Two years ago, my friend and I were at college. With his birthday quickly approaching, he came to me with an unusual 21 : instead of receiving presents, he wanted to do some acts of kindness.
I was 22 for such an idea. Giving instead of taking for the birthday was really difficult. I asked him how he could come up with such a 23 idea. He told me about a TED talk he had watched on generosity, which had inspired him. So we started to 24 creative things we could do.
Our university employed some security guards to 25 its students. They have to work 26 , keeping watch on every corner throughout the university. For the most part it's a thankless job as most people grow 27 to seeing the guards all around and eventually barely notice their 28 , let alone acknowledge their efforts. How could we show them our appreciation?
We decided to make a large pot of hot 29 . We hired an Uber and asked the driver to take us around the campus where we knew the 30 would be and we poured them each a cup of hot chocolate. The Uber driver was 31 a bit doubtful to the entire plan but after a while he was helping us 32 the guards and our lively spirit had 33 to him as well. We were met with many 34 and appreciative words. It was amazing to see how a 35 act or even intention of generosity can lift everyone's spirit.

21.本空后的"instead of receiving presents, he wanted to do some acts of kindness"是作者的朋友提出的请求，那就是不接受礼物，而是做一些善事。request意为"请求"，符合语境。
22.根据下一句话中的"was really difficult"可知,作者对朋友的提议感到不知所措，因为自己也不知道该怎么做。be stuck for意为"不知所措,(为某事)犯愁"，符合语境。be blessed with"有幸拥有某物"；be burdened with"负重"；be bored with"(对某人/某物)厌倦的"。
24.正是因为深受鼓舞，他才有了这样的新颖的想法。作者接受了朋友的建议，所以开始尽可能想有创意的想法，为这些事情做好准备，plan out意为"精心安排，筹划"，符合语境。take over"接收，接管，控制，接替"；watch for"留意"；hold back"抑制，隐瞒"。
25.根据本句话中的"security guards"和下一句话中的"keeping watch on every corner"可知，作者和朋友想帮助大学里的安保人员，这些人要密切关注学生。monitor作动词意为"监视，检查，跟踪调查;监听"。
26.本句中的They指的是上一句话中的"security guards",这些安保人员要全天工作，around the clock意为"日夜不停"，符合语境。step by step"逐步地"；more or less"几乎，差不多"；now and then"偶尔"。
27.在很大程度上，这是一份吃力不讨好的工作，因为大多数人已经习惯了在周围看到安保人员，几乎注意不到他们的存在，更不用说认可他们的努力了。grow/get accustomed to意为"习惯于"。be addicted to"对......着迷的";be devoted to"全心全意的"；be attached to"附属于......"。
29.根据下一句话中的"poured them each a cup of hot chocolate"可知，作者和朋友的行动就是为这些保安做一大杯巧克力，所以选择D项。
31.根据句中的"a bit doubtful to the entire plan but after a while"可知，优步车司机起初有些弄不懂作者和朋友的做法，但是很快就明白了，initially意为"最初"，符合语境。occasionally"偶尔"； frequently"频繁地"。
32.根据本段第二句话中的"take us around the campus where we knew"可知，优步车司机也帮助作者和其朋友找到这些在不同位置的保安，spot意为"看见，注意到，发现"，符合语境。remind"提醒"；track"跟踪;追踪"；recognize"认出"。
35.结合上文可知，作者和朋友只是为这些保安做了一杯巧克力，但是这样的小小的善意的行为让大家都精神焕发，本空与句中的"lift everyone's spirit"形成鲜明的对比。
