These days shared bikes are becoming the center of attention in my WeChat friend circle. Many of my friends are sharing photos of themselves riding bikes, especially during the weekend in natural parks, and I can see people logging in (登录) and out of shared bike apps.
I’m very happy that there are shared bikes on the road. They have saved us a lot of time during special situations, and on beautiful, clear days, people enjoy riding them outside the city.
I tried shared bikes last week, and I didn’t like them very much. I think the first shared bikes without baskets are designed for athletes. They are very hard to ride, and the seats are not comfortable. It makes me wonder whether people really like riding shared bikes or are just saying this to agree with others.
A friend secretly told me she tried the bikes to fit in. She doesn’t like bikes and finds Beijing’s roads too hard for bike riding. But recently, the only way to hang out with her friends is riding out of town together. To join in social activities, she had to pick up bike riding again.
Another friend admitted that he started talking about and sharing photos on shared bikes in order just to appear modern and fashionable to friends. He started paying attention when shared bikes first came into use.
These views will give me something new to think about when I ride these bikes again.
28. What does the writer himself think of shared bikes?
A. They are very difficult to ride. B. Their seats are comfortable.
C. Athletes like shared bikes. D. They can save us a lot of money.
29. The underlined word “admitted” may mean _______________ in the passage.
A. told a lie B. told the truth C. kept a promise D. kept a secret
30. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?
A. It’s quite simple to use shared bikes at special time.
B. Some people only appear to be interested in shared bikes.
C. The writer likes the bikes without baskets because they are for athletes.
D. Some people like to share photos riding bikes because they want to agree with others.

Everyone knows that it’s hard to drink in space because of the low gravity, but Chinese astronauts Jing Haipeng and Chen Dong showed us how they drank tea on a TV show during the month-long trip in Shenzhou XI spaceship last year. They used a specially made tea cup and a special Pu’er cream to drink tea while standing upside down.
The Pu’er tea cream they drank is produced in Yunnan province, which is known for its Pu’er tea industry.
“Drinking hot tea is harder,” said Jing Haipeng. “The difficult part of drinking tea in space is that there should not be anything left after the tea dissolves (溶解) in water, also, the solubility（溶解度）of the tea should be low since water in space can only be warmed to 60 degrees at most.”
The tea cream the astronauts drank is produced by Gongrunxiang Tea Industry Corp in Kunming. Zhang Guanghui, manager of Gongrunxiang, said that the company tries to produce a tea cream that’s a safe, healthy tea product. Tea products are often reported to be polluted by air and heavy metals. “I never imagined that one day our tea cream would help astronauts to drink tea in space,” Zhang said, adding that drinking tea in space can be seen as a turning point for the Pu’er tea industry.
“For us, astronauts’ drinking tea in space means our technology used in the tea industry has had some achievements,” Zhang said. “In the future, more tea producers will use it to improve the tea industry.”

A. Drinking is very hard in the low-gravity situation.
B. The solubility of the tea should remain the same.
C. They have to use a kind of specially made tea cup.
D. There should be nothing left after the tea dissolves in water.

A) 阅读下面短文，根据所读内容，在文章后第56-65小题的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词，并将答案填写在答卷纸标号为56-65的相应位置上。 注意：每个空格只填1个单词
We often see top students around us and everyone knows about them. Let us take Jenny as an example. She is the monitor of our class. She spends a lot of time working for our class. But she always gets good grades in all subjects. How do students like Jenny do that? When I asked her, she said, “Hard work is not the whole story. It’s not how long you sit at the desk with your books open. It’s what you do as you are sitting.” In fact, we can see many top students spend fewer hours on their studies than their classmates. Jenny gave me some valuable suggestions.
If your math teacher gives you five problems, you should do six. If your Chinese teacher gives eight pages of reading, you should read nine. The more you practice, the more you learn.
Studying is a matter of your personal interest, so choose the way you are most comfortable with. Some people like working at night when the house is quiet, while others like doing their work early in the morning. However, others like studying as soon as they arrive home from school while the work is fresh in their minds. No matter which way suits you, try to do your best.
Studying is your business and the business comes before entertainment. When you are studying, phone calls should go unanswered, TV shows unwatched, snacks given up. Studying is the only thing in your mind. Nothing can pull your attention away from what you are studying.
Studying is like eating. You should eat a little at a time. You can plan what to do today, but don’t do too much. When you can’t finish the work you planned to do, you will feel stressed and may lose confidence. On the other hand, you will not study well without a good plan. It all depends on how you manage your time.
The students who hand in a clearly written paper are already half way to get an A. Tidy papers are likely to get higher marks than messy ones. When you write clearly and do your work carefully, the thoughts in your mind are clear. You are able to make fewer mistakes.

For thousands of years, poems have been the favorite types of literature in China. There were many famous poets from different periods of time in Chinese h 66 , and most of their poems are s 67 read and enjoyed today.
To remind people o 68 those classic Chinese poems, CCTV has produced a TV p 69 called Chinese Poem Competition. The final of the show’s second season was shown in February.
