Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.
You can improve your child’s hearing memory considerably.Once his hearing memory has been greatly improved,he'll be able to use and remember what he listens to in class.The success of these suggestions depends upon your ability to use your child’s natural desire to get involved in games he finds simple and fun.

Next, reread the sentence, leaving out a particular word. See if your child can identify the word you left out. At the beginning use only simple sentences. Gradually, increase the length of the sentences. Make sure you don’t rush things along too quickly, or your child may become discouraged and tired of the game.

Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage.
In the United States, it is important to be on time, or punctual, for an appointment, a class, a meeting, etc. However, this may not be true in all countries .An American professor discovered this difference while teaching a class in a Brazilian(巴西的)university. The two-hour class was scheduled to begin at 10 A.M. and end at 12.On the first day, when the professor arrived on time, no one was in the classroom. Many students came after 10 A.M.S several arrived after 10∶30 A.M. Two students came after 11 A.M. Although all the students greeted the professor as they arrived, few apologized(道歉)for their lateness. Were these students being rude? He decided to study the students’ behavior.
The professor talked to American and Brazilian students about lateness in both an informal and a formal situation: at a lunch with a friend and in a university calls, respectively. He gave them an example and asked them how they would react. If they had a lunch appointment with a friend, the average American student defined lateness as 19 minutes after the agreed time. On the other hand, the average Brazilian student felt the friend was late after 33 minutes.
In an American university, students are expected to arrive at the appointed hour. In contrast, in Brazil, neither the teacher nor the students always arrive at the appointed hour. Classes not only begin at the scheduled time in the United States, but also end at the scheduled time. In the Brazilian class, only a few students left the class at 12∶00; many remained past 12∶30 to discuss the class and ask more questions. While arriving late may not be very important in Brazil, neither is staying late.
26.The word ‘punctual’ most probably means ___.
A.leaving soon after class
C.arriving a few minutes late

B.He felt angry at the students' rudeness.

28.It can be inferred from the professor’s study of lateness in the informal situation that ____,
A.American students will become impatient if their friend is five minutes late
B.neither Brazilian nor American students like being late in social gatherings
C.being late in one culture may not be considered so in another culture
D.Brazilian students will not come thirty-three minutes after the agreed time

30.What is the main idea of this passage?

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.
Conflict, like stress, is a natural phenomenon when people interact. Conflict in some form is always present; however, It is not always negative. Conflict can be positive, for example, when you and your colleagues try to select the best possible alternative to a problem. However, much more attention is given to the negative aspects of conflict.
Conflict occurs when we fear the unknown. This can be very simple: someone says something in a tone of voice different from our expectations, which raises questions in our mind as to what the real meaning might be. Of course conflict can, and does, occur in much more serious circumstances.
Your ability to detect and understand conflict will place you in a better position to control the situation. Conflict is often categorized in three stages. Stage one is the day-to-day irritations(恼人的事)that require minimal coping strategies. Stage one conflict is real but low in intensity. The intensity can increase if irritations increase and no solution is found.
Stage two is reached when the parties become competitive. Each person protects his self-interest and fears loss of face. The win-lose attitude becomes integrated with the problem.
Stage three is reached when the objective changes from wanting to win toward wanting to hurt the other party. This stage can be explosive because other people are drawn into the conflict and sides are chosen. Problem solving is no longer a realistic method of resolution.
By understanding the three stages of conflict, it will be easier for you to handle the day-to-day situations to which you are exposed. You will also be able to detect potential conflict between others in which you do not want to get involved.

Many people feel the health of American children is in trouble. In fact, 40% of children aged 5 to 8 may be unhealthy already. For example, many are overweight and have high blood pressure. Doctors believe that these conditions are the result of physical inactivity.
In many countries in the world, all school children have to do one hour of exercise every day. These exercises may be simple, such as running or jumping. Doctors believe that habits learned early are more likely to stay with us through life. School is the perfect place to learn these habits. Active, healthy children who exercise regularly can become active, healthy adults.
