Once upon a time, there was an old businessman, who came to a small town when it was about 12 o’clock at night. He found an inn and decided to stay there for the night. After he had gone to his room, t he owner said to his wife, "Look at his suitcase, dear. I’m sure there are lots of valuable things in it. I want to steal it when he is asleep." "No, no," said the woman. "He must look for his suitcase tomorrow morning. Then he’ll take you before the judge." They thought and at last the woman had an idea. "We have forgetful grass," said the woman, "Why not put some into his tea? If he has the tea, he will forget to take his suitcase away.""How clever you are!" said the owner, "Don’t forget it when you make tea for him."
There was once a lonely girl who longed so much for love. One day while she was walking in the woods she found two starving songbirds. She took them home and put them in a small cage，caring them with love. Luckily, the birds grew strong little by little. Every morning they greeted her with a wonderful song. The girl felt great love for the birds.
One day the girl left the door to the cage open accidentally. The larger and stronger of the two birds flew from the cage. The girl was frightened that he would fly away. So as he flew close，she grasped him wildly. Her heart felt glad at her success in capturing him. Suddenly, she felt the bird go week, so she opened her hand and stared in horror at the dead bird. It was her desperate love that had killed him.
She noticed the other bird moving back and forth on the edge of the cage. She could feel his strong desire－needing to fly into the clear, blue sky. Unwillingly, she lifted him from the cage and tossed him softly into the air. The lucky bird circled once, twice, three times.
The girl watched delightedly at the bird. Her heart was no longer concerned with her loss. What she wanted to see was that the bird could fly happily. Suddenly the bird flew closer and landed softly on her shoulder. It sang the sweetest tune that she had ever heard.
Remember, the fastest way to lose love is to hold on to it too tight； the best way to keep love is to give it wings!

Nikola Tesla was a great inventor, engineer, and physicist. He is best known for his contribution to
the design of the modern alternating current (AC)(交流电) electricity supply system.
Tesla started working in the electrical fields before he came to work for Thomas Edison in the United
States in 1884. However, he soon made up his mind to set up his own labs and companies so as to carry on
further study of a range of electrical devices. His AC induction motor(交流感应电动机) was given a
patent by George Westinghouse, who also hired Telsa as an expert to help develop a power system using
Tesla’s achievements and his abilities to demonstrate his great inventions made him famous all over

2016年全国高考英语科考试大纲（课标版）与2015年相比，在试题结构、赋分、题型、能力要求、时间、分值、难度等方面，无实质变化。基于高考真题研究和评价并综合我处和 其他高考研 究专家对明升m88网址英语命题趋势做出提示，信息仅供参考。
考点设置注重语境设置，突出考查考生在不同语境下对词汇，句法和语篇的理解和运用能力。 试题的语境化设计可体现在各种题型的设计中，特别是 从2014年开始引入的新题型--语法填空，更加明显地体现了在语境中考查语法基础知识的特点。
在语言学习的过程中，语言知识的掌握起着非常重要的作用，不容轻视。但语言学习的最终目的是掌握语言运用能力，是用学到的语言知识在实际生活中进行交际 ，所以，语言运用能力的考查应该是试卷中的重点。这一思想会贯穿在试卷 的整体设计和各小题命制过程中。
从历年的高考英语试 卷可以看出，从试卷中的听力、完形填空、阅读和书面表达等，各部分的选材尽量体 现以上原则。如果考生知识面较广，对这些内容的背景知识有一定程度的了解 ，会在阅读中获得一些益处。
===============Excused from recycling (回收利用) because you live in a high rise with a rubbish chute(垃圾道)? You won’t be for long. Miami’s Mark Shantzis has made it simple for those living in tall buildings to use the chute and recycle too.
In Shantzis’ Hi-Rise Recycling System, a chute leads to a pie-shaped container with six boxes that can turn around when operated. The system, which fits in the same space as the chute and container now in use, enables glass, plastic, paper, metal, and other rubbish to go into separate boxes.
The system is controlled from a board next to the chute door. The board has a button for each class of recycling materials (as well as for unrecyclables). At the press of a button, a microcomputer locks all other floors’ chute door and sets the recycling container turning until the right box comes under the chute. The computer also counts the loads and gives a signal by phone when the box is full. And a particular piece of equipment breaks up the nonrecyclables.
Sorting(分类) recyclables before they are collected saves the use of expensive materials recovery equipment which otherwise has to do the sorting. Such equipment often makes recycled materials very expensive, so expensive that tons of recyclables remain wasted. Shantzis believes his system could help recycled materials become more cost-effective.
1. The purpose in writing this text is _________.
A. to encourage people to recyc
Your body, which has close relations with the food you eat, is the most important thing you own, so it needs proper treatment and proper nourishment (营养). The old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away "is not as silly as some people think. The body needs fruit and vegetables because they contain vitamin C. Many people take extra vitamins in pill form, believing that these will make them healthy.
But a good diet is made up of nourishing food and this gives all the vitamins you need. The body doesn’t need or use extra vitamins, so why waste money on them?
In the modern western world, many people are too busy to bother about eating properly.They throw anything into their stomachs, eating hurriedly and carelessly. The list of illnesses caused or made worse by bad eating habits is frightening.
21."Your body has close relations with the food you eat."It really means that ______.
A. all kinds of food you eat can be made into your body
B. your body is made up of the food you eat
C. what you eat has great effect on your health
D. the more you eat, the fitter you will feel
22. The old saying referred to in the passage tells us that ______.
A. eating apples regularly does lots of good to our health
B. the apple is t
