A．By switching jobs regularly． C．By surfing the Internet． B．By sticking to your work． D．By hurrying around． C Using too much water or throwing rubbish into our rivers are clear ways that humans can put our water supply in danger, but we also affect our water supply in less obvious ways. You may wonder how paving (铺砌) a road can lead to less useable fresh water. A major part of the water we use every day is groundwater. Groundwater does not come from lakes or rivers. It comes from underground. The more roads and parking lots we pave, the less water can flow into the ground to become groundwater. Human activity is not responsible for all water shortages (短缺)．Drier climates are of course more likely to have droughts ( 干旱 ) than areas with more rainfall, but in any case, good management can help to make sure there is enough water to meet our basic needs. Thinking about the way we use water every day can make a big difference, too. In the United States, a family of four can use 1.5 tons of water a day! This shows how much we depend on water to live, but there's a lot we can do to lower the number. You can take steps to save water in your home. To start with, use the same glass for your drinking water all day. Wash it only once a day. Run your dishwasher (洗碗机) only when it is full. Help your parents fix any leaks in your home. You can even help to keep our water supply clean by recycling batteries instead of throwing them away. 8．Which of the following is most likely to lead to less groundwater? A. Using river water. C. Throwing batteries away. 9．What can be inferred from the text? A．It takes a lot of effort to meet our water needs. B．All water shortages are due to human behavior. C．There is much we can do to reduce family size. D．The average family in America makes proper use of water. 10．The last paragraph is intended to ________. A. show us how to fix leaks at home C. suggest what we do to save water at home B. tell us how to run a dishwasher D. prove what drinking glass is best for us B. Paving parking lots. D. Throwing rubbish into lakes.
11．The text is mainly about ________.
A. why paving roads reduces our water B. how human activity affects our water supply C. why droughts occur more in dry climates D. how much we depend on water to live D When something goes wrong， it can be very satisfying to say， ”Well, it’s so-and-so’s fault.” or “I know I’m late， but it’s not my fault； the car broke down.”It is probably not your fault， but once you form the habit of blaming somebody or something else for a bad situation，you are a loser. You have no power and could do nothing that helps change the situation. However, you can have great power over what happens to you if you stop focusing on whom to blame and start focusing on how to remedy the situation. This is the winner’s key to success. Winners are great at overcoming problems. For example, if you were late because your car broke down, maybe you need to have your car examined more regularly. Or, you might start to carry along with you the useful phone numbers, so you could call for help when in need. For another example, if your colleague causes you problems on the job for lack of responsibility or ability, find ways of dealing with his irresponsibility or inability rather than simply blame the person. Ask to work with a different person, or don’t rely on this person. You should accept that the person is not reliable and find creative ways to work successfully regardless of how your colleague fails to do his job well. This is what being a winner is all about—creatively using your skills and talents so that you are successful no matter what happens. Winners don’t have fewer problems in their lives; they have just as many difficult situations to face as anybody else. They are just better at seeing those problems as challenges and opportunities to develop their own talents. So, stop focusing on “whose fault it is.” Once you are confident about your power over bad situations, problems are just stepping stone for success. 12. According to the passage, winners A. blame themselves rather that others B. meet with fewer difficulties in their lives C. have responsible and able colleagues D. deal with problems rather than blame others .
13. The underlined word remedy in Paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to A. improve B. accept C. avoid D. consider .
14. When your colleague brings about a problem, you should A. blame him for his lack of responsibility B. find a better way to handle the problem C. tell him to find the cause of the problem D. ask a more able colleague for help 15. When problems occur, winners take them as A. excuses for their failures C. chances for self-development B. barriers to greater power
D. challenges to their colleagues
