A

One day Robin went with his family to eat in a restaurant. They were sitting at a table and waiting for their meal. Suddenly, everyone around them started to cover their noses. Some of them even left their tables and went away.

When Robin’s family turned around to see what had caused this, they saw two homeless boys. The boys looked dirty and smelled bad. But both boys were smiling and had beautiful blue eyes. They were looking for someone kind. One of the boys went to the counter and he counted the coins he had. The other boy looked sick and he stood quietly.

The young lady at the counter asked the boy what they wanted. He said, “We only want a cup of coffee. “ That was all they could afford. They wanted to sit in the restaurant and warm up. It was really cold outside. But to sit inside the restaurant, they had to buy something.

When Robin’s mother saw this, she wanted to help the boys. She ordered some more food. Then she went to the two boy’s table. She put the food on the table. The boys looked up at her and said, “Thank you. “ When Robin saw what his mother did, he understood what the unconditional(无条件的 ) love was. His mother treated those boys kindly. She did not expect anything in return. Now Robin saves his own pocket money and helps homeless people whenever he can.

21.Which of the following caused some people to leave their table?

A. They had finished their meals B. They thought the food was terrible.

C. Two boys came in and they smelled bad. D. There wasn’t enough food in the restaurant.

22. Why did two boys come to the restaurant?

B

People in the United States honor their parents with two special days:Mother‘s Day,on the second Sunday in May,and Father’s Day,on the third Sunday in June. These days are set aside to show love and respect for parents. They raise their children and educate them to be responsible citizens. They give love and care. These two days offer an opportunity to think about the changing roles of mothers and fathers. More mothers now work outside the home. More fathers must help with child care.

These two special days are celebrated in many different ways. On Mother’s Day people wear carnations(康乃馨). A red one symbolizes a living mother. A white one shows that the mother is dead. Many people attend religious services to honor parents. It is also a day when people whose parents are dead visit the cemetery. On these days families get together at home,as well as in restaurants. They often have outdoor barbecues for Father’s Day. These are days of fun and good feelings and memories.

Another tradition is to give cards and gifts. Children make them in school. Many people make their own presents. These are valued more than the ones bought in stores. It is not the value of the gift that is important,but it is “the thought that counts.” Greeting card stores, florists, candy makers, bakeries, telephone companies, and other stores do a lot of business during these holidays.

24. Which is NOT a reason for children to show love and respect for parents?

A. Parents bring up children B. Parents give love and care to children

C. Parents educate children to be good persons D. Parents pass away before children grow up

25. What do you know from the passage?

A. Mother‘s Day and Father’s Day are both in May.

B. Fewer women worked outside the home in the past.

C. Not all the children respect their parents.

D. Fathers are not as important as mothers at home.

26. On Mother‘s Day and Father’s Day,____ .

A. people usually have family parties B. everyone goes to visit the cemetery

C. children always go to parents’ home D. hand-made cards are the most valuable gifts

27. What do you think “florists” do?

A. They sell flowers. B. They make bread or pastry.

C. They offer enough room for having family parties.

D. They sell special clothes for Mother‘s Day and Father’s Day

 

C

I'm a pig,and my son is a rabbit. I have snakes for daughters,and my wife,believe it or not,is a dragon!Do I live in a zoo?No,of course not!I am talking about Chinese zodiac signs(十二生肖).Depending on the year of your birth,each person has an animal for a sign. That's why I am a pig and my wife is a dragon. If you,like me,were born in the year of the pig,then you are brave,thoughtful and loyal. The year of the pig is filled with good fortune.

Now let's take a closer look at this interesting animal.

Pigs were first raised by man about 9,000 years ago,and are still a very common farm animal in many parts of the world. We don't just use pigs for their meat—almost every part of the animal is used. The hair is used for artists' brushes. The fat is used to make floor wax,rubber and plastics.

Pigs have also been important in the world of entertainment. In 1995 the film Babe starred a loveable talking pig as its main character. The film won an Oscar and was nominated(提名)for 6 more. In England you can even go to watch pig racing. A farmer,Rob Shepherd,has been raising money for charity by holding pig races on his farm. The events have been very successful. People don't just want to eat pigs,it seems!

Pigs also play an important role in the English language. For example,if someone says that he will travel to the sun one day,you can say “Pigs might fly!” to him. Hungry? Well then,you can “pig out” and eat lots of food. And what if someone rescues you?Well,you can say that they “saved your bacon”.

28. The writer wrote the first paragraph in a ________ tone.

A. sad         B. confused C. serious      D. humorous

29. According to Paragraph One,his wife was born in the year of the ________.

A. dragon    B. snake    C. rabbit    D. pig

30. We may know from the passage that ________.

A. people in England like pigs more than other animals

B. pigs are more useful than ordinary people imagine

C. pigs are the first animals raised by man

D. more people don't want to eat pigs now

31. Which diagram shows the structure(结构)of the passage?

 

 

 

 

 

 

D

Why do some people live to be older than others? You know the standard explanations: keeping a moderate diet, engaging in regular exercise, etc. But what effect does your personality have on your longevity(长寿)? Do some kinds of personalities lead to longer lives? A new study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society looked at this question by examining the personality characteristics of 246 children of people who had lived to be at least 100.

The study shows that those living the longest are more outgoing, more active and less neurotic (神经质的) than other people. Long-living women are also more likely to be sympathetic and cooperative than women with a normal life span. These findings are in agreement with what you would expect from the evolutionary theory: those who like to make friends and help others can gather enough resources to make it through tough times.

Interestingly, however, other characteristics that you might consider advantageous had no impact on whether study participants were likely to live longer. Those who were more self-disciplined, for instance, were no more likely to live to be very old. Also, being open to new ideas had no relationship to long life, which might explain all those bad-tempered old people who are fixed in their ways.

Whether you can successfully change your personality as an adult is the subject of a longstanding psychological debate. But the new paper suggests that if you want long life, you should strive to be as outgoing as possible.

Unfortunately, another recent study shows that your mother’s personality may also help determine your longevity. That study looked at nearly 28,000 Norwegian mothers and found that those moms who were more anxious, depressed and angry were more likely to feed their kids unhealthy diets. Patterns of childhood eating can be hard to break when we’re adults, which may mean that kids of depressed moms end up dying younger.

Personality isn’t destiny(命运), and everyone knows that individuals can learn to change. But both studies show that long life isn’t just a matter of your physical health but of your mental health.

32. The aim of the study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society is ________.

A. to see whether people’s personality affects their life span

B. to find out if one’s lifestyle has any effect on their health

C. to investigate the role of exercise in living a long life

D. to examine all the factors contributing to longevity

33. What does the author imply about outgoing and sympathetic people?

A. They have a good understanding of evolution.

B. They are better at negotiating an agreement.

C. They generally appear more resourceful.

D. They are more likely to get over hardship.

34. What finding of the study might prove somewhat out of our expectation?

A. Easy-going people can also live a relatively long life.

B. Personality characteristics that prove advantageous actually vary with times.

C. Such personality characteristics as self-discipline have no effect on longevity.

D. Readiness to accept new ideas helps one enjoy longevity.

35. What does the recent study of Norwegian mothers show?

A. Children’s personality characteristics are invariably determined by their mothers.

B. People with unhealthy eating habits are likely to die sooner.

C. Mothers’ influence on children may last longer than fathers’.

D. Mothers’ negative personality characteristics may affect their children’s life spans.

 

第二节(共5小题,每小题2分,满分10分)

根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。

Are you embarrassed to recite in class because you might give the wrong answer? Are you ashamed to share your ideas in a group? If you find yourself being shy about a lot of things, you need to understand that being shy is a very big obstacle(障碍) to one's success.   36   .

First of all, you need to discover and understand the causes of your shyness.   37   . One of the biggest reasons why people are shy is that they were branded as a shy person. Because you heard it over and over, you believed it and thought it is true. If this is the cause, you need to stop this in your mind.   38   .

One way to stop your shyness in your mind is to focus less on your weakness.   39  . We all have our own unique strength. So if speaking in front of many people isn't your strength, that's okay. Maybe the strength you're given is in writing. And if you think there still a lot for you to improve on your strengths and talents, that's okay too.    40  .

A. All you need to do is spending time training yourself to be a master in your strengths.

B. You need to dig deep and get to the roots of your shyness.

C. Then try to replace it with positive things in your life.

D. When you doubt yourself, others will doubt you.

E. The good thing is that you can overcome it.

F. Stay fearless in everything you will have to do.

G. Instead, focus more on your strength.

As we all know, travelling can be a exciting experience. Let me give you some advices that you have to pay attention to. You can find out more about your destination by surf the Internet before you set out. You needn’t take too much cash. Although it can be very convenience to pay in cash, using cheques are much more reliable. In additional, it will be wise of you to take an umbrella in case of it should rain.

Keep in mind that being polite in foreign countries can help you have a wonderful trip.
