On February 20, 2021, Jasmine Harrison became the youngest woman to row (劃艇) alone across the Atlantic Ocean. It took the 21-year-old swimming teacher just over 70 days to do it.
Ms. Harrison, who’s from England, didn’t have much experience in rowing long distances (距離). She got the idea three years ago when she happened to be in Antigua.
There she saw the end of the 2017 Talisket Whisky Atlantic Challenge. “I just thought, I want to do this so I’m going to do it.” she said.
Every year, rowers taking part in the Atlantic Campaign set out from the Canary Islands in December and row about 4,800 kilometers across the Atlantic. Some row in teams of two, three or four. Others, like Ms. Harrison, row by themselves.
It wasn’t easy. Every day, Ms. Harrison would row for about 12 hours. She rowed about 20,000 strokes (劃) a day.
Ms. Harrison had a smart phone that allowed her to talk with family and friends every day. She had other company along the way. She saw lots of sea life, including some whales. For several days, she was followed by a small group dolphins (海豚). “I was in their environment,” she said. “It was just amazing.”
There was danger, too. Twice, her boat was turned over in the night by large waves. She hurt her elbow quite badly. Another time, she nearly ran into a ship.
Somehow, she kept going. Finally, on February 20, after 70 days, 3 hours and 48 minutes, she reached Antigua —the end of the journey. Ms. Harrison’s rowing has made her the youngest woman ever to row alone across the Atlantic. Before, that record was held by Kaitie Spotz from the USA, who crossed the Atlantic was a 22-year-old in 2010.
46. When did Ms. Harrison get the idea of taking part in the Atlantic Campaign?
A. In 2010.B. In 2018.C. In 2021.
47. Ms. Harrison set out from ________ in the Atlantic Campaign.
A. LondonB. AntiguaC. the Canary Islands
48. What does the underlined word “company” probably mean in Chinese?
A. 陪伴B. 賓客C. 公司
49. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. Ms. Harrison is a 21-year-old animal keeper.
B. Ms. Harrison used a smartphone to talk with family and friends.
C. It was easy and safe for Ms. Harrison to finish her journey.
50. What’s the best title of the passage?
A. The 2021 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge.
B. The lovely sea life in the Atlantic Ocean.
C. The youngest woman to row along across the Atlantic.
Computers, smartphones, and other machines are the perfect servants. They always do what they are “told”. We usually “tell” them to do things by using a mouse or keyboard. But what if we could just talk to them normally and tell them what to do?
This type of technology, known as voice control or voice recognition (識別), has been shown in films and TV shows since the 1960s. The TV show Star Trek showed some spaceships which could reply to human voice commands (命令). The film 2001: A Space Odyssey showed a computer that human astronauts could talk to. It was mainly used to play chess and repair the astronauts’ spaceship.
On the other hand, real-world voice recognition is used for more everyday tasks. For example, Apple and Amazon made two pieces of voice recognition software (軟件). They can be asked to do many things, such as setting alarms and playing music and so on.
One of the nice things about voice recognition is that it can be used when we’re on the go. When you’re driving a car or walking down the street, it’s not convenient or even dangerous to pick up your smartphone and type away on the keyboard. Voice recognition allows you to focus on whatever you’re doing at the moment while still doing other tasks.
Speech recognition software is also helpful to deaf people. It can be used to “listen” to spoken words and turn them into text that deaf people can read. Some speech recognition software can even hear words spoken in one language and then translate them into another language.
51. According to Paragraph 1, how do we usually control machines in daily life?
A. By using body language.B. By talking to them.C. By using a mouse or keyboard.
52. When was voice recognition first shown in films and TV shows?
A. In the 1980s.B. In the 1970s.C. In the 1960s.
53. How does voice recognition help to keep you safe while driving a car?
A. It helps you to focus on what you are doing.
B. It allows you to type on the keyboard more conveniently.
C. It can control your car for a short while.
54. In the last paragraph, what can we infer about the speech recognition software?
A. It can hear words spoken in English and then translate them into Chinese.
B. It can turn text into spoken words for the blind.
C. It can help you do anything that you want to do.
55. Where do you probably read the passage?
A. In a movie ad.B. In a science magazine.C. In a sports magazine.
It is said that the eyes are the windows to our soul. 56. _______ Your eyes need everyday attention.
First, you have to pay more attention to your diet (飲食). 57. ______ It’s good for your eyes. Also, a regular amount of vitamins A and B2 should also be taken.
Second, you must have regular and enough sleep. This relaxes the eye muscles and gives them the rest they need. Sleep can help the body repair its tired tissue (組織). 58. ________ Loss of sleep can give you dark circles under your eyes.
59. ___________Blink (眨眼) your eyes at regular periods to keep your eyes moist (濕潤的).
Last, you should treat your eyes correctly. For example, if you get something in your eyes, don’t start rubbing (揉) it. Rubbing is harmful to your eyes. Don’t read or write in poor or bright sunlight because sunlight can cause eye tiredness. 60. _____ Too much reading, writing, watching television or working on a computer can also cause eye tiredness, so rest is required.
Jane was not a confident girl before, because she was fat and others often laughed at her. As a result, Jane became very shy. She was scared to say hello to strangers. She was afraid to ask simple questions and speak loud in front of others. It seemed that she felt afraid of everything in her life. She used to believe that she would be like this all her life.
But one day, her friend Paul’s words changed her mind. He encouraged Jane to change herself. He said, “If you can give it a try, you will have a chance to make a change. But if you never try, your life is only going to get worse.” Jane was deeply touched by what Paul said. She thought, “Why not have a try? After all, I had nothing to lose.”
The first thing Jane did was lose weight. She had a strict diet and did exercise every day. After 6 months, she lost 90 pounds. This taught her that she could change herself.
A few months later, Jane heard about a speech competition at her university. She plucked up (鼓起) the courage to sign up for the competition. For the first time, she was able to share her story and speak loud in front of many people. In the end, she got a big prize!
After the competition, Jane made a to-do list and started changing rapidly. She tried her best to finish the things on the list one by one. When working on them, she became more and more confident.

Ladies and gentlemen,
Today I’d like to talk about thrift. Thrift is one of the traditional virtues in China. However, there exists much waste in our daily life. For example, some people keep the tapes on after cleaning hands. Some people often forget to turn off the lights before leaving the rooms. And many of us throw away lots of food and other things.
I think we should develop a habit of saving things around us. Firstly, remember to turn off the tapes and lights in time. Second, we should spend less money on things that we don’t need. Lastly, don’t take more food and clear our plates.
All such small things can help us become a person with good virtues. Let’s fight against waste from now on.
That’s all. Thank you!
