Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage:
American students had been leamning from home for more than a year during the pandemic(全球疫情) .When they retumned to in-person leaming, teachers began to see more bchavioral problems.
Sarah Potpinka is an art teacher. She said, "Coming back into the building a lot of kids fell out of the good habits they had built up in previous years." She saw more fights and arguments among students. Some refused to wear the required face coverings. Other students broke school rules by leaving in the middle of class to meet up with friends.
"Obviously throughout this pandemic, the students spent a lot of time at home and because of that they lack in those social skills," said Danielle Trejo. She is a school counsclor (FAM )in Austin,Texas.
Bad behavior among students is part of what experts are calling a mental health crisis among children. Childhood depression is also a serious problem. A group of mental health organizations says that one in three students reported feeling lonely or hopcless. Half of all mental ilness appears by the age of 14 but few students get the services they need.
Richard Douglas is a school psychologist at Putnam High School with over 30 years of experience. He feels school officials provide enough support to deal with the crisis at Putnam. For the school of around just 250 students, there is also a counselor, social worker, and two recently hired interventionists. Interventionists help identifiy learning and bchavioral problems among students.
But many school systems around the U.S. say they need more psychologists and counselors.The Hopeful Futures Campaign report says most American states do not provide enough resources for mental health support in schools.

Questions 11 to 15 are based on the fllowing passage:
Buying an clctric car (电动车) instcad of a gasoline-powered car (燃油车) is a good way to fight climate change, but what if you already have a gasoline-powered car that's working actually fine? Should you sell it and go elecric? Whart's the best way to reduce your carbon emission (排放)if when it comes to gtting where you need to go?
Kenneth Gillingham, a professor of economic at Yale, says that there are multiple factors to consider when it comes to your transportation choices. Producing new cars and transporting them contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, so its important to consider that when you're thinking about this issue-even though research has shown producing an electrie vehicle is less harmful to the environment than producing a gas-powered vehicle. If you have a car that's really fuel fficient, he.its probably finc to just keep it for a whilc.
On the other hand, it is good to help increase demand for electric vehicles. "In this stage of electric vehicle development, it is really beneficial to have demand for electric vehicles to show the automakers there is a market here and they really can shift 90 percent of their research and development dollars toward electric vehicles and people will buy them." Gilffigham says.
Beyond the issue of what kind of car you own or might soon buy, it's also important to consider how you're using your car and if you need a car at all. Driving less reduces air pollution, especially when replaced by walking or biking. And using public transport also helps reduce how much you're contributing to climate change.
But there is a big debate over if using ride services is better or worse for the environment than driving your own car somewhere. All researchers seem to agree that it is worse because drivers spend over 40 percent of their time driving without a passenger while they're in between trips.
11. Which of the fllowing is a good way to help fight climate change?( )
A. Trying to drive an electric car wherever we go.
B. Buying an ectrie car rather than a gasoline-powered car.
C. Selling our gasoline-powered cars even though they are not working very well
D. Keeping our gasoline-powered cars even though they are not working very well.
12. What is an important consideration about transportation choices according to Paragraph 2?
A. Taking public transport is the best choice.
B. Producing and transporting cars can cause gas emissions.
C. Producing a gas-powered vehicle is less harmful than an electric car.
D. Walking or riding a bike contributes less carbon emission than driving a car.
13. Which of the following is the best way to reduce carbon emission when you go ou?
A. To walk or ride a bike.
B. To drive an electrie car.
C. To use public transport
D. To drive a gasoline-powered car.

Questions 16 to 20 are based on the following passage:

Adapting your specch based on your audiences size should be one of the first things for you to do. Large audiences often have litle or no audience participation (参与)，so you need to ensure that your speech is long enough to fill the time required.

Another way in which you'll need to adapt your speech is whether you are talking to other experts in the same field, or to beginners or an audience with limited knowledge about the topic.
The most efective way to do this is to create the version(版本) of your speech that have quite different content. Otherwise, both experts and beginners may lose interest.
No matter how much you prepare and adapt your content, you may find yourself in a situation where you are losing audience engagement during your speech. It's necessary that you
read and act on such signals.

22._____You might only be crossing your arms and legs, say, because you're cold, but that position can also be understood as an unconscious way to defend yourself, so it is not good for building trust. Make sure your body looks open - you'll look more open to hearing others' thoughts.

A man wondered if his wife had a hearing problem. One night he stood bchind her while she sat reading and asked, "Honey, can you hear me?" There was no response, so he moved closer."Honey, can you hear me?" There was still no response , so he moved right bchind her.
"Honey,can you hear me?" "For the third time - yes!"The inability to bear and understand spoken language is one of the most significant sensors issues that afect older adults. Hearing loss may result from perceptual (感知的) problems in the brain itself. Training programs, such as learming to spech read, can help older adults optimize (优化) the hearing they do have.
The joke at the beginning shows an important truth about age-related hearing loss: the person with problem may be the last one to admit it. Many individuals who begin to struggle with hearing loss go through a period of denial; after all, it's casier to tell yourself that other people speak unclearly than it is to confront a significant listening problem. Left untreated, the social isolation created by age-rclated hearing loss can negatively affect an older adul's quality life.
It may come as a surprise to learn that baby boomers(生育高峰出生的人),the first generation exposed to loud music on a regular basis, may actually have better hearing than their parents' generation. This could be due to a decline in smoking rates, lower rates of employment in industrial jobs, and a greater use of hearing protection. However, their own children may not be as fortune, given the tendency of teenagers to listen to music via carphones at high volume.
56. Who had a hearing problem in the joke?
57. What can help older adults optimizc the hearing they have?
58. How do many older adults respond to hearing loss at first?
59. Baby boomers have__ hearing than their parents.
60. Why are baby boomers' children not so fortunate?
