Passage 1 (09·安徽) 完形填空
After spending a weekend away with my adult son, I was so impressed by his generous heart that I sent him this letter.
I want to thank you for teaching me a very __1__ lesson in life by the great example you __2__ . When we were eating at that café in Bondi and a person who had __3__ his hamburger didn’t have enough money to pay for it, without any __4__ , you went over and put the __5__ $2 into his hand.
When we were leaving, you __6__ threw a five-cent coin onto the pavement and said __7__ like, “Some kid will really enjoy __8__ this.”
Last week, a young man __9__ me in the line at a petrol station didn’t have __10__ money to pay for his petrol. I asked the money collector, “How much __11__ is he?” She told me he had meant to put $15 of petrol in his car __12__ he had been looking at the wrong gauge(计量表) and had put in 15 __13__, which came to just over __14__ . That is an easy mistake __15__ both gauges run fast.
Something made me think of you and __16__ you did that night at the café in Bondi. I handed the man $6. He was so __17__ and said, “But why would you do this for me?” I just smiled as I thought of you.
Thank you, son, for teaching me that “it’s __18__ to give than receive”. Now when I see a five-cent coin on the __19__ and want to pick it up, I think of you and leave it __20__, just in case some kid will get a kick out of finding it.
Love always, Mum
