    Tina, Mike, Jeff, Linda和Vera在生活、学习和运动中遇到一些问题,请阅读下面五个片段(1-5),并从后面的选项(A-E)中帮他们找到解决问题的方法或建议。
  1. Tina has been invited to one of her friends' birthday party next Sunday. She is worried about this now because she has never taken part in any birthday party, and nobody can tell her something about it.
  2. Mike's favorite is playing sports. He gets up early at 6:00 every morning. Then he goes out to exercise by the riverside. He runs along the river for nearly half an hour, and then takes a walk for a few minutes. He goes back home for breakfast at 7:30. But he always feels weak after morning exercises.
  3. Jeff is interested in the computer. His parents bought him a Dell computer last month. He wants to surf the Internet. But he heard that there are many terrible things for kids on the Internet. His parents don’t have the knowledge about this.
  4. Linda's parents will be away for China on business for more than half a year very soon. She can’t go with them because she has to go to school. She will be at home alone. Nobody will take care of her, and she can’t do chores herself.
  5. Vera is a clever girl. She does well in her studies. But Vera doesn’t like playing with her classmates, and she feels bored when her classmates ask her questions about studies. So she can’t get along well with her classmates.
  A.Don’t give your personal information such as your address, telephone number, etc. on the Internet without your parents’ permission. Never agree to get together with someone you “meet” online and never send a person your picture or anything else without first checking with your parents.
  B.On the day of the party, make sure you arrive on time and show that you’re happy to be there. Wear something suitable. Greet your friend with a “Happy Birthday” and hand over the gift. Make sure you have put a card with your name on it.
  C.Always smile, so people don’t think you are serious and hard to get along with. Be polite and modest. If you are rude, people will not like you. If people have troubles, you help them. Then, when you have troubles, they will help you, too.
  D.Parents should get the kids to do their chores around the house. If their clothes need washing, they wash them themselves. Let the kids prepare their own meals. Let them clean their room, cook for themselves, wash the dishes, etc.
  E.Let’s say that the last time you eat something at night is at 6 or 7 pm (just an example). The following day, you don’t eat breakfast but wait until you finish sports - you’ve gone many hours with nothing in your stomach. Your body has to work hard. It’s not good. What’s more, consider reducing the time and strength of your morning exercises.
    That little “a” with a circle around it is most commonly used as the “at” symbol. The symbol is usually found in e-mail addresses. Surprisingly though, there is no official (官方的) name for this symbol, there are lots of strange ways to describe the @ symbol. Before the @ symbol became the popular symbol for e-mail, it was used to show the cost of something. For example, if you bought 6 apples, you might write 6 apples @$1.10 each.
  As e-mail is becoming more and more popular, the @ symbol or the “at” sign is used between a person’s online user name and his mail server address, for example, joe@126.com. The symbol’s use on the Internet made it necessary for people to put this symbol on keyboards in the countries that had never seen or used the symbol before.
  The actual origin (起源) of the @ symbol remains a mystery. According to an ancient western legend, during the Middle Ages before the invention of the printing press (印刷机), every letter of a word had to be written by hand for each copy of a book. The monks (僧侣) looked for ways to make the letters of common words less. Although the word “at” was quite short, it was quite a common word in texts and documents. As a result, they circled around “a” and created @.

2. Why did the monks in the old times create @ most probably?
  A. Because @ could be printed very easily and clearly.
  B. Because they were ordered to invent some symbols.
  C. Because they didn’t want to write the word “at” again and again.
  D. Because they wanted to make their texts or documents look special.

    As we know, there are differences between Western culture and Chinese culture. We can see differences when we pay attention to the way words are used. Let’s look at some words about animals and plants. Most expressions in Chinese about the dog, for example, “a homeless dog”, “a mad dog”, “a running dog” and “a dog catching a mouse”, have negative meanings. But in Western countries, dogs are considered to be honest and good friends of humans. In English, people use the dog to describe positive actions. For example, “you are a lucky dog” means you are a lucky person. And “every dog has its day” means each person has good luck sometimes. To describe a person's serious illness, they say “sick as a dog”. The word “dog-tired” means very tired. However, Chinese love cats very much. But in Western culture, “cat” is often used to describe a woman who is cruel(冷酷的). There are many other examples of how “cat” is used differently as well.
  The rose is regarded as a symbol of love in both China and some Western countries. People think the rose stands for love, peace, courage and friendship. And the rose is the national f lower of England, America and many other countries.
  The words about plants and animals are used in positive or negative ways in different cultures. We can learn about many differences in cultures by comparing how some words are used.
