D. he or she often considers annoying people B With the average home in the capital selling for 19,548 yuan a meter in November, a tiny mobile home built by a 24-year-old office worker is creating a stir(震动) online. Dai Haifei built the 6-square-meter pad(住所) because he could not afford to buy or rent in the capital. Dai?s new home costs him 6,400 yuan and he has been living in it for nearly two months in courtyard at Chengfu Road, Haidian district. Dai, who is one of the millions of migrants who moved to the capital from other parts of China seeking a better life and better job, said he realized his financial burden had become too great. The Hunan native said he simply could not make ends meet(收支相抵) when he became an intern at a Beijing-based construction design company in 2009. “I rented a home at the very beginning--a small room in an apartment that cost me about 900 yuan per month,” said Dai in an interview with local media. “It was too expensive for me. ” Dai?s father works on a construction site in his hometown and his mother is a cleaner. Dai, who ended up becoming a formal employee of the company, figured out his own way to solve the problem---with inspiration from a housing design project at his company?s exhibition early this year. The project, named“An egg given birth to by the city”, included a series of egg-like movable houses, with a karaoke house, chair house and trader ?s house in it. Dai, who borrowed 6,400 yuan from an older cousin and who got additional help from several friends, decided to make one of his own. He spent nearly two months building his“egg house”in his hometown, a village in southeast Hunan that is around 1,700 kilometers from Beijing. 61. Where is this passage probably taken from? A. A story book. B. A cartoon film. C. A news report. D. A research report. 62. What is Dai Haifei? A. An official of government. B. A journalist. C. An office worker of a company. D. A manager of a company. 63. Why did he build the pad? A. Because he will sell it for money. B. Because he has no house to get married in. C. Because he doesn?t have enough money to buy or rent a house. D. Because he wants to get help from the society. 64. Which statement is not TRUE? A. He comes from a Hunan village. B. He has lived in the egg home for two months. C. He got the idea from a friend. D. He once rented a room. 65. What?s the writer ?s attitude? A. Supporting. B. Puzzled. C. Criticizing. D. Objective.

The activity is part of a program called “Beautiful Me.” The program?s goals are to help girls achieve a normal and healthy level of self-respect and develop basic skills of solving problems and handling relationships with others. So far, about 6,000 girls in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, have joined in it. The organizers of “Beautiful Me” train teachers to present the program material to small groups of girls. They guide groups to carry out different activities. The activities include hands-on art activities, role-playing games and discussions on topics like making lasting friendships. Groups will show their performance, when they are ready. The organizers of “Beautiful Me” say the program helps girls understand their feelings, solve problems and get along well with others. Anna Craig says that she learns so many things from the program. But most importantly, she starts to appreciate the special qualities of other people.

Section C (10 points) Directions: Read the following passage. Answer the questions according to the information given in the passage and required words limit. Write your answers on your answer sheet. When most people travel, they spend some time booking hotel rooms. However, my friend Ashley and I were not like most people many years ago. We decided that backpacking through Ireland would be more fun if we “winged it”. Winging it, of course, meant that we?d each buy a one-way ticket to Dublin, and give ourselves ten days to get back to Bath, England, where we were enrolled in a study-abroad program. The plan was to visit Dublin, Galway, Cong, and finally end things in Belfast, where we figured we could catch a flight back to England. Unfortunately, Ireland had other plans for us, as nothing worked out the way in which we thought it would. After getting stuck in Galway and Cong for about seven days, we finally managed to take a bus trip from Cong to Belfast. The twelve-hour bus ride started at ten in the morning, which meant that we?d arrive in the heart of Belfast at around ten at night. Of course, like all transport, the bus ran late, and we ended up in Belfast at around eleven-thirty at night. As there were a ton of hotels around the area where it dropped us off, we weren?t too worried about finding a hotel room. But hotel after hotel turned us down. After the third hotel turned us down and the fourth one was locked up for the night, Ashley and I started to realize that we had to spend a long night sleeping on a city bench. Like militant soldiers, we slept in turn as we were worried we would get robbed. The system worked, as we were able to stay safe while catching as much sleep as we could on the bench. From this experience, I really learnt a good lesson. 86. Why did the author and his friend decide to wing it when they went to travel in Ireland? (No more than 8 words) 87. What did the author and his friend do in Bath, England? (No more than 8 words) 88. How long did it take the author and his friend to get to Belfast from Cong by bus? (No more than 5 words) 89. Why did the author and his friend have to take turns to sleep?
