21.(6分)HAVE you ever gotten a song kept in your head?You sing it all the time﹣on your way to school，before sleep，even when you're sitting on the toilet.You want to forget it，but the music just keeps sounding in your head.
Some people call these annoying songs"earworms"because they are just like parasites(寄生虫)﹣they"live"in your ears and refuse to leave even when you tell them to.
But why do some songs become earworms and not others?According to Ira Hyman，a music psychologist at Western Washington University，people are more likely to remember songs that are simple and repetitive，especially ones with that type of music."Choruses tend to get stuck in your head because they are the bit we know best，"Hyman told The Tele﹣graph.
If you've got an earworm，you can suffer an attack without even hearing it.Seeing words from the song or hearing someone mention it could both cause the domino effect that starts the song running.
Scientists have been trying to find a solution to deal with earworms.They say the best way is to fill your mind with something else.But here is the tricky part：the task you do should be neither too hard nor too easy.The harder you try not to think about the music，the more you won't be able to help it.On the contrary，a task like jogging which is too easy won't keep your brain busy enough，and that could allow the song to come back.
"The key is to find something that will give the right level of challenge."said Hymen.Reading a difficult book or a good novel could count.

24.(8分)I can well remember the pain.My stomach was sick，my heart hurt，and my eyes painful from holding hack tears.
"You know，Annie，"my friend John said，"Joanna and Andrea were just talking about You."I immediately got nervous."They said that the only reason you start on the basketball team is because the coach likes you.It's not because you're good."I thought I might be sick."They said they're tired of you always getting what you want."
I struggled to keep myself from crying，sinking to my knees on the cold floor.After John told me everything my supposed best friends said about me，I was hurt.
Joanna and Andrea came in from lunch break acting as if nothing had happened.Joanna was still my deskmate，and Andrea was still my partner for our history project.I was amazed at their ability to pretend we had perfect friendship，especially since they'd said such hurtful things.
I was a freshman in high school，and I felt like I didn't have a friend in the world，all because of a gossip.
The tongue can be our worst enemy.Gossips harm confidence and separate close friends.They are like sharp knives，cutting one's self﹣respect into pieces.When we say unkind things about others，we're sticking knives into their hearts.
So how was I to act next?When Joanna and Andrea pretended our friendship hadn't changed，I thought of attacking them back.But instead，I told them directly that they had hurt me.Joanna started crying and Andrea was speechless.I knew they were both sorry for what they had said.They apologized，and I forgave them.Sure，things were a little uncomfortable at first，but soon enough everything was back to the way it had been before.
I still deal with gossip，sometimes as a receiver and sometimes as a sharer.But the more I learn about love，the more I realize the importance of encouraging others﹣something gossip never does.

32.(8分)Coffee shops are visited by hundreds of thousands of us every day.While we drink our coffee，we may connect our smartphone to the shop's Wi﹣Fi network，and keep in touch with friends via services such as QQ and Alipay.

These networks are often given names，such as"Free Public Wi﹣Fi"，which cheat smartphone users to log in.It seems that everything is OK，and you will be able to connect just as you are with a legal Wi﹣Fi service.
