Even though it’s the 18th movie from the Marvel Universe, Black Panther is the
first one to feature a black superhero with a primarily black cast(演员阵容).
The film tells the story of the Black Panther, a superhero who takes his
father’s place as king of the fictional African country Wakanda. The film came
out in Chinese mainland cinemas on March 9, passing the $1 billion (about 6
billion yuan) mark at the global box office and becoming the No. 2 superhero
release of all time on March 10.
However, Black Panther means more than just the money it’s making. As the
Guardian noted, the film is already being regarded as “a positive force for
The wild success of Black Panther lies in the fact that it gives voices to
minorities who are rarely given room in popular culture. “It carries a weight
that neither Thor nor Captain America could lift: serving a black audience that
has long gone under-represented,” Time noted.
“It makes me feel proud and confident that we made it on screen in that way,”
Rasheed Butler, 14, from a black community in California, US, told the Marin
The superhero Black Panther is inspiring, but the movie also highlights
brilliant black women. For example, Black Panther’s teenage sister is a tech
genius. She designs gadgets for her brother and develops resources that make the
isolated Wakanda wealthy scientifically and technologically advanced.
“What I love about the way this film represents women is that each and every one
of us is an individual, unique,” Kenyan-Mexican actress Lupita Nyong’o, who
plays a spy in the movie, told the Los Angeles Times. “I think that’s a very
powerful message to send to children – both male and female.”
Powerful characters aside, the movie has social meanings. While the Black
Panther tries to keep his country and people away from the outside world, others
want to make use of Wakanda’s advanced technology to fight injustice . “But
neither option is truly tenable,” The Verge noted. “It suggests that these
destructive cycles may only be broken through guidance, education, and global
Instead of hiding away from current issues of race and economic differences, the
movie explores what it means to be black in the US, in Africa and in the world.
It deals “head-on with the issues affecting modern-day black life”, Time
24. What is the article mainly about?
A. The success and main plot of Black Panther.
B. The charm of the main characters in Black Panther.
C. The main characters and social impact of Black Panther.
D. How black women are represented in Black Panther.
25. According to the article, the movie Black Panther is successful mainly
A. it reflects social changes in African countries
B. it makes the voices of black people heard
C. it is the first movie to feature black women
D. it explores the issues of race and economic differences
26. According to Lupita Nyong’o, women in the movie are shown as _______.

27. The underlined word “tenable” in the second-to-last paragraph probably means
A. wrong B. easy C. reasonable D. interesting
Researchers from France and Italy discovered that Canadian parents are less
strict with their children than mothers and fathers in France and Italy.
“Our most important finding was the difference between Canadians and the
others,” said Professor Michel Claes, the lead author of the study. “Canadians
focus on independence and negotiation. On the other hand, Italians, for example,
exercise more control. We found Canadians seem to focus on negotiation in case
of a conflict.”
Claes said Canada, France and Italy were selected for the study because they
share important cultural and social factors. “We chose French Canadians because
they share the same language as French, and originally came from France and
share certain values. Italy was included because it was considered to have
similar, strong and important family values.” he explained.
The researchers examined the emotional ties between parents and their children
by questioning 1,256 students aged 11 to 19 years old.
Canadian students reported less control and more free actions, according to the
study. Italian parents were stricter and French parents were somewhere in the
Claes explains that the differences lie in education in Canada, France and
“North America has its own educational values, which promote individualization.
Tolerance and comprehension are encouraged. Italy, on the other hand, promotes
respect of authority, control, and the need for permission,” he said.
Children from all three countries described their mothers as warm and
communicativee. Italian and Canadian children had similar feelings about their
fathers, and reported high levels of emotional ties. But French fathers were
generally thought by their children to be more distant and cold.
“We were surprised by this,” Claes admitted. “It seems as though the
relationships between French mothers and their children were becoming closer
over time, while fathers maintain a form of distance and coldness, which is more
of a source of conflict in France than in the other countries.”
28. Professor Michel Claes believes that Canada, France and Italy ________.
A. have some similar cultural traditions
B. have the same family problems
C. have experienced some different social changes
D. have experienced similar economic developments
29. How did the researchers carry out the study ?
A. By collecting answers of children from Canada, France and Italy.
B. By collecting answers of parents from Canada, France and Italy.
C. By questioning parents and their children from Italian Canadian families.
D. By questioning children from French Canadian families.
30. According to Michel Claes, what mainly leads to the differences in parent-
children relationships among Canada, France and Italy?
A. Cultural backgrounds. B. Traditional ideas.
C. Educational values. D. Historical events.
31. Which of the following is NOT a finding of the study?
A. French children have troubled relationships with their fathers.
B. Canadian children have close relationships with their parents.
C. Italian children have better relationships with their parents.
D. Kids from France have closer ties with their moms.
When a laptop or smartphone battery starts losing its power，the only options are
to buy an expensive replacement，or just keep it plugged in all the time．But a
woman Mya Le Thai may have found the answer to this problem．
Thai was frustrated that the batteries for her wireless devices degraded(降级)over
time，until they failed to charge fully．She did not like having to keep her
laptop connected to an electrical outlet to keep it powered on．So，she decided to
do something about that problem．At first，she and her team at UC Irvine thought
about inventing a new battery．But as they experimented，Thai discovered something
that might permit lithium—ion(锂离子)batteries to last forever．
Lithium-ion batteries power most wireless devices．Over time，the batteries lose
the ability to hold a charge．Most of these batteries have a life span of about
7,000 charging cycles before they die．One of the reasons lithium—ion batteries
degrade is their use of nanowires to carry electricity．Nanowires are extremely
thin．A human hair is thousands of times thicker，for example．Nanowires are
extremely efficient carriers of electricity，which makes them useful in batteries
But，Thai had a theory—the nanowires might last longer if covered with a gel(凝胶)．
She and her team tested this theory．“It was a long process and a lot of work,”
Thai said．The team tried many coverings for the wires．PMMA，a type of plastic，was
one of them．The nanowires were coated with PMMA and cycled through charges 200，
000 times．The PMMA-coated nanowires showed no evidence of damage．The results
suggest that batteries could last forever，without losing charging ability．
Thai hopes to continue her research to understand why this gel works so well and
to see if any other gel could create better results and she is enjoying the
publicity about her discovery．She said she never expected her research to get
media coverage．“It’s kind of cool,”she said．“I'm really glad people are showing
interest in my work and not just in the work itself，but also in technology and
32．Why did Mya Le Thai work on lithium-ion batteries?
A．She disliked the batteries for her laptop．
B．Her team were assigned to invent a new battery．
C．Many people thought batteries were too expensive．
D．The batteries would soon lose the function to charge fully．
33．What can we infer about nanowires?
A．They last only 7,000 charging cycles．
B．They are too weak to carry electricity．
C．They are not suitable to be used in batteries．
D．Their thinness is a cause of batteries degrade．
34．What might be Thai and her team’s breakthrough?
A．Coating nanowires in gel． B．A new kind of battery．
C．New materials for batteries．D．A new way of charging batteries．
35．What may be the best title for the passage?
A．The options of batteries for wireless devices B．A woman invents a life—long
C．Mya Le Thai discovered Nanowires D．The reasons for batteries degrading
How to Turn Your Goals into Habits
First we make our habits, then our habits make us. It’s such a simple concept,
yet it’s something we don’t always do.
I believe that having ONE goal to focus on is much more powerful than having
many goals. By putting the belief into practice, I have achieved a lot of
personal goals over time. 36 My answer takes a little explaining. I try to turn
my goals into habits, and in doing so, I put my goals on autopilot. Turning a
goal into a habit means really focusing on it for at least a month. The more you
can focus, the more it'll be on autopilot. 37 You’ll still do it, but you only
have to use minimal force to maintain it, and you can focus on your next goal or
Take my marathon goal as an example. I was just starting running and had the
brilliant idea to run a marathon within a year. So that was my goal. 38 First, I
had to make running a daily habit. Second, I had to report to people in order to
have accountability (负责) so that I could not quit easily. I focused on the daily
running habit for about a month, and didn’t have any other goals or habits. When
the running habit stuck, I started reporting to people I knew and blogging about
my running every day.
39 I could focus on new goals without having to worry about the marathon. I
still had to do the running, of course, but it didn’t require constant focus. 40
I was able to achieve this because, all year long, I had daily running and
accountability habits. I put my marathon goal into autopilot, so instead of
struggling with it daily for an entire year, I focused on it for one month and
was able to accomplish it while focusing on new habits and goals.
A. And eventually, I ran the first marathon in my life.
B. At the beginning, it was very difficult for me to achieve this goal.
C. But in order to achieve it, I broke it down into two habits.
D. With this accountability, there’s no way I could stop running.
E. Once you put it on autopilot, you don't have to focus on it much.
F. My readers asked me how I was able to achieve them while working on different
G. Once those two habits were established, my marathon goal was pretty much on

special needs classes and poured it out as anger and depression. But one
activity 43 this view of myself: chess.
I started to play chess with my father after school 44 because I wanted to beat
him at something. My father was a 45 man, fond of physics, writing, religion, …,
almost every field. He was called a walking dictionary. So, winning in chess
against my father would be a 46 that I had intellectual power. On the small
chessboard, I had a chance to 47 my so-called inability.
Game after game, I wanted to beat my father even more. I started to study chess
books and play against a chess computer to 48 my skills. One weekend, I finally
checkmated(将杀) my father on a ferry ride, which made me feel 49 .
Two years later, I became the second board 50 my school chess team, with our top
board being the best high school player in the state. But before the tournament
season, our top player 51 to come. There came my chance to play as top board
against the best players in other states.
I was determined to show who I had become: a(n)52 person able to win with
calculation, logic and will. My most 53 game came in the final round. Our team
was facing a high school which only excellent students attended. It was 54 a
match between a special needs student and a smart soul. My opponent(对手) was
playing well and kept 55 while I kept defending to keep my king safe. He spent
long trying to break down my defenses, but could not find the final push. I 56

With little 57 left, he started to make rapid moves.58 he could make the final
decision, he ran out of time. Honestly, as his clock flag fell, I jumped up out
of my seat and kissed the floor out of excitement. Of course it was not the most
sportsmen-like 59 , but I could not control my emotions.
While holding my winner’s cup, I knew I was not 60 . The inferiority complex(
自卑感) had melted away, and I realized that underneath our thoughts, each person
is a genius.

Percy Shelley, an English poet, was born on August 4th, 1792. He is 61 (wide)
thought of as one of the most important 62(figure) of the Romantic Movement in
English literature. Shelley received early education at home and later, at the
age of 12, 63 (admit) to Eton College, which has a long history of more than 500
years, 64 (date) back to the 15thcentury. Then he attended Oxford University
shortly after he turned 18.
As 65 romantic poet, some of his poems, like Ode to the West Wind and Ode to A
Skylark, are among the most famous in English. 66 , in his own time, Shelley was
very unpopular for his political and 67 (religion) views. Fortunately, he
successively(先后) met Byron and Keats and befriended with them during his tour
around Europe after he married Mary Godwin, his second wife, 68 later became
famous as Mary Shelley, the author of the novelFrankenstein.
About a month before his 30thbirthday, 69 (welcome) his friend Leigh Hunt,
Shelley sailed to Leghorn. During the stormy return voyage, his small boat sank
and he drowned. It was not until days later 70 his body was washed ashore.
