems one of them helped a little boy while he was lost in the woods.Then on January 24,someone called the police saying they heard a child crying in the woods.
Police followed up on the information and found Casey at about 9:30 that night.They pulled him out of some briar(荆棘).He was in good health.Police Officer Chip Hughes said that Casey did not say how he was able to survive in the woods for two days in the could,rainy weather,but that “he did say he had a friend in the woods that was a bear that was with him.”
Hundreds of people helped in the search and rescue efforts,including some 600 volunteers,federal police and members of the military.Hughes told reporters that at no point did he think Casey had been kidnapped(绑架).
Doctors at Carolina East Medical Center treated Casey for minor injuries.He was then released to his family on January 25.
16.According to the passage,Casey’s missing is a case of ( ).
17. The woods are mentioned again and again to indicate that they ( ).
A.provide good places for children to play in
B.are home to bears and thus dangerous to children
C.stand for good environment around Casey’s home
D.may be the cause of the rainy weather in the area
18.After receiving the call,the police ( ).
B.found Casey immediately
C.made a quick response
D.did not know what to do
19.When found in the woods,Casey was ( ).
A. playing with a bear
B.badly injured by a bear

The ideas about healthy eating have not changed much from your great-grandmother’s time.Eat a variety of foods,don’t gain weight and avoid too much salt and sugar.But scientists keep changing their advice.In a 2012 U.S. poll,half of the respondents(受访者) said it was easier to do taxes than to figure out what is healthy to eat.Why isn’t it simpler?
For one thing,nutrition or food science is really new research.It is not yet reliable.And,there’s lots of money to be made in the food business.So companies will say their food is healthy even if it isn’t.
In 2011,the U.S. government put out dietary guidelines about cholesterol(胆固醇) and total fat.The panel of scientists wrote that a healthy diet is “lower in red and processed meat” because these meats lead to higher death rates from cancer and heart disease.After strong objections from the meat industry,that caution was dropped in 2016.
The 2016 U.S. nutrition guidelines have 204 pages.They are very complicated,making many believe that they have,at times,contributed to worsening health.For instance,warnings that the fat in butter and cream produced heart attacks made people switch to nondairy creamer.But these contain the trans fats that scientists now think are more harmful.
Furthermore,warnings to avoid fat altogether led Americans to eat significantly more carbohydrates(碳水化合物).The carbohydrates in “fat-free” diets increase sugar in the blood,leading to more weight gain.
Some nutritionists think the guidelines should be easier to understand,which would put them more in line with the eating advice given by the World Health Organization (WHO).
21.According to the first paragraph，as to what is healthy to eat,people ( ).
A.prefer traditional food
B.are somewhat confused
C.trust the advice of scientists
D.keep changing their choices
22.The example of the meat industry implies that ( ).
A.food science is not reliable
B.food business has strong power
C.nutrition scientists are wrong
D.food preference is changing
23.What do we know about nondairy creamer( )?
A.It contains harmful trans fat.
B.It increases sugar in the blood.
C.It raises the cholesterol level.
D.It leads to more weight gain.
24.Some nutritionists think that compared with the WHO advice,the U.S. guidelines ( ).
B.make no sense
C.seem too complicated
D.do more harm than good
25.What seems to be the author’s attitude towards the U.S. nutrition guidelines in 2016( )?
As the national attention to fake news and the debate over what to do about it continue,one place where many are looking for solutions is in the classroom.
In Scott Bedley’s version of Simon Says,what keep you in the game is to decide correctly whether a news story is real or not.To start off the game,Bedley sends his fifth-graders at Plaza Vista School in Irvine,California,an article to read on their laptops.He gives them about three minutes to make their decision—they have to read the story carefully,examine its source and use their judgment.Those who think the article is false stand up.The “true” believers stay in their seats.
Bedley says he’s been trying to teach his students for a while to look carefully at what they’re reading and where it comes from.He’s got a seven-point checklist his students can follow.
Bedley also teamed up recently with Todd Flory at Calamus Wheatland Elementary School in Calamus,Iowa,to do a fake news challenge via Skype.Flory’s fourth-graders chose two real article and wrote a fake article of their own.Then,they presented them to Bedley’s class in California.
The fifth-graders decided which article out of the three was fake.Most importantly,they had to explain why they thought it was fake.Otherwise,no points.
Flory says writing the fake news article was more difficult for his students than they expected because they had to make it believable.“It really hammered home the idea to them that fake news doesn’t have to be too eye-catching,”he says.“It can be a very subtle(微妙的) change,but that subtle change can have big consequences.”
26.What is probably Bedley’s version of Simon Says( )?
A.new course to learn about Simon’s news strategy.
B.A lecture to follow Simon’s discussion of fake news.
C.A classroom game to help students identify fake news.

A.are encouraged to have a group discussion
B.learn the tips for writing a good story
C.need to explain whether they like the news or not
D.make decisions the way Bedley has taught them
28.What can be learned about Flory’s fourth-graders( )?
A.They wrote articles to test the fifth graders’ judgment.
B.They teamed up with the fifth graders to write articles.
C.They had a writing competition with the fifth-graders.
D.They presented their articles for the fifth-graders to correct.
29.The most important task for the fifth-graders was to ( ).

For a long time,people have disagreed about whether golf is a sport or a game.
On one side of the argument,people say that golf meets the dictionary definition of a sport,because it is a physical,athletic activity.They add that golf is recognized as a sport by sporting goods companies,athletic groups,fans,and the media.Also,golf’s inclusion in the Olympics in 2016 is more proof that it is sport.
On the other side,people say that golf is a game,not a sport.They say golf is not a very physical activity and can be played well by people who are overweight or injured.Also,golf was only recently added to the Olympics.For more than 100 years it was not included in the Olympic Games.
For many,the Olympic Games serve as a measurement for whether an activity should be called a sport.Golf was first included in the Olympics in 1900.However,it was removed shortly thereafter because of a lack of participation and confict with other golf events.Through the years,there were several attempts to bring golf back to the Olympics.It wasn’t until the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro,Brazil that golf returned.
Some say the return of golf does not prove that it is a sport.Rather,it only proves that the Olympics wanted to benefit from the star power of famous golfers like Tiger Woods.
The disagreement continues today.Those who think golf is a sport point to pro-golfers like Woods,who are strong and fit.Those who disagree point to golfers like John Daly.He is a successful pro-golfer who once had health problems.So is golf a sport?The answer depends on who you ask—and whether that person owns a set of golf clubs.
