Why it matters that teens are reading less?
36.[E] That may be true, but that still does not tell us much about what happens across a whole generation of people when time spent on digital media grows.Large surveys con-ducted over the course of many years tell us that American youth are not going to the cinema nearly as often as they did in the past.
37.[B]Analysis of surveys of over one million teens in the United States collected since 1976 reveals a major shift in how teens are spending their leisure time. Paper books are being ignored, in favor of screens.…….
38.[G] Indeed, the number of senior high school students who said they had not read any books for pleasure in the last year was one out of three by 2016. That is triple the number from two decades ago.……
39.[D]If teens are spending so much time using electronic devices, does that mean they have to give activities? Maybe not. Over the years, many scholars have insisted that time online does not necessarily take away time spent engaging with traditional media or on other activities.…
40[.A] Most of us spend much more time with digital media than we did a decade ago.But today's teens have grown up with smartphones. Compared with teens a couple of de-cades ago, the way they interact with traditional media like books and movies is fundamentally different.…

42.[c] Teens did not always spend that much time with digi-tal media. Online time has doubled since 2006, and social media use has moved from a periodic activity to a daily one in the same period.By 2016, nearly nine out of ten young women in the 12th grade said they visited social media sites every day.……
43.[F]But the treads related to movies are less disturbing compared with the change in how teens spend their time. Research has revealed an enormous decline in reading.In 1980, about 60 percent of senior high school students said they read a book, newspaper or magazine every day that was not assigned for school.By 2016, only 16 percent did.

Karez is a water conservancy system found in the dry region of Xinjiang, in which underground channels join wells to-gether. The system collects a large amount of rainwater and melted snow water that seep underground, and drains the water to the ground by the natural mountain slope for the irrigation of fields and the daily use. Karez reduces the evap-oration on the ground and does little harm to the surface, thus protecting natural resources and the ecological envi-ronment effectively. The system embodies the Chinese wisdom that people and nature co-exist in harmony, and is well recognized as a major contribution to the human civili-zation.
Directions: Suppose your university student union is planning to hold a speech contest. You are now to write a proposal for organizing the contest. The proposal may include the topic, aim, procedure and selection of the contestants. You will have 30 minutes to write the proposal. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
To whom it may concern,
On behalf of the Students’ Union, I am writing to make a proposal for the upcoming speech contest. The detailed information about this event will be listed in the following.
First, I suggest that the contest should be held in the school auditorium at 7 p.m. next Friday. As for the speech topic, "living a healthy lifestyle" would be a good choice, since this subject can draw students’ attention to some social phenomena, such as addiction to computer games. Secondly, the contest will be an English one, which aims to arouse college students’ learning passion for English. As for procedure, it will consist of two rounds of speeches, and all the participants need to submit their speech draft in advance. The planned number of the contestants is 20 and students from every department are qualified to sign up. Finally, the committee is to invite professional teachers to score and some students to form a panel of judges to rate the contestants comprehensively as well. In this way, the best ten contestants can be selected wisely.
I believe this school-wide event will be successfully held and inspire all the students on campus. I am looking forward to your feedback.
