Passage 1 回答21-25题
No matter how carefully you pick the members on your team, you may still end up with a negative employee. These workers don’t necessarily fall into the category of “toxic,” but they’re just kind of a drag with their cynical, pessimistic worldview. If you’re dealing with a negative employee, here are 3 steps to take.
FIND OUT WHY
If you decide to proceed in addressing the behavior, think about whether there have been behavior changes recently. Is the negativity a constant or has the behavior escalated? If the latter, was there an event that led up to the change? Individuals in the workplace live multi-dimensional lives, and other non-workplace stressors may impact work productivity and mood. In an April 2016 report in the Journal of Managerial Psychology, a team of Toronto researchers found that employee who are cynical of their workplace may feel more positive if their managers are supportive.
When discussing the situation with your negative employee, it is recommended to frame the discussion in the context of the individual’s goals. “Tone policing” where you simply point out pessimistic commentary without addressing the root cause, rarely works and may just cause more resentment. Get to the root of the issue and find out if the employee needs additional training, perhaps in management or communication skills, to overcome a deficit.
A direct solutions-oriented conversation with the employee can uncover problems or circumstances driving the behavior. If there are workplace issue that can be solved, consider doing so if it makes sense. If there are personal issues that have caused an escalation in negative behavior, examine whether accommodations can be made to help the person while they’re going through such challenges. Some employees don’t have great interpersonal skills and putting them in jobs where they are more focused on job-related tasks than on interactions with others can be an effective solution, too. ）。
21.This article is most likely taken from _______.
22.According to paragraph two, what can result in the escalated negative behavior of an employee?
23.It can be inferred from the article that ______.
24.According to paragraph three, what does the phrase “tone policing” mean?
25.According to paragraph four, what is NOT a solution to the negativity?

Amazon will hold its third annual mid-summer sale for subscribing Prime members. Last year they had an estimated 100,000 items discounted and while these are not always the lowest prices you’ll see in a year (those generally come around Black Friday) it is a good mid-year opportunity to score a bargain.
It’s Prime week, not just Prime Day now. While the lion’s share of the deals will go live July 10 at 9 p.m. ET and end July 12th at 3 a.m. ET, the company will be offering discounts in the days leading up to the big event, many of them are live now.
Amazon describes the deals in its press release like this: “Amazon Music Unlimited — Prime members who haven’t yet tried Amazon Music Unlimited can get the best deal in Amazon Music history — four months of the full catalog on-demand service with access to tens of millions of songs, for just $0.99.

Passage 3 回答31-35题
Electric cars are dirty. In fact, not only are they dirty, they might even be more dirty than their gasoline-powered cousins.
People in California love to talk about “zero-emissions（排放）vehicles,” but people in California seem to be clueless about where electricity comes from. Power plants mostly use fire to make it. Aside from the few folks who have their roofs covered with solar cells, we get our electricity from generators（发电机）. Generators are fueled by something — usually coal, oil, but also by heat generated in nuclear power plants. There are a few wind farms and geothermal（地热的）plants as well, but by far we get electricity mainly by burning something.
In other words, those “zero-emissions” cars are likely coal-burning cars. It’s just because the coal is burned somewhere else, so it looks clean. It is not. It’s as if the California greens are covering their eyes — “If I can’t see it, it’s not happening.” Gasoline is an unbelievably efficient way to power a vehicle; a gallon of gas has a lot of energy in it. But when you take that gas（or another fuel）and first use it to make electricity, you waste a nice part of that energy, mostly in the form of wasted heat — at the generator, through the transmission lines, etc.
A gallon of gas may propel your car 25 miles. But the electricity you get from that gallon of gas won’t get you nearly as far — so electric cars burn more fuel than gas-powered ones. If our electricity came mostly from nukes, or geothermal, or hydro, or solar, or wind, then an electric car truly would be clean. But for political, technical, and economic reasons, we don’t use much of those energy sources.
In addition, electric cars’ batteries which are poisonous for a long time will eventually end up in a landfill（垃圾）and finally, when cars are the polluters, the pollution is spread across all the roads. When it’s a power plant, though, all the junk is in one place. Nature is very good at cleaning up when things are not too concentrated, but it takes a lot longer when all the garbage is in one spot.
31.What’s the main idea of the passages?
32.Which of the following words can replace “be clueless about” in Paragraph 2?
33.The electricity we get from a gallon of gas may make our car run ______.
34.In the author’s opinion, compared with cars using gas, electric cars are more ______.
35.It can be inferred from the passage that ______.
Passage 4 回答36-40题
The Shanghai Technical Supervision Bureau recently released the results of a sample survey of 486 Model computers being sold in the city’s markets. The survey revealed that nine of 14 types, or 64 percent of imported brand-name computers fulfilled the standards.
A large number of the low-quality “foreign” computers which were marketed as world-famous brands were actually counterfeited shoddy products lacking the necessary information such as registered trademarks, factory of origin, quality certifications and safety indices.
In addition, a survey of Shanghai footwear markets conducted by the Bureau on 30-odd occasions since early this year indicated various brands of “foreign shoes”, including Nike and Puma, were low-quality counterfeited goods. The allegedly world-famous brands, priced between 300-500 Yuan per pair, were actually worth only 40-60 Yuan.
An official from the China Consumer Association pointed to the following complaints concerning “foreign goods”: Quality problems related to individual commodities have developed into a universal problem directly relate to batch shipments of commodities. It is thus quite obvious that the crackdown on counterfeit shoddy foreign goods is a task requiring the utmost immediacy.
The appearance of shoddy counterfeit foreign goods has adversely affected the normal operations of China’s real foreign-goods markets, has greatly harmed the interests of consumers and resulted in substantial losses in state tax revenue. Officials have pointed out that the key to cracking down on counterfeit foreign goods is to attack illegal acts related to selling sham（虚假的）foreign goods at the prices applicable for authentic products.
Officials recommend that commodity inspection, technical supervision and industrial and commercial departments should strengthen law enforcement efforts, increase the frequency of inspections, and eliminate the sources of sham foreign goods.
Enterprises producing and marketing sham foreign goods should be subject to severe punishment, with all cases referred to the judicial departments for adjudication, and public supervision should be intensified.
Consumers, on the other hand, should make every effort to constantly enhance their ability to discern counterfeit foreign goods, and should refrain from blindly purchasing such products simply because of their low price.
36. The sample survey on computers discovered that ______.
37.The survey on Shanghai footwear markets showed that ______.
38.An official from the China Consumer Association pointed out that ______.
39.One of the negative effects of counterfeit foreign goods was that ______.
40.It is suggested in the passage that consumers ______.
