Picking a university is a tense period of asking yourself which institution is most relevant. That’s why university rankings play such a vital role in students searching for their next academic direction. Rankings are also an inescapable part of the reputation and brand image of universities. “ No university website is complete without the claim to be in the top 100 for something or other，” reported the BBC. The reason is simple: rankings help them to attract students，staff and research investment.
Currently there are numbers of university rankings，and each has its own list of criteria. But the main categories are the same: academic reputations，graduates’ performance and faculty resources.
However, experts point out the ranking process isn’t entirely reliable. Mark Kantrowitz, a US financial aid researcher，said university rankings were mostly just for show. He wrote in The New York Times，“ It may give your parents better bragging rights，but that’s about it.”
Moreover，it’s not difficult to see the limitations of university rankings. Many rankings focus on the number of times research work is cited(引用) by other researchers. It helps British and US universities to dominate global rankings because English is the favored language of academia，John O’Leary，a member of the QS Global Academic Advisory Board，told The Guardian.
Also，rankings such as QS mainly focus on the qualities of the university rather than its students. “Any university ranking is likely to help students make better decisions about where to study，but the need to balance them with other more human factors is also important,” said Phil Moss，an education and admissions consultant. “Advice from graduates or current students can be valuable in providing a genuine insight into the experience or quality of a particular degree program. It can also add an element that rankings can never convey—the actual emotion of a university experience.”
24. Why do universities consider rankings important?
A. Rankings make them more appealing.
B. Rankings are students’ only reference.
C. Rankings can increase their academic level.
D. Rankings help them complete their websites.
25. What does the underlined “It” in Paragraph 4 refer to?
A. Academic research work. B. The number of researches.
C. The way of ranking universities. D. The limitations of university rankings.
26. According to John O’Leary，what helps British and US universities rank well?
A. The wide use of English in academia.
B. Their outstanding qualities.
C. Their graduates’ excellent performance.
D. The academia’s favor to them.
27. Besides rankings，what does Phil Moss suggest you should refer to if you’re picking a university?
A. Investment in education. B. Guidance from professors.
C. Information on websites. D. Suggestions from students.
Five years ago, when I taught art at a school in Seattle, I used Tinkertoys as a test at the beginning of a term to find out something about my students. I put a small set of Tinkertoys in front of each student, and said：“Make something out of the Tinkertoys. You have 45 minutes today—and 45 minutes each day for the rest of the week.”
A few students hesitated to start. They waited to see what the rest of the class would do. Several others checked the instructions and made something according to one of the model plans provided. Another group built something out of their own imaginations.
Once I had a boy who worked experimentally with Tinkertoys in his free time. His constructions filled a shelf in the art classroom and a good part of his bedroom at home. I was delighted at the presence of such a student. Here was an exceptionally creative mind at work. His presence meant that I had an unexpected teaching assistant in class whose creativity would infect(感染) other students.
Encouraging this kind of thinking has a downside．I ran the risk of losing those students who had a different style of thinking. Without fail one would declare, “But I’m just not creative.”
“Do you dream at night when you’re asleep？”
“So tell me one of your most interesting dreams.” The student would tell something wildly imaginative. Flying in the sky or in a time machine or growing three heads. “That’s pretty creative. Who does that for you？”
“Nobody. I do it.”
“Really—at night, when you’re asleep？”
“Try doing it in the daytime, in class, okay？”
28. The teacher used Tinkertoys in class in order to________．
A. know more about the students B. make the lessons more exciting
C. raise the students’ interest in art D. teach the students about toy design
29. What do we know about the boy mentioned in Paragraph 3?
A. He liked to help his teacher. B. He preferred to study alone.
C. He was active in class. D. He was imaginative.
30. What does the underlined word “downside” in Paragraph 4 probably mean?
A. Mistake. B. Drawback. C. Difficulty. D. Burden.
31. Why did the teacher ask the students to talk about their dreams?
A. To help them to see their creativity.
B. To find out about their sleeping habits.
C. To help them to improve their memory.
D. To find out about their ways of thinking.
A warm drink of milk before bed has long been the best choice for those wanting a good night’s sleep. But now a study has found it really does help people nod off—if it is milked from a cow at night.
Researchers have discovered that “night milk” contains more melatonin(褪黑激素), which has been proven to help people feel sleepy and reduce anxiety.
The study, by researchers from Seoul, South Korea, involved mice being fed with dried milk powder made from cows milked both during the day and at night.
Those given night milk, which contained 10 times the amount of melatonin, were less active and less anxious than those fed with the milk collected during daytime, according to the study published in The Journal of Medicinal Food.
Night milk quickened the start of sleep and caused the mice to sleep longer.
While the effect of cows milk harvested at different time has not been tested on humans up to now, taking melatonin drugs has been suggested to those who are struggling to fall asleep at night.
Previous studies have also indicated that milk can be excellent for helping sleep because of the calcium content, which helps people to relax.
Milk is also sugar-free and additive-free with nutritionists recommending skimmed milk as the best choice before bed as it is the least fattening. The more fat you take in before bedtime, the greater burden you will put on your body at night.
32. According to the text, the mice fed with daytime milk________．
A. started sleep more easily B. were more anxious
C. were less active D. woke up later
33. Which of the following is true of melatonin according to the text?
A. It’s been tested on mice for ten times. B. It can make people more energetic.
C. It exists in milk in great amount. D. It’s used in sleeping drugs.
34. What can be a suitable title for the text?
A. Night Milk and Sleep B. Fat Sugar and Health
C. An Experiment on Mice D. Milk Drinking and Health
35. How does the author support the theme of the text?
A. By giving examples. B. By stating arguments.
C. By explaining statistical data. D. By providing research results.
Team Building Tips for a Successful Team
If you want to create more effective groups and teams in the workplace, try putting a few of these tips into practice. 36
Communicate team goals clearly and often! 37 It’s natural that we all work harder if we know what we are working towards and why. Be sure to communicate goals more than once, or they aren’t likely to be remembered or understood clearly. Encourage team members to talk about the team goals, and ask questions until they are clear.
38 Everyone on your team should know what they are responsible for – both in their overall job and for each project they are working on. This makes it easier to stay on track. It also reduces the chance that some important things will get no attention or little effort spent on them.
Ask for help and give it too. You can survive on your own, or you can succeed with others’ help. If someone offers to help you, accept it. If you need help, ask for it. 39 Knowing when to ask for help is vital for your team’s success. And being willing to help your colleagues is a sign of a great team member.
40 For each of us, it’s more satisfying to work in areas of our natural strengths. We can work to our full potential, and reduce the feeling of frustration that come with not knowing what to do. One of the great benefits of working as part of a team is to have someone who can quickly and easily do something that would take another person many hours.
A. Attend the meeting regularly.
B. Define individual responsibilities.
C. Make full use of team members’ strengths.
D. You’re sure to see improvements in your team environment.
E. Discuss with your team the specific goals that need to be achieved.
F. Even if you are talented, you cannot know and do everything alone.
G. A sporting event or lunch in the park or restaurant can make your team better.

I was traveling in a small place in New York. That place had no taxi for a short 61 (distant). One had to take rickshaw (人力车).
I called out for an old man in the waiting line. Before I got on the rickshaw, I 62 (automatic) asked how much he would charge to take me across to the Mall. I 63 (tell) “10 dollars”. Then I started bargaining. He just gave a hard smile and said, “Whatever you feel like, please give me. It is not necessary 64 (bargain) on this small amount.”
I was a bit 65 (shame) of myself and kept quiet while he continued, “Unlike those taxis, my vehicle does not run on petrol or diesel or even gas; 66 runs on my sweat. So please give it to me 67 a smile, for the money has to feed so many 68 (hunger) mouths at home.”
When we reached the Mall, I gave him the money and the smile as 69 (request) and added a gentle pat on his back. He smiled back as if to give me 70 receipt and I would preserve his smile for a long time.
