    (Family Circle) No time for a complete spring clean? Skip the annual top-to-bottom, and focus on these five seasonal tasks. These maintenance must-do’s, on top of your regular clean routine, will set you up for an easy season.
    1. Caulk (填塞) cracks. Winter’s cold often leaves cracks in walls, inviting dust and pests in. Once the weather warms, grab a caulking tube and look for trouble spots—especially near doors, windows and some other openings.
    2. Protect your wood furniture with an annual coat of wax. Many furniture polishes contain oils, which actually attract dust. But with a coat of wax, furniture will need nothing more than a quick clean with a damp cloth.
    3. Wash windows in a flash by using a special bottle of window cleaner designed to attach to your garden hose (软管) (available at home centers). Spray (喷), let the solution sit on the glass for a minute, then hose it off with clear water.
    4. Change the air-conditioner filters (过滤器). A winter of forced-air heating dirties filter, so when the soon-to-be-cooled air hits a dirty filter, dust happens. Consider replacing that standard model with a HEPA filter, which screens out even the tiniest particles of dust.
    5. After cleaning winter debris (碎片) out of sliding glass-door tracks, rub a little wax into the tracks to repel dirt and to keep doors gliding smoothly.
    43. What’s the passage mainly about?
    A. How to protect wood furniture. B. Five ways to clean the room thoroughly.
    C. Five super shortcuts to speedy spring clean.
    D. How to clean the room in different seasons.
    44. What should we do with the wood furniture every year?
    A. Caulk cracks on the surface of the wood furniture.
    B. Use oil to polish the furniture.
    C. Use a special bottle of window cleaner to clean the wood furniture.
    D. Wax the wood furniture.
    45. What probably is the underlined word “solution”?
    A. A kind of liquid. B. A method to solve a problem.
    C. A kind of pipe. D. A kind of gas.
    46. What should we do with the glass door every year?
    A. Rub the glass. B. Wax the door frame.
    C. Wax the door tracks. D. Use the garden hose to clean the glass door.
    D★★★
    The world economy is uncertain, and for many people job-hunting has become a lifestyle. With takeovers, bankruptcies and new government legislation, you could be unemployed overnight—even if you own the company!
    Make it a priority (优先考虑的事) to let your network of personal friends, and business acquaintances know where you are and what you’re doing at all times, especially when you change jobs or addresses. Announce changes even if it’s an intercompany move.
    Once you land a job, you get busy packing, moving, tying up loose ends, and taking on the duties of the new assignment; but that’s a mistake. Remember, your first duty is to your career. This doesn’t mean your new assignment isn’t important. It means your friendships and your personal future are equally important.
    The quickest way to handle the thank-you task is to give your letter and mailing list to a secretarial service. Let them type and address the letters; you sign them. This requires very little time and energy, probably less than two hours. Believe me, it’s time well spent, and you can enclose your new business card. E-mail is also effective, but it’s less personal. As readers are bombarded by e-mails, paper letters are becoming more attention-getting and memorable.
    The “Announce New Job” letter is a good model. It’s a combination newsletter, change of address, and thank-you, all in one—and it’s limited to one page.
    The best time to find a new job is when you don’t need one, and the best time to cultivate business relationships is when everything is going smoothly.
    47. The major purpose for the writer to write this passage is _____.
    A. to analyze the reason for frequent job-huntings
    B. to tell us how to get used to our new jobs as soon as possible
    C. to remind us to keep in touch with our friends and business partners at all times
    D. to advise us on how to find a suitable job
    48. If you want to inform your friends or business partners of your current job and address, you’d better _____.
    A. make phones to them one by one B. send e-mails to them
    C. write paper letters by yourself to them one by one
    D. ask someone else to type the “Announce New Job” letters and you sign them
    49. It can be inferred from the passage that _____.
    A. as long as you do well in your job, you won’t lose your job
    B. you are not supposed to find a new job if you have a high-paying job now
    C. you should try to look for some other jobs which fit you even you are quite satisfied with your current job
    D. you should find as many jobs as you can
    50. When you write the “Announce New Job” letters, you should NOT _____.
    A. spend too much time B. enclose your business card
    C. write only one page D. express thanks to your friends

    To be sure, only children experienced some things differently from those with sisters and brothers. Many feel more pressure to succeed. They also tend to look only to their parents as role models in the absence of brothers and sisters.
    In India, 10-year-old Saviraj Sankpal founded a support group for the tiny minority of only children. Among other things, the group does volunteer work to counter (反对) the myth that they are not responsible. People think we're treated too kindly and ruined, says Sankpal, a computer engineering student. But I'd like to remind them how lonely it can get.
    Most only children, however, say they wish for sisters or brothers only when it comes to caring for aging, unhealthy parents. Britain's David Emerson, co-author of the book The Only Child, says that such a person bears terrible burden in having to make all the decisions alone. Emerson knows from experience: After his father died, he chose to move his elderly mother from their family home, where she was vulnerable (易受攻击的) to house breakers, to a new one with more security. The move was quite hard on her, and she might feel that I pushed her into it, he says, After all, I am left with that responsibility.
    In the future, more and more only children will likely face similar choices. With working mothers increasing, many families have found they simply don't have the time, money or energy to have more than one child. As only children become common, perhaps the world will realize that the charge(指控) made against them is unjust.
    51. It can be inferred from the passage that the author's attitude towards only children is _______.
    A. ironic B. objective C. unfriendly D. unjust
    52. It can be inferred from the passage that only children's parents should ___________.
    A. found a support group for their only children
    B. do volunteer work to help their only children
    C. let their only children make all the decisions alone
    D. set good examples to their only children
    53. Emerson decided to move his elderly mother to a new house because he ___________.
    A. is the only one who cares about her B. doesn't want to leave her alone
    C. wants to share the responsibility with her D. is worried about her safety
    54. It is quite usual now for a working mother to ____________.
    A. spend all her time and money on her only child
    B. be responsible for bringing up her only child
    C. have and bring up only one child
    D. devote all her energy to her job
    55. The main idea of the passage is that ________.
    A. only children are ruined and irresponsible
    B. only children have to face many challenges
    C. most only children want to have brothers and sisters
    D. most only children share their responsibility with their parents
