Two years ago，Dimas Aliprandi and Elton Plaster didn’t know of each other’s existence．Then they learned they had been switched at birth by mistake more than 20 years ago．The discovery didn’t bring bitterness．Rather，it led to the creation of a bigger family.
The chain of events started with Dimas，who was always wondering why he did not look like the four sisters he grew up with．He was 14 when his doubts grew after watching a TV news report on babies getting switched at birth because of mistakes at hospitals．He wanted to do a DNA test，but it was too expensive for the family．
A decade later，Dimas did it on his own．The DNA test showed that he was not the birth son of the man and woman who had raised him．The news was a shock for his parents．They at first refused to believe the results，but eventually decided to help him look for his biological parents．
The search began at the Madre Regina Protmann Hospital where records were checked．The hospital searched its records and found Elton Plaster was born there on the same day．
The records led Dimas to the 35-acre farm where Piaster lived，with his parents，Nilza and Adelson，in the town of Santa Maria de Jetiba，about 30 miles from the Aliprandi home in Joao Neiva．After tests，the Plasters discovered that Elton was the biological son of the man and woman that Dimas had been calling Morn and Dad for 24 years．Meanwhile，the couple Elton，had always regarded as his biological parents were Dimas’parents.
About a year ago，Aliprandi and the parents who raised him accepted an offer from the Plasters to move to their farm，where they built a home．“This is the way it should be，”Adelson Plaster recently told Globo TV．“We are all together and I now have two sons living and working here．”
24．Who was the first to discover the baby switch?
A．Elton Plaster． B．Dimas Aliprandi． C．Globo TV．D．The hospital．
25．Where do the Aliprandis now live?

C．In Madre Regina Protmann． D．In Santa Maria de Jetiba．
26．What did the Aliprandis do when they knew about the baby switch?
A．They took another DNA test．
B．They switched the hospital’s records．
C．They helped Dimas find his birth parents．
D．They went to Globo TV for more information．
27．Who are Elton Plaster’s biological parents?

The concept of a working holiday is fairly simple．It is a vacation which normally lasts for several weeks or even months，during which you divide your time between work and recreation．The typical working holiday includes some manual labor and sightseeing．You can usually get room and board in exchange for a few hours of work．For instance，Australia and New Zealand encourage working holidays by offering one-year visas to people between the ages of 18 and 30．Countries all over the world offer the chances to work or volunteer and live in a new environment．All you need is a return ticket and enough cash to live on．
While some people choose to work in restaurants or hotels，others may do fruit picking which is perhaps the most popular type of work．Be prepared for long working days in the orchard，which may last up to ten hours a day．If you are not ready for this，a more leisurely job with shorter hours is possible，but you will not make as much money．Another option is volunteering in foreign countries．For example，you can work with disabled children in Bolivia and practice your Spanish，research dolphins and whales in Italy，or build schools in rural towns in Ghana．
A working holiday is a great way to broaden your horizons since it gives you the chance to explore a country，practice a new language，and meet people from all over the world．These kinds of adventures sometimes have a really big impact on those who have experienced a working holiday．They often say that it was one of the best memories of their lives．Be aware! Even though some working vacation programs pay，not all of them do sometimes you end up paying to go on working vacation．However，a working holiday can get you off the beaten track and into spots the average tour bus would never go near.
28．What can you get in exchange for a few hours of work?
A．Recreation and money． B．A return ticket．
C．Free transportation． D．Meals and shelter．

C．Great places for a working holiday． D．Volunteering in foreign countries．
30．What does“the beaten track”in the third paragraph refer to?
A．Roads in poor condition． B．Broken railway tracks．
C．Routes taken by many tourists． D．Spots where you might get beaten．
31．What does the writer remind readers to do in the last paragraph?
A．Check what you must pay for． B．Meet proper people．
C．Be prepared for adventures． D．Broaden your horizons．
It is reported that bags are getting bigger all the time，and that there are more bags per person on the street today than at any other time in history．If this is true，possible explanations could include the wide use of small electric and electronic devices，a reading-material explosion，a popular interest toward tight or pocket less clothing，or cheap bagmaking labor overseas．
But，much as nature finds ways—such as disease—to control overpopulation，city life has thrown up impediments(障碍)to bags．To enter many public buildings，such as theatres and railway stations，you must go through a search or go bagless．The city has countless bag rules．It is hard to keep them a11 straight，and you're never sure，when leaving home for the day，whether it might be a bad idea to bring one along．
Last week，the New York Public Library got in the game．Students，researchers，writers，historians，and anyone else who has got used over the years to treating the vast Rose Main Reading Room as an office or a reading room came up against a new rule．You are no longer allowed to bring a bag larger than eleven inches by fourteen inches into the library．If you walk in with one，you must leave it at the coat check．You may keep its contents with you，however，and the library provides big clear plastic bags for them．You return them when you come back for your own bag．
What the library is trying to prevent，in this case，is people taking things out，rather than bringing things in．A librarian said on the second day，”It’s a big change for people who used to come and bring in half their flats．The people who use the library responsibly will continue to do so．The people who steal will continue to get away with it，if they really want to．”
32．How many reasons does the author list to explain the changes related to bags?

A．To change people’s way of reading．
B．To prevent people stealing things．
C．To help people better use the library．
D．To stop people from bringing in dangerous things．
35．How is the effect of the new rule according to the librarian?
A．Excellent． B．Satisfacfory． C．Harmful． D．Limited．
Palm oil(棕榈油)is the most widely used vegetable oil worldwide．It’s found in a wide variety of products from of vitamins to chocolate and bread． 36 The former makes it easy to spread，while the latter makes it good for our body．
But the oil’s popularity comes at a high price． 37 As a result，thousands of acres of rainforests in Indonesia，the world’s biggest palm oil producers，are being destroyed to make room for them．
With half of the world’s palm oil coming from Indonesia，orangutans(猩猩)have suffered a lot． 38 What’s worse，in 2015，wildfires endangered one-third of the remaining orangutans．Palm oil farms have also threatened tigers and elephants and caused water and air pollution．
39 However，it’s not easy given that no other natural vegetable oil has both of its qualities．Now，scientists are creating a new oil to replace it by using food waste and M．pulcherrima，a yeast(酵母)that grows on leaves，fruits and flowers． 40 Besides, the yeast can be widely produced in any weather．The scientists say their biggest challenge was to find a cheap way to change the sugars in the food waste to a form that the yeast can take in easily．The team is now trying to test if they can produce the oil at a lower cost．
A．Palm trees need lots of land to grow．
B．The easiest solution is to stop using palm oil so widely．
C．The palm oil is so expensive that many families can’t afford it．
D．In the last 20 years，over 80％of their habitat has been destroyed．
E．There are many things we can do to protect the endangered wild animals．
F．The oil is popular because it has a high melting point and contains healthy fats．
G．It eats the sugars from the waste and turns it into thick oil that has similar qualities to palm oil．

The first-ever direct China-to-Britain freight train(货运列车)arrived in London last week．It was the 61 (1ate)evidence of China’s efforts to redevelop the “Silk Road”trade routes that once stretched from Asia to Europe．
62 (travel)from China through Kazakhstan，Russia，Belarus，Poland，Germany， Belgium and France for 18 days，the train finally arrived in London．Inside the 68 containers 63 (be)household goods，clothing，cloth，bags and suitcases．“This is 64 (two)as quick as sea and it’s much，much cleaner and cheaper than air freight，”said Philippa Edmunds， 65 works at the British Campaign for Better Transport．
But the train itself may be more important than the goods 66 was carrying．Observers say the trip had a political message：that China is developing new trade routes and new markets．China needs to find more places 67 (sell)the goods it makes．That is the 68 (believe)of Jie Yu from the London School of Economics．“The domestic market in China now seems not to be very promising，so the Chinese are 69 (desperate)looking for the new markets．And obviously that freight train serves 70 a very good vehicle for the Chinese manufacturers and may help restore the business confidence inside China．”
I felt delighted to be informed the news that I would be our Student Union’s next minister of health．Therefore，when I calmed down，I began to realize what challenging the job would be．I can still remember the first time I hold a meeting with all the members，that was a real challenge for me．With so many eyes fixing on me，I struggled to speak as my face and ears turned complete red．I had never felt so nervous ago．
Although I went through a series of difficulty，I gained a lot as well—a plenty of new friends，the ability to communicate and an improvement in my organizational skills．
