In no particular order，here are some songs on the music app of my phone．
On a Sunday Afternoon by Lighter Shade of Brown—A student of mine introduced this rap song to me all the way back in the early 1990s，when I was teaching Spanish at a local university．The story in the song takes place not too far from where I live in Los Angeles．It’s a good driving song，nothing complicated or deep.
Say Something by A Great Big World—A more recent song about a couple losing contact with，each other. The piano part is very little playing but beautiful．
American Pie by Don McLean—Another song from my youth in the 80s，very popular with almost every American of my generation．It retells some of the key events of the middle 20th century，a song of happy memories of the past and wanting to return to those better times．
The Weight by The Band—Another old song，originally made public in 1968，but one I didn’t hear until I was in high school more than 10 years later．I don’t understand the words to the song completely，but the feeling of the song is very comforting to me．
Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers—This Los Angeles group wrote a song that I used to listen to when first moved to LA more than 25 years age．I didn’t know anyone here when I first arrived．When I got bored，I used to drive up and down the major streets that cross the city from east to west，listening to this song about the city of angel being as lonely as I am．(Don’t worry! I have Plenty of friends now．)
21．What does the underlined word“deep”probably mean?

C．With a normal meaning． D．With a significant meaning．

Antiquities are ancient objects and artworks．Museums acquire works to display from many different sources．Sometimes they purchase them．Other times they receive donations．Today there are strict rules forbidding art that has been stolen from other countries．However，antiquities that have been at museums for decades or even centuries may have arrived there by questionable means．Now，some countries claim that museums have a responsibility to return these antiquities to their original locations．
There are many examples of this debate．Perhaps the most famous is the argument between Greece and the UK over the Elgin Marbles．In the early 19th century，the Earl(伯爵) of Elgin had numerous sculptures taken from Greece to the UK．When Elgin did this，Greece was still a part of the Ottoman Empire．He claimed that he had received a permit to export the sculptures．Today the marbles are on display in the British Museum. However，Greece wants them to be returned to their original location．
Should museums return these antiquities? Experts disagree Malcolm Bell III says yes．Bell is a retired professor of art at the University of Virginia．He says，“Many antiquities and artworks have special cultural value for a particular community or nation．When these works are removed from their original cultural setting，they lose their context and the culture loses a part of its history．”
According to Bell，a country’s request for the return of an antiquity usually has a strong legal basis．It was exported illegally，and is now stolen property．He called the return of antiquities an expression of justice．
James Cuno says not always．Cuno is a president of an art museum in Los Angeles. He is also the author of the book Who Owns Antiquity? Cuno agrees that museums have a social and legal responsibility to return illegally exported antiquities．However，he doesn’t support the return of legally acquired works．
“An area of land held today by a given nation-state in the past likely belonged to a different political entity(實體)．Even if one wanted to reunite scattered works of art，where would one do so? Which among the many countries，cities，and museums in possession of parts of a work of art should be the chosen ‘home’ of the reunited Work?”Cuno believes that museums should collect art from the world’s diverse cultures. This should be done“through purchase or long-term loan and working in cooperation with museums and nations around the world”．
This debate is far from over．As a complex question with no easy answer，the issue requires more study.
24．The passage mainly discusses______________．
A．the return of antiquities B．the sources of ancient objects

A．artworks become valueless away from their culture
B．there is no clear answer to giving back antiquities

27．As to the debate，we can learn that___________.
A．the legality of antiquities seems a key factor
B．the opinions of experts are completely different
C．museums should look into the sources of antiquities they own
D．the return of antiquities is unlikely due to practical difficulties
JOHANNESBURG—They say cats have nine lives．Now a Chinese toad(蟾蜍)has joined that club of clever survivors．
South Africans are shocked at the endurance of a toad that got trapped in a cargo shipment from China to Cape Town，after jumping into a porcelain candlestick(燭臺)that was made there．South African officials reportedly planned to put down the creature，fearing it would cause harm as an invasive species if it were let go in the wild．
But the toad got a last-minute pardon．Mango Airlines，a South African airline，transported the toad，on Friday to Johannesburg for delivery to an animal shelter，after officials decided to find a way to let the toad live．The two-hour flight was a breeze compared to the trip from China，a long way of many weeks and thousands of kilometers across the Indian Ocean．
Airline spokesman Hein Kaiser said the toad got“first-class treatment”，sitting in a transparent plastic container with escort Brett Glasby，an animal welfare inspector．There was even a ceremony，in which the toad’s boarding pass was handed to Glasby.
“He was the star of the show on the flight，”Kaiser said of the amphibious(兩棲的)passenger．“I think every passenger stopped to have a look．”
On landing in Johannesburg，，the toad was brought out of its container for a celebrity-style photo shoot．Observers said the brown toad seemed like，a cool customer．It belongs to the Asian Toad species，which breeds during the monsoon(季風)season．It is believed to have survived the trip from China by hardening its skin to prevent it from drying out，and also by slowing its breathing and heart rate-methods that help the species survive in times of drought．
“We’ve had snakes in imported timber and scorpions(蝎子)in fruit．We were called because the toad was right inside the candlestick，and we had to break it to get it，out．”Glasby，the inspector，told The Star，a South African newspaper．
28．What is the passage mainly talking about?
A．Asian toads can’t get used to the life in South Africa．
B．South Africa ignores the protection of animals.
C．An Asian toad gets a new home in South Africa．
D．Workers shipped a toad to South Africa on purpose.
29．If the toad is released into the wild，___________.
A．it will make the locals feel shocked
B．it will lose its life in the wild
C．it might flee into another country
D．it might harm the native species
30．The toad was able to arrive in South Africa alive_________．
A．because it formed hard skin to protect itself
B．because it escaped all attacks and hunts
C．because it used to stop its breath in winter
D．because it was lucky to be given a chance
31．It can be inferred from the passage that__________.
A．a candlestick is the best place for a toad
B．droughts make toads live longer．
C．sometimes animals are transported accidentally
D．no one has seen such a big toad in Africa
When Dee Dee Bridgewater learned that she would become a 2017 NEA Jazz Master，a series of thoughts and feelings flooded her mind．“It was so far out of my orbit and just my whole sphere of thinking，”she said in a conversation at NPR this spring，hours before she formally received her award．
She’s 66—far from retirement age in jazz，and on the extreme forward edge of the NEA Jazz Masters people．So she was aware of her relative youth in the field．She also recognized that there haven’t been many women in the ranks of NEA Jazz Masters：fewer than 20，out of 145．That idea led her to reflect on her predecessors(前任)：legendary gingers like Betty Carter，who was seated back in 1992，and Abbey Licoln，who received the nod in 2003.
Bridgewater sought inspiration and advice from both Carter and Linco1n，as she recalls in this period of Jazz Night，which features music recorded during the season opener for Jazz at Lincoln Center．On the program called Songs of Freedom，organized by drummer Ulysses Owens，Jr．，Bridgewater sang material associated with Lincoln as well as Nina Simone：an extremely angry song of the civil rights movement，like“Mississippi Goddam”．
A separate concert，“Songs We Love”，found Bridgewater singing less politically charged (but still exciting)fare like“St James Infirmary”，which appears on her most recent album．In words as well as music，this period reveals how seriously Bridgewater takes that responsibility seeing as how it connects to her own experience in the jazz lineage．But maybe“seriously”isn’t the right word when it comes to Dee Dee，whose effervescence(歡騰)shines through even in a reflective mood．Join her here for a while；she’s excellent company，no more or less so now that mastery is officially a part of her resume．
32．What did Bridgewater think of her winning the award?
A．It’confused her .
B．It was beyond her expectation．
C．It won great popular support for her．
D．It gave her much confidence about her career．
33．What can we learn about the musicians wining NEA Jazz Masters?
A．Women ranked higher than men．
B．Men accounted for a bigger part of them．
C．Most of them were unwilling to retire at first．
D．Many of them received the award at an early age．
34．Who is more likely to have a great influence on Bridgewater?
A．Carter and Lincoln． B．Ulysses and Lincoln．
C．Nina Simone and Carter．D．Nina Simone and Ulysses．
35．What does the last paragraph mainly talk about?
A．Bridgewater’s music theme．
B．Bridgewater’s music experience．
C．Bridgewater’s personal characters．
D．Bridgewater’s great achievements．

Thanks for Taking Care of Me
Like most elementary schools，it was typical to have a parade of students in and out of the health clinic throughout the day．As principal，my office was right next door to the clinic，so I often dropped in to 1end a hand and 41 out with hugs．
One morning I was putting a Band-Aid on little Mary’s bloody knee and I 42 that she was shivering in her thin little shirt．I found her a warm sweater and helped her pull it on．“Thanks for 43 me，”she whispered．
It wasn’t long after that when cancer invaded me．I considered whether or not to tell the students about my 44 ．The word cancer seemed so frightening．When it became evident that the children were going to find out one way or another，I 45 to tell them myself．The empathy and 46 I saw in their faces told me I had made the right decision．When I gave them a 47 to ask questions，they 48 wanted to know how they could help．I told them that what I would like best would be their letters，pictures and prayers．
Little Mary threw herself into my arms and looked up into my face．“Don’t be afraid，Dr Perry，”she said earnestly，“It’s our 49 take care of you．”
No one 50 have ever done a better job．The kids sent me a book they had written and a video of every class in the schoo1 singing get-well songs．when I would have an operation，the letters and pictures 51 coming until they covered every wall of my room．What，healing 52 I found in being，surrounded by their caring!
At long last I was 53 enough to return to work．As headed up the road to the schoo1，I was suddenly overcome by 54 ”．“If the kids have forgotten all about me，what should I do? 55 they don’t want a skinny bald principal? Then I caught sight of the school marquee“Welcome Back，Dr Perry，”it read．As I 56 closer，everywhere I looked were pink ribbons． 57 ，flooded over me.
Little，Mary was first in line to 58 me．“Dr Perry，you’re back!”she called．“See，I to1d you we’d take care of you!”
What an amazing day! I didn't look for or expect anything in 59 when I helped them，but when they did return did favor，it was an enormous and positive 60 .
