Last year I buy a refrigerator in your store on Chang An road. We all like shape of the refrigerator. And recently I find something is wrong with it. It begins to make noise when it turned on. At first it is low but gradually it become louder and louder. To make the matter worse, it even stops working sometimes. We all feel disappointing. I am writing you to ask for help. Would you please send a people to repair it? I will at home this weekend. Please call me before you come to here.
My telephone number is 6606.5531. Thanks you very much.

The American expression "shoo-in" means someone or something that seems sure to win a race or competition.
Before a big football game, supporters of each are certain to argue (争论) about which side will win. Sometimes, however, one team appears so much stronger than the others that everyone agrees it will win. The stronger team is a shoo-in. there is no way that it can lose.
The expression "shoo-in" comes from horse racing. It comes from the word "shoo". That is not the shoe we wear on our feet. It's another word, S-H-O-O. To shoo is an expression hundreds of years old that means to force an animal to move in a desired direction.
Many years ago dishonest riders sometimes agreed secretly to control their horses so that one chosen horse would win the race. All but one of the riders would hold back their horses. The chosen rider would shoo his horse ahead of the others, and win the race. The other riders would secretly bet large amounts of money that the chosen horse would win. The public soon learned about such races. They began to call the winner of such a race a "shoo-in".
These days, people use shoo-into describe any athlete or competitor that seems certain to win, even without cheating. American runner Edwin Moses won more than hundred races before he ran the hurdle race in the nineteen-eighty-four Olympic Games. Everyone said Moses was a shoo-in, and that he could not lose. And they were
right. He won the gold medal.

3.The main idea of the passage is that "shoo-in" ________.
A. is used to admire a person who seems to be sure to win a race
B. is a word used to describe a dishonest person
C. is used for any athlete or competitor that seems too clever to be cheated
D. is used for anyone or anything that is certain to win a game
4.This passage can best be titled_______.
A. Be Sure to Win B. Shoo-in, a Sure Winner

Finding a good friend can be quite difficult in the contemporary lives of teenagers. I was once baffled by what the definition of a good friend was, until I discovered a single step that, if taken, would make you the greatest friend.
It is willingness. That is all it takes in order to be considered a good friends. Willingness must come from within your heart. Listening to your friends makes them feel important, special and wanted. The will to sacrifice for your friends will also take you a step closer to being a good friend. For instance, as you are about to leave to enjoy your Saturday night, your best friend calls you right when you are stepping out and tells you how terrible he feels, you must be willing to give up your Saturday night and go to your friends house and try to comfort him in anyway that you can.
You must always be willing to give advice to your friends. For example, if your friends are in a situation where they do not know what to do, you must be willing to think things through and try to give them the best advice. The willingness to care is also a big must in being a good friend. You must care about how your friends feel and what they’re experiencing. Caring about your friends is one of the best things you can do, because when your friends are in their time of need and the whole world seems to turn against them, you must be the one to care about them.
Nobody ever said being a good friend was easy. If you want to be a good friend, you have to be willing to listen, sacrifice, give advice and care about your friends.

Science and technology have advanced at such a rate that cloning has now become a reality. The possibility of cloning humans is a serious issue(争论点) and raises ethical(伦理的) questions. In my opinion, cloning is useful for research into cures for disease. However, I think that it needs to be approached with caution and carefully monitored by governments.
Research into cloning and stem(严格的) cell production is primarily aimed at finding new treatments for currently incurable illnesses. While this would improve the quality of life for many, not enough is understood about what effects cloning would have on the world in the future. This is primarily because we do not understand enough about the results of cloning and both the physical and psychological effects that it is likely to have on cloned humans and on the rest of the world. Furthermore, it is thought that a cloned human would be unlikely to survive birth and would suffer from complications(并发症) resulting from malformed(畸形) organs .
There are also serious ethical issues in danger. In essence(在本质上), those who are against cloning would argue that scientists have no right to play God and to interfere(干扰)with natural processes. Producing embryos for the purpose of harvesting stem cells for research presents important questions about the nature and status of the embryo being produced. It may also make us question whether throwing it away after use reduces the value we place on human life.
In conclusion, I do not agree that research into cloning using human embryos should continue. This is not only because it may reduce the value we place on human life, but also because not enough is known about the effects. However, I do think that if there is a way to produce stem cells using cloning which does not put human life at risk, then governments should continue to support it.
1.What is the writer’s general opinion on cloning?
A. It is useful in every area of research.
B. It needs to be carefully controlled by governments.
C. It is useful for research into cures for disease if it is controlled.
D. It is only useful for research into cures for disease.
2.The underlined word “approach” in the first paragraph means “______”
A. reach a high level or amount B. move forward
C. come near D. deal with
3.The writer’s main reason against cloning is that ______.
A. not enough is known about the effects of cloning
B. a cloned human would be likely to die of malformed organs
C. cloning has negative physical and psychological effects on clones
D. it would affect the quality of life for many
4.In the last paragraph, the writer thinks governments should______
A. not put human life at risk
B. support all forms of research into stern cell production
C. not support any form of research into stern cell production
D. support research into stern cell production harmless to humans life
