B

I don't think I can recall a time when I wasn't aware of the beauty of the ocean. Growing

up in Australia, I had the good fortune of having the sea at my side. The first time I went to

Half moon Bay. I suddenly had the feeling of not being able to feel the ground with my feet

anymore.

For my 10th birthday, my sister and I Were taken out to the Great Barrier Reef. There

were fish in different colors, caves and layers of coral. They made such an impression on

me. When I learned that only 1 percent of Australia's Coral Sea was protected, I was shocked.

Australian marine life is particularly important because the reefs have more marine species

than any other country on earth. But sadly, only 45% of the world's reefs are considered

healthy.

This statistic is depressing, so it's important forms to do everything to protect them. The

hope that the Coral Sea remains a complete eco-system has led me to take action. I've become

involved with the Protect Our Coral Sea activity, which aims to create the largest marine park

in the world. It would serve as a place where the ocean's species will all have a safe place

forever.

Together, Angus and I created a little video and we hope it will inspire people to be a part of the movement. Angus also shares many beautiful childhood memories of the ocean as a young boy, who grew up sailing, admiring the beauty of the ocean, and trying to find the

secrets of ocean species.

4.From the underlined sentence in Para.1, we can learn the author_____.

Aseldom went surfing at the sea

Ais escaping from the Coral Sea gradually

Bdepends on reefs for living greatly

Acontribute to a complete eco-system

Bprevent more marine species being endangered

Draise more teenagers' environmental awareness

C

A water lily painting,Water Lily Pond, by Claude Monet, the French impressionist artist,

was sold for more than $80 million Tuesday, breaking the auction(拍卖)record for himself.

Water Lily Pond was part of a four-work collection of water lily paintings that Monet put up

for sale during his lifetime.

The four paintings of Monet's water lily garden were signed and dated by the artist in

1919. One of the other paintings is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, while

another was sold at auction in 1992 for $ 12.1 million and is in a private collection now. The

final painting in the series was cut into two before World War II.

"After a fierce bidding battle between a number of buyers in the room and on the

telephone, the painting finally was sold to a collector for $80. 4 million, setting a new world

record price for the artist at auction," said Olivier Camu, a scholar of impressionist art.

The last record for a Monet work was set in May when Le Pont du chemin de fer a

Argenteuil sold for $41.4 million.

The painting sold Tuesday was bought at a 1971 New York auction for $ 320,000. It has

not been exhibited since.

Monet's later works had unique characteristics, especially Grandes decorations, another

good example, which was bedded in Musee de I'Orangerie in Paris five months after Monet's

death in 1926.

Monet created his water lily garden in Giverny, France. He selected different water lilies

in an effort to get as many different colored flowers as possible, specially creating the garden

as a base for his paintings.

BIt was cut into halves before World War II.

D

Need for closure is a psychological term that describes a person's desire for a firm

answer to a question. Our need for closure is our natural preference for definite answers over

confusion and uncertainty. Every person has their own baseline level of need for closure. It

likely evolved via natural selection.

What I find really fascinating is how our need for closure is affected by the situation

we're in. Our need for closure rises when we have to act rather than just observe, and it

matters much more when we're rushed, or bored, or tired. Any stress can make our discomfort

with uncertainty increase, and a high need for closure negatively influences some of our most

important decisions: who we decide to trust, whether we admit we're wrong and even how

creative we are.

In hiring, for instance, a high need for closure leads people to put far too much weight on

their first impression. It's called the Urgency Effect. In one experiment, psychologists tried to

lower people's need for closure by telling them, right before participants are about to make

various judgments of a job candidate, that they'll be responsible in some way for them, or that

their judgments have serious consequences.

In making any big decision, it's not enough just to know that we should take our time.

We all know that important decisions shouldn't be rushed. The problem is that we don't keep

that advice in mind when it matters. So, one of the best solutions is to formalize the reminders.

Before making important decisions, write down not just advantages and disadvantages but

what the consequences could be. Also, think about how much pressure you're under. If your

need for closure is particularly high that day, it's even more important to think twice.

12. How does "need for closure" probably come into being?

ABy nature.

BBy accident.

CBy acquiring.

DBy imitating.

13. It can be inferred that a high need for closure_____.

Abrings about more stress

Bcauses discomfort and uncertainty

Cleads to not so good decisions

Dpromotes one's creativity

14. In the experiment the psychologists reduced participants ' need for closure by telling

them to_____.

Abe cautious about their judgments

Bvalue their first impression

Cbe responsible for their boss

Dpay little attention to the consequences

15. What would the author probably discuss in the paragraph that follows?

AAnother strategy to escape the pressures of modern life.

BSome serious consequences of making decisions.

COther approaches to making important decisions.

DMore helpful solutions to high need for closure.

白处的最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。

Goal setting seems to be a hot topic, yet it's easy to know about but difficult to practice.

People set goals, work hard at them for even a few months, and then _  them. Next

year, they set the  goals. But why do so many people do it? They may be making goals

too  . But that isn't to say that they aren't  goals. They need to be broken apart into

smaller and  pieces. Make spoon-size goals and you'll accomplish them  .

Many people are probably unwilling to  you to reach your goals. They're  with

you when you have your own goals. They may even be enthusiastic about your  to change

something or accomplish something new.  , as you change and accomplish, the y may not

like it. Why? It's usually because your changes and accomplishments them that they

could be doing it, too...  they aren't!

You may have filled your _ with so many things that there's little  for your goals

to grow. We must be careful not to confuse busyness with  , as goals are always achieved

step by step. Be  about how you use your time and what you focus on. Success often

comes when you know what to , rather than what to include in your life.

Goal setting is like the pig and chicken walking out early one morning. The chicken

became really  when she saw a sign: "Ham & Eggs, $2. 99". She said to the pig, "Look,

we've got double billing again. " The pig said, "That's _ for you to say! For you, it's all in

a day's work. For me, it's total commitment Goal setting is all in a day's work. Goal  is

total commitment.
