Years ago, I volunteered at a homeless shelter in Los Angeles, handing out food. Once I got talking with Albert., a tall and skinny young guy in line. He said he liked my socks. “Want to see mine?” he joked, lifting his leg. He was barefoot. I felt a sinking feeling in my stomach.
The next day, after work, I stopped at Ross and filled up my truck with socks. The following early morning, I drove over to Santa Monica's Palisades Park, which is a common destination for homeless people.
I took one of the bags from my trunk. It was still dark out. I headed for a group of three men, standing around a tree, probably using it as a windbreaker. Two were asleep under heavy blankets, and the third was digging through his collection. As I walked toward him, he watched me, perhaps questioning my motives. “I thought you guys might need some fresh new socks,” I said, handing him a pair. He looked confused at first but took them and said, “Thank you.” I gave him two more pairs for his friends.
I moved on. An hour later, I had given out all the socks. Most people were sleeping, and I felt like Santa. I knew that when they wake up they would find a very meaningful present.
That was nine years ago. Every week I’ll hand out as many socks as I can. If I’m on vacation or on a business trip for more than a week, I bring a bag of socks with me and hand them out to the homeless on the streets in other states and countries.
It’s extremely satisfying to operate “under the radar（雷达）” to help make some people’s lives a little bit easier. Part of me hopes to see Albert out there one of these days, but even if I don’t, I like to think one of the pairs will find him.

D. Helping the Homeless in an Unexpected Way.
British children’s writer Roald Dahl ate chocolates and sweets “pretty much every mealtime”, remembers daughter Ophelia Dahl.
After dinner, whether dining alone or entertaining guests, Dahl would pass around a little red plastic box full of Mars Bars, Milky Ways, Maltesers, Kit Kats and much more.
He knew the history of all the sweets and could tell you exactly when they were invented. 1937 was a big year when Kit Kats (his favorite), Rolos, and Smarties (his dog, chopper’s favorite) were invented. He wrote a history of chocolate, lecturing schoolchildren to commit such dates to memory, such as 1928 when “Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut Bar popped up on the scene”, saying. “Don’t bother with the Kings and Queens of England. All of you should learn these dates instead. Perhaps the Headmistress will see from now on that it becomes part of the major teaching in this school.”
According to Dahl, the Golden Years of Chocolate were 1930-1937. In 1930, Roald Dahl was 14 years old. He was a student at Repton, a famous boys’ boarding school in England. It was a tough environment: Those in authority were more interested in controlling than educating the students.
Ironically, it was at this difficult period that chocolate became Dahl’s passion. Near Repton was a Cadbury chocolate factory. Every so often, Cadbury would send each schoolboy a sampler box of new chocolates to taste and grade. They were using the students—“the greatest chocolate bar experts in the world” to test out their new inventions.
This was when Dahl’s imagination took flight. He pictured factories with inventing rooms with pots of chocolate and fudge(软糖) and “all sorts of other delicious fillings bubbling away on the stoves”.
“It was lovely dreaming those dreams… when I was looking for a plot for my second book for children, I remembered those little cardboard boxes and the newly-invented chocolates inside them, and I began to write a book called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”
For the record, Roald Dahl did not like chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream. He said, “I prefer my chocolate straight.”
28. What is the purpose of the first paragraph?
A. To introduce the main topic—Roald Dahl. B. To introduce Dahl’s love for chocolates.
C. To introduce main character’s daily life. D. To introduce some important characters.
29. What can we infer from the passage about Roald Dahl?
A. He treated himself with various chocolates after dinner secretly.
B. He has a good knowledge of chocolate, especially its history.
C. He used to lecture schoolchildren of a boys’ boarding school.
D. He only wrote some books related to the history of chocolate.
30. What happened during the Golden Years of Chocolate?
A. It was a great time for children to get educated.
B. Those years stopped Dahl’s interest in chocolate.
C. Students could become chocolate experts then.
D. Roald Dahl’s passion for chocolate was lit up then.
31. __________ gave Roald Dahl inspiration to write Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
A. The dreams about chocolates B. Factories with chocolate and fudge
C. Those boxes with chocolates D. Chocolate cakes and ice cream
According to a study published recently in the Journal Science, scientists have found a way to hack the plant's genes to help make it use sunlight more quickly, which could increase the amount of food produced around the world one day.
Plants use sunlight, water and carbon dioxide lo make their own food. Scientists find plants use less than 1% of the energy available to them. But by hacking a plant’s genes, scientists are able to increase the amount of leaf growth on plants between 14% and 20%.
Specifically, scientists hacked the plant's protective system. Normally, this system is activated (激活) when a plant gets too much sunlight, said scientist Krishna Niyogi. When the plant senses the light, it gets rid of extra energy and creates more leaves. When the plant is in shade, the protective system is turned off.
Stephen Long is the lead author of the study. He compared a plants protective system to light-adjusting glasses. When we wear the glasses outside during the day, lenses(镜头)darken or lighten depending on how sunny it is. Plants do the same thing. But in plans the adjustment can take anywhere from 10 minutes lo an hour. This makes it hard for plants to get the right amount of sunlight needed to create food.
The new study speeds up the process. By changing the plant's genes, the protective system turned on and off more quickly than normal. As a result, leaf growth in reo plants increased by 20%, while leaf growth on a third plant increased by 14%.
32. The closest meaning of the underlined word in Paragraph 2 is______.
A. designing B. changing C. covering D. feeding
33. What will happen to a plant when exposed to too much sunlight?
A. Slowing down its leaves growth. B. Folding up its leaves.
C. Turning on its protective system. D. Stopping taking in energy.
34. How does plant's protective system work according to Long?
A. By timing the exposure to daylight. B. By adjusting sunlight plants receive.
C. By being positioned under proper shades. D. By switching between strong and weak lights.
35. What seems to be Stephen Long's attitude towards the study
A. Cautious. B. Negative. C. Uncertain. D. Optimistic.
the development of technology and economy, social media is becoming one of the fastest-growing industries in today’s world. A study conducted by the US Pew Research Center showed that 92 percent of teenagers go online daily. 36
High school student Elly Cooper from Illinois said social media often reduces face-to-face communication. “It makes face-to-face relationships harder because of people s attention given to their phones instead of their friends,” Cooper said.
